Marijuana is Good

So I am not a druggy. I never will be.  Ever. So let’s just clear that up before the beginning of this article. I do, know people who have taken drugs, and do quite frequently. I do, yes, hang out with them occasionally. Still, however, I do not take them, and have no intentions to, ever. Not a puff, not a blow-back, nothing.

I have, however, occasionally had a cigarette. It would have been better for me to have had an entire spliff then that one cigarette. Really, it would have. This is what shocks me. The benefits of smoking marijuana out number the benefits of smoking tobacco almost ten-fold. So my question to all of you is, why is marijuana illegal, and tobacco is legal?

Marijuana can relax you, actually reduces the risk of cancer, and isn’t addictive. Tobacco on the other hand, makes you reak, increases your risk of cancer, and is highly addictive. I think this world is a bit messed up.

So tell me your opinions on this. Do you have a different opinion? Let me know, and comment, like and follow if you enjoyed the article!

Could You Ever Be A Cannibal? (And A Brief Talk About Animal Rights)

So I never said explicitly that children shouldn’t read my posts… but they just shouldn’t. Any of them, Especially this one though.

I heard a story a long time ago on The Late Night Show with Nick Margerrison on Kerrang! Radio. It was a tale of a man who was making an expedition in the Arctic I think. Anyway, as he was flying over this area, with no civilisation for miles and miles in either direction, the plane crashed. With him and very few survivors left in the wreckage, these people needed to survive, by any means.

They had no way of knowing in what direction the nearest inhabited building was, and all means of communication with someone had been destroyed, so they needed to wait for a rescue team to be sent out, which wouldn’t arrive for a couple of days.

As time progressed, there food supplies ran out, and they were forced to do the only thing possible to survive. Eat the deceased victims of the crash. They didn’t want to, but to survive, they had to. They managed to cook the meat somehow, so as to not poison themselves. As a result of this, however, they survived.

For those wondering, my post about this was of course influenced by the last few weeks disturbing The Walking Dead storyline, but I was wondering, would you do it? Would you resort to this extreme measures if your life was at steak?

I would, if it was cooked properly of course. I wouldn’t want to, but when it comes down to it, what is the difference between that and eating an animal? Both were alive and both feel pain, so how is this any different? As Morrisey says, Meat is Murder. Animals feels pain like we do. They live and breathe our own air. They feel, so why should we take there lives? If you want to see what really happens to these animals, search up slaughterhouse videos on the internet, I dare you.

Anyway, tell me, would you resort to cannibalism to stay alive? Thanks for reading, and remember to comment, like, and follow!

Why I Will Never Kill Myself

So people out there in the world have loads of things going on in there lives all of the time. You never know what someone is thinking, or what is going on behind the curtains. They may hold a strong public image, but in the background they are having serious issues merely staying alive.

Today we are going to discuss the different perspectives people seem to have of suicide, why people are pushed to this, and why I personally, will never kill myself.

First of all, people are pushed to the edge every day. As an example, an ex of mine had loads of stuff happen to her. We are talking rape, abuse, she was made homeless. All of this was going on, and some of it while I was with her as well. Now she wanted to kill herself. In all fairness it is understandable. However, she didn’t. I am genuinely surprised that she didn’t, but she didn’t, nonetheless. She was strong, and yet unfortunately everything she had got through had scarred her both physically and emotionally, and therefore, this was one of the reasons we didn’t work out in the end.

She got through all of that, and is still around today to tell the tale. How come she hasn’t killed herself, and yet people who have been through less have?

Well it comes down to loneliness, personal strength, and experience. Yes I said the word experience. This may sound weird, but hear me out. First of all, if you have friends, you can come through almost anything. Now I have no friends almost still to this day, and I have come out of everything I have been through, but that leads onto the second point. Personal strength. I am not going to lie, emotionally I am strong. Very strong. I haven’t been psychologically affected by what I have been through really. The only way it has had an impact on me is that I don’t trust people. Like, anyone. Ever. I just don’t trust anyone. That is probably the only thing that has happened as a result of my life. Some people are weaker then others. If you let things get to you easily, then they will affect you more, and you will let these problems take over your life, and you fear they will stay for the rest of your life. The final factor is experience. You need experience with life’s issues. You need to learn to always expect the worst in every situation. This is what I do. You also need to understand that things will get better. I know this from experience. Everyones life has good moments. If you are on a downer you need to always realize that a) there is someone out there who has it worse then you, and b) the future will get better. No matter what. I know this. I know that in the future, I will find myself a wife, we will have children, and I will be on a well paid job. Of course, I have no way of knowing this for certain, but I have hope. I also know that I won’t settle for anything else, and the sheer determination I hold inside me is enough of a drive to get me to my goal.

