One in three Mexicans want to come to the U. S.. I cannot blame them, I would want to come to this country too. It is an exceptional country. I would also want them to do it legally.

When you hear the word “diverted” in legal documentation, think “stole” or “cheated out of”.



What is the point in locking a door any more?

Comcast says they do have an unlimited data plan. People can pay for as much as they want. There is no limit to how much it can cost.

Trigger pull. This helped me exactly zero. So, practice. I already knew that. Thanks.

I’m hearing a statistic. For every black male killed in the U. S. by a police officer, sixty are killed by other black males.

It is difficult for cops to retire because the life is a whole life. You have to dedicate yourself to the career to survive. Once you are out of the loop, you are out.

Bowing is bringing up the durable goods numbers. This means fuckall.

Photographers are not the customers on Gawker. They simply provide a commodity much like a drilling platform delivers oil to a refinery.

Race trumps child molestation. The authorities didn’t want to make a fuss because the perpetrators were Asian. By Asian they probably mean Pakistani or in some way Middle Eastern. Many of the victims were young white girls. it wasn’t PC you see. (an excellent opinion on the matter)

Puting the “real” in reality. How many people have died shooting reality TV of some kind?

But Sweetie, we only got one case.

Notes

Has Jihad burned itself out? Let’s hope so. A deep hatred for one kind of person and a thirst for suicide in the name of a god is not a marketable skill.

The people who want us dead are not all far far away. Another view.

An armed nation is a polite nation. Do you really want to get in a fight with someone who might have a pistol in their pocket?

China doing the drone thing. Matter of time before firearms give way to small armed drones.

I found out this morning that my IT privileges have been removed. YES! Happy dance!

The Jury in my head on militarization of U. S. police is still out.

I do not agree with all of anything. I do not agree with some of most things.I do not agree with most of many Even when I do agree with something, if I knew all the details, I would probably start disagreeing with at least some of it. This does not make me a contrarian. I’m simply observant.

Fucking France (Francistan) What are the numbers in the U. S.?

Out of the loop? Well, it is better than actively trying to destroy the country.


Stay there. Will someone please kidnap these assholes and hold them for ransom? And I mean, don’t give them up until you get paid. Just keep holding. Keep holding.

Two year old duck tape holding the tail light on a car.

I prefer calling it duck tape over duct tape because it is a lousy duct work repair medium. That medal tape works much better. I learned that it was called duck tape because it was used to waterproof ammo cans many moons ago. It was so useful, it was used  all over the place. The habit stuck with the GIs as they transitioned back to the world.

Los Angeles was going to hand out iPads to students. Many broke and many turned up missing. They are dropping the effort. The idea was to increase technical expertise of students. However, iPads don’t really present much of a technical challenge. To be honest, few computers present a challenge of any kind these days. It seems like most tasks are done for you if you just click next a few hundred times.

I can't remember the last thing I used that took C batteries

Notes

I know people with a million dollars in the bank. I do not have this. They can afford to be liberal. I cannot.

ALS Ice Bucket challenge. Some say no on principle. I’m just broke. I pray for ALS research and I don’t have a problem with more aggressive research methods. I do draw lines, don’t get me wrong.

Using Evernote, I have 335 notes. I had a goal last week of adding five notes. Now I’m thinking I won’t pay any attention until I have 1000 or more. It is stressful trying to think of important things I need to remember every day to add to the database. I mean, what do I need to remember? That is a surprisingly difficult question.

Hollywood blasting Hamas? Am I dreaming?

China develops their own OS. Tells Microsoft (and by extension Apple) to go fuck itself.

Metric. I’m going to vote for whomever says they will switch the U. S. to the Metric System.

I have gotten to the point where I HATE intros to videos and TV shows. Entries should be no longer than 4 seconds. I kind of like the intros on TV shows that has content playing and just puts credits on in an unobtrusive manner. I’ve thought of doing something like that on my vlog, but it would take effort.

Twitter is getting nuts. I do not know if I’m doing something wrong, but I’m getting contacted by bots with pretty woman's pictures on the accounts. They are not explicit. They are just these “buy followers” sites. Is it possible to transfer followers from one Twitter account to another? Is there a way to filter them without blocking nine million accounts?

