Current Affair

I.
I wish they'd let donkey honk
on congressional bunk
about baseball drug punk.

You see there is no oxymoron
in the pro games of
go go around .

That is because
we let them use
all drugs they can produce.
But so far only one drug works
in the forms of pure O-O tanks.

Maybe we should all declare
to offer one mole of fresh air
in helping to extinguish
never dying smoke and flare
about drugs and drag race

And to sing this song together,
adieu adieu
there is no current affair

II.
Each day is a new day,
in each day, tk is a new tk ,
so tell me how
a new thing on top of an old link
is not a new thing all together?

" there is no universal answer" (sorry atai, this is a quote from raph out of his context which i forgot is where ) - Only true when you can't abstract sets of problem into a universal question. But when a universal question shows up, the universal answer is of no use, only the deviate data sets become interesting once again.

sneakums , I take my liberty to catch your breath before you elided again. So what exactly have you been doing in approximately eighteen month? (good for you, if you haven't done anything remotely related to the spirit of free software movement. As for myself, i can't see there is any hope of escaping those traps.)

The following is sneakums' fading existence on advogato:

righto, tk is right on target. there are plenty lunatic out there that really should be programmed doing something else for a living in the days when they are young and energetic instead of coding for selling their codes' sake. "Coding for selling codes' sake" should be reserved as a retirement street pedaling kind of fun for old age folks whose body no longer let them do the heavy lifting. It's all very subjective system design issues, indeed.

"i consider myself to be more a teacher of programming (i am just better at that)"
-> MY ASS exemplify my babe how to fart
-> so i call myself a teacher of programming, just like you do.
->>Ditto.

Goodness, someone categorize my very serious preaching part-time job as value added entertainment for Free Software movement . Maybe i should start charging some Fee for the value of MY entertainment? Will that be acceptable here? What will happen to this 'entertaining' stage of mine if i started to request tokens from people in order to watch my show? Oh, it already happened on badvogato. If you can't count your fingers, you are blind.

Here's one of my thoughts this morning when the power went off at my house:
1. Theism is for people who believe in A theism;
2. Atheism is for those who question the nature of "A" in theist's "A theism". Those lies, statistics and damned lies about "A" God fascinates me.
3. badvogato's part time job is to preach 'Atheism' to theists and 'Theism' to atheists. And his part time job gives him the security that he never felt doing his day time job.

if i would give anybody a 'diet coke', it would be "In Defense of Reality - conversations between Ray Cappo & Satyaraj Das".

Ray Cappo: (Raghunath Das) is an outspoken singer/song-writer, as well as a practioner of Bhakti-yoga and an initiated Vaishnava priest. Now leading Shelter, an alternative rock band, he is propounding the Vedic yoga philosophy through music to an increasing number of enthusiastic fans. He performs as well as lectures throughout America and Europe, while annually visiting India for spiritual pilgrimage. Ray is currently releasing his seventh album entitled, Attaining the Supreme

Satyaraj das: (Steven Rosen) is a free-lance writer and author of ten books, including the popular "Food for the Spirit: Vegetarianism and the World Religions (New York: Bala Books, 1987). He is an initiated disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder and the spiritual master of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. Although Satyaraj was not born in India, his writing and scholarship have developed for him a reputation as an important voice in the Indian religious community. Currently, he is editor-in-chief of the Journal of Vaishnava Studies, an academic quarterly that is esteemed & supported by scholars throughout the world.
