Skating Chimp

I didn't really feel like posting anything today. There is news of the possibility of reviving the manned space program to the Moon and perhaps other planets, but the knowledge that our government is spending like never before dulls the excitement I feel. Still the possibility is enticing. I'll beleive it when I see it.

There is the news that people are leaving the workforce in droves amid crappy job growth. Bush proposes an immigration relief plan that feels like pandering and rankles some conservatives enough that they're beginning to call it Bush's Coyote Charter.

Even this RealDog site (a parody of RealDolls) only got a slight chuckle.

Sure, twisted asian interactive Flash animation is always welcome.

But the link I clicked that most represented how I feel this Friday morning, was the skating chimpanzee picture.

Can I get an "Amen?"

Nice psychedelic Flash cartoon. Amazing what can make perfect sense to your mind. I'd like to see a Children's Museum filled with this stuff.

I might get excited by the prospect of sending people back to the moon, or to Mars. But the thought of Dumbass (or his successors) establishing a base there makes my skin crawl. I feel pretty confident that this isn't about science or education. I'll be a lot more enthusiastic about all of this when there's an administration in place that I somewhat trust.
