  1. On the edge of the abyss

    On the edge of the abyss.

    Haven't we all been there at some points in our lives? I once heard someone say "The only way to escape an incoming wave is to ride it till it quits down." but what if you simply can't wait until the waive loses it's power? What if you simply cannot muster the power anymore to remain afloat and fantasize about simply letting go? Frankly this question has been occupying my mind a lot lately.

Unfortunately, nowadays it's impossible to have a 100% bio product, even if it's home made.

  5. The Dude goes into politics! - The Ugly Beast


    Part 4 - The Grim Reality.

    Truth be told, I was not really sure if to post about this or not, because the topic is incredibly boring, to me at the least: bureaucracy.

    Have you ever had a nightmare, where a black indefinite monster pursue you till you cannot escape it and you eventually wake up screaming? Well, that's what bureaucracy is to me: a ugly ...
