Second-guessing

I’m just as biased…

…but I only discriminate against people who scare me, who make me uncomfortable and who make me fear for my personal safety.

Is it morally right to have prejudices against people i don’t really know just because of their criminal threatening behaviour?  [wikipedia] Criminal threatening is the crime of intentionally or knowingly putting another person in fear of imminent bodily injury. [/wikipedia] Although the author of the article clearly states that fear has to be induced by means of explicit violence to be considered a felony, can a non-violent course of action (e.g. a subtle stare, some pick-up line gone to the extreme, unwanted body closeness of any kind) be qualified as an indirect source of fear?

One thing I know is that acting on my beliefs should be wrong. It IS wrong. I know that being scared of someone doesn’t automatically make that someone a criminal.

Just trying to keep it rational.

Meaning

Find it and people might build up churches in your name. They might even dedicate you a war “Hey! This bomb’s for you!”.

Sorry for the sarcasm. It comes with some stupid question I have residing in my mind for quite some time, and not being able to answer it has brought me sleepless nights and a close-to-permanent pms.

So, good night, if i were living on the other side of the globe, but good morning for all you gmt+2 people. It Means I’m going to bed.

Lexeme

[later edit]

Nu mai am nicio curiozitate si nicio motivatie de a cerceta in amanunt psihicul uman. Devine complet anost cand oamenii din jur sunt modele de serie care mananca toti acelasi @#$%^, beau aceeasi apa contaminata si produc la nesfarsit deseuri cerebrale. Cei care mai invart niste rotite pe la mansarda sunt putini, excentrici si/sau megalomani si reprezinta exceptia de la regula.

Imi las ochelarii pe nas, cu toate ca sunt pentru citit. Nu vad nimic la mai mult de trei metri in fata mea. Strictul necesar as spune eu, suficient cat sa vad scarile pe care trebuie sa urc. Restul este completat de instinctul generat de rutina. Poate imi maresc dioptriile, si poate mai calc intr-o baltoaca sau doua, dar e un pret mic de platit pentru niste momente de ignoranta. Duceti-va…

O sa sterg postul asta cand o sa ajung sa nu mai cred ce-am scris.

Some like it hot

Some like it hot poster

Jerry: Oh no you don’t! Osgood, I’m gonna level with you. We can’t get married at all.
Osgood: Why not?
Jerry: Well, in the first place, I’m not a natural blonde.
Osgood: Doesn’t matter.
Jerry: I smoke! I smoke all the time!
Osgood: I don’t care.
Jerry: Well, I have a terrible past. For three years now, I’ve been living with a saxophone player.
Osgood: I forgive you.
Jerry: [Tragically] I can never have children!
Osgood: We can adopt some.
Jerry: But you don’t understand, Osgood!  [Pulls off wig]
Jerry: I’m a man!
Osgood: Well, nobody’s perfect! “

Cinefil

Agora movie posterSunt prea multe filme apocaliptice prin cinematografe! And wait, vor urma inca si mai multe. Mai e loc pe undeva de o comedie buna, de un thriller captivant, sau de un psihologic? In momentul asta nu sunt foarte picky, asa ca ar merge si o comedie romantica.

Am citit de “Agora” si ma incanta ideea. Si “Clash of the Titans” am vazut ca o sa fie dragut. Dar abia astept Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”; sunt sigura ca o sa fie cel mai reusit de pana acum.

Recomand calduros chiar daca sunt mai vechi: The Fountain, A Good Year, Beyond Borders, City of Ember, Dangerous Liaison, Deception, Things We Lost In The Fire, I Could Never Be Your Woman, Prime, Easy Virtue, The Cherry Orchard, Some Like It Hot and last but not least The Emperor’s New Groove :D.

Oricum, la mai multe filme bune!

Later edit: It just came to me: I’ve never seen The Notebook. And yes people, I’m still alive.

Ovid

“I blush, that being youthful, hot, and lusty,
I prove neither youth nor man, but old and rusty.”

Big Five Personality Questionnaire

OPENNESS – You seem to be someone who is intellectually curious and appreciative of what you consider beautiful, no matter what others think. You might say that your imagination is vivid and makes you more creative than many others.

CONSCIENTIOUSNESS – You seem to be someone who is impulsive and whimsical, and fine with it! It appears that you would say that sometimes decisions need to be made quickly, and that you make them quicker than most! You would say you are zany, colourful, and just generally great fun to be with… as long as someone isn’t relying on you to get some work done.

EXTRAVERSION – You seem to be someone who prefers low-key social occasions, with a few close friends. You might say that it’s not that you are afraid of large parties; they’re just not that fun for you.

AGREEABLENESS – You seem to be someone who gets along with people well, especially once they have proved themselves trustworthy to you. You do have a healthy scepticism about others’ motives, but that doesn’t stop you from considering others to be basically honest and decent.

NEUROTICISM – You seem to be someone who is calm and emotionally stable. You come across as someone who is rarely bothered by things, and when they do get you down the feeling does not persist for very long.

Or at least that’s what they say I’m like.
