No Snaggs, I'm not dismissing all of you folks.  

Just most of them.  

I've lived in the US, Korea, Japan, Germany, and Poland.  Each country has its charms and its problems.  I was in the Army twice, and worked in civil service for the Army for a total of 20 years of service to my country. I didn't do it for the money, the travel part was nice, but the main reason I did it is because I believed in the US and wanted to give something back.  When I grew up, there were problems for sure, but I had a good life.  So I decide to repay my good fortune and see some of the world while I was at it.

Having lived almost half of my life in other countries, I have had the opportunity to observe my native land from a distance.  It's hard to see the forest for the trees as it were. So stepping back at a distance gives you a different perspective.  When I go home to visit, I readily see the changes because I don't live there all of the time.   I don't like what I've seen in the last 20 years or so, and I just see it getting worse.  I call the US 'The land of the large'.  Large country, large houses, large vehicles and large people.  When I go back to visit I hear people complaining about this, that and the other thing.  Yet they tell Alexa to buy this or that, put it on their credit card, and get it at their door the next day.  They got to restaurants to eat more often then they cook at home, and when they do cook they buy packaged salad greens, already roasted chickens, and every other form of prepackaged, precooked, pre-digested food that they can get their hands on.  They claim they are too busy to cook because they are working 3 jobs so they can have a TV and computer for every person in their overly large, cheaply built McMansion.  They drive to their jobs in massive 4x4 pick ups and SUVs and they never see a flake of snow or speck of mud.  For recreation they go to the local Wal Mart and buy endless amounts of made in China junk that they don't need and will soon discard. Then they demonize the Chinese communists for paying their workers fifty cents an hour.  They go to Harbor Freight and buy tools that are good for one use and then throw them out and complain that they just don't make shit like they used to.  They elect a narcissistic, sociopathic billionaire president and think that he will help the little people, and 4 years later wonder why the country is a mess.  

Of course those are a lot of generalizations, and not everyone in the US is like that.  But many people are.  They have been sold on the ridiculous idea that god made America so that white people can live lives of pseudo luxury, and think if they can just get a bigger SUV, a bigger house and fill it with more junk, they will be happy.  Because they are bombarded with 'social media influencers', glamourous plastic, fake people showing the masses what the good life looks like.  I find that very sad, but we all make choices.

There are plenty of problems here in Poland, and the rest of the world.  Unfortunately the materialism virus is a pandemic and it's spreading rapidly.  However it originated in the US because at some point the country sold its soul to the gods of money and stuff.  Success is defined by what you have, not what you are.  Even the people that haven't been totally infected by the virus still live in that society, and like the apocryphal boiling frog, they become vulnerable to it without even realizing it.  I don't like it, I don't like being around it and I won't live with it.  Even if I wanted to move back to the US, it would be very difficult.  Because I've been gone so long, I don't have a credit history in the US, so even trying to rent a place to live, get utilities, get a car loan, etc., would be virtually impossible.  Americans live and die by their credit score and I am a non-person because I have no credit.  Silly me for living within my modest means.  

So sorry for offending you and many other fine Americans, that wasn't my intention.  But I can't and I won't live there.  It's a good thing I'm old, because in another 25 years or so much of Europe will become like the US.  Particularly in the former communist countries of central/eastern Europe.  The people here have internet, they watch American films, they see what people to the west have and they want a piece of this fantasyland too.  I have run out of places to hide, even the remote areas of the world are being overrun by tourists and rampant capitalism.  So I will hunker down in my well built, modest, small, but very lovely home and sit in my garden and think about the downfall of civilization as I once knew it.  I feel bad for my daughter and my grand twins and the future they face. But as they say, "It is what it is" and there's not much I can do about it.  My years are numbered and I can't say that I feel too bad about that.  I did what I could to try to make the world a better place in my small way.  The world will be what it will be.  It's too bad that so many wrong choices were made along the way when so many other options were available. 

Like everyone, I walked my path in life, made my choices, and I did it my way and I am very happy about that.  I found my happiness the hard way, from within, through a life of retrospection, observing, and learning. I define myself by what I am, not by what I own.  Of course I'm not the only one that has done this, but I'm pretty sure that we are in the minority. 

If I had to chose a theme song for my life, it would be this classic, it pretty much says it all:

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows
I took the blows
And did it my way

Yes, it was my way

I wouldn't call that a rant, it's a heartfelt and well written chunk of truth.

