    Let's talk about our everyday life here? what bothers/fascinates you etc

    here is my 'today' day
    =============================================================

    Signs...

    I went to IKEA today, needed some fresh bed sheets. In the furniture section I was like "hey look that's my table, the one with the price tag of 89 euro. I got it for 29 last year !!"
    me --> :o o_O <-- my friend
    A lot of people, who happened to see that table at my place, liked it, because it is a chinese style low simple black cheap table ,well no longer cheap due to its popularity obviously, IKEA a-holes decided why not raise the price, but common! make it 39 or even 49, but 89??? jesus

    anyway..at a cashier counter, while standing in line I bumped into a sign (a sheet of paper really) and found it interesting. My friend found it rather disturbing, she also almost killed me when I put out my cellphone to take a picture of it, which made the entire queue laugh and I realized everyone felt pretty much the same about that sign as I did.

    here it is

    [​IMG]

    It says "We thank You for letting Individuals with Special Needs pass first, as well as Pregnant Women".

    But to me it looks like some female with a perky butt is going to "give it" to a disabled guy right at the counter or a wheelchair dude is going to give some preggy a "ride". I couldn't stop lmao and my friend got annoyed. She said I was being rude, because even-though that sign looks awkward, the fact that they have it there shows that they try to be polite. And this is when I got annoyed... and was like "NO they don't! They just want to sell you a table for 89 euro instead of 29, so they pretend to be polite. And when people pretend to be something it always looks idiotic, just like this sign. You obviously DON"T have to tell people that disabled individuals and preggies have priority, because 1. If disabled/preggies decided to go to IKEA, they realized they might have to stand in line
    2. If they are not feeling well while in line, they can always ask people for help or to let them pass first, as well as everyone, who is not feeling well (even if they are not disabled or pregnant) should ask for help and we should be willing to do favors/ help EVERYONE (not only disabled or pregnant)
    3. If someone haven't noticed that there is a disabled or pregnant person behind them in line -others or that person can always let it know
    4. If someone doesn't give a shit about others, why would they give a shit about disabled or pregnant people, and about this sign as well?

    so what's the point? to make me turn my head around, looking for a disabled/pregnant person? oh common! Why would you, people, if you care for others, let a preggie/disabled pass first in line, but not just anyone? What if a disabled/preggie is some wealthy person, has 5 servants and just decided to go for a walk to get some crap in IKEA, cuz they are bored ( I know a couple of such ppl), meanwhile there is someone in line who has a dying father or a hungry kid waiting for them at home, but they had to pass by IKEA after work on their way home, because they urgently need something. Shouldn't they pass first? So if such a sign is necessary, may be it should say something like "We Thank you for letting pass first anyone who asks you for it." and no images"

    we couldn't stop arguing over that damn sign on the way back home and because of that I haven't notice another sign , which was actually important

    [​IMG]

    and hit a car. It wasn't too bad, but scared the shit out of me. Anyway, the dude from the car I hit was nice, I gave him a bj and so we don't have to pay anything.

    It's been a long day, I am glad to be home :ecouteurs:

    ps after I posted this entry on an other forum someone asked me if I really gave a bj to that guy. I will answer this question if you tell me why you want to know. But find a good reason or you'll die not knowing <-- my answer to that person was :p

    Anarchy In Greece

    Six Athens policemen injured by gunmen.

    Unidentified gunmen shot and injured six policemen in a northern Athens suburb late on Tuesday, police said. By News Wires

    Six Greek police officers were shot and wounded Tuesday, two of them seriously, in an attack against a police post in a northern suburb of the capital Athens, police said.

    Three unidentified attackers opened fire on the Aghia Paraskevi post with an automatic weapon and escaped on two high-powered motorcycles.

    The wounded officers, one of whom was a woman, were admitted to Athens hospitals.

    One suffered bullet wounds to the chest, another to the stomach and four others to the shoulder and legs.

    President Carolos Papoulias condemned what he called "the cowardly terrorist attack" and expressed his sympathy for the victims.

    Minister for the Protection of Citizens Michalis Chryssohoidis, who along with Health Minister Mariliza Xenoyannokopoulou visited the wounded officers, called the attack "one hundred percent terrorist."

    Promising that society "will not let itself be terrorised," he appealed to the people to help the police arrest those responsible.

    Around 50 bullet casings were recovered from the scene of the attack, and police said they suspected either a Kalashnikov-style assault rifle or a Skorpio submachine gun had been used.

    There was no claim of responsibility, although similar attacks have been carried out in the past by two extremist groups.

    They are the extreme-left group Revolutionary Struggle, which has been active since 2003 and is listed by the European Union and United States as a terrorist organisation, and the Revolutionary Sect, which appeared early this year.

