available here. unfortunately, i still haven't practiced any html stuff on the site. oh well.
they often say stupid things. but than again, so do many americans. on that note, this article by mark steyn is, as usual, amazing. and even this one by some guy i've never heard of was pretty good. (free registration required, but i think it's well worth it).

and actually feels like taking the time to write about it. i've thought almost exactly along these lines for years, but a combination of laziness and a lack of education on the relationship between israel and the "palestinians" has kept me from writing about it. jay tea's piece is actually a response to a rather large comment, but i think it's a good read.

"It's queer how out of touch with truth women are. They live in a world of their own, and there had never been anything like it, and never can be. It is too beautiful altogether, and if they were to set it up it would go to pieces before the first sunset. Some confounded fact that we men have been living contentedly with ever since the day of creation woutl start up and knock the whole thing over."
bonus points to anyone who can tell me who/what the quote is from.
on that note, i hate mornings. i've got my first day of work tomorrow, so it's time for bed.

So apparently you can email updates to your blog. let's see if it works.
All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. --Missionaria Protectiva

last night, i was playing trivial pursuit with some friends and had a rather stupid moment. a question something along the lines of this came to me:
"Which actor was the first to be a pitch man for an internet company?"
while i was contemplating an answer, one of the other players asked what a pitch man was; i gave them the example of william shatner doing advertisements for priceline.com. i finally gave up and threw out some random name, only to find out that the correct answer was actually william shatner. i stayed upset for the rest of the game.
logic that makes sense until you think about it:
1) Liberals want all people to be equal
2) The only time all people are equal is when they're dead
3) Therefore, liberals want all people to be dead
technically it's a valid argument, but it's far from being a sound one.
ok, now i'm off to do something else unproductive. later.
oh yeah, i put up a list of the books i've read so far over here; i'll be updating it as i go.
