Planet Earth: planes fly without pilots and researchers find out *unthinkable* things

 article about Weird news

This article belongs to theme.


I've always thought that planet Earth is a very insane place to live
on. Up until now I just said it, but then I started thinking… which is
not very common for me, I know. I was going through the news today and
it really hit me – there's nonsense around us EVERYWHERE. Well, I knew
that, but still, why? Who needs it?


Really, look at the
news, they're either extremely trivial or funny….by funny I mean…lately
lots of tragedies and such have been also really weird when you think
about them. Windows announced their security flaw that allows the
hackers to take full control of your computer. Notice that FIRST Windows announced the bugs and THEN
people's computers were actually hacked into. I think tomorrow I'm
gonna call my girlfriend to tell her not to come to my place on 20th,
as I might have another gal with me. Well, why not, if Bill can, I can too.


Planes and helicopters are flying around without pilots on their seats,
eventually crashing. It isn't funny, I know, but really, you can't see
a pilot in a plane carrying 121 people? Is it normal? Or take the
recent helicopter crash between Estonia and Finland, the helicopter
crashed killing 14 people. But again, the pilot has still not been
found. And these two crashes happened about the same time, give it a
day or two.

Tommy Lee Goes to College, did you know that? Or at
least that's what his new reality show is about. According to viewers
it seems to be phoney. I guess Tommy just needs some more respect, fame
and cash. Btw, does everyone have their own TV-show? It seems to be
kind of a rule nowadays – if you don't have one, then start one!

[FLIP]
Lets talk more about trivial things – did you know that money could
make you happier? That's the result of a recent research conducted by
researchers. Yes, real researchers, not two 12-year olds, conducted it.
Is this really something that needs to be proven? I mean I hope we all
know that life is not about money. But for a decent life you need to
have the means. And of course if you have them, you're a lot happier
than those who can barely buy themselves some food every other day.


Do you smoke? Do you drink? Do you sunbathe? If you do, you're screwed
too, the researchers from the University of Texas say that 53 percent
of the people who sunbathe regularly could be classed as ultra-violet
light dependent. Well, what can I say? I just can't help it, I just
have to scratch it, I'm addicted, after all.

Now, don't get
me wrong, I'm not angry towards anyone, I'm not disappointed in life,
I'm actually one of the most easy-going people you don't know. But like
the song goes –

"I read the news today oh boy

About a lucky man who made the grade

And though the news was rather sad

Well I just had to laugh" (Lennon/McCartney)
