We've all had moments like these...

Personally I don't consider it to be a productive day if I haven't tackled or jump-kicked someone.

Monday, June 7, 2010


Life, as I once heard it, is like a box of chocolates. You basically go through the entire box trying to find one that tastes good only to decide that you should have saved yourself the 11.95, you spent on the box, and instead bought a snickers bar. Just think about it. It's deep.

Dear Monday, You Suck.

Well Monday comes but once a week. Usually I would be thrilled to finally reach that day, as it's my day off. But today was different. It started off good enough. Woke up at 9, ate breakfast, watched some tv, went to the store. But then things took a turn for the worse when I decided I needed to lube up my long board bearings. So I bought some "speed cream" from zumies (the only board shop in sandy). I got home and spent the next hour applying the speed cream carefully so that I could get optimal speed. Finally I completed the task and was ready to ride. I found an awesome hill, one that I had never gone down before. It was steep but usually that would be ok as long as there was room to ride it out. Well guess what? There wasn't room to ride it out. So I bailed. And my board kept going. Right into a curb. And before I knew it I was walking home with a busted board and a broken heart. :'(

The photos you see below are graphic, so if you have a weak stomach I would suggest finding another blog to waste your time looking at.

Although I do not put all the blame on you Monday, I do recognize your reputation of being the worst day of the week.

Thoughts: In the News

Found this one today. Apparently a kid electrocuted himself in shop class after his teacher said he'd buy him a soda to do it. The shock stopped his heart, sending him to the hospital where he was revived.

The reporter says the teacher stood just feet away from him when he did it. I can't believe what the world is coming to these days. Who would be dumb enough to stand only a few feet away from an electrocution? Does the teacher not realize that the electro current could have arced and passed on to him? I'm sure he would have felt pretty foolish if he was shocked as well, and on top of that he still would have had to buy the kid a soda! I guess that's why he's not a logic teacher. >:]

And what's the deal with this reporter. He's got such a self righteous attitude. Like he's never offered a can of soda to a kid to electrocute himself. Hypocrite. I think we should do a segment called "stuck up news reporter gets sucker punched in the face because he's a hypocrite." "And fat."

The Real Life Ringer? Naw It's Just Spain.

Here's a story I stumbled across the other day. reports,

"At the 2000 Paralympics Games in Sydney, Spain's basketball team marched to gold. But not long after their triumph, it was found that only two of the 12-man squad had mental disabilities. They were stripped of their medals"

When I first read this I was shocked that someone would actually stoop this low. I was reminded of the movie "The Ringer," played by Johnny Knoxville, where he pretends to be mentally handicapped in the special olympics to win a bet placed by his uncle. Awesome movie btw.

But is it awesome in real life? Maybe. I'm just not seeing 10 normal guys playing with 2 mentally challenged guys as sitcom material though. If I wanted to see that I could go watch any college basketball game. Now if 10 were mentally challenged and 2 were normal, that would be more interesting. It would be kinda like watching the Jazz play.

So no, this was not awesome to do in real life. But upon further research I found this. wikipedia says that "the IPC investigated the claims and found that the required mental tests, which should show that the competitors have an IQ of no more than 70, were not conducted by the Spanish Paralympic Committee."

Of course there were no IQ tests. I think it's common knowledge that all Spaniards have an IQ FAR below 70. So why would anyone even think about testing them?? It's a shame that they were stripped of there gold medals. You wouldn't steal honey from Winnie-the-Pooh. He would maul you to death. Likewise you never steal gold from a Spaniard or they will retaliate... By winning a whopping zero medals...

So today I salute you Spain. Even though no one has ever liked you, you still try. Kinda.
