      In regards to my Religion rant, I'm temporarily delaying it until I get my thoughts completely together on it. However, I did get ahold of the person who has my dive photographs, and hopefully post some more on shortly.

      As far as Hallowgivemas goes, I am not enjoying the Holiday rush at work; people giving me crap over 37 cents is really starting to bug me. This whole penny pinching thing makes me really wonder why anyone buys anything of value here; its probably why Indiana will be taken over by Wal-Mart, McDonalds, Meijer and Aldi's, cause its cheap.

      Support your local small stores!!!!

    • Warning: Rants, Deranged Behavior Ahead

      Just FYI to the few that actually read my journal, a long religion rant is slowly brewing, and it's going to be a long and possibly sarcastic one. (depending on the mood i'm in at the time), probably by saturday

      In other news, have any of you seen those talking deer in certain stores like wal-mart?

      buck_cent_200_80417.gif

      I HATE them!!!! One of the few things in life I absolutely abhor are annoying animitronic gag gifts. I hated the whole Billy Bass thing, I hate any cute little stuff animals that talk or sing songs, I hate dancing santa clauses and those idiot miniature houses you can buy that constantly play music.

      Well, guess who finally got their hands on one at work today? smiley1.gif
      Bwa haha!

      But Ladies and Gentlemen, it gets much much worse!

      Note the pleased expression on my face

      11-09-05_2220.jpg

      Yes I know I'm deranged, but listening to that little $%@# singing rawhide 10 hours a day 4 days a week would push any sane soul over the edge. Plus to clarify, the only animals I would ever abuse are the annoying singing variety, so dont go all PETA on me. I think my manager thinks I'm a mental case now too, so all in all, it was a good day.

    • The Pancake Incident

      Well Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a wonderful story to share. Instead of my normal rant about whatever is "Grinding my Gears", I have a new "Life Experience" to pass on to all of you.

      Earlier this morning after getting out of my math class, I decided to get some pancakes to eat before I went to work.
      11-07-05_2240.jpg

      So I stuck them In the microwave, and set it yo what I thought was 1:20, as instructed on the box.

      11-07-05_1152.jpg

      I then went downstairs to do some laundry, and came back up about 5 minutes later to see this:

      (Artistic Representation below)

      A horrible yellow smoking was pouring out of the microwave!
      I opened the door and a roiling cloud of yellow stench slammed into me, and I grabbed the plate and threw it into the sink. Smoke billowed from inbetween each pancake.

      I grabbed the faucet handle and drowned the evil pancakes; it took 40 seconds for the smoke to stop issuing between each layer.

      The aftermath:

      and

      11-07-05_1151.jpg

      Plus, my house smells like burnt crap too.

      Moral of the story: Don't be an idiot who can't even cook microwaveable pancakes and make sure to double check the time before you walk away from the microwave oven.

    • Retail

      This is an open letter to all your rude inconsiderate fools out there: people who are in the service industry are NOT below you, and need to be treated with the same amount of respect any human being deserves. This includes waiters and waitresses, cashiers, service desk personnel, contractors, handy men and women, etc. For example, if you are in the checkout line, talking on your cell phone while being check out is RUDE. You would be upset if the cashier talked to a friend next to him or her while he or she was ringing you out, so why not extend the same courtesy? Secondly, the people helping you at stores and restaurants are not ones who appreciate being yelled at. They have a life and feelings to; they are not a faceless entity trying to screw you over. Most likely, if you treat them nice, they will do their best to help you out. Personally at my place of employment I will bend the rules or make the calls to help guests out who are pleasant people; the people who hassle me are treated strictly by policy and procedure. Once people realize that and act accordingly, the people you deal with will be happier and will serve you better, and you will be happier as a result. While customers are entitled to good service, employees are entitled to courtesy as is everyone else.

      For all you that work retail, the food industry and the service industry, don’t let jerks ruin your day. They’re overstressed people, a product of our modern environment. Besides, you probably don’t get paid enough to truly care about their problem anyways. However, I will care about your problem if I like you; remember that, America.

