I don’t know why but lately I keep finding these little Truman Show tidbits in the news that just make me laugh quietly to myself.
Like the latest great news from Brazil: a new “ultra-deep” oil field called Tupi that will bring unimaginable riches.
Do you get it? Tupi? Future Riches? A Rich past? Field of dreams? Look at how other oil producers are doing great? No blood for oil kind of theme?
The nation of the future!
I just watched a documentary on Wernher von Braun.
How many people in the world think that they should thank a good ol’ Nazi for their cable TV and cell phones?
It’s not really that history repeats itself, it’s just that nobody really knows what the heck is going on and at the end it all looks the same.
This week marked the end of my controversial boycott on French products.
All because of little Sarko and his phony speech in congress. Don’t be a sissy, watch the whole thing.
Yes! We liberated you little Sarko. I might not agree with about half of what you say but of course we can be friends again! We did keep von Braun after all, nobody is perfect!
And to think that people were sure that the real cause of that brouhaha was Bush.
Also this week I attended a talk given by Will Wright. He is the guy who created SimCity and many other Sim games since then.
There is nothing better than watching pure intelligence in action. The guy is like a popcorn machine of ideas. He made Myrmecology (the study of ants) the most interesting topic ever.
That is why I am an optimist.
Yes, we might be in our majority a bunch of silly monkeys who keep trying to kill each other and steal whatever it’s not ours. But the very few of us who can actually think can think great things.
Great things and great ideas can transform the world. They can turn a Nazi in a American hero, a big nose little French men in a giant. Maybe one day they can even teach all the stupid monkeys to behave without a leash called government around their necks.
Liberté, Liberté, Liberté!
