Top five reasons why 'Ignorance is bliss'
You know how many people die everyday . How about Buddhist views on afterlife . You know the president of Peru . How about how many people have been imprisoned for life or given death because their views differed from established order . If you don't ,I am sure you are a happy . Here's why?
1. Look to the person on your left ,look at the person on your right . Now ask yourself - Are they smarter than my dog . In a world where most people are as intelligent as your dog ,do you think they will understand wisdom . If not , why are you trying to be wise . Ignorant people are happy because they can make friends , have better relationships and be admired by people around them.

2.Rank the following in terms of smartness . President Bush , Britney Spears , Your Dog . In a world where success is based upon the kind of hair products you use or how many cities you bomb
it is folly to be wise . Ignorance makes you successful. Front page on New York Times is at stake.

3. Do you know how many weapons are sold everyday . How many people are killed in Gun battles . The no. of nuclear bombs. Any day the president of U.S might want to incinerate the people of developing nations just for fun and nobody will question. You know what could happen if our P.M were to make some bad decisions . Do you think all these people are smarter than your dog . Ignorant people are happy because they don't know how much power other ignorant people have .Ignorance makes you feel safe.
4. We have political freedom in our country Yes! But it is not allowed by constitution to speak ,write etc. against your country . Do you think you would follow all the stupid laws our lawmakers make if you were wiser . Ignorance is bliss because it keeps you ignorant about life in jails .
5. Who won World war2 ,the allies, really? Weren't these guys supporting freedom and democracy . And they used a nuclear bomb to kill civilians even though the war had almost ended. Ignorance is bliss because it helps you to find a right where everything is wrong .It helps you in taking decisions.

If you reached here ,you really need to read the article again. Concentrate on the parts where I say 'Ignorance is bliss.'
Ignorance has all the virtues but one great vice , It makes you a slave .
Knowledge is the only way to freedom .

Very nice! I am the writer of “Top 5 things to do in Istanbul” This was my first group activity, but i liked it very much.

Have you ever been to Istanbul which links east to west, and west to east like a weblink. Istanbul played such a critical role in the world politics and culture throughout the history.

Now i have a dream i would like to share with you and Darren Rowse. All the Probloggers should meet at Istanbul and join the 29th edition of the Eurasia Marathon on Sunday 28th of October, 2007.

Let’s meet where the continents meet : As the Istanbul Eurasia Marathon starts from the Anatolian side while taking the runners to the most beautiful spots of town, signing its name under a touristic attraction as well. The Bosphorus is one of the most beautiful spots on the world and as you run through it, history of the centuries run with you on the streets.

I joined the 28th Intercontinental Istanbul EurAsia Marathon on 5th of November, 2006 together with my friends, Joe and Suat San. We enjoyed the wonderful Bosphorus, and beautiful streets of Istanbul on a cold but sunny Sunday morning. The slogan for last year’s marathon was “let’s run for a non-smoking world”.

this was my blog post for last year’s marathon:

I would be happy to invite you to the 29th Intercontinental Istanbul Eurasia Marathon, the only marathon to run between two continents - Europe and Asia. Istanbul is one of the oldest settlements on the world. What about participating in the 29th EurAsia Marathon in 2007 which takes place in the most beautiful places of a wonderful city that has been the capital of three empires ?

You may find details about the marathon here:
