Pickpick

A dark and disturbing look at what lies in the deep. This book started out a bit slow and derivative. I kept being pulled out of the story...”oh, that reminds me of”...now, back to the story. But the book eventually came into its own and made it a pick. I will never be able to look at guinea pigs the same way ever again (See my post for #QuotsyDec18 | 7: #Magnetic ). And the bees, oh, the bees.

LiterRohde So sorry for the repost! It disappeared from my feed! 12mo
TheKidUpstairs I don't think I want to know about the guinea pigs.... 12mo
LiterRohde @TheKidUpstairs And @Cinfhen said on my original post before it disappeared that I had her at guinea pigs...🤣 (edited) 12mo

“All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is #magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted.” #QuotsyDec18

“With aching slowness, the split halves of the guinea pig began to inch back toward each other. They‘re trying to reattach. They want to make the guinea pig whole again.”

AlaMich Yeah, not so much these days. 😔 14mo
Andrew65 @AlaMich That‘s a shame! 14mo
AlaMich @Andrew65 It is indeed. Though I think it is still true of most of my fellow US folks. 14mo

Andrew65 @AlaMich I feel Trump has a big part to play in this, but not American so who am I to comment! 14mo
jb72 There is the other side of the argument. I‘m a middle of the road conservative. I feel like Trump is trying to do what he thinks is best so that America can continue to be generous. I don‘t always agree with him (or any other President), but I feel like it‘s important to always be positive and hopeful. 14mo
Andrew65 @jb72 When will we ever agree with all that politicians do. Can‘t really speak about politics at the moment being English because our government doesn‘t seem fit for purpose at the moment! 14mo
jb72 @Andrew65 True...we will never all be on the same page, but we can hope to at least be in the same chapter at times. Politics is a subject I normally keep my opinions to myself, but I‘m definitely intrigued by some stuff happening in France. 14mo
Andrew65 @jb72 At the moment with British politics I‘m not even sure people are on the same book! French situation is really bizarre and worrying at the same time. 14mo
jb72 @Andrew65 it is very worrying. When did rioting become ok? It‘s scary to think in this day and age violence has become the norm. I wish I knew more about British politics, but I can barely keep up with my own. 14mo
Andrew65 @jb72 Believe me you don‘t want to know when they are so publicly arguing about Brexit! Amazing how quickly violence has developed in France! Never the way. 14mo
AlaMich @Andrew65 No, I absolutely agree with you! I think Obama‘s election gave rise to an us vs. them mentality, but Trump‘s election created an atmosphere of permission to express those feelings. It‘s not very hard to convince people they need to be afraid of The Other. 14mo

#QuotsyDec18 Day 7: The #Magnetic pool of positive energies. Surround yourself with positivity regardless of how bleak everything seems to be. What keeps me positive at the moment is the thought of the #BigBadWolf book sale in KL which I will be visiting next week!
