So here we are, New Year's eve, on the brink of yet another new year, and even another decade. This fucked up year of our Lord 2009, is almost over.

Tomorrow will be a whole new year. But just like always, you throw a drop cloth over the toilet to paint the bathroom, and after you're all done painting you uncover the toilet only to find that it still needs to be cleaned.
Shit doesn't just go away with the New Year celebration, no matter how much whoopin' and hollerin' and drinkin' and noisemakers and funny glasses and pointy hats and fireworks and kisses and aulde lang syne goes on the night before. Nothing changes on its own. It's another day. After the hangover fog clears, what was there yesterday is still there on January 1st.

Sure, there is renewed outlook and that deep breath of optimism, along with half the country hung over and a higher percentage of the population in jail.
The resolutions, the diets, the nicotine withdrawals, the new gym memberships, the first baby of 2010 born at 12:02 Eastern Standard Time, the new date on the checks; that can all start once again. The world can keep on a-turnin'.

So Happy New Year, best wishes, all that shit.

Yes, Sears has good tools, as does Woodworker's Emporium even though their prices are a bit more. Good quality professional stuff there though.

Speaking Of Commercialization

This is interesting. One headline says:
"Shoppers spend a little more during holiday season"
Cool. Everyone seems to think they have more money to spend this year than last. Even with unemployment at record levels.

But evidently, they stayed away from the high-dollar stores:
"Shoppers find malls less crowded than expected"
And they were happy to spend it on themselves rather than give it to charities:
"A lean Christmas for the Salvation Army"


Thank You

Just a quick note to thank everyone involved in the wonderful Christmas day celebration for me and my family.

First, let me thank the pagans and Hallmark for starting and perpetuating the Christmas season, with all of its wonder and cash.

Next I will thank all the retailers with all your sales and specials. Without you, people wouldn't spend all that money running up extra bills and credit payments.

Then there's the Al Queda. Thanks to them, our friends and family can now fly safer on our airlines what with the extra security measures in place at the airports now.

And finally, I - along with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and NV Energy, would like to thank the dumb fuck (I'm going to go out on a limb here and suspect alcohol was involved) who took out the transformer going around the curve too fast in his car, which took out the power to our building causing several hours down time to our operations, along with several thousand dollars worth of equipment damage. This all caused several hours of down time to the locations we serve and the patrons they accommodate, not to mention the several hours my co-workers and I spent Christmas day and Christmas night restoring service to said locations and customers, causing us to miss out on this time with our friends and families.

Merry fucking Christmas.

If it isn't the #1 most overrated fucking 'instrument' in the world, it is a close second.

Let me be perfectly clear on this: If I never hear another gawd-damn ear splitting, tinfoil chewing, fingernails-on-the-blackboard harmonica solo, it will be too soon.
And if you choose to play one near me, it is quite possible that the next time you hear it, it will be because you farted.

Because I thinks it's funny:


Wind Does Have An Up Side

I hate the fucking wind. Really. I do. But this time, I'm somewhat glad for it:
At least 10 units in apartment complex engulfed in flames

Officials said the fire, located in the 1100 block of Dumont Boulevard, began around 6:15 a.m. and continues to burn steadily as of 7:45 a.m. Clark County firefighters are battling the blaze with help from Las Vegas Fire Department firefighters and Las Vegas police.

The fire has jumped from rooftop to rooftop, aided by heavy winds. Firefighters have positioned themselves on roofs and created a perimeter around the flames, hoping to contain the fire to the minimum number of units possible.
Call me cold, call me heartless, whatever. Blah blah blah, families getting misplaced during the Christmas season and all that, but not in this case.
I've had a house burn down before and it ain't no treat. I was six or seven years old, and it was a January day. We were able to get a lot of important to use stuff out, but the house was a loss.
We were displaced, but luckily we had relatives to put us up until we were able to get into another place.
So there is the smallest twinge of compassion I feel for any decent families who may live in these apartments.

