Are you in for a facinating swashbuckler? If so check out Gus Openshaw's whale killing Journal. It has to be a story.......or is it?

I got this off of TFsterns site(link on side bar)

“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor -- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed byacknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."

George Washington

I told my wife and we both got a laugh out of this one

I was going through my visitor links and I ran across this little search which lead to a link in my archives about the human condition.

I am pretty sure that that wasn't what they were looking for.

Life is just a Demolition Derby

Something that rings in my ears. My sister sent me an e-mail with this little ditty.

Oh the pranks

I am trying to imagine a guy sitting down on a toilet seat that had something wet on it and staying there long enough to have this happen.

from the Jamaica Gleaner

"There was such a case outside of college. In fact, it supposedly happened in Home Depot, the handyman's (or woman's) store. Bob Dougherty sued Home Depot last month claiming a prank left him glued to a toilet seat. He alleges that paramedics unbolted the toilet seat, which separated from his skin, leaving abrasions. Dougherty buttressed his case by claiming he suffered pain, humiliation and financial loss. He wants US$3 million from Home Depot. However, a witness has come forward to say that Dougherty had made a similar claim more than a year ago in the town where they both live. Dougherty's lawyer has rebutted the accusation."

Open trackbacks

NZ Bear is toying with his system of ratings and has discovered opposition in the blogosphere. I wonder why? I am currently trying to get my open trackback stuff up and running but I must profess a lack of understanding which is definately slowing me down but I know that with perseverance I shall have it.

I left a comment at Stop the ACLU that I am proud of(I hate the word proud) but you should read the rest, also Samantha Burns who has her OTB working and a nice article on the issue as well.

The problem with not counting trackbacks is also that TTLB will not know if any other bloggers are up and coming and it does open a door for a competing blog rating system. There have always been people who figure out how to cheat systems. And no matter what TTLB does people will figure out ways around those efforts . If NZ works too hard at being fair he will end up just making arbitrary decisions on who he likes and doesn't like or at least be giving the appearancee of judging and the blogosphere is not going to like that and vote with their electronic feet and go elsewhere.
One of the ways that I acquired some attention was to go to a lot of sites and make comments. That is how I got my highest rating of adorable rodent(correction Marauding Marsupial) somewhere in the 4000 to 4500 range. Which I have to profess surprise and almost a total lack of understanding at how this stuff really works, but never the less.

I have also noticed that TTLB has some problem with their system because I have 8 or nine links with people who are definitelyly respectable and quite high in their rankings but they are not listed which is giving me a snot rating of blah blah. I was excited and looking forward to the challenge of figuring out ways to get to the next level when this crap started(waaaaaa).

Even so I think it is time for other raters to compete.

The Human Condition

Is often determined by circumstances or chance or God if you preferr (which is what I say), which I shall label as human circumstance.

I shall describe these events with an event which took place in my life and a moral attached.

When I was in my twenties I had an enormous colon (still have) and consequently left enormous piles, if you know what I mean. Well on one particular day I descided to flush before I was finished. A few seconds later I felt something very cold and wet on my bottom that for a second of hesitation and then from suprised realization I lept from the commode. Egads crap water has touched my butt. IT's the BLOB ahhhhhh! Now it's running out of the pot and coming after me ieeeeee!

The moral of the story: Wait until your done to flush.
