Sex or money?

If you do it right, one can get you the other, without causing too much of a scandal. :)

I noticed Orkut doing the Facebook thing. They're become more and more wannabe day by day. And it's sad, the way they've implemented applications. That thing needs A LOT of work.

And yep, everything is about Sex, Money and ShahRukh, as his fans say.

Espèra said...

Yeah, someone said so. Only sex and Shah Rukh sell.

and yeah, kinda sad about the orkut thing.

Money is the greatest virtue on earth. I'll tell you why someone called Alan Greenspan once said something profoundly true;
"
Capitalism is based on self-interest and self-esteem; it holds integrity and trustworthiness as cardinal virtues and makes them pay off in the marketplace, thus demanding that men survive by means of virtue, not vices. It is this superlatively moral system that the welfare statists propose to improve upon by means of preventative law, snooping bureaucrats, and the chronic goad of fear.
"
Money, is the medium for this. It's fundamental to a free society, if you have no money then you have no liberty. What is money anyway? It's nothing but a thing you give value to, and in the process of doing that everyone even the biggest philanthropist has to acknowledge the worship of virtue not vices. I love people for their virtues but never for their vices.

Sex on the other hand leads to one of the purest emotions anyone can ever experience, it's the acknowledgment of virtue in others and payment in a rational trade for that virtue in order to get pleasure.

Most people fail to do that and that's why it's just another experience, that's how it became a taboo, those who can't experience it don't understand it. In order to truly experience it you have to be a trader, nothing less, nothing more.

Also any person who can take any human being into bed with them is incapable of feeling this, because not every human has those virtues, there are few in life(2 on last count) I have ever felt physically attracted to a human being and I am proud of it. I can judge a person by the human they fall in love with, I seek virtues not vices whereas most of them don't. Think different.

In short sex and money are the few good things in this world that haven't been defiled by the looters so it's good that things revolve around them, it's an indication of progress.

2 taurius: O_o

2 snitch: Shah Rukh???? and yeah, orkut could possibly get sued. though i don't think so, they aren't using the same names for applications.

2 espera: sex, yea, but shah rukh's a bit past his prime i think.

2 bubbles: yeah "we got four minutes to save the world, so grab a boy, grab a girl...."

2 shadow: um......now THAT i do not agree with. at all.

2 anuj: hola again. yeah, money is very important, but it gets unnerving how the world values money over happiness or thinks that money is the only way there.
and you're very right about the sex, it has been considered sacred, and the purest form of...hmm....i don't know, it's been considered very pure. I think that when religion started developing, they decided it wasn't right for one to get so much energy from something not connected to religion......they couldn't understand it, maybe....thus they tabooed it.
sigh.
as for your last para.....ok, point made.

Its Called Money making bullshit. Why do you think all the rappers put 10 -15 girls in a music video..? basically he song sucks but the chicks rule so ppl go like yea lets do it for the chikcs and buy his song or dwonload it. but maddonna she just plain stupid. but then stupid is as stupid does.

Espèra said...

Shah Rukh's past his prime?
You may think so, I may think so, but half the world still doesn't.
Didn't you see him Om Shanti Om, trying to look like a 20-something movie star?
And it sells.
It sold Deepika Padukone, for one.

Hi, Mystique.

Have a nice weekend.

Got here by way of the Phishbowl. A while ago. Sex and money. Yes, two things that the world is all about. There's also power, but no one likes to talk about that. Funny, firewhiskey mentions 'Madge' has always been about that, Like A Virgin and Material Girl standing testimony. True, but I think she was at least honest about it. And people covered their kids' eyes when confronted. Today, no one's bothered. Great, but I always thought kids were smarter because of the lack of sex (you watch Seinfeld? George?). And adult (men) stupidly arrogant because of it... Okay, I'm clearly in a mood to rant; I should move this momentum back to the blog.

What was that confused dodo-eyed look for?

Mystique said...

2 png: aaaaaaaaah, yeah, but then i could go on and on and on.....

2 venky: there y'go. Money.

2 espera: he fooled no one, really. by the way, the grey shirt he wore that says "who cares??"
I think that's a girls' shirt.....
anyway.

2 void: we're all a bit pervy here. And i don't have cable tv, dishtv etc, but i have watched a bit of Seinfield.
