    I prefer the line the walls with Black plastic trash bags and close the curtains so that no light can enter. Then cut myself and cry in the dark while listening to emo music.

    The most interesting funeral I have ever been to was the funeral of my wifes mother. She is Filipina and they have a completely different tradition then americans have. They bring the body to the house in an open casket and keep it there for 7 days while people come and visit to pay their respects. During this time, they raise money for the funeral and the festivities by having games. Kind of like card games and gambling. Its like a 7 day long party with alcohol, gambling and karaoke. Of course the family would have moments of solidarity where they would pray or sit with the casket and have moments of silence. But for the most part, everyone drank, gambled and sang until they passed out or were to tired to continue.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    That is not called for.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    There are people who are downright outraged that Americans are enjoying the freedoms that our veterans fought and died for. It's a disgrace.

    It is a serious question, though there probably is a bit of sarcasm, too. I'm very sarcastic by nature. Anyway, this year, for the first time, I'm catching a degree of shaming directed toward people who use the holiday to relax and/or have a good time. This attitude baffles me. I was curious how prevalent this feeling was. Not very, it turns out, which is nice.
    Oy vey!

    I have never heard anyone say that you could not have a good time on memorial day. I could understand someone who lost a soldier in their family maybe not having such a good time on a day like today, but for the most part, everyone I know has a blast on memorial day.

    I was watching Pain and Gain last night, Mark Whalbergs movie... and they wanted to get the finger prints off a dead guy so they BBQ's his hands in a grill in the front yard. Weird.

    That is what Hitler used to do prior to founding the Nazi's:

    Because BBQ'ing is about Free Speach.
