Strange Things are Afoot at the Circle K.

Well, another day off, another day of doing fuck-all. At least I played Knights of the Old Republic for a few hours, instead of just sitting in front of the computer in a stupor like I have my last few days off. I should have mowed the lawn like my mom wanted, since my dad has hurt his back and can't mow it himself right now. I didn't though, becuase it's too damn hot. It's back up in the hundreds again, it got up to 80 degrees inside the house. Even now, at 11:30 at night, it's still 91 degrees with a heat index of 94 outside, and 77 in the house. Just shows what a person can get used to. Here people are happy because it's only going to be in the mid to high 90s instead of 100s the next few days. In France, they're not used to it, they have temperatures in the high 90s and occasionally 100, and thousands of people die. They're saying now the death toll in France alone could be anywhere between 10 and 15 thousand people. That's just ridiculous. Some toddler died in Texas today, or maybe it was yesterday, because his parents forgot and left him in the SUV for 8 hours. How could you forget your kid anywhere for 8 hours?

Here's a cool remark that was on a web page: "Remember, pornography is Satan's way of showing love-lorn losers what they're missing." That's so true. Maybe if I'd quit looking at porn so much, maybe I wouldn't be so fucking horny. Maybe if I'd finally go out and get some damn Zoloft, or whatever the hell it is, I could actually go out and get laid.

Here's a cool link, to a site about someone who's almost as big a loser as I am. The Star Wars Kid You've probably heard about the Star Wars Kid, almost everyone has, though I hadn't until recently. If you haven't, here's the back story. Some fat 15 year old geek was using the school's video camera for something, and then, in his spare time, he also taped a video of him twirling around with a stick, pretending he was in a light saber duel. He forgot to take that video out when he returned the camera, and his "friends" found it, and uploaded it on Kazaa. A couple of weeks later someone else reposted the video with full quality visual and sound effects. Now, there are many versions of the video going around, and the embarrassing video of this poor kid has been downloaded over 12 million times, making him the most downloaded male on the internet (the most downloaded female is Pamela Anderson, or something like that). Luckily, some people are trying to make it up to the kid, and have started a petition to get George Lucas to put the kid in Star Wars Episode III. The petition has over 64,000 signatures. Anyway, click the link and laugh at the fat kid's embarrassment.
