Yahoo! News - Study: Birth Control Pill Doesn't Cause Weight Gain: "Contrary to popular belief, the birth control pill does not cause most women to gain weight, U.S. and Dutch researchers said on Friday. "

> Women will still claim this as the reason that they gain weight.

Tongue Tied -- "The head of an Atlanta-based political action committee says the term “illegal immigrant” is as offensive a slur to Latinos that the n-word is the African-Americans"

> Tongue tied is full of graet stories this morning. But they are pissing me off! How the hell can "illegal immigrant" be compared to "nigger" ? Or as they say "The N word".

As tongue tied says, why don't we just call them "esteemed guests". OMFG I would really like to smack these "political action" bitches around.

Stop the madness!

Tongue Tied: "She said concepts related to evolution -- including natural selection, adaptation and mutation -- would still be in the curriculum. Instead, the concept of evolution will be referred to as 'biological changes over time.'

> This crap has got to end. Instead of calling it Evolution they will call it "biological changes over time". Which by definition is EVOLUTION. Sigh.

Awsome!.

Tongue Tied -- "Officials at a school district in Tennessee have bucked the national trend and officially renamed their mid-winter break “Christmas vacation,” reports the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

The board of Shelby County schools didn’t say much about it, but it unanimously approved the change to the 2004-2005 school calendar. Board member Joe Clayton, who proposed the move, said, "This is Christmas break. I get offended when I see that pushed to the background."

A couple of local non-Christians described themselves as aghast, and the ACLU was apoplectic.

"They're now on record as being totally insensitive to the religious diversity in the community," said Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee."

Commute.

So, I thought that when I moved my commute would go to hell. It did, sort of, but not quite as fully as I expected. Last night I got last in little Saigon and then Korea town. As I was riding through these two areas I thought about how nice it would be to have "white people town" and "black people town". Maybe even "little florence" or "little Berlin".

So anyway, It took me 45min to get home last night. 14miles. Fg! This morning it took me a total of 15min to get to work. 14miles. Awsome! Funny how traffic works.

Yahoo! News - Arsenic Levels in Chicken Higher Than Expected

We are screwed. Toxins in everything we eat. Mercury in our fish. Parasites in our meat. Arsenic in our poulty. Molds in our processed breads (aflatoxins). I'm going to have to start raising my own animals for slaughter!

"Most people do not eat amounts of chicken that would result in excessive arsenic exposure,"

> OMFG! ANY arsenic exposure is TOO MUCH exposure. CRAP.


"Arsenic has been linked to an increased risk of several health problems, including bladder and lung cancer, heart disease, diabetes and birth defects. The chemical naturally occurs in groundwater.

> No surprise here

"Arsenic is also found in some antibiotics approved for use in animals, so Lasky's team measured average arsenic concentrations in meat and poultry in the U.S. from 1994 to 2000. During that period, arsenic levels were three to four times higher in young chickens than in other poultry or animals. "

I hate moving.

Ok so I'm all finished moving. You know, at first glance it just didnt' seem like we had alot of sh|t. In fact if you check my earlier blogs you will see that the living room was packed in about 30min. The living room wasn't the problem. The bedroom, the bathroom and the kitchen were spewing boxes like a Peter North video. Non stop. Where did all this crap come from?

Long story short, at 2am last night, with the last truckload of C R A P, I concluded that we have too much CRAAAPPP. I can't tell if it's my crap or her crap but it's definitely crap. I'm exhausted, hungry, cranky, and not looking forward to organizing or unpacking.

Because I'm shipping out in 39 days we had to move from a 1bed apartment into a BEDROOM...at her mom's! Ugh.

What a waste of time! Yesterday I went to court to pay for a traffic violation. No, I wasn't speeding. No I wasn't running from the cops. No I wasn't doing a 100mph wheelie down the 405fwy. Nothing as glamorous as that. I was cited for not having a license plate on my motorcycle. This is of course after I was cited for not having a rear red-reflector. Don't these officers have real crime to be preventing?

While I was at county A's superior court, they informed me that County B had an outstanding citation with a 1098.00 fee. Wow. I ask them what it's for and how to take care of it. They tell me they don't know and that I have to go to County B's superior court to find out. County B's court is 40 miles away. So I call up County B's court and I am put on hold for 30 minutes. Who the fg has time for this?

Today I went to County B's superior courthouse only to be told I need to pay the citation or go before a judge. No, really?? What I have failed to mention to you all is that this citation is from Aug 2002. Yea. Not only that, but it was never on the court records or DMV records until YESTERDAY. Yep. How do I know? Glad you asked. I had just been in court in Oct 2003 because of my rear red-reflector ticket AND "signals not 9" apart" citation. Yes I fought bravely, I fought hard. I proved my case. I even illustrated the legality of my lights with the CHP vehicle codebook. But somehow I lost the case. The local officer had his local PD office fax him some local codes that neither I or the Judge was aware of. SO the judge reduced the fine to 0.00 but still convicted me. Sigh. So back to the point. The court clerks normally notify you of any/all pending citations. The 2002 Citation was never mentioned. It was also never mentioned in Feb 2003 when I paid my registration and renewed my license. I think it's B$ but who am I to argue with the big bad court? I apparently, cannot win.

What is this super secret mystery citation? IT was an expired registration citation. However, I sold the vehicle before I had to register it and the bank handled everything for me. Hmm. Yet, it's just now showing up on the court records.

