Not surprising - Would be surprising if Americans had a backbone.

London Riots as a result of hiking tuition rates to half what they are in America, and various other public sector cuts.

Media controls a great many aspects of everything in our social culture. It controls the population of nations en-masse. These are not facts that can be argued against.

Hence, I do not listen to them.

They will always try to shift things in a direction that benefit their corporate sponsors. Public television is the only real network that hasn't been completely sold out to special interest groups.

I used my airplane time to listen to music and read mainly...also to look at the scenery when I could. I liked the way things looked above the clouds...like being in heaven.

I'd marry a grand piano.

Because I'd love to have a piano in my house at all times. Not really cool that they are incredibly expensive and owning one means living in one place for an extended period of time.

Yeah.

"Potential friends"?

Didn't know there was a fucking screening process. Christ, NO WONDER THIS WORLD IS SO FUCKED UP.

Yeah, honesty and integrity are nice, but people are the way they are for reasons many times outside of their control. Deal with it.

I actively advocate against state supported terrorism (ala US Foreign Policy.)

I actively advocate for the legalization of marijuana and certain other hallucinogens.

I actively advocate for the establishing of Moral Anarchy (ala Bakunin) and Communism/Socialism (ala Marx/Lenin/Trotsky)

Yeah, I worked at a lumber mill in northwest Pennsylvania. The buildings were not heated - during the winter time, while piling, it was essentially whatever the ambient temperature was outside. I was laid off four times, and the last time I was brought back, I was put in a position where my life and limb were in danger daily, as well as my long-term health as a result of other aspects of the job. Numerous OSHA violations that went without fines and unchanged made me finally walk out one night at midnight. I shook the hand of one of the maintenance guys I worked with, and told him to have a nice life.

No one had had a raise in over four years. I'm glad I got out before I had worked for a full year.

It has to be two, sorry.

Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
TooL - Lateralus

The first for when I'm depressed, the second for when I'm happy.

Writing books, pursuing music and teaching (I'm already doing two of these, just not earning any money ;))

You heard me right.

I started writing a book yesterday. I plan to have it finished sometime in 2010. The cover art is complete, as is the methodology for the rest of the sparse art throughout the book.

It is going to begin with Book I, essentially an examination of my world view, and how I came to the perspectives I have - as well as suggestions for others to attain a more moral, upright, righteous worldview themselves. I'm lighting the candle Noam Chomsky started a long time ago, and hoping that through the electronic age and culture I can reach out to a great deal of people. I think it is inevitable that I will, because my perspective is, indeed, quite radical. I won't be discussing my personal life...rather discussing the methods I have used to attain my perspective. It will be spiritual, but not. I wish to avoid the issue of god entirely and stick with what can help people obtain results in their clarity of perception and thought. God complicates matters, and the idea of him/her/it/they has been abused far too often throughout history.

The rest of the book - well, maybe you'll find out. Sometime in twenty-ten.

This will probably reinforce the idea of getting website. I'll need to figure out a way to sell electronic copies, although with my current mode of living I think I could manage sending people copies by email personally (although I would prefer to automate it somehow.) I don't have enough coding background to even begin with something like that...but I'd like to run it through paypal and have varying levels of donation per copy ($5-$10-$15-$20-$25) This will let people pay what they feel I deserve, and they can always come back and donate again if they so desire. But I don't want people to /have/ to pay more than $5 for the book. Most authors probably get less than that after the publisher's cut, anyhow.

I think, before, I really thought it was pointless to do anything like this. I felt overwhelmed - how can I compete with the advertising industry? But I don't have too. If I make something riveting enough, people will do the work for me. And that's the best and only real way to go about it. That's how a vast majority of the classic great thinkers did it. It was a slow expansion.

[Error: unknown template qotd]You can't explain to me why the forces exist in exactly the way that they do, and you never will be able to do so. You can explain to me the how of their functioning, but you can not explain to me the why. Gravity warps space time, and so do high velocities. You can't tell me why. You can only tell me that they do such things, and the mathematical equations used to derive their exact natures.

The question of why is left to the spiritualists, theologians, and philosophers. It is the only thing we have left to deal with, now that science has taken over everything else. Atheists, you can't answer the why either. So shut up :)

[Error: unknown template qotd]Two nights ago when I was walking down sorter bays in the lumber mill I work at. These bays are suspended thirty-plus feet in the air, and can hold upwards of two tons of lumber each. One bay had failed overnight, leaving it resting on the chains below. As they started up in the morning, no one came down to check...a board was dropped into the bay that had failed, causing it to fall that thirty-plus feet, land on the chains, and come flying out.

I had just walked past it, bay 17 as it were. I heard a smash, glanced over, and saw the board land one foot away from me, twisting after having hit the wall nearby.

It may have also been flung out from up above the catwalk, in which case, it would have been a twelve foot board falling thirty-plus feet and landing only a foot from my being.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'd like to believe in such things, but I can't say I necessarily do.

I have thought at times what I had was true love and it must not have been - because it did not last. True love may exist...I just don't know if it does yet.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Depends on the individual in question.

You know - there's times I feel like a kid (at 21) and there are times I feel like an old man. I'm not really sure there's a pure definition for it in my case, but I have known my share of immature people (my age, older, younger) and mature people (possibly less than the immature, but that may just be a result of my current location!)

However, I tend to see open mindedness as a big sign of maturity, as well as understanding, consideration for others, and kindness.

The very definition of maturity itself likely varies from person to person, so I think this is one of the tougher questions one could be asked.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Hannah Montana sucks. By the gods, WHY THE HELL IS SHE CONSIDERED LEGENDARY? SHE DOESN'T EVEN WRITE HER OWN MUSIC ARRANGEMENTS OR LYRICS.

That being said, Nine Inch Nails in Ohio, the With_Teeth tour. About two years ago. Mind blowing experience.

Trent never lost his roots and at least then hadn't given in to the corporations. Head Like A Hole was just as emotion-filled as it ever was on CD, and it was far better Live.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Neither. While I am inclined to agree with certain others in that Chuck Norris would win, I think it is likely to say they would kill each other...and then maybe Chuck Norris would eat the corpses.
