So, the MP3 Experiment III was a lot of fun. We did, in fact, find Steve, the omnipotent voice from above. And Summer, my group had the winning element!

This morning I went swimming with my mom at Coney Island/Brighton Beach. I swam for about 20 minutes. I made it out to the east-most point we were swimming to, but currents preventing me from turning around, so I went in. Had an almost-scary near-interaction with one of the jetties, but managed to muscle through it. My ears hurt now and I fear it may be from the swimming. Eh, if it's still a problem by Wednesday or Thursday, I'll call the Doctor. No iPod though until they're back to normal.

shoujo_mallet feels I shouldn't call my iPod an iPod because I use Rockbox instead of the Apple firmware, and USB Mass Storage instead of iTunes. I argue that its physically an iPod.

Hung out with the Girlfriend and her lady friend. Now I'm about to go to bed. And turn off my computer because the pugglewump croud agrees that its 10 degrees C too hot for longterm use.

I've been thinking about defenses for polygamy lately. For instance, many of the arguments against polygamy are really levied against Mormon polygyny and the institution's defense to being illegal. Young girls getting abused? Would you go to Child Services if you knew that your entire family (and likely your extended family) would go to jail? Abuse of wives/children? See above. Underage girls marrying? If you can get a real license, you're more likely to abide by the laws governing it.

Anyways, as I said, bedtime!

Hmmm…Polygamy as you’re thinking of it is far different from the fundamentalist Mormon version, which is basically structured to totally oppress women and give men as much power as possible. What you’re thinking of is a situation where consenting adults cement their polyamorous relationships with marriage. Neither situation is going to be readily understood by general society, but I think you have the moral high ground in the issue.
