I didn't know whether to laugh that I haven't had to deal with that for the last 1.5 years, or cry for those in the trenches.

Finished "Out of the Dark" by David Weber. Picked it up at the bookstore the other day. Interesting teasers, cool cover, etc. Started out well. Decently entertaining pulpy sci-fi Marines vs Aliens read for about 400 pages. Then went straight into the crapper for the last 40 pages. It's the definition of deus ex machina. Beyond disappointing. I will NEVER buy another of his books. I might toss this one into the recycle bin rather than subject anyone else to such a stupid ending.

I don't get it. When the Tea Party protests began, they either got zero coverage at all or were dismissed by mainstream media, and the blogosphere, as a bunch of right wing nut jobs. Their message, the original message of the Tea Party before it was co-opted by the extreme right of the Republican party, was that government was doing a crappy job and we needed change. They got called out by left leaning op-ed writers as a bunch of idiotic cranks who had no idea how the world actually works.

Along comes OWS and all of a sudden they're the darlings of the media. They're in touch with the true problems that plague America and we should all throw our full support behind them. They're us, they're the 99%, they represent all that's good and our financial-military-industrial-government complex is all that's wrong with our lives.

I call bullshit. You can sugar coat this all you want. You can take heart wrenching pictures of the woman in the crowd with the little baby that looks so helpless. You can point to the truly tragic and tug on our emotions. But that doesn't make it real. When one person suffers in front of us, it's a tragedy. That doesn't make it a statistic.

I defy the media, and the blogosphere, to report both sides of this. Ask the man in the crowd with his North Face jacket, his iPhone 4, and his Starbucks coffee how bad he has it. Ask the woman with her Coach bag and Steve Madden shoes why she's there. Ask the college kids, living off of their parents money, who's taking notes for them in class on Monday while they pretend to be worldly wise.

Better yet, find the people who are working hard instead of screaming hard and tell their stories. Tell us about the immigrants making better lives for their kids. Or the mom working two jobs to support hers. Or the dedicated researcher, toiling in a lab curing cancer or AIDS or some other horrible disease. Let's talk about the people that are doing something to make the world a better place instead of those people that are just whining about it.

The random people adding me to circles is ten times more extreme than the random people who follow me on Twitter. Trust me people, I have nothing useful to say.

I get bored of social network games pretty quickly but I have to hand it to Zombie Lane. I'm not sure I'll ever get tired of walking up behind a zombie and whacking it as hard as I can with a shovel.

I want to be able to control how my stream is displayed. I'd use Slashdot as a model.

Can we consider that a cost cutting measure? $1 down, $499,999,999 to go.

I was flipping through channels and stumbled on some idiotic reality show about polygamists. Not that I really care bout people's chosen lifestyle but it does make me curious about something. Assuming Mormons have the same proportion of male to female babies as the rest of us, what happens with all of the extra guys? I mean if one guy has five wives, are there four guys with none? Do they all just hang out together in bachelor clubs? Or do they all move to Vegas to be blackjack dealers? I'm thinking that they feed most of the male babies to the coyotes so they'll be enough of everyone to go around.

So they either end up in Never Never Land or as extras in vampire movies.

I don't know how anyone can take the Iowa results seriously. The so-called voters were bought and paid for. There were only about 17,000 votes even cast. This was all about who had the best BBQ, not who had the best ideas. We're down a candidate already before anyone even knows who's who.

The Republicans seem intent on picking a candidate who has the least chance to attract any moderate voters.
