Funny, Conan, Funny/End Of The Western World Watch

The Pakistani president claimed bin Laden is hiding in Afghanistan; the Afghan president said he's in Pakistan; and President Bush said, 'I like sprinkles on my ice cream.'

on the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden

More like sprinkles on his whiskey.

BUSH'S BOOZE CRISIS (National Enquirer, 2005)

CHAVEZ CALLS BUSH DRUNK, "THE DEVIL". U.N. APPLAUDS

Venezuela official protesting treatment (9/26, Seattle P.I.)
Venezuela's foreign minister on Tuesday lodged a protest with the U.S. ambassador over his temporary detainment during the weekend at a New York airport.

A couple of reasons we can expect Chavez dead within the year...
(ripped from the San Fran Chronicle)

Chavez hosted Iran...signed more than 20 trade and investment deals

At this month's summit in Cuba of the 116-nation Non-Aligned Movement, Chavez emerged as heir apparent to the ailing Cuban President Fidel Castro...movement's members comprise two-thirds of the world's nations

Chavez has...huge oil revenues that will last for decades.

Chavez is pouring aid into Cuba and Bolivia, providing discounted oil to Caribbean and Central American nations, buying high-tech weapons from Russia and spreading Venezuelan wealth around western Africa.

Rescued Cuba's economy...In Argentina, he bought $3.1 billion in government bonds...allowing the government to pay off its debts to the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

"I view him as a threat of undermining democracy," Bush said of Chavez in a Fox News interview July 31. "And I view him as a threat."

In August, the Bush administration created a position of intelligence chief for Venezuela and Cuba.

Government documents recently obtained by the Associated Press show that opposition groups have been receiving about $5 million a year through State Department channels. The administration has refused to disclose the names of about half of the groups, saying to do so would endanger their security.

Jeremy Bigwood, an analyst at the Center for Economic Policy Research, a liberal Washington think tank, last year sued the Agency for International Development, the State Department's foreign aid arm, arguing that all such recipients should be identified because the aid programs aren't part of covert intelligence work. A ruling is expected this year.

So BASICALLY:
He's building up the rest of the world while the West is focused on the middle east. He's re-establishing working non-free market systems worldwide. Hmmm...maybe this should be filed under END OF THE WESTERN WORLD WATCH after all...

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…
