While surfing the web I came across this website called The Future Faster, which pretends to be a grass root’s campaign for promoting technological growth and spurring healthy competition.
So, it’s obviously a sack of crap paid for by telecom companies looking to halt the growth of municipal broadband ventrues, and stifle competition by the little ISP’s. It’s got some crappy, miscilanious, vauge petition to sign with is obviously just crap, ton’s of misleading “business-speak” and catch phrases like, and a just a lot of misleading sentances and ideas all designed to fool somebody into believing that these people are trying to help you.
But here’s the best part:
Do you see that cell phone? Jesus christ on a stick! Do you think for one minute that I’m going to want a group that think’s that’s the future to have anything…ANYTHING to do with my decision on whether or not broadband is regulated by government or business?
I mean christ, if your going to try to give me some hard sell bullshit about how evil a municipally run broadband solution is, at least use stock images from this CENTURY!!!!…..moron’s!
Here’s a good page that exposes them for the slush fund, dirty money, lobbying dolt’s they are.
bah, stupid people just get under my skin…..
- New surgery for removing Ass Crack so you can wear low riding jeans without worry.
- 4 Trunk Monkey movies: You have to see the last one, it’s hilarious! Sent to me by Jeremy
- Rad2Go: The Q Personal Transporter….omg, wall mart ripped off the segway!
- Live Cat Soccer!
- Nothing like greedy CEO’s, especially when you own stock in their company.
So done with pergo’ing…for today anyways. Extreme Home makeover’s is on tonight, and don’t want to miss that. Plus trading spaces competition is on as well.
Here’s a few cute cat pics I meant to put up earlier, just been busy. Plus the one with me and nibbler we just took today. He’s actually trying to lay down in the pergo box….thank god he’s pathetically cute, cause he’s mental.
Must be to much cat nip…makes you do strange things:
Now if you’ll excuse us, me and Jen are going to go sit down, watch some TV and have some well deserved chinese food.
So we finished the Guest room today and started on the master bedroom..pergo-wise. I think we’re really getting better at doing this stuff (but without jen i’d be lost completely because I can’t draw a straight line). That being said, i’m very tired and my back is killing me. Anyway I uploaded some pics of the guest room floor. Now keep in mind we are going to attach the quarter round in all the rooms later, so you’ll see those green things (1/4″ spacers) all over the place.
Aside from that, got the dryer all cleaned out (full of old lint), sprayed for bug’s, and even managed to kick everyone’s ass at trivial pursuit last night. Damn….i’m good.
Just can’t get enough of it apparently!
Had the convergence on the Hitachi in the family room adjusted earlier this week:
The computer desktop seems to look better on it now.
Also I ordered myself a new toy I’m not telling yet, but I’ll wait till it get’s here and then show it off. Also me and Jen got to play with the nail gun’s today (FUN!) and finished up some final touches on the dryer vent system to increase efficiency and keep bird’s out of the vent. Now I just have to find time to clean the gutter’s….
- Don’t click on this game. You’ll get sucked into it and then realise like 10 minutes have passed and you haven’t blinked Curses to Jen for sending me the link.
- This one’s for Rick. How to never lose Pepsi’s I-tunes giveaway.
- Linux is for Bitches.
- Another fun little game called Monkey Lander.
Because I’m a man, when I lock my keys in the car I will fiddle with a wire long after hypothermia has set in.
Because I’m a man, when the car isn’t running very well, I will pop the hood and stare at the engine as if I know what I’m looking at. If another man shows up, one of us will say to the other, “I used to be able to fix these things, but now with all these computers and everything, I wouldn’t, know where to start.”
Because I’m a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan. You’re a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so for you this isn’t a problem.
Because I’m a man, I can be relied upon to purchase basic groceries at the store, like milk or bread. I cannot be expected to find exotic items like “cumin” or “tofu.” For all I know, these are the same thing. And never, under any circumstances, expect me to pick up anything for which “feminine hygiene product” is a euphemism.
Because I’m a man, when one of our appliances stops working, I will insist on taking it apart, despite evidence that this will just cost me twice as much once the repair person gets here and has to put it back together.
Because I’m a man, I must hold the television remote control in my hand while I watch TV. If the thing has been misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it (although, at one time I was able to survive by walking to the TV and physically turning it on and changing the channel).
Because I’m a man, I don’t think we’re all that lost, and no, I don’t think we should stop and ask someone. Why would you listen to a complete stranger? I mean, how the hell could he know where we’re going?
Because I’m a man, there is no need to ask me what I’m thinking about. The answer is always either sex, cars or football. I have to make up something else when you ask, so don’t ask.
Because I’m a man, I do not want to visit your mother, or have your mother come visit us, or talk to her when she calls, or think about her any more than I have to.
Because I’m a man, you don’t have to ask me if I liked the movie. Chances are, if you’re crying at the end of it, I didn’t.
Because I’m a man, I think what you’re wearing is fine. I thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine, too. Either pair of shoes is fine. With the belt or without it—looks fine. Your hair is fine. You look fine. Can we just go now?
Because I’m a man, and this is, after all, the year 2004, I will share equally in the housework. You just do the laundry, the cooking, the gardening, the cleaning, the vacuuming, and the dishes, and I’ll do the rest.
This has been a public service message for Women to better understand the Male
Tommy sent me a picture I took using his camera a few weeks ago. There are all the flowers my sister got after her surgery. Crazy, eh? It was like a florist’s store blew up in there.
Insane I tell you, nothing says get better like watching pretty things slowly die for no reason but your own amusement
- I never got my copy, but here’s the owner’s manual for the penis.
- Sumo florist…um yeah….nsfw (not safe for work…audiowise).
- Wash that down with some soviet kitten’s.
- Here’s a little game called Fan and Ball. It might contain a Fan and a ball…i’m just not sure, these thing’s can be tricky sometimes.
Well only 7 1/2 hour’s till I can sleep. Damn all nighter’s
Speaking of things that are crappy, made the first mortgage payment today. Now the funny thing is our bank offer’s a “mortgage accelerator” program that claims to pay off your mortgage 6 years quicker, and save you 55,000. All for a one time membership fee of 295, and a 5.95 monthly fee.
Umm….let me think, cause ya know, it’s not like I could just pay an extra 200 towards the principle myself and get the same results with paying the stupid little fee’s. Besides, why would they want me to pay it off quicker..that’s interest they loose out on. I’m telling you this, companies are in business to make money, and if you think for a second that a bank will help you pay off you mortgage quicker and save money your a freakin’ fool. You might as well be in the back of a little yellow bus licking the window because that’s how stupid you are.
Anyways, back to work…..
Ever had just a real shitty day? Just remember it can always get worse (courtesy of Jen):
And I added some pics of the room we finished pergo’ing last night!!! (YAY)
Here you can see a before pic of the closet in the room:
And here are the first few rows of pergo we installed:
And here’s some custom cut’s we did for the closet, we used a scroll saw with a fine wood cutting blade:
As you can see the closet corner’s came out [austrailian]FANTASTIC! [/austrailian] on the first cut:
Finally here’s a shot of the room, the extra pergo boxes were used to hold the floor in place as we worked on it:
