As some of you know (and by “some” I mean 2 readers of my blog , out of 10 that is…) that I haven’t been happy since I moved to Montreal.
I find the city too boring(unless you are into clubbing,getting drunk, being stoned, or watching hockey), uncultured ( unless you consider people smoking weed and singing on the grass a culture…), extremely racist( don’t have to be sarcastic in here, anybody who googled anything about Montreal and Quebec can see them for themselves), shallow (reminds me a lot of Beirut), very corrupt (highest income taxes, but one of the worse in services, roads much worse than Lebanon), and going further in my career in this city will take too much effort for not much in return.
So, I decided to leave, in the next 6 to 8 months.
So the possible destinations are the following:

1-Toronto: the main city of Canada for businesses, everything is there, people are more tolerant, more mixed, career paths are much more available, etc. But with the some of the problems Montreal has.
2-Los Angeles: Clean, big city, lots of potential , but SHALLOW like hell.
3-San Francisco : Chill small city, full of nerds and geeks, high salaries, lots of potential for me, expensive as hell.
4-Edinburgh: My dear lovely city, I would be happy there, I have a social life there, but I know the salaries are pretty low.
5-Somewhere else? : If anybody has a suggestion, and no not Saudi , or Qatar… thank you very much…

In the mean time, I am “unrusting” my skills, I have been in my current job for 2 years and a half the exposure of newer technology in this company is rare (at best), I am guessing I need 2 or 3 months to catch-up, create some mock projects and apply them and cleaning up my CV and start searching…

I can’t wait…

I haven’t been in Edinburgh since I left it 5 years ago, I still have friends in there. I am excited 🙂

I have been waiting for a couple of days for anything in the Lebanese news about this subject…but nothing…

Maybe Lebanese journalists don’t follow up on anything related to science and they prefer to follow what one of warlords ate for breakfast or which washout “singer” did today.

Anyways, Curiosity found an iron meteorite on Mars and it was named “Lebanon”.  If you don’t know what Curiosity is, GO AWAY!

Everyday I read the news in Lebanon , not because I am interested in any of the shit that is going on there but because of the car bombs and suicide bombings that have been occurring in the last few weeks. My family still lives there after all.

And everyday I see crazy non political and non security related news , 21 year old marries 11 year old, some criminal gets detained so his family closes roads and burn tires until he is released and today I read about the teacher who was killed by her husband without an interference from the law. Lebanon is deteriorating, people are becoming more and more retarded, friends that were always like “we will never leave Lebanon” are urging people to leave for their own safety.

I have a suggestion… seems people are more interested in the after life than the current life so… if you are a criminal from any kind you should not get a religious burial, instead your body should not be buried at all, it should be tossed away like trash, no prayers allowed, no people allowed to even attend to it. Just get rid of the damn body.It might have more effect than the fear of the law…anybody protesting this will not get a religious burial either, anybody disobeying this law should be counted as a criminal as well his executed body tossed away like shit too.

 

fucking nuts… fucking religion… fucking brainwashed idiots… fucking …fucking…fucking…

there has to be something more to life than working 9 to 5…(read 10 to 7), then go home and sit in front of the TV or computer.

I have been watching Californication season 4 and you know what? his life is fucked up and all but he has a good life.

If he used it properly that is, no boss, no office, no 9 to 5, free to do what he wants during the day, chill, etc. etc.

I want a life like this, and frankly my domain is not the way to do it. Even if I want to generate “passive income” I still need to work quite a bit daily just to keep infrastructure/code/maintenance/moderation up.

I need to find something…

I am in few Atheist groups on some social media, and a lot of time posts tend to mock religious belief for their insanity and lack of logic, and there are always theists who complain that we shouldn’t mock other people’s beliefs (not even mentioning death threats and other kind of threats).

We are just mocking religion. On the other hand, in quite a bit of countries just because I am atheist and do not believe your fairy tales I am as good as dead. Either by people who think they are doing their imaginary friends will (usually not punished by their government or given very light sentences) or executed by the government itself (like the “country” of saudi arabia).

In other words: FUCK OFF.

 

PS: If you don’t want to see your religion mocked, don’t join atheist groups you dimwits!

Yep, your eyes are not deceiving you, and the title is not sarcastic at all.
Someone I know asked me if I really think that Religion is evil and nothing good comes out of it.
He asked that because he kept seeing me repeating an FB status: Religion… the root of all evil.
I usually put that after a car bombing or a massacre that is cause by religious fanatics , the frequencies of which keep on increasing…

Anyways back to the subject; Good things come out of Religion for sure! Specially in the past:

  • When people donate out of religious conviction for the poor or orphanages for example, I call this good that came out of religion. I don’t specifically call the people donating as good, because the true intention of donating is to book a seat in the supposed heaven but nonetheless the good that came out of it (food, shelter, clothes etc) is umm GOOD.
  • When science advances because of religion: Lots of tool, funding for scientists, architecture concepts, etc. got a boost up because of building all those grandiose temples that religion tends to have (highest buildings in the ancient world, most elaborate ornaments, etc.)
  • The first city ever built was built because of religion, at a time where humans did not even know how to grow food, it is called Gobekli Tepe in turkey and it is 11,000 years old where a temple is the centre of it.(Note humans were nomads before discovering how to farm)
  • It gave structure and laws in times where laws did not matter, a fear of punishment was needed to keep people in line. (of course used by the fragile elders to keep control over the young and powerful ).

 

The problem is at this age: we have laws, we have logic, we have science, and now religion is hindering us. How many scientists were killed by religion because they said the earth is round and it revolves around the sun? how many research were stopped because it is not according to some religion? how many damn wars were because of religion? how much racism, sexism, hate and elitism were caused because of religion?

Fairy tales don’t have a place in this modern world. When we die , we die. You don’t have to invent crazy stories to make yourself comfortable.

Cheers…

Anyone who has been reading my blog for a long while knows that I contest about what identify an Arab.In my humble opinion most people who identified as arabs are not, since to be from a certain group you have to have certain things in common (not just the written language or the religion).

In that same sense, when I see people pissed off at Israelis stealing Palestinian culture bit by bit, (food, culture, dance, cuss words, clothes etc) I laugh, and I say let them be, let them steal all they want, because at the end when you reach a point where you talk like a Palestinian, dance like Palestinian, eat like a Palestinian, wear clothes like a Palestinian… guess what? you have become a Palestinian. I find this funny… becoming exactly what they despise.
Win 🙂
