Well all I can say is I like dark meat best.

Also my hair is dark...well most of it...some if it is turning gray (not quite white).

And the seat in my jeep are dark also.

I also love sleeping in the dark.

I just don't like driving to and from work in the dark and not getting to see the sunshine, also deer like to run out in front me and I really don't want to hit one and total my jeep.  :(

preparing for a job interview in a cool world famous tech company.

also, it recently turned out that i am homophobic and racist, and it doesn't bother me.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

Guide to not being bothered

Step 1. Are you bothered?
(If yes continue, if no leave)

Step 2. Buy 1 alcohol

Step 3. Drink 1 alcohol
(Are you still bothered? If so repeat steps 2->3)

Step 4. Not be bothered anymore.

There's a lady handing out letters to children whom she thinks are 'obese' telling them that and that they do not need any candy.




Quote
FARGO, ND (KVLY/KXJB/CNN) - A woman has decided to take childhood obesity into her own hands with a letter she plans to hand out to children she said she believes are "moderately obese."
"I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight," a woman only known as Cheryl said Tuesday. "I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just because all the other kids are doing it."
She emailed the letter after calling in this morning to radio station Y94.
"They were chatting today and got a call from Cheryl out of the blue who really wanted to voice her opinion about obesity, and that it really takes an entire community to solve the obesity challenge," JT, Y94 program and music director, said.
"I'm contributing to their health problems, and really, their kids are everybody's kids," Cheryl said. "It's a whole village."   
Dr. Katie Gordon, North Dakota State University assistant professor of clinical psychology, studies eating disorders and said that children and adolescents in particular are very conscious of fitting in with peers. She said the letter might hurt more than help.
"It's just that kind of thing that for some kids, if they're vulnerable, might trigger major problems," she said.
Residents spoke out about the letter.
"Here, you get candy. You get a letter. Like that kid hasn't suffered enough?" Julia Roland said.
"I would say that it's nobody's business, really," Jesse Lehto said.
"This is more of an issue that parents should be working with kids on," Kent Wild said. "It seems inappropriate to me."
Gordon said it's important to remember that one's appearance does not necessarily reflect whether or not a person has healthy eating and exercising habits.

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I lost one of the driver's for my VSonic VC02's.  ****ing pissed.  Bought the headphones for $65 shipped from Amazon.  The drivers would fall out everytime I took them out of my bag and I had to walk around like an idiot looking for them on the ground.  Today after one of my classes one of them fell out, went back to look for it, couldn't find it.  So annoyed right now.

I'm bothered by politics and the constant "us vs. them" mindset that people have to hold even about the most stupid things =/
