When browsing the Internet today, a large amount of information found is in blog sites or forums.  When I read this information, I realize that it is mostly unreliable information of people “talking out of their ass, because their mouth knows better;” but in this case, instead of speaking, people write horrible sentence fragments that even I, being not very good at grammar, can easily spot.  Even the spelling used and improper capitalization makes me not want to read it and discredit anything good that it may have to say.  It tends to be information very hastily thrown together with out any thought process and legitimate resources for the information given.

I chose this image because it makes rediculous things seem not so rediculous.  I always like when people take simple things like a common 8 hp snowblower and make it into a 300 hp V8 Ultimate snowblower.  When people do this, I think of myself and friends and know that someday we may do such a thing.

Victory! September 18, 2008

General George S. Patton, one of my favorite war heros and men alike, once said, “Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.”  He was a very wise and intellectual man who was a great influence on how World War II was fought.  He has been know to have said many famous and memorable words, these being just a few.  When you do not accept a challenge, you cannot have a victory, simply stated; when you do not challenge yourself, or others, there can be no victory and when there is no victory, no one has a great feeling of accomplishment.  As anyone knows, the ‘exhilaration of victory’ is an awsome feeling that boosts your moral and makes you do better and people around you to feel better and perform better.

Here’s a new word for ya, that I bet you’ve never heard before, tintinnabulation.  Tintinnabulation, pronounced: tin-tih-nab-yuh-LAY-shuhn, is a noun and refers to a tinkling sound, as of a bell or bells.  Tintinnabulation is derived from Latin, tintinnabulum “a bell,” from tintinnare from tinnire, “to jingle.”  Come Christmas time, you can hear tintinnabulation everywhere you go.

Unite September 11, 2008

For a Quote of the Week, I chose what Pink Floyd said in ‘Hey You,’ “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.”  I strongly agree with this statement because in all reality, it is the truth.  People who are united have a much stronger voice and ablity to make change.  When a group is divided, they are much easier to be over run by a stronger faction.  A really good example is Politics, which I will not get into, there is many groups, mainly 2 of them, who are always finding new ways to cut the other one down and push them away and not listen to what they have to say.  Instead they could be more civilized and not nessisarily join or like each other, but work together on some of the most pressing issues.

Superior: greater in quantity or amount.  The Great Lake to the north is Superior to all other lakes, it is an unmerciful being who has violent storms that swallow ships whole.  For example, she swallowed the Edmund Fitzgerald whole on November 10, 1975.
