What is your wish?

Postby DE FACTO » Tue Dec 23, 2003 9:02 pm

I know it's that time of year that wishes are the quest of the norm, but I was thinking that there are wishes that need to be granted throughout the year.
Ok...so world peace and "I wish DE FACTO would go away" are not wishes that are not common. ( ha. ) but seriously.....what do you wish for this year and next?

And hey, this is'nt a holiday thing.

I'm putting myself out on a limb here after gathering the atmosphere on the eplaya.

I like this message board and wish there would be less bickering and more content.

That and world peace obviously.

Happy holidays to all.

I think dvdburner is misunderstanding the nimbuses that lurk and respond on the eplaya.

Just so you understand dvd, it's all good.

Oh, and I wish the best for Bob and everybody on the eplaya in the new year and for many years to come.

(just so you know, I posted this post before I read the post of Bob. Not expecting that Bob was going to post what he had posted. I thought I was posting ths message after my post but Bobs came up first.)

P.S. please note. I never deleted any of my post as some would like to claim about my previous blank posts.

Note.....they do not have "Last edited by DE FACTO on " in any of my blank posts. Unlike others that have edited their posts. (we need not get into who has and who has'nt.)

That means that i never deleted any of my posts, as some here would like to claim and others actually have done.

That means that there was a reason for the blank posts.

Hummmmm......wonder what the story was behind the blank posts.


Happy happy to all. :lol:

I wish all those whining about the current geo-political situations would actually develop viable solutions instead of pointing out the problems.

I think everyone should be made to pee in cups. It's hard to fight or argue when you're holding a big'o cup of piss. There problem solved.

I agree with your sentiments Joel, however, I think the problem is that there are NO solutions to Geo Political problems. Geo Politics are motivated by incomprehensible amounts of money, power and greed. It's a complete waste of time. Instead focus on your community, your neighborhood, your street. On that level, you can make a profound difference. Maybe that difference will reverberate out and affect more changes. Let's hope so.

Just have more chai. As you sit there drinking it you’re not talking which gives your brain time to think about a problem instead of commenting on it. And if it's made right you start thinking about how good it is and forget about the other problems for a bit.

I suggest you test that theory at the monkey cages next time you visit the zoo. I also advise you to wear a rain suit.

And by the way, insurance companies already are forcing employers and employees to pee in cups for urinalysis.

If everyone made to pee in a cup before a witness
were to pee poorly, spraying hither & yon and requiring
frequent coaxing via self-genitalia massage, it may be possible
to force the cost of witnessed urine collection so high that we may
eradicate excretion espionage, and go back to smuggling clean samples
duct-taped under ones arm-pit.

That is my wish.

I wish i were not peed upon with my demise
an indicator of life. Do you know how freaking primative that is?!

It is very much like takinig a suspected witch & placing stones upon
her/his chest to see if s/he floats.

It is NOT healthy for me to be peed on. No one, not even ONE
person has washed my fur afterwards. They just walk away, wondering
how my surviving the yellow stink affects THEM.

I wish I could punch that annoying sit-n-sleep commercial guy who screeches in my ear nearly every damned day multiple times a day.

"We'll beat any advertised price, or your mattress is FREEEE-(punch!)OOOGHhhhunnn... pantpantpantogod..."

Makes me feel warm just thinking about it. For exta bonus points, I like to picture a wedding style receiving line of people waiting to punch him repeatedly until he learns not to be so annoying...

For the New Year, I wish for my life to continue on the road I am currently taking and for my relationships to continue to be nurished and for them to grow into something stronger and more fulfilling. For the first time in years, I have finally started to feel at ease and peace with myself and the world in general and I want this great feeling to continue, I owe it all to one very special person......you know who you are.... :P
HAPPY EVER AFTER FINALLY CAME MY WAY!

This is a remark on another currently infamous thread which I refuse to post on any more because it then gets, in a back handed way, my support:

The Iraqi Information Ministe...errr..Marion has already tried to put her spin on things, but it's too late.


These people give me the creeps. I wish though to look them in the eye and tell them that. It's breathtaking to me that they could ever think I would listen to them when they make such gutter-inspired remarks as the one above. (Come on- equating some worker from Burning man to the Iraqi Information Minister -the guy in charge of covering up that the Kurds were gassed? Is that really how they think? )

How can the Reno Gazette Reporter even give these people the time of day? Alas, perhaps our enthusiastic response probably helped indirectly.

We were, after all, a little test bed and we gave them exactly the attention they wanted -me included- so we were a perfect little case study-a little proof of concept that they could stir something up) I'm sure that the reporter was pointed to our threads as background even though they werent cited in the final article. I think I should refrain from posting on those threads as it just acknowledges some legitmiacy to that Neon club's efforts to paint itself as an environmental organization .

My other wish is that people who are intending to respond to the Reno Gazette piece contact the Reno Gazette reporter directly and write proper, level headed-even tempered- refutations point by point - in hard copy, sending pictures posted from the neon site etc (I know you all have screen shots) and other things surfaced about these so-called environmentalists, AND that they also point out that statements like those above are the kind of rhetoric that members of this so called 'organization' use to describe their opponents. I hope the Reno Gazette is urged to consider their sources of info.
