So, I've decided to shut this blarg down. Yep, this is my last post. I know you're all horribly disappointed.
Things have gotten very intense at work lately. I'm heading up a major project here, and its eating up all the spare time I have for my side projects. So, rather than let this blarg languish, I'm going to cap it off and say goodbye.
Personally, I blame my friends. RJ, BB, WJ, BH (!!!!), and a few others, who failed to post even after several beatings were dolled out. An empty blarg is a sad blarg . And my blarg was sadder than most.
But seriously, its been fun helping Pixy beta test his/her/its new blarg software. Thanks for the opportunity, and my best wishes to you in this and future ventures.
Thanks also to those other mee.nu'ers that came by every once in awhile to check things out or comment. Especially Old Grouch, whose blarg is looking very nice. I really need to get over there more often.
For you Ace veterans, you might see me sneaking in the Open Blog back door every once in awhile to completely kill the post flow with some lame thing or another.
I've learned a few things with this blarg . But probably the biggest thing (to me, at least) was that I truly don't like politics mixing in where it doesn't belong, specifically in a blarg that deals with programming. If I ever start another blarg , it's going to be programming only; no political bullshit. I'll save that for my personal life. Mixing my profession with politics left me with a bad taste. It truly doesn't belong. And its kind of asshole-ish to crowbar the two together. I just don't want to be one of those people who does it.
Thanks again to everyone, and good luck.
If we weren't supposed to eat animals, then why are they made of food?
NEWSFLASH! THE ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST IS COMING!
LIMA (AFP) - Villagers in southern Peru were struck by a mysterious illness after a meteorite made a fiery crash to Earth in their area, regional authorities said Monday.
More news of the revivification of the dead!
So Betray-Us has spoken and the Dems are pissing their pants. Being politicians, they have some sense of rational thought (how else can you convince someone its raining when you piss in their face?) and self-preservation. That's why they are pretty much leaving their hyperbole parked in the garage in favor of their much more economical and less flashy lowperbole.
Of course, on the crazy ass left, that shit don't fly. And the batshitters aren't staying under their rocks. The pole riders over at AmericaBlog are claiming that Petraeus has, get this, PERJURED himself. I am not shitting you, nor am I linking them. Their proof? A commentary by Michael Hirsh of Newsweek about the skinny he got on the downlow about a super cereal report about a pentagon group that PROVES HE IS LYING! TO CONGRESS! CAPSLOCK!
The article says that this inside group's recommendations
“differ substantially” from Petraeus’s recommendations... [the report] will “recommend a very rapid reduction in American forces: as much as two-thirds of the existing force very quickly, while keeping the remainder there.”
Well, holy fuck guys. He is totally screwed. They gots him. Caught red-handed, disagreeing with a pentagon group on the recommendations for future strategies in Iraq. Why, if it wasn't for those nosy kids at AmericaBlog, he'd have gotten away with it, too! Disagreeing.
I was in class. I don't remember exactly which one; it was one of the ones that you have to take not because the subject interests you or because you believe that it will help you in your future, but because its a prerequisite.
The instructor came in late; she wasn't organized like she normally was. She was clutching her books and some loose papers to her chest, bag sliding off her shoulder and car keys still grasped in her right hand.
"That plane crash in New York... It doesn't look good."
We had class as normal and there wasn't any more discussion about what was going on. I didn't think too much of it at the time. Planes go up, and sometimes when they come back down shit happens. But when I left class you could tell something serious was going on. People weren't milling around as usual. They all seemed like they had somewhere to go and had to get there quick.
It was my last class of the morning so I went back to my apartment. My radio had been stolen from my car, so I couldn't listen to what was going on while I drove.
When I entered the apartment my roommate, Carl, was watching the news. The towers were both smoking at this point. After a minute, when it had sunk in fully, I turned to Carl and said,
"We're at war."
Some people seem to have forgotten this.
Read this. Notice the bit about how our troops risk their lives to investigate bodies and recover them for respectful burial.
Does the C stand for Cunts?
Here's my favorite moment last night from the debate. Hope you liked it too! Text me, k?
Since when did the American Civil Liberties Union become the Iraqi/Afghanistani Civil Liberties Union?
I don't recall them ever being concerned with the abuses of Iraqi/Afghanistani liberties by the Taliban and Saddam. I don't remember them ever issuing press releases about the public flogging of women who let their burqas slip in public. Or about Saddam's use of plastic sredders for discipline. Mum was the word.
So, what's different now? Exactly what has changed that would all of a sudden get their juices flowing for the protection of these people they didn't give a flying fuck about before?
I got this tickle in the back of my head, but I just can't bring it forward...
Is this for real, or is it the vicodin?
