Kenya lyrics

Thanks (or curses) to jenocp, who extracted all the words from Kenya:

We’re gonna see lions
Only in Kenya
Going to Kenya, we’ve got lions
We’re gonna see tigers
Only in Kenya
Got lions and tigers only in Kenya
Forget Norway
Kenya, oh Kenya
Where the giraffes are and the zebra
Ah Kenya, Kenya, Kenya, Kenya
Ah Kenya, we’re going to Kenya
You can believe it

Now you can have ALL the words burning through your skull at night as you try to fall asleep...

Presidential-candidate quiz

The most-detailed presidential-candidate quiz I've yet seen (grokked from shellyinseattle:
AOL/Time Warner quiz
My results:
1 Kucinich Score: 100%
2 Sharpton Score: 95%
3 Kerry Score: 93%
4 Dean Score: 87%
5 Clark Score: 86%
6 Edwards Score: 79%
7 Bush Score: 0%

The Bush score doesn't surprise me (well, maybe a little -- I mean, zero? Nada? Is he not human? Oh, never mind...), but Sharpton sure does! Huh. I guess I'll be happy after all if Kerry gets the nomination! I should feel silly now after making (small) donations to Dean and Clark...

The Prime Directive

I hear Captain Picard (er, what's-his-name) in an interview on the BBS last night. He said he wished Next Gen was still in production so he could pound on the writers' door and have them do an episode about the Prime Directive paralleling W's anti-Prime-Directive-ness.

Remember how, every time the Federation decided to intervene, it ended badly? Now imagine an episode where the Enterprise goes to some alien world, manufactures unlikely charges against its people, blows the living shit out of it for a while, risks nearly losing its ground troops as the logistics crumbles (say, when the Admiral discovers what's going on and ceases all weapons shipments), installs a Federation-friendly leadership (except it would have to be an Enterprise-friendly gov't, cuz the Federation wouldn't stand for this), and then makes billions siphoning from its economy.

Oh, wait, the Federation doesn't use money, is against intervention (what do they say? something about rule number one...), and would immediately take Picard into custody.
