Stay on target...stay on target...

Not even a month into school again and I'm already overloaded. I have the same prof for both classes and she's a bit nutty. She has assigned so much work for the entire semester and asks us to do work based on material we're only covering at the end of the term. She expects us to know way more than we do and it's too much. It's just too much.

Then I received a forward of some gorgeous photos of Greece. Here are a few.






My question is, what am I doing wrong to not be living someplace like that? Can you imagine the lives of the filthy rich who can vacation in places like this, or have a pied à terre down there? Incredible.

My producer here at work is going on vacation this week and she asked me why I never take any vacation. I really had no answer. I sorta said I have no place to go and if I took days off, I'd just laze at home...I might as well come in to work. I'm thinking after I finally complete these bloody classes, maybe a vacation someplace might be in order.

What is it with old people?

Why do old people continue to bother me? This time, it's the way they look at people.

I was on the bus, watching the Daily Show on my media player, when I noticed out of the corner of my eye, the old woman in front of me looking me up and down with this twisted, disgusted face...as if she didn't approve. So I just glanced up at her and she quickly looked away. But when it seemed I wasn't looking again, she would contort her face with disgust at me.

So I decided to pay more attention. On the metro, I looked out for young folks and old people. Very often, the old people would check out young people and look disapprovingly at them or, and this is true, sometimes shake their heads. And I'm not talking about tattoed, eyebrow-ringed goth freaks. I'm talking normal looking youths. Hey old people, if you don't like it, there's a room in a nursing home with your name scrawled on it.

Just to cheer me up and hopefully you, my faithful readers (if any), I'm putting up a video that always makes me crack a smile. Enjoy.

Dawson

Let's blame...say..."Doom" and "Grand Theft Auto" for the shootings. That's an easy scapegoat.

Whew, my conscious is clear now.

Conspiracy

I was on the metro this morning and among many interesting things, I saw on the little electronic newsboard some statistics. Apparently, 22% of Canadians and 30% of Quebecers (higher in the 18-25 age bracket) believe the US government was behind the attacks on the twin towers, as an excuse to go to war. Now, the current government down there is many things (mostly incompetent) but I have such a hard time believing that. There is no way they staged that...mainly because they don't have the competence. I mean, it's a neat little conspiracy theory but to actually believe something like that makes me fear for the intelligence of the public.

Did the government know something like this was going to happen? Yeah, I think Condoleezza Rice even testified to that fact. Then why didn't they stop it? Not because they orchestrated it, but rather because they're incompetent. I love that word.

Anyway, this brings me to another theory that really gets me upset: people who believe the moon landing was staged in a tv studio somewhere. Are these people for real? I don't know why but idiots who believe this anger me so much. What an incredible scientific achievement, what a sensational step for humanity...denied by some yahoo crackpots who think everyone is out to get them. And these aren't mental cabdrivers or Mel Gibson. Or both. 22%. 30%. That's huge. I can't believe how many idiots are out there.

Conclusion: I'm so much better than most people.
