I want to go to the farm I work at late one night, go to the middle of a field, pull out some of whatever grows there and plant something else, just to see the look on my coworkers faces when they pull out something that could not possible be growing there naturally.


Stuff I've considered planting so far:
a pineapple
a bag of pig snouts
a puppy
a swordfish
27 mannequin arms
I'm bored waiting for Oscar to get home from work so I drew a picture of my dog after a bath.



Also. This reminds me of where I used to be. And where I want to go again.

I hope some day I can scrape up enough oompfh to do it again.

Really disappointed in everything around my thesis for the societal security-program. First of all I got a supervisor who is not in the same field as the one I'm writing about. I'm writing about risk psychology. My supervisor is in political science. I have recieved no valuable feedback what so ever, and two days before the deadline, he tells me to "expand my analysis". It's 27 pages long, I'd like to know exactly what the fuck needs expanding. He's been incredibly vague the whole time, asks the same question three times in three different emails, and now he pretty much fucks up my chances of turning in my entire paper on time. I pretty much told him to suck it and turned it in anyway, but I don't know if I can even do that.

Also, none of my group members are going to be there, which really sucks cause I had looked forward to seeing them again. Z and I had been talking about riding his motorbike up to Karlstad and we were all gonna celebrate together afterwards. Now I'll just never see them again and I didn't even get to say a proper goodbye.

Plus this means I can't hitch a ride with Z or sleep at M:s place, which means I have to pay shittons of money I don't have on trains and hostel. I don't even know if I CAN go. And if I don't, that's a year's worth of stress and effort and money down the drain.

When it's windy, like it was today, you get pretty tired working in a huge ass field of dirt. And covered in soil, obviously. You go home and shower, the bathroom floor is black. You clean your ears, they're black inside. You blow your nose, what comes out of your nostrils is the earth itself. Or atleast a pretty good portion of it.

Also, I bought new shampoo. In the bottle, it smelled like earl gray tea. In my hair, it smelled like the carcass of a rhino wearing a crown of seaweed. Not bad.

HAHA

So I'm researching stuff for my paper, and run into this sentence:

"Kaiser and Fuhrer (2003), similarly suggested that declarative knowledge alone regarding the environment has limited impact on environmental behaviour."

And all I can think is KAISER AND FUHRER HAAAAAAA!@#! What are the odds that those guys not only meet but write a fucking book together? Have they thought about how hilarious their names are, especially put together? Is that perhaps the very reason they decided to write a book together at all? I'm going to be thinking about this all day.

hypocracy - it's faaaantastic

So, they got bin Ladin. At last eh. I hate to tell you this, but life is not a fucking videogame. "Terrorism" will not vaporize because you think you've killed the final boss. Especially not when you do it through, you know, acts of terrorism.
State terrorism is worse than any other form of terrorism by the way, in case you didn't get that, and that's becoming quite the habit in the home of the brave.
Let me ask you something. What kind of message do you think you're sending when you pour troops into a country in the name of democracy and justice, only to flout the same principles whenever it's convenient?

Funny how that works.

It's also funny that if a middle easterner celebrates someone's death, they're uncivilized, crazy and scary barbarians. If an American does it, it's justified and positive.

Israel kidnapped Adolf Eichmann, a man who played a key role in Die Endlösung der Judenfrage during WW II. He was responsible for the death of 440 000 people.
Israel has done a lot of nasty shit, but they did give that guy a trial.

Saddam Hussein got a trial. The people who worked for Pol Pot, responsible for the death of approximately 1,7 million people, got trials. This was in Cambodia.

The leaders of former Yugoslavia and Rwanda were taken to ICC. Got trials.

Bin Ladin was murdered during a commando raid in a sovereign state's territory, without the state's (official) consent or knowledge. And then his death is celebrated by millions and he is mocked in news media around the world.

I sort of get it, considering the guy clearly was way smarter than any of the Americans who were after him. That must be pretty aggravating when you're used to getting everything you want the way you want. Despite their money, technology and advanced weapons and training bin Ladin got away again and again and again. His assets were frozen, he was hunted by half the planet for over a decade, and yet he outsmarted the most powerful nations in the world over and over. Even when they decided to break every law they could think of to get him. I can see how that would piss them off. And if Obama hadn't started acting like an asshole cowboy it would've been political suicide I guess, so I kind of understand that too, even if I find it disappointing and downright pathetic to sink to the level where you claim to have brought justice when you're really no better than the guy you just offed.

But I guess exaggerated celebration is what it takes to forget that he was smarter than you, and that you have killed many, many more innocents than he ever could have, in the process of hunting him down. You're not really convincing anyone else of your bravery and superiority though.

Weekend of awesomeness. Went to work saturday morning. The farmer-creature I worked for last year called and asked if I wanted to make some cash money, and I can't say no to cash money regardless of how much schoolin' I got, so I said yes, and it was fun. Hard and dirty, but fun. I only worked for a couple of hours but I've got more coming this summer. After that I took my dog to her favourite creek and let her swim for a while, then went to Oscar's. We walked down to the beach from his house and spent the afternoon and evening having a Barbecue Of Awesome.

Today it was raining so we stayed in and watched anime. Highschool of the Dead is hilarious. Anything where bullets fly in slow motion between bouncing boobies is hilarious, and there is plenty of that in HOTD. We also went to Helsingborg to see Thor (the movie, not my acquaintance from Stockholm), which was, eh, pretty bad. Better than Avatar, since everything is better than Avatar, but still pretty crappy. The only real upside to it was Loke, cause he the only interesting character (and also the actor was fucking hot). The popcorn also sucked.
