Post Crazyiness contest just for kicks.
It's my birthday in two days!

30 years old. I could be on that old show "thirty something" next year, and i would fit right in.

Besides the obvious lament for lost youth, what should i do for my birthday?

Write your rediculous Hunter S. Thompson esque ideas below!

Have you tried that? Looking for answers?
Or have you been content to be terrified of a thing you know nothing about?

Are you pushing your own short comings on us and safely hating them from a distance?

Is this the virtue of faith? To never change your mind: especially when you should?

Young Earth Creationists take offense at the idea that we have a common heritage with other animals. Why is being the descendant of a mud golem any better?

Confidence being an expectation built on past experience, evidence and extrapolation to the future. Faith being an expectation held in defiance of past experience and evidence.

Have a good long cry. Then buy a sports car and some viagra. I'm sorry for your loss, man.

Rise at dawn, and go and find a prominent point of land, and there bow down repeatedly, thanking the forces of the universe, whatever they may be, that barring unfortunate circumstance, you will live another half a century yet, and see many wonderful things. Further, you still have the opportunity to change course several more times, until you find the one you like. You can sit back and grin with the thought that you will be around long enough that eventually this time will seem like a distant memory.

Then go out and drink some beer. I recommend McEwan’s Ale, if you can get it. The Scots don’t fool around when it comes to important matters like the brewing process.

Do as the Gethenians in le Guin's Left Hand of Darkness do: "It is always the Year One here. Only the dating of every past and future year changes each New Year's Day, as one counts backwards or forwards from the unitary Now." So you would always be just Now. Rather Zen, isn't it?


(And do please stay away from the temptation of buying a Hawaian shirt and red sports car)
