I laugh in the face of...your mom

Information on a funny bet precedes. Read on for more information.

Ok, Emily and I are betting about which one finds a bet for homecoming. Her date is being rated for "nerd qualities." More precisly, the lack of them. Essentialy if her date is a nerd then she looses. I need to find a date. Thats it. No actual specifications about my date (inanimate objects might count, who knows), but I will try to find a real, female, not my mom date. I will of cource try to find one in our grade level that people acualy know, but if all else fails I can always try to find some desperate freshman/sophmore. Or my dog. I thought I'd start by (humerously) asking Vampi, then moving on and continuing to look before she gets a chance to say no. Unless she is Bishos alter ego, in which case I might accidently end up going with him...whoops. Read the full article.

Hypothetical Party

Okay, so I was talking to Bish and Jack, and since it's a three day weekend, we decided we have to have a party.

Now, our first choice is Sean's house. If that's not available, Bishop's parents don't mind if we total theirs.

Matt can't make Saturday. So we're planning Friday.

In sum: Sean's house Friday. Does anyone have any problem (for instance, Sean)? Read the full article.

Glochenspiel

Thats why english sucks.

Anyone ever heard this spelling "rule": 'I' Before 'E' except after 'C'. Oh right, or if there is a word that sounds like an 'A', ya know like neighbor or weigh. Oh wait, but that not true either, because of WEIRD words like WEIRD or Society, or either/neither, science, species, sovereignty, vein, feisty, seize, neighbor, kaleidoscope, sufficient, their, policies, fancied, ancient, glacier, caffeine, being, feisty, height, seismic, heist, seeing, foreign, etc. etc. etc. (I put that there three times for enphaces on how many more words go there). Essentialy, you can't call that a spelling rule anymore. If there are three exceptions, and hundreds of words that brake the rule, then how can you consider it a rule. On top of that...

English is the language with the most homo/synonyms. That means that english computer spell checkers hate us, and have a horrible time trying to truly correct our spellings. That also means that when someone trys to say something, they may (or may not), be trying to say soemthing diffrent. Who really knows. It also gives our English teachers license to make us choose more latin based words (incredible, gnarl, galloped, aroma) to "spice up" our essays and homework, rather then the germanic based words we all love so much (bad, bite, run, catch, smell). Essentialy, your better sticking to a real cut and dry language like german or spanish. Or you could stick to a really nice/romantic sounding one, like French or Italian. Pretty much if you speak English people know your an ignorant pig. The only thing you could do worse, is speak Japanese.

An Ode to the Spelling Chequer
Prays the Lord for the spelling chequerThat came with our pea sea!Mecca mistake and it puts you riteIts so easy to ewes, you sea.
I never used to no, was it e before eye?(Four sometimes its eye before e.)But now I've discovered the quay to successIt's as simple as won, too, free!

Zimbabwe

OMFG, an opposition leader is speaker of parliament in Zimbabwe! Mugabe's gotta be pissed.

The link, if you didn't already see it, is http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7580366.stm. I like the BBC, they're pretty accurate and they're not owned by a giant faceless corporate hegemon.

But OMFG, the MDC has the speaker of parliament position! of course, Zanu-PF still controls the Senate, and the Dicta -- cough, Presidency. Still, though, a move for freedom in a country wh --

Oh, two MDC MPs were arrested? Okay, a shuffle for freedom. They're not walking towards it, I guess. Hard to do walk when your legs are bound together. Maybe it's a three legged race for democracy?

My Hobby

Shooting insurgents in the balls.


Battlefield 2: The Complete Collection is one of the foremost military simulations available to young, impressionable Americans today. Featuring post-Gulf War era weaponry and vehicles, the fast-paced game forces players to disobey the direct orders of their commanding officers, get shot, and immediately blame their commanding officers.

In short, an absolutely kickass game.

Except, of course, the political situations that supposedly led to war. Seriously, guys? War for oil? The Bush Administration totally bled that plotline dry five years ago. Get more creative! Why not a war for democracy? Nobody's tried that one yet, and I can say that with a straight face because George Bush is a liar, Clinton called his "police actions", Reagan and Bush 41 gave arms to terrorists, not democratic activists, Carter was a pussy, Ford was a retard, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon were fighting to stop the spread of Communism, not spread democracy, Roosevelt - well, Roosevelt, maybe, but that was 70 years ago, before oil was a big thing - Hoover, Coolidge, and Cleveland presided over peaceful eras of economic expansion for America and poverty for the rest of the world, and Wilson was a racist.

Whew. There's my unsubstantiated attack for the month.
