Really, I will have something here soon!+ Philip's SUV theory
Big apologies to you loyal readers for not having anything new here in the last few days. There have been plenty of news items to piss me off but I've been so tired from pulling all-nighters that I haven't had the energy to write about them. So for now, I leave you with the following revelation from reader Philip Pangrac, who is apparently just as paranoid as I am:
OK, earlier today I was writing a paper about how the Renaissance only affected an elite minority while the masses were still toiling as they did in medieval era, while also comparing that era to today when an elite minority enjoys the good life while the masses are not as well off (to put it nicely), and at one point an idea came into my head explaining why SUVs are so freaking huge: it's so the people driving them are lifted off the ground and can't see the homeless people lying in the gutters, thus making them feel unhappy (damn those homeless people). My mind then remembered the set up of all the buildings in the Jetsons, which are basically round buildings balanced on poles lifted so high into the air that you can't see the ground. So the way I see it now, SUVs are the first step to the Jetsons era, where white people are so high off the ground you don't see any minorities, homeless people, gay/lesbian/bi's, or other "unsavory characters". Or maybe they'd all been killed off before the Jetsons took place.
