A Poem for you!

A 14-year old allegedly wrote this poem, apparently in the spirit of Jonathan Reed’s “Lost Generation.” As with all things on the Internet, its authenticity is in doubt, but its message is powerful.

Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind….
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Giving up
Was how we handled our problems.
Working hard
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn’t come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around

Split California Into 6 States?

Californians may soon get a chance to vote on splitting their state
into six smaller ones, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Venture
capitalist Tim Draper has gotten formal approval to start collecting
petitions for his “Six Californias” idea. If he can get about 807,000
names by July 18, the idea would go before voters. Of course, even
it passes, it would still have to get through Congress, making this
seemingly closer to a thought experiment than a potential reality. “I
can’t imagine this would ever go anywhere,” says a government
expert at Dartmouth.

But California, “as it is, is ungovernable,” Draper tells ABC News. “It
is more and more difficult for Sacramento to keep up with the
social issues from the various regions of California.” Under his plan,
the United States would add:
Silicon Valley (San Francisco and San Jose)
South California (San Diego and Orange County)
West California (LA and Santa Barbara)
Central California (Bakersfield, Fresno, and Stockton)
North California (Sacramento)
Jefferson (Redding and Eureka)


Will You Watch? VH1 to Air Naked Dating Show!

With reality TV having to come up with weirder and more outrageous shows to present something that hasn’t been done before, the newest idea is a naked dating show that VH1 has picked up. The Hollywood Reporter says that the 10-episode series will take place in an exotic location and feature a man and a woman in every episode who will each date two different, naked people, with the focus on getting to know their honest selves. At the end of the episode, they’ll take a look at what they learned from their suitors and decide whether or not to go forward with either of them.  VH1  says the series will be edited to meet network standards — This is the latest in a spate of naked reality TV shows, including: Discovery’s survival series Naked Castaway and Naked and Afraid; Syfy’s Naked Vegas, about body painting; and TLC’s Buying Naked, in which nudist couples search for clothing-optional homes.
