Ultimate Stupidity

I’ ve been living in this part of the sphere for almost 5 years now and what I have been trying to do so far and will keep doing it, is discovering the Canadian culture and society as much as I could. In order to do that I stay away from my native people so far that I only know a few of them, not even more than 5. I haven't left the country since but I still don’t understand this stupid people of here! The people who were born and grown in this country. Anyway It has been fucking so hot in past few days. Something between 20˚ C and 25˚ C and that’s what I hate the most, esp. in the fall while these stupid assholes say, everyday on the fucking radio or TV “… It was beautiful today”! What the fuck is really beautiful? September is over and I don’t remember many rainy days except the Fri. I was driving to the airport to fly to B. C. Don’t you fucking animals understand that this is one of the many disadvantages of global warming? Are you just fucking stupid animals who only thi

Racism (2)

Ali G. called and showed up just the night before I flew to B. C. and we went to The Cheesecake Cafe . Actually he had asked me before how it was and I have told him that's a nice but expensive place to eat. Surprisingly the restaurant was very busy and most of the tables were occupied so we waited for a few min. to be sited. Ali G. ordered a kind of sandwich and I had a cup of coffee. Then he ordered one slice of lime cheesecake as we went actually there to taste their cheese cake! I've had Safeway 's cheese cake several times, even the frozen ones you get from Superstore has been tried by me, but the lime cheesecake we had was totally different. That little slice cost more than $7 ! Then we went to the Future Shop nearby to check their sale on laptops. I was introduced by a friend to a Toshiba laptop which was on sale for $799. I went to customer service to apply for a Future Shop credit card so I can pay monthly. There was a gorgeous blond Canadian girl with deep

Stanley Park

In the afternoon of last Sat. we went to Stanley Park , a very beautiful peninsula in Vancouver comprising different beaches. It has also food bars and a outdoor pool but the pool was closed at the time. There were still people enjoying the sands and sun but there were a very few of them. We had our lunch which was mostly fish and chips and then we went to a kind of stage where live music was goin ’ on and people were dancing. Weed was being smelled everywhere! That was a group of Hippie people who were enjoying themselves. Amongst them there were some ordinary people as well. Then we took the trial and headed to English Bay . Roller skaters and bikers were enjoying the last sunny days of Vancouver and also hikers and runners. There were blackberry bushes beside the trail but the ripe ones were out of reach. Painters and craftsmen were presenting their works. This is very common in holidays and weekends in Canada , when you go to the walking streets or street festivals and exhibit

Grouse Mountain

we all hopped in the Mazda van of my cousin's family and drove to North Vancouver on Sat. morning. It's a very comfortable and roomy vehicle, ideal for big a family. There were 7 of us including me and we all sat really relaxed. North Vancouver which is considered a different city, of course is a bit far from the city my cousin’s family lives and that's Coquitlam . I guess it's about 30 Km. But it's highway all the way and there was no traffic in that beautiful morning of Sep. We went to Grouse Mountain . It’s actually a combination of a few peaks together and is the highest place in Vancouver . We took the gondola and went up all the way to the only station. This one compare to the one I previously rode is huge. The Banff ’s only takes 4 people seated but this one carries about 40 people standing. It’s so smooth and takes about 7 min. to reaches up there. You can see all Vancouver , the harbor, the ocean and everything. It’s very beautiful. Then up there yo

Diverse Aftershock

I’m back to Calgary after spending my weekend with my relatives in beautiful British Colombia . I had such a good time and they were all very nice to me. They took me to different places and that was so much fun. I’ll write about them later. But today I was so depressed. When you spend a few days with the people who like you and you like them, you eat together, you laugh together and you have good time, it’s very hard to go back to your small apartment, lonely. But a few things were actually kind of very shocking to me. First of all the way my cousin and her family lives was surprising to me. They live in a very big and beautiful house which I have no idea how much it worth but I guarantee it's not less than $800,000 , and that's the minimum. It has 4 bedrooms, a den and a big living room, dining room, entertainment room, this room, that room and all the rooms which a luxury, modern house might has. The appliances, furniture and ornamental things I saw over there were not

Early Bird

It's 5 to 06:00 AM now and I didn't sleep well last night. Just got up early to check if anything deposited to my account or not and it is. I checked it late last night but there was nothing there and I was goin' to call payroll today but there's no need for that now. The damn apartment is cold. It's 2˚ C now and wind chill make it -3˚ C . Fall is here and it started raining the day before and started snowing in Banff and Jasper national parks yesterday. I'm starting early today as I'm flying to B. C. right after work. I'm goin' there to see relatives and freinds, probably.

