2 fries shy of a happy meal

"If only you could see what I've seen with your eyes..."

"Yes, I thought I'd be taller too, okay now, just relax, take a deep breath, and count backwards from infinity."

My favorite quotes:

"I live on Earth at present, and I don't know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of the universe. "

~Buckminster Fuller~

Second favorite quote:

Perhaps it is better in this present world of ours that a revolutionary idea or invention instead of being helped and patted, be hampered and ill-treated in its adolescence — by want of means, by selfish interest, pedantry, stupidity and ignorance; that it be attacked and stifled; that it pass through bitter trials and tribulations, through the heartless strife of commercial existence. So do we get our light. So all that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.

~Nikola Tesla~
...it's a nice sentiment but I'm not so sure I agree, I mean, look how that dude ended up.

I guess third favorite has to go to Aldous Huxley;

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. "Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does." They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.”

'struth that.

Ooh! A new one;

"If you have to be persuaded, reminded, pressured, lied to, incentivized, coerced, bullied, socially shamed, guilt tripped, threatened, punished and criminalized... If all of this is considered necessary to gain your compliance - you can be absolutely certain that what is being promoted is not in your best interest."

~Ian Watson~

My other profile page is imaginary... and it's way cooler than this one.
You have no idea.

seirfowt @ g mail dot com if anyone cares to talk.
twofries backwards since my Hotmail account got hacked.

My ten favorites in no particular order:

Bobble Hydra
World-Wave
Treethedral
Dolphin Language
Omnioculars
Fullerene fulgurites
Lines between the reading
Infinite Foyer
Gyroscillation
N.A.W.C.H.
adds Cymetchesketch
later adds Coanda Tornado
then adds Artificial Mirage Lens
and then Bolt-from-the-blew

I would never rob the Ooolongftangftangbank and to any and all of the Gaia fornicating fecal particulates it may concern...

...I very much exist.

Should that cease to be the case and I haven't stopped by in a long time you can get the gruesome details from my more significant other at cgilbert0202 AT hotmail dot com
