      Hmm. Maybe I should actually post a journal once in a while.

      Lets see... I've been working on the car a lot lately, I've replaced the gauge faces, and am working on an adapter for the Kappa speakers I have, and am working on a rear seat delete as well.

      For some weird reason I somehow ended up reading Burnie's journal and looking at his profile, and I bet it has to be really irritating to have comments that are nothing but
      "Plzzzz adds me as yer friendzors!"
      "How do I get your award?"
      "Why aren't you responding to my messaieges about what I think should be in the next episode?"
      etc etc.

      It's nothing but a mess of horrid spelling and syntax, all of which demands/asks for some sort of favor from burnie.

      Ugh. Being someone even halfway important in an online community just sounds like it would be draining.

      Man, I haven't posted in forever; I've been underground like that lurker in Starcraft II, just waiting to spiny someone....

      Anywho, I thought it would be important to note that May 4th, while also being the date that Spiderman 3 comes out, is also "No pants day"

      So, when you go see spiderman, you better not have any pants on, or you'll ruin the whole concept of random, pointless holidays!

      that is all.

      I had the most genius Idea ever!

      We need caffeinated milk.
      We can then avoid having to drink either coffee or nasty energy drinks in the morning to avoid getting the shakes, and still drink things that are good for us.

      We can also make crazy spiderwebs

      You could also spike some sort of healthy snack with nicotine, so when people get addicted to it, they won't feel as guilty eating it because its "Low carb".

      In other news, I am leaving for my spring break trip to fort Lauderdale this Saturday; m girlfriend and I are bringing along four friends who in all likelihood won't get along all that well.

      If I have internet, and If anything interesting/entertaining happens, i will keep you updated on the wacky spring break week.

      w00t!

      Three more weeks till spring break;
      Gone will be the snow and fog and misery and ol' man winter.
      I will instead be immersed in sand, and t-shirt weather, and no shirt weather, and I plan on just staying outside for the entire week!

      Oh, and I may scuba dive too..... I plan to stab a shark in the gills.

      that is all.

    • Death By Valentines Day

      12 years ago

      gambitq72

      Ah yes, one of the most dangerous days of the year, the time where domestic stabbings goes up by 30% and men everywhere desperately buy flowers at hardware stores. (We sold a dozen roses for $12)

      However, I think my current Valentine/Love is a keeper; why do you ask?

      Because instead of doing the whole "If you loved me, you'd know what to get me" thing, she gave me a short list of things I could afford.

      Yay!

      See, chocolates are bad, because if you do get them, many girls (in my personal experience as well as tales from other men) feel guilty eating them due to self image related issues, and they take out their anxiety on the person who gave them said evil.

      However, If you don't get chocolates, others will take it that you are not impressed by their figure, and therefor get even more upset.

      My Florist (and every other place on the earth that sells flowers regularly) Triples the price on flowers, Gas stations, my place of employment, and Universities go into the low quality wholesale flower business, and by this time, full blown panic usually grips the male nation as we collectively hope to survive this plague of love soaked booby traps alive

      Danger! Danger Will Robinson!....

      Valentines Day is coming!

    • I'm old and mean

      As many of you know, your name is most likely in some database somewhere that holds any information that is felt important in terms of advertising, from your age to occupation to previously bought items.

      Apparently, these people know more about me than I do about myself, as I keep on getting magazine subscription offers for my "Dental Office".

      I've gotten a total of 6 separate offers from six different magazines offering a large discount on their wares in return for leaving them on the waiting room table.

      "I'm apparently a dentist" says I, wondering when this happened.
      Perhaps one night when I was asleep, the tooth fairy came and endowed upon me the ability to scare children and understand people talking with their mouths clamped open.

      Hmmm.

      The latest magazine subscription I got (for popular science, a magazine I do like) had a senior discount on it, knocking the price for the magazine down to 8 dollars.

      So, in a nutshell, I must be some sort of elderly dental professional who is just dying to read TIME, PEOPLE, and Teeth Drillers Quarterly, but just haven't made the connection yet.

      This is almost as bad as the Social Security Number Mixup.
      (A tale for next time)

      I think I'm going to go out and look for a stout cane, these tooth rotted young whippersnappers are moving just too quickly these days.

      Got Indiana Jones Trilogy for Christmas, and I must say that it is awesome.
      The sorta sad part is that I could easily look like Jones if I got some more muscle on me, got a hat, and "Stubbled" my beard.

      I do have photoshop on my laptop, but I don't seem to have the will to actually do anything with it at the moment, sadly.

      Oh well.

      In other news, is it bad that I'm actually missing the school routine? I've got much more free time on my hands than I really know what to do with.

      Oh well

    • Christmas Story

      12 years ago

      gambitq72

      In honor of my awesome new Hp computer, which allows me to actually access the internet at a regular basis, I have decided to tell you a tale of Christmas good cheer and egg nog and lots and lots of tickle-me-elmos.

      "Standardization" By Dan Knuckles

      Based on a true story

      It was a snowy day, and I was sitting at a desk opposite the school counselor, staring at a page of paper that was being pushed towards me.

      "Is there anything you want to tell me about this paper?" she asks.

      "I thought it was well written." says I.

      The subject in question was an essay written by myself approximately 72 hours earlier, on the inane banal topic of

      "What would you do if you knew you had exactly 24 hours to live?"