NDP

I was goin’ to join NDP a few days ago, right after I read what Jack Layton has recently said about Canadian Forces mission in fucking Afghanistan . “This is the wrong mission for Canada” Layton said. I truly believe in that. If you look at the history of Canadian Forces involvement in the world’s conflicts, you’ll see that they were there only when there was a peacekeeping mission was in process. They’ve never faced enemy directly especially Barbarian s like fucking Taliban and Al-Qaeda who are being supported by fucking Pakistanis and Arabs . When I see the funerals where parents of young Canadian men and women are hugging each other and weeping, I feel really bad. But what surprises me is why none of these people oppose? They, I think don’t know who really fucking Afghans are. They sacrifice their young human sources for people who deserve nothing but death with torture. Those animals started a war in 1979 and are still fucking fighting against each other. Why the fuck d

Domestic Massacre

Image
All the media across Canada have been covering the 5th anniversary of 9/11 massacre for more than a week and yesterday they reached the climax. The day the world has changed by the real US government. The good thing is CBC directly mentioned the doubts about who’s really behind that mass murder and referred to the short documentary I mentioned earlier in a post, Loose Change . But the papers I looked at and other TV channels I access to said nothing about the truth. They all want to keep the people fool. I strongly believe that the ones who run the puppets of the US government, the same people who killed John F. Kennedy and the people who really govern that nation, wrote and directed that scenario. They killed innocent people from 151 different nations, including Americans in their own country and blamed Al-Qaeda so they can do whatever they wanna do. This is not the first time that dirty politicians slaughter innocent people for their purposes. In 1979 Rex movie theatre in

Horrifying Nightmare

Damn! I had a horrible nightmare last night. Ali G. dropped me off as I spent the whole afternoon at his place, helping him with his flooring and all I did was had a bath, talked to a few friends, watched The National , had some fruit and went to bed at about 01:15 AM! And then the damn nightmare hit me and was bothering me all night (Or better to say all day!) long. Every time I had nightmares it’s all about the school, being stressed out, tough instructors, hard exams, the process I was through to be graduated and all that mental pressure I was under! It has happened a few times before but only when I’m very tired or had too much for my dinner. I really don’t know what the reason for this one was!

Crab

Image
I and Hodani went to a Superstore Sat. night to get crab for our dinner. It’s an expensive meet but compare to lobster it’s actually half price! You can get them live while their claws are kept tight by elastic bands. The first one Hodani chose was a very big one and about 1.3 Kg and the other one a little more than 930 g . We needed a big pot because the way you cook crab is basically boiling it in a tub. So we headed Wal-Mart to find something that helps. All the kitchen appliances we found over there, were expensive and I would not use them very often. Therefore I bought an oval-shaped container for just over $11. The easy part of the process is cooking it because all you do is you take the legs and claws off, clean inside the body from guts and put it in the boiling water. It took about 20 min. to be cooked. Then the hard part of the game started. Hodani used a nut-cracker I gave him to break the guard-like skin of the crabs and take the meat out. I fired three eggs and w

Muscle Strain

I kind of overloaded me in the gym with all that jugging, weigh-lifting and power cycling, last week. Then I really felt bad all Fri. and Sat. and decided to see a physician because I thought that’s my heart bothering me. But I also thought: That couldn’t be it because I'm not new to work out and exercise. I've being doin' that for years. But how about aging? Anyway after hours of lying on the couch I went to 8th and 8th Clinic and there was a very nice Canadian young man, the doctor. He explained to me that two things could have happened: 1- Damage to the heart, which was very unlikely according to the symptoms he found. 2- A muscle strain. He then ordered one of the nurses to take blood samples from me and he said if there’s something wrong, he’d give me a call at about 08:30 PM. That was almost 18:00 at that time. He already checked the electrocardiograph result and said that he didn't see anything that could be harmful. Then he prescribed a ki

Poverty

Have you ever felt poverty? I mean being really poor. It has happened to me three times so far. And the last time is surprisingly today! The first time was when I was just graduated from the university and was looking for a job. I was completely broke! Thanks to my parents! At least I had somewhere to spend the night in! Luckily I found a job in about 2 months. That was a relief. The second one was totally different and that was in summer of 2003, I guess. I had a nasal surgery and was on sick leave. In a case like that you would only get paid 60% of your wage (I think it has been increased to 90% recently but not quite sure) and the wage would come to you a little late for a reason that I don’t remember, may be as a result of paperwork. I remember I had almost nothing to eat a day. I went to a kitchen cabinets and found some spaghetti. That one was my roommate’s. I was not kind of a person who live his life based on credit cards on those days, unlike now! So I just boiled them and h

