homicide |

So, I’ve been watching loads of Discovery Channel (uh, final week was Shark Week- duh.) and Animal Planet. I’ve come to the conclusion that nature is basically merciless and typically tremendous gross. I imply, I undoubtedly nonetheless love nature and I actually love being out in it I simply don’t wish to see it that shut anymore. That is a kind of “ignorance is bliss” moments.
Take the feminine Praying Mantis. She takes a lover- then afterward decapitates him. She chews (or chops or one thing) his head off! And it’s like, sheesh, he can’t have been that unhealthy. Additionally, I can’t determine if he is aware of it’s coming or not. Like does he know that after the intercourse he’s going to DIE? As a result of if he is aware of, properly then honest play. But when he doesn’t…one thing about it simply appears improper. As a result of, why does he must die? Can’t she simply hit it and stop it? Why dying? Nature is complicated and brutal.
She is EATING her lover!! I wager they did not point out that on her eHarmony profile.
I additionally noticed this episode the place a small lion-like creature ( I wasn’t actually listening to the identify) attacked this actually fairly seemingly defenseless chook. And it’s like- hey you huge jerk lion decide on somebody your personal dimension and go away the beautiful chook alone. However then proper after that they confirmed that fairly chook murdering a snake or one thing and so I suppose it wasn’t that defenseless.
Is anybody else actually anxious in regards to the circle of violence in nature? Nobody? No? Simply me? Truthful sufficient. And I do know it’s nature and we aren’t supposed to essentially mess with it and simply let it’s however possibly there could possibly be like etiquette lessons for animals the place they study that’s isn’t good to brutally homicide one another. And likewise you possibly can educate them find out how to serve tea as a result of that may be a fairly superb trick.
So- I believe I’m type of performed with watching these reveals as a result of they simply make me really feel actually unhappy in regards to the state of the world. It simply looks as if if praying mantis {couples}, who appear to be they’ve all the things going for them, can’t make it then nobody can. Alas.
After I hit my head, and really feel actually certain that if I fall asleep I received’t get up due to a large head bleed.

After I inform folks that David Muir is the love of my life.
No person takes me critically.
When actually shiny lightening wakes me up within the evening and I really feel actually certain that aliens have landed.

Lovely, Peaceable- That is My Uganda
Yesterday, a spot I really like was attacked. Yesterday, individuals of all nationalities had been killed whereas watching the World Cup Finals in Kampala, Uganda. One of many locations that was bombed was a spot I do know properly. In 2008, I sat in that exact same rugby membership and watched the opening ceremonies of the Summer time Olympics with individuals from everywhere in the world. Everybody cheered as their respective nations walked across the stadium and I’ll at all times keep in mind how completely happy I felt at that second. They served good meals, they’d comfortable couches, everybody who got here there had a smile on their face. That evening in Kamapala, Uganda on the rubgy membership was certainly one of my happiest. And now that place is gone. Within the final ten minutes of an exciting match the world cut up aside for these in my favourite rugby membership in addition to these at a close-by Ethiopian restaurant.
I don’t perceive this sort of disrespect for human life. I merely can’t comprehend such a hate. Truthfully, at this level I don’t care who perpetrated this assault and why- it received’t change what has already been performed. Later, I’ll marvel and speculate. At present, nevertheless, I simply wish to keep in mind that place because it was and ship all my ideas and prayers to those that are in hospital recovering and the households of these 74 who won’t ever recuperate. At present, the attackers is not going to occupy my mind- they don’t deserve first thoughts- first ideas are reserved for these whose nice and completely happy evening was delivered to an abrupt and violent finish.
One in every of my favourite Ugandan hang-outs is gone however I received’t ever overlook the way in which it was. My recollections is not going to be tarnished by hatred. I cannot be afraid to journey again to the place I really like, the place the place I’ve discovered a few of my most joyful moments and experiences. Regardless of final nights occasions, Uganda will stay in my thoughts as some of the peaceable locations I’ve ever visited. A spot the place I not solely witnessed peace, however the place I discovered my very own.
I opened the fridge at my workplace in the present day. It smelled like one thing had been brutally murdered in it. It was past retch worthy. Not solely was I afraid one thing would leap out of the fridge after which brutally homicide me to replenish the smell- I used to be principally anxious in regards to the drink I had left in it yesterday. The opened drink that I used to be fairly certain would now style like homicide.
Now, at this level, most individuals would in all probability simply throw away that drink. Not I. I selected to trepidatiously sip at my day-old-cooled-by-a-murder-smelling-refrigerator beverage. Fortunately for me, it didn’t style like homicide. It tasted similar to the combined berries it ought to have. Boy, was I relieved. Additionally, afterwards, I needed to marvel why I had chosen to take a sip, certain it labored out alright in the long run however that might have been essentially the most disgusting of beverage disasters. Why on this planet, did I take the possibility?
I don’t actually have a solution however I do know one factor. Somebody in my workplace is chargeable for that foul stench. After all, when cornered and mercilessly interrogated, nobody would admit their wrong-doing (or on the very least forgetfulness). There are only some believable conclusions to attract from this.
1. Somebody at my office is attempting, unsuccessfully, to kill me through my sense of scent.
2. There’s truly some sort of hob-goblin dwelling in that fridge that’s invisible and is brutally murdering issues after which making them invisible after which letting them rot for the enjoyment of seeing the workplace’s disgusted faces. (I heard someplace that hob-goblins get essentially the most pleasure out of constructing individuals disgusted).
3. There are vampires working right here they usually accidently left their bottles of blood opened within the fridge and now they don’t need anybody to comprehend it was them as a result of their tremendous secret vampire identities could be revealed.
4. There isn’t a scent in any respect and I’ve a large mind tumor that’s making me scent issues that don’t exist.
These are the one logical conclusions I’ve come to. Don’t even get me began on the unbelievable situations I’ve concocted for the supply of the scent (suffice it to say certainly one of them includes time journey). Anyway you take a look at it, I’m unsure my office is secure anymore.
