The wheels on the bus…

The other day in the bus:

I had just picked up my son from kindergarten, the bus had stopped at a red light and bus stop, the light turned green, we moved on, however, one car in the lane next to us honked at the driver in front of them to get moving, my son turns over in the direction of the honking car and yells for the entire bus to hear: “Stop with Tutu, or I’ll set you on fire!”

What is the correct parental response to this?

A high five?

Asking him where he picked THAT up?

Turning on Rammstein – Benzin?

I don’t know whether to be a proud dad, or to be worried. I don’t even know how to feel about this. There’s a delighted joy, there’s pride, but also worry and a bit of shame. (The people on the bus heard, they laughed, but surely also judged.)

FYI, I went with laughter, imagining a high five, and then asking him where he picked it up. He claimed he taught it to himself, that he’ll take a candle and burn the car…

Take care, A.

Vaccines AGAIN!

You know, I have a schedule.
Monday and Thursday – Story parts, Friday – Blurps/Comedy. I write these bits days, weeks and sometimes months in advance, so I won’t end up with NO post one day.
So, as I’ve said, I have a schedule…

And YOU short sighted, pro-disease, pro-death, spinach milkshake, homoepathy hippie dipshits keep frakking it up!

Some idiot antivaxxer chick equated herself to the jews in Nazi Germany and now ALL the antivaxxers are picking up that rhetoric.
Insulting the victims of the holocaust.
Insulting the survivors.
And insulting the pro-vaccine, science and evidence based, responsible and social people.

No we don’t want you to wear a badge. … Although, we can stay away from you if we have infants not yet vaccinated, or people who are immune supressed, if we can identify you asocial parasitic virus dispensers.
Thanks for the idea.
However, we don’t want you segregated to your own camps. … Although, if you all catch measles (or the likes) and die from it in droves, the problem might solve itself, as the survivors, after witnessing a few horrific deaths, will line up for vaccinations around the block.
Again, thanks for the input.

All joking aside.
Are you people brave (or sane) enough to stop for just a moment and examine you own rhetoric?

It comes accross as desperate.
As if you ran out of arguments – which you did. And as disrespectful, as if younhad no idea what you’re talking about – which seems to be the case.

Look, I don’t mean to be beating a dead horse, but flogging that carcass is damn fun. Do you realise that we – mankind – have successfully eliminated a disease with vaccines?
It’s true, look it up.
Small Pox. From 1966 to 1980 a combination of surveillance, preventive measures and VACCINES eliminated the wild virus of small pox. (It can still be found in weaponised form in various labs around the globe, I’m sure.)

We could’ve done that with measles too.

Measles are NOT benefitial for development, or the benign inconvenience you make it out to be. They are a menace to health and life. People got blind, deaf, had braindamage, developed lung problems, or died years later thanks to SSPE – which comes from the measles virus.
Sure, a lot pf people get out of just fine (nowadays), otherwise the measles would’ve wiped us out by now, but it IS a dangerous virus. Period. Why else do you think your great grandmother had eight siblings, six of which she forgot the names of? Because havong a crapton of babies was a necessity, because most of them died!

All your claims of vaccines being dangerous are preposterous, maniacal, borderline insane, completely uninformed, inaccurate, and quite frankly, dangerous.
We as a society, would’ve never allowed or accepted a cure/prevention for a malicious, often deadly disease, that is MORE dangerous, than the disease it is designed to proteft against.
We would’ve returned to the laboratory, and started over.
Period.

No one wants to tag you, put you in a Ghetto. We just want you to understand how wrong you are. Feeling and intuition is worth nothing, when you have scientific data.
Vaccines work.

Next time you fish slap dance participants go and “do research”, google this “Vaccines success”, or “Vaccines benefits” instead of dangers, and toxins – the latter are not there btw.

Take care, and don’t start another idiotic attack wave!

Creeks and Trees

The lcoation is called “Schwarzenberg Allee” here in my hometown. There is this little creek running down at the side of the way. It’s not as “feral” as usual, but we were there with the pram, and that requires a more even surface to drive on.

Please forgive the quality of the pictures, had to use my wife’s cam (cellphone) as mine (cellphone) was experiencing trouble with the SD Card…(perhaps I should switch to a smaller one, 16GB is a lot to take on…)

The creek

A pond fuelled by the recent rains, trees usually don’t grow out of ponds.

A lonely statue in the middle of nowhere…

Lakes & Sunshine

Again out in nature, I begin to discover that I am behaving totally NON (clichΓ©) nerd-like recently. Always out and about in nature and all…anyways, here’s to you “Wienerberg” 4th August 2013!

Let me just say outright, even though bathing/swimming is forbidden in the largest of the lake there were hundreds of people in the water. Why is swimming forbidden? Officially: because they are fishing grounds. Inofficially: It’s a deathtrap! The whole place was once a site where silt was being “mined” for use as bricks. Later it became a dumping ground. There are vertical shafts 1 by 1 meter which can collapse at ANY time. Suction would drown ANYBODY. There are fences, railroad tracks and lorries down there – enough crap to get stuck in and die.
I’m no friend of natural waters anyways but this is the last place I’ll be going in…

Waters and Butterflies II

I have returned to the running waters of the creek, mostly in order to cool down our dog, and in order to catch some cooler breaths of air as Sahara Heat was being shoved over europe.
Enjoy!

Waters and Butterflies

Went outside again, this time with my father in law, my wife, my son and our dog.

A beautiful path through the floodplains of a little creek and a trail that runs next to it.


In between the twigs and the rocks small butterflies in turquoise fluttered around.


That’s the kind of Backdoor I’d like…make the path and the creek not AS public as this one, and more shade, but all in all…


Is it a second creek, or sewage hat is joining the creek next to that bridge? Looked like fresh water…

As with the last outdoor post – maybe more on a later date. πŸ˜‰

Watchers and Guardians…

Went into the woods today, and I thought I’d let you see what the woods have to offer

Tower

Pond / Quagmire

Hurlocks attacking

Really, first time I went there, I thought that they must be rushing over the ridge any moment! πŸ˜€

But I let my imagination run amok rather easily, after all I am a writer and thus blessed with a very active imagination. These woods however help a lot, back in 2011 I found this:

2011

in the exact same spot today I found this:

2013

The location is watched over, or guarded, by this fella:

Watcher / Guardian

So yeah, once all my projects have come to a satisfying end, I will write about these woods, and how beautiful they are, but for now I’m letting these images speak for themselves.
