Government regulation is the main reason there are no jobs. I am 100% in agreement with Denninger's point, here. Why would anyone want to go into business for himself when he has to comply with reams of red tape?

Denninger again on the subject of "gender change". These points are doubly true when it comes to people who claim to be men but have functioning uteri and remain capable of bearing children.

I was intent on writing more commentary about these things, but I'm tired.
Yesterday was pretty exhausting. This whole week--I haven't been able to sleep in at all, not even once; today is the closest I've come to it. Every day was filled with chores and errands--work that I wanted to get done and now was the time--so I don't begrudge it, but I do regret it.
Our day yesterday began with the alarm going off at 9 AM, and once we got going it was go, go, go, go, go the entire time until we got home after 10 PM.
The show--Cirque du Soleil's Kurios--was extremely entertaining, as expected, but it was held at United Center on the same day as the Air and Water Show, so we had to leave early because we feared the traffic. We went with Mrs. Fungus' friend S., and S.'s mother drove, so I was spared that chore. In fact, I read almost all of Heinlein's Space Cadet while in the car. Mrs. Fungus had suggested that I bring a book along, so I did.
This show was not as intensely technical as Dralion was, but it was still pretty f-ing amazing stuff. I was particularly impressed with the trampoline act, including the way the acrobats could modulate the trampoline--merely by shifting their weight--to change how much energy the active jumper got from it on each bounce. All the acts were vastly entertaining, and as usual it was an impressive display of what the human body is capable of.
...but I am very tired, and want only to rest today...and that's what I intend to do. I'm not going to do anything I don't feel like doing, with two notable exceptions: I'm going to clean the cat box, and I'm going to go buy some lunch-type supplies for the coming week. End of list.
And who can blame me? I took a non-running, non-drivable car, and converted it back into a fully usable vehicle, needing only some minor adjustment to be 100% again, and I did it with one $2 part and a bunch of elbow grease.
I am hoping to be able to cut the grass tomorrow, or Tuesday...or perhaps Wednesday...after work. I don't really expect to be able to, because of "first week fatigue" and such, but you never know. At least I am remaining open to the possibility that I'll be able to do it.
Saturday, if not. Or perhaps Sunday.
The only problem I really see with this training schedule is getting used to it. Once I'm in the groove it won't be a problem, but then about the time that I'm fully acclimated to it I'll then shift to my production schedule, which will mean starting my day some seven hours later...which will mean, again, getting used to a new schedule. Since that schedule will be much closer to my natural circadian rhythm, though, it should not be as hard to adjust to it.
But that's tomorrow. Today I have a couple of minor chores to do and nothing else, and I have five hours before I absolutely must have them accomplished. So, to hell with worry...at least for today.
