Isn’t there a law against this?

I’ve become the target of character assassination.

I created the alias MrWonton years upon years ago, and at the time, I was the only one. At the time ICQ (I still remember my number, 6686654) reigned supreme in the IM world. Then came AOL Instant Messenger. It took me a long time to make the switch, but I finally did, only to discover, to my horror, that someone else had taken the name MrWonton. Oh well, I just replaced the o’s with zeros and wrote it off.

Over the years, more than a few of my friends have at one point accidentally began talking to the other MrWonton on AIM. Without fail, every female who has done this has been hit on, and has come to me to figure out whats going on (this happened to a friend of mine who is a lesbian who was particularly confused). While this has been an annoyance, I took comfort in the fact that, at least according to the most cursory google search, we ran in different circles… that is, until today.

Mostly out of curiosity for where this site would pop up on the web, I searched for my pseudonym on google. After this site and some random /. article I’ve commented on was something I’d never seen before. Something called “Conservative Punk Forum.” From what I’d seen in the past, the other MrWonton was much more securely interested in getting some ass from a random chick on the internet than he was in politics, and I knew I hadn’t suddenly become interested in starting flame wars on conservative forums, so naturally my interests were piqued.

What I found was something I hoped would never happen: another MrWonton had entered the world, and he was an annoying 15 year old conservative! Here’s a gem from the imposter: “I may be 15 but I know more about politics than the average 50 year old.” Oh ho! His modesty overwhelms me. But wait, theres more! Check out this insight: “Teachers will always be mainly Liberals because Democrats are so obsessed with pleasing teacher’s unions.” Ahhh yes. Of course. I wondered why the teachers were liberals. I should have known that somehow it was due to the democrats’ obsession with pleasing teacher unions? Excuse me while I digest the tripe from this obvious doctiloquent.

The possible character assassinating repercussions of this unfortunate name collision almost entice me into switching to an alternate name, and I would had I not developed this site and had so long to grow attached. On the positive side, I probably don’t have to worry about him hitting on my friends, as I like to think they can differentiate my occasionally witty banter from his obviously pompous ass-hattery.

Alright, that rant aside, I plan on soon converting the layout of this site into standards compliant CSS. For those of you unfortunate enough to be using Internet Explorer (not that the new layout will necessarily not function relatively correctly for you), I’d recommend making the switch.

National Memory Screening DayFree, confidential memory screenings for anyone concerned about memory loss and early Alzheimer’s disease detection and intervention, sponsored by Visiting Angels in cooperation with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.WHEN:Tuesday November 13 2012Noon – 4pmWHERE:Avalon Missionary Church. 1212 Lower Huntington Rd. Fort Wayne IN 46819INFO:National Memory Screening Day is an annual initiative of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA). Visiting Angels is proud to be a partner in this important first step in finding out if someone has a memory problem, and in helping patients and families become aware of the resources and assistance that is available.While a memory screening is not a substitute for a consultation with a physician, it can help to determine whether additional testing is warranted. With as many as 5.1 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, and many more with mild cognitive impairment and dementia, early detection and intervention can be critical to making informed decisions for greater health and quality of life.For more information on memory screening and resources to assist with ageing in place, cognitive impairment, mild dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease, contact Visiting Angels at 260-482-CARE (2273).

 ( 2012.02.21 01:38 ) : Als Gründer, Selbständiger, Freiberufler und Unternehmer können Sie bei Versicherungs-Beiträgen richtig Geld sparen. Existenzgründer können bei vielen Gesellschaften bis zu 50% Rabatt im ersten Firmenjahr erhalten – nachfragen lohnt sich also. Als Patient mit einer Privaten Krankenversicherung lassen sich bspw. locker bis zu mehrer hundert Euro im Monat einsparen und Sie verbessern auch noch Ihren Status in der Arztpraxis oder im Krankenhaus, da Sie nicht weiter dem Leistungskatalog der gesetzlichen Krankenversicherung unterliegen. Aber auch bei Berufsunfähigkeit, Unfall oder der Absicherung Ihrer Rente (Rürup) lohnt sich immer ein Versicherungsvergleich mehrerer Gesellschaften. Auch sollten Sie die Kosten der Absicherung Ihres Unternehmens durch Betriebshaftpflicht-, Glas-, Rechtsschutz-, KFZ- und Inhalte-Versicherung im Griff haben. Vergleichen Sie daher kostenlos und testen Sie, wie hoch Ihr Einsparungspotential bei gleichen oder besseren Leistungen ist! Mehr als 30 Gesellschaften mit über 2.500 Tarifvarianten werden in den kostenlosen Vergleichen von den Partnern von jetzt-praemien-senken.de einbezogen.

I am currently fishniing up my BA in Child Development and Family Studies and thus far I have only work with children from 2 weeks to adolescent while helping support their families. The Physician that I would want to work under is an Obstetrics (OB) because they are in direct contact with pregnant women and their children during pregnancy. I would choose this particular specialty for a variety of reason such as having the opportunity to see individuals become parent for the first time, seeing how much love is surrounded in the process, being there to help the mothers while there in a vulnerable state. One of my main reasons is because I think that the whole birthing process is fascinating and to be able to be a part of family’s lives while going through this process, I imagine to be extremely rewarding.A of physician specialty that I would least want to work with would be a psychiatrist. Although I believe that psychiatrist do some spectacular work and help a lot of people through difficult situations I personally believe that this job would be to emotionally draining and overwhelming for me. This makes me question whether or not I would be able to handle it. When I set out to do a job my goal is to do the best that I can and I don’t feel that I could successfully do this job to the best of my ability.
