Retirement is good. A few months ago, I set up my computers and phone so that twitter could not function on them. I was trying to quit twitter for a while but couldn’t do it so I just made sure that twitter could not enter my life in any way. It was a great decision and has improved my life greatly. I would recommend it to anyone who uses twitter who would like to have more time and energy to accomplish things that they wanted to do in their life before twitter existed.

Twitter was very fun for a while but it has become a cesspool. I contributed to that cesspool at times but, in general, my twitter was extremely successful. I entertained thousands and arguably millions of people. I know that people have been trying to talk to me on twitter but whatever those people are saying will never make it to me. You may want to try more conventional methods of communication. If you are not interested in doing that, you might be surprised to find out that I do not care.

I conducted an experiment to see if banging my head against a brick wall for two months would accomplish more than using twitter for two months. As it turns out, banging your head against a brick wall for two months actually accomplishes an infinite amount more than using twitter for two months. I’m here for anyone who wants a scholarly debate in an appropriate setting but twitter mainly just gives the people tweeting a temporary burst of dopamine in the brain that tricks them into thinking that they did something important. The effect is similar to the effect that cocaine has on a person’s brain.

The person who is President right now had a lot of mean things said about him on twitter before the election. The mean things said about this person were intended to stop that person from becoming President. Despite having many mean things said about him on twitter, this person still won the election. In my opinion, this proves that saying mean things on twitter about a person running for office does not really help the cause of the person saying the mean things. If I wanted to change things, I probably would stop doing the exact same thing that has been proven to be ineffective but who am I to judge such tactics?

If likes and retweets resulted in election victories then saying mean things on twitter would be the best idea ever. However, that is not how the American electoral process works and, unless you dropped out of school prior to age 12, you would have been educated about the electoral college. If you don’t remember it then that is your fault and not the fault of your school. In addition to grade school education, there is a place called a library that has books in it that you can read for free. If you can not read then you might have trouble voting but I think that you should still be able to. However, if you are going to be mad at the electoral college, you have to be mad at it when your candidate wins and not just when your candidate loses.

Hating the person who is President will not stop that person from being President. It actually will not accomplish a single thing other than making you feel sad or angry. The people who like that President will be happy that you are sad or angry. Giving the opposition exactly what it wants is probably another example of a strategic mistake but I am a complete idiot so what do I know?

I believe that attaching one’s identity to a particular political party is one of the dumbest things that a person can possibly do in a free society. It is understandable for one’s identity to be linked to their religion but it is illogical to link your identity to your political party. When you link your identity to your political party, you are choosing for your political party to become your religion.

Politicians are not meant to be worshipped in America. A refusal to worship leaders as gods is one of the main reasons why America became a separate country from England. Over time, some educated people seem to have forgotten this. Additionally, both sides of the aisle undeniably seek and accept corporate contributions which makes America a Corporatocracy and not a Democracy.

In conclusion, Twitter sucks now. It is still better than Facebook, something that I have tried to use a little more, but I think that all social media platforms are pretty limited in their usefulness. I am going to maintain my twitter retirement and enjoy all of the positive things in my life. I wish you all the best in accomplishing whatever your goals and dreams are these days. David Letterman and I are currently having a post-retirement beard growing contest.

I usually try to write funny stories or comments on Nacho Donut and then make fake pictures for them but for this topic I just needed to state facts and show real pictures.

Today is a special Two for Tuesday music video day at Nacho Donut. The state of Iran is so crazy right now that I just keep thinking about Flock of Seagulls. I know it is supposed to be pronounced “E-Ron” but whatever. It is really fucked up to see what is going on over there but many revolutions throughout history have began following similar killings during protests and something like that could be good for Iran, the United States, and basically anyone in the world who is not down with genocide for the sake of religion. It seems like it is mostly young people in Iran who are against the bullshit over there, and with two thirds of their population being under 30 (wikipedia what up) things could continue to escalate in the future even if nothing changes for the time being.

Although this might seem like something that could slow or prevent Iran from developing or using a nuclear weapon, it could also speed up the process. It is not really out of the question to think that Iran could have some nukes stashed somewhere that could have been “misplaced” after the fall of the Soviet Union. (Russia and Iran share a border, they have been trade partners, both governments are shady…). In addition to that, Uranium is a natural resource to Iran and everyone knows that they want a nuclear weapon. Having nuclear weapons to countries is what having a cell phone was like to individual people. At first only a few people have it, then more people have it, and then you are eventually a loser if you don’t have one so you have to get one. With so many countries around Iran having nuclear capabilities it is naive to think that acquiring the same technology is not something they are desperately seeking. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stated that Iran only wants  to have a nuclear energy program but how much sense does that make when your oil reserves are the third largest in the world (Wikipedia)? That dude does not care about the environment. He reminds me a of a villain from an 80’s movie. Villains from 80’s movies are jealous of that guy.

Anyways, where am I going with this? Sometimes I just start writing stuff so I don’t even know. Oh yeah. Here it is. If somewhere down the road a revolution in Iran seems imminent, those in power might just decide to use one of their nukes (if they have one) because they will know that it could be there only chance to do so. They might know that they are going down and just say fuck the world (literally). If their leaders know that they are going to be overthrown and they have a nuclear weapon at their disposal then they just might blow some shit up with it. It could be a conspiracy theory that I have just concocted from sleep deprivation but it isn’t that ridiculously out of the question to not consider it as a potential future scenario. I hope that this does not happen because if it does, Nacho Donut will probably be shut down by the C.I.A. or something. Then people will call me Nachodamus.
