“What’s really ironic is that, if someone claims to see a flying saucer, which hurts no one and costs nothing, debunkers come out in force. But let a former vice-president claim environmental apocalypse is upon us, and suddenly we’re appropriating billions and changing our lifestyles.”

Whenever a person argues that without this or that regulation to protect the consumer, the market will sell poison, I ask them why all the pot smokers aren’t dropping like flies? Last time I checked, the FDA doesn’t regulate weed production and quality control.

Quote of the Day for 27 December 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:30 PM (16:30)

Ron Paul Republicans, Tea Parties, Libertarians, anarcho-capitalists, take note . . .

“It would be a healthy exercise for every politician to look in the mirror every morning and remind himself that he holds office only because, in a two-man race against another mediocrity, a modest majority of those half-informed people who imagined that their votes mattered reckoned that he was the lesser evil. And they weren’t too sure about that.”

Joseph Sobran

“Which just goes to show that politicians are not heroes, bravely making those difficult decisions that will best benefit the people of this country, but simply grubby little snake-oil salesmen – hungry for adulation – who are only out for their own benefit at the expense of everyone else.”

What about online dating?

Filed under: Networking, Social Life — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:20 PM (18:20)

Current mood: dorky

Re: Have you ever tried online dating or considered it? Share your experience!

I have mixed thoughts and emotions about online dating.

Of course, there’s the obvious statement that “you’ve got to be careful about people you meet over the internet – after all, how do you know that they’re not a rapist or something?” Guess what, folks – that’s true of just about every dating venue that’s ever been devised since dating has existed, whether we’re talking about bars, parties, or high school dances.

The good thing about online date finding is that you and your prospective partner-to-be can exchange a lot of information about each other, and decide if you’ll be good for each other.

There’s a bad side to that level of information exchange, too, if your sweetie-to-be isn’t on the up-and-up with you, in that the person can use that information against you.

Most of my experiences have been OK – I’ve been burned a few times, and had some good times, too.

The one thing that I’d be leery of is paying for a dating site. A few years ago, I paid a pretty pile of FRNs (upwards of Ø1000 in 2003-2004) to various sites, with far and few returns. In my opinion, it’s best to stick to the no-charge sites like okcupid.com and plentyoffish.com.
