“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” -Buddha

Typing Test

I don't know why but today I took a typing test. It consisted of 3, 2 minute rounds.  The result after each one was evaluated individually and adjusted for errors then averaged I have a typing speed of 55 words per minute. Not bad for someone that never took a typing class.

George Carlin

Tonight I watched George Carlin receive the Mark Twain award for Comedy Posthumously.  His genius was obvious and I can say very little about him that has not already been said.  He was a Jester, a Fool, and a buffoon by medieval standards. In our society we have come to value and praise the fool, though this has taken some time.  We saw George for what he was a generous, intelligent, charismatic and funny person.

After George Carlin found out he was going to receive the Mark Twain Award he started preparing his speech and this quote was found by his daughter among his notes.

"I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes"

-- Henry David Thoreau, Walden


And finally to paraphrase Lewis Black, "Now that you're gone George, the world is a less funny place"

Imagine

Imaging for one second that you were a Palestinian in 1945. You made it through WWII and you and your family had a home and were preparing to move on after the war. Both the Jews and the Muslims are idiotic in their rhetoric and both are very much at fault for the conflict that is occurring daily in the region. We must not forget that neither is without blame, both have shown themselves to not be worthy of the others trust.

Awesome Filth

So Durex made this commercial. It's so filthy and yet totally awesome! Thought I'd share.
