Some people just can't have a simple debate.

What started out as an objective debate ended abruptly in a juvenile manner. The topic of debate: Banning of books after the book The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure was published. {I do not support the subject matter of the book. But starting a government imposed ban on any book starts treading on murky waters.}

Why? Suddenly the fact that I do not believe in god made what was a good objective debate turn sour. Just because I have no belief in a god means I can no longer debate? Well what about what I said before you found out I was a godless heathen? It was taken into account and a rebuttal was made. But now that you find out I am not a believer of a god I am not worth the time of day?

Well at least the debate didn’t end because I was a woman right?

Shame, shame, shame I know your name!

Recently I had the wonderful privilege of being told I was "ashamed" and "embarrassed". Let's examine these two words, shall we? Yes, lets. After you my dear.

Ashamed: feeling shame or guilt or embarrassment or remorse.

Embarrassed: made to feel uncomfortable because of shame or wounded pride; abashed: feeling or caused to feel uneasy and self-conscious.

Wikipedia says this: "Embarrassment is an emotional state experienced upon having a socially or professionally unacceptable act or condition witnessed by or revealed to others. Usually some amount of loss or honour or dignity is involved, but how much and the type depends on the embarrassing situation. It is similar to shame, except that shame may be experienced for an act known only to oneself. Also, embarrassment usually carries the connotation of being caused by an act that is merely socially unacceptable, rather than morally wrong."

“Ah you know just catchin’ some rays, soaking in the water. Just another day at the office. You know.”

Maths


Math is not my strong suit but I can understand a concept when it is explained once maybe even twice. Verizon on the other hand has issues... poor mathematically challenged Verizon.

XMas gift for my mister.


I wanted to wrap a mystery XMas present at work today. So… the present was in the trunk of my car but I failed to bring the wrapping paper. OH NO!!!!! What to do?!

Maximum PC to the rescue!

I went through two back issues of Maximum PC that were begging to be recycled and I single handedly saved the planet and wrapped the mystery gift of doom! Yes. I know. I am pretty damn awesome. OSSIM!


**Edit: Now that Christmas is over I got him a new graphics tablet. He loves it!
