The tragedy of finding happiness is the ease with which this world can turn it all to ash. May 21, 2017

      Ever tried to give 'famous' people that you've met a theme song?


         This  youtube link dedicated to Dr. Dr. Robert Julian Bentley, an arrogant, lying prick who is, like so many other political figures around these days, above the bloody law and who bloody well knows it to.








         It's unfortunate to live in such a beautiful state with such a corrupt infrastructure, I don't really want to move but I sure don't want to stay.

        The best way to win politics is through lies and people who are really good liars tend to not be all that caring about others (I know, shocking right?).  So to expect a politician to be truthful is liking expecting a door to open by itself.


        I mean, imagine an actual honest president candidate running.  What would his/her promises and plans be?  And how would he/she debate?


        Fix the corruption?  Good luck getting congresses support (they like money).


        Pass a law to help the country?  Good luck getting congress support without lobbyists getting involved.


        Fix the country for the long-term by sacrificing some short-term benefits? Prepare to be crucified with all the negative press headed your way.


        Actually do what he/she says he/she will do!?  That person would be far superior to any mortal and wouldn't bother taking on all of America's hate by being president (so a paradox would form, as such a being would be to worthy for such a position).


        Also, an honest politician will admit the flaws of his/her plans and things to work out.  Which would be torn apart by a lying one (who's plan will have no faults and be the just way of saving the country, if not the universe).


        ...and of course the lying one will use slander, manipulation and will load all the questions in his/her favor,


        People would rather hear a good lie then the truth.  For being told that you are unattractive hurts, but being reassured that you are not ugly makes you feel like he/she cares (no matter why he/she says it in the end).

           I'd settle for a governor that didn't think it was alright to appropriate a state helicopter to fetch his wallet from home after he ran off to his beach house following a fight with his wife...or who didn't act like a sex-crazed adolescent while in office. I don't even want to think about politics above my own state level right now, this post would get locked up faster than I could ever articulate my frustrations, at least Dr. Dr. can be summed up in song.

         So apparently I'm now compelled by law to provide information on my ancestry, income, language skills, property structure, commute, and my wife's bloody fertility among other invasive questions as per an overhaul of the U.S. Census.


          What the hell big brother, what legitimate use could you possibly have to need to know whether or not my wife can still have a kid, or the layout of my home?


         Guess I'm going to have to be a criminal now, seems it gets harder every day not to be one here, and I'm not answering these jackdaws or paying an extortion fee for refusing. Doubt they have the funds left to come after me physically anyway.

        I don't blame you... that seems excessive. Are some of these questions even legal to ask?? I can't help but feel like if they can't be asked at a job interview, the census shouldn't be asking them either.

        I thought they were. Used to be the idea of the government tracking where we drive our vehicles and the layout of our homes was relegated to discussions by crazy conspiracy theorists, now it's apparently the law for us to provide that information in detail if requested. I really don't believe my dead broke government has the funding to come after me though, so I'm going to ignore them and see what happens next, compelling stamp or no compelling stamp.

        No kidding... I mean, at least I can understand some of the driving-related, assuming it were used to upkeep the local road infrastructure. But figuring that out is often as simple as asking where you live, where you work and if you drive there. Not hugely identifying (they likely already know where you live and work) and they can take a guess at most likely route between.

         Never give your kid an assignment to research why people color and hide eggs for Easter. Go back past the middle ages and the myths that some people believe the church adapted it from start getting pretty dark.

           I'm more spiritual than religious so it's not that I'm worried about a loss of faith or anything, I knew the rabbit in a lot of old cultures represented rampant fertility and about the German traditions that jointly created the Easter bunny fables.. I just didn't realize exactly how dark the traditions that predated and likely inspired Ostara and Oschter Haws got and wasn't at all prepared for what my daughter dug up.

      Insomnia is irritating. Stayed up all night working on a boat with the party visible in it. Now I don't want to stop without figuring out how to make the vehicle graphics change when boarded/disembarked so the player doesn't approach a boat already full of the playable characters.

      What I learned today: Forgetting to pick up hamburger buns at the store is tantamount to ruining supper entirely. Substituting a toasted Italian loaf just isn't good enough to make an edible burger, my kids actually chose to go to bed hungry(for now).


      How much of a jackass would I be if we had leftover burgers for lunch tomorrow?

        I know your kids are just being rebellious (ROW ROW Fight dah powah), picky (Most expensive option or gtfo), and entitled (I want teh best cuz you give me everything already),  but Merican > anything Italian (Buns are the most Merican thing since Eagles becoming manly enough to gain the ability of becoming bald) and I, in my massive maturity, would also pout and whine like the biggest of babies till I was served something Merican (and I mean the high quality stuff. aka dat made in China merican stuff).


        After all, Merica > Not Merican (Science supports this for Science was invented in Merica, along with attractive people and real football [not dat fake stuff (you know [cuz I know])].


        off-topic:


        Also, I would totally keep serving the burgers till they eat them. :p  



        This post was made in China and is thus highly Merican.  My Moma even said so!

