The Principles of 'Garbage In, Garbage Out' and 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Say No Evil'


One doesn't have to know the meaning of the computing phrase "Garbage In, Garbage Out" in order to understand that whatever you feed yourself is what most probably will come out of you.

I am usually unaffected by these bullshits, but my friend once again kept on berating me on these matters. He is telling me that in order not to release an evil aura I should "See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil." What-the-hell-that-ever means? He said: Whatever the external stimuli are given you will definitely return back to the external environment.

Here are some pictures over the internet, which I don't claim ownership by the way, that put a twist to the phrase:

They are kind of bizarre and artistic at the same time like this book from Clive Barker entitled Abarat: Absolute Midnight, which is the third book from the series. John has almost lost interest of this series since the last book prior to this got out almost 6 years ago. That was a lot of years of waiting and I pity my friend for the long depression he has to go through just to take his hand on this one. Where did he ever get that patience that he can manifest on books but never on people and other lousy situations?

It was such a nice thing though that no matter how long you've waited, the troubles and the misfortunes that one has to go through seems like a far-away issue whenever it finally arrived. Lucky me I don't expect any bonuses because I am not working: I am imaginary after all, and I don't need money in order to survive. But if I ever get a bonus, I would definitely buy John the mass market edition of this book to alleviate his down feeling.
