what next then?

I totally get it about second hand smoke, i honestly do. That said, obesity and drinking are just as bad. In fact, you could say that obesity is worse...so what? next ban eating in public? or regulate just what we can/can't eat? How about booze? how many people die every day cause some schmuck can't hold his liquor and gets behind the wheel of a car? If they're going to do this, about about mandatory interlocks on every car...you must breathe clean or your engine doesn't start....seems like a win/win, yet DUI's never go down and those that do drink and drive just get slaps on the hand and do it over and over and over.

The health problems of the obese cost all of us on our insurance, yet cures to obesity are nothing more than a get rich quick scheme. If it's that much of a problem, shouldn't there be free and accessible help? No, can't do that, cause various companies are making too much money off them.

I don't smoke, and I never will. But, it seems to be one hell of a slippery slope into us - in a generation or two - being nothing more than mindless drones, living how some self-appointed group tells us to live, doing only what they think is appropriate for us to do.

An archos 5 internet tablet...buggy as hell. continually crashes, slow and ponderous to surf...about the only good thing about it is that it has a 250 gig HD and I have all my music and tv shows on it.

but I rarely use it just because it's too buggy.

To do many of the things its touted to do you have to continually buy 30 dollar plugins (or take your chances downloading hacks, some of which are just viruses in disguise)

shoulda saved the money as a down payment for an Ipad

Won't touch anything archos ever again because of it.

and I can't return it since I bought it online

This fic was prompted by discussion on Gateworld about what exactly would it take for Sam to go 'dark'. What would it take for her to, in the words of Replicarter, 'reach her full potential'. This is my guess.

It's not a happy fic. Please heed the warnings. No feel good fluff here.

You know, it's not just that whites need to be more sensitive to people of color....people of color need to stop using their race as a 'get out of responsibility free card'.

I think many people have worked with an individual who calls in all the time, shows up late, goes home early, breaks rules...and when confronted their response is 'i'll just call my civil rights lawyer'.

These people aren't being picked on because of their race, they're using it as a crutch to not meet expectations.

So while people not of color need to be a bit more open minded, those of color also need to stop looking for insult in every comment, stop looking to be offended, and stop using their race as a reason to not do the work they're expected to do.

Making racism go away is a two way street and demands work from both sides.

so i'm driving to work this morning, and I see something weird....but couldn't get a photo of it. what is that little rectangle there, on top of part of our statehouse???? yes, a portapotty, johnny on the job, etc.

I mean, i know heights scare the crap outta people but really? seriously?
It's flipping cold right now and when the workmen gotta go....they gotta use the outhouse sitting on the roof of hte statehouse.





skydiver119: (bull)
Rant ahead :)

To all you uber wealthy folks that are whinging about keeping your tax cuts...you know who you are, the ones with the quarter million dollar incomes +.....you're freeloaders. You're no 'better' than the lazy ass welfare folks that have more kids to have more money, that go through life with the 'county/state/country OWES me a living', that pay off a doctor to get a 'he's antisocial so he must be on disability' diagnosis so you can spend your day sitting on your ass while the rest of us work.

(and no, i'm not talking about the folks that want to work but can't find a job, or the ones that simply cannot get on their feet, i'm talking about the ones that consciously and deliberately work the system to not work)

You folks that balk at paying your fair share....you're worthless freeloaders....just with better addresses than our welfare free riders.

If all you super wealthy paid the taxes you were supposed to pay, we wouldn't have state agencies struggling to cut and make ends meet. And don't you play the sob story that you 'can't afford more taxes'....here's a novel idea, live within your means, instead of manipulating, rigging and cheating your way to overextending yourself, and then expect the rest of us to pay for your greed.

Cause trust me, if 70% of the country can live on 50K or less a year, you can sure as hell live on your 6, 7, 8 figure salary after taxes.

I've completed all the challenges forever ago. A few are kinda fun to still play, but some? pretty lame. 'how many super novas can you make in 3 minutes'....umm, a supernova is 6 or more in a row, takes you all of 3 minutes just to make one

or 'how many other trios can you make without detonating a green', well dude, when the game drops all the colors in the same ratio, it's almost like it's stacked against you.

I have found out that the Zen game tops out at level 100. As in you never reach 100. You complete 98, fill up the tube and 'complete' 99 and go right back to 98. So that's maxed out, but hey, with 32 million points in Zen, what else can you do?

I do have an issue with the 'speed bonus' that you get...when you get that the words splash across the screen. Well, they often make me lose track of where I am, so it's hard to get past the main speed bonus to get to the others. Pretty distracting.

But i'm still plugging away at it. I'm pretty sure that the ranks max out at 100, especially after now seeing that the Zen does. So just over 1/3 there :)
