Again some people blew themselves up in an urban area killing innocent people.
Again it was done by people who did it because they have an infirority complex about their god.
Again.
Just like a few days ago (or was it a week already?) in Turkey.

Again.

Now I’m not particularly sad about people losing their lives, although it is a tragedy and the victims, survivors and relatives have my sympathy.
I’m not in fear or terror that some insecure lunatic with a bomb might blow himself up in my face.
I’m not even all that enraged that all this is still a thing in this day and age – what ever stupid and arbitrary scale of measuring time (a.k.a. caldender) you adhere to – although admittedly I do feel a sizeable amount of anger.

Mostly, I’m just disappointed.

We have discovered/proven fucking gravitational waves just now!
We have unlocked the once indivisble thing (the atom) and discovered that the stuff that makes it up (protons, neutrons and electrons), is made up of even smaller things (quarks, etc.).
We KNOW that evolution is a thing – we can see it on a day to day basis with germs and even pests that develop immunity to our pesticides and antibiotics.
We KNOW that the earth is a sphere (I know it’s a bit bumpy, but a newly minted billard ball has deeper cravices than anything the earth has to offer, so STFU), orbiting the sun, which is in turn oribiting the center of the galaxy, which in turn is but one of hundreds of thousands in the observable universe.
We know the big bang is a thing, and we know almost everything that happened in those first moments after it occured.
We have deciphered our genome, and we KNOW that we share 98.9% of our genes with our closest relative in the animal kingdom – the chimpanzee!
We have technologies that allow us to communicate with people on the other side of the planet as if they were in the room with us. We have devices that fit in our hands that can store more information and perform more calculations than what was necessary to land people on the fucking moon and bring them back a few days later.

And STILL!
STILL people kill each other based on some trivial shit such as skin color or the even more retarded thing to get upset about – INVISIBLE FRIENDS!

If god exists – and you morons keep insisting on that – he or she or it is not proud of any of you (or me). He/she/it is disappointed.
Once you die, none of you fuckers is going to heaven. You’ll go to the pearly gates, where you will be greeted by god, slowly shaking his/her/its head showing the utter disappointment in your conduct in life. (Whether you’re a radical religious nut, xenophobe or nationalist doesn’t matter.)
And off you go. He whisks you off to someplace else. Wherever that may be.

So no.
I am not mad.
I am not sad.
I am disappointed.

Here’s to hope that all these differenfes will be forgotten or overcome soon, and that our shithead politicians, religious leaders and economic leaders will either be burned publicly to make an example, so that we will stop bloodshed over NOTHING, and stop burning coal and oil while we can make electricity out of daylight and wind.
Maybe we can create a clean and sustainable future for ourselves, launch ourselves into space and spread out.
So we will survive the inevitable desaster that WILL one day smash into our planet potentially killing close to everything on the planet.

But that is the delusional hopes of a hopeless romantic and optimist, my realistic side tells me that the random GRB or stray asteroid wipingnus out would be a relief…

Take care,

Random rant

•”She threads two rats asses on some string to hang in the livingroom, when you see why, it’s pure genius!”

No.
Not it’s not.
It’s mundane silly clickbait shit. Cut it out! No one cares why dad is erecting a 30 ton concrete monument around this sickly (possibly already dead) tree. Or why we all should pour thirty liters of diarrhoetic shit into the oven to bake for ten days at fifty thousand Kelvin.
It is probably some mundane shit that no one in their right mind would consider “genius”, or “brilliant”.

YOU won’t believe how easy it is to generate honest clicks without angering people: create content, assholes.

•We just had an election last week.
Murica is having one next year. Already I am fed up to the brim with politics.
How so? Let me answer this with a parable:
In order to evaluate whether a new bridge is nevessary or not, all the leaders of all the parties (leading and opposition) journey to the riverside. There’s no way across as the old bridge is crumbling away, they see some folks on the other side of the river and yell: “How do we get to the other side of the river?” (To get a look at stuff from over there)
To which the people mockingly reply: “You already ARE on the other side!”
Conclusion, opposition and leading party(ies) agree that no new bridge is needed, because they were able to get to the other aide easily.

