As Mrs. is technically the abbreviation for Mistress, it should come as no surprise that Drs. is the abbreviation for Distress.

In those days Caesar ordered that the whole world should be counted and taxed.

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

We get our tax cycle from the Romans.

That being the case:

Two people who I had previously supposed to hold me in less regard than the dog gets in a Jack London story have decided to add me to their circles here.

I do give good interesting.

Still being stalked by MSJapan at Wikipedia, though.

I don't know when I have ever been so angry.

State Farm has sent a letter saying that I have been judged "at least 51% responsible" for a collision where the other driver pulled out from behind another vehicle after I was already in the street, gunned his engine while looking down (the sun was shining toward him and I never saw his face, just the top of his head) and hit me at a speed well in excess of the speed limit (even after hitting me and spinning me around he still had enough momentum to go over the curb, rip up a tree, go over the retaining wall of our garden, and stop only when he finally hit the car in the neighbor's driveway).

And since State Farm also decided in 2000 to settle with a woman who had made an obviously fraudulent claim, I have come to an ugly surmise:

It's cheaper to let people with the youth and strength to lie and keep lying cheat ill, older customers than it is to fight false claims.

Create Your Own Urban Myth-- I Did!

Of all the bullshit explanations people come up with for things they're too lazy to find out, my favorite type is the acronym explanation. Fornication Under Consent of King, or For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, are claimed to be the origin of the word fuck. It in fact derives from ficken, a German word meaning "hit"... which tells us more about the Germans than I, for one, wanted to know.

Anyway, I've come up with my own bullshit acronym story.

Prior to the Plague of 1665-1666, there were innumerable rats in England's swamps and mires. The plague wiped out most of the rat population, leaving open an ecological niche which was swiftly filled up by a hitherto-rare amphibian known as a "grenouille". It had been brought over by immigrants after the Norman Conquest, but remained rare. When it replaced swamp rats after the Great Fire, it was marked down as "Funny Rat, Only Green" or FROG for short.

The association with these creatures is also why the French are known as frogs.

Aren't you proud of me?

I've been going back over my LJ posts, and reposting Whatworthy stuff that didn't get any reply when nobody knew me. I really did send it, and have not been harassed since. As follows:

This is important enough that I thought I should share it.

Jury Commissioner

or representative thereof:


I have already sent you a certificate from my physician, indicating that I suffer from fibromyalgia. This is a genetic fault which usually limits my ability to function to approximately three hours per day before I lose my ability to concentrate without strain, or pay a price of weeks of pain and confusion while I recover. It is not curable and it does not get better. Having received a juror summons, my first assumption was that, since you had that information, someone must have carelessly thrown it away.

Then I realized the truth.

The court system is clearly a criminal conspiracy, designed to falsely imprison scapegoats for the misdeeds of the privileged. It obviously furthers this purpose to force people who cannot be certain of their judgment to sit as jurors. Given that the State of California refuses to recognize fibromyalgia as the crippling disability which it is, and therefore I cannot afford to pay for an office visit to get a certificate to replace the one you have so conveniently "misplaced," I can only conclude that this corruption extends all the way to the legislature.

In the circumstances, though I truly cannot spare the money for the cost of mass transit, I feel it is only my duty as a loyal American to show up and inform everyone I meet of my conclusions. I feel certain that some of them will be able to overcome their brainwashing, and automatically vote to acquit whatever innocent victim has been framed as the "defendant".

Unless, of course, you can come up with some pretext for deeming me unsuited to jury duty. Then my goal of furthering the cause of true justice will be thwarted.

Don't you wish that, just once, Spock had rounded on McCoy and said:

"Who gives a FUCK what you think? You don't know anything! The machines in Sickbay do all the work! The only reason you're in the crew is all the medical lobbyists at the UN are women from Orion!"


I'd have paid an extra buck to see a movie with that in it.

I don't think Kirk ever actually liked McCoy.

I wouldn't encourage one of my friends to spend years trying to needle an uncontrolled emotional response out of someone I know can benchpress a Harley.

Cynthia Rothrock is a fine actress.

And I'm not just saying that because I know she could snap me in half and sling me over her shoulder like a horseshoe.

But her name makes her sound like she ought to be the long-lost heiress to the cursed Flintstone Diamond.