Of course, some people can’t see these things. I know because I have been in a situation of pure sadness, and you feel like the world will never change. However when your head clears, you start to see things clearly again. After I broke up with my fiancée  I felt terrible. I felt like my life had no meaning. Then time passes. You realize that it just wasn’t meant to be. You pick yourself, dust yourself off and move on. Why? Because the entire world isn’t a bad place. There is someone out there for you. You will  have better days. You will become happy again.

Now to go the second part of this article. Peoples opinions.

People have varying opinions on the subject of suicide. They both make sense in some lights. A lot of people think that suicide is selfish, and people shouldn’t take there lives when it will wreck other peoples as well. I understand this, and I can see where they are coming from. If someone is distraught, and feels terrible, and wants to take there life, of course they should think about everyone else, and what will happen to others if they take there own life, however, if someone is so unhappy in there life that they have that thought and are pushed to this point then is it really fair to expect them to stay alive just for other people?

Then there is my opinion, and most other peoples. If someone is having a terrible life, and they see no possible increase in happiness in even the distant future, I feel they have a right to end there own life. It is there’s to do with as they please. It is terrible if someone wants to do this of course, but if they are pushed to it, then it is there own choice.

On the other hand… let me talk for a moment about teen suicides. What utter bullshit! Now, there are legitimate cases out there of teens who really do have terrible lives. They really have had terrible things happen to them. Ok, I can understand them wanting to end there own lives. If, however, there is a 14 year old girl who is being bullied, and her parents don’t seem to care or whatever. First of all, talk to someone. Secondly, call the NSPCC if they really don’t care or if it is upsetting. Thirdly, wait it out. I was bullied. I got through it. I am still here. I haven’t even come close to my breaking point. Those kind of teen suicides I think are stupid. That isn’t enough of a reason. You haven’t even lived through the really difficult stuff in life. The stuff that really pushes you to the limits of what you can take. Of course, if you are going through more, then this is a real reason for you to want to kill yourself. If you are being abused, raped, or anything else, it is understandable. However if you are just being bullied a bit? No, this isn’t enough.

So I will never ever kill myself. I have hope for the future. I know my life will bring good things to me in time. No I don’t have faith, I don’t believe in a God. I don’t believe something will come and save me. I need to work for my happiness. All the stress I have been through and come out of is just life’s way of testing me. I will reap the rewards one day. Life can be a bitch, but you fight through it.

Everyone out there, stay strong, and have a good, positive day. Like, comment, follow, and do whatever else if you enjoyed this article.

Video Games. Good or Bad?

So everyone knows about Call of Duty. That game where you go and kill people and shoot up everything.  The youngsters thing it is cool whilst the elders think it encourages violence. I think however that in reality every normal person realises that really video games are in fact bad. You sit on your ass and twiddle your thumbs for hours, well how can that be good?

To begin, there are positives of gaming. First, there is the obvious advancement in your social life if you game online with friends. This of course, isn’t as good as actually going out and talking to people, but it is a step in the right direction. Then, there is the boost in hand-eye coordination. Whilst only a small benefit, it is still there, and it is still something.

In my opinion the number one reason people are so attracted to video games is because they are escapism. They are sort of like movies except they also pull the gamer into there world by making you feel like you have to work to advance the storyline. You feel like you have great control over he story, especially games with different endings and choices, like the Mass Effect series. You feel like this, even though in fact you are stuck to preprogrammed sequences.

The final positive of video games is that sometimes, and I need to express the sometimes, they can provide help, and even training for real life situations. This is usually in the form of simulators. The Sims is actually a perfect example of showing how determination and effort can help you in careers, life, and it also teaches youngsters that saving money can help you. Something that a lot of couch potatoes need to get into there skulls.

Here come the negatives. Firstly, it can cause deep vein thrombosis. Yeah I started with something more scary then anything. If you stay still for too long and don’t exercise your muscles in can cause, sort of blood clots in your veins and arteries, and it is detrimental towards your blood flow, which can cause life threatening issues.

Also of course, gaming has no long-lasting positive outcome in your life. Sure it feels great working towards that 50G achievement on Xbox, but that is only short time happiness. Will that really help you in your life? Then there is the fact that sitting around doing nothing is just plain lazy.

Finally, you feel bad about yourself. Not just because you know you could be doing better things, but also because staying still with have detrimental effects on your weight, muscle tone, and growth, if you don’t keep fit alongside this. This is why you should do what I do. Don’t play much video games, but when you do, make sure you still spend time keeping fit, healthy, and maintaining an active, real, social life. Not just a virtual one through social media.

