I joined FaceBook. Sorry!!!!!!! I know you would like to kill me where I stand, and I don’t blame you one bit. I wanted to connect with my childhood friend that I spent grades 1 through 8 with. The only way I could see to do that was through this god damn FaceBook crap. I hate FaceBook and the moron who started it, but what is, is.
So I spent a day looking up people from my past. Now that I have found them I see no advantage to having done so. They didn’t mean a thing to me last week, so why should they be important today.
Life moves on. We have friends and we move on. Dragging up old friends seems to be a waste of time and energy because they want to talk. And there is really nothing to talk about if you think about it. They have their life and I have mine. Neither of us were involved. Yeah, you can reminisce about old times, but then what is left to be said.
Social media is a thing for lonely soles that have no life. People that need to connect to others, even if the other people don’t want to be bothered by them. If I liked you that much we would be in touch on a regular basis via telephone; letters; or in person. FaceBook is a poor substitute for contact. It is a way to have contact without actually having contact. A place for people with no life to interject stuff into other people’s lives with no aftermath.
But that is what this society has become. Internet related without ever actually having met those we talk with. Since I signed up with F.B. I have gotten a gazillion friends requests from photographers i know the names of but have never met in person. A half a gazillion requests from models I know the names of but have never met. And a couple gazillion requests from people who I have no idea who or what they do. So why would I make you a friend if I have no clue who you are? Or what you are? If I haven’t met you and really liked you, you don’t have a chance in hell.
I enjoyed talking with my childhood friend. We have not spoken for 50 some years. He looks old, but I probably do as well.
My best friend on a petrified tree, somewhere in South Dakota.
The assholes at Microsoft fucked up my computer settings. They did a major update. Don’t do it unless you have two hours to kill. Then, as always my setting were gone. My wallpaper was gone.
I don’t mind updates if they would leave the things I alone that I have set in place. These people really piss me off, and that is why I will be going to Apple next time I upgrade my computer. I have had it with Microsoft.
And as far as I can see so far, this two hour update did nothing useful. Just a way for you to use more Microsoft products.
I see more and more sites offering what they call, Free Shipping. Wayfair; Amazon Prime; Wal-Mart; some pet food company; and the list goes on and on. The American public believe they are not paying for shipping. Who do they think is paying for it? if you are not being charged a shipping cost, it has been added onto the price. You are paying for the shipping one way or another. With Amazon Prime, they are charging the seller for the shipping cost for each item. That seller is marking up the price to cover that shipping cost, which you are paying. And Amazon is making money because if you buy several of an item, it cost them less than if they shipped each item separate, thus they made money from the seller because the seller already added the cost of shipping to each item individually.
But, Americans have always believed hooey that advertising companies put out. Americans truly are dumb.
Seems 50% of the people have a religion. They are all different, and each one seems to think their’s is the only true one.
The other 50% have figured it out.
There is no God. There is no life after death. You die and you are like the mouse you caught in your trap last night. You will never be again. You were not here for the last 10 billion years. You won’t be here for the next ten billion years, or for that matter, never again. Deal with it and quit this stupid shit about another world you will be in.
I’m tired of the religious nuts who can’t deal with reality and death, so I am signing off.
What a sad piece of news reporting. Fox news report was about how one Navy Seal was killed and three other wounded in Trumps first assault on ISIS. That was the Fox news total report, with the exception of the lady news person giving a big, “Sigh!” at the end.
What Fox news didn’t say was that 14 top member of ISIS were killed in that raid.
Job Well done. Fuck you, Fox news. Trump did in a week what Obama didn’t do in eight years of fumbling about trying to appease the liberals and black voters. And he did it without killing a whole bunch of civilians in the process, like Obama did time and time again.
Chalk up another 14 points for a new world leader.
Like I have said… The guy is a moron as a person, but he knows how to get things done. Something the last five presidents couldn’t do, or wouldn’t do because they didn’t know how, or they were afraid to step on some ethnic toes for political reasons that make no sense except to further the misdirection of this Government.
I’m already predicting that he will be elected for a second term if he doesn’t burn out before then. The heart of America stand behind him. The “big city” liberals don’t carry as much power as they think they do. The heartland likes what he has planned, and his first week has shown us what we want to see.
My image is just to rub salt into someone’s wounds. All in fun, of course. We can differ and still remain friends. That is how reasonable people behave.
Damn, I’m tied of zombie movies and episodes. And American’s think Trump is stupid….
If you listen to the oral arguments from the Supreme Court one wonders why you can copyright song lyrics that talk about derogatory names of groups of people; killing police; or raping children, but you can’t trademark the name, Slants because it is derogatory.
Both the trademark program and the copyright program are Government run. Much of the Justice’s arguments were that they would be putting out data with derogatory information if they allowed a trademark with the name, Slants, but they didn’t seem to have any problem with putting out data that has song lyrics that do the same, or worse.
Seems to me the Justices want it both ways. They seem to want to limit free speech when it comes to trademarks. They actually said, We just want nice things for trademarks, because it is a Government program, and we are the Government, and we don’t want derogatory terms in trademarks. Yet their other program (copyright) allows it.
What happen to free speech?
It all boils down to, the Government wants to get rid of names, like The Washington Redskin because current social views have changed and the limp wrist liberals are now running things and want to chip away at the Constitution a tad more because they find something offensive.
I would not be a bit surprised that they begin denying copyright in the near future because of offensive things.