        @AwesomeCool I buy the cheapest, off brand hamburger buns I can find at the bakery outlet so it cannot be all that. I'm pretty sure they just don't want to eat it because it's different than what they normally eat and they are children. I find it's usually not until the piss-poor first years of living on your own that most people develop an appreciation for 'kitchen scavenging', after you've lived off of a sack of potatoes and some salt for a little while to make ends meet you become just about willing to eat anything.

      I've always been a political junkie, but it's funny that this year it's so hard to find reasons to participate in the whole process that it looks like the swaying factor for me will be just as selfish and shallow as anyone's could be. It's a good excuse to tune out of politics for a while though, I hate all news outlets during (presidential)election years.

        @Stapleton - Why do you see him that way (out of curiosity)?  I see a lot of people say this and am curious what makes people thing this way about him.



        Is it because he speaks his mind without worrying about others and things being taken out of context (and the naysayers love taking his stuff out of context or picking out is poorly worded opinions  :p ).

        That is part of it, yes.


        He is so very confident in himself that he feels free to speak his mind.


        I believe he will always speak his mind, therefore I know what he says we will get.


        The other candidates and presidents say one thing and in their minds believe something


         totally different, but only say what we want to hear because they are afraid.


        lol and yeah I agree the naysayers do love to take his stuff out of context.


        Also he isn't bought. This is big if you think about it.


        Every candidate besides Trump has people paying them. From bankers to corrupt activists.


        They do not pay the candidates because they like spending money, but rather because


         they have an agenda and want to push it on a candidate.

           That's a cool coincidence. It also actually came really close to being the name my wife picked for one of our twins' names but lost out to Gabriella in the end. It became the name of my game's protagonist instead when I decided I didn't really like the name I'd originally given her and had all these really great girl names still floating around in my head from figuring out what to name them.

      You got to love it when companies are arrogant enough to lie to you outright. Reading the box my daughter's computer came in, it says:


      1. Precision touchscreen(yet no touchscreen)


      2. 6 months of antivirus (it came with one)


      3. 12 hour batter life (okay, in it's defense all electronics lie about battery life, that doesn't make it okay though.) yet it only lasts 5 or so.


      4. Windows 8 (either came with 10, or 10 downloaded/installed upon first boot.)


       If I hadn't bought the thing for less than half its original price as an end of the year deal this would be beyond unacceptable, as it is, I'll definitely be avoiding the brand in the future regardless of the deals.

        is the box actually for a different computer, and happened to be the one they grabbed when they packed it? (assuming it might not have come in-box to them, or they might have had it out on display and had to rebox it on sale)

        Never had a box lie to me unless it's the back of a package of food. Agree with Shaz sounds like a different box or a floor model which does not really come with anything hence how cheap it is.

        @Shaz & @Hollow 1977 Other than the missing features it's the same computer featured and all the specs line up, though when I opened the first box there was a second box inside it before you got to the computer/styrofoam but it was either factory packed or someone did a really good job of making it appear that way (as a former Walmart employee myself, I kind of doubt that.)


           In all fairness though, upon further review I realized that the antivirus was a limited time deal for registering the computer through the company website, and being an end of the year blowout computer it had just expired before I bought it, and the windows thing is minor enough in the grand scheme of things so I guess the only valid complaint would be for the touchscreen (which might actually be a good thing, considering it's a child's first computer) but the specifications sticker on the laptop itself even touts that it has a touchscreen so...I don't know. Never had a box lie to me before either, but this one at least lied about that much.

         My wife came home today with a purse gun, odd how much people can change over time.


         Never thought I'd see the day she moved beyond admitting that not everyone who carried was necessarily a blood-thirsty criminal or a reckless idiot (a feat likely only accomplished because she didn't realize I carried until after we'd wed, and the result of months of heated debate afterwards nonetheless.) yet now she's talking about getting a CCP for herself as well.

      Such a tiny 9mm, my fingers fall well past the grip, fits her's perfectly though. My only concern is that the trigger pull is a bit tight, have to make time for an afternoon at the range to break it in and see if she can actually shoot straight with it.

      Got a really heartfelt-sounding scam texted to me perjuring the true story of a sweet old lady who won a huge lottery this year...you know, if scammers like this put half the effort they put into making their scams appear legitimate into something more honest they'd probably have a nice guilt-free income to spend without screwing anyone over in the process. I guess gluttony and greed go hand in hand though.

        Actually, it's a cost/benefit analysis.


        For the widespread spam scamming it's better to have enough errors to filter out people who are unlikely to bite in the end. From a time perspective it's more efficient. Sad, but true.


        Of course, there do exist well done targeted scam attempts. They are usually called spear phishing, if you are interested.

        @SharmNo, she's just a young, energetic lab with a chew fetish that brings the older, normally good dog into doing bad things with her. They get plenty of exercise, though I'm considering turning her into an outside dog until she grows a bit and mellows out. That or stop leaving things lying around and forgetting about them.