      Naturally, any writer recognizes this as a very patronizing canned topic upon which to ponder and muse upon, so I, being the slightly subversive and singular individual I am, decided to forgo the boring "Be with my family" and "Die on a beach" shtick and wrote upon my desire to go on a crime spree, get every law enforcement officer in the state chasing me throughout the entire tri-state region, and once there were enough news helicopters circling o'er the scene,drive off a bridge three seconds before I was to die....

      with a full tank of gas and a trunk full of illegal fireworks to boot.

      While the creativity of my prose was duly noted in red ink on the margins my paper, the simple fact that I was sitting opposite a counselor who was obviously worried about my mental state demonstrated that my paper was taken far more seriously than it was meant to.

      "You wouldn't be planning on actually doing anything like this.... would you?" she asks with a timid look of trepidation crossing her face.

      "Do you know exactly when I'm going to die?" I ask her.

      "...No..." says she.

      "Then you have nothing to worry about."

      She thinks over my answer for a moment, then looking at the facetious look on my face, decides that maybe she has nothing to be distressed about.

      "Good. Well, I'm glad we got that all straightened out!" she says perkily, standing up and opening the door.

      I take my leave, striding out of the office and back into the bland world of high school education, pondering on whether it would have just been easier to have slept through class.

      p.s. I don't care if it has nothing to do with christmas; It does have snow in it. Thats as good as it gets right thurr.

    • Pharmacys, Super Laptop, and stem cells

      12 years ago

      gambitq72

      After a long sabbatical, once I am able to finally get my awesome new HP Laptop (of death and destruction, its soo good) I will finally be able to access the internet on a regular basis.

      My HP laptop will be awesome, although the hardware in it is so power hungry, I doubt the battery life on that thing will be any good; basically, this computer is really a portable desktop computer.

      In other news, several of my online friends who are pharmacy techs have about had it with their jobs, which doesn't suprise me.
      One thing that boggles my head though is why people are such dicks to the workers at the pharmacy anyhow.

      Think about it. These people handle your drugs, some of which can be extremely hazardous if not mixed/filled right.

      Sooo, why do people feel the need to harrass the techs and make their job harder?
      I would be really tempted if I worked as a tech to deliberately mess with prescriptions of people who pissed me off; which is why I drive a forklift, and don't work at a pharmacy.

      I just load people's cars roughly if they piss me off.

      RE: Stem Cells
      In my bio class we just finished learning about these today.
      Ethically speaking, this is about as gray as areas come, and it really ticks me off how people really simplify the issue. This whole issue also comes under the "Knuckles law of illogical stupidity" which states:

      If an opinion on a complicated issue can be printed onto a bumper sticker and read at 20 feet, it is invalid simply for being uninformed and stupid, most likely for oversimplifying things." -Dan Knuckles

      Examples of complicated issues/opinions: Stem cells, abortion, national policy, War in Iraq, Gun control, etc. (These issues have many sides which are hard to even understand sometimes, and usually have religious beliefs further muddying the waters. Opinions on these issues usually take a long time to adequately explain and back up)

      Examples of uncomplicated issues/opinions: Sports teams, Spinach, Video games, Flatulance, Family Guy, The "coolness" of something. (These are issues that easily settled by ultimatums, fighting, rock/paper/scissors, and whose opinons can be made in grandiose pronouncements)

      I don't think government policy and ethical issues should fit on a 1 1/2" x 4" sticker.
      However, the Colts are the best team ever in NFL history, and I'll kick anyone in the babymaker who says otherwise. Unbelievers! Heathen Patriots fans!

      So in regards to stem cell research, I still am suspending judgement on this issue until I have more information.

      But I am declaring Halo 3 as the coolest looking game in the universe. Ever.

      I think my extended family likes my girlfriend, which is good.

      I'm also thankful for the loan chase unknowingly floated for my new kick-ass HP computer I'm gonna get; seeing as how my Dell died!!!!

      I also need new shocks for the 'stang, I think they're worn out.
      My butt hurts from all that thanksgiving day driving.

      Pithy means terse. You know, being abole to write in a concise way without lots of blathering. Usually my journals are the opposite of pithy. So, I thought I'd make a joke about it.

      Yes, I am crushed about the lack of Gambit. I am also PISSED that they killed him off in Ultimate X-Men. And in the last issue Rogue uses the powers she got from Gambit's dying breath to make time with IceMan. That there is just WRONG.

      "When you are older & closer to perfect as I am, spelling & grammar aren't as important as the message."

      Touche. However, how can the message be properly understood if one feels the need to use trendy spelling that obscures what one wishes to communicate? As for my mispelling: Nobody's perfect, an insight you no doubt have already learned in your more seasoned status in this world.

      Seeing as how you are an adult and graduated from high school, please use proper grammar and spelling. If you will notice, this really separates out the sophisticated with something to say to those who usually make references to gentalia and the like.

      You left me this message. It's genitalia, not gentalia.

      When you are older & closer to perfect as I am, spelling & grammar aren't as important as the message.

      Both actually, But I primarily got the nickname for my ability to
      a) Pick locks (a fun little diversion for me)
      b) throw cards hard enough to cut into drywall
      So primarily Gambit off the X-men. Hope they put him in X-3
