Documentry: Food inc

 

HI Kids, 

 

Watched an interesting documentary tonight called “Food, Inc.”, about the state of the American food industry.

Very interesting, and the last 30 minutes is more so disturbing.

Below you can find a link via youtube, but, i encourage you to go search this out for yourself, noting that

the documentary is 1 hour and 30 minutes, not 1 hour long as most of the renditions around are, this being, that the

last 30 minutes are the most interesting…. naming companies like monsanto , who, over the years have had their past employees take

positions of control in the FDA (american food and drug administration) and even one of their lawyers who has gone on to become a supreme court judge

who writes legislation that is PRO Big Food and anti consumers…. interesting…

go watch.

 

Note, that I mention this, because I see our own country heading down this track with TPP – that’s really something all New Zealanders should be aware of

well, not just New Zealanders, but really everyone in the world.

 

 

Interesting Links:

What is TPP – How might it effect us

 Who/What is Monsanto

 

Who is John Key and how exactly did he get into power in NZ ?

 

PS don’t believe everything you see/hear in the media, even this… find things out for your selves.

Don’t let the forthcoming generations grow up stupid.

This is an automated blog entry… because…

 

Well.. because, I assume when it decides it’s going to post its self…

it should be about 5 or 6am NZT, I could well be at an airport,

likely getting through customs, or on a plane, or picking my nose.

WHAT! you say, an airport.. ??  yes, picking my nose.

I haven’t been to Australia for about 30 years.

Do I miss it ?  can’t remember it to know if I do or not.

Do I care ? I didn’t used to, but I do.

It’s the ‘almost’ beginning of my new journey in life.

The ‘actual’ beginning began 4 years ago when I started going to Hawaii to visit a very dear friend ( and I shall, with luck, continue to do so, so long as i have the means to).

 

So, what is so important to make me want to go there, or, even expand this journey?

Simple:
Friends.
Good soulful people with whom we have created a friendship out of common interests, non judgementally, honestly, openly, accepting of our individual beliefs, cultures, taste in weird food, ice cream flavours, hair colours, and maybe just a little craziness Smile with tongue out

But in the end.. because there are still good people in this world, and we should make the effort to attach ourselves to experiences that we would not have normally had, had we decided that the world or people we would otherwise have known didn’t matter.

Over the coming years, I will endeavour to go and visit more countries that contain more of these beautiful and amazing friendships that have been forged, to meet these people ‘in real life’, to connect and to enjoy, to breathe and walk with them, to share and experience some of what life is like for them, and hopefully to make both our lives a little less mundane, a little more expanded.

I hope, that they in turn, some day, in some way, may be able to do a similar thing, for someone they know. I hope.

We should all do this though, even if it’s only ever once in our lives, even if it’s just within our own country, city, or neighbourhood. Step out of our little plastic containers that we live in, and remind each other that outside, is a whole world of adventure and wonderment just waiting to be discovered.

Remind ourselves that it doesn’t matter who we are, where we come from or what we do, we are all the same people, we are all the same.

Except maybe the really crazy ones, but, hey, even they may have had a heart or common sense at one time, but decided that politics was a better choice for them. Oh did I just pick on a group of people… maybe I did. Winking smile

 

Anyway, it’s… 11:22pm, Wednesday the 25th of June 2014.. right now.
And I’m going to get some rest, I have an early flight to catch.

 

See if you can guess where I’m going later this year, and next year.

 

Might be your country… want to hang out, eat ice cream ? Drop me a note, comment here, or on Facebook, … lets chat Smile

Users virtually immortal on social media

http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/digital-living/30029087/Users-virtually-immortal-on-social-media

So here is a very in depth and a little drawn out article about cyber life and the reality of death.. what happens to your online life when you finally kick the bucket and start pushing up daisies while sowing the seeds of life under a tree ? 

I have a friend who’s in that state now.. gone a few years but still here .. and I’m ok with it.. to a degree. Reminds me of how good a guy he was.. and reminds me of how much I miss his madness too.

Yea anyway. . Have a read. .have a think.. start a discussion here on my blog and let’s hear what you think.

Keep up to date with my blog, subscribe and comment.. it’s that easy 🙂

Food! Where does it come from, absolutely everywhere.. now say it again… FOOD!

WARNING – this blog contains common sense, you might get offended. To avoid being offended, get some common sense, or go by some fast-food.

 

When I see stupid-arse uninformed articles like the one below….

“  Please keep this going around the world…请向全球传递这封信!mp.weixin.qq.comDenmark is a big shame.

I’m like.. WTF People!!

The actual article this was butchered from is:

OK so this has been getting on my nerves a bit lately. Seeing all these people on social media sites saying things like “Oh this is so barbaric” and so on..

I mean, Just hold up a minute… have you really actually thought about what your shooting your mouth off about ?? NO! no, you haven’t that much is painfully obviously. 

It’s ok for you to sit in front of your computers, tablet devices, smartphones, eating a steak, writing things like hunting is wrong, whaling is wrong, fishing is wrong, vegies have feelings too…

It’s apparently ok to go get your McDonalds or KFC or whatever fast-food you like, and not give a second thought as to where the ingredients came from, while you bitch and moan about how evil some countries are for breeding dogs for food or slaughtering cows, pigs, frogs and chickens…

You lot, who don’t understand where food comes from, should really use that nice relaxing time in front of the computer, and search it up!

Sorry if that’s a bit harsh, but reality is, hunting for food has been going on since the beginning of time,  it’s how we survived all these years, and if it wasn’t for hunting and fishing and whatnot, likely none of us would be here now. We just simply would not exist.

Only in recent times have our ‘sensibilities’ been a little shaken, because these last few generations of people have become isolated from the real world, isolated from where their beautifully packaged produce in the bright shiny supermarkets actually comes from. 

I grew up in a farming community, I know where my food comes from, my pet sheep tasted damned good. My dad had a hothouse in the back yard and we grew most of our own vegies.

If people really want to make a change in the world, bitching about how undomesticated or barbaric some countries are when it comes to survival isn’t the way to do it.

Take a look at what the world has become today, what your laziness has created.

Nuclear fallout from power plants, built to feel a generation of humans who want more technology more shiny toys, less interaction with the real world.

The more we isolate our kids from the realities of life, the worse this will get.

The more likely it will be that they will not ever know how to care for themselves or survive in the world.

If you want to make a change.. then start in your own back yard (so to speak), plant a garden, grow your own, .. heck, stop buying from the big bright shiny supermarkets where everything looks good and you’ve been dis-associated the realities of where the food that’s kept countless generations of people alive has come from.

Remember, every country has its own unique recourses for food, some countries eat dog, its perfectly normal, some countries eat fish, some eat meat… in the end.. we all have to eat to survive and we are HUNTERS. That’s what the Human species is. …. OMG I ranted. Epic! 🙂

 

So if you can’t understand that…

THIS

Becomes THIS:

Which makes THIS:

To become that which you love so much:

4-Steak Dinner

 

Then we are all doomed if you just don’t understand.

 

Reality is outside your door, not inside your gaming console.
