Annoying. Yet... Comforting

     There is a cricket hiding somewhere near my office door. It sounds like midnight near the swamp.

Frakked-Up Friday Episode 8

     Busy busy week here at work, but not so busy I can't post a quick Frakked-up video. This one is a little long, so just skim through it, but make sure you tune in at about the 7 minute mark. Good times at a Mets game.

Something to Try

     Just found a little game that for some unexplainable reason freaks people out...

Get into an elevator, then instead of turning around and looking at the door and numbers. Stay facing the back wall until the door opens. You may get some uncomfortable looks. Good stuff for entertaining yourself in those boring 30 seconds in the elevator.

Let me know how it goes.

     Seven years later. Hardly seems that long ago. It was like yesterday.

But a sartling reminder nonetheless...

Protestors = Douche bags

     Minnesota is a great state to live in. I've been to about 40 of the other states in this country and Minnesota is still my favorite overall. Sure I'm biassed, but still. It's so great that as you all know the RNC is taking place here over the week and this has understandably caused lots of turmoil and resentment - along with pride and excitement.

One thing I've always hated are protestors. They almost never make the case that they intend. Instead, nine times out of ten they make asses of themselves and come across looking like a bunch of out of touch, whacko douche bags. Remember the anti-Bush marches in '04 in NYC? Sure, everyone hates Bush. But all everyone talked about was how crazy the marchers looked and behaved. New case in point, St. Paul, Minnesota: RNC 2008.

From CNN:
"Police arrested 284 people ... St. Paul police said 130 of the 284 arrested were being held on felony charges. The rest were charged with various misdemeanors... Earlier in the day, a group of self-described anarchists threw park benches into streets and smashed windows, police said."

130 FELONIES!? What better way to protest your hatred of the Republicans than by throwing park benches through small business offices, cars and generally vandalizing city infrastructure from which you reside? Makes perfect sense to me. It is 2004 all over again. Remember the debacle with vandalism to cars and houses with Bush/Cheney signs and stickers in '04? It's happening again.

Here's a thought. Instead of smashing police cars all to hell and ruining hard working people's attempt at making an honest living, try not voting for the Republican on the ticket come November. THAT is the correct (and most effective) way of protesting. I know the intelligence is hard to muster to walk in and put a check mark next to the other name on the ballot, but give it a try. If you can manage to tie your shoes first... you fucking idiots.
