the giver

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

The giver: a gray, automatic, precise, feelingless communities world. O yeah, nothing better than a world of individual customers, with color credit cards and feelings they can express with bullets if words can’t cover. What a crock o’shit.

lumea lu nimea’n drum

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Îmi dădu careva un link la un Badea wannabe: două șaorme și una sub gușă, sau poate doar o șaormă bărbierită, vorrrbesc sub titlu’ “Lumea lu’ Banciu”. Șaorma noastră vorrbitoare are doi nasturi fumurii pe post de ochi care baleiază permanent o oportunitate, o șustă ceva, dracu’ știe, în juru’ teleobiectivului. Iaca ce comite la […]

now

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Now I need you off Once upon a time (1977) by Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder. Just some people who lit my youth up. This kind of thing was happening before the religious types Reagan and Thatcher showed up and crapped everything out, their followers, the ferengies, killed all the humour. Did you notice that […]

European Union: how to ensure a stupid administration

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Here’s how to ensure a stupid and mecanic administration in the European Union: First, organize a complex activity of exams, then forget about those who pass them. Second, write the staff regulations, which are reasonable in size but contain idiotic provisions, like: – split the contract and temporary agents into groups, each group with several […]

where your money goes

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

Did you pay your taxes this year? So a Microsoft Windows 7 Professional license costs 300USD, a Microsoft Office 2007 Professional costs 500USD, and Adobe Acrobat costs 450USD and Adobe Photoshop is 700USD. For web design you’d need Adobe Creative suite 4, which costs 1700USD. This means about 3700USD are needed from your taxes to […]

capitalism: a world full of opportunities

Here’s the spam I got today, needless to say, I was not a candidate for a job with this company: Dear Candidate, We have a job offer available for you in response to your initial request in the job search directory. Grey Textiles Limited needs finance co-ordinators in Europe and America in order to improve […]

health service, a message to Obama and to the people everywhere

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

A few weeks ago a little particle of dust managed to enter under one of my eyelids and got stuck there (I was just walking home on a quiet sidewalk). I couldn’t get it out by splashing water onto my eyes, so, after waiting 4 hours maybe it gets out washed by tears, I went […]

wearing a tie

did you ever stop for a minute to contemplate how ineffably stupid it is to wear a tie?

what still stinks in capitalism

Friday, March 20th, 2009

Here are some more capitalist stinkers: In capitalism, everybody’s supposed aim is personal profit, but the humans seek naturally for quality of life instead. There’s no direct link between profit and quality of life, they only intersect somewhere but diverge anywhere else. There’s no need for examples, you can remember them yourself. The reason why […]

what stinks in capitalism

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

I wrote about the free-market, and shown it to be a fake and a tragedy, so I’ll focus on the real market, which is made of producers-consumers (or worse, sellers-buyers) but doesn’t pretend any kind of equilibrium between the two. A producer (collective or not) cannot set-up a factory overnight to produce what consumers need […]
