Hey Bonny, I saw your response about the US having a gun control problem, and I'm not sure if people appreciate what gun control people are against in this country. The National Rifle Association is probably one of the most powerful lobbies in the government, plus we were "guaranteed" by the constitution to be able to carry guns. My own brother has lots of guns to "protect him in case somebody tried to break in to his house or come after him". There's thousands and thousands just like him and worse. That's why I don't think we'll ever get rid of the problem. (I didn't want to discuss this on the Zappa forum.) :)

And are you aware that Australia had exactly the same problem but they managed to get rid of it after only one mass slaughter?

Yes, I'm aware. Did Australians threaten to shoot anybody that tried to take their guns away? That's what is happening here. As long as they think they have a constitutional right, ain't nobody takin' their guns away. Nothing gets done here and nothing will. It's depressing.

I'm fine these couple days,
It's cold here,
the ground is covered
here in day-old snow.
Sky is clear and
bright with new sun
perched just above
near-distant roofs.

Caught up with a little mail,
tried to start some fiction reading.
Made the coffee,
changed out loads of laundry.
Looked at internet:
twitter, mail, news:
four hours pass.

It's morning now.
Sky aglow with winter-bright.
:bouncy:


Calvin's right of course, but I try to avoid those arguments by simply refusing to
go down the rabbit hole of 'what might happen'. :)
'Nobody can predict the future,' I say,
'In fact, you might be surprised by WHO's disallowed
ANY research into what has actually happened. Today, ER and Trauma-unit doctors are pointing out they are the ones to combat this lack of awareness as to what's been happening, cleaning up this plague of people with inexplicable bullet-holes in them ...
Until very recently when the Washington-Post teamed up with a number of other houses to figure out what has actually transpired, where they can get the data, on their own. Because as Laws have been passed by lobbyist enducement to ensure not just their narrative... but an actual lack of evidence from which to compile their own conclusions. They say GOV should not spend money to find out how harmful which guns or their accesories, or their users are actually dangerous! But actually, so far, the only consistent data we have about their widespread use are with practice-range sheets for cops who get on avg.18%-21% at best accuracy rates...".
But they want to predict the future :duh:
etc.
It is depressing.

That's why I go for questioning the lack of evidence, because that means widespread opinions can be shown to be really based on ignorance.
That is, when I feel compelled to. :grin:

I didn't want to start a political discussion, just wanted to answer here instead of there. :)

I'm hoping for something new from the ZFT, I'm not going to the hologram stuff.

I doubt the hologram will make it across the ocean...

Had adreadful night's sleep. Woke up in the middle of the night thinking it was 7AM already, turned off my alarm, found I was so sleepy I set my alarm to7:30 and went back to bed, only later realizing that it probably wasn't 7AM when I got up to reset the alarm. After that I became restless not knowiing what time it is. I sure wish I could curl up right now...

Anyone else digging through their closets for KU? He lost his house in the Camp Fire.

I have a couple... thinking of adding YAWYI to the list.

BF came over this weekend, which is why I have been quiet.

The last post that I thought I'd posted here is absent. That's weird.

Anyway, I'd said I was sorry to hear about KU's plight, but wouldn't be offering any material help. I talked about Darwin being depressed now that his brother Fitzroy is gone. He's finding it difficult being a lone dog, they'd been together since birth, almost 11 years. He's getting better now, but he's a more needy dog on his own. I forget if there was anything else.

My latest news Bonny, as hinted at some time ago, is that plans are now firming up and my wife and I will be passing through Eindhoven around 12th July next year in a camper van. It would be nice to meet up with you and DED somewhere you could recommend for lunch or dinner. We're thinking of visiting the modern art museum there, but you might have something else to recommend that we shouldn't miss.

We haven't heard from Aqua for a while, I hope he's okay.

Well technically there were breaks and there was 45 minutes between end of worktime and start ofworkshop... and at the workshop it was listening and eating pizza. And we had a quiz and I won. Prize was chocolate.

The chocolate has already been processed.

When you can't win money, chocolate is good.
