Energy drinks

I am moving soon so I won't be able to post anything for a week or more.

I am tired. "Take an energy drink" someone says. Ok, lets see what we have in the snack fund... Vault. It says "drinks like a soda kicks like an energy drink" Ok sounds good. What does it have in it?
The ONLY energy component it has in it is caffine!! Well maybe it has a lot of caffine? The offical coke website says it has 47mg of caffine (mountain dew has 55mg) What a rip!!!

Also what ever happened to surge?!?! I loved that drink!

Things can be bad all by themselves!!

I was installing some acutely stubborn speakers in a car yesterday and getting kind of mad at them. I was told "Well at least it isn't the end of the world".

Why does do you have to compare something bad to the worst possible scenario in the world?!?!?

"Well you are quickly dying of cancer, Mr Johnson but at least it isn't an excruciating flesh eating bacteria that eats you from the inside out that you contracted from your wife got when she cheated on you with the entire local elderly checkers team last week."

"Wow thank you doc for putting it in perspective, I feel tons better about dying of cancer"

Yeah right...

Just... stuff

Well I got 2.5 months in the air force and I am still looking for a job in Millington/Memphis, TN as a computer tech or an video/audio electronic tech.

Other than that life is stressful.

What is up with Israel bombing the crap out of Beirut airport? We are in World War III already, it is just a bunch of extremist groups acting on their own, all over the world! I am already missing the old wars in which there was an actual army and targets, not hit and run bombers that camouflage themselves as civilians.

Here is more on the moronic Steeler's quarterback who nearly died because he wasn't wearing a motorcycle helmet. Here is a nice quote "And unfortunately I happened to not have it on that day because I forgot it in the basement." Yeah, I just happened to forget my helmet for one day because it was packed in storage too... Dumbass. I don't want any stupid arguments like "what if his basement was a room?" He is the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback!!! Does he not have enough room in his mansion that he needed to turn his dank basement into a room?!?!?

Take it back!!

There is a big scare going around lately and it is identity theft. People get a hold of enough personal information then screw up your life. They do many things such as apply for credit cards which they quickly max out. After the aftermath is done and you figure out what is going on, you have a ton of work and possibly lawyer fees to get your credit history back the way it was (if you even can). But I pose this question. Has there ever been an identity so poor that the scammer themselves couldn't do squat? A person who has already screwed themselves for 7 years of credit history probation (we all know at least 1)!! It is funny to think about that. The scammer would call up a credit card company to get free plastic money and the customer service person would practicaly laugh in their face!!

The latest phone spam

I have seriously had about 13 of Type "A" phone calls and about 8 of Type "B" calls

"A" is the phone call that comes from your credit card companies wanting to know if you want insurance from theft, accident, dismemberment, spontaneous combustion, or getting beaten up by a large comical banana. Oh, did I mention it is free for the 1st month and I still don't want it!! Stop calling!!

"B" is if I want to refinance my house. Do some research!! I JUST BOUGHT IT!! I do not qualify for any such loan!! Stop going down a list of every house in america and asking them if they want a loan!!

end rant
