小说 “笙歌” 第六章 之(1)“蛆虫宴”

第六章之(一)「蛆蟲宴」
從腐屍身上,宋煥得到啟示:
萬萬不能讓兒子送終


腐屍不單止惡臭,還挺難搬運,不好處置。但由於環境所逼,大家都成了殯儀專家。
人體腐爛雖屬天然過程,卻很難聽其自然,任由消失。臭皮囊回歸天地過程中所發出的氣息,實在非筆墨所能形容。一個人過身後無人料理的話,雖未至於遺臭萬年,但也會臭足好幾個月。與一條透了的腐屍接觸後,會臭上好幾天,甚至整個星期後,那死亡回味仍然會在鼻腔與口水間徘徊。老馬每次搞完殮葬,都會用瑜伽小壺洗鼻,不過幫助不大。
早期過身的人,有家人朋友或者近鄰及時打理。漸漸,越來越多人孤零零地獨自腐化。
第一條單身腐屍是宋笙發現的。某天他閒來無事,在附近大夏搜索。這跟從前的人逛街購物一樣,旨在打發時間,找尋驚喜。到了干德道一棟大夏二樓,一陣惡臭把他引領到事主的單位。老婆婆彎著腰,頭頸塌胸前。人漿血水滲透了名貴的意大利沙發。屍體與襯墊上的大花紋拼在一起,有些恐怖的迷彩效果。宋笙打量一下後,跑回去將發現報告各父老。

Why they freed Ai Wei Wei 为何释放艾未未

I know why they freed Ai Wei Wei. 
Now, just my conspiracy theory: China knows that the International Human Rights Community has been kept unduly busy over Ai, and feels bad about it. It’s like wasting police resources over a petty thief while the big robber goes berserk bombing, torturing, murdering and looting unnoticed. Now that China has let Ai go, perhaps the force of  righteousness could be redirected at Guatanamo? Iraq? Afghanistan? Libya and . . . ? Sorry sorry, Libya doesn’t count. It’s a humanitarian mission aimed at protecting the Libyans; the Central Bank was just a sideline job, my apologies. But the rest is valid nonetheless, and a lot more is coming.
It’s a pity that Ai's going to miss his Nobel Prize though. For a while, I suspected that he was a Chinese trick to overwhelm the Nobel Prize with 60m mud squeezing artists and a few hundred thousand chanting monks, year after year after year. Evidently, I was being too cynical as usual . . .
我大概知道他们为何释放艾未未!
中国政府知道艾未未一事,令到国际人权分子忙不过来,所以没有时间监察美国在本土,“关塌哪妈”,伊拉克,阿富汗, 利比亚 。 。 。 等等等等 的人权状况。呃,等多一等,利比亚不算数。利比亚属于人道行为,因为 “噢斑马” 说过,去利比亚是为了拯救利国人民;第一时间搞了间 “美资利比亚中央银行” 只不过是附带任务,纯属巧合。反正我认为中国是觉得由于艾未未一个肥佬,搞到全世界团团转,有如浪费警力:试想,众家丁为了追个小扒手,任由汪洋大盗杀人放火抢劫兼强奸,无法无天,实在说不过去。所以良心发现,把老艾放了。
我本来希望中国会发动五六千万个会写新诗或捏泥公仔的同胞,和几十万不大会诵经的密宗和尚,把未来五十年的诺贝尔奖都由炎黄子孙承包下来,让挪威全国的空凳,通通派上用场。这个壮举,在当今国际形势之下,本来是大有成功希望的。无奈北京好像没有这份闲情和野心 。 。 。可惜,可惜。

Remember the Gulf of Tonkin? 有人记得东京湾吗?

Anyone remember the Gulf of Tonkin? Probably not. It worked. Therefore Vietnam. How many died? Anything done after the lie was declassified? Nope. Then 911. 

Hopefully, people won't just let this one go. The following links give us some hope. Some of the most conservative citizens of America are not letting this go. Conspiracy theorists? Uh, not your usual bunch anyway: Mostly engineers, military experts, many Republicans; British MP under Blair, and German MP who worked in the secret service; families of the 911 victims, etc.  Not a single conventional "radical" in case you wonder. 

