For context. I live in a flat with some cats and things and also Johan Gasmask. He's my special friend, I suppose, well, a closer friend now than in times past. He's got a great sense of humor, and is an excellent cook. But anyway.
So today I was reading a wikipedia article on 1984, and snickered at the following:
However, Orwell may also have been influenced by Nazi Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, who once, in a debatable hyperbolic display of loyalty to Adolf Hitler, declared, "If the Führer wants it, two and two make five!" 
In other news, it's July 20th, the anniversary of another friend's Ill fated attempt on the Fuhrer. Because wiring a bomb is a lot more effective if you have both eyes and all your fingers.
He reminds me a bit of Nelson in that way, except cuter. Nelson spoiled it with a certain psychotic air. Not that I know from experience. I was screwing up the first time. Well the first time that matters. But that's another angst for another time.
Stauffy, we salute you. You tried dammit. Effort for teh win.

P.S. -- I love this one:
The song "The Panama Deception" by Anti-Flag begins with the text "Their two plus two does not equal four. Their two plus two equals whatever they want us to die for."
