As you listen to the podcast you can see by this photo what I was most angry about, adding phones lines without my knowledge then trying to charge me for disconnecting them.

Dam it I got to vent!

All morning long I have been trying to read the news off of the Yahoo web site but the blasted ads and redirects during the time I was reading an article has just got me pissed offblogpost, what the hell happened with ad blockers did all those internet guru’s go broke because all those suckers that was born every minute not see their web site? the internet is going backwards not forwards so I guess greed has once again taken over. What all this ads and banner ads do is bog down your browser and some ads are down right hostile and they have added the ability to show ads that you might have browsed while shopping online, now that’s scary and a bit of eves dropping on your privacy Don’t ya think????. Yes we all love shopping online and getting our stuff right at our front doors (I love it) but since we are suppose to be intelligent beings we know which online shopping we like we don’t need to be bomb barded with flashing miss leading ads, but ok a few suggested shopping web site would not be to bad if they was subtle. To sum up my bitches and grips is if your reading an article your page should not just jump over to a ad page so Yahoo you’ve gotten a bit hostile.

Good morning bloggers

Yesterday’s all day chat was a lot of fun if you missed it you can always join in next Thursday 5/12/16 Click Here for Link or if your seeing this from another social media site you will have to come here then read the post again to see the link

The day is just starting and I’m having morning coffee so who knows what the day will bring.

On another note I would like to bitch about all the rain we have been having, my yard had never completely dried up from the big flood last month making lawn mowing almost imposable without sinking the riding mower, the grass is growing wild and I can only imagine what my neighbors must be thinking because their yards are level and not many places standing water like my yard is because I have so much more land than they do, by the time the ground dries up I’ll need a brush hog instead of a riding mower.

 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

Get a grip on reality here people, when out in the woods depending on the person they are either in nature lover bliss, creeped out factor mode, or hunters paradise. The eyes see what you want them to see and creepy woods can play tricks with the vision, and I think the people are seeing bears or maybe even shadows in the branches of trees. Lets play a what if game for a moment and say there is such a creature ok? first… what if it’s a rip in dimensions and people are seeing just a glimpse of the other side does this sound possible to you? second…what if it is people with a genetic flaw that allows hair to grow all over their body and they hide from the world to avoid people’s stupidity? (there was a bearded lady in the circus…that was a genetic flaw) Even my own parents say they saw a tall hairy man wearing overall’s up at the property in the deep woods of Louisiana, my Dad said he was working on his water well pump and was knelling down fixing it when someone came up behind him and just stood there, he looked over his shoulder and saw bare ginger colored hairy feet, he turned back to support his self to get up to greet the man but when he got up and turned there was no one there, but this very hairy man was really tall and wearing overall’s so that tells me it was a human being. Genetic flaw sounds much more believable then some ape like creature roaming around with no proof to even support the theory. Hiding from society rather than shaving entire body hair makes more sense than any thing else. This is open to discussion and debate so feel free   

The Sims4 is just boring

I have been trying out the new Sims4 and find it  a mixed bag of good and bad, yes I know that for now the new release is just the base game, but it only takes about a week to just get bored with the game. Since this time around the Sims are driven my emotions not motivations I find that their mood swings are to frequent to set any kind of goals for them since they change from one minute to the next, they also have the ability to multitask which in my opinion leads to what appears to be A.D.D in human terms. I can’t tell you how many times I got annoyed when I wanted the Sim to do something and they start doing the task but quickly side track to do something else, yes I could turn free will off but then I would have to control every minute of their lives which at times I don’t want to do because I like for my Sims to form their own story line by their actions. There was way to much basic content removed in this base game so now Maxis is adding what should have been included into three installments. October brought back ghost, November brings back the swimming pools and I have forgotten what comes back in December.  Those things should have came with the base game but for some reason didn’t, I am so ready for a expansion pack or a stuff pack or something more to do and explore, if it does not come soon I was just continue playing the World of Warcraft game. Enough ranting for now it’s been fun but I gotta run C YA!

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.

Media is misprinting the facts or should I say twisting them to place all the blame on the Walmart truck driver in the tragic accident involving Tracy Morgan and his passengers on N.J. turnpike. taking a few of the lines from the article I will also explain them in simple terms so you can see what the media is doing by misleading people into thinking that the truck driver was driving to much. First line of crap from media: A criminal complaint alleged that he had not slept for more than 24 hours before the crash. Response: No where does it say he has not slept in 24 hours on his truck data, yes he was speeding that part is wrong on his part. Second line of crap from the media: Driver had been on duty for 13 hours 32 minutes at the time of the collision, a half-hour shy of the federal limit. He had logged 9 hours and 37 minutes of driving time. Response: Drivers are allowed to drive 10 then must log sleeper time for 10 hours before driving again, but can go into what is called the 14 hour rule which is a driver can log (4 hours on duty but not driving) that means any time a driver is in the seat but not driving or loading and unloading freight, dropping and hooking trailers, and 10 of driving but must not exceed 14 hours. I could be wrong on this part since I been out of trucking a few years now but my understanding of Walmart drivers was that they always run teams in the trucks, of course there could be exceptions such of shorter runs from warehouse to warehouse. In conclusion of this the driver was going 65 in a construction zone, he is wrong on that part, and secondly he hit the tour bus from behind (That is an automatic your in the wrong) no matter what the cause is. There was fatalities so I can understand the charges brought against the driver, but it does un nerve me when they once again try to show the public how terrible truck drivers are when in fact I bet they did not print all of what really happened that night. Shit can happen out there on the road at a blink of an eye and it not be any ones fault.

I edited this post today because I had left out what I was trying to point out about the media, and that is everyday people DO NOT know what the DOT rules and regulations are so when they print stuff about truck drivers even when they print the truth it sounds bad because people don’t bother to find out what rules of driving a truck driver has to follow. The public then just assumes the truck driver was the cause without knowing the true facts. When I said the second line of crap I did not mean the media was printing something false, I meant they print the truth but fail to explain in detail because they want the public to jump to conclusions. The truth of the matter is that the driver failed to control his vehicle and hit from the rear, that is automatic the driver is at fault no matter what happened or how

Ever have a person around you that no matter what the topic of conversation it is that they speak louder than every one else and act like they know more than any one else, but really just talk a bunch of shit? Is that type annoying to you? I have 2 relatives who are like that and it un nerves me to no end to be around them because they always talk over who ever is trying to talk and they just ramble on and on and yes! guess what I do next? I end up starting a argument by saying  “Will you shut the hell up!”  I’m not sorry so I won’t give a apology does this make me just as bad as them? I have 0 tolerance for stupid and yet it does seem like I lower myself by acting stupid speaking my mind, shouldn’t I be able to just walk away? and why don’t I just do that, and let the others walk away too? but NOOOOOOOOOO! my big mouth always lands me in deep shit. I put a whole new meaning to the phrase “Me and my big mouth” but hey! some one has to be the villain so I guess that’s me.
