I told you so.

Frankly, I am not at all surprised that the end of the world did not come, and we weren’t all raptured.  I’m a bit disappointed too.

And yet so many won’t….

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Well, that was expected.

Election results: Conservative Majority.

Kind of what I thought shortly after the LAST federal election, when the Liberal leader pushed for another election, succeeding, finally, via a non-confidence vote. Stupid political gaming.

My thoughts at the time: I hope the election results are overwhelmingly against this opposition. And so it was.

Hey! Politicians:

With another federal election upon us, I have a tip for “the suits in charge:”

Just run the dang country, already.

Stop making all these stupid political promises that you will neither follow through on, nor stick to, just to get re-elected.

Stop playing all these stupid political games to either make yourself look good, stall bills, prevent anything from being accomplished, annoy the other party, or whatever menial non-country-running motivation has captured your self-centered heart.

I bet you’d get a lot more voter turn-out if we actually believed that you actually made a difference up there on the hill.  I’m gathering you do, but we see ABSOLUTELY NOTHING from/of our local representatives until election time, and then they disappear.  It just appears as if it’s all a game to you.

“It doesn’t matter who you vote for – the government always gets in.” –Unknown

Just run the dang country already.

Life is a proving ground

All the joys and sorrows, ups and downs, challenges and rewards of life have to be some sort of proving ground for the hereafter.

Once we are no longer bound by our mortal/physical selves, we had better have developed an ethereal “mindset” to help us deal with living in the “spiritual” side of things.

Progress in Pro/Engineer – Lotus/Caterham

I’m still chugging away on my Pro/Engineer drawing of a Lotus 7 S2 chassis. I’m incorporating some Caterham as well as some DSK enhancements, as well as some things my wee brain thinks would be good.

It’s not finished yet, but it’s coming.

The real chassis is also progressing slowly in the garage. I hope to be mounting the roll bar and the cockpit sides. I can’t finalize the transmission tunnel until I finalize the transmission. *sigh* Nothing money can’t fix.
