ESPN is airing sportscenter from a US military base in Kuwait this week to "support t**** They had this segment where they picked out an army guy and an airforce guy from the audience to argue about the yankees/red sox. One of the questions was would you rather drive a tank through the bronx or kuwait? The guy from the airforce who's a sox fan said something like "we dont have many tanks in the airforce, but id drop a few bombs on kuwait" Kenny mayne the anchor quickly said, "kuwait is friendly, probably wouldnt be a good idea." I cant believe this shit. dont people in the military know at least what countries they're at war against?

This whole Salute to the Troops thing on ESPN is kind of creepy, I think.</font>

They suck, they suck more than ever. I want them to fucking talk about sports and the games. I don't want to hear how someone sent the biscuit in the basket or cranked the ball like a tanker in the war or whatever the fuck language Stuart Scott and his cronies speak these days.

I miss Kilborn and Oberman and Patrick and Gumble ... guys who knew sports and talked like they knew them.

And this troops this is fucking stupid. It's all PR I guess, but why are they even there?

people in the military arent fucking whiners who sit up at night worrying if theyre hurting some semi-conscious gooks feelings or more importantly, if their neighbors are hurting semi-conscious gooks feelings..

to hell with the fuckin kuwaitis if we learn anything from the whole weapons-to-saddam-and-bin-laden-then-enemies-with-them issue it should be that all those foreigners are only coincidentally our allies. in arabia turning against america as a nation is just a trend like the macarena or trucker hats they dont have any real loyalty to us and ive got no use for them

Itís simple really. I was thinking about this yesterday, in far more detail, but simply:

The Human Race needs to evolve to the point where weíre bored and lazy. Factors like hunger or starvations, sickness, housing etc, will not be a problem anymore when we sort this economy shit out and everyone makes more money then they needs.
Once we reach this physical boundary, weíll need to focus on the mental, cause weíre quick learners as a species, and get bored easily, which is key to our survival.

Then our idle brains will need to focus on what it doesnít already control and comprehend. Leading to a mental focus, telepathic communication of emotions, sincere connection between minds, reality in fantastical thoughts, escapes, mental progression etc etc etc etc.

So when we fuck this world up beyond habitation and the desperate space relocation plans fail, weíll say, ĎHey, I donít need all this physical shit, itís all really in my mind, and I can hop on off any time I pleaseí

And thatís how we ensure our survival. And evolution is all about survival, so itís logical too.

And when we take that step, time and space (which you cant have without the other) will no longer limit us. And Aliens are really our own evolved selves, watching and monitoring ourselves in the present (but their present too) to make sure we basically stay on course, and learning more about ourselves by watching ourselves in that subjective manner.

War does not accomodate our evolution.

Duh.

im saying the highest ultimate goal in my life/ my dream for the world isnt that everyone everywhere have the leisure to live to be 65 and drive a nice car and spend 6 hours a day amusing themselves.. first off i dont care much about what other people do and second off id rather do something exciting or violent than just live like i was in a waiting room for dying old and fat.. even if the army isnt your thing i can tell u democrats let that energy out somehow, mostly by protesting.. everyones revolutionary chic now its so gross.. u guys ruined it for the cool rebels

Donít you want there to be a point to all of this?

HmmmÖ.

HowÖ Boring.

You just live to live.

And ten itís over.

Maybe in between youíll do something violent. Cool. Great.

And what I said is a little more complex then everyone having a nice car and house. Thatís just step one. And an understatement too.

Weíve tried the bashing each other over the head with rocks till you do as I say thing. It doesnít work.

Itís primal. Itís working against our big picture plans. Thereís no point. The world is beyond that now.

Sure, weíre animals. But your anger is distorted and unjustified when itís planned in such details and on such a scale.

Itís time to move on. War is stupid. Iíd think everyone could accept that by now, but thereís still things like homophobia and racism too, so who am I kidding?

As a race, weíre still pretty dumb. Which is disappointing. Iím kinda hoping weíll see some kind of evolutionary step within our lifetime. But, based on shit like this, Iím not so confident anymore.

the meaning of life is to find out the meaning of life.

once you know this, like i do, your life pretty much has no meaning anymore, because you found out the meaning and thus took away the meaning of your life. i just stay on because i don't really have anywhere else to go, and the party seems to be ok.

i wasn't even stoned when i thought about this....

You have a stupid idea of war in your head.

War seriously harms you and those around you. War contains lies, hypocrisy, greed, burning flesh and death.






Thatís a bit of a Radiohead thing. I donít know how accurate I got it to the original though, off my head.

"burning flesh" rofl makes it obvious its song lyrics
"lies" and "hypocrisy" i never said i cared about iraqi citizens freedom and if the president lies to the masses to shove a war down their throats i dotn care
"greed" ive got nothing to gain; if someone else does more power to them
"death" ns

I donít think itís a lyric, just something I found on a site.

Iím trying to say that war is a an ugly, bad thing, and even worse if you have to experience it subjectively.

Thereís no honour in being a pawn, or cannon fodder, or a hired thug.

Itís just, death, and killing, and destruction, and pain, and suffering.

Maybe you get to shoot some big guns and play with some fancy toysÖ

But manÖ Stay in school. Make a life for yourself, donít regret not taking a chance to kill others.

my dads dad was pretty much useless and insane since my dad was in kindergarten and his mom didnt have any kind of real job ever either
my dad raised himself up and built a life out of nothing and now has a PhD and a good job but is dying of cancer and his kids are all not as smart as him and definately wont wind up as financial successes in life and he has nothing to show for years of pietas and hard work and faith, and he told me although indirectly that he regretted not going career in the military after his 2 year tour in vietnam.

i just dont want to end up old and cancer-ridden with nothing to show for my life and surrounded by inferior peoples