However, this apartment complex is in one of the most fucked up, drug-filled shitholes in the city. In fact, the fire probably started in a meth lab. So no. I don't feel sorry for the rest of them at all.

Tools Explained

For Mark:
DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.

WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts, then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh SHIT!'

ELECTRIC HAND DRILL: Normally used for spinning pop rivets in their holes until you die of old age. They can also be used to add to the bruise collection on your shin when they bind in the hole and the handle starts rotating instead of the bit.

SKILL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.

PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.

BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.

HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle. It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.

VISE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off or break bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.

OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for lighting various flammable objects in your shop on fire. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race.

TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles, for testing wall or bone integrity.

HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.

BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good wood or aluminum stock into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge.

TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.

PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.

STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws, and poking holes in your palms.

PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.

HOSE CUTTER: A tool used to make hoses too short.

HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit.

UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.

DAMN-IT TOOL: Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'DAMN-IT' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.

ROUTER: Intended for shaping edges of wood, often makes random cuts and grooves in the more expensive wood stock, and toothpicks from the less costly stock.

"Healthcare jobs pay well"
Sure. If you're a nurse who works two of them.

Seriously. haven't you heard? There's a nursing shortage.

Here's how it works; a nurse will work three days in a row, 12-hour shifts at one hospital. They'll then work three days, 12-hour shifts, at another hospital. Some if not most hospitals throw in the remaining 4 hours making it a total of 40 hours in order to make it a full-time position.

So they work six days a week, one day off, getting paid for two jobs. Of course, they're too damn tired after all that to take good care of patients, so the patients usually get most of their visits by nurses' assistants rather than nurses.

Own A Piece Of A Beer Company!


Born out of the principle of crowdsourcing, two advertising agencies have come together for a first...to buy Pabst Brewing Co., brewers of over 25 well known beer brands. The asking price is $300 Million, not a small number, but through crowdsourcing pledges of as little as $5.00, the cost of a bottle of beer, this can be achieved based on the largest crowdsourced audience assembled, ever.

Who wouldn't want to own their own piece of a famous brewing company!

Only $265,103,935 more dollars needed for an offer!

The downside of course, is that it's Pabst.


Princess Of Whoop-ass

'Princess of Magic' arrested in domestic violence case

A 21-year-old woman who had a magic show at the Riviera this year was arrested for assaulting her 67-year-old boyfriend last week.
Wait a minute. She's 21 and he's 67? Good gawd. Is that the best this young hottie can do?
Rachel Jessee, who starred in “Scarlett and her Seductive Ladies of Magic,” was arrested today by Henderson police on one count of misdemeanor domestic battery.
And she beat the fuck out of him?
Her arrest report states that she and her live-in boyfriend, John Lewis, had an argument at their Henderson home. Lewis told police she grabbed him by the ear and struck him with a fist in his right eye. Police said that Lewis was bleeding from behind his ears and had a scratch to the back of his neck. He also had swelling under his right eye, a bite mark to his left tricep and scratches to his chest. He refused medical assistance.
BWAAAHHH!!! Why, yes. Yes she did.

“I taught her a few things, and she just caught on so fast, I thought, ‘Why am I doing this?’ ” he said earlier this year. “We should really be pushing someone who has ongoing talent and has the youth to do it.”
I guess you did there, sport. Taught her how to kick your ass.

So Yes, Alcohol Was Involved

Aye, those crazy Scottish. We need awards for these fuckers. How about we start with "Babysitter of the year":
Drunk woman who spilled toddler into traffic dodges jail

A woman who fell into a busy road with a toddler and her alcohol-laden buggy was so drunk she told police she could not remember she even had a child with her.
Next we have the "Guiness Golden Gloves:"
Drunk man challenged lamppost to fight

A 22-year-old man challenged a lamppost to fight after he was ignored by passers-by in the street, a court heard on Wednesday.
Then we have "Mr. Personality":
Man jailed for attacking wife with corkscrew

A man who ripped out part of his estranged wife's cheek with a corkscrew and left her permanently scarred has been sentenced to six years behind bars.
Well, it didn't say he was drinking, but he most likely was. And even if he wasn't, he was using a tool used for opening booze. So yes, alcohol was still involved.

