Crappy Bullshit

I recently noticed that stupidity is contagious!!
People actually believe the forwarded emails they receive !!! and do forward them on !!
This email (among other similar emails) reached me through an educated person, that actually works in IT and technology... anyone could easily identify that this is fake, and recognize the intentionally inserted "it worked" messages at the end of the email..
This proves one thing, most ppl believe anything easily...
If stupidity kills, the world population will shrink big time... but probably wont remain as fun..

SuperMario Flash Game

I love it too much that i cudn't but to post this!!

Man Oriented

There's this silly thing that was going on at Facebook recently:

Ladies lets have a little fun with the status and make the guys really confused because they hate it when women start putting similar status on and they have no idea what were talking about.
The idea is you put how many cms depending on your mood:
12cm = completely crazy
13cm = Sleepy
14cm = bored at home or at work
15cm = Party time
16cm = missing my ex
17cm = really happy
18cm = studying or working
19cm = I'm stupidly in love
20cm = Sexually satisfied
21cm = in love with the wrong man
22cm = with my boyfriend but in love with somebody else
23cm = want sex
24cm = really happy with my love
* the idea is that you put mmmm..... in front of the cms example: mmmmm...... 18cm
join in the fun and send to your mates.


A guy friend of mine that happened to know about it -thx to Google- put his status as 23cm... I wonder if a gurl chose that number, implying that she wants sex (23cm = want sex), what do you think would happen then? lol mema3ah!!

It was normally ok and acceptable by ppl for the guy to imply that he wants it, but I bet if it was a gurl the guys wont rest till they all make sure she gets what she wants, and probably more!!
It's still not acceptable for women to talk or mention sex in our society, & she who does will get humiliated, and most of all considered a bitch! Alright, we don't even wanna talk about it!!

We're living in a man-oriented society! cheers guys, you win again, it's your era :)

So what?

Plug & Play

I was thinking the other day -wohooo finally!!- , no seriously, i was thinking about religion -again!!- and imagined the world in a very weird prospective perspective... like let's say 2~3K years from now, ppl would be looking back at us and calling us the "religion age" like we call the "ice age", where in that ice-age ppl used to believe in what we think are stupid stuff...
Then, in my imaginary far future, ppl will describe our age as the generations that were obsessed about something they created, followed and worshipped for centuries and named it "religion"..... The first image that came to my mind that ppl then would be living peacefully in harmony and would be loving to each other (my typical utopian vision of all times) since they will not have religion and thus will be extremely accepting to each other, will not be judgmental and thus won't have religious wars! -how naive i am to think this way- then I remembered our humanity facts, that humanity is a fucked-up ugly shit, and humans amongst other races do the most disgusting and humiliating things to both human race and other races... So obviously NO.. the world won't be better off without religion (not sure if it's better with it anyways, i can't tell)..

I came to this geeky analogy while thinking, it's like we -humans- are the hardware devices, and religions are the driver software, more like a user manual maybe, there are many versions of this driver software, but they all agree on the same basics and do the same job, which is to drive the plugged hardware to it's best.. BUT..... WHY! why was humanity created to need guidance??? why is it this ugly stinky bullshit?? why do ppl torture other ppl and animals? why do fathers rape daughters? why do ppl fuck animals? why this? why that? why why why?????
WHY aren't we a plug & play race?? like angels maybe.. where we wouldn't need any "driver" or religion to tell us what to do and what's the best for us? why do we need religion to tell us that hurting ppl is not allowed while we feel like hurting them?? why don't we simply NOT feel like hurting them, and NOT need religion?

Then I (as my usual thinking pattern) calmly remembered.... this race (the plug&play race) already exists in religion and is demonstrated in angels.... and we humans are the less advanced race, and we have to accept this fact and work by it, or don't... whatever suits you! meh

[Music] Home

Shine- Lake of fire
Lines take me higher
My mind drips desire
Confined and overtired

Living this charade
Is getting me nowhere
I can't shake this charade
The city's cold blood calls me home
Home, It's what I long for
Back home, Where I belong

The city- It calls to me
Decadent scenes from my memory
Sorrow- Eternity
My demons are coming to drown me

Help- I'm falling, I'm crawling
I can't keep away from its clutch
Can't have it, this habit
It's calling me back to my home
Pt.1

Pt.2

NATURE

A subtle chain of countless rings
The next unto the farthest brings;
The eye reads omens where it goes,
And speaks all languages the rose;
And, striving to be man, the worm
Mounts through all the spires of form.

