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.

Beating around.

Marketing geniuses.

Alright, here in Europe one is fairly sheltered from hate filled fallout from a sporting event in the US, and the accompanying advertisements.

In this case, a pot party and apparently a hate crime.

It seems that the right in the US are loosing their collective shit because Coca Cola dared to have the song “America the Beautiful” (or what it’s called) sung in many different languages. Showing how unified America is, although coming from many different cultures.

I think it is a sign of utter brilliance.
They knew how the mouthbreathers would react.
They intended for them to react this way.

Now the super-ultra-free-“democracydemoncrazy”-right-wing-nutjobs are doing nothing but talking about the Coca Cola company all day long! Not realising that, that is exactly what coke wants.
PUBLICITY!
Tell you what my mouthbreathing friends, keep yappin’ all day long, you’re just proving one point: You are not free, just slaves to your corprate masters. They use the right tug on the leash and you make noise. Bravo!

Facebook Lookback Films.

Really people? You are doing this?
Okay, if you ahven’t realized what is happening, the Facebook people unzipped their pants and are waving their d*ck around to piss all over the place. Saying “We can reduce your life into a little powerpoint presentation.”
I’d feel degraded making this “film” about me. Which is why I won’t, bad enough I returned to the nuthouse (I want closure to some friends I hold dear). But I refuse to let Zuckerberg – or his merry madmen – condense everything I ever did on their site into a little power-point presentation.
It’s pathetic.

Sochi 2014

Frak off! If I would actually care about these stupid mass sport events (including the superb-owl), I would boycott Sochi 2014. Russia has taken steps backwards.
One pace forward, three back.
Listen, a country as oppressive as russia was once the enemy of the western world, it was called….wait for it…RUSSIA! After the fall of the UdSSR you people thought it was over, didn’t you?
Well my lovelies, you were wrong. The way russia treats political opponents of Putin, the way they treat gays – unacceptable. If you have any dignity – boycott these games!
If you are an athlete competing at the olympics – BACK OUT if you have any selfrespect left.

Starting today (!), boycott this crap!
(BTW: Did you ever notice that all these sporting events line up perfectly to keep masses distracted from REAL news?)
