Burnning cars...

When I was still in my teens, we would go over to Louisiana and go to some great clubs. Having said that, I will now tell you a story.

I was 19 and in college, SFASU. I experimented with many drugs and stuff like that. One night in the dorm room, my roomie and I were pouring Everclear alcohol into a green 7-Up bottle and setting it on fire. the fumes would burn at the top of the bottle. it was neat. Anyway, I was in Louisiana at a club called Club Fizz. we were in the parking lot waiting for a friend to come out and get us. I happen to have a 7-Up bottle and some Everclear with me, so I started doing the fire thing. it was cool and pretty as I was frying. well, I set it down and talked to my friend in the back seat. I had sheepskin seat covers on the front seats and a lot of paper under the passenger seat. I drove a Plymouth Sundance (later called the Flamedance) red interior and white exterior. I picked up the bottle and lit it again, it shot flames out and scared the shit out of me!! I threw the bottle down and the burning liquid caught the seat cover on fire, it quickly started to burn up the interior and the bouncers pushed the car out into a grassy field as flames shot out of the window. The fire department came and doused the car with water!! I was scared of how I was going to explain this to my parents at 4am in the morning... Well, we drove the car home with a wire frame of a passenger seat home. The insurance people totaled the car out and we purchased it back for $5000 and had the interior redone. I drove the car without a passenger seat for about a month as we bought one and it was getting recovered with material that matched mine. I put a lawn chair on the place of it for a while!!! Very funny! I drove the car until the summer of 1992 when I bought my Acura Integra. Two years later, I saw a car burnning on West Loop 610 in Houston. It was a rainy night and very late. I did not see any cops there...

I got the Flamedance in 1989 as a graduation present from my grandparents. What hell I put them through...
I love the dearly and I am going t see them in about 2 days!!!
BOB has now left the building...

New Movies...

Well kiddies, I hope that in the New Year, 2007, we have some better movies than what we had this year. Only a few come to my mind that were funny and worth noting that I saw in the Commonwealth 20.

1. Talladega Nights
2. Beer Fest
3. The Pink Panther (very good remake IMHO)
4. You, Me and Dupree

1. Da Vinci Code
2. Failure To Launch
3. Last Holiday

I watched on DVD - The Benchwarmers, Iceage 2, Stick It, Good Night and Good Luck, Syrian, Jarhead, SAW1&2, ALL THE STAR WARS movies, The Island, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Family Stone, Cheaper By the Dozen 2, The Girl Next Door.
Several series that I watch include: Nip/Tuk, The Shield, Rescue Me, Big Love, Deadwood, and The Wire

I need and plan to watch X-Men III as I have it and several others including the Bevis& Buthead 3 DVD pack set!!! and Invader Zimm 3 DVD set, also Capote.

I plan to purchase "SAWIII" when it comes out as well as "A Scanner Darkly" and " The Woman in the Water" (I am a BIG M. Night Shyamalan fan) And lots of 1970s and 8os TV series have come out: Jason of Star Command, Jonna's Arc, D&D, Just to name a few.

I just hope that the Fantastic Four 2 with the Silver Surfer will be good as I thought the first movie was a good one. We need some franchise to fill the gap left by Star Wars and LOTR ending.

I will try to post over the next week, but my mother's internet connection is very s-l-o-w.
So it might be sporadic, but I will try. If not, Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

I updated my Personal Website today. A few new pics and junk.





Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood

over questions of reality and illusion.

am no less an illusion, and being thus, the

illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I

This just sucks the big one!

5 million of our older Americans have not signed up yet for their
Medicare, Part D, drug plan------they are old and confused.

We are NOT going to grant them an extension.

However, 12 million illegal aliens are in our country and we are
going to allow them to stay, protest, procreate, receive support
monies, attend schools, avoid paying income taxes, have our
teachers take 300 hours of ESL(English as a Second Language)
training at our expense, etc.


Don't forget to pay your taxes......
12 million illegal aliens are depending on you!

Give all of our secrets...

