Why exactly is it dorky to snort when you laugh? Is there a reason for this or is it just one of those bizarre cultural things?

Surprisingly, I, an extremely politically opinionated person, did not vote yesterday. Although it is true that part of the reason I didn't vote is that I have been so wrapped up in other shit that I didn't even realize yesterday was election day, nor did I bother to find out where my polling place is--well, those things are true because the following is true.

I moved to this town in June. I don't know shit about what goes on here, I don't know who the candidates were, I don't know anything about the community other than how to find my way to the grocery store and the mall.

And I do not think it's a good idea to vote when you don't have a clue about whom you're voting for. I think it's a disservice to yourself, your community and the process of democracy to vote based on "this name sounds cooler than that one", which would have been the best I had to offer.

I know there weren't any, like, actual laws being voted on that I might care about, because there are no "vote no on 1" or whatever signs around the neighborhood. If there had been, I would have found out about that and probably got all het up about something and gone and voted.

But I didn't; I would not have been able to make an informed decision. So I stayed home.
