"Yes Men"

DEFINITION: "Yes Men" & (Yes Women)

"These people are staunch has beens (have nevers) -- they are most often impostors who (worldwide), agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce. These are the non-leaders who rose to a final level of incompetence, and who place themselves ahead of profits (and just about everything else)." Their noses invariably come-up, BROWN due to the incessant kisses applied to the posteriors of all who hold the most empowerment.

Did I say that politely? And so it is...

Planet Earth? Planet Ocean?

Why do we refer to our celestial orb as "Planet Earth"? When almost 70% of its surface is covered by The Deep -- tremendous volumes of ...Water!

How about renaming our cosmic home, "Planet Ocean"?

In the Running (for President) - "La Cou-Cou Raza"

A hispanic aquaintance told me (today) that Vincente Fox Quesada (the former President of Mexico) is going to run for President of the USA. "Que loco!" Could that be true? At least he has a sense of humor...

Hey I'd actually CONSIDER voting "Mexico" in 2008 (...if THEY can get the USA out of Iraq).

Leggo yer Ego!

Negativitis’ cripples the human spirit !
(Negative Thinking does not BARE the Soul... soul to soul!)

Does it not seem rather odd -- when certain people COMPLAIN that they don’t have enough TIME to be happy -- yet they find enough time to be sad?

No, not really...

You see, their deplorable plight has nothing to do with having sufficient or insufficient time. It has everything to do with the COMPLAINING. After all, complaining is the negation of happiness. It’s impossible to complain, and to also be happy the same time.

So, beware of that insidious disease known as ‘negativitis’ (negative thinking).

It is as pervasive as the common cold, but far more damaging. It mutilates, cripples, and corrodes the human spirit. Those infected by it are broken men and women aimlessly plodding along. The dark clouds brooding over them obscure their vision and cause them to become confrontational, apathetic, and cynical. Their lives are like flat champagne, without any sizzle. So, how do we inoculate ourselves against such a harmful disease? It was only after learning about the horrible effects of smoking that people began to give it up.
Have YOU quit smoking?

It may be wise to do the same here. So, let’s review the effects of "negativitis".

1. Complaining is worse than doing nothing -- for it is digging the rut one is in, deeper and deeper. Each time a person complains -- it becomes increasingly difficult to climb out of the ditch they’ve created. To loosen the grip of this vicious habit, we need to become aware of our complaining -- stop it in its tracks, and immediately look for something positive to say. It’s just a matter of replacing a bad habit with a good one.

2. A negative attitude is self-defeating.

We won’t find solutions to life’s problems by looking for someone or something to blame. Those who say, "Positive thinking doesn't work for me," have got it backwards. It’s not positive thinking that has to work; YOU have to work. For example, you have to work at appreciating what you have instead of moaning about what you lack.

3. Failure to do what you want to do (be happy) causes physical and mental stress.

A rotten attitude, not only delays success, but also shortens life by damaging the immune system (to learn more on how your thoughts affect your immune system, investigate "psychoneuroimmunology" ). So, besides the diseases directly caused by stress, such as heart disease and ulcers, we become susceptible to all manner of other diseases because of a weakened immune system !

4. Do you know anyone with a negative attitude? Do YOU have a negative attitude?

How many years have they been that way? Two years? Five years? Ten years? That’s how many years of happiness and success they have robbed themselves of. Blinded by their own negativity -- they are prevented from seeing the Good around them.

5. One characteristic of negative thinkers is their need to have the world behave according to their wishes.

They have never grown up and still live with childish demands. Whenever people and the world fail to act according to their selfish wishes, they are unhappy. Such a poisonous attitude prevents them from growing and learning how to cope with life's challenges.

6. Everything negative we say about ourselves to ourselves (self-talk) and to others is a suggestion.

We are unwittingly practicing self-hypnosis, programming ourselves for failure, and creating self-fulfilling prophecies.

7. The negative world of our imagination creates a negative world that is real and one that we are forced to live in.

8. A particularly pernicious effect of ‘negativitis’ is that it sets one up for the mentality of a victim.

Those with a woe-is-me attitude sit around in misery, waiting to be rescued. But they wait in vain because no one can rescue them from their own attitude. They are the only ones who can change it. And until they do so, they are condemned to continue suffering.

9. Another adverse effect of negativity is that it sets one up for the "magic-bullet" syndrome. That is, the victim of ‘negativitis’ spends their time looking for a quick, easy fix, when none exists. By denying a fundamental law of life that states anything worthwhile requires effort to achieve, they achieve nothing. They won’t make progress until they realize that nothing in life is free. They’ve got to be willing to do what it takes to get what they want.

