I am a teacher and musician etc..help runa record label and am mainly a metal head although anything good with a soul gets my vote...plastic pop stay away!
Bring on the UFP! and in the words of Bill hicks -
The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think that it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured, and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question - is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us. They say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride.' And we...kill those people. Ha ha ha. 'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride. SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and family. This just has to be real.' It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because: it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings, and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourselves off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what you can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defence each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace.
"Roop looked around the bridge as it seemed quieter at the moment, he noticed that some had left their stations, which is fine for now, the waiting can be the hardest part. He turned his attention back to the admiral as he finished is last…"
"She returns his smile with a bright one of her own. "Actually Doctor, I'm here to ask you that question." She takes a few steps closer to him to speak at a more comfortable distance. "Admiral S'Ran suggests you have some…"
"Just so everyone knows...I'll be in and out so to speak as I am facing extreme difficulties with my ex wife, her family, and my son. Those of you who do pray...it would be appreciated. (raises one eyebrow) LL&P \V/"
"(as my XO finishes speaking, an ensign brings me a padd) (Ensign Latchy) a message from starfleet for you Admiral..(said with a soft voice and bright smile) (S'Ran) Thank you Ensign..that will be all for now... (Looks at it) Well Number One..a…"
