amidst my wanderings over the weekend, i picked up a copy of lip magazine. radical liberal fun. and, while not perfect, is the best magazine since bitch, which has generally been annoying me as of late.

in addition to the works of mattilda aka matt bernstein sycamore and bertrand russell, they printed a (san francisco?) craigslist post. which i completely intend to semi-plagiarize later for my own self, but for now am content to completely plagiarize for you selves.


For Sale or Barter: My Body, in Persistent Vegetative State

I make the following statement in a sound state of mind and of my own volition:

If I am rendered comatose and determined to be in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) for period loner than one month and if no imminent cure is forthcoming, I do not wish to be kept alive by artificial means including but not limited to nourishment, hydration, etc.

However: If due to the absurd political state of affairs in this country, my PVS and impending unplugging can be parlayed into some sort of political gain, I wholly endorse using my predicament in whatever way possible for the purposes of passing legislation favorable to my general political and ethical outlook. Here is a list of top-tier causes I support and will continue to support, both while in my PVS ad after my eventual death.

lj cut for length of author's causes with added commentary at end by moi )

ok. so maybe i also have too much time on my hands tonight. i did, however, get to watch arrested development. whilst watching the tv, i managed to get mosquito-bitten on my ass (THROUGH MY PANTS), on my heel (THROUGH MY SOCK), and on my hand, before smacking the sucker and making a mess.
see, mother nature needs to be nicer to me if zie wants me to return the favour.

hillary clinton sent me another money request. (update: i sent her an unlaminated (too much added cost. i now have the laminating supplies, however) $1 bill.)

this time, she included a "survey".

portions of survey below. trust me, you really do (not) want to peek )

umm yeah.

my survey is full of added writing. minimal cursing. she stated in the current letter, "you can't let the opposition set the terms of the debate". um. abortion is what?
tell me again, ms. clinton, your precise stance on universal human rights?

If you are one of the millions of Americans who are saying, "no one's listening to me," and if you believe the Bush Administration and its allies in Congress have turned a deaf ear to the issues that are important to you, now is the time to help us change things.

change is what?


she wants money, again. and a laminated piece of change or two* is what she can expect to receive.

*kudos to [livejournal.com profile] brienf for the inspiration.
