Turns out I don’t have a cellphone.

The people I once associated myself with are less than reputable characters and that cellphone was sourced from another person I know therefore my friends are still Idiots and I don’t have a cellphone.
This is why I don’t trust people. I was kinda looking forward to having a cellphone so I could annoy people I dislike and contact anyone who holds significance to me.
I’ll give you guys something decent to read soon.
My friends are idiots.

Phone

I’ve never really been one for cell phones. A combination of not really needing one and not really wanting one. The idea of anyone being able to contact me at any time of day sickens me a little. I guess I’m slowly crawling out of the stone age. Finished the last mural and I’m heading further into the world. I’m leaving the plateau, I ended up getting a blackberry curve. The idea of BBM is kind of new to me but most of the people I need to contact have Blackberries. I wouldn’t mind an Iphone but I don’t really like the idea of overpaying for their services or being a pretentious Iphone owner. Let’s be honest all they do is talk about their phone. It’s boring and nobody cares. So I’ll have a working cell for the first time in several years. This could be fun or annoying. I’ll let you know as soon as I know.

Well you guys have really outdone yourselves this time.

90+ Views in one day. I must say I’m quite suprised.

Question time:

Are you here because you’re pretending you care about ugandan kids and happen to stumble upon this place because of your Kony 2012 search?

Are you here because the Kony 2012 hipstergasm is annoying the crap out of you?

Are you a regular?

Either way, it’s nice to see the numbers pick up again. I think it’s going to annoy the crap out of me the same as when I got a traffic bump from my stumble-upon post. I considered deleting it at one point.
I wonder if this is going to be another one of those. You’re welcome to keep reading if you please, if not then leave. I’m not making you stay.

Later,
Misanthropist.

I found some peace.

Things are better now with me and my woman, which is great, we just dropped it all in the end. I decided it was kind of a dumb thing to fight over. So everything is okay with that now. I’m planning some big things and on top of that I’m helping some friends with their garden.

It’s quite big and was a total mess before the initial clean up and the gardening. There’s also some landscaping to be done. The garden was a dumping groud/ shit hole to start with. The owner has a lot of demands. We removed a water feature and it’s tank in the ground beneath it. I’m breaking a cemented stone pole in the ground with masonry hammers and it is a bastard. Mainly I did this for the exercise.

It’s a hell of a lot of work but it’s outside, it gets me away from people for a while, allows me to be creative and fit. For some reason I come back physically exhausted after 9 hours but I feel really good afterwards. Don’t get me wrong I ache like shit from removing huge granite boulders all day, brick work and slabbing but I feel good.

All the removal, clean up and mowing and prep has been done but this is going to go on for a while. I’ll be pretty fit by the end of it. I don’t know why I feel so good after grafting all day in the sun but it’s nice to come home, eat, relax and do whatever I want. The work makes me feel good. It doesn’t involve a lot of mental work but I can be creative which is nice. I enjoy gardening really. I have decent experience of growing vegetables, peppers, herbs and all sorts of things.

It had to be ready for their family party and we got a lot done in 9 hours, the front garden needs to be done but it’s nothing really. That stone post running the length of the garden is my enemy. I don’t have a proper pneumatic drill so I used a masonry hammer pick and one of the granite boulders to get it cracked. These granite boulders are the bastards. Probably more than I should lift alone but they worked to get into it.

I had to dig into the ground for a few feet deep to get to it, tried to shovels under it to lift it to no avail. The thing is cemented and completely pointless. Took me an hour to break into a section so I could start breaking it apart. It’s the hardest stone ever and supported by concrete so you can imagine.
I will have that thing out soon, then some more cleaning and the front garden. Then landscaping and planting. It takes a while to see the fruits of these labors.

It’s really helped me relax in a strange way. I feel good maybe it’s the exercise or maybe it’s because I found a short-term goal with a purpose. Whatever it is I’m sure it is good for me and in the future it could be just another way to make money, an alternative. I could maybe make money from it as a hobby. I have the knowledge, experience and know the science. It’s a possibility.

I don’t know what it is that made me feel so good but I feel quite rested, no worries and everything is good. I ache like a bitch but everything is as it should be. Don’t get me wrong people and current events still annoy the crap out of me but I can ignore it.