    Leftist extremists have launched a number of attacks on police targets since riots last December triggered by the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old youth.

    these are actually my favourite kinds of posts. more important to what my ideas of community are than general politics, as after you been around for a while nothing really surprises or interests you about those kinda subjects. i am however moving this thread to the "entertainment and off-topic" section.

    what about the bj? i figure outlaw squaw is just talking about her day, and it was part of it. not everyone is scared of discussing sexuality.

    here was my yesterday...

    woke up feeling shithouse. had previously divulged too much information about myself to my best friend, who while awesome, is just not someone i want to know everything about me. she didn't care, but i do. so then i got frustrated with myself for being uptight... not my usual modus operandi.
    realised i need to get my shit together. had driven myself broke putting on a gig. had been sleeping with too many people. to distract myself from getting my shit together i randomly messaged friends in another city saying i'm coming up for a visit. that night i went to work. it was an okay gig, as in the bands weren't too bad. bit to "proggy" for my tastes, but at least it wasn't emo or some shit. the mix was terrible. then they had technical difficulties, and ending up fighting with each other. they hung around yelling at each other instead of packing their gear up. finally they went home, i knocked off, drank 2 gin and tonics, and went to bed.
    today i woke up, thought about whether i was really gonna go interstate, and then logged on. here i am, one breakfast coffee and cigarette later...

    a friend of mine recently complained about the same situation. He got drunk and shared some personal info with some friend of his, now he regrets. It happens to me occasionally too. I'd say we should be more careful, but then again when you are drunk, hanging out somewhere around your friends don't you want just to get loose and be yourself ? May be if you look at that situation from the perspective of making one step towards being yourself, it will stop bothering you?

    Concerning the rest of your day, seems messy and cool, just like my everydays :beers: except I don't have a band

    ps thank you for moving the thread to the right place

    Well I can certainly relate to telling stuff to people that in hindsight I didn't want to know.
    But further off in hindsight I can say there is very little I regret doing and everything I HAVE done has made me what I am, that certainly takes a load off things :)

    no, you haven't. I meant, I gave that guy a bj for having smashed into his car so that I wouldn't have had to pay. But it was a joke. Why odd? :D

    I am responsible for my husband's death, sort of. I didn't kill him with my own hands. but may be I know the feeling you are talking about

    hey, don't get all fired up about this thread, leave it where it is for the time being, you'll figure it out, or someone else will. anyways, it's not a big deal that it is here and not 'there', I think

    sorry, I misunderstood your post about bands and drunks, I've read it right after I woke up, so i was still sleepy and had to run too... my bad

    Stones For Sale
    ------------------

    it's going to be a short one, as I am tired and stressed a bit, but oh well, I have you to talk with about bullshit, so I feel better.

    I went to some sort of a big supermarket where they sell all the possible house/home stuff (it is too much of markets for me lately, I am stressed)

    so, while a friend of mine was looking for the next crappy thing to buy, I walked around, staring at their products.
    One was quite good. It was a wooden house, with two rooms, not too big but ok for 2 people. Its price, 6+ thousands euro, compared to most prices (especially for houses) seemed very decent. Of course its a very basic house, but I started thinking that with a proper heating it could be nice even in winter (I live in Greece), then I could also set up solar power (those batteries were on top of the house, I didn't come up with that one on my own :p) and so I'd have my own house, leaving independently from state for just 10+ thousands euro. Which I still don't have, but now it looks affordable, meanwhile before it was a dream I was sure would never come true. The only problem is...where to settle down? Everything is damn private property. You just can't go wherever you want and crash there with your little house, damn it. You are obliged to stay where you are, to work for money and everything around you is arranged so that you'll never have enough of it (money). And if one day you get tired and say Fuck It, I don't want your fancy life, you realize...you cannot escape :o you are not allowed...shit. So, I said, I will start looking for a place that would be comfortable for my lil dream-house and won't be private property (most likely a small island, but those are too far from civilization with all the consequences of living in the wild). While thinking about all that I bumped into this
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] right, stones for sale. I have been staring at them for a while :| and then

    because I was already tired and previously annoyed by an insurance company guy, I felt like smashing my head into those stones to damage it enough so that my brain will stop making me feel weird. My brain makes me tired, everyday it is like 'Look! Weird Stuff!" and I am like "Why? What's weird about it?" and my brain is like "Well, think about it, use me, that's what I am sitting here for, stupid idiot" :ecouteurs:

