So there is one forum’s game called “Associations”. What do you associate word “grass” with? If you are GIS-specialist than association would be “GIS” because of GRASS open-sourced and very powerful GIS, that was originally developed by US military forces and then given to the community when corruption ESRI took the upper hand in US army. But if you are just common jerk then it is possible that your association would be “weed”, isn’t it? Understandable. Actually it was a Russian forum and Russian word “трава” – grass that looks like “травка” – weed (and if you think that I’m talking about marijuana, then you’re wright completely wrong!).

But that was your’s associations, not mine. I associate this word with a “космодром” – space launching site. Why? Because there is one song (“Трава у дома” – Grass Near Home) from 1983 and there are lines about spacers who dreams not about space launching site or deep space, but about grass near their home. By the way it was my first movement inside my mom’s belly in 1983 when she was at the concert and this song played…

I have a strong nostalgia feeling when I hear this song or think about it. It was easy to find a video on YouTube (there are a lot of different videos for song). And I watched a modern version and… there was a comment…

“Great song! POLAND and RUSSIA brothers forever! Grettings from Poland. Fuck politician! Normal people in poland and in russian is OK. POLITICIAN is bad in all world. Politician begin War. Religion and piliticion is very bad because begin war, Example:  JEWISH vs ISLAM this is very stupid conflict. NO POLITICAN and NO RELIGION = NO WAR! sorry, i speak english little…” 

Such words are priceless… And it is difficult to understand this fact when you are too young and too proud of your country. So don’t listen to the fuckers in the TV when they tell you to hate someone from another country or that people from another country hates you. Politicians and priests are lying to take control over you and made you obey their will so they can gain more power and money. Just talk to aliens a bit more.

That was my thoughts on associations and grass… I want to prevent you from get completely bored and let you enjoy the “Трава у дома” song. Say “hello!” to 1983!
