Eerie Chinese Ghost Cities

Reports of Chinese ghost cities have been trickling in for over a year. Previously, these reports were nothing more than abstract statistics but new images put a very real face on those figures.

Like a cheesy sci-fi flick where the human population has mysteriously vanished, these ghost cities sit eerily vacant while dead leaves collect in unswept and unused foyers. This is not Hollywood’s latest blockbuster but a stark reality.

Finance Asia reports that about 64 million apartments and houses have remained empty over the last 6 months. A truly shocking statistic considering that this figure represents potential housing for roughly 200 million people or almost two-thirds of the population of The United States.

Think Your The Only One Who Hates Social Media?

No you are not.

I happen to miss MySpace. MySpace wasn’t prefect but it inspired people to be creative do to how much people could customize their profiles (though some sucked and caused browsers to crash). If it weren’t for MySpace me and many others wouldn’t have become interested in web design. MySpace was also the place to meet new people from around the world. Facebook isn’t like that. Facebook is simply for people to talk with the people they know personally. It’s hard to meet new people and spread knowledge, plus the pages all look the same.

I think Murdoch ruined MySpace on purpose because people were becoming too individualistic and being exposed to too much information. The same goes for pre-Google YouTube. Facebook on the other hand ensures that people stay on the internet just to talk to people they could easily meet up with in person instead of using that internet time to meet new people from around the world and learn new things.

I find it funny that as Facebook became “the thing” people became dumber.

As far as Twitter is concerned I also think it’s stupid. “Hey isn’t typing a whole paragraph too much work for your fluoridated brain with that rap crap beating in the background? why not further reduce your attention span with MICROblogging”.

2010 NFL on Fox - It's Good To Have a Ring - Airport

The commercial below features arrogant NFL stars being waved past TSA security as they flash their Super Bowl rings, while “ordinary” passengers are forced to wait in line.

At one point in the commercial Jimmy Johnson– a former coach– sets off a metal detector before the camera focuses on his hips and he displays a sword to the screener in an obvious representation of a phallus. The screener, smiling, compliments him and lets him proceed.
In the final shot the viewer sees a man being held by an agent, stripped down to his underwear while menaced by snarling dogs.

This is insane, anyone who likes this ad just admitted to being a slave.

The rich are better than us, that’s what this commercial is placing in the minds of those who watch it with a calm smile on their faces. I’m so tired of propaganda. It takes true originality to bow before the social engineers in our media. Humanity is losing my respect big time.

Do people want to be enslaved?

To all of you who think this is good, like waking people up. Its NOT! Pure unadulterated conditioning of the mindless public. Proof of conditioning is shown in the last few seconds of the ad. Its set to make the tyrannical freedom stomping incident humorous.
