I haven’t decided on a title yet. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. I haven’t decided on that yet, either.

Had a little snigger yesterday when I read that basically 3D films started with Avatar and stopped there. Subsequent films have been flops. Shit like 3D doesn’t interest me one iota and I had predicted it as a fad. Oh dear.

Maybe that’s just more proof that I’m a boring old fart.

The world is so interested in advances and progress. It’s a very selfish attitude.

It’s like the brand names, Nike, Addidas, Rolex, Wrangler, Gucci, etc; I don’t give a damn. I have never owned any of these, I have no hankering to own any of these things, I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone else wants to own any of these things. It’s all status, who needs it?

Waste of time, money, energy and resources and one day we’ll all regret this selfishness. That day is coming very soon. I wonder at how many 99% Greeks are buying these things? This financial failure thing is going to effect us all one day very, very soon.

Lethargy, no I haven’t felt lethargic, I have been busy. Apathy, no not hit by apathy not feeling at all apthetic. Procrastination, no I haven’t procrastinated. I simply have been busy. I have been watching the series Ancient Aliens. That’s why I have posted the first of the series above. Very interesting. It is something that I have been interested in since I read von Danniken’s Chariots of the Gods when I was about 13/14. Which even at that age made me see the sense in his logic. It was logic that seemed far more logical than anything I had seen in the Bible, even though much of it was from the Bible.

But of course, I was too young to make an informed decision. The law says that; I cannot make an informed decision until I am 16, or in some cases 18.

What a crock of shit.

I cannot drink beer until I am 18, I cannot vote until I am 18, I cannot get married until I am 16. I cannot have sex until I am 16, I cannot smoke until I am 18, I cannot drive a car until I am 18.

In South America, it is even worse. 18 for everything, even criminal responsibility. The Latin American view is that you are still a child until your 18th birthday. Example; 1 17 year old pulls a gun and commits an armed robbery killing someone…. “Oh dear, he’s just a child, he didn’t know what he was doing!” They smack him on the hand give him three years in a children’s home from which he can escape at any time. Adn they often do, and go and do the same thing again.

Crock of shit!

There, got that off my chest.

I had three very geriatric looking tomatoes in my vege bowl. This morning I took the wizened tomatoes, chopped them roughly, added to a pot with a splash of water, spronkled salt and pepper on them and let them stew. Wonderful breast, stewed tomatoes on toast.

The week has been hot again. Not as hot as the previous two weeks, nothing over the 40ºC mark, but thankfully, while it begun as a hot one today, it has clouded over and we expect a thunderstorm this afternoon. So I will look forward to that, refreshing. I love thunder and lightning. But it is a worry, because sometimes my wi-fi connection goes down, then it’s beer o’clock. So every cloud (even thunder clouds) has a silver lining.

Enough waffle for now.

Later.

I’m off to watch the next Ancient Alien video.

Thunder in the distance, even before I managed to post this…
