I often think of an early commemorative lately:

Sometime in early September can be, so the school has just begun. I am not yet of school age, so I spend my time with my grandparents. I'm sitting outside in the garden, in a sandbox, which my dear grandfather made ​​for me. Here are the new games that my parents brought for me from Yugoslavia. Two Matchbox, a green road-roller with red wheels and the blue excavator. The sunshine filters through the playful plum tree leaves which the breeze moves gently. The sky was a so beautiful blue color, as can be only the clear blue sky. So all I have to build a road in the sand. All the stuff, that the whole world is so extraordinarily beautiful that I begun to cry there, alone.
Perhaps accross tissue of space and time, then and there, I felt something from the future?

Why I'm not surprised while reading this?
Humans are slowly but surely losing intellectual and emotional abilities, article suggests

I would agree that on an evolutionary basis that big buisness can and do cater to the selfish and immoral people of society.

There is absolutely no reason for society to have gone down the path that it has done, two world wars and massive amounts of economic growth on the basis that one country might invade another one just because their military is larger is purely illogical.

War has made all of us breed like rabbits, and as a result of that the overpopulation has forced all of us to work in jobs that are inhumane just to survive to say the least and as a result I believe that humanity has lost its way and become enslaved by the mega corporate-government machine.

The fact that we cannot live on a simple part time job these days saddens me the most out of anything that I have heard in the last 10 years, because it is that which allows us true freedom within our lives, to enjoy life, instead our lives are belted down and saddled as much as possible.

And our environments, especially in europe are becoming even more paved and industrialised as time goes on. Whereas merely 50 years ago it was all farmland.

Agreed.

The tranquility is the secret of longevity.
And that's why I will not live long.
(I said this to my daughter, after I having fought with that damned dishwasher-machine.
Perhaps there is still no diode in it, except for one or two LEDs.
But it's still a filthy vile device.
Rather, I struggle with a Cylon Centurion.
Why I not dish-washing with my hands rather.
Never mind. I won now, exceptionally.)
My daughter asks me to:
More wisdom for today?
No doubt, she is the granddaughter of her grandmother.

Indeed, agreed completely, I see so many people my age running around "like a chicken with their head cut off" doing incredulous things to their minds/bodies cars/finances.

music/movies/tv shows are what keep me off the streets. I intend to live until I'm 130 years old, with a constant low stress level I might even make it a success.

Haha, its incredible just how far they will go to make a simple device more complicated and hence more unreliable. Disposable products indeed, no matter what the cost is to us the customer, 2-5-10 years after its manufactured.

My mother had bought an Italian in-wall oven about 8 years ago, when I had opened it not 6 months ago inorder to see if it was repairable I had found that the fragile timer/clock board and fan wasn't insulated from the interior of the oven, so a capacitor that was rated for 135c was being exposed to temperatures as high as 250c at some points and the squirrel cage fan had evaporated all of its ball bearing lubricant.

Planned obsolescence indeed.

I own one plate, one knife, one fork, and two small spoons for this exact reason, and I clean each one by hand everytime that I cook dinner.

I am a bachelor and I don't need 8 plates, 10 forks, 10 knives, 10 spoons, or 10 pots and I am too lazy to keep them all clean! :P

Bravo!

Wherever I look all over the world, there are all lies.
I can not accept it.
But I still live now. (or there is existence would be the right expression.)
My son had a highly developed sense of justice.
This was probably led to his death.
Perhaps he could have been an opportunism.
I do not know.
But I suffer constantly.
This is my existence.
And I do not believe in anything.
Maybe that's why I'm who I am.
But nevertheless I would like to think I am one of the only ones.
Of course this is true all of us.

Wacky

I again ran out of beer.
So do not be surprised that I'm suffering.
What is this if not unhappiness?
There is still some Club'99.
But I don't like whiskey.
Mainly without ice.

I think the light bulb is not essential.
But the phenomenon that it represents.
