"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

Aspirin Cake

The following recipe comes from a cookbook I found in my sister's cabinet. It's Our Own 'Little" Cookbook, Recipes From Little Elementary (Dr. John R. Little Elementary School, Arvada, Colorado, 1982)

Aspirin Cake is a recipe donated by Vicki Droney who, at the time, evidently had three small children.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Turn down T.V. Remove toys from counter-top.
Measure 2 cups flour. Get baking powder.
Remove John's hands from flour.
Put flour, baking powder and salt in sifter.
Vacuum mixture off kitchen floor (John spilled it).
Get an egg.
Answer phone.
Separate egg and warm Adam's bottle.
Help Mary figure out a new math problem (the old reliable way).
Gease pan; salesman at the door.
Take 1/4 inch of salt from greased pan and look for John.
Put mess in wastebasket, dishes in dishwasher.
Call the bakery.
Take an Aspirin.
