The Iron By Henry Rollins

I believe that the definition of definition is reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself.

Completely.

When I was young I had no sense of myself. All I was, was a product of all the fear and humiliation I suffered. Fear of my parents. The humiliation of teachers calling me “garbage can” and telling me I’d be mowing lawns for a living. And the very real terror of my fellow students. I was threatened and beaten up for the color of my skin and my size. I was skinny and clumsy, and when others would tease me I didn’t run home crying, wondering why.

I knew all too well. I was there to be antagonized. In sports I was laughed at. A spaz. I was pretty good at boxing but only because the rage that filled my every waking moment made me wild and unpredictable. I fought with some strange fury. The other boys thought I was crazy.

15 Actively Practicing Muslims Reveal Their Thoughts And Feelings After The Paris Attacks

November 17, 2015 | 4 Comments » | Topics: Life |

1. Honestly, I feel anger towards my own people. I grew up in the middle east, at a young age I was exposed to the Bullshit ideologies that exist within middle eastern society.

People out there don’t care enough to get up and do something about their withering homes, their lack of funded education, the rise in crime etc. Instead they blame these things on the west, and more specifically Israel.

The guy that chose not to go to college when he had the chance to do so suddenly finds him in the shitty part of town, with 7 kids and drives a cab all day. But when asked why he doesn’t do anything he’ll puff up his chest, square his shoulders and confidently say something along the lines of “it’s America and Israel that fucked us, we Arabs are proud and our time will come”.

The thing that I was exposed to as a child wasn’t religious extremism, it was social elitism. As an Arab myself I can tell you that a huge majority of Arabs living in the middle east sincerely believe that if you’re not one of them then you’re a level below them. I absolutely hate it when apologist Muslims come out of the woods every time a tragic event like this occurs and say “but not all muslims”.

If you live in the middle east and deny what I just said you’re only lying to yourself. It’s a majority of people who have this stupid point of view, and it’s easy to warp their reality into picking up a gun and shooting innocents, or convincing them into suicide bombing themselves in a crowd or bus. When you have a bunch of people who honestly believe they’re better than everyone else, you can make them do whatever the hell you want. Why else would people go willingly join terror organizations?

I mean for fucks sake, we don’t even like eachother. Jordanians, Lebanese, saudis, Iraqis etc etc all hate eachother. And within our own countries we hate eachother and do nothing but show off our blood lines. “I’m from this family, I have more right than you” type mentality actually exists in this day and age.

I honestly don’t blame anyone for thinking negatively of muslims, a lot of people I’ve met in the state I currently live in have never met a muslim, I can’t blame them for thinking that we’re all violent idiots.

Nepal Dog Festival Celebrates And Thanks Dogs For Being Our Loyal Friends

November 11, 2015 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Life |

festival for dogs

Hey, China. This is the type of dog festival that people want to go to. The complete opposite of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, the Tihar Festival celebrates man’s loyal best friend. In Nepal, Hindu citizens designate the festival as a time to shower their dogs with love and attention. You won’t see dogs crammed in cages or animal rights activists protesting, it is all about loving dogs in all their four-legged glory.

The festival comes at a time where all eyes are on another dog-themed festival, China’s Yulin festival, where more than 10,000 dogs are tortured, cooked and served up to festival goers. Yulin has been under intense criticism and protest. Many celebrities have spoke out against the horrible mistreatment of the animals. Comedian, Ricky Gervais, has spoke out extensively about the Yulin, but now he is sharing the joy of the Tihar festival.

How To Start Living The Life You Really Want

October 30, 2015 | No Comments » | Topics: Life |

“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”  — Siddhārtha Gautama

I think we’ve all hit a point in our lives when we realize that our life isn’t the way we want it to be.

Have you? Have you ever wondered, “what am I doing with my life?”

Usually this happens because we coast through some parts of our life, and without realizing it, end up in situations that leave us feeling unsatisfied.

I’m not talking about depression (though this can turn into depression). The feeling is more like a lack of excitement about what you’re doing with your life that manifests itself as a strong dissatisfaction. Life becomes stale. You just feel like your wasting your time, like there are better things out there for you that you just haven’t found. You don’t really know what these things are or how to get them, but you know they exist.

The problem is that you’re afraid to shake things up because you don’t want to ruin what you already have for something that’s unknown.
