Cybersluts

With the internet being more and more accessible to our fingertips, one must wonder how this impacts on our sex lives.

You'd assume it should really have none, as there is no physical touching involved, but there are so many websites, apps, chatroom, porn sites, dating sites and pages tailoring to every fetish. It's actually pretty easy to get laid on the web.

But how do you know that you're getting what you've bargained for?

"18" year old girl? Or 55 year old man?
There's no real way to tell who you're talking to is actually who they claim they are. I mean, that hot, young, perky 19 year old girl could actually be a boy hungry paedophile who has a suspicious white van. You're meeting this hot lady in a private place, hoping she'll put out and the next thing you know it, you're in a dark room, underpants to your ankles and wishing you were in Disneyland.

So here are some survival tips, because I don't people who read this to get kidnapped, because, well, the news wouldn't shut up about it and I have better things to watch.

Do NOT hand out your mobile so easily
You've talked to this person for like five minutes and they ask for your number?  Chances are they'll most likely stalk if you do. People these days don't realise how easy it is to stalk someone once you have their number, all you need is their number and they could easily find where you live. Mobile numbers are personal like that, you shouldn't give it out to any ol' slut on the internet.

Make sure you keep this safe kiddies

Add them on Facebook (Or Twitter if you're lame), and stalk them thoroughly
I know this might seem self-contradictory because of my last post, but the difference between that and your mobile phone is that it's alot easier to block someone on a social networking system. It's easy to tell if the person you're talking to is legit. Even if they don't use facebook alot, most people have a display picture, a few statuses and a few wallposts from friends. If they say "I don't have Facebook" or whatever, be on your guard, but don't cut all contact with them, they might actually not have one.

Go with your gut.
You know how sometimes when you talk to people you just get that... Off feeling about them? And a week later, they're on the news because they killed 3 people? Well the same rules apply on the internet. Your instincts are amongst the most powerful of tools you can have on the internet, so make sure you listen to it. If the guy you're talking to gives you the creeps ladies, chances are if you keep talking to him, you'll find him breathing on you in your sleep at 3 in the morning. So make sure you follow your gut at all times.

Don't send out your nudes too quickly.
People on the internet are scam artists and they'll do anything for a look at your private flesh. Don't fall for their "charms" too quickly otherwise you'll find yourself humiliated and embarrassed. Most people surprising keep their word when they say "I'll show you mine if you show me yours." But just in case, try to delay sending cock pics out as soon as you can, it could very well fire back in your face (no pun intended ;) )

Poor Slut

Get to know the person reasonably well
Before you decide to strip down on the webcam, make sure you talk to the person for a little bit. Try to aim for at least an hour. It's surprising how well you can get to know a person in an hour, you might just wanna get naked for the sake of seeing the other person's ding dong and that's all well and good, but you really should be careful, people are never who they claim they are on the internet and you could be stripping for an obese 35 year old man who rolls cover his junk, so it's not like you can see it anyways.

Insist on a public meeting place.
If youse have been talking foe awhile and want to meet up; that's all good, in fact, I encourage it. People can be different in person than on the internet and it's alot easier to analyse someone face to face as well. But, make sure you meet in a public place. DO NOT meet at their house the first time, that's just a recipe for disaster. I know it may seem like an obvious thing to say, but people do crazy things in the spur of the moment.

That's the five top tips I can give you, you are now armed with the knowledge to protect yourself. It's like having a can of pepper spray and having a blue belt in karate, you can protect yourself reasonably well. But, even the smartest of people can fall for internet scam artists so make sure you're extra careful with those with the silver tongue.

Setting Fire to the Rain

Setting Fire to the Rain... Achieving the impossible... Shedding all the weaknesses of the past and learning from them.

That's what I believe this means.

Let's take Tellah from Final Fantasy IV for example. In a last ditch effort to destroy Golbez, he casts meteor, hoping to achieve the final blow. A spell that hadn't been cast for a very long time. He shed the weakness of his age and the fear of possible death to try to destroy Golbez once and for all. But sadly, things don't always go as we plan and Tellah died because it used too much of his life force.







Sage Tellah achieving the impossible, 

and making it rain fire


Just like Sage Tellah's testament, sometimes, we can throw everything on the table and from a last ditch effort to shed the horrors of our world, it can destroy you in the process.

You shouldn't be so desperate to rid yourself of the past, without meditating and learning from them. If you rush the healing process too much, you'll end up hurting yourself (and others) beyond repair. Take your time and ease your healing steadily and at your own pace.

But don't be too complacent either.

