The New York Times is reporting three bloggers who have died, and they say it is because of bloggin. Kind of strange, I never considered sitting down to a computer as “dangerous” but evidently some people do. I see a distinct correlation between this and carpal syndrome, but dangerous, life threatening, c’mon.
Most of them (bloggers) are dying of heart attacks, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the entire community of bloggers are susceptible to this and will eventually keel over while writing something poignant like ….. My Life Sucks.
For the most part, I am somewhat “laid back” and I don’t put a lot of stock in all this. The stress levels only apply when you have to try and communicate with some knuckle-dragger who is dead-sure his political party is the best in the land, or you are dealing with some second cousin twice removed from the human race. Then it gets a little dicey.
Personally, I don’t personally worry about it, I have for years, drank copious amounts of coffee, stayed up way too late, and sat for hours at the keyboard. If it was gonna happen, it would have already been my time. When you look around you can always find something that will make you feel better.
Here is an example: Just this week, in Oregon, a man announced that he was pregnant!
Yeah, I know, you think I am making this up, but I am not. Some woman who used to be, no wait a minute. A woman, who is now a man, is pregnant. Yeah, there it is. So you can readily see ….. There are things out there, which are definitely worse than death by bloggin. They wanted to have a family, so they went to a fertility specialist, and here is the end result.
So here is where we have come on our little walk of political correctness in America. We are now sending women into battle, and our men are now bearing children. Is this a sick world or what. Next thing I will be reading will be: CHINESE ANNOUNCE THE NAME OF THE FIRST TEST TUBE BABY BORN IN WHO-HUNG PROVINCE … IT IS A BOY …. NO FUN SON.
(Yeah I know, pretty lame, don’t send me any letters)
91,000 babies in the U.S. are underfed, neglected, or physically abused in the first year of life. This just released out of the CDC in Atlanta, Ga. It is really a picture that one doesn’t even want to imagine. Now think about this poor baby, having to tell or explain to everyone how his “mother was actually his father” and all that. Really a hard label to put on a kid.
Here is the best one of the week. A friend of mine sent me this on Thursday.
As you may have heard, the Bush Administration said each of us would get a rebate check to stimulate the economy.
If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China
If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs
If we purchase a computer it will go to India
If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala
If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan
If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.
We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at yard sales, since those are the only businesses still in the United States.
Might be more truth in that than most of us realize.
I have it wrong. I said that “Zimbabwe’s currency was a million dollar note” earlier in the week. That is incorrect; it has introduced a 10 million dollar bill. Now here is Super Inflation or possibly Hyper Inflation. This 10 million dollar bill as of last week was capable of paying for roughly about two rolls of toilet paper in that African nation. Zimbabwe has an inflation rate of more than 10,000 percent a month and unemployment rate of 80 percent. Man that is terrible. So I stand corrected …. Sorry.
There goes the neighborhood. Scientists are investigating the case of a Bosnian man whose home has been hit by five meteors. It has been confirmed that this poor slobs’ house has been hit recently repeatedly, and they are considering the possibility of a magnetic field being the attraction. He of course believes that he is being targeted by extraterrestrials. Sure makes sense to me, travel millions of miles across space and time to do a drive by on some guy in Bosnia. That seems logical to me. Beam me up Scotty … No intelligent life here.
Like I said, “There might be worse things than death by bloggin'”
