Told You So

So, it turns out LiLo is going to be released from rehab early.

Why, you may ask?

Because the doctors have figured out she wasn't addicted to anything, but was simply bi-polar and bi-polar isn't really helped by substance abuse treatment programs.

The fact that she hadn't screwed up a piss test in two years might have been a clue that this was the case.

I'm guessing that once she's out we'll find out that the basic deal was she was doing adderal during the down cycle of her bi-polar times and the opiates during the up times to even out.

So, yeah, all the drug rumors about her - all because she had a shitty doctor who could not diagnose her bi-polar disorder.

Taking Heed

Been playing Rock Band Green Day all afternoon and now have the lyrics to "She" particularly "scream at me until my ears bleed, I'm taking heed just for you" stuck in my brain.

Also, just now realized what a ridiculously romantic song that is if you listen to it the right way:

She...
She screams in silence
A sullen riot penetrating through her mind
Wai-ting for a sign
To smash the silence with the brick of self-control

Are you locked up in a world
That's been planned out for you?
Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?

Scream at me until my ears bleed
I'm taking heed just for you

She...
She's figured out
All her doubts were someone else's point of view
Wa-king up this time
To smash the silence with the brick of self-control

Are you locked up in a world
That's been planned out for you?
Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?

Scream at me until my ears bleed
I'm taking heed just for you

EHHHHHH, AHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Are you locked up in a world
That's been planned out for you?
Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?

Scream at me until my ears bleed
I'm taking heed just for you

What's Your Crazy?

I have a theory about why there are so many conspiracy theories online - it's because everyone has one conspiracy theory they sorta believe in - they just don't talk about it because they know people will think they are crazy.

So, let's put out a challenge. I'll tell you mine - and I know many of you will think I'm a weirdo for thinking it - and then you tell me yours.

As long as we all throw something out there ain't no way we can judge each other.

Here's mine: I'm not convinced about Global Warming/Climate Change. I just don't think there is enough accurate data. We've only been taking records of temperature for a short period of time and for a lot of that time we were using mercury thermometers which are not that accurate.

And, who the fuck knows how careful people were about recording the temperature in 1908?

Plus, I think the Earth just changes temperatures on its own every so often and it's a little bit egotistical to think we have that much of an effect on it. Face it, fucking ice ages happened before we were wandering around.

Even if it is true, so what? If burning oil and gas fucks up the climate it won't be for long because pretty soon there won't be any more oil left to burn and things will go back to normal.

It all sort or reminds me of when I was a kid and everyone was worried about the ozone layer and then nothing happened. And in the 70s with the Swine Flu panic that went nowhere. And the Swine Flu panic last year that went nowhere.

Now, I don't think that people trumping climate change are malicious. In fact I think scaring the crap out of people about climate change is a really fucking good idea because eventually we are going to need things to power cars, trucks and airplanes that are not created by oil, so anything we can do to motivate people to create non oil based machines is a great idea. Start now and they'll be perfect by the time we really need them.

Plus, starting to switch over to them now means the amount of oil that does exist in the world will last longer, giving us more time to develop really awesome cars that run on water or honey or corn or whatever.

So, my crazy is that I think climate change is a silly myth, but a beneficial silly myth.

What's yours?

Tell me.

I won't judge you at all.

I respect crazy.
