Verily, the words of the non-prophets are scribbled on the bathroom walls of the sub-universe.


Or something like that.

The holes in the walls and filthy stalls are their doing too.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

You know who does take security seriously?  Hungarian border guards.  Especially when they break the law by detaining EU citizens at the border for over an hour.  Namely, me.

Incidentally, new hotel's internet is appallingly shit.  It's like being back on dial-up.  WTF is this nonsense, I thought this place was 4*?

Maybe you look like a person of interest?

Perhaps it was because of your EU cred.

Happened to spot this earlier today. Pretty sure it's a bad sign.

Kind of lucky it was just an hour and not indefinitely. That seems popular there these days

In that case, I'd hope they'd run my passport to verify my ID.  Which they did not do.  In fact, they didn't even look at my passport, beyond my flashing it in their faces.

The whole episode was very bizarre.  I know they have had refugee and human trafficking problems, but the flow of people is from Serbia (where I also wouldn't want to flee to if I was a Muslim) into Hungary and then through the Slovakia/Czech corridor into Germany.  And I wsa entering from Slovakia, the complete opposite direction and side of the country.

I'm still considering writing up the event for the British Embassy in Hungary, even though I know they won't do anything about it because none of that will apply to us in another 18 months.

All that said, Budapest > Vienna.  Sure, the latter definitely has grasped the importance of grand scale...but Budapest understands everything should not be off-white in colour.  And has better beer.  And coffee, for all the Viennese go on about their cafe culture.

Oh ffs, this is from a VP blog, a different guy:

I hear too many victim-like comments from our organization every day -- "Finance and HR won't let me hire the people I need to finish the job."

Gonna take the Viking metaphor a bit differently if I ever see him.

So you should rape and pillage to acquire the resources you need?

Isn't that the basis of ayn Rand's shtick?
