Rules of Beer

These are non-negotiable. If you think differently, you’re wrong
Rule 1: Any beer you have to fortify with fruit is not worth drinking.
Rule 2: Any beer sold in a tackle shop, you do not drink unless you are fishing.
Rule 3: A beer is a snack, not a meal. It shouldn’t be like a bowl of oatmeal.
That is all.
Again, if you disagree, you are wrong. And you find tubgirl attractive.

They Got Him

One Down, Osama to go.
And all I can think of, and I saw reading /. is that there is a large contingent who really wish it was George W. Bush hiding in a hovel. I’m not really even sure what to say about that.
Hmmph.
Lionel is right — Linda Vester from Fox News does look like she’s watching an autopsy all the time.

It pisses Adam off to no end, because it fucks up everything you’ve got open in a screen session when somebody does that. Normally the perpertrator is none other than yours truly.
I had a very strange dream today. No shit. I abandoned all reason, and went to become Howard Dean’s media advisor. Of course, it’s a job I’m only marginally qualified for, and I don’t think I’d work for Dr. Dean (see, I’ve figured that one out too….you say “Dr. Dean” or “General Clark” next to the disparaging “Mister Bush”….objective journalism 101 here folks), but we were riding around the country in this beat up like 1940’s Plymouth. Having strategy sessions. I’d taken the job because I’d gotten pissed off at the radio station, and decided that anything, even throwing away my principles and working for rich boy Howie, would be better than spending one more night slaving away inside the newsroom. I wonder if it conincides with the fact that I got woken up again today for a bullshit reason…
I did write some damn good campaing ads for Howie, tho. I’d do that sort of thing, except campaigning isn’t a good way to make a halfway decent living.
And I’ve goot too much hair to be James Carville.

I am such a geek

How many other people spend copious amounts of time reading entries out of the state department’s world fact book, and reading the travel advisories to those places? Yep, that’s me.
NERD
I still think I ought to go back to Eastern Europe, maybe to live. Computer stuff is in demand, and I could probably live pretty well in Albania.
Really.
In other news, the company Christmas (Yes, that’s the major holiday, and so the season should be referred to as such…) Party is goin on downstairs. I have been given a reprieve, but I am at work. And that sucks.
People don’t talk late at night as much in #757 anymore, and *nobody* IM’s me anymore
Gotta be a bitchy, whiny blogger sometimes….

We've Offended the Frenchy French

Thanks to Glenn Beck for the nickname. Unfortunately, the accent doesn’t translate to text….
Anyway, we’ve pissed off the Frenchy French, the Germans, the Canadians, and the Russians because their companies won’t be allowed to bid on contracts to rebuild Iraq.
Excuse me?
Look, here’s the deal, and I’ll spell it out for each country…..
France: Take Jerry Lewis, and I don’t think anyone would be particularly upset if we never heard from you again. It’s a moot point for you really — is there anything actually made in france anymore, other than food and wine?
Germany: Like your Communist Chancellor now? Couldn’t wait to stick it to Helmutt, but things have been downhill since he left.
Russia: Hey, guys, we know Saddam owed you money. But you could have helped out some. Dubya might change his mind here, because Vladimir has records of his wild youth from the KGB archives.
Canada: You notice how quickly the US Army sliced through Iraq? STFU, or you’re next.
Here’s the deal. The companies from the countries in the “Coalition of the willing” funded the Iraq invasion via taxes they paid. They ought to reap the benefits that are appearing now. It’s as simple as that.

Users are Lusers

Found this gem on F’d Company. While I understand that users are prone to do stupid things to their machines, there comes a time where you cease making policy for a reason, and start making policy to show that those penis-enlargment pills you ordered from your spam are working.
Besides, guys who sign their emails “MSCE” aren’t worth the ammo it’d take to kill them. Talking in #757, I think there should be a new set of letters those of who are cert-less and proud should use. Only thing that’s required (and this isn’t required for getting an MSCE) is having a clue. I present….

At least we won’t try and poison your network with whatever new security risk MS has released this week. *cough*AD*cough.
