Dark humor anyone?

As I am an IB student, it is obligatory that I write an essay of 4,000 words (max) called the Extended Essay which can be about a topic of my own choice. Since I chose to do Kurt Vonnegut, I thought that I have to at least mention his talent of using dark humor in his works. So I searched about "dark humor" and randomly (of course) came across this quote:

"The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death. What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, and you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating... you finish off as an orgasm."

--George Carlin

I totally agree. This quote will change my life forever. 


P/S: I found out 10 minutes ago that Christian Bale is Welsh/English. Thank goodness for Wikipedia.

Interesting enough?

Okay, so. A couple days ago, a friend of mine gave me some feedback about my blog. Well, what he read off my blog anyway, which was like ONE sentence, "The point of me making this blog is not to talk about my life." That was all he read and then asked me, "Then why are you making a blog?". And here's how the rest of the conversation went:

o now, I am going to try to prove to him that this blog IS about my life even though I am not talking about it directly AND that it is entertaining. If it is at least interesting for him, then I will be very satisfied because I at least made ONE person entertained/happy.

Oh, wait! Well, looky here, I guess this blog IS about my life. HAH! (Now is the part where he takes back what he said). As the respectable, well-known, journalist on Kazakh television would say:
