I'd like to put in my vote for existence getting absorbed into the supercontext and the larval forms of humanity being shed for the whatever-we-become once we escape the incubator of reality.

Or, you know, zombies. Whatever.

That's from New Hampshire? weird. My impression of them is that they're fiscal conservatives, not social conservatives. New Hampshire is the second least religious state in the union. The average NH republican is more pro-choice than the national average. So I doubt it'll pass.
I love NH, but they've got some special crazy there. You have to remember that a lot of the population in the southern part of the state is folks who really want to be in Boston but don't want to do things like pay taxes or way too much for a tiny apartment. The further north you go, the more redneck-y it gets, but the population density also goes down to next to nothing.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Picking Cain's Brains

Dear Cain's Brain,

Your prophecies appear to be coming true (re: Republican candidates).

(Herman) Cain: Confused, inarticulate, wandering hands. Gone.
Bachmann: Insane. Gone. (Maybe she could get a job at the US Embassy in Iran?)
Gingrich: Unlikeable in every way.
Paul: Great if your libertarian, bad if you're not a racist asshole.
Perry: Insane and getting worse. I wonder if any of the soldiers peeing on the corpses were gay. That would be weird.
Santorum: Insane...possibly a communist. At least according to his Italian relatives that he doesn't visit anymore. 
Romney: The candidate the GOP will foist upon the republican voters like it or not.
Huntsman: Gone...but probably not completely yet.

Palin: I'm not running...OR AM I???? :ohnotache:
Huntsman dropped out officially on Monday, he endorsed the inevitable.

Apple Talk / Re: Prostitution & feminism

Things seem to have drifted slightly from the OP, but my two cents on the feminism angle:

Feminism is about empowering women to make choices in their own lives. If, in some shiny fluffy world where no one ever has any problems, a woman chooses to sell sex of her own free will and enjoys it, it seems like something a feminist should be able to support. A woman choosing to date a man who has a history of hiring prostitutes is, again, exercising her ability to choose, and that should be celebrated. A woman choosing not to date men with that history is making an equally valid choice, and that, too, should be celebrated. You should have complete control over who has access to your body and the unquestionable right to deny that access to anyone at any time for any reason that floats your boat.* That shouldn't even be a sentence you have to say to a feminist, that's pretty much the core of most of their talking points.

Your friends are the anti-feminists.

*which is why I don't go in airports

Powerpoint 2007.

Also call me twid. Billy the is more of a joke stemming from my usual screenname.

Um, I have no idea how to turn powerpoint into pamphlets, although I'm guessing you do. If you end up doing anything in photoshop or indesign, I have template files I'd gladly share, though.
