I would like to pause in the day's occupation and reflect, in song, one the meaning of this time of year:

Alone in the world was poor little Anne
As sweet a young child as you'd find
Her parents had gone to their final reward
Leaving their baby behind

Did you hear this poor little child
Was only nine years of age
When mother and dad went away
Still she bravely worked
At the one thing she knew
To earn a few pennies a day

She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
Flowers for ladies of fashion to wear
She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
Fashioned from Annie's despair

With papers and shears, with wire and wax
She made up each tulip and mum
As snow flakes drifted in to her tenement room
Her baby little fingers grew numb

From artificial flowers, those artificial flowers
Flowers for ladies of high fashion to wear
She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
Made from Annie's despair

And they found little Annie all covered with ice
Still clutching her poor frozen shears
Amidst all the blossoms, she had fashioned by hand
And watered with all her young tears

There must be a heaven where little Annie can play
In heavenly gardens and bowers
And instead of halo, she'll wear round her head
A garland of genuine flowers

No more artificial flowers, artificial flowers
Flowers for ladies of society to wear
Those artificial flowers, artificial flowers
Fashioned from Annies
Fashioned from Annies despair.

Maybe you could just slip quietly back into the nineteenth century?

Hey, this is Idaho -- a state that's danged near as red as you can get! We LIVE the nineteenth century here, and if this little oasis of progress ever got slapped down we'd live the seventeenth century!

We're the bright young men
Who wanta go back to 1910....

...We're Georgie's boys.
We're the new kind of youth
For government like grandpa had
We're Georgie's boys....

No college days with Socrates or Plato
And you're Georgie's boys.
Just organize parades for the abolishment of NATO and the rest
The Entire West!
So let's go back to the days when men were men
And fight the First World War all over again....

Aw, I love a gushingly sad poem every now and then.


The Babes in the Wood

My dear, do you know,
How a long time ago,
   Two poor little children,
Whose names I don't know,
Were stolen away
On a fine summer's day,
   And left in a wood,
As I've heard people say.

Among the trees high
Beneath the blue sky
   They plucked the bright flowers
And watched the birds fly;
Then on blackberries fed,
And strawberries red,
   And when they were weary
'We'll go home,' they said.

And when it was night
So sad was their plight,
   The sun it went down,
And the moon gave no light.
They sobbed and they sighed
And they bitterly cried,
   And long before morning
They lay down and died.

And when they were dead
The robins so red
   Brought strawberry leaves
And over them spread;
And all the day long,
The green branches among,
   They'd prettily whistle
And this was their song—
'Poor babes in the wood!
Sweet babes in the wood!
   Oh the sad fate of
The babes in the wood!'

Aw, God, I can't take it anymore.

I swear, I'm gonna do something desperate. So depressed by Annie and the Babes in the Woods and the poor child whose father wouldn't come home from the saloon. And the Little Match Girl. And that poor Little Mermaid, forever longing for the sea to which she can never return.

I just can't take it anymore I tell you!

I think I'll have a dozen quilters over today. That will end it all.

Farewell, cruel world! Until we meet again.

Quilters may be employed as a psyclogical warefare weapon, if the situation warrents such serious intervention, and all standard measures, which are detailed in seperate publications 'Hearts and minds in Banana Republics' and 'Police state 101, Big black cars for beginners'

No detailed accounts of their function remains intact, and all the copies so far found have been written in either the suviviors own blood, or an intricate cross-stitch upon the weapon, dependant upon the intial inclination of the targetIt generally consists of a variation on the theme of 'The natter, the endless inanne natter..'

'Twas a cold winter's evening
The boys were all leaving,
And Reilly was closing the bar.

And he turned and he said,
To the lady in red,
"Miss, get out. You can't stay where you are!"

She shed a sad tear
In her bucket of beer
As she thought of the cold night ahead

When a gentleman dapper
Stepped out from the crapper
And these were the words that he said:

"Her mother never told her
All the things that a young girl should know
About the ways of college men,
And how they come and go.
Her mother never told her,
And life has left a sad scar.
Remember your mothers,
And your sisters, boys!
And let her sleep under the bar!"


...See? They don't ALL have unhappy endings.

YOu have to be careful though with freds, becuae if the freds population drops too much then they will be hit with a breeding frenzy. And if the frenzy hits too hard there is the possibility of breaking it. a broken frenzy is not a good thing.

Amos, don't you mean that "a breeding frenzy is a terrible thing to wasebi? Back when I was in college there were those sorts of frenzies, but nobody thought of using wasebi. Apple butter, honey, ice cream, homemade jelly, and even peanut butter, but not wasebi. Of course, those were far more innocent days.

I think you mean wasabi: "A spice that comes from a knobby green root of the Japanese plant wasbia japonica. A traditional condiment served with Japanese sushi and sashimi. It has the same warming or stinging nasal sensation as horseradish."

A breeding frenzy based on wasabi would be wasted, indeed.

I can't even imagine a feeding frenzy in the presence of wasabi.

A Christmas song from my youth. It still brings tears to my ears.

A Christmas Song

Jolly ol' Saint Nicholas,
lean your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul
what I'm going to say:
Christmas Eve is coming soon;
now, you fat old man
Whisper what you'll bring to me;
while I tell you what I can.

When the clock is striking twelve,
and I'm fast asleep
Down the chimney, you will come
with your bag, you creep
All our money you will find
Inside Daddy's desk,
the middle drawer don't lock so good,
Please don't make a mess.

Dad will be behind the door,
Ma will be in bed
Dad says if you creep in there,
he'll fill you full of lead.
I'll leave it up to you, dear man
how to sneak away
'Cause if you're found in my room again
there'll be Hell to pay.

You should probably be aware of morphological analysis before you go any further into the future.

"Morphological analysis is a method for rigorously structuring and investigating the total set of relationships in inherently non-quantifiable socio-technical problem complexes (variously
called "wicked problems" and "social messes"1).

The method is carried out by developing a discrete parameter space of the problem complex to be investigated, and defining relationships between the parameters on the basis of internal consistency.

Such an internally linked parameter space is called a morphological field. With proper computer support, a morphological field can be treated as an inference model.

Morphological analysis can be employed for:

· developing scenarios and scenario modeling laboratories;
· developing strategy alternatives;
· analyzing risks;
· relating means and ends in complex policy spaces;
· developing models for positional or stakeholder analysis;
· evaluating organizational structures for different tasks;
· presenting highly complex relationships in the form of comprehensible, visual models.

MA is carried out in small subject specialist groups with the strong facilitation of practiced morphologists."

from an Article for the UN University Millennium Project:
Futures Research Methodology Series, and the Swedish Morphological Society.

Just in case, you know...
