I needed TP. (Toilet Paper). So I went to Target with a list* and got my TP and some other things. As I was leaving, I saw this.

Sad that they had to put on a warning like that, but I’m too tired for a full blown rant. Next time friends, next time.

Are You Stupid?

March 20, 2012

I was browsing aimlessly and found an interesting article about how stupid American adults are.

According to the national survey commissioned (3 years ago) by the California Academy of Sciences:

  • Only 53% of adults know how long it takes for the Earth to revolve around the Sun.
  • Only 59% of adults know that the earliest humans and dinosaurs did not live at the same time.
  • Only 47% of adults can roughly approximate the percent of the Earth’s surface that is covered with water.
  • Only 21% of adults answered all three questions correctly.

I’m encouraged by this. I truly thought way more than half of adults were stupid.

Lazy Future Zombie

February 23, 2012

I understand that some people have trouble parallel parking. I understand people who have large SUV/trucks having trouble getting into small spaces. But this lazy SOB drives a Honda! I assume it’s laziness, because no one is that stupid. My first thought was “What an arrogant thing to do” but I’m constantly reminded how lazy, stupid, and selfish most of the sheep are in this area. (Sigh) Days like this I long for the Zombie Apocalypse. Most of the sheep will be Zombies or Zombie food and everyone knows Zombies can’t drive.

To clarify, had I not pulled out before this dipshit, she most certainly would have dented up my car…just like a Zombie.

. . .

I was not on the GW parkway, so I can not speak as to the causes of the 8 to 12 hr event, but my guess is always “Stupid People”.

If you own a sports car, and you take it to work on a day when every media outlet in the region says we will have snow…heavy, fast, big snow, starting between 3 and 4 pm, You are an idiot. You are part of the problem. For all I know you could have been THE problem.

I saw camaros, corvettes, Porsche’s, stupid looking little lowered sports cars that sound like lawn mowers, and even a scooter! Dumb Asses! Who gets behind the wheel of a corvette hours before a snow storm? Why would you risk getting caught in the storm?

“Maybe it’s his only form of transportation.” Ah…sure, right. If you can afford a corvette… Anyway it’s a stupid primary form of transportation on the day of a major snow storm. In my opinion.

I was in Springfield VA, spreading salt at the start of the storm and then plowing. Again, this picture just doesn’t capture the stupid things I saw stupid people doing.

Jail For Sale?

January 16, 2011

“So convinced were they that alcohol was the cause of virtually all crime that, on the eve of Prohibition, some towns actually sold their jails”

via On This Day: Prohibition Takes Effect in America.

I don’t think I’d want to buy a jail. Even cheap.

What did we learn from Prohibition? We should have learned that a few zealots can have a major impact on the laws of this country, that a vocal minority can ruin your weekend, and that not drinking is bad for you. Ok, I made the last one up, kinda, but we definitely should have learned the other two, but I doubt we did.

Cheers!

I don’t eat fast food much any more. But when I did, i sure did love a flame broiled cheese burger from burger King. With bacon! Mmmmmm. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. I used to get their onion rings too! I loved them… so tasty. Which makes me wonder how a company who makes such tasty food can make such horribly shitty commercials. The Creepy King has got to go. Seriously? Does anyone, anywhere, find it funny, or even entertaining? And what idiot, thought up the father &  son, Whopper, Whopper Jr campaign? Talk about stupid. And last year I think they had a grow man dressed as a baby…I’m not even sure what they were selling in that commercial. It boggles my mind to think that any of their commercials get approved by the company powers that be…you’d think someone, anyone would stand up and say “uhm..guys….that really sucked. Cause guys, your commercials really suck.

 

 

I decided last minute to pack a bag and head to my brothers house. I live in the DC area and the storm of the century had begun. I really did not want to be stuck at home, alone for the weekend. I topped off the radiator and hit the road.  There was probably 6 or 7  inches of snow down already and it was snowing hard and heavy. There were the usual 4 X4’s like me, doing  just fine, until we encountered a few of you dumb asses: The guy in the white Chevy van? All over the road; The Cab driver who thought he could? didn’t. He was sliding through all the lanes; The guy in the brand new Wrangler Jeep doing 60?  I hope he made it; The person in the ditch? I called 911 for them. People, please, if you don’t have 4 wheel drive, or if you just got 4 wheel drive stay off the road until it is dry again. You can not drive. I know you think you can, but you can’t. Your a danger to yourself, and more importantly your a danger to those around you, including me.

Seriously stay home. You can’t drive.
