Subject:Highway to the danger zone
Time:12:54 pm.
http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2008/jul/01/summer-movies-hit-the-roof-this-month/

At least some of the people who might see this live in the area this is happening, so chances are, statistics will narrow it down to just me, as far as livejournalists, though I haven't been much of one, as of late.

Still, tomorrow night, I'll feel the need.
The need for speed.

In other news (read: in the news) Jon Benet Ramsey was on the front page of CNN.com. ...I guess that would be homepage, not front page, per se.

Anyhoo, I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times. If her father didn't have as much money as he did, he would have quickly been found guilty of the murder we all know he committed, and we never would have even heard about them, let alone still be hearing about them, what, I dunno, years later.

I need to get a bunch of money. Then, I can get away with anything.

God bless America.

It's snowing.

Again.

Hey global warming idiots, it's SNOWING!

Every time you lecture me about global warming, I'm gonna go burn an old tire. Maybe that will keep it from snowing. Your hot air doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

Subject:"The thing's hollow — it goes on forever — and — oh my God! — it's full of stars!"
Time:11:37 pm.
Arthur C. Clarke died the other day. For all his ability to describe the future, I hope he knew what he was doing.

He was a life-long ardent atheist. For being such a scientist, he sure didn't have a very open mind about some things.

Just because you don't have the answers doesn't mean there aren't any. He should have known that.

But maybe he did. After all, he saw most of the rest of this mess before it happened.

Not my favorite, but none of the writers I do prefer would be so if not for him, so for that at least, take care.

EDIT
Link seems to come and go, but it was a study in the UK saying abortions are linked with a high incidence of mental disorders, and doctors are recommending counselling, before performing an abortion, to warn women of the risks.
*****


Nice.
My mom works at a hospital, doing ultrasounds of babies, among everything else inside a human body. She's never done a scan for an abortion, but has talked to other sounders who have, as well as doctors who have.

And none of them have ever met anyone, as far as she knows, who has not regretted having the abortion. Most of the sounders even say they regret just watching it.

When they stab the "fetus" with the needle, and pump in the poison, it thrashes around violently. Just like a living thing. Until it slows down and dies. Because it used to be a living thing.


Should Roe Vs. Wade be repealed? Who knows. If it still causes this much controversy, maybe it should be looked at. Carefully considered. If there were 10 pro-life supreme court justices, who can say they would find that RVW is lawful, and they can't get rid of it.

For all anybody knows, abortion should be legal. I personally don't feel so, but many people do.

And I really hate when people make this their issue for deciding who to vote on. They just decide what whoever is pro-choice is getting their vote.

Who can say that 10 pro-choice justices wouldn't look, and find that RVW needs to be removed? It could happen.

And of all the issues going on right now, abortion really shouldn't be on anybody's radar.

There are a lot more important things to base your choice of candidate on than a supreme court ruling that really stands no chance of changing any time soon. Unless that one old justice finally gives up and dies. Forget his name, but it's about frickin' time.


As for the article, though, I also feel you should be counselled before receiving cosmetic surgery, as most people (by that, the statistics really show it's most women) have the same level if not worse of issues regarding body image, etc.

It does nothing for self-esteem, except making it worse in many cases, is the point, and doctors should have to make sure the patient knows that.

Are you really even considered a 'patient' if you've signed up for an elective surgery? I don't think that's the right word. Shouldn't be, anyway.

As far as treating women like objects, music videos from India make all but the most misogynist of gangsta (ganster?) rappers (rappas?) look pretty tame, by comparison.

I love going to the Indian Restaurant down the street, but they have a TV going in the corner, and there's more booty shaking than you can shake a stick shaped like a booty at. I don't know what that means, but just try to imagine.

A lot, is what I'm getting at.

But they all seem to have at least 3 explosions, 7 guns, and one or more car chases/crashes.

So it's basically like watching an action movie in two minutes, over and over. With lots of dancing.

Who needs to go to the movies anymore? Just go get some tandoori chicken, and half an hour later, you'll be numb from the violence.

Subject:It's also just fun to yell "CAPTCHA!"
Time:3:19 pm.
I've always kinda liked those CAPTCHA tests, when you sign up for something online, to make sure you're a human. Sometimes they look like words, or things, instead of just random letters and numbers.



Almost like they're trying to tell you something...

Anno Mundi (Latin: "in the year of the world")
Anus Mundi (Latin: "in the ass of the world")

I guess it means Detroit.

Subject:Ninja Vs. Pirate? Need more input.
Time:8:39 pm.
My new behavioral theory, partially based on the internet, and specifically the ongoing arguement over who would win in a fight between pirates and ninjas.



Most people think these behavior sets are mutually exclusive. You are either one, or the other.

