You know what bugs me about reactions to Apple events? "Mueh the DickPad had it first so it's better mueh."

Like, I don't give a shit that you had it first on your DickPad. I don't own a DickPad. I own this. And I'm excited because THIS gets what YOU have. And that makes me happy. You should be happy that I get what you have too. So shut the fuck up.

So my girlfriend got me a massive bag of Swedish Fish. I've held on for long enough; tonight that thing is getting torn open...violently.

In starbucks and i see a guy dressed almost like a bum using what appears to be an Asus Android tablet, and he's using a pen with it. An old guy in here is using his iPhone to surf the web. Everyone's using next gen computers...and the guy who just walked in has an iPadas well. Dang...

So earlier this year the Department of Agriculture proposed new standards concerning the limiting of potatoes in school lunches and the defining of half-cup of tomato paste as a serving of vegetables (which is ludicrous in itself, but it gets better below). Sodium restrictions would have been in place and whole grains would have increased.

The spending bill released on Monday November 14, 2011 would block all of the above. School districts have called the USDA proposals too costly to implement, with the potato and pizza industries rallying against them as well.

Conservatives in Congress (and I'm sure a few Democrats as well) are saying the government shouldn't tell kids what to eat. Normally I fall into that line of thinking (I don't think the government should be telling me what to do), but when children aren't getting proper nutrition at home because of dumbass parents who fail at teaching their offspring proper eating habits and don't have any incentive to participate in a balanced diet, then something has to be done to help stem the epidemic of Type II diabetes and obesity in this country. It's a drain on the health care system and depletes the resources available to our nation's military.

Amy Dawson Taggart, director of the group Mission: Readiness (retired generals advocating for healthier school lunches), said in a letter to lawmakers before the final bill was released. "It doesn't take an advanced degree in nutrition to call this a national disgrace."

Any normal Joe without a degree should know that if you don't get proper nutrition in your body, it will poorly function. Now I may not have a Master's in Dietary Nutrition, but I do have a Bachelor's in Biological Sciences and can say that the effects of excess glucose, sodium and preservatives alone will wreck havoc on your body's pancreas, renal system and other aspects of your body, even possibly altering your DNA so you may pass those mutations down to your own children.

This is ridiculous. We need to be treating our future with a healthier environment to grow up in, encouraging a positive lifestyle and further education into academia and trade schools. The skilled laborer is disappearing, the educated are opposed, and progress is discarded in favor of higher profits and easier routes. I'm sick of it...

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars" is coming to Netflix this Friday. For the three of you who follow me and may be interested in seeing "The Lost Missions", here is a list of episodes that serve as a quick way to get through the series with the necessary information to make sense of the later stories.

19 - To Catch a Jedi - continue story arc
20 - The Wrong Jedi - conclude story arc

I skipped a few story arcs dealing with the bounty hunter Cad Bane  and a few others, but this should give a streamlined story to get through the series and to the really good episodes at the end that require knowledge of lots of characters to understand.

Jason Howell (raygun01) originally shared:
 
Ever since Amazon updated it's App Store app a few weeks back, something very annoying happens and we have an emailer to All About Android confirming that it's not just me.

If I've downloaded an app from the Android Market that I also have on my Amazon App Store account, the Amazon App Store will want to update the Android Market APK. There's no way to dismiss it for good, it will always see SwiftKey X in my app drawer and think that IT should be the one to update it.

For fun, I hit Install to see if the Amazon App Store version of SwiftKey X would overwrite the Android Market version. In the end, it didn't work saying "SwiftKey X was found on this device but it is not associated with your Amazon.com account. Remove and install the Amazon.com version?"

...OK, so... It doesn't automatically make changes which is nice. But if I choose NOT to remove and install the Amazon version, there's still no way to remove SwiftKey X from Amazon's watch list on my phone.

Anyone else experience this? Know a way around it?

So remember about 4 years ago when "The Clone Wars" was seen as mere children's entertainment? Well, as of tonight's episode, we've progressed into unbelievably dark territory. At this rate, the shadows of Order 66 are coming up quick...and it's almost justified at this point.

Yeah. They're getting ambitious with their ties to the 6 films too. There's an arc in the 3rd season that completely changes the motivations behind certain characters in Episodes III-VI.
