    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Meh, if dolls keep people from going after children (and if this doesn't ever reach the point of sufficiently advanced AI being involved) then I'm not gonna get worked up about it as long the things aren't near me. It's mildly stomach turning but at the end of the day, a doll isn't a person (again barring application of sufficiently advanced AI), so I'm not that worried about them. My only real question is do they increase or decrease the number of actual children abused. If they lead to a decrease then subsidize the damn things with tax payer money. If they lead to an increase then purge them with fire and sword. If there's no measurable effect then I don't care as long as I'm not hearing about it.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    About the only thing I've seen from the little bit I've researched is the dolls appear to be coming from China and a few "new" people have been revealed by the purchase of the dolls. As to increase or decrease I guess not enough data to suggest one way or the other. However, one of the marketing slants is that they do hope it will save a real child by having a perp purchase a fake child.

    My thought as well. If it is true that sexual attraction children is inherent, and attempts to change it would require mental mutilation, then the dolls would be a reasonable surrogate, if it reduces the number of actual molestations. I, personally, find it distasteful, but much less so than actual child molesting.

    Today was a better day. Thinking about going to see Jigsaw tomorrow. I've been wanting to see it since it came out.

    I remember looking forward to that movie and then liking the first half of it. Then it kinda fell apart for me. The kid was good though.

    Haley Joel Osment worked with Kevin Spacey in "Pay It Forward". I wonder if we'll hear anything from him.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom?

    I found out that I was accepted to West Virginia University. I'm going back to school one last time to get my dream degree in paleontology. I have to take geology as my degree but specialize in paleontology. WVU is a big school here in Morgantown and in West Virginia generally, so it's really exciting for me to be accepted before the Spring quarter comes. I can't wait!

    Congrats! That should be cool!

    I got my bloodwork results back and all is well. My liver must've done some serious regeneration since my college days!

    Went to the clinic today to see about a sinus infection. Had to wait about two hours to see a doctor and she confirmed I have a sinus and ear infection. Gosh I hurt so much. On the plus side, I got my WVU letter and I am calling tomorrow to set up an appointment to see an advisor from the geology department. Pray for me that I get in soon.

    I'm miserable and always exhausted. I'm really hating this living arrangement and these stupid classes.
