What is Goodwill Used for in Smite?

I Am Really Stuffed!  August 12, 2011 – 11:08 pm
Smite

Why do we save stuff?     If I encased the entire contents of my garage in amber, I am sure that thousands of years from now,  future archeologists will come to the erroneous conclusion that people in the 21st century built shrines to themselves by continually packing their life’s stuff in boxes and storing it in a special temple called the garage.

My house, on the other hand, is fairly – fairly – clutter-free.   What it boils down to is:  I want my stuff, but I just don’t want to have to deal with it.   In this way, my stuff is like my guinea pig.    It doesn’t really do anything, but it brings me comfort to know it’s there.  (Don’t call the SPCA:   My guinea pig lives in the house.)

Now the gorgeous disclaimer afforded to most people who live in California is that very few of us have basements.  So before you start mocking the fact that our junk lives in the garage while our cars live on the street, just go on a tour of your own basement and imagine where you’d put all that stuff if your basement was filled with earth.

In my garage we have so many categories of junk that I could hold themed yard sales.    This Saturday:  outdated sports equipment.   Next Saturday:  outdated books on still-current topics. The following Saturday:  outdated electronics, featuring three free electronics’ cords with every purchase (but not the cords you need because we can’t find those).   And the final Saturday:  cans of WD-40 with only one spritz missing!

Quotations from the Freedom Crowd

'I never intend to adjust myself to the madness of militarism.'
- Martin Luther King Jr.
'However sugarcoated and ambiguous, every form of authoritarianism must start with a belief in some group's greater right to power, whether that right is justified by sex, race, class, religion, or all four.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
