Acceptance of harsh fact

Today I finished reading a book called The King of Torts written by John Grisham, it was a shortened version with a few questions in the end – to give us food for thought. The story is basically about a lawyer who makes unfavourable out-of-court settlements for his clients to earn himself a lot of money. The thing is that he forces people to take money and keep quiet about a drug – which affected them badly, hurt them or their close relatives.

And the question in the end – if you knew that pharmaceutical company was responsible for the death of someone in your family, would you:

  • accept a lot of money in compensation and ask no questions?

or

  • refuse compensation and try to take the pharmaceutical company to court?

Why we let strangers share our lives

Who already know me probably also know that I like reflecting. However, today I would like you to think about social networks and their influence. Almost everyone (except my mother) has Facebook, Skype, Twiter or something similar. Of curse, we say that we have it because of the easier communication. But honestly, can you imagine your life without it? I hope you do.

Every day I see on the Facebook wall a number of the contributions from my friends. Everyone share where they ate, where they slept and with who, what they got for his birthay or where they spent holidays. I don’t want to say it’s wrong but I don’t do it. Honestly, where I eat and do things is completely my bussines, no one has to know that. I don’t need to boast about it as many others and honestly, I don’t really care about the others at all. So why are some people still so keen on posting their meals and photographs from fitness? Why do they want show their lives to the strangers? Real friends know with who you date, what you do and so on. You don’t have to remind them that you exist. Only jealous and envious people read and look through the Facebook wall and wonder who (how my mother says) fart what.

Darkness inside of us

Sometimes, I think about people, who decided to do something wrong. When I studied on my school-leaving exam few months ago, I was learning about the criminals and how people become the criminals. But honestly, I think that every one of us have a little criminal inside us. It depends only on how much we let him grow and influence us.

I’m not trying to say that we all are the same – murderers as adulterers. But tell me that you have never heard that voice inside of you, which persuades you to do something you don’t want to do or something you know is wrong (even you eventually didn’t yield to temptation). As the saying goes, an opportunity makes the thief.

What would you take to an abandoned island?

Often we can hear people talk about what kind of things they would bring to the deserted island. In the most cases, we hear answer as telephone, tablet, computer, Wi-Fi connection, television. However, at first we should think about a box of matches, drinking wather, atlas of eatable plants, axe or partner (if we can talk about it as a thing).

Is the internet really so necessary? I mean, think about it. You are alone on the island. You can’t write messages to your friends (not even postcards), you can’t read what happened in the rest of the world, you can’t shop online or play games. Of curse, the first option is the worst, you would lose attachment with the world, you wouldn’t know if someone died, you wouldn’t know about WW3 or anything. But the most people would choose the internet over the box of matches because they just can’t live without typing and looking through the Facebook wall.

The best time of the year

Few days ago, the first Summer day came and to the Czech Republic brought an amazing weather. Normally, our temperature is in this time of the year about 20 degrees. However, for a few days now is about 36 degrees, which is awesome. I also know some people who just close themselves into their flats and refuse to go outside. However, I welcome the sun and high temperature with the open arms. I took a few days off and I just enjoy my time on my own after a very long time. I swim in the pool (or maybe is better to say I float on my new huge-infitable-donut).
