People just don't give a shit anymore

     Whether it comes to manners, politeness, or just general human decency people in this country just don't give a shit anymore. Before I delve to deep into this rant, I'm not trying to come off as this angel humanitarian. I can be just as much of an asshole as anyone else, but in the end I actually care what people think of me, and I try to correct my actions accordingly. Most people don't care what others think about them. Case in point the king of the douchebags, Canada's worst of all possible imports, teen shithead Justin Bieber. Day in and day out you see his disgusting antics unfold on just about every entertainment news show. One day he's pissing in a restaurant mop bucket, another he's doing 80 miles an hour in his Lamborghini in a residential neighborhood, and the next day he's hotboxing (smoking weed in a confined space with no ventilation) a plane so bad to the point the pilot needs to wear an oxygen mask. His reaction to all this is laughter. This is a guy who millions of children look up to and inspire to be like. There are to many examples of celebrities who act like this that it's not worth bringing up. Celebrities are just one part of the problem when it comes to not giving a shit.

     Here's another example, I'm sitting in the library one day and a few seats away from me is a man eating a bag of chips while he surfs the web on his laptop. As the security guard is making his rounds he notices this and politely informs the man no food is allowed in the library and asks the man to take it outside. The security guard walks away and the man then decides to put the chips in his backpack and continues on crunching away. About 15 minutes pass and the man has made zero attempts to follow through with the security guards request, and here he comes on his next set of rounds. Mind you I'm in a position that I can see the guards point of view to this guy, and just as he comes into the guards view he has his hand in his bag pulling out a few chips as he shovels them into his mouth. I'm thinking "the guard is gonna ream his ass", and to my surprise does absolutely nothing. Even the security guard didn't give a shit. Maybe I'm wrong and analyze this behavior incorrectly, but hey guess what I don't give a shit either at this point. 

     It's nice to see commercials like these "acts of kindness" ones with the man stopping his car in front of a crosswalk to help an old lady cross the street. It shows there are some people who want this behavior to stop. The problem is this generation of the "everyone's a winner" mentality they are raised in. A teacher can't discipline a child in school anymore without a parent bitching out said teacher for disciplining their shitty kid and threatening a lawsuit. That is the problem, and the moral of this story. Parenting. In a world were there are celebrities like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Rhianna who could care less about being a role model for their young fans, or people who just have no respect for authority parenting has never been more important now than it ever has. These people aren't going to change, the only thing that we can hope for is people parent their children properly so the next generation won't be such douchbag fuckwads.

Meth....It's a hell of drug!

     The question "Why do so many people in Las Vegas abuse Crystal Meth?" should be an easy question to answer for most people. The 24 hour lifestyle, the easy access to cheap prostitutes infected with canceraids (a disease I made up), or the fact that at every corner of this city are shiny singing slot machines begging "touch me touch me touch me, If you give me money, I might give you more money to buy even more Meth with". I understand this is "Sin City", but I've been living in this city for 12 years now and it still blows my mind how many people use this drug. You can literally take a stroll through any of the endless weekly apartments in this town and see these people for yourself. Any resident who has lived in this town for more than 2 years can point them out. Skinny frame, sucked in cheeks with blossoming acne they can't wait to pick off their face, and of course the famous bug eyes with dark circles around them as if they haven't slept since Bush was still in office. Don't get me wrong, If the drug makes you happy and you're only affecting your life and no one else's, then whatever, more power to you. I'm a firm believer in everyone needing some form of release from the world we live in whether it be Meth, Weed, Alcohol, or even Religion. To me though meth just seems to be a whole other animal in this city, and the way it looks it will stay that way for years to come.

     Honestly, this drug scares the shit out of me. When I first moved out here I heard of meth, but was never really around it. Coming from Boston everything was Weed, Alcohol, Cocaine, and pills so again I had zero exposure to Meth. Anyways I met a guy at a job I got and he was clean as they come. He came from a good home, great family, liked to unwind and smoke a joint after work, overall my kind of guy. He got fired from the job after a few months of me being there. Completely unrelated to anything involving any kind of drugs. Well a couple of years pass, me being a seasoned Vegas veteran at this time and able to spot a tweeker on the street from the top of the Stratosphere bump into him. It absolutely floored me seeing what a transformation he went through due to Meth. All the classic symptoms as mentioned above. He even offered me a hit of Meth. Needless to say I politely declined. The moral of this story is, there's a lot of god damn Meth in Las Vegas. Weed is practically legal here now and can even have it delivered to you legally. My advice, stick with weed if that's what your doing. Like the subject of this post says, Meth it's a hell of a drug!
