Human Mechanics Insight (Guilt, Dissing, Compromises and Being Too Nice)


This post is about some understanding and insight that I need to unload off my consciousness into the blogosphere.

It is impossible to enjoy dissing others if you don’t spend your energy doing things you don’t feel like; or, to put another way, if you don’t force yourself to be nice to people you don’t actually like. The energy unload (and hence enjoyment) that can be harvested at dissing needs to be accumulated in you first to feel a relief or some sort of powertrip. And to accumulate it you need to either force yourself to be nice to people you dislike; or in general answer to request when those requests didn’t feel necessary.

A PEMEX Sponsored Story

Just because in canada, or the US, things happen in a certain way; doesn’t mean that in latin america, things need to be the same. In fact, they are quite different. First, women are great at pumping gas here, and wearing tight outfits to do so in the hot sun. Second, nobody wants to count how much money you actually left on the ground there next to the pump. No, I’m not counting that. Third, they serve drinks while people wait in the car, no you don’t have to get out and BUY 2-3$ bottles of sugared water; it’s on us! and yeah, there you have it. A beautiful PEMEX story just for you. (wordpress fucked up the order of the pictures, my apologies).

Acapulco by night


I got to Acapulco just ripe in time for the celebration of the independance of Me’ico. there were people everywhere, fireworks, a show 2 blocks from my hotel which was located in the heart of all festive activities. I didn’t know about any of it, but it was a good way to welcome me to this bustling, touristless city.

Acapulco – Playa Caleta


Playa Caleta, in Acapulco is meant to be a family beach, which means smaller waves, and lots of kids running around. I went there a bit late during the day; but this is what it looked like.

Look on the lower left to find where this beach is located.

Mexico Airport isn’t pretty


Mexico airport isn’t exactly pretty, I mean I think they tried. It is situated on a hill, with incredible views on each side, but you can’t see much of it unfortunately. It has an open air concept which is quite appealing, I like the ‘idea’ behind it, but the execution is probably similar to most modern architecture projets… it looks great on computer screens but in real life.. meh.

That being said, there are quite insteresting things you can do with a camera and the lights there; which are in fact tiny windows to the outside. :)
