from the quick-jotting-dept.

just a quick mention here that i saw my first bright shiney extravagant UFO last night with my wife

it was dark in a public place

it looked like blue & red lights; i noticed myself being elated and vying between just experiencing it (collecting data), trying to categorize its shape (which i failed at) and trying to define it (which i was constantly doing)

and it moved around

there were witnesses

i will post the video when i can :3

i was so EXCITED!!! it's good to know that i've gotten over my childhood fear of them :3

the sighting was at Delta Park in Portland, OR @23:11

too bad we were in a rush to catch a bus :3

"I am of a sect by myself," Jefferson once said, "as far as I know."

All of us here are in a sect by ourselves, whether we practice onieromancy, marxism, capitalism, nihilism, ismism, postmodernism, gaiaism, HAARPism, wasabiism, whichever...

Wishing you all an interesting holy daze season. May universe continue to shower you with Hir blessings and gifts.

Imagine what could have happened if Moses had not stopped at the burning bush, if Joseph Smith had not taken literally his experiences, if Madame Blavatsky had really questioned the Masters, and so forth?

universe a hypothesis made for testing out further hypotheses? You and I being experiments?

from the Build-your-Own-Apocalypse-Dept.

Collected sentients. Tired of those folks having all the fun, wearing their hair-shirts and Placards of Doom? Well now, with the help of your computer, your ability to write, and your imagination, you TOO can build your own Apocalypse!

I'll start, but don't feel limited by what I write -- the only 'rule' I posit here is something from Improv Acting -- no blocking. In that, simply, you can't say that something just didn't happen -- if, ferinstance, you don't want Obama begging for his life, write something aboot a faked news report or misleading news report and Obama is _________.

Otherwise, anything goes :3 You can even start introducing other realities/universes if you want :3

The only limit (asides from above) is your imagination. Let it run wild!

Rebels Reach Heart of Washington DC

Live Updates: Regime Clearly Collapsing

Cheny, Rumsfeld, Bernanke, Wolfowitz, Bush Jr & Sr et al arrested and slated for Ritual Human Sacrifice by fatal tractor pull.

White House in flames. The Peoples Liberation Front of the Unborn occupying the Lincoln Memorial. The Leftist Voice of Metatron (nickname: Grammar Nazis) occupying the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Food being provided by the JREF. Media coverage by CSI and the Temple of the Holy Blaspheme.

JHVH appeared for a brief Planck-moment over DC and looked worried that all of his worshippers started going up like roman candles.

Jesus moved faster than the flash, saving as many as He could, while being careful of ripping a hole in the S-T fabric.

The world's first sentient AI, Nermal, achieves this vaunted state...then immediately teleports to Mars where it begins teaching some humans how to solve NP vs. P problems.

I can't recommend the show History Bites enough -- it makes History what it should be, F U N.

One of the members of the team helps make a show that is quite popular in that Southern British Colony, the US.

Oh, and Canadian politics are easy to understand if you at least understand the US -- everything in Canada, even our most conservative party, is "left" of any party in the US.

We obsess aboot different things as well. Like IP rights is a big one. We don't obsess aboot religion. We do, unfortunately, obsess aboot our big and louder sister to the South and we do tend to define ourselves by going "We're not American", which is a shame. We aren't afraid of 'socialism' and we 'invented' Peace Keeping (though, lately, I think that is going down the tubes...) Canada is run like a business and every federal election, the fed gov't CEASES TO EXIST :3

80% of our imports go to the US and the #1 supplier of oil to the US is Canada. Both the US & Canada's histories are lovingly entwined.