10. Also, beware of the fact that negative people attract other complainers. Because those who live in a world of doom and gloom alienate others, they have no choice but to look for other negative people to associate with. They then feed off one another and get locked in a clique of losers.

11. The constant stress that flows from a negative attitude also saps one’s energy, focus, and motivation.

It is hardly a formula for success.

12. Also of great concern is the fact that those who refuse to work on improving their negative attitude -- may slide into depression, self-pity, and hopelessness.

Are YOU depressed?

13. Additionally, negative people not only harm themselves; they harm their world. They cease to make a contribution to it. Instead of helping, they spread gloom and misery everywhere. If they insist on infecting others, why not infect them with laughter? If they must carry something contagious, why not carry a smile?

14. Imagine being in a small boat drifting in a river ...and imagine being unaware that your boat has a motor. As long as you fail to use that motor you will be a captive of the meandering river. You will be a prisoner without any control over your final destination. Yet, the boat that we’re all riding in, does have a motor. We can use it to change our course. That motor is our power of choice...

All we have to do is choose to look for the GOOD -- for when we do so, that is what we will find!

And so it is Me Thinks,

World Leadership

Prior to the World Wars -- Americans were a simpler, isular and insulated people. By the close of WW-II, Americans found themselves at the center of World affairs -- both as the only surviving economic power, and as the military Superpower -- grown over-confident.

As a people we've plunged into conflicts ever since. Wielding the might of an omnipotent military threat (one that has progressively emptied the US Treasury). Have you ever stopped to ask yourself what percentage of American assets, aren't "American" anymore? America had become the Goliath of the planetary economy during those equally devastating World wars.

Al-Kaida has become the David, armed with a sling. Are westerners going to be taken down by a stone?

The Nag Hammadi Library

The “Nag Hammadi Library” (popularly known as The Gnostic Gospels) is a collection of early Christian Gnostic texts (written in Coptic script) discovered near the Egyptian town of "Nag Hammadi", in 1945. That year, twelve leather-bound papyrus codices were found buried in a sealed pottery jar. The documents presented here are English translation(s).

It occurs whenever a composer leaves whole sections and specific elements of a solo musical performance to the discretion of a poor performer.

(Marketing Insults) on Father Day?

(this year it's on the 17th of June)


Let's fire all of the GUILTY Advertising Agencies! I assert that we should also DUMP their lame-ass, anti-male TV & magazine Ads! Who of (all thinking people) does not become sick-to-one's-stomach due to their BUZZ? I refer to the trendy, plethora of INSULT-THE-MEN slants that appear in advertising today!

I just hate that garbage and I for one, won't buy ANY products from the companies that use those strategies!

Or, haven't you noticed how many Ads demean "men" (males in general, and of all ages)? They make males out to be total "nincompoops" (silly, foolish, or stupid persons). And while that SLANDER is going down, all the females who appear in the Ads (also, of all ages) ...and everywhere within earshot -- busily roll their eyes while looking skyward -- acting as though they're the gloating "superior" race of "men"? Did they accept PAY to do that? Whoa!

Reverse gender-bias really does SELL! So, I suppose the terms: "ex-boyfriend", "ex-fiancé", and "ex-husband" qualify me as, "pre-owned" ...and thus "on sale", "a great deal" -- just a few less "MPG", at an affordable "APR", and at a "Mfgrs" price below "invoice"?

Do you see what I mean?

And while I'm on the subject of "STUPID" stuff -- let's add these terms to a list of "ban-em-forever", all-American buzzwords:

ARMED ROBBERY/DRUG DEAL GONE BAD: From the news reports. What degree of "bad" don't we understand? -- "After it stopped going well and good?"

ASK YOUR DOCTOR: The chewable-vitamin, morphine-of-marketing! -- "Ask your doctor if 'fill in the blank' is right for you! Heck, just take one and see if it makes you 'fill in the blank' or get deathly ill." -- "I don't think my doctor would appreciate my calling him after seeing a TV ad." I suggest that you ask your attorney to talk to 'the manufacturer' -- about all their disclaimers -- with reference to all the side-effects -- (spoken) "as-fast-as-they-can-speak".

