Bluetooth Against Bush

What, you ask, is Bluetooth Against Bush?

Its a subtle way to show your solidarity with the anti-Bush movement and discover people in your immediate vicinity who feel the same way. When you are in a crowded area, you can use your bluetooth enabled device to scan for other bluetooth devices. If you find other devices named “Bluetooth Against Bush,” then you know other participants are within 15 ft. of you!

While not quite as avant-garde as, say, toothing, it’s probably a lot more socially acceptable… [Seen on Gizmodo]

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
