I have been asked by one of my dear readers in internets language:

In short: I went offline. Yes, it is pretty hard to believe but there is a world out there beside the “internets” . It is pretty scary and mostly immensely dull but they say when you grow up you spend most of your time there. Especially when you end up in a dead end job like I did almost two whole years ago where there are miles and miles of net cables but they might as well be used to play tug-of-war or tying us to our chairs so we could not stand up from our stations ever because no matter how much you tinkered around with the proxy you will never be able to connect to the world wide web. So I was forced to kick the habit because between work-work-school-work and some occasional sleeping I really had no time to update my online life.

Until today! First off I no longer have my booooooring job (has anyone else noticed how boring it is to hold down ‘o’ when typing boring like that?). I am currently on a hunt for an exciting and inspiring job. I bought my shotguns and bazookas and released the hounds and now I hope that if any prospective employers would read this would not run scared in the other direction.

I realized that the internet is not the same place without my constant blogging and general messing around on other people’s walls and twitting my cycling trips so I switched myself back to online mode.

So what is to come?

Cycling coz I still love it. My knee not so much however but I refuse to let the knee waggle the Tityti.

General whining due to school. Some of you already know that I am majoring new and social media in college and that I am not exactly the number one fan of studying (senseless stuff like humanetology because courses on web 2.0 are actually interesting however too darn rare). Next year I am doing my thesis paper and I am supposed to do some serious research after choosing the topic: The Friendship Between Facebook and Politics. I have every intention on sharing some fun and not so fun trivia with you guys once the project is progressing. So far the only progress I made was to design a logo of sorts:

I am currently brainstorming a street art campaign which will come with an online blast…and I am really hoping that the law is not reading this blog 😀

Uh, and of course politics. When I feel like it because lately I am in a rather apolitical mood. Do not worry though, it is just a phase I am going through every once in a while when I get slapped in the face by the harsh reality of the fact that  my vote worths nothing. I should get back into my naive state in no time and get worked up by stupid politics again.

These were the results of the poll taken by TIME among their readers….whose opinion apparently does not remotely  matter to TIME as the winner of 2010’s Person of the Year is (*drum roll*) Mark ‘I get your private info and sell it’ Zuckerberg. Yes, Mr. #10 with 18353 votes. David Cameron got more votes than the ‘guy who connects the world’, heck even Steve Jobs ranked above him and he is really not famous about being loved by many.

This whole thing reminded me of what my grandfather used to say:

“Until one does not know tyranny one has no darn clue of what freedom really is.”

I just read something peculiar today and if this is true we have the BEST police force on the entire planet, oh wait, no the whole galaxy! Seriously!…not.csihu

Hungary’s finest – that would be the coppers – said in a definite tone that the gun that was used during the shooting of a Roma (Gypsy) woman and her child was the same gun that was used at two other shootings of Romas. So why was I a bit sceptic? Me who has been watching almost every single CSI episodes ever created? Because the gun in question is a shotgun. For those of you who have no idea why this is significant: CSIs ID a gun from the striae/groove on the bullet after it has passed through the barrel of the gun. A shotgun shoots out pellets and there is absolutely no way of identifying which gun it has been fired out from. (more…)

I am slowly recharging. Hurray! This means soon I will have enough energy to spam the net constantly with my looooong ramblings. But first, let’s make that little backlog disappear. I have promised you pictures of the continuation of the April 5th protests so here they are.

About 1500 people gathered in front of the Parlament 5th April demanding new elections...as usual they were ignored

Have you ever tried to anticipate the next move of an irrational person? It only gives you a headache, doesn’t it? And unless you are irrational yourself or a brainiac like John Nash you have no chance to succeed.

Lately one of my favourite past-time activities is watching poor political analysts trying to guess the next step of MSZP, SZDSZ, GyurcsĂĄny and Bajnai. The only defining rational in the thought process of said two parties’ and the ‘dynamic duo’s is to hold onto power as strong as possible. But analysts always have a compulsory disorder to try and find the underlying issues that make a political system move. It is immensely funny to watch them try to figure out some conspiracy going on behind the scenes. Perhaps they are right but I lean more towards the wisdom that ‘commies never have any idea of what they are doing’. (more…)

Here we go. One more reason I can call SZDSZ a bunch of spineless cowards. They said yes to Gordon Bajnai. Yet again the will of The People is ignored in Hungary.

Weasel turned Devil, Bajnai our new PM (well a very likely one as of now)

The left-wing has this crazy idea to make the people suffer for what they and the banks have messed up. They knew they needed a butcher, a soulless, spineless man who believes that what he is doing – no matter how many demonstrations were to come – is for the good of the people (even if it isn’t). In this sentiment, Gordon Bajnai is the perfect man for the job. He is a good buddy of many man currently at power, a businessman who made his big break during the times of privatisation (like many of the political elite in Hungary). (more…)

GĂĄbor Ocskay Jr.

GĂĄbor Ocskay Jr.

A few days ago the news of Gabor Ocskay Jr.’s death shocked our little country. Ocskay had a major role in our ice hockey team finally making into division A. He was Hungarian Champion 9 times, on the National Team 187 times, 3 times player of the year and collected many more titles. He was only 34.

He was diagnosed with a heart condition a couple of years ago but after a few months rest his doctor let him back on the rink. Two days ago he died of a heart attack 😩

I hope the guys will win a couple of matches for him in the division to honour his memory. It is going to be hard without Ocskay but they are tough, I know they can do it. MKB VeszprĂ©m, the late Marian Cozma’s team, already proved that it is possible as they won all but one of their matches in the handball EC since their team-mate has passed away.
