10:33 pm - What the fuck???
Why is it that every time I see a midget, I immediately want to fight crime and have them be my sidekick?

No.

Really.

What the fuck is up with that?

Meghann had a piece of drill bit fly off of a drill press and hit her in the eye, she's had surgery a few times now, but prospects are not good for that eye & Heidi had a weird ass tumor taken out of her body. All of this in the span of a week or so!

I talked to my mother today and she feels that people should be allowed to have any opinion they want, and I shouldn't be angry with them if they don't bother to educate themselves in order to gain said opinion. You know, that they should just be able to arbitrarily point to some idea and say "yep, that's the one for me!"

I may have torn into her a little bit for that. I just find it unacceptable that when something applies directly to you in this world, that you completely ignore it and just hope that whomever else handles it appropriately. Which, really, is what everybody in our country does. They don't look at the situation, they turn a blind eye to it and hope that we're doing what is right. They swallow whatever is thrown at them because it makes them feel righteous about what is going on. It's really sad, to be honest.

An average person can become so infinitely beautiful with just a bit of aesthetic touch. T-shirts, shorts, dresses, et cetera are bland. They just make you look as bland as the next person. The stifle, rather than express, your personality! Where in the hell are all the beautiful gothic-punk chics around here?!?

Doesn't -anybody- have good taste?


Or is it that a pair of plain old blue jeans and some tight fitting but ultimately bland shirt of whichever overpriced designer label you purchased it from actually that exciting, and it's really just me that's the freak?

. . .


Not that I've much room to talk... I've not the shape at all to pull off an even remotely entertaining style, for the most part. Not to mention work dissapproves. Though, from time to time when given the chance, I at least try to put SOME freakin' personality into my clothes!!!
___________________________

You know....the only things that I -really- have in common with other people are a.) humor, and b.) instinct.

I share the same humor as a good amount of people, and I'm very much on an instinctual plane with alot of people in terms of how we all enjoy the feeling of running, climbing, jumping, et cetera.

But, beyond that....nothing really. I dig computers, but I'm not nerd enough to talk computers alot. I dig music, but for me it's an emotional response, and that's just fucking hard to share with somebody.

It's just that complete lack of emotional connection with other people that makes me depressed, because of course it makes me feel alone. You know, phantomesque. Not in that you can do fucking cool things like walk through walls and cause general havoc, but that you can almost interact with people, but not quite. You just can't make a connection, even if you're reaching.

Plus, I'm just completely socially inept. I think emotional connection, and I look for a fucking cord & plug, but I can't find one. Who the hell designed humans like this anyways? Certainly wasn't an engineer. I mean, seriously, some of this shit is unforgivable.

Especially orgasms. That shit should be by choice. You want to have an orgasm, you just freakin' have one. That way you can go at it as long or as short as you like without any trouble!

The only single & universal truth that I have stumbled upon is this:

No matter what you asprie to be, be it a doctor, lawyer, priest, god, politician, dentist, janitor, IT guru, restauranteer, police officer, firefighter, nurse, forensic pathologist, FBI sharpshooter, sculptor, actor, painter, photographer, director, producer, hooker, et cetera, et cetera, the blatant fact of the matter is that what you -REALLY- want to be, deep down, is a pirate space ninja.

Everything that you are, and everything that you aspire to be inexorably leads you towards this one goal.

And that's a fact!

But that's not the point of this post, so let's get down to brass tacks. Though, really, you move a single R and brass tacks becomes bass tracks. Hmmm.....bass tracks... I have just the thing! Hooverphonic's "Shake the Disease".

Well, shit. Now I don't even remember what this post was originally going to be about. Something, I think, that had to do with a study showing that men prefer to have more partners than women. They tested it across several cultures on I believe 5 continents? Something like that. Anyhow, people are making a huge deal out of it, as though it is somehow an incredibly telling & meaningful thing. Now, I could see it's application in a nature Vs. nurture argument, but the rest doesn't seem particularly important to me.

