Pink Floyd is not your Pink Rock. Let's just agree to that much.
Surely there is bad music. Good is rare. My three teens, fortunately,
always use headphones. I hear close to nothing. They must think it's
music being played. Any guidance I give them, pretty much falls on
deaf ears. When your own children give you mocking looks, you have to
wonder what power the Social Media, Schools, Peer Pressure, and
Marketing Forces brain wash them all so completely.
Don't listen to your old tired has-been only to be forgotten parents?!
What's wrong with you! Be cool. Only The State loves you best! We love
owning you Son. Trust Us. Hear some crap to be cool Cool COOL. Ignore
Thy Parents. But be polite.

Understood, and mad was a poor choice of word by me.

Opera I can listen too, don't even want to type the five letter string
that you've written. Lord, I suspect your keyboard has been hijacked
by autocorrect. Look behind you. Be safe.

It's golf and tennis weather in Florida. I could live with that.

Tea is biodegradable. It's there only in spirit. But you knew that.

The Bill of Rights? Is all capitalization universally at risk
same as http://tinyurl.com/bls9cvd which reinforces what I've
expressed before... beware of Law Enforcement. Beware of Job
Enforcement as well.
Availability of Freedom of Speech is highly suspect even within the
USA let alone in Countries that "We the People" are far Far FAR above.
Many an unemployed person learns ipso facto, as they're being escorted
out the door, for having been overheard by the coffee machine, water
cooler, whatever... ykwim, that there's really no FoS in any private
corporation. Technically FoS is just available within Government
buildings. Cough cough... cough. BS Bs bs.
Now there's FoS surveillance even closer to our fingertips. Gay HVAC
will get a kick, the out of the closet experience kind, from this
