Old art can be used as the basis of making new art without legal redress.

It is so easy to make laws for other people so the eleventh commandment will be today and all the days after this day
(11) Thou shalt not make laws against other man nor woman, thou shalt have laws for your own life and habits.

The purpose of this law is to end civil marriages and to create a healthy society for our children.

As of July 1st 2014 every couple between one male and one female legalizing their union by the Church and the Judge automatically receive an apartment in the Washington DC metro area. Section 4.3.6

Metric System

If I had to create a law for the day then without a doubt I would make it against the law to use the english system of measurement. The metric system is where it’s at guys. Really. I will never understand why we have to be so special and use a completely different system than the rest of the world and then we struggle when we have to convert! I think this will make it easier for Americans to get used to using it, that way if they want to travel they do not have to need assistance or google to convert things.

I guess the people that would be against it are the people who feel like they will never travel and therefore will never need to know the metric system. However, I see no harm at all in knowing this other system.

Please make this happen.

Law of Everything

I’d like to create a law not of Man but of Nature.

If the laws of Nature are efforts to summarize widespread displays of order (Gleiser, June 26, 2013,

then I’d like to see the Law of Everything — that is a law that the Theory of Everything (I’m for Garrett Lisi’s E8 model ) is correct.

With the Theory of Everything securely in place, we can stop wasting our time theorizing and get something done.

Driving test for seniors

The law that I will create is a mandatory driving test that will be taken yearly by anyone over the age of 70 years old. This law will ensure that every driver is a safe driver, and that those who are not will be taken off the road. Some, not all, seniors are a danger to the roads due to their poor eyesight, slow driving speeds that disrupt the flow of traffic in some areas, and possibly slow reaction times to every day dangers on or in the road. The seniors who pass the test will be able to continue to drive, but those who are deemed unable or dangerous on the road to themselves or others will have their license revoked. This will provide other jobs to come into the market like taxis or home caretakers that drive the person around.

This law will help with road safety issues and overall accidents as well as deadly accidents that are the result of poor driving by seniors.

I think a lot of people will be for it, just because a lot of people have been in the situation where an elderly person was clearly not able to operate the vehicle properly or safely anymore.

The people against this law would obviously be the elderly themselves who are not willing to give up their independence just yet, as well as the caretakers that they might have who may not be willing to hire a driver in case their loved one fails their driving test.

Overall this law would be a great help on keeping those that should not be driving off the road.


No hot distraction

What is it?: Is is a law to prevent attractive people from walking by the road
What will it accomplish: I will reduce accident especially during summertime
Who will it be for?: It will be for everyone who wants to drive safely without any distractions
Who will it be against?: It’ against all the attractive males and females

Hot distraction can be defined as a super attractive guy/girl walking on the side of the road while you are driving. I mean seriously texting and driving its nothing compared to driving with a hot distraction. At least with texting your hear your phone go off and you make that decision to pick it up to text back. Same with alcohol you decide to drink before getting to the wheel of your vehicle. But with hot distraction is totally different you eyes just follow their hot body by the side of the road before your brain can even tell you to not look, and next thing you know you have cranes in front of you. hot distractions can be beneficial to other passenger of the car, but to driver it is very dangerous and something should done:) .

Routine Driver Test

What is it? What Will it Accomplish? Who will be for it? Who will be against it?

I have been commuting a lot lately, and this is one law that I want to put into effect!

“Hereby and forever more, drivers (starting on the date they receive their licence) must complete a driving course and test every 6 years.”

While this law seems a little crazy, laws change. Driver’s Ed changes. I think that people should learn anti-aggressive-driving techniques. They should also be required to remember at least prove they remember the rules of the road.

It will keep the roads so much safer!! It is crazy how many people ignore the rules, cut you off, and do whatever they want. It is unsafe, accidents are common, and stress is unfair.

This law will be for ANYONE who wants to drive or continue driving!!

It is not really against anyone, it will be to help anyone. Maybe it is against bad drivers or aggressive drivers, but overall it is supposed to be helpful.

I am sure there would be problems implementing it. I know it would take funding to do it. I am also sure that people would be upset about it.

But I got to make a law! So there it is! :)

Move Over Slow Drivers

I don’t know how many of you drive on I95 on a regular basis, but I believe we have all come across those who do not understand that slower traffic keeps right. Not much is done about these oblivious drivers who love to cause traffic and backups for miles. They continuously cause problems on the highway and therefore should be punished outright. I propose we enact a law that punishes those who drive slow in the fast lane by impounding their vehicle, suspending their license for a year, and force them to use public transportation.

I can’t think of a single individual who would be against this new law except those who obviously can’t handle driving at a higher rate of speed. It’s a simple law that will alleviate much of the congestion on our major highways. There will be less road rage as well because I believe that this law will take away half of the cause of such anger. I say move over slow drivers!!! The law is coming to get you!!

We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and they are endowed by their creator by certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of saxophone playing.

That to secure these rights, Mac N Cheese are instituted among Men, deriving their powers from the consent of the cheese. And to institute some new cheese, laying its foundation on such principles and organising its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to have to involve Talky Tina in their Safety and Happiness.

Make Art, Not The Mean Word

I just said my One Law up there in the title.

So now that that is out of the way, and because all of the HTML would be zapped away if I put it in here, then I have to use the spelling trick to tell you to go see the animated GIF and other pictures that go along with my One Law.

So, to see all that good stuff, you have to go to aitch tee tee pee colon slash slash iamtalkytina dot com and then look for the post called “Make Art, Not The Mean Word,” which if you go right now will be the newest post, but if you go later then I will have since been prolific and made more posts (probably) so you will have to search for it but I won’t spell it all out because that would take too long.

So, in conclusion, my One Law is this:

Make Art, Not The Mean Word.

Well bye.

An Act Concerning the Performance of the Daily Create

Written by byzantiumbooks bill on July 1, 2014 10:44 am
Leave a comment

Whereas, the Daily Create was developed as suggested creative activity, and the founders had no intention of enslaving the participants to time-bound constraints; and

Whereas, the Daily Create is instrumental in causing an increase in creativity amongs and within participants; and

Whereas, no Daily Create participant has ever actually completed the daily Daily Create daily every day (although some have come close);

Therefore, let it be established and published, that effective 1 July 2014, and retroactive to the beginning of time, that

1. Everyone is encouraged to complete as many, or as few, Daily Create assignments as they individually and severally desire.

2. No penalty shall attach to not completing a Daily Create on the date it is published.

3. No penalty shall attach to completing Daily Create assignments on dates other than published, even previous Daily Create assignments retroactively to TDC001.

4. No penalty shall attach to never completing a specific Daily Create, or any at all.

5. Notwithstanding items 1 – 4, anyone who has every completed even a single Daily Create, now, then, or whenever, may good-naturedly admonish, call out, encourage, and generally roust others into participation. But such encourager should be prepared for feedback.

6. As the Daily Create activity is self-directed and voluntary, no funding is to be appropriated to enforce this Act.

Approved, witnessed, and sealed this 1th Day of July, in the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Fourteen.
