I see it as the opposite.
You're in a casket that's doesn't decompose.
The corpse is full of embalming fluid.

That's not going to decompose (not for a long while.)
When I went to my grandpa funneral in Mexico a few weeks ago, he was buried with my uncle.

My sister had a slight panic because we saw our uncle's casket. Almost perfect condition. I guess the fact that she was close to him and that she hadn't been close to him since she was 5 years old freaked her out.

There's a place (a park) in CA where you can be buried "naturally". No embalming fluid. No casket. It's contraversial because they believe there's a health and sanitation issues.

Any ways,
to me-- ashes is the fastest way of making sure I'm gone...

Stop posting in the reg lounge.

I don't give a fuck where you go, or when you leave...but allow me to speak for the majority of us, when I tell you that you're not welcome here.

Hey, I'd like that very much. Do you know if other places in America do this...or is it just that one park in CA?

I want to donate my body to science, personally. That seems like it would do people the most benefit, and I don't want a place where people would come look at where I was buried. That's not me down there, that's a corpse.


Think you're pretty clever...

I think there are others in the US.
It's been so long-- I think it was 3 years when I read that article in the Mercury News.

Let me try to google it.

No, you are not. You only signed up this year...and very few of your posts are from the politics forum. Take a look at your post history.

See what I mean? You're not a regular to politics...and you've very few posts, at all.

just tellin you just b/c your life is like a train wreck doesnt mean you should it out on me

I don't want to take it out on you. I just never want to see you within the confines of this thread, again.

And since you can't take a simple, and fairly polite (for me) request...I'll just ignore you, from here on out. Goodbye.

I urge all the other regs to make it a point not to respond to this guy. He's only got a hundred posts left (so he says)...and we can soldier through his cur-ish rantings, until then.

Always good for those stressful occasions.


I recieved a T.S. Eliot book of poetry, and a book of poetry by the great Dylan Thomas.

Some great poetry there, I'm sure.

Waylon Jennings always was one of my favorite country artists.
, and a flask.

I've wanted a flask for a long time...and now I can drink every place I go.

Good times! :D

My gift hall consisted of:

An old pocket knife, a sort of family heirloom.
An old razor, another item that's been in the family a while.
An unusual globe-shaped paperweight.
Jethro Tull's Songs From the Wood on CD, which is a sight better than the tinny sound I get out of my vinyl copy. It also has a couple bonus tracks!
A cute paper heart (my little sister is six)
An IOU for a new PS2, to replace my rickety old one. My Mom makes good on IOUs pretty quickly.

Same here. I appreciated having an ice-cold, dark rain, on Christmas.

For me, that rain actually changed to snow in the mid afternoon. It was unusual, considering the temperature. The snow was there long enough to make things look pretty, and went away that night. That was nice, because I could've left the house if I so chose. Not that I ever do.

Out of curiosity...do hawks, and such, make permanent homes? Or do they just set down stakes for small periods of time?

I'm not sure about that. It depends on where you live, I suppose. If a hawk were to take up a permanent residence, it would be in a warmer southern climate, anyway. Hawks that live in warmer climates do not migrate, as I understand it.

Most defintely. I consider both men to be two of the greatest poets to ever live.

I'd almost literally kill someone, to write like Eliot.

Aww. I've never had a sister. I kind of always wanted one.

Is it weird to wish that I had a sister, along with my brother?

Hopefully, I won't develop anytime soon, though.

I don't actually cry for celebrity deaths, usually. It seems so distant, like you can't be sure if it actually happened. Just a little blurb on the the evening news. I did cry when viewing Pope John Paul II's funeral, though. I'm not Caholic, and I knew virtually nothing about him, but it was such an emotional moment. The world was greatly moved by this man, and I was able to feel that, if you get my meaning.

Jethro Tull rocks hard.

The greatest band ever, if you ask me.

That's not weird at all. We're always wanting something in our lives that isn't there, and a sister's companionship can be a great thing to have.

Creepy for everyone else. Fun for you, provided your able to stick around and view the festivities. I'm not wholly certain of an afterlife, myself.

You know, I just realized that I spend more time in the reg lounge than I do actually debating political issues. It's like you're all becoming buddies to me. All of the interesting political issues have already been discussed to death, though. The best I can come up with is Canadian sex clubs.

Considering we already impregnated the country with our seamen and our infantry, rammed all its doors down, siezed it's pipe... lines, and basically took it by forcible entry... why pull out? I mean... finish the deed, this war has yet to come to it's climax.

Or... you can just leave yourself on the ground in a forest somewhere to rot, decompose back into the earth and create life from your fertilizing remains. :/

In a casket you're actually in a pressure vaccum, where you will decompose extremely slowly (years) and on top of that, your casket is sealed within a "vault" or concrete casket so... I don't think the Earth would be getting a single molecule from you that way.

Now then... I saw the movie KIDS today. I must say it was a sort of flashback through my adolescent days (around 10-17) back when my neighborhood was gang-infested and there was a lot of shit to be seen and shit to be done. Of course, I didn't go around whoring myself and giving everyone aids like the main character in the movie, but the parties, the inceasant cursing, and the constant talk about getting laid was all there. It's sad that it's still there with the subsequent generation(s)...

