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,

Aliens dying…

I want a really good Alien invasion movie. One in which we (the humans) have to overcome our differences and figure out a way to repell the aliens, to fight them or something.

Not like we have had in recent years:

Independence Day – Binary, terrestial computer with limited wireless technology can all of a sudden transmit a deadly virus to an unknown, super sophisticated alien computer…NO!
No this shit doesn’t happen, if you want virtual warfare, just ask your secret agencies, it requires dozens of hackers and hours of work, and thousands of computers.
Not one laptop and one schmuck!
Frack this shit.

War of the Worlds – Both the original and the remake with Mighty Mouse, the Aliens come here, after depositing their pods in the ground thousands of years ago (magically knowing where we’d settle our biggest cities; Fuck continental drift, and other desaster striking and burying the pods under hundreds of meters of ocean or rubble…), they return, “beam” down and start attacking.  Without analysing the atmosphere for any pathagens first, so they die horribly at the hands of some bacteria…WHAT??? Shit like this happens to a small strike force, to a group of five specialists that scout the land. A landing party if you will. But not an invasion army!!
Not even if we humans were the aliens invading another world. NO! This is stupid.

Signs – Although the planet consists only of 0.02% of water, the surface of it is coverd to 67% by this shit that KILLS THEM INSTANTLY! They are killed by fucking water! If I came to a planet and two thirds are covered with sulfiric acid, I turn and leave. No fucking around with the natives, no invasions, no nothing. Just going “Whoopsie!” turning around and leaving.

So please Hollywood, please dear fellow writers – give me something  original to enjoy. But not stupid shit like this.

Please, spare me with V. I know the plot, I saw the original series. Ugh…

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! 😀

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.
