  • This Island Earth

    Does the subtitle to this section bother anyone else? I mean, shouldn't it read, "x.x billion people can't be RIGHT!"?

    No comments on the single most important issue facing humanity today? The one issue that most directly addresses every other. Why am I not surprised?

      I'm not sure I understand the issue you are referring to. Over population? That fact that everyone seems to think they're right and everyone else is wrong? The fact that no one seems to want to work together to solve the world's problems? All of the above? Or, are you referring to something altogether different?

        Oh, you understand all right and it didn't take two guesses, either.

          Oh, those luxury livin' pirates!
          CNN report on Somalia's Pirates
          Jimmy Buffet's A Pirate looks at 40
          Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call
          Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
          You've seen it all, you've seen it all

          Watched the men who rode you switch from sail to steam
          In your belly you can hold the treasures few have ever seen
          Most of 'em dreams, most of 'em dreams

          Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred years too late
          The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
          I'm an over-forty victim of fate
          Arriving too late, arriving too late

          But I've done a bit of smugglin', I've run my share of grass
          Made enough money to buy Miami, but I pissed it away so fast
          Never meant to last, never meant to last

          I have been drunk now for over two weeks,
          Passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks
          But I've got stop wishin', got to go fishin'
          I'm down to rock bottom again
          Just a few friends, just a few friends

          "Nice to see all of our friends every year. Thank you

          Now I go for younger women, lived with several awhile
          Though I ran 'em away, they'd come back one day
          And I still could manage a smile
          Sure takes a while, just takes a while

          Mother, mother ocean, after all my years I've found
          Occupational hazard being my occupation's just not around
          Feel like I've drowned, but I won't wear a frown
          Feel like I've drowned, I'm gonna go check out
          Peachtree Street somewhere downtown
          Life is either an adventure... or you're not doing it right!!!