My view on the Kony thing in a nutshell

I’m sure you’ve heard about the Kony thing by now, yeah, I have too and it’s pretty annoying. It really began to piss me off the more I learned about the situation. The thing that really drive that ball home is the hipsters endorsing it. Facebook was used as a viral platform for what some people are calling a scam.

I have a lot of issues with this particular situation. From what I’ve heard and researched since this began by woman wanting me to watch a 27 minute video and my refusal to do so, then a little research and some history. I also learned things about the so-called ‘charity’ and heard the words of someone from the area, this was from youtube however.

I first read that very little money, a figure around 30% of donations actually go to the people. Then later I hear that al-Qaeda is a bigger threat and that LRA hasn’t been active for around six years, this apparently coming from her family in Uganda and her father asked why they were even talking about it.
The Man who made the report has benefited substantially. It was also said that Kony may even be dead or out of Uganda at this time so giving any money to capture him would be pointless seeing as the army aren’t allowed to pursue him into other jurisdictions. And besides what kind of equipment is 30% going to get them.

The People who want to raise awareness are so ill-informed or mostly shallow idiots. The cause is a good one, the causes of most charities are. Charity does not work in all cases. I believe this to be one of those cases. Charity isn’t going to solve this problem. These so-called aware and conscious people forget that this sort of thing has been happening in the region for 20+ years and there has even been a genocide. Why do people suddenly care now. You could have helped a long time ago and if you weren’t alive then you could do more good in the peacecorp, or some humanitarian group. Or maybe you did it to say ‘look everyone watch me giving!’
or ‘look at how much I gave’
alternatively ‘Watch, can you see me caring’
You’re all bad people. Deal with it.

And finally the worst offenders in all of this. The Hipsters. You have spread this like wildfire over facebook, similarly to the way most people did. The awareness hipsters are the worst, what happened to freeing Tibet assholes?
You really do disgust me. There are a lot more of you than I first thought. A little close to home for my liking. So I have set up bear traps baited with hot-topic products and pabst.

(update, just saw picture of members of said charity posing with kony’s men. There does need to be military intervention. Surgical intervention. You don’t want to kill these kids, you want to kill their leadership. No way should it be a large military operation. Plus giving them funds is kinda stupid who know where it’ll end up, african governments being corrupt as they can be. It’ll be some time before they can capture or kill him. Lets hope they can do it with minimal loss of children forced into this madness. The charity in itself is still useless to anyone except those profiting from it.)

My intelligence is definitely suffering.

I’ve been happy and aloof for so long that I haven’t questioned a single thing, you could say that for the first time I stopped examining life and the people around me. The mind is like a knife, you use it a lot, if you don’t sharpen the knife it becomes dull. My mind is in need of sharpening. I have more free time now so I’m going to start reading more and studying, I’ll also do some revision of the topics I’m rusty on. I remember when I used to be told that I could do anything and people would say I’m a genius. To be honest I’m not a genius. With an understanding of human nature, the people around us and keen observation you can work out 90% of things. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to go over some basic sciences and continue to question everything. I’ve lived so much of my life in autopilot. Just doing not thinking. It’s time to take the wheel and start driving again. I have to make my own decisions, based on what’s best for me and not my emotions. This isn’t me saying I’m going to leave my girlfriend and party hard in Vegas. This is me saying that I need to remember who I am, what I believe and the expectations I’ve been trying to Ignore.

Imagine looking in from the outside for your whole life, then being let in only to walk outside again and find myself locked out. I’m looking in from outside from now on. They may let me in from time to time but I have to accept that I live outside and I’ll never be one of themĀ  no matter how hard I try to deceive them and even myself.

Well I’ve gotta fetch things from the wide world. That’s today’s second quest.
Part 2 in a little bit.

One more thing.

You’ll get an update soon on the issues mentioned in the previous post.
I should have more material soon, at the moment with everything going on I’m not exactly thinking clearly enough to put a post together.

I’ve had my misanthropy booster and there’s plenty to hate. I should be posting more often.
If there’s one thing I still can’t bring myself to hate, its her.
