Q: Mediocre Gossip Wednesday? A: Wrong. Good News Tuesday.
Heck-o, dear reader. (I say “heck-o” because “hell-o” might be a little harsh for Good News Tuesday)
I’m looking at the google analytics, and I see I have some returning visitors. I’m thrilled to know that people all over the world repeatedly check my little node of the web. So much, in fact, that I’d like to give a few shout-outs to some spots around the globe:
Qatar: I’m blushing. You guys spend more time viewing my site than anyone else, and I only have a vague notion of your existance! According to Wikipedia, you’re an absolute monarchy, have the world’s highest GDP per capita, and are “now the location for the U.S. Central Command’s Forward Headquarters and the Combined Air Operations Center.” Thanks for tuning in! I think…
Netherlands: More returning visitors than my own country. Impressive! I would absolutely love to visit you some day. Anyone wanna sponsor me?
Italy: you view the most pages of all returning visitors. Thanks for being so thorough. You’re beautiful!
And, all regulars, in all countries, in case you didn’t notice the cute little icon under the logo, unperson has a Facebook page, and you know what? I’d love for you to be my facebook friendster (dot com (mie)).
Maybe this is one of those things you can just play loud while you’re cleaning the house or doing laundry. Or listen to it through your headphones while you walk or jog or do whatever it is you do. It’s up to you, but you gotta hear this man speak. Seriously.
I left off a few days ago talking about Ron Paul. I know, I know, he’s all over the Internet. Message boards are flooded by his diehard supporters. I’ve never been a huge fan, but I respect any US politician who believes in something other than business-as-usual. In this (long-ass) article, Glenn Greenwald points out that Dr. Paul stands for many of the things Democrats should stand for, but don’t. The piece is also about the all-or-nothing attitude that pervades US politics.
Ron Paul is lurching ahead in the race. I hope he wins his party’s nomination. Not because I agree with the man, but, at least things would get interesting. Romney is a wooden moneytool — a guaranteed puppet. More of the same of the same of the same of the same. Dr. Paul is something else.
Okay. One more day of 2011. Make it a beauty, beauty.
Here is amazing time lapse footage from the International Space Station. This isn’t a computer model, this is a camera filming the earth from outer-friggin’-space. And you can watch it in your panties. I love the future.
