LSD: Why it is so useful, and…problematic.

                          Two words explain both: disrupted associations. I don’t know if expanding on this will make this more clear or just as unintelligible, but the central effect of LSD is to disrupt the pre-defined connections, or meanings, or references, between all known...

Hey stupid – Juxtapose – “your” WiFi experience with “your” in-your-face reality!

                                      “Stupid” as in, “It’s the environment stupid.” First of all, this is about a New York Times, Business Day, June 7, 2012 article, but it’s a subject that could be written by anyone at anytime (no offence,...

Terrorism On The Highway

Terrorism On The Highway Law enforcement and state governments failed the citizens of this country (U.S.) long before September, 11, 2001, as regards thwarting death and destruction in the name of self-assertive, self righteous behavior. With all due respect to the many throughout history who have died at the hands of those who terrorize,...

All we are saying is give no war a chance!

At the very end of every Billy Joel concert I’ve seen, just as he leaves the stage for good, he throws a comment into the microphone, quick as a sucker punch* - ”Don’t take shit from no one.” I first assumed it represented a reaction to the tough life of performing, and/or advice from the “fatherly” side...

Hey, quick, new generation – what does “authentic” mean?

I grabbed this photo off the web, thanks to “asterisktom’s photostream” on Flickr. The heading states: 1967 or 1968, lower east side, Manhattan. I remember those days, and as time goes on the memories have taken on new meaning. Not just, oh what do you call it, melancholy or sadness for an era gone (for...

“What happens to full-time RVers when they cannot take care of their own or their spouse’s needs following an illness, injury, surgery, or the progression of a long-term health situation?”

“What happens to full-time RVers when they cannot take care of their own or their spouse’s needs following an illness, injury, surgery, or the progression of a long-term health situation?”

CARE answers the question. Escapees CARE Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (tax-exempt) corporation formed in 1992 and is under the guidance of a volunteer board of directors. Friends may offer to help, not realizing that a “little help” will become a need for extensive help with no end in sight. Is it fair to...

CAN SAVE THE WORLD – NOT Social networking – I recently (July 5, 2011) received an email purportedly from the CEO of friendster.com, announcing the sites new purpose in life now that others have taken over the social network business. One line states: “Friendster pioneered social networking…” I don’t know about that, really I...

What I Don’t Understand, Is What God Is: eyesight, vacuum, and time.

I mean this literally – MY GOD IS: vacuum, time, and eyesight, as in sensate experience. God is what I don’t understand. I am not one of those who can say, “I know what God is.” I believe there are people who do feel they know God, and I can not address what someone...

    Spoiler Notice! I haven’t seen this film, so I haven’t a clue what it’s about, other than what I see here in this promo – so, be forewarned, I have definite opinions that relate to almost nothing contained in this movie. You’ve been warned. I have been warned – my fate is...

How to cheat in testing drugs, or in reporting on energy and the environment: Play the curve…

In medical research the game of chance can be illustrated when comparing the (so-called) placebo effect with the normal cycle of disease. That is, if you run a test long enough, a positive placebo effect will most often line up with feeling OK in the normal progression of a disease – some days you feel better...

iGhetto: the new ghetto.

  – An isolated place where people are segregated from the aristocracy or upper classes. That pretty much sums up the origin of the word, ghetto. As to motivations for creating or allowing ghettos to exist, one could argue political, social, and economic incentives – keep the undesirables under control, out of sight, and create economic dependencies either...

Halloween: Trick or Mystery?

“I don’t know about you, but…” Well of course I don’t know about you, but as for me, I could easily trade Halloween in for another celebration, call it, “Mystery Day.”  I like a fun day, as much as you perhaps, but as for me, Halloween has outlived its usefulness, contributing at least as...
