Zeke, you can answer them all.

Here’s my responses, not that anyone asked:

1. It’s a frequent occurrence for me, knowing for sure I forgot something but not knowing what. The irony in the statement approaches perfection.
2. On my tumblr. This is my Deliverance in-the-woods selfie.
3. I have none. I consider scars as my tatts. Each is a reminder of pain I have endured and triumphed over. I have lots of scars.
4. Thinking about people/pets I love eventually dying.
5. No piercings.
6. U2. There are other favorites, but this is what came to mind first..
7. Assholes.
8. Stupid Ideas to Make a Top 5 List
9. None. I’m not big on decorating myself. You can do what you want.
10. Empathy. If you can feel what another person feels, you have what it takes.
11. I have lived just over 3 - 18 year long lifetimes.
12. Probably not having one. I think I’ve been on less than 10 dates in my life.
13. Seek and find the maximum amount of happiness.
14. None.
15. Married 27 years.
16. Tie between Caddyshack and Monty Python and The Holy Grail.
17. I’d do anything for you before I’d do the same thing for myself.
18. Rings and jewelry. People who wear a lot of this freak me to the core.
19. Patrick, which is the male form of my mom’s middle name.
20. If the past is immutable and the future full of possibilities, then what is now?

The Sacramento Bee:

Dire predictions about jobs being destroyed spread across California in 2012 as voters debated whether to enact the sales and, for those near the top of the income ladder, stiff income tax increases in Proposition 30. Million-dollar-plus earners face a 3 percentage-point increase on each additional dollar.

“It hurts small business and kills jobs,” warned the Sacramento Taxpayers Association, the National Federation of Independent Business/California, and Joel Fox, president of the Small Business Action Committee.

So what happened after voters approved the tax increases, which took effect at the start of 2013?

Last year California added 410,418 jobs, an increase of 2.8 percent over 2012, significantly better than the 1.8 percent national increase in jobs.

For all you semanticists out there, taxing the rich was a JOB CREATOR. Or in other words, letting the rich keep more of their money was a job killer.

Suck it, right-wing noise machine.

Never forget the largest systematic genocide in human history. America hasn’t had its hands clean since the beginning, and people wonder why greed still runs politics.

NASA 360: 
45 years ago Neil Armstrong took that small step onto the surface of our moon forever changing the course of history. Now, NASA is on a new Path to Mars. 
In fact, the first humans who will step foot on Mars are already walking the Earth today.


And 39 years ago man last set foot on the moon. It took 8 years from the first American in space to a man setting foot on the moon. When Bush II announced returning to the moon (as part of going to Mars), it was estimated that it would take 15 years to get there…despite having gone there before and now having better *everything* to get us up and out there.The first people on Mars will not be NASA astronauts.
