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
