Nothing exciting here: (sorry)

– Haven’t been up to much…watching utube vids on the dangers of CERN opening a portal for the devil. Seems legit; with that uberscientist talking about becoming a God, and those dancers dancing like that! What a weird video with that mist & flying people – in a science video!?
– Listened to some Country Music today; had a couple thoughts stem here and there:
A: I know this is shocking, but ever wonder why these Rap, Rock, & Country songs always refer to the females they’re interested in as a “girl,” “little girl”, or even “baby girl;” Garth Brooks’ had a song, (“Calling Baton Rouge”), about a “woman-child” (or some curious combination thereof). This, if I recall correctly, is differently in Metal songs!
B: In some religions, they say they should ‘work their way into heaven.’ I think that maybe it’s good to work hard for your God, but not to get into heaven, but as a thanks that such is possible; maybe even guaranteed. As I think I put it in shorthand in my notes: “not ‘in-order-to,’ but ‘because’.”

– Commercial-makers (mind-control experts) are getting better at their wares: Lady doffed her top today & all I could think was: “Oooh boobs – gotta be some ‘Calvin Kline jeans’ around here somewhere!”
– !?VSTOL?! http://imgur.com/gallery/yHTaSRS
– “Eeeediots!!” http://imgur.com/gallery/0C4L4kx bunny-hop a forklift?!
– lol – Australian tea party http://imgur.com/gallery/m1poihi
– I had a thought the other day; that when something happens to/for/bc of us and we might think that’s a lucky thing or a temporary thing… but if it’d been someone else, we might’ve attributed it as something much more positive for/about/bc of them. So there’s something new to add to my list of filters to think-through and make sure my thoughts are balanced and I’m not cutting anyone short – including me.

Yep, I heard an interesting talk on Coast To Coast AM soon after the downing of the flight. The speaker bringing-up the sinking of the Lusitania in edging-on one of the big wars, I think. And questioning why-in-the-world a passenger jet was flying over a war zone (when the pilot requested against it). And you might think the soldiers might know the skies well-enough to tell the difference between a passenger jet and a military plane.

“These differences are not the problem.”
It’s not what is given to us, (our natural abilities & limitations), but what one does with them & how we improve ourselves & help others.
“…instead of celebrating our differences, we [are] overcome” !!
“…claim that differences don’t exist, that we are all equal, and scorn anyone who says otherwise…”
We somehow feel our own lack of strength & power, then fear any threat to that playing-out. We base our safety on equality & rights, thinking that an even-playing-field should do it for us. I too think that “we are all one, equal – at our most fundamental core.” Worthy of respect, and not wonton cruelties. I think it is good to try to explore our motives find our inherent self-favoritisms – and look-again to see how others may share important likenesses or differences.
That’s all – I have many tabs to get through!!

Hi Cassandra. “Who?” I think it would be “as many people as possible.” (eventually) But for-now, probably just the upper-middle-class & military/police & possibly religious uppers as well.
“Why?” I’m thinking is just to get more control; more ease at the helm.
I think it could seem “channeled”, look up “Voice-to-skull” technology. With all we know about electromagnetics, ULF & UHF frequency effects, etc. etc. I see little reason to think this is not entirely possible, though obviously hidden – no one wants to let everyone know that they are completely defenseless.

You said she was a good writer; how about you come up with a general idea for a story and you share this idea with her, you both write different versions – sharing some of the same plot-points & such.
I’ve always wanted to see what different writers/singers could do with the same starting-point.
Or have two narrators within the story, wrtitten from different viewpoints; whether they know of each other is up to you I guess.

RE: Wow – “It was nothing.” Nothing and defensiveness! That’s low – much lower than I’d thought our society to be!
I think I’d differ on boys “conditioned to believe he is because he is.” I think boys are taught to work and buy; these “jobs”… “astronauts, doctors and vets,” are just one-dimensional aspects of that. They’re not encouraged to vote, or really think, or lead anything other than a corporation, or a line-of-tanks into a small foreign village. It’s a pigeon-hole as well; though, yes, maybe a little more room inside – to lead a small family or-so.

“At first my female classmates sunbathed in the American style. 45 minutes later they said to hell with it, took their tops off, and left the guys feeling slightly awkward and titillated for about 5 minutes, when everyone’s notion of normal re-calibrated. That’s how fast the mental adjustment happens.” ~Conor Friedersdorf
I’m also reminded of these great campaign posters https://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/breastfeeding-campaign-posters-stir-online-controversy-190307806.html Sad.
“The world’s most hyper-sexual media…” that brings up a good point: maybe I should look into watching the “topless weather channel,” [noting those who fund it], or something natural; seems to me that the only time I’ve ever seen boobs was in intentionally-sexualized schemas; usually something being sold. So maybe a little proactive psychological recalibration would do some good!

“Slow news day” (except for the unreported wars, killings, & lootings)

No; I mean it’s a slow-news-day in my life. I went to work: ‘bam.’ There you have it.

