Doing shit includes typing shit.

Just sayin'





You can type on the Sabbath.

You can read, you can do what you want.

You just are not supposed to work, at your normal job.

At walmart, or whatever.

The Sabbath, is your day off.

Before they had

Days off.

The traditional orthodox jewish view however, that you can not even do little things like "turning on a light switch", or "prepare your food", are an invention, not found in the bible.

i.e. silliness.

And attempt to "be extra good".

Well, how sweet.

I normally like that.

Don't get me started.

Once a person, starts reading my words

They are no longer stupid.

They are no longer ignorant.

And, they are no longer illiterate.

It is a spiders web

You walk onto.

When you read my words.

You may, already, be dead.

Check your pulse

Every five minutes.

Or say grace.

Those

Are your choices.

No plan B.

With me.

Plan A

Will do fine.

Ahhh, I get it. You're the forbidden fruit, and you want us to eat you. Core and all?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I so completely agree.

Performing silly rites and rituals for superstitious reasons is beyond silliness...

it's OCD.

I know some people who

obsessively and

compulsively

attend church and mumble meaningless platitudes

before they eat.

Utter silliness.

I am "the Tree of Life".

This is true.

You eat of my fruit, and you will live.

That is very true.

And conversely..

Should you not.

Can you fill in that blank?

He said, 'since I got my eyesight back,
My voice has just deserted me.
No 'georgia on my mind' no more...
I stay in bed with mtv.'

Then ray took his glasses off
And I could look inside his head
Flashing like a thunderstorm
I saw a shining spider web

I dreamed about ray charles last night
He took me flying in the air
Showed my own spider webs
Said, 'honey, you had best take care.
The world is made of spider webs
The threads are stuck to me and you
Be careful what you're wishing for
'cause when you gain you just might lose'
You just might lose your spider web

Hello Bryan.

I would like to post an obituary.

If you don't mind.

Todd Strickland, has died.

https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=...62&fref=ts

Todd, was my brother Eric's, best friend.

My brothers

Life long friend.

And God killed him, for no apparent reason, two days ago.

And that is a noteworthy event.

He was about 45.

And his heart stopped, for no reason.

People who do not say grace.

Will run into this, over and over, NOW.

Even people, I know.

Some additional obituaries.

Of people who just died, for no reason.

The young black actor, on "Rizzoli and Isles", Lee Thompson Young.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Thompson_Young

The young girl from "That Seventies Show", Lisa Robin Kelly.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisa_Robin_Kelly

So

Bryan

I am like kidding.

Ya.

Sure.
