On a lighter note…


Living in Korea and especially teaching ESL, one has to endure some rather strange, let’s say ‘adaptions’, of the English language. However, I just hope my students are paying more attention to me than to the pop music they listen to!

An excerpt.

And I'm so damn hot, they call me vampire.

‘Bout time somebody did…


Japan is planning to spend $9 billion on a massive space elevator to lift people and objects into orbit.

UPDATE

Of the many challenges, one of largest is finding a cable that can support the carriage, which must be “180 times stronger than steel”, according to Yoshio Aoki, director of the Japan Space Elevator Association.

While it still feels a bit farfetched, Japan is a fine place to attempt the project. As the Times points out, Japan is “a global leader in the precision engineering and high-quality material production without which the idea could never be possible.”

– National Post

A tough challenge, for sure, but one surely worth attempting.

Huh?

Only One Possible Title for This Post: For Fuck’s Sake


This is really and truly unbefuckinglievable. There’s an abject idiot at Politico named Scott Lilly(-Liver) who actually thinks he understands why Sarah Palin was away from the Alaska State Capitol so much: She was playing hookey from her Governorship, and bagging the big bucks doing it.

Hey Scott, take a look at this, you fucking moron.

Alaska, USA, Coastal Plane

Alaska, USA, Coastal Plane

Any more bright ideas, asswipe?

Best. Obituary. EVER.


Well, it is.

DOUGLAS — A celebration of life for James William “Jim” Adams, 53, will be held at a later date.

He died Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008 at Memorial Hospital of Converse County in Douglas.

Jim, who had tired of reading obituaries noting other’s courageous battles with this or that disease, wanted it known that he lost his battle. It was primarily as a result of being stubborn and not following doctor’s orders or maybe for just living life a little too hard for better than five decades.

He was born June 8, 1955 in Garrison, N.D. the son of James William and Ruby Helen (Clark) Adams.

He was sadly deprived of his final wish, which was to be run over by a beer truck on the way to the liquor store to buy booze for a date. True to his personal style, he spent his final hours joking with medical personnel, cussing and begging for narcotics and bargaining with God to look over his loving dog, Biscuit, and his family.

He would like to thank all “his ladies” for putting up with him the last 30 years.

During his life, he excelled at anything he put his mind to. He loved to hear and tell jokes and spin tales of grand adventures he may or may not have had.

He is survived by five sons, Jeremiah Adams and his wife, Nicole, Mica Olivas, Wade Olivas, Brice Simpson and Cole Adams; sister, Jerri Giegerich; two ex-wives, Vickie Harrison and Marilyn Williams; four grandchildren; two nieces; and two great-nieces.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother-in-law.

In lieu of flowers, he asks that you make a sizeable purchase at your favorite watering hole, get rip roaring drunk and tell the stories he no longer can.
