Is that a prosthetic leg crowd surfing in the center right of the pic?

It's one of the facts of life that prosthetic legs know how to have fun.

No words for this:

"I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed. I'm listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs. I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows. Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow! There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see. I should drop by the library, too. It's worth to read the poems of Forough and Shamloo again. All family pictures have to be reviewed, too. I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye. All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them. I'm two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that. My mind is very chaotic. I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure. So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them. So they know that our ancestors surrendered to Arabs and Mongols but did not surrender to despotism. This note is dedicated to tomorrow's children..."

Meanwhile, in Williamsburg, a group of young people are gathering to do an 8-ball in a public park.

Which, let's be fair, isn't without its own set of sacrifices. I mean, 8-balls are expensive. And they could get caught!

I had a teacher berate our class for not doing enough to keep Bush from getting elected for Round 2. I think I said something smart-assed like "what, and risk getting arrested and missing this class?"

I thought that guy was an asshole, but after looking at these pictures of Iranian protests, I'm feeling pretty stupid.

I remember when an eight ball was 1) a pool ball 2) a crappy mid-70s novelty fortune teller and 3) a bottle of a specific malt liquor.

The times they are a-changin'.  Back.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Buffcoat, your name wouldn't happen to be Bob Roberts, by any chance?

The next Republican president in 2012 should hope there's somehow a Democrat supermajority in place when they're elected.  There's no end to what he'll/she'll be able to accomplish!

I'm trying to see the bright side of this Scott Brown situation. Maybe this'll spur Obama into action on jobs, he'll get some easy points on the board and the Dems might pick up a couple seats in November, and be bold with it this time around.

More likely, the system is just completely broken. Which wouldn't be so bad, if we weren't facing actual existential threats like climate change, etc.

My greatest hope is that we can still get a climate/energy bill this year. It looks like Reid is committed to getting it done, and maybe Lindsey Graham can get some Republicans to go along.
