- Carl Fink
I dreamed a dream where there was only one. No stupid imposters of pure Fink-ish blood. But then reality hit me like a plane. As I saw Carl, life's one true pain.

This is your great winter romance, isn't it? Your last roar of passion before you settle into your emeritus years. Is that what's left for me? Is that my share? She gets the winter passion, and I get the dotage? What am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to sit at home knitting and purling while you slink back like some penitent drunk? I'm your wife, damn it. And if you can't work up a whit of passion for me, the least I require is respect and allegiance. I hurt. Don't you understand that?

Medium? Why, sir, do you not know that for a mere 25 cents more you can purchase a large beverage? And you know, I'm only telling you this because we're such good friends. Medium is really only for suckers who don't know the concept of value.
In the next world war, in a jackknifed juggernaut, I am born again. In the neon sign, scrolling up and down, I am born again. In an interstellar burst, I am back to save the universe. In a deep, deep sleep of the innocent, I am born again. In a fast German car, I'm amazed that I survived; an airbag saved my life. In an interstellar burst, I am back to save the universe.

Been on another level since you came, no more pain You look into my eyes, you can't recognize my face You're in my world now, you can stay, you can stay But you belong to me, ooh, you belong to me.

They weren't kidding when they said that you go through a quarter-life crisis. Who knew that after you gradate college and have to get a real job and be a real adult life would be so hard. It's all paying taxes, living paycheck to paycheck. Crying over childhood trauma and nursing a bottle of wine at 2 AM. I'm trying to be the best version of me and utterly failing. I feel like it's not supposed to be this difficult.
Statutory damages for copyright violations are absurd and defeat the purpose of copyright. Rather than protecting artists, it prevents them from producing art to begin with for fear of being sued for a coincidental similarity to existing works.
- Life Matters
Everything that you thought had meaning: every hope, dream, or moment of happiness. None of it matters as you lie bleeding out on the battlefield. None of it changes what a speeding rock does to a body, we all die. But does that mean our lives are meaningless? Does that mean that there was no point in our being born? Would you say that of our slain comrades? What about their lives? Were they meaningless?... They were not! Their memory serves as an example to us all!

- The Perfect Butt
I was walking back to my dorm room after my afternoon class and I passed a woman, I looked back (as one does) and was blown away. She wasn't really wearing anything special but the way her off white-semi-ripped jeans embraced her delightfully round bottom made me stare. I wanted to reach out and feel the sweetness of her body, touch her all over, especially on her bottom. But, I had a paper to write so I kept walking, drooling over what I had just witnessed.
- My Feelings
Well, I'm in college now and I don't know what to think. All I know is that I am not having a good time. I don't like any of my classes, and quite frankly I am bored and kind of miserable. I don't know if this is how everyone feels in college or if it is just at this college. And thats the thing, this is a very good college but I don't like it. Anyways, I am rambling now, I hope you have a nice day.

I pitted them against each other, but not until they set aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.
- Stare at the Sun
How, oh how are we off on a tangent again? Oh, we say what we say, and the poison is breaking our skin. Blame, what's to blame? It's an argument no one can win; 'cause at best, we don't know, and it's wearing us thin.
Come on, can't I dream for one day there's nothing that can't be done? But how long should it take somebody, before they can be someone? 'Cause I know there's got to be another level, somewhere closer to the other side. And I'm feeling like it's now or never. Can I break the spell of the typical?

- What is Dvorak? Part 3
Changing your PC over to Dvorak is actually quite easy. In your Control Panel, in the Keyboard settings, you will see a tab for "Input Locales." If you want to use Dvorak, simply select a Dvorak layout from the drop down on this screen (please note - you may have to re-start running applications for the change to take effect within them).

- What is Dvorak? Part 2
Dvorak is easy to pick up, taking about half as long as Qwerty. That is little comfort to those who are already familiar with Qwerty, as it means starting over. However, the benefits certainly make it worth spending a couple of weeks learning to type all over again. For many of us, that is actually a benefit, since many computer users never learned to type properly in the first place.

- What is Dvorak?
Dvorak is an alternative to Qwerty. It is a keyboard layout designed to minimize movement, and make typing easy and painless. The idea behind it is to have the most commonly typed keys under the fingers, and make it easy to type common words and combinations of letters. To give you a perspective, consider that if average Dvorak typist's fingers travel one mile in a day of typing, Qwerty typist's will travel anything 16 to 20 miles a day. By the way, don't ask me the proof for above example.

This already suffices to distinguish the specter not only from the icon or the idol but also from the image of the image, from the Platonic phantasma, as well as from the simple simulacrum of something in general to which it is nevertheless so close and with which it shares, in other respects, more than one feature.

Mechanisms of power in general have never been much studied by history. History has been studied those who held power - anecdotal histories of kings and generals; contrasted with this there has been the history of economic processes and infrastructures.
