March Madness

March 8th, 2008 Posted in People are Stupid

No, I’m not referring to basketball.  For me, March madness is called midterms. 

I have my thesis idea well under way now.  I pitched it to the Dean of my department, The lead for my division (game design),to my pre-production class, and finally my game design class.  So now, I have been busting my butt getting references, photos, working up concept drawings, doing the documentation to protect my copyrights and even beginning the design for the website as well as FINALLY getting back to having my own portfolio site up and running.

Suffice it to say that I have been busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest and that has given me very little time to even think about blogging.  Shame too because there has been so much stupid crap going on in the circus that we call an election cycle that I would have loved to make snarky comments about.  But, since I am late to the party on that I’ll just leave it alone this time.

I will comment on this though.  One of the workers at the slaughterhouse who is in jail for animal abuse is saying that he was just following orders

“That’s how I was taught. He taught me to do the work. I didn’t know it was a serious crime,” Sanchez told the San Bernardino Sun in an interview published Friday.

Well, let me just say this.  One, ignorance of the law is no excuse no matter where you are.  I am fairly certain that most reasonable individuals when told to use a forklift to push a cow back up would probably say “Gee, something doesn’t sound right about that.”  Especially when they are also told to “use care when federal inspectors were around.”  See, that’s what you call a clue – which this guy doesn’t seem to have.

Two, he says

“I think it’s unjust that I’m here. Where are the people in charge?” he told the newspaper.

I bet they will get theirs too, but this guy is here illegally in the first place so to me it’s not unjust at all that he is in jail.  He broke the law getting here and our punishment for breaking the law is jail.  That’s how it works – oh, but I am sure in was taught something different.

    Instinct, you’re just expecting too much. Getting a clue requires actual thinking.
