Last class of the semester in an hour.

*pause for happy dance*

And now for the Big News:

You all know (do you?) that I'm currently working at the Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL), an NGO responsible for bringing forth cases to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Depending on a bunch of factors that I won't explain right now, the Commission, in its turn, may bring forth the cases to be analyzed by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.


The Court is located at San José, Costa Rica. They are, however, having an extraordinary session on August at Montevidéu, Uruguay. And I'm fucking going to be there! I seriously cannot believe it. I am actually going to the see the Real Thing.

*pause for another happy dance*

On a sadder note, Fluminense lost last night. They did play brilliantly, though, and it was a total shame they didn't win the Cup. The comments that have been dripping off the mouths of a bunch of retarded people who root for my team make me rather ashamed of loving Flamengo. While I can't help this love, sometimes I did wish Flamengo's supporters would just shut the fuck up. "Liga dos Urubus" is one of the most retarded things I've ever seen.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
