I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul

Can't pray to new gods, that would be Evolution; what about those stories were you have to take money to the undertakers before getting on...

Life is all about evolution. What looks like a mistake to others has been a milestone in my life. Even if people have betrayed me, even if my heart was broken, even if people misunderstood or judged me, I have learned from these incidents. We are human and we make mistakes, but learning from them is what makes the difference.

« des chemises brunes se cachent sous beaucoup de gilets jaunes »
“Brown shirts hide under many yellow vests”

(Florian Bachelier)

I am always sorry, and will always be. Ashamed and sad and touched and emotionally ... tattered (?). But NEVER will I mingle with an unleashed horde of whatever kind of egoistic, jealous, hypocrite imposters. Thus, I will never mingle with Mr. Bachelier, either, nor his beloved president or any of the useless in power. He has spoken true, however.

“There are as many ‘political movements’ as there are roundabouts in France.”

well said - if i may rip this out of context.

I pay way too little attention to what's happening in France atm - it's being held by other tragicomedies.
it seems world politics nowadays (*) is some sort of "Drunken Clowns with Explosives" contest.
not funny.

(*) and don't tell me "it always was" - it has gotten worse since 2016.

I do not know enough (that's “know” like in knowledge) even to be biased (in opinion and believes). But we are, in terms of months, weeks, years, currently closer to a thermonuclear war than to extinction by blind confidence in technology (i.e. death by destroying life in any other way).

A "Drunken Clowns with Explosives" contest, it is. Add the French religion « we cannot do anything » and if we could, « noone would let us »; that's all you need to know.

It is the 15th of the month. I have to switch basins in my domestic wet-park. You know. *I CAN* clear my waste water better than the 70% of a (new, fully functional) wastewater treatment plant. We use 2kWh by day and do live with an amount of money that those idiots would not consider .... - would not consider anyway. Thus, I do not exist. How could I take part in their quarrels? Not existing, as I am.

Fashion heroes of WWII

I often find the under-titles on engrish.com just as good or better than the actual “Engrish”.
