Also Obligatory...  
Yeah, what he said.

I got into a fight with the kids in my Japanese class who think the war is "something that has to be done". Bullshit, I told them, and I gave them as much evidence to state that this is otherwise as I could in the 5 minutes before class. Kobayashi-sensei even asked what I was so fired up about when she came into the classroom, and we talked for a few minutes in the best Japanese we could about it.

"Hantai desu ka, Kennedy-san" --"Do you oppose it, Ms. Kennedy?"
"Hai, hantai desu. Tottemo shimpai desu" --"Yes, I oppose it. I think it's very worriesome"
"Scott-san, hantai desu ka?" --"Ms. Scott, do you oppose it?"
"Hai, hantai desu kedo, daijoubu to omoimasu" - "Yes, I oppose it, but I think it's alright." She followed in English with "You do what you gotta do."

Apparently "Absense of proof is not proof of absense," is a good enough cause for some to support the loss of American and Iraqi lives. Good for you, I'll pass.

Someone get me off this damned (and I do mean as in doomed) planet.
Mood: upset and empty

The planet's just healing itself. No other life form before ours has acted in such a self-interested and sinister way almost all of the time. These are the end times for this species on this planet. Oh well, sucks for us, eh? In a couple hundred million years, there won't be any evidence that we were ever here.

That was brave of you. Good job for discussing it and not fading into the background like so many people do these days.

Much love and respect to you.
