Dammit! If my mother waited 3 1/2 more months, before she got cozy with the neighbors, I'd be a Yuppy.

The rest of us may have to wait a bit ...

Dude (whoopsie, I forgot the Venice Beach spelling for some of our readers).

Dood: Ever heard of a Yumpie?

Young Upwardly Mobile Professional. I was one of them before I retired. Now, with my status, I'm a Sink. Single Income No Kids.

As you know by now, I'm not a huge fan of abbreviations.

I don't consider myself old, I'm like fine tequila - properly aging. I embrace it fully since now I generate my best ideas and worthy interpretations of observations, some of which make me laugh uproariously.

Just a few years ago, I was enjoying a dinner with our drilling crew at Casa Gallardo, a Mexican restaurant in St. Louis. As is custom among the drillers, we discussed the progress of the day's work (good), plans for the next day (leapfrogging two auger trucks on various locations to complete the job), and what practices proved successful in the various rock strata (switching from a surface set diamond bit to a high-speed diamond bit once we got past a shale layer).

What happened next was the stuff of legend. The drillers were discussing the TV they preferred in the evening, from NFL football to Discovery Channel's offerings, but all agreed on one preference: Warner Brothers cartoons . One driller liked Foghorn Leghorn the best. Another preferred Road Runner, while yet another liked Bugs Bunny. It was very interesting to watch these 40 to 60 year old tradesmen discussing what some would call kiddy TV. They asked me my preference, and I told them that I liked the Tasmanian Devil. The lead driller on one rig, Charlie, said "Well, I don't recall him."

Bill, the lead driller on another rig, looked over at Charlie and responded,,
"Sure you do, Charlie....he's the one that hunches like this and then turns into a tornado.....". Bill stood up and hunched over, looking more like Quasimodo than the Tasmanian Devil.

I couldn't help myself. I said, "No, Bill, it's more like this...." I stood up, hunched over just a little bit, waved my arms around a little bit, and gave my best impression of a Tasmanian Devil.

And at the same time, and fully by accident, I farted.

Charlie said "AH! I remember now."

Few of us could stop laughing until we returned to the hotel that night.

It's all about timing.

Smart, Compassionate, and Aware. That is all I want to be, and hopefully I'll live long enough to be that. One of my dogs puppy was named "Taz." Like you I'm a sink, with the exception of being able to witness one little girl find her way. Probably the only thing I can say I'm proud of is her. Of course if I thought about, there are other things. Younger sister, nieces, nephews, but still that one little girl stands out. Now I just moved into a warehouse, with an unfinished loft apartment. Had to evict 8 rats the hard way, but now it's my creative launch pad.

I think you're well on your way with all three- smart, compassionate, and aware.

My creative launch pad is a 2000 square foot duplex in a developing neighborhood. I sit on the edge of the 2nd largest park in the city, which has the longest bike trail. I found out by accident several years ago that the fire department's response time here is under 1 minute. I consider myself extremely blessed.

No one ruled the day when the "Polish Hammer" landed. I lost sleep when "George the Animal Steel" decided to feast on "Chief J Strongbow's" forehead. Then I found out it was all fake. I was just as deflated, as I was when I stayed up on Christmas eve, waiting to see Santa Claus fly across the sky. The blissful ignorance of youth. Now your telling me Burninng Man actually exhisted, and I'm suppose to believe?....OK.....

Say it's all 'fake' to the wrong guy and you're liable to end up badly hurt or worse. The entire art of professional wrestling is based in the suspension of disbelief. There are wrestlers who are legitimate badasses in ANY arena,male and female.
Brock Lesnar. Ken Shamrock. Meng of the old WCW actually bit off a guy's nose in a barfight.
Santa Claus is VERY real. He gets tracked by US Air Force radar on a yearly basis. How can he visit so many homes in a single night? He's a driven individual, just like Juan Valdez hand picking all of the megatons of Columbian coffee consumed yearly.

Burningman existed. We have pictures.

The only truth I ever found, was in the ring. I might of been able to hold my own at 165lbs. but I sure as hell ain't going to piss off a jacked & stacked wrestler twice my size. You understand I was a childhood fan, and of course it takes some athletic competence to do what they do. So all fake might've been too black & white. At 6.2 120lbs I wrestled in high school, and destroyed everyone in my weight class. When it came time to play king of the hill, I humbled more then a few 150 pounders. Frankly though I didn't care much for the up close and personal contact with sweathogs. That's why I truly enjoyed kick boxing. I'd let my opponent talk all the smak talk they wanted to. I wouldn't stare them down, till they knew they were defeated. What they would see, is everything I wanted them to see. Those glory days are over, except for the hits I can still feel.

"Contential drift explained in 20 seconds using bumbercars"

I call bullshit, It can't be done. You think you can say 'seafloor spreading, continental drift, and mantle convection currents" in 20 seconds to explain it and you haven't even covered a miniscule part of the theory of plate tectonics and the observational evidence behind it. The observational evidence still astounds me when I see that the top of Mount Everest consists of Ordovician marine limestone and there's no seafloor older than Triassic, and that the Canadians have done deep geophysical tomographic imaging that shows two former pieces of the sea floor stacked like pancakes in the upper mantle under western North America, All of this heavy intellectual mind-blowing shit can't be explained in 20 seconds.....No way.

And Miura-7:
"You know what I am? I'm tired. Tired of fighting. I'd rather build smiles, then take out a mouthpiece. That's my new truth."

You get the point of life in building smiles. There's only one time to fight, and then you "rage, rage against the dying of the light". You fight to preserve life and what's right. You stick up for those who can't stick up for themselves; you protect and defend children and the elderly. The elderly represent our societal memory, ans children are our hope for a future. The defense of all of those is what defines a great warrior, according to a quote from Sitting Bull:

"For us, warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who can not provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity."

This understanding works for me.
