What is wrong with us?

First things first. I am severly pissed off about the government making it compulsary for shops in Mumbai to have their names on the boards written in Marathi. What the fuck is this? Sure this is supposed to make life easier for people who can’t read english, but what about places like Barista, Cafe Coffee Day or your average gaming/internet cafe? Those places can’t and rather, don’t want to cater to people who cant read english. I mean come on, how the fuck can a non-english speaking guy surf the internet, or order coffee from the english menus in the coffee shops, or play games? Please don’t tell me that the government’s next course of action is to either localize or shut down the import of video games and shutting off access to the internet just because some people were too retarded/poor/lazy to learn how to read/write/speak english? If this happens, say goodbye to the thought of India ever getting on the international map.
Now, for more serious criticism about our fair city.

Over the course of this week, I just realized something which I failed to realize for the past eighteen years of my life.
Mumbai is full of hyppocrites.
As my regular readers know (that’s right, all three of you), I was at I-Rock this saturday and it was the most mother-fucking awesome concert of my life. The lineup was an awesome mix-and-match of bands from different areas with my favorite performance being the non-contesting awesomeness of Zero. Anyways, this was to be Zero’s final performance and guess what? Just because it was 10:30 PM, the police decided to do something useful (they’d like to think so) with their lives and stopped the final performance. Its alright, just obeying the law, right?
Wrong. Now we have the utterly useless holiday of Ganpati or whatever the fuck it’s called and I’m trying to keep myself from going on a homicidal rampage from all the crap garba music playing outside my house at 12:30 am. What the fuck people? Arent the cops supposed to stop that? Are people taking home some clay idols THAT much more important than getting some sleep? Religion is destroying us people.
Which brings me to another point.
Religion is destroying us. Yeah, it is. I mean every religions holiday, we have noise, pollution, unrequired expenditure on shit that’s gonna be taken down in two days. Wouldnt that money have been better spent on some charity? Or how about making the roads here better? I seriously fear the time when religion becomes compulsary. Imagine school teaching children that evolution is a lie and that creationism is the truth? Do we really want to live in a place like that? Let our children study in schools like that?
I would like some people performing a massive social experiment. Put some atheists/agnostics on an island and see how long it takes for them to become independant and successful. This would truly make a noticable dent in the facade that is religion.
With that out of the way,

EVERYDAY SHOOTER KICKS ASS! Expect a review by tomorrow or something. 😉
