Way out there in left field

October 27th, 2007 | No Comments | Posted in California, Libtards, People are Stupid

OK, I know I’ve been out of it for a while and not keeping up with the news, but this is just so freaking bizarre that I had to read it twice. Some liberals think that the reason for the San Diego fires are a) Global Warming b) Blackwater set them to drive people out of where they want a new building and c) The Bush administrations set them to divert attention.

“One reason why we have the fires in California is global warming,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters Tuesday, stressing the need to pass the Democrats’ comprehensive energy package.

Moments later, when asked by a reporter if he really believed global warming caused the fires, he appeared to back away from his comments, saying there are many factors that contributed to the disaster.

Yea, Harry, let’s not let any facts get in the way of a good sound bite.

Someone please tell me how ANYONE can take these people seriously and actually hear the words coming out of the mouth of someone like Harry Reid and say “Gee, he makes a lot of sense”

How bout this for “other factors” Harry – California is in a drought, it has been in and out of a drought state since 1977 and it is not a green state to begin with, it’s mostly desert and savannah so it is DRY out here. Dry things burn; dry things in a drought burn better.

Now let me guess “Well, it’s because of global warming that we have a drought.” No, it’s because too many people live in an area that doesn’t have enough water that you have a drought and all of you want grass (which needs water) and trees, and golf courses, etc.

I could go on and address the other two about how it’s all Bush and Blackwater, but the people who believe that will never have their minds changed by something resembling facts so why bother.

Stupid classes

October 27th, 2007 | No Comments | Posted in School

What kind of class has a mid-term that is only 15 questions long and they are all multiple choice?? I am taking a History of Visual Effects class and our mid term was just that, 15 questions, multiple choice and about the easiest things you can think of such as “Ray Harryhausen got his start working with Willis O’Brien on which movie?”

1 – Clash of the Titans

2 – Mighty Joe Young

3 – Jason and the Argonauts

4 – Earth vs. the Flying Saucers

The correct answer is (2) but for someone in the field, that is the most obvious question in the world, it would be like saying “What color is the sky” 1-green 2 – purple 3 – yellow 4 – blue.

If, for some reason you got the answer on that one wrong, you need to get out more.

Now, some of you are probably saying “What are you gripping about? It’s an easy A so take it and run”. But I have to pay a TON of money for this class, plus travel in every Monday for it by bus which for round trip is seven dollars, and it means I have to get up at 5:45 am so I can get to class on time. The least they could do is actually TEACH me something in the class I am required to take. I just hate wasting my time.

Everyone I know in the class with me got an A on the test. Everyone. I stood up there waiting to get mine back and saw as the instructor handed them out. All of them had an A.

I hate wasting my time, I hate wasting money. I especially hate wasting both on the same thing.

Holy Crapola!!

I just noticed how neglectful I have been to my blog, but I noticed people have still been checking in to see if I am still alive so allow me to put your fears to rest, I was not abducted by San Francisco nut jobs and put into a forced re-education camp. Instead, I have been doing school work (which isn’t so bad) and I got myself a part time job at an office supply place for extra cash but I am already thinking about finding something else because of some of the stupid policies they have.

First, we are supposed to sell insurance to go with every purchase of an electronics item, we have a QUOTA for it. I’m sorry, I never wanted to work insurance and I sure as hell don’t want to have a quota to meet for selling it. I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if they had told me that up front in the interview but instead I find out about it after I was hired and already working. The thing is that if you aren’t selling enough insurance I was told that “Your hours might have to be adjusted” meaning that if you don’t pimp the policy, we won’t have you working as much.

So I guess I could go with this approach “You know, you may want to have some insurance for that printer. Bad things can happen to a nice printer like that if you don’t have some sort of – protection, ya know what I mean.” and then give them that significant look. Then, if they still resist, they would wake up with an empty red ink print cartridge on the pillow next to them.

Yea, that would work.

So I think I am going to go down to the local coffee shop and put in an application there, I love coffee anyway, and I don’t remember them really trying to pimp a muffin on me or anything, so I think that will work.

“Pssst…. Buddy, wanna buy a muffin? Ya know, bad things can happen if you don’t get enough fiber in your diet.”
