Remember the movie, The Birds, where they go bat shit crazy and start attacking people in a small town. The people of Gilbert, Mn, a small, quaint rural community up near the Canadian border are living the story that the rest of us believed to be nothing but bad fiction. Seems that their favorite food, berries, have fermented early, way before most of the bird population migrates south, making for flocks of drunk birds. Kinda like what shows up on my bird feed on twitter. Funny though, how life imitates art at times.
WTF is reality anyway? For most of us, it's our small individual corner of the universe, a world influenced by external sources such as media. Other than that, we don't think much about the bigger picture. Back in the day when I was a young one, we didn't have any media out on the prairie, 'cept maybe an old yellowed newspaper that arrived weeks late, and was more useful for wiping our ass. So our universe was small, real small. I've seen it grow quite a bit, and that's a good thing. People are more connected with each other, but there's some people in the world starting to ask, what else are we connected to, and why? Who are we, who am I, are eternal questions, and the more I read about it, the more I'm tending to believe that reality might be manufactured, and that's bothersome. So much so, I've started looking for the source code, and when I find it, shit's going to change.
Imagine being a famous porn star and walking into a frat house. That takes balls, balls most men don't have. Given current events with Kavanaughs early college behavior, the #metoo movement, and the social impression that most of us have regarding frat houses, Tasha Reigns has some grandes bolas. She's also smart. I don't think a woman, not involved in the porn Industry, could walk into any frat house in America to talk about sex and respect, and be listened to. I'm guessing they listened, I would have, hell, I still am. I've always believed if you want shit to change, you go to the source, and for some reason that's thinking outside the box, and it shouldn't be.
Who Would Do Such a Thing?
I don't care how good the economy is doing, how great our foreign policy is, don't care that we destroyed ISIS. A lot of people out there are capable of doing those things, and not shatter our Nation to smithereens in the process. That's what Trump is doing. My problem isn't with his policies, it's with his character. Simple!
I'm not willing to see our Country split, divided and shit on for an extra buck or two an hour.
To stand there and accuse Democrats of destroying Brett Kavanaugh, and then turn around and shamefully destroy Christine Ballsy Ford, after calling her a credible witness is beyond shameful.
Imagine, riding a elevator to a luxurious hotel in space. Apparently the physics are doable and China's looking to get it done by 2045. While the cost is enormous, 10 billion, which really means fifty times that, it'd reduce the cost of putting something in space from 3500 a pound to 25 greenbacks a pound, which means it'd only cost me about 4,300 to hitch a ride. Yeah, I'd do it! Then again, I've been stuck in an elevator before, and what happens if the cables snap? As long as they issue parachutes, I guess I'd risk it.

Before peace on earth, there was hell.
Strange, this work is over 25 years old, and looking back on it, I get why it never sold. But damn, I'm proud of it. Check out a sample, here.
With all the pieces laying around,
why is life so redundant?
God speaks to all, many hear, one acts.
There exists in every person the potential to do great harm and most people find that potential because it’s easier to find and execute than to find the potential to do good.
Keep the people fed with bread and they’ll catch you stealing them blind. Put a steak on their table, and they won’t care.
Social Commentary is an act of subterfuge that will destroy our civilization, but it just also happens to be a good thing.
The Human mind is a great and amazing thing, if it's even a thing. I'm suspecting these days, it is more than just a thing we think with. Like any tool, the more you use it, the better you get at using it, and you often come up with different ways to use it. A hammer is a good example. Thing is, up to now, the brain has been pretty much internalized, meaning you can't reach out to things and others by using the brain without your extremities, until just yesterday. Now it happens, that our military has learned to control drones using the mind alone, and I thought that was just cool and wonderful till I read they needed to plant a chip in the brain. Like if you can control a drone with a chip in your brain, ever think someone might be able to dictate your behavior via the chip. And then there are those fucking hackers!
I don't play the lottery, cuz my luck sucks! Although, I have been lucky twice, back in the day. Once, I lobbed a random, half hearted softball into a milk jug at a county fair and walked away with a big ass bear. I gave it to gal who I was with, and she fell in love with me and stole my heart. Thirty years later the bear is gone, just like all the blankets when I lay my head down to pillow. The second time, I was setting in a bar, and down to my last dollar, and I still wanted to drink. I spent the buck on a scratch off, and won 75 big ones, and ended up with a hellacious hangover. So yeah, that's why I don't play the lottery, I've used my luck up. I ain't Irish.
Seriously, there are those groups of individuals that have orgies while dressed in bunny costumes? Horse suits? I'm betting that people pick out their costumes based on their self perceived perceptions? Now, about that horse suit. Or maybe they just want to stay anonymous, but hell, when it comes to couples, one of 'em always talks. I don't know, I like sex while I'm bare ass'd naked, prefer the wife that way too, but doesn't always work out that way. Just seems like a waste of time and money to dress up for sex, but to each their own. Btw, I also like to know who I'm having sex with, and Jessica Rabbit would be a game changer,
I love technology. Love how we've evolved in some respects, others not so much. Can't help but wonder what tomorrows world wide web is going to look like, I don't have any doubts it's going to get highly individualistic, extremely personal. So what about privacy? All that personal, intellectually, and emotional data? Well, if this dude gets his way, you won't have a problem. You know as well as I do, that profit motivates our netscape, and the profit that generates generously? Your data. Privacy is a double edged sword, there are those hiding behind their anonymity, who should wither in the sprout of sunshine. I don't know where it's going to end up, it'll be interesting, but it'll never be the best it was, back in the wild days.
I'm going to sing and dance to the fading purple haze while listening to the Star Spangled Banner.
Have good one.
