Got some time on your hands…?

Worth watching, or at least letting it run in the background.

I don’t understand people that think private, for-profit health insurance is net good for society:

My favorite part is where these guys sit in front of congress and say they will not stop rescinding policies for mistakes made in good faith by the insured.

Write your senators and representatives. How can this bullshit possibly get any worse?

For all you Transformer Fans…

I didn’t go see the movie, because it got panned by the critics, and because I’m still scarred from Optimus Prime’s death in the 80s cartoon movie.

Found this, though, and it’s pretty frikkin’ awesome. Kudos to the creators.

Lost in a Maze…

In the cave, Saitan snuffed the torch out. He pressed into my arm. He pulled me close, and wrapped his hand over my mouth to keep me from screaming. Shh…

I heard the footfalls, steady as stones.

A flash in the dark – a moving shadow against ghost light – and Saitan held me, and hushed me.

Like a dead tree and a lizard and a man, it poked and prodded so carefully upon the bush of the ghost light.

We watched it, Saitan and me, prodding the branches and the fountain of light like a gardener. Under the long, spindly fingers – talons? – of the monster the bush seemed to expand a little and tremble with ecstasy.

We waited. It moved on, down and down the cave, beyond our light.

We waited longer.

Saitan let go. He ran his hand along my hair. He whispered something in my ear. Don’t fear, he had said.
