Cartoons, and the Forum of Ideas

Cartoons:

Aren't they great? I especially like how the Road Runner outwits Wile E. Coyote each time, not matter what force Mr. Coyote employs...perhaps, if instead of bird-seed as bait, he could leave a letter explaining his views on said Runner, which Mr. Runner would read: they could then get together and have a lively discussion on the behavioral interactions of predators/prey.

Okay, we know what cartoons I'm talking about. But it really isn't all that different from the good old days (though this point is contentious) of Looney Tunes. It's starting to look mighty 'Looney Tunes' out there, if you ask me. And, since this is a blog, you don't have to, I'll just say what I please. Comment: free speech = good, though usually not easy; violence = bad, and usually extremely easy.

New Day, New Lesson

I am very vigilant when it comes to trying to extract as much information out of every experience that I have. Each day that is somewhat like the last still bears fruit, usually in more-than-manageable quantities.

However, I have only recently undergone some very large changes in my life; ending a relationship with a man who claimed to stand for an Objective viewpoint but lived his life in an entirely different manner (it took me a while to understand this, and I hope that I recall my past ignorance should the same situation rear its head in the future); beginning my graduate career in a field that takes my breath away with its magnificence, wonder, beauty and truth---mathematics (spec. mathematical physics).
