Piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigs Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!!!

Okay… so not really.

But it’s like some weird Julie Andrews, sound of mucus “these are a few of my favourite things” scene gone horribly awry (that’s pronounced Ah-Rye and not AWE-REE btw) or some crazy “you got your chocolate in my peanut butter” commercial from the 80s. Or, or…

Okay. That’s enough bad and poorly constructed analogies to last a lifetime (besides I couldn’t come up with any more). At any rate, here it is in all it’s glory. A simple series of images combining a “few of my favourite things”:

The Muppets… and Serenity.

Stupid Super Hero Quiz

Yeah… It’s thursday and I’m bored. Deal with it.

You scored as Captain Jack Sparrow. Roguish,quick-witted, and incredibly lucky, Jack Sparrow is a pirate who sometimes ends up being a hero, against his better judgement. Captain Jack looks out for #1, but he can be counted on (usually) to do the right thing. He has an incredibly persuasive tongue, a mind that borders on genius or insanity, and an incredible talent for getting into trouble and getting out of it. Maybe its brains, maybe its genius, or maybe its just plain luck. Or maybe a mixture of all three.

I love that word. Namely because it contains the word moron, which in my eyes sums up a lot about many oxymoronic phrases/beliefs and ideas.

Today’s case in point, people who believe in “Intelligent Design”

I’m not even going to bother commenting on the article beyond my initial “morons!” comment. They don’t deserve better.

Your Own Personal Zen Garden

There is definitely something cool about playing in the sand. And it becomes even cooler when you realize you’re the only one playing and you have not just sand but a whole sandbox filled with oil, water, salt sand, fire and plant life…. Man, it’s like having your own personal six demon bag which as we all know is filled with the power of wind, fire, all that kind of thing.1

Go play. It’s extraordinarily addictive and time consuming.

You get what everyone gets…

… You get a lifetime.

I saw someone die today. Or as close as I think I ever want to be to it.

I was out driving around looking for work and ended up stuck in a traffic jam that was caused by a car accident on the road ahead of me. I’ve no idea how long before I got there the accident occurred but it couldn’t have been that long. From what I could see of the aftermath, I think one of the cars had tried making a left-hand turn across traffic and got t-boned. They either misjudged the distance, or the oncoming driver just didn’t see them. The police were on the scene and the ambulance had just arrived and traffic was slowly being redirected. As I was waiting for my turn to be detoured away I sadly had a fairly unobstructed view of the crash and watched morbidly as the paramedics and fire fighters pulled a bloody corpse from one of the vehicles. I have no idea if it was a man or woman as they draped a blanket over it and took it away fairly quickly.

I really don’t know how I feel about the whole thing. I’m still in shock and slightly sick to my stomach when I think about it.
