Title:
Just a thread missing here abiout whatever silly, narrowminded, self-righteous, broad or intellectual feelings about a point in your life or some stupid game or good feeling gone bad.

I am a nice man (everywhere, except here, hehe), I've got nice real friends, I've got very good relations with my parents, I've got the best girlfriend in the world, we talk every day, a month ago we were on vacation together and yesterday we had sex online, but I still can't be happy, because I have got a rotten state on my back constantly making silly rules and requirements to mess up my life. I feel like I am enslaved by the system. I am just not rich enough to be on the top of the system. I don't know and care enough about the law and mechanics of the system to exploit it and neither do I desire that and for that I feel like I am getting raped. I am just not anal-retentive enough to fight a system full of people that are. I wokld like to think that these laws and systems exists for my sake too that they are meant to be a service for me too, it's just one fucking big disservice and pestilence.

On top of that I am paying an extra toll because a few arseholes raped and abused the system and some fucking politicians decided to make the masses pay for the abuse of a few. How the hell is it fair that I am punished for someone else misdeed.

So.. my girlfriend and I could be the most happy couple in the world, but we live apart, because she happen to live in a country in Europe, which is outside the European Union and for that I have to pay an extra price of 100.000 DKK and all the cost for her required migration into the state.. a lot more. And I wonder what the hell am I paying tax for and why I even live here?

I get nothing for that tax I pay.. I don't even get a return for not having kids.. I pay to make everyone else even and free. I pay so other parents can keep sending their kids to the kindergarden and school, I pay for their dental work and I pay to keep up free medical services, I pay for everyone else except me.. and when I need something I have to pay an extra price for it.. and I am not rich to do that. I am not an expense to the state, but pure profit for them.. and I am too nice.

If only I could go somewhere to be free of all these rules, regulations, laws and thumbing of my 'so-called' human rights.. But there is nowhere I can go. The whole planet is like this and if there is a spot that is free somewhere I am sure that I can't afford to go there, because I am made to pay to keep me here.

I should have paid more attention in school.. If only I had been cloned from a model student. Never singled out for being too tall or too loud or too distracted. If only I had stern, cold, oppressive and over stimulating parents with high ambitions on my behalf that could have turned me into the selfish and material kind that make lots of money.. Making me write symphonies or economical manifest at the age of three. I should have been born a king or royalty with a fat heritage, because I suck at making money. I am just too selfless. If only I could have lived in post-apocalyptic fallout world. Shooting and looting and helping damsels in distress.. But no, I had nice, forgiving and democratic parents in a world moving towards a modern and democratic way of life that let me be play too much in kindergarden and let me forget about making an effort in school.. The first two years in school I thought I was still in kindergarden and I got away with it, because my parents insisted on letting me play. That sucks. I AM DOOMED.

I HATE SOMETHING!!!

I hate most, if not all governments. There's no such thing as "by the people, for the people" or any other such sentiments. Governments are about power and control and screwing the masses so the few get the goodies.

And the laws they pass... I just learned that in the USA, if you're caught peeing in public, that gets you the "sex offender" classification. Seriously WHAT THE fudge!?!

Peeing in public, the edge of a parking lot, in an alley, etc, because there are no public loos, you can't hold it til you get home, etc, etc, etc, gets you labelled as a sex offender?

I'd really love to see a revolution in Canada but then again, what's the point. Whatever replaces our current crap system would be just as bad.

7 billion people on this planet and you sure can't please everyone.

Move to Sweden. Malmö or Helsingborg is more or less suburb to their danish neighbour opposite side of the "lake".

Hey, you could always move to your girlfriends country. Forget about rules and regulations, as it is ruled by powerful men and shady organisations rather than goverments :cool:

I hear the country is positively glowing (from nuclear fallout), so it might be worth going there.

Alternatively, you could go to Australia. The mining industry is still booming for those who likes living in "the wild west". Bring your own gun and anti-venom.

I hate hyprocisy. That means most politicians. A few young ones may still be idealists, but eventually they all sell out and become part of the game, using the same rhetoric, the same poo flinging and the same (rather predictable) evasive maneuvres when questioned.

Local politics here is a prime example of how it works (in countries where politicians don't have armed militias), during the last election campaign, not a single politicians ever stood up and explained how *they* would "fix" something. 100% screen time was used on telling how the other guys sucked and how they themselves were going to do their best to stop them (the other guys) from destroying the country. I can understand why voting is mandatory.

All the young politicans in Sweden are left wing nutjobs.

No one really cares for the nation as it is anymore. The left yaps about revolution and the right just want to lower the taxes. Great idealist? No. Egoistic idiots? Yes.

