Holiday wishes, courtesy of Steve Martin back when he was funny:

If I had one wish that I could wish this holiday season, it would be that all the children to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.

If I had two wishes I could make this holiday season, the first would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing in the spirit of harmony and peace. And the second would be for 30 million dollars a month to be given to me, tax-free in a Swiss bank account.

You know, if I had three wishes I could make this holiday season, the first, of course, would be for all the children of the world to get together and sing, the second would be for the 30 million dollars every month to me, and the third would be for encompassing power over every living being in the entire universe.

And if I had four wishes that I could make this holiday season, the first would be the crap about the kids definitely, the second would be for the 30 million, the third would be for all the power, and the fourth would be to set aside one month each year to have an extended 31-day orgasm, to be brought out slowly by Rosanna Arquette and that model Paulina-somebody, I can't think of her name. Of course my lovely wife can come too and she's behind me one hundred percent here, I guarantee it.

Wait a minute, maybe the sex thing should be the first wish, so if I made that the first wish, because it could all go boom tomorrow, then what do you got, y'know? No, no, the kids, the kids singing would be great, that would be nice. But wait a minute, who am I kidding? They're not going to be able to get all those kids together. I mean, the logistics of the thing is impossible, more trouble than it's worth! So -- we reorganize!

Here we go. First, the sex thing. We go with that. Second, the money. No, we got with the power second, then the money. And then the kids. Oh wait, oh jeez, I forgot about revenge against my enemies! Okay, I need revenge against all my enemies, they should die like pigs in hell! That would be my fourth wish. And, of course, my fifth wish would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. Thank you everybody and Merry Christmas.

Best thing on SNL in years.. not a high bar I know, but this was excellent:

Oh yeah, something else I've been thinking about. I've been listening to a lot of different music and I was thinking, at what point will all possible combinations of melodies be used? even when figuring other possible scales it seems that there exists some finite number of combinations available before one begins to repeat previously constructed tunes? Meaning, how sure can you be, if you write a piece of music, that you are not inadvertently copying someone else's work? Is there an end to music? (I hope not...)

I've looked over the blog a few times and I've been trying to properly phrase replies and comments to previous posts such that they mostly have gone by and may be out of mind.

so, to not lose more time, i will write a few words from whatever comes to mind.

In ref. to sony's post 12/12:
I can't figure out where this guy is coming from. Either this is done tongue-in-cheek or this guy truly dislikes doctors. If this is supposed to be some kind of joke, he probably needs to work on his delivery. If this is coming from his true feelings (and the other paper he references seems to point this way...), this guy is pretty sad. But if he doesn't think doctors help or are of any use, he doesn't have to go see them.

ref. s 11/21:
I want one of those too, but I'm not paying a scalper, and it's not worth my time to sit in the cold. sounds like a good birthday present...

ref. s 11/15:

This is the post I really wanted to comment on, and I have been thinking about it for awhile now, especially in reference to the concept of the "tragedy of the commons." This post got me thinking about children and what is needed to raise children in general. With respect to medicine, if you have money (even a bit), having children is rather expensive. If you have no money, having children is free and, in fact, beneficial, since many goods and services are offered to you for free. Thus, for a person of modest to comfortable means, children are financially disadvantageous more or less. People at the poverty level are presented with incentives to having children, and since some benefits expire at certain age levels, they are motivated to have more children to continue said benefits. And what of these children? If you believe in the cycle of poverty, they repeat the process, and their population will grow exponentially, leaving a large group of individuals which are in need of goods and services, with little or no contribution of their own.

I have other thoughts, but I'll send this out and see what you guys say (expecting to be flamed...). Maybe you can give me an alternative viewpoint. I'd love to discuss this.

Best lawsuit evar: Suing Arm & Hammer for their failure to warn customers that using their product to cook up some crack could lead to a long jail sentence.

(3) Does Your Honor think that [Arm & Hammer] is not aware and have not been informed as to the harsh penalty and seriousness and trouble that this product pose to society when a person buys this baking soda legally over the counter shelf and mix this, or is it just fine and dandy?
