Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Homo ignorantes & Natural Gas Outage Outrage Without Gauge

"Homo sapiens", our genus and species designation means "wise man". I think all the senseless slaughter by religious zealots indicates there is a new species: "Homo ignorantes"

Last night I was watching the news on a local channel that had a contest for guessing the amount of total snowfall for Amarillo TX for the last several months. I believe it was like October through February, and they announced the "winner", the person who had guessed the closest amount to the official amount of snowfall. BUT... I thought to myself, hold it, today is the 27th, aren't there 28 days in this February? Isn't there one more day of February ...AND... this is reaLLy important, it's snowing right now and more is coming tomorrow when it is stiLL February?


I think Rudy Giuliani has proven that people who are 70 should retire by 69 just before insanity kicks in. You shouldn't have a national debate that sounds like sleep deprived 5 year olds arguing or The Smothers Brothers "Mom liked you best" routine.


I just found out they are soon turning the LHC at CERN back on with vast improvements. I think they must now rename the LHC to the Larger Hadron Collider.


If you name a building 'Torch' and then it catches on fire, should you be surprised? The Arabic word for 'NO!!!!' is لا !!!!


From Feb 19th: My wife paid our natural gas bill over the phone while talking to a gas company representative a couple days ago but the company applied it to the wrong account, our business downtown, and they turned off the gas to my house! I was even home at the time of the disconnection and no one bothered to knock on my door or called my phone. We found out about it informally from our friend at the gas company.

And I usually pay the gas company several months at a time (ahead) because they have an outrageous $1.50 extra charge for making a payment, which amounts to $18 a year if you make monthly payments. So I am usually several hundred dollars AHEAD at any random moment with the business account.

I am glad I wasn't in the middle of cooking lasagne when they turned it off.

Hah! What idiots. They actually physically removed the meter instead of just turning a valve and locking it out.

Its not like we were going to skip town suddenly, we have been paying a gas bill for 30 plus years.

BUT they were going to wait until next week to schedule getting our gas turned back on! After two furious phone calls my wife strongly indicated that it was entirely their fault and a supervisor finally & wisely agreed with her.

After about an hour we were back in gas.


Watching Breaking Bad Randomly

I am using a random number generator in order to select random seasons and episodes to watch Breaking Bad in 4K from Netflix.

Netflix only has a choice of 13 items, movies and tv shows to watch, so it is not worth paying eXtra for at the moment.

Not much else is happening right now eXcept that my wife decided to add a floral shop to our business, which I think wiLL be veRy synergistic with what we already have going. I believe she has finaLLy fiLLed up our building.

Sometime in the near future I plan to get a Raspberry Pi 2 computer and play with it. For now I am studying it when I take a break from biochemistry, my first love.