AWESOME: Given a one-year moratorium in the mid-80's, when the Unicorn Hunters banished it ...during which it is to be rehabilitated until it means 'fear mingled with admiration or reverence' -- a feeling produced by something majestic." I say that there's no hope and it's time for "the full banishment. "The kind of tennis shoes you wear, no matter how clumsy, and that don't fit the majestic design of the word." -- "That a mop, a deodorant or a dating service can be called 'awesome' demonstrates the limited vocabulary of the country's copywriters." -- "Overused and meaningless.' My mother was hit by a car.' Awesome. 'I just got my college degree in English.' Awesome."

BOASTS: See classified advertisements for houses, as in "master bedroom boasts his-and-her fireplaces -- "It's never 'bathroom apologizes for cracked linoleum,' or 'kitchen laments pathetic placement of electrical outlets.'"

CHIPOTLE: Smoked dry over medium heat. -- "Not so long ago, ...a roasted jalapeno. Now we have a 'chipotle' burrito with 'chipotle' marinated meat, 'chipotle' peppers, sprinkled with a 'chipotle' seasoning and smothered in a 'chipotle' sauce. Time to give this word an extended rest."

COMBINED CELEBRITY NAMES: Celebrity "duos" of yore, e.g. "BogCall" (Bogart & Bacall), "Lardy" (Laurel & Hardy), and "CheeChong" (Cheech & Chong) just got lucky. "It's bad enough that celebrities have to be the top news stories. Now we've given them obnoxious names such as 'Bragelina,' 'TomKat' and 'Bennifer.'" -- "It's so annoying, idiotic and so lame and pathetic that it's 'lam-e-thetic.' "

GITMO: US military shorthand, for a base in Cuba -- the term drives a wedge wider than a split infinitive. "When did the notorious Guantanamo Bay Naval Base change to 'Gitmo', a word that conjures up an image of a bug-eyed, fluffy character in a kid-movie?"

GONE/WENT MISSING: It makes 'missing' sound like a place you can visit, such as the 'Poconos'. Is the person missing, or not? "She went there but maybe she came back. 'Is missing', or 'was missing' -- would serve us better."

HEALTHY FOOD: Point of view is everything. -- Someone told me, that the tuna steak the person had for lunch "sounded healthy." The reply: "If my lunch were healthy, it would still be swimming in a salt sea somewhere. But grilled, and nestled on salad greens, it's 'healthful' "?

i-ANYTHING: A replacement - 'e-Anything' made the list a few years ago. -- "Tech companies everywhere have picked this apple to the core." -- "Turn on…tune in…and drop out." -- "Banish any word that starts with it. I am just tired of it. It's getting old, like me."

NOW PLAYING IN THEATERS: Heard in movie advertisements. Where can we see that, again? "How often do movies premiere in Laundromats or other places besides theaters? I know that when I want to see a movie I think about going to a shoe store."

PWN or PWNED: Thr styff of lemgendz: Gamer defeats gamer, types in "I pwn you" rather than I OWN you. "This word is just an overly used Internet typo. It has been overused to the point that people who play online games are using it as part of their everyday speech."

SEARCH: Quasi-anachronism. Placed on one-year moratorium. -- "Might as well banish it. The word has been replaced by the verb, 'to Google.' "

TRUTHINESS: This word, popularized by 'The Colbert Report' and exalted by the American Dialectic Society's Word of the Year in 2005, has been used up. "What used to ring true is getting all the truth wrung out of it."

UNDOCUMENTED ALIEN: If they haven't followed the law to get here, they are by definition 'illegal.' -- "It's like saying a drug dealer is an 'undocumented pharmacist.' "

WE'RE PREGNANT: Grounded for nine months? -- "Were men feeling left out of the whole morning sickness/huge belly/labor experience? You may both be expecting, but only one of you is pregnant." -- "I'm sure any woman who has given birth will tell you that 'WE' did not deliver the baby." Although I might look like it ...if I don't lose some weight soon.

Just say no (as in "denial"). Me Thinks,

What follows are the kinds of things that NOBODY really needs or wants to know, but there's always someone "out there" who does know -- and who wants to tell all, to YOU!

(Kinda scary eh?)

