Running out of Gas

I've only ran out of gas a couple of times but I thought I would share my story with The Morning Zoo when they were talking about it.

Weekly Secret

This is my weekly choice from Post Secret.
It really made me wonder why people can't just be nice to others just because it feels good to be nice to people...

I lose

I recently started playing THE GAME with some of my co workers....

The Game is an ongoing mind game, the objective of which is to avoid thinking about The Game itself. Thinking about The Game constitutes loss, which, according to the rules of The Game, must then be announced. The Game is continuous—once a player stops thinking about The Game, they stop losing.

The Rules
1. Everyone in the world is playing The Game. (Sometimes narrowed to: "Everybody in the world who knows about The Game is playing The Game."[2], or alternatively, "You are always playing The Game.")

2. Whenever you think about The Game, you lose.

3. Losses must be announced (a statement such as "I just lost the game" is often used).

As a variation, some players allow a grace period after they have lost once, during which a player cannot lose The Game again or is not obligated to announce a loss. This can range from just a few seconds to half an hour.



Good morning world!

Boggle Me Thursday - #1

I've never played boggle before but I thought it would be fun to try since "There are no points. No winners. No losers. This is strictly for sharpening our skills and for fun!"

I got these words... Hopefully I will get better each week.

Proposition 8

Normally you won't see me post things that are political in nature but I have to post something about this because I am so enraged by the situation....

Proposition 8 was a California State ballot proposition that amended the state Constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman. It overrode a recent California Supreme Court decision that had recognized same-sex marriage in California as a fundamental right. The official ballot title language for Proposition 8 is "Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry." The entirety of the text to be added to the constitution was: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." (Source)

I have to start this off by saying that my views on this issue are not based on weather I agree with the homosexual lifestyle or not.... This is solely based on my feelings as a human being. I think that the passing of Proposition 8 was horrible and a step backwards.

I love my wife with every fiber of my being and I would be so horribly upset if I was gay, my wife was a man, and they told me I couldn't marry him. People say that marriage is between a man and a woman, but I still don't understand. Why is it okay for a man and woman who don't love each other to be married? Why can two straight people enter into a marriage of convenience so they can benefit from health or financial perks? BUT TWO HOMOSEXUAL HUMAN BEINGS WHO LOVE EACH OTHER CAN'T... WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!?!?!?!?!?!

It seems like some people in a minority take things to an extreme and it stops being about fighting for their rights, and it becomes fighting to have more rights than others. That is bad, but this isn't one of those cases. The people who were against Proposition 8 were fighting for EQUAL RIGHTS.

Now on to something else that has been annoying me about this situation. Being in Utah it seems that I am hearing lots about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and their involvement in this. Many people are saying that the Mormon church is solely responsible for this Proposition passing, which I think is a load of crap.... You can't tell me that 52% of voting Californians are Mormon. Now people are protesting against the Mormons, which is their right, but they are breaking windows in churches, antagonizing members as they try to attend church, etc...

*Sigh* People suck sometimes...

Well now that I got these thoughts out of my head I can move on with my day.
