Do You Still Think America's Gun Problem is Funny?

Trying to make a point, someone recently said that if guns kill, then spoons make people fat. That's hilarious.

What else if funny is that the USA has more civilian owned guns than any other country (also per capita), it leads the world in mass shootings, it also leads other high-income countries in gun homicides, and half of its citizens still care more about their guns than children being shot to death in their schools.

How US gun culture compares with the world in five charts

Most Embarrassing President Ever?

Is Trump the most embarrassing, least sensitive, biggest bulls-shitter to ever be President of the USA? Probably yes...

No, Mr. President, I don't believe you would have run into that school unarmed.

Gun Control Still Scarier than Murdered Children in USA

It seems that no amount of slain children will be sufficient to change the gun laws in the USA. The reports are that the gunman in the Florida high school bought his guns legally-even though the people who knew him say he acted aggressively and was anti-social. That reminds me of the legal gun owner who chased my car into a police department parking lot while brandishing a Glock 9mm with an extended clip and out-of-state permit. He was picked up by police and released back into the world because he told police that he didn't pull out the gun I accurately described. He's also legally on Facebook preaching his right-wing version of "patriotism" and hatred of people he believes to be less American than he is. After all, he told police that I was a "rag head" from Pakistan. No people, nothing needs to change. At least you have your guns. Never-mind some more slaughtered children.

Don't Brag About Not Getting a Flu Shot

I got a flu shot. My whole family got flu shots. But since the shot was not very effective, my son and I both got the flu anyway. That was very scary especially with my son's fever. And I have heard many people brag about not getting the flu shot... ever. And to me, that is so dumb. Because for everyone who does not get the flu shot, that opens up a hole in the fabric of society that allows the flu to get in. So, you might as well brag about being dumb and irresponsible.

Decision Makers

When the people making the decisions about what software I should use to do my job have never used any similar software, how do they make the decision? And why don't they feel the need to ask me or one of the other guys who actually does the work?

My Application is Incomplete: Like Your Religion

While filling out an online application for a technology job, I stopped when the questions about my education and experience ended and I was asked to elaborate on my Christian views and my "relationship with God." My spirituality has nothing to do with a technology job but "they" would say it has everything to do with it. I simply used the same response I received as a child when I asked church leaders why the Bible has no section dealing with the dinosaurs living on Earth. I was told I needed to have "faith." I guess that part did and still does escape me. Even at that early age I knew that either the Bible is incomplete, or God "hid" some bones in the ground just to "mess" with us...

NFL to Check Brady's Balls


NFL to Check Brady's Balls
Unassociated Press
February 1, 2018


The National Football League has said it will check Tom Brady's balls for proper inflation prior to Super Bowl LII. This after the Deflategate scandal in 2015. Though they are a great team, the New England Patriots have still been known to cheat.
