Mental

Post by andybox » Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:55 am

Can’t post pics, Mendi locals have burnt a Nui Guinea Air Dash 8 to the ground due to an issue with election results or similar (sketchy news reports). Not satisfied with a government owned aircraft (recriminations will be harsh) , they’ve burnt down the education department building, the health department building and a few houses.
This country is fucking mental.

Besides the usual chaos, pretty quiet in these parts today, besides another double throat slitting at a Cape Town Mosque this morning.

The perpetrator was shot dead.

What kind of danger pay premium are you making there?

My colleague asked me to join her for a bank project there-short term consulting. Danger premium was like 40% or something. I said no. They routinely kidnap the bank branch managers.

Back in our compound, apparently Mendi is in lockdown. Banks closed, flights to and from Mendi cancelled. Air Niugini is a government run airline, the riot squad will take retribution on behalf of the prime minister. That’s how it works here, burn down villages until the guilty party are either found or given up by someone who’s house is going to be burnt down.

Sorry, I posted Andy's pictures without knowing that dbrother had already done that because I have dbrother foed due to his avatar. Anyway, I am told dbrother has already posted them so I've now deleted my copies.

Anyway, get the fuck out of there as soon as you can, Andy!

What, like get a plane ticket out of there or something?

(And what's wrong with my avatar!?!)

Btw, good to see you are still with us Andy, and hadn't ended up in a pot of stew or something...

Andy, sadly it seems to me you've found yourself in one of those places on the fringes of nowhere were batshittery prevails.

Spare a thought for those poor impoverished souls who are permanent inhabitants of that region, where no-one actually gives a shit about their fate. The western bubble dwellers have become totally consumed by micro-aggressions, and how that affects their lives.

The outer limits have now become completely ignored by the shrill hashtag army, while the Heart of Darkness continues to thrive, consuming forgotten souls. They are the forgotten ones.

Another example:

https://www.news24.com/Africa/News/pics ... k-20180614

http://clubofmozambique.com/news/mozamb ... im-report/

As you begin to adapt to your new surroundings, and become accustomed to the fact that you are now far removed from any form of normality, you WILL start drinking heavily, but you ultimately you as time goes by, you WILL begin to experience the pure joy of madness..

One wonders who profits from consumed souls, profits from forgotten ones. I'd wager that they don't ignore the outer limits or give a damn about consuming forgotten souls. Realpolitik, innit?