The word "queue" is the only word in the English language that is still pronounced the same way when the last four letters are removed. Beetles taste like apples, wasps like pine nuts, and worms like fried bacon. Of all the words in the English language, the word 'set' has the most definitions! What is called a "French kiss" in the English speaking world is known as an "English kiss" in France. "Almost" is the longest word in the English language with all the letters in alphabetical order. "Rhythm" is the longest English word without a vowel. In 1386, a pig in France was executed by public hanging for the murder of a child. A cockroach can live several weeks with its head cut off! Human thigh bones are stronger than concrete. You can't kill yourself by holding your breath. There is a city called Rome on every continent. It's against the law to have a pet dog in Iceland! Your heart beats over 100,000 times a day! Horatio Nelson, one of England's most illustrious Admirals was throughout his life, never able to find a cure for his sea-sickness. Right handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people. Your ribs move about 5 million times a year, as you breathe! The elephant is the only mammal that can't jump! One quarter of the bones in your body, are in your feet! Like fingerprints, everyone's tongue print is different! The first known transfusion of blood was performed as early as 1667, when Jean-Baptiste, transfused two pints of blood from a sheep to a young man. Fingernails grow nearly 4 times faster than toenails! Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin! The of the people of the world is predicted to become 15 billion by 2080. Women blink nearly twice as much as men. Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian, and had only ONE testicle. Honey is the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been tasted by archaeologists and found edible. Months that begin on a Sunday will always have a "Friday the 13th." Coca-Cola would be green if coloring weren’t added to it. On average, a hedgehog's heart beats 300 times a minute. More people are killed each year from bee-stings than from snake-bites. The average lead pencil will draw a line 35 miles long or write approximately 50,000 English words. More people are allergic to cow's milk than any other food. Camels have three eyelids to protect themselves from blowing sand. The placement of a donkey's eyes in its heads enables it to see all four feet at all times! The six official languages of the United Nations are: English, French, Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish. Earth is the only planet not named after a god. It's against the law to burp, or sneeze in a church in Nebraska, USA. You're born with 300 bones, but by the time you become an adult, you only have 206. Some worms will eat themselves if they can't find food! Dolphins sleep with one eye open! It is impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. The worlds oldest piece of chewing gum is 9000 years old! The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds. Queen Elizabeth I regarded herself as a paragon of cleanliness -- she declared that she bathed once every three months, whether she needed it or not. Slugs have 4 noses. Owls are the only birds who can see the color blue. A man named Charles Osborne had the hiccups for 69 years! A giraffe can clean its ears with its 21-inch tongue! The average person laughs 10 times a day! An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

But -- one of these AMAZING (but entirely useless facts) is false.
Do you know which one?

Ginormous Knuckleheads

There's nothing "nefarious" about the firing of all those US Attorneys...

Say! What the hell is in the water that is flowing out of our nation's capital? First we're all asked to believe in the non-secretiveness of a little-known cabal know as, "the firing of US Attorneys" (a rite that is politically celebrated between Presidential elections) -- especially whenever there's a lame duck squatting rotten eggs in the oval office.

Next, we have a President whose approval rating is still sliding (on a nose-dive, nose first) into a cess(and desist)-pool. He is dutifully followed by a (Halliburton man), our Vice-President -- who speaks only often enough to explain: sobriety, hunting accidents, and to advise assembled military forces of their BIG "win".

Last time I looked, the Iraq invasion is still on. But today, the Democrats would have us believing that the war is soon to be ended. They voted "yes" to a planned Exodus in 2008, while providing just enough funding (to save face, just in case).

You've got to think that BUSH and CHENEY have themselves lined-up for BIG book-deals once their Party is over. Whose Party is that, you ask? Dem'donkeys or doze Rep'lephants? Sadly, they're both saying all the right things to make the deal happen, and soon enough to cash-in their chips'ahoy, sailor!

Seemingly, politicians expect we "normal folks" to just keep going to work, only to suddenly find our mouths stuffed with schtinky cheese. I think that some of those fellas must be pretty darned proud of the widdle, surrender monkey -- whose tail is hanging down (betwixt their legs).

Ginormous knucklehead, CHENEY once pronounced and was allegedly prepared to "believe" that Iraq would become a "spawning ground for new terror assaults". If true, I would have to declare him a an idiot -- a nefarious moron. Nah, he was lying and was thus, saved from ginormity and nefariousness.

Meanwhile, we have a new Secretary of Defense who is presiding over the war of "death-by-a-thousand-cuts" as imposed upon our overstretched armed forces -- which was no surprise to any of the casual dissenters -- such as, a former Army Chief of Staff (who was dutifully, ignored).

Condoleeza RICE went in, tough. Now she sends BUSH on Hispano-tours to Latin America. I guess, that way -- she gets to stay at home to watch game-shows and "American Idol" while BUSH barters in favor of CITGO oil interests? (But are those two guys on speaking terms?)

Gee whiz, the White House, the US House, and the Senate sure do know how to churn-out super-weenies! Maybe that too has something to do with the water?

