Weirdest Dream lately :
I dreamed I was on the "other side" when my Dad was passing. I spoke to him and made sure he was okay. Then I woke, and knew he was gone. 30 minutes later, we got the call from the hospital saying that his blood pressure had crashed in the last 30 minutes.

Kids are a pain in the ass

Unless you are Michael Jackson, in which case, you're the pain in their ass
I've been thinking a lot lately about whether or not I want kids. Not right now, because that's a no-brainer. But down the line, before I really do get too old. My thoughts on the subject came down two ways. On the one hand, I think the world is a shitty place, that will only get worse with time. The people who own and run this world will, I think, consolidate their power over us and our basic freedoms will be curtailed until we are little more than consumer/slaves. I don't think it's fair to bring a child into a world like that.
On the other hand, children can make a lot of things easier, especially for an adult growing older. They provide a sense of continuity. They give you the illusion of a legacy. Of immortality. And they are the unwitting vessals of our dreams for a better future, and a better life than we have made for ourselves.
Ultimately, all the reasons I can think of for having children are selfish ones.

Am I really that selfish?
