We know we’ve slowed down posts recently and want to apologize. We’ve been mortified with the oil spill in the Gulf.

And now double mortified with a second BP oil spill in Alaska.

We like to say we know how to rank issues and the most immediate one is this sickening disaster. So in light of what’s happening to the Gulf, the coastlines, the fishermen there, and everyone’s economic well-being we want to share our ideology of an all out solution to this unchecked dependence that’s ruining our lives. And you know what? It fits right in with the 5th anniversary of the death of our good friend who suffered in her last moments as a cement truck knocked her off her bicycle, running her over on her way to work on June 3rd.

Our ideology for cutting oil dependence is to cut its use. Not the basic suggestions of turning your lights off but with a greater goal of limiting oil’s usage.

We dream of a future where cities are bicycle only. It takes us an hour to ride 30-miles on a bicycle. We understand cities aren’t all 30-miles in circumference, some are larger but you know what? We don’t want to die from an environmental disaster, from a cement truck, or from the aggravation of sitting in rush hour traffic on a fucking Saturday!  Right now, your drive to see the city for the weekend from you boring burb is an issue. Your drive to the grocery store, is an issue. Your daily commute to your job is… that’s right, an issue. You’re dependent beyond your control.

Stop letting these ass hat blue-bloods tell us how the economy and society are to work. Stop using their systems. The only way to fix this problem is with new, off the wall, sort of thinking. Cut vehicle traffic out of cities. Use bikes and public transit in cities. Get your groceries, go see your friends, go to work on a bike or train. No cars in the city unless for exceptions, like life or death situations and regulated construction routes. No cars in the city but do use them for great distances like a trip from Louisville to Nashville, NYC to Philadelphia, San Fran to LA…

We realize this is a crude ideology but we think it has a ring of solution to it. And now back to the Facebook monitoring program.

Soooo I forgot it was Friday and it was my turn to update this thing.
I failed. Faildog…

And to add to the WTF’ness – This is pretty pathetic too.

“Ooooh I have a novel idea honey! Let’s update our Facebook statuses AT the alter!”

This is how you know it’s gotten out of hand.

General Fail # 7: Tick Tock Tick Tock… Has It Loaded Yet?

On the topic of functionality today. Someone asked us earlier this week, why does it take so long to load certain items off the applications menu? We don’t know but we do agree. That shit is sloooow!


Share: Fine Print Shenanigans

Ahh comments we love.

We’re going to start harvesting your comments related to Facebook and other privacy issues – ONLY if they’re intelligent. Like this guy’s here:

“They [Facebook Inc.] didn’t make anything clear. Their “guidance,” from what I’ve seen, constitutes for some wordy legalese policy they expect everyday (non-lawyer) people to sit, read, and understand. It’s fine print shenanigans over at Facebook headquarters while they single-handedly change the definition of personal privacy for the worst. This has potential to affect everyone. Not just Facebook users.”

In response too this old timey story:

As far a comment harvesting and only choosing the intelligent comments: We may pick on the stupid ones too if only to dilute the trite amount of ignorance to life ratio there is out there.

ie… People who sound like this: “Ahhhh!!! I’m mad because everyone else is!!! But I really don’t know why!!! I’m so mad I’m going to join a group of other stupid angry people who are being manipulated by the ruling class to kill the progress that would benefit me!!! Making me angrier because there’s nothing there to help me!!!! Ahhhh!!!!”

Ef’ing vocally stupid people. They’re like cockroaches. Ugh.
