Smackdown!: Chaos vs. Inertia


What is it?: The state of utter confusion.

Pros: Can be strangely exciting.

Cons: Really gave Maxwell Smart a hard time. Form of the word was the title of the Britney Spears/K-Fed "reality" show. Exhausting.


What is it?: Indisposition to motion, exertion, or change.

Pros: Rather like taking a nice, long nap, and who doesn't like naps?

Cons: Like when you had mono, after this nap, you don't feel like getting out of bed.

The winner: Inertia. Man, I could really use a nap right now.

Hm. Now that I think about it, isn't the W. administration a strange combination of chaos and inertia? Think about it: The White House keeps doing things that cause utter chaos, but then it digs in its heels and won't change. Odd.
