(Evil) Fun at Work

Today I learned that some of my colleagues believe in alternative medicine.

I berated them that it is bovine fecal matter, and that it is the same as alternative facts “the sky is green”, stupid. That any success doesn’t go beyond placebo (by proxy).
If stuff works, it is called MEDICINE, without the prefix, even if it “just” herbs.

To which they replied “everyone is entitled to their beliefs.”

No, sorry, they’re not. Belief in chinese alternative medicine states that ground up rhino horns are medicine (although it is the same as fingernails), and now the northern white rhino is as good as extinct thanks to that.

Now they’re not talking to me anymore.

I have the perfect picture for this.

I won’t shut up. Fuck alternative medicine, homeopathy, MMS (bleach) and juicing.

See a REAL doctor, who gives you REAL medicine, you pseudo enlightened fuck-wit.

Roadrage 09. Sept.

They made this.
This exists. Outside. On the road, not a training course for kids.

On a bicycle lane, exclusively for cyclists.

Let me rephrase that: They made real markings for cyclists!
The one group of traffic participants who frequently ignore traffic lights, traffic signs, and, most importantly, any and all markings! Who think traffic laws are loose guidelines or recommendations and safety gear is for loosers who actually value life and health.

They have shat out taxpayer money, to paint teeny-tiny cyclist markings on a bicycle lane, to make the one group of traffic participants that could only be more dangerous if they rode bikes made out of solid plutonium, feel safer.

Why?
Why on earth would you do useless crap like that?
What will be next? Signs for blind people not written in Braille? “If you’re blind, please look out for traffic!”

I would not put it beyond these stupid people. 

After all, those must be the same Schmucks who came up with the flashing red lights and high pitched beeps when the subway doors close, to deter people from jumping in at the last second, after thirty or fourty years of not having this. Did it actually stop anyone from jumping in at the last second?
NO!

Will the bicycle lane markings achieve anything except wasting taxpayer money?
NO!

I wish I could grab power in this stupid country, and mop the floor with all those mouthbreathers from the political extremes left and right. There would be no refugee crisis, just a welcome. There would be no road markings for cyclists, just hefty fines for driving on the road without a licensed vehicle, without safety gear, and no license…

Take care, and dodge the two wheeled menaces,

Let’s go to Mars…

Doctors think that a round trip to mars and back is too risky to ever send a human being.

Background radiation, coronal emissions, thus cancer, bone atrophy, etc.

Not to mention all the hazards of being that far away from earth.

If today’s health & safety fetish would’ve been present back in 1491  – the american continent would’ve remained undiscovered until we sent technologies there. Unmanned transoceanic probes.

Or back in the 1960s, no small step for a man, not even the thought of a leap for mankind. “Too dangerous!”

The future of mankind lies out there.
Not only because we fuck this planet over in the worst possible way, but because it is a simple fact! Suppose we get our shit together, no wars, poverty eliminated, hunger and thirat sated…eventually we need to spread to new areas. And those lie out there.
Period.

And it will be the brave and the bold who will go, take small steps to make giant leaps.

So, yes. Doctors say that going to mars will be too risky, and I say one day some dude (or gal) will go, live there for a time, return and have healthy babies afterwards.
Just to prove that doctors should shut their mouths sometimes.

In that respect, live long and prosper,
to boldly go, where no man has gone before.

Take care,
A.

To my jogging neighbors…

You want to lead a healthier lifestyle than the average Joe and keep fit?
Good! Here are some easy to follow suggestions to do just that:

– Shut your fucking piehole! Don’t tell people uninvited about your workout regime or diet. No one cares!

– Get off that bicycle! I know riding the bike is the new shit but honestly it isn’t. Bicyclists are a menace and they should be dealt with as a menace, Run over pedestrians, dogs, kids, they cause  accidents and clutter up the streets. So, don’t.

– You want to live healthier? Then stop jogging on tarmac sidewalks, in innercity districts! If you continue this for 12 to 20 years, your joints will be crap! And if I were to smoke a pack of cigarettes a day and you jog for an hour a day I’m healthier after 20 years!! So, stop jogging!

– Keep your Soy crap! No one gives a shit about tofu and soy juice! So if you going veg eat or even vegan that’s nice but keep it to yourself. And don’t even get me started on stevia! If you want something to be sweet, use sugar, if you don’t like sugar, don’t sweeten it! It’s like caffeine free coffee and alcohol free beer: Joyless fun!

I’m certain, if you follow the suggestions, your health will either improve or at least be safe from harm by your fellow human beings