I’m trying a widget so you can see my “likes.” A list of them pops-up at the bottom of individually-viewed pages, (not on my main page where there is a long, never-ending viewing of my pages). I’m also trying to get my “About” page as my starting page (for the long display of pages), but when I tried that, then all you could see was the About page, and nothing else. So I’ll try something else.
On my About page I’ll put a link to my other significant & helpful pages here, like a list of my comments on other pages, (like I said, “significant & helpful”).

Thought of something funny the other day: “My girlfriend broke-up with me, and drove-off as far as she could – with my car. (I’d seen it all coming and filled-up the gas-tank yesterday!)”

Okay I’ll say it: “Happy Mother’s Day.” (there I said it.) (You can’t make me smile though!) 🙂 (dang-it.)

Heard a song on the radio tonight from way-back-when…(5th grade?); then I wondered if it was 7th grade … then I wondered why it “felt” like there was a 10-year difference there (in radio-years – I’m usually dead-on when remembering the years that a song was on)! (Must’ve been some crazy times!)

Can visitors to my blog see my comments on other pages?
I hope some readers come to my site to hear what I personally have to say. Sometimes I say things on other peoples’ pages. What’s the best way to let them read my replies, (and know what I have “liked”)?
Should I write it out on my page or link to it on my page? Or is there like an automatic way – a special page like a stats page for visitors?
I don’t know; so here are some of my replies & “likes” (It’sa start)
Sometimes comments are not “allowed” to be posted. I don’t know why or why not. Could be 1,000 reasons; maybe it doesn’t matter. But I wrote them; believe I meant well with them. You may like to know your author’s thoughts & opinions. (Sometimes replies are marked as “epigene2”??)

“…perceived and marketed constantly…” I think a missed reply opportunity I had the other day will suffice right here: maybe give guys the chance to objectify you, …a quote I cannot find right now… something about, “allowing others the right to think-as-they-will about you.” And if they fail in that cosmic duty to find a balanced, wholistic, & strong way to relate to you, then that will be their-loss.

RE: “Freedom & responsibility.” – (Still looking to break this false-dichotomy)
A person will become “responsible” when they simply see that they are cared-about – that you care about them; not as a cog in a caste or high-government-position or sex or creed; or what kewl new cell-phone you got. Only when they see value in themselves will they know that they can risk that value in a venture for change – knowing they will not be forgotten.
“Freedom as a synonym of growth,” (just a new avenue of thought; no new opinions yet) [“freedom – what to do when you get there?”].
I’ve too many questions about the nature of conscious thought to put that on one’s responsibilities of thought/action – especially when billions or trillions of dollars are actively used in the field of neuroadvertising.

RE: Strauss and Nietzsche were secretly theists?
Why do we always want what we ain’t got? Choose one over another, and we lament. We trade one “established article” to create another. Do we only philosophize and freeze our living thoughts into stagnant words in hope that others may cling to them and hope they do our worldly work? Instead, we fail to bring our soul thus into the world; we let others counterfeit it.

We are changing ourselves, yes. But if we measure in only one or two directions, surely we fail to respond to the myriad ways nature will press & strain us, (see our devolution of the English Bulldog from robust sporty creation to a creature with a severe underbite, bobbling gait, & breathing problems).
“Evil is the flip side…” I’m more interested in the edge [edit: “edge of the coin”]; forget the false dichotomy.

What if there really were 983,479,834,759,780,451,918,327,409,713 different dimensions of time-space or space-time? What would -it- I mean? Would it really matter if all my hard-fought opinions & lessons were simply one of a serial reiteration of reckoning? Does it mean something that “mean” can be a numerical “middle”?
Does it all come down to which dreams, (balloons) do I dare to breathe into existance?
(P.S. http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2008/07/reconciling-evi.html is 404.?)

RE: So often I fear or even flee adversity. I wonder, even instead of fighting & overcoming it, what would it be like to blend with & dance with it.

(Well this is just a start. Maybe I’ll put these on a separate page.)

Thanks, Thanks, and more; Thanks.

– Thanks for: thought-up a (another) grrreat marriage-proposal. (Not that I really really needed another grreat idea; God!)(What I really need is a g.f. or [how-many is possible]! amiright?)
– Thanks for: a nice free sauna! (hot -n- humid today!) (might-as-well see it as a free sauna; amiright?)
– Thanks for: two good-bad (ingeniously-devious) ideas that I’d held quietly for several years, that someone else finally put out there.
– Thanks for: can’t keep those dandelions down! 🙂
– Thanks for: had that “wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle” song in my head (that’s pretty-much the only part I know): thought-up a good party idea

– 1998 “Bill Phillips” “Who’s the perfect bodybuilder?” contest http://www.bodybuilding.com/teen/aj9.htm There’s a VHS video of this out there somewhere. I think it’s worth watching. Started out as a bodybuilding contest with a Lamborghini as grand-prize. (So many people entered & did so well that the Lambo was sold to buy several winners also-nice-cars) One of the few things I do remember is that some of the poorest-performing competitors were the ones boasting the most about their results. It may’ve been mentioned that this compares to the toughest-talking hikers usually complaining the most when all the hikers have the same load.
– Decent day at work; not terribly-exciting work… but I think my hurting body part is beginning to strengthen & heal. (Either-that or my fingers are hurting from all the very-hard-pressing that is done!!)

