War with You and Me

lord of war

I don’t follow politics nor do I know all the “facts”, but let me just say that, we are totally fucking ourselves big-time.

What the hell is wrong with us? I’m not sure if I should start my rant with US or Israel/Lebanon. Either way they are all retards. Every single person who supports these unbelievably retarded wars are themselves mentally deranged. I cannot stand this madness. What the hell is wrong with the world?

When our governments go to war, we think it’s because they are protecting our interests. Are you kidding me??? I don’t know about you, but ever since 9/11 my eyes have been opened to a much different world. A world where governments are businesses, and war is profit. Do you really think that invading Iraq was to “protect” US? If you do, then stop reading here.

Every single person in Israel/Lebanon who has been involved in the never ending conquest to claim the “holly land” needs to seriously be shot. Our existence on this planet will not last if we cannot let go of the past. It makes me so mad that people would kill each other and go to war over something so irrelevant. In today’s age of possibilities and knowledge you’d think people are smarter, more aware, more civilized. And yet it’s as though the mistakes of our forefathers have taught us nothing.

It makes me sick to look on my MSN list of friends and see people who have things like “Fuck you Israel/Lebanon” in their name. Like seriously, you’ve got to be at most 12 to be acting like that. We are always being taught tolerance and acceptance and yet people are blindly cursing.

I strongly disagree with any armed conflict, not because I’m a hippy, but because I believe in peace.

It’s kind of odd, but I think I know what the problem is with the world. We don’t accept each other. I was not born in Canada, I moved to Canada with my parents from Europe. I was a kid, and it’s been some 10.5 years now. Since Canada is such a diverse nation, I have grown up being friends with jews, arabs, asians, blacks. I have friends of every color and of every race, and I know that what it all boils down to, is our inability to accept other people.

My parents for instance, grew up back there and back then, they have a harder time suppressing their, sometimes, more “racist” remarks. When I hear them, I cannot help but wonder how come they don’t see the world through my eyes.

Does it really matter what religion you are, what kind of food you eat or the clothe that you wear? Like why can’t we just get a long? I’m not saying you have to love everybody, just learn to live with them. Compromise is key. If we don’t learn to accept the differences in eachother on a GLOBAL scale, Einstein’s prediction about WWIV (sticks and stones) won’t be far off.

Sixth Sense

There was an article I read yesterday about going with your gut. I couldn’t pass the oportunity to link to it and talk about it!

I hope I’m not the only one, but I’ve learned to trust my gut. In fact I’ve conditioned myself to take my gut reaction over everything else. Fortunately I can report that I don’t think my gut has yet to fail me in the long run.

That’s one of my “tricks” to writing multiple choice exams. If I don’t know the answer I stick with whatever was my first reaction. Yes, at first it may be hard to “hear” what your gut says, but you have to learn! I never change my answers after either, (unless it’s obvious that 1+1 does not equal 3).

Yet many of us ignore this tool — or worse, respond to urges that are misguided or the product of a fevered imagination. Fine-tuning your intuition will help you make better decisions whether you’re buying a car, making new acquaintances, or solving problems at work. It could even save your life.

Boobs

I found this hilarious short movie about office small talk. Now I’m posting it basically because it involves two women feeling each other’s breasts. Throw in a little Biggest Nipples for traffic luring, and voila, enjoy this video!

It’s technically safe for work but I’ve warned you about the whole boob thing, so don’t blame me!

+Two weeks left

Boy, yesterday was a busy day. Work, school to proctor a midterm, mark assignments, grab the midterms and jet home. Get home, make some final changes to Mindless v2, lock up Mindless v1 and sleep. Argh so much to do…

I’m still waiting for BlogExplosion to approve my new blog. Like seriously what’s taking so long! It’s been just over 24 hours already, I’m far too anxious to just sit still; I need people to see my site! Maybe even participate in a battle?

Note to all those thinking of switching away from wordpress.com, beware that you lose you’re spellchecker! I’m going to have to run this through Word once I’m done just to be sure.

Yeah anyway enough about tech stuff, I saw a friend of mine, who I haven’t seen in 5+ years. I was standing at Bayview. It was just after 9pm, street lamps on, the day now visibly shorter than it was even a few weeks ago. When a bus pulls up, and he’s on it. The bus stops perfectly in front my field of vision. And I was like “oh man, it’s Josh”. I haven’t seen that guy in years, we obviously couldn’t say much, so we kind of just pointed at each other…lol.

Welcome

Hey guys, if you’re here because you visited my old site on wordpress.com, welcome back and thanks for following.

If you’re new then just as well, welcome!

Now that I have so much more control over my blog I think I’ll try something creative. Not exactly sure what yet, but it’ll come to me.

Please excuse the ads that I’ve added, I’m still testing out their optimum placement. Feel free to click on them if you want, :P, several times a day for goodluck!

Moving WordPress

And here I thought that just because wordpress.com has an “export” button, that the whole importing thing would work out to be easier…

Nope not a chance. Some of you may have noticed my brief post about me moving to a new host…away from wordpress.com.

Here are some thoughts:

  • Less fun then it may appear
  • WordPress.com has some nice features implemented.
  • Now that I’ve made my site popular…I’m going to lose all my visitors?
  • Argh, why won’t you just import!
  • I payed how much for this headache?
  • I don’t even like blogging THAT much.
  • Mommy

No but seriously, think twice before actually moving. I was never actually going to move, until a “brilliant” plan snuck up on me. Of course it’s a secret plan so … I can’t share it with you, but rest assured, that if it makes me rich, I’ll fill you in!

Just kidding…

If anybody has any suggestion as to how to import a wordpress.com export into a fresh wordpress install, please fill me in. This RSS 2.0 crap is driving me bananas. I have a feeling I’m going to have to fill the database … by hand … hopefully with someone else’s hands! 😛
