Hello world!

Featured

As you may know, I’ve created a lot of websites, and I also created a number of Google blogs (Blogger) associated with them. If you found it confusing, join the crowd. 😉

I recently got rid of some of my websites and consolidated several others. The original GeoWorld, GeoZoo, GeoSymbols and Politix sites are now all based at both www.geobop.com and www.geostacks.com. In other words, most articles are displayed on both sites, with a twist or two.

More recently still, I started working with WordPress, which is nicer than Google Blogger in so many ways. The rest is history: This blog replaces the Google blogs originally associated with these sites.

Most blog posts will be classified in one of four categories: World, Life, Politix and Symbols.

I probably won’t do a lot of work on this blog for the next couple months, as I’m quite busy with my political campaign — I’m running for Washington State Governor.

However, my campaign has already been an incredibly educational experience, and I will certainly make a few blog posts on the Washington/Seattle political scene. For example, I’ll tell you how one county tried to censor the statement I submitted for the Voters Pamphlet.

Watch for another post discussing a new word I coined as a more accurate alternative to the grossly manipulated word antisemitism: Jewarchy.

Eventually, I’ll find time to get back to my first great love, animals, which get more bizarre by the day. I just recently learned that at least some crocodilians eat significant amounts of fruit. And I’m still scratching my head over the report that the Amazon may be fertilized by the remains of prehistoric fish carried by the wind from an ancient lake bed in the Sahara Desert halfway around the world to South America.

And if you’re interested in science and politics both, then you’ll want to hear what I’ve learned about genetically modified food, along with Bill Gates’ investment in the so-called "Doomsday Seed Vault."

We live on a strange planet in an even stranger universe, which may be just part of a much bigger multiverse. Some of the things happening on our planet are kind of scary, but learning the truth about them can make them less scary. So throw your blinders away, and let’s explore the world around us, along with the world inside our minds…
