Brainwashed

Three good cups of coffee and a hudred Internet articles – that's what kept me awake the whole night. Now, how did I end up like this…

started off by looking at the University of Westminster's website
> thought I'd write something in Chinese for a change and started looking for pictures to illustrate the previous blog post to make up for the petty word count
> googled 'Russia China' and somehow found this picture from a user's livejournal
> read that and followed a link on it and read another livejournal, left a comment
> drifted smoothly to the Russianized Google, followed the links to weekly publications and online news websites
> spotted an article about obese people, gay people trying to get married, a French person who made friends with his transplated hands, went to a 'buddy-website' on a link
> read about the top 10 wealthy people in Russia (most of which aren't really Russian), "12 Things to say to women" (no comments), virus in mobile phones (I probably have got myself one – when I was in London in December someone tried to send me something via bluetooth and the same happened recently in Leamington, had to switch my phone off!), then switched to another website
> read about the explorations of Saturn (by Cassini) and proving Einstein's theory (by Gravity Probe B) in cosmos, also about the survivers of the tsunami seeing ghosts, yet another website

> screen adoptation of Bulgakov's Master and Margarita and the Church's protests againt it; brought up nostalgic feelings and Amazone'd and then Yandex'ed the book, but couldn't find anything pleasing
> read another article-review on a French theologist's book about Virgin Mary and her virginity and the overall significance of Mary, tried to find the book in Warwick library and not surprisingly failed.
> spotted another article about Kant and read through his biography and some quotes of his works. Googled for his quotes in English, but dissapointingly found only four of them.
> saw a disturbing picture of an exhumed lama whose body wouldn't rotten and read the whole article. Apparently the lama had given his body as a present to the rest and as a proof of accessibility of the state of Nirvana.
> realized it's 7 in the morning and the buses have recommenced the service.

And I shall now depart to bed. As Kant put it 'Thinking is talking and listening to oneself'. I'll go do that.

  1. Blimey. It is really strange how the mind works and how you can drift across the internet. It can be truely adictive.

  2. Years ago I heard some old woman from Australia discovered Internet chatting for her amusement and went on for 60 hours straight chatting to different people until she got totally dehydrated and fainted. Internet gives you unlimited experience and access to various information. It can keep you entertained for days and months and ages.
