Funniest football game ending ever. LMAO. Wish I had recorded it. Biggest flaw in the finish to that game: not enough video of Alabama fans’ reactions.
The Voice bores me, it’s true, but my dear spouse likes to watch this dreck, so I hear it in the background as I tippy-tap the keys, but tonight I paused in my studies long enough to watch a performance by a young guy named Matthew Schuler. I must admit that it was entertaining. Okay, so he has a second-rate voice with a range from C to D, but I have never seen anyone who looked so much like he needed to drop a deuce when he sang and it made for compelling television. Those squeezed down, squinty eyes and the stress positions just screamed “Potty Break!” I kept thinking, “Will he dirty his trousers? Won’t he dirty his trousers?”
Good. If someone keeps abusing a power and it is hurting the country, then you take that power away from them That’s all it is about. I refer you to this article. It’s enough already. The Republicans discovered this toy during the Clinton administration and they have been banging it hard enough to break it ever since. The filibuster required responsible use and it is no longer being used responsibly. Time to take this toy away from the kiddies. Good on the Senate for doing that.
Thank goodness nobody reads this thing and nobody can tell who I am writing it without a court order. I am working for a company that is so poorly run, I am only glad that I am a consultant. In fact, I wouldn’t accept a position with them if they offered it, and than goodness my contract is over soon.
The area in which I work has been plagued by bad quality product, so I was hired to make it good. Every time I have suggested an improvement, the response has been “what is the benefit and what is the cost”. They don’t really want good quality. If you want good quality, you pay for it. Instead, I have to run a cost-benefit analysis on every idea. It’s a stupid way to run things when your quality is so low, it is actually the worst I have ever seen in my entire career, and I have been doing what I do for decades. I can’t believe they gave garbage like this to customers. I can’t believe customers didn’t throw it back at them and tell them “no thank you”.
Jon Stewart recently used his Daily Show pulpit to mock the Healthcare Exchanges because of the software issues they’ve been having. I’ve been working in the software field for decades. I figured there would be problems because the systems re complex and have to meet a lot of federal regulations and simultaneously integrate with diverse set of private insurance company web sites. I mostly like Stewart, but when he mocks things he doesn’t understand, he comes off as a twit. On that night, he was a big twit. It’s okay to mock stuff and I get that it’s comedy, but comedy doesn’t have to operate from ignorance. That makes it dumb comedy, and dumb comedy isn’t funny.
When I see someone wearing a Phiten necklace I laugh and laugh and then I hoist a glass to PT Barnum. There’s one born every minute, and when it is old enough, it wears a Phiten necklace.
Our cat is all guts and fight. A strange neighborhood cat was out on our deck this evening and our little girl, who was four-paw declawed by the people from whom she was rescued and can’t really defend herself, launched herself at the window, all hiss and puff and ferocity. She is such a little tough guy. One of the reasons I fell in love with her was that, even as a kitty, she was a tough guy. That hasn’t changed. All guts, and she loves us to pieces.
Hump that foam finger, girl!
Just saw a gif of Miley Cyrus’s performance at the VMA and I think it was a hoot and a half. She looks so stupid; it makes me laugh. She’s gyrating with her tongue sticking out. She looks like a complete moron, but I can’t say I condemn her for it at all. I saw that Nigel twit on So You Think You Can Dance tonight, that really bad show where everyone is constantly screaming and trying to desperately outdo last week’s excessive praise…where was I. Oh, yeah, that’s right. So that idiot Nigel couldn’t help but get all righteous about the absolutely meaningless performance Cyrus put on. What a prig. Meanwhile he sits there and watches two people hump each others brains out on stage every week on that show, and often with less clothes on than Cyrus was wearing. Oh, yeah, right, but these people are serious about it. They’re artistes. Blech. Cyrus was just whacked out and fun and anyone who took it seriously enough to be offended takes himself too seriously.
This show is so fake. Every week, when I am forced to hear it as my wife watches and I do something else, the judges tell us how this one or that one is “the best we ever had on this show” for this reason or that. This week they are all faking tears and pretending to be deeply moved by something or other. What a farce.
They also have the worst music every week.
“If you mean can they overdose and die from marijuana–the answer is no, its not very likely. But they can experience extreme anxiety (panic attacks) or psychotic reactions (where they lose touch with reality and may become paranoid).”
LOL. Seriously, they are still pushing this unbelievable horsecrap on government websites. “Extreme anxiety”. Never seen it and I spent a lot of time with the drug when I was young. And I mean a lot of time with reefers and fellow consumers of reefers. But the real killer is “psychotic reactions”. Never seen anything even close to this. Just absolute nonsense.
As for dying from a marijuana overdose being “not very likely”, once, in my senior year at college, a friend and I decided to see who could smoke the most reefers in one night. We had an ounce of pot and an eighth of hash. We smoked for hours, steadily, like every fifteen minutes setting up another bowl. He fell asleep first and I had another bowl and went to bed. And that was that. We smoked as heavily as I have ever smoked in my life and I slept like a baby, felt fantastic the next day, went to classes, went to karate practice that evening, had a normal evening bowl after dinner, finished my schoolwork, and went to bed as usual and slept like a baby.
Not very likely. What set me off is that I just heard Sanjay Gupta on a CNN commercial (during a show about Richard Nixon, inventor of the DEA and all around complete asshole who never suffered nearly as much for his crimes against humanity and his many murders as he deserved) say that he looked and could not find a single documented case of anyone dying from a marijuana overdose. This led me to google “marijuana overdose”, which led me to that idiotic NIH web site. Dear US federal government, please give it up already. That war is lost and has been for quite some time. It took less time to realize that the war in Viet Nam was a loser than it took to realize this horrific “War on Drugs” has been such a massive loser.
