Glenn Reynolds made a good point in his TechCentralStation article today, one that made me realize why the whole blogging thing hasn't taken off very well for me - too damn many political blogs. Better ones. Since I can't contribute much there, I need to find some sort of specialty. I'll ponder this one.
It has also come to my attention that the picture of me kissing a dude is unavailable. No clue what the hell that's about, so e-mail me if you want to see it. firstname.lastname@example.org

Mistakes were made
So I had a tree-climbing accident. I rarely climb trees, which is to say, I haven't tried it for a while. Which is probably why I can't do it well. The point is, I was showing off my injury to an acquaintance, and he told me about he accidentally got the same thing by accidentally hitting himself with an axe. I pointed out that he had an AXE-ident. *rimshot*

Dammit. What happened to blogging? I certainly don't know. As an apology, enjoy this picture of me kissing my friend Justin. I'm the skinny one.

Those poor protestors. They were so devoted to their cause, standing out in the... well, it wasn't cold, but hey, it was raining. So, standing out in the rain... protesting. It was a noble effort, but protests are, on balance, ineffective. Consider how many people protested the war in Iraq. I'm sure hardly anyone's opinion changed based on an anti-war protest. The slogans, songs, and stereotypical hippies all make for thoroughly amusing spectacle, but since when was protest ever convincing?
Protests are good for venting the anger, I'm sure. And you know, I bet protesting makes a lot of people feel like they've done something for the cause, and really filled their lives with meaning. At the same time, they look awkward, like they're trying too hard to mimick every protest they've seen before on TV, and throwing out a lot of vague, floating notions that you can't prove in the space of a sign.
At least they can sometimes incite some awesome riots.

Yet another post somehow pertaining to infanticide
You know, English class really does present some opportunities for hilarity. We had to write a narrative based on the prompt "At a Halloween party, a man in a bumblebee suit shot a man dressed as a baby." My plot to the story? Well, the bumbleebee guy hates babies, and is disgusted at the sight of the morally abhorrent baby costume, so he kills the guy. It turns out, the guy dressed as a baby runs an abortion clinic. Ahh? Ahh? I insist you all stick with me on these things.
