Life is for Living

This blog is to collect random thoughts that don't really have a structure, except a publishing chronology, and even that is unlikely to follow the creation chronology.

Calm, excited, weak, strong, funny, serious, lazy, worker, irresponsible, thinker, shallow, selfish, generous, spontaneous, impulsive, undecided, poor, rich, tall(ish), ignorant, cultured, sophisticated, procrastinator, stoopid, clever. Pick any two, or more... ;-) 
One of my favorite quotes: "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well reserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... 'Wow! What a ride!' "

Generally interested in a lot of subjects:
- Artificial Intelligence (mostly because there's so little Natural Intelligence around)
- 3D printing
- DIY projects (including home foundry, electronics, general hacking)
- Scuba diving
- Mountaineering
- Paragliding
- Music
- Arts (mostly visual arts) including street art
- Dance
- Intentional communities
- Society in general, how to fix the current mess in particular, or rather how to escape it

Getting ready for the plesidential erection.

A few days ago, while at the public library, my gaze fell upon a most interesting book title: "How to shovel manure - and other life lessons for the country woman".
Everybody wants to live in the great outdoors, it seems, and on hearing the BS spewed by politicians on the approach of the plesidential erection, I thought this book certainly would have many an advice for the immediate future.

Politicians (May the fleas of a thousand camels infest their genitals and their fingers turn to fish-hooks) are positioning themselves for this race, and advertising, media and other propaganda executives rub their hands in delight.

The amounts spent during the campaign get little attention beyond the sensational magnitude. Who pays these costs?
But more importantly, what is the use of the campaign? Impartial electorate information ?


Que se vayan todos!
