Playing catch up

Comcast sucks. Yesterday I worked from home… at least I tried to. My cable internet connection was almost completely useless. I was receiving packet loss spikes near 100%. The majority of DNS requests failed, I couldn’t stay connected to the FTP server at work, and telnet? God forbid! Every attempt down that road would crash before I had time to enter my username and password. Ridiculous. Thanks Comcast.

Today the packet loss is down, but not gone. At least I can do well enough to post this.

As an early birthday present I got a digital camera, and man is it a beauty. Eventually I’ll get around to getting some photos up.

Drugs + Subway = good. My friend and I have a tradition of eating at the local subway, and last Saturday we did just that, and as far as I could tell, the employees there were on drugs. It took over 5 minutes to get the girl actually making my sandwich to get all the toppings on it (and while, I do put a lot of toppings on, that is ridiculous), as she kept staring off into space for extended periods of time, forcing me to repeat each item several times. Ok, so that part wasn’t good, but a different girl was working the register, and she appeared no less zonked. She didn’t say much, but favored me with a freakishly wide-eyed unflinching stare. Ok, still not good. Creepy in fact. No, the good didn’t come until after I payed, whereupon I was handed a ream of stamps (it ended up being 17, entitling me to two “free” 6″ sandwiches). My friend only got 13. Stoners like me more.

To detractors of Michael Moore’s latest documentary, here are the sources he uses.

Has anyone heard about the documents concerning Bush’s military detail in Alabama? You know, the ones that are missing? Well, it seems that the story hasn’t been getting all that much press for some reason or another, and it seems like it should. Bush is our president, and as such, it wouldn’t seem outrageous that his military record would be something we should know about, at least not to me. Yet there is a gap in what we know. In question are payroll documents that detail a 3 month period in 1972-3, where there are suspicions that Bush was AWOL. It probably wouldn’t be an issue except his fellow Air National Guardsmen don’t remember seeing Bush there at all. Bush also lost his ability to fly for a part of this time because he skipped his flight physical. Perticularly curious about this is that Bush’s good friend James Bath was grounded at the same time, which leads some to draw the conclusion that they probably had a drug or alcohol binge, and hence refused to take their physicals. Also, there are also several ways Bush could resolve this issue if he so desired: he could release his W-2s for the time or he could have the master microfiche from the Air Reserve Personnel Center in Denver released, which details whether he received the minimum number of active-duty points for days served. He refuses to do either of these things… Suspicious? I’d say so.

I’m feeling biblical, so heres a bible quote:
“There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of a donkey and whose emissions was like those of horses” - Ezekiel 23:20

Aber auch bei Berufsunfähigkeit, Unfall oder der Absicherung Ihrer Rente (Rürup) lohnt sich immer ein Versicherungsvergleich mehrerer Gesellschaften.

“since you are all such good customers I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by $20.” So now dinner for the ten only cost $80. The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free.But what about the other six — the paying customers? How could they divvy up the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his “fair share?”The six men realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would end up being *paid* to eat their meal.So the restaurant owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.And so the fifth man paid nothing, the sixth pitched in $2, the seventh paid $5, the eighth paid $9, the ninth paid $12, leaving the tenth man with a bill of $52 instead of his earlier $59. Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to eat for free.But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. “I only got a dollar out of the $20,” declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth. “But he got $7!” “Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got seven times more than me!”"That’s true!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $7 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!”"Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!”The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.The next night he didn’t show up for dinner, so the nine sat down and ate without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They were $52 short!And that is how federal taxes work. The top 10% pays 70% of taxes. Any tax cut will by definition mean the top 10% gets most of the tax cuts. Anyone with an IQ of 50 or higher can figure that out. Leftists can’t. Go figure.

. HOWEVER, Woman B claimed she had never said anyihtng to A about my wife spreading the rumors and that she was simply concerned about her. She was sorry, apologized, but understood if my wife didn’t trust her as a friend. My wife was hurt, but choose to forgive woman B and move on and attempt to repair things with woman A.The next morning, woman B went to A and told her what my wife had done to her. Woman A was concerned about the accuracy of the information she was getting from B. Woman A asked her again if she was sure that what she had said at the party was true, including the party about my wife telling many different people and maliciously attempting to start the rumors. B said this was all true again, and that my wife was really upset with A and wanted to bring her down with what she said.A week later, my wife tried to talk to woman A to apologize for what was said. Woman A would not even look at my wife. She said she was done with her as a friend. She explained that woman B had come back to her to tell her she had been talking about her AGAIN, and she reiterated about the fact she had been spreading the rumors maliciously and my wife wanted to hurt woman A. None of this was true. Woman A called my wife a slew of fowl language in front of me, in front of dozens of her close friends and in front of many of my wife’s friends. She stated that she was lying because woman B had said these things to her twice, and that she wouldn’t lie.My wife is woman A’s boss. Woman A is letting this effect her work. Woman A has cut off all communication with my wife outside of work. Woman B is now completely avoiding my wife entirely as well as woman B’s husband, who is a close friend of mine.My wife forgave them both for what happened. Several weeks has passed. I have a hard time forgiving these people and wanted them to ever be back at our home. They were both very good friends of my wife’s and now she feels alone and isolated because her two best friends destroyed their friendship. I even lost a close friend. The collateral damage goes very deep, since these were mutual friends of almost everyone we know.My wife wants me to move on, but I have such a hard time with that. My wife was trying to do the biblically accurate thing to hold a fellow sister in christ accountable and her other sister in christ; who was not a new christian, but a strong one, threw it in her face. She broke her trust not once, but twice.I just think she doesn’t need to be friends with these people if this is how they treat their relationships. I don’t feel comfortable having them around my home if this is what they choose to do.What do you think?
