LittleDanielle Posted December 31, 2004 Share Posted December 31, 2004 I lurk around here now and then, and in light of recent post's about "taking care of our own" in our country, I am disgusted at the way you GROWN? ladies ACT! bitch bitch bitch america this america that.... AND WE WONDER WHY THE REST OF THE WORLD HATES US! This is something I would like to call the wigout. It takes place every friday at 5:10pm on a local radio station. And this is what was said tonight.... Read, ponder, discuss. (BTW, this is the man who lifted the curse on babe ruths grave, so they say) Yowzah! Yowzah! Yowzah! This is normally where i'd be doing the year end rear end review but this has been one of those years where we can't count it out till midnight. A huge quake and tsunami, in the Atlantic they're called tidal waves, in the Pacific a tsunami. A great name, sort of like saying, Godzilla. Tsunami. Without a doubt one of the biggest disasters on record. I've heard some of the news anchors wondering why they didn't have a warning system. Obviously the talking heads of the tube don't realize that they get paid the equivilant of half the gross national budget of most of the countries that have been devastated. When the country is that poor you make decisions like, build school and hospitals or create an elaborate warning system for something that happens every 150 to 200 years? I've had more than one person look at me and say, it is the end times, the end of the world is coming. Pleasssseeee. Again the folks muttering such statements are among the willfully ignorant who cause more problems than they solve. Yes this was a disaster but if you care to do just a little reading, you'll find a huge quake hit China in 1976 that killed somewhere between 250 and 500 thousand people. Should you really want to think end of the world stuff you would have had a field day in 1883. That is when Krakatoa blew up. Krakatoa is an island off the coast of Sumatra. A volcano erupted there and blew half the island out of existence. This is the same area as this tsunami took place. It threw so much ash into the air that the sun all over the world looked either blue or green for 13 days. Sunsets were so vivid and so red that even the New Haven fire department was called out because people were sure something huge was on fire. These vivid red sunsets went on for 3 years. The temperature was lowered over the entire planet by one degree and didn't return to normal until 1888! The quake last Sunday was so strong it actually slowed the rotation of the planet by 3 nanoseconds! The hurricanes in Florida couldn't even begin to equal the destruction and human misery this quake and tsunami caused, so don't hand me this crap about taking care of our own first. As a human being on the planet you have an obligation to help out in some way. Maybe that is the thought as we head into the new year. Helping out people around us instead of making that phone call to vote for the new American Idol. I call this amateur night. Professional drinkers usually lay low on New Years Eve. The amateurs go crazy. Hey! If you are going to boot, if you even are thinking about booting, head for a bathroom or go stand outside. You're going to have enough problems with your head tomorrow. You don't need any extra knots on it from vomiting on your friends oriental rug. And for god's sake don't get behind the wheel if you're loaded. If you're having a party hide everybody's keys. If they can find their keys they can leave. If they can't find their keys they stay. I want to see everybody at the first wigout of 2005. So don't get killed or kill anybody. For this the final night of 2004 is here and we still don't have any flying cars. But there is a new year a coming and it will be weirder than this one. I know that is hard to believe but the red sox won the world series. All bets are off on what the future holds, hell we may be battling aliens or werewolves by this time next year. So pig out, pork out, and freak out for this year is done and we are on the cusp of a new one and you've gotta gotta gotta wigout. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