Fun sexual facts (I hope, at least, but I didn't research them myself) of the day:
-Average time of male orgasm during intercourse: 5 minutes.
-Average time of male orgasm during masturbation: 2 minutes. (NOBODY loves me better'n me, baby!)
-Average time of female orgasm during intercourse: 15 minutes.
-Percentage of non-orgasmic females (from intercourse): 40%. Yeah, you read that right.
-Of those, 50% cannot incur an orgasm where the only stimulation is intercourse.
-Some (very small number) of women experience periodic orgasms during their menstrual cycle.
-When women live together, their menstrual cycles tend to synchronize.
-Women say the average erect penis is 4 inches. (That is what women -say-, that doesn't mean that's the actual average, before ya'll start boasting to me about how you've got some 10 incher...)
-30% of women will cheat on their husband, and of those that cheat about 30% of their husbands find out. So there's a 1 in 3 chance your wife has cheated on you. What's more, there's a 2 in 3 chance you don't know about it.
-The chance of a man cheating on his wife is, of course, higher (though I don't have the exact information on that handy)
-Despite the common rumor, more men than women have had a homosexual experience.
-Women could be jailed for denying their husband intercourse up until 1884.
-Statistically speaking, women who masturbated during adolescence are more likely to find gratification in marital coitus than women who did not.
-In each ejaculate the average number of abnormal sperm is 10%. This explains my brother.
-Oral sex is the preferrable way for 10% of men to orgasm, and 20% of women to orgasm.

I think that's enough for now. It's so late, and I'm so tired, that I'm probably writing gibberish. Yay gibberish!

And no freaky replies! =P

So, today I'm rollin' with my homies on the 234 (that's a bus route of course, which will mean nothing to anybody except locals here that have ridden it. Consequently, this whole part of my post will mean nothing to you either), when I notice something unusual....

Like, we're going down I-405.

One, knowing me, would first surmise I got on the wrong bus, but nay nay I say. This was, indeed, the 234.

Cruising down I-405.

And the route wasn't changed, either. Which just makes me have to wonder, are you a dodecahedron, or a octagon baby, 'cause you be lookin' FINE!
________________________________________________

In other news, I find that I am getting absolutely -NO- satisfaction with "I told you so" in regards to our current situation in the Middle East.

I believe you are all familiar, or should be, with the oil rant by now. You know...where you pay taxes on gas, so that your government can help suppress alternate modes of transportation, so that you are sure to spend that money on gas, so that the oil barons can fund their political positions, so that they all grow fat and bloated on your money. And then, they send your children to do what? Go get them some more oil, which they just passed a little thing stating basically "if the US takes Iraqi oil, tough shit for the Iraqi's". So, you send your children to potentially die, so that you can use an outdated mode of transportation in order to keep the people sending your children to potentially die in power. It's fantastic!

It's funny....you know....how we're liberating Iraq. You know, by doing things like telling them we want them to have a voice in their nation, to be a democracy. And then we appoint their council of "leaders", and then tell them that they will be the interim government. And then, later, we tell them they won't be. Last I checked, when you invade a country and disallow them from being the governing body, it's an occupation. Not a liberation.

What does Bush call raping a 10 year old girl, liberating her virginity?

"Listen bitch, this is for your own good, you must be liberated! Now stop crying and squirming, I don't care what you want, we're doing this -MY- way!"

I've always been a problem solver, more than a visionary. I look at things occurring now, or about to occur in the near future, and I look at ways to prevent, circumvent, what have you. I can't begin to discern what decisions to make today, to prepare for what -will- occur 20 years from now. I have great respect, however, for those whom have had that forsight.

So, with that said, give me some problems to mull around in my head, as I quite enjoy thinking about them! And I already -know- what all of my concerns in the world are. What are yours? What do you feel is important, and needs to be addressed?
________________________________________________

I like hearing what other people have to say/think, and responding to it, so I think perahps it's time I actually start reading other people's livejournals again. Though that is always certainly a difficult task, with so much to read & respond to, but it is also a very fulfilling task. It's typically something that promotes growth & engenders the idea of working with others, when people aren't being bastards about things of course...

I don't know. So much to do, so little time. I'll never have the time to learn all the things I want to know, and that depresses me. I am, however, starting to get some pretty awesome house idea's kicking around in my head. So now, of course, all I need is to pick up a house.

I always found it ironic that, in school, you couldn't say shit. Shit, an adjective to describe fecal excrement. It's like deciding that snot is a bad word for being an adjective that describes excrement from the mucus membrane...But I digress.

You can't say shit in school...

...but hate is perfectly acceptable.

Hate.

What is shit compared to hate? Did shit lead to the crusades, inquisition or holocaust? I don't think shit was attributed to the Greensborough massacre, "Bloody Sunday", or Tiananmen Square. Tribal bickering & killing, I doubt, was due to their distaste for each other's shit, nor do I believe that slaverly followed by years of social repression due to race in the United States was directly correlated to this accursed excrement. The list, of course, could go on for days.

Yeah, shit is awful.

Hate, on the other hand.... well, hate is just fine.

Hate.

Think about it.

6:54 am - True or false...
When she was a young woman, sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer once lived in Israel. There, she was a trained sniper. She was so adept at handling a Sten gun- a British submachine gun- that she could quickly assemble one while blindfolded?

9:13 pm - Critical thinking...
No, hey, come back!

