Have your say ...
Lately, I find myself more and more annoyed with the commentmania on the internet and I think I'll make it my year of the snake resolution to stop scrolling as soon as I have reached the end of the article or news item I was reading.

Because in 9.5 out of 10 cases the things random strangers have to say are either, pointless, rude, ignorant, off-topic, stupid, very poorly written or a combination of all of these things. Somehow, the smart and well spoken people seem to stay far away from the "post a comment" buttons. And what do I gain from knowing what random stranger A in Glasgow thinks anyway? Nothing.

Also, I don't understand why there is a comment option for news at all. News are not blog posts or something of the kind, something that you post to start a conversation or get some feedback for your work. The news are just the news and they have done very well for many years without the input of barely literate randomers.

Horsagne has reached Germany (yes, that's lasagne with horse meat where there shouldn't be horse meat and said horse meat comes with horse meds and probably other shit that humans shouldn't consume ...) and I have stayed away from everything containing meat ever since. It's not the thought of eating horse meat that I find repulsive, it's the fact that you can't be sure what you eat. Might be a conspiracy of the vegetarians or maybe the Christians? It is lent after all ...


PS: Hope everyone had a nice Valentines Day ... or managed to ignore it, if that's more your thing. We didn't have time for anything really, but we're having sushi tonight :D