Our age is retrospective. It builds the sepulchres of the fathers. It writes biographies, histories, and criticism. The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs? Embosomed for a season in nature, whose floods of life stream around and through us, and invite us by the powers they supply, to action proportioned to nature, why should we grope among the dry bones of the past, or put the living generation into masquerade out of its faded wardrobe? The sun shines to-day also. There is more wool and flax in the fields. There are new lands, new men, new thoughts. Let us demand our own works and laws and worship.

Undoubtedly we have no questions to ask which are unanswerable. We must trust the perfection of the creation so far, as to believe that whatever curiosity the order of things has awakened in our minds, the order of things can satisfy. Every man's condition is a solution in hieroglyphic to those inquiries he would put. He acts it as life, before he apprehends it as truth. In like manner, nature is already, in its forms and tendencies, describing its own design. Let us interrogate the great apparition, that shines so peacefully around us. Let us inquire, to what end is nature?

All science has one aim, namely, to find a theory of nature. We have theories of races and of functions, but scarcely yet a remote approach to an idea of creation. We are now so far from the road to truth, that religious teachers dispute and hate each other, and speculative men are esteemed unsound and frivolous. But to a sound judgment, the most abstract truth is the most practical. Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is, that it will explain all phenomena. Now many are thought not only unexplained but inexplicable; as language, sleep, madness, dreams, beasts, sex.

Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul. Strictly speaking, therefore, all that is separate from us, all which Philosophy distinguishes as the NOT ME, that is, both nature and art, all other men and my own body, must be ranked under this name, NATURE. In enumerating the values of nature and casting up their sum, I shall use the word in both senses; -- in its common and in its philosophical import. In inquiries so general as our present one, the inaccuracy is not material; no confusion of thought will occur. Nature, in the common sense, refers to essences unchanged by man; space, the air, the river, the leaf. Art is applied to the mixture of his will with the same things, as in a house, a canal, a statue, a picture. But his operations taken together are so insignificant, a little chipping, baking, patching, and washing, that in an impression so grand as that of the world on the human mind, they do not vary the result.

Career Path Crisis

It's that time of the career path where things change and you don't do what you love doing anymore... after certain years of experience you become a "senior" and you're expected to manage projects rather than executing them...
You manage the team, the people you envy for doing what you love, while you're swamped in writing proposals, attending presales meetings, maintaining project plans, burn charts, check-points, deadlines, client communication, emails urgent boring stuff yeffff someone get me out of here !!!!


This happens when you work in small to medsized or startup companies, it's good as a start so you won't be too specific or specialized in one thing.. . i mean, if you work in small places, you get the chance to fulfill multiple roles: UI designer, user-experience designer, OOP designer, coder and QA... so it's kinda comprehensive experience, but it reaches a point where you get all the "needed" knowledge and experience to start managing a team.. and this is exactly when the "doing-what-you-love" phase starts collapsing...
In order to keep yourself in the operations level, you have 3 options
1. You either join a really well established and big company which would appreciate your years of experience rather than overqualifying them.. you would then become specialized in one too-specific area, which is not a disadvantage anymore at this point of your career-path, since you have already gained the comprehensive knowledge.
2. Compromise your salary and insist to stay as a Software Engineer or whatever your specialty is, in the same place you work at or a similar one.
3. OR swamp yourself with extra part-time and freelance projects to quench your passion to do what you enjoy doing..

The first option in not available in Jordan and getting it outside is harder than I thought it would be, the second will simply guarantee you a low-salary forever.. I'd go for the third and be whining about it once in while.. 14~20 daily working hours... Get me out of Jordan!

24 hours are Never enough for one day!!!

Goldsmiths

I love brain teasers..

There are 10 goldsmiths, one of them cheats and deducts 10% of any gold quantity he sells... 
The king has a scale and wants to know which of them is the cheater... What will he do to know the cheater given that he will use the scale only once?

Roads are much more nicer when you don't know where you are.

Perfect Timings

I guess I found out why things are much more prettier and enjoyable in our minds than in reality.... it's all bcz of the timing... we would imagine or recall certain scenes and scenarios when we feel like having them or living them, when it's exactly the perfect time... when we want them the most, when the mindset is ready!

I'll set a basic example and you apply it to anything else. You would imagine a delicious meal when you're hungry, if you happened to have the same meal at that exact time it would be equally delicious and enjoyable.....
It's just a matter of timing! and yet again, it's all temporal.... ridiculous life.. Very ridiculous!