Now we have "Photographer Of The Year":
Secret shower video man given probation

An engineer who secretly filmed his partner and her daughter in the shower has been sentenced to three years probation.

Michael Devlin, who also took nude pictures of the women while they were asleep, was also ordered to do 300 hours community service.

The 41-year-old filmed his 45-year-old partner and her 24-year-old daughter while they were showering and gave the women sleeping pills so that he could take pictures of them while they were asleep.
Okay, it wasn't booze, it was pills. Whatever. Worthless without pictures.

"Driver Of The Year":
Car overturns after driver takes ill

A man had a lucky escape when his car overturned on a busy road in Glasgow.

The 33-year-old was driving along Dumbarton Road, near Clydebank, when it is believed he took ill and crashed the vehicle about 14.40pm on Thursday.
Ill. Right. Stick with your story there, sport.

"Teacher Of The Year":
Teacher given chance to wipe assaults from record

A former teacher dragged through the courts after classroom confrontations with abusive pupils has been given a chance to wipe the assaults from his record.
No booze involved. It's just that the headline cracked me the hell up.
Wipe his assaults. Now that's funny.

Anyway, he had candy-assed students disrupting class and he shoved them a bit. Big fucking deal. They deserved it.

Dear Penthouse

Dear Penthouse,

I know this letter will sound hard to believe, and like they all say "I never thought this would happen to me", but IT DID! So here goes.

See, I play golf. A lot. I'm very seldom at home and so I don't usually spend a lot of time in one place, which really can make it hard to meet women or date.
Well, on one of my trips, I met this woman. You're not going to believe it - I hardly did myself - but there she was: A SWEDISH SUPERMODEL! Can you believe it? I'm thinking HOLY SHIT!!! This is too good to be true!

Next thing you know, we're getting busy ... shit. Wait a minute. I got a text coming in ...

Sorry, that was Cori. Bitch is trying to make a buck off me. Shit ain't happenin', you know?

Okay then, where were we? Oh yeah, so there we were getting down, and ... FUCK! Another text. Hold on a sec ...
Shit Jaimee, I told you not to text me to this number any more!
Woops! That wasn't supposed to go in this letter, here. Let me resend it...
Okay. All set. So anyway, there we were in the hotel room. I was down to my shorts and she was in her bikini - bottom half anyway (lol!). Her eyes were dazzling, and her lips lightly tinted with a very suggestive red lipstick - all pouty and soft looking - just knew where they wanted to go. I couldn't help but stare at the nicest shaped, firmest and perkiest tits I had ever seen. As she licked those pouty, sweet looking lips she started slowly lowering her bikini bottoms. Of course I felt something in my pants twitch, and the next thing I knew, I had my dick ...

SHIT! Jaimee again. I told her to take my fucking number off! brb LOL!!! ...
Fuck, my wife called her. And she is hot enough to fuck.

Back to the story. So there we were. I was standing there with my dick bucking and throbbing like a locomotive, and next thing I knew those red, sensuous lips were ... What? You don't believe me do you! You think I'm making this shit up - boning a hot Swedish model with other bitches texting me! Well you can kiss my black/thai ass. Heh heh, get it? Black/thai? LOL!!! ...

FUCK! WHAT NOW!!! Shit. It's Rachel . Daaa-hammmm. That woman knows how to polish a knob. She fucking ... heh-heh, that's another letter. LOL!

Well, I'd finish this letter but fucking hell. I got paparazzi on my ass, women sending me texts, and my short game needs some work. Shit. I'll send the rest later.

