if this story is true – and I have no reason to beleive that it is or it isn’t – even Bush Sr. is not all gung-ho for the war. Perhaps he’s beginning to realize the error of his son’s ways?

grrr double grr

Actually, they weren’t wrong, they were just written in a way to present completely the opposite meaning into the mind of one such as I of the one they meant.

I’m just not very bright.

Especially lately.

Every once in a while, a particular peice of ineptness and/or cluelessness comes close to pushing me over the edge.

Today’s story comes from the neighborhood radio shack.

I decide that I want to give wire-wrapping a try. I mean, what the hell, it’s quicker than soldering and you don’t burn your fingers as much, right?

So I go down to radio shack and buy some wire wrap and a wire wrap tool. I’ve never wire wrapped anything before in my life, so I look at the instructions on the back of the tool and try to follow them.

What I end up with is a broken stub of wire and a horrid mess.

I keep trying, though, and eventually I get to where i can wrap the wire around a pin, but it ends up wrapped around the tool..

At some point, I start getting a touch, um, suspicious, and instead of reading the directions, I follow common sense and do everything exactly the opposite of what the directions say.. and lo and behold, beautiful wire-wrapped joints result, every time, spin the tool, thank you, drive through.


You do NOT turn the tool clockwise! You do NOT stick the wire in from the back, you stick it in from the frount!


I mean, the directions were written in good english and all, they were just completely, utterly, totally wrong.

Is this radio shack’s idea of a joke?

Or do they maybe not want us to build anything?

Well, I always said I wasn’t smart.. ;_)

My IQ is 127, according to a cheesy online IQ test that I just took.

I think that’s not even sufficient to get me into MENSA.

I think I’m going to interpret this as proof that IQ isn’t everything, since the few people I know who were in MENSA couldn’t have done half the things I did today if their lives depended on it. 😉

Anyone who is for a war in iraq should also listen to this Interview with Scott Ritter, the cheif UN inspector and a former marine.

Everyone who is for the war should listen to this mp3 of a speech by Michael Moore on Alternative Radio.

What am I waiting for?

Tuesday, March 25th, 2003

Someone asked in my journal comments section, ‘What, you haven’t left yet? What are you waiting for?’

It’s a good question. Especially since as we all know, when a country goes down the tubes and turns into a police state, it often becomes very difficult to leave. Obviously, if I had any common sense, I’d be catching one of the lifeboats out of the sinking ship U.S.S. USA.

But I don’t have any common sense. I’ve proved that time and time again. Common sense would imply that you don’t build your own EV just because you can’t buy one – common sense would imply that you don’t write things that might annoy the powers that be – common sense says don’t rock the boat because you’re sitting in it..

Did anyone catch Michael Moore at the Oscars? (I’m sure most of you did, or have heard of it). When asked why he said the things he did, he said – and I quote – ‘Because I am an American’. Nothing else. When asked ‘That’s all’, his reply? ‘That’s a lot.’

The idea of being run out of my country by a bunch of disguisting, pathetic, lying, cheating, murdering politicos rankles me beyond belief.

I didn’t even want to be run off of my bit of sidewalk at a antiwar protest in LA – it was only a combination of the inconvenience of being arrested in another state and the fact that I was so thirsty I thought I was going to faint that caused me to leave. [Yes, that’s right, in LA the cops stated that we could not stand peacefully on the sidewalk. We weren’t blocking traffic, we weren’t breaking things – but apparently, our first amendment right to peacefully assemble is no longer valid. Another casualty of Bush’s war]

I don’t like being run off. I’m stubborn. I admit it.

So, caller, there’s your answer. The reason I haven’t left yet is because I’m stubborn and I have no common sense. Make sense?

A prayer for mechanical malfunction

May every gun involved in this stupid war jam – may every gas mask leak, every chemical weapon turn out to be less powerful than tear gas, every rocket end up a dud, every engine on every vehicle on both sides seize, every geartrain refuse to mesh.

May every smart bomb turn stupid, every carpet bomb unravel, every bunker buster end up falling on uninhabited territory.

In short – deprive both sides of their weapons, and let them fight it out by hand, if they must.

A repost of one of my friend’s posts, mirrored in case any of you missed it. It’s funny. Really.
