WELCOME TO THE FIGHT CLUB

Yesterday I saw my first street fight in Lithuania. I was coming home from the supermarket and just 100meters from my house there were two guys punching and kicking in the face another guy. It looked very weird cause the guy on the floor was kind of laughing at them while they were kicking him. It looked surreal, violent but in a weird way. And the all thing was happening in Laisves aleja (Liberty Boulevard), Kaunas main street basically.

There were two girls screaming to stop and I think they were part of the same group, were they all friends?
What I know for sure  is that it lasted maybe a minute, 3-4 kicks in the face and some punch. And no one of the people around did or said anything.
I was on the phone talking about work and I didn’t do anything. And no one around did do anything or called the police or tried to stop these two guys kicking the other guy on the floor.

Why I didn’t do anything?
I thought it wasn’t my business…but also these two guys looked violent,  the kind of dangerous people that you don’t want to mess with.

For sure (for sure?) I would have done something if the victim was a friend but in this case, maybe they were even right? Was the guy trying to steal from them? I don’t know and I will never know.

I thought about this for a while yesterday night and then I forgot. I am glad I am still thinking about it this morning, it makes me feel more human, more empathic.
Even if I didn’t do anything and probably I should have.

What would you have done?

FEAR OF UNPLUGGING THE CHARGER

I have to admit, I am obsessed! I go crazy when it comes to unplug any device that is charging.

Simone, my roommate when I was living in Finland, became so afraid of unplugging my Mac. And  now also his wife is afraid…cause he is spreading the terror!

I always terrify my girlfriend when she unplugs it, mostly by accident. How can I cure myself?

I believe that any time I unplug a device, not fully charged, the battery dies just a little bit.

This morning I stayed home an extra hour just because my phone wasn’t fully charged and I waited I waited I waited until I saw 100% on the screen.

Am I wrong? am I right? Tell me I am not alone in this, tell me there are other people sick as I am. And please tell me how to cure my obsession and how to stop wasting my life worrying about my batteries.

Fuck the batteries!

SCIENCE OF PERSUASION

I already read the book, actually the books, both books on persuasion by Robert Cialdini and you should definitely check them out.

I am not sure if they made me more persuasive, I believe they did. But for sure they made me more aware of how people try to be persuasive and sometimes manipulate me and how to respond to defend myself and often save lot of money 😉