I ride the bus at least a couple times a week. I wonder every time if it is going to be the trip that gives me Ebola or tuberculosis. Is this the trip where some maniac stabs me? Will a dump truck t-bone us passing Dairy Ashford? Will the driver have a flashback and run us in to a telephone poll? Will I get hit walking to or from the stop? Did the rout change as of last night? Will the busses stop running for whatever reason?

Happy Dance. This asshole is pushing up the grass.

Lots of communication going between ISIS (al Qaeda 2.0) and Mexican drug cartels. What bad things could possibly happen with no enforcement on one of our borders? Presents a short term and a long term threat.

I wrote kit and caboodle down today for the first time in a long time. It is an under used phrase.

Meeting


2014-08-21

Lunch Conversation

  • Eating
    • Portions are larger in the US than in the UK
    • Doggy bags not as prevalent in UK
  • Things to do on a hot muggy weekend.
    • Swim
    • Play in the hose
    • Lawn work
    • Anything NOT involving the outside
  • Technology
    • Not that long ago a 40 inch TV was a couple grand. Now they are the cheap alternative.
    • Japanese cars came with Bluetooth as standard before American cars.
      • Ford and others wanted you to pay for multiple thousand dollar kits to get bluetooth.

We were missing the talkers at lunch. We were worried it was going to be a quiet lunch. It worked out though.


Notes

Sheldon Cooper president. Interesting theory. Wouldn’t it be funny to find out a president really was nuts after the fact?

Hamas using human shields. But it is Israel saying it so it can’t be true.

We will defend the world from herself, unless it’s Israel or jews. They are on their own.

My science worlds collide. AWESOME!

When I find out a celebrity endorses a product, I first wonder how much cheaper it would be without their indorsement. I then try to compare to other similar products that do not have the endorsement.

Nazis were left not right. Here is more proof. Remember Nazi was short for National Socialist party.

Elle's computer has a hobby

Notes

I made coffee this morning. I left the lid open on the coffee pot and hot water poured back in to the reservoir for 15 minutes while I fucked off in a discaffeinated stopper. I found it later still dumping hot water in the reservoir and managed to get it pointing the correct direction without catastrophe. Now, how does the coffee taste?

Not long ago I had to change my walking time from my house to the bus stop. I did this to avoid someone who keeps honking at me as they pass. It is not threatening, it is just annoying. Still, my new time of walking keeps me in the dawn zone. I like being out there when the sun comes up. I’m far too lazy to do this without a reason.

Someone said it costs $57,000 in Los Angeles to raise a preschooler to the point they enter school. Who the hell can afford that?

Kids learning on tablets with blocks for example, have difficult times translating to 3d hands on tasks. You just straight up need to practice in the real world to get real world results. the 2d stuff is good for exercise or practice of the skills. Not really development. Things like letters and words and such work fine. I mean, I learned on flash cards. Not much difference there to a drool resistant tablet.

The dairy industry uses lasers to zap male sperm (a sperm that has a Y chromosome as opposed to 2 X chromosomes). Is this being made available to humans?

My list of goals at work is slowly oozing in to a pool of lumpy despair. I’m losing the ever heating battle with software builds.

All those who believed in Al Sharpton please stand up.




People die on payday more often.

In Austria they get 38 days of vacation. In the U. S. 1 in 4 full time workers gets 0 paid vacatin. Greatest country in the world? I’m doubting that.


Once .. maybe twice a long time ago, someone lived and loved and died before they were done. Then came the wondering. In their reality, they turned in to a gigantic ball of iron based gas with the intelligence of at least a human. They floated around and lived and loved and became something new long after they were done being themselves and ready to move on.

Shut up and write the damn book you sadistic gnome!

Security is at the top of all to do lists. If you don’t see it, it is implied. That is a mighty nice looking Oil boom you have  there Mexico. Shame if anything happened to it.

No victor, no vanquished. That sounds like something a beta personality says.

Notes

I work for a huge company. I like the development meetings we have every week. I’ve learned that having a great product doesn’t matter if the customers have not heard about it.

