ImageIt is everywhere, and we all probably bumped to them going to work, they look into your direction, and say "Save the trees, sign the petition".

There they are, everywhere, environmentalists with wooden sticks to hold up their picket signs, all printed on paper, and the petition, paper. They have oversized evil looking heads of the CEO of large logging firms, all made of paper maché, and they got donuts inside brown paper bags. Environmental protests do seem to take a toll on the environment.

ImageHere is one very thought provoking idea, if cigarettes can be made to not become detrimental to health, would it more acceptable to society?

Everyone wants to put down cigarettes due to the health problems that it can cause. This is perfectly logical and understandable. But, with the new developments in gene replacements and biotechnology, in the near future, there might be a chance for cigarettes not to be detrimental to health anymore.

ImageThe recent shooting in NIU has brought international sentiment, fear, and confusion, on what makes school shooting more rampant in recent times. 

This time, they're not the usual terrorists we have all grown to be scared of, but regular everyday boys and girls with no past criminal record. The bigger problem is no one can really comprehend the cause of all these shootings, and why do they take their lives in the end, after shooting people in random. The idea that we do not know why makes things more terrifying, it is so random we do not know how to stop the next person from committing such tragedy.

ImageMany of you may remember this during your childhood (up until mine) we used to have candies that look like cigarette sticks. These candies were actually bubble gum, and its casing looks very much like a pack of cigarettes.

My parents never did buy me those packs, but I did get them once when I was young (from my dad's friends or relatives, the origin of where I got it was very unclear, and from what I recall, very irrelevant as well) and found them to be something children of my age would like to get. These packs of cigarette candies would make us feel like we are adults, and respectable, or to another term, even "cool".

ImageMark Sebastian has that blank gaze in his eyes. This gaze he has is as if he is on a hypnotic trance on something interesting, and that there is a sudden detachment from his external senses. He is breathing, but he isn't moving, just on that blank gaze to the front. 

This gaze makes him look comatose, or more obsessed to that item he is staring at, but definitely not with diarrhea, as people with diarrhea cannot stay still, hoping that by not staying still they will not have to go immediately. This is something so interesting and hypnotic he cannot help it but ignore the use of any external sense.

ImageOn my way to Manila once on a trip I chanced upon a very astonishing view. This was a trip at night in a plane and as I was looking out on the window, like others, staring down on the city lights, I chanced to change my view to the middle. 

In this view there was a reddish hue, suggesting that of the city lights, shielded off in the middle would be the faint gray clouds, and on top, the dark night cladded with stars.
