message to the scottish citizens: vote NO

braveheart

i have been born in a country which included of six states, three languages, and three religions.

through my life this country has disintegrated into eight countries.

they are all countries with a single dominant nationality and religion – nation states.

i doubt that any of these new countries are better off than being together.

the worst thing about such divisions is that 20 or more million citizens of these countries believe that this is awesome.

homogeneous and boring, all proud of their national dishes and natural riches (mountains, beaches, rivers etc), and all hiding debts which pay for that nationalism.

innovation is reduced to divide and conquer, without anything useful ever coming out, reducing everybody to a worker / consumer class.

 

what i have learned is following:

– nation states are proven to be ridiculous and useless already centuries ago. creating one in 21st century is same as riding a horse instead of driving a car.

– nationalism is always a form of demagogy used by wannabes who want to use the lower class. if you find proof otherwise please email me.

– countries which learned to retain and grow their integrity like italy, united states, united kingdom, and south africa, are able to be innovative and improve.

– if you can not learn to solve problems within united kingdom, how can you solve problems within scotland.

– dividing does not really stop where you think it will stop. it has a tendency to go way beyond the expected comfort zone of those who started it.

 

i hope united kingdom keeps its intengiry.

from all the stuff the british empire has brought to our history (good and bad), the best is a lesson that we must mix and work together.

vote NO.

apple watch is not water proof

yes, it is true – apple watch is NOT water proof.

good luck with your fitness activities with a watch that breaks under heavy rain, sweat, or while drinking and moving.

i have NEVER EVER had a watch which is NOT water proof.

i was not even aware such things existed.

maybe in 1800s.

not water proof watch is like a car which does not go faster than 20 kmh only.

or like an airplane which can fly 300 meters only.

a not water proof watch!

seriously?!?!

i have a problem – i can not tell brands apart

i have a problem   i can not tell brands apart

i have a serious problem.

i can not tell brands apart.

i was always fearing this moment, and it finally came.

the horror!

benetton, apple, nike, hm, burton, and bmw look the same.

its same imagery, same values, same feeling, same politness.

i am begging someone to be different and smack me, be rude to me, do anything…

i need to feel something other than the generic look of almost every major global brand.

managers polished up this generic look to the point where it has no flaws, apart that it is everything.

it is the essence of what everybody want, but actually have no interest in.

it is the first version of matrix – the paradise version which did not work out.

i need brands to be different, dirty, strange, awkward.

please, i need to define myself somehow, and i need brands for it.

if all brands look the same then i am same as everybody and everything.

the horror!

ps:


ironman copenhagen 2014 impressions

clemente alonso ironman copenhagen 2014

this is 5th time i was watching ironman copenhagen (previously challenge copenhagen).

i guess i am their biggest fan, as i traveled five times to copenhagen only to see the race.

ironman copenhagen is better each year.

we were lucky to meet clemente alonso-mckernan and spent time with him the days before.

we cheered for him together with his girlfriend nayra.

cheering for someone makes the ironman spectating so much richer.

i definitely suggest watching ironman copenhagen as a way to experience this city.
