My Inner Hippie

You are 4% hippie.

Ok, you conservative soul. Do you even believe in global warming? Loosen that necktie a little, and try some organic food. It actually does taste better. And go to a farmer’s market–they’re fun.

As I was filling it out, I was actually worried about some items. Some of my activities could be considered hippie-ish, like:

  • Recycle aluminum cans
  • Use Freecycle
  • Read Poetry
  • Save my brass
  • Dumpster Dive

Thankfully, they are all easily explained. I recycle cans because the local scrap place will take them and actually give me money.

Freecycle is great because “it’s a great way to score free stuff.” Also a free way to have people haul stuff you don’t need anymore.

I read poetry as well as many other things. A great man once told me, “To be a leader, you need to be a reader.”

Brass should be self-explanatory

Dumpster diving now-a-days is mostly limited to the times I spot something salvageable off the bat, but still a valid way to get things on the cheap.

Also, isn't the PC term "Climate-change" now?

The New Uniform

I was wandering about the web, and was snagged into retaking the Libertarian Purity Test. (I scored an 87)

This got me to thinking about wookiee suits, when, lo and behold: THIS!

With all of the ‘crazy’ things I apparently believe, as well as being a Star Wars fan from the age of five; I’m really hoping that this will be available at a price that isn’t too prohibitively expensive.

Another One for the Pile

I read and interesting quote the other day.

“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.”
Mahatma Gandhi (Autobiography, by M.K. Gandhi, p.446)

I must confess an amount of ignorance concerning Gandhi and his life. I’ve heard him referenced before, and had a vague notion of what he stood for, but have never really studied him, even in passing. I’ll be adding his autobiography to the ever growing pile of books I need to consume.
