A hundred dollars for every namibian, regardless of wealthy or poor the person might be? that's the most annoying sarcasm i've ever heard, and when i enquired, i was told its wasnt sarcasm, but it was in fact serious..Seriously? what the hell are you smoking?
A collective know as big came up with a proposal, to give every namibian a hundred dollar bill, which would apparently sustain them during trying times (hunger,being broke..among other things). Apart from the humorous scathing comments made by the president a few weeks ago about this issue, i have some comments of my own and why i think it's ridiculous how this whole thing was la-d out in the beginning.
What this "BIG" collective were supporse to focus at on their blueprint was to look at salary scales of people in the country and those who are considered disadvanted as priority number one, similar to the welfare grants/food stamps that have worked for countries like the united states, instead of giving 100 dollar bills to the so-called "fat cats" or already advantaged people who might not need the money.. this would eventually also help pensioners get reasonable grants monthly to sustain themselves in this ever rising inflation infested country..in history of politics a government is never to be too sympathetic to whoever cries "gimme sympathy" it's a sign of weakness..because at the end of the day, if these individuals turn out to be crying wolf, the government loses millions of dollars (look at what happened to Zimbabwe when land was given to dudes who have no clue about farming). So it's not to say that it's not a good idea, but to me it seemed more like an idea which was still in a brainstorming phase..so it's back to the drawing board for "BIG!"

nudity in films, is just an attempt by filmmakers to get the audience talking. and talking in this case brings about more interest from people who havent seen the said films, and this makes the movie somewhat a success finacially, even if it was initially panned by critics.
what is interesting though is the fact that nudity in film is mainly targeting hot-blooded teens past puberty, giving them a film they could help themselves to, choking the bishop when no one's looking. By this i mean, nudity in films almost always portray girls, barenaked and..while dudes are normally fully clothed, or just got their vests off. and what's our excuse? we are celebrating the beauty of women bodies..seriously..

[on the airport announcements]
"About this time, someone is telling you to get on the plane. "Get on the plane. Get on the plane." I say, "fuck you, I'm getting IN the plane! IN the plane! Let Evil Knievel get ON the plane! I'll be in here with you folks in uniform! There seems to be less WIND in here!"-George Carlin (taken from Jammin in NY)

It happens wherever you go, "homeground advantage" we call it. when you are in your hometown the love you get is astounding, from the love you get from everybody around, people you havent seen in a while. It's almost paradise. even in soccer, look at the love manchester gets in old trafford..you will notice certain individuals, who are desperate to go back to their hometowns, because thats their utopia, where they are confident and well respected, and they can rant about their imaginary success "in the big city" . you will notice that these characters, avoid persons who know them well, and every once in a while when they meet the latter, it's often hilarious the way they react..Kind of reminds me of the series LOST where there's a character named "Locke" who's like a commando on the island where they are lost at. But when he hears that there could be a submarine to rescue them from the island, he panics and blows up the sub. he doesnt wanna go back to the real world..hilarious!!!
It's all good and fun, but the trick is to get out before the chips are down, it's good to get out while it's still nice, so that you have an excuse to come back again...come to think of it..i havent been there in a while, i gotta go pack my bags and go see my hometown..

Being dissapointed by someone takes a long time for you to heal, especially if you trusted that person so much, and at the end of the day, you are the one to look like an idiot. It's sad because what makes the whole thing so unfair is that, you become paranoid, and it's gonna take time for you to really trust anyone again, you might get close to someone as far as friendship is concerned, but as soon as you get too close you end up distancing yourself, because you dont wanna see yourself in that situation you had earlier.
Dissapointments come in different circumstances, it could be heartbreak..it could be rape..friendship..etc. you start thinking of the humiliation, shame, and. your heart could tell you to get out there and mingle, but you just aint sure that you are ready yet..it's as if you are still in repair..you aint together, but you are getting there..
