Tune in Next Time....because I don't have much to say right now

Sunday, August 24, 2008
See what happens when you’re doing your best to not watch the Olympics and trying (unsuccessfully) to avoid listening to the coverage of it on the news? Things like this happen.

It’s one of those moments where you have to go ahead and shake your head, wondering WTF? Seriously. Buddy. What could you possibly have been thinking? You get disqualified because you couldn’t stand up within the allotted time and then kick the referee in the face? Not the smartest thing in the world you could have done. Just be glad you were given a full minute. If this was boxing, you’d have been called out in 10 seconds!

I wrote earlier that I’d try to write something more intelligent to say but after having a glance through the news of the past few days, I have to say I just don’t have the energy. To sum it up for you, a bunch of people won some medals (a lot more didn’t), I discovered our government is run by idiots, there were a number of plane crashes where too many people died, I discovered your government’s run by idiots, there’s been a massive meat recall in Canada after an outbreak of Listeria has resulted in 4 deaths*, I discovered that everyone’s government is run by idiots, and some politician in the States picked his backup guy...

* Four deaths (that they know of) for the whole country might not seem like a lot to most of you out there but you have to remember that our entire country (although a physically larger land mass than the United States) has a total population equalling that of the state of California.

When you do the math, it gets a bit scarier:

4 deaths/states x 50 states = 200

If 200 people died in the US from food poisoning at the same time, guaranteed it’d be all over the news.

I hadn't seen or heard about this until now! Good God! He didn't look all that injured to me, before or after that kick! He got up, walked around, kicked, walked around some more. WTF indeed!

That meat thing is scary, isn't it?
