Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

Computer: ‘Bugger’ is a noun, ‘git’ is a sub-standard verb, and ‘gitling’ is not in any of my word bases.
Mazer: I made ‘gitling’ up but it’s an excellent word, so use it. And I can’t believe they programmed you without ‘bugger off’ in the word base.

Pictures and photographs, memories and windows,
goodbyes and epitaphs, heartbreaks and hellos…

Poor Pluto

slated in mainstream at 6:20 pm

The New Solar System (Pluto is now a "dwarf planet")

Can we seriously just demote Pluto like that? Pluto’s always been the littlest planet in our solar system. Our solar system. Our littlest planet. We loved it as our littlest, ninth planet. And now we’ve just outgrown its cuteness and decided we don’t need it as a planet anymore :-/

Now where we learned “9 planets and one sun”, kids in school will memorize a few more names when they’re learning the solar system: 8 planets and 3 “dwarf planets” — Ceres, Pluto, and “2003 UB313”/Xena.

I guess it works… Still seems a lil sad though…a lil dwarf planet sad.

The End of War

slated in mainstream at 8:31 pm

From 12minds

Here is my big issue with what happens when both sides of the aisle wrap the flag around the conflict in Iraq: people like Terry Lisk get forgotten. It becomes a broad and abstract idea that none of us really know anything about. It turns into a general overarching grand concept of truth, ideals and virtue. It becomes a black and white argument with no middle ground while the truth of the matter is that the truth itself is the thing that lies in the gulf between the two.
