English: Lever of a lever voting machine.

It’s not the voting that’s democracy, it’s the counting.”   —   Tom Stoppard

(I wonder how he views the computerized voting machines, that have a very high potential for manipulating the actual count?  Hmm!  I know a lot of people don’t have a very high comfort level with this method.  And, they’ve come to doubt the democratic process because of this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 02/15/12

First flight of the Wright Flyer I, December 1...

Visual Description:  Turn of the century skeptics, observing and mocking men of vision.

CYYUK  =  YUCKY,  EZIRP  =  PRIZE,  ANRUFI  =  UNFAIR,  TCEALT  =  CATTLE   —   Giving us:  CYPZNARALE

Clue/Question:  Some people thought the Wright Brothers were just . . .

Answer:  PLANE CRAZY

(This one has it’s highs and lows.  Nice groaner of a pun.  Extremely good answer letter layout!  One new – though unremarkable – word, in “yucky”, to add to the ralis95 database.  One very poorly jumbled word, in “prize”.  Boo!  It’s simply backwards!  But also, two very skillfully jumbled words, in “cattle” and especially in “unfair”.  Yay!  Fun cartoon . . . as usual.  S’about it, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Spam Message of the Year!

. . . Well, so far, at least!

SPAM! [don't buy]

Every single day I receive varying amounts of spam, which WordPress is very good about filtering out, from the legitimate comments.  Usually, the spam is full of complimentary praise, designed to get you to accept it.  But, it’s always so non-specific to the post that it’s allegedly commenting on, and the English is generally very suspect..  Other times the spam is just a mish-mosh of letters, numbers and symbols, mixed in with the occasional words and phrases.  However, every so often you get a spam message that doesn’t fit the mold.  I received this one the other day, and for some reason, I feel compelled to share it with all of you!

“if the buffalo in my head could speak german i would not know a god damm thing. What i do know is that the language of art is out of this world. 977229”   —   Wollin@aol.com

How wonderfully quirky!  It’s both strangely cryptic, and semi-poetic.  Again, the English – and the spelling – is very suspect, in parts, but it has a whimsical quality to it.  I have no idea whose email address this is, and very likely it has been cloned/hacked, but if someone wants to write to this person . . . feel free!  No, I’m just kidding!  You’d either be just adding to this person’s misery, or you might even open yourself up to being hacked/cloned.  Just enjoy this for the random nonsense that it is.  Be well, do good . . . and search for hidden beauty, friends.   —   YUR
