"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."
Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)
And now, the current weather, from some random person we pulled off the street:

And at Walmart, 15 Feet From the Toy Aisle...
This rather disturbing plug in light was displayed one aisle over from the Barbee dolls at our local Walmart.
And yes, it is "life size."
Somebody is either very, very stupid or very, very amused.
Then again, I shouldn't be shocked. Go to your bathroom and look at your shampoo and cologne bottles. Not to mention your cream rinse itself. Or take a look at the shape of your beer bottle.
But this light was really "over the line" for me. I mean, Motion Fun Light??!? Am I the only one who sees these things? I feel like the kid who was the only one who would say the emporer was naked.
* Note: Since this photo was taken, I have also spotted a similar product in CVS pharmacy. However, it was not called a "Motion Fun Light."
