Capitalism to blame for lack of life on Mars

Chavez says capitalism may have ended life on Mars

(Reuters) – Capitalism may be to blame for the lack of life on the planet Mars, Venezuela’s socialist President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday.

“I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet,” Chavez said in speech to mark World Water Day.


Well, That explains a lot. This is probably what happened on the Moon too. I’ve been wondering what happened to all the Martians and those little green Moon Men. When were our scientists were going to tell us this? Driven to extinction for the dollar! Dangit!

Your Last Point and Shoot Camera

I read an article a month or so ago almost titled “The point and shoot camera you own right now is the last point and shoot camera you’ll ever buy”. Of course, I can’t find the article now, but the gist was that cell phone cameras are getting so good that you won’t need to carry a camera and your phone. My cell phone has a 5 Megapixel camera, which isn’t bad, and since I read that article I’ve been trying to take more photos with my phone.
Now here’s something for you to check out: The Lomography website. Lomography is a group that is dedicated to analogue (film) photography. But I like their 10 Golden Rules and think it would be a good idea to apply these rules, even though I (we) use a digital camera. Plus, your phone camera is one you probably have with you all the time, which is Rule Numba One.

Thick Thursday

I am not awake yet. I’ve been up, walked the dawgs, but not had my first sippa coffee yet.
I’ve been running some newspaper ads for the company. So far I got two calls.
I don’t have a topic today, I’m just rambling. I am pretty stunned by Japan. Now the reactors are melting. Imagine your house is wrecked, your family is distraught, and you have to go to work every day to try to keep the reactors from melting. Probably there is a lot of heroes being made in Japan these days.
Also I was thinking this blog is kind of psychotic. I think that’s the word. One day the post is a joke, a funny picture or something. The next is disaster video. Then another joke. It’s all over the place.
Today I am picking up a laptop to fix, and I have to make some calls. I want to start swimming again. I dug my goggles out yesterday. Remember when I used to swim a half mile a day?
Look at the text on this post, to me it looks like the red is projecting out of the screen about an inch, while the blue looks further away. Do you see it? or is it just my damaged brain hallucinating?
