Recent Events ( The End of Time...! )

i'm still here in Hawai'i...!!!
i was going to do laundry thursday, which is sort of tramsom that must be passed under before i can do anything else...
Then i was going to do laundry friday, but didn't...
Now it's saturday... i can't laundry saturday, everyone does laundry saturday, or sunday-- so i'll have to wait until monday...
There's a flight to San Francisco at around 2 something pm... so i'd have plenty of time to do laundry in the morning... and get some long socks, and a new hat...???
i don't know though...
i've been seriously considering getting a bus pass for $40, even though i may only be in one day of August...!!! i really don't want to pay $2 per ride, that seems too much to me...!!!
i was looking at fares today... United Airlines, which usually has the HIGHEST fares, for some reason now has the lowest fares...???
But that may be for online sales only...
i don't want to buy a ticket online.

i got another weird blister on my right index finger...
where do these come from...???
it's very VERY mysterious. (! )

i have to take a shower before i go back too...
that would have to be Sunday night...
i usually always take showers in the morning...
Everything is all topsy turvey...!!!
Plus: i'm afraid that it will be TOO COLD in Washington...!
it is too cold HERE in the mornings.

i do not know what to do.

i've been fixing things, or trying to fix things.
i sewed up my calculator/pencil bag the other day, and that worked out marginally well...
the inseams were totally torn out, so there wasn't much to sew into without massively reducing the interiour size of the bag, and the calculator barely fits as it is...???
And my backpack's main pouch zipper had torn loose on one side... so i tried to sew that back on, but i was so afraid of sewing it too close 'inside' that i sewed it too far 'outside' and it came loose a few days later again, so i sewed it up again, using a slightly different technique, but it still looked wrong, and i think it's coming loose again already...!
it is not so big that there is a Major Problem of things falling out ( yet ) but it is an annoyance...!

i was walking around the other day when i heard a 'clunk!' and turned around to see my glasses case on the lawn...! i'd forgotten to zip up that pouch the last time i was into it...!!!
i'm becoming more and more senile...!!!

everything scares me.

my right knee that was getting better for awhile, started getting worse again, so i taped it back up, and there's another owie on my right leg ( thigh ) that is taped up too now.
i am falling apart.

i hate everything.

what i am most looking forward to; is getting one of those little DVD / HDTV ( wide screen ) players and subscribing to Netflix again.
and doing a bunch of little watercolours.

i would also like to read Moby Dick.
i really should have read it by now.
i am too lazy.

i squandered this months allowance down to the last penny this month,
i've totally lost faith in the future.
i hate listening to the news.
everyone is a moron.
i don't believe that 'The Terrorists' are real.
i think that it's all Street Theatre arranged by The Idyl Rich from Texas.
so that they can rise the price of their oil.
it's no more complicated than that.

Flying Saucers & Suicide Bombers are alot alike in that neither of them make a lick of sense.
The most annoying thing about SB'ers is that:
a) they never tell anyone why they're blowing themselves up.
b) once they've blown themselves up, they can't blow anything else up.
Someone is brainwashing them to blowthemselves up.
The Idylly rich texans.
Crop Circles.
same thing with Crop Circles and Cattle Mutilations...
( Now there are CAT Mutilations too... ! )
Cat Mutilations
None of it makes a lick of sense...
UNTIL you consider that there are sociopathic rich people out there they like to 'arrange' things for their personal amusement...
Dada + $$$ = NoMoreMysteries

Do you know what the Best TV show was of all time...???
and it only ran for like 5 Episodes...
It was:
On DVD...!!! More Info... Barnes&Nobles Only $24.28!!!

Recent Events & Such...

A few weeks ago, i noticed that the inside edge of my first fingers, on both hands were getting really callused, and i couldn't figure out what could be causing that, since i never engage in any sort of manual labor or effort of any kind...??? Then i got this really weird, big blister on my right hand, on that same callused edge of my first finger, then about a week after that, i got another one, a little higher up, near the fingernail, then a week or so later-- Another one, only this time on my left hand, along the callused edge of my first finger...!!!
i popped all three as soon as i noticed them, and all three have taken along time to heal...???

i've gone about year now ( in Hawai'i ), and along time before that, without loosing anything... And within the last week, i've lost THREE things...!!!
1: My beloved Green Bandana
2: The Replacement WildPink Bandana
3: A Hair band
i lost both of the Bandanas while i was on the bus, reading...!!!
The Green was lost while reading The latest Harry Potter Book
And the WildPink one was lost while reading Art Bell's The Source
And the Hair Band was lost-- i don't know when...
( within the last week...! ??? )
i'm just frazzled!
Fortunately, i got a new Green Bandana and my Fung Shui for my back-pack has been restored...!

Someone has been CRAPPING around the place that i sleep at night...!!!
They must be doing in during the day time, since i'm there all night.
i think that they've done it at least twice, over this last weekend...
( July 23-24 )
i can't really smell it from where i sleep, but it's quite noticable on the way there, as you'd walk around the building to get there...!
If anyone caught me sleeping back there, i'm sure that it would be quite 'REASONABLE' to think that -i- was the one that did it...!!! It would be alot more reasonable than thinking a person in a puffy coat was a MAD BOMBER...!!!
Sometimes when i'm accused of something that i DIDN'T do, my holistic side starts to invade my conscious, and i think 'Maybe i am, in some incomprehensible way, partly responsible!' and of course, if i were to confide my doubts to the Police -- LOOK OUT...!!!

Police shot Brazilian eight times
Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, 27, was shot seven times in the head and once in the shoulder, at Stockwell Tube station, south London, on Friday.
Tony Blair said he was "desperately sorry" an innocent man had lost his life.
The prime minister said it was right for Britain to express its "sorrow and deep sympathy" to Mr Menezes' family.
But he said the police must be supported in doing their job.
He added that "they would have been criticised had the suspect turned out to be a terrorist and they had failed to take action."
London Mayor Ken Livingstone described Mr Menezes as a "victim of the terrorist attacks".

It just makes me crazy whenever the police murder some innocent victum, then blame the person that they were supposed to have been after... There's somekind of quirky 'double standard' in that if you, by some inadvertant happenstance, help a crimminal to perpetrate some crime, then you are 100% equally guilty of the crime at they are, and in fact, it is usally the case that the 'underlings' are somehow -more- culpable than the mastermind, But when the police, by their direct action, murder someone completely unconnected to their original intentions, they are 100% innocent...!
i wonder if Tony Blair's comment can be inferred to mean that if you see someone on a bus or subway train, and you think 'Maybe that guy has a bomb in his back-pack or in her purse' -- You will be completely forgiven, in fact praised, for shooting them repeatedly, and gratuitously in the head and shoulders... You certainly wouldn't want anyone to second guess your motives and blame you for a 'Potential' bombing... Even if it never actually occurs. You can't be too careful these days -- Wouldn't you rather see dozens of innocent people murdered every day, than allow one suspicious, scruffy looking person to ride on a bus unchallenged...!!! ( ? )

i'm still in Hawai'i...
( The little mark between the i's is an okina! )
...i really need to get out of here, if i'm going to THIS YEAR...!!!
so i'm thinking of August 1st... For some reason, i am loath to spend 2$ on the bus ride from Wahiawa to the Airport that morning... i would 'almost' rather buy a $40 buspass, then wait 5 days ( 4 trips per day @ 2$ = 8$ x 5 = 40$ ) before leaving...
OR i could leave on July 31st, but to do that, i would have to transfer at least 200$ from my savings account to my checking account, and i am equally loath to do that...!!!
i have pretty much decide though, that i'm going to take ATA, and fly 'Standby' even though they don't have any flights to Portland or Seattle(?), so i would have to fly to San Francisco and then hitchhike up the coast, looking for a nice clean, friendly, inexpensive town along the way to live in...???
[ it all seems completely hopeless to me...! ]

