Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

There’s something about Macro photography that makes me love it more and more.

There’s also something about the 2″ screen not showing enough detail that annoys me to bits.

 

 

 

On the topic of Alien life. The first sentence is the most pessimistic quote I’ve seen in a while… save Sandman, that thing is full of horridness.

Especially this one: Have you even been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life… and you give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like “maybe we should just be friends” or “how very perceptive” turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

But really, humans may be ‘superior’, ‘show more potential’ and whatever else was thrown around in that poor excuse for a debate (it’s still fun though), but we’re pretty damned dumb.

Look at history. It repeats itself. Wasn’t the goal of history to record events in time and to learn from them so things don’t happen again?

Classic example: World War I and World War II. They weren’t even that far apart from each other. Did people not realize after the first thousands of deaths that another one would be stupid? Though WWII was caused the wantings of certain people. But wars in general are a great example. Things that don’t have to happen, happen.

It’s like we know that taking notes on WWII won’t change much, arguing your side in a debate won’t matter, and surely creating clubs is not going to help.

If I don’t know I don’t know, I think I know; if I don’t know I know, I think I don’t know.

I don’t know, I just thought it would fit in the context. (not going to explain)

I’m such a pessimist.
