Senate Political Polarization by Year
This GIF animates how often US Senators vote together from 1989-2013. Methodology explained here: Senate Voting Relationships

While it is tempting to fall for the "both sides are equally guilty" False Equivalence Logical Fallacy here, remember that it was conservative Republicans that embarked on literally the worst campaign of obstruction in our nation's history starting in 2009 when the organelles really start to separate.

I don't want my tax dollars paying for any boners!  I pay for Congress, and that's already too many boners for me.
 
I'm sure this is just a temporary oversight, and that the religious right are going to come out hard against viagra. See what I did there ;)

For some of us, this isn't a big surprise.  I've driven under the influence (do NOT recommend it.) When I had a few drinks, it was a significant challenge to drive.  The car seemed like it just wouldn't drive the way it does when I was sober. I felt like I wasn't in complete control of the vehicle. Smoking pot, however, It wasn't hard to drive. But I still prefer to be a passenger when under the influence.

I've never done a product shoot before.  After hours of equipment failures and other nonsense (apparently, if you place all of your equipment in storage and don't touch it for 4 years, it'll be broken when you go back for it...) here is the result...  Tell me what you think!


P.S. This isn't the finished work. This was a really quick mockup. These images spent no time in PS.  I see the ugly eye drawing scratch on the door...  Other than that, I think these didn't turn out half bad.

And the award for biggest dipshit goes to? Every Bostonian jumping out of their windows into the snow! WTF PEOPLE?!
 
!!!!
Telling people not to jump out of their windows seems like reinforcing common sense, but in snow-ravaged Boston, stir-crazy residents don't seem to be heeding the advice. Continue reading →

So, it seems I'm supposed to be sad today because I'm single. Well, guess what?  I couldn't be more happy to be single!  After the last relationship I had? Jeez....  Much happier just living for me than having some person trying to tell me how I should and shouldn't be, what I should and shouldn't do, or want, or like, or eat... smoke... drink... say....  Relationships are bullshit!  I'll take a good friendship with someone that enjoys stringless sex, tyvm.

Oh, and fuck San Valentin!

Born a geek, a geek I remain.  I read a whole lot.  I am getting in to Arduino Development.  I'm a programmer.  I'm a musician and former member of my high school marching band (pit/accessory perc) AND stringed orchestra(violin, cello.)  I'm becoming very obsessed with tabletop gaming(nod to Mr. +Wil Wheaton.)  I drive too fast, with my music too loud.  I cook every night and it's not frozen dinners or microwave burritos.  Anything else you might want to know you can feel free to ask.
