A Wise Old Man
A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time. So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he was, walking slowly up to the holy site. She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a cane and moving very slowly, she approached him for...

More SOPA Ranting
So when did the Unites States government decide that interfering in the affairs of the users of the internet was “okay” as long as they were doing something that took minute amounts of profit away from the corporations? It would seem that this era is one of lessening mental clarity or more government corruption because many years ago, a government controlled internet was...
Now I am not saying that I support the pirating of entertainment, but what I am saying is I am against undue restrictions on the public.
Bills such as #SOPA and PIPA only stand to further degrade the integrity of what the internet should stand for by placing limits on it.
The internet is not the domain of any nation to be limited, but rather, a way for all nations to express free thought and exchange ideas.
After the DMCA, we do not nee more anti-pirating legislation that allows for more meddling in the affairs of those on the internet.
But rather than black out the social media sites, why not use today to express outrage against these awful pieces of legislation?
I've even changed my profile pic to support the #StopSOPA movement. I believe its an atrocity that can do no ordinary people good.
So now begins a day of blackouts to show the opinions of the people against the horrid #SOPA
Well I just found my new home for the next few months. Everything is just so hilarious here. Not to trod on the religious, of course.
Me: Am I free to assemble a protest of peaceful peers?
Government: Only with a permit.
Me: Am I free to travel?
Government: Only with a passport.
Me: Am I free to pursue my own ideas of happiness?
Government: Only within these constraints.
Me: Am I free to start a business?
Government: Only with a license.
Me: Am I free to marry who I wish?
Government: Only with my consent.
Me: Am I free?
Government: I'm legally obligated to say that you are.
Government: Stop asking so many questions.
Today seems to be one of those days where everyone isn’t in the greatest moods for their own reasons. Not exactly the best clime for work or getting things done. Seems to be the theme for my week so far. Slow, sad, and unproductive. Maybe it is something about the weather, because that has been quite depressing as well. Humidity, then rain and cold. Blech. Not looking to end this week well.
Wait what time is it?
Well after figuring out the miracle of Spotify yesterday, I seem to have completely lost an afternoon and evening today heheh. I’m pretty sure there was homework to do here, but meh. Arctic Monkeys, Andrew Jackson Jihad and Sufjan Stephens seemed more important today. (Read: Kaiser is now waiting until late in the evening to do his homework. AGAIN >__<)
MMO Fever Setting In
So I’m sure most of you guys know about Star Wars: The Old Republic, but if not its the new MMO by Bioware based off the Old Republic era of Star Wars Lore (My FAVORITE time period btw) and it is absolutely brilliant. I really do like the races and classes here and the similarites, and major differences, from my old MMO WoW. I can now be either a swaggering Twi’lek smuggler (Dead Sexy...
Heheh that is quite funny. →
File Sharing now an Official Religion of Sweden. →
Well maybe I shouldn’t use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V so lightly then. And to think of all those times that I was doing something sacrilegious before it was even a real religion. Does that make me a Heresy Hipster?
Allrighty this tumblr business seems quite to my liking. Its a bit of a blog-like site, but I could get used to these longer post types. Many, many options to mess with as well so this could take a bit of adjusting. But I shall make sure to update my other sites so that maybe I won’t be talking to no one here! :D
