Once again , life reaches out and touches me.

Ive been called away on work for the next two-three weeks.  I will be unable to update this blog as a result , yet I will start posting again as soon as I am able. 

Remember kids , money is not everything - quality of life is soooo much more important.  Work to live , do not ever live to work.

Go and get laid for me!  Godspeed.

Violence spreads to Greece

A strike in Athens by protesters demonstrating against austerity measures turns violent as tear gas is used to disperse the crowd and molotov cocktails are thrown in retaliation. 

In other world news :

Iranian warships enter the Suez canal on their way to the Mediterranean for the first time in a long time.  This demonstrates the regimes boldness and rising sense of power.

Demonstrations have happened in Bahrain with the army firing upon the 'peaceful' protestors.

The protest sentiment has spread from Egypt across the middle east , the latest is a demonstration in Tehran , Iran.

This last video i found really interesting because it depicts the lengths drug smugglers will go to move their products.  Creative at the least!

Religious violence erupts in Indonesia.

New day in Egypt

Undoubtedly the protesters feel a sense of success as the former president of Egypt steps down.  Was the violence really effective?  Was even one human life worth the result they gained?  The chaos that reigned in Egypt definitely brought International attention to the plight of the people and created immense diplomatic pressure on the ruling regime , yet was this the best course of action?

The historic city of Cairo bears the scars of the peoples revolt , but it will all fade.

While the unofficial death toll sits at 300 lives , some say it could easily be 2-3 times more:

While i applaud the people of Egypt for demanding what their hearts tell them is right , i only hope they honestly get what they wanted and not some sham sense of appeasement.
