About Me

My photo
I'm an artist, an educator, Pastafarian and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I like unusual juxtaposition, but I love my wife...and beer. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while. Oh, and I mispell alot.

One Of My Very Own…

Is this really the best the richest country in the world can do? I don’t think so.

Loyal viewer, Reon, makes this suggestion about the huge philips head screws on the deck of that ship:
"Pure speculation on my part but I think those screw looking things are mounting cavities you can hook tie-down straps into in order to secure choppers to the deck. It's a supply ship and they only appear in the area demarcated for chopper landing. I could be completely wrong in which case it might be grooves the deprived seamen can rub their dicks in."
And that last sentence is why I like the guy so much.

But that is, more or less, what the government did with deadly pathogens. As I understand it, they sent LIVE instead of DEAD microbes to other labs.

If you nodded your head over the wisdom of that tidbit, you have no idea how blessed us white people are. Just our demonstrated preference in hiring and housing is enough, but within limits, black people have been fucked at every turn.
That is changing now...I think. All the young people I know just don't give a shit about your skin color, country of origin, sexual preference, etc. I hold out hope for the future in that one fact. 
But, of course, that doesn't mean I can't make fun of them just like I do everybody else.

My campus at the University of South Carolina did it right. After a major remodeling or the central campus they didn't lay down sidewalks until the foot paths were laid out for a semester. And it was perfect.

SOME NAUGHTY BITS

I know I have posted this before, but bare with me. (No pun intended.)

Remember all times I have criticized "science" for being very poor in communicating with the general public?
Exhibit A:
 NASA posted this on the internet and thought it was a good thing.
ON THE INTERNET!!

I saw the story about the US Marshalls showing up to collect $1500 of 30-year-old debt, armed to the teeth. If that man had his cell phone in his hand and moved wrong, he would be dead. DEAD. I don't even know what to say. If revolution comes, I figure I'll die early on. But I'd die fighting. This is not my country anymore.

The man on the piano is Carlos Núñez Cortés, from an Argentine comedy-musical group called Les Luthiers and they are great musicians and incredible funny as well.

Here you have a sample:

I truly love your blog, but you have fallen into the woe-is-me college loan trap. A little math shows she probably has a 6.5% interest loan. If she was truly paying faithfully, then she was paying a steady $113/ month on her loan. (Such a loan would yield her situation at 23 years, assuming she made regular and same value monthly payments.) Anyone with a brain knows if you pay that little, the principle goes up every month because she isn't even paying the interest. If she had paid $297/month, her debt would have been zero at 10 years. The problem is, for 23 (Twenty-three!!!) years she didn't want to make that payment. Imagine if you bought a new car with a $26,400 loan (not entirely unreasonable now a days) and only sent the bank $113 each month.... They'd repossess it in month 6.

The problem with student loans is that people saw them as "sorta free" and not like real debt. And the easy availability caused people to go to college who may have done otherwise, and got degrees worth no money, and fed the college accounts so they added unnecessary costs... Why should you and I pay for their stupidity?

I hope she didn't get a business degree or engineering/math degree!!!
