Welcome to my World of Wonderment

Our planet is a neat place, full of weird and unusual people doing weird and unusual things. One oddball thing I like to do is geocache. What other activity is there that makes people travel hundreds of miles to climb a mountain, wade a river, and fight a Bigfoot, just to be the first person to sign a piece of paper rolled up in a 35mm film canister stuffed in the knot hole of a tree? I can't think of any other sport that has such a great mix of technology and the wonderful outdoors. A lot of geocaches are placed in a beautiful setting, or hidden in a challenging or unique way, or in a historical setting. Geocaching allows the finder to share in some of the hiders favorite places, and along the way you get to meet some interesting characters, and occasionally learn something new. While this blog is primarily a geocaching blog, I also use this place to post the occasional funny video or weird news story, or as a platform to rant or rave about something I really have to share. But for the most part this website is about you, the weirdo walking around in circles, talking into your GPS unit like it's a phone, pretending your taking pictures of a phone booth to find find the tiniest micro-cache, or circling your car around and around a light pole in a parking lot trying to retrieve a cache without even getting out of your car.

Off Limits My Ass

Sarah Palin is trying to be the next Vice President of the United States. The only real experience at leadership she has is being a parent. And we aren't supposed to point out how ironic it is that this abstinence loving, no condom wearing, bury our head in the sand when it comes to sex candidate, has a pregnant teenager? How is she supposed to help run a country when she can't even handle her own children?

Just because she doesn't support sex-ed programs, doesn't mean she has here head in the sand about it. I don't support such programs except as taught in my house. And just because a daughter becomes pregnant, doesn't mean she's not "controlling" her family. When did YOU start haveing sex? And lastly, leading a state government is no small task regardless of the state's size

"Size" meaning population...

You are missing my point realdave. Abstinence first programs are always doomed to fail because of your exact point, when did I first start having sex? I was porking everything I could lay my tiny, snot stained, grubby little hands on, from about 4 years old on. I screwed the dog, the cat, and the gold fish. As does every red blooded, flag waving, American male, which is EXACTLY why we must teach kids about condoms in schools. Palin, as you said "has her head in the sand" because she thinks kids think like adults and they don't, they are kids, they don't know the consequences of what they do yet, they are kids. They haven't lived long enough to realize that their actions may come back and haunt them. You can't tell a kid, don't have sex. Sex is all around us. Sex is what our society is based on, the free market of the entire world is based on sex. And people want to tell kids, who are plugged in, jacked up, and more aware to our culture than the adults are, that they shouldn't have sex? And we expect the kid to listen to us?

My point is, Palin, and all the religious "right" and anybody else with "their head in the sand" about sex, are morons and they shouldn't be put into places of power and allowed to set policy.
