I am stuck in this recurring dream of being a corporate wage serf paying off massive student loans.
I may be your sys-admin, I will delete your Windows partition given the means. I have methods to replace it with some un*x variant. The C.L.I. is your friend.
I am 2/3 vulcan, 3/4 klingon, 1 part cougar, and 2 parts elf. Born near Aldeberan, in the Year of the Wood Dragon, I don't remember where I parked my space ship. I think Galactic Central mentioned revoking my Worm Hole Transit Operator License for Sliding under the influence of Meticulous Obsessions.
Don't believe everything you think.
My opinions are subject to change without notice.
Like my icons, cool! Just give me props in the name if you use them, tnx honey bunny >;}~ !
"Our government's control of drugs is really intended to control our citizens' mental states. The substances themselves are not important unless they affect human minds (and some, such as nitrous oxide, are freely sold for non-mind-altering uses, but controlled when people wish to influence their own mental states)."
"These drugs appear to be prohibited by the government because they permit users to see that the world is not composed of a single point of view, a single concrete reality shared by all. The way each of us interacts with the world is a function of our internal brain chemistry, which is unique to each of us, and can be altered by our own choice or by imposed choices. The government seeks to impose its answer to the choice of whether or not to view reality in certain ways. These altered ways have clearly been useful in religion, art, music, medicine, and recreation for millennia. These government attempts to control the minds of its citizens are a direct violation of the basic Constitutional freedoms that the government is designed to secure for ourselves and our posterity." -- John Gilmore

"Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time." -- Steven Wright
""The progress of science in furnishing the Government with means of espionage is not likely to stop with wire-tapping. Ways may some day be developed by which the Government, without removing papers from secret drawers, can reproduce them in court, and by which it will be enabled to expose to a jury the most intimate occurrences of the home. . . . Can it be that the Constitution affords no protection against such invasions of individual security?" -- Justice Brandeis 1928
"Always remember that you are unique. Just like everyone else."
