Thank you everyone!  :) ;) ;D

 :finger: <-- directed at that pervo IDE!


Happy Birthday Brian!

I'm watching Season 4 of Batman the Animated Series.


Hey now where the hell is the spolier alert telling me this thread's not work safe.

Happy Happy Birthday! From me to you! I wish it was my birthday so I could party too...HEY!!!!!!

Starblazers really sucked and yet there's 3 seasons of it.  Must be more exciting in the original Japanese.  Captain Herlock is slow and boring, even his hotness can't save the show.

I'm sorry but that dude is just gross (for Spiderman that is).   Hollywood has pretty much killed my Spiderman fantasies.  Well at least there is still The Flash that is until Hollywood messes him up too.   

Last Christmas I watched Predator with Kary (it was her first time). Love that movie, it's the best!

Merla and I saw this doc on PBS the other day called "China Blue" about sweatshop jean factories in China and the shitty-ass treatment and pay.

Reminds me of the 18 and 20 year-old work studies who had never heard of the Predator!!!  I nearly killed over before I realized they only babies when the movie came out.  Makes me feel so old  (Shut-up Rama!!). 

Yeah that China Blue thing makes me feel bad about my walmart denim purchases. 

Happy belated Birthday!

Sorry to hear about the drama on your b-day.  Some people are just jerks like that.

Junk for Whataburger (Whatachicken and fries (and I've been avoid fries like the plague)) because I am so sleep deprived.

Last week the IOC stripped China of it's women's gymnastics bronze team 2000 Olympic team medal.  An IOC investigation found one of the girls to be under age.  According to the rules all female gymnast have to be 16 or old.  We all know the Chinese are cheats; they always have girls on the squad that look 11 or 12.  I feel bad for the girls because they are only doing what they are told.  I bet you China also had under age girls on the 2008 gold medal squad. 

Something should of been done about it a long time ago.  Apparently a complaint was launch but no one wanted to offend the Chinese and an investigation reveled nothing.  A new investigation was launched because the gymnast in question was working as a technician at the 2008 games and her credentials listed a birth date different from the one she used at the games.  She also said in an interview she was only 14 at the games but later claimed she misspoke.  Her blog says she is of the year of the ox which makes her too young to have participated in the games.

I wonder how the US team feels about getting the bronze a whole 10 years later? 


Don't do that!  I thought he had expired!

God I hope they bring back Elvis!

The last movie I saw was New Moon.  I thought it sucked.  I didn't care for Bella's major depression and bouts of screaming fits.  I worry that young girls will think this is normal break-up behavior.

Right now I am also typing with one arm....

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!  A horrible image came to mind.

Did you guys hear about the new Starbucks' sizes, Plenta and Mirca.  Hahahaha!!

On Public Radio they had this guy who was the only Holocaust survivor from his village.  He was talking about his village and he mentioned the town baker was named "Schmoo."

Merla and IDE.

Hey! Leave me out of this. ^w^

Was the classmate black?


No, the white woman was not naked. 

My classmate's friend (also black) runs a reselling shop.  She got tired of people always trying to haggle with her so she hired a white woman to work the counter and the haggling virtually disappeared.

So long are there Paternity tests to anounce, he stall endure.

I can't stand his show.  Nothing against him.  It's the guest that disgust me.  How is it that a dozen men can be tested for paternity and none of them are the father?!?  How a woman could be with so many men in such a short time window is beyond my comprehension?   

I don't know what should be done with these people.  Too bad we can't really send them to Mars.

One of my classmates use to make baskets.  They were not selling. A friend told her put a picture of a white woman on her business cards.  She took the advice and her baskets started selling.

I found it hard to believe that both those dudes, Blane and Steff, wanted her.

I don't get the ending of that movie.  Andy really needed to blow Blane off and end up with the duck man.  And what is with that line at the end where Blane is all "You didn't believe in me."  Believe in him?  Is he freaken serious?  He was the one avoiding her at school and not returning her calls.  Jeez...

Oh man that does sound bad.

I love havarti!  I had a turkey and havarti sandwich for lunch from the Target deli.  It's the best!

Sneaky Kid and Its Aftermath: Ethics and Intimacy in Fieldwork  by Harry Wolcott.

The story initially begins in the early 80's. Professor Wolcott was big stuff in world of anthropology back then.  He lives on 20 acres of forested property he owns in Oregon.  One day he discovers a 19 year old squatter, who he refers to as Brad, living on his property.  Brad had dropped out of society and had built a cabin.  For the next two years Wolcott studies Brad a self described "sneaky kid."  Brad got by on food stamps and stealing the things he needed.  Brad problems began when his parents divorced and he was tossed back in forth because he didn't get along with either step-parent.  He lost interest in school, skipped out, and was eventually sent to reform school. Upon his release he lived in a series of apartment rented by his mom and worked a few second rate job.  He eventually turned his back on society.  Wolcott concluded that once Brad left the system (school, work, family, friends) there was no one helping him to return to society.  There was no organization or agency to help him.  If Brad was going to return to society it was going to have to be through his own efforts.  Brad is one unique case but there are thousands of people like him who have drifted away from society.  Wolcott wrote several papers about Brad.   

One day Brad disappeared.  Two year later Brad returned, attempted to murder Wolcott and his partner, and burned Wolcott's home down.  It turns out Wolcott and Brad had a sexual relationship! Brad felt violated and victimized and sought revenge.  Brad was sentence to 20 years in prison.   While nothing happened to Wolcott who I personally feel should have suffered some repercussions for his serious breach of ethics.  This case is why there are strict rules in place when conducting research and why all research has to be approved by an Ethics Review Board.
