Unsettled hydration breeds
And bleeds in melody
And time is for finding
When you have the self conscious DNA
And we are offered a tray
To take our minds away from choice
Away and false feeling
And we will reel
I hate to drop the bucket
But the well is spent
Truth is, the rail is gonna get bent.
And the road won’t run,
And tomorrow we’ll remember the sun
And the one
In the sight, in the seeing.
Away from flies in the jar
The rides in the car
The lives in the bar.
'Bottle up the sauce.
Down, put it down.'

It's nice to see the good side of science,
the savior side to Man's imaginings,
and the upside to trying to win a bet.
Witness! Frozen Smoke
If you follow what NASA's recent probe, Stardust, was using to capture
tiny grains of material in space, you have already heard of 'Aerogel'.
But I had no idea of the further implications of this stuff.
Go read the article. This could be one of the more poignant signposts
on the road to the interior of the 21st century.

"The Roman Republic fell for many reasons, but three reasons are worth remembering: declining moral values and political civility at home, an overconfident and overextended military in foreign lands, and fiscal irresponsibility by the central government."
I want everyone to think for second.
I want everyone to consider how their life will change very soon.
The system is consuming itself.
It is becoming visible to even the blindest sheep.
This is not a new reality television show.
The Troubles are coming back to us and our land.
The reset button will slam down like a thunder clap.
The road to Mt. Doom is long,
and the Ring is heavy.
Not all of us are going to make it.

and smoke doesn't reveal destruction.
The sound of something moving,
is the sound of air getting the heck outta the way.
Often, time tells itself.
No, you're not supposed to get anything out of this.
You are not the customer. You are not automatically right.
I like Carrie's attitude,
a good budding buddhist.
Did you miss it?
Do you still?
