Living in the sewers? Great idea!

It seems that Italian police have found more than 100 immigrants, including 24 Afghan children, living in the sewer system beneath railway stations in Rome. Everyone seems appalled by this and journalists who thrive on writing heart-breaking stories are having good times. Me, I’m thinking that these people actually had the right notion. Since I read a great book, which name or author I cannot remember at this moment, that had a story about people living in the sewers in New York, I have been thinking that’s the thing to do. According to that book many people, in real life, actually chose to live like that to get away from a crazy world. People with education, good jobs and prosperous lives goes under ground to live with homeless people and drug addicts and they do this to get off the radar, get away from horrifying taxes and governmental restrictions. Even if many claims this to be urban legends, it is still a comforting thought that there are people who actually run from the cesspool of “the real world” to have a more free and more human existence. I have actually been contemplating this for a while and if it wasn’t for the lack of sun and having a hard time finding a good internet connection there is a good chance I might choice that alternative life.

It is a mad world in the company of wars and Gordon Brown with mad people all over the globe always taking the collective and stupid roads towards hell. The constant increasing totalitarian society creeping closer and closer with restrictions, laws and taxes oozing all over everything in our lives, makes you wonder why even bother trying. Instead you could choice a life outside any zip code, outside the grasp of public officials and as an alternative living within a more human code of conduct. I’m not talking about poverty as a way to get closer to God like that murderess evil Mother Teresa bitch. Nor am I mentioning this as a salute to drugs or filth. I’m simply stating that if one could make a decent living in sewers (which I believe you could) that would be a better existence than being constantly monitored and controlled. Also to get away from the vast majority of idiotic people of this world could never be wrong.

These people who got found in tunnels in Rom will now be taking care of by social workers, get some soup and then be thrown around different systems and/or get sent back to wherever they came from. They might not have choice to live underground but when that depression hits us very soon, they might wanna get back to the comfort of those dark tunnels. If anyone ever want to create a society underground or find another way of living a happier and more free lives, please let me know.

You see, according to Cocteau's plan I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think; I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I'm the kind of guy likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder - "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs with the side order of gravy fries?" I WANT high cholesterol. I wanna eat bacon and butter and BUCKETS of cheese, okay? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section. I want to run through the streets naked with green Jell-o all over my body reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly might feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiener".
