Parents, teachers, educators, we need to overcome the limits of conventional education, which has turned in to a system that is diminishing kids creativity. It should be not just about telling kids what they should do, and indoctrinate them follow certain paths in life, but rather inspire their passion to create and innovate.

"No one has ever changed the world by doing what the world told them to do."

Hear the inspirational TEDx Youth talk by Eddy Zhong, who started a successful tech company at the age of 16:

About our ‘malignant egophrenia’—the ego unchained from reason and limits, acting with malevolent logic: http://www.kosmosjournal.org/article/seeing-wetiko-on-capitalism-mind-viruses-and-antidotes-for-a-world-in-transition/
It’s delicate confronting these priests of the golden bull They preach from the pulpit of the bottom line Their minds rustle with million dollar bills You say Silver burns a hole in your pocket And Gold burns a hole in your soul Well, uranium burns a hole in forever It just gets out of control

Why the bloody massacre of self aware, intelligent beings is "beautiful to watch" and a good "tradition" to keep for Faroese people?

Really disgusting. Outright cannibalism would be less so. If this insanity represents their culture, they desperately need a new culture, the poor ignorant savages.

I believe that the planned obsolescence in the design of any product is in direct contradiction to what good design means.
It's not just stupid, it is sick.

Our current economic model built on such rule that products are easily breakable and so constantly thrown away to be replaced with new things is absolutely wasteful and not sustainable at all.

Delicious suicide: a disaster for the environment, and not so great for human beings, too. Meat is horrible.
