Ponying the post office

economics / education / environment / politics / security

This would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.

“U.P.S. and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the post office that’s always having problems.”

This, coming from the greatest orator of out time. He’s trying to show how private insurance companies are doing such a terrible job by showing how terrible every government industry does in comparison to government–run services.

You know what would be awesome? If FexEx got to deliver this package I’ve been waiting on for five days. Oh wait, they are. They just have to give it back to the USPS so that they can deliver it. FedEx makes a ton of money by delivering things for the US government because of how inefficient the government runs the post office.

We are so in for it with this thing.

I ruin worlds (and something about WordPress)

technology

If you can read this, then you have the ability to read. Thank a teacher or something.

And if you can read this and you are using a web browser, then thank the browser–maker people and the folks that make WordPress. Because that’s what you’re looking at. WordPress.

Unless I’ve changed it to something else, and you are reading this in the future. If you are in the future, what’s it like? We got flying cars yet? Seriously, I wants me a flying car, and I wants it right now.

Or…a robot servant. One that won’t backtalk.

Makes me sandwiches.

I want a sandwich.

Anyways, the site now runs on WordPress. Continue the rest of your lives as usual.

How to fix a computer

education / technology

Ice T shows you how to fix common problems with your Mac. Today’s lesson involves a slight display problem. Slight content warning for language.

Also, this may void your warranty.

Rethugican Protesters

politics / security

Here’s how to handle your critics, from the master of all things evil, George W. Bush:

Now, with the greatest president and administration in the history of mankind, we’re now told to report anything fishy. About a policy decision. Sad.

And weak.
Just as soon as people start getting a little snipy, the government of the United States has to start getting lying about the people with whom they disagree. I’ve never seen so much blatant misrepresentation about these ‘angry mobs’. If we keep going down this road, even satire will sound normal.

Less talk, more obeying

education / judiciary / politics / security

Wow. Just wow.

“But I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.”

Wow.

So, that bad idea I was going on about

technology

Just thought I’d let you know, it’s back on like Donkey Kong! Yep, I’m back to going back to going back to the drawing board. Again. This time for reals — I’m being totally cereal, you guys.

Plus, I’ll have a nifty GPL–ed WordPress theme that looks just like this site! So you too can steal my theme and fill it full of crap I’d never use. Like TrackBacks, or lots of ads, or pictures of cats, or…comments.

Point being, soon I’ll be transitioning this site back to WordPress (part 5).

Good times, good times.

Oxt Weekend

education / environment / technology

Not a bad idea, changing the next next weekend to “oxt weekend”.

Some examples:

You going somewhere this weekend? Or was it oxt weekend?

I’m working next weekend. And oxt weekend. I swear, I’m going to burn this whole place down some day.

How about oxt weekend? How about oxt weekend? You say that every week! Just admit you’d rather play WoW than go out with me. Admit it. Admit it!

And my social scene takes the examples down with them. Regardless, this is a nifty neologism that I can get behind.

Twitter Job Description by Date Joined

Somebody went and created a chart describing how connected you are to when you signed up for Twitter. I joined Twitter waaaaay back in early 2007, so I guess I’m more awesome than everybody else. Click the image to actually read the thing.

Proof positive that I’m a futurist. Or, at least, an innovator. Well, I’m something, the Internet told me so!
