Flush This! From Ode to Commode...


An ode to the squash; my fine striped friend,
What shall you be; when cooked to the end,
A morsel perhaps; and more I am sure,
Your beginnings were modest; most certainly pure,
Begun as a seed; and raised to be squat,
I could now allow you; to be less than you ought,
A tiger striped squash; no more than a pound,
Aft gourmet delight; shall you no more be found,
Stuffed yes your are; as bell pepper might be,
Most certainly you shall; be a wonder to me,
With onions and mushrooms; and a bit of six cheese,
No doubt you shall be; much more than a tease,
Fulfilling in two ways; by my mouth and my belly,
Adding rice and a spice; makes my legs turn to jelly,
Now I bid you farewell; as you make your traverse,
Along your fine way; in my porcelain hearse.

"There's no reason to treat software any differently from other products. Today Firestone can produce a tire with a single systemic flaw and they're liable, but Microsoft can produce an operating system with multiple systemic flaws discovered per week and not be liable. This makes no sense, and it's the primary reason security is so bad today."
Bruce Schneier, Cryptogram, 16/04/2002

Creative writing demands better word selection; interactive word mapping expands your choices.

"In studying the history of the human mind one is impressed again and again by the fact that the growth of the mind is the widening of the range of consciousness, and that each step forward has been a most painful and laborious achievement. One could almost say that nothing is more hateful to man than to give up even a particle of his unconsciousness. Ask those who have tried to introduce a new idea!"
Carl Jung
Swiss psychologist (1875 - 1961)

ABOUT: The conception and birth of V.O.I.D.

V.O.I.D. evolved in my sleep; becoming a waking dream which was then compounded by intuitive leaps. Formerly known as "w2w_Webfly's World" this site became the centerpiece of my socio-economic network. As such, the webfly persona no longer served as an iconoclastic representation of what I do here in CyberVille. I am still w2w_Webfly on many sites and will stay such for a while; perhaps gradually shifting screen names to w2wScribe. An attempt to establish an AIM profile registered the name but, not the profile. Ready, fire AIM.

"The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience."