Good For her

911 Call Released From Home Invasion Shooting
It happened in Cushing, about 50 miles west of Tulsa in Lincoln County. Police say the female homeowner was awakened by her barking dog and called 911. While she was on the phone with dispatchers, police say she warned the intruder that she had a rifle.

Authorities say the intruder, identified as Billy Dean Riley, ignored the woman's warning and threw a chair through the window. That's when the woman opened fire.

911 - "Okay , (unintelligible) is advising that you can defend your property if you need to."

RESIDENT - "Alright he's at the garage."

911 - "He's at the garage? Is it attached to your house?"

RESIDENT - "Nope, he's at the patio door again."

911 - "I can hear him banging again."

RESIDENT - "I don't want to have to kill this man, but i'll kill him graveyard dead ma'am."

911 - "I understand."

RESIDENT - "Alright."

RESIDENT - Oh crap he's breaking in. he's breaking in now, he's breaking in now. He's breaking the window, i'm going to kill him. He's walking back and forth on the porch. He looks to be an older man, I don't want to kill him. He's kicking the door please hurry. He's going to make it in please hurry ma'am. I think he's drunk . He doesn't know where his pickup's at. God I don't want to kill this man."

RESIDENT - "I cant keep this gun and keep on the phone darling, it's a big shotgun, it will break my arm. As soon as you tell me they're here im taking the safety, uh.. I'm putting the safety back on this sucker."

Click - boom.

Too bad this asshole made it so this woman has to live the rest of her life knowing she killed someone. But at the same time, this asshole deserved what he got.
Good thing this wasn't somewhere like say, Chicago or D.C. The woman probably would be dead instead.

Of Electronics And Ferriners

I really enjoy music and like to listen to CDs, MP3s, the radio, even music DVDs a lot. I mean a lot. Very seldom do I not have tunes playing on some box. Be it XM while at work, in the car or in the workshop, or commercial radio when I'm getting ready for work in the morning or laying in bed reading a book at night.

The trouble is, it's near impossible to find a radio that fucking works.

I have an old alarm radio made by I-forget-who, but it is one of those old 70's or 80's style wood-grain looking things I'll dub "Ole Woody". Very similar to this one, but not quite:

It's one of those models that came out just after the widespread popularity of LEDs, much to the chagrin of people who manufactured those little tabs that flipped past the retaining spring every minute:

Anyway, it's got an extremely bright LED display, alarm, and AM/FM radio with which I can listen to any one of the dozen or so Mexican stations here in town, several shit-kicker stations, a couple thumpity-rappity-hoppity stations, or even one of the 3 or 4 half decent rock or 'Adult Contemporary' stations.
I had another alarm/radio I was using, but it didn't have near the reception this one does, and when it went on the fritz I went to replace it.

So I go to Sears on the way home from work of an evening, and the options were overwhelming, as anyone who has recently shopped for can attest to. It was almost impossible to get an alarm/radio without getting all sorts of add-ons. Just try to find one without a built in CD player, MP3/iPod pluggy-inny, 'Auto Time Set' ceiling projector toaster and shoeshine.

Well, I finally found one. The fewest accessories I could get away with was the auto time set feature. I figgered what the hell, if it works it works. If not, at least I don't have the bulk of all that other shit.

So I get home around oh, 5:00 pm, plug it in, and lo and behold! It says 2:00pm! Fine. You don't have to set the time, but you still have to deal with time zones and daylight savings. Fat lot of fucking good that does.
But the reception? The reception is ... mediocre at best. If I stand between here and here, I get good reception. If I move over here and brush my teeth however, it gets fuzzy and static-y, just like with any other radio EXCEPT the ole' woody in the nightstand. Great. Another piece of shit radio.

