Death Threats

Extension, matrix exponents, sections and retractions... trying not to stress out. Going home. To bed. Looking forward to a productive day of work in the morning.


(Whatsapped) Death threats in the wee hours of the morning. Dum dee dum. Just another aspect of work with this crew, that I've grown accustomed to.

Who knows, but I hope people are merely joking. Where I come from (in the grand scheme of things), joking about killing just puts everyone in the room on killing guard - on guard to the point of being prepared to use lethal force in self-defense.

I guess that one only jokes about killing people, if one has no actual preparation to do so. But I have had the opportunity to kill in self-defense, with my bare hands, and I had decided at the time to abstain. Perhaps if I had killed the first guy, the other three guys would have jointly killed me afterwards. Who knows. I got away that time, less a few segments of a finger, and with a small fracture on my head, cowering behind a few tears and a crippled voice, designed to maximise my chances of survival.

Who knows whom would have won the fight. But I chose not to begin it, by merely shoving aside the first guy.

Who knows.



Up for a shift. Not much sleep down. Will try not to break anything.
