04/11/2007 06:19:53jim My sister is saving me.
She's trying to save me from Hell.
While her actions are noble, they aren't realistic.
Thats because I don't believe in Hell.
She repulsed me from any of the monotheistic beliefs (either of the Abrahamic, Jewish, Christian, or Islamic persuasions) with her evangelistic proselytisms, forty years ago.
She believes she's a devout Christian. She will do what ever her pastor tells her to do.
I owe a lot to my sister.
She inspired me to read the Bible at a very young age, just to verify half the things she dribbled out.
I doubt she really, really, read any of it. She just quoted it, out of text too, which is pretty meaningless.
Personally, and this is just my beliefs,
I think the notion of Hell should be sold with children's books, right next to the stories of Santa and the Easter Bunny.
I'd hope most people on this planet don't believe there's a red devil, with bull horns, cloven hoofs, and a pointy tail. That's just disfunctional. Nothing with hoofs has hands. LOL.
And whats with the pitch fork? Did he work on a farm? LOL.
Is that the best tool he could find to pitch bad people into hell with? LOL.
I would have used a hay bailer, but they weren't invented yet.
The devil looks like a character in a poorly written DC comic book and his concept just doesn't make any sense.
If this creature were born on a farm, it would be veal cutlets the next day.
The whole concept is just plain ol' dumb!
And I am sorry fo the adult who says these things to other adults, with either love or hate in their eyes.
They are the ones who are lost.
If you want to find god, just look in the mirror.
Figure out exactly what it is you see.
Maybe you'll see that we are devices, built from smaller devices, built from even smaller devices.
The more you learn, the more you'll realize that you don't know much at all, and that you can't quote god.
You are one of god's best works of art, not the other way around.
I would hope that someday, all religions could rejoice in their simularities and not their differences
If one religion has 8 gods, and another has 1 god, and yet another has a messenger, a god and a spirit,
they should all rejoice in that, because they all believe in a high power of some kind.

Thanks GMa for the sample!
It surely beats the heck out of paying another $800 for a doctor and coming out with 1 bottle of Albuterol (like I did).
Albuterol is better than Primatine Mist (which is bottled Epinephrine), but its not great.
Advair is Albuterol plus ipratropium bromide.

03/26/2007 18:58:50jim We stepped outside to see why the sunset looked re
Sure enough, there's a forest fire somewhere. I can smell it. Whats worse is, its toxic to me.
What gets me is, from a distance, you can clearly see an brownish orange cloud over Vegas.
I can feel it. My eyes, my lungs, my sinuses, even my skin can feel it.
People talk about it. IT EXISTS!!!
But the news doesn't say one darned word about it!
To me, that says the news isn't about reporting what we need to hear.
The news, instead, reports unimportant sensationalisms.
The news said earlier that 30,000 people die in Clark County each year from poisoning.
They were saying many of those died from mixing drugs.
SO, I did my own 7th Grade Math.
I figured there's 2,000,000 living people living in Clark County, and the average person lives for 75 years.
SO 2,000,000 / 75 = 26,000 people die in Clark County every year, and Channel 8 said 30,000 people die in Clark County from poisoning. Wow. Thats just bad math!
They're numbers could be correct, if the average life span in Clark County were something like 40 years old.

03/22/2007 09:22:54jim Thanks for the submission software, Rudy!
That looks like its going to work Great! Believe it or not, without almost any kind of search engine help, this sites makes about $50 a month, through ads.
I wish I had this software when I launched LVDude last February.
That was such a dud!!!
Thanks for Office 2007 software too!
I owe ya, dude.
You sound like the kind of guy I'd like to know. You know hardware and hacks, and I can write stuff like that calculator in a couple of hours (I'm the best programmer I know, haha).
You should register with this site.
You can do a heck of a lot more with it if you did. For one thing, the links you add to your menu will show up anywhere you go, even at a public library.
When are coming over?

About twice every minute, a bud seems to explode into a puff of smoke in our back yard.
This is going to be one heck of a sneezy season.
03/12/2007 10:46:28jim My Last Will
I am giving Sonny the properties and the truck. I'm giving Becky some money, and the car.
In the event, Sonny is not around, I would like Paul Spurling to be my executor, it should be extremely simple.
If he declines, Becky will be my executor.
I would like for my body to be donated to science. I do not want to be cremated. Thats would be a complete waste.
I have had several wills. This last one, of course will supercede them all. They are stored in my files under legal.
Time is running short for all of us.
I am not a doomsayer. But, we have had two world wars last century. Our weapons technology hopefully will never surpass our wisdom. However, waging war seems to be more of a business decision than a moral one to the powers that be. I would be surprised if civilization makes it through this century. It is a matter of time before some incredible bomb, bioweapon, or toxic substance is unleashed. The world has no shortage of stupidity.
I won't live to see it the end of this civilization..
At least, I hope not. My ex-wife, I would have thought , should have lived into her 70s. She's got months. I know my fuse is running short.
I know the technology for artificial lungs, and artificial bodies (body closets) was created in the 1950's.
The details should have been ironed out in 50 years. High school students should have been able to figure it out by now.
- If you supply the head with what it needs, it should live 100s of years. It has been done.
- If you bubble air through the blood, the blood will oxygenate. It has been done.
But for greed, power, or presevation of the endowed, we'll probably never know who has access to it, or if it even exist.
For whatever reason, preservation of life, any life, is not a priority to mankind. Life is easier to take than it is to preserve.
03/12/2007 06:10:45warren .Ive created a lot of interesting things.
Wowzer times like a million, you are one awesome dude. People should be raising eyebrows so much they have
sixpacks on their foreheads!! Seriously, youd be like a god in an Amish community, once the infuriatingly meddlesome
elders were out of the way ! Kudos to you .
03/09/2007 01:19:59jim Our first notary order came in tonight
It was 7pm, and it only took about 40 minutes.
I charged $20 since Becky and I are both (embaressingly) new to the notary field.
They must have found us in the yellow pages, somehow...
Whatever, I liked it A LOT!!!
The signer were a little crabby...they expected us to actually instruct them on how to fill out a Pensylvania Power of Attorney form. Wow..I could barely read it...haha.
I told them, as notary agents, our job was to simply verify, and optionally take an oath of a person signing a documents identity. That we weren't even supposed to read the document, and above all, we could not give legal advice.
Still, though, I gave my idea of what the form wanted. They thoroughly botched it. I think she may have typed it in!
Normally, whenever we get there, we would have charged $70 for the notary after 7pm.
