“Grassroots”

November 29, 2008

Another term falling victim to language manipulation in the interest of political gain. Examine the metaphor. Many roots of blades of grass growing together upward, becoming a lawn (more…)

My Point Exactly.

Please see my last post also. . .

A mob of people desperate to get into WalMart trample a worker to death as he waits to unlocks the door at 5am. Other employees try to rescue him, the mob continues pouring into the store. Even as police try to do CPR, the crowd doesn’t relent (more…)

Why you shouldn’t worry about the economy.

November 27, 2008


Its all a sham my friends, we’re not all going to be out of work living in our cars. North Americans have one quality that guarantees our economic survival- we are the perfect consumers. (more…)

Greatest Depression Ever!

November 25, 2008


Worst part of the news is the sympathy crap and the disturbing shit- pet care and traffic accidents. Celebrity news of course being comprised of both crap and shit. When it comes to the real stories, the poorer and more foreign you are, the less tragic is your hardship. . . Unless of course something really freaky happened. (more…)

Put them to work

November 23, 2008

Is it any more likely a convict would spit in my burger than a greasy faced teen?

Up until recently, I’ve always supported the idea of putting people in prison to work. It make economic sense, they’re costing us money so let them work off some of the tab. Same goes for welfare recipients, we allot public funds to assist them and better society, so why not get them to clean up the highways as well, right? (more…)

Many people’s jobs and investments hang in the balance. Maybe this stems from (more…)

Owning Life

Forget taking over the world with armies, or economics, or culture- the world could be conquered with the birth of a single baby. A new messiah of human design. (more…)

Information Storage

We can all have a good chuckle about ‘computers‘ back during their conception. Mammoth machines filling an entire room just to accomplish a few simple computations.

TV

November 5, 2008


I don’t watch it much, actively, but its often on in the background while im computerizing- which is frequently. The one format i will sit and actually watch is the prime time animated show. i can’t help it; Simpsons got me addicted when i was still young and impressionable. So here it is, absolutely defined, unchallengeable: a listing of the big animated shows from best to worst. (more…)
