Out of My Mind for 5 May 2009

[T]here is a test to determine whether someone is toxic or nourishing in your relationship with them. Here is the test: You have spent some time with this person, either you have a drink or go for dinner or you go to a ball game. It doesn’t matter very much but at the end of that time you observe whether you are more energised or less energised. Whether you are tired or whether you are exhilarated. If you are more tired then you have been poisoned. If you have more energy you have been nourished. The test is almost infallible and I suggest that you use it for the rest of your life. — Milton Glaser

Anger is the feeling that makes your mouth work faster than your mind. — Evan Esar

The trouble with America is that there are far too many wide-open spaces surrounded by teeth. — Charles Luckman

Modern police action (more here):

Cop-neighbor puts neighbor’s stuff that annoys him for sale on Craigslist, people come and steal the stuff.

Cop zaps little kids with 50,000 volts for no reason, gets canned, wonders why.

Nino (“I’m a hard-liner on established law and precedents except when party duty dictates otherwise“) Scalia: Only Nino Scalia deserves privacy, none of you do. (More here.)

Amazing: proposed law would make it illegal for people over 60 to consent to posing naked.

Need birth control? Here:

Freedom to worship wrongly limited in Sweden.

I don't know why, but this gets to me in some way for some reason. No explanation. (For the story about it, click on the image.)

Shame on Obama. There is no excuse for this. Well, besides the obvious one of where Our Leaders’ loyalties lie. And does anyone really expect anything to come from this, that it isn’t just yet more empty talk??

Sabretooth: Mac user.

A history of Pentagon inefficiency and waste.

Who really cut off Van Gogh’s ear?

I love this photo, and today it’s newsworthy (at least to CBS, if not you and me):

CBS' FTC fine sent back to the lower court by the Supremes. (Click on photo (anywhere) for the details.)
