The human race is doomed (thank goodness!)

Fighting and killing each other over differences of religious belief - sometimes over the same God, or a different interpretation of same holy scripture.

Fighting and killing each other over differences of political belief - or over the same political belief.

Fighting and killing each other over differences of skin colour, culture, sexuality, gender, nationality.

6 men owning more wealth between them than the 4,000,000,000 poorest people on earth.

Countries starving whilst rich individuals send a sports car into space, or spend £5,000,000 on a wedding party, or £100,000,000 on another yacht.

Obsessions with trivia, nonsense, junk - including gross stupidity like this...

Birdbox Challenge Warnings Issued

I say blindfold them and line them up on cliff edges, or beside busy highways.

A Martian Sends Another Postcard Home

Sonys are electronic flightless birds
and most are treasured for their call

they cause the eyes to distract
and the brain to soften

I have only seen them fly when dead -
mostly they perch on the hand
or beside the head.

Humans shout at them and poke them.
They do it all the time.

It's the only thing they do.

They'll be a pushover.

Bring on the alien invasion.  Obliterate us.

Happy 2019.

  • I find it interesting that you equate wealth with money and the Western consumer model. This seems to be a Western socialist guilt trip to punish themselves based on their greed & envy model..

    Just because people have lots of money, doesn't mean they are free. Most 'rich' people are forced to live in guilded cages where they cannot venture out into the real world. They have no real friends and have to be suspicious of everyone around them's motives as most are looking for a quick pay-day.

    Can Victoria Beckham go to the local shops in onesie to get a pint of milk without someone taking a picture? The publicity would destroy her brand value. She is forced to be +/- 1lb in weight, have perfect make-up never look happy. Some existence.

    I would suggest there are millions of complely happy, satisfied people living in freedom with very little money.