In President BUSH's 1st term, some of the most important decisions about U.S. national security — including vital decisions about postwar Iraq were made by a secretive, little-known power clique (aka "cabal", see usage above).

The clique was made up of a very small group of people led by Vice President, Dick CHENEY and Defense Secretary, Donald RUMSFELD. Eight months into BUSH's 1st presidential term in 2001, the September 11 attacks on America occurred. In response, BUSH announced a "war on terror" -- which became a central issue of his presidency. In early October 2001, he ordered the invasion of Afghanistan to overthrow the "Taliban" -- as part of an attempt to defeat "al-Qaeda". In March 2003, BUSH ordered the invasion of Iraq -- asserting that Iraq was in violation of UN Resolution 1441 (regarding weapons of mass destruction). His 2nd term is set to end January 20, 2009. Never say, never too soon?

What the hell is in the water at Washington D.C. ? "Pee" soup, or lame duck soup? Both are equally incontinet (don't hold water). I'm just curious (yellow) here, do you think BUSH's wife has an opinion, or aspirations -- like Hillary's?

O' save us, O'bama! Save us!

Acta Mathematica (QUANTUM CHAOS)!

Three Laws of Discovery

Law One:
(Implied by statements ...disputing priority, usually in response to what is seen as the neglect of certain Russian mathematicians. Of course, this Law is self-referential.), i.e.

"Discoveries are rarely attributed to the correct person."

Law Two: (Prompted by the observation that the sequence of antecedents under 'Law One' [above] seems quite endless.), i.e.

"Nothing is ever discovered for the first time."

Law Three: (aka: Whitehead’s Law) Quoted by
Max Dresden, Dutch physicist, historian and sociologist of science, teacher and lecturer [1918-1997] at the beginning of his biography of Hendrik "Hans" Anton Kramers, Dutch theoretical physicist [1894-1952], i.e.

"Everything of importance has been said before (by someone who did not discover it)."

Chaos Theory

"Chaos Theory" comes from the fact that -- the systems that the theory describes are apparently disordered, but chaos theory is really about finding the underlying order in apparently random data.

[ Rigorous formulas hamper understanding! Let the chaos never end, nor begin? -Ed. ]


"Determinism" is the philosophical belief that every event or action is the inevitable result of preceding events and actions. Thus, in principle at least, every event or action can be completely predicted in advance, or in retrospect. One of the important innovations that created modern science around the year 1500 A.D. was the idea that the laws of the material universe could be understood meaningfully only by expressing physical properties as quantified measurements, that is, in numerical terms and not just in words. Having understood what is meant by determinism, initial conditions, and uncertainty of measurements, you can now learn about dynamical instability, which to most physicists is the same in meaning as chaos. In a chaotic system, using the laws of physics to make precise long-term predictions is impossible, even in theory. Making long-term predictions to any degree of precision at all would require giving the initial conditions to infinite precision.

Law Four: (Did I announce just three? AKA, Robert's Law --
Enigmatic discovery is always indeterminant.) i.e.

"If you accept Chaos, one cannot be entirely sure that Chaos will accept you."

(often sending thereby, at very least two lives into the legal throws and challenges of personal chaos); In a land where almost 70% of our beloved children do not live with BOTH of their biological parents; In a land of political correctness; In a land of poignant, often idiotic double-standards (or no standards at all); In the land of legalized shenanigans, authored by men and women from all walks of life, and of all colors and creeds; In the land of double-speak (where everything is no longer "labelled" or "called" -- what it really is)...

Where we have adults whose lives are married, bonded by civil unions, or who have formed defacto (albeit non-legitimized) gay couples...

Where we have the never married, single, legally separated, or the divorced single, widows and widowers...

Where we have those who are "dating", "cheating", "two-timing", "sneaking", or "hiding", and "lying", (or doing nothing at all). Sexual, a-sexual, "bi", gay, queer, and straight. The old and young...

Societally ...what should we aptly (and "correctly") call: a sexual, middle-ground, male-female couple who spend their free time together; and who are clearly much more than just "boyfriend" or "girlfriend"; where (lest the naive have any illusions), the two are also lovers; not 'always' living together (not truly within a co-habitation); consider their "spin up" to be permanent; yet have remained (thus far) unmarried; and live geographically separate much of the time?

I am open to suggestions. Please spare me all traditional religious yap (you'd be wasting your time and mine). Here are some of my thoughts:

"All, but not Nothings"?

"Intimate Best Friends"?

Woe is me (and how silly can I get)? Your suggestions please.
