Journal Journal: Mod point hell

I've spent a year with Excellent karma, and not even one mod point. Now that dry spell is broken (or was). In the past week I've received 15. I realize that It'll probably be another year before I get more because I use them to mod up people who have been punished by the Slashdot groupthink. I can now fully expect to be bitch slapped by metamods.

I'm not complaining. The system is what it is and I understand that there is a lot of history and trial-by-fire behind it. I just needed to express my disgust with the usage of negative mods to indicate "I disagree".

Journal Journal: Where's all the cool stuff?

Where's my Newton based tablet? Where's my Firewire based home theater setup? How come I'm driving a '70 Impala (454, 3.73:1 Posi) instead of my flying car. Ok, I can answer that one; a big block anything is just a blast to drive. Thank G*d I'm paid milage. Don't know how I'd afford the 93 Octane otherwise. Just wish I had an overdrive tranny for the highway. Nothing like blasting along at 4k in a 32 year old vehicle, just waiting for something else to fail.
