The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

Somehow all of this reminds me of Arthur C. Clark's short story "The Possessed".
Vituđ ér enn - eđa hvat?  -Voluspa

Nothing really rocks and nothing really rolls and nothing's ever worth the cost...

it kind of reminds of the set-top boxes from the shitty Batman movie w/ Jim Carey as the Riddler (#3? #4?)

yesterday afternoon i saw several single cars -the newer small globose little type (often female) younger students drive- holding with hazards blinking on the shoulder of the Autobahn en roote. One in the siding box before entrance of a longer tunnel (quite a landmark!) ... that sight usually happens only once or twice a year if some older cars had a brakedown in wet or cold weather
i could swear each was Pokemon related  :o

Pokemon Go: Saudi clerics issue fatwa on 'un-Islamic' game  (...but beheading  people as punishment on an open street crossing and displaying the remains like the IS is still OK :idiot2:)

A senior official at Egypt's Al-Azhar, the pre-eminent seat of Sunni scholarship in the Muslim world, has also spoken out against the game.
