An Orwellian state is here and guess what, we the masses have done it to ourselves. Ever since George Orwell's book "1984" people have talked about Big Brother and have looked for signs that the government was indeed further invading our privacy and controlling us. Well here we are in the year 2008 and it's not the Ministry Of Truth that's got me scared it's all those amateur paparazzi with their cool little cellphone cameras.
Damn you - damn you all to hell!
All you shutter bugs who like taking pics of people without their consent please take those camera equipped cellphones and see if you can get a nice high resolution pic of a black hole via uranus! Seriously, it's been a few years since I've awoke outside a house party in a puddle of my own vomit with my pants around my ankles and some girl's phone number (cellphone number ) written across my abdomen in high gloss red lipstick - all because of those damn cellphone cameras. It was bad enough back in the pre-cellphone camera days when people would gossip around the water cooler at work Monday morning about how funny I looked rolling around on the front lawn getting grass stains on my tighty whities. All the ammo they had back then was beer google tainted memories which they may or may not have remembered correctly or had even seen at all. I don't need the added pressure of thinking that some loooo-zer is going to take myth removing pics or video with their handy dandy cellphone camera while I'm getting funky like a monkey.
Step off dudes, put the cameras away and nobody will get hurt. If you're going take pics point the cameras at the people who deserve the attention - celebrities. Hulk Hogan rubbing sun block on his daughter's rump or football star Renaldo stepping out with a dudestress - that's camera/youtube worthy. Your married drunken friend doing body shots off a stripper or an up skirt shot of the boss's passed out secretary - that's not camera/youtube worthy and it's just not cool. Joe Average Citizen doesn't make enough money or live a fabulous enough lifestyle to deserve that kind of extreme public humiliation. From now on use the camera for family photos and pics of the Eiffel Tower only and let the Ministry Of Truth and their agents do their own dirty work.
^^^ However and Mississauga don't really mean that.
If you read between the lines what they are really saying is despite painting themselves blue, buttering their thighs to slip into faux leather micro mini skirts, and roller-blading through the local mall while trippin' on acid - nobody's paying attention and giving them their 15 mins
Speaking on behalf of the remaining unintentional fools I long for the days when people had better things to do than target the unwashed masses while playing paparazzi.
For example, some "oh look at my new cellphone camera take your picture" moron that I work with was going around taking some co-workers pics (yes, myself included) without the individuals consent. Later, these same co-workers discovered that this idiot was posting the aforementioned pics on facebook - not cool. That kind of stuff is fairly tame but in general it's getting way out of hand and is already causing people serious problems. Everyone's fair game? Obviously this is coming from someone whose privacy hasn't been invaded by the cellphone camera craze.
Now I'm wondering what goods somebody's got on skinnyboy.... :p
Nothing special - just pics of me at a Mexican resort wearing a thong bikini and rubbing sun block on a transvestites butt that I mistook for my wife/half-sister. Heat stroke and too many Coronas can lead to that.
