The Day of Strangeness

Today was one of the strangest days I've ever lived. I saw strange weather, strange decisions, strange actions, strange clothes, and strange answers. I really need to go to bed and put this day to an end.

This is one strange world in which we live.


P.S. - This weekend I'll be out in the field so don't expect any posts. I might put up another one tonight before I rack out.

UPDATE 01 APR 2005 @ 1826:

It seems the FTX has been postponed for 24 hours. We will be leaving early tomorrow morning instead.

US-CERT ST05-007 -- Risks of File-Sharing Technology


Man, if it wasn't for these CERT alerts, I wouldn't have much of anything new up here. Soon my dear readers, soon.

Well... Yep.

There are a few stories that I've run across that I'd like to write about, but I don't have the time at the moment. I will post links for your perusal, though. We'll see how many of these actually turn into posts, though.

Crispy Lives On

Hello Loyal Readers,

I wanted to update you all since you haven't heard from me since the 5th. Last Monday (7th) I came down with the flu. By Wednesday, I had a 103+ degree fever. The college decided to send me "home" which gave me a head start on Spring Break (with the added bonus of getting me out of a midterm). After staying with some family for a few days, I decided to drive home on Friday. Now, all that is left is the "100 day cough" portion. It looks like I'll be working for the remainder of the week so don't sit at your computers clicking that refresh button waiting to hear a piece of my never-ending wisdom, because it probably won't be here. Maybe I'll have something over the weekend. Otherwise, expect regular posting to resume next week, once I get settled in back at the college. Until then, be safe.


UPDATE 19MAR @ 2220:

Okay, no weekend post.

I Love Debates Pt II

Well, there has yet to be a reply since my last post over one week ago.

I win.


Fry the Freaks. Let 'em Burn.

I was reading Cox & Forkum when I ran across a reference to the Roper vs. Simmons case, which didn't immediately trigger a memory. So I ran a quick search [linked above] on it.

For those of you that think young adult offenders should live, you are out of what's left of your minds.

Once you are of a certain age (say 13), you know full and well what you are doing and the consequences of your actions. For my first example, I'd like to use the "DC Sniper" Chump (the gay one, remember?). That derelict should be sentenced to death just as any other person. I do not understand why people continually seek to justify and excuse the actions of other people. If you break the friggin' law (ie: murder someone), you should be held accountable the same as every one else.

I believe in equal rights & equal opportunity. Just because you happen to be a minor at the time you committed the crime, you should be held to the same standard as everyone else. If you murdered someone, you should be shot, electrocuted in Old Sparky, or gassed to death. This legal injection with several medications to "stop the pain" is ridiculous. Strap him or her into the chair, stick a camera about 15 in front of them, hook up two cups of Liquid Plumber and enjoy the show. How's that for reality TV?

Stop trying to justify crime. Stop trying to pardon guilt. Don't vindicate, devastate!
