Out of the Blue

The conclusion of Sex and the City has my mind racing about an HBO series, but it has nothing to do with drinking cosmopolitans. In fact, "When you woke up this morning everything you had was gone. By half past ten your head was going ding-dong. Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes, like a voice telling you there was something you should know. Last night you were flying but today you're so low - ain't it times like these that make you wonder if you'll ever know the meaning of things as they appear to the others; wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. Don't you wish you didn't function, wish you didn't think beyond the next paycheck and the next little drink' Well you do so make up your mind to go on, 'cos when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone."

That's right, Sopranos season five starts in a mere two weeks.

The fact of the matter is no one can predict the future with much accuracy.

Heh, if you went by my parent's and other elder's oppinions, we should have been a dead species a long time ago when Kruschev was still premier of the Soviet Union.

The fact of the matter is no one can predict the future with much accuracy. So if everyone takes the obviously depressed and in denial Halsy, and Enahs up on thier "lets go out in style" additude then humanity would be fucked. But here in reality not everyone has the same view point, in fact very few people would probably agree with those two. So that being considered, why are you trying to convert them and why are they trying to convert me? I say fuck your opinions, because the only persons opinion I care about is my own. With obvious exceptions for the few people I bother to care about. That being said, you think how ever the fuck you want to think, if you want to party away go ahead, your genetic material wasn't good for the survival of the species if its that selfish. Dosen't matter one shit to me if people would rather stockpile goods or have a massive orgy.

I think its quite humerous that so many people care more about subverting others opinions to thier own, than they care about having well thought out and personally fufilling opinions. In otherwords: when the world ends as long as you aren't trying to make me do what YOU feel is best for ME then I wont try and blow your head off with a 12 guage shotgun. Sounds like a fair deal to me.

I'll simply load up a truck with as many party supplies as I can and head on up to the family farm to party my brains out untill the end. It's better to burn out, than to fade away...

I do not know about everyone else, but when I die I want it to be spectacular, and gruesome!
I mean, you only die once, havenít you always wondered would it would feel like to be blown up (or course, my ideal way would be with-out long suffering).
Maybe see what it is like to have your head chopped off, if you really are conscious and aware for a few seconds after. I mean, you only die once, live it up! (if that makes any sense) It sounds kinda sick and demented at first, but when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. But do not get me wrong, I do not want it to happen for a long time!

I rail because it's in my nature. And if I can change one person's perspective I've achieved something that I consider valuable.

Something you'll learn as you get older is that this species is ultimately doomed. On the whole we're simply to atavistic in our avarice. I can bludgeon people over the head with facts and figures and maybe 1 in 1000 will actually give a shit and try to do something. However, on the whole, most of the species simply doesn't care.

None of this is new, it's been coming down the pipe for decades. The information is freely available to those who choose tomake use of it, but most people...don't. Most people choose evil not because they say yes to it, but because they don't say no. It's the path of least resistence. Doing the right thing is costly on all levels, and our species is a fundamently lazy one all in all.

It's called reality, gentlemen. I suggest you take a big whiff of it. Once you actually well and truly grasp it, then you can be honest about how you want to deal with it. if this species doesn't care enough about it's future to make the changes necessary (and they can do it, they simply won't), then I'm not going to sit around crying for them. I'm going to enjoy the hell out of myself till the end, and fuck you and anyone else who can't grasp that.

"An old man walking the beach at dawn noticed a young man ahead of him picking up starfish and flinging them into the sea. Catching up with the youth he asked what he was doing.
"The starfish will die if they are still on the beach when the sun roasts them with its mid-morning heat," came the answer.
"But the beach goes on for miles, and there are millions of starfish," countered the old man. "How can your effort make any difference?"
The young man looked at the starfish in his hand and then threw it to safety in the waves. "It makes a difference to this one," he said."

"On another note, did anyone else read this story a few years back about this guy who predicted that as a planet, it would take a massive global nightmare (I think he predicted that we'd have to have a disaster or war that killed multiples of millions of people) to shake things up and put us on the right path to being a united race again instead of strangers living next to each other?"

I agree. Saying "oh... we're screwed so I won't try" or "Well, we are fucked, so I may as well contribute to it" are piss poor attitudes to have. It is the people who are realistic about the future are prepare provision that will save humans as a race; and these are not the ones predisposed to total greed, especially that which show disregard for your fellow man. I like to look at the washed out, "they'll do something" faces on the train, count 12 of them, and know that those twelve will die so I can live (see: sustainable human life on planet earth).

Halsy: You are the one preaching all liberal; liberty is nothing if you care not to fight for it for all humans, especially over the long term. Giving up on society and "enjoying it while it lasts" to "burn out" at a gay farm party, if that is your real plan, makes you no better than a rich Republican war mongering college student who will never, ever join the army. Towing a liberal party line while living a life wherein you actually do not give a shit what happens to the race in general is teh epitome of hypocritical.
