[not insane]. "So, hey, everybody suffers somehow, right? The trick is in letting go when you're all growed up, and getting that one sour taste off the tongue, whatever its origin. A long time ago I tried to burn mine off with alcohol, but that didn't work, especially since the taste of cheap Chardonnay is too close to the zesty bouquet of sour grapes. But I wonder how many of my classmates have tried that one."

I seem to build up vast charges of static electricity. Every time i step out of a car, the door shocks me; Almost every cat i pet is first greeted with a slight zap (which might partially explain my own cat's high-strung nature..); The urban landscape is rife with sparking doorknobs and lightswitches.
a quick google proves once again that i know nothing, and that lies-to-children are most of our education. Including such thoughts as

The term "electricity" is a catch-all word with many meanings. Unfortunately these meanings are contradictory, and this leads to the unsettling fact that there is no single substance or energy called "electricity.""


As regards my situation, "In addition, [a static field] is an example of pure voltage, or voltage without current. The strength of this e-field is incredibly large when compared to the voltage of batteries and of common electronic circuitry. ... The tiniest "static spark" is caused by about 1000 volts. Longer "car door sparks" and "doorknob sparks" can involve as much as 10,000 volts."
and then, the sought after link: HUMANS AND SPARKS - The Cause, Stopping the Pain, and "Electric People" - "Your body-voltage can easily rise to several thousand volts, and the next time you touch someone else... ZAP!, the imbalanced charge gets shared between you and the other person. The spark is painful because it's extremely hot. It drills into your skin like a white-hot needle, creating a microscopic burned area." kinky.

[mess-o-links] - I decided to get up-to-date on what napster alternatives there are out there, and the whys and wherefores of selecting amongst them (what features they have/lack, what the privacy/security concerns currently are, etc).
intro: There's this article from aug '01 at webmonkey, which offers a little history, doesnt really like any of the contenders (says morpheus and limewire were the best of the bunch), warns against the horrors of audiogalaxy (which you shouldnt be using anyway, its spyware), and offers some coherent explanations for why none compare to the peak of napster's time (page 3). Even better is this sept '01 article at infoanarchy.
Comprehensive lists and some reviews can be found at infoanarchy (best info source) (recent roundup in bottom paragraph of article), open-nap, nonap (overly simplified), zeropaid (dubious quality) (recent comments), and of course google.
The results? Things are still in (rapid) development. Options for the discerning audio connoisseur who misses the golden age of napster are still disheartening (nothing yet offers as much speed and selection as it once did). The best of the current bunch are: Winmx (open-nap network); Gnucleus, Gnotella and Limewire (gnutella network); and the independants Filetopia, and Freenet look promising. However, with upcoming new releases for many of these, i'm going to resist temptation for another few months, and get back to the things that i'm meant to be doing. *cough*.

BBC News | AMERICAS | US 'has nuclear hit list'. I've been trying not to blog these things too much, but What the Hell???
"The Bush administration has reportedly ordered the Pentagon to prepare contingency plans for attacking seven countries with nuclear weapons.
Quoting a secret Pentagon report, the Los Angeles Times newspaper names China, Russia, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Libya and Syria as potential targets."
