It wasn't me. You can't prove anything.


YouTube comments, my 2 cents


At no point to builds get smaller. The size of builds is currently outpacing the increase in hard drive size. You would think that hard drives are getting cheaper and thus it would be easier and easier to store things However, no one ever lets me remove builds. They want to keep everything forever. They want redundant storage and they want full forever backups. This runs in to money which means you cannot use cheap hard drives. It is a constant battle. I’m sure software building is not the only place this issue pops up.

My phone time waster app is reddit. I was waiting on the one on one meeting with the VP yesterday. That is the most business sentence I’ve ever written. I stood in the hall and waited for a phone conversation to finish before going in. I simply popped the phone out and hopped on reddit. I’ve also missed bus stops because of reddit.

When I was a kid, they put Tums in the bottom of the vending machines. it was in a little roll like life savers.  I guess it is an over the counter medicine so they quit at some point. I could use this particular good old day again if I’m honest. I don’t think you can get high off them in any way. Not sure what the harm is. Are they afraid of people having a comfortable stomach or something?
Sounds like Al Qaeda has quite a lucrative kidnapping business going on. They pick their future victims based on who has paid in the past. Go figure.

Go watch these videos. You are welcome.


What would you call this look?


160 children died making the Hamas tunnels as of the end of 2011. The friend I lost over the Isralie Hamas conflict needs to read this.

Gigafactory! is just a cool word.


Thoughts while waiting for a ride

Homeward bound


This section of the blog has become the only section of the blog. It has also pretty much deteriorated in to a bunch of links. Suck it up.

Hamas vs Israel cartoon. I lost a friend over this argument.

RPG: Role Playing Game and Rocket Propelled Grenade. Win win.

Well, that is mighty white of France. God forbid someone try to help these folks defend their homeland or anything. It is just easier if they surrender. They should get used to it if they indeed go to france.

If you ask 5 economists to predict the future you get 10 answers and they will all be wrong.

HD sound (wideband audio). You can sound better than a couple of tin cans and a string on your expensive smartphone.

Real lower income over the past decade.

Right on top of the “Give me a fucking break!” pile.

Employer coverage declining. Not sure how I feel about this one. I think employer based coverage is completely the wrong way to do it.

He’s right. Intelligence is an illusion beyond math and logic.


What is ISIS? It is winning. I’m telling you, once they make a country and people bitch about the busses not running on time, they will settle down.

“Send Me an Angel” is the most shit eighties song. Discuss in the comments.

Kerberos doesn’t throw a message “Your shit expired. Re-login.” It just sort of kind of stops letting you do stuff on the network. This not only causes a dip in productivity, but needless support calls.

You know, you cannot take 100% of income with taxes. Leave the sucker rent money.  There is a break point where people start to look for other avenues to live. I’ve heard people estimate that taking more than 50% of income as tax will cause entrepreneurs AKA the people who create jobs for others, to bugger off and work their economical magic elsewhere.

Consumer spending is the king of the economy. Confidence determines how much people spend. The UK is thinking the forcing employers to have a pension plan was not as good an  idea as it sounded because that new spending by employers is replacing raises. This makes people less confident. They spend less.

Chinese eyec hart. Holy-moly

People who kayak and canoe all over the place seem to think it is very peaceful and relaxing. This is based on the pictures they take and blog entries made while doing those tasks.

Today I lost a friend over the middle east conflict. She put her opinion online. I answered with my opinion and she dropped me as a friend. One more casualty in the many wars of the world.

As far as I feel, there is no anger involved. If you do not want to hear someone's opinion you must be prepared for counter opinion. This is not just for thi internet. It is in all comunications.

What I said from memory. "Hamas' s chaer calls for the distruction.  The people of the Palistinian Teratorys voted Hamas in to power. The Palistinians got the government they diserve."

This one is for you Adam

  • Animals
    • More than one of us have experienced hand-me-up cats. That is a cat that was purchased by or for a child left at the parent’s place when the kid leaves for college or just bails.
    • Giving animals as gifts should be banned unless pre agreed upon by all parties.
    • Finches live a long time, but not nearly as long as paret.
    • Animals can be needy
    • Difficult to take care of pets while you have to travel all over the planet

    • Israeli Palestinian issues
  • T-Shirts from TV shows

This was a pretty good conversation considering there were five of us today.


I was on the road in the magic time of ten minutes to six this morning and no honk. I was not in the first section of rad at that time. It makes me wonder if the honker only travels part of the road. It is more likely just a variant in the time this morning.