Recent Biddles... ( Late July )

i woke up this morning at arount 3:30am and discovered that that 'bloated' feeling i had last night had transformed itself into acute diarhea...!!! i had a 'damp patch' in my pants about the size of a baseball, so i jumped out of my sleeping bag, and sat on a handkercheif while i threw all my stuff together and walked over to the 'other' park on the far side of town, since the one just around the corner from where i sleep, locks their bathrooms at night...! What came out when i sat down there was about a quart of pale root beer coloured poop...! i honestly think that i extrude about twice as much as i take in... i usually only drink 2 coffees a day and pee 4 times, at least... Is that too much... What is too much...??? So i washed out my pants and i've been feeling quite a bit better since then...??? What cause this...??? i ate a couple of 'suspect' things yesterday, but i really thought that both of them 'passed all the usual tests...!!!' i think that what is happening is that my intestines are simply refusing to digest anything other than cinnamon rolls...???


Have you ever found a baby bird and wanted to take it home with you...???
Did you know that it may be Illegal...!!! ( ??? )
In Washington State it is--
But i snubbed my nose at John Law a few years ago and took one in anyways...!
Here are some tips that i learned from either the local PAWS organization,
&/or the school of hard knocks...!

1 ) Baby birds like Cat Food...! Just take a can of cat food and mix it with some water in a blender and feed it too the bird whenever it's hungry... Use a squirting bottle...??? i used a small Elmers Glue bottle that i cleaned out Really Well...! and then cut off the inside 'stick' so that the cat food would squirt out quite neatly with a gentle squeeze. Sometimes the cat food will become clumpy, and rather than sqeeze harder, you should clear the obstruction...!!!
i once had this problem, and just squeezed harder... and when it came out, it knocked my poor bird off it's perch and sent it flying... before it was ready for flying...!

2) i kept my baby bird in a box that i had laying around, and put down several layers of newspapers on the bottom, so that instead of changing the newspapers ( frequently ) i could just peel off the top sheet ( or two ) and it would be nice and clean again.

3) this was in the spring, but i wanted my baby bird to be nice a warm, so i set the box over the electric heater and turned it on to a very low temperature, which made the inside of the box just warm enough...???

4) Your baby bird will let you know when it's hungry by cheeping alot and opening its mouth...! It will do this every 20 minutes or so, all day long, for a few weeks, at least, so you'll have to stay home with it, or take it with you, or have somebody bird-sit for you... It shouldn't be allowed to go hungry for more than a hour or two...!!! When it gets dark outside, just put a blanket or somesuch over the box ( with holes in the sides...!!! ) and let it and you get some sleep.

5) i don't see how any of these birds with 'open nests' ever produce any birds that reach maturity...! my bird was all over the place and it's incomprehensible to me that a wild bird would sit patiently in a tiny nest for weeks before it was finally ready to leave the nest and fly away...???

6) Don't let your baby bird fly around your room...!

7) Be sure that it can fly really good before you let it loose...!

8) Be sure that it can feed itself before you let it loose...!

9) i let my bird out too early and fortunately i was able to retrieve it the first night, and bring it back inside for another week...
Also-- it kept coming back for a week after it was flying around outside and demanded that i continue to feed it...!

10 ) What else...??? i gave it a bath one afternoon, and it really seemed to like the warm water being poured over it... for awhile...! then it started shivering terribly, so i took it out and dried it off really thoroughly...???

11 ) When it finally leaves, it will probably be kind of abruptly, and you may think that a local cat ate it -- But it may just have flown away as they are meant to.

Don't expect postcards!

TeleTransportation... ( ? ) [ !!! ]

i found this via the Art Bell Website:
( reprinted here without permission )

In his new book, Teleportation 'The Impossible Leap',

published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.,
writer David Darling contends that
"One way or another, teleportation is going to play a major role in all our futures. It will be a fundamental process at the heart of quantum computers, which will themselves radically change the world."
Darling suggests that some form of classical teleportation and replication for inanimate objects also seems inevitable. But whether humans can make the leap, well, that remains to be seen.
Teleporting a person would require a machine that isolates, appraises, and keeps track of over a trillion trillion atoms that constitute the human body, then sends that data to another locale for reassembly

