Tip for the day…

Not posting much other than this link.  Working late tonight.

If you have Steam, check out the Universe Sandbox.

Now I know of another fun activity Lemurita and I can do together besides art and tearing things apart.

Update v0.2…

I want to say something… the notion “healthcare is not a right. Its a privilege” is still dead dead wrong.

Health care is not a right, healthcare is not a privelege, healthcare is a SERVICE that you pay someone to render to you.   I pay someone to tune up my car, put roofing on my house, or neuter my dog.  I pay another type of professional to fix my broken bones, stitch me up, prescribe medicines that can help me get well.  It is a monetary transaction for services rendered.  I don’t know where this “rights” and “privelege” crap came from but it’s a load of horseshit.

I opted to keep it simple.  I know I had all thse things I was going to add but ultimately it ended up feeling crowded and made the image messy.

It has a LOT of tweaks to go but I’m kind of interested in getting the MimeSweeper going.  Lots of demand for less mime damage to the environment and the structure of society.

This is a layout prelim image - it WILL look better and the lines are all yucky-awful only temporarily. Trust me.

It is rough, it is too dark, it is busy-crowded, but darn if I don’t think it’s got good potential.

published on FOX’s “Speaker’s Lobby” was this snippet of tripe:

Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA) echoed the demands of Tea Party protesters assembled outside the Capitol building Saturday afternoon, but he had a different audience in mind: Tea Party protesters. “One of the chants is ‘Read the bill! Read the bill!’ We’re here to say the Tea Party should read the bill too,” said the congressman.

To Inslee:  Never doubt for a second that we wouldn’t – IF WE COULD.  The secrecy, the lack of details, and the rush to do something damaging in a hurry has kind of put that out of reach.  Arsewipe.

cbullitt’s suggestion (Soylent Green) to change the MimeSweeper advert line to “The Mimesweeper: You Can’t Even Hear Them Scream.” is a stroke of genius.  He’s got some minor troll infestation going on so if you want to get in on the sighting of an immature troll in the wild, hop on by.   It seems to have cleared itself up.  A troll at cbullitts is kind of like an e Coli bacterium in a tub of hot brine.  Sure they get in but they don’t thrive or even survive well there.

The mimesweeper will be a handgun with an underbarrel mounted flamethrower and side-by-side Tesla Spikes, the ammo is incindiery, and it fires two auxilliary cables with spikes to aid in running the current to the mime’s Nervous System.

Fun for the whole family!

Here’s the updated Steampunk Condom.  Needs a steam source, a valve, a big honking condom-packet analogue, and lots of fancy-shmancy lettering.  Five dollar words and bizarre typography.  The lettering is nowhere near my satisfaction at present.

I haven’t put anything substantive to say down today because I have nothing to say.

Oh, wait, I do.  I ran across another Open-Source piece of software.  If you know me even a little bit you know that I love GIMP, am totally loving Inkscape, and have a relationship with Blender 3D that has gone stagnant but was passionate at one time.

This week I found Scribus.  Open-Source desktop publishing.  Nice.  Now if only I can figure out how to use it since it has no “Help” and precious little documentation.  It uses GIMP as an external editor (if you have it) and can import Inkscape SVG files.  I like it.  I can’t use it (yet) but I like it.
