It's not that I didn't realize it until now, but it's that I didn't consider how much it affected me personally.

We have a hyperly critical culture. It almost feels like the whole of society has digressed back to a high school mentality- where everyone is looking for any opportunity to tear someone down and point out their weaknesses. To literally "make fun of them" and we get off on it. We watch tv shows and say "She's too fat, she's too skinny, she's not dressed right, he has bad skin, what a loser, I would never do that!" the list goes on, and on.

People are making millions off of this while the rest of us are spending billions. On gossip magazines, by spending our time visiting web sites. By watching tv shows who's main goal is to humiliate people or to judge people.

All that is pretty obvious. But what I just realized is that it fuels my own insecurities. If i'm not perfect, then people will tear me apart. I'm afraid to …

Jaws

This is an ironically fishy story. Four guys were fishing off of "Jaws beach" where Jaws: The revenenge was filmed. Their boat stopped working so two of them jumped in the water to pull it to shore. They then "Dissapeared." I dont know what the other two guys on the boat were doing? It seems strange that two people would both drownd?

A few days later other people were fishing and caught a huge tiger shark:

"We were going to cut the hook out of his mouth and let him go when he
regurgitated a human foot -- intact from the knee down,"

They cut it open and found the body of one of the guys who had dissapeared a couple days before off Jaws beach. They haven't found the other body, and they don't know if he was alive when he was eaten.. If it was a shark that ate him, and he didn't downd, then what happened to the other guy?

"The hedgehog's dilemma, or sometimes the porcupine dilemma, is an analogy about the challenges of human intimacy. It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share their heat during cold weather. However, once accomplished, they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp quills. They must step away from one another. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur for reasons which they cannot avoid. Both Arthur Schopenhauer and Sigmund Freud have used this situation to describe what they feel is the state an individual will find themselves in relation to others. The hedgehog's dilemma suggests that despite goodwill, human intimacy cannot occur without substantial mutual harm, and what results is cautious behavior and weak relationships. With the hedgehog's dilemma one is recommended to use moderation in the affairs with others both because it is in self-int…

Wow!

And I have been wasting my time on my complicated and apparently overpriced Canon 20D! Why would I want digital when I can go back to film and get to bring it in for prints? Why would I want to be burdened with being able to see the picture I just took, erase it? And keep shooting thousands more?

2 Cameras, 2 rolls of film. 2010.. 10$
