distrust, equality & gambling

Distrust is tiring. The world is out to suck on your wallet. Turns out that Co Huong is a bitch, who thinks she is Robin Hood. I was happier when I didn’t know. I’m the evil colonial bitch that everyone’s out to fuck. The big fat target that a blind fuck can hit.

Equality is against everything biology stands for. The oppressed are waiting to have someone to oppress or die trying. However, here its much harder to tell someone’s occupation (or social class) from the way they look or speak or are spoken to. The workers in my factory refuse to accept an office job because they earn more lifting bags than they would punching into a computer.

Vietnam is like a chronic chain-smoking gambler with a drinking problem and an eagerness to breed. Everyone bets all the time. And they’re always betting on the same side – the price will go up. The only time they stop betting is when they don’t have resources to continue speculating. Its hard to eat out without someone trying to nag you into buying lottery tickets. There is a friend’s maid who bought 20 kilos of onions and kept it hidden because she thought the price will go up.

Hello Amaresh,
Wow, what did she do....Like you, we were loving that woman....Mostly for looking after you so well.....We went to another blog this morning and this is what we found of a related nature:

On several occasions I read about someone been cheated, so and so is a liar, items agreed but not sent, arguments went back and forward, etc, etc. Even an experienced dealer can tell you his sad side of his unfortunate story. I am afraid I do not have an answer here for you.

First of all, there are no boundaries for thieves. They come from all walks of life, from all four corners of the earth, regardless of which countries, rich or poor. However some might argued that certain countries tend to have more thieves than others, which I incline to agree with.

To date, nothing had happened to me yet (touch wood!). I have been very lucky so far, but I am sure one of these days someone out there will get me. Perhaps someone is already plotting right now to get me! Until then, my record is still 100% perfect. I will endeavour to avoid being part of the statistics at all cost. For those who had tried in the past and of course were unsuccessful, I thank you for the valuable experience you had given me. Perhaps you should try to get a real job like everyone else. Better luck next time, you loooosers!

Equality isn't against biology. Even in ancient hunter-gatherer tribes, the fit went to hunt, and everyone shared the food. Even the young and the sick got a share. Everyone had a place in that society. Unlike today's when 10% of the population owns 90% of the resources. It is said that the Law, in its majestic equality, forbids both the rich and the poor from begging on the street, stealing bread, and sleeping under the bridge.

in families where food is scarce, the adult males are fed first so they can work harder and earn more. then children and then the woman. the idea i think is if the man isn't fit to work then the entire family will starve and perish.

the law, like many general thoughts, is a joke. beg, fight, steal and survive. the law feeds no one.
