The Most Important Issues

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Humor, Michael Phelps, Events Nov 06 2018 · 85 views
John Williams, Michael Phelps and 1 more...
:kaukau: Sadly, the issues that really matter are not on the ballot. I almost got to meet my governor and talk about them before election day, but sadly that moment for the history books never happened.

Next election, though, I propose these core issues:
  • Convert our counting system to Base 120.
  • Pass a constitutional amendment denying the existence of Canada.
  • Change all of the lame state flags that looks alike. The ones that are okay can stay the same, but all those others need to go.
  • Make Ithkuil the official language of legal texts.
  • Recompose the national anthem so that it covers 6 octaves.
  • Officially declare that the Goddess Columbia be represented with the likeness of Whitney Houston.
  • Let John Williams come up with anthems for all of the states that have boring anthems.
  • Right next to the Statue of Liberty, build a statue of John Williams waving a conductor's wand.
  • Set our healthcare goal to, "Make John Williams live forever."
  • Draft Michael Phelps back into the Olympics. He needs to stick around until the 2028 L.A. Olympics at the very least.

Happy Indigenous People's Day (Belated)

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Events Oct 12 2018 · 57 views

:kaukau: So what I found out it that my governor, Kim Reynolds, made it so that henceforth in the state of Iowa, Columbus Day is also Indigenous People's Day at the same time. Sure, I can get behind that. I'm not Italian and don't really care much about Columbus. And frankly, the point behind that day isn't just to celebrate one man, but the whole general idea of world history including both hemispheres for the first time. Personally, I still like the idea of just calling it "New World Day," but I'm not particularly passionate about it. Honestly, who celebrates Columbus Day? Do you? I bet you don't.

Unless you're Italian. Bappa-dee boo-pee? Beepada boopada bapade bapade! Boopada bapa! Boopa beepa boopa beepa bapa! Bapeepe bape!

John Williams: Hymn to the Fallen

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Events Sep 02 2018 · 63 views
John McCain, death, America and 2 more...


:kaukau: As I have done several times on this blog, I choose to share another great work by the unparalleled John Williams.

In honor of John Sydney McCain III. Argumentative, resilient, stubborn...and a friend in spite of it all. And now he is among the Ancients.

This makes me very emotional, not just the fact that someone died, but seeing what good it has done. In my lifetime, I have not seen America so united since nearly seventeen years ago to the day. It makes me sad because I realize how rarely we all put our differences aside and feel the same joys and the same sorrows. I wish that America was like this more often, with malice toward none. I love my country far too much and regard my countrymen as true family. We send our senators from across the country to dwell with each other in one house and spend years getting to know each other -- cannot they regard each other as brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, and dare I say it — friends?

Tomorrow, we will go our separate ways, for this is what we must do. We have our disagreements and cannot disobey the dictates of our consciences. I am reminded of the Christmas Armistice during World War I, when the two sides called a ceasefire without a spoken word, but with the word of song. People set down their weapons and mingled with one another, and for a day there were no sides, no war. Then they did what they had to, and returned to their posts to start up the terrible dispute once more. There was no hatred in their hearts for their enemies, only for what they had to do.

I hope that we come together more often, that it doesn't take the death of a public legend to do so. Wouldn't it be nice if we could unite on the holidays? And then when we part and fight once more, we do so as a healthy family, with malice towards none. Because America is family.

The Death of John McCain

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Events Aug 27 2018 · 54 views
John McCain, America, USA
:kaukau: Quite famously, he made almost no friends and everybody had their strong disagreements with him. There wasn't a single person who didn't consider him to be a thorn in their side at some point. However, his character was unmistakable, and I have always respected him as a person an as a national treasure. America has lost a great hero and has concluded a major chapter in its history. Be at peace.

Canceled Hotdog Summit

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Humor, Events May 24 2018 · 169 views
Kim Jon-Un, barbecue, humor
:kaukau: I was hoping to meet with my father before work and put some hotdogs on the grill this morning. Unfortunately, that could not come to pass, and I gave him this formal Filial Statement:

Dear Mr. Old Man,


I greatly appreciate your initial availability for a barbecue schedules to take place at 12 today at your place with Siracha. I was looking forward to having lunch with you. Sadly, based on the tremendous distractedness and open apathy displayed by your most recent statement, I feel that it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this last-minute meeting. It is difficult for me to schedule a lunch when you are already mentally out to lunch. Therefore, let this letter serve to represent that the Siracha summit, for the good of both parties, but for the detriment of our local supermarket, will not take place. You talk of your cooking capabilities, but my sauces are so spicy and delicious that I pray to God they will most definitely see use.


I felt a wonderful appetite was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that appetite that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to eating with you. In the meantime, I would like to thank you for the increase of the sausages that are now at home in the refrigerator. That was a beautiful gesture and was very much appreciated.


Yes, this was in reference to something that we saw in the news this morning.

Curling in PyeongChang

Posted by Jean Valjean , in Michael Phelps, Events Feb 24 2018 · 134 views
Curling, Olympics
:kaukau: I have to give it a hand to the Edward Norton look-alike, Mr. Dad-Stache, Mr. Not-to-be-confused-with-the-creator-of-Superman, and John Landsteiner (I couldn't think of something creative for you, sorry). That epic final move in the eighth end was increadible. I fantasized that they would pull something like that off, but man, I thought I was only fantasizing. Congratulations to those guys. People all across my birthstate of Minnesota are celebrating right now. Was pretty good to see the whole thing live, and the airwaves have rightfully been replaying that game-winning moment over and over again.

The other best part of curling has been the Korean women's team, the Garlic Group. They have the most amazing Steve Urkle nerdiness, and I love their nicknames: Pancake, Sunny, Steak, and Yogurt. How can you not adore that? They have been a pleasure to watch, and I wholly root for them in the final match. Not that I want the Swedes to get kicked back to silver twice in a row (I'm part Swedish and I'm partial), but it's so difficult to not fall in love with this Korean team.

In other news...did you know that there are only sixteen luge courses in the world, and four of those are in Germany? No wonder they dominate it so much. Perhaps some American cities could start building them.
