This would be a lot funnier if I didn't make copies for a living.

When does it all turn around?

"Because it's dragging me down,
Oh, I'd like to know about when -
When does it all turn around?"

Most seemingly senseless actions of human depravity are done with a motive - cui bono, who benefits? This references a mechanical or functionalist model: an apeal to Earthbound purpose. One may benefit at the cost of many (see: Capitalism), many may benefit at the cost of one (see: Christianity), but often there is no benefit (see: Murder/Suicide).

Conceived by man, forged by man, utilized by man. Gun control spotlights our laughable dichotomy. How about some self-control?

In addition to naturally self-serving inclination, Westerners have been inundated with a "look out for number one" mentality from birth. But who benefits? We establish and take part in games of influence. A pen in the hand of a politician, money in the hand of a CEO, a gun in the hand of a disgruntled student. POWERCONTROL. It's a construct, an illusion, a bold-faced lie.

LOVE is truth.

5-30 PostScript: Wallowing in self-defeat is not increasing the love.

Experience Planet Earth

While high definition television may be a few years from prevalence, programs like the Discovery Channel's Planet Earth are creating a path. This new 11-part series (started last Sunday) maximizes HD potential with brilliant, phenomenal, eye-rubbing footage of life on this planet. Sigourney Weaver narrates hour-long episodes, each focusing on a different geographical habitat (Desert, Mountain, Ocean, etc). Your world, like you've never seen it before.

The Planet Earth website has a lot of cool content -- worth checking out, and I'm going to go ahead and recommend the DVD for purchase. Everyone should see this (even Oprah says so).
