No Room for Discussion

Since this is my own personal little soapbox from which I proclaim the things I think and believe, I thought I would post the best music video ever. Period. End of Discussion.

Joke Fodder

I heard something on the radio today that will most likely make me lose sleep thinking up jokes about it for at least the next week. What could it be you ask?

How about a movie version of 21 Jump Street? Yep, that classic **snark** TV series from the 80's will be the next piece of dren to be cranked out by Hollywood.

My first thought was WHAT?!?!? Followed closely by OMFG NOOOOOOOOO!!!

I think that if we put all the movie people in one room with an infinite number of chimpanzees typing on an infinite number of typewriters, the odds of an original thought being developed into anything resembling a good film would only be slightly better than the odds of that same combination finding a cure for the common cold.

Oh well. If you're truly interested in the story here's a link.

Another Unintended Consequence

I ran across a story on the intranet at my office that I thought I would share with you all. It's the kind of thing that everyone could benefit from, so please share it with as many folks as possible.

Meth critters are using the exchangeable propane tanks to hold the anhydrous ammonia that they use in the manufacture of their drug of choice. They rent them, empty them and return them when they are done. The ammonia is extremely corrosive and weakens the steel in the tanks. When the tanks get refilled and the propane mixes with the left-over ammonia in the weakened tank, bad things happen.

There will be a tell-tale greenish corrosion on the valves. If use these services, please check the tanks before you tank them for that greenish corrosion and if you see it ask for another tank.

I would just use my own tank and have it refilled at a propane station.

If you'd like the read the alert from the National Propane Gas Association you can find it at the link below.

Could it be a Sign?

I had to go get a new chair for the old computer desk today. Why?? Because the hydraulic cylinder on my old one burst. I know I could have gotten another cylinder, but the foam was pretty well destroyed and the fabric smelled like old shoes....maybe I should get up out of my chair more.

That chair was a replacement for one that I broke while leaning back. I miss that chair..it was very comfortable, but it was one of those that the back bolted directly to the seat instead of being held on by the arms. I leaned back one night and broke the fittings that were embedded into the plywood base...and sheared the head off of one of the bolts.

As I look back on this, I think it is a sign that maybe...just maybe...I need to shed a few pounds....

NAH!! Must be inferior quality merchandise. Now if you'll excuse me there is a chocolate cream pie in my refrigerator that needs my attention.
