Uh, No, Just No

I found this here.  I HATE that thing where people add crazily misspelled captions to pictures.  I have trouble enough spelling myself without someone making fun of misspelling and deliberately doing it.

So, my last act of defiance (though it's certainly not my last) is to scratch off the caption, which Blognomicon did not add (but did perpetuate).

I know it is fruitless and hopeless.  I will never turn the tide in the vast ocean of the Internet, but like fighting unnameable horrors from beyond, I can't help myself and it does give my soul a bit of a lift to know that I went down fighting.

Not to say I've gone down, or that I'm done for.  One of my favorite admonitions is a quote from Jack Dempsey: "A champion is someone who gets up when he can't."

Surely it was that kind of thinking that went through the mind of Norwegian sailor Gustaf Johansen wen he turned and rammed the Alert into Cthulhu.  Sure it was futile.  I think he knew it would be, but it was the only thing he could do and in the end it bought him the time he needed.  We are all still doomed, but as Buzz Lightyear says, "Not today, Zurg."

I'm doomed by these stupid captions, and facebook and reality TV.  Oh well, full steam ahead!