I've never been to the USA, but I've seen the same shit here in Australia over the last 20-30 years.  During that time I've increasingly lived out of town among the trees and wildlife, stopped meeting friends in bars, and if I can't pay cash for it I don't buy it. I never let my credit card balance get over $1,000. I've paid off my 6 acres + house in fifteen years. My Toyota is 18 years old, and still running fine. (...'cos it's a Toyota.....) Sounds boring but I really enjoy my life. Having a good dog, a big swimming pool, and a friend who owns a second-hand book shop helps.

I know a lot of guys 20 or 30 years younger than me, earning 2-3 times more, who are in debt up to their eyeballs. They have a motorbike, jet ski ( or two), a fishing boat, big truck, nice car for the missus, and a crappily-built fancy new house in the suburbs. They don't actually use the toys that often, their scant time off is spent drinking, gambling, and complaining how fucked life is.

Ed, I'll never get to Poland and you'll never get to Australia, but I just bought you a drink and I'll even drink it for you. (Hope you like Gin&Tonic) Dziekuje.

I wouldn't call it a rant either. and being a native USer, of a similar vintage , having spent a little bit of time outside this country, I agree with most of it. 

20 years ago I woulda said "Fuck you! .....'Murica!!!" and waved my flags and credit cards around... 

But it was 20 years ago or so that I was in Antigua during our "hanging chad" debacle. That was the first time I was ever embarrassed to say where I was from. 

The behavior of our politicians, and the people that put them in place has only gotten worse since. 

This country is now not quite right.... mostly because of the vitriol of the two dominant political parties. Neither one is solely responsible.

Man Joins Navy To Prove The Earth Is Flat, Quickly Finds Out It Isn't

"I have an acquaintance I met in the Navy, who joined specifically so he could see that the Earth was flat while at sea," user TrungusMcTungus wrote of their extremely committed compadre.

"Every day he would chart the ships location, speed, heading, etc, a few times a day so he could make a map of their path. Ultimately he realized that the path the ship was taking would be impossible if the Earth was flat, based on the distance they were traveling vs their speed."

The man apparently became suspicious that the Earth was actually round, but before he could take steps taken by scientists centuries ago and figure it out for himself, his Leading Petty Officer "pointed out the curvature by giving him binoculars and explaining that if the Earth was flat, he should be able to see the land they were making for," the Redditor wrote. "He couldn't see anything off the horizon. After that, he was convinced."

If you're question is "Can they breathe, eat and shit all by themselves and think things disappear after you push them off the bookshelf?"  Then yes, there are many that are that stupid.

Or, in other words, dumber than my cat.

I think you get to the edge, look into the abyss and leap.  Only to find yourself on the opposite edge 1000's of miles away.

It's a curious quirk of physics that is little understood.

This would explain how people claim to "circumnavigate" when in fact they are simply starting over.

*** Oh, and all islands are floating as the esteemed US Senator eloquently explains.  If they were heavy/non-buoyant, they would sink.   Sheish...

I hadn't thought of an infinitely thick cylinder.  You are right. Problem is that if it was an infinite cylinder, we would be squashed like a bug from the gravitational force.  Even with thick cylinders, we would have evolved to look quite different so it becomes total value of weight vs weight change.

If you jump off the edge of a flat earth, just for grins imagine it's an inverted conic shape like something from an old Yes album cover, where do you fall?  You'd die from old age before you would likely hit anything.  And could you survive the impact given weightlessness the deceleration G forces might be minimal?  Or do you just go into orbit?  Surely a conspiracy by NASA and space contractors to get big budgets - when if we just launched from the edge orbital flight would be automatic. :D

I think it takes a certain level of narcissism and other mental illnesses to want to be President, much less believe that you could actually be good at it. Certainly applies to the current and two predecessors.

A pun is the lowest form of wit

It does not tax the brain a bit

One merely take a word that's plain

then picks another that sounds the same

but adds a little funny twist

that much delites the humorist.

A sample here will help to show

how a bad pun ought to go.

A pun is the lowest form of wit

It does not tax the brain a bit

One merely take a word that's plain

then picks another that sounds the same

but adds a little funny twist

that much delites the humorist.

A sample here will help to show

how a bad pun ought to go.

It wasn't the cough that carried her off

It was the coffinn they carried her off in.

Actually that's not a pun, it's a quip.  

"What did Santa say to the slutty farm girl?  'Hoe, Hoe, Ho!' "  is a pun.
