So they were doped.

I don’t get all the drama surrounding the olympics when they find out that a few athletes were on drugs.

So, what?

I figure that they are ALL doped, but only a few were caught. Keep their blood on file and test it again in ten years when we can find MORE of these substances than we can now.

Besides, look at the performance of the doped athletes. If we assume that the others aren’t on drugs, and the drugged athletes aren’t gold, silver, or bronze medalists – what’s the harm? How shitty must the drugged athletes be that they need drugs to perform “mediocre”? Without drugs they’d appear like regular people.

It doesn’t surprise me that anyone in the olympics was drugged. It didn’t shock me. And it will NEVER shock or surprise me. If you were truly shocked/surprised by any of it, then you are a fool who doesn’t see the world how it is

1507

Praised be the lobbyists, GMO Corn 1507 is finally allowed in the EU!
I just hope our farmers won’t use it. Let them learn a lesson from Brazil and it’s farmers: 1507 is supposed to kill pests, that was going well for two seasons, but in the third one – holy crap, the critters have adapted (dare I say “evolved”?) to tolerate it.
Now the farmers are back to square one. They HAVE to buy the seeds, for a higher prize than regular seeds, and because the vermin has adapted – they HAVE to buy pesticides. (From the same company that sells 1507, mind you!)

Now, why am I not surprised? We’re tampering with things here that we can’t even begin to comprehend. (You know my stance on religion, so fear not that I’m going into a rant about “playing god”.) Nature, evolution in particular, is WAY beyond our understanding. For MILLIONS of years nature had evolved, and only for a few thousand have there been humans around. We began meddling with plants and their properties only a few thousand years ago.
Now we start tampering with genes and look what happens: CRAP!
We turn food into poison (farmers of GMO crops sometimes experience ill effects of it, as soon as they switch back to “normal” stuff, they’re back to normal) and the pests we sought to kill with it, adapt.
Just like with fission and fission bombs, we’re a toddler wielding a loaded gun here.
It’s only a question of WHEN, not IF, someone will get injured or killed in that scenario. Perhaps the toddler himself.

Let’s step back for a moment and think of what we could do instead of the things we do: Solar panels and wind turbines can give us pollution free electricity. No more fission.
Throw the leaders of warring tribes/nations/factions into a pit, hand them knives and the winner takes it all (unless he too dies of njuries, then we rinse and repeat with the seconds in command). No more nukes and warfare. No mines that kill children playing soccer in a field.
Hedges. Yes, hedges between and IN fields. Keeps the natural killers of our vermin around. You know what eats leaf-lice? Ladybugs. You know what pollinates your corn? BEES, they also like other blossoms. So, keep hedges around. Keeps the wind from picking up speed and eroding the soil away after harvest, and provides a home for usefull insects and birds. Build electric cars (you can charge them with your clean solar/wind energy). No more CO2 pollution, no more rising gas prizes, no more stinking cities. (IF you don’t believe in global warming you’re probably an idiot, but okay. Just look at the prize of gas, and now think what you can SAVE when you had a bigg-ass solar panel on your house and could charge your E-car for free!!!)

In conclusion: Wake up to reality! It’s not all what you think it is. It’s not as safe as you are made to think.

Stuff 8th August 2013

Story:
Just to keep you folks up to date, I am done with the fourth part of Finns (see here for details) and now I’m taking a break. As things are right now there will be no “Journals of the Hexagon”, at least not now. The grand finale is looming ahead and gruesome battles and wars await, so I guess after my “break” I’ll jump into that. The soonest I will pick up again will be on Monday, leaving my mind enough time to wind down. AND to allow me for reading.

Reading:
Currently on the menue, Game of Thrones! Finally coming around to read it, can’t wait for the point in time when I have read them all and finally can watch the TV show and bitch about how it strays away from the books… :Þ (Yes, I like to do that, did it with hannibal in reverse Movie first, then book, and still loved the book far more)

Heat:
So this is the end, huh? Today the heatwave is said to have it’s grand finale with a bang….or rather a loud muffled sigh. 40°C would be a new record high in this country.
Although I love heat, it stopped being fun a week ago or so. A long persitant heatwave like this is not fun anymore. For weeks on end I’m encrusted with a thin salt layer, still moist and anything but stiff, but a crust nonetheless – I am fed with it by now. Bring on a little rain, thunderstorms, WIND!
A turkish explorer/traveler from medival times refered to my hometown as “the city of winds” as there’s ALWAYS a wind blowing though the valleys. We live in fracking swamp! Or at least what once in roman times WAS a swamp. There IS a lot of wind here. Not recently.
I’m surprised though, no global warming slogans all around me? Really? This is the perfect opportunity!
Oh wait, let me guess – the protesters are too hot and have retreated to indoors where the AC cools them down.
Hipocrites.

