Tolle Sachen

Das ist mal wieder ein politisches Lied von mir. Es hat noch keine Melodie, aber es wollte heute endlich raus in die Wildbahn (auch wenn es noch recht viele Ecken und Kanten hat) :)

Tolle Sachen

Ein Knasti kost' so viel wie ein Sozialarbeiter
Doch uns're Politiker denken immer weiter,
Sie woll'n in saubereren Städten leben,
Ohne Schmutz und ohne all den Pöbel eben,
Und das geht nur, wenn Pöbel nicht nur existiert,
Sondern statt zu meckern gleich gewalttätig wird.

Drum gibt es stets mehr Knastis, und die Sozis geh'n weg,
Denn ohne Geld kommt auch ein Sozi nicht vom Fleck,
Gewalt verbreitet sich fast wie ein Krebsgeschwür,
Die Städte werden sauber, und so brüten wir,
Die Klasse der Geächteten uns uns'rem Land,
Gewalt verschwindet niemals, wenn man sie verbannt.

Ein Sozi kost soviel wie ein Mensch im Knast,
Doch hält er Viele auf dem sich'ren Ast,
und bringt so sein Gehalt gleich vielfach wieder rein,
Drum wollt ihr Deutschland retten, stellt Sozialarbeiter ein,
Sie kosten nicht die Welt und halten Knäste leer,
Die Staatswirtschaft zu retten ist doch gar nicht schwer,

Es gibt 'nen Haufen einfacher und toller Sachen,
Die schützen unser Land, wir müssen sie nur machen.
Drum lasst die Videos und das Stadtverbot,
Gesunde Politik tut wirklich Not.

Hurt people

Someone wrote "Can you justify a genocide by the actions of the survivors that remain?" to provoke reactions.

This is my answer to it:
Collapse )

I'd like to add another point:

If you hit a person, that person is most likely to hit someone else in return. You shout at someone and that shouting carries on in a chain of bad mood.

When you now hit a people (and the jews where hit repeatedly for over a thousand years) and those people get into a position to be able to hit someone else, it is most likely that they will hit someone else.

So instead of saying "the small egomaniac was right to hit them, because they now hit others" you should rather say "the small egomaniac is responsible for the horror now happening in israel, because he imposed the horror on the jews (and though he was not the first to do it, he is the one they remember the most)".

There are people in israel who fight against this vicious circle of hurting people, but they fight a much harder fight than those who just throw bombs (regardless if they are bound to human beings or attached to missiles). The real fight is the fight for healing the wounds inside the soul of a whole people. And there are many people who need that kind of healing.

People die in that fight and they lose everything they have, but their fight for healing is the most important fight of all, and I think they know it, because else they wouldn't fight on while they are being called weaklings or traitors who weaken the dedication of the "rightful fighters".

And to make it worse, it's a tight rope: You need to help people heal themselves while you also need to support others in "enemy territory" to heal, too, because else those would fight on and on and start the downward spiral again, and you can't even say "no violence, ever", because you know that your country is being attacked, and that all your fight for healing would be in vain, if your country got destroyed.

Destruction is the wrong way, and be it only, because killing destroys the body of the one who gets killed, but the soul of the killer (not meant in the religious sene). 
And people with hurt souls need to heal, or they will create more violence.

And as a last sidenote: I am from germany, and I don't feel responsible for the actions of the germans half a century ago or for those of the Jews today. But I feel responsible for learning from our past and for helping others learn from it, too.


Nerd meme

Doo doo de doo waaaa doo de doo! (<-- That's you playing something.) Everyone appreciates the band/orchestra geeks and the pretty voices. Whether you sing in the choir, participate in a school/local band, or sit at home writing music, you contribute a joy to society that everyone can agree on. Yay! Welcome to actually doing something for poor, pathetic human souls. (Just kidding.)

You are the World

Completion, Good Reward.

The World is the final card of the Major Arcana, and as such represents saturnian energies, time, and completion.

The World card pictures a dancer in a Yoni (sometimes made of laurel leaves). The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother, the cervix through which everything is born, and also the doorway to the next life after death. It is indicative of a complete circle. Everything is finally coming together, successfully and at last. You will get that Ph.D. you've been working for years to complete, graduate at long last, marry after a long engagement, or finish that huge project. This card is not for little ends, but for big ones, important ones, ones that come with well earned cheers and acknowledgements. Your hard work, knowledge, wisdom, patience, etc, will absolutely pay-off; you've done everything right.

Das Ergebnis passt echt gut, allerdings nicht auf das was ich bin, sondern auf das, wohin ich mich entwickeln will.

Genau mit dem Abschlißen von Projekten habe ich nämlich Probleme.

Und den Drachen habe ich in Karlsruhe an der Wand hängen. Ich glaube, ich sollte ihn nach Heidelberg in die neue Wohnung mitnehmen...


You Are An INFP

The Idealist

You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.
Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.
It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.
But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.

You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.

PS: Seems I have some free time at the moment :)
Thanks for the great tests, Lastalda!
They are quite much fun, and this one fits rather nicely...

Ich habe jetzt endlich mal kurz geschaut, wie ich meine Filme von der Kamera auf meinen Rechner kriege, und zwei Minuten Googlen haben das Ergebnis gebracht:


Für den Chip und die DV-Camera müssen folgenden Module im File /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 eingetragen werden:
