Life the last three days was a rollercoaster of emotions! I´m swinging like a manic-depressiv from intense highs to terrible lows within minutes, dependant on the last phone call.
Today I´m fortunately quite calm. At least its fix that I get the job for real, though it´s not too sure when. Either the first of september or the 17th...
I won´t bore you with the details, lets just say bureaucracy sucks! ;-)
Anyway, yesterday I heard two bits on the news which I thought are worth a discussion.
Let me know your opinion!
The first thing was a new genre of internet-vids which are very popular in the states and grow more and more popular here in europe too.
They show young sexy models in not much more than tiny bikinis firing heavy arms and all kinds of weapons on dummy´s (artificial blood included, of course).
Being questioned about the possibility of weapon-glorification, or the belittlement of the danger of arms, the producers and the models likewise just said that it would be more like a "sports-video" and there would be no risk of any such things!
I can´t believe this!
Really, weapons are deadly, they are not for fun. In my opinion only heavy trained persons after passing a psychological test should be allowed to carry them at all!
There are other means of self-defence too.
*shakeshead* I really don´t get those people.
The other thing i heard was a bit more funny and about wales. I was all ears when I heard "wales" from the speaker, because as you probably know unightfog
and I will go there pretty soon for holiday.
Anyway, there is a small hinduistic group which possesses and worships an ox named Shambo.
No problem so far that´s what hindus do, right? yeah.
Now, this ox got tested positive on TB. And the welsh and the whole british government has a law about infected cattle must be slaughtered to avert further spread.
But the members of this group won´t let their ox get killed, because for them it´s holy. They even built a human wall against any intruders (aka police).
I understand both sides. The one side is law, the other side is religion.
But there is a small detail which made me think.
This ox is an OX. And usually in hinduism the COW is holy, because she stands as a symbol for the goddesses and maternal provision. So cow. Not bull. And certainly not ox!
Yeah, well. I´m no lawyer and I am no hindu. So I will not critizise either party. I justed wanted to share and hear your thoughts!
Have a nice weekend! :-)