I live oh, two maybe three miles from the radio repeater towers with no obstructions to speak of, and I get shitty reception in the bathroom while Ole Woody out in the bedroom doesn't? NASA can pick up a 1/4 watt signal from the Pioneer spacecraft millions of miles away PAST the outer fringes of our solar system but yet I can't pick up a 50,000 watt FM signal from two fucking miles away? Modern electronics are shit.
And you guessed it, the radio was manufactured in "The Orient". It was inexpensive, and it is definitely without frills. But it is also a piece of shit. All I wanted was a little cheapy squawk box I could listen to in the shower in the quiet of the morning, but fuck me. I guess I'm out of luck.

And no, you don't want me to be singing in lieu of the radio. Seriously.

No Shot For You!

You know that as of late, I don't usually do political posts here. But this is just too gawddam important. The word needs to spread. And even though I am but a tiny zit on the ass of the blog world, my blog voice shall utter these uh, ... utterances:

HHS would become federal giant under Senate plan

That's because Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would be awarded unprecedented new powers under the proposal, including the authority to decide what medical care should be covered by insurers as well as the terms and conditions of coverage and who should receive it.

"The legislation lists 1,697 times where the secretary of health and humans services is given the authority to create, determine or define things in the bill," said Devon Herrick, a health care expert at the National Center for Policy Analysis.

For instance, on Page 122 of the 2,079-page bill, the secretary is given the power to establish "the basic per enrollee, per month cost, determined on average actuarial basis, for including coverage under a qualified health care plan."

The HHS secretary would also have the power to decide where abortion is allowed under a government-run plan, which has drawn opposition from Republicans and some moderate Democrats.

And the bill even empowers the department to establish a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation that would have the authority to make cost-saving cuts without having to get the approval of Congress first.

And on and on...

See, one of the things the fuckheads in the senate are trying to do here is not necessarily implement any real changes, but rather not implement any changes, then endow the power upon yet another fucking czar granting them unlimited authority by virtue of congressional approval.

So yes. Taxes will increase for everyone. And I mean every-fucking-one, not just "The Rich™". We'll see it in higher prices for goods and services even if it isn't a particular line item on the pay stub.
Rates will increase for already already covered individuals, while coverage will decrease.
Uninsured will have minimal coverage, but their lifestyle as well as medical treatments will be dictated by the Death Czar.

This fucked up shit is being steamrolled up our asses by politicians who have more interest in furthering their careers than they do in their constituents desires and everyone is going to pay dearly.

A Pat On The Back

Homeowner kills invader, the second such case in three days

For the second time in three days a home invasion suspect has been shot and killed by a Las Vegas homeowner.

Police say that about 2 a.m. Saturday two armed suspects broke into a northwest valley home near Durango and Grand Teton drives.

One of the suspects grabbed a 13-year-old boy. The noise alerted his father who grabbed a handgun and waited for the suspects to make their appearance.

Police say the suspect released the boy and walked toward the room where the man was poised with his weapon. The father then jumped out and shot the suspect once in the chest, killing him. The other suspect fled and remains at large.

On Thursday, another homeowner gunned down an intruder after he kicked open the man's door near Rancho and Vegas drives.
Rancho and Vegas. One of the shittiest parts of town.

Anyway, glad to hear this. Another thing the economy has done for us is drastically increase the number of home invasions.
However, there are a few bad guys thinking twice when news like this gets around.

Dirty Little Miss Kalifronia

This post isn't about a Miss California pageant. Nor is it about the Miss U.S.A ("U.S.A! ... U.S.A! ... U.S.A! ...") pageant.

Neither is it about the Miss California USA Pageant suing a Miss California contestant to get back money they gave her for fake tits, nor is it about the counter-suit filed by the Miss California contestant against Miss California USA Pageant for religious discrimination.

No, this post is about something I heard on one of the local radio stations this morning as I was getting ready for work. The morning D.J.s were discussing the likelihood that both parties dropped their suits due to the revelation of an "extremely graphic" home video of the aforementioned contestant:
"After being shown the hardcore home video - in which she apparently engages in a solo sex act - Prejean dropped her million-dollar-plus demands, and bolted from the negotiating table."
BWAAAAHHH!!!! Now that's funny.

