Today when I walked into my economics class I saw something I dread every time I close my eyes. Someone had brought their new gaming laptop to class.The Forklift he used to bring it was still running idle at the back. I started sweating as I sat down and gazed over at the 700lb beast that was his laptop. He had already reinforced his desk with steel support beams and was in the process of finding an outlet for a power cable thicker than Amy Schumer's thigh.I start shaking. I keep telling myself I'm going to be alright and that there's nothing to worry about. He somehow finds a outlet. Tears are running down my cheeks as I send my last texts to my family saying I love them.The teacher starts the lecture, and the student turns his laptop on. The colored lights on his RGB Backlit keyboard flare to life like a nuclear flash, and a deep humming fills my ears and shakes my very soul. The entire city power grid goes dark. The classroom begins to shake as the massive fans begin to spin. In mere seconds my world has gone from vibrant life, to a dark, earth shattering void where my body is getting torn apart by the 150mph gale force winds and the 500 decibel groan of the cooling fans.As my body finally surrenders, I weep, as my school and my city go under.I really hate gaming laptops.

It should be noted that Christianity is almost the exact opposite of being 'self-reliant.'Christianity is an abdication of responsibility. It's giving up and saying 'Let God do His will!'When something goes wrong, you hear comments of it being 'part of the plan' and when things go right, it's all due to God's mercy.Christianity is stepping back and becoming a spectator in life. It's refusing to take responsibility and simply allowing yourself to become a victim of fate/God's will.Christians think 'praying' will fix things and sit back and wait for God to come save them from their own self-inflicted problems.

I drove a truck for many years in the San Francisco Bay area. I usually ended up in Oakland about 2 a.m. to change trailers. Oakland at 2 a.m. isn't a nice place. You'll never go more than, say, 20 seconds without hearing gunfire. Everything smells like urine, smoke, beer and ashes. There are piles of trash in the streets that will persist for months or years without being moved or cleaned up. Burned out car hulks litter the boulevards. About ten percent of all cars that are out cruising on Friday or Saturday nights have at least one window busted out.I had a lot of bizarre experiences there, but probably the most interesting, from a sociological point of view, were the ones that involved the local con-men. There's no shortage of regular, run-of-the-mill con artists there. Those are the people, usually men (99%) and usually black (75%) who have put together little scams to wash your windshield while you're trapped at a traffic light, then demand $5, or who are just simple panhandlers with a good and practiced pitch.But there's another strata altogether of con-artists plying their trade in Oakland at 3 a.m. I call them "The Masters".The first time I came across one, I was sitting in my truck in the parking lot of a local truck scale in a bombed-out downtown area. I was concentrating on my logs and bookwork and so was surprised to hear a voice hailing me from about 50 feet away.I looked out ...

I must not whargarrbl. Whargarrbl is the mind-killer. Whargarrbl is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my whargarrbl. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the whargarrbl has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

For any man who has a defect shall not approach: a man blind or lame, who has a marred face or any limb too long, a man who has a broken foot or broken hand, or is a hunchback or a dwarf, or a man who has a defect in his eye, or eczema or scab, or is a eunuch. (Leviticus 21:18)

Uh, you are aware, aren't you, that second hand smoke has been found to be far less harmful than the highly publicized reports of a few years ago that were trying to say that secondhand smoke is far more dangerous than firsthand smoke? Those reports were bullshit.Tell ya what, I'll back your cause when you can tell me where I can go to avoid Diesel exhaust, highly carcingenic smoke from people's outdoor grills, and most of all, where to go camping where I do not have to be exposed to extremely dangerous campfire smoke. (Yes, campfire smoke is some of the worst stuff out there.) Almost sounds comical, doesn't it? But it's true.While I'm not all that worried about it, I do find myself far more concerned with the effect of hundreds of city buses each burning a couple hundred gallons of diesel each day, or an entire log of burning vegetable material, than I am of a couple grams of burning tobacco. Or the absolute millions of tons of mildly radioactive coal being burnt each year, that's probably the most scary and major cause of lung cancer in this country.While, yes, smoking is bad, and very harmful to the smoker, the whole secondhand smoke thing is a giant red herring. Check the funding, most of the money comes from the coal burning energy companies, trying to keep our eyes of the real source of increasing cancer rates in this country - the megatons of coal burnt each year and ...

The Key to The Numbers of The Beast 2*3*3*37=666 and 2*2*7*11=616 Is The Positive Natural Integer Six(6) The Holy Numbers of God is Three(3) and Seven(7) accordingly to Moses writings in The Genesis 1600 B.C. The Number Six(6) is Just Below the Gods Holy Seven(7) On the other hand Just Above Seven(7) Is the King of Numbers - The Eight(8) Compare Henry the Eight(8) of England, also Compare 1997 and 1789 The Year of The French Revolution. It Contains two Prime Factors 89 and 97 Proof or Evidence Can Be Found In The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetics Look at the folowing numbers: 1,2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,7*7=49,3*17=51,53,3*19=57,59,61,67,71,73,79,3*3*3*3=81,83,3*29=87,89,7*13=91,97,101,103,107,109,3*37=111,113,2*2*3*13=117,7*17=119 and so the square root of 121 which is Eleven(11)For Proving if the Numbers up to the power two of Eleven(11) which is 121It is only neccessary to prove with the Prime Factors: 2,3,5,7 more Practical it is only necessary to prove with the Gods Holy Numbers Three(3) and Seven(7) Accordingly to Moses Sincerely Urban Salomon Avierfjard Gråbo,Visby,Gotland,The Baltic Sea,Sweden webmaster@alchemy47.com http://www.alchemy47.com alchemy727@msn.com http://www.hellaintabadplacetobe.org P.S. The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetics Sounds like This: "Any Positive Natural Integer can be written as an Product of Prime Factors except for the Individual orders of The Prime Factors" Prime Factors are Defined as Positive Natural Integers Who can be Divided Even Only By Two Numbers The Number one(1) and the Prime Factor It Self.

The phrase "everyone gets 15 minutes of fame" is bullshit. Not everyone can get 15 minutes of fame. The earth's population is about 6 billion. At 15 minutes per person, that amounts to over 171,000 years we'd have to spend just sitting around watching people be "famous." To hell with that.
