Still Back, Suckers…

environment

Just ill. As in “sick”. That kind of ill.

I’m illin’ without no penicillin.

Okay, that was terrible. I should just stop and go to sleep again. Maybe take some Tylenol. Or the equivalent generic substitute.

While I’m recovering, here’s a picture of some cute puppies.

puppy pies!

You can just feel the emotional manipulation, can’t you?

I’m Back, Losers!

economics / education / environment / judiciary / politics / religion / security / technology

Sort of.

Maybe.

For a while.

We’ll see if I like it or not. My life has had some twists and turns lately, and maybe I need a release. Or a drink.

Yeah, probably a drink.

Or 11.

Not back, but not dead ferrets

environment

Nothing to see here, folks. I just can’t let that stupid ferret post be the last thing I ever wrote. Feel free to continue ignoring this blog (like you always have) as usual.

Except for you spammers, of course! I so love you guys! Never give up, never surrender!

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.

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.

You might as well stop the Internet now

I’m being completely serious about this.

After watching this video, is there anything left to see?

Seriously, it’ll stop the way you think about everything.

Anecdotal Muzak Story

environment / technology

Whilst working, early this morning, a local radio station played in the background. Normally a good mix of happy songs, there were some terrible, terrible songs in the rotation for this morning. Stupid, sappy, late–70s love songs. It was horrifying, and it didn’t enhance my effort at all.

As I ate lunch, yet another radio station played in the background. The first song that came on was John Denver’s ‘Thank God I’m a Country Boy,’ so I figured things were not going to get any better. I was wrong.

After I got my burger, I heard the characteristic open sounds of one of the greatest songs in the history of mankind: Shaft!

Yes, I love that song…maybe a little too much. But if loving Shaft is wrong, I don’t want to be right! Or live in the 21st century, for that matter.

Then some hippies (I swear, none of them older than 21, none of them wasting more than $5 on shaving gear in their lives) walked in. After the group sat down, the waitress asked them what they wanted to drink, left, and returned, she asked them if they “knew what they wanted?”

“…besides a haircut?” I added.

Then I spent the next three minutes trying to act like I was trying to get something out of my beard as to cover up my hysterical non–laughing.

Hippies? Shaft? The 70s?

It was funny to me, anyways.

Sidekick. Dirt. Rednecks.

education / environment

Over the course of many years, I’ve had the pleasure of posting many videos on this, and other blogs. But today, I find the rare pleasure of linking to one that must be viewed in it’s own environs, as there is nothing I could — or would — want to add to this great sociological experiment.

Involving rednecks.

And beer.

And a car.

And a ramp.

You can probably figure out what happens next.

“Guy jumps his Sidekick off some home made dirt ramp.”
