Losing Yemen

With the country in chaos, the U.S. cannot account for guns, vehicles and other equipment, amid fears that it is at risk of being seized by rebels or al-Qaeda, according to officials.

Don't you just hate it when you about three paragraphs into a comment and you reach for the shift key and you fat finger the Ctrl key and a whole new goddamm window loads? Grr!

Ctrl-N seems to be the culprit. If I was a engineer for a social network, I would disable all shortcuts that refreshed or otherwise loaded a new page while the comment box was active. It would save a lot of frustration, I bet.

No mention on how bad the content sucks

Most of the programming is bad enough, but seeing how, in many cases, commercials are 50% or more of the content, someone needs to pull their media heads out of their asses and smell the napalm in the air. People will watch TV if they like what's on it; if they don't like what's on it; they wont watch.

Although some of the ratings declines can be blamed on changes to Nielsen’s measuring methods, among other changes, “we believe these terrible ratings trends are also indicative of changing viewership habits,” he wrote.

Change out the word "habits" with "choices" and i think they might be on to something. Over saturate me with crappy commercials and i wont watch your channel, whether broadcast TV, Cable, Internet, or whatever. I don't want to watch your crap.

Senator Abuse?

Hmm. I guess we now have a clue as to who has been beating the crap out of Harry Reid!

#Waronmen  

If there is a WarOnMen hashtag already, it does not autosuggest. IMO, every hashtag for #WarOnWomen   should be renamed WarOnMen, because that's actually what is going on. Conveniently, there is no data for women in this so-called study, most likely because the author is an avowed feminist.
Men who regularly posted photos of themselves online scored higher on a measure for narcissism and psychopathy.

Is the catfish new as in newly discovered, or newly evolved?
 
From Brazil: a new species of armoured suckermouth catfish named after Greedo from Star Wars Episode IV!

An Auburn University professor believes he has discovered a real species that could be the origin of the fictional "enigmatic" Star Wars character Greedo.

Jonathan Armbruster, a biological sciences professor and curator of fishes for the Auburn University Museum of Natural History, has brought a lot of attention to a previously unknown species of catfish by naming it with the pop culture reference.

A group of researchers found the suckermouth armored catfish, Peckoltia greedoi, in 1998 at the Gurupi River in Brazil. Armbruster told the Daily News he first examined the species in 2005 and eventually concluded it was in fact a unique species last fall.

Is The American Conservative actually conservative? From what I understand, its former editor, Scott McConnell, supported Obama. Big Red Flag, right there.

Some headlines from TAC:

American Sniper’s Myths and Misrepresentations
Another Reason to Be Grateful That Romney Isn’t President
Is the Libertarian Moment Over?
The Senate GOP’s Obnoxious Iran Letter

Pfft! Reads like CNN or MSNBC

+Don Callaway Okay. I am also too old. And while I cannot verify your story, I'll have to take your word for it. 

But the bottom line: You are not volunteering yourself to go to fight That's factual, and settled. 

So you -- what? Want to send a bunch of people younger than you into a battle? To kill people in a Third World desert, several thousand miles away? Who are posing no immediate threat to the United States?

Hmm....

Is that patriotic -- to sacrifice others like this? If they were in Canada, ready to storm across -- fer sure. But as it is...

 Dunno. Just thinking out loud.

Introduction
I love to surf in a kayak and I take a lot of photographs.

Other than that I have worked in the technology field for over 30 years, including sales, tech support, programmer, analyst, and engineer. Over the past 15 years I've specialized in building multi-tiered, distributed database systems and have consulted for some of the worlds largest corporations including, ahem, Enron, AIG, Sysco Foods, Shell Oil, Honeywell, McKinsey & Co, Aim Mgmt (now Invesco), Veritas Geophysical, Dynegy, Houston Industries, and a couple more I can't remember.

Every now and then I drop an F-Bomb. Sorry.
