Silence, disorder, isolation, and humanity

January 16, 2011


Sitting in the train station waiting room. The people here are quiet, they read or listen to music. Each in their own bubble. It makes me think of the tension between the private/personal sphere – that protects the individuals’ right to be without being bothered by others actions, and the noise and disruption required by […]

It can be considered that there is a strong relation between the changing age makeup of the population in the 20th century  and the of the post WWII era. First the baby boom – a sudden jump in population. Of course this alone is not enough. This generation was born into a new world order, […]

A source of energy more potent than bullshit

March 16, 2010


An great idea occurred to me to still the renewable energy naysayers: Why not use Racial Hatred as a source of fuel? Its incendiary nature would give it an energy content of approximately 30 MJ/L, more than the energy content of unrefined bullshit.

A touch of madness [old material]