    So, I started thinking (always hard for me damn thinking process). Stones for sale...these stones don't look artificial, they seem to be natural. So, they gathered them, brought them here, which is good, someone won't have to gather stones if they need them, they can go and buy them, provided they have money. I don't have money, but I don't need stones either...hm what if I need them? well I guess I'll go and gather them myself? dammit, who buys these stones?? If they are here and so many, someone must be buying them. Well, someone buys water as well ( including me, although the nature provides it for free, but our gov-t doesn't bother about cleaning systems, so sink water is no good to drink, in Greece there is so much asbestos in it), they already offer canned oxygen for sale too.... They take good care of us, living in this polluted environment and spending all our time trying to make money or trying to figure out how to make it(me) or preparing ourselves to start making it (our beloved students). Once of a sudden it cracked me up: I imagined our bright future, working to get paid to buy water, air, stones(??) (my friend hates it, when we are walking somewhere and then I just start laughing). And then one day the people will rebel, saying 'why spend time working for money to be able to pay for stones if we can go gather them in a nice healthy environment where air and water are also free? Let's get out of here!" Well, that won't be easy. First of all private property everywhere (Greece isn't big enough to get lost in the middle of nowhere), second: we are products of civilization- we need bathroom, telly, hell INTERNET! I decided, I have to think more about all that. So yes, my friend, when I started laughing and put out my cellphone again to take pix of the stones, she was like "Oh no...now what?", I said "well, dude...it's 'a time to gather stones" She: :| "F U. This time I'll pretend I don't know you"

    ps did I say it was going to be short? :ecouteurs:

    Purpose Of Life (examined?)

    Last night I had an ultimate discussion with a friend of mine (german lesbian linguist highly interested in Neuro-Linguistic Programming) she is scary intelligent, we'll call her Jude, while enjoying a glass of wine (me- red medium sweet, Jude- white dry bitch lol) and some traditional appetizers from Crete in a very romantic home-style Cretan bar. The topic was the classic: existentialism or in simple words purpose of life. With the difference we both agreed that probably there is none and its our reality in which we gave a purpose to every single thing/organism that forces us to figure out a purpose of our own existence. We argued on whether we need it. Jude said we don't, because we are ever-changing creatures and by establishing a purpose we basically oppose any emerging changes. I insisted we do, because even-though we are ever-changing we don't necessarily always change in a sense of improvement, so by establishing a purpose we find motivation to move forward, it's just that some purposes are dumb and should not be allowed, like serving as a priest in a christian church. Jude said, that it'd be too complicated to revise every possible purpose, so it's wiser to refuse from having one at all instead of dealing with the consequences of the stupid ones. Eventually we agreed: let the assholes degrade, may be it will result in their extinction and nice people don't need a purpose, they will either move forward by their own will or be carried by the others for being nice.

    On my way home I was thinking about what makes a nice person nice. I decided to walk along a central road, to get some of its noise and traffic to get rid of those 'universal' thoughts before I sleep and in the middle of the chaos I noticed a woman, she was on her knees, sitting in a corner. As I was approaching her, I noticed she was petting a cat, sitting in that corner, most likely scared to death, as it wasn't a typical place to see a cat. It probably jumped out of some backstreet, freaked out and now sitting in that corner. I have to admit I love cats. I respect all the organisms, I try to avoid any contact with insects, worms, slugs, cephalopods etc (may be I forgot someone ), but I love cats! and those street cats always break my heart, especially when they get hurt (dogs too, but I love cats more for no particular reason). It was such a wonderful image to see, her and that little dirty cat communicating in the middle of that urbanistic mincer, that I hated myself for 1001st time for not having purchased a camera yet (otherwise I could share that image with you, but instead I will share this sucky pic I took using my cellphone)

    [​IMG]

    , yeah I turned around, went back to her and asked her if I could take a pic of her. She said 'yes' just not her face, but oh well, you can't see anything anyways. Then she said "poor thing, it probably got hit by a car" and this is when I noticed that the cat's head was full of blood and its leg looked messy too. So I sat there next to them, not knowing what to do. It was late to try find a doc and we don't have any emergency hospital for animals, not in Thessaloniki anyway. She was like 'I could take it home, but how? It will scratch me, it's scared and obviously hurting". I offered to wrap it in in something, but we only had our jackets and I am not that nice to offer my jacket to a cat, its my last one and winter is coming, hell no. And then εύρηκα! why not use a box? "But where can we get a box now?"-"There"<-- I said, and pointed at the garbage container. It is always full of boxes next to garbage containers. So I went there, but had to empty one first, it was full of ugh...stuff. I had fun though, as people were passing by, they looked at me most likely thinking, that I am looking for a dinner or a place to stay. The rest was trivial. We put a box in front of the cat, slowly pushing it towards it and to our biggest surprise it slowly moved into the box. I got a taxi for her and she was gone. I hope the little cat-dude will be fine, I am positive it will. I decided my purpose of life for the time being will be helping nice people. If it wasn't her sitting there + my idiotic habit of taking pictures of everything I see, I would have just passed by that cat, may be cried later in bed about how unfair this world is to all those street cats I love. So, I am obviously not really very nice, but may be helping nice people could make me nice? or a bit nicer than I am so yes, it is 'helping nice people' then.

    oh, and making fun of assholes OF COURSE!

    ps while I was writing this entry a friend of mine asked me "why are we livin? reproduction?" and I was like "holly hell, I was supposed to write this" so i said "dude, right now I am writing you the answer".