Anyway, this picture is from my favorite scene in the movie, never have I seen children act like grown men as I have in this scene of course, I don't smoke, but I found it highly amusing:

Oh, it does eventually get out. Perhaps a hasty decomposition would be more helpful to the Earth, though.

Nor do I. It was just that those two men had such a deep influence on me.
I, literally, grew up with their music.

I'll cry the day Bob Dylan dies, too. Like a fucking baby.

Jethro Tull rocks hard.

Locomotive Breathe is one of my favorite songs, of all time.
For both the lyrics, and the highly impressive flute, in the song.

I know exactly how you feel. There was a point when I rarely ever posted in here.
And now, it's a safe-haven of an oasis, from the rants and rambles of people I have no chance of beating in a debate (not because they have skill...just because they're too dumb to penetrate. I could scream at my dog all day, too...and come out with the same results).

Haven't slept in a day and a half. And now people are coming over, for afternoon drinking.

The days are strange, when the men don't sleep.

I love Zep...don't get me wrong. They're on my top five favorite bands, ever.

I just get tired of hearing about them. The local radio station loves to 'GET THE ZEP OUT!!!!!!!", at least fifteen times a day.

And all they want to play is stuff from II and 4. And those are both great albums...but I personally think III is the best, hands down.

'The gallows pole'? C'mon. Tell me that's not Zep's best song.
'Hats off (to Roy Harper)' makes me want to cum in my pants.

Naturally on the day after the christmas those radioshack commercials with the people asking for shit started to feature a kid with a jewfro bigger than the rest of his body. While he talked openly about the toy being for (I'm gonna fuck the spelling) chaunuca at the end they still said happy holidays. I'm depressed because these things wouldn't happen if the bulk of the population wasen't stupid or apathetic enough to let it. I need a nap and several drinks.


I have nothing against people who can use pot and lead a productive life. It's these sanctimonius hippies that make me wish I was a riot cop in the 60's

Lol, I don't think it's over the radioshack commercial... I think it's over the fact that so many people have collasped to politically correct sayings instead of saying 'Happy New Year' or 'Merry Christmas' or whatever.

But hey, Christmas IS over... and - fuck, I just lost my argument.

See? Exactly what I was talking about. ^^

Welp, I've got a story for you all - it involves my two uncles and a enormous gift that they gave themselves this christmas...

(Yes, they are gay, if I didn't already give it away)

Anyway... they decided to go to a store (Leon's) and buy a bunch of stuff on one of those 'Don't pay 'till next year' deals. On this agreement, they decided to buy - two LCD screens, a brand-new bedroom set, new dishes, and two $150 lamps. Altogether, that comes to a price of around... $7000.

Now, you might be thinking 'They must be pretty rich to afford all that!' Nope, nope. One of my uncles, Gary, works at a hotel, and the other, Dan, is a store manager. Your average income, if you will. However, they seem to get bored easily with the furniture that they have, and by this example alone shows how... unthoughtful they can be in their purchases.

The funny thing is that they didn't 'need' this stuff at all! They already had tv's (they replaced two good ones), bedroom sets, dishes, lamps - all in good condition. I guess apparently they're just going to 'live tight' for the next year so they can save enough money. My mom and I just basically said 'OMG' at them being so frivolous, and laughed in a 'you've got to be joking' way when they said they were going to 'buckle down' to save enough money.

If I were them, I would take it all back before it's too late. The interest is gonna be killer by next year. But hey...

I also have such a set of uncles. Do to them living far away and my fathers arguments with them over unrelated matters I didn't know either of them very well and early in life infact forgot which one was my actual uncle. When I asked about this my mother thought I was asking who was the boy and who was the girl. It's just like, no, they're both the boy, I get how that situation works. As for further details I cannot imagine a situation in which I would want to know or where she would have the answer.

To relate to your point further I am getting a new dvd player but it's not out of frevolity and I'm not paying for it. The store is giving me a replacement because the thing is broken and half the screen is blue


I have nothing against people who can use pot and lead a productive life. It's these sanctimonius hippies that make me wish I was a riot cop in the 60's

Yea, I don't know them very well either - they live on the west coast, and until now, I've mostly lived on the east coast. I did know them when I was very little (2-5), but after that I've had very little contact with them. Actually, one is only my mother's cousin, and the other unrelated, but I call them my uncles because they took care of me when I was little. They're pretty nice guys - excluding the frivolous side. The inherent paranoia in me doesn't get shut down though. :P

Bonus. At least they're taking it back and giving you a new one.

Oh, for all you people with the snow blues... Ha! Here's a picture from Edmonton, Alberta - god knows how many miles/kilometers north of you guys, and there's not an inch of snow. Not an inch.

I know. I'm surprised too.

Not really. Somewhere I've got a collection of George Carlin's early standup, and he did like 5 minutes on the sexual connotations of war, as related to Vietnam.

Pull out? Doesn't sound manly to me Bill... I say we stay in there and get the job done!

Only place I can't stand in CA is Redding... I totally forgot why I was even there because man... I vowed never to come back.

Waitasecond. I was watching the boob tube, and they were justifying "detaining" "enemy combatants" and "spying" on "suspected terrorists". It got me to thinking...

If the president has the authority to trample all over constitutional rights during times of "war", and this "war" is against everyone "against us" and probably will go on for the forseeable future...

Then this basically means the president has unlimited powers for forever, huh?


The one thing force produces is resistance.