Don't get too relaxed, you should take your own time with getting better, but you should NEVER come at a complete standstill. Self-discipline is crucial here as it is really up to you, and you alone, to move on from the past and take a step forward into a happier and brighter future.

And always remember how beautiful you truly are, never let it get you down, you just gotta chin up and smile!

Recent Western Power's Blackouts

So, for the third day in the row, suburbs surrounding me including my own have experienced power outages. So I thought to myself, "Have Western Power explained what is happening?"

So I go on their website and click on the power interruptions. I type in my Post code and it states "No known interruptions"

Um, excuse me?! I have had 'power interruptions' three days in a row!

So I decided to try another,

Nothing.

Seriously, how stupid do you think we are? You think if you didn't acknowledge the problem that we all just won't see that it happened. Can't you even give us an explanation? We deserve at least that much! I mean, we're paying thousands a year in electricity and it doesn't even seem to be functioning correctly half the time.

Is this how you treat us?

Maybe it's time to upgrade to more reliable resources? We could easily use a combination of wind power and solar power, because when it's cloudy it's usually somewhat windy. I mean, we're forking out around a thousand dollars in council fees, we might as well invest it towards something that's not useless security and removing graffiti that's only going to be there again a week later.

I'm hoping that this is the last power outage for awhile, but do you think that's wishful thinking?

Weekly Review: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I saw this movie last week and. It. Was. Amazing! The plot, characters, settings, god, I just loved everything!

But one of my favourite parts was the magnificent acting by Rooney Mara (who played Lisbeth Salander)



Isn't she pretty?

I haven't read the original novels (I certainly want to after watching this movie,) but the character Rooney plays just fascinates me without end! I just desperately wanted to see her happy ending! I wanted to see her love another human being! I wanted her to see the other peoples weren't just tools and could be trusted!

But sadly, things don't always go the way we want them to.

So much crap happens to her throughout the movie, that it's no wonder she's so screwed up. I mean, she gets raped be her friggin financial manager for christ's sake. Is it through genetics or past events the reason why she's mentally insane? Very little is given about her past, I want, no, I need to know more. She confesses towards the near end of the movie that she tried to kill her father when she was ten. But why would she do this? Was her father sexually abusing her? Was he beating her mother? So many burning questions left unanswered!

Considering her very dark personality, she actually provides comedic relief also. Her smart-assed remarks and the way she offended people certainly made me laugh more than once. I just remember how she was towards the lady in charge of the archives, god, Ms Salander certainly put HER in her place.


Encrypted Password? Please

The character development between Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist (who was played by Daniel Craig) I also found pretty interesting. At first, Mikael was interested, almost fascinated, by Lisbeth and her mannerisms, but then they eventually befriend and for a little while, it seems like they romantically interested in eachother. I almost cried at the end of the movie when she sees him with that slutty co-worker of his. 

That one scene, made such an impact on me.


You don't deserve her hey, hey's; you filthy manslut!

I almost cried, I'm not even kidding. I thought, maybe, although it's not direct about it, this could be the happy ending for her I wanted. God, she even told her stroke-ridden guardian that she made a friend that he'd approve of. Basically, he was the only other person that she cared for other than her legal guardians and then he lies to her face when she obviously has no one to spend christmas with and then to add insult to injury, goes and most likely deeply penetrates that damn harlot at the night in question.

Fuck you Mikael, I hope you burn for what you've done!

Mikael as a character I wasn't too interested in anyways; and I'm not just saying that because he broke Lisbeth's heart. All throughout the movie, I just didn't really care all that much about him. At the start of the movie, it wasn't really clear about what he did and I didn't figure out what he actually did to cause so much strife until the near end of the movie when they mentioned it again. The only part that mildly interested me about him was the fact that he pretty much hated religion and the cruel sting of irony that lead him to read the bible. It must of been hilariously confronting for him.

In fact, this movie in it's entirety, is pretty confronting. In many scenes, I found myself struggling to look at the screen.


This man does horrible, unspeakable things

This movie certainly isn't for those who a faint hearted or easily confronted. This movie uses very strong imagery to get what it needs to say across. They do not sugar coat it in anyway, it's basically what you see is what you're going to get. Even though this movie uses powerful, almost, aggressive imagery, it has so many depths and layers that I wouldn't even know where to start talking about them, and I could be here all day if I really wanted. Basically, this movie says so much, but it doesn't say so much more and it just leaves you wanting more.

All in all, I eagerly await a sequel to the movie and I'll most likely end up reading the books before that even comes out. I haven't watched a movie I enjoyed this much in a very long time, rarely do I have so many good things to say about a movie, movies these are all about explosions and lackluster, cliche plots, I'm so happy to have seen a change from this and I hope to see more movies like this.
