Been there, is fascinating. Might sound a bit morbid/strange, but i like interesting Cemeteries, the one in Kensal Green is worth a look.

After going to the catacombs in Paris (and agree about cunts being about….some of the skulls are graffited) learnt about this place. Child skeleton hanging up is another level.

There's nothing on the YMC site I want to buy, but if you move your mouse to and fro over the pictures the models look like they're dancing really badly, surprisingly amusing.

i've got a weird theory.

I've got couple of theories which I don't necessarily believe but think are interesting trains of thought.

If a kid got molested when they were really young, when they didn't know what was going on properly, i think its reaction of the people around them who which will determine how mentally scarred they are. So whoever did it goes jail and then the family hide the kid from that and pretend that nothign bad happened the kid would grow up without the trauma of them crying and bascially showing the kid what happened was wrong and giving them this train of thought that there different/wrong/this terrible traumatic event had happened. If people can act like its an ok the kid would miss the trauma young and could be councilled later in life when they could begin to understand what happened. with this though maybe it would fuck them up more when they were older. there must be some journals about condition of trauma or something.

that kind of sounds like the ramblings of a lunatic but you get what i mean

Collizhun, i think you've got a point there tbh. In a tiny tiny way, it's like when a kid falls over. If you pick them and tell their fine, and don't fawn over them, they just take it like a bawce. You start coddling them and they scream the house down.

The ignorant stupid people thing is deffo true. I work with some right mouth-breathers and they just do their 8 hours a day, for 16k, watch corrie and drink tea. Happy as larry.

But is that wrong, if they are happy ?

Perhaps we should all learn to be happy with what we've got ?

I often wonder at what drives people like Bill Gates to get more and more money, are you happier with $40 billion than you are with $1 billion, or $500 million, or even $1 million ?

I don't think it becomes about money at that point, i think it comes with the prestige of building one of the biggest most influential companies in the world. Over $1b, it just becomes a number i think.

But for most of us, once we had enough money to not have to work anymore we'd stop, I just wonder what makes them carry on when they don't need to, I guess they enjoy their work but I think there might be some kind of mental issues involved.

For gates it could be about the aids and cancer research, his foundation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_%26_Melinda_Gates_Foundation and other things like that.

There's a question I've been asking people. If you could remain on a fixed salary of 50k a year for the rest of your career would you accept?

There has been alternate views to this which I find interesting.