– Does Everything Living Have A Long Slender Gooey Twisty Parasite Living Inside Of Them?!?! (NSFH) (Or: MRW seeing the thousand clawlike feet of a centipede falling – now inches in the air above me – twisting-mid-air, each nulti-jointed leg turning in dozens of different directions at-once; goosebumps all-too ready fanning-out with static-electric fervor to intercept and cradle its bristling grip clenching with zipperlike quickness. An immediate frantic race – it barrels in blind fright through the forest of wire-taut feeling, screaming human hairs – into the only opening in my clothing, then down, down, across & down…. Oh it missed! I get to live another day now.)
.
– Science! – I’ve recently been wondering about the Gaia hypothesis – that the Earth is literally alive. Some of the things I’ve been adding-up are the vast networks of water tubes (down-to the nano-scale) throughout Earth – water being very good at moving electric signals, kinda like a brain. The ever-present & vast forms of life within that water. The intricate web(s) of life – with some lifeforms living among, on, or even within others; some with symbiotic relationships.

– I’m Thankful for: seeing the full moon popping up behind the trees.
– Thankful for: the fire being basically three beautiful blue-hued parts.
– Thanks for: a nice Bluegrass song. (Have I mentioned my recent thoughts on “Country Music”? Note to “Country” musicians: If your band doesn’t have a banjo or steel guitar, but does have a set of drums & electric guitar(s), has an “80’s Rock-N-Roll” feel to it… well I don’t care how-far out in the sticks you live, how-many “cowboy hats” you got hangin in yer closet, how-many “country” stations play yer tunes: you playin nothing more than [1980’s era] Rock-N-Roll. You been Rick-Roll’d.) (And “Rap”: well that’s just Electronica, bordering on Industrial, with TONS of mind-kontrol repetativity [hey look it up!].) [edit: Note that I think that “Rap” music has a lot of wonderfully-creative musical bits – but those bits are far-too-short &, like I said, mind-stuntingly-repetative. (and they use the “B,” “N,” & “F”-words ad-nauseum! {Christ, people – get a life!})]

– Thanks for: fresh violets, dandelions, & garlic mustard.

– Thanks: boss said he wants “1,000 parts” (a Herculean-task); an hour-later I find myself being directed to the cardboard bailer – not-conducive to a thousand-part shift! (Oh well; just sayin’. Unforseen events do happen. I work hard at the job regardless. I got people’s family medical cares to fund, right?)

– “People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society.” ~Jason Read [HA! I was having very similar thoughts recently as well. I keep hearing about these new psychology experiments that end up saying that people just basically scratch their own backs, & whatever they do, they do it for their own genetic ego; I just wonder then if that’s true, then there’s no real reason to follow the leaders as they’re not really in it to be public servants either.]
– Not a great day for me: woke up early, did buy a couple nice things, barely got to work on time, boss had me do something in another, (related), department with “lots” of paperwork & “several” dozen different meaningless numbers which apparently do not cross-reference into any book. Got confused when the two or three different orders I was working on had one very very similar part & one exact-same part; or maybe I was making two different orders at the same time & didn’t realize this; or maybe it was some of the other paperwork that was pre-finished so I got the numbers mixed-up prematurely. Anyway, I spent a lot of time trying to figure things out, a little time backtracking & undoing. I feel like I contributed nothing today. To be honest, numerology is not my strong suit; I only have about five/six-full-minutes of training in some of the specifics of this paperwork – (and most of that was months-ago). I only made a couple of small mistakes; one of which was not-knowing where parts can get stuck while measuring/cutting – even if you’re very careful. (A lot of my time was eaten-up when machine A started cutting parts all willy-nilly…. 5mm too-large or small & such… this happens after moving the sensor a mere millimeter! It is not hard to move it “a single millimeter” for God’s sake – then each and every time after that, it starts cutting 5 millimeters off!??! I finally figured out a great guess as why it would do that, but to no avail.)
– Was thinking about Star Trek: The Movie (1985?) Anyway: 2 things: A: The sounds really made the movie; whoever did the sounds for all that stuff deserve a big award! And B: I’m glad they had a Star Trek where James Tabitha Kirk isn’t the end-all be-all hero.
– Changed tagline from “What’s so civil about obedience, anyway?” to: “Not all protesters are rioters.” (And not all rioters protest.) (Could be a temporary change.)
