Part One

In some place, in any old world at any paradoxical moment this story could be told. It is tale of a game played by all races, creeds and shapes of ears. What is the game? The game, is of course Blood Bowl and here and now, I’ll shall endeavour to explain an event in a fictional  time, in a fictional world in all our minds; if we choose to embrace it.
As a battle raged across a large bowl shaped valley with a large indented flat field at its centre and after days of bloodshed, the two great armies of blood thirsty warriors grew tired of the constant slaughter and so, it was decided a parley between leaders was the only way to end the endless deadlock.
A  leader of a small Orc war band wondered how long it would be before he could get back to the wholesale slaughter. As he leant back on the old ruin from a long gone more peaceful era, he could see the vultures circle in the deep sky,  as he picked a rather large bogey from the deep recesses of his nasal cavity, his head rested on a domed section of the old ruin.
His stomach rumbled, he saw a worm squirming  in the blood stained earth, Mungk grabbed at it with his stubby  green clawed hand, deep in the ground the worm wriggled his way free from the orc’s grasp, but Mungk had found something hard and smooth deep in the soil. He pushed and then there was a click followed by two louder clicks, the  ground fell away to reveal an archway  hissing as the door slid away from its frame leaving  dank stale air pouring from the entrance........

WHY I'M HERE

Right before anybody reads this it may sound a bit Emo or slightly overdramatic, if it does you’re entitled to your opinion and you may even be right. I have been working on this post for a couple of days trying to put into words my reasoning for blogging. To me at least it’s clear now, so read if ya want, and remember the heart of it is about me and no one else
So here I am blogging away, and for the first proper blog post and thought it would be a good place to start by explaining my idea of setting this page up. I was fine and happy to share my expressions through Facebook posts, but then something changed.
I hurt a friend through some poorly placed words in the real world, which resulted in a FB deletion from two people that without realising, have in one way or another have or had been very important to me. When we do something nihlistic and destructive it makes us take a step back from the better self and deny the interior of ourselves, this becomes the exterior.
Along the way, in one cold and frosty day I lost more than just on- line friends, I also told the tale to others; what I had said. I had phones and doors slammed in my general direction. In one day, old to new friends were out of my life.
Someone had said; they knew how I felt about them. The reality was I was so confused about how I felt and where my loyalties lay.
Another person had said that I knew exactly what I was doing and enjoyed breaking and scratching things.  That’s the underlining point, when something good happens in my life; I go out of my way to destroy it. Funny thing is maybe I am just a fuck up, who in turn likes to fuck things up because that’s what I feel I deserve.
I had no one to talk too and if did, I didn’t want to talk. I tried to express my feelings on FB, for the first time I was aware I was limited by Facebook because whatever I wrote could be read with the wrong impressions given or taken. So I chose to sit in silence and began to understand how much I appreciated expressing myself through my status updates, comical or otherwise. 

A month passed and I accepted my shortcomings in all their glory, and was left with a simple decision. This was, to make a place for myself to express my feelings on whatever I see fit. Rather than deleting people, or creating list's that limited people’s interaction with my facebook account. I made a Blog choice. So here I am blogging away with a degree of freedom, different from what I have known before.

I like philosophy

"Common sense is the most widely shared commodity in the world, for every man is convinced that he is well supplied with it." from RenĂ© Descartes the father of Modern Philosophy   

"I'm not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it." from Niccolo Machiavelli the father of Machiavellianism   


"Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people." Carl Jung, the father of idealism   

“The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.” Ayn Rand, the mother of Objectivism  

"Neither seek nor want the approbation of any human being. It is the desire for approval and praise that enslaves us to the outrageous conventions which form 'the fabric of civilisation' and make us completely unnatural and discontent animals.   From the father of cynicism, Diogenes. 
    
"one original thought is worth a thousand quotes" --- From the father of cynicism, Diogenes. 

Aristotle said that; Democracy is the best of a bad bunch of weak systems. Democracy only functions if there are extremes of wealth and poverty. Everyone should be more a less equal, which is a far cry from where we are now

Sometimes, situations seemingly conspire to prevent us from getting what we want.Other times, we are impeded not by events, but by a more insidious factor: fear.It is much easier to climb a physical hurdle than a psychological hill. If I move my mental furniture, I could achieve something good.

HORAY

So, I have set up my blog, and it's the way I want it to be. I plan to use it often and will enjoy using and building on it.
 A side note for any visitors to my page feel free to comment anonymously or with a name the choice is yours.

World Wide Web brought the Internet to the masses, the most successful companies have been those that collect information about users and use it to sell things. Google, has confirmed that it keeps track of search queries .
Companies are loath to talk about what information they track, but internal compliance manuals for law enforcement for Facebook, Yahoo and Microsoft show that their data collection is much more extensive than users might believe based on what they themselves can access.
Facebook's data collection is among the most detailed.  For every user id, Facebook keeps a log of the IP address that accessed the account, the date and time, and what exactly the user did -- clicking on an advertisement, looking at someone else's profile, posting a photo or sending a message to a friend, etc

I'm happy to leave social networking behind and I don't care whether people choose to read this or not. it's just a good thing that I can express myself without the prying eyes of others. This is my place for me, myself and I.