It's not what you think, I swear!

...

So, anyways, critical thinking... Have you noticed how this is not taught in any way, shape or form in school? We do not encourage the vaguest notion of truly thinking for oneself. Critical thinking, to most, means that harder math question at the end of the chapter. You know, that problem in geometry where it showed you a pool table and gave you a few measurements, and then you had to A.) algebraically figure out precise measurements for the ones not given, and you had to do it using the pathagorean theorem.

You know, something like that.

The reason I bring this up, actually, has to do with traffic. I mean, when was the last time in the Seattle region (yeah, everybody else is off the hook), that people talked about an overall good plan to alleviate traffic congestion which did not include dragging fellow motorists out of their cars and shooting them in the face in a homicidal rage?

Which, mind you, could work and would ALSO alleviate unemployment at the same time by opening up positions in the job market.....ok.....I better stop here, because given my general distaste for humanity I may begin to tout this as our most viable option...

So, back to the situation at hand...

Hark, do I hear the cry of the silly? What say you? Widen the streets, add more lanes? Why, of course! It's brillian!!! In, of course, that completely wasteful and idiotic way! While we are on a roll, let's make it illegal to commute via any means of transportation save pogo-sticks!

Let's review the simple facts:
1.) To widen the freeways, and the interchanges, would cost us so much money it would make your eyes bleed. And your nose. And your ears. And, in fact, it may even make the eyes of your pets bleed. We're talking 15 billion or so on the short end.
2.) There comes a point where you have 50 lanes of freeway, and 44 of them are empty, and there are still 3,000 cars backed up because they are all trying to use the same exit. We are talking flow, and alleviating bottlenecks, which means finding an alternate way to get people into the city.
3.) We are, basically, out of options in regards to the freeways. It is time to look at alternate modes of transportation.
A.) Train. Less expensive than widening all the freeways, but expensive because you would still need to procure space for it to run.

B.) Bus. Good in theory, but forget it with King County metro. They want to run their program reactively, build as they get ridership. Hint for Metro to consider: Nobody wants to ride the flipping bus when it takes them 3 hours to get somehwere it takes 45 minutes to drive!!! You need good coverage FIRST, and THEN you get ridership.

C.) Teleportation devices. Best idea, but back to reality...

D.) Subway. Subways are great, but they are expensive as HELL. You don't have to acquire new property, but tunneling is not cheap, AND you have to ventilate the subway, wire it for electricity, fire suppression, escape routes, et cetera. Very not so cheap, almost as bad as trying to widen all our freeways and the like.

E.) Light Rail. Well, it still takes up ground space which means you have to either have huge costs to acquire new land, and even if you do so that's still space that could be dedicated to traffic. They, in cities, have to run with the lights as they are on the ground. That means that they don't move much faster than your car when in downtown. They are also noisy, and more expensive to operate than most the other options here.

F.) Monorail. Hmmm, let's see here. They require no real annexation of land (which saves a bundle), the pillars and rail can be pre-fabricated and require no fire suppresion or ventilation (which means it's -CHEAP-). They take no ground space whereas Trains and Light Rail does. That, in and of itself, means no negative impact on current traffic conditions. You're not taking away from the current roadways at ALL, so even if nobody ever rode it there would be no negative impact on traffic. It ALSO, since it is elevated, gets people into the city WITHOUT using the same consistantly clogged exit ramps. Furthermore, since it's so much cheaper, you can have a MUCH broader transportation system implement. And, what that means is, the more people whom can use it from varying locales then the less people are going to be on the roads directly. Into the costs you are also considering the fact that you want them running ever 4 minutes or so, and their departure/arrival timeframes are clockwork. You know that from Bellevue to Downtown Seattle, for instance, will take you 19 minutes. That is 19 minutes during rush-hour, where it can normally take you closer to an hour. Not only that, but if you implement quick mass transit between cities, you can simplify and improve the bus system (and in turn your overall mass transit options). If the bus systems no longer had to cover routes such as Bellevue to Redmond, Redmond to Seattle, Seattle to Bothel, and all the mish-mash of variables (which covers the majority of their routes), then they could concentrate on better short-distance coverage. You would have constant and dedicated transit between population centers, and so now you only have to worry about improving bus coverage in the immediate area surrounding the monorail depot. Monorail is also the cheapest of all the different options, which means that it costs us less money (and I don't know about you, but I quite enjoy saving money).

Do my ass a favor, as my commute blows the chunks so to speak, and go look at making the monorail regional.

I know that alot of us commute up and down the 405 corridor, or have to get to Seattle from the Eastside, or vice versa. So, how about we start doing it intelligently?

Or, would you like us to widen the roads?
