One Giant Leap For One Man.

I have been a way a while, if anyone is reading this I congratulate you on getting this far. If anyone is reading this with a sense of nostalgia, I congratulate you further.

As few of you will be aware, I posted for some time and it all came to a stop rather abruptly, 2 years have passed since my last post and a lot has changed in that time.

Facebook took over the world, the man who created the iPhone died and almost every advertisement on television is accompanied by the terrible sound of what I hear is called "Dubstep". Today, a lot has changed, V is back. I am back and I have changed, matured and more cynical than ever. The world is a bitter place, wars that started have since ended, powerful people have died and I have spectated from the side lines. Today, change continues.

I come to you today with a different approach. We're starting things off with a positive post about humanity. Today something fantastic happened. A man, Felix Baumgartner, rode a helium balloon 128,000 feet up in to the stratosphere and then jumped. He fell those 128,000 feet in less than 10 minutes. Years of research and money for 10 enthralling minutes. A human being jumped from the edge of space and lived to tell the tale.

Whilst this in itself amazes me, we also live in a world where people were able to watch it live on their mobile phones on the commute home from work, a world where anyone with access to the internet could Tweet their thoughts and emotions as it unfolded. I myself was sat with bated breath as he stepped out on to his relatively tiny platform. The human race came together for little over 2 hours to watch a single man fall through the sky. Many "trolls" as they've come to be called sat and mocked but the majority of people, the majority of the world watched in awe as this single, brave man did what others can only dream of. Saw what others could only dream of seeing. All in the name of record breaking.

As a species we have stopped evolving to suit the world, we now evolve the world to suit us. Whilst we've stopped evolving we haven't stopped excelling. Humans are constantly excelling, never to be bested. I pray this mentality never stops. Whether it's finding the Higgs boson or creating a new piece of life saving technology, we excel. Whether it be for science or for personal gain, we excel.

Keep excelling planet Earth. You made a cynical man proud today.

Seasons Greetings, Atleast it feels like Christmas.

Recently as I'm sure most of you are aware, the recent Postal Strikes have caused alot of problems for alot of people, not only do I think the Royal Mail have no real grounds to base these strikes on, I also think it is an incredibly selfish thing to do. The main reasons for the strikes are pay issues, working hours and modernisation. Now I'm almost certain that nearly every business in the entire country, and every employee of all those businesses has one or more of these issues but do they throw their toys out of the pram? No, they continue working because they know it's happening to everyone.

As the media will lead you to believe we are in a recession, to which I can only say is "Scaremongering" at it's best by your Government to make you buy more useless tat to stop them rising Taxes even more, So with all these banks and businesses going under as it were why do the Royal Mail decided to strike now? Especially in the loathsome Christmas period.
It angers me to no end to think that more companies and small shops are going bankrupt and the owners are not able to live sufficiently purely based on not getting the deliveries they need, and all thanks to the Royal Mail. Personally I think they have shot themselves in the foot, the more they strike, the more money they loose and the more likely they are to fail as a business therefore leading to all of its employees losing their jobs.

I mentioned Christmas, yes it's that time of year again, although the Christmas period seems to be growing longer and longer, I'm pretty sure shops will be selling you rubbish for Christmas in June soon.
Christmas become as commercialised as Christianity itself and the entire Festive season is becoming less and less about family and more about how much money you spend on said family. Spend too much, they'll complain at you, spend too little and they'll be thinking it. The only thing I can truly look forward to at this time of year is the end of it. Yet another year has passed, is it me or is the human race slowing down to a stand still? What happened to us advancing our technologies? We've become victims of our own inventions.

Roll on 2010.

"Just a short one"

Aah July... along with June and August, probably my most favoured months, you see, I am a sucker for Festivals.

Glastonbury, such a small town, but for 3 days of the year, a hundred thousand people flock there to get covered in mud, mugged and inebriated, all to the sound of popular music.

This fascinates me, the atmosphere these festivals have is just purely electrifying, such an euphoric feeling pulsates throughout the fields and it's all down to one thing. People.

Granted the music exacerbates the mood, but when you delve into what really gives festivals their wondrous buzz, it's the vast amount of people all looking for the same thing. A good time.

