There are many people who are looking forward to the upcoming 2022 World Cup, to be held in Qatar. I, for one, am looking forward to actively avoiding it. Why?
Oh no! TNA Wrestling is going to be moving to a channel that I don't currently have! What am I going to do?!?
Okay, sounds good.
$5,528.31. That's how far away I am from amassing the money in order to accomplish Project Buy A House. Five thousand five hundred twenty-eight dollars and thirty-one cents. Then I can be rid of this shit. I'm not going to put a donation link on this page. That's something my mind won't allow me to do. What I can do is tell people that there books that I have written that are for sale, the proceeds of which go to me.

After President Obama expressed his support for Net Neutrality, Texas Senator Ted Cruz famously said "Net Neutrality" is Obamacare for the Internet". This is a line he later incorporated into a commentary he penned, which is linked at the top. The phrase "Net Neutrality is Obamacare for the internet" is something that I feel is inflammatory, but I tend to say that about anything Ted Cruz says that gets media attention. After reading the commentary he wrote about treating internet access like a public utility, I'd like to look at what he said again but this time take out the Obamacare line as I do so.
In the commentary, Senator Cruz advocates for four basic principles that should guide lawmakers. Those principals are:
- Abandoning the idea of taxing internet sales
- Dismissing plans to give nations hostile to human rights and democracy more influence over internet policy
- Promoting growth in the technological sector by avoiding unnecessary regulation
- Recognizing that constitutional rights are digital rights as well
I disagree with Senator Cruz about Net Neutrality. I feel we need to protect smaller businesses and start ups by maintaining Net Neutrality, so that all businesses have an equal footing when it comes to being able to deliver content and services to consumers. However, the other points that Ted Cruz makes right true to me. While I disagree with how the third point should be done, the ideas Senator Cruz expresses are ones that I, as a small government liberal, agree with. It feels weird for me to say this, but I nearly agree with Ted Cruz.
With the launch of Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS and Wii U came the launch of Nintendo Amiibo. Similar to Skylanders and Disney Infinity, these figures, which are modelled after characters from Nintendo's various franchises, use near field communication to interact with supported video game software, allowing data to be transferred in and out of each game and across multiple platforms. With this launch came an issue having to do with the method that many people are using to buy these figurines, particularly those who attempt to do so online.
We've all run into problems with Autocorrect on the various devices that utilize this. Well, people are running into problems when they search for "amibos" on devices that utilize Autocorrect, because when a user types in "amibos" the device may Autocorrect that word do "amigos". If a user is typing to quickly or carelessly, the user may type in "amibos" be Autocorrected to "amigos" and end up searching for things that they did not intend.
Such problems have resulted in the surprising uptick in the popularity of the following items on Amazon:
Amigos, a 1976 album from Santana
Amigo, a brand of instant coffee popular in Romania
¡Three Amigos!, a 1986 alleged comedy starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and a 1986 Chevy C/K
In the time that I've spent getting up early to do things for people that I don't want to do, I've spend a lot of time playing WWE Supercard, which I reviewed when it launched. Even though you can spend a lot of time playing this game, I get the sense that I am quickly coming up on the endgame of this mobile title. There isn't a big end all mega-boss to conquer in this game, but there is a limit to what you can do with the cards that are included in the game and I feel that I'm quickly approaching that limit. When that happens I will need something else to play.
And there is my distraction. No, not the game, I'm going to watch this Kate Upton ad on a loop multiple times.
For the past two months I've been having to get up early to do shit for people things that are their responsibility to do. This is something that I can do nothing about, say nothing about, and will continue to go on untill the people with some real influence over this situation finally does something about it. Unfortunately since these people are seemingly allergic to the doing of things, it is my honest belief that I will have to continue to get up early to do shit for people things that are their responsibility to do untill time ends.
This situation has made Project Buy A House even more of a priority for me. I don't want to buy a Playstation 4, I don't want to buy a Wii U, I don't want to buy a new iPad, I don't want to get new underwear even though I am in need of new underwear, I WANT TO BUY A FUCKING HOUSE BECAUSE WHEN I BUY A FUCKING HOUSE I CAN FINALLY BE IN COMPLETE CONTROL OF WHEN I FALL ASLEEP AND WHEN I WAKE UP!