I have the internet at work and home much like 100 million other people. Now, why do we post pics of future designs of our Military equipment? We give CUT-A-WAY views of this stuff. People that want to destroy the USA have the same information available to them as we do if they want to LOOK hard enough. It is just like Discovery Channel, the like to report about "top secret" or new technology. WHY IS THIS?? To terrorist not watch TV or surf the internet? I got this headline off of!! Why do they need spies? All the need to do is surf the internet!! It is a lot easier then having someone try to steal the blueprints. On the Cutouts, it shows where the engine rooms and other very important areas are located. Just the right spot to place a BOMB or a torpedo or some other device to cripple the ship. How stupid is that? In my opinion, this should be TOP SECRET, not public knowledge...
Just my opinion...

Posting on my BLOG

I welcome Comments to my BLOG. I LOVE for people to post and let me hear what other People think about things I say or situations around the world, but WHAT I cannot stand is the fact that SOME people who use the ANONYMOUS setting to post are pussies!! My name is on my BLOG and if you don't have the BALLS to say your name. Get out of the BLOGASPHERE and off the NET.

To quote"Anonymous said...
In today's mainstream society (primarily among the upper-class) we regularly perform painful, long-term, cranial modification for the sake of aesthetics, on children as young as 10 or 12; there's an entire industry built upon it, called orthidontistry. Now granted we say that it's harmless, and for the good of the child, but much of the time is truly unnecessary and causes great pain and suffering; and the child would live a perfectly normal, healthy, comfortable life otherwise (albeit with a culturally perceived "deformity"). This form of body modification is perfectly acceptable, and I ask what truly makes it any different? I cast no moral judgment on either culture, I merely find it an intriguing hypocrisy

WHAT AN ASS!!! He can enjoy his crooked teeth and butwipe, they get taken off after a Few years. Mine did!!

So, step up to the plate!!

Day Shift...

I started the day shift yesterday. I am not a big fan of it. More People, More Engineers, more stuff ingeneral. I have to train on it, so that is why I am here. IT felt like someone had beaten the shit out of me yesterday after lunch. I was soooo tired and ran down as I did not sleep much the night before(Sunday night). I get up around 4.50 or 5.00 am to get my day started. I am still on the same shift schedule, but just on days, not nights. I just work better on the night shift. I have to be out of the FAB by 9.00am to start my "Training"...
We will see what it is like, and I am also trying to secure my other interview this week before we go to Texas next week for Christmas! I cant wait to go. IT will be hard for me to post next week as I have no reliable interconnection where I am going. SO I will have to find enough stuff to keep the masses happy this week so we can coast through the next. :-)

Durham NC...

Well, I lift from work @ 7.15 am on Friday to drive to Durham to visit my Brother for the weekend. I got to his house around 10.30 am and we proceeded to go and eat and talk about lots of things. He drove me around the Duke campus and I was Totally BLOWN away!!! It looked like a campus from an Ivy League school instead of a southern university. I was very tired, but I did not fall asleep until 8.30 pm and I had been up since Thursday @ 3.30pm…What a stretch!! So I woke up the next morning at 7.20 am and we proceeded with our day!!! Cliff my brother is in Duke Divinity School to become a Methodist Preacher!! He is very wise and a very brilliant young man at 26 years old. I do so enjoy debating with him on cretin subjects!! We took a walking tour of Duke and IT was amazing. The main Cathedral was built in 1932 and it is in the old English Gothic style of Notre Dame!! I was so sad that I forgot my camera, but next time, I will have it and have pics of the stained glass!! There is over 1 million pieces of class in the cathedral. The campus is really interesting and I would have loved to have had the opportunity to have gone to Duke. After we walked around the main campus, we took a walk through Duke Gardens. We went home after the walk and got some food. At around 12.30pm, Cliff and I went on a bike ride for over 2 hours! WE got kicked off a gold course as we did not know that it was a private one!!! A munchkin as it was, was the greens keeper and this PAT came and asked us to leave the course with our bikes, we complied, and found another way around to get where we wanted to go. We then came home and watched movies and stuff like, just chilled out!! We got up this morning and we went to the church where Chill is a member and an assistant preacher. It was a very interesting service as it was multi lingual, Spanish ad English. IT was a good service and sermon, Cliff was the Liturgist and lead some prayers and stuff like that. After the service, we had a “Pot Luck” lunch in the fellowship hall. I left Durham having had a good weekend and a needed break from Midlothian and my job. I will have 3 pics to post with my camera phone, but I will do them l8ter.

iPods In Space...

