This has got to hurt in a way none of us can imagine:

Snow Crash

Filed under: Books — Jared @ 10:04 am

I finally, after years of off-and-on bugging by Seamus, read Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson (ISBN:055308853X, Amazon Link). Started Saturday, finished it yesterday afternoon (Long weekend and all). Gotta say, very glad I finally read it, and kinda kicking myself for waiting so long. Very dark, lots of humor, and at least a bit insightful as to how our world may turn out years from now. If you haven’t read it, go get it out of the library now.

This is such a cool idea; can anyone explain why it took them so long to do this?

Part of me wants to get pissed about this, but in the end I feel like this: If you’re stupid enough to pay $1k+ on one of these little nuclear reactors, you deserve what you get.

Habeas Corpus

Filed under: Politics — Jared @ 11:04 am

So, since they’re doing away with Habeas Corpus, can’t they give us all the benefits of a no-rights police state? That’s where we’re headed anyway. Where’s my state RFID enabled ID badge that does away with hard currency? Why not just enact full-on racial profiling? Where’s my promised job security, presuming I narc out one of my friends? Why aren’t members of the press that get out of line being imprisoned? I mean, come on; if you’re going to do it, do it right already!