Anyway, thanks all for reading. Remember to comment your opinion and also like and follow if you enjoyed the article.

R.I.P. Jack Bruce

So this is just going to be a quick extra post for today, after the recent passing of the amazing bass player of the legendary rock band ‘Cream’. This band were extremely influential to me, and were the band that started my interest in blues, and incorporating rock with blues. They actually, in my eyes, are the band that invented rock music. They took blues, made the guitars heavier, and made that sound. Countless bands over the years have copied this, and without them, I don’t know where music would be.

Jack Bruce was also the man who sung on a lot of there songs as well. To those who don’t know him, or them as well he did a lot of singing on there huge hit ‘Sunshine of Your Love’ which pretty much everyone knows. This man was a great inspiration to the world, and it is a shame that he has gone, and he will be sorely missed.

He unfortunately died of liver disease, and this was noticeable during the last few years of his life, however he still had a smile on his face, and it is glad to see that he was still enjoying himself. He passed away on the 25th October, surrounded by his family, which is a pleasant way for him to go, and for that, I am glad.

Jack Bruce, I hope you are having a great time wherever you are now, and you are in a better place then you were for the last few years of your life.

Rest in Peace.

Thanks all for reading!

Messaging Strangers

Have you ever messaged a stranger on Facebook? Twitter? Kik? Whatever it is people use to communicate with each other nowadays?

Well I have. Yes, call me weird, whatever, but I do it as a sort of social study. Just to see how people react to receiving a greeting from a stranger. Most of the time they respond with ‘hi’ as well, but never talk much after that. Omegle, Chatroulette and all that is very different, because when you are on the there, the soul purpose of that site is to talk to other strangers.

However it is shocking the kind of disrespect you get from messaging random people. I have only gained one ‘acquaintance’ from doing that. Her name is *censored for personal privacy* and she is an alright gal (I added in the censor stuff… as a joke… get it? No? Damn…) However I find that almost every time you are seen as ‘creepy’ or ‘awkward’ or some other negative word.

I am probably one of the few people who actually likes to go out and do this, but I find it fun. You are throwing yourself into someones life at a random unexpected place. The responses you get are funny. Some people say ‘I don’t know you seriously fuck off’. Others say ‘Hey’ then never reply again. A minute amount actually stay around for a full on proper conversation. For those of you that do, I applaud you for having human decency. I always do. Why be mean to someone? What if that person just wants company? They could be on a down night. There is no difference to that and a guy walking up to a girl in a bar.

Anyway, overall the statistics that I have collected say that 75% of women will tell a guy to fuck off, or blank him after a few messages, and that 100% of guys will do this if another guy messages them. What does that say? Girls are nicer and more open to communication with strangers then guys? I don’t know. It seems like people AUTOMATICALLY assume that you are coming onto them if you randomly message them on Facebook!

I am very grateful to the two wonderful ladies I met doing this over the last few days. I have sold them Escape the Fate tickets as well! Good times. Anyway people, just be mature and talk to each other. We are all human. Why not sit and have a chat with a stranger?

Thanks for reading. Happy chatting! Share, follow, comment, like or whatever to this if you enjoyed it!

A Step in the Right Direction (Personal Tales #3)

So I have decided to do weekly personal tales… to sort of give my avid followers (however minute they may be) an insight into my mind, and the life that I lead.

I will start with where I left off in Personal Tales #2. Me having to break up with my fiancee for personal reasons. That hurt. Literally, I still feel the heart ache, and yet it has all been easier then I thought. Why? Well, I have been feeling this way for a while. You see, my fiancee did many unforgivable things during the course of our relationship. However, I am not going to lie, I made my own mistakes as well, which, whilst not as bad as hers, where still bad enough to cause a lack of trust, and tension. What she did however, and continued to do for the course of our relationship was also bad (it wasn’t cheating or anything, but let’s just she say she had ‘problems’).

This all caused such a stress and burden on me. Especially some other things (again, which I will discuss at length later when I feel better about discussing it). However, now I feel as though a weight has been lifted off of me. Whilst I am still tied to her for life, I feel like I can start again, which is what I am doing right now.

In the time between then and now I have been talking to a girl I shall call… ‘Beaver’. Why? Because I am crude, and her name begins with the same two letters. I started talking to her on Saturday. It has all been smooth sailing since. We have been hitting it off well, and that all seems to be good. The problem with Beaver is however, she has a friend… who we shall call ‘Terrace’. Terrace is super besties with Beaver. To the point of them being inseparable. Literally, and I am yet to see Beaver without Terrace. Despite us expressing mutual interest in each other. Terrace does have a few problems of her own, and I know Beaver has some as well, which has caused anxiety trouble.

