I am ranting tonight, here is an agreeable rant from John Steinbeck.

I think I agree. I am spoiled rotten and probably am fully aware of it. At least I avoided the obvious traps and pitfalls of what I saw going on in the leisure industry before I could be compartmentalized and corrupted. I can’t really say that I have avoided that as far as english textbook editing but at least I got out before my soul was destroyed I guess.

I won’t be giving up my google email any time soon yet…

I already knew they were mining it for advertising info and assorted other bullshit. If I was a terrorist I probably would find a better service not owned by what is essentially the info-digging service of corporate america. I knew what I signed up for, and it was fairly clear about what it was in the terms of service and all the ads.

But if you are looking for a deal on Google stock perhaps this is a good yardsale for you. If I had money I would do it. I don’t, unfortunately my life choices have removed me from the market for the next while. Yay me!
