Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Finkleman's Forty-Fives Drive Me Homicidal


This guy on the radio. Danny Finkleman, is driving me crazy again. He does the oldies but goodies show on Saturday night.

Tonight he is bitching about the names of drugs. He is saying "Aspirin, what the hell is that anyways? acety.. assidity... assadilicalen... assetylacine acid... and how about Tylenol ? Some huge long chemical name, who can remember these long stupid chemical names? Why don't they call chemicals something short like "flywheel". Yeah 'I just invented flywheel acid" or how about "bricklayer, yeah, bricklayer acid"... now why can't they do something simple like that so people can remember what the hell it is and it has a short memorable name?? Why can't they do that, huh?

How I want to go into the radio and BEAT THE IDIOT TO DEATH with a bottle of Aspirin or Tylenol.

WHAT DOES HE THINK the words "ASPIRIN" and "TYLENOL" ARE, if they are not simple, easy to remember names like "flywheel" or "bricklayer"??

Duh! Duh! Duh!

And as for the chemical names... no one can look at "flywheel" or "bricklayer" or "aspirin" or "tylenol" and tell what sort of chemical it is.

Anyone who KNOWS anything about chemical names knows they mean something. All those endings tell you whether or not the hydrogen is attached in a double bond or not... or whether it is an acid or an alcohol. Geesh.

How can anyone be PAID to rant on the radio for two hours every single week, and say such stupid things?? I dunno.

This is not the most stupid, just the most current.


I wish they'd just play the music.