As many of you know, I am not a BIG fan of the IPOD or any Apple products. This is really funny to me that it made news. I had 2 of them and they were both trash. I looked for online support and finally bought a Creative Zen Touch and I have had no problems with it.

It seams that even NASA is not immune to the IPOD craze… The people I have an IPOD velcored to a part of the shuttle. At least NASA did not have to inspect it for re-entry to the earth’s atmosphere. The caption said on “What device was just spotted on this shuttle mission that has 400 times the CPU power and 80 times the memory of the avionics computers and can even survive a year date rollover?” A freaking IPOD!! WOW, I wonder if Apple got and endorsement for this one?? Perhaps we will get a revamp of the shuttles systems that only accepts firewire…no pun intended!! That is just SAD folks, a music player with more computing power than the shuttle?? I wonder if the astronauts would feel better flying an IPOD? “Now New and Improved IPOD shuttle by Apple and NASA. A joint operation that benefits all of mankind!!!

Here is the URL: IPOD “Editor's update: If you look at the left hand side of this image taken on Monday, 11 December, you will see an iPod and a Belkin external battery pack velcored to a panel next to the Discovery's toilet located in the Shuttle's middeck. The iPod is connected to a set of external speakers. It can also be seen in this image.” Well at least they did not use Duct Tape to put it on and being an Apple product, they knew where to place it…Near the crapper.

There is Even the have one on the Space station!! Apple must have paid lots for all this advertising!! I can see it now, International Space Station powered by IPOD!!!

Body Art, Modification...

We all know that the culture of today revolves around getting body modifications to an EXTREME nature to one up your buddy, BUT this is just STUPID to the Nth degree!!! That girl should have her ass beat by EVERYONE that walks by her!!! If I saw her, I would kick her ever-loving ass for doing something SOOOO STUPID as to disfigure her back like that. I have a Tattoo, and I have had it for over 12 years, this pic is just too much for the revolution of 20 somethings to be their own culture. I am Gen X, they are Gen F**K UPX!! Could you believe the pain that she must have endured to have this operation done?? HAVE WE AS A WHOLE LOST our Freaking MINDS or what little we have left??? DO they shun humanity SOOOO much that they need to be an animal or something else??? I for one am glad that I am a human and not some freak like them. I can go to the mall or to church and not be a freakshow on display all the time. DO they have no self worth as a human or person?? I guess not!! And for all of you Body Mod peoples, they even have a .ORG for yall! I tell you what, it would have to be a COLD DAY IN HELL for me to EVER!!! EVER!!!! do any Scarification to myself!!!!!!!

Well enough from me on this issue!! "AND CUT"

Invader Zim...

Well Kiddies, Invader Zim is finally out on DVD!! Not just one DVD, but a # DVD set with all of the episodes and "lost" stuff from the show. I purchased it at Wal Mart last week for $18!!! Crazy!! I cant wait to be able to watch some of them. Several years ago, a friend gave them to me from ones that he a downloaded off the net. They were good quality, but not DVD quality. Just an Update...

I go to Durham on Friday morning to spend the weekend with my brother!! I cant wait! It will be nice to get out of the house. I also go to day shift on Monday, I am not too excited about this, but I have to for a bit.
Zim and Ger!!!

School Bus Drivers and Safety...

How come is it that the god ole USA requires that EVERY Car and Truck have a Seat Belt; but that a Bus or more to the point, a School Bus does not have to have a seal belt??  DO they no drive on the road with all the other crazy people?  Why just today, I went and picked up my daughter early at school and we drove down a very curvy and hill laden road called Old Hundred Road.  On this road was Swiftcreek Middle School.  They got out early because our school district is so big they have to stagger the bus schedule.  We I followed Bus 369 doing 55mph down this road that is a 35mph road and I called into the school district transportation office and reported the driver for going 55mph.  Shouldn't the buses be required to have seatbelts in them as all other vehicles do??  I think that I read that in California, where most things cause cancer, they are going top require their buses to have seatbelts!! In this one instance, I congratulate them!! Perhaps they should take this step and apply their fore thinking to other areas of their economy and power industries…


All you hear about are school bus accidents and children getting hurt. Will seatbelts help this? Perhaps. Only time will tell.

Chesterfield Flasher...Ohhhh My!!!

