If you would like to make a call, please hang up and try again.
Mood:  blue
Now Playing: If you need helpd, hang up and then dial your operator.
Topic: Normal

Ok, first off...

"If you would like to make a call, please hang up and try again. If you need helpd, hang up and then dial your operator."

This makes no sense. How can I hang up and dial the operator. I just hung up!

Anyway, I will not be blogging here anymore. I know you are upset (and by you I mean you, that one person who reads this), but this is life: change.

As a matter of fact... Big Fat Tiger Home is going down for a while... sorry peeps, I mean, peep.

More MySpace mumbo-jumbo
Mood:  d'oh
Topic: Poli-ticks


So apparently many of the users of the social-networking site MySpace are lying about their age. I know this is a big shock to you... and that's called sarcasm because if it is a shock to you then you obviously live in a hole.

You want to know why people are lying about their age? Because MySpace makes it so gosh darn hard for children to see each other's profiles. However, the bigger problem is that adults can easily create a profile that makes them look younger so they can do bad things. Then younger "rebels" can get in touch with these adults and get themselves in a load of trouble. That's not why people are lying about thier age and yet it kinda is.

I'm not gonna go into the realm of the mind of the typical teenager, because first off, there is no typical teenager, and second, I don't have the time to write a book for you. Let's just say that many kids wish they were older than they are for one reason or another, along with many adults who wish they were younger for one reason or another. These social-networking sites like MySpace are the perfect place for these two types to contact each other and connect.

This is what is bugging some officials. Many children can be tricked into thinking they have a relationship with these people and later get duped by thier "very good friend." So these officials are searching for a solution; to make sure people are as old as they say they are. How are they going to do this? By utilizing credit cards, public records, identity verification sites, subscriptions of sorts, and some other ideas such as my favorite, the "some technology to verify peoples ages" plan. They are apparently thinking of doing everything but requiring people to put in a social security number. They are even trying to check for driver's licenses (some how?).

MySpace claims to be on the ball, with algorithms, programs, and real people checking profiles daily. Yet I was able to find many profiles which featured a picture of a younger teenager than the profile said the age to be. Either those people are sleeping on the job, or MySpace needs a little help callin' these liers out.

Whatever happens, it doesn't really matter to me. If MySpace starts charging members for stuff then I'll just follow my friends to whatever site they move to next. As long as the site doesn't make me 100 years old or something, I'll be good.

Tongue out

Silent "P"
Mood:  chillin'
Topic: People

 

 

Ok,

So the other day, a co-worker of mine walks behind the front desk. Another co-worker is being silly and asks him what it would be like to have a silent "p" in front of his name ( so his name would be Pmatt, and the "p" would be silent). So Matt says "then my name would be 'Phh-Matt'" ...... and he pronounced the "p"

I had to remind him that the "p" was silent, so his name would still be pronounced "Matt".

 I think he caught on right as I began to say something...still, it was funny that he reacted so fast with "Phh-Matt."

Independence Day (no, not the movie)
Mood:  happy
I just love the Fourth of July. I love it because it's the one time of the year that everybody puts all thier differences aside, gathers together in large groups, and says "take that Great Britain!"

4 Superman Movies!!!!!
Mood:  not sure
Topic: Normal
Did you know that there are four original Superman movies? I didn't. I thought there were 2 maybe 3, but I definitely didn't think there were four. Shows how much I know about Superman.

The reason I bring this up would be the new Superman movie. I figured that I would go back and watch all of the other Superman movies in order to get where I'm supposed to be before watching the new one. The new movie is supposed to continue from the last movie (number four). So I am going to watch the original ones first.

But will it be worth it? I personally liked the first Batman movie, directed by Tim Burton. Batman Returns was pretty good too. The others were just short of ridiculous. Then a new Batman movie was made. This movie, Batman: Begins, was stupid. I did not like the characters, I did not like that guy playing Bruce Wayne, I didn't like Alfred, and I really didn't like that they went all the way back to the beginning. Everyone knows about Batman, and if there are kids who don't know, then let them watch the original movie or the animated series.

