Dear girls,

you are not as fat as you think you are. Actually stop thinking about fat. Altogether. Fat this, fat that, fuck fat. There is nothing interesting about it. It is simply another kind of calorie supplier, just like protein and carbs. Did you ever hear anyone say, “honey you’ve gotten too proteic!”? Hell, I haven’t! Fun

Thought stream

It is amazing how little people think of the fact that everything is a convention. I find it astounding, the jail of our social conditioning. But is it more than just that? Because it surely sounds crazy … Sometimes I strongly believe the world is led by insane people. And not only that, but also the

Going to the doctor

Blue neon hospital hallway. A place where hope is halted at the door and faith takes its place. In hospital hallways one finds more faith than in any city church. The doctor is for blips of failing reason a saint materialised as a white robed human. What has medical science made of us? Us, creatures

Cheaters always win

If humans were honestly following nature’s rules, then we’d be long gone because of winter, our frail bodies and the millions of beasts wanting to eat us. But yet we had to play the game of life! Our solution? Cheating. That is what we humans do. We cheat. We make up new rules of the

Perspective

Persistence is a greater virtue for the lazy. You have the right to arrogance if you make a living from your art. Pride is a worse vice for the gifted.

Because you somehow make that time. When you are driven, you suddenly can . Why? Because you jump in. When you are driven, you suddenly find

You do not need to consume

Consumption is not an actual need, it is a necessity Needs differ from necessities, because humans can rationalize adversity. Rationalisation is the action of attempting to explain or justify behaviour or an attitude with logical reasons, even if these are not appropriate. A need is solvable adversity. For all adversity too complex to solve we

Inspiration is a myth

The thing about inspiration is: it doesn’t exist on its own! It all starts with wishful thinking: Hope and action together result in Wishful Thinking All inspirational messages are wishful thinking made of hope and action. “Everything happens for a reason!”, … means: let’s hope there is a reason that will justify our self indulging actions. “Life is

Power is sugar

Peter Douglas Molyneux is the creator of Black and White. In a hot summer night I was left alone with a computer, coffee and this game. After about seven hours of gameplay, I remember walking in a complete rush into the bedroom, and waking up my wife shouting from the top of my lungs: I’m

I hate the MVP culture

I am grateful to be me

Yes. Exactly as you read it. I have seen in my brief existence a lot of people. I am grateful to be me. I am grateful that I can let go. I’ve let go of everything that went too far away from me. This makes me light. I don’t have no special skill, I simply

In a future without ownership:

be careful what you wish for, it might just come true If that future it is not socialist, will we be slaves of wages?

Why We Suffer

I think: There are only two things in life which cause genuine suffering: obsession and addiction. Subjective existence constantly passes through reality, fantasy, imagination, reason, will and action. It also goes the other way around passing through reality, action, will, reason, imagination and fantasy. Whenever we’re active we start by changing reality with some action,

The opposite of freedom is boredom

The opposite of freedom is boredom Freedom is the most important thing for an aware intelligent creature. For an aware intelligent creature freedom is more important than being alive.

Be predictable

The problem with market research is that consumers don’t think how they feel. They don’t say what they think and don’t do what they say — David Ogilvy.

You Have My Support For Discriminating

Against Stupidity The red person from the picture above is discriminated against for reasons of stupidity, not because they’re red. It is absolutely OK to discriminate, to downgrade and to communicate your separate and right stance constantly if stupidity is the reason, because stupidity is dangerous and you are not to be expected to work

Romania the secret service playground

Happiness = Reality — Expectations?

This is the formula of happiness. No go be happy! Just kidding … (a rebooted response) It is exactly this line of thinking that, in my opinion, underpins unhappiness, said Alex Schiff in an article.

The arthritis of the world

In this day and age normal war of country versus country makes no sense. War today is the war of the political leaders waged on their own people. What seemed to be progress pushed us closer to enabling sociopaths and other emotionally empty or unstable, but charismatic, people to seize power in an unchallenged manner.

A Transcendent Drone

When I was a kid, I’ve always dreamed of becoming someone important. As a grownup, sure, that looks superficial and completely ill defined, but when you’re eight and bored taking a bath, there is nothing better and sweeter than broad ill defined dreams. It was one of those times when this rebel thought started living

When Sun and Rain compromise, the result is Rainbow.

How to compromise without diminishing yourself? I don’t know exactly, but think about it … Mediocrity comes from middle and height. A human reaching on mediocrity is shortening its stature.

The day You can’t even imagine, am I right? You can’t even think for one second that you did anything wrong … It is as if there are plains of silence floating above some deep white thick warm clouds which hover on top of one another. You know this is the right thing. I mean, who
