HYPERSPACEDThe speed of light is invariably, when not warped by a gravity well, 186,282.4 miles per second. It is a universal constant, represented by C in Einstein's famous E = mc2. That said, changing the vibratory state of space can open the possibility for faster than light travel. In theory, that would explain some previously unexplained UFO activity. I can't prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt, but in a universe filled with planets not unlike Earth, it seems ridiculous to me that other civilizations aren't using FTL to get around, even visiting this one, laughing as they might at how we haven't yet blown ourselves into oblivion with the attitudes we have toward one another, let alone other species we've helped wipe out over the past few thousand years. And before you say, what's he smokin', keep in mind I don't as I have asthma. That said, I'd go for some "funny" brownies. =O)
While we're on the subject of the physical and of numbers, The Bible is a guide to spirituality, not a textbook. The earth is 4.54 ± 0.05 billion years old, not 5 thousand. I've got jokes that old.
ARE WE LIVING IN A MAD MEN EPISODE?It's 2014...at least that's what the computer calendar says...and yet women are still getting 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same job (and often better) as men? Is this the United States or are we in Pakistan? "When women succeed, America succeeds!" - President Obama, State Of The Union 2014
GRIMM AND BEAR ITThe same politicians who complain about poor people being "takers" and being in an "entitlement" culture are, ironically enough, the ones who believe they are entitled to bully or threaten others. Witness: Rep. Grimm of New York, who, by threatening a reporter asking a valid question about questionable campaign financing, is the very definition of a thug.
PEACH INSPEDIMENTGotta love that the same geniuses who preach "impeach" of the POTUS believe that it involves flinging peaches at their perceived enemy, which is a step up from their usual flinging of their poo at people.
I have noticed, when certain politicians in a debate have nothing of substance or logic to say, will start interrupting their opponent with prattle, accusations, name calling, and general stupidity. Right, Michele Bachmann?
BALLS TO THE WALLS?Confused-us say: Balls to walls not easy when stomach get in way.
FLY ME TO THE MOON, LET ME SAIL AMONG THE SCARSI wonder if the moon is mooning us for landing on its butt. I mean, look at it. It's a bunch of craters and bumps. If anything, it's not a female moon.
That just about does it, donut.
Have an awesome week....and be cool, be nobody's fool & don't dismiss the bliss.

Some folks say I only wanted to make films to get rich. At one time, about 20 years ago when I began screenwriting, I did have dreams of grandeur. But that was 20 years ago. I have learned over the years, especially after nearly dying in 2002 from pursuing a movie deal that eventually brought me into homelessness that pursuing the evil that is wealth is an exercise not only in futility, but an affront to the arts. Creating isn't about that at all, it's about translating a gift of expression for the benefit of others. Now that I'm at the twilight of my life I can't imagine why people walk all over each other in the pursuit of something so fleeting as wealth. When I see that 85 people control the same wealth as half the planet's population, I realize that evil has just about taken over what's left of civilization. The pursuit of riches removes our civility and creates a slave state that will crumble under its own weight, its own hubris, its own avarice. Hubris, Avarice, Tyranny, Evil. What do those words spell? HATE. No thanks. I'd rather be poor and dying then rich and exploiting my fellow beings.
