Glory to Google

Ai mean; think about it: Look at my pages, all made on services from Google, and think about it. Blogger, Google Sites, Google+, YouTube, and any other. Think about it. And fathom the love of those engineers and layout creators. Fathom the work. Hours of hours of planning, detailed, insanely boring programming, problems which had to be solved, efforts in foreseeing what stupidities people might do. Likely hours awake at night, and chocolate cake and lemonade when benchmarks were made. Imagine, there are such people. Which are not priests, not health care people, not soldiers. They are technicians. Devoting their lives to the benefit of people. To man.

Ai am impressed. And aI know Google has become a giant, economically speaking, and aI am afraid ill has been done in the pursuing of wealth. That should not take away the glory of those hard working ingenious people having made and maintaining the services. It is incredible, what has been made. And, we must acknowledge any one in those people's position faces the terrible challenge of money making. Even an ingenious engineer cannot live on water and air alone, and there are, in fact, expenses.

Again aI am not with you

In Google Maps, it seems like both Shanghai in China (my landing place was Wuxi) and Bartiga in South-America, in Guiana, was made objects of dreams. Ai presume Bartiga was supposed to be a heaven for the elite. And aI suppose Shanhai was supposed to be an economical center. There are roads, on the maps, which in no way coincide with the photos. My immediate thought, is that aI feel sorry for the engineers, and other working people, in Google. One should acknowledge that people in Google, as people in the Norwegian Broadcasting Company, have been targeted. My second thought is that this is not something aI will argue with. Ai take what aI believe is the Chinese stand, and say, this is nonsense, what Germans call verrückt. We have a history, any one of us, and as cultures, and if this is not acknowledged, man is a lottery player.

Especially to Americans

You know, in Norway we have a word which sounds a bit like "glory" and "glorious", and even so, it is absolutely not it. And that is "glorete". That means "garish(ed)". Ai believe the root to the word "glory" must be Latin ("gloria"), and aI wonder if the Norwegian word "glør" has something to do with "gloria". "Glør" means glowing wood or coal, or embers. We do not distinguish in Norwegian. We are, though, not fond of what we call effectmakery ("effektmakeri"). The neon lights of the city to most of us are foreign and belong to the salesman, and we have both read the novel "Death of a salesman" and seen the play. And your Christmas decorations are funny, and the decoration is a real nuisance to the eye. Christmas decoration to most Norwegians at home, if lights, is a candle holder for the four advent lights, and small electric lights on the Christmas tree, if one has one. And another thing which really annoys me, is that you have not made batteries for tea-lights, yet, which last.

My point, is that our fathers used to say, "everything is so great in America." Effektmakeri, and impressive things. And, you know, what impresses the most, is faith.

Some seem to have lost all intelligence

Either you beat, or you are beaten says Satan. Either you give, or you are receiving, says Satan. What kind are you? says Satan.

It is so stupid, a such imbecile life orientation, aI wonder if that stupidity of man should be spit out of his people, anywhere, and placed on the north pole, or the south pole, respectively.
