Take ‘lava mice’. I know about sugar mice, computer mice, field mice, but lava mice? There’s a huge area of Federal Reserve land given over to residential care for them, it’s like Area 51 only full of beach houses. The new Tim Burton features them, the “lavam ice” and “lavam eyes” and “laav amice”, and some Barry White. I think actually we’re drunk right now. Or should be. Shit is OK. We’re OK. Florida Police Kill Naked Man as He Chews on Another Man’s Face. The documentary made me feel like I should forgo the PhD & just work for an environmental regulation group or something. Tonight, amusement park. Also, what's up with so many women wearing neon pink shirts lately? Everyday I see another woman wearing neon pink. Who is Batman, really? This is the most beautiful stool sample I have ever see / N. A stool sampler could search her whole life for a specimen half this perfect. Sadly, I have to remain a god. I reinvent the solar powered flash light every night. Numerological convictions, as we see, can rapidly crumble once a simple fissure appears in our delicate arrangement. I’m in Gros Jean and it’s Sunday. Next to a waterfall actually. Dreaming too. Is this not activist enough for you. s you will see below, rather than appear with beautifully dilated pupils, I present to you some flowering datura with a dorky glare in my safety goggles, the better to protect me (and you!) from mortal vanity and likewise from the more pathogenic aspects of those beauties. We cut their hair off. Chew on the breasts. Paint their bodies. Slip a condom over their heads and dip them in Spaghettios. We are never quite so inventive in imagining our own bodies as when we encounter this sterile, unreal version of femininity. Our first canvas. Our first manifestation. Our first bout of hostility or reverence. One girl crying because the other has her Barbie in her mouth. Now a highly experienced sniper can do this in his head. There are similar dedicated devices that cost about $7,000. But BulletFlight is affordable, does the job and appeals to inexperienced snipers, hunters, recreational shooters and those who are just curious. The software costs $12. If you want to actually use it, you need to buy a protective case ($50) for the iPod, and a device ($25) that attaches it to the rail found on most sniper rifles and high end hunting rifles. So for shooting purposes, the entire kit costs you about $90. An iPod Touch (8 gigabyte version) sells for under $200. There is some concern that the light from the iPod Touch screen might give away the sniper’s position at night. But you can set the light level on the Touch, so it probably won’t be a problem. Besides, you are using BulletFlight (or the competing iSnipe) for long range shots (300 meters or more), so the light from the display won’t be a major risk. Or a form of literacy, for literacy as a uniform thing, a single kind of learned capacity, has been well and truly debunked, as archaeologists have made sense of the data they possess that show multiple forms of script and signs within script ‘domains’; they have also come to terms with such discoveries as that of Nippur and Isin, where the majority of houses so far excavated have turned up texts.
