Out of the Blue

Sure enough, temperatures hit about a million degrees around here yesterday. Among other things, I am seriously considering checking out Gila Window Films, a product to address this recommended by Enahs (there are just a few small attic-type windows up here, but any little bit helps). Even then the AC up here will clearly remain a few BTUs shy of what's required... at one point yesterday I started seeing mirages.

22. Population vs. Assholes Jun 10, 2004, 12:14 bothersome
Sorry for the political talk, but these are the only message boards I browse on the web. So, I was sitting here wondering if anyone else is having the same dilemma I was...

I dislike Bush and would vote for anyone else for presidency to get him out of office, the problem is that I dislike Kerry to. If I vote for an independant then I risk Bush staying in office which I definitely don't want, but if I vote Kerry I'm voting for someone who really hasn't shown me any great "Presidential" qualities.

The current US population is 291,500,000. Out of this I'm guessing there are at least 20 billion people that are of age to run for president and are not yet to physically ill for the job. Now out of 20 billion people how come we're left with just two arseholes for the choice of president? Man, I hate the party system.