I thought the animated series was the best version of Batman, ever. This may be why I did not like the newer movie. However, while I liked the animated Superman series (later becoming The Batman-Superman Adventures and then the Justice League) I liked the Clark character from the Superman movies much better. Then again, who didn't like Dean Cain as Superman in the Adventures of Lois and Clark? Lets just hope this new guy can live up to Christopher Reeves' performance and do a lot better job than the guy from Smallville.

If God has a plan for me, I wish he would let me see it. I work a lot better when I can read the instructions.

Just some things
Mood:  quizzical
Topic: Normal
Over the years I have compiled a list of quotes that I have said. These quotes are original, and I made them up. Should any of these quotes resemble a quote, saying, proverb, anecdote, etc. by another person, it is merely coincidence.

----------------------------------------------------

I imagine it would be a dreadful thing to know everything. Who would want to talk to you when you already knew about that and every other subject?

I would not trust a magician to run the government. Not that he would use magic to manipulate the government, but in times of crisis he may just disappear.

No one can see the big picture when they are in it.

Like a painting, we are the details that God works on all our lives. Because we are part of the painting we will never understand the other details around us. But the big picture is a masterpiece.

Listening is the key to the door that opportunity likes to knock on.

"Nevers" never goes away

You can't create something to get recognition. You must create to show the real you.

The only thing you can expect is disappointment.

Wishes are something a cartoon makes.

Feelings drive emotions.

Bombs don't just blow up.

Nothing has power unless you believe it does

If you learn nothing else from your mistakes, learn that you will make mistakes.

Some say asking for help is a sign of weakness, but I say admitting you need help is a sign of strength.

Hatred is not real. It is simply the lack of love.

I find it to be quite fun talking with myself. Not only am I certain I understand what I am talking about, but I also know that I agree with everything I am saying.

If you are never wrong, then the only possible alternative is that the other 3 billion people in the world are.

There is always somebody going against the grain, and they are the ones we remember, the rest just looks like smooth wood

It's just like a scientist to give a definite answer to an unsolvable question.

It's never good to run away from your problems, but sometimes you need to get some distance from them to see them better. Then you can find a solution.

Pain is the result of working your muscles and bones to the extent of their capability causing harm to the body, and when you fail, the spirit.

Life is a lot like running: If you keep looking at where you've been and not at where you're going, you're bound to run into something.

When you get right down to it, a lot of sayings sound good but make no sense.

Sayings don't mean anything unless it directly relates to some aspect of the listeners life.

Science is the art of producing a theory that people will be astounded by.

Don’t complain about others unless they can’t complain about you.

Those who cheat get somewhere faster…
…those who work hard, get there smarter.

Success comes after the right choice

There is no real difference between fantasy and science fiction, except that in science fiction the hobbits and fairies have blaster rifles instead of swords.

Plan for the future, live for the moment.

Put the past behind you but bring it's lessons with you.

The Mystery of Science
Mood:  quizzical
Topic: Religions
I know a lot of people who are involved with science get turned off from a conversation when the guy in the opposite corner introduces God into the argument. I don't understand why, because God does answer something science can't.

According to science there was some all-of-a-sudden great explosion of energy which we call the Big Bang that started the universe. First off, very ingenious name. Second, how do we know that happened? How do we know that nothing just exploded into the universe? Or was it the collapse of a previous universe that caused the explosion of that collapsed energy into what we know as our universe? How can we prove that happened? If it did happen I still find another problem with this whole theory. By the way, a theory is an educated guess based on what we know to explain how what we don't know should work.

The other problem with this theory is this continuous expansion-contraction of the universe. It had to start somewhere, didn't it? Science has a lot of mystery involved with it; much more than most scientists what to admit. If the expansion-contraction of the universe is true then it had to start somewhere. There had to be something at the beginning to set off this continuous cycle of expansion and contraction of the universe. What was it though?

Maybe it was some strange phenomenon that we have not discovered yet; some odd arrangement of atoms that we have not tried or cannot achieve synthetically; some law of nature that we do not know about? Or it was God.

So the universe was either started by an being who always was and always will be, or it was started by some great sudden explosion of nothing. I find it easier to believe that God started the universe. But if you go the other way, with science, you are still relying on a belief that the universe just appeared one day and then evolved into what we know it to be now. Mystery at both ends.

P.S. - I do have proof that God exists.
