Agora

I watched this film. Agora. According to Wikipedia an agora was: An interesting detail is that this is a Greek world while the film is located in Egypt. The film brings amazing views of the ancient city of Alexandria and also of its famous library which was one of the Wonders of the World. IMDB says about this film: This synopsis says enough about the film. The film showed me how amazing people can be when…

Freedom beyond expectations. Or beyond comprehension?

Freedom? What freedom? Some of you already know, some don't. Some may have guessed it. And some of you may be shocked (for you I feel a bit sad). I'm a naturist. What is naturism? The first thing many people think of, unfortunately, is what the internet throws around so eagerly. Naked people doing all kinds of things that are most certainly not safe for work. First off: that is not naturism. Naturism, also called nudism, simply…

Bose IE2 in-ear headphones

Yes, I went ahead and bought them. Even though they're pricey. Finding the easiest way to actually put them in took me a while as I lack knowledge on sticking stuff in my ears. It was even a bit of an odd feel to have these additional bits there but they keep the headphones in place and I very quickly didn't feel them any more. Good thing I have another phone. The Meizu MX-5 Ubuntu.

Mr Trump. The one from America

This man frightens me. Donald Trump. He wants to be the president of the US of A first, and of the world after that. The things he says and the plans he has are worrying. His presidential website states that Obamacare is horrible. Somehow he will "restore economic freedom" which then will make for "free market principles and working together to create sound public policy that will broaden healthcare access, make healthcare more affordable and…

No life. But no death either.

A home for old people. One where the very old people are. People who have nearly nothing left to live for, who are literally waiting for the end. Have you ever been there? No? Humour me and do it. It's an eye opener. Go there and look around you. That is where society will send us. People have to get older and older because of science and health care. (Because we get older we're also…

Geen leven. Maar ook geen dood.

Een bejaardentehuis. Een waar de heel oude mensen zitten. De mensen die bijna niets meer hebben om voor te leven, die letterlijk zitten te wachten op het einde. Ben je er wel eens geweest? Nee? Doe eens. Het is iets dat je ogen opent. Ga er eens heen en kijk eens goed om je heen. Dat is waar de maatschappij ons heen stuurt. De mensen moeten steeds ouder worden vanwege de wetenschap en de gezondheidszorg.

I am not normal.

I am not normal. And I'll always do what I can to be not normal. Why? Consider what 'normal' is. Normal is what is considered the norm. The thing that most people do. That's the norm. Many people these days don't seem able to distinguish normal from civilised or humane or decent. Is it normal to be afraid of the idiots that make up this 'Islamic State' (which has, in my opinion, very little to…

Leave it to the car

Many people do not want a self driving car. This is of course the human factor where the human wants to be in control of the machine. The ironic part in this is that the humans want power steering, power windows and more power options to the car so they don't have to expend their own power. Leave that to the car. The humans also wants GPS navigation so they don't have to look at…

A Christmas question for Muslims

Yes, you read that right. I wonder how Muslims perceive Christmas. Most of the 'white world' is now submerged in the holy days that will last a week or perhaps longer for some. It's nice to know that some people in that white world still remember what this Christmas is about (many know it is about a tree, presents, and love and peace on the dinner table). Pagans have their own version of Christmas. It's…

Life and death.

Deaths in Paris. Deaths in planes shot down. Deaths in schools by trigger-happy humans. And I am going to clean the bathroom... There is no way I can even try to understand what makes these people do what they do. Logically I can explain it. Influences. Hate-mongering. Mind-messing by twisted, sick individuals. But understand? No. I can't. And I am proud of that. It lifts my mind out of their gutter. I hate what happens…
