...Mad World...

Nothing ceases to amaze me anymore.

Did anyone see the video of the 2 year old girl being run over in China? If not, YouTube it, but viewer beware, you're in for a scare. It's horrible.

The jist is; a little girl is walking along a busy market-type area and a truck runs her down - running her over completely. He stops, then floors it, running her over yet again with his rear tyres.

The most shocking part of this CCTV camera footage is what happens next, as if what just happened wasn't bad enough! Passers by simply look at the 2 year old girl in a pool of her own blood, and continue walking. Traffic simply goes around her... till another large truck runs over her legs, spattering even more blood on to the road.

Eventually, a lady comes along and drags the bloodied 2 year old to the side of the road - then fetches the baby girls mother.

We later learn that the innocent 2 year old girl was brain dead and died, slowly, in pain, of her horrific injuries.

Now, what the FUCK is going on here! Look in to it, and you find the disturbing truth. Apparently, the Chinese don't like having girls. They are not seen as strong, and are seen as a burden. Nobody cares.

The two drivers are later arrested. The driver who initially struck the girl, in interview, said; "She wasn't looking where she was going, I was on the phone. I was going to get out and help her, but then I saw the blood. So I floored it as nobody was around. If she died, I only have to pay 32,000 yuan, otherwise I may have had to pay hundreds of thousands".

All this, in my opinion, sums up the world we live in today. It's not about life, its about currency. It's not blood, its money.

I know this isn't a rhyme, but this had to be done. Maybe this is a new slant for the Lyrical Poet? Or am I going back to my broader roots...?

Time will tell.

...Rest In Peace - Steve Jobs - 1955-2011...

A legend has passed away, and has left in his wake a gaping hole in the tech world. Steve Jobs changed the world. He changed the way we do things, and made the world so much better than it once was. I'd like to take this opportunity to say "Thank You" to Steve, you really were the worlds greatest innovator.

"Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish..."

Rest In Peace, you will never be forgotten.