But there's the best part. The morning show boys were of course, making the usual assorted comments about flying solo, self pleasure and so on, when one of them piped up and said she was playing "Vagina Hero". BWAAAHH!!! I laughed my ass off.

Pool of beer
Austrian beer lovers are being given the opportunity to swim in a pool of their favourite drink.

Spa owners in Starkenberg, Austria are filling three pools with 42,000 pints of lager, must to the delight of their customers.

They claim beer can treat skin conditions, blood circulation and help cure wounds.

Bathers can even drink from the 13ft beer pools if they wish, although there are several bars around the poolside promising a cleaner pint.

Head barman Markus Amann, 23, said: "These pools really can help some health problems - but if they don't work for you, you'll probably have drunk enough not to care about it anymore."

Yes, "The Thrill Is Gone" is always going to be on everyone's list, so now name me two others. I'm guessing you can't without firing up Google.

Other 'King' artists such as Albert King, Freddie King recorded songs every bit as good as B.B. Then there are artists such as Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Bobby Bland, John Lee Hooker, Kenny Wayne Shepard and Howlin' Wolf to name few, who have recorded TONS of great songs. All with different and unique licks and sounds.

Then there are all the old - I mean REAL old oldies. Blind Lemon Jefferson, Memphis Minnie, Robert Johnson, Etta James and Blind Blake.
These folks are some classics. Even though some of them only recorded a few songs, they are still legends. And I think a lot of the great blues performers get overlooked because of B.B.'s popularity.

NASA officials said their instruments were working, but the planned live photos were missing…. People who got up before dawn to look for the crash at Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory threw confused looks at each other instead.

About 6 hours later, the husband goes to his wife and says, 'Honey, you know I now have only 18 hours to live. Could we please do it one more time?'
Of course, the wife agrees, and they do it again.

Later, as the man gets into bed, he looks at his watch and realizes that he now has only 8 hours left. He touches his wife's shoulder and asks, 'Honey, please... just one more time before I die.'
She says, 'Of course, Dear,' and they make love for the third time.

After this session, the wife rolls over and falls to sleep.
Morris, however, worried about his impending death, tosses and turns, until he's down to 4 more hours.

He taps his wife, who rouses. 'Honey, I have only 4 more hours. Do you think we could...'

Speaking Of Idiots

From some random blog I stumbled across:
Here are some things which will help when your willpower is very feeble, to ward off the urge to eat, or worse, binge!

  • Pinch your thigh and see how you don't need food, because you should be eating your own flesh all away from the inside first, before you are deserving of actual legitimate sustenance.
  • Go to the library. You can research dieting or whatever, or you can read the classics, or some of the aforementioned listerature. Or you can do homework, or write letters, but the beauty of it is, since no food or drink is allowed, you'll have no choice but to abstain from a meal.
  • Buy some baby teething gel and rub it on your tongue, to numb your tastebuds.
  • If you're even considering eating, just hold your breath and count to 100. Chances are that you'll convince youself not to eat whatever it is you're craving in that time.
  • The scent of coffee has been proven to lessen ones appetite.
  • Chew the food but don't swallow it. Spit it in the bin.
  • If you're feeling dangerous, plan out the next few hours so that you're occupied for every single minute. Write a list of things to do for every 15 minutes. eg. exercise, surf the internet, email your friends, clean a room, read a book.
  • If you're feeling brave enough to face the kitchen, go there and throw out any potential binge foods. If you must, pour bleach/disinfectant/dishwashing detergent on the food, and then throw it away! (Anorexics are known for retrieving food from bins, or stealing food from strange places).
  • Pinch your ear! Apply pressure to the front of the ear, one at a time. The front of the ear is apparently a pressure point, in the area that controls hunger.
  • Let perfume replace chocolate. Every time you have a craving, or pass a bakery, sniff some Chanel no. 5. Apply it to a tissue and carry it with you. Smell has a powerful effect on appetite.
  • Clean something. Cleaning something dirty can make you lose your appetite. The toilet, the litter box, under the kitchen sink, scrubbing out the garbage bin, anything grimy or smelly. The mess, along with the smell of the cleaner, can put you off food for a while.
  • Become a teenage artist. Write anorexic poetry, tragic little verses about bones and stomachs and evil evil capsicums. Anorexics are ever so creative. Collect pictures of skinny girls. Stick them all in your notebook. Draw pictures of painful bony girls with tear stained faces and their head in their hands (their spines sticking out). This will take up most of your time.
Okay, you fuckers need help.