So, County B is asking me if I want to pay or go before a judge. I choose judge. Maybe he can reduce my fine or be so kind as to dismiss the case. Considering I have 41 days until I ship off to Basic Training, I really don't think I have time for this crap. Oh, and they also ask if I want to take care of my other pending citation. By this time you must think I'm a raging criminal loose on the streets, terrorizing the general populace. This pending citation is for crossing a double yellow line while "sharing" lanes. Which is legal where I am. I guess my wheels crossed the double yellow, which isn't always easy to tell when you are riding. So I was cited.

What's interesting is that County A couldn't help me with County B's citation, but County B was more tha happy to accomodate me with County A's citation. WTF?

I was also warned that my license will be suspended if no action is taken. So why wasn't I told about this back in Aug of 2002 , or Feb 2003, or Oct 2003, or dec 2003 and only notified just yesterday Jan 2004??

I hate court. I hate the local justic system. What a waste of time and energy.

Poland, our new ally.

This is a really great article. If you have the chance I suggest you read the whole thing.

MSNBC - For Poles, the choice was easy: "Poland is in control of a large chunk of Iraq, becoming the third country after the U.S. and Britain to accept official responsibility as an occupying force."

> These guys really are great. During the war they sent their own special forces soldiers in to do some dirty work, while keeping it very quiet on the homefront. However, they openly and staunchly supported the U.S. Thanks Poland!

"The Polish political class sees the country's future as resting on two pillars: on a close relationship with the U.S. and the [EU's] Nice treaty, which guarantees Poland almost the same voice in European affairs as France or Germany," says Kai Olaf Lang, a specialist on Central and Eastern Europe at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs. "Poles view the U.S. as the only realistic guarantee against something go wrong in Russia. The Nice treaty, on the other hand, as their way of preventing Germany and France from controlling Europe."

> Once again, Poland is thinking with their heads and not with their... hearts. Like France. France is gay. Did I say gay? Sorry. I mean really gay. I don't necessarily think everyone in France is gay, but I think most of them are. I especially believe that French govt sucks the big one, if you know what I mean.

Poland on the other hand, is not gay.

and finally:

"also the feeling that in security policy, Europe still is a promise. The U.S. is reality.”

Opinion.

OpinionJournal - Peggy Noonan: "Gen. Clark gives off the vibrations of a man who has no real beliefs save one: Wes Clark should be president. The rest--the actual meaning of his candidacy--he seems to be making up as he goes along. It seems a candidacy void of purpose beyond meeting the candidate's hunger. He is passionately for the war until he announces for the Democratic nomination facing an antiwar base, at which point he becomes passionately antiwar. "

> LOL. I couldn't agree more.

> I was waiting for this to appear on the web where I Could reach it easily. This makes me sick. Screw the little lazy pricks! If they feel bad for not getting on Honor Role, maybe they should stop futzing around and start studying. fg!

"After a couple of parents complained that their children might be ridiculed for not making the list, lawyers for the school district said releasing the honor rolls might violate privacy laws."

> These parents need to be quietly removed from society. I'm willing to bet all my candy that they are liberals. I wonder, is it that the parents are worried the kids will be embarrassed, or is it that the parents are embarrassed that their kids are lazy incompetent fools?

Wow! So much good stuff out there today. I support this article and the ideas behind it. I have done quite a few of my own experiments regarding the food I eat and the way I feel emotionally and physically.

CBS News | Slave Reparations Case Dismissed | January 26, 2004�14:36:37: "A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit brought by descendants of slaves against corporations they say profited from slavery, saying the plaintiffs had established no clear link to the companies they targeted. "

I like this. I think all black , oops! I meant "African-American"people who want money because their so-called ancestors might have been enslaved should fall out a window, or something similar. Instead of trying to get rich off their so-called ancestor's and the hard work they obviously did, maybe they should try educating themselves or the general public and putting more energy into productivity and positive ideas.

Undecided.

A push for Arabic classes: "Arabic is considered one of the most difficult languages for English speakers to learn, but it is increasingly essential for national security and global awareness, said Elizabeth Webb, the state's coordinator for foreign language education."

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I think learning other languages is essential, however I am not sure about the motives on this one.

Also, I believe we should teach kids english before any other language, and based on what I have seen and the kids I have talked to... we are failing. Ebonics doesn't count as either english or a second language. FOO!

Lame.

Yahoo! News - U.S. Army Probes Fatal Shooting of Iraqi Family: "'At checkpoints, during raids, or after roadside attacks, edgy U.S. soldiers have resorted to lethal force with distressing speed,' the human rights group wrote.

> Of course our soldiers are edgy. They get attacked everyday! Not just attacked with rocks, or hand guns. They are attacked with bombs, RPG's and fully automatic weapons.

'Troops also have not been adequately equipped with non-lethal or less lethal equipment.' "

> WTf is this about? So our soldiers should be required to use non-lethal force in the face of lethal force? Part of the problem in Iraq is that it's difficult to decipher between a potential lethal attack and a no attack at all. A car runs a checkpoint and blows up. Poof lots of people are dead. Another car runs a checkpoint and poof, an Iraqi family is dead. In such a scenario I believe the Iraqi driving that vehicle is at fault for not adhering to the posted rules and regulations that are meant to keep everyone safe.

You have visited 22 states or 43% of the country.


create your own visited states map

I didn't include the places where I have only been to the airport, I don't think that really counts...would bring me up to 49% though...damn, still shy of 50%. Anyhow, not SO bad for my age and background. I DO need to get to work on visiting more places though. Hopefully I can click a few more boxes after this summer. Need to work on filling out the Eastern Seaboard and the south a little bit!
