IF poem by Rudyard Kipling: spoken, interpreted & improved (pointless gender specificity removed)

Original

1 If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
2 If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
3 If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

Model citizen resume

INTRO: I shave and wear pants

OBJECTIVE: personal survival, via cultural validation

EXPERIENCE: sitting in rows and filling out forms to earn the chance at a job that I hate, to buy shit I don’t need, to impress people I don’t like

SKILLS: shaving, wearing pants, standing straight, sitting straighter, obeying, compartmentalizing

HOBBIES: recovering

All else is dreaming to reclaim equilibrium – while pulling the knot of dis-ease by both ends, in opposite directions.

Free Lunch, for the specialized test-products

focus-group

With so much marketed as “free” these days, it remains useful to remember:

  1. nothing is free
  2. everything costs (at least time, which is the most valuable commodity in existence)
  3. whenever a product is marked as free, then
    1. you are the test-product,
    2. your usage is measured,
    3. you priorities serve as a valuable study for those who hope to predict the future, by predicting (and, at times, adjusting) the priorities of a larger population.

student_groupFor the above reasons, I am never surprised when a specialized test-product happens upon some information I’ve provided, and they reflexively give me their livid, limp, feedback:

  1. it’s the only training they ever received in how to examine and address information:
    1. do you like It or not?
    2. why?
    3. what simplistic, self-absorbed, invariably inane advice would you give to make It more enjoyable to you (ie for It to accord more with your socially engineered preferences)?
  2. all but their entire sense-of-self requires that they compulsively voice their livid, limp, simplistic, self-absorbed, invariably inane,  socially engineered preferences: it’s how they know that they
    1. are alive
    2. matter
  3. they’ve been trained to crave ‘mattering’ — to crave validation — more than food, water, or even air.

Free Lunch! remains an immensely effective strategy for marketing,  to people, their participation in experiments; and is one of the reasons why so many people have become so stunningly boring and stupid.

Conscience, the ultimate consequence

Conscience, the ultimate consequence

Conscience, the final consequence,
of survival, the ultimate need;
amiable ambivalence, a priceless commodity,
when the end threatens the means.

Hamas introduces Palestinian Lives Matter

Hamas introduces Palestinian Lives Matter

“Trayvon Muhammad will go down in degenerate history as one of the best Palestinian braggers of allah time!!!” -some crazy arab

“Rocket Launchers up! Don’t Shoot!” -title of the newest hit hypocritical bullshit out of Pallywood.

Palestinian hip-hop group S.N.W.A. (Sand Niggas Wit Allahtude) pictured in a rap video for their hit new hoax ‘RUDS’ (big dick slang for “Rocket Launchers Up, Don’t Shoot), a protest song by Palestinian political-toddlers who say ‘zionist devils’ do not give poor pal pal dindus enough peaceful warnings about firing rockets at Israeli civilians.

Asked if Palestinian Lies Matter could catch fire like Black Lies Matter, or like the black-owned businesses in Baltimore that Black Lies Matter torched to protest the death of black drug dealer Freddie Gray while in the custody of black cops, in a city with a black mayor, a black police chief, and a mostly-black city council, the Palestinian hip-hop group said, ”we can only pray that our imaginary monster, Allah, grant us the blessing of being as mindlessly hypocritical as the ignorant, arrogant, ethically-retarded frauds of Black Lies Matter!”

Feminism as an extension of unprincipled patriarchy (example: Ben Shapiro vs Donald Trump on abortion)

Among patriarchy’s most powerful methods is to give a woman license for licentiousness, in order to destabilize her, mentally and emotionally, then provide her protection from each and every predictable consequence of her corrupt character; such protection is a Trojan Horse to trap her into patriarchy’s complete control: provide her superior response-ability; permit her inferior account-ability; and no accountability at all, to anyone but her monolithic stepdad: the State.
