Taking justice into your own hands

It's not usual to see people taking justice with your own hands, but sometimes it happens. Today (04/20/10) I was watching Wagner Montes (as always) and he showed a report about an old man blocking a thief that was trying to run away. Nobody got injured and the asshole could escape. The guy was armed with a gun but he didn't use it. Taking this episode just for an example, I ask: Should we do the same thing in our life?

It's a difficult question to answer because it depends on the situation. In a violent world like ours, the best advice is: don't react! However, sometimes the thief sucks so bad that we can do our part. If he is alone and not armed, you can try a fight XD. That's why I never leave home without my penknife but, I'll only use it if the guy tries to rob or hurt me because I'm protected by the law.

For the normal people I repeat: don't react! Just for me and the others who like seeing bad guys dying is a good idea, under those circunstances of course. SCRUBS MUST DIE, and when this happens, the world will be a better place.

Church in conflict with Lady GaGa

A lot of things have been said about Lady GaGa. Some people think that she's only a crazy singer that wants to make money being polemical. Other people think that she's a bad singer that has become famous because of her style. The problem is: What does the Church say about her?
I've done a research on the web to find out this, and I've discovered a lot of curious things. Some religious say that she's a leader who will make a revolution of the devil on the earth. They say she's spreading evil among all the people who follow her. On the other hand the fans are defending Lady GaGa, and believe that she is only breaking taboos, fighting for the gay rights, saying her real opinion about the facts, and sparking of envy. And how will we know what's true or not?
Let's talk about one of her videoclips, "Bad Romance".
I've received a e-mail about this video, saying that the images represents a ritual of iniciation for a kind of god. It says that all of her clothes, attitudes and decoration of the videos have a meaning. What really amazes me is that everything I've read makes sense (but I don't have an informed opinion about the truth of the text).
I've found some news about a Church in Kansas, whose followers were going to stage a protest outside of Lady Gaga's concert. They say that the singer is teaching young fans to glory in their shame.
Here is the answer of Lady GaGa: "My fans deserve a place where weird people are accepted." "We preach the love and the preach the truth."
It's up to us to make our own conclusion.

Parents x friends: who is the best to travel with ?

When we talk about traveling, we can say that it's a time to relax and do whatever we want. But sometimes when you're a teenager, this time can be very different from what you're thinking. For example, if you travel to a very boring place with your parents, and they keep saying what you "need" to do there, it'll be a very bad trip. On the other hand, if you travel with your friends, you're able to do everything you want: go everywhere, do everything, you feel like you're free.
In my opinion, it's very good to travel with your friends, because you feel independent and older. But if your parentes aren't boring, the travel with them can be good too. In case they don't care about what you wanna do in the travel, you can tell them everything you thing it's important and convince them that your opinion is important too.
