    “The apathetic church of pragmatic nihilism” or “the church of apathetic pragmatic nihilists”? My hair and beard are long enough to qualify me to start a cult or religion.

    I love life. But nothing, really nothing, absolutely nothing matters. There is no real purpose in life. Only what each individual thinks is true. And nothing is true. There is no right or wrong.

    We live on a planet that happened to be somewhere in a goldilock zone in a solar system on the edge of a galaxy. One galaxy of billions in this universe.

    If our planet disappears tomorrow nobody would notice. All our little human lives, aspirations, careers are nothing.

    We're just bacteria and even smaller than that on a cosmic scale. Average human lives are about 70-80 years while this planet will exist for a few more billion years before the sun swallows it and explodes in a supernova.

    And one day even this universe will just disappear before a possible new one is born in a new cycle.

    Life is beautiful but nothing really matters.

    Top Tip:

    If your primary means of communication with a business partner is IM or email, and you spend most of your time being sarcastic dicks to each other - try and ensure the one time you're not being sarcastic dicks to each other is made clear so that no confusion arises.

    I've just been told off for not doing something, when I thought The Other was being a massive sarcastic dick. Going back through the IM exchange now, I'm still not sure at what point the conversation turned literal. Fucking idiots, both.

    If you own or want to own a Fujifilm INSTAX film camera, note that you can buy film on eBay for cheap money.

    Each shot worth normally around 1$, on eBay you can buy 10 packs (100shots) for 12$ .. that's 0,12$ each shot.

    I dreamt that we stumbled across this rather grotesque looking pigeon with mammal like feet and really light grey fur. We deduced from inspecting the surroundings and seeing the abundance of pigeons and squirrels sharing the same space that it was a pigeon/squirrel hybrid. It really freaked me out. The feet were hideous.

    Is a bus speeding diwn a street, carrying humans and flashing lights, alive? At what point does something that functions begin to be considered living?

    Yo. I’ve been posting a lot of dumb shit here lately. I don’t know why. Maybe I’m subconsciously venting my disdain for social media in general, especially Facebook. I’ve wrote some stupid shit and posted some lame memes that were at times inflammatory, for no good reason at all. It’s not the experience I want to have here on QBN and it doesn’t feel right.

    Or maybe I just don’t like downvotes which is an even bigger problem lol. Anyway just wanted to say that, and I’m excited to once again be a good QBN citizen. I ignore the shit I don’t agree with on here and that’s the way it should be.

    Woken at 5am to some noise. Go to living room, window open. Laptop gone. Wallet gone. Watch gone. Wacom and backpack gone.

    Been working on some music and personal projects and had been too relaxed in my backing up lately. Had become too trusting and complacent. Lost 4 months personal creative work.

    There's a new guy at work who is maybe 5'8" and he's great.

    We don't work together directly though. Someone asked me if I met the "new guy" and my response was "oh, the short guy? yes".

    And then I felt bad.

    If you're a shorter guy or bald, that's often the first thing someone uses to describe you.

    I've been working and wandering my way through Europe for 35 days now. I had a pretty decent route planned until yesterday when I found out about the Schengen agreement.

    I don't know how I missed this in my initial research, but it basically means I can only be within the EU borders for 90 days. I am scheduled to be in Europe for about 112.

    So now I am trying to find a quick gig (I'm using http://workaway.info for this entire trip) in Montenegro or Ireland or Albania or something just to take a few weeks and get my passport stamped a couple more times, just to come back within the borders and leave again.

    National borders are some real fuckery. But everything else is dope as fuck.

    • I dealt with this in HK before I moved there a few years ago. I’d go to Macau for a weekend to reset my passport entry date into HK. Enjoy your travels!imbecile
