Sleeveless October.

Tallulah Falls & Six Flags.

Let me say: amusement parks seem to involve a lot of walking in between spots of interest and then waiting, and then a few seconds of action.

Conclusion: Amusement Parks are a lot like Golf.

Tallulah Falls, day hike, and why I love GA:

Resentment

From Nightvale - The September Monologues

I hate Panic! at the Disco. I’ve never actually heard their music, so I don’t actually hate them so much as resent them. Or rather, resent what they stand for. Or rather, resent what I believe that they stand for. Or rather, resent my perception of other people’s projections of what they stand for. Or rather, myself.

I’ll have a large slice of employment, please (BSBTE)

Thomas Dalrymple responds to Paul Krugman Slice of Labour.


He concludes:



Mr Krugman’s argument is not the argument in favor of labor market rigidity as above, however. He is what one might call a slice-of-cake man, where an economy is a cake to be sliced rather than a dynamic organism to be nurtured, and where supply and demand can be managed without reference to price. There may be cruder economic ideas, but I don’t know what they are. He is also, of course, a proponent of ever-greater government stimuli to the economy. In this article, he quotes John Maynard Keynes on the dangerous influence of ideas. I wish he had quoted Keynes’ eloquent words on the effects, social, psychological and economic, on the debauchment of the currency.

Body Positivity unless you're skinny. Then ugh.

"Everyone’s body is perfect! Well, unless I think you’re too skinny. Then gross. Go eat a sandwich. You twig. Do you even eat?"

I'm imaginary and all my partners have been dogs. Plus, Julie Borowski raps.

Geek Greek Day

I was, for no reason of value, performing superficial research as to whether anybody celebrates a National or World Classics Day.

Instead I found something about cheer-leading championships.

That's exactly how we did it.

GIVE ME AN ASPIRATED OMICRON
GIVE ME A MU
GIVE ME AN ETA
GIVE ME A RHO
GIVE ME AN OMICRON
GIVE ME A SIGMA

WHAT'S THAT SPELL?
