We really need a 24X7 rock channel. First MTV started and gave into Bollywood. Then VH1 began and they went pop… and rap and RnRs…
We really need a hardcore Rock TV where,
Legends can come back alive,
Cult of freedom can thrive,
Where Taylor Swift can go else where to cry,
And hang all the Bielebers to dry…
Where Nicky Minaj can understand black people cannot be blonde and she doesn’t have to try!
Let there be a world where no one has to sing “Girl let me love you.. until you learn to love yourself”
For it wants me to throw up all morning and ask you to go fuck yourself.
There are rock stars on the road with a decade old guitar and singing their last with a hope to last, and there are producers who spend to learn “Friday Friday, then Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards!”.
People aspire to be Rock stars. Not Rapstars or Bluestars.
Lets the kids be raised to a song that has deep words and not just three words.
If you want to give them a better planet to live… please, first give them a reason to live.
Lately I have been asked by a lot of my friends to get married and “Settle down” in life. Some excerpts…
“Karthik, you need to get married. I’m serious”
“Karthik, it’s high time you got married. Couple’ a years and you’ll have a beautiful kid”
“Dude, you are the only one left. Better get married soon.”
So I did this research to back up some of my reasons to not get married and not have kids. I’ve had this tag line for more than 2 years now – “Save the earth – No more kids for 10 years”. I have successfully passed 2 years. So have some people who I know.
Now, let me tell you the importance of that tag line. I wrote this first thinking… may be it will get you to think. May be it will get you to join this league. May be it will do good to some one.
This is going to be a little long, but please read on.
Reason 1: For the greater good!
Let me explain this with statistics to support my statements.
As of 2007, the average birth rate for the whole world was 20.3 per year per 1000 total population, which for the world population of 6.5 billion (65,000,000,000), comes to 134 million babies per year. This means we humans alone bring in 134,000,000 babies every year. Remember, there are other species that require space too.
And the cost involved in supporting a human being with an average life span is Rs.25,00,000 or USD$50,000. But lets take a very conservative figure and only calculate the cost incurred in a human living for 25 year – Rs.15,00,000/- or USD$30,000 (Most of the cost involved for a human being is in the 1st 25 years, as that covers education, higher food consumption, needs another human’s support at least until 15 years on an average and lot of other stuff).
And the number of people who die every year is only 9.6 per 1000 of world population. Which means only around 62 million is dying. That is less than half of the number of humans born every year. At this rate, first we will end up killing (knowing / unknowingly) all the other species for our survival. Then fight against each other for the survival of the fittest.
Trust me, that way, future is very bleak and as a superior species (as far as we know) we end up achieving nothing.
And having got the opportunity to be the superior species on earth and not utilizing our powers to protect it is unforgivable.
Now lets see, what people interested in babies can do. There are about 100 million orphans in this world (believe it or not) who need care, education, daily food, shelter …a life!
If every adult in this world go by this rule of not having a kid for just 1 year and instead will adopt (literally or virtually) just 1 kid and give him/her a life, the whole world will be… Well, Utopia! (I mean a perfect place. Not quite literally.)
Nowadays you can adopt a kid without even being with him/her, if you like it that way.
But that is too much to expect and literally impractical. However, if we have this as a mission or a goal to support 1 kid that needs us and can make this sacrifice, you will not only have a kid, but will be a Savior! And I said 10 years because; only our generation has to do this. The next one will learn from it.
You can be a savior of this World!
Reason 2: We’ve made this world sick in many ways and it has to be cured. “In fact, I would go as far to say, what this world really needs is a Doctor”. The Doctor would never like it the way it is right now. Every species, every living thing, every life, is as big a miracle as you are!
Reason 3: I prefer a wet T-shirt over a wet diaper any day
To conclude, I’m not asking all of you to not get married. Go ahead and get married if that’s what you like, but think about saving a kid rather than having one. And being married is a pain anyway
This is the way I like it and I would appreciate if you don’t force or keep telling people who are single and like it that way to marry and follow the road to doom!
P.S: Sorry if the last line sounds too rude, as long as you get the point, I’m happy
Hi there people, haven’t posted for a long time. Today, I found a cool post in Daily Galaxy. Researchers on the brink of creating Beer that fights cancer and Heart Disease. What could be a better discovery that this? All my praise to those researchers.
Join hands with me and fight cancer. “Lets drink our way to eradicate cancer”.
I read about this article in Daily Galaxy news. Its a pretty awesome site for daily update on whats happening in the universe. So here, the Institute for the Future is inviting the world to play Superstruct,the worlds first massively multi-player forecasting game. It’s not just about envisioning the future—it’s about inventing the future, creating superstructures to solve and counter super threats facing the planet.
It seems based on an year long Super-computer simulation, the Global Extinction Awareness System (GEAS) has reset the “survival horizon” for Homo sapiens from “indefinite” to 23 years. Yea… 23 years! The GEAS president Audrey Chen said “The survival horizon identifies the point in time after which a threatened population is expected to experience a catastrophic collapse, is the point from which it a species is unlikely to recover. By identifying a survival horizon of 2042, GEAS has given human civilization a definite deadline for making substantive changes to planet and practices.”
Well, 2042 is definitely not the end of the world for us. Obviously. But, it does emphasizes in changing our daily practices towards the environment. So definitely somewhere down the line, the human race will be extinct just like any other species. But, may that be in millions or billions and not just a few thousands. Even the Dinosaurs managed 88 million years of survival before, being supposedly hit by a meteor. We are only 200,000 years old!
