I’ve been using FL Studio for a few years now to make techno and classical music (strange combination, I know). I just found out that if I direct people to their site to purchase their products, the people I direct there through my link will save 10% and I’ll get some money for directing people there as well. I think the coolest part of FL Studio is the Free Lifetime Upgrades. You buy it once and for the rest of your life, you can upgrade to their newest releases for free. I started back in FL Studio 6 or so and they’re at 9.7 now and they’ve made amazing improvements over the years. Anyway, below are some graphics from their site and here’s the link you can click on that will take you to their site and get 10% off the regular price for anything you buy over $90. Enjoy!

The word “truth” seems easy enough to define. I define it as being the correct knowledge of things as they are, were, and will be. An orange can be sitting on a table and that’s the truth, regardless of who sees it, who doesn’t see it, and who thinks it’s an apple. Truth exists independantly of people – so if a tree falls in a forest and nobody is around to hear it, amazingly enough, it actually does make a sound.
My perception and interpretation of the truth is irrelevant to the truth itself since I exist independantly of the truth I am perceiving. If I think it’s an apple on the table, that has no effect whatsoever upon the orange that’s actually sitting there. It may have an effect upon me and upon the apple-lovers who I tell about it though.
If truth is such an easy concept to grasp, why is the truth at times so difficult to find? I have been wondering this for several years now. This has been in the context of finding spiritual truth as well as the truth of world events such as 9/11, etc. Through my interactions with people who are seeking truth as well as looking at myself seeking the truth, I have found several things that have kept me and others from finding the truth.

A taste of bold justice. Finally. We need more calm powerful justice like this.
“In case you haven’t heard about Brian Baird a Congressman from Washington State, he is the one who said those at townhalls expressing their concerns about ObamaCARE were exhibiting a “lynch mob mentality” and “close to Brownshirt tactics,” a reference to Nazi stormtroopers. David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that he was not going to be silent anymore. So, he let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. He was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, he quickly scratched what he wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that he borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before he spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy.” – source
BRIAN BAIRD: Yes, sir.
BAIRD: Hi David.
HEDRICK: And uh, first of all I want to let everybody know since this is the thing tonight that I’m a marine corp vet. [applause]
BAIRD: Thank you David.
HEDRICK: And like you, I swore an oath to defend my constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. [applause] Now, I heard you say tonight about educating our children, indoctrinating our children, whatever you want to call it
BAIRD: I didn’t say indoctrinating.
HEDRICK: Stay away from my kids. [applause] I also heard you say that you’re gonna let us keep our health insurance. Well thank you! It’s not you’re right to decide whether or not I keep my current plan or not. That’s my decision. [applause] Now I’ve heard recently in the media that you and some other people on the national political stage call us brownshirts because we oppose…
HEDRICK: Ok, well thanks for apologizing, but let, uh, I won’t speak to you then, I’ll speak to others. But I’ll remind you, a little history lesson, the Nazis were the national socialist party. They were leftist. They took over the finance. They took over the car industry. They took over healthcare in that country. If Nancy Pelosi wants to find a swastika, maybe the first place she should look is the sleeve on her own arm. [applause] Now what I want to know is, you’ve done a lot of things that violate your constitutional oath as you know. What I want to know is as a marine, as a disabled veteran that served this country, I have kept my oath. Do you ever intend to keep yours?
BAIRD: Yes I do.

This article discusses how we go along with failed environmentalist scheme after failed environmentalist scheme partly because of prosperity guilt. It’s quite interesting.

After receiving a speeding ticket and taking an on-line driver’s safety course, I found a link in that course that took me to trafficwaves.org. Absolutely amazing! It describes how a single driver can completely destroy a huge traffic jam by putting some space in front of him before entering the jam. It talks about the wave patterns in traffic and many other things. The author of the site has single-handedly broken up many traffic jams already with these simple techniques. It’s also interesting that virtues such as patience and generosity are through this experiment shown to increase efficiency in traffic flow. It also shows how the vices of impatience and greed can cause a backward travelling wave of jammed cars behind him that can last for hours and it decreases the efficiency of the highway – so the most aggressive person in the jam is causing and increasing the jam and is slowing himself down without knowing it. Check out the site – it’s quite interesting!
