La locura de la vida que sigue.

The craziness of life that follows...

If you ever have a bad day, week or maybe even year it is good to know that we have at least (5), Five count it Five ways to keep our life in check.

Some things in life just plain and outright 'blow chunks', (as the operative phrase may be), like this quoted from here:

"New legislation signed on May 9, 2007, declares that in the event of a “catastrophic event”, the President can take total control over the government and the country, bypassing all other levels of government at the state, federal, local, territorial and tribal levels, and thus ensuring total unprecedented dictatorial power."

But on the lighter side, as of this posting... it will be a high of 73° F in Phoenix, AZ.
And for all of us in the Frigid North, we can dream... Just not while Driving!!!
I know some of you are checking this on your phones, (leave it to technology...).

Speaking of Tech!
Many of the people I know have a Second Life, yes the game. To be honest it is free to join but pretty much everything else will cost you. That said, it is probably one of the best game platforms to come out at the beginning of the 21st Century, and certainly is growing. It is so similar to real life its virtual money is actually physically tradeable and really as code goes your knowledge is the limit.
What is interesting though is how real it is getting, seems we can't get away from corporate interests if we tried.
Look over there, that is the WIRED News Head Quarters, and out in the ocean, that Island is owned by Reuters. and over the Way is an exact replica of CNET Networks San Fransisco Headquarters.
Yet wait, this is a game...

And games we play, and challenges we take and I wish we had more moments like these in our life. Because to be totally sane about things is not normal and well just plain boring.

Yet in the end...