Personally I am especially looking forward to the aptly named V festival but that's another matter.

With August comes autumn. my favourite time of year for photography I'll be starting a little competition as it were around then, be sure to look out for it.

That is, if I ever get around to it!

Until then readers;

"Semper Fidelis"

It is my pleasure to make your acquaintance, to all the first time viewers out there anyway.

I am well aware that my fanbase - if any - is made up of a very small few, dedicated fellow bloggers, that share similar views to my own.

Well now that it is spring I have decided to rise out of hibernation and bask in the light that is reflection on the last few months, some fascinating things have happened.

This will be in no order might I add, I often tire of writing and delete entire blogs before publishing them, hence the lack of entries for months.

I would like to start with the collapse of something close to many Britons (read: Chavs) Woolworths announced losses a while back, in my eyes this is because the influx of burberry clad gypsies stealing from all the stores around the country. No, what I really believe is that retail super giants such as Tesco, infact just Tesco, are having a detrimental effect on the nations economy, I implore all readers to get out there, on your local high streets and buy from the butchers, and grocers, and whatever else you have to, because smaller shops are closing faster than ever before.

This moves me nicely onto my next topic, the economy - what's left of it anyway - Money money money, money makes the world go around. Unfortunately it does, to paraphrase Northerners "You don' get out for nout" I'm not even sure how one would begin to spell that correctly, so I apologise.

I digress, Tony Blair was one of the worst things to happen to this country, so when he stepped down at the feeble age of 107 Gordon Brown stepped up, now just for those who didn't know, Brown was pretty much in charge of the country's money before he became Prime Minister, It was Brown that ruined the Banks, and now it is up to him to save them, which involves spending more money. Money we have to borrow off other countries. Money we can't afford to borrow.

This places us in a downward spiral of debt, and with extra money going into looking after an increasingly aging population it doesn't look like getting better anytime soon.

I have a plan to solve alot of this debt, think about all the people claiming benefits such as "Job seekers allowance" this practically pays lazy people to sit around and pretend they're struggling to find a job, If illegal immigrants can find a job without having a National Insurance number how can Legal citizens not find a job? the country has become too soft.

So my plan is to force everybody on any of these benefits to actually get off their obese arses, and get a job, no matter what it is, they must be working, so that they can be taxed, now we all hate taxes, but without them the country would be in even more of a state. So don't complain.

Now, something bugged me no end next;

She first forced herself down the nations necks in Big Brother, after losing she gained public appreciation for getting her disgusting body out whilst drunk and making various appearances in public, the usual "Getting out of a taxi with my crotch showing" photos where taken, and she went on to appear in Celebrity Big Brother, I use that word loosely, more loose than the woman in question, yes of course I mean Jade Goody.

Jade Goody suddenly became hated when she called a Hindu/Muslim/Sikh/Who really cares they're all just as wrong "Shilpa Poppadom" ( I know, it lacks imagination even for such an imbecile) Flags were burnt, Goody's career was over before it began.

But then!

She developed Cervical Cancer and milked it for all it was worth, claiming she wanted to put her kids through school, now is it just me or has cancer been around for a while before Jade Goody was even spawned? I thought as much, so why on Earth did she get so much media attention?

I have already commented on how the media is one thing I detest the most, and Jade Goody has made me hate it even more, why must a lower class woman become so popular and create such a revenue from dying? I understand that she didn't want her children to be as idiotic as she was, but did they really need millions of Pounds for education? I don't think they do, I believe it was exploitation at it's worst.

I am rather glad that we are rid of such a rodent from the surface of the Earth.

So as the clocks go forward, so does the year.

I Am Not Dead;

Hello readers, those of you who are left, I remember quite a while ago, saying that I would post on the day they turned on the LHC...

Since then, an Internet connection has been pretty much unavailable for me, that and getting in trouble aplenty over the Beijing Olympic protests, I haven't had much time for blogging, although with the new year safely being eaten into I have plenty of new ideas and queries.

Check back soon for a new blog, about something that was, once upon a time, close to mine, and many other Britons hearts.

I'll leave it for you to decide what that may be,
