I'm actually kind of partial to the idea of communism.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Well if a country has a low population but a lot of resources, you can bet that a larger country in need of resources will waltz right on in...god knows who I'm referring to. There's a guy out there named John Perkins who wrote a book called Confessions of an Economic Hitman and he has a bunch of videos on youtube describing the United States' approach to taking over these countries, it's pretty eye opening stuff if you're interested.

Yeah, it doesn't really work when people are greedy/ there are nations that could conveniently invade a small Communist country. 

I also like defending "Imagine."

Valentine's Day is associated with red. Communism is associated with red.

From Valentine's Day to Communism, wow. 


Welcome to the BBF. brian-epstein
Like I said, it seems reasonable to me. But people will always be greedy. If they can't have more money than you, then it will be something else. Like Sneetches.

Ok, I feel responsible for this, but Who knew we knew so much about Communism? Strange days

I have a feeling this is a referance to something, but I think I'm too young to really get it. Unless your actually serious, then it's a no.

It's an old song by R.E.M. (called Orange Crush) : "Follow me, don't follow me. I've got my spine, I've got my Orange Crush."

Really? R.E.M. must have been desperate for an idea.

Michael Stipe's never really been one for straight-talking lyrics. In fact, in their earlier songs, he just kind of mumbles, and if you caught any of it, it still doesn't make any sense.

He's not singing about soda, anyways. He's talking about Agent Orange used during Vietnam. (At least, that is what I have heard.) a-hard-days-night-george-10

Best Valentine's Day was last year when I was in a relationship and she let me watch Beatles movies in bed all day while it was the first time she had ever seen any of them. It was really great.

Awww, that's sweet! Your post reminds me of how my 11 year old nephew got Beatles Rock Band for Christmas this year, and that I was about 11 when I got into the whole Sgt. Pepper thing through a friend of mine who grew up with their music herself. She got sick of me wanting to hear that album over and over (what can I say, when I like something, I really like it!) and I saw A Hard Day's Night for the first time with her. And that's pretty much when it began…

Anyways, this makes me wonder if my nephew would have any interest in seeing A Hard Day's Night as well. Maybe we'll wait a bit for Help when I can explain why that movie is the way it is. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Back on track, I just learned I have a hot date with a Macroeconomics quiz on the 14th of February. Awesome.

Ugh, I hated Macro. Yeah I bet he would like it. She was 24 last year and she didn't quite get it but still enjoyed them or at least let me think that.
