Scottish referendum

So, Scotland voted No in the referendum, which means that Scotland will stay in the union. I’m not scottish so I’ve tried to stay out of it all. But I think I would have voted no too if I had voted. Sure, it would have been awesome if Scotland could gain their independence, but from what I’ve seen during the election, I haven’t actually seen anything concrete as to what they would do if they actually had gotten it. “We’re gonna use our oil resources”, great, but that is not gonna last forever, about 35 more years I think I read somewhere. “We wanna keep the pound”, well, Westminster would never have let you do that. Lots of companies would have had to move, since most of their clientele is in the UK, and it makes more sense to have your business where your clients are, so a lot of people would probably have lost their jobs. I know several families that would have had to move down to England to be able to keep their jobs in case of a yes.

There are lot of other things as well, sure they had some good things too of course, had some good, concrete plans on how to run this country. They might have pulled it off, and been a great independent country, but I thinks it’s a bit risky to try to do it on mights and maybes.

But anyhow, I’ve been reading comments on news pages and whatnots, and I’m appalled at how people are behaving, “no true scotsman would have voted no” ehh, yes, you’re not less scottish just because you voted no, you just don’t think the same. And that the world is laughing at scotland, haha, no. They’re not, from what I’ve seen, most countries seems to think it was a good decision. “Only country to ever vote against their independence”, nope, not true, I believe Quebec has voted against it several times actually, Northern Ireland has voted against it, as well as a caledonia. 

I don’t care what you voted, but lot of these people that are commenting are behaving worse than toddlers. Grow up and make the best of the situation. The decision is made, now make it work. 

I think the next time the vote on this (and there will absolutley be a next time, maybe not in 20-30 years but it will happen) I hope they have everything sorted to pull it through.

But it doesn’t matter if you voted yes or no, everyone should try to make sure improvements are made in Scotland and I really hope Westminster keeps all their promises.

Peace out

  • French Friend: well, the total cost of me going to Med school is about 406 a year -
  • American Friend: THOUSAND?
  • French Friend: Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?

It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.

Amazing.

EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.
