Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
shopping is where people go to herd, rub shoulders and reassure each other that showing up to fellate the corporate stockholders and suck on the barbiturate tit of mammon, is the thing to do...warm, cosy, mmmm, comfortably numb....deeper.....pseudo death-experience... thanatic orgy, grim and joyless, baked in the shiny, icy glare of soulsapping anti-light, slow-roasted with a muzak glaze...

i love shopping too

Whatever I say in discussions seems to be chinese to others, so I will have to memorize your paragraph and quote it; I´ll see if that works.

Our knowledge has surpassed our wisdom. -Charu Saxena.
