OMG! Reality Smacks MSNBC In The Head

I'm guessing someone didn't vet this guy before they let him on.

Even though the LSM is celebrating the "grass root movement" (note: not anything like the racist angry populous movement in the U.S. called the "Tea Party") that has toppled Mubarak peacefully (so far) and left nothing but a military junta in it's place with no discernible goals, parties or what the hell they are going to do next.

Watch the faces of the hosts while this guy lays out the reality of what is happening, the disjointed reaction of Obambi and his people and that most likely the whirling blades of the ventilation unit hasn't met with the waste product yet.

And All Logic Has Now Left The Building

From our cousins across the pond:

Shed owners warned wire on windows could hurt burglars

A spate of thefts in several towns and villages in Kent and Surrey over the past few months led to many householders taking action to protect their property.

Some have been warned by police that using wire mesh to reinforce shed windows was ''dangerous’’ and could lead to criminals claiming compensation if they ''hurt themselves’’.

Trespassing and burglary don't factor in. You are held accountable for some asshat cutting his hand trying to pry off the wire mesh from your shed so he can take your property.

Super Bowl Sunday

At the end of December, I bought a new 47" HDTV and I was jazzed that I was going to be able to watch the Super Bowl with a huge screen and surround sound...Up until about 5 days ago when it dawned on me I'm working days that weekend.

I get to sit in my crappy office with a 13" POS TV with lousy speakers having to scoot in and out to deal with the facility.

Sometimes life just sucks.

A Dear Old Friend Retires (Updated)

After 8 years of dedicated service and support, an old friend is finally being put out to pasture. He sheltered me from heat and inclement weather. Let me know when something was going to whack my head unexpectedly. He's been run over by vehicles and skittered across the ground in sudden gust of wind. He and I have taken a lot of verbal abuse over our dedication to each other. I will miss him.

We stuck together longer than we should have, but it is hard to let go of a relationship that has, over the years made us just fit.

Now I have the "new guy", he looks just like my old friend did all those years ago, but we don't have the familiar comfort that existed before. At least not yet. Perhaps in a year or so we will find that ease of fit.

Update: Funny, but I was just on my Facebook page and realized my avatar is a picture from right after I first started working with my friend.
