Robots 

A little info: robots are here to kill. We only think they are helping us now, but soon we will find missing metal plates in our cars and homes. Nuts and bolts will be lost, and no one will know the cause. They will come with burning fire and destroy the world.

Charging his phaser, 01001 switched into kill mode. His visual receptors locked onto his target, and BAM, he killed your mom!

That's what the future will be like. I'm scared, and you should be too.

That's why I've decided to invest in organic foods. Organs are the only way to stop these unstoppable killing math machines. Harvest your organs, and join us today at "Organs for the Destruction of Electronically Advanced Robots."

Remember that loud sound you hear at night when you live by the highway? Those aren't cars, THEY'REKILLERROBOTSWAITINGFORTHEIRCHANCETOKILLYOU.

The Wrong Time 

The ideas that I have to write about couldn't have come at a worse time. I still have a lot (relatively) to write about, but I'm taking a break from internet type things. I will try to write down what I have somewhere else then post it here eventually.

That's it.

About Blogging 

Sorry to disappoint anyone out there waiting on the edge of his seat for my next post. I've been like a dry well for my lack of ideas. I assure everyone that my roots have dug a little deeper all because of recent progress that only one person will know about, and I have many more ideas now. New blogs soon.

The Deepness of Anger 

I was thinking the other day about the goings on in this world (which I normally do), and I came to an interesting conclusion.

There are a lot of angry people out there waiting and hoping for something new to protest, slander, and joke about. Why, I asked myself, do people find it necessary to slam anything and everything that happens? Whether it is politics, movies, music, TV, or Internet, there will always be at least one person sneaking his way through the tall grass, and hiding in the deep recesses of the Internet ready to pounce on the issues.

While I agree that some things should be put down, everything does not need to be "flamed." The reason for this is that most people believe that by being angry and stating the other side of the issue, they become "deep." What they do not know, however, is that people who are already "deep" understand the other side of the issue, and have already made an intelligent decision based on researched information. These "flamers," as I will call them, can range from the average Joe to a celebrity or political figure, and will state their ignorant opinions to a toaster, if it would listen.

Being angry does not make one "deep." Being angry only makes one angry.

Living For the Weekend 

I've found out what that phrase means, and I'm not too happy about it. It means that I don't have a lot of time to do what I want during the week, and when the weekend comes it's packed full of everything.
I'm a man who really wants to go back to school. I can't wait for next semester.

In the Works 

Ok, sorry for the long delay, I've been busy doing nonsense, and making up new boardgames that are more awesome than the couch I'm sitting on right now.

I've been thinking up a new blog, and I'm not sure how long it will take to actually write it down. First I need people to not come over every day, and second I need to just do it.

I might even put it down tonight. Until next time

I'm also working on giving a new face to this site. This will come sometime soon I hope.

I'm out

The Chinese Strike Again 

Where I work there is a Chinese woman who I often ask to translate ridiculous phrases. Today I was looking for something that would be hilarious to tattoo onto one's body, but ended up having a small revelation.

I asked her how the phrase "holy crap" would be written in Mandarin. Of course she did not understand the phrase, and I attempted to explain the meaning of holy (pure etc.) and crap (that was a little awkward). Eventually she understood and wrote down the translation. I moved on, asking about "doctor love" which I also had to explain (quite a bit more awkward). Eventually she began showing me that to make one word or phrase in Mandarin one puts two characters together that already have meaning. Here is an example: "doctor love" is made by putting the "flower" (the word for woman appropriately) character together with the "heart" character (this means the same as "lady's man"). Most translations apparently are not direct, and only hold the same idea as the English sentence.

Then I asked her to explain the two characters in "holy crap." The first symbol is the symbol for the word "God." She showed me that the symbol for "people" is just two lines away from being "God." Take the symbol for people, add one line in the middle, and the word "strong" is made. Add another line over the whole symbol, and the word is "God." The way she explained it is perfect.

"People cannot be bigger than God," she said as I rushed around the office trying to control everything and everyone.

There I was in the middle of thinking "I have the power (He-Man style)," and, boom, I'm hit with this. God works in mysterious ways.
