hell's kitten

signs

More about Signs.
While watching the movie, i SWEAR there were white flashing lights under the whole row of seats in front of me. I dont know what the hell they were...but...it was weird...

hell's kitten

what if....

"Think of the Internet as a highway."

There it is again. Some clueless fool talking about the "Information Superhighway." They don't know didley about the net. It's nothing like a superhighway. That's a rotten metaphor.

Suppose the metaphor ran in the other direction. Suppose the highways were like the net...

A highway hundreds of lanes wide. Most with pitfalls for potholes. Privately operated bridges and overpasses. No highway patrol. A couple of rent-a-cops on bicycles with broken whistles. 500 member vigilante posses with nuclear weapons. A minimum of 237 on ramps at every intersection.

No signs. Wanna get to Ensenada? Holler out the window at a passing truck to ask directions. Ad hoc traffic laws. Some lanes would vote to make use by a single-occupant- vehicle a capital offense on Monday through Friday between 7:00 and 9:00. Other lanes would just shoot you without a trial for talking on a car phone.

AOL would be a giant diesel-smoking bus with hundreds of ebola victims on board throwing dead wombats and rotten cabbage at the other cars, most of which have been assembled at home from kits. Some are built around 2.5 horsepower lawnmower engines with a top speed of nine miles an hour. Others burn nitrogylcerin and idle at 120.

No license plates. World War II bomber nose art instead. Terrifying paintings of huge teeth or vampire eagles. Bumper mounted machine guns. Flip somebody the finger on this highway and get a white phosphorus grenade up your tailpipe. Flatbed trucks cruise around with anti- aircraft missile batteries to shoot down the traffic helicopter. Little kids on tricycles with squirtguns filled with hydrochloric acid switch lanes without warning.

No offramps. None.

I didn't write that. I just had to post it here.

Yay me! I just convinced my mom to let me preorder IDR! :-D She said no at first, "it's not safe" but I convinced her. I can't order from freshfitz, I have to from amazon, but that's fine. I may not get it the day it comes out, but I do save a few bucks. She's still hesitant about it, though

Who knows how to help me convince my mom that ordering on the internet isn't as dangerous as she thinks it is?

Hmm...I found a profile belonging to the guitarist/vocalist of an up-and-coming rock band named Phyxius. He seems to be obsessed with creed, and likes tantric, pod, down etc... greeeeeeat.

Fuck! Out of nowhere, my left foot starts hurting like a bitch and I cant walk on it.
