This facebook issue has really become too much. I agree with this. Hell yeah.
Another issue that has gotten way out of hand are reactionary students with half a brain each who don’t care about peaceful negotiation and cause mayhem – not that they are intelligent enough to even manage that. It’s disgusting what a small group of people can do if they frighten others enough. Threatening others to join their meaningless “cause” and causing disruptions can hardly change anything. Maybe I am too old now to feel what they are feeling. Maybe I am too old now to fall for stupidity.
Isn’t everything stupid? There are serious electricity issues and all people want to talk about is facebook! Don’t they want a better life? Why don’t they push their own government to help them (push hard enough, that is) instead of rejoicing over how they have caused major (imaginary) losses by boycotting and inducing the ban on facebook? Wow, I didn’t realize facebook was more important than food and water and electricity.
And has anyone noticed what’s happening in Hunza? My friends are from Hunza. I do care what happens there. And even if they weren’t from Hunza, I’d still notice how people might be losing their homes in a bad way very soon. Is facebook more important than natural disasters?
Also, I was robbed a couple of days ago in a dark street at 9:30pm. Why I was walking about in a dark street alone is complicated. They were amateurs I suppose because I still have my wallet and my phone but the event itself was traumatic. Because there are no streetlights (loadshedding, you see) it was dark. Three men suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Now I was in shalwar kameez, complete with giant dupatta so I felt reasonably unnoticeable. But there they were and suddenly I realized there was nobody around. So I attempted bravado and used my schoolteacher voice to tell them to give way. But they surrounded me. This could have gone very very wrong so I just stood there, clutching my bag asking them what they wanted. Money (duh) they said. Give us your money. And I stared at them stupidly because I really was at a loss. Funny thing was, they stared at me stupidly as well. One might have grinned a bit but it was dark. I stepped back and realized one of them was behind me and then another one grabbed at my bag (half-heartedly) and I lost it. I pushed him and he pushed me. That really freaked me out so I pulled out my wallet and they still looked at me stupidly. After an awkward moment I pulled out all the cash I had and held it out. Meanwhile, some man on a bicycle went calmly by and that scared them so they snatched the cash and ran off into the trees and I just ran blindly until I got home. The end. This probably all happened in less than 2 minutes but now that I think about it, it was the weirdest two minutes of my life.
Could I possibly give a shit about facebook right now? I have lame-ass robbers to worry about.
