I don't like the Super Bowl (mainly because it has nothing to do with cereal), and not because I don't like sports (which is part of it) what I don't like is the fans. Fans of really anything. You know of course the word "fan" comes from the word "fanatic", only it is half as committed. The problem is that "Fans" are annoying, and it brings out the worst social behavior that isn't actually illegal. This is my problem with fans of any stripe (sports, sci-fi and religious (especially christian)) As fans we become more exclusive, think we are right, and demonize the other side (for those of you not familiar this is the seed of the reason for most wars). So I saw we ban fans, exclude them from society and point out their inhuman features.

No it is not Christmas (but that's because Valentines is first), but I still want things. I used to think I didn't want many things (that was my early socialist phase), but now I find that I want tons of stuff (I was cured, or infected, your choice). And all of it right now. I am a good consumer (well not really, I don't have any money, the only thing that makes me valuable to a capitalist). My mom and daddy, excuse me, my parental advertising board, raised me right (thank you Mommy Kool-Aid, and Daddy Hasbro). My problem is my paycheck (okay, my non paycheck) It doesn't play nice with my wants which are unlimited (unlike my paycheck) Slowly I am getting in touch with myself (masturbation helps) and I am learning what it is I really want (and a bit about what I need). But it is a painful and slow process that involves a lot of mistakes (many more mistakes). But mistakes and messes are the Potholes of Life that as we drive help us navigate the Road (or some smart sounding takeaway bullshit)