Sad thing, this is probably happening right now somewhere, or has happened very recently….

•I hate the piss weather. But it could be far worse:

I smelled the blue ocean, and I gotta tel you folks, if I had to live near a large body of water that stank like toilet cleaner, I’d have to murder at least seven people and thirteen goats daily, just to make it through life.
Gladly, real life doesn’t smell like this chemical approximation of “annoyed – the smell”.

As always, take care,

I’d suck as an interviewer…

I saw an interview with a local politician these days.

The interviewer then asked “…if your project get’s rejected, what do you think was the cause? Who did you fail at?” the politician looked around like some kid making up an obvious lie story and then started babbling “Well…hm…I guess….well, I’d be very sidappointed if blablabla” and I would’Ve snapped as the interviewer at the point of “I’d be very disappointed” and jumped at my counterpart a finger in their face screaming “THAT WAS NOT THE QUESTION! WHO DI YOU FAIL AT? ANSWER!” then the policitican would start again with her disappointment, at which point it slap her with my papers “ANSWER THE GOD DAMN QUESTION!” at this point molten steel red in the face “FRAK YOUR FEELINGS, WHO. DID. YOU. FAIL. AT?”

Probably my producers and people behind the camera would drag me off screen and you’d see “Technical difficulties” sign shown, afterwards a deeply terryfied politician and a new interviewer would sit there and she could ramble on about her disappointment somewhere in the off you’d hear me screaming and yelling “THAT WASN’T THE QUESTION!”

All in all, no matter if they are left wing (like the woman I saw in the interview) or right wing (like the true master of avoiding straight answers in interviews here) – ALL politicians lie. They all don’t want to give straight answers.
If you confront them with hard facts, or things they haven’t got a written response for – they budge. None of them can react to stuff in an honest way, they stick to their agenda and even if you can see them crack internally, they continue their lies. Policitcs ever being truthful and honest would destroy the entire system. If you expect change in opinion when they meet in an assembly, or some interview, or a meeting with SPECIALISTS – you’re gonna have a bad time. (Insert Southpark Meme here :Þ)

Again, I’d be a horror as interviewer. Yelling, screaming and insulting these morons and their evasive behavior and their lies. Perhaps I’d be great. But I think I’d suck…

Faces of feces (Politics pt.2 & Advertising pt.2)

In the last years I have noticed a trend that had been going on for a long time.

People over Program

Are we as a society really that shallow? How could we allow to sink this low?
No matter what you are advertising for, even of it is for toilet-bowl-scrubber-bots, we sho PEOPLE instead of the PRODUCT. Happily smiling families, scantly dressed women, yes. A flash of the product, back to the people.
Maybe it’s a (scantly dressed) celebrity instead of a family/scantly dressed woman – still one we want to see.

It has become the same issue with politics, we have celebrities or people, advertising for parties. We have interrest in the candidates, instead of the party program.
Hitler was non smoker, barely meat eating, barely drinking alcohol war hero – think before you cast your vote.
Who cares if the candidate is living a healthy life? Is god fearing or an atheist?
Or whether they are attractive?? What are their stands on the issues? What their plans for the economy? The foreign policies?
Look at the political advertising posters from the 1950s and compare them with todays.

Issues vs. Faces.
While in the 50s they would have promised toilet-bowl-scrubber-bots, they would show it to us today.

While I know that the stands on the issues are as trustworthy as the fake smile, and photoshopped politicians heads – but I’d rather cast my vote based on what they told me, than on how nice they look and how often they pray to a space zombie.

Sadly we have an election coming up in the fall of this year, which means from around mid summer on I will be bombarded with non-slogans and smiles more fake than Lolo Ferrari’s tits.

Stay away from Austria at that time, they’re going wild then…
