"'Chaos has killed me, son,' you said, 'But the victory of unpredictability is hollow. Men imagine, in their pride, that they can predict life's each event, and govern nature and govern each other with rules of unyielding iron. Not so. There will always be men like you, my son, who will do the things no one else predicts or can control. I tried to tame the sun and failed; no one knows what is at its fiery heart; but you will tame a thousand suns, and spread mankind so wide in space that no one single chance, no flux of chaos, no unexpected misfortune, will ever have power enough to harm us all. For men to be civilized, they must be unlike each other, so that when chaos comes to claim them, no two will use what strategy the other does, and thus, even in the middle of blind chaos, some men, by sheer blind chance, if nothing else, will conquer.

"'The way to conquer the chaos which underlies all the illusionary stable things in life, is to be so free, and tolerant, and so much in love with liberty, that chaos itself becomes our ally; we shall become what no one can foresee; and courage and inventiveness will be the names we call our fearless unpredictability....'"

-Helion Prime (The Golden Transcendence; from The Golden Age trilogy by John C. Wright)

What you quote has a lot of truth in it. But man has had two chances to rid chaos. Many religions based on there being an all powerful being which gave us rules to live peacefully. We messed up the first set, so He sent down another to try to humanize his rules. Whoops we messed that up too. Philip , freedom, liberty, and love, fidelity, we have the means, let's work on the implementation of them. Mary

Oh my God! I can't believe it! Fantastic!
In a breaking, staggering bit of good news, President Obama has commuted the prison sentence of former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, who has been imprisoned for seven years for leaking military documents in 2010. Obama drastically reduced Manning’s 35-year sentence. She will now be freed on May 17.

Now if we could just pardon Snowden and Assange, I'd be a happy dude.

The credit for this goes to anybody who ever attended a city council meeting, donated to an animal rights group, stole a pile of ticket coupons and threw them in the trash, protested, educated their friends, signed a petition, or simply refused to attend the show. This was not a short term effort, nor was it the result of one action. This was a long game played tirelessly and at great expense. This is a victory for the animals and for humanity itself. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

"While the treatment of the elephants was widely protested, they were a major attraction for the performance, and their removal contributed to a decline in ticket sales greater than could have been anticipated."
A year after it announced that it would no longer use elephants in its performances, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will hold its final performances in May of this year. The Cirus’s...

We did it! This year is off to a great start.
After 146 years, the curtain is coming down on "The Greatest Show on Earth." The owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus told The Associated Press that the show will close forever in May.

+Zen Studios Pinball table suggestion. Great theme music, tons of usable quotes (consider "think we better start over, don't you?"). Multitudes of target options, mini-games, skill-shots, etc. I dare to say the pinball table would be better than the movie.

Now I know what I want to be when I grow up.
Hidden cameras, undercover aliases and private investigators are tactics usually deployed to bust a drug-dealing ring or catch an escaped convict. In the case of the Guardians of Rescue, they’re us…

Disclosure: I never bothered watching episodes II or III. I'm just taking her snarky word for everything. 😁
Why didn’t they just go to a goddamned obstetrician-gynecologist?

Honestly, and I'm no radical modern feminist, she has a point.

It's noisy and expensive, but if you want fantastic vegan pizza and quality drinks to wash it down, there is no better place to go with just a date or with your entire crew.

Skip's is the glue that has held the Sacramento music scene together for decades. They have a smaller inventory than Guitar Center, but if you're looking for lessons, rentals, music programs, or knowledgeable staff, this is still the place to go.

My friends and I have spent thousands of dollars here over the past few years. Today, after we ordered our meals, the waitress ambushed us saying we underpaid by $8 during our last visit. In disbelief, we denied the accusation. So the waitress produced the receipt they have been waiting to confront us with for two weeks, with a note on it that we owed money. After waiting several minutes for a manager or somebody else to come speak with us, we got up and walked away, leaving our untouched meal behind. We bought lunch next door instead. We hope you find your $8, because you'll never see another penny from us. I have no interest in returning to an establishment that holds petty grudges against its patrons.
