  1. Logbook to a resentment (part V)

    Santa Cruz has grown. As I get around a little bit I can tell that it is no longer the dusty town that I knew 18 years ago and where you expected any time for tumbleweed to go by. Sure, it still has some oddities that are without explanation: just today, as I sat eating lunch, a horse went by the street, trotting with no saddle, no reigns and obviously no idea of where it was going. Nor an indication that it was nervous about that fact.
    I am lodged, for the first few days, in a small hotel ...

    Did you know that Bolivia is landlocked?
    Well, once you land in here, it is difficult to miss the fact. Right above the luggage carrousel there is a big sign that proclaims that Santa Cruz will be (although the date has already passed) the center for some conference for countries without maritime borders, of which surprisingly there are like 40. The sign proclaims some interesting things, the main one being that there are no great countries without access to an ocean. There is also a world ...

    So how do I feel about going back to work? I know that I should feel a certain level of gratitude and I do. And I should also feel a certain level of relief, and I do.

    But of course, the joke is not on me. To think that the universe would actually give a flying **** about you is the opposite of what I have described above. It is the same logic as those people that believe that God actually cares about them downloading 5 million protozoan squiggly things on a hanky after 5 minutes of self-eroticism, so to think that such is the case is ridiculous.
    No. The joke is on 500,000 people all around the world, roughly the number of workers that have been dumped ...

  5. Logbook to a resentment (part I)

    For a man that prides himself of having a minimum understanding of the size and magnitude of the universe, being led to insignificance is not something that is hard to achieve. We all know the data and the figures: if one were to compare the entire universe to a single beach, the solar system would not even be a grain of sand. Earth would be impossible to find. And a human being, any human being, would be nothing more than bacteria floating in the air. The scales of time are equally impressive. ...
