Rant or just other stuff?

Well I was going to rant, but then I thought why bore you with some of the same old stuff over and over again, or rather I just can't be arsed ranting about it anymore? There was another point I wanted to rant about, but I can't really be bother ranting about that either because the response from you reading this blog will be the same!!!

So, since I ain't having a rant and its February I'm gonna start the month off with someone else who had a rant about stuff... Wow, ranting, rant whats next??? Well anyhow to the point, its Bill Hicks... Here's a link to some cool quotes from his shows and also his actual website.

Just explore, but 1 of my favourite segments from his shows is:

"The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, 'Hey – don't worry, don't be afraid ever, because this is just a ride ...' And we ... kill those people. Ha ha, 'Shut him up. We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real.' It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because --- it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace." - Bill Hicks, "Revelations" 1990.

RIP Bill...
