I'm in the opposite camp - being the cynic that I am.

I'm delightfully surprised when I encounter people that aren't outrageously stupid!

Well, yes I am the same way. It's always like, "where have you been my entire life?" I know the world is full of dipshits, but I guess what surprises me so much is why people do what they do sometimes (and the extremes they go to). Seriously, I just want to say, "what the fuck possessed you to do that? Why did that seem like a good idea to begin with?"

After I would hypothetically say that, I would then hypothetically beat their dumbfuck face(s) into a pulp.

Sorry, but going with theme of recent comments, I would like submit the lyrics to Aenima by Tool. Enjoy!

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks



Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.



Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car.



It's a
Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks



Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.



Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits.



Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this



Silly shit, stupid shit...


One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.



Learn to swim.


Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be.



Learn to swim.


Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
Fuck all his clones.


Fuck all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes.



Learn to swim.


Fuck retro anything.
Fuck your tattoos.


Fuck all you junkies and
Fuck your short memory.



Learn to swim.


Fuck smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas.


Fuck these dysfunctional,
Insecure actresses.



Learn to swim.


Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.


Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna watch it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.



Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.



I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it all come down.


suck it down.
flush it down.

Well damn nation! If a doctor sets you up with a 3:00 appointment and you get your snot nosed kid in to actually see the doctor at 4:00 for 10 minutes, I think he can lose a couple!

Seriously though, I hate when doctors blame the patients for "demanding" antibiotics. What does the doctor do when they demand oxycontin or a leg amputation for persistent planter warts?

I'd also like to say, that I am heartened to see that we are the general public and we do seem to be thinkers. Doesn't that make you feel better?

The demand for Oxycontin here is so high that prescriptions for it are cross referenced by patient name in a database accessed by licensed pharmacists before filling any prescription for it or other serious pain killers. I've read of six different prescriptions being obtained from different MDs in a single day. Street price is $1/mg, which drives people seeking it for resale to devise some unusual schemes in attempting to obtain it. Burglaries? First places they hit are medicine cabinets, bedside tables and kitchen cupboards near the water.

Amputations? No idea what that demand level is.

The general public as thinkers. There's a novel idea. Between reality shows or before the game comes on?