Well kiddies, it looks like we have ourselvs a flasher in the county of Chesterfield, City of Midlothian. We all go to a stripmall in Midlo where the Commonwealth 20 Theater is located as well as Target, TJMax and other stores to numerous to mention. we have had over 30 confirmed flasher moments reported to the police and I think that this should be the new sign in the parking lots showing us all to be ware of a flasher!!
The police caught one flasher that hit several Stop-n-Robs around Chesterfield, but they have not been able to find this person. He likes to be in this area as he has flashed over 40 people this season alone!!! There are lots of cops that patorl that area as many kids hang out there due to the theater and a Barns&Noble on the property as well. Also, they patrol because Chesterfield has a 10pm curfew unless you are with an adult. More on this story as events occure!!

Scientists criticize bird flu search

"Unlike our entertainment, bird flu will arrive from our southern border. Latin American birds are willing to take the bird flu jobs that our Northern birds refuse to do"

This makes as much sence to me as any other misguided scientific exploit. Birds dont like cold weather, or at least most migratory birds go south for the winter. If they come from Asia to Canada via Alaska, that would to me be even colder. Hey, why not import the BIrd Flu from Mexico with all the cheep labor and illegal people as well. Sound like a good ole Democratic plan to me.

Definitions of precipitation

I found this interesting due to the bad weather that we have been haveing across the USA.
Many know that i am avid weather person.

Rain: Falling drops of water larger than 0.02 inch in diameter. In forecasts, "rain" usually implies that the rain will fall steadily over a period of time. (See "showers" below).

Light rain: Falls at the rate of 0.10 inch or less an hour.

Moderate rain: Falls at the rate of 0.11 to 0.30 inch an hour.

Heavy rain: Falls at the rate of 0.30 inch an hour or more.

Drizzle: Falling drops of water smaller than 0.02 inch in diameter. They appear to float in air currents, but unlike fog, do fall to the ground.

Light drizzle: Drizzle with visibility of more than 5/8 of a mile.

Moderate drizzle: Drizzle with visibility from 5/16 to 5/8 of a mile.

Heavy drizzle: Drizzle with visibility of less than 5/16 of a mile.

Showers: Rain that falls intermittently over a small area. The rain from an individual shower can be heavy or light, but doesn't cover a large area or last more than an hour or so.

Snow: Falling ice composed of crystals in complex hexagonal forms. Snow forms mainly when water vapor turns directly to ice without going through the liquid stage, a process called sublimation.

Snowflakes: Aggregations of snow crystals.

Snow flurries: Light showers of snow that do not cover large areas and do not fall steadily for long periods of time.

Snow grains: Very small snow crystals. The ice equivalent of drizzle.

Snow pellets: White, opaque ice particles that form as ice crystals fall through cloud droplets that are below freezing but still liquid (supercooled). The cloud droplets freeze to the crystals forming a lumpy mass. Scientists call snow pellets "graupel." Such pellets falling from thunderstorms are often called "soft hail."

Sleet: Drops of rain or drizzle that freeze into ice as they fall. They are usually smaller than 0.30 inch in diameter. Official weather observations list sleet as "ice pellets." In some parts of the country "sleet" refers to a mixture of ice pellets and freezing rain.

Freezing rain or drizzle: Falling rain or drizzle that cools below 32°F, but does not turn to ice in the air. The water is "supercooled." When the drops hit anything they instantly turn into ice.
Ice storm: A storm with large amounts of freezing rain that coats trees, power lines and roadways with ice. Often the ice is heavy enough to pull down trees and power lines.

Hail: Falling ice in roughly round shapes at least 0.20 inch in diameter. Hail comes from thunderstorms and is larger than sleet. Hailstones form when upward moving air -- updrafts -- in a thunderstorm keep pieces of graupel from falling. Drops of supercooled water hit and freeze to the graupel, causing it to grow. When the balls of ice become too heavy for the updrafts to continue supporting them, they fall as hailstones. Sleet, in contrast, consists of raindrops that freeze on the way down.

Thunderstorm: A rain or snow shower in which there is lightning. Thunder is always caused by lightning. In general, the upward and downward winds, updrafts and downdrafts, in thunderstorms are more violent than those in ordinary showers.

Thundersnow: A thunderstorm with snow instead of rain falling on the ground.
Severe thunderstorm: A thunderstorm with winds of 57 mph or faster or hail more than 3/4 inch in diameter reaching the ground. Severe thunderstorms can also produce tornadoes
