Intellectual Humor

I just had to share this.

More Shark Week

Fun fact: According to the Mythbusters, sharks are unaffected by the chemical in hot chili peppers that makes them hot. Also, they seem to enjoy eating balloons. I'm not sure why. For that matter, why do crocodiles enjoy eating marshmallows? Some things in the animal kingdom just don't make sense.

Maybe I should just accept it. I mean, sharks eating balloons shouldn't be a surprise. Sharks have been found with license plates and suits of armor in their stomachs. Why would they turn the other gill to a balloon full of chili?

Also, big news: Freakazoid Season 1 comes out this week.

I think I need to change my underwear.

Shark Week

Happy Shark Week, everybody. I'm going to try to use this week to learn, as well as teach my dear readers, as much cool stuff about sharks as possible. So, I guess I'm off to Wikipedia. In the meantime, I'll grab some random shark attack videos off of YouTube to keep you amused.

Rant: You Know What I Hate?

The weather.

It's been even more schizophrenic than usual. All week, it's been hopping back and forth between hot as hell and miserable shit rain. I mean, I don't mind a little rain, but we're talking buckets of rain. Watching it sheet off the roof into the gutters, it's like God left the bathtub running and it's spilling out all over the place. Plus, the floor-rattling thunder with bolts of lighting that illuminate the entire sky doesn't help the atmosphere much.

Meanwhile, I have no idea what to do with my car windows. If I leave them down when it's hot out, the interior ends up soaking wet. But if I leave them up, then the inside of the car gets hot enough to bake a tray of brownies. And when it switches from one to the other in a matter of hours, I really have no chance of guessing right.

So yeah, that's what's getting on my nerves lately.

Joke of the Day

No, this will not be a reoccurring thing. And no, I didn't come up with the joke. It's one of those ones that's been told so many times, no one knows who came up with it anymore. Enjoy.


A man bought a new Mercedes to celebrate his wife leaving him and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive.

The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him.

“There’s no way they can catch a Mercedes,” he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100…..Then the reality of the situation hit him. “What am I doing?” he thought and pulled over.

The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car.

“It’s been a long hard day, this is the end of my shift and it’s Friday the 13th. I don’t feel like more paperwork, I don’t need the frustration or the overtime, so if you can give me a really good excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.”

The guy thinks about it for a second and says, “Last week my nagging wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back!”

“Have a nice weekend,” said the officer.

Quick Update

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I think the weather is screwing with my brain. I'm pretty sure this past week was one of the hottest on record. I don't follow the weather forecasts, so I'll just assume it was around 110 degrees with 105% humidity.

Seriously, when it gets as hot as it's been this past weekend, I literally can't think. I think the heat actually interferes with my enzyme activity, and my neurons can't produce neurotransmitters properly, effectively shutting down my brain and making it impossible to process a thought more complex than, "Fuck, it's hot!"

On the bright side, staying inside with the AC on yesterday seemed to help my brain work better. I got a little work done on that novel of mine. It was only a couple pages, but that's more than I did through the whole month of June, so I'm fairly proud of myself. It's amazing what I can accomplish when I shut the damn tv off.

Oh, and I bought an immortality ring off the internet. Yet more proof that I can be talked into anything.

That's all for now, blogosphereans. Stay cool.

My Inbox

I usually don't check my email every single day, simply because I don't get that much. Plus, I rarely receive anything especially time-sensitive. But this... is just downright depressing.

Anyway, I haven't been online much this week. I've been working every day since Wednesday, and I'm a little run down. I had actually been planning to make a special video blog entry, but now I'm not sure if that's going to materialize or not. Only time will tell, I guess.

Some good news, though. It's offical: I got accepted to SUNYIT after all, so it looks like I'm off to school again in the fall. I'm not 100% sure it's the right program for me, but come on. These residence halls kick ass!

#3: No Number 3 - Writer Has Tuberculosis

Anyone else watch Letterman? Again, sorry for the lack of updates. I've had kind of a busy week.

I had my meeting with the SUNYIT people. It looks like I'm in, barring some unforseen incident. So, I'm back in school in the fall. I'm just bursting with excitement.

Also, as they said they would, my superiors at the meals delivery job have started calling me for additional days. A lot. It's funny to think that just last week I was working one day a week. Next week, I have six days in a row. I guess that's why they call it 'work', right?

I've still been playing Rogue Galaxy in my spare time. Now I know why I took a break from playing it. Like many RPGs before it, this game threatens to swallow up my very being like some kind of gaming black hole. Yesterday, I played for about 11 hours solid. After that amount of time, even the characters in the game were saying, "Wow, you've been playing forever. Why don't you call it a day?" (I wish I were joking, but that is 100% true. I guess Kisala knows more about time management than I do).

I bought some more music while I was out. Aerosmith's "Devil's Got A New Disguise", and some classic Bon Jovi. It's a shame my hair's too short to effectively headbang anymore.

Oh, that reminds me: I got a haircut. It's now very short and greasy (just like me). It's kind of funny how a trim and a little gel can make me look years older. Anyway, I'll have photos/video of that later. I'm signing off now. Toodles~<3.
