Are we being watched?

December 5, 2006

Everywhere we go, every high street we walk down, we are being watched, people are watching every camera, CCTV is taking over the Uk and the world, In fact the UK alone has over 20% of CCTV camera’s in the world. This makes UK the most watched nation in the world. In the UK there is one CCTV camera for every 12 people, that makes over 5 million camera’s. surv_cams1.jpgThere are many good and bad outcomes of being watched, I am only mentioning two, one is that by being watched crimes have dropped by up to 60% since 1995, also many more murders or attacks have been brought to justice. Knowing you are being watched comforts some people, on the other hand people are saying that government are deciding to use the surveillance to their ability. The government said shoppers may watched and scanned as they enter stores, school students could bring in cards allowing parents to monitor what their children eat. cctv_van1.jpgThese camera’s in the street all can be rotated with a joystick, by turning the joystick a man could see a murder or an attack happen, if this part of the street wasn’t being watched then nothing would be done towards the murder. Also some camera’s now even have infrared and sound detection, there is no hiding! Camera’s catch you around 300 times if you spend a whole day walking around central London, also they can read number plates and scan your face into a database. Do you want to get falsely accused of a crime and your face come up on the computer, neither do I, what do you think?

Memories of Home

Memories of Home

I look down towards the ground,
Damp and wet all around,
Mud and blood stain my boots,
Left there by a new recruit.

Tears fill my eyes,
I try to disguise,
My memories from home.

Running towards the front line,
Aches and pains all combine,
Heart beats fast and lungs inflate,
I know I’m in a bad state.

Thick, dark smoke covers my sight,
Yellow gas, I scream with fright,
Down I fall to my knee’s,
Not now, not me, don’t please!

I feel pain now,
Not much more I can allow,
My memories from home.

Breathing is hard, I feel faint,
In and out of consciousness,
German voices coming near,
Closer and closer, they appear.

Standing right there,
In front, they stare,
My memories from home.

This is the end, no doubt,
A man moves, HALT they shout,
They shoot, blood comes from his head
No saving him now, he’s dead.

I close my eyes,
And wait to die
My memories from home.

Space Trator

December 3, 2006

Space Trator

As I float here,
In the green dim light of the tunnel,
I know I cant get back now,
Back to humanity, stuck in the darkness.

Ground control hasn’t spoken to me,
Two days I have waited. No contact.
I didn’t mean to abandon him,
I thought we would get back.

His face haunts my uncomfortable dream,
Strapped to the wall, still only green lights to comfort me.
No fuel, not much supply of food,
I’m so stupid!

So alone, in this world, a world not a world as such,
My world, my corrupt little delusion.
I lost my friend of 20 years,
All to my mistake.

Miscalculations, misinterpretations.
Spacewalk from hell,
My mind makes me mumble these words,
Words in which no one will hear. Echo’s in a fake environment.

He tangled in the air pipe,
His face red, eyes bulging,
Screaming at me to get him out,
I didn’t listen to him, I was ordered to stop, they didn’t know.

I left, he drifted away, I’m stuck here, they found out.
I have no more that one day left,
I’m a traitor, so they treat me as one,
They are, to them I’m nothing, a man in a $30 tin can.

Dreams

December 3, 2006

Dreams

Dreams are what we are made of,
Memories twisted by interpretation,
Our own being dilutes them
And understanding is halved.

A sense of mist surrounds them,
Blurred to perfection,
Until woken up from delusion
Our mind gives ultimate bliss.

Some are lucid, others aren’t,
Messed up to mean something,
Dreams in sleep, daydreams, distractions,
All programmed by media’s lies.

Folders in our head,
Main points of yesterdays meeting,
Bullet points, scribbles, notes,
All stored in the brains power.

Dreams of what could be done
With our lives, destiny or fate
You might ask inside, deep inside
Which one you will choose.

All thought out for us,
Dreams are mere lies inserted
Into our brains by world control,
Existence is only what we appear to know.

Borat Review

December 2, 2006

Jagshamesh,

When I heard about Borat I thought it was going to be a crappy low budget film but I started to hear my friends say some catchphrases from his shows, they were funny, I searched him on the Internet and looked at some of his videos. I noticed he is very good at keeping in character and keeping the accent and he does this extremely well in the film. image2144627.jpgBorat: Cultural Learning’s of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is the name of the film, even in the title you know it’s Borat. The film shows Borat filming a documentary for his country, Kazakhstan, to try and get idea’s for benefiting it. He travels to America and meets many people on the way, most of which have no idea what he is on about and find him very rude and uneducated. Most of his comedy is “cringe then laugh” comedy, you have to look away from the screen sometimes but once you think about it, it’s actually side splittingly funny! boratcannes1.jpgHis anti-semitism and sexist comments and beliefs add to the funny side of only knowing basic English sayings, most of the stuff which comes from his mouth is insulting in some way. I recommend if you under 15 in the UK don’t try to get in, it is too rude, no I’m joking, I think many people will see it and be disgusted but even more will die laughing! Enjoy, I really recommend Borat because of it’s educational properties, only joking!

9/10

I think in my lifetime, of 15 years, I have done alot of things many people will not get a chance to do, I am lucky to have done these things and I hope more people will get a chance! I choose to do these things because they are amazing experiences and because I can. Im sure I will do more in the future as well.

Here are the top ten experiences of my life (so far) in accending order:

1. I met Derren Brown in High Wycombe after his show, which was AMAZING to say the least, he is very clever with psychology and hypnosis and many people I know look up to him. I am an avid fan of his, proving this by having two autographs of his and all his dvd’s and books! Great guy!

2. Two years ago I went on a trip to Germany to a town called Traben Trarbach with my school, we stayed in a youth hostel, which was very nice, but the trips inside the main trip was what made it extra special. We went to one of the oldest cities in Germany, we went to an amazing castle and did many other things like wine tasting, shhh! Then, in West Germany, I went on a exchange to Leichlingen, a town near to Colougne. I was staying, for a week, with a german my age, they were very nice to me and I had a great time, I respect Germany for being such a beautiful country and giving me happy memories!

3. In Wales there are many caves, I have been caving there many times, not in a club, just with trips, but some that I have done are for experts. I have done very amazing things whilst caving, rock climbing with 100ft drops, swimming in a disused mine, squeezing through a 20ft tunnel just as wide as me. I love the adrenaline rush whilst caving, I’d do it again anyday, I’d love to do that cave where you base jump in!

4. Snowdon in Wales is 3560ft (1085m) high, I climbed not only this mountain but many others in the horse shoe of mountains as well! Also what made it hard was the extreme cold and rainy weather blowing against my face and knowing I wouldnt see the view because of clouds, I wish I could, it would have made the experience a whole lot better!

5. A year ago in easter I went on holiday to St Lucia, the whole holiday was good and some other things I did are in my top 10 but this is number 4, when we got there we got asked if we wanted to fly in a helicopter to an airport the other side of the island instead of having a 3 hour bus ride. The helicopter ride only took 20 mins and it was a great experience, that feeling you get in your stomach when going over a bump in the road, well, this was applified 10 times! The views were amazing also! I may upload a video of it!

To be continued (6-10)
