Bloody boohooing idiots

The message is clear, young girls in Sweden are under so much pressure in school that they burn out before they even loose their virginities. An article from the organisation BRIS (translation: Children’s right in society) argues that the government isn’t doing enough to save poor defenceless children from appending doom. It is a heart-bleeding story of an overlooking government and suffering children dying because of neglect. A study from the world health organisation that is quoted claims that 67 percent of Sweden’s fifteen year old girls are highly stressed by school-work and anxiety is growing. Self inflicting wounds and even suicides are apparently high up on the list of things these girls are thinking of. Billions in extra founds and some additional health-person, with one semester at a university studying gender rolls, sitting at school nodding at complaints from youths and giving them complementary birth control pills, seems to be BRIS way to solve this problem.

IF what BRIS says is true; how about this notion: Let them suffer! We are so pampered and so fixated with helping everyone with the slightest tiny problem that we are creating even more problems. If everything these girls hear is how neglected they are, how bad position they are in and how big problems they all have, what do you think is going to happen?

Life is a blood-spattered struggle and in life we all face adversities, hardship and neglect. We all end up in accidents, we get mugged, we get raped, we get sick, we loose jobs. This goes for everyone, old as young, rich as poor, men as well as women. Relatives might die in cancer, your loved one might leave you, and your children might get run over by a 47tons truck. Wars, pestilence, financial crises, miscarriage, ending up in a wheelchair, drugs, personal bankruptcy, heart attacks and millions of other things happens all around us. If these young women don’t manage to handle school, how the hell are they going to do with children of their own while bills are piling up? Stop cuddling with everyone! Life isn’t a movie were there is a beginning, a middle and a happy ending. We are all going to grow old and die.

It seems we have become so soft and week that as soon as anything is wrong we need support groups and governmental aid. But we are not soft, we are not week. Humans have taken their ill equipped bodies that should have been preyed on by pretty much every other animal on this planet and we went out and we conquered. Despite things like religion, socialism and Boy George we go on fighting and overcoming obstacles that no other species could. We rule this planet and whenever we use our brains there is nothing we cannot handle. And women have been suffering throughout history handling both homes and children while working. Give me one male that could manage childbirth and doing all the things that women do daily without falling apart. History might be ruled by men, but no one can convince me that women are the weaker sex. Stop with the “supporting” and stop regarding girls as helpless idiots that cannot handle anything except listening to Brittney Spears, that’s the very thing that created the problem in the first place. This bloody boohooing needs to stop or we will, for the first time ever, stop trying and just die.

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.

Edgar Friendly(Demolition Man):

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".

Great flick

If you haven’t seen this movie yet, do it. Great stuff with a very young Jennifer Connelly. Another tip with the same lady is ‘A Beautiful mind’; also a classic movie and one of the few were critics actually got it right. This is just a teaser, but some good music.

Waking up

There is nothing like waking up to sirens going off, lots of Scottish construction workers running around your bed while you are being naked having a real bad case of hangoverish. Fun, really. And then go online; watching the news from Sweden, all you see is the face of ugliest political leader in the world complaining about another ugly female. After that you realize you probably screwed up once or twice the night before and that hangover keeps reminding you that there is nothing to drink or eat at home except beer. So what do you do?

You turn on Iron Maiden and get a recuperation beer of course. I’m a great man.
