This weekend's soundtrack is, well a soundtrack--from the original Ghost in the shell anime movie----wonderful---although you have to enjoy traditional Japanese drumming--and a sort of chant/drone throat singing style---not for everyone i suppose--ya think? but I really enjoy having it on in the background while computing---don't bother--i know i'm not right--i also ordered a portable cd player from amazon..i simply cannot get the hang of working an mp3 player--no matter how much i try---i just cannot make the damn thing work properly and i need music on the segway so i decided i had better get one while i still can--before they go the route of the walkman. I hate it that i cannot modernize in this particular area--plus i have a zillon cd's so i guess i should use them.
"who are you? who slips into my robot body and whispers to my ghost?"

This is very cool...a Swiss airline pilot wearing a winged jetpack has completed a crossing of the English Channel---Commando Cody has got to be spinning in his grave...when i was a kid in the 1950's jetpacks were the supposed item of the future---we'd all have one and commute to work with them...go on dates wearing them----uh--right? I guess science has finally solved and conquered the age old question of "how do i keep from burning the cheeks of my ass off with this thing?" which had delayed jetpack development for all these years! Gooooo----science!

The weirdness is upon us. Once again Bush is using an emergency circumstance produced and created by his administration to change American society.

Standard procedure for his crew of minor imps and demons--cover my actions or lack thereof by declaring an emergency... This time will it be called the War on Wall Street? Will they be declaring Mission Accomplished in a few days? The Bush incompetence has created and supported a war on the average American by the upper class....for the last 8 years---this has displayed to me the depth of stupidity and cow like nature of the populace within our i guess i can chalk it up as a personal learning experience. Below is a simple explanation as to what, why and how the current economic situation developed...if you are interested....
and next is a link to an interesting piece in the Herald Tribune on the fact that one of McCain's current advisers was a lobbyist for Franny Mae and Freddie Mac who helped reduce regulation on these funds helping them to crash---oh yeah by the way they paid him truckloads of money for his supposed services as well....but who cares right?
Yet if the common citizen tries to do what Bush's buddies have done, (that is raid the US treasury) the police are after them. A treasury department armored car overturned dumping nickels on the highway and motorists stopped and started helping themselves---of course this type of behavior must be stopped---stealing from the US treasury is limited to Republican political bigwigs and those who play golf with them---no infringing on their turf...

A leader in the "it's all fun and games until someone gets their eye put out" category is this article on a Russian technician who in 1978 "accidentally" put his head in front of a particle beam accelerator and got a Proton shot completely through his head....let me repeat that-----got a Proton shot completely through his head----and lived! You really need to read this...
In other science news---NASA has moved a spare space shuttle to a launch pad just in case,just in case mind you, the next shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Telescope has a problem. You see going to the Hubble means the repair shuttle cannot hooch up at the international space station if there is a problem---plus they only have 25 days of oxygen and it takes something like 3 months to get a shuttle ready sooooo gotta start now------rocket science man---we really need a better government.

I went for a great ride this past Sunday morning on my "HOG" my segway human transporter....i rode down to our bank, testing the route so to say for 'normal' errand type bank runs in the future---being in line at the drive up teller window ought to be a hoot--due to the wide variety of sidewalk conditions in town, i had to take to the street several times and let's face it i got scared---i created a strange, bending, paranoid turning of my body to see if i was about to be run down by an i ordered a mountain bike style Velcro strap on rear-view mirror for my i2. Just paranoid maybe... but there are some really,really vicious soccer mom's in town driving really,really fast to get junior to his special needs event or to pick up Juniors ADD medication so...better safe than sorry.
I was disappointed in Obama in the debate---read somebody's blog it will make them feel good---sit outside and relax--wear something different to work something people would not expect of you---send people very strange t-shirts as birthday presents---take pictures---carry a bag with your most important stuff---be cool.
