I don't think the systems broken, just the people in it.

But I do agree, I'll be glad when it's over. We do not have much of a choice for 2008.

I know I am. We definatly have a corrupt voting system. For something this important every ballot should be hand counted, nothing done by computers. It would take longer, but would prevent hacking of the machines. Also, why can't we have a simple voting system, everyone votes and the winner is the guy who got the most votes. Enough with the deligates/super deligates.. Also lobbiest have to go, they really only benefit rich corporations that abuse the system to make more money while screwing the general public. Our founding fathers would be ashamed to see what our government has become. The Federal Reserve is another example of corruption and greed. It's actually illegal according to the constitution written by our founding fathers after our independence from Britian for similar reasons, so I have to believe they simply didn't see these kind of things happening.

Just my random thoughts of the day...

Yeah, I can only think that the founders incorrectly believed that those in future politics would be less corrupt. Although I'm not sure why, personally I would have designed out any way for anyone or any group or business to influence politics with money in any way. Then at least the Election wouldn't be about how much money your had in your campain.

Definitely. Not only is it incredibly fun to stuff around with, but many universities use it in their engineering courses, you could claim it's homework if you want an excuse (not that you need one).

Wow, my hair comes past my shoulders!

Hehehe, a few hours after my last post in this thread I became the happy owner of yet another large LEGO set (Nearly 800 pieces). It's a tyrannosaurus and it roars.

Argh, school resumes tomorrow, no more sitting in front of the computer for days on end.

I woke up just 40 minutes from reaching the ISS with a XR5 on the laptop I keep by my bed (and my wife's bed... (she understands my addiction)) after a flawless takeoff last night reaching Mach 17+ with scrams... very beautiful. Letting the ISS catch up to me over night.
Only to press the time acceleration once too many and miss the retro burn time... DAMN
