Nothing Works Nowadays - Have You Noticed?

It's like a barbarian invasion in slow motion. Every single damn thing in the world around us seems to have been constructed by mental defectives who were using faded pictures they found in a magazine printed in Mandarin. Nothing really works anymore.

The next time you wonder why your laundry smells funky even after it has come through the wash, remember that Western governments mandated worldwide that your water heater is forbidden to heat water to a degree it would kill any germs. A moldy household is required by law. You couldn't make this stuff up. Seriously.

Zuckerberg made a billion dollars from air and social engineering with the help of people in high places - where's the motivation for people to show up at their day jobs?
"Soap doesn’t work. Toilets don’t flush. Clothes washers don’t clean. Light bulbs don’t illuminate. Refrigerators break too soon. Paint discolors. Lawnmowers have to be hacked. It’s all caused by idiotic government regulations that are wrecking our lives one consumer product at a time, all in ways we hardly notice. It’s like the barbarian invasions that wrecked Rome, taking away the gains we’ve made in bettering our lives. It’s the bureaucrats’ way of reminding market producers and consumers who is in charge."
The West is being run by the runts of the litter, the ugly puppies left in the basket when the good puppies have all been taken.

Tex, ive been saying it publicly for over a year now. there is so much ineptitude it really astounds me. we are really going backwards in all facets of society. councils, police, courts, completely inept. i believe it is a result of truth, honesty and knowing right from wrong all going out the window years before. i could write a book on the ineptitude and the wasted millions at my work. no-one cares. you approach a supervisor with a time/labour/money saving approach to the process, "good idea blah blah blah", blind freddy can see the waste, nothing changes.
ive recently decided to see everything as a big joke, everyone is simply taking the piss. you only have to turn the TV on to see it for yourself.

I think the sardonic sneer you get on any subject concerning anything should be diagnosed as a new kind of contagious mental illness.

I would take an oath in court that I have worked at places that if you told them the building was on fire and they should immediately go for the exit stairwell, they'd sneer and come back with "oh really?" while arching one eyebrow. Even as the smoke was filling the air.

At some point, constantly acting jaded about any information, no matter how poignant or cause for concern, has to be considered a sort of lunacy.

The point of the human brain is to react to the information and create a solution. You can't get that.

It's so bizarre in the IT industry I have to say I genuinely think on some days I am the only real software developer in the city. The other 99.9999% are professional actors walking through their roles to earn a middle class lifestyle.

Right up to the moment the project tanks, you get these wry amused smiles and a kind of euphoric assurance that everything is just peachy. The boss comes in and says the company is bankrupt and today is the last day for everybody in the building. "Whatever!" they exclaim, a grin peeling their teeth back. "I am sure it all evens up in the end. Where are we going for lunch?"
