careful, i'm not being as friendly and charming as i could be in this post. that being said, someone has to say it.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Ok, it's been mentioned before, blogged, discussed, we've all patted each other on our digital backs and added a few power points.
now, do we all feel better that we got that out of our systems? can we get on with a little action? or is this a feel-good facebook knock off?
other than reading and networking, whats goin on here folks?
how are your first aid / emergency response skills?
how about building skills? any good with a hammer, nails, powertools, gluegun?
do you kill your houseplants or can you garden? do you have a garden?
you can blog, but can you fix your computer?
and other than talking about what we can do, or you out doing it?
now i know some of you can and some of you are, so lets focus on some action here.
here's my challenge to you, go _do_ something. teach someone something useful. organize a first responder group. rip out some of that grass in your yard and plant some food. do something every day and then come back here and blog about that. find people here doing the things you do and actually collaborate, maybe a little face to face action... scary i know but... its a scary world, thats what we're supposed to be dealing with here, right?
now i might not get featured cause of my brusque tone, but, i don't care about the points as much as i care about doing something.
but points are part of the game and i do like games... post pictures, videos, or blogposts about what you are doing right now and add the tag NOTAGAME. i will hunt these things down and power you up.
let's get our hands dirty :D