--and hopefully without mussing up your physical and mental makeup.
"One thing is certain: if that impossible leap turns out to be merely difficult -a question of simply overcoming technical challenges- it will someday be accomplished," Darling predicts.
In this regard, Darling writes that the quantum computer
"is the joker in the deck, the factor that changes the rules of what is and isn't possible."
Just last month, in fact, scientists at Hewlett Packard announced that they've hammered out a new tactic for a creating a quantum computer -using switches of light beams rather than today's run of the mill, transistor-laden devices. What's in the offing is hardware capable of making calculations billions of times faster than any silicon-based computer.
Given quantum computers and the networking of these devices, Darling senses the day may not be far off for routine teleportation of individual atoms and molecules. That would lead to teleportation of macromolecules and microbes with, perhaps, human teleportation to follow.

It seems to me that the way to go about transporting something,

is to approach the problem in the same way that technicians & engineers invented Television...!
That is; With brute force, and not having any idea of how difficult the problem really is!
Step One:
Think of Matter as the amalgamation of gravity waves,

and that all physical objects are Gravity Holograms.
This doesn't discount the apparent factoid that physical objects appear to made up of hard crusty lumps that we call particles...
It merely means that these so called particles are the crests of gravity waves.
Normal gravity; as we experience it,
When it's pulling us towards large planetary bodies,
or keeping those bodies in orbit around suns
Is both; too feeble & chaotic to spontaneously form matter on its own.
To make matter, you have to invent a Gravity Laser.
Step Two:
Invent a gravity laser [ gaser ] ( ??? ).
Step Three: ( or step two...? )
Invent a detector that can see the fine details of gravity waves.
Step Four:
Use these two devices to make Gravity Holograms.
Step Five:
To 'Set' a gravity hologram into a solid mass,

resulting in either the duplication of an object,
or transporting one over some distance,
you have to somehow ( finally-- the tricky part! )
'fix' the hologram with a the blast of a gravitational freezing beam,
so that the waves & troughs of the hologram 'step up' to constitute matter.
Further commentary:
As noted in the introduction; the important step, the most important step here is to think of this problem the way that the engineers did when they were inventing the Television...!

The remarkable thing about the early televisions was that they were transmitting literally terabytes of information at a time when to archive a television broadcast,
they had to record it with cinemagraphic film...!
The earliest Tonight Shows existed ( until recently ) only on film...
And when we went to The Moon,
The gawd-dang MOON...!!!
The first digital cameras that they took with them were only in Black & White...!!!
( as was the film in their Hasselblad & Nikon cameras...!!! )
There seems to be this preoccupation -now- with the assumed fact that to transport something,

you have 'Remember' all the data that you're transmitting...!
NO... No & NO!
They didn't have to do that when they were inventing Television,

They didn't have to do it when recording the first 'Records',
They didn't have to do it with Holograms,
And it doesn't make any sense that they're going to have to do it with The First Generation of Transporters...!
And when we finally get around to 'Recording' People and saving them as Holograms to Reconstitute later,

i very much suspect that we will have invented a storage medium that doesn't require us to label every byte...!
Do we have to label every byte on an LP,

or a VideoCassette...
No-- We don't!
Gravity Holograms will be stored on somekind of crystalline lattices,

and we'll be able to store the entire population of the Earth in a shoe box.
Predicted Invention of the First Transporters: 2063.
( write that down! )

i was also going to mention that i don't believe in 'Quantum' Computing...
i think that in a few months or years,
physicists will finally come to their senses and admit that all this quantum 'nonsense' was alot of hooey,
and that now they're going to start acting like adults again...

'Save' for The HP48gx

i am having the most terrible time with this entry...
it seems that the html reader keeps misinterpreting

my backslashes & other seemingly benign characters
as instructions for it's formater...???

What is the most annoying thing that you have to constantly worry about when using a programmable calculator...???
For me; It's Saving things!
i find it tremendously tedious to think up names for items that i want to save,
Often; i only want to save an item for a mintue or two,

and the act of thinking up a new; unique name that i've not already used is quite stressfull...!!!
So i've come up with, and evolved, a program that saves things for me,

always careful to use a unique name that's prefixed with a general reminder of what it is...

