What religion should you choose?



This religion flow chart comes from Mock, Paper, Scissors.

Snow Day


Well a big storm has hit the Colorado front range. We woke up to somewhere around 3" of fresh white stuff and we're forecast to get between 10" and 18" for the rest of the day.

More traitorous rantings from the right

There is an interesting post over at Little Green Footballs surveying the secessionist sentiment over at Hot Air. A few select gems are posted below.

The severity of these traitorous rantings from the right never ceases to surprise. I'm reminded of the left's threat to leave the country over the second election of King George the Second (Bush 43), with one important difference. The left accepted the legitimacy of the election and wanted to protest it with their feet. They were taking their ball and going home. In contract, the far right, in the current case, refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the last election and responds with threats of violence. They seem completely incapable of accepting that they lost, and respond with violence to anyone who points out that they did. Not the most adult response out of the two.

One side note. I'm always amused by these sort of secessionist sentiments. The red states most likely to secede receive far more Federal tax money then they collect. They complain about taxes, yet they spend more than their share. I've said it before and I'll say it again, good riddance to them!

And if this thing passes, it’s on Mr. Rightisleft.
Millions feel just like me, and I’d sooner die a patriot, than a slave. And even if every one of us is killed… I will have considered it an honor to be dead amongst other like minded [sic] heros.

Secession and civil war are alternatives to this, and by god if those are the only options left… so be it, the democrats forced our hand.

[…]

The parasitic blue states will elect the public option and the red states will opt out. The left has now achieved exactly what it set out to do. They will reward their nanny state Marxist/leftist constituents and the parasitic underclass for faithfully voting for Democrats. We should take it one step further and completely redistribute the land mass and other resources so the two different and irreconcilable ideologies can go their separate ways never again to meet. The left can then build their ideal Marxist state and the rest of us can rebuild the greatest democracy and free market system ever known … and the sooner the better.


And haven't these idiots heard of spell checkers!

Drive like a drunk day


I've heard of talk like a pirate day, but who declared it drive like a drunk day and forgot to tell me? Coming in to work today I was continuously behind vehicles determined to touch the lane lines on both sides. Even more surprising, not one of those drivers had a cell phone. A first for Boulder drivers, who have them surgically implanted at birth.

One would think that legislation that punishes US contractors who protect employees who rape other employees would be a no brainer. Yet somehow the Republican members of congress voted unamiously to reject the proposal.

It's not the heat, it's the stupidity


It's not the heat, it's the stupidity was one of my favorite bumper stickers from New Orleans. But as the cartoon states, it's actually ignorance that is the problem. Poobah has a nice post about how willful ignorance (in the form of California state proposition 13) is bringing the Great State of California to its knees. Ironically, despite California's budget woes, other states insist on stumbling down the same path. The piped piper of lower taxes is just too strong.

Tricker Treats!

Costumes and paper cut-out witches are all well and good, but if you want to legitimately scare trick-or-treaters, why not surprise them with a pumpkin that moves around under its own volition?


Here's another great Halloween decoration idea.

First Snow Day of the season

We got a dusting of snow last night - about a half an inch accumulation. With the thin coating its not too picturesque, but My Vintage Cameras has some nice photos of the Flat Irons after a similar storm.

Posting will be light the next few weeks

As with a number of the blogs I've been following, my posting will be light the next few weeks since I've started a new job this week.

Most common passwords

Recently 10,000 Windows Live Hotmail accounts were cracked through phishing. What's most disturbing is that the most common password captured is the numerical string "123456". The second most common password is "123456789". I do wonder if this sample is significantly biased since it reflects the password choices of people who were successfully phished.
