Some fun useless trivia

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. 
Hardly seems worth it!

A pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes. 
In my next life I want to be a pig (How'd they figure this out, and why?)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. 

Still can't get over that pig.

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. 

Is that why Flipper was always smiling?

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do. 

If you're ambidextrous do you split the difference?

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated. 

From drinking little bottles of...? (Did taxpayers pay for this research??)

Who knew....? Who cares? How'd they find out, ask them?

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. 

What can be so tasty on the bottom of the pond?

A cockroach will live nine days without it's head, before it starves to death. 

Creepy...You've got to wonder about the sick sadist who found this out.

Life is all about....

Relationships come and go in our lives. Our hearts get touched by that one person and we feel happy. We feel loved. Yet the one person who you thought loved you....that one single person that you'd thought would be their no matter what simply leaves.......dumps you, making you feel like trash.
Sometimes you don't even know what to do with yourself. It feel lost and it's painful at times.

Sometimes things don't turn out as planned. Life never does.

We just got to see another day as a wonderful opportunity to make the next day a bright wonderful one. To make the best out of it. To get up the next morning and remember to breath.... to place one foot in front of the other and live again. To enjoy time with the coworkers we work with, and the classmates with go to school with. We got to turn to our family who is thier for us and our best friends we share our memories with. Those are the times that count. Those are the times that are special.

Be there for each other. Care for each other. Thats what life is all about right?

Seeing family and friends

Drove down to see family and friends in Snug Harbor yesterday. It was really nice. Stopped by first Angies & Kevins. Sams laptop screen was busted. I figured that. Dipshit probably thew it down on the floor when he got mad at Sami. But thats only speculation. The laptop will be easy to fix. Sams heart is what I worry bout.

She seemed like she was doing alright. I know shes been  stressed out. I mean after the breakup of her and Randy, getting this silly ass senior project done by Tuesday, worrying about graduation, working at McDonalds. The crap can pile up real quick. I told her what she really needs to do is concentrate on one thing... her future and what she wants to do after school. Thats all. She's got a bright future and I hope she makes the best of it. I told her everything else is just a few potholes in the road. Randy doesn't help. His true colors came out the other day. The guy is an ass. One less complication for Sami. She's not even family and I worry bout her, but I know she'll do great.. she's got the stamina and will to go the distance and make the best out of her life :-D

Becky, Jim and the family are doing good. Although I'm guessing Becky is back on the meds. Thats not good and it really bothered Vicky. I wonder who filled the scripts up? I would have refused... Becky doesn't need that crap.... she needs to be active, around the house... spending time with Trudy and Bri. They need her... the last thing Becky needs is those stupid meds! Trudy has strep throat... poor girl... it was so bad she was bleeding in the back of her throat! Anyways... she should be on her antibiotics today.

Kinda pissed at my niece though. I read a comment on FB that she wrote. "A hoe will be a hoe" and it really pissed me off because I know who she was talking about. But the ironic thing is she got really hurt when she was called that by Julia just a few weeks ago. The LAST thing she should be doing is calling someone else that. WTF?? She knows it hurt a really sweet kid who didn't deserve that. The more I think about it the more I'm pissed!! Guess my niece is a real hypocrite. Now I realize why all the fukin drama these kids go through... they make it on their own.

Why do I care?

So someone asked me the other day... why do you even get involved with these kids? Why do you even bother?
Two reasons. Because of what they're going thru now, a
nd, because I've seen it before 7 years ago with my own daughter and friends.

I've seen a 13 year old girl get hit, verbally abused, and pushed by her mom, start to cut herself and try to runaway. I've seen a 16 year old get involved with drugs, and a 15 year old become pregnant and become a mom in high school. (she has a 5 years old daughter now)

One of Trudys friends parents are divorced, lives with her Mom and lets he daughter hang out till 10 at night (at 11 years old!). Another girl saw her own mother get killed by her father when she was 7. One girls mom has mental issues and has had to go thru psyc treatment when she through a large book at her own daughter.  Another kiddo who live in Chesapeake had her father die last year from cancer.

It can be soo tough for these kids when life blindsides them and hits them hard. But then they get more drama piled onto thier plate like relationships, BF's, GF's, breakups, arguments between best friends, grades, classes, EOG tests. Sometimes it seems like it doesn't stop. 

So thats why I care about them..... thats why I get involved. I know I can only help so much. I know that...because I'm not family....that I'm just an "Uncle" to some of them....I can only guide them and give em pointers in relationships, and in school. But I do it because I'm a dad and an uncle myself...... and they have a bright future ahead of them.

It's been a decent week

So ALOT went on these past few days. Becky stopped using and threw away all her medications. Now she's up, alert, and has never felt better. I love it.. I can talk to her and have a good conversation on the phone. Trudy and Bri are really happy right now. 

An English commoner got married to a prince. Kate and Williams wedding seemed to go off really well. William seemed to be gushing at Kate and she looked beautiful. 

And last night, the head of a worldwide terrorist organization was shot and killed. Osama Bin Laden was shot and killed by navy seals in Abbottabad, Pakistan

Alot of people are relieved and are happy, but the thing is he was only one man, and the organization still exists.

New phone

So we decided it was time to switch phone carriers as we were getting tired of AT&T ripping us off with all the hidden surcharges and move over to Verizon. We all got Android phones which is smart. I don't think I'll ever buy a Windows Mobile phone again.

 I like the idea of open source, and with all the apps in the Market, you can't go wrong. Anyways I got a Motorola Devour. It's a great phone in a lightweight rugged aluminum case, nice slide out keyboard, 3.5in capacitive touch screen, 3mp camera. The screen is very responsive as far as touch is concerned but sluggish when you turn the phone over to landscape mode.

There's two things I hate bout this. The cheesy 3mp camera is sub par for photos. The phone was just released last year in February, yet Motorola has now discontinued it as of March 10th. Why? And to top it off it's running Android 1.6 (Donut) and when I tried to upgrade to 2.2 I can't. It seems as though Motorola pulled the plug on this one. But I love the ruggedness and feel to the case.

I'm debating whether I should return this for a Droid or not. :-)