There is an adaptive theory, though, that since these archetypes are so similar, it all just depends on where in the region you happen to fall. For many people, it's perfectly possible to exist in the region of both pirate and ninja. This will mean they don't strongly resemble either archetype, but can swing towards one end or the other, on the occasions that they do become more pirate-like, or more ninja-esque.

With regards to me, being a Viking, and knowing that Vikings could kick the asses of every pirate and ninja that ever lived, while drinking enough mead to set Valhalla on fire, I've had to restructure my behavioral Venn diagram to the third illustration. The area in red is my usual hangout, as I am a Viking, so all things I do are Viking related, even if they are piraty, or ninja...ey.


Here is the behavioral area, with some markings. The red shading is my usual behavior.

Number one represents a region of absolute harmony, between ninja, pirate, and Viking.

Number two is a current behavior of strongly pirate/Viking traits, with almost no essense of ninja.

Number three is the area with very little Viking influence, that is a rough mix of ninja and pirate. As you can see, my behavior arches up away from this region, toward Viking. The closer to the center of the triangle, the higher the arch, due to the diminishing influence of the pirate and ninja archetypes.

Number four represents being very Viking, with a little ninja thrown in there.

The reason I clarify this is manifold, and not soon to be understood by many; but believe me when I say that today,

I was a fucking ninja.

And this weekend, I've some preparing to do, because coming up on Monday, it's gonna be pirate time, baby.

Subject:Why a paper election is a stupid idea, or maybe it's just Washington.
Time:8:48 pm.
Republican Races

Reporting
1st McCain 48%
2nd Romney 21%
*taken from CNN.com

Now, as you probably know, Romney dropped out of the race some time ago. But, apparently it was after the ballots for the primary were printed up and sent out.

If we were voting using updated computer lists of the candidates, this kind of thing wouldn't happen. But when they send us old, outdated information, things like this are bound to happen.

Though I can't exactly understand why so many people still voted for Romney. If they knew they liked Romney, they should have heard he dropped out a while ago.

So, perhaps stupidity is always a factor. But computers would make it better, I'm convinced.

Then again, I just refreshed CNN.com, and now it says

McCain 48% Huckabee 21%

so maybe it was a computer mistake to start with. Nevermind.

Subject:More problems with the internet
Time:11:01 pm.
Anyobe ever go to Amazon.com?
I've never bought anything, but there's lots of reasons, lack of money notwithstanding.

First off, why does every self important asshole on the internet think they are the funniest person on earth?

I'll wait for the irony to die down.

This is basically what I'm talking about

Customer reviews. And none of them, for this item, or any item I've ever found, are ever written for the sake of reviewing an item. They're just there so everyone else can go "Ooh, that person is funny". Yeah, okay, but then what? It's not like I'm going to subscribe to someone's reviews, if you can even do that, based on how unhelpful, albeit funny, they are.

Waste of time.

Also, the "Customers who viewed this item also viewed:" section.
Look at that link above, again. The Best of David Hasselhoff? Sorry, The Very Best?

I think people just look up all the obscure things they can, so that this section is also rendered useless.

Freedom, good.
Running a business, ergo capitalism, good.
Running a business over the internet, where you let any idiot review the products and make recommendations that completely befuddle the usefulness of either, not so much.

You'd think Amazon would only let people who had actually bought the things review them.

Just tossing this to the internet, you're just asking for stupidity to ensue.

Time:10:49 am.
Went to Seattle Thursday, because that is when all the museums are free. In the museums were more people using crutches or wheelchairs than I'm sure I have ever seen, even counting hospital trips.

I'm sure every 4th person at least, had some sort of disability.

It might have just been a tour group, or something, but since it was a free day, all this did was further convince me that crippled people are just a bunch of no-good freeloaders.

Which begs the question, why don't I have a wheelchair?
The hunt begins.

In political news, on the ferry ride home, some guy began to rant at me, for no apparent reason, about "The Bush Administration".

I love when people do this. Because they're really trying to say "Republicans".

I waited for a lull in the wind, then asked him if he understood that "The Bush Administration" consists of a democrat dominated house and senate.

He shut up.

"You were aware of that, right?", I asked. "That when you try putting the blame on "The Bush Administration", it's really the house and the senate that you're talking about? Mostly democrats?".

Silence.

He stayed quiet for the whole rest of the boat ride home. I read my book, trying not to chuckle too often.

Guess it's easier to just keep your head in the sand, sometimes, then face the truth you don't want to believe.

Not that what I said was really even the truth, especially. There's too many problems with our failed democracy to boil it down to party lines.

But it just made me happy that he knew so little about the system that he couldn't even respond.