    I dedicate this entry to you Betsy. I hope you don't mind me sharing this with the others: BTS' Grandpa died this morning. And I know Betsy loved him a lot. I believe I speak for all the BTS friends and myself, saying we all are here for you not only to laugh at your random madness, but also when you feel sad or lonely :hugs

    ps I am wondering what your purpose of life is or do you have/need any, lovely people out there?

    [​IMG]

    ps2: and I want to add something that I forgot completely, this example illustrates how unity of efforts can work. Me and that woman, we were very very different, but unfortunately I cannot show it to you, so you'd have to believe me (or not). But we were for sure from different walks of life, it's a common goal we had that motivated us to unite our efforts and do a nice little thing for a nice little cat. So the important thing is to look for common goals, not mind-like people. I am no Green Peace dude and she obviously hasn't been bothered by existentialism as much as I was that evening (although you never know, but you get me, I hope), however it occurs we didn't have to hold similar beliefs/views to do something nice together. So, you don't have to be a communist to support Marx's views, because some of them make sense or an anarchist to agree that hungry workers did the right thing by expropriating a factory or gay because you like hugging and kissing people even if they are not of the opposite sex

    Ramblings about Mass Media

    Media takes advantage of us, using our insecurities, fears and complexes, which, to my opinion, we develop due to lack of the ability to reason. Reasoning is the first step against manipulation, as it can help to break through some ridiculous traditions that were implemented into our moral grounds, which media appeals to, in order to generate that nasty feeling of "doing the wrong thing", even though one knows there are reasons to do it . Which also turns people into hypocrites, as they will still feel/do what their nature dictates them, but because it is accepted to be 'immoral' they will hide, while doing that or even suppress their own nature (that's the worst and sends people entirely mad) and pretend on public that they are 'moral' as a result there are 2 categories of people, well, three actually: 1. those who constantly hide their 'bad' habits , not being 100% honest with themselves and others . They try to make themselves feel better through being accepted/respected/adored by others. Such people usually gather in groups and 'adore' each other, because it makes them feel better. They dislike and reject honest people, simply because they are afraid of them. Honesty would destroy their little cozy world, where they basically RIP 2. Those who got tired/bored of being hypocrites and accepted the fact that they are 'immoral' = 'bad' people. Automatically they start associating everything that is 'bad' with themselves and doing things, that are actually not in their nature and they would never do them otherwise. (like hurting others for no reason "I am gonna hurt you just because I am bad", in a few words that's the way our society produces maniacs and serial killers) 3. people who developed the ability to reason and finally found peace and harmony lol
    So, the mass media supports the first two categories and tries to get rid of the third one usually by labeling those individuals with anything that is not in the current morality or tradition, in order to divert mass' sympathy from them. That damn trick of theirs is fabulous, works perfect and people adopted it and practice it themselves for quite a while already. Examples:

    "yes, he sounds reasonable, but his sympathy for Marx/Nietzsche, man, he is communist/racist, fuck him"

    or

    "he sounds reasonable, but he masturbates/watches porn a lot, perv, fuck him"

    or even

    "he sounds reasonable, but what he is trying to do is crazy, fuck him"

    communist, racist, perv, crazy are labels. I don't mind to be called any of them, but to anyone who labels me I'd like to say "now that we officially established that I am let's say crazy, elaborate on what I do and say. Is what I do/say crazy? if yes -why? If you cannot provide any valid reason, then you are crazy and it is time to heal up"

    Not only does mass media label mentally healthy people, it also labels and defines everything for the first 2 categories: what's good and bad, what to wear, eat, believe, watch. Where to go, work, when and how. And slowly puts signs everywhere. Signs help humans act without thinking. The goal is to prevent people from thinking, because thinking helps to develop the ability to reason. NLP (neuro linguistic programming) is in its fullest already, linguistics is very underestimated by ordinary people. Just the way one speaks/writes matters (especially if they do it consciously and know how to manipulate using those skills ). Using linguistics one can make people do unbelievable things, while making them feel they are acting at their own will or even against will of the person who really manipulates them. Lack of the ability to reason makes it nearly impossible to figure out what is real and what's going on. And if you push the limits trying, you can actually end up having a stroke lol That's why people turn to a glass of whiskey, a joint or video games (etc) -to turn off the brain, to stop filtering information and just perceive it whole as it is, in order to relax and not to go nuts. Sometimes they forget to turn it on lol and thus become a tool for those few in whose hands Media is concentrated. Currently they are having tremendous success in promoting mass apathy at certain aspects of our existence.
