Face it, no matter how great it can be, technology sucks.

Saving the Salton Sea

I sometimes worry about my mental health.  I’m lying in bed and I get these manic ideas of social research about spatial awareness or even how to save the world. You know bullshit theories.

This is a good one.

Recycling is Bullshit

The Bear was so fucking proud of the “campaign” she created for her 6th grade class using “Recycle Michael,” a tin-man like character made from “recyclables.” 

…I don’t have the heart to tell her that recycling is bullshit.

Please stop trying to expand my mind.  Maybe it’s just me, but every where I turn people are talking about psychedelics like I’m doing something wrong because I haven’t tripped balls with a Peruvian Guru.

Shaman, sorry, Peruvian fucking shaman.

Totalitarian Tech

George Orwell got it slightly wrong.  Big Brother is not a totalitarian political dictator, he’s the tech nerd trying to “make your life better.”

We know Facebook  and Google make their money selling data about us.  There’s billions in knowing who you are, who you know, what you do and where you go.

Post-Op Bullshit

The surgeon looked at me with the kind of disgust one saves for making sure the cockroach is dead before you throw it in the trash.

“What do you mean it still hurts?” he said. “You had a leaf tear and I smoothed it all out.”

Diphthong Denea

One of the fucked-up things about playing recreational tennis is away matches.

You have to drive to some other part of town and play on strange courts.  And worse, we can’t just walk to the Third World bar to enjoy some popcorn and beer with the resident mice — we are forced to pick a different bar.
