    People who try to limit possibilities by their preconceptions.

    People who assume their assumptions are truth.

    People who think they know things about others which they cannot know.

    It is too damn difficult to get food without too much salt and/or sugar.

    I am out of whiskey until day after tomorrow.

    People do not say what they mean & mean what they say.

    I know where nearly everything is in the store then they rearrange things. 2 or 3 months later I again know where nearly everything is then they rearrange things again.

    People who are compelled to try to defend something long after they realize it was wrong.

    In order of personal significance:
    - television "seasons" that start and end at random intervals
    - biweekly garbage pickup: I lose track and miss one, the stuff sits in my porch for four weeks in 30 degree heat
    - the dwindling attention-span of readers
    - the suborning and sabotaging of words
    - bottled water
    - the global resurgence of fascism


    I wouldn't worry about the bugs. Check your windshield: still clean after a hundred highway km.

    Some of John Cale's arrangements--particularly, when he does new arrangements of his own work. "I'm Waiting for the Man," done in the style of Theatre of Eternal Music/Dream Syndicate--except, made accessible, simply doesn't work.

    Going back 20 odd years (Darwin Australia) metal bins, two, owned by householder, collected twice a week

    10 to 15 years ago Wheele bins, owned by contractor, less capacity, once a week collection, you clean them

    Me leave them permanently out for collection, never clean them

    Threatened at various times to follow the council regulations and to take them onto my land within 24 hours of collection. Council ignored

    I put it to one inspector
    • Not my bin
    • Not my storage responsibility
    • Not my cleaning problem
    • Force me to store
    • I want storage and cleaning fees
    • Insurance damages if hurt or catch disease from bin
    15+ years remaining out for collection I think they have given up

    Yeah

    Sports focus much too much on sponsor advertising. Try to find the football on the field with all that neon busy-ness on the perimeter wall. Or identify the jerseys, for that matter. Who's playing today - Toyota vs Nikon ?

    Confetti parades.

    We used to have large bins in the alley, one for every four households or so. To collect them, one trip down the alley and about six stops per block.

    Now we have smaller bins, one per household, about 1\4 the size so fair enough - but collecting them takes two trips down the alley, once in each direction, and about twenty-four stops per block. Government cost-cutting.

    Speaking of government cost-cutting: I once worked for a government department that cut costs by getting rid of thirty employees. Then another department hired the same thirty people to do the same work for the same pay and the same benefits - and they charged a 15% administration fee to do it.

    Personally, I'm glad when the government wastes money because I can't afford the cost-cutting.

    I can't get this scary thought out my head; I believe it's a true story. Anyway, a man wanted to live free in wild away from others' He gets lost in the Alaskan wilderness. He comes a across an old abandoned camper. Being hungry he takes shelter and hoping someone might actually come along. He's basically starving at some point...

    He writes a note, saying he is around and went to pick some berries if anyone happens to come by. If your a hunter, alone and happen by the shelter and see the note. What would you do when no one comes back to the shelter. The mans body was found some distance away. The mans ordeal is scary to think about by itself, but what if you stumbled upon that note in a decriped?

    I think I'd be scared out of my wits. Not being lost, I think I'd be something to possibly let the man know that there was human behavior afoot. Then go and seek aid.

    Just thought I'd post this to magically ease the thought.

    In the wilds of Alaska, aid is not to be sought nearby. However, hunters, trappers and natives are not fazed by the odd carcasse. At the coroner's morgue, we used to get suicides from the woods, in all states of decomposition. The people who find them don't scream, drop their flask and run around like decapitated chickens; they phone it in and keep truckin'.

    PS - the idjit ate wild parsnip or something. It was a young idjit, with no experience of the woods.

    On topic,
    from the adjoining thread:
    Salesmen who approach an elderly female with "How can I help you today, young lady?"
    (My 82-year-old friend smiled sweetly, replied, "You can't." and bought her car from the dealer across the road, who was simply polite.)
    Nobody - not children, not intellectually or physically challenged people, not old people, nobody - like to be patronized.
