Not Breaking, but Interesting News

05 June 2015

All right, so this one isn’t so much news as an engaging blog post. Either way, it’s pretty damn interesting. When I used to live back East, I would get stopped in the street fairly often by people who were convinced I was someone else. One time, a woman chased me down. You’d think by the time she got up close she would have figured out she had made a mistake, but she didn’t. This kind of stuff happened often enough that I thought people were just messing with me, making fun, but they never were. How weird is it that we even lived in the same area? Creepy if you ask me.

And here we are, taking two steps back as promised. A “mediocre aphrodisiac with scary side effects” sounds rather horrifying. It also sounds like something you would buy at a questionable gas station where you get iffy caffeine pills and fancy lighters.

Well, now that I think about it, trains are sexier than buses. Even the word ‘bus’ is curt and unattractive. Weird.

Yeah it sounds cultish, but in reality, there’s got to be a better option. Whatever it is we’ve been doing up until this point is not working for the majority of the world and it’s time to change that. The advent of the Internet and Information Age will not allow things to stay this way forever.

Hell yes it should. Cheers to that!

Um, Prime Minister Cameron, do you think you would mind purging Mexico first? The old country could use a little help and by a little I mean truckloads, STAT.