Douchebag alert!
I saw a man two days ago in the subway. The amount of hipster-douchebag was over 9000!!! The thick glasses, ridiculous hairdo and shitty clothes gave him away as a hipster right away – but that is something you can change if need be. Styles come and go, and you grow out of a certain apparel (my son grew pout of the first apparel just yesterday), you mature and you change.- If you DON’T change you stagnate, and that is as good as withered and dead on a mental level.
BUT! This idiot had a tatoo on his arm that made me remember him!
A cube. A fracking cube!!!
All the edges of that cube – like you draw in geometry class – and no sides/walls to it. This thing is almost forever etched into his skin! Forever branded as a douché! Good job idiot.
BTW: Why do women dislike sex with a hipster? He came before it was cool…. *badum tss*

And because of the long post, here’s a sunrise to make up for it:

Global Warm my ass….please?

You know Odin promised he’d rid of the ice giants. This icy cold tells me he stopped helping us…

For real, I’m not one of the ignorant deniers. I’m not going to say that climate change isn’t happening because god/s won’t let it happen. Or because it always got hotter and colder in the past.

But I’m saying that global WARMING is bullshit!

Why would I say this as an educated, non ignorant person of 21st century central Europe?
Hang on.

After the longest, coldest and darkest winter in several decades here in Europe, I soaked up every bit of sunshine and warm temperatures, only to be thrown into a second coming of winter just now.

In early October 2012 I got my leather jacket from the closet. Put it on in the morning, took it off at work, put it on when going home, and took it off when there.
So for October, November, December, January, February, March and a bit of April I wore my jacket. Don’t get me wrong, I love my leather jacket. But after wearing it for more than six months, I’m sick and tired of it!

BUT, it’s colder now than it was on Christmas eve!
For crying out loud, I took the friggin’ leather jacket out of the closet!
It should remain in there until mid October. Temperatures in the next few days are said to remain cold. It’s the end of May, and I’m running around in my winter apparel! END OF MAY!
For the love of Odin!

Here’s why I think that global WARMING is a pile of bovine excrements: If the Golf of Mexico, that is warming Europe with warm water and air, should stop flowing – likely to happen if the temperature and salinity in it gets changed too much due to warmer temperatures melting ice into it – average temperatures in Europe would DROP by about 5° centigrade. So the global WARMING thingy is just utter crap, at least to me.
Global climate change on the other hand…

Take care,

Spring…

…has got me in it’s clutches, wringing the sweet life out of me, choking me with powerfull hands around my throat and numbing smells in my nose…yes, my allergies have gotten the best of me.

As every year.

On the other hand, two weeks ago I was running around in boots, T-Shirt, shirt and leather jacket, now I sweat if I step outside. I like climate change (say global warming just one time and I’ll suffocate you in snow! Not after this terribly long winter!) sometimes. Everyday the chestnut trees in our street have become greener and greener over the last week. At first only green hints appeared, to be quickly extended to green leaves the next day. IF we still leave near there next year I will take pictures.

The smell of spring / summer is in the air. Although it strangles me, I love it, after smelling only the icy cold and the rotting autumn leaves.

Still, my allergies have the disturbing sideeffect that reality becomes a strange thing. I feel spaced out as if on heavy drugs – or at least some good weed. Time constantly changes its pace, what was yesterday seems like five weeks ago, what has been three days earlier seems like a few minutes ago.
At least gravity keeps the same.
Unlike that one time…I digress.

If my style of posting blurbs/comedy changes in the next few days/weeks (and very recently) – its only temporary, and it should return back to normal once main allergy season has blown over. 🙂

Until such time, keep up with my changed style, it still is me talking, although through a haze of pollen…
