so they are annoying me again 
23rd-Aug-2008 11:45 pm

Some of you might have noticed that one of the things that annoy me the most are those protesters who go for trendy causes and protest away, without having a clue about the issues they burn so intensely for. I've talked about idiot anti whalers, anti seal clubbers and anti fur fanatics before, I know. Humans are doing so much stupid crap to this planet, and these are the issues they spend all their money and time on? No no! It also bugs me how big this "Free Tibet" thing has gotten now. China is doing a lot of terrible things, and I'm not even sure Tibet is on the top 10 of that list. Someone told me last week that most Tibetans don't even want independence from China and that Dalai Lama and his lot only represent a faction of the Buddhists there. (i don't know the details of what i was told so don't ask me to defend it. educate me, if you know better).

I suppose the Western media is to blame for a lot of it, but still. Gah >.<

Enough about that!

Today I chatted with a really cool boy on the internet who is from Nepal. So exotic! ^^ And maybe it is just my big weakness for asian boys, but wow he is cute.

Hmmmm yes.

Here are some more photos from Norway. There is my cousin Emil, their dog Basse and some blueberry picking too.

I look strange in this one...

She's catching blueberries in her mouth, but you can't really see.

I don't know the English word for this. It's what the reindeer eat.

I'm not the expert on the subject, but I'm pretty sure the dalai lama doesn't want Tibet to get independance. He just wishes China would stop killing and torturing his people :)

Here in Paris people were trying to stampede the poor guy with the Olympic torch, yelling for China to get out of Tibet. They don't even know what they are protesting against :/

I feel you, I hate hearing kids my age talk about politics. They know nothing and they can't even vote.

Otherwise, beautiful photos. That dog is precious. :3

Reindeer lichen, specifically.

oh and btw, I'm pretty sure that plant is just called Reindeer moss .... yay for A-Level Biology :p haha
24th-Aug-2008 03:13 pm (UTC)
Some other people already commented and called it lichen.

Sure it was A level? :p
24th-Aug-2008 01:12 am (UTC)

We like the same types of boys D:

I challenge you to a duel!!
24th-Aug-2008 03:14 pm (UTC)
I accept your challenge!

Something I dislike is taking a visible issue and a not-so-representative group of its supporters and branding the entire thing as "trendy". If a group of hypothetically shallow and misinformed people protested a very real issue, that wouldn't keep the issue from existing.

Of course everything is not black and white.

I'm just frustrated over how big this group of people is sometimes...
24th-Aug-2008 06:17 am (UTC) - protesters
Hey, I couldn't agree more about the people that devote their time to stupid causes like the seal hunt and tibet. Huge amounts of money are donated to the dalai lama and his religious "industry". For most Tibetans, Chinese rule is a much better alternative to the religious theocracy that would be once again created if the old system were to be restored.
The Reindeer food is lichens - I think. And my Norwegian father's name was Emil. Your cousin does not look like my father.:) Cheers.

And he is like 16 :P

oh that's so strange markus..maybe that man was stupid, but fighting people that are killing the whales it's a good reason to fight ( with non-violence).

Tibet it's a thing that it's not goin' on in China, but in the same moment that you are writing that, someone is in danger, someone die because a china policeman is killing someone or just because you are telling people that you don't like your government...

That's it's life.. but we can try to think better, if you don't mind to do something.

but why? there is some questionable whaling (mostly japan), but how is it different from other kinds of hunting?

I am not exotic, I'm exhausted.

"I've talked about idiot anti whalers, anti seal clubbers and anti fur fanatics before, I know."

It is very easy for someone to sit on his/her ass and offend those who are trying to make a difference. I am pretty sure YOU WOULD GIVE A DAMN if you were waiting in a cage to be annally electrocuted, poisoned by injection, etc. and even BEING SKINNED ALIVE so soomeone could wear your skin. Fortunately for you NO ONE would want to wear your ugly skin.

It is because of people like who live like insect, and do NOTHING good for anyone that this world is the shit that it is.

I think that if you're going to fight whaling and seal clubbing, you should be fighting all other forms of hunting as well. If that's your stand then I guess we still disagree, but at least you have my respect. At least there is logic and rationality.

But I'm fed up with people who figh whaling because they think whales are somehow more special or seal clubbing because baby seals are cute.

I mean there is so much stupid shit that humans are doing to animals and the enviroment that killing them for food and goods seems like nothing. Just because I might have different opinions of where our priorities should lie, doesn't mean I don't "give a damn".

As for how we treat animals in captivity, yeah there is a lot of nasty stuff going on. I don't think the whaling and seal industry are the villains there though.
