Hey, [personal profile] silveradept? I did get your Christmas card. Thanks for thinking about me, guys. Hope you all are doing okay over there.

I think I heard tell that [personal profile] shenalia and [personal profile] ellixis are over in Germany at the moment. If so, you two stay safe, all right? And if this comes to blows against AAAA MOTHERLAND, good luck to the both of you.

Seriously?

Yeah, I'm not liking the way that Fox is advertising its new show:

-------------

"TONIGHT ON FOX: WE HEARD THAT THERE ARE GAY PEOPLE IN SITCOMS NOW, SO WE'RE HITTING BACK WITH ROBOTIC SEX TOY WOMEN STRAIGHT OUT OF 'THE STEPFORD WIVES.' OH, AND THERE'S SOME SCI-FI PLOT IN THERE, TOO, BUT WE KNOW WHAT YOU'RE HERE FOR. ANYWAY, IT'S THE SERIES PREMIERE OF 'NOT REALLY A PERSON,' WHICH WE THINK APPLIES TO FEMALES AS WELL AS ANDROIDS. TAKE THAT, PROGRESSIVISM! TONIGHT AT 9/8 CENTRAL."

-------------

...I realize that complaining about this just gives it more publicity that it shouldn't have, so I'm recommending that you not watch this crud to make up for it.

I stumbled upon this bit of the United States Code while browsing Reddit:

18 USC § 2384 – Seditious Conspiracy

“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

I don't know about you, but that "or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States" part sounds veeery familiar to me.

Work.

Every time I think I'm wasting my life brcause I can't get a better job than the one I have at the gas station, I remember that I'm doing more work than the high-paid shlubs down in Washington.

Anyone else here who thinks the Republicans have become a clear and present danger to national security?

At long last, I've jumped into the technology pool's deep end and gotten a Samsung Superphonefromthefuturewithlasers S4. Hopefully, this thing will help me remember to post here more often.

How is everyone?

Wow.

scribe_of_stars: LEAGUE COMMAND: "Fantasy Football" Redefined. (The nefarious Doctor Football!)
Peyton Manning--the former Mayflower Man--sought revenge against us tonight for our miraculous victory over the Broncos in January.

He succeeded overwhelmingly.

Broncos 49, Ravens 27. All those touchdowns (seven) came from Manning passes, by the way. That ties a League record not matched since 1969.

All you can say to that is "Well played."

So, I took one of my pills, forgot that I had taken it, and took another one. Quite by accident, to be sure, but I'm supposed to take only one per day.

This should prove interesting.
scribe_of_stars: LEAGUE COMMAND: "Fantasy Football" Redefined. (The nefarious Doctor Football!)
I love making up stuff for League Command, but I have to do that while keeping all of it internally consistent with itself. Chief among my problems is the matter of government. Does the League run everything in a given area directly, or does an infrastructure of civil authority exist to take care of everyday things? If the latter, how much sway does the League have over said infrastructure? Are civil officials elected or appointed? If elected, who elects them? Are they responsible for mustering the fan-militia in a crisis, or is the League?

Then, of course, my attention wanders elsewhere. Which is why League Command is so freaking sporadic. Bah.

If you want to hide from all the insanity being unleashed upon social media in the wake of the Zimmerman trial's not guilty verdict, take shelter in my blog. I have iced tea.

Edgar has a computer. He's keeping tabs on the situation for me. What's going on, Edgar?

Finally, something has gone right this week. Go Boston!
scribe_of_stars: Oh dear God, why would you DO that?! (Tails WUT.)
First we get assholes blowing up the Boston Marathon. Then more assholes keep trying to send poisoned letters to various officials. And NOW a fertilizer plant has exploded in Texas, an event which has to have killed dozens of people.

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON THIS WEEK?!

Mega Man Legends conditioned me to associate this music with an event that would wipe out human civilization. If things ever manage to go that far, I'll listen to this in the few moments I'll have before my demise.

In more positive news, I completed my taxes, my job search continues without much in the way of resolution, and I'm getting over some kind of allergy...virus...thing that I picked up earlier this week.
scribe_of_stars: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA (Weasel Flips the Fuck Out.)
I don't know what those Atomic Scientist people are doing, but they'd better set their Doomsday Clock forward about three or four minutes. Kim Jong-Un has turned the Korean Peninsula into a tinderbox, and while I understand that he wants to look like less of a pushover to his people and his military, one false step by anyone over there could start something really, really bad.

How is everyone? I keep forgetting to update this thing.

I'm going to need a new Ravens icon.

"Melanie, when I'm on the phone, the people I'm calling can hear you swearing in the background. I'm not trying to deny you your right to swear, but could you please keep it down so I can keep my phone calls professional?"

"Shit fuck bitches."

scribe_of_stars: This is serious post. (Serious Cat.)
Habent Papa--a guy named Jorge (awesome name) has taken the stage name "Francis I" (lame name, but at least we can call him "Frank I") and become the mortal leader of all Catholics. He's from Argentina, which makes him the first pope elected from outside of Europe in over a millennium.

He seems to have a bit of a sense of humor.
