Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

Randall Munroe

Spirit, a mars rover, survived 21.6 times longer than its scheduled life span. Mr. Munroe made me cry by dramatizing Spirit's story in his 695 xkcd comic. In short, Mr. Munroe is a sadistic asshole, and I hope he reads this and feels bad about himself.

So, I am continuing on my ab journey. I think I will only post weekly pictures. A friend from high school has expressed interest in running with me when the weather turns. I hope that works out.

Uh... Violet is scratching herself bloody. We have put a humidifier in her room and are slathering her in baby eczema cream. Kim is resisting the idea of duct taping mittens to her hands. I think Violet is as stubborn and as crazy as me, and that it may be inevitable.

We shall see.
