    That was as good as deer guts on a door knob.

    (I blame Buttercup for the thoughtfulness of your essay, Frank.)

    With 1.21 jigowatts I’ll fix those little pipsqueaks from the future! Me, and my hover-converted car!

    This goes very well with my quantum field theory that it is only ever now. It is never the past, nor is it ever the future. Those are fictions of mediocre minds that just can’t handle the truth. Now is all we have. Thus and/or therefore, we should go about our business of getting as much stuff now as possible. That is why it is called “the present”.

    P.S. Yes, I know that period belongs inside those double quotes but I am making a statement. Some grammar rules are stupid.

    P.P.S. the deer guts comment concerns me greatly.

    My parents always told me that the reason they scrimped and saved was so I could have more than they did. My husband and I drove our cars into the ground went without in style clothes and nights out so our children would have better than we have had. It makes me want want to cry when I think of the mess we’ve allowed the government to foist on our children, our children’s children, …………… We should be ashamed.

    Jimmy, I already tried to assist you with your quantum field theory mind with my “jumping off the roof” experiment. Math says that you will never hit the ground and Quantum Physics loves math and stuff! But did you play along…noooooooooo! You didn’t trust the Quantum world and jump did you? You would still be falling had you jumped. 1/2 way, then 1/2 of that and then 1/2 of that to infinity. You can’t hit the ground silly!!!

    Don’t let anyone know, but I’m trying right now to split an atom in my kitchen! I’ll let you know how it g….

    By the way, I loved this essay from Frank J. Even though he is “The Man” and all, he does write ok I guess. I hate the future people too. Let them pay for everything! We want ours and theirs now!!! Muwahahahahah! I’m a terrorist that is converting to the dark side…

  7. Jimmy says:

    I agree, Fly. I should have said “better than deer guts on a door knob.”

    ussjimmycarter – you might be interested to know that my oldest son is gathering the parts for a cold fusion experiment in his kitchen. I kid you not.

    Speaking of jumping off of roofs, Mr. Smarty Quantum, hows about an answer to this one:

    Σ (1/n) = ??
    n=1 to ∞

    Didn’t people of the future already send us an evil robot? And he became governor of California? And then even HE couldn’t stop spending like an out-of-control machine designed just to spend money. So even people of the future can’t get this right.

    STOP SPENDING. Why is this such a difficult concept?

  9. Loomdog says:

    I now better understand the slogan from a couple of months back of “Winning the Future”. the Dems seem to have already come to the same conclusion as FrankJ.

    What in the Sam Hill is wrong with deer guts on a doorknob?

    Deer guts will attract bears, foxes, ‘coons, perhaps buzzards. All of which are good eatin’.

  11. Corona says:

    Frank, AOS picked up on your PM article. I read it. I laughed projectile. That was a damn good one.

  12. Fly says:

    @Jimmy: the answer is a slow infinity. It would’ve been a fast infinity, but you put deer guts all over it.

    @Marko: you have alleviated my concerns, thank you.
