Computer Viruses want your Money!

Wow, this is an interesting evolution in computer viruses (details here). A new trojan virus holds your pc ransom until you wire transfer money to the creator of the virus.

Apparently this happened before. Not a good trend.

To counter this, I am going to have figure how to wire transfer ants to virus makers...

Spanish National Anthem -Huh?

I didn't realize the official language of this country had changed. Some people have put togehter a spanish version of the National Anthem (details here).

IMF takes on new role

You gotta love the comments the IMF made about the US healthcare system. They even talked about our school systems.


I thought IMF stood for "International Monetary Fund". Aren't they supposed to be monitoring money?

If I were President I would tell the IMF...

On second thought, I am not going to go there... my kids read this blog.

Do they just want to be smacked?

I can hardly believe the headline today about Iran. You can read the full story here. To summarize, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Israel will be annihilated by "one storm."

Ok, so how can a leader of ANY country say that in public and not expect Israel and it's allies to attack it? If I were President, I would be very busy right now deciding how to attack them.

Uggghh... Why???

And really, does anyone believe there is a real chance for peace in the middle East without war? Let's see, Iran wants to annihilate Israel. The Palestians voted in Hamas (who want to annihilate Israel).

Ummm... I think it's time to send in the ants...

Global Cooling???

Rat's! Apparently I won't be able to use global warming as an execuse any more. The global temperatures have actually been decreasing over the last 5 years. See this article for the truth.

Next thing you know they are going to tell us that it is safe to eat chicken again...

This land is my land, this land is your land

This land was made for you and me the government and rich land developers...

Reading articles like this make me seriously think about getting into politics. I don't really plan on running for President, but man does this kind of thing make rethink that. The government needs to stop taking away people's land.

If I were President I may not be able to stop the government from annexing land for ridiculous reasons, but I sure would try.

So, we went to my niece's birthday party in Conroe last night and it was a lot of fun. It was at this place that was sort of like Chuck E Cheese's , except that the pizza was served buffet style and in addition to video games, they have bumper cars, go carts, bowling and putt-putt golf.

Now, while it was a lot of fun I am SOOOO Sleepy. The first person up in our family this morning was John Victor (who just turned one a week ago). I think the rest of us were thinking that noon might be a good time to wake up.

I am fairly sure that Daylight Savings is causing part of the problem, it always does. If you are a long time reader, then you already know my opinion on daylight savings time. If not read here, here, here, and here.

Now, it's time for some coffee...

Don't worry a CAR RAN OVER MY FOOT

Go here and then scroll down about halfway to question 1534. Basically, this person's child had two reactions to a vaccine and he/she was concerned about getting more vaccinations for their child. The response was along the lines of "it couldn't be the vaccine".

It reminds me of the story I wrote about the "car running over my foot".

Just to refresh your memory here is a snippet from that post:

Patient: "Doctor my foot really hurts, because that car ran over it a couple of hours ago. Can you tell me what's wrong with it?"

Doctor: "According to the X-Rays you have three broken toes and some torn ligaments. But I don't believe it was the car's fault. I think you must have hurt it some other way."

Patient: "But doctor the CAR RAN OVER MY FOOT, and right after that my foot was throbbing in pain."

Doctor: "Yes, but statistically speaking cars don't cause foot injuries. I am pretty sure your foot hurts because someone stepped on it or maybe you stepped on an uneven surface after the car ran over your foot."

Patient: "It's got to be the car, nobody stepped on my foot! A CAR RAN OVER IT!"

Doctor: "There's just no way that a car running over your foot could have caused those broken toes. I have never seen that happen before. I am sure it must have been something else. You probably stepped on your own foot without realizing it."

Patient: "Arghhh!"


In other words, question 1534 could have read like this:

Patient: A car ran over my foot.

Doctor: Oh, it looks fine to me, but just in case you should see a specialist. That will be $75.

Patient: A car ran over my foot.

Specialist: It doesn't look like it to me, I think you are just fine. That will be $500 please.

My Secret Life

Well, it's about time I let the cat of the bag.

If you have been reading this blog for any lenght of time, you might think that the person who writes this is blog is some sort of Alien or something. Well, I am not exaclty an Alien, but...

I am from Atlantis!

Yes, I was born in Atlantis.

Now, if I run for President I am not sure that I can become President, being from Atlantis and all. Maybe they can overlook that one little fact.

Oh, and Atlantis isn't all it is cracked up to be. I mean sure there's lots of water and the people are nice, but the technology is not so advanced as one might think.

So anyway, I am an Atlantean and I can prove it.

Just check my birth certificate. It says, George Brian Manty... born in Atlantis, Florida.