I’m fighting to get notes in to my Evernotes. I want to put more stuff in this database. It is weird.  I feel a sense of accomplishment when I plunk down a new note that I’ll actually come back to at some point.

One day my phone battery will last all day and then some. Other days, like today, It barely makes it past lunch before beeping at me. No number of reboots or killing apps seem to make any difference. Since I encrypted my phone and card, there has been no noticeable difference.

Leftists cheat more? I think this needs to be expanded.

Time sounds off on how shit our current government is.

Hamas targeting journalists could backfire on them. You know, many people in the media might actually side with Israel if they think their lives are on the line. Funny how that works. It’s easy to hate the Jews until they are the only thing between you and annihilation.


What! No selfie today?

Herb, the shitty angel

I’m going to die. I remind myself of this nightly before I go to sleep. That or it is that shitty angel named Herb with the glasses who thinks it is more important to remind people of the frucking obvious instad of letting them get some sleep.

Herb must be on overtime because I thought about it today. Now I don’t know if Herb has a thing about ruining people’s day or if he is just out of ideas for helping. I thought about dying today at lunch. I was purchasing my third chicken sandwich from McDonald's this week. This time I got fries with that. It hit me, “Kelly, you are going to die.” I thought about my day and the past two weeks and I thought back to myself “You know, it would be great if you dropped me right here because I wouldn’t have to go back to work.”

It isn’t that I want to die. I just want to kick back on a beach in the warm daylight of an island somewhere and toss back mities until I check out on my way back to the beachside bar..

It isn’t that I am unafraid of death. I’m terrified of the pain and fear before death. I really fear dying in a situation where someone else is depending on me and I fail them. That is the hero wanna be in me.

I have no idea what goes on out there in the universe I have some ideas about where our consciousness goes. Most of them are pretty cool. The trouble is Nature isn’t cool. nature give zero shit about me here on Earth why would that change on the other side. What is the point of life? Why are we here. Herb knows. He isn’t talking.

  • Nothing. You grab your chest, try to scream, but can’t. Fade to black.
    • No sense of time passing so who cares.
    • This state was not so bad before I was born, so I’m not too worried.
  • Reincarnation. I don’t like being here now, why the hell would I want to come back?
    • My luck, I would come back as every tadpole in a pond all being eaten by the same fish at the same moment. One after the other.
  • Christianity - Heaven seems boring. Hell sucks worse than Earth.
    • I’m going to catch hell from Adam if he reads this.
  • Judaism - I have no idea where jews believe they go when they die.
  • Islam - I don't want to know what Muslim heaven looks like.
  • Buddhism - Are they are the reincarnation thing?
  • What happens to witches when they die?
  • Stepping in to the light. There is some drug you can take that will kick off a step in to the light illusion in your head while you lie there in euphoria. Then it wears off and you have to go back to your life.

I need to do some research on religions. I’m not going to pick one based on the description of heaven and hell. I am just curious how long I can get this list. Wave it in front of Herb’s face on the way up.


Something to read while on the toilet because you might just shit.

Trueblood has jumped the shark. This, the last, season is all about bashing Republicans. Real Republicans, not fictional ones. Bad form HBO.

mmmmm shiny.



Several servers had some issues this morning. I walked in and ka-bluy! Got things going to a point. Our 15 minute meeting last an hour. Missed lunch because people who wanted to go to the good place wanted to go to a much more expensive place. I just ended up skipping lunch. I’m fat enough.

More illegals entering Texas than people born here. Gives a bit of scale to the issue.

I promise, Android has something similar. Apple IOS has a backdoor.

Trueblood makes a “Republicunt” crack. Prove their Demetwat leaning.

Kary not invited (uninvited I bet) to Peace talks between Israel and Hamas (Note, I didn’t say Gaza or the Palestinians. That is because Hamas is te one in charge and the one talking .. Oh, and shooting missiles at civilians.)

Maybe the IRS didn’t lose all those emails. Will anyone go to jail over this tyranny? Something about the level of “destroyed” or something.

Tel Aviv airport put on flyby status for U. S. carriers for at least 24 hours. Pesky war going on and all.

France getting a head start on surrender to Russia. Interesting idea to screw Putin (Russia) in that article. It will never fly. it makes way too much sense. God forbit the U. S. bring herself to punish an aggressor nation.

They were in a war zone.

Going on the background list


Nothing left but the sword.

For a warm humid night, it is nice outside. There are neighbors outside talking at 22:30. This neighborhood can't be all bad.

