    • So...I Kinda Rule Mars Now

      11 years ago

      fmapreshwab

      It started out as a joke in my History class this morning. We were looking at a map of early America, who claimed which territory and that. My proffessor had this pretty shaded map in his powerpoint and everything. It had trading bases, soldier camps, all that. And there was this huge void in the west. Not where California is, mind, because they could get to that via the coast. No, more like Colorado and Utah. The French had it (without any posts, bases, or soldiers) then the Spanish had it in the same sense. It went back and forth between the two until America took charge and people actually started to live there. So I go up to my prof after class, and we're looking at the map.

      "So, it was theirs just because they said it was?"

      "Pretty much."

      "You know what? I own Mars. And what's more, I defy you or anybody else to say I don't."

      "Do you have a flag?" It's a joke he ripped from watching an Eddie Izzard dvd. Hernandez shows up to Central America and claims it for Spain. A native walks up and says 'Um...yeah, this is kinda our land. We've lived here for centuries and stuff, so...quit claiming it.' 'Do you have a flag?' Hernandez asks. 'Hang on.' Native turns to his budies. 'Hey, guys, do we have a flag?' Turns back. 'Nope, no flag.' 'I claim this land in the name of Spain.'

      And that was the end of it. Until I got to work and really started thinking about it. I started out picking pop music anthems and saying that leaders would be picked gthrough pitched combat with crappy Star Trek fight music on in the background. Then I started thinking about Hillary and Obama going through that, and I laughed my ass off. But it evolved a bit after that into a full blown thought experiment. Think about it. If you had a whole planetary government to set up, what would you do?

      Insanity is a fact of the human condition. The mistake people make is in thinking that if you're not swinging from lampposts at three in the afternoon (cause three in the morning is when all lampposts and public monuments are being reserved for the drunks, that's why) or screaming "Batman killed my baby" from the looney bin window, you must be fine. This is not the case. And I'll have you know, Batman has had his dark times. It's entirely possible he killed that man's baby (no, not really, but, come on, cut the guy some slack).

      On to lighter news. So, Christmas Eve (yes it was over a month ago, but my last post is from November and this is a funny story) my folks let me and my sister open one Christmas present each. I worked Christmas Eve. I drag my dirt-tired, bone-wearied ass in at 8:30, and my sister starts screaming about, "FINALLY, I've been waiting FOREVER." I'm ten seconds from a screw you and a hearty bitchslap when my dad tells her to sit down and enjoy the rest of whatever TV they were watching. I don't really care what it is, so long as I get to couch (yes, couch is a verb now). So, show ends or commercials or somethings, and my sister gets up and says "Now can we?" about seven times in ten seconds. She runs over to the tree and shakes everything with her name on it. She's already on her way back when I pick up the small box farthest from the tree, and thus closest to me. I walk back into the living room and she's having a frickin seizure on the wrapping paper. When the dust clears, she's holding a green set of plastic desk supplies. Scissors and the like. I start taking the paper off mine the civilized, "shut up, you should be glad I'm still capable of movement" way, tape first, then gently remove the paper and twist it out. "Ugh! Hurry up or I'll do it!" I don't even really know why she cared what I was getting. So she's sitting there nursing her office supplied spirit when, lo and behold (BEHOLD!) I open up myself a brand-spanking-new MP3 player. You should've seen her face.

      Science Fact: Happy New Year

    • Murder, mayhem, you know the drill

      Was the Viet Cong North or South Korea? I was watching TV and they mentioned the Viet Cong. Can anyone guess what show? (I'll give you a hint: It wasn't MASH.) That's right, American Dad. Roger was in Vietnam. Something about space war. But that really has nothing to do...with...something.

