Bah, Humans

I'm feeling particularly cynical today, dunno why. Of course, if I were talking to people, I wouldn't be...but as long as I'm just sitting here, I'm feeling my natural hatred for the humans be more than normal.

A couple months ago, we decided we wanted the 'Invader Zim' DVDs, and hit the local Suncoast, where they had only volumes 1 and 3. Collapse )

Speaking of human-hating, get this: According to this article, Aubrey de Grey, a Cambridge researcher in aging and rejuvenation (who needs a serious talking-to about his beard), believes that, in 25 years, technology and genome work will have gone far enough that people could start living 1,000-year lifetimes. Christ, kill me when that starts to happen, PLEASE. These people suck hard enough when they live 77 years. I'm serious, I want no part of it.

This too: A presidential aide revealed Bush's iPod playlist. Why the FUCK would anyone give a rotting rat's ass? (Answer: because this aide is looking for a few bucks, and couldn't find anything more revealing.) Fuckin' Hell, let the man listen to whatever he wants while he bikes, I couldn't care less. What REALLY gets me is that anyone would ANALYZE this playlist; one reporter noted: "No black artists, no gay artists, no world music, only one woman, no genre less than 25 years old, and no Beatles." Well, fuck-a-doodle-doo. Big whoop.

On the flipside, I want two of these purses for Dianna and Jessica. Way cool.

Hey, dig the figure Di got me yesterday:

A pirate walked into a bar and the bartender said, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened? You look terrible".
"What do you mean?" said the pirate, "I feel fine"
"What about the wooden leg? You didn't have that before."
"Well, we were in a battle and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I'm fine now".
"Well, ok, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?"
"We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. My hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook. I'm fine, really".
"What about that eye patch?"
"Oh, one day we were at sea and a flock of birds flew over. I looked up and one of them shit in my eye".
"You're kidding," said the bartender, "you couldn't lose an eye just from some bird doo-doo?"
"It was my first day with the hook"

Britney Spears, You Are A Dumb Cunt

The tabloids and magazines have been saying lately that she's pregnant, noting her fuller figure, etc. (which could have something to do with all the junk food and alcohol the little white-trash bimbo is pictured with), and she's been flatly denying it. Going out of her way to vehemently deny it, even. So why is she bothering now to "reveal" that she, in fact, IS pregnant? Yeah, um, dear...we already knew, and you lied, badly.

Now, is anyone else nauseous at the thought of her breeding? And, did she not notice that this schmoe she's married has two other kids, one of which was just about to be born when he left it's momma and married her? Yeah, real daddy material, there, Brit. I love the fact that he sports this fedora to look cool, but has to walk around with his chin up so he can see under the low-pulled brim. That's not fashion, there, Kev, that just plain stupid.

I, for one, fear that it's gonna look about like that deformed little pooch she walks around with. And a little bit like the dog, too. ;) She's trying so hard to seem like the fairy-tale princess, the happily-ever-after success story, and she comes off like a serious waste of oxygen. Someone kick her back to the trailer park, please.

Good job...I'll make grillers of you yet. yes, the way to do it was to cook burger 1, side 1 and burger 2, side 1 for five minutes, then flip burger 1 and put on burger 3, side 1, for five minutes (burger 1 is now done), then do burgers 2 and 3, side 2, for five minutes.

OK, easy one today, that a surprising number of people get wrong:
It is a well-known fact that metal expands under heat. If you held a solid piece of iron, that is in the shape of a doughnut, over extreme heat, will the hole in the centre of the iron doughnut grow larger, smaller, or will it remain the same?

On A Fuckin' Roll Today, Folks

Irked by the success of the nationwide Day of Silence, which seeks to combat anti-gay bias in schools, conservative activists are launching a counter-event this week called the Day of Truth aimed at mobilizing students who believe homosexuality is sinful.

OK, stop whatcha doin', 'cause I'm about to ruin the image and the style that you're used to. Wasn't the whole point of the 'Day of Silence' to peacefully say "here's a thought, stop beating down people just because you don't agree with them"? Students chose to organize this, and pulled it off...so, now, a religious and political group wants to "counter" it with an aggressive, loud, in-your-face protest, effectively. Oh, they say, it's meant to be "peaceful and respectful," but Mike Johnson, an Alliance Defense Fund attorney, made it clear it is motivated by belief that homosexuality is wrong. "You can call it sinful or destructive -- ultimately it's both," he said. So, the day after thousands of students, nationwide, choose to remain silent, showing quiet support for an idea they believe in, harming and harassing no one, peacefully participating, we'll have a loud, sloganed, sponsored protest, by a bunch of people who actually seem to think that people who believe differently than they believe are wrong and should be punished and subjugated.

Day of Truth, my ass. I don't know how much more plainly to put this, folks:

Belief Is Not Truth.

Belief is something YOU accept, it is not universal Truth. Moreover, morals are not truth. Morals are YOUR choice of how you conduct yourself. It is not universal Truth. Truth is based on verifiable Fact...and thus, CANNOT be applied to any mere belief, and especially cannot be applied to religion.

You want to live a certain way, you go right ahead, be my guest. When your life coincides with another's, and you try to force your way of life on another, then you have a problem. Now, my BELIEF is that we all have to live together on this rock, and it works better when we all get along. My BELIEF is that anyone's choice of sexual partner, between consenting adults, has no bearing on YOUR life. If you can come up with some FACTUAL way that shows me this belief is in error, then by all means, bring it on.

The funniest part related to all this sort of goings-on is that these are the same uptight people who claim THE REST OF US are obsessed with sex. Wait, WE'RE the ones obsessed with sex? Who is it that goes through the Disney films, looking for prurient things? Who is it that claims women are sexual objects? Who is it that wants to know who everyone else is fucking? I'll take the Uber-Conservative Jesus Crispies for $400, Alex. If there was anyone obsessed with sex, it's that group that apparently isn't getting any. Who wants to start a new lobbying group to get them laid? Seems like they'd chill out if they just had regular, guilt-free orgasms.

I hate it here.

Connection Blues

Fuckin' Comcast went out for several hours today...AGAIN. Third time in a week and a half. Had no problems with them for a flippin' YEAR, and now they're going to Hell. isisinvinyl, don't you work for them? What's the dilly, yo?

Actually, the thing that pissed me off the most? I've worked for ISPs, and so I'm generally understanding about problems, but this time I finally opted to call...and their damn phone system hung up on me, every time.

Grrr.

Oh well, we had the game tonight, instead of tomorrow (school thing for Erik tomorrow night), and that went well. Updates later tomorrow. Other good news, corachaos contacted me about doing some work...YAY!
