November 9th, 2004



Gaming off last night, as Hugh was ill.  Ended up watching Hercules with Adam/Bekka and Ed, then I checked email while they watched the new BSG, which certainly _sounded_ good.  Finished off the night with some Super Monkeyball and Mario Kart action, being soundly beaten by Ed.

I _nearly_ made it to bed early enough, but hit a 241-post newsgroup discussion of Morrison's Seaguy and whether it worked as an allegory for the classic heroic quest.

Then I managed to sleep badly as well.


You gotta love them

There's a _wonderful_ diatribe at that's well worth reading, if only for the amusing stats.

Let’s talk about those values for a fucking minute. You and your Southern values can bite my ass because the blue states got the values over you fucking Real Americans every day of the goddamn week. Which state do you think has the lowest divorce rate you marriage-hyping dickwads? Well? Can you guess? It’s fucking Massachusetts, the fucking center of the gay marriage universe. Yes, that’s right, the state you love to tie around the neck of anyone to the left of Strom Thurmond has the lowest divorce rate in the fucking nation. Think that’s just some aberration? How about this: 9 of the 10 lowest divorce rates are fucking blue states, asshole, and most are in the Northeast, where our values suck so bad. And where are the highest divorce rates? Care to fucking guess? 10 of the top 10 are fucking red-ass we're-so-fucking-moral states. And while Nevada is the worst, the Bible Belt is doing its fucking part.