Just watched Ender’s game. I hate it when I figure out the ending half way through the story. I had a pretty good idea what was going on and how it was ll going to end. I also caught the little twist with the training before it happened. I wasn’t even paying that close attention. It just all came to me as the movie unfolded. I read too much.

Russian missile takes down passenger jet in Ukraine. I’m upset, but not surprised.


Many a dusty tomb

I had planned on taking a picture of the mystery honker this morning. It was sprinkling so I just waited until just after 6:00 to leave the house. Most of the time I get honked at is around 5:50 so I figure a 10 minute head start lowers my odds of getting the honk. It worked this morning. Another day.

Kimber Super Carry pistol review.

I tried to publish yesterday’s notes to my blog. I write these things in Google Docs. I use it on my phone as well. It is awesome. The Blogger app sucks. It will not accept all the formatting from Docs. Odd that because they are the same company and all. No bullets, no styles, no nothing except text and enter key presses. Come on Google.

White House response to world falling apart.

Tesla hacked

The best breakup advice I’ve ever heard. I didn’t catch who said this. Paraphrasing: Don’t explain. Be firm. Don’t be friends. Go separate ways.

Biting the bullet and getting a water resistant case for my phone. I figure I’ll have it for at least another year Lord willing. Yesterday’s jaunt to lunch in the rain convinced me. I felt like a pussy complaining about the pleasant summer shower.

Really frikkin old keyboard

This is what my doodles in meetings look like.


Listened to an old radio show (Johnny Dollar) about a king cobra. They distracted the snake by playing the flute. The trouble is, it is not the music of the flute that distracts the snake. It is the motion of the end of the flute. Watcha snake charmer some time. Snakes cannot really hear the flute at all. Their sense of hearing works much differently than that of we humans. How do I know this fact? I don’t remember ever learning it. I picked it up somewhere.

One of these old radio shows said “Any unsolved crime is perfect.” I disagree. The perfect crime is no crime at all. The perfect crime is never found out. A crime that is known and unsolved is simply in stasis. I say there is no perfect crime. There are simply imperfect crime solvers.

I attempted to video the person who honks at me this morning. I got the camera raised, but I’m not sure ifI got anything worth looking at. I ll check it when I get to the house.

“That joke about the farmer’s daughter and the salesmen ...” There are like 100. I’ve heard at least 10. I can remember none.

Lunch conversation
  • Weather
    • Raining outside.
    • Walking to lunch regardless of the weather.
    • Weather in places where everyone else worked in their careers.
    • The rain.
    • How wet we were getting
    • Which way had more awnings, fewer puddles
  • Work
    • Projects at work
    • Dodging attending meetings
    • How I use our (work) GUI
  • IBM and Apple doing something together that no one quite grasps.
  • Telephone Road and it’s history. We still don’t know where  the name came from.
    • By “working class” they pretty much mean “shit hole”


Honk, and some other stuff that happened

I took this after lunch

The idea was to show how wet I got on the walk in the rain, but it just didnt turn out.

Out of work. Headed to the family


They are going to start making me pay extra for my beard


Another day, another honk. Today happened at 5:50 this morning. I need to just have the camera recording as I walk from now on until I either catch this person or move.

China is headed for a fiscal clusterfuck in 10 to 20 years. Workforce might shrink. People are not buying goods domestically. The lack of independence means comparatively little (legal) entrepreneurship.  Could be interesting to watch the Chinese economy simply crumble under its own weight. They might just think a war is in order, but they don’t have enough young people to fight, start the next generation, and keep the economy going.



The walk in this morning was pleasant. I got good timing on the lights. No one tried to kill me. I left early so the idiot with the pickup didn’t have a chance to honk at me (Nothing threatening, just annoying) Calling it a win. Need to leave earlier more often.
Guy invents a solvent that dissolves anything. It eats a hole in the Earth’s crust and swallows a city block before someone figures out how to stop it. This is a show on the old time radio shows I listen to. I can’t get enough of these things. The advertisement was ironized yeast.

Calling someone who breaks the law in order to be in this country an undocumented resident is like calling someone who steals a car an undocumented car owner. They should be treated like criminals because they are breaking the law. They have just been getting away with it for a long time.

Illegal Alien is to Undocumented Immigrant as car thief is to undocumented car owner. #immigration.

Time for Heros. Book. I just read.

Work was hard yesterday. It was hard again today. I got in to work at 06:30 or so. I left at 17:00. We did go to lunch. I suppose I could be gobbled up by aliens on a weekly basis. That job would suck more.
