Crowded House drummer is dead. Doesn't bum me out particularly, but this is the only celebrity death thread.....

.................if there is one thing that confirms in my mind that the kind of religion that drives people that are this feverant about stupid stuff like the whole schaivo case is nothing short of a dangerous cancer on society that should be treated like any other mental disorder it's stuff like this. Seriously, life is sacred! We need to protect it by...killing people!

To keep this more on topic - I can see why Hunter killed himself, if I'd seen the zenith, the highpoint in change and freedom and lived to watch this decline I'd have blown my brains out too.

the only problem with that, jaguar, is that every generation is convinced that the highpoint was somewhere 1-2 generations back - you know the "good old days".

So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark -- the place where the wave finally broke and rolled back."
'65 IIRC. Maybe you're right lookout but I look around me, I look at the trends, hell, it's what I do and talk to those around me, it's just not pretty.

"'65 IIRC. Maybe you're right lookout but I look around me, I look at the trends, hell, it's what I do and talk to those around me, it's just not pretty," he typed on his high-speed-internet-enabled computer in her upper middle class flat, before draining the remainder of his chai tea and going to bed for 8 hours of slumber before getting up to go to his high-paying job. Ahh, the travails of the hunter-gatherer class.

I'm just kidding. Because I agree that things are getting generally more kooky and can look sort of depressing at times. I'm sure that our reasons for thinking so are on opposite poles, but anyway.

My point is, if you are reading this message, things could be worse.

her? his! Didn't think I came across that effeminate. I'm not talking about scientific progress or medical science, don't get me wrong, however if I got 8 hours sleep on a regluar basis I'd be jumping for joy. Nice flat wouldn't hurt either. Don't get me wrong, this isn't some kind of broad winge at the world in general, I guess what I'm waxing on about is a sense of social liberalism and forward momentum, nothing broader than that.

Gotta draw the line somewhere, timbuk2 messenger bags and zero halliburton briefcases are the only things I carry.

just messing with you all the way around. well, except for the bitchy, elitist, purse carrying part.

i'm in more of a "poke them with a stick" mood than a debating mood.
