Mortality is the single most elegant design element in the miracle of life.
I contemplate death a lot. The subject fascinates me simply because it is beyond the realm of human appreciation. So why contemplate it? Because I know that one day, every thought that I have not written down somewhere will be utterly lost. The absolute tragedy in Japan really brought this home to me. In this post, I contemplate the intriguing inevitability of death.

“When people go in search of the truth, they tend to find whatever it is they’re looking for, whether it is the truth or not.”
Remember when Pluto was a planet? Now it isn’t. Remember when removing tonsils cured tonsillitis? Now we know better. Or what about when the moon was completely devoid of water? Recent discoveries show otherwise. All of these things were true once. So I’ve got to ask a really tough question of you:
What is truth?
“The time has come to reaffirm…that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.”
– Barack H. Obama
The world has gone bonkers for Barack Obama – and who can blame them? It has been a while since the White House has had a rational resident and a while longer since America has had a leader that could inspired the entire nation with such prolific oratory. What is a first however, is that the most powerful nation on earth has had a leader that is so unimaginably popular that he has been embraced by almost every nation, creed, race, religion and people on earth to the point where he has evolved into a cultural icon of Biblical proportions – literally.

eorge W. Bush is a genius. Yes, I said it. The 43rd President of the United States is an unparalleled savant. Never before in the history of the world has one man duped the greatest modern empire of all time into the greatest modern hoax of all time by manipulating the greatest man made act of terrorism of all time to sideswipe the greatest united committee of all time to foster the worst orchestrated war of all time using the greatest lie of all time for the most underhanded and nefarious act of self profiteering of all time while plummeting the greatest empire of all time into the worst economic slump of all time then duping the “greatest” nation of all time into bringing him back for round two and three. And to top it all off, he did it all while appearing to be the dumbest, most inarticulate, most average, most unsophisticated, most ineloquent, least charismatic and worst favoured US president of all time. This guy made Nero look like a chump. Now if that isn’t the work of pure genius, I don’t know what is. But that’s not the kicker. George Bush got away with what he did, because he recognised long before anyone else, that the American public constitutes of the largest, most powerful Idiocracy of all time.
