“A car cannot be killed... it was murdered.”

Master Shake, Episode 100 “The Rabbot” (Uncut), Aqua Teen Hunger Force

I love Aqua Teen Hunger Force.  I brought in a Video CD that I burned at Brian’s house.  I can fit about 6 shit-quality 12 minute episodes on a single 658 MB CD-RW.  I can’t believe that they made an “uncut” version of the pilot.  I wish it was more “late-night Showtime uncut” and less “community college freshman project uncut.”  I’m wondering if there is a reason why Nero 7 thinks that my 658 MB CD-RW can hold 702 MB.  I know that’s going to cause some sort of problem someday…  Oh, well.

“History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon.”

Napoleon Bonaparte

I’m posting from the Hultquist Library at Jamestown Community College.  I actually found five book sources on the affects of violent video games on children, my topic for the English 1530 research paper.  I should probably pick a side, as it’s an argumentative paper.  Both arguments seem quite valid to me, but I have to think that video games can cause harm if misused (played to much or played by the mentally unstable).  However, Doom did not kill the students at Columbine, a couple of nutjobs* in a state where guns are too available were responsible.  Going back to the gun control debate in Participation in Government, no one needs an assault rifle (besides of course the military, and possibly the police).

*nut jobs? nut-jobs?  I need a spellchecker…

I had better get back to work…

“I've pissed higher than the tallest building in Utah.”

Maddox, “Idaho Blows”, maddox.xmission.com

Those lousy <Asian_stereotype />s can’t get a simple online order right.  I ordered three items (see this post), and because one is still in back-order, they still have yet to ship.  I knew it was in back-order, but it was expected to ship November 1st, and today is November 13th, and it still hasn’t shipped.  I emailed them yesterday, cancelling the Retro GameCube Controller.  Hopefully I’ll get the two adapters before Christmas…

So Howard Stern got suspended for a day for promoting his upcomng Sirius channel.  That seems lke total crap.  All media is is a method of advertisement, and Howard gets suspended for advertising.  I find Howard to be pretty played out, but I’m buying into the Sirius hype.  His first broadcast is gonna be great.  He’ll just be swearing and bashing the F.C.C.  I’m so glad Dish Network is offering free Sirius radio on their service.  I’m hooked on Alt Nation (Sirius Channel 21, Dish Network Channel 6021), and Howard Stern’s two channels are gonna be sweet (…until they get old, too).

“No matter how high the throne, there sits but an ass.”

Voltaire

I used that quote in my English paper… I’m bad-ass.  I think that that was the first paper this year that I started earlier than the night before it was due.  I wonder what I got on it.

The Bills won another game today.  Now they’re second in their division, at 4-5.  The Super Bowl champs, the New England Patriots, are in first at 5-4.  Our division sucks.

Sami F. owes me big time, and she knows it.  We were volunteering for the Leo Club (Lions Club for teenagers) at the Blue Building (It’s a small town, and we aren’t very creative.), and my job was getting drinks for the customers.  I know I’m anti-social, but even I can ask people, “Milk, water, or coffee?”  After aiding three people, Allison O. approaches me and says, “You’re doing dishes in the kitchen.”  My response: “No.”  Unwilling to make a scene, I go with her to the kitchen, ready to do dishes.  She tells the cook that I am theirs.  I was going to mention the 13th Amendment, but it was a little too late.  After Allison left, some guy asked me, “Is that your girlfriend?”  “Nope, I just don’t have a spine.”  Anyway, I blame Sami because of the smirk she gave me on the way to the kitchen.  She was the one who volunteered me, I’m sure of it.  She’s goin’ down…

Mrs. Edwards dropped a bit of a bomb at the last quiz bowl practice.  We’re going to start wearing fancy clothes to the matches.  Now I need to get a new pair of fancy pants.  (My old ones are fading in fanciness.  Also, they’re a little too small.)
