^ Then you don't need the iPhone, Hal-Kun.

For the record, I'm not planning on getting one. I have a cell phone and pda but I like to keep them separate.

Then the iGasm gets invented... wait!?!?!?

No, seriously, there was a device called the iGasm that got shut down by Apple, citing 'use of coloured siloutes'

^On his recommendation/lock...

In case any of you wondered how some folks in San Fransisco, California, celebrated America's birthday, click below:

IMO, while I am not happy with the way the country's leadership is, well, not really leading, this stuff is really over the top! :?

Wow. San Francisco is crazy beyond all reason.
Why haven't they seceded from the USA yet?

'We are now secceding from the Earth Alliance!!!'

Sarchasm aside, they DO know that 4th of July extends before Bushwhackers terms?

Further more, if you hate your country so much, then move out. Nobody is going to stop you.

You misread my post: I was implying that anybody that lives in San Fan hates America so much, then they should indeed move out. Hope that clears it up.

Neither was Jefferson Davis. Secession isn't too well received by the government, you know.

I wouldn't talk too loudly about secession in the context of the 4th of July if I were you...

July 4th is the day that the descendents of the colonial rebels celebrate their temporary victory against the Hessian troops of His Late Majesty King George III.

Despite our long standing and rigid adherence to the Monarchy, and all that implies in the creation of a world that is right, just and proper, we have not been great admirers of the Hanoverians, so we cannot, deep in our hearts, blame such stout yeomen for what was, after all, a series of treacherous acts.

But now that Hanover is no more, and the course of time has moved us on to the House formerly known as Saxe Coburg Gotha, perhaps it is time for a rethink on this matter?

Everywhere I turn now it's Live Earth this and that and I don't care.
If I have no soul to touch, no heart to love, no evil to rise up above
No angels and no ghosts, no real victories to toast
If you believe that this is true then I must ask;
to what end do you proceed?

Yeah Kyle, I posted that already but no one cared.
He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."
