Slept for craperoo last night, weird dreams, dunno what. *shrug* Just another day in paradise. Hmm, need food. Hmm, not much in the house, need to hit the grocery today.

Almost caught up with my comics...finally have all of Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse which I've been wanting to read for ages, but I missed several issues, then got all of them in my box but didn't have the spare cash to pick them up...yeah, whatever. Got them now, and they were great. I've been a fan of Ben Templesmith's art for ages. Fun stuff.

Take the Sci fi sounds quiz I received 100 credits on

How much of a Sci-Fi geek are you?

I hate it when they don't tell you what you missed at the end. No, I'm just blind, they DO tell you if you got it right or wrong...and it turns out I had mis-clicked one. Man, I need to go back to bed.

So, now the "ohmygod" talk seems to be about Britney Spears' little sister, Jamie, being pregnant at 16.

First off, what can you expect from such a fucked-up family?

Secondly, and this is my real crux, here: people are whining about how they didn't want their 8-12-year-old-daughters to be exposed to this sort of thing, blah, blah, whine, whine. One father is quoted as saying “It’s usually Britney Spears who would do that stuff, not Jamie Lynn. She was supposed to be one of the good, clean actresses for girls to follow after. I think it just sends an awful message for the young girls.” Me, I think it's a much worse message in the first place that children are supposed to look up to and follow in the footsteps of actors and celebrities. Overly rich for doing a small amount of "entertainment", and spending most of their time idle, obsessed with image and lacking any real depth, achievement, or even attempt at being one of the rest of us, living high and foolish on money and fame, and then crashing hard on their excesses.

This, THIS is what you want your children to look up to? A bunch of shallow idiots who care more about being seen in some specific fashion than in making some useful and meaningful contribution to the species?!? And you have the sheer AUDACITY to blame the lack of standards, attention span, or care on anyone but yourselves as parents? Is it any wonder that I think humanity, in general, is a bunch of useless flesh-bags?

Please, give generously. Help me support licensed breeding.
