Sharing living space

Posted: May 3, 2016 in General, Opinions, WTF?

Steaming mad I read an article yesterday about a woman wrote that she lives with her boyfriend and for 10 years he (her boyfriend) has never once helped pay any bills and only a few times did he buy some groceries, she was asking for advice about if other people thought he should be helping or was she just being petty about this, here is my answer to that woman: HELL yes the guy should help, I posted that reply to the article and all of a sudden other people started booing me on their post about what I said, ok people this is just messed up! If you live together expenses should be shared that’s the right thing to do. To those other posters that thought I was a bitch for saying what I thought well you people need a bum to stay in your house, eat your food, watch your cable TV, and drink your beer and never pay a dime then come back and post what you think you bunch of ass wipes.

No soup for you

Posted: May 1, 2016 in Opinions, WTF?

1281575685People do the dumbest shit here is a good example: “A Texas lawyer upset that he wasn’t provided a cup of soup during a recent meal has notified a restaurant owner that he’ll sue if not reimbursed the $2.25 for the soup.seeking $250 in attorney fees for the time spent drafting a letter sent to the owner of Our Place Restaurant in the Fort Worth suburb of Mansfield. the soup was listed on the menu as part of a Saturday special. He says the restaurant offered no discount or substitution when it ran out The lawyer argued the menu amounts to a contract with the customer and the owner violated the terms of the contract. But the restaurateur says the menu makes clear the soup comes with a meal "while supplies last."

America has become obsessed with the freshest ingredients when it comes to food, no additives, preservative’s or growth hormones and this is all well and good if your getting the food and cooking it that day, ok let me back up a minute I can see the no growth hormones ever thing ( I believe it is making children mature prematurely)  but in a market of mass production the organic and preservative free is not practical because it does not store well for long periods of time. If you go to a fresh market daily and cook the foods you buy that day this is all well and good but not so good if your going to store or even freeze those foods, to many things can happen to that food on a microscopic level. In the competitive market of mass production companies have done what the public wants by introducing the “all natural brands” but as a result such as with the latest Blue Bell ice cream company using only the freshest ingredients is killing the company, although we all love Blue Bell ice cream the solution is to add back preservatives in order to stop harmful microscopic bacteria in the product. NOTE! this is my opinion ONLY and NOT backed up by any scientific study or evident.

Oh those dam commercials

We all have those annoying commercials, but some are just really stupid that simply grate on our nerves. Oh sure there are a few that are kind of cute and since we have to watch them are tolerable to a degree, but the commercials I am talking about lack intelligent content, the one company I am talking about today surprises me which is Geico who have in the past had the cute gecko, the newest commercial has been the Push it song, the content grates my every nerve, did Geico fire their PR staff? the company opened the door for viewers to leave for the kitchen to get snacks and bathroom breaks. I would rather watch the older commercials from this company do you agree?

Trending right now is the Duluth trading company with their cute skit type commercials and of course Farmers Insurance, with Allstate insurance coming in at third on my list of tolerable commercials. Progressive insurance has fallen to the bottom with tolerable content in their commercials.

The holidays bring back some of the worst commercials such as all those adult on the phone chat lines, that is so 10 years ago and I have to wonder if the backers of such had just been released from prison and haven’t kept up with the changing times. As always these are just my opinions and thoughts feel free to chime in your opinions.

Those intelligent brothers spending millions of dollars looking for the secrets of Oak Island believing there is hidden treasure including the Arch of the covenant must have nothing better to do with their money. First off I will say that maybe some pirate trinkets might be found, but my focus is the Arch of the covenant they believe the Knight’s Templar moved this artifact to Oak Island and hid it there, I will say this loud and clear my opinion on this: NOPE, NOTTA, NOWAY! the Arch of the covenant is the most holy of holy artifacts protected by God himself and this artifact will NEVER be found by anyone. I don’t believe the Nazi’s took it either because they NEVER would have found it to start with. God himself resided in the Arch of the covenant until the redemption of man through Jesus Christ, but do you really think that even then man could ever touch it? the residual power it would still contain would make that impossible. so why even think that the Arch of the Covenant could be taken? Pipe dreams my friends a fools errand.