Matthew Millington, 31, a corporal in the Queen's Royal Lancers, had the operation to save him from an incurable lung condition.

But the donated organs - from someone who smoked 30 to 50 roll-up cigarettes a day - gave him cancer.
Uh, right. These doctors pull a set of lungs out of a dude who has been smoking 30 to 50 smokes a day and can't tell they're not fucked up?

Those people are just fucking stupid.

Sure, a light or occasional smoker's lungs may not have been as obvious. But 30 to 50 smokes a day?

First of all, the battery of test that would have - or at least should have - been run would have eliminated those lungs from the running. Not to mention they would have been visibly FUCKING BLACKER than an ordinary set of lungs.

Good ole socialized medicine.

Why seniors are not getting swine flu
Senior citizens appear to have dodged the bullet when it comes to swine flu.

The medical director is not surprised, saying the fact that the elderly have lived longer, plays a key role.

"It's thought that they built up some immunity to past exposure," said Dr. Lisa Clark, medical director of Presbyterian Village.
My sentiments exactly.

Try as you might, you just can't avoid every single bug out there. You can wash your hands and apply sanitizer every time you take your rubber gloves off, and like it or not you will still be exposed to some cooties.

Granted, those precautions cut down on contracting a lot of bugs on various surfaces, but there are also critters floating around in the air.
Germ-o-phobes would do well on occasion to let themselves be exposed to more cooties, so their immune system could do its job and build up its strength to protect you down the line.

I get a chuckle out of some people I see. They commence to wiping down doorknobs, keyboards, armrests on chairs, telephones, ... everything people touch. If there's a plague of sort going around the office and Jane sneezes on her keyboard just before she's called me for some tech support, then yes. I have a tendency to wash my hands right after I touch it. But good gawd. You just can't shelter yourself from everything all the time.

Back in the old days when I was a coal miner, we had no running water. Well, we did, but it was pumped from a stagnant pond of water that had already circulated through the machinery and the mine. It was definitely not fit for culinary usage. You didn't want to use it to wash your hands. And hand sanitizer wasn't something that anyone used back in the 70's or 80's, so there was none of that around.

Your hands would usually be covered in coal dust, rock dust, hydraulic oil, WD-40 and so on. If you had to take a shit during your shift you wiped your ass, then rubbed your hands with some rock dust (pulverized limestone) to 'clean' them.

So come lunch time, whatever you ate with your fingers would end up having smudges of the days work on it. But you know what? You didn't give a shit. You were hungry, and you ate your lunch. Grit, grime and all.

I very rarely get sick. And I firmly believe that a part of that is due to not taking antibiotics any more than I have to, and not trying to sequester myself from all the world's ills. If I feel some sort of bug trying to get the better of me I'll down some zinc to help out the immune system, but going to the doctor is a last resort.

We have all sorts of new or mutated bugs on this planet mostly because people have tried to overprotect themselves or their kids, and the shit is catching up with us.


A Funny

Via email:
A Husband and wife are out shopping in their local big box store. The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.

'What do you think you're doing?' asks the wife.

'They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans,' he replies.

'Put them back, we can't afford them,' demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

'What do you think you're doing?' asks the husband.

'Its my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,' replies the wife.

Her husband retorts: 'So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it's half the price.'
