Top 10 Things That Bug Me

...hey all...I've never actually used this blog to publish my thoughts or anything like that, but I now realize that sometimes I have things to say...or rant about...so I'm gonna start today with the top ten things that bug me (in no particular order)

10. People that aren't ashamed of being an American......I grew up and have lived my relatively short life (26 years) being proud of my country. But in the past 6 years or so, the shit has kept piling on and there is only so much someone can take before their patriotism escapes them. There was a time when I believed that the American government did more good than harm, and while it may be that this was simply caused by my naivety, I would like to think that it was the truth. These days I just get depressed when I think of what my country stands for and that by working and living here, I am supporting those very things that I abhor......anyways, lets move on

9. "Brevity"....Brevity is a single panel comic that runs in I'm sure various papers all over the country, and I have to say, it is definitely the most insipid comic creation ever...just not funny! I recently say a whole book devoted to this little waste of space at Borders and nearly shat myself...as far as I'm concerned there will never be a single panel comic strip better than The Far Side...and that is that

8. People who drive like they're that only people on the road...idiots raised by stupid parents, led to believe they live in some world that cares a damn about them...nuff said

7. People who don't appreciate those who try to help them...Here I am thinking particularly about teenagers...I work in a middle school and am constantly bugged by the little shits who hate you because you care...

6. Most Popular rock...I'm looking at you Good Charlotte and Fallout Boy

5. People who treat servers in restaurants like scum...get a clue people , your server is just like you, and by the way this person is doing you a service by swallowing their pride and being nice to a dick like you...and by the way, an acceptable tip these days is between 18% and 20%

4. Christmas...oh I know you all don't like me now, but hear me out. I have no problem with the religious aspect, although I am not religious, and I love getting together with family. But what I really hate is the Christmas Corporation...and I think now you can agree with me again...I could go on but...no

3. Supermarket ads in my mailbox...does anyone actually look at those things?

2. Gas Prices...

1. And finally...ignorance...in all forms, perpetrated by anyone, anywhere, at anytime

Giant Sunfish

Crazy Huge Sunfishes! I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium last weekend and saw these things up close and personal. They were so weird looking! I swear they look fake, like they were made out of styrofoam or something. I suggest making a trip to see these things if you live in California. Here's a pic, more can be found here

Plasma Zapper Zaps Waste and Produces Clean Energy

...The fact that we haven't been doing something like this before baffles me, it seems so easy...
From the article: Popular Science reports that companies like Startech are blasting trash with plasma and producing clean fuels like hydrogen as a byproduct. Basically, you put tons of trash in one end of a plasma converter, and a superheated plasma arc obliterates the trash into its molecular components. The process is called "plasma gasification". There are two byproducts: one is a "syngas" composed mostly of hydrogen and carbon monoxide, which can be converted into fuel. The other is molten glass that can be sold for use in household tiles or road asphalt. Amazingly, plasma converters produce enough energy to power themselves, and actually produce an excess of energy that can be sold to the grid.

You Know You are Living in 2007 When...

clipped from: mail.google.com
Living in 2007

You got to just love, because it is soooo true

YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2007 when...

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.


3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that

they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if

anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the

screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the

first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and

you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your

coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile.

: )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this

message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on

this list

AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself
