Information and knowledge are vital to stop corruption in India. Right to Information surely makes some Indian officials feel burdened, yet stopping corruption is important for everyone in any country.

RSS is hard to miss

RSS readers are actually pre-installed anywhere you look. I found them in Microsoft Outlook 2007, new Internet Explorer browser, and Google Reader. And there’s still Opera and dedicated shareware software…

RSS readers are there to save your browsing time. I know 99% of you already use them, this post is for the remaining 1% of late adopters.

Lamps

Our local municipality put lamps on building entrances. As long as I can remember (20 years)there never were lamps on main entrances.

The most interesting point? People switch them on and off themselves. No one tells them… It might be normal in other countries, but for an ex-Soviet country it’s really astonishing. Welcome to capitalism, market economy and civil society. I love this!

Caviar thoughts

Some say the best vodka is Ukrainian. Some say Bible saved them. Some people refuse to try durian fruit, because of it’s specific odour. We all live in different worlds actually, and are restricted by our ideas and beliefs. No marketing can shift people from these serious life attitudes. Try selling Matryoshka dolls to people who dislike Russia…

Recently I had some caviar, because nice people offered it. And I just couldn’t let them down. However, I still manage to refuse vodka in Ashgabat. I wonder how long my ideas can resist marketing of alcohol.

P.S. Internet tells caviar is halal. Cool!

No motivation

Lately I was forced into so much work, that I lost every bit of motivation left in me. I just wanna sleep for weeks. Alas, life won’t let me anymore. Gotta feed the kids.

My usual remedy is books and movies. Right now I’m in the middle of A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. Suprisingly, sad stories fix me faster. Maybe it’s because own situation is not so bad compared to others’ sad situations.

Average is not for me – Stupid superhuman

When is the last time you saw a 15-year old seriously read Nietzsche? Well, it was me. I found the book on my bookshelf and naturally started reading it. Everything changed: Christian values are implemented in a wrong way? All values have to be re-evaluated? If there’s god – then it’s ME?

Others kids at school were normal, most of them didn’t even read unless forced by school or parents. Now, looking back at the impact of super-human thoughts on my life I just wish I was one of them. And it wasn’t just Nietzsche. Add Medvedev (Barankin be a human), Vartanov (1000 strikes of sword), the Matrix movie to the list. One ends up becoming a super-arrogant jerk with empathy level of a brick wall. I hurt feelings of too many people with my know-it-all…

I decided I could do anything. Authority was stupid, rules existed to get broken, teachers were stupid because they failed real jobs and started teaching, moral values were used just ‘for show’… You get the picture. I never actually quit trying to become a super-human, until I was really hit by a minor injury. Then, finally, my mind accepted the reality. A human can be great, but never a god. Very logical.

Once there was a pharaoh. He refused to believe in God, and declared himself God. And then a tiny fly got to his brain through his nose, and dropped egg mass there. A part of pharaoh’s brain got eaten by larva. The guy ended mental. Probably didn’t appreciate golden statues of himself after that. In 1889 philosopher Nietzsche was caught by serious mental illness as well. Same empty eyes as Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao…

I didn’t use RSS a year ago. Now this thing became important. Everyone is busy, no time to browse blogs… RSS delivers new posts from blogs & sites right to your doorstep. Much like a postman delivers newspapers. Cool huh?

Just install Opera browser, it has pre-installed RSS reader (I’m not sure about other browsers). Then click on the RSS link or icon. Answer Yes to “Do you want to subscribe to this feed”. Done! Enjoy!

‘Need’ versus ‘want’

Even God has brand problems is a post from Chris Houchens, the owner of Shotgun Marketing. He writes about rain… How we all need rain, but some of us want to play golf.

We need air, water, rice. But we don’t enjoy simple life anymore: it has to be TV, coke, chocolate bars. I have a bad feeling about luxury life that I lead. Someday I might have to pay a big price for this…

No focus-lah…

Some journalist thinks that Nahili.com is the perfect place to leave a comment like this:

Attention we found remnants of A.E.Abdarahedov in the Belgorod region, village Churayevo of Shebeykin – in the “Kursk Bulge”. He will be buried on 7th November. Please contact the journalist Maksim Pokutnev…

Any chance that someone will even read comments fore 7th of November, when he will be buried? No! A great warrior of WWII is about to be buried without any representatives from his family. My advice to the “journalist” – contact officials. Market your idea in the right place, so that the “right” people hear you. Shooting randomly on the Internet is the most stupid idea…

Russian version
Вниманию родственников ашхабадца А.Е.Абдарахедова В Белгородской области (село Чураево Шебейкинского района – там где проходила «Курская дуга») найдены останки солдата, в личных вещах которого была найдена винтовочная гильза с запиской, где написано, что его зовут Абдарахедов А. Е., год рождения 1918, проживал в городе Ашхабаде по адресу: ул. Мамедова, дом 4. 7 ноября состоится перезахоронение останков. Если эта информация заинтересовала родственников или представителей Туркменистана, просьба связаться с журналистом Максимом Покутневым по мейлу: max@gtrktv.ru или по телефону в Белгороде: (4722) 32-90-87.
