there is only one thing better than eating a manderin.. eating Amanda-OUT! (thanks for the joke, Greg). However, it was CJ who said (as i was eating a pile of amandas) "you should stick the skins back together and sell them bro". This got me thinking about how we really do just get sold the shittest stuff that is legally acceptable. i highly recommend viewing a documentry called 'the lightbulb conspiracy' it looks into corporate planned obsolescence, which is one of those pointless human activities that needs immediate review.


its the great mandarin heist, carried out in broad daylight, an open wooden crate, and for sale sign, all there is is empty skins inside, full of air and lies, now they're bumping up the price, just to make them seem allright, they sell them to us anyway, and catch us unsuspecting, with a 50 page disclaimer that we aknowledge out of anger, yeah well, now we know they grow on trees, well be havin ours for free, because the ones you sold me... allt he mandarins they were empty.
and if theres nothing left, BLURHG, i'll just eat insects, iv been sweatin like a horse, and i'll just let it run its course, and one thing that has come to light, is brothers, sisters, husbands, wifes, they've been selling off there time, trading money in for life, nothin new is built to last, everything is obsolecent, stick to doing one thing well, you wont starve if you grow them for yourselves.
