He Whom The Gods Wish To Destroy, First Makes Angry

I’ve got an angry streak. There’s just no denying it. I’ve tried and tried to overcome it, I’ve prayed and prayed for God to lift it from me. But I never have gotten over it.

The best I was ever able to do was to try and control my behavior that resulted from my being angry. Unfortunately, that method of “control” has a huge flaw; I wasn’t doing anything about the anger.

I suppose it could be said that modifying my behavior was a bit like dumping oatmeal in your car’s radiator when it has a hole in it. Sure, the oatmeal might keep Continue reading

New Facebook Profile Fun

As is standard practice when any website changes anything, there has been a lot of grumbling regarding Facebook’s recent changes to profile pages. I just can’t wait for the “1 Million Facebook Members Against the New Profile Page” fan page!

But, as with all horribly bad things in life that lead us to join a Facebook group in protest, there is a silver lining. After reading an article on 10 Creative Uses of the New Facebook Profile, I decided to do a little tinkering myself: Continue reading

Stu The Wise for President: Round 2

Some of you may recall my run for the Presidency in 2008. That did not turn out so well. One of my major blunders was entering the race too late.

Well, I am nothing if not a learner from my past foolishnesses. Therefore, I have begun my campaign for the 2012 election a little early.

If you’d like to support me, please send $730 million my way. That should practically Continue reading

Effects of Mass Twittering on the Space-Time Continuum: The Relation Between Black Holes and the Twitterverse

On August 27, 2009, I pondered, “What would happen if I really tweeted the way that Twitter haters say all tweeples tweet?” Following that, I announced my intention to, “…do it as an experiment starting tomorrow.”

At 22:28 that same night I stated, as a warning, “Alright my friends and followers, my tweeting-like-a-real-twerson(???) experiment begins tomorrow morning. It’s gonna get nasty!”

A cousin of mine and FaceBook friend, John Lisonbee, commented on my above statement with, “Nasty, or just twittery?” to which I replied, “Twisty maybe?”

The morning of August 28, 2009 the grand experiment began. My intention: cause the creation of a Continue reading

How to Save $93 Million Tax Payer Dollars

So with all the talk about tough economic times and the government spending money like the end of the world is nigh upon us, I pondered ways for the government to save money.

Some of the ideas included things like buying hammers for $12 at Home Depot instead of $12,000 from the guy with the lucrative government contract. But I think my best idea came when I discovered a way to save taxpayers $93,090,000 per year.

That’s what you might call “life changing money.”

We have 535 members of Congress (100 senators and 435 members of the House of Representatives) that supposedly are representing us, the people. They each receive a salary of $174,000. I propose that we Continue reading

Another Jacked Up Chain Letter

Those who know me know I hate chain letters. And not just the ones that try and scam you out of money. I hate them ALL!

Usually, I just ignore them. But every once in a while, I’ll shoot a little something back. That was the case with this chain letter (which I actually got about a year ago). First, the chain letter, then my response.

How old is Grandpa or Grandma?

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events. The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

The Grandfather replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before: Continue reading

No Rights for Non-Humans!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 20 years, you know of the arrival of the non-humans, the annexation of District 9 in South Africa, and slow-moving attempts to “safely assimilate” non-humans into human society and culture.No Rights for Non-Humans

This may all seem fine and dandy on the surface. However, there has been a growing movement to provide equal rights and opportunities to non-humans and to fully integrate them into Continue reading

To Die in the Service is to Die With Honor

There are still a few of us that believe that to die in the service of your country is to die with honor. We believe that because when a person has enough honor within themselves that they voluntarily choose to serve their country, they are serving much more than just their country… they are serving the people — every man, woman, and child — of their country.

For those who died, I can only hope that I’ll some day make it to heaven myself so I can thank you proper.

What’s the Definition of Insanity Again?

Something about doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results, right? Somebody should have told a certain Michigan teenager.

UPI recently reported that a teen in Kalamazoo was arrested for marijuana possession. So the cops hauled him in and later released him on $100 bail. In his brilliance, the kid went back to the exact same spot where he was arrested and — no joke — started rolling himself a marijuana joint.

In his defense though, the kid did do something a little different. He was packing a little crack the second time around. Didn’t help change the outcome though. He was arrested again and hauled in for possession of marijuana, crack cocaine, and violating bond.

Geniuses. They’re everywhere!
