    Their "circle" Gives Them Away.

    They say "even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes". So goes it with the words that come out of the zombie's mouth. Careful that you do not misclassify a zombie based on one or two sentences that appeal to your philosophies. There are 'strong zombies' that are very...

    I Need To Share This...

    ...because I'm getting to the point where I just don't know what to think anymore. I went to a big time bookstore today, and all I wanted was Shakespeare's Othello. I'm familiar with the place and the usual lack of interest and even plain manners by its employees. But this time...

    Void Creates Vacuum

    When things are missing, the void left will create a vacuum.  This vacuum is unselective in what it sucks in to fill the void.  Meaningless things will be sucked into the void.

    Democrats, Republicans, Independents.

    They are tricked by their own insecurities. They choose the "lesser of two evils" and are proud of their choice in dysfunctional candidates. Notice me. Heed what I say. I know who's better. I am zombie. Here me babble.

    The Degrees Of Ignorance

      1st degree ignorance: You're ignorant and you know it.  Most sane, stable, fairly smart people fall into this category. 2nd degree ignorance: You're ingorant and are more or less oblivious to that fact.  A babbling fool, you are.  The 'ignorance is...

    Today's Zombie 4/21/10

      As I'm leaving my neighborhood, I come upon a car.  He approaches an intersection.  He has no stop sign; the other road does.  As he enters the middle of the intersection, he looks to his right to see if anyone is coming.

    Sheeple.

    I have always called them that.  This group's icon expresses my worldview more eloquently than anything I can write.  My greatest fear is that I am becomming infected by the zombie contagion.  It's so ******* virulent.

    Zombie wants his coffee... zombie goes outside to smoke 10 times a day... zombie is a good zombie and celebrates by having a drink. Zombie deserves a break. Zombie is a proud zombie. See zombie's traits. Admire them. Zombie is a cool conformist.