From now on, I need to record every interaction with a big company whether over the phone or in person.

Lunch conversation
One of the guys came over from the UK for an extended work stay. We covered leasing a car for a year. Turbos on new cars. Ford seems to get smaller more efficient engines. This person went with the Volks Wagon because that was the only place that would give him a 1 year lease.


Whisky education of the day.

I have Bye Bye Mrs. American Pie going through my head with the death of Robin Williams substituted for music. Rest in peace Robin. You were a funny motherfucker.

Skipped lunch

NGO (Non Government Organizations) are not charity. They are paid. They provide aid. They are not free. I recommend against donating to them.

Today has been a strange day. Some things are working and some are not. I’ve gotten help, but I’ve needed help. I’ve added tasks. Have not pulled tasks (marked as completed). Robin Williams died yesterday and I’m trending a bit on Twitter with an observation.  Just strange.

Mowing and rainy Sunday evening

Monday evening thunderhead

Notes


I sweat more this morning than I have in any other 1 hour time span in my life. I was soaked by the time I got to the bus stop. I was dripping wet. I got to work and sucked down two bottles of water (same one refilled) and sweat some more. The best thing is the shirt I’m wearing is one of the ones my eleven year old daughter left in the laundry overnight. So, I smell like mildew and sweat. Good Monday so far. I have some meetings today. maybe people will stop inviting me.

Yesterday, when I mowed the yard I sweat like crazy too. I expect that. Not sure what is going on besides August and insane humidity. Still need to weed whack a section of the yard.

Waiting in a very hot car

Notes

I run BOINC on my computer at work .My company endorses off hour use. The client I use allows weekend and weeknight settings. I used to run this kind of program on all machines I had access to. It was great when there was a sense of competition. Now that they don’t really keep track any longer, it is not as much fun. I still do it out of a giving back sort of thing.

Why do we pay the UN so much money? They are out to get us and our allies.

Where are the flying cars?

The end is getting closer every day. Just what will we do when computers are smarter than we are? That question will have to be answered soon.

This kind of shit is why we have climate deniers and people who won’t inoculated their kids.

A “Fuck you!” from Russia. Multiple acts of war. I get the U. S. laying down and taking it with this administration, but you would think that Canada would stand up against the Russians.

Notes

I can’t remember the last time I got a comment on my blog.

Illegal entry from Ghana. No mention why the immigration official did this. I assume it was to get this person out of a country overrun by the sick and dying.

# Some perl script information I came across in my travels today
Variables Frigging Perl has gobs of symbols.
$ = scalar (numbers and strings for example)
@ = arrays
% = hashes
Push function Put on the end of an array
Unshift function Put on the beginning of an array
Readdir No options at all.

Best news I’ve heard all day. Sprint will not buy T-Mobile. I hate when my phone carrier gets bought out. Everything just becomes as shit as the new carrier ever was. It happened with at&t and with another company I was with. I can’t remember the name. Good news for me

Notes

2014-08-06
This ebola outbreak is scary stuff. They have brought people to the U. S. with the disease. I shudder when I think of it. I fear someone will be found with the disease in the U. S. who has come over the southern border and the CDC will close down the invasion in the name of controlling the spread.

Texas wins bid for SpaceX launch site. Love it. SpaceX is just cool.

2 Star killed in Iraq was an engineer. Hits pretty close to home.

The London times censored calling Hamas’ using children as human shield “child sacrifice”. Isn’t it though? If you haven’t been following what is going on, here is a link.

My God! This sounds like 1938 stuff just before WWII. Russia and Ukrain (and Poland).

Some people making up the rules don’t care if you get raped. They are only worried about keeping their jobs and staying in control of how you live your life.

SETI nearly burned down. I don’t think it was Aliens. They did lose a great lunch place.

Voter ID: Yes, I believe the same ID check should be carried out on people who come in to vote that is carried out on people who enter the offices of congress representatives.

Iron Dragon board game was mentioned in my presence today. Just keeping track of these things.

I’ didn’t listen to any podcasts today. Just didn’t. Not sure what happened. I listend to some online radio, but I was so busy that it just didn’t come up.

Lance was spot on
