Stealing October

In the future, ATWC is going to release a new album titled "Atwattack" and the hit single is going to be stealing october. Score it.

Man, projectamundo. I get the feeling that something's got to give. I don't want to accept that fact, so I don't think I'm going to. I'm just gonna have to get better at budgeting time. This means I'll always have to be multi-tasking. Hahah, I'm going to drive myself crazy for the sake of the Alliance and Ultimate.

You know, I want to be the valedictorian. I know that's mostly a corrupt goal and all that, but I'd like to do it. So, that's the goal. If I fail that's ok, but I'm going to try. I might as well be Asian.

It's been quite some time since the last post. I gotta start posting more regularly.

So, I had an idea. Another one of those ideas. Gonna throw it here.

Why is it so hard to make the metric system catch on? Well, for one thing, all of our road signs are in English system. The great barrier standing in the way of changing them is cost. It costs alot to remake all the signs and install all the new signs and all that sort of business. Nobody wants to pay more taxes, so what can you do?

You commercialize the road sign department.

You've got your classic "60 kph" sign, but right underneath that sign you've got a second sign, an advertisement for Carls Junior. The fact is, Carlos Pequeños payed some decent money to have that advertisement there. They helped fund the road sign, and they got advertisement. You didn't have to pay as much, plus you got a free burger for the trouble. Life is good as the traffic man.

But really, I think there are more and more departments that used to be entirely government controlled going commercial. Space is no longer something only reachable by governments, private folks are getting there all the time. Burt Rutan and his SpaceShipOne got there back in the day, and now they're about to go with SpaceShipTwo.

We know we can't hand over the road sign business entirely to the private industries, but we can help fund it with advertisements. It'd be just like the internet. How does everyone make money? Advertisements. How does TV and radio remain free? Advertisements. How do we free ourselves of the English system and go Metric? Advertisements.

Amen brotha, amen.
