06/19/23 – Cranky For The Job

Spacetrawler, audio version For the blind or visually impaired, June 19, 2023.


So, I’m working on getting a new car (and yes, I escaped Farmington). And I really try not to use life problems to fundraise, but quite a few people asked how they could help, and every bit would be helpful and appreciated. The links are on the right sidebar there, or:

Hmmmm. Krep might be a fun successor to the position of Apex Speaker.

    Hey Chris. Haven’t been to the store yet, but I really, REALLY, ~~NEEEEEED a t-shirt with all the cast on it (maybe those primarily in the version they were in. So that gives you 3 different designs to work up. You’re not all that busy, right?)


    And I think, if I’m not already, I really need to fix my karma, and become a patron.

    I’ll take care of that very soon.

    Thank you for getting me thru knee surgery, a fall that could have killed me but did break my back in 2 places, and has keep me mostly bedbound. (I’m improving, tho slowly. 7th decade is known for that, I’ve heard.)

    Can’t wait to see what Spacetrawler 4 looks like!

        Is what those ??? were supposed to be.

        FWiwX I’ve never been able to kill a Toyota product. They’ve both lasted longer that 250,000 and/or 15 yrs. I’m holding out now for a full electric Toyota. My current Corolla looks about a year old; she’s working on 8 yrs , and counting. (43mph! Maintains it.)

        Good luck. Tho you have events, good luck seems to find you. I think of Chaos Theory sometimes. 🙂 )

    Our world would be a better place if we somehow arranged it so that our leaders all had to be dragged kicking and screaming to take the position.

    Politicians should be drafted, with definite term limits. Pull them from the same universe as jury duty. If you want to keep pretending, draft two or three candidates and have an election.

      My hubs and I have been saying that for ~decades. We agree on all points.

      Now, how to get it in the Constitution. And get “everybody” to not throw fits about it. (“Everybody” includes those in Congress as well as certain parts of the population, who “hate” government, yet would fight this way of finding leaders.)

      Maybe in another 200 yrs. Lol

    “Vote Krep for Apex Speaker – You already know he hates your guts*!”
    (*Or organ of equivalent function)
    With Nogg as veep of course. Gurf can be secretary of state.

    Emily’s a far superior choice for Apex Speaker, except she’s intelligent enough to know it’s a meatgrinder. Krep’s already blackened by his life experience, Stangor knows too much what she could do with the position, Khaba, Zakzar and Diller, formidable as a team as they are, would too swiftly be bored by the routine and drudgery.

    But Ruddock, on the other hand…