 The Alliance:

The expansion of “Warlords of Draenor” must have been with the Horde in mind this time around, I played my alliance character last night and the game play was not so different from what is already in the game Example: a few mentions of the Iron horde but other wise it seemed like an expansion of the outland area called Shattrath. I found myself very bored and unfocused, but I made myself play on until I got my Draeni hunter to Level 92. I do have to admit that the alliance garrison’s are nicer than the horde garrison each player can get as a home base of operations. I won’t be mentioning game play again in the blog but I did want to touch base with my followers who do play the World of Warcraft game as I do. I rag on all kinds of stuff here so this is just another bitch I had to add to my opinions. Happy gaming all and if you have never played but would like to then maybe you should go to the Blizzard web site and give it a try get a free Battle.net account now

World of Warcraft “Warlords of Draenor

  • I have been playing the new expansion since it was released on November 11, I haven’t had time to explore every thing yet but the things I have explored kind of rub me the wrong way, in my opinion the crafting professions should be reworked I think it sucks the way it is set up Example: Fishing you catch small, regular. or enormous, ok I can live with that but….what I can’t live with is this: Fishing small fish=combine 20, regular fish=combine 10 WTF? who has all day to stand there and fish.
  • Lets move on to Mining you get regular ore then you get fragments of ore which again combine 10 to get 1 ore, the same applies to Herbs etc. there is no smelting of ore in this crafting so a professions gatherer just gets stuff and can sell at the auction house but it makes maxing those skills a very slow process. old skill level was 600 now it is 700. Since each profession uses other raw materials the prices at the auction house have always been way to high but now the prices are really way to ridiculous to even comprehend, my solution has always been to have a character each with a different profession and that way I can just email a character what they need. Lets move on:

Game Play: What a constant cluster fuck! the quest NPC’s send you in all directions and it’s hard to stay on track for the story line but you do still need to do all quest, there are bonus quest which can land you some serious exp points and gold, but I have to say this again: what a constant cluster fuck! it’s non stop fighting and can be exhausting for me mentally (same in dungeons for me) all in all I don’t mind the game play but it feels like it’s taking forever to level up, with all the fighting and side quests it feel like I should be leveling up faster. Long road to get from level 90 to 100. Hang in there gamers

 

A wild theory

Posted: June 22, 2014 in Oddball stuff, Opinions

Good morning WordPress bloggers, today I want to talk about salt, it’s killing us by the millions and yet we can’t give it up or even reduce it in our diets, why? we love the way it makes our food taste right? let me start at the very beginning of a theory I heard once then you decide how off the wall it is or not ok? I was in a restaurant one day a long time ago salting my fries the waitress had just set in front of me when a man walked up out of the blue and said your going to die if you keep eating the forbidden fruit. Ok did you catch that? he said forbidden fruit I had not ever heard salt called that but it did get my attention and kick my brain into high gear. Did you know that if you took two lab rats and fed one no salt and fed the other rat salt in it’s food then checked the red blood cells you would find that the rat fed no salt in it’s food had bigger red blood cells, bigger red blood cells makes it more difficult for oxygen rich blood to circulate through the body but most importantly of all the brain  making that rat less intelligent, dwell on this true fact long and hard and I will continue with where I am going with this. Let me side track your thoughts over to the book of Genesis in the Garden of Eden, before the forbidden fruit was eaten God walk and talked to Adam teaching him all he needed to know because Adam and Eve was as children they had to be taught how to tend the garden, how to gather food, how to survive, and how to reproduce because they just simply didn’t know these things when they was created that is all fact because it is all written down. We are made in God’s imagine and are free will beings right? being a fair and just God he did not remove things from that garden that was bad, the choice had to be there, so God told them and taught them that of the whole garden they may freely eat everything except the tree of good and evil. Was it really a tree? nope the tree is a just a simple way of explanation example not an actual tree and the apple is not an apple either, this had to be explained in terms that the people of the time could understand the forbidden fruit is salt, maybe in the form of a pillar that maybe looked like a sort of tree or maybe just some peeks sticking out of the ground but I am sure it must have been salt why? God said in the day that you eat from the tree of good and evil you shall surely die (act of disobedience) and their eyes was opened and they knew they was naked and hid from God. This we all know right?

