It's time to take this bull by the horns and milk it.

Thoughts and observations of an Enneagram Type 7 INFP Beatles fan. I prefer baths to showers, late nights to early mornings, cats to dogs, and Mary Ann. The perfect blog for all featherless bipeds.

Gooblek is a 2-to-1 suspension of cornstarch in water. It acts like a liquid if you move it slowly, but a solid if you hit it or squeeze it. Click below for info on Asparagus Pee.

Asparagus Pee?

Don't give it to them.

Don't give it to them.

OK, so they tried to drop some planes by blowing up some Gatorade™ bottles.

I balked a little when Mr. Bush said that if we change our way of life, they win. Now given, he was talking about things like not going to Disneyland™ or your local shopping mall, or the Olympics(™?), and that would have really screwed up the party next summer at the Bohemian Grove.

But, really, we have to grow up about this. Don't get me wrong — we should never fail to pursue and prosecute the "perps" to the full extent of justice (and please notice I did not say, "the law").

We can't accept terrorism, but neither can we paralyze ourselves by locking down airports or disallowing "all liquids" on flights.

I have been criticized here at home for saying stupid shit like, "Hey, I'm not worried about flying back from Washington D.C. on my birthday, 'cause if you're on a plane that goes down coming back from D.C. on your birthday, what a great story!" I mean, everybody dies (you knew that, right?), so, compared to a long and drawn out cancer-without-medical-marijuana death, not that bad?

Assume the attack had been successful — there are about 6000 flights in the air at any given time (they showed a map on Primetime™ with a little red spot for every plane in the air that looked like that famous satellite shot of the cities all lit up), so those "as many as 3000 civilian deaths" would be way fewer than people who are just dying anyway from stupid shit like car accidents and old age.

I'm really really glad that those assholes were thwarted by the system, but they screwed up thousands of people a day every day for years, and I had to watch a Primetime™ about it, so they won.

And that's my rant.

My Own Private Idaho

I try to respect our leader. I really do, but once again, courtesy of The Lady Janet, a well-written, if slightly biased, article about Mr. Bush's shortcomings: My Private Idaho - New York Times.

Update: This turned out to be a pretty rich vein, what with the reference to an old Keanu Reeves movie that I corrected in the title of this post to match the B-52s song it was named after (I think Maureen Dowd was concerned about copyright issues, but she got the point across). There's a lot more stuff about the movie on IMDB, and be sure to check the quotes page too.

This is good

Here's an idea I saw over at Idea a Day, where ideas are free:

Allow voters in a political election to cast a vote against a candidate. Voters would still only get one vote, but each "against" vote would nullify a "for" vote.

I think this might help.
