People doing long waiting lines to buy the newest iPhone. The world must be really a fucked up place if a little expensive machine equals happiness.



Unfortunately the world IS a really fucked up place...
when I see all those people outside the Apple stores on TV I feel sick for them  :( :smth009
There's nothing left but hope...

Oh my, some people stand in long lines to get an Iphone or JK Rowling's new book...
Different people have different needs!
Some people even travel across Europe to see the Cure! (Which I done too at times, other people might find this unnecessary, ridiculous etc.)
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...

a colleague at work couldn't believe when I payed more than 100 £ to see The Cure at the RAH last year.  Of course people have different needs. But I think there's a difference between passionate of the music and passionate of a toy. Not that I think I am a better because of that.

i remember your compatriot Nietzsche once said "life without music is an error". Hopefully, I have not heard of anyone saying something like that of an iPhone ;)

I grew up in the days when to call someone, you had to go out and get to the phone booth. And it was supposed to be an important cause - otherwise why would you overcome these half a kilometer before the end of the street to make a f****** phone call?

It's strange from today's perspective,but it's true.We had no phone until 1990 and I remember
that I lost a girlfriend a year earlier because I was reluctant to call her on the phone. :oops:
Meanwhile I have a simple mobile phone without the previously mentioned smart functions.
People just love to communicate,but I still have my doubts about fb and others.
Notre esprit ne supporte pas un degré trop
élevé de précision, et nous avons plus de joie
dans l'indéfini: de là, la puissance de l'amour et
de musique; de là, les mystagogies hallucinantes.
