I wonder why I didn’t get Level 6 if I had the same score. Oh, well.

The Dante’s Inferno Test has banished you to the Second Level of Hell!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:

Level Score
Purgatory (Repenting Believers) Very Low
Level 1 – Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers) Moderate
Level 2 (Lustful) Very High
Level 3 (Gluttonous) Moderate
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious) Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy) Low
Level 6 – The City of Dis (Heretics) Very High
Level 7 (Violent) Moderate
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers) High

WMDs?

 
 29 Apr 2003 @ 5:58 AM 

This article spills the beans from some anonymous administration insiders. They fess up that we were never all that sure of the WMD in Iraq, but wanted to make an example of someone to show that we were tough on terrorism. I picture Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor doing the, “We bad, that’s right” schtick. Here are some excerpts from the article:

All-Reality TV Channel Planned for 2004

Is there really anything I could possibly add to that headline? Yikes.

Finally one that isn’t completely lame…

  1. What was the last TV show you watched? John Doe
  2. What was the last thing you complained about? Probably the complete waste of a day at work today.
  3. Who was the last person you complimented and what did you say? Um, I said dinner was yummy, does that count?
  4. What was the last thing you threw away? The bottlecap to this cool Honey Brown beer.
  5. What was the last website you visited? Something to do with “how freaky are you”.

After discussions with a few people of varying political opinions and geopolitical experience, I think we’ve come up with a theory that fits the observed facts in Iraq vis a vis the search for weapons of mass destruction. First and foremost, let me say that evidence and proof are two vastly different things, with proof being hard to fake and evidence being pretty easy to muck up. For an example, see People v. Orenthal Simpson, 1994.

Let me lay out some things we have to take as givens in order to move forward:

  • Saddam is not an idiot. Anyone who can be a military and political strongman for over 20 years has a brain cell or two to rub together.
  • Nobody in their right mind thought the Iraqi military had a chance in hell of defeating the US military.
  • The US military has a great deal of evidence that Saddam had WMD and had plans to use them, including evidence that they were deployed in defense of Iraq this past month.
  • Nobody is sure where Saddam is.
  • The US has no actual verifiable proof of any current or recent WMD production or stockpiles. If they had proof, they’d be crowing from the rooftops.
  • Saddam had a lot of money and he may not have left it all for American soldiers to attempt to recreate bad movies with.

Now, with those items as a basis, we can make some interesting possibilities. The one that the current administration is betting on, because it won’t make them look stupid and/or hotheaded, is that there are chem and bio weapons and that some of the currently incarcerated Iraqi leadership coughs them up.

Here’s the possibility I came up with.

I’m wondering if this happens to anyone else, or if it’s just me. I know pretty much everyone experiences deja vu on occasion. The source of these feelings is not understood, but I like one explanation in particular: your mind has a kind of electrical storm that causes an experience to pause before being processed. This causes you to experience the same thing after it’s already happened, so you feel like it’s doubled, although you cannot pinpoint when you thought it had happened in the past.

Now, my particular variant doesn’t fit that theory very well.

Anyone who has children has naked pictures of their kids. They tend to tear off their clothing for no apparent reason when they are young, and they are cute as heck, right? So, if you were to get these pictures developed, would you expect to be arrested? Neither did Jacqueline Mercado.

Howard Dean is not a man I necessarily endorse politically, but his article in Common Dreams, Bush: It’s Not Just His Doctrine That’s Wrong, is a good look at how Bush’s administration is a bit off. Unlike much of political debate the past two years, it’s a well-written and calm essay. Not once does he claim that Bush is not the president, unlike the bombastic Michael Moore. He focuses entirely on the policy decisions, foreign and domestic, that Bush and his cabinet have made.

Just something that popped into my head while watching every other driver on the road ignore the stop sign on the way to work each morning, gaining all of 2 or 3 seconds over just stopping.

Apparently the Taliban are immortal, since some of that ousted and thoroughly destroyed regime are out there killing Italian tourists in Afghanistan. But I’m sure it’s an error since we all know that we completely destroyed that organization.

My Odd store hasn’t generated any interest yet, even though I think it’s a funny slogan.

Meanwhile, the kind folks at Cafepress have put out a new topical design – the military bear. Since many of my designs are military in nature, I figured it would be a good fit. So, get your camouflage Winged Ignorance bear today!

President bush says that Syria ‘needs to cooperate’. Great, just what we need – escalation.

We never really finished the job in Afghanistan (leaving the majority of the country in a near-anarchy of warlord leadership is not a good finish to a war). We haven’t even stopped fighting in Iraq. And now, Bush starts threatening Syria?

Meanwhile, the DPRK wants to talk and nobody will listen to them. The North Koreans definitely have chemical and bio weapons, and are bragging about how they want to join the Nuclear Club. Won’t someone please give Kim Jong Il a little attention?

Twice this week, the local radio station (one of those execrable Best of the 80s 90s and Today mutants) has played a song which is a cover of some 80s song that I never seem to remember until I get into work to write it down. This is one of those reasons why I wish I could bring my Clie to work in the secure facility – it has a voice recorder for these things.

Anyway, it sounds to me like Lisa Loeb is singing, and it’s a song from Erasure or some band from that era. Something that would have been on KROQ in 1986, for those that are from that particular milieu. Any help?

Friday Five!

  1. How many houses/apartments have you live in throughout your life? I’m going to say 23, but that includes barracks rooms (minus a couple that I was in for only a couple weeks) and I’m not 100% sure of the places I lived before 1976.
  2. Which was your favorite and why? The house in Sierra Vista. It was large and comfy and had a nice backyard for Alex to run around in.
  3. Do you find moving more exciting or stressful? Stressful
  4. What’s more important, location or price? You can’t separate them, because the price for a house in a nice neighborhood may be worth more than the same house in a poor neighborhood.
  5. What features does your dream house have? A library, a separate playroom for the boy, big kitchen with lots of cupboards and counters, big backyard, spare bedroom.