Most focus in Sweden right now is to call everything right wing extremism, call Swedish democrats for a shit party and talk about wolf hunting. All they bitch about. Yet they send a documentary that is pro Serbian about the genocide, holocaust of Bosnians in Bosnia...on state owned television. I guess Bosnian culture is not trendy to protect right now, to much European or something. Government pigs!

^ No clue either and I'm English/Scottish descent and proud of it. In fact, I'd rather be British than Canadian but that's another story.

Hmm... my turn for ranting...

Sick of the lack of activity on the forums (nothing new there but haven't ranted for a couple weeks about it). Sick of trying to publish a quarterly ezine and make something positive of it when I'm lucky if it comes out 2-3 times a year (bitched about that before too but some things just don't change no matter how much you try).

Oh yeah, and I'm sick of not being able to sleep. 3-4 hours a night IF I'm lucky. Oh, and maybe, MAYBE I can get a wee little nap in here and there but I would give almost anything for 6-8 hours a night, every night. Sick of the headaches, the lack of energy and the mental "to do" lists I make that I just don't have the energy to act on.

And it seems our router is dead. Well, maybe not all dead but mostly dead. Keeps dropping the connection. Right bloody annoying, that. It's down more than up the past couple weeks. If it isn't one thing, it's another. I need someone to blame so... I blame Gorth.

I am sick of hearing Joseph saying that he's sick of the lack of activity on the forums.. :wink:

- Not really. :P I can explain my part.

I am obligated to write 5 applications per month, 20 so far, but I have only made 3 and they were not really real applications, because..

I can't figure out how to write a job application to satisfy my level of perfectionism. It has taken me at least two weeks to make a CV to encapsulate all those skills that don't really go into boxes, because I picked them up partially in line of work and interest. Everytime I try to write the personal application it ends up becoming a fat novel about my frustrated working life and all the work arounds I have done to compensate for the total lack of peace of mind and time to do it right.. and then there is the part about only emphasing, accentuating and basically lie yourself better about qualifications that makes me sick to my stomach. I just can't do that self-asserting, self-glorifying political smugness.. and it all falls apart as I read the job postings and thousands of methods and technologies I know I should know about. I've been stretched too thin for too long. Fucking hell. On the other hand I don't want to rush it, because there are not that many places to work and doing it wrong could severely backfire on me.

I think I am trying to make a generic recyclable apart of my personal application, but looking at example applications and business advice I just get the feeling that I am supposed to make a completely personalized application for each job... and considering the time I have spent so far not being able to really make one.. Phew.

So.. I finally found a company that looks just right and the company is near by, but they are both quite full of themselves and full of requirements and I have been checking up on their solutions and while they all look reasonably great, they are all very technically weak and the more I scratch the surface I wonder just what part of those big words were actually their own work and I just wonder.. wtf is that about. They know about pedantrics, but they suck at programming.. I know I can't write that, but.. geesus.. I hate this.

I need a lot of escapism to get a break from this. So I am watching Bones again. On the Season 5 DVD's they've done something horrible to the chapter indexes.. they are completely missing. They only way to play a show is to do it from the beginning. I've watched the same episode twice now as it sort of ran in the background and I've missed the solution twice now..

My own feeling of inadequacy from making a CV and job application doens't need anymore fuel, especially not from a half-arsed DVD setup.. Can't even select subtitles from the Player menu itself, but I have to do it through the DVD menu and no chapters to skip.. This is really annoying. Everything sucks.

I guess sleep deprivation goes all around. Now it's 3.33 A.M. and I am tired as hell, because I have been late to bed every night since.. and I always try to get up really early to continue, but I fail and wake up tired with only a few hours more than way too little.. And I just have this feeling that I haven't really relaxed as much as that amount today that I feel I should so I can't even make myself go to bed, because I try to do it all.. There are just too few hours on the clock and I hate the biloogical clock too.. Sleeping, eating.. Everything trivial bores me.

And I'm sick of the lack of activity that leads me to saying it. ;)

So we got a new router. The connection is nice and stable. However the speed is lousy. Really lousy. Methinks it needs to go back to the store in exchange for a better one.

And I just discovered that, according to the spell check built in to FF that "methinks" is a legitimate word. Interesting, that. I'd always assumed it was slang.

You are indeed a mean man, Gorth.

As for CVs... I recently went to see an employment counsellor about tweaking mine. Apparently the format that I've been using for the past 10-15 years, just updating as jobs/employers changed, isn't a good one any more. Also, apparently, honestly isn't in vogue either.

I finally nailed it, but it's very hard to let go of nittpicking details and.. Now I just decided that it's take it or leave it. Only bad side is that the end result is about 4 pages longer than my most colourful and minimalistic one.

I've used a model referred to as the Europass Curriculum Vitae and with a nice picture and some background shading it looks quite reasonable.
