I have already ventured forth into the world this morning having been rudely awakened by the telephone at 08.45 hours, customers!!!!!
Currently listening to “National Express” by the Divine Comedy, gotta love a song that contains the line “but it’s hard to get by when your arse is the size of a small country”.
Last week I was very pleased to attain the title “Omnicide” on MW3, I was even more pleased in the method I attained it. It is attained by killing every member of the enemy team in under 10 seconds. Now this could be achieved with an air drop or moab etc but I actually achieved it with a G36C assault rifle on village on Kill Confirmed with bullets. Go Bagsta:)
That said it got me wondering as to the word itself, “Omnicide” and looking into what it actually means in the real world.
Omnicide :- an extension of the concepts of suicide and genocide. It means the death of all, the total negation and destruction of all life.
Can you imagine omnicide, no people, no animals or insects, no bird song or fish in the sea, nobody to witness the sun breaking the horizon or feel the cooling rains on a tropical isle. Nothing left alive.
It is a terrible thing to contemplate but if I'm honest we are not that far away from it.
You only need to turn on the idiot box or pick up a newspaper to see the problems that are taking us ever closer to the threat of omnicide.
Countries in the middle east are developing the ability to build nuclear weapons and it is this I believe that the biggest threat of omnicide stems from.
In 1955 Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell, issued a Manifesto in which they said: “Here, then, is the problem which we present to you, stark and dreadful and inescapable: Shall we put an end to the human race; or shall mankind renounce war?” Those are our choices, made necessary by the creation and threat of nuclear weapons.”
As a race of people we haven't really done too well have we, I mean in the blink of an eye of the cosmic clock we have produced human civilisation, created a self awareness and an awareness of the vastness of the universe and in an even smaller time frame we have managed to produce the means to end it all in a blinding flash of light. Well yaboo sucks to that.
Right then now Ive got that off my chest in other news, work was work England beat France in the six nations match of the tournament so far and it has left me with no finger nails. A brilliant display of rugby from both teams.
And so we arrive at today’s drivel portion of the blog, If your going to do stupid things at least do them with enthusiasm and in the words of Napoleon “The best way to keep one's word is not to give it.”