How to use It:
This program ( Save ) has a Double Click Option;
So that if you Double Click the Key to Activate it--
By Using Either a Menu Key, Choose ENTER Key, or a UserKey...
It will bring up a Menu with Special Routines...

Theses are:
Illegal Name:
Any String will be made into a Name
Store Number:
The Number will be used as the Name, Prefixed with a leaping dot.
Make The Tag into the Name:
Use the Tag as the Name,
If the Tag would make an Illegal Name,
it will be Made into an Illegal Name!
Purge Illegal Name:
Since Illegal Names are somewhat tricky to Purge,
this brings up All the Objects in the current directory--
On to a Choose Menu,
and you then select the Name that you want to Purge!
Save as a Unique Name:
This has the same functionality as if you'd only hit the access key once,
in case you accidently hit it twice!
If you only hit the Access Key once, or chose Save as a Unique Name from the Menu,
The program will Save whatever's on the stack as a unique name,

with a coded Prefix to give you some clue as to what the object is...
Such as a number, complex number, string, list or whatever...
Use the ones i've provided, or pick you're own prefixes...!
The Unique part of the name is a number in Alphabase! A-Z
It is incremented automatically; whenever Save is used.
There are also five subroutines that Save uses:

Changes an Algebraic or Name into a String,
or puts Double String Quotes around a String.

Makes an Illegal Name from any String.
This SysEval works on a gx... will it work on your 48...???

Converts ( Toggles ) Decimal to Alphabase Numbers.

Source for ->Abc's Alphabase Incrementing Number

Takes either a String, which is used to make an INPUT prompt,
or a Program which is Evaluated ( such as an INFORM or CHOOSE prompt )
The Prompt is presented if the access key is double clicked or ignored if not.

Program Listings:
Apparently: --!!!
This blog html interpreter will just not allow me to use certain characters in various combinations...???!!!
Such as backslashes & the more and less signs...!!!
It will just go crazy if i try to use them...???

Any time i'm timid about a character or characters,
i'll just put them in ( )'s and write out what i mean...!
This is the first time, pretty much,
that this Blogger has been this crazy with me...???

