Once again – we celebrate the crucifixion of Christ.

April 4, 2010

I do believe there is a huge possibility that the character Jesus Christ is based on a real historical person. I do believe that a person with such a subversive (for the Roman government, for the commercial and religous ‘powers that be’ of the time) worldview could be construed as some sort of rebel or enemy of society. I find it highly possible that a guy like that might be crucified in the period around 0-33 AD.
However – I do not really believe that you can be ressurrected from the dead – so what easter is really about is celebrating that some guy with radical ideas was killed on the cross 2000 years ago.
Approximately the same as if a guy – say the Timothy McVeigh, or Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (who will be on trial in New York for the 9/11 terrorist attack) is executed by the state and then in a few hundred years is placed in a different historical context. If that were to happen, people might be celebrating the electric chair like the cross is celebrated…
However I appreciate having the easter vacation, and do not mind eating and drinking a little extra at a traditional ‘easter lunch’… So Cheers – lets celebrate the crucifixion of Christ once again – lets eat, drink and be merry, for Jesus Died!

IT-developers will be the ‘Disgruntled Postmen’ of the future.

August 6, 2009

In the recent shooting in Pittsburgh (cool name, Pittsburgh, by the way) an IT-developer went crazy after many years of sexual starvation, and working with IT.

The killer was an IT developer who actually did not look too bad:

The guy seemed actually like an okay guy – some of his writings are a bit banal, but not in any way ‘Sick’ or ‘Evil’ as some people might expect.  Apparently the reason was simly dissatisfaction with the fairer sex (and we all share that so…)

I think the key to understanding this killer is not just his ‘hatred towards women’ but rather the fact that he was working with IT – Angryton hereby makes a prediction: in the coming decades we will see more and more IT workers crack up and come to the office (or mall, or fitness center) blazing. Being an IT-developer will be perceived as an eerie job, with a high probability for snapping and going on a homicidal/suicidal killing spree.

The term ‘Going Postal’ will be used more and more about workers from the IT industry… As a former colleague of mine said:”IT eats my soul”.

Excerpt from the killers online-  Journal:

August 3, 2009:
I took off today, Monday, and tomorrow to practice my routine and make sure it is well polished. I need to work out every detail, there is only one shot. Also I need to be completely immersed into something before I can be successful. I haven’t had a drink since Friday at about 2:30. Total effort needed. Tomorrow is the big day.

Unfortunately I talked to my neighbor today, who is very positive and upbeat. I need to remain focused and absorbed COMPLETELY. Last time I tried this, in January, I chickened out. Lets see how this new approach works.

Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell. Christ paid for EVERY sin, so how can I or you be judged BY GOD for a sin when the penalty was ALREADY paid. People judge but that does not matter. I was reading the Bible and The Integrity of God beginning yesterday, because soon I will see them.

I will try not to add anymore entries because this computer clicking distracts me.

Also, any of the “Practice Papers” left on my coffee table I used or the notes in my gym bag can be published freely. I will not be embarased, because, well, I will be dead. Some people like to study that stuff. Maybe all this will shed insight on why some people just cannot make things happen in their life, which can potentially benefit others.
