    Default And now...a moment of zen.


    Themistocles said his infant son ruled all Greece -- "Athens rules all Greece; I control Athens; my wife controls me; and my infant son controls her." Thus, nowadays the world is controlled by whoever buys advertising time on Dora the Explorer.


    Imagine the implications? Barack Obama is the "leader of the free world" and wields one large nuke stick in the grand scheme of things. He also commands a large force of military individuals and can sway the actions and words of other countries with this power. But, when it comes down to it, the one with the real power, that which can render all other powers impotent, is some engineer named Gary who put the button in place to begin with.


    Got root?
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!

    My favorite quote from a documentary about men manning
    the Nuclear silos during the cold war.
    "we all knew that setting the code wheels to all 0's would
    bypass the system lock for launch"
    "The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." --Thomas Jefferson
