Murugan again; living evocation, great pic

Every second fool has a cam these days; taking a predictable view and bandying a banal ethic. But this guy always goes one step further and looks in his own special way, and it shows. He shares it with us again. Look here and here.

Dear reader, how are you feeling? how are your nicely growing bloody investments coming along, racing like your pointless libido that has by now doused the urge? how are all your tidy arrangements coming along? your rightness? your loved one with the little prick? hows it coming - your assets, your network of friends? your NAV, you boastfuls, your point? And now tell me: whats the point? What's the point when you did nothing to help the man who was lying lifeless on the busy pavement of sj road today evening next to his 3-wheel cycle for handicaps. People walking by without stopping. And you in the auto in passing, shattered. Ofcourse he might have drunk passed out. but Fuck it, he fell, and people in falls anyway anyhow can concuss. There was a clinic 20m away. What are the rules christ - it was made safer for strangers to help a few years back. But ofcourse, its easier to help animals.
Please stop and act. What makes us think again when it comes to humans.
Let go lord. i must learn. but what is the truth?

The way some people go about pasting private life event pics in public spaces makes me agree more than ever with Nassim Nicholas: not to 'approach anything as a game to win, except of course if it is a game...I have also learned to stay away from people of a competitive nature, as they have a tendency to commoditize and reduce the world to categories...There is something nonphilosophical about investing one's pride and ego into a "my house/library/car is bigger than that of others in my category"-it is downright foolish to claim to be the first in one's category all the while sitting on a time bomb.'
Touche. I also think Ch7 of FbR- 'The Problem of Induction' is the best in my assessment. So far. Because I havent finished yet.

Kaiser of crap maybe, but not surprisingly - compelling.

Weekend indeed. We had to trawl through town to find a place that was screening the finals. GInn was, so we sat there through the highest class beauty of tennis. Just the first 2 sets. No apologies here for the lengths I will go to watch key finals. But plenty of thanks to the ppl who consented to tag along and enjoy it as well. Almost no unforced errors or nerves and from a distance you couldnt even tell one from the other from the shots and coverage. Women's matches were something of a joke in comparison and if it weren't for the taunting presence of the (ruling inspite of being erratic) Williams sisters, the women's tour would be exposed for what it really is: a charade. Except for a handful of lady players who are barely challenged and so left to charade, everyone else seems to be jerking off. A pity. What does it take to be dead serious. Maybe spending a little less time bleaching hair and primping.

Daddy killed a Cat

Who could have ever thought killing a cat by hanging could renew a marriage.A few moons back, that's what my dad did. He didn't mean to renew anything, just kill the cat who was being a perfect nuisance getting into community food vats, drowning, gagging, and wanking out. One day he decided cat's time had come. He nabbed the brat on the run, had it wrung, and hung. When mum told me about this last week, I was a bit appalled but warmed at the thrill she didn't try to hide. She said she had never before heard of anyone catching a cat and killing it. Dad did have pets of this kind as a kid yes but not in the owning sense. I guess this brat really had it coming. But we wont forget too easily how visibly broken he was when he thought he had run over a pigeon. He was broken for a very long time.
We respect the distinction. Birds are something divine.

'Kebab rat does a Lazarus'

A rodent first found for sale in a Laotian kebab stall is the sole surviving species of a group thought extinct for 11 million years AND NOT the first known member of a new order of living mammals as initially held.
Lazarus effect: when an organism turns up after a long gap in fossil records.
