Streets of Vienna

There is a street in my town, called Triester Strasse – Street to Triest (guss where it leads to in the end, realy difficult innit?), which is notorious for its traffic. 

There is always traffic. No time of day without traffic, never could you (if you had a balcony or window to that street) sit there and enjoy the silence, if one day you wake and the street is silent, and stays that way, congratulations, you survived the apocalypse. 

Triester Straße is also notorious for the nightlife there. Brothels, ‘Massage parlours’, Strip clubs – like pearls on a string. 

My wife and I were driving down that road, out of town, doing some errands when we noticed the following on the side of the road:
Brothel, Stripclub, ‘Massage parlour’, intersection, Kindergarden, Brothel.

Read that again.
Slowly.
Perhaps speak the words aloud.

Brothel
Stripclub
‘Massage parlour’
Intersection
Kindergarden (Daycare)
Brothel

There are several things here that disturb me.
1 – next to a street that coughs up enough exhaust and soot to fill cathedrals in minutes, you do not open a daycare.
2 – the prudish ways of the Americans where a titty is worse than guns is not my thing, but brothels next door to daycare centers are a bit too much too early.
3 – at least the ‘masage parlour’ and the brothel immediately next door to the Kindergarten were displaying bright ‘Open’ signs. At half past two PM.

A few questions arise too:
a) – What kind of men go to a brothel at that hour?
b) – Do you want those men near your kids?
c) – Are those the children of the prostitutes, strippers, and ‘massage experts’?
d) – Do these kids have a pole?
e) – Can customers of the surrounding establishments put their kids into the daycare by the hour?
f) – Whose fucking idea was this?
g) – Seriously? SERIOUSLY???

Well, that was enough roadside entertainment for me. Carrying a pax closet upstairs six flights. That shall preoccupy my mind now….

Mass extinctions

You may or may not have heard about mass extinctions.

If you are from a bible humping (yes humping) part of the world, mass extinctions are a new and satanic concept to you, as everything is no older than 6000 years. If you are from that crowd still believing this – go away.

There have been a few mass extinctions in earth’s history. Caused by a multitude of things:
◆Meteorite impact, the most popular one, dinosaur killer. 😉
◆Super volcano, the misnomer, it was less a volcanic eruption, like the super pimple on earth’s face like Yellowstone, but the earth tearing open, spewing forth gas, lava, gas, soot, gas, ash and gas into the atmosphere and killing much of life through a mixture of suffocation and climate change (aka Volcanic winter).
◆Gamma Ray Burst, it is deadly lightning from space. When “nearby” a star goes nova, or shit dives into a black hole, from the poles of the nova or the blackhole, a massive blast of concentrated gamma radiation is shot out. If the earth is in the path of this highly concentrated ray – the side of the earth turned into the ray, is immediately sterilised – Pop out of a shelter or a time machine a second later, and do open heart surgery in the dirt. That sterilised!
The Ozone layer is wrecked, allowing for the sun to do in the other side of the planet.

And lastly, my favorite. The first mass extinction event ON earth, was caused by creatures FROM earth.

Tiny single cell organisms, who breathed earth’s ancient atmosphere, which lacked oxygen, exhaled just that – oxygen. They exhaled so much of that which we need to survive, that they bereft themselves of something to breathe, and they changed the climate – it got cooler due to the oxygen, and they died in massive numbers.

Now, did we ever stop to consider, that, we might be the next incarnation of this?
We can’t kill ALL life on the earth, but like those buggers back then, we would change conditions to a state where we can’t live any longer, taking most of life currently present with us into oblivion.
This planet is a self correcting system, we may or may not be a failure. Our purpose from the start may have been to act as a reset button. Clean the slate, and life starts over.
Again.

Now, we could try and avoid this, in which case we can spread out (to space!), evolve, and be one with nature. But if we don’t, nature doesn’t care.
Self correcting system. An answer to our age old question: “Why are we here?” -“Mass extinction, anal orifice!”

Take that environmentalists! You are preventing nature from self correcting! Mindless, meddling fools!

Life ain’t that hard presents Beating the Hippies

No, today there will be no lesson in how to live life a bit more easy than what you’re used to.

Today LATH proudly presents BTH

Why?
It needs to be done, that’s why. I am sick and tired of the hippie shit I have to put with, so I am taking that peace sign from you and I will peacefully, and lovingly, bludgeon you to death with it.

There will be a whole range of topics and the BTH posts will be as rando, as the LATH posts, I have laid some topics out before me, but one thing needs to come first, and what’s the first thing that comes to mind when freely associating Hippie?

Weed.

I have had it with you folks telling the world that weed solves every ailment, ever.
Weed and coconut oil.

Listen you wind-tunnels, the moment you set something ablaze – be that tobacco, weed, crack, neighbors – so you can smoke it, guess what. You are inhaling smoke, which is not much more than gas, ash and soot. Which all is carcinogenic.
Your stupid claim that weed smoking (if only pure weed blunts are used) is null and void if you apply logic.

Don’t get me wrong people, I enjoyed that stuff when I was younger. I’d enjoy it today if I could get my hands on some, but the arguments are utter crap.

Legalise it? Yes. Give it to Hippies? No.

Punch it,
A.
