Just Look at the Pretty Picture, and Try Not to Get too Much Blood on the Wall as You Bash Your Head into it Repeatedly.
Posted May 5, 2004 - 13:21:00

Lookie, a rock.  Pretty rock.  Rock can't do stupid things because Rock is just a rock...Okay, so this is the plan: I'm just going to look at pretty nature photos for the rest of my life and pretend that nothing else is happening. I'm going to pretend that people have the maturity level beyond that of a five year old's, and every thing will be okay. Why? Because look, water is pouring over that rock. Isn't it pretty?

Pretty rock. Pretty rock can't do stupid things, because the rock doesn't have the ability to do anything. Why? Because rock is a rock. Yay for the rock.

In all seriousness, I am amazed at the idiocy of somethings happening in my world right now, and believe it or not I'm not talking about anything related to the last two posts. I have yet to rant about it in the blog yet, because it relates to a two hour meeting I sat through last night.

Two hours.

Two hours that I want back. That's right, I'm asking every single person who was there to somehow return to me my wasted time. The meeting was for the F|_1P51DE, and it's really frustrating me. The reason I say F|_1P51DE in pseudo-1337speak is because I don't want this showing up on Google, when Joe Schmoe comes looking for my paper. Let me tell you, this is not the image of a newsmagazine that we want to present to advertisers... yeach.

Some of you may remember a little while back when I mentioned an article mighty editor Brian wanted to print in our little news publication. It was a humor piece on cunnilingus, that I didn't find all that great. But as I've had time to think about it, my problem with the article is merely that I don't think it's that good, not that the subject matter is wrong to talk about. As quality control is purely Brian's job, I am not qualified to make that judgement. But, apparently, many of my now-colleagues at the F|ip51D3 did have a problem with the subject matter. Now this is their perrogative, and we do have a place for this kind of discussion at this annoyingly overly democratic publication. The problem is though, is that the vast majority of people arguing were unable to emotionally detatch themselves from the situation. This is a newsmagazine, and if you are unable to see even this simplest things from at least a semiobjective point of view, then you have no place producing one.

All people were talking from were emotional, gut reactions. Practically no one who was against the article (and honestly some people who were for the article as well) were able to get past their own anger, and actually discuss the issue at hand beyond yelling like a bunch of five year olds.

So, rather than worry about this, I'm just going to look at the pretty picture of a rock, and maybe think about moving to Liechtenstein or something. Liechtenstein has a population of about 33 thousand you know, and is roughly the geographical size of Washington DC. I'd be able to hide out in a mountain, and watch Swiss television... yeah. Now to just learn German...
