Dumbing down. Their doing it to the newspapers. Television is already a victim. Radio died a lifetime ago. The Internet will be next. They'll come one day, soon, with their scalpels. Full frontal lobotomy. What a way to go.

Why do I have to suffer a world of idiots?

These are strange days. I hope I'm old before I die. (Thank you Robbie Williams, you manipulative thief of a singer)

On a side note:
Why is good literature always about despair, hurt, loneliness, pain, cruelty, torture, defeat, animus and such else? Modern good literature in particular. Why do people have to die, fall ill, break, kill, rape, vomit and choke to get us all a good read? What happened to stories about happiness and honour? Heroism? Love even? I guess I need a change in library.

The good old days are gone it seems. More than seventy channels and nothing to watch. Comedy Central doesn't cut it these days. Cartoon Network even. And too many bloody commercials. TV needs a revolution.

Maybe they can have a reality show about viewer disillusionment with too many reality shows.

I want a British accent. Not because I want to sound fashionably British. Or because I want to impress people. No, the reason is much simpler than that. I want to be able to say "Bollicks!" without sounding funny.

For instance, you can say, "Be nice"
"My life is so miserable."
"I like whining. Please let me whine. I'm sad. Boo hoo."
At this point, I remove my Walther and ...

Or consider the following, you can say, "Hello"
"Hi there"
At this point, I remove my Walther and ...

Yesterday, I ate bite sized pretzels with a pizza flavored filling.

It's during thrilling moments like these that I begin to realize the grandeur of human civilization. Dinosaurs ruled the earth for millions of years, flying and leaping and tearing each other down. All they achieved was a hit movie with unknown actors and great special effects that spawned some boring sequels. Humans have been around a fraction of that time and just look at us. We invented nuclear fusion devices, lobotomy, the 80's and pizza. And then one pioneering inventor outdid himself and decided to invent, (Tada! Drumroll!) pizza flavored filling! This blog entry is my humble tribute to him.

I read about a revolution today. Nobody was freed. It's hard to reconcile this with a world of cola wars and XML.

And right about now this blog should be dying a natural death, what with all the indifference that it's had to live with. But for some reason, it refuses to die. Mighty nice of it though, as I got something to discuss.

Let's do some food analysis here. First some definitions. Convergent evolution is an evolutionary process in which organisms not closely related independently acquire some characteristic or characteristics in common. This usually reflects similar responses to similar environmental conditions. (Quoting directly from the excellent Can this also work out for cuisines? Specifically Indian and Mexican cuisine. Both are spicy enough. Mexican food has the flat breads. The rice and spicy sauces. So what gives? Convergent evolution? Hah! Mexico been secretly spying on India. All these years! And of course Korea had been doing the same to the Konkan coast. Lots of seafood and lots of spice!

Ah! So nice to get that of my back. Now I guess I'll go back to my attempt to murder this blog.
Another cold and boring day, spent watching dlls crash. (And crashing dlls was the fun part)

Update! It didn't crash! It didn't crash!