Life is good, when you have idiots to entertain you.


And last night, I blew a smoke ring, which made me feel very pleased. Now the eventual lung cancer will all be worth it. Actually, mouth cancer, since it's pipe tobacco. No lung action with that stuff. But smoke ring! Yay!

Subject:More problems with the internet
Time:3:59 pm.
I read webcomics.

And have a more than passing knowledge of pop culture.

And chances are, about 90% of characters, from movies to television shows to webcomics, have been depicted in fan fiction.

Usually having sex with other characters that they would never actually have sex with. Not just because they aren't actually real.

Why do people have this pathological need to do this?

And with fan art. Most times, it's of such awful quality, I can't see how the original artist doesn't feel such revulsion that they disavow all art, and promise never to draw again, for the good of humanity. Like Dr. Frankenstein trying to destroy his creature, realizing the horror he has unleashed upon the world.

But there's a lot of porn made out of this stuff, too.

So when you're google searching for... any random character, chances are, you'll find pictures some idiot drew of that character having sex with some other character.

And the more obscure the character, chances are, the more obscure the act being portrayed.

This is a fun waste of time, and one of the entries is regarding this phenomenon, so if you feel led to check up on what I speak of, there you go.

A non-posted example is the recent Vader mail I received, including Jar-Jar Binks, a Wookie, and two Ewoks.

And Darth Vader, of course.

I just don't understand the need to do this.
Who watches their favorite television show, and sadly turns it off afterwards, since they still haven't had sex, yet, dammit, why aren't those two just gonna do it? Isn't it good enough to imagine being a doctor, or flying a spaceship? We can't be happy with that?

There's TV channels specifically geared toward people having sex. Why do some people need to have the cast of 60 Minutes joining in the depravity?

The problem with the internet is that it gives everyone a chance to get their stupid ideas out there,
and increases the chances that you accidentally run into them from time to time.

So nowadays, when you're innocently searching for just about anything,
you run the risk of seeing something that will seriously disturb you.

For instance, looking for "asian girls eating pussy" might just give you this:


Keep your nasty subcultures to yourselves, people!


And, no, to what you're thinking. It's actually from fedora.org. They just do this.

Subject:God told me to skin you alive
Time:7:28 pm.
Back when I believed in God, I never had many visits from other religion groups, trying to convert me.

But since becoming agnostic (I guess that would more accurately be 'declaring myself agnostic') I've had several visits from Jehovah's Witnesses, and Mormons.

It's like their gods told them I was a free agent, now, and they're out to sign me. More than my god ever did. Except for killing one woman who deserved to die. But that also might have been the voodoo spell I put on her, so can't be certain.

Anyway...
The JW's are easy to out-logic into leaving, but the Mormons I've just taken to hiding from. They seem to not have as many great loopholes to fall into. And by fall, I mean after me having pushed them. What can I say. It's what I do.

Speaking of logic loopholes, was in Seattle last night for a concert, and found a great way to keep the bums from asking for money. When you see them start moving towards you, ask them for money. 100% success rate, so far. They'll just stop and look lost, and as long as you keep walking, you're free.

It's the same sort of mental derailment as having someone call you on the telephone, and you pick it up and ask "Is George there?".
Stunned silence, with a touch of 'Hey, that was my line!'.

Why do some people want to take away Christmas? Seasons Greetings? Happy Holidays? Huh?

You un-american motherfuckers. Christmas is a celebration of capitalism. You call it something else, and the communists win.

Merry Christmas, comrades.

Oh, and it's snowing, too, so this is the first white christmas I remember in years.

Time:10:33 pm.
Saw I am Legend the other day. Enjoyed it, but had a few problems with it.

Had more problems with the new Batman trailer.

Just makes The Joker look like some small time criminal, doing regular stuff. I don't want some normal person the police can't seem to catch. I want the clown prince of crime. You can't hold a city for ransom with just knives and a machinegun.
Looked crazy enough, but didn't seem crazy enough.

I also got tired of seeing Batman's motorcycle. Doesn't mean I don't want it, but quit showing it, yeah?


As for crazy, and bats, (operatively in the form batshit crazy) while I was at the mall in Silverdale, the electricity went out. And naturally, everyone screamed. I'm not sure why people scream when the lights go out, but I really hate people.

It must be some kind of instincive response, but I'm not sure why.
So I think we come from bats.

After all, bats use sound to see where they're going. When the lights go out, we all just fall back on our evolutionary backgrounds and start screaming.

Except we're stupid, and can't echolocate, especially not when a mall full of other stupid people are also trying to echolocate at the same time.

It's like honking in a traffic jam. Just doesn't help.

But yet it continues.



Sometimes I wish I were deaf.
