the day the earth stood still

September 5, 2008 at 4:57 pm (universe, world)

september 10, 2008 should hail a landmark day for science and it quite literally make the earth (and all time for that matter) stand still.  while i continue to ramble on with my notions of star trek glory i will get down to the real matter at hand.  the large hadron collider (lhc) will be up and operational over near france.  this basically means (in my limited scientific knowledge) that scientists will be able to better understand how the universe might have first started.  proponents against the lhc have attempted to induce panic amongst the ignorant by making statements about black holes tearing the earth apart and having the entire world converted to strange matter. eh, if it happens we won’t be around to complain, will we?  might as well hit the switch and see what happens.  who knows, it could be the first ever time machine… you never know…

responsibility

August 28, 2008 at 3:41 pm (world, writing)

let me address this congregation
about my frustration
that my generation
had no dedication
to our final destination
and this needs explanation
that there is no expectation
or even a quick hesitation
with this lack of integration
and there is no preparation
or even motivation
to save this nation 

so I hope this revelation
will change this situation
but until a transformation
I leave this invitation
to form a realization
that this isolation
is actually exploitation
and despite this obfuscation
there is an obligation
for prescribed innovation
not persistent imitation
so have no trepidation
we’ll reverse this regulation
and achieve our vindication
