A Freeway in Hell

My thoughts on the nature of our late capitalist society. The title should give some clue what I think of that! US 101 or I-80 as metaphor for our imperatives. Besides worrying about what sort of black hole we are speeding into, I like airships. One reason being the almost inescapble desire to have one to get out of a traffic jam!

Grew up a military brat, Californian-in-exile, reactionary libertarian-essentially spent the 70s on Mars, for I am hearing impaired and I did not know what the music was saying. Generally still don't unless I listen to it over and over or find the words captioned on a movie or somewhere on line. Came "back" to California to begin my adult life, have not lived elsewhere since. No regrets there despite our problems here. Have studied physics, more math than most human beings will ever need, worked on spaceship projects (well, one) at JPL. Lived with a wonderful disabled person who lives no more--L Natasha Littletree RIP October 2004. I have a life plan, just kind of vague on some of the short-term stuff.

Alternate answer to my random profile question

"You can punch a hole through an apple with a straw. How does this make your milkshake feel"

First answer was that it feels flashes of hope amid its terror and despair. Then I wondered...

...does the milkshake enjoy and look forward to its destiny of thrilling my palate and pooling in my gullet? In that case, it might be miffed and anxious I will neglect it. Not to worry, brave milkshake! If I order an item of food or drink, or make it, I am gonna eat it soon enough.

Stupid Blogger demanded a 150 word answer. I am not about short answers most of the time.
