Dimwits on Duty

Poster by city government Oldenburg

Here you see a poster that was designed by our city government and plastered all over the place. It informs us about a 50 Euro fine if we fail to clean up after our dogs. In general I agree with that and I believe that it should be a matter of course and respect that we clean up after our dogs. Actually it is quite embarrassing that some people need to be reminded, yet even forced to to do that. So what’s the point here? Hang on, we are getting there.

Every time you want to establish an administrative act, you need to make you are willing an able to enforce it, else it would be as effective as a hedgehog fart. In this case the city government wants to establish a fine for not cleaned up poop. In order to get to that money they will have to bust people right when it is happening, else you can not prove who did it. They would actually have lots of people patrolling at least those areas most frequented by dogs on walkies. Did that happen? Nope! And people still don’t clean up after there dogs simply because they are ignorant idiots and nothing happens anyway. Hedgehog Fart right there!

Public Trash Can maintained by the city administration of the city of Oldenburg

And now we get to the point. Here you see a public trash can. The same people who are responsible for that poster are in charge of emptying the public trash cans. You see, lots of people are cleaning up behind their dogs but the city administration fails to do their job. It is their responsibility to keep these can’s clean, tidy and empty but for some strange reason they just don’t do it. And it’s not like we would have tons of public trash cans. They got rid of most of them but still, they fail to empty those few left. Now I wonder, do they have to pay a fine to us, the tax payers?

Her Royal Cuteness, Miss “Snugglebug” Amilia

This story is about preconceptions and how life proves them wrong in a very funny way. I think most of us are not free of preconceptions, right? I mean, I see a tax officer and think “quick, shoot it”, but I’m sure there are fair and kind tax officers out there . . . somewhere . . . maybe . . . naaa just shoot it. This was a stupid example but I’m sure you totally get what I mean, right? It happened last week. Ami had a walkies date with her best buddy Mr. D. He is the most adorable apple head chihuahua. Yes, this combo seems odd, a rather chunky (don’t tell her I said that) Old English Bulldog and this 15 cm / 6 inches bundle of cuteness, but they complete each other somehow. He is a huge dog in a tiny body and Ami is a tiny dog in a huge body. So we where walking through the local nature preserve. The path there can get pretty narrow at some points, less than a meter, so we where walking one after another, Ami and I first, Mr. D and his mom right after us.

His Royal Cuteness, Mr. “Maximum Carnage” D

We where just at a especially tight spot when a woman with a beautiful border collie came from ahead. As she walked closer she first looked at Ami and then she asked me “is it dangerous?”. And I’m like yes totally savage, be aware. Inside I was rolling my eyes at her. So she sneaked by on tiptoes. Ami didn’t even look at them, totally boring to her. And then they reached Mr. D . . . . GROWLROARDROOLSNARLGROWL!!! He totally made clear that he is no nonsense and that he doesn’t appreciate people looking funny at us. 6 inches total savageness. *grins* I love that little guy so much. Ami does too. And that woman maybe learned something. Things often are not what they look like. Have a pawesome day everybody and be safe out there.

Server Lag

Haaren River, early Fall

If you ever played any MMO, you know exactly what server lag is. Now, the past weeks it seems that life itself had some lag. Example: the calendar clearly said “Fall” but the weather was still stuck in July. Everything else went like in slow motion as well and don’t get me started on my creativity. She went off on vacation and refuses to come back. It is not that I don’t have any ideas. I have tons of ideas but when I want to sit down and draw something, it’s like somebody is holding the pause button down. That’s so annoying. Oh well, I just noticed that Gimp released an update, maybe that will get me going. You all have a pawesome week ahead and stay safe.

Dear Mrs. Merkel

You do not know me but I’m one of your 83.1 million (source: Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland) employers but just to make this perfectly clear, I did never vote for your (not that the other option would have been any better). This morning I stumbled over a video of yours on Reuters channel. You where lecturing to an international audience about “feminism” . . . in German! What the fuck! You are doing this job for 16 years now and you never bothered to learn English? Your job requires you to interact and communicate with people from all over the planet and you still don’t speak the most spoken language on this planet? What the fuck is wrong with you? It is English, not rocket science. It’s fun and easy to learn, every teenager speaks it, it’s standard language on every airport (simply because it’s spoken everywhere), gamer speak it, regardless where they live, all of our neighbors speak it, just you don’t? It shows a ridiculous lack of respect as well as an absurd level of ignorance.

And as we talk about ignorance, don’t you think that you have more pressing matters to talk about right now than “feminism”? Our flood victims are STILL (8 weeks after the flood) without any help, no power, destroyed homes, no nothing and you have nothing better to do then to talk about feminism? What the fuck is wrong with you? Your job is to make sure these people are getting the really needed help ASAP but I bet you don’t even know what is going on there right now. You get paid anyway, regardless if you do your job or not. And that exactly is the problem with you politicians, you get paid in any case. Maybe you should have a look at our constitution. You can read, can you? There you can read “from the people, for the people”. Let me explain it to you, just to make sure you get it. We gave you the job, we pay you every month (way to much btw) and for that we expect that you make sure everything here in our country runs smooth and that everybody has a home, cloth, food, etc. And because we are quite fair employers you got plenty of co-workers to help you with your task and we pay a ton of taxes so you can get the job done. Yes, of course, talking about irrelevant stuff is fun and I really can understand why you prefer to do that, but that is not your fucking job. Thanks goddess you will finally retire this year. Let’s just hope we’ll chose smarter this time.