    • Happy Halloween

      Happy Halloween to all ya'll. Instead of going trick or treating, or passing out celery sticks to the little kiddies and lecturing about tooth brushing, I spent my spooky day at class, work then class again till round 10:00 at night. funness! Also here's my pondering for today:

      Warning: this is a rather long rant, but feel free to respond to it.

      Recent comments by Dr. Singer about the feasibility of euthanasia of the severely disabled including the elderly and infants with birth defects have quickly stirred up both debate and outrage over the idea of evaluating the care of the infirm as cost effective or not to society as a whole. While looking at the disabled in our society in a purely Darwinist perspective may affirm Dr. Singer’s views, in a social standpoint this idea is a dangerous worldview shift. One of the fundamentals of a civilized society is the concept that all life is worth the cost of keeping alive and as happy as possible. Take away the right to life from members of society deemed unnecessary and invariably the amount of people deemed unnecessary will increase, whether from a changing idea as to who is useful to society and therefore must be kept, to more advanced techniques for screening out the potential for handicaps and undesirable traits. Would it be morally wrong if medical insurance companies required prenatal screening of all fetuses and denied insurance to those who were found to have or were likely to have handicaps or genetic defects? Should those unable to contribute to the workforce or culture be marginalized or expunged from society? While the removal of the weaker members from the human race may make sense to the Darwinist worldview, even in an evolutionary standpoint in regards to human behavior and interactions this would be a dangerous step backwards and this fact must be recognized and dealt with in a non politicized way.

    • Bombed!

      Damn. I bombed that speech pretty badly. However, I did get to visit a very close friend at ball state, which more than made up for the bad speech. Next time, I'll prepare much more. I think however I'm going to keep working on that whole gas principles concept and make a part of it on my website I never ever update; assuming I can even remember the code to get in.

    • Cable Ties, Physics, and Procrastination

      Its 8:29 and I don't feel like working at all. I have a presentation due tomorrow on the practical applications of gas laws in Scuba Diving, but I haven't really worked on it besides research and don't feel the need to either. Instead I've been watching Family Guy and working on the rings for my crazy chain mail suit of armor I decided to make for some odd reason; using Cable ties- 14 per link to be exact- and making them into the standard 4 to 1 European weave. It's pretty cool looking so far, like some sort of futuristic armor of some sorts. I've gone through one 1000 count bad plus another 100 I found laying around my room. I'm not sure I can consider this current project art, but I'm tempted to put it in the next show at the Harrison Center If I can. We'll see. (Assuming I finish It)

    • The Internet

      13 years ago

      Due to an influx of insensitive and inappropriate comments I have seen on this site and others, I have begun to wonder lately if blogs, forums, and chat rooms really are as useful as we think they are. The internet is the ultimate universe for anonymous interaction, which makes it into a rather nasty place, where every girl is hot, blond, and curvy, and every guy is tall, dark, handsome, ripped, and either plays drums, paintball, snowboarding, or some cool extreme sport. It takes a lot of work and time to observe someone long enough online to find out it they’re really who they say they are. Due to my lack of journal entries and photographs, how can you, the reader, really know if I’m a 20 year old college student who really does play drums, scuba dive, and have a goatee? (Another irony is that even though I’m typing this out, in all probability no one will ever read this unless I start involving myself in the site more) I guess what I’m getting at is that until you know someone good enough to really feel their genuine; reading journals and the like to get a feel for their personality, It doesn’t pay to get worried about what some kid says online. (usually they are just 14 year old socially inept males, trying to feel important by pissing people off) Don’t sweat the small stuff, and you won’t need botox and a chiropractor later on in life. smiley0.gif

      That’s the end of my weekly rant, triggered by the mistreatment of someone who didn’t deserve it,
      which really pisses me off-- you rock Kate!

      Back from my second ever dive trip, and it was really f-ing kold. However, in exchange for my pound of warm flesh I was able to procure an Advanced Open Water and Enriched air Nitrox certification. Woo hoo! Pictures of the trip may follow.