Recent Events... Early July 2005

Sleep Walking...
When i was 'little', i used to sleep walk from time to time, but then i apparently mostly outgrew it...
But there were two times that i distinctly recall sleeping walking:
One was when i was out at the lake, and my cousin [-p-] hit me on the head with a anchor that he was swinging, and right after that i seemed 'alright' but then when we got back up to the lodge, i 'took a nap' that lasted for about 12 hours... Curiously, no one seemed to be bothered or alarmed about this, except that in the evening, my dad 'woke me up' from where i was sleeping, and moved me over to a cot, where i 'woke up' the next morning.
How much was my IQ diminished by this event... ( ??? )
Then many years after this, when i was a street person, and the evening after i'd had my one and only 'Bigfoot' sighting, i'd looked all over for a good place to sleep that night, but finally settled on just laying down on the lawn near the library in some town, a few miles north of Olympia, Washington, or maybe it was a few miles south...???...Then sometime during that night, i 'woke up' when i stumbled over some railroad tracks...!!! i didn't know where i was, and became immediately aware that i didn't have my back-pack with me...!!!, so i wandered around in this strange, unfamiliar town for about an hour-- before i was able to relocate the library and my back-pack...! Since then; i've always slept inside my sleeping-bag, even on very warm nights...!
What is curious about this story, ( mostly -- i think ) is that the expert on sleepwalking says that sleep walking is NOT associated with 'Dreaming', since it doesn't occur when the person is exhibiting the classic dreaming brain-wave activity...! This sounds surprising doesn't it...!
i've had this theory about dreaming and Non-dreaming states for some time,
This theory suggests that when you are dreaming, you are traveling to distant places, through gawds sketch pad ( perhaps ) or some such, alternative fractional reality...
And-- When you are 'not dreamingg' you are lost in a realm of unreality, or a void of nothingness, and that the reason we've become 'incarnated' is to learn to navigate in this 'True Reality' while we are sleeping... Safely tucked away in a 'Solid' 3-D reality...! Eventually, we'll be able to stay in the true reality all the time, having learned to stay within the boundaries of 'Where Stuff Is'.
- - - - - - - - - - -
London SubWay Attacks
One of the things that most annoys me about 'Terrorist' Attacks, Is that --Afterwards-- Someone will announce that they are the ones that 'Did It' and neglect to mention why...!!!
It seems to me, and i may be the goofy one to consider this, but it seems to me, that if you're going to go to all the trouble of terrorizing someone, you should have in mind, some reason for doing so...??? Am i wrong here...???
So according to my personal basic guidelines for Introductory Terrorism;
You should always plan the attack out a week, or so, ahead of time, which will give you plenty of time to put a 'Coded Message' as a Want-Ad or Personal-Ad ( or some such ) in the local newspaper, So that afterwards, you can direct the local media's attention to this Item, and tell them how to 'Decrypt' it... This will give you the Authority to make demands in a perfectly unambiguous manner and so on.
Also; It appears that all the terrorist that we're dealing with these days, are so self assured with what they are doing, they mistakenly believe that everyone else is just as aware of their 'cause' as they are...!!!
You would think that after listening to El Presidente Bush rant on and on about how the terrorists 'Just hate Freedom', the actual terrorist would go out and hire a publicity firm to handle their 'Just Cause' for them... But apparently they've tied up all their investments in cheap, unreliable exploding belts & fliers for recruiting new members... Maybe they should send some of those fliers over here so that we can read about what it is that's so ticking them off... Most of us, ( Including Me! ) are pretty much in the dark, as to all the gentle specifics of why they are doing whatever it is they are doing...
-- All this Assumes...! that the 'Terrorists' are Not our own CIA or other group that is only interested in raising Oil Prices... If that were the case, then all this 'Ambiguity' would make all the sense in the world wouldn't it...??? ( !!! )
Another point that i'd like to make concerns the Analysis of this recent attack on London... Where the pundits are suggesting that the terrorists of these 4 attacks must have been very 'Sophisticated'...!!! And the reason that they give, is that all four blasts went off 'At about the same time!'...
Just how 'Bright' do you have to be to wear a watch...?
As you may already be aware, i have the most unlimited contempt for The Everyman, That Ordinary Homosapien that if s/he lived outside the confines of Western Civilization ( or it's equivalent ) would lack the ingenuity to squat while defecating.
As much as i occasionally overestimate the abilities of The Damp Masses ( i'm a Optimistic Pessimist* ), i'm wondering how wrong i could be, to disagree with these analysts, that are saying that are saying that the terrorist must have planed this 'Intricate bombing' Out weeks or months in advance, and had considerable overseas funding...?
i could easily imagine an idle group of teenagers, sitting around in a garage somewhere, tinkering together some reasonably powerful bombs made from kitchen cleaning supplies, using recipes found on the Internet, then deciding to use them, for no particular reason, ( the chief motivating force behind all actions taken by the damp masses ) to 'blow up some stuff'. Why they picked subways & a double-decker bus;
'Why Not' would be their well reasoned response.
The leader would pick a random time, and have them all write this down on the backs of their hands, so they wouldn't forget...
( is this the part that required the extensive 'Sophistication'...
Would ordinary, dim witted terrorists forget to remind their loafers to write down important information...??? )
And so on...
i think, as in the movies...!, it snips both ways...
If the villain in the movie is an imbecile, then the Hero looks all the smarter...
At least the Hero should to The Damp Masses...!
For me though, when the villain is an imbecile,
Why would British Intelligence send out their most prestigious secret agent ( 007 )...
Doesn't he have anything better to do...
( i'm referring to most of the Roger Moore; James Bond Films )
This same think applies to real life;
If it's clearly the case that our Police agencies are powerless to stop or substantially hinder the efforts of foreign and local Ner-do-wells, then it must be because their so darn Sophisticated...
Our Irish Bluecoats would look pretty incompetent if it turned out that the terrorists were just a bunch of moodcalves...!
A Pessimistic Optimist ( or should that be the other way 'round... ? ) is someone that expects the worst,
but is relatively accepting of things that go reasonable well, or are not; complete disasters.