Now ladies who read this, tell me, do you think anxiety trouble could cause such lack of confidence, and such extreme anxiety that you couldn’t go anywhere without you friend? She is completely and utterly normal at home, and she is nice, friendly, and extremely beautiful. She is perfect for me (except her slight lack of good grammar) except for this one thing. It is a MAJOR problem though. I always seem to attract girls with problems. Always. As if I am drawn to them like iron to a magnet, and yet I just want a hassle-free relationship for once. Is that too much too ask?

Tell me what you think I should do. Like please. I need advice here.

Continuing on anyway, I am talking to two pretty cool people right now. There is a third who I am also on alright terms with. I would call one of them a friend (for how long is my question though) and the other two acquaintances probably. So I am getting somewhere. Thank God.

Anyway, thank you all for reading. Let me know what you think I should do in this Beaver and Terrace situation.

The Piss-Take that is Life (Personal Tales #2)

So I am going through more shit right now. I always seem to go through loads of stress, but right now is taking the piss even more then anything in a while. I had to leave my fiancee, which resulted in other bad things happening, and I am now left with nothing except work, and this blog. I still have almost no friends, except I am talking to a couple of people who COULD end up becoming friends.

In my life right now, I talk to a guy from college, a guy from my secondary school who talk to occasionally, and a random girl from somewhere in America I met on Omegle. She seems cool, but she is in America. Other then that, I have no one, and nothing on my side. I have my work as a Sound Engineer. I work extra days, do extra shifts, unpaid work, anything to keep my mind off of my life.

This life I lead is painful. Oh so very painful. I know it could be worse. I stopped really caring a long time ago. In fact I kind of want it to get harder just to see how much I can take. I am already being pushed, but I have a hunch that I will be pushed further.

Despite having little to do, I know I haven’t posted much lately. I have just been dealing with emotions, and trying to gain a social life. I have always dealt with my problems on my own, but sometimes it feels like I need to talk to people about things. Usually, I can’t, or I try and lay all of my problems on someone I barely know and they just don’t care.

Anyway, I am going to post more regularly now. Starting tonight. I will probably upload every second day from now on actually. It just makes it easier for me then every day.

I hope you all are well,

What Chatroulette Says About Us

Anyone here been on Chatroulette? Or Omegle? Or something like it? Well you know then that the amount of serial masturbators on these things is ridiculous. So many horny old men wanting to get themselves off over anything that is willing to show tits. It is sick, and depraved.

Now this isn’t just men. There are so many horny girls on these things as well. People who will take there top off for strangers. Why? Because they like being desirable to men, sure, that is normal, but it doesn’;t just come down to that. They are sluts, that is what it is. Not all women are like this no, just like not all men are serial masturbators, however it says a lot about society when about every 1 in 5 people you see on Chatrouletter are men with there dicks out getting off, and about 1 in 50 girls are horny, just showing off there tits. So seriously now, what does this say about society?

Do women need to show breasts to be desriable? No!

Do men need to have huge cocks to be desriable? No!

So why has society made us think this? Once again, it is the media, it is stereotypes, all of this brainwashes us into believing these things! We need to stop this! We need to start acting like caring people who aren’t just attracted to peoples exteriors.

There is nothing wrong with sex, or wanting to appear attractive to the opposite sex, but is it just about that? Really? Is this what the human race has become?

Thanks for reading. Follow if you liked, and like if you liked (That sounds so grammatically correct)

Andrew Garfield Fired as Spider Man

So basically Andrew Garfield has been fired as Spider Man… why? Well The Amazing Spider Man 2 underperformed A LOT. Even worse then The Amazing Spider Man. Sony’s original plans where to have ‘The Sinister Six’ come out in around 2015/2016 along with a ‘Venom’ movie and another film simply known as ‘A Film in the Spider Man Universe with a Female Lead’. This would then be followed with The Amazing Spider Man 3. This has all gone downhill after the second film underperformed.

Now the ‘Venom’ film has been scrapped, along with The Amazing Spider Man 3. Andrew Garfield isn’t going to be Spider Man anymore, however a Spider Man in some form will be in ‘The Sinister Six’ movie which is still going ahead. Personally I think this is terrible. I thought Andrew Garfield portrayed Peter Parker and Spider Man really well. He beat Tobey Maguire as well in my opinion.

Of course, this isn’t officially confirmed yet, but it almost certainly is true. An article has been published on badassdigest.com along with inside information.

Anyway thank you all for reading, I hope this is as crushing to you as it has been for me.
