You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of
intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

And just out of curiosity, a couple different answers:

You are The Magician

Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.

Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing, you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.

The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man - either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

Very, very happy with this story. 

Nearly done reading Aleph.  I will have to read more of Coelho's works.

And on a sad note - RIP Anne McCaffery.  I very much enjoyed reading your Dragonriders books.  Your contribution to sci-fi and fantasy will not be forgotten.

Yeah, I am seeing this all over - but I think we can't ignore it!

From the flist: 

Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

Read this analysis from boing-boing.net

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.


“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

Maybe we should all just vote for 3rd party candidates tomorrow. Unless they are already in office.  What do ya think?

I have posted to Titanium Don again.  I actually feel better for having written this.

Feel free to share.

Sometimes I have the oddest thoughts at the oddest times.

Earlier this afternoon, for no reason whatsoever, I was pondering the loss of our nation's ability to readily send people to space.  The Shuttle is retired, and its replacement is not scheduled to be ready til 2015, which we all know means 2020 at the EARLIEST.  Thus NASA will rely on the Russian space program and their Soyuz craft, and the likes of SpaceX and their Dragon capsule to get our astronauts to the ISS and such.

So I was thinking - rather than reinvent the wheel - why can't they just return to Apollo?  I mean, the Saturn V rocket for the Apollo program is solid, the command module is a tried and tested design - and how much can it be refined if you swap out 1960's computer technology with 21st century tech? 

Seriously - why the hell has no one asked this question?  Why can't we just take the Apollo design, modernize it (which I bet would allow for a roomier interior in the capsule) and get this up-and-running in a year or two?

Thinking about a lot of things currently.  I did a blog entry about one of the largest problems facing us today.

Pondering my OWN fears.  And what to do with them.  More importantly - how to deal with them.  How to overcome them.

It's real

This is the latest entry to my public blog.  This is An open letter to the political parties and their insistence on getting nothing useful done for middle-class America.

Feel free to use the form letter and contact your representative.

Since I know a number of people having a less-than-stellar week, and I have manged to find a GOOD mood, I have decided to attempt to share that.

My latest blog post.  Thoughts on the notion of happiness.

Something meaningful from Paulo Coelho.

Some humor.  Safe-ish for work.  Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] owynn  for that.

Here comes Doctor Tran.  Beware - NSFW!!


fencerm2: (Sedona)
I have developed a DEEP respect for author Paulo Coehlo.  I have read a couple of his books (The Alchemist, Warrior of the Light) follow his blog, follow him on Twitter, and he has amazing insights.

Today he posted a challenge to create a story in 6 words.  A writing challenge I CANNOT pass up.  My story:

Life is brighter than the sun

This short moment of creativity his tremendously brightened a slow moving, overly-busy work day.  And its a message I can take to heart. 

I had to share.
