This just makes me laugh. Why can’t we have cars like that?

Just a rant

There’s something that really gets under my skin when it comes to just how stupid people can be, and that’s when I see a guy beating up on a woman. There are few things that debase humanity more than a dickless jackass who feels the need to reassert his “power” in gender roles by slapping a woman around.

Just recently, I exited a building just in time to see a guy backhand his girlfriend. As he was backing away from me, he attempted to justify such an act by telling me that he beats her so that she can learn to function in society. This is the kind of person I have zero patience for. Needless to say, I bruised my knuckles quite a bit, and asked if he felt more sociable as a result.

He didn’t.

This is exactly why I have no patience for wife beaters and the like. If you can’t handle being an inferior specimen of a person, take it out on yourself. If you think that you can ‘keep her in line’ by beating her, you’re wrong. You’re not a behavior counselor, and you’re not a champion for your gender. You’re just a disposable human being that the rest of us wouldn’t waste a second bullet on. The battered woman does often wind up shooting the offender when she can think of no other way out. But then we live in a society where she is the criminal in such a situation. And there’s always another way.

And so when people whine and moan about the state the world is in, how we see violence and genocide everywhere we look, remind them that it starts at home. And that’s where it should end. So guys, don’t hit girls. Call me old-fashioned, call me chauvinistic I don’t care. I just think it’s wrong. And there are many who share that opinion. So if you plan on beating up on your wife, or girlfriend, or anyone of the sort, just remember that there are people who take great pleasure in breaking bones in your face.

Don’t hit women. Don’t be an ass. And only shoot to wound.

I punched an owl once.

Only in Germany…

This is a photo taken by my friend of the most ornate church in Heidelberg, Germany. And yes, that is a sex shop right next door.

There's a black hole in the middle of the street...

Apparently this is a church prefered for wedding ceremonies. See the van at the bottom? It was unloading a load of dildos while the wedding was in session. Yes, only in Germany.

You’d think they’d be more concerned with colonizing Mars, or searching for alternate fuels, or something. But no. The Greatest minds in the world are focused on what happens when you pop a water balloon in zero gravity. Videos here.

You may recall some recent posts that alluded to a certain flood caused by the sprinklers in my dorm. After three weeks in the hotel, we were put up in the presidential suite on campus where my bed was mysteriously broken (don’t ask). Here are some updated pictures of my room. They’ve been repairing the damage, but not before they had to destroy everything completely.

Pee in the sink!

This is the kitchen. But that’s the bathroom counter and sink where the oven used to be.

why all the brown stains?

We found everything but the kitchen sink stacked in the bathroom and tub.

there it is...

Then we found the kitchen sink in one of the bedrooms. Along with a frying pan.

So now we have a lot of cleaning up to do, and a lot of gathering crap out of storage. At this point, I’m just hoping we don’t find any food we missed on the way out. If it walks out of the fridge, we just let it go.

I was driving around the parking lot of Publix alone, and I actually spoke these words aloud to myself-
“When am I going to learn to trust my instincts?”

“Maybe when they stop telling me to kill children.”

Am I the only one who feels this way?
