    Well, I dunno what better things he's up to, but beardo could not be bothered with his weekly staple.
    I'm new at this, so bear with me. I was going to raise the issue of inequity of viewable talent: why people pay so much to see talented athletes, and pay so much to buff talented artists (or, at least, pay so little to see the work of talented artists). But maybe I should just talk about tits.
    Anybody want to help me out filling in for the beard?

    first, of course no one can fill the beards shoes.
    second, we pay to see athletes because were fat and lazy. we watch porn because were fat and lazy. instead of doing the things that would make us happy, we go for the easy fix and try to purchase contentment.
    it doesnt work.
    we pay tons of money to buff talented artists because we're too fat and lazy to acknowledge the fact that we're just fat and lazy. we prefer to sit on the couch throwing quarters at the wound hoping it will fill the gash, instead of standing up and putting a bandaid over it.

    america likes to drink things back into shape.

    I think the idea or property and ownership is taken to new heights in american culture. Things we don't use or care about suddenly become important when someone else develops an interest in it. Look at the old spray paint thing on ebay, or antiques in general. Cans of paint selling for $500 is absurd. It works out nice for people like me that have lots of them, but I'd much rather trade it than cheapen it ethically by making money off collectors. I think it sucks when people do something strictly for money. Be in finding old cans of paint or playing football. You're cheating yourself.
    This is also applied to the freight rail system or unused buildings. Freight trains accumulate rust, road dirt, and decay like nothing else, and the only thing that will get the companies to repaint them is a writer painting a piece. What kind of mentality is that? It's a selfish mentality. "I'm not enjoying this piece of rolling stock, so you can't either." "Only I can emblazon this car with my corporate logo. You can't, because you didn't pay for it. It's not yours." It's a fucked up system. The competitive system amongst american companies, and american people in general is disgusting to me. It's like life is graded on a point scale and he who dies with the most possessions wins. I refuse to subscribe to that lifestyle.

    america seems to be painfully enduring life. rushing blindly towards uh...what?
    dont even really know.

    "in order to understand, it is immensely important for the person who understands to be located outside the object of his or her creative understanding- in time, in space, in culture. For one cannot even really see one's own exterior and comprehend it as a whole, and no mirrors or photographs can help; our real exterior can be seen and understood only by other people, because they are located outside us in space, and because they are others"
    yep its sunday night.

    we used to fly kites during kite flying season...the thing to do was get a glass bottle, crush it up into very small pieces, i mean crushed to a dust..dump the glass powder into a can of glue mix, and put your kite up..as you let the kite go higher you would dip your hand in the glue/glass mix and coat the string until you got to the end..

    after this you could fly your kite and let it up real high, and there was a move you could do by tugging your string, it would make your kite dive downwards, prehaps into the line of a kid from another neighborhoods kite..if you were lucky you cut his down, and if you werent, yours would get cut down.
