LEGO Day With Monkey-B ๐Ÿ—๏ธ Keeping My Inner Child Alive ๐Ÿ‘ท๐Ÿ‘ทโ€โ™€๏ธ & Some Bad Humor Too

Monkey-B approached me today to let me know that nobody ever plays with her anymore, so I told her to go grab the LEGOs and get creative.

๐Ÿ‘ณโ€โ™‚๏ธ Dad Still Knows How To Play

ย  ย  ย Due to the fact that 100% of our family income is a direct or indirect result of our Hive earnings, it's hard to tell Monkey-B I am not free to play at any given time. Hive has given us the ability to be self-employed regardless of our location, although the high cost of living and US dollar shortage in Suriname hasn't allowed us to live comfortably from these earnings yet.

ย  ย  ย Now that my wife and I have decided to separate so that we can be together again in Cambodia, I have been getting in the habit of doing some of the things I will be free to do in Cambodia after we reunite. Our passive income from yield farming beyond Hive is already enough to keep our heads above water in Cambodia.

ย  ย  ย This means when I return to Cambodia, Hive will no longer be a job where I feel I must post every day or lose more of our savings. I think this economic freedom will make Hive new, fresh, and more fun than it has ever been before. With this in mind, I tried to build a tuk-tuk from LEGOs, and it was a partial success.

ย  ย  ย After figuring how to make a three-wheeled frame, I began randomly adding pieces until an idea crystalized in my head. The recent Haitian migrant crisis in Texas reminded me of why there is much less food in Suriname. The Haitians that arrived in Texas illegally left from Suriname because the conditions here for them were unlivable.

ย  ย  ย Suriname lost its greatest asset when the Haitians left, for they alone were responsible for a major chunk of the food production here. I was saddened to see how they were greeted in the USA, met with horses and whips, creating scenes reminiscent of things I hoped were 400 years in the past.

๐Ÿ›บ The Anti-Migrant LEGO Squad ๐Ÿ‘ฎ

5.JPG

ย  ย  ย Wait a minute, this post is about LEGOs, I promise. While Monkey was working on her house with many hidden rooms, I began creating an anti-migrant scene with my LEGO vehicle and some other pieces. Because we've been stranded abroad for three years, I decided to turn my tuk-tuk into an anti-migrant vehicle complete with onboard detention facilities.

6.JPG

ย  ย  ย So here it is, my masterpiece. The horseback and anti-migrant tuk-tuk are holding back some other fellow LEGO people from crossing an imaginary line created by other LEGO people who lived hundreds of years ago. The LEGO migrants are pleading that this is one house, and that when their grandparents were alive there was no boundary between the kitchen and living room.

7.JPG

ย  ย  ย With some kind of futuristic racist handheld laser cannon and a megaphone, the leader of the anti-migrant squad reminds the LEGO migrants that he and his team are only doing their job, just enforcing the law. The LEGO migrants counter by reminding him that they are all made of the same Danish plastic.

8.JPG

ย  ย  ย The LEGO migrants ultimately turn back, deciding not to go somewhere where they are not welcome. Little did the anti-migrant squad know, while they were distracted with the LEGO ladies, several hundred other fellow LEGO migrants managed to cross over 10 tiles to the east.

9.JPG

ย  ย  ย Monkey-B was not amused at all by humor, and she kept increasing the size of her lady fortress, which apparently is some kind of K-Hole mansion or suicide cult, I'm not sure. Perhaps everyone is just sleeping too, maybe my imagination is getting the best of me.

10.JPG

ย  ย  ย Okay, sorry for getting way off topic, I had originally planned for cute LEGO post. Well, that is the beauty of Hive, I can be real with you all instead of trying to appeal to a mainstream group of readers. This post was inspired by the twisted humor of @davidke20 and the storytelling abilities of @vincentnijman.

Good move to start making plans to go back, life has been tough on the family Justin.

Wishing you passage soon to reunite the family, enabling you to return to a life better suited to you all.

Borders and hidden fear is so 400 hundred years ago, ask these pandemic where the border is perhaps!

A decentralized planet would sure make things easier for human freedom of movement. You're right, we could've approached this pandemic with a new mentality that borders are useless, but so far us stubborn humans are still clinging to imaginary lines, as if we all aren't on spaceship Earth together.

Thanks for stopping by my friend, and the encouraging words, and the snacks too.

Imaginary lines in the ground, with pompous idiots controlling most, yes life could be easier, but we still living in a ritualized world.

Go well, stay well!

I was reading halfway through the immigrant fight back part and thought, this is so me ๐Ÿ˜‚ and thanks for mentioning towards the end of the post.

The lady fortress? I think monkey B relate it as a chilax building, many girls go in, eat some colorful mushroom and started to hallucinating.

Awesome, I love Lego. We still got two big boxes full of Lego in my Mums cellar. It's not for nothing that the packaging says 3-99 years

It is really one of the few toys to remain unchanged in many ways for so many years. I am so glad that my daughters have interest in LEGOs despite all the screen-based distractions in this modern world.

That's your way of telling your story and of so many others...
Imagine your story being curated 100 years later, to tell that though technology has advanced, human nature not so much. Although, I'm still hopeful...

I'm hopeful as long as I don't watch any of the trending music videos. It's when I see the kind of debauchery that has become mainstream that I feel we are living out the plot to "Idiocracy".

Hahaha yeah Idiocracy ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚.
But that's true though, I don't watch many mainstream music videos, only read/watch the news every so often to just stay updated, but not everyday anymore. Otherwise I'll shake my head so many times, it'll almost fall off ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ™ƒ.

You are certainly the only person in the world that ever created an anti migrant tuk tuk. Great job!

Thanks for the laughs before work.

This humor would not be well received among my facebook friends, but Hivers have a much better sense of humor. Glad I brought you some giggles.

When we purchase another tuk-tuk, we won't be using it for anti-migrant missions, but instead we'll try and travel as much as possible with it. Thanks for the kind words my friend.

Hahha.. it's good to have Monkey B enjoy building stuff with Lego. These bricks are great.

It's cool to have a 100 percent income from Hive. But I do agree that when ur back in Cambodia, you will be able to continue your rice business. And hive will be something fun to do. That's hive for me at the moment. My investing income and my part time little hustles here and there make up my income and hive is slowly become a great add on. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ I guess you won't be missing Suriname anytime soon except for Harry. Have a great day. just cracking some fun... ๐Ÿ˜€

Like you, Hive for us will be part of a bigger picture, and I think it will give us the economic freedom to allow us to pursue other streams of income that make us happy, and may not necessarily be the most profitable. I really miss turning Khmer people onto brown rice, as it's not something that's been popular for over 50 years there.

We've made one close human friend in Suriname, and one non-human friend (Harry), and if they could both join us in Cambodia, there would be zero reasons to ever think about this country ever again. Sorry I get so negative when I talk about Suriname, but I can believe there is a country where you can spend three years walking the streets every day and only make one friend. That would never happen in any Southeast Asian country, even Singapore.
