So: there was a female security guard at my college who seemed to be fairly young, had crazy blond streaks in her brown hair, and wore these insane silver sunglasses that looked like they were from the FUTURE. I used to joke that she probably wanted to hang out with my friends and I, since we were awesome, but she just couldn’t, since it probably would be breaking through the tough-gal security image she had to maintain as part of her guarding. Anyway, I called her Rave Cop.
I had a couple of hours alone with my 4-track and a drum machine, thought of Rave Cop for some reason. I considered that she might actually be a superhero-in-training, having to prove herself as a guard before the superhero thing could finally take off. Part of the Superhero Union rules or something. And that she probably wished she could’ve said hey.
You know, I don’t reallyneed it & of course I don’t want to spend money on something I don’t reallyneed. So ANYWAY I talked to Customer Support a few minutes ago, you know: no big deal. This is more or less how it went down:
ME: “Hi there. I can’t afford to keep my Cable Television service right now. I still want the High Speed Internet, though. D’you mind cancelling the TV? Thanks.”
THEM: “What if I help you lower your bill by giving you six months of Cable Television for free.”
ME: “Wow, really? What? You’re joking.”
THEM: “No joke. Aaaand it’s done. Your bill just went down by more than 50%. Can I help you with anything else today?”
ME: “Get over here right now because I’m going to french you.”
So nao podera falar assim do meu amor Que bem maior que voce pode encontrar Voce passou a musica e esqueceu o principal Que no peito dos desafinados No fundo do peito bate calado No peito dos desafinados tambem bate um coracao
(I just did naughty things to my iPhone, and now I can receive Skype calls while I’m wandering around town on the 3G network. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH 21st CENTURY. When do I get my flying car and silver jumpsuit.)

Abstract The Tibesti massif, one of the most prominent features of the Sahara desert, covers an area of some 100,000 km2. Though largely absent from scientific inquiry for several decades, it is one of the world’s major volcanic provinces, and a key example of continental hot spot volcanism.