Hobby

It’s been five years since those attacks were lunched on the US soil but seems people like to use that in almost everything of their daily life, something as a hobby. You know how some people smoke everyday or booze themselves or - being a little moderate - exercise or read a book. 9/11 and all those fake stories are some peoples’ daily amusement. Everyone now knows that all that has done by the US Government and Al-Qaeda , Taliban and all those motherfucker, Arab , Pakistani and Afghan criminals have been  supported, trained and supplied by Americans . But in a way some people like to fool themselves and stick to stupid stinky craps like miracle, religion, faith, bible, the Lord (!!) and all that kind of shit which is even less useful than somebody’s poop in toilet. CBC had a report on 9/11 tonight and in that Peter Mansbridge was interviewing a Canadian guy who’s believed to be one of the few survivors of 9/11 in southern tower of World Trade Centre in New York City .

Emergency Calls

I always wondered how everyone’s emergency call all around North America , a vast area with a population of more than 300 million can be directed. No matter where you are and what you need, in terms of emergency, you only dial one number and that is 911 . So I thought it’s better to find out ‘cause I don’t wanna leave anything unsolved and uncertain for me. I waited until an opportunity popped up and it happened in the previous place where I used to live with a big, noisy family. Once I was at home and I heard them yelling and shouting. It was getting worse and sounded like they were beating on each other! I was really enjoying that because they never cared about their neighbour. Then the kids joined them and they started crying very loudly and they were howling and screaming. Obviously the parents were beating the shit of each other and the kids were worried. So what I did was I just grabbed the phone and dialled 911 ! I started reporting on them and told what was goin’ on. The guy

Tequila

We went to Tequila Sat night. That’s what P. M. wanted. He even paid for me. The admission is $7 . And I was actually surprised because he usually avoids spending money in that way. I’m not saying that he’s stingy. He just doesn’t spend money. I think most of the money he earned in summer is saved ‘cause he doesn’t pay rent, has no car and obviously no insurance, gas and maintenance and no other expenses as well. Anyway I didn’t like the way they treated us at the door. They searched us and the guy was doing that very roughly. But the club is great. It’s basically a club for teenagers. Full of young and sexy girls and of course handsome young guys (I'm not gay!). There were a very load music playing and lights were flashing. It was very exciting. Boys and girls were using buckets and squirt guns and almost everyone got wet. But I was exhausted as I just went there after I had finished in the gym. I stayed for a while, had a beer and as I was tired, I called P. M. and left. He

Perfectionism

The woman whom I work with in my new job and I’m goin’ take over her job is an Indian lady but unorganized. Her desk is a mess. You can find everything in it: from parts, pen caps and tea paper cups to invoices, item orders and catalogues! The woman is pregnant and is waiting for her twin boys and I wonder if she’s like this at home. She could be ‘cause Indians are not really clean and tidy people. Besides the way you work and behave in your workplace pretty much reflects your character and attributes. So either this is a stupid, dirty and lazy woman or that’s just because her belly is so big and makes her almost incapable of doin’ what a normal person does, that bothers me. The software that is being used is an old one, prob. from the 80s and many of the functions are ineffective or left untouched. The stupid big woman doesn’t even want to contact the company to have the software fixed and updated. So I told me that I change the whole system in a way that you wouldn’t recognize an

Dinosaur Juice

I read something really catchy in the last issue of Opulence when I was on a bike in Talisman the other day. I started going to gym every other day instead of only weekends which has never been more than 2 days. I’m trying to adjust my weigh, gain more muscle and get to that record of 2.4 Km in less than 11 min. I’m pretty close to that. But what I found interesting in that magazine was a short article about hybrid automobiles, esp. Prius and how it not only helps you to save lots of money but also helps the environment. The article says North Americans finally listen to what has been concern of the guys across Pacific Ocean . But is the emission really harmful to our planet or is that a trick by them to sell more cars to us?! Al Gore says yes. Our planet is in danger and warns us of global warning as a result of greenhouse gases and we know that the said gases are partially generated by vehicles. But recent studies show that ozone layer is being recovered but of course takes