When something so plainly impossible happens, yet so many are willing to believe the official story, or let it pass because they don't want to face the uncomfortable truth, atrocities much more terrible than Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya . . . WILL continue to happen. Why not? It works so well . . .
记得东京湾的人,大概不多了吧。难怪他们故技重施,变本加厉。东京湾导致美国正式介入越战,结果死了多少人?后来骗局解了密,大家已经忘记,都不再计较和追究。算了吧:所以又有911?


幸好,以上的链接给我们留了一点儿希望。还有不少美国人,锲而不舍,事隔多年,仍然在寻求真相。纽约的市民,正自费大卖电视广告,让人们冷静地重新再看清楚当年的“恐怖袭击”。他们不是一般的所谓阴谋论分子,甚至不是平常热中政治的“活跃人士”。大部分都是一向保守低调的工程师,建筑师,也有高级军人,甚至英国和欧洲的部长级政治家。以他们的专业判断,911的官方故事,大有蹊跷。再说白一点:根本不可能!


911 是一件历史性大事故,是一件违反基本科学原理的大事故,充满了好莱坞电影手法。假如大部分人都愿意相信,或因为没有勇气面对真相而放弃追究,那么更离谱的事情,将会继续发生,制造更多的战祸和悲剧。伊拉克,阿富汗,利比亚 。 。 。只不过是开始而已。

小說 “笙歌” 第五章 之(9)“皇后碼頭”


「皇后碼頭」
尊信究竟在皇后碼頭遇見了什麼,令他如此感動呢?


尊信記不起 在那裡看過一篇文章,說魚的記憶很短,只有幾秒鐘。
不可能吧!尊信不清楚科學家們用甚麼方法測試魚蝦蟹的記憶力和智商,但實際經驗告訴他這個結論不靠譜。他每天都準時來到這裡餵魚和造白日夢。維多利亞港從前每天吸納幾百萬個抽水馬桶的排放,現在退了休,變得晶瑩透澈,充滿活力。 
靠著岸邊有艘沈船。在裡面生活的魚群,很快便認得尊信的影子,知道會帶來一陣餅乾渣之類的魚糧。水底氣氛會頓時緊張起來,活像以前的股票交易所。只要他把餅乾一拋,魚群便一擁而上,在水面翻騰,噼里啪啦,好不熱鬧。繁忙穿梭的魚群,跟閃爍不定的營火一樣,有股催眠力量,可以令尊信定神看上一兩個小時。

Americans' Missing Trillions


I’ve never labelled anything a MUST READ; but I’m going to make an exception here. The following video (http://dailybail.com/home/there-are-no-words-to-describe-the-following-part-ii.html) is a MUST WATCH if you are puzzled by how they get away with the most rapacious scam in human history. The above hearing does not offer an answer to that. It does, however, reflect the extent of the helplessness of the American people. Unlike imperial subjects in the olden days, they’re supposed to wield control over their government. Evidently, that’s not the case.
Americans have no idea where their trillions (about $30,000 per US citizen, from babies to the near death) have vanished to since last September. Most are probably unaware that they have vanished. The Free Press has been keeping them occupied with war news, moral inadequacies of the rest of the world, terror-fantasies and sex scandals of conscientious young men and uncooperative old men (who allegedly forced their aging penises into resisting mouths full of sharp teeth). 
Kids of the poor are murdering and torturing in Iraq and Afghanistan, getting destroyed in return. Some ventured into Libya to clear the way for the establishment of a Central Bank (does it occur to anyone that it’s an odd priority?) Unbelievably, many actually believe they are in Libya to save lives, to punish yet another dictator! The pliability of human denial seems boundless, and scary. When people must believe - out of ignorance, fear, or a lack of choice - a well-constructed cover is superfluous. Logic and reason are an elitist game, appealing only to a minority. In a democracy, they are negligible. 
Observing contemporary mass denial in highly informed societies, one gets a chilling glimpse of how seemingly impossible atrocities happened in history, and will continue to happen in the future.
