G*ddamn cars

April 28th, 2013

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted anything here.

First, I’ve been off work due to an injury.  don’t know if I’ll get back to work before school ends.

Next, I dropped a grand on the car to get a bunch of stuff fixed.  Sheesh!  Now, I tried to reprogram my key fob so I don’t have to screw around with the key but no luck so far.  Yeah, I tried the “get into the car, close door, turn key to on and back to off 8 times leaving it ON.”  I didn’t get the locks to cycle so I don’t know what’s going on. :(

Other than that, nothing real new on this end.

Always in our hearts

the US anti-doping agency, NOT the one with authority over the tour de france, can strip anyone of titles not won in the US.

I was happily informed that two schmucks have been arrested and charged with the murder of that Wheaton volloyball player.  Gee, they did that in Missouri.  Don’t they still have capital punishment?  My version’s a lot harsher than here.  I go for the Russian version.  Lock ‘em up in death row, solitary and loet ‘em sit there and stew, then one day go get ‘em, walk ‘em down a hall and bang-bang.

Then there is the bozo in NYC.  Coppers did the world a favor and took his ass outta the gene pool.  Question is why wasn’t he checked out better?  Gads