Huh. You know, I'm about five thousand dollars away from at long last amassing enough money for a downpayment for a house. Hmmmmmmmmmm. Interesting.
Many presidents, after their time in office is done, go on to do good things for the world. Jimmy Carter is actively building houses for people who are unable to do so for themselves because they are less fortunate and/or lazy. Bill Clinton's foundation, oddly enough named The Clinton Foundation, is..... wait, what the fuck does The Clinton Foundation do? And President Reagan spent the final years of his life doing what he did during the final years of his presidency, slowly losing his mind.
President George W. Bush is no different. In fact President Bush is doing something more substantial than any other president that I can remember, and I can remember a lot because I drink heavily. President Bush is currently developing a new product that can be used by many people when they are in time of need to vomit. While I've never had use for this product, I've been told that ipecac can be used to induce vomiting, which is something that you may need to do when you ingest something harmful or poisonous or poisonously harmful. Over the past couple of years, President Bush has been developing a more sustainable form of ipecac. This form of vomiting inducing substance isn't something that can be expended through use, and can stay in it's current form in it's current quantity for years, if not in perpetuity, which is a big word that means forever. The form of ipecac that President Bush is developing is believed to be visual in nature, and an example of a prototype of this form of ipecac can be found here:
Don't look too long, affects of this form of ipecac are severe and sudden. It is unknown when this new form is ipecac will be available on the market, some people hope never.
Tor may not be as anonymous and secure as people think it is. Why? Because the government is actively trying to crack the methodology used by Tor to make people's data anonymous. But why is the government trying to crack Tor?
Terrorism. The government is trying to crack Tor, if they haven't done so already, because international terrorists are using Tor to distribute their message without their locations being found. And now you know.
We've all heard about online education. Some of us may be doing it right now. Well, not now now, you're reading this blog post right now, and if you're supposed to be learning something right now, GET TO IT!
There are many different ways and venues by which you can engage in online education. One of the primary ways online education is delivered is by YouTube. There are a great many lectures, step-by-step, and how to videos of how to do a great many things on YouTube.
You can even learn how to pick locks online. Why would you need this skill? In most instances, not for anything you can admit to wanting to be able to do because that might constitute conspiracy to commit a crime.
There are a great many things you can learn to do online. Join in on the fun! Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going over to my neighbor's house.
4Chan has gained a reputation since it's inception as a place on the internet where you can find the most fucked up shit on the internet. 4Chan has become a place where people can do, say, and post things on the internet that most people wouldn't do, say, or post. There is a hotly contested debate as to whether that well known feature of 4Chan is a positive or a negative thing.
In this case, it's probably a negative thing. They say that there's no such thing as bad publicity. If it publicity that could lead to you getting shut down, then it is bad publicity.
I'm one of those people who has an appreciation for Thanksgiving. Sure it another day of the year where I have to deal with my family, but this day comes with food that will put me in a coma! The appreciation that I have for Thanksgiving is what drives me to despise any person, company, or entity that encroaches upon this most sacred food holiday.
I WILL NEVER LISTEN TO SUNNY 103.1 AGAIN! Sure I've never actually listened to Sunny 103.1, and didn't know that it existed untill I read that article, BUT I WILL NEVER LISTEN TO THAT RADIO STATION (it is a radio station, right?) EVER AGAIN!!!
Happy Sleeping Emoji
by Hunter Red
I'd be on a couch
A soft and warm one
I'd have fallen asleep
Watching some less than satisfying drama I'd be asleep
Only to wake up later and go to sleep again
I'd be alone, but okay with it
At least for the time being
Ideally I'd be temporarily asleep
But I'm not
Instead I'm awake because of things outside my control
Now you know why I'm pursuing Project Buy A House
I want to put myself in my ideal
I want to put myself
On that couch
Soft and warm
I want to put myself to sleep
That is the ideal
