Imbeciles can't comprehend deafness

FACT: Telephones are useless to deaf people. COMPLETELY. UTTERLY. USELESS. I know of no one with a TTY, so I don't have one. I don't pay for a service that doesn't serve me. Therefore, I have no telephone. Now, if you ever do anything that involves being involved with the phone company (say, AT&T's U-Verse and DSL) the phone company will run around like chickens with their collective noggins lopped off and go to the wrong address because they simply cannot comprehend that ANYONE on this planet has any reason NOT to have…Read more …

Top Gear

I've come to the conclusion that one of my favorite shows on TV right now does NOT originate from the United States. Instead, I've become quite fond of "Top Gear", which is produced by the BBC and rebroadcast in the US on BBCA (BBC America). The hosts are just freakin' hilarious. They get to drive some of the coolest cars in the world, and get involved in some of the goofiest, most ridiculous shenanigans possible. I would love to be "Star in a Moderately Priced Car", even though I can't drive a stick…Read more …

Survey

Survey. 1. How old were you in 1980? Eleven 2. How old were you in 1989? Eighteen 3. Were you a Toys R' Us kid? Yup. And I still am. 4. Did you watch Transformers? Of course, but I couldn't tell what they said because you just can't lip read Optimus Prime. 5. Did you see E.T. on the big screen? Yes... and I was afraid to see it because I thought it was about a floating blow torch that burned holes in people. 6. Did you own a Lite Bright? Yep. It…Read more …

Too many changes

Too many changes in my life, man. I got fired from TLN, thereby losing a job I'd held for almost 12 years. Thus, I was forced to make changes. I have to change my cable TV. I had to change my car.  I had to drop my gym membership. Who knows what other changes I'll have to make? Now, I've lost MC Web Design, the company me and Charlie ran since late 1997. 11 years of work. Unfortunately, it's so lean right now business wise, and Charlie's so busy with work and family,…Read more …

Heee-larious

This is one of the funniest things to happen in wrestling in... a LONG time... Floyd Mayweather punches a kneeling Big Show in the face, and then runs like he got scalded with hot water. Just made me crack up... I'd run to if I hit a man 3 times my size in the face like that...Read more …

Vehicular Mayhem and Other Fun Stuff

Well, my vehicle search has come to an end. I found a new vehicle. My new vehicle is... So far, I think it's brilliant. 2.3 inline 4 cylinder engine... turbo charged. 244hp, 258 lbs torque. Gas mileage should fall around 18 to 20 combined (I hope!) 2008 Mazda CX-7 AWD. It was cheaper than the Mustang, Patriot, Liberty, Nitro, and Milan. I'm going to admit to being slightly weirded out by my own decision. Basically... well... I remember my Grandpa, and I remember he did not like the Japanese. He fought them in…Read more …

My Last Newsletter, and other random thoughts

Other stuff First... I continue to try and lower my monthly bills. I wanted to switch to AT&T, but the Condo Assoc put the kibbutz on that. AT&T found that the wiring in my condo was no good, so they wanted to run a new wire into the house. The condo assoc flat out said: NO. Now I have to schedule both AT&T AND the Condo Assoc on the same day because apparently only they know how to run a cable into my house. Fo' sure. Which means I keep paying Bright House's…Read more …
