Marri Age for all

So, when it comes to certain issues, I have no problem stating my mind. Will it piss people off? Possibly. Does The Captain care? Not a damn bit.
My thoughts on equality: Why the hell are we squabbling over meaningless issues? Marriage should be for any couple that is in love. This could be a man and a man, a man and a woman, or a woman and a woman. As I have seen several people post and say, "What will these protestors look like in 50 some years? What will we remember about them?" For a good reference, just think back when the minorities stood up for equality, mainly the African Americans. Looking back at that whole fiasco, many state that we were idiots for fighting over that for so long. How is this any different? This is after all the Home of the Free, ain't it? Why are we one of the last nations to make this law?
I am in full support of Equal Marriage for All. This article provides an interesting take on the issue that may make you change your mind.
As a final note, consider Clint Eastwood's sentiments on this issue:
"These people who are making a big deal about gay marriage?
I don't give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody
else! Why not?!
We're making a big deal out of things we shouldn't be making a
deal out of. Just give everybody the chance to have the life
they want."

Yay for Geeks!

Saw this and thought I would share. If you are wondering, The Captain does not fit into just one of these molds. The Captain fits into many.

As many of you may or may not know, I have a huge fondness for Ubuntu. Every six months a new Ubuntu version is released. After each release there is a summit to discuss the next version and the next set of features. Before this summit, people are able to pick the brain of Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu. The questions were intriguing, but to my mind this question stood out the most. The answer to it is just more reason to love Ubuntu. Ubuntu is here to build our future. Also, follow the questions link to read the rest of the Q&A session.

Q: What do you think about Windows 8? Have you tried it? Do you think that it is a big chance for Ubuntu?

Mark: I admire some of the gutsy choices microsoft are making.
It’s difficult for them, and they are doing some things very well
credit where it is due.
We are not here because we hate anybody else.
We’re here because we have a vision of a future only we can create.
Nobody else is trying to create that – not Microsoft(!), not Google, not Red Hat, not Debian, not Arch
so, it’s up to us to build that future: free, supportable, beautiful
 and your help is much appreciated.
