All very true too.  :o  The Starbucks dude should have said Jesus instead of Merry Christmas though.  :)


I don't know what to think anymore. The other day I said to somebody who had a cold, that I just got over that cold..it sucks eh? They said...it isn't a cold...it's the government spraying chemical contrails. What do you say to that? Even if it's true, why are you telling me? I'm just making empathetic conversation. Jeesh.  :-X

Oh..and Nickelback DOES suck.  ;D

The bit I liked most was the child's guide to online political discussion "Everyone I don't like is Hitler".

i really hope that part of the issue is that we are really quite new to online discussion and it just hasn't matured yet.

Good article.

That cloud thing?  I know a perfectly sane guy who believes in that.  Its crazy.  Hes obsessed with it.  It makes me question everything about him now.

It seems like one constant is that poor black neighborhoods get treated as they have almost forever.  Starbucks and campus safe zones dont mean much.

Orlando?  Once again America will go through its ritual and shock while doing nothing to change anything and then act surprised when it happens again.

The quote isn't much better. Who knew Paul Simon was Italian?  :o
