Financial Crisis

It's worse than you think, you know.

With my in depth kowledge of the current financial climate, which comes from working in Finance and Banking, I am watching more and more companies, big ones and small ones, laying people off, paying redundancy money through our systems.

It's really really scary.

For the first time, I've found something I can't fathom.

I don't know how we're going to be able to make this better.

What happens when EVERYTHING starts to grind to a halt?

It's coming, and I'm scared.

I don't want to live in this world right now. These fucktards who are supposed to be in charge... the ones who are supposed to see this coming, and keep up safe from it... the ones who are supposed to dedicate their lives to it... they've let us down, and I don't see how it can be fixed.

Not even the all powerful Obama can back America out of it I'm sure. $700bn!?! you have to think about where that money will be coming from, and how it's going to eventually be paid back.

At least America will have a decent leader to take them through it. Who do we have over here? Brown? *scoff* Or his replacement? Who then. Cameron? Please god no. Will Milliband step up and run for Labour leadership? I'm not thrilled about that either to be perfectly honest.

Fucking scary times, my friends.

People 'Still willing to torture'

People 'Still willing to torture'

I studied the original experiment by Milgram when I was doing my Psychology A-Level. It was my favourite case study by far, as it was the one that struck me the hardest.

It's really fucking scary to see just what people will do if they are put under social pressure.

For all those people knew, that man was DEAD.


Because of them.
Because they couldn't stand up and tell one measley scientist where to shove their learning experiment.

That's pretty sickening if you ask me. As if I needed more reason to distrust everyone I ever meet without the thought that they'd rather electrocute me than go against social norms.

It's like that poor guy who got trampled in Walmart in the U.S. (Yeah I'm a brit). how fucking hard would it have been to stop and offer him a hand?

Just put your hand out and help him to get back on his feet.
Or was his head that extra boost you needed to reach the mp3 player at the back of the top shelf, you sick fucks.

Hmmm, I'm ranting.

I'll try and pick a happier topic next time, I promise.
