Courtney E. Martin For The Win

Good morning.
I can’t write too much right now (not in the write frame – see what I did there??).
Thanks to this, I don’t have to be in the write frame (yeah, I did it again).

Oh, Thanks a whole lot to Word Porn for this one (I don’t regret “liking” that page AT ALL)

I end this with the only two words I should’ve written here:
I agree

Wimpy Fail

So, on Tuesday, my brother and I decide to go and get that R20 breakfast from Wimpy – I don’t know what it’s called, I just like that it’s twenty bones.

The first fail was getting there to find that their R20 breakfast was R23.

The next fail – actually worse because at least with the first one, it could’ve been seen as us having missed the advertisement in which they announced that prices were going up -The Boerie Burger.

Now, I don’t know how much you guys know about food but the only difference between mince, burgers and boerewors is shape… Or packaging.

Wimpy, you didn’t pull a fast one on us – we see what you’re doing.
The Boerie Burger is just a normal burger that you can now sell for more because it seems like something special.

Stop it!!!

Rather buy their standard burger - it's the same thing

Jiddu Krishnamurti For The Win!

I saw a quote once that significantly encompasses why I behave the way I do towards things like trends (regardless in what field) and conventions.

I believe that, if applied, deals with problems from a proactive stance rather than a reactive one (cause level than an effect).

See, society seems to be stuck in being so busy dealing with reactive things (crime, poverty, corruption and so on) that proactive ones can never become part of the agenda.
It’s what I once heard referred to as “being so busy dealing with urgent that we can’t do what’s IMPORTANT” – the person from which I heard didn’t necessarily stress what I did; but he’s not the one writing this, is he (this is a rhetorical question – figured since you let your governments and corporations always tell you what to think, you may have lost the ability to do so independently, so I’m just here to help you *wink*)

I believe the quote says: “Think before you buy what you don’t need, question before you blindly obey what you’re told by those in power – yes, even if it is YOU who are in power.”

If you don’t know Jiddu Krishnamurti, google him, read some of his work – you’ll probably thank me, but that’s not why I’m telling you to do so.

We don’t have race, country or continent problems, we have HUMAN problems and it’s spreading such thinking that will get us to start working on them:

WAKE UP!!!

This Awful Throw Away Culture

I don’t understand littering – if it were something normal, we’d do it in our houses and have other people that pick up after us.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not one for living under such conditions.

I hate how nonchalant people are about it, on some “it’s already dirty, if they don’t care, why should I?”

Try: because someone made sure they kept it clean enough for you initially; not to mention, the fact that someone’s a dick doesn’t give you the right – or even just an excuse – to be one too.

Pick up after yourselves – the world’s overpopulated but it doesn’t need to be overpopulated AND dirty.

Keep the world as clean as you would like your house to be – watch some Youtube videos on cleanliness if you don’t know what a clean place looks like.

This throw-away culture’s not cool, let’s at least throw it away properly – in the BIN.

The Smoker and the Non-smoker

I’ve told you guys about my Head Movies, right?
No?
Well, they’re exactly what the name suggests – scenes that I think up.

I know, right? Who woulda thunk it?!?! *Southern American voice*

Here’s one of my Head Movies:

Smoker:
“Hey, please gimme five bones [currency, not those things you eat calcium to make stronger] so I can buy some air time”

Non-smoker:
“Nah man. You know, if you stopped smoking, you’d have enough money for all the air time you want!”

Smoker:
“Yeah, but then I’d just use all that
air time to tell you what dick you are!”
