    Once saw a bumper sticker that read, "I GOT A HARLEY FOR MY HUSBANDGREAT TRADE, EH?

    Caulfield is getting dangerously close to an insight: it’s not the structure, it’s not the schedule, it’s not the work; it’s the fact that these things are imposed upon him by somebody else at school, and later on, when he joins the working class, in his job. Remember that the public schools are equal parts education and indoctrination, properly preparing people to fit into society… which includes accepting that most of your life you’re going to be doing what somebody else tells you to do, on that person’s schedule.

    Beats matching bathtubs.

    I labor under no misconceptions: the granola bars I prefer contain chocolate chips.

    Something similar can be said for Jeff Lynne, lead singer (and apparently only remaing member) of the Electric Light Orchestra. You’d never accuse him of having a good voice, but it’s immediately recognizable… and in an odd way, the songs just don’t sound as good when performed by a “good” singer. Same applies to Dylan, methinks. For that matter, same applies to early Bruce Springsteen, when he sounded more like Dylan.

    Once upon a time…they lived happily ever after. The end.

    The stuff in the middle is just filler.

    There is also deeper meaning in the number “42” as the answer to the great question of life, the universe and everything. I believe it was the second (or possibly the third) book that revealed the great question was “What do you get when you multiply six by nine?” But if that is the question, “forty-two” is most definitely NOT the correct answer…

    Unless the underlying mathematics of the universe are in base thirteen rather than base ten. Then it works. Which seems to explain a lot…

    I think somebody’s been spending too much time watching PBS nature shows (or worse, working as a substitute teacher and showing them to five biology classes in a day; ask me how I know…) Yes, there is some violence and misery in nature, but take a close look at that herd of antelopes being stalked by the lioness as Richard Attenborough whispers. Only one of them’s going to be eaten, and the rest (the ones not being chased at the moment) seem remarkably relaxed. They know they’re not going to be eaten today, and that’s all that matters if you’ve not been cursed with spindle neurons (those are the cells that create the sense of past-present-future and allow things like anticipation and worry; they’re only found in higher primates, and only humans have enough to support planning, speculating and worrying). The “lower” creatures spend most of their existence in the simple pleasures of eating, pooping, moving and mating. Sure, most of them will exit this life in an unpleasant manner, but for most that’s a small part of their existence and certainly nothing to get in the way of enjoying how nice the grass tastes today. Of course, this dosn’t make for exciting television (nor does it reinforce the “social Darwinist” philosophy of the billionaires who pay for these shows—“major funding for NOVA is provided by the David H. Koch Fund For Science [sic]”), so we aren’t often reminded that most of the creatures on this planet spend most of their time NOT being killed and eaten.

    I went the opposite route: conservative Republican toying with libertarianism in my twenties (I even voted for Reagan!); Democrat in my forties; Green in my sixties (sorry, Bernie; you’re too conservative, not to mention a sellout). What drove the reversal? Might have had something to do with the fact that I invented a gadget that made a billion or so dollars for my big corporate employer, and they rewarded me with a cheap trinket for my desk… and then early-retired me (and many others) when the executives (who, of course, gave themselves million-dollar salaries and bonuses) ran the business into the ground.

    And everyone will pay me for them!
