WWDC

We went at WWDC today, we had a good time but we were in the rush… I wish I could have seen more, but hey, the show was good.

What world are we living in?

What in the love of God some people are thinking?

This guy, “rapper DMX”, was arrested today in NY for trying “to steal a car in a parking lot at Kennedy Airport”.

And later I read, “he is the first artist to have his first five albums debut on the “Billboard” charts at No. 1.”

WTF? The guy had 5 No1s, he sold millions of records and he has the fucking NEED to steal? It makes you wonder for the QUALITY of some people.

It is ok to steal if you need to EAT. If your family NEEDS TO EAT and you can’t provide that food by any legal means. In that case, stealing a chicken or stealing an apple –to me– is fully justified. But stealing a CAR when you are already a millionaire, is fucking RIDICULOUS.

My family was always about having good beliefs and principles. The *only* time I know that someone from my family stealing something (all 150-200 people living in a spanning of 3 generations), is my grandfather who stole a goat to FEED his army. He was in Albania in 1941 FIGHTING the Mousolini army and he had 25-30 people under his command. Greeks who know some history will remember that these fights took place under snow and cold with the Greeks not even having the basics of equipment (e.g. socks for some). His men were hungry. In the night –legend says– he went in the ITALIAN ARMY’s place, posing as an italian soldier and stole a goat. He brought the goat back to his men safely (about 1 Km away) and they ate (and there was much rejoice 🙂

But that’s one time that “stealing” is justified and you are even getting decorated as a “hero” for doing so.

But having that fucking millionaire over there stealing for fun (or for drugs), the guy deserves to go to prison for having no respect to God or his luck to have become who he is today.

No time

I have literally zero free time lately. I am working day and night on Gnomefiles.org and I am already behind schedule on my osnews stuff.

I did find the time to read Adrianne Curry’s livejournal though. She is the winner of last year’s “America’s next top model” reality show. She says that she has a very hard time finding a job, even after winning the contest “and all these contracts” and she hates how crazy the fashion industry is (“they tell me to lose weight when I am already skinny and much more in shape than other models”). She seems very down to earth and a great person. I hope she can land some jobs.

Galaxy Quest

Watched Galaxy Quest tonight. That is such a funny movie, especially if you are into the Star Trek franchise. Right on the spot!
