PETA wins again

March 28th, 2007 7 comments

Humans are animals, right? Hopefully I’m not the only one who finds it ironic that they are hosting a sexiest vegetarian alive contest. More or less they are exploiting humans in a number of ways to get publicity for their website. They have ads spammed all over the web regardless of website content, in the hopes that people will click to check out the hot vegetarians… and in passing perhaps read some delicious propaganda.

Normally I’m not one to dabble in politics, but this was silly enough to catch my attention. Reminds me of those naked celeb “I’d rather wear nothing than fur” ads they had a while back. Same deal. Apparently they’re above exploiting any animals except humans. I find it ironic since they go so above and beyond when it comes to riding their high horse.

My apologies to the user at and anyone else who is experiencing the heartbreaking broken image links in my LJ. I host all my own images and, as noted in a previous post, I had a *glitch* in my server backup procedure and lost everything.

To my faithful reader at, I have found and replaced pizzapan.jpg. You may now enjoy my sublime content at your leisure. Seriously though, stop surfing the internet and get back to studying.

I was talking with Joe and Niel about the unix time bug this morning. I was mentioning to Joe that it’s going to be a bitch to fix.

Joe: What do I care, I’ll be dead or in diapers hitting on nurses by then.
Neil: What kind of nurse is going to make out with some old dude gumming on jello?
Me: Hey, there are some girls out there that like old dudes. You never know.
Joe: Yeah, all like 6 of them. And one just died.
Me: …. good burn.

That polar bear cub in Germany that’s been all over the news is cute for sure. But I think they could have come up with a better name than “Knut”. It’s so damn easy to misread at a glance when they have it up on the TV.

Ref my last post.

My boss, talking to the higher-ups about Symbol:

“We used to have a really good relationship with them. We probably still do, but they’re a huge pain in the ass. If we got rid of them it would be like that really hot girlfriend that you dump because she’s too needy, and all your friends are like ‘dude, wtf?’. They just don’t understand.”

25 into 4 right over crest tightens

It snowed for once. Got to dig my car out of snow drifts in front of my place over a foot deep. that was the only truly unpleasant part of the drive in. I was literally plowing the road on the way from my place to the highway. it was just an inch or 2 over the height of the undercarriage of my car. can’t do that in RE92s. I was very glad I’ve done as much racing on loose/slick surfaces. and VERY glad I took that winter driving course at the O’Niel school. Despite the relatively untreated roads and obstacle course of overturned SUVs*, I made it into work on time and safe without having to push it. Except those few places on the back roads where I worked the e-brake a little for fun when nobody was around.

*I actually had decided to take a poll of how many SUVs vs other vehicles were crippled on the side of the road this morning. 100% SUVs. Attn – your SUV does not handle like a car. your SUV is no better in the snow than a car when you still have regular tires on your car (you brake and turn just the same as any other vehicle). Stop thinking your SUV is a tank or some kind of snow juggernaut. Hummers look pitiful in snowbanks, just like any car does.

I surf Fark pretty much on a daily basis to find strange news. Seems like “teacher had sex with 15yo student” is popping up almost daily in recent weeks. Looks like teachers are the new occupation of choice when it comes to child abuse. Take THAT, clergy!

turns out the data I thought I had backed up never made it to the remote machine. 4 or 5 years of personal data… pics, docs, accumulated bits of information, etc… gone. this doesn’t put me in the best of moods.
