Resize Picture in Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)

That only sparkled my resentment against it. So I had a break. A long one. I had to discover myself who I was, what to believe in and to what extent my moral state would be inclined toward good/moral and evil. Then I studied the religion I’ve inherited and filtered it through my engineering mind. I am the analytical type with logic dictating my reasoning. I also enjoy philosophy and to a certain extent psychology.

After a few years I’ve stamped “green” on my ethical resume. It was pretty obvious for a person with certain morality to think of the planet, of the land we’re intoxicating, of the air we’re polluting. But there had to be a Word for it. We needed tagging, we needed something else rather than what we already had. We needed a new « Read the rest of this entry »