      So...Anybody heard of "Into the Wild"? My buddy Cheese called me last night and was all "I'm at the mall and I'm bored. Drop whatever you're doing and come see a movie that won't let out until tomorrow morning." I was watching CSI. So I was all like "What movie do you want to see?" "I dunno, let's just sneak into whatever's stating when you get here." "Isn't that wrong?" "Meh. They don't care." "Oh, well alright then." So I get there and they're locking the doors. I get in after two minutes of coercing the 'guard' and he says "We're seeing this because a friend wants to know if it's good enough for him to go see." Great. I love being a guinea pig. We get there twenty minutes late, but after we get into it, it's one of those movies where you don't actually know you're watching a movie. It isn't weighted down by, "Hey, didn't I see that guy in that movie about the hooker and the cowboy?" I don't know that there's an actual cowboy/hooker movie out there, but that's what people would have said. In any case, the movie kicks ass and everyone should go and watch it. It's like you're really watching a person's life, and it's so interesting. And based on a real life story-type man. Which is awesomely depressingly kickass.

      Science Fact: MASH was set in Korea, upwards of a decade before Vietnam happened. Yup.

      EDIT: I feel totally jacktarded. I thought I said that the movie was "Into the Wild," but it turns out I didn't. Stupid me.

    • A Quick Word

      So I almost died a couple of days ago. Yep. More on that later.

      I suck at doing things. I'm supposed to be researching my communications project, writing my English paper and studying for the Biology test I have tomorrow. But, unfortunately, all the crap I need is on the Internet, and when I get on the Internet, I always end up, well, goofing off as evidenced before you. I was researching like a mad bandit when I was all like "Hey, some music would be awesome right now." But all my CDs are out in my car, upward of ten feet from the couch, so I was all like, *snap of the fingers* "YouTube! They've got all the musics!" Unfortunately, they have all the videos. And videos involve watching of videos, which involves not doing of the homework. And now I'm doing this.

      So, back to the first thing. I was all eating dinner at work the other day. It was me, little annoying guy I've mentioned before, big guy who's kind of a jerk I've never mentioned before, and other big guy who's a total jerk but also the guy I hang out with the most becasue I'm kinda messed up. So we're talking, and evidently I can't talk while I eat. I start choking, which is never good. I can't, as in can not, breath. About a half minute in, they finally start to realize what's going on, and I'm getting closer and closer to blacking out. Little annoying guy, directly to my left, just sort of starts at me. Total jerk, directly to my right, is laughing his ass off. So the big guy, who's sitting all the way across the table from me gets up, runs around the table, and starts giving my the heimlich. Long story short, and sort of a shocker ending, I lived. Woohoo.

      I got a cell phone. YeY!

      Science Fact: The truth is out there. (My English teacher has never heard of the X-Files. I just found that out today, which makes me sad inside. I always hated the X-Files, but at least I know about it, right?)

      Okay, kiddies, I haven't said anything substantial in a very long time, so prepare to be barraged. School starts for me in a week. I have one week to hold on to my last shred of childihood. I start freaking college in just a week. I just tried to spell the word 'college' with an 'a' and a 'd'. Sure I've had a job for the last two and a half months, I drive myself around, I can wear grown up clothes and somehow manage to keep myself fed (not like anybody else is gonna do it), but I've always sort of seen myself as just some big kid. I sit around eating Cheez-its and watching TV all day. If that doesn't just scream child-like behavior, I don't know what does. But then that's the problem. Child-like. I feel kind of pathetic trying so desperately to keep being some litte kid.

      Moving on, I totally got a laptop yesterday. WOO! It's 'for school work', but screw that, right? Last night, or rather this morning, I was on the internet at two in the morning. I love that. The house computer is in my parent's room, so I don't get much of that. I still don't have a cell phone, but I feel like this is a big step.

      I mentioned slightly higher up that I have a job now. I think this may be the first time I've mentioned this, so I feel I should explain. I work in the kitchen in the hospital down the road a piece from my house. It takes a total of eight minutes to drive there, which I think is just the greatest thing. I have to wear scrubs to work (I make a big fuss about it to just about everybody, but I also think that's kinda cool). One of my managers is my old bestfriend's (old only because she moved like three years ago and I only hear from her sporadically now) grandmother, and the second she found out about that, she totally stopped hating me. One of the guys I work with is the fifteen year old punk who almost never shows up for work. When he does, he's late, and he has absolutely no idea how to do his job. If he owned up to any of that, I might not have a problem with him, but he comes off all smug and superior and blames everybody else for his issues. He once said that the job meant absolutely nothing to him, but he'd get pissed if he got fired. Most people working for $7 an hour do it because they need the money. I'm doing it because my folks are making me. He's some rich ass who's just looking for a way to get his first job over quick so he can say he has experience.

      He also totally snubs me for being a vegetarian. We were haveing dinner one night (I work the dinner shift, and we get a food break between serving the food and cleaning the kitchen) and he was whining that he hadn't gotten any meat. I told him he wasn't going to die from one meal without meat, and he told me I didn't know what I was talking about. "You need meat in every meal. It could kill you." I told him I hadn't had meat in over a year, and he looked me in the eye and basically called me a liar. "I highly doubt that. You'd be dead." I've had that conversation with a bunch of the guys at work, or something like it, but none of them ever called me a liar or glared at me the way he did. That could very well be the reason all the other things about him piss me off as much as they do, but everybody else hates him too, so maybe it's justified.

      My buddy Cheese just got a job at Subway, and I was all happy for him and stuff. I got the news while I was camping with some family up north. He's owed me twenty bucks for a while, and I don't really care, but it really pisses my mom off. She kinda hates him. I'm always out with him and a couple of times he was driving and it got to be one or two in the morning and he'd drop me off and he'd end up staying on our couch because he's afraid of falling asleep while driving. Anyway, we were camping, and I told my mom he'd gotten a job, and the next thing I know, my uncle, who's never even met the guy, is bad mouthing him. I kinda think my mom told everybody that she hates him, and of course, since I'm just the stupid kid, everybody took her side.

      I think this is the longest journal I've ever done.

      If you're blind you stay away from driver's seats and large jet aircraft. If you're a drunk, stay out of bars and Ireland. If you're some stupid punk kid who failed third grade english, you need to stay as far away from keyboards as humanly possible. Not even kidding, boys and girls, this crap has got to stop. It's driving me freaking nuts! Hw wold pepl liek it f weal wet arond teping lik tis? It's just retarded! But all those other things, the blind the drunk, the et cetera, they all have support groups. Why are there no retarded typists annonymous meetings? Or why not groups for people who want to destroy the idiots who type like that? I'm thinking, seriously considering going on an Internet rampage, killing all that I see. As far as how little sense that makes, I promise you, it is possible to kill through a broadband connection. Why do you think they're so freaking popular?


      Also, happy Friday 13. Best day of the freaking year.

      I was watching House last night, and one of the characters said something kinda profound that I've put into practice for the day. "Valentine's Day is for people who are already paired off. To everybody else, it's just Wednesday." So, happy Wednesday. Also, I'm going to introduce a motion to the Council of Mythical Holiday-Based Creatures, calling for a renaming of the holiday. I'm thinking national suicide day, or maybe something about a war. Also, people keep giving me candy. Someone explain to me how giving me sugar (ME, dammit) is a good idea? I actually squealled in my last class, I was so hopped. I think I might have to go amurderin'.

      but white people arnt the only race that descrimates. gehettos aret only for people that arnt white. jews, poor vets and familys of all races. and i did not even menchen ghettos. and cmt is not the white peosons channle its the old persons channle. With paris hilton, and every other star, white people need advanceing. race plays a part in most peoples life. take the nba, more black refs call fouls on more white players( and i thought there was no white plays in the nba). and vice versa. but white people anrt the primary group, science persons predicte that white people will be the minority in just 7-10 years. Sure white people had slaves but we let them go and whites had such a good country, slaves stayed. but their is no asia history mounth or italian history mounth or any other race history mouth. blacks are the only one with a mounths, not that i dont encourage it. im just saying that white people are being descrimnated against just because they are proud of them selfs.
