colorful noose

humans are idiots.

humans invented the tie. did you ever notice how absolutely ridiculous a tie looks untied? it's a long, useless piece or colorful cloth, and only something as meaningless as humans will get the idea of tying it around one's neck. here, let's pretend we have a hanging with this colorful noose.

it's 2007, idiot

that the fuck is wrong with dj's and their obsession with 80s music. These "hip" dj's who think that starting their sets with a mix of 80s songs make them more popular, who think that somehow playing shitty crap from that God forsaken decade will brand them as cool. you idiots, people dance to that shit literally out of desperation, for the lack of anything better to do, and even then they do so hovering around their tables or while idly sipping their alcohol. the 80s was perhaps the worse decade in history, and those who think that it's cool to be associated with it in any way just watch an mc hammer video

in the eye of the beholder

caution: gay entry

our preconceived notion of beauty is warped by modern culture, and with that i don't mean what we see as beautiful (since beauty IS what we perceive as beautiful), but the rarity of such an occurrance. (warning, cliche) tv, movies, mags all portray beauty as a common thing, something one finds among friends, colleagues and family, when in reality that in its true form, inside a person and outside, it is rarely, if ever, found.

can they be any cheaper?

dubai is practically exploding growth-wise. there is construction everywhere, it's noisy, it's dusty, the roads change every other day and people get lost trying to get around the detours.

at these increasingly annoying road construction sites, there are usually warning signs, with big, yellow flashy lights that form arrows that point you either left or right. but why pay for those when you have cheap, dispensable labor? in almost every road construction site i've been through in dubai, there is an indian standing there waving a red flag. i mean the guys stands in dubai's pleasant weather for a full day and waves a red flag. i've also seen some indians wiping the dust off plastic barriers that keep cars outside the construction site. i mean by the time he got to the last barrier, the first one will need to by wiped again. so there was a barrier wiper guy. flag waver and barrier wiper.

how cheap are these guys? cheaper than a sign?

fing fakes

so some "fancy" restaurants serve evian as their default water option (of course, places that just assume you want water think they're fancy to start with). being sensible enough as not to pay 6 dollars for a bottle of water, i always ask it to be replaced with normal water. i was at one of these arrogant places which exclusively serve evian (the place is in the food court of a fucking mall, how fancy can it be?), so they brought the water and i stared at it, silently judging the place. but hey, the group i was with wanted to eat there so there we were.

when the water was served two of the group asked the waiter if they had other types of water, and he was no, only evian. i was pleaseantly surprised, seeing that were some sensible people left in the world. my joy, however, was short-lived, as when the waiter left one of those who objected stated i don't like evian because i feel it's really heavy. i blinked, but as i was reeling from the first shock of vanity, i was quickly knocked again with oh, my problem with evian is that it doesn't quench my thirst. i was dumb struck.

it's fucking water, you fake idiots. you can't tell the difference. it's water and it quenches your thirst and it's just ridiculously expensive. you're not water connoisseurs, you just think you know what water tastes like.