Still in Hawai'i
i was perfectly ready to buy a ticket to SF on Tuesday, but when i got out to the Airport, the ticket agent told me that the 'Counter' ticket price was about 160$ more than the 'Internet' ticket price...! So i put it on hold.
It looks like i will have to buy a ticket online, or fly by standby...!
( But that's cheating-- Isn't it...!!! ( ? ) )
Also; i have this HUGE Owie on my right knee...!
( my latest theory on these, is that they are caused by the teeny tiny ANTS over here...! These Ants are much smaller than Mainland Ants, and i'm pretty sure that they inject somekind of POISON when they bite you, AND-- if you're especially sensitive to these particular toxins,
So much the better... For The Ants...!!! )
So i'm waiting for that to get a little bit better...
AND -- i'm still Terrified of how cold the nights on the mainland might be...
It's been awfully Cold Around Here...!!! in the mornings & evenings...!!!
Plus -- i just can't get up the energy to do anything lately...!
i think i'm loosing the ability to read...! i just can't focus on anything for more than a few minutes...
And all The News lately is so depressing.
The Damp Masses are just wearing me out... They just don't deserve my help.
i don't want to save them anymore.
In one of Kurt Vonnegut's books; Galapagos He ends the book, with the humans,
after several millions of years, de-evolved into a group of harmless seal like creatures.
Would it really be so bad if this really happened, and perhaps the soon we begin,
the better it will be for everyone of our lop-headed descendants. ( ? )

Chicken Salad Sandwich
Just this morning, i took a shower, washed out some things, tried to put a more effective bandage on my knee, and then i went over to Kapolei for breakfast, which consisted of a big fancy coffee, an egg, sausage & cheese biscuit-- & a Chicken Salad Sandwich... Which went right through me...
You may be thinking that it was the Cheese Biscuit that went right through me, taking everything else with it, but i think it was the Chicken Salad Sandwich. i've had those biscuits many times before, and without 'ill' effects... Plus; When i looked at the poop that splurted out, it was ALL FLOATING...! This means that it was pure FAT...! Most of the stuff i eat is not pure fat, but it seems to make perfect sense to me that this Chicken Salad Sandwich was made cheaply, by filling it full of delicious fat...!!! By some quirk of evolution, Humans have to genetically selected to crave FAT...! Maybe it makes sense somehow... But for some equally quirky reason, i can not digest this FAT...! It may have something to do with the time, The last time i was in Hawai'i, when i got somekind of Totally SuperDeluxe RadOut Food Poisoning... And i was Throwing up & Forcefully Squirting buckets of Liquid Poop out of my anus, Simultaneously... For about 6 hours, then another 3 or so hours of feeling miserable, then i felt fine. Fortunately, that night that i was sick, i'd managed to get myself locked into a ladies restroom on The University of Hawai'i's Campus.
( Angels do take care of us, in a typically back-handed, black-humored kind of way... ??? )
So that's why i can't eat greasy or oily meats, Cheese or White Rice...???
i can still eat peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, but these are seldom discarded at The Mall or along Waikiki Beach.

Best Phone Ringers
i was on the bus a few weeks ago, and had a VERY RARE conversation with someone... Scotty had exactly the same kind of phone that i had, and was playing 'Bounce'.
After a few minutes he showed a bunch of pictures of his kids,
on his cell phone's display, and played the ringer of his baby crying...!
i said 'How did you do that?' and he explained it to me.
What i find so curious about this, is that all the ringers that i've downloaded from the internet sites,
and i found it very surprising that it's possible to have a ringer that can reproduce any sound you want,
with reasonable audio fidelity...!
Here are some Good Possibilities...
Blood Curdling Scream
Crying Baby
( All these would be great on the Bus, or in an Elevator...??? )
Mewing Kitten
( or Favorite Animal )
Abusive Swearing
Cowardly Man Pleading for you to Answer the Damn Phone.
Gun Shots
Hacking Cough
Crazy Person Rant
