No por antes madrugar antes amanece más temprano


Lo más triste de los coches autónomos será todas las veces que los ocupantes fallezcan a mitad del viaje y cuando lleguen tus invitados a la cena o el repartidor de pizza, sean cadáver. Eso llevará a la invención de sistemas de monitorización del estado de salud dentro del vehículo que en caso de emergencia redirigirán el coche al hospital o al tanatorio más cercano.

- "Ha llegado a su destino".

- "Pero estoy en una morgue, esto es muy incómodo."
- "Ah sí, Señor, obviamente el algoritmo de optimización de rutas ha sido actualizado y lo trajo aquí cinco minutos antes de lo que el monitor de salud esperaba. Vamos a dar una vuelta a la manzana y olvidar que esta situación incómoda ha ocurrido."

Historia circular de ida y vuelta...


The word is about, there's something evolving,
Whatever may come, the world keeps revolving...
They say the next big thing is here,
That the revolution's near,
But to me, it seems quite clear
That's it's all just a little bit of history repeating.
The newspapers shout a new style is growing,
But it don't know if it's coming or going,
There is fashion, there is fad
Some is good, some is bad
And the joke rather sad,
That it's all just a little bit of History repeating.
And I've seen it before
And I'll see it again
Yes, I've seen it before
Just little bits of history repeating
Some people don't dance, if they don't know who's singing,
Why ask your head, it's your hips that are swinging
Life's for us to enjoy
Woman, man, girl and boy,
Feel the pain, feel the joy
Aside set the little bits of history repeating
Just little bits of history repeating
And I've seen it before
And I'll see it again
Yes, I've seen it before
Just little bits of history repeating

Stuck



by Caro Emerald

I close my eyes and dream about a sunny holiday
I wish that I was beachin' down on Saint Tropez
Or sitting in the lobby at the fabulous Pierre
With diamonds on my fingers and not a single care
Instead I'm on the Avenue where nobody goes
With fields of green that wilted like a last summer rose
Some people call it paradise, but I call it pain
Baby take me anywhere, but not here again
Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do
Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do
You promised me a motorcade and endless perfume
A palace in Geneva with a perfect view
And dreams painted yellow like the colour of gold
And dine with kings and queens until the food gets cold
Instead I'm on the edge of all I thought I would be
This dream is now a comedy I don't wanna see
Some people call it laughter but I call it pain
Baby take me anywhere but not here again
Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do
Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do
Oh I do
I know we have a chemistry
This combination's heavenly
But don't forget you promised me
Everything, everything
I know we have a chemistry
This combination's heavenly
But don't forget that you promised me
Everything
Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do
Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do

gods



You're allowed to believe in a god. You're allowed to believe unicorns live in your shoes, for all I care. But the day you start telling me how to wear my shoes, so I don't upset the unicorns, I have a problem with you. The day you start involving the unicorns in making decisions for this country, I have a BIG problem with you.

Por lo que a mí concierne, puedes creer en un dios, puedes creer que los unicornios viven en tus zapatos. Pero el día que empieces a decirme cómo usar mis zapatos, para que no moleste a los unicornios, tendré un problema contigo. El día que empieces a involucrar a los unicornios en la toma de decisiones para este país, tendré un GRAN problema contigo.

Feudalia Über Alles



Uno de mis problemas con las naciones y fronteras creo que podría resumirlo así: hay gente con la que comparto valores morales pero no nacionalidad y hay gente con la que comparto nacionalidad pero no valores morales. Si los humanos tenemos que separarnos, me jode que sea tan arbitrario.

One of my problems with nations and borders I think I could synthesize it this way: there are people with whom I share moral values but not nationality and there are people with whom I share nationality but not moral values. If we humans have to split up, it pisses me off that it's so arbitrary.

Gentle cynic


The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle who cynic cares not whether there is a God or not. The atheist is a religious person. He believes in atheism as though it were a new religion.

Lo opuesto del fanático religioso no es el ateo fanático, sino el gentil al que cínicamente no le importa si hay un Dios o no. El ateo es una persona religiosa. Cree en el ateísmo como si fuera una nueva religión.

- Eric Hoffer, 1951, The True Believer: Thoughts
