u24 "everything is fucked, everybody sucks"


ah fuck it. this entire species is fucking crap. we suck so badly at everything. I'm not even just talking about the massive fuckups that we all feel safely bad about because we couldn't have done anything about them. I'm talking about the fact that YOU and ME are sitting there with double fucking glazing and carpets and three meals a day when pretty much every other fucker is dying and starving. Glossy fucking magazines and pencil pots and executive pens and jewellery. Do you know how much difference the rings on my finger would make to a starving family in Bangladesh? Do I know? Do I even care? What a fucking bastard.

We're such fucks.

auburn You're saying that we are supposed to find meaning in our possessions?


Give me starvation. Wake me up.

auburn But you're right though. Our starvation is limited. And our thoughts about others too.


But I don't want 'neglect' to be another word on the list of reasons why I'm not good enough to be here.

. *I didn't mean to write starvation.

I meant our suffering.

u24 "meaning in our possessions?"

no. value! My rings alone could probably buy a week's food. Or 50 malaria vaccinations. I'm wearing dead children on my fingers.
How about my pretty 19 inch LCD monitor? How many people could that save?

We (I) look at "rich people" and forget just how rich I am. I can eat whenever I want, whatever I want. I have a cosy office job. I do not fear being shot for my colour or beliefs. I do not have to work in dangerous environments to feed my family. I have an education. My life is rich beyond imagination for some.

Lemon_Soda What comes too easily we esteem too lightly and familiarity breeds contempt.


Your comments remind me of Oscar Schindler. That fuck. He could've saved so many MORE...


(you know that was sarcasm about schindler, right?)

u24 yes, I recognised a bit of Schindler in what I said as I wrote it. That's what I'm talking about. He was consumed by it as we all should be. But it was all around him, everywhere. With us it's so far off...

I don't know. I really don't.
