I've always found Stephen King novels to be thin as a whole, but I've always found a great deal of satisfaction in each individual sentence or idea. For instance, it's easy to dismiss "It" as a book about a scary clown, but the true purpose of the book is not walk away with applicable knowledge of how to defeat scary clowns. It's about a connection with the desires and fears of the characters, as is the case with all of his books, and the effect is executed with elegance. Each character says and does very rich and interesting things... within the construct of fighting a scary clown.

It's easy to preach nuclear non-proliferation while perched atop the most god-awful heap of nukes the world has ever seen.

"What, these old thing? These are just leftovers from the Cold War. They're still pointed at Russia, and Russia's dismantled for God's sake. It's not even fair to call them nuclear armaments, really. They're more like museum artifacts. Now... quit building nukes."

It's nice to be The World Police and all, but if we truly expect the world to buy us a Coke, we need to level the playing field through outrageous nuclear disarmament, which is never going to happen.

So, really... who are we to say, "America can, but Iran can't. Go democracy!"?

Sarah Palin may be burdened with the cross of a double-standard. She may be crucified by a media circus that hates her simply for being her. She may be unfairly categorized as a moron for her gaffes. She may very well have to endure the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Not one of these things alters the possibility of Sarah Palin being a lying douchebag moron.

Also, Sarah Palin is a lying douchebag moron.

"Dick wad" is so 1986.

Faith was not responsible for the plane crashes of September 11th, 2001; radical fanaticism was responsible for the plane crashes of September 11th, 2001. To suggest that global atheism would abolish radical fanaticism is to turn a blind eye to human nature. It's easy to blame religion for all of the bad things in the world (and there are plenty of instances in which it's true), but if maniacal destruction didn't happen in the name of religion, it would happen in the name of love, or money, or nation, or family, or good ol' fashioned vengeance. And, if you ask me, the plane crashes of September 11th, 2001 were about all of the above, with a little religion thrown in for good measure.

Whether or not there is a God or a god or a supreme being or a flying spaghetti monster, there is something to be said for a system of self-delusion that allows one to allay the fears of inevitable oblivion. I know many people who take comfort in the general theory of God, gods, higher beings, ghosts, afterlives and the such. Whether or not they believe with any intensity, it's nice for them to be able to say, "Maybe after I die, I get candy."

I often times wish that I had never abandoned my faith. Or that it had never abandoned me. Or whatever. True nothingness is as scary as Hell (literally) and the very idea of it bucks against every natural impulse of self-preservation. My parents believe that they will move on to a better place; I believe that I will be forever deactivated. Who's better off?

Not the healthiest if all possible choices.

LOLspeak is thinly-veiled illiteracy for halfwits who have been launched into a universe where communication is almost exclusively executed in writing, a medium in which they sputter and flounder but cannot be bothered to either improve or withstand criticism.

Lasting more than an hour, the Ninth was an exceptionally long symphony for its time. Like much of Beethoven's later music, his Ninth Symphony is demanding for all the performers, including the choir and soloists.