Lets go back to the two rats in a lab one was fed no salt in it’s diet while the other rat got salt in it’s diet, the rat with no salt had bigger red blood cells making it hard to get good blood flow to the brain making that rat less intelligent, here comes the theory:  Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit and their eye’s was opened, (the rat with salt in it’s diet was smarter and it’s red blood cells was smaller and could flow to the brain easily) you eat the salt and all of a sudden oxygen rich blood rushes to the brain and the brain is now energized and more parts of the brain are awake, instant intelligent.  Did the serpent not tempt Eve saying that if they ate of it they would be like God? they had knowledge they did not have before including that they had disobeyed God by eating it. Scientific way of explanation, salt jumped started our brains.

This is all just theory but in talking with that man in that restaurant he ask me why on earth would I want to eat something that was so bad that even germs won’t live on it? I had no answer nor did I ever figure out who that man was or why he even bothered to stop by my table and start a conservation with me, he was not rude or radicle and even did not appear to be a rebel, just a kind old man who wanted to say something. An angel maybe? who knows but it did give me something to think about all these years even if that theory is off the wall it is a known fact that we are killing our self eating to much salt, our bodies do need salt but what veggies have right from the ground is ample amounts we don’t need any more so maybe we should tune our taste buds with other seasonings and herbs. Do I believe this theory? not entirely but it is food for thought, that is just something I will have to ask when I get to heaven, but I really don’t think it will be important when I get there.

Yahoo news is the only article on the Tracy Morgan crash that explains more in detail truthfully, and I say thank you for that. Other headlines read negative, for example: Feds say trucker in Morgan crash was speeding, response is truthfully yes he was, but they wanted the public to focus on that one factor, (in reality every one else was more than likely speeding too, and when traffic slowed it started a chain of events). Another example of headlines are: Drivers hours are under review in fatal turnpike crash and the last headline reads Trucker in Morgan crash hadn’t slept. I am going to insert parts of the article here then explain what I would have done and more than likely the driver did the same thing but I can’t swear to that since each driver does their own thing when it comes to multiple stop off, but a smart driver I think would do.

Before I insert a part of the article let me say that multiple stop offs NEVER go as scheduled:  “The report also detailed driver’s schedule on the day leading up to the crash, from when he left a Wal-Mart facility in Smyrna, Delaware, at about 11:30 a.m. before making stops in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Just after midnight on June 7 he left Bristol, Pennsylvania, en route to Perth Amboy, New Jersey, when the crash happened about 30 minutes into his trip.” Ok folks look at the times here he started about 11:30 a.m he made multiple stops until just after midnight, any driver with an IQ of 70 knows stop offs don’t go as planned right? the hours it took to make those stop offs was about 11 1/2 hours so IF IT WAS ME I would log 15 minutes of load or unload which ever the case is then jump in the sleeper for a cat nap, drive to next stop off and do the same thing, that way when I left for the last stop shortly after midnight I would have at least had naps in between the stops, have just enough time on hours of service to get to final stop off then log off for 10 hours of sleep at final destination. BUT if I ran out of hours of service before I got to final destination then the final stop would have to be rescheduled no ifs ands or buts, load planners hate that but hay that’s the life of a truck driver, you have to cover your ass because dispatch and load planners will throw you to the wolves. Use the hours of service to your advantage to get the rest you need and screw every one else because it’s your ass on the line not theirs. NOTE: He had logged 9 hours and 37 minutes of driving time, that is NOT enough time to make his final stop off with the minutes he had left to drive but it does show in approx 11 1/2 hours time he could have had a tiny cat nap but most importantly he should have gotten to a service plaza on the turnpike then went to bed and screw the final stop off, I would have done that just to piss dispatch and load planners off, but then that’s me right? with the hours of service on your side they dare not threaten my job because I was looking for a job when I found that one right? but companies know when they got a good safe driver so job security is a plus. I feel bad for that Wall Mart driver but he should have been watching his own ass, but the media should not give a bad impression on all truck drivers.

Last but not least the driver would have had 10 hours of sleep on his logs before starting that fatal day

In response to the findings, the Teamsters Union urged Congress not to ease laws that limit truck drivers to 60 to 70 hours of work each week. The Senate is considering a resolution that would extend the maximum to 80 hours per week. The solution from a 70 hour work week to 80 hours a week is to much, a better solution is simply pay more money for a decent living, if freight is more important than the driver and the lives of others then put your freight on a rail car then go screw yourself.
