I hate this clock.

I'd just like to take a minute here to say that I hate this clock. Out of all the gimmicks out there for people to put on their blogs, this has got to be the stupidest. I mean, come on a freaking clock? You're really going to go through all the hassle involved, and suffer a slightly slower load time just to tell me what time it is? I'll tell you what time it is. It's time to take that stupid fucking clock off your site, and replace it with something useful, like a link to free porn.

I hate my coworkers.

This was the inspiration for this post.

I work with two of the most annoying people on the planet. One is this redneck bitch who asks the same questions every day about ten thousand times, no matter how many times I explain something. She smells like she baths in an ashtray, and her retirement plan is to have her fat little daughter hit it big in Hollywood. Her daughter will never make it in Hollywood, because she has a bad personality and she gets lice all the time because they live in a filthy trailer.

This stupid bitch will leave a 3 minute message on someone's answering machine, and if the machine cuts her off, she'll call back to finish leaving the message. Then when she gets off the phone with someone, she pokes her ugly head out of her cubicle and repeats the entire conversation to everyone in the room.

Right across from her sits this massive tub of lard who complains about everything all day long. She eats at least two big nasty burgers from this fast food joint across the street every day, and she LICKS them. She LICKS her freaking hamburgers! It's one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen.

Someone took this fat bitch on a free trip to Las Vegas, and she complained the whole time. She didn't like the buffets because it was too difficult to get her fat ass out of her chair. She hardly left her hotel room the whole trip.

She said she doesn't watch any TV shows or movies that have children in them. She also said her son talked her into buying a 3000-dollar home theater system, but it was too complicated, so it's sitting in a storage room. I offered to buy it, and she didn't want to sell it because she "might want it some day." Then she has the nerve to complain about how poor she is all the time. To show how poor she is yesterday she ate a giant can of green beans mixed with potatoes for lunch. It made me want to vomit.

No one likes either one of these two morons, so they talk back and forth at each other. They sit there and discus their idiotic theories about every thing all day long, and I just want to kill them.

It’s not censorship stupid

As many of you know, this site was deleted from the Blog Explosion rotation for offensive content. I'm not the only site that has been kicked off, but I think I took it better than many of the others.

This blog was so angry that it decided to start a boycott of BE. I found the boycott so ridiculous that I couldn't resist leaving a comment. I liked my comment so much that I felt I had to share it with my own readers. So here's what I wrote...

I think your boycott is stupid. I have 3 blogs. One was banned after an offensive post. Another was rejected outright for excessive profanity. The third was only accepted because it's just a lame photoblog. My sites were rejected, and I wish that they hadn't been, but I understand the reason they were. You have every right to launch a boycott, but I think it's stupid, and here's why.

Censorship is when someone prevents you from expressing yourself. No one has prevented you from expressing yourself. BE is a business, and they have decided that your content is not appropriate for their forum. That is their opinion, and they are entitled to it.

As you stated, BE tells you up front that they will not tolerate "offensive" content. Then you complain that they are the ones who define "offensive." Who else did you think was going to define it? Do you think that you should be able to decide for them? You complain that they "make it up as they go", but what else do you expect? BE hasn't been around that long, and they haven't had time to develop any such extensive guidelines.

You say your boycott is for "everyone who is concerned about free speech and maintaining the right to blog what we want." Yet no one has taken away your right to blog. Your blog is still here, it's just not listed on BE. In essence you are calling for the removal of BE's right to choose which blogs it includes in it's listings.

You are angry that BE allows sites that are full of advertisements and links. So what you are saying is that the types of sites you don't like should be banned. In other words, it's only censorship when it happens to you. Besides, BE does what they can to get rid of these sites. I rarely, if ever, see one when surfing through the listings.

You say the only benefit of BE is an artificially inflated hit count. If it is so useless, then why are you so upset that your site was banned? If it were useless, people would decide not to use it on their own without a boycott.

I think this is just a case of sour grapes. You liked BE just fine when you were using it, but when they took away your access to all that traffic you decided that it was crap to begin with.

Ohio: Hard on gays, soft on child molesters.

Man, 86, sentenced in molestation case

In regards to the dirty old man just found guilty of buggering a young boy, Judge Edward O'Farrell had this to say:
"It's wrong - flat out. The effect it's had on this youngster is catastrophic. That's the almost unforgivable thing you've done. This youngster has suffered terribly because of you satisfying your sexual appetite."
After saying something like this, you'd expect the judge to hand down a good sentence, like 6 billion years in prison, or an evening with Dr, Phil. Instead Judge O'Farrell let the guy walk with 4 months in the county jail. If only the pervert, Rockwell S. Brank of 1788 Wainwright Rd, Wainwright Ohio, had a few illegal drugs in his back pocket, while little Johnny Jailbait was in his front pocket, he would have been locked away for life.

It’s over, now shut up.

Ok, the election is over, now I want everyone to shut the fuck up. I'm sick and tired of hearing "Bush is evil!" and "Kerry wants to kill babies!" and "Ralph Nader raped my dog!" (Ok, so that one never gets old.) But seriously, shut the fuck up. It's over, so get over it.

The Republicans think they have found the support they need to impose their religious agenda, which they don't. The Democrats are still trying to find some evidence that Bush cheated, because they can't seem to understand how anyone could disagree with their "progressive" ideals. And I'm trying to find good a way to carve out my eardrums with a spoon, so I don't have to listen to it anymore.
