Just Some Thoughts

It's been a little while since I've posted so I'm correcting that.  There hasn't been anything that's been immediately pissing me off lately.  Just had a lot on my plate so I'm gonna share some short thoughts, and some congratulations.

  • With all the fires and drought conditions that have been happening in some parts of the country, and all the floods and such happening in another part of the country, do you think there's a genius or engineer or two that could put their heads together to maybe kill two birds with one stone on those problems?  It makes sense to take an overabundance of something from one area and use it to help out another area that's got very little of it.  Come on, someone.  Hell...let's start a fucking bucket line or something. 
  • Tying in with the first bullet, if it's so fucking dry that there are wild fires springing up all over, then it's probably too dry for your campfire (particularly if you don't know how to properly build one) and for you to just be flicking your cigarette out the window.  Put that son of a bitch out first.  Seriously.  It's not that damned hard.  Ya lazy hump. Same goes for you folks on the ATVs.  Stay out of areas with a lot of underbrush, your exhaust is hot enough to ignite dried grasses.
  • Congratulations and good job to New York!  Gay marriage is finally completely legal there, and there's no reason it shouldn't have been in the first place.  Gay people are just as human as anyone else, there's no reason that they should be denied rights just because their lifestyle is different, and some tight-assed people don't approve.  I don't approve of a bolt through the cock, but I'm not gonna tell someone they don't get medical treatment because they have one.  
  • And finally, congratulations to me! I have officially been accepted into grad school and I can barely contain my glee.   I can't wait to start in the fall. I'm excited to get back into school and get started with a new chapter of my life.


  1. Congrats to you!!! I'm so happy for you!
    I've been saying for YEARS now there has to be a way to build some sort of canal, irrigation system, or hell just suck it up into a tank or airplane and bring the water to the dry places. It seriously can not be THAT hard! Expensive? Maybe in the beginning but it'd pay for itself over time with less flooding, less fires, etc. Maybe get insurance companies to help pay for it, since it'll save them some $$ in the long run too.

  2. You're entirely right. There's no reason at all that someone in this country hasn't figured out a solution to this problem. I mean, flood waters may not be potable, but surely we can use them to irrigate crops or something. People usually wash their produce before they eat it anyway, so I don't really see the harm. If that's too much, we should at least be able to use those waters for helping with drought conditions, fires, etc. It would pay for itself in the long haul because if you think about how much money it's going to cost to compensate people for their homes, their land, etc. not to mention restoring forests and everything that have been destroyed, just this year alone so far will have to cost hundreds of thousands.
