So my grandmother passed awayâ€¦ (I am not saying that to get sympathy, (but thank you), I am saying that to explain this better).
My mother calls the church that she had attended for nearly 60 years to setup a massâ€¦
The dickhead at the church says to my mother â€œMy records here show that Jennie hasnâ€™t donated to the church in nearly 10 years…â€
Are you fucking kidding me? She was married there, my grandfatherâ€™s mass was there, and oh right she went there for 60 years of her life …and all this asshole can talk about to my grieving mother is money?
I am sorry, but fuck that, and fuck Catholicism
Did I tell you what happened when my mother tried to get me baptized?
My mother asks the guy if I could be baptized soonâ€¦
The prick says to my mother â€œWhy donâ€™t we wait and see what your donations look like and then weâ€™ll talk about itâ€
….um, again, fuck that
Just for the record (and for clarity)
Yes I am venting, but this is seriously bullshit. And youâ€™d really like to try and tell me that religion is something I am missing? Sorry, but I am definitely not missing this kind of bullshit.
I realized something the other day while I was sitting in class. I answered probably close to 6 questions back to back. A friend nudged me and said â€œteacherâ€™s petâ€ and I whispered to him â€œwell then you answer the damn question.â€
This illustrates my point quite nicely in that Iâ€™ve realized that Iâ€™ve â€œgrown upâ€ a bit now that I have gone back to school. I used to be that kid, sitting in the class who knows the answer, but I donâ€™t want to be the person to raise my hand. The teacher would patiently wait for someone to answer in awkward silence until they would slowly nudge the class towards the answer they wanted (the same answer that everyone already knew).
My point is this, I am tired of wasting time, I am tired of playing stupid
or lazy, and therefore I am going to raise my hand to answer the question if no one else will instead of sitting there in an idiotic silence. If that makes me a â€œteacherâ€™s petâ€ then I donâ€™t give a damn. I see the people that I am taking classes with and realize that I am in such a difference place then these â€œkidsâ€. I am not really that much older then most of them (Iâ€™ll be 24 in April), but I feel like have a bit more maturity than most of them. Perhaps it is just me, but the â€œsitting in silence when you know the answerâ€ behavior I just described seems like a very juvenile behavior, but I admit that I could be wrong.
”…but [it was] a great night tonight. A really [great] night. But it wasn’t wasn’t complete, it wasn’t nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn’t share it with you. I couldn’t hear your voice, or laugh about it with you.

I am predicting that Twitter will become a well known verb within 3 years. I am going to start using it as a verb starting right now.
Twittervision lets you watch people Twitter in real time overlayed on a Google Map. Very cool (in the “I like to waste time” kind of way).
Jeff Han is about to change the face of computing. Not even the big boys are likely to catch him. Jeff Han and Phil Davidson shows how a multi-touch computer screen will change the way we work (and play).
This looks like it might turn into something promising though to be honest, a lot of it looks like eye candy and seems to be lacking on the functionality side of it. I guess we’ll see how this turns out.
One of the main causes for the many positional differences between layouts in various browsers is due to the default stylesheet each browser applies to give styling to certain elements. This usually involves setting default margins and padding to some elements to make them behave in a certain way.
If you’ve ever created a webpage then I am sure you’ve asked yourself this very question. In case you were curious then here is your explanation. Interesting read…
The previous versions of XHTML, XHTML 1.1 and 1.0, were made to be pretty much compatible with HTML 4.1. The problem with this was that it left a lot of presentational information in the Document Type Definition (DTD). Using the <b> tag says that you want to make a certain piece of text bold. However, the idea of XHTML is to separate content and layout. Therefore, all presentational aspects of XHTML are completely gone in the upcoming 2.0. There is no “Transitional” or “Frameset” DTD—both concepts are gone… XHTML will include no presentation, requiring it all to be defined using CSS.
I read this, and it makes me giddy. *insert nerdy snort* This is an excellent introduction to what is coming in XHTML 2.0 and how web design is going to change drastically when it arrives. Very cool stuff coming in the future.
Not your average workout: Tire flipping, jumping, sprints with a jumpstretch band, runs with kettlebells, turkish get ups with kettlebells, medicine ball throwing, kipping pullups, bear crawls, tuck sits on gymnastics rings, barbell thrusters. Real, oldschool, brutal – full body movements.
In case you don’t understand what is going on here… The newly released movie, 300 had some VERY (and that is an understatement) jacked Spartan warriors. For example:
Yes, those are real muscles. To be honest, I saw the movie and thought it had to be computer generated…that is how jacked these guys were. As it turns out, those are real muscles, and this is the workout plan that got them to that point. Part 2 of the 300 Workout is also available. Maybe this will be my little summer project…if I could end up half as jacked as these guys I’d be happy.
