This song reminds me of myself... Behind Blue Eyes

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
And no one knows
What it's like to be hated
To be fated to telling only lies

[Chorus:]
But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like i do, and i blame you!
No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

[Chorus]

Discover l.i.m.p. say it [x4]
No one knows what its like
To be mistreated, to be defeated
Behind blue eyes
No one knows how to say
That they're sorry and don't worry
I'm not telling lies

[Chorus]

No one knows what its like
To be the bad man, to be the sad man
Behind blue eyes.

Emotions and this song... KT Tunstall - Through The Dark

This song reminds me of someone, it makes me feel good but sad at the same time

KT Tunstall - Through The Dark
As I walk away
I look over my shoulder
To see what I'm leaving behind

Pieces of puzzles
And
Wishes on eyelashes fail

Oooooh!
How do I show all the love
Inside my heart

Well this is all new
And I'm feeling my way through the dark

And I used to talk
With honest conviction
Of how I predicted my world
I'm gonna leave it to to star gazers
Tell me what your telescope says

Oh what is in store for me now?
It's coming apart

I know that it's true
'cause I'm feeling my way through the dark

Try to find a light on somewhere
Try to find a light on somewhere
I'm finding I'm falling in love with the dark over here

Oh oh what do I know I don't care
Where I start

For my troubles are few
As I'm feeling my way through the dark
Through the dark
I'm feeling my way through the dark

Diamond Engagement Rings - stolen from Mental_Floss

Prior to the 20th century, engagement rings were strictly luxury items, and they rarely contained diamonds. But in 1939, the De Beers diamond company changed all of that when it hired ad agency N.W. Ayer & Son. The industry had taken a nosedive in the 1870s, after massive diamond deposits were discovered in South Africa. But the ad agency came to the rescue by introducing the diamond engagement ring and quietly spreading the trend through fashion magazines. The rings didn’t become de rigueur for marriage proposals until 1948, when the company launched the crafty “A Diamond is Forever” ring.jpgcampaign. By sentimentalizing the gems, De Beers ensured that people wouldn’t resell them, allowing the company to retain control of the market. In 1999, De Beers chairman Nicky Oppenheimer confessed, “Diamonds are intrinsically worthless, except for the deep psychological need they fill.”

In addition to diamond engagement rings, De Beers also promoted surprise proposals. The company learned that when women were involved in the selection process, they picked cheaper rings. By encouraging surprise proposals, De Beers shifted the purchasing power to men, the less-cautious spenders.

Why I'm voting Democrat...
Letter to the editor

I'm voting Democrat because like most Americans I trust lawyers more than anyone else; I think only lawyers should run the government, and all the Democrat Leaders are lawyers: Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, John Edwards, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Leader Harry Reid, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry, to name just a few. (Al Gore dropped out of Law School, so I don't trust him as much, except on Global Warming.)

I'm voting Democrat because the Democrats support the trial lawyers and I think this country needs more lawsuits and less tort reform. And I don't believe the trial lawyers' contributions have a thing to do with it.

I'm voting Democrat because Congress has done such a wonderful job under Democrat leadership the last two years, that I want a lot more of the same.

I'm voting Democrat because I want to get my health care from the same competent, efficient, cost-effective, customer-service-focused folks who run the US Post Office, the Pentagon, FEMA and the state Registry of Motor Vehicles.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

I'm voting Democrat because Sen. Obama has promised to cut the taxes of 95% of the people, including the 30% who don't pay taxes.

I'm voting Democrat because Sen. Obama has promised to take away the secret ballot in union elections, and I think the union bosses should know if a workingman or woman is with them, or against them.

I'm voting Democrat because Sen. Obama has over three years experience in the Federal Government, and "Hope" is a great strategy.

I'm voting Democrat because Sen. Obama voted "present" instead of "yes" or "no" over 120 times in the Illinois State Senate, and I think we need a decisive president.

I'm voting Democrat because I think that drilling for American oil is foolish, when we can buy oil from the Middle East.

I'm voting Democrat because I think windmills (except off Hyannis) are a better answer to reliable, clean energy than Nuclear Energy.

I'm voting Democrat because I don't think we give enough to other countries in foreign aid.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm for putting up barriers to free trade, as they did in 1930 with the Smoot-Hawley bill. That made things much better then.

I'm voting Democrat because I miss the high unemployment, inflation and interest rates of the Jimmy Carter years.

I'm voting Democrat because parents shouldn't get to choose the school their kids go to. Parents should leave their children's education to the teachers and stay out of it.

I'm voting Democrat because I think this is the perfect time to raise the Capital Gains tax and drive investment money out of the stock market.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would, and I want to spread my wealth around to those who earn less—or nothing.

I'm voting Democrat because freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

I'm voting Democrat because, when we pull out of Iraq, I trust that the bad guys will stop what they're doing because they now think we're good people.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday CAN tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm not concerned about restoring partial birth abortions so long as we keep all death row murderers alive.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that small businesses should not be allowed to make a profit. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution to people who didn't start businesses.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe the law is what judges say it is, and not what legislators say -- or the constitution.



I'm voting Democrat because the media would call me a racist if I didn't.

The Zen of Sarcasm

01. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.

02. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and leaky tire.

03. It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

04. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

05. Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

06. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

07. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

08. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

09. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is probably not for you.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

11. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably a wise investment.

12. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

13. Some days you're the bug; some days you're the windshield.

14. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

15. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

16. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

17. Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

18. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

19. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

20. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

21. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

AND

22. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

My 4th of July

So yeah..... I was invited 2 different places.... Go with friends to Jacksonville FL and Waycross FL with family... So anyone that knows me knows that I love Jax and want to move there... I have a hard time resisting a trip there.. so that's what I went with...



Left the house to go to Jax @ 4pm, before I left I called my friends but they were busy so I couldn't speak to them.... When I got to Jax @ about 6pm I found out that they decided not to go!



So I decided to drive to the apple store... It was a pain in the damn ass to find... and it was closed... I decided that it would be no fun to spend the 4th alone so I decided to drive to Waycross... @ 8pm I made it and hung out with my family for an hour, decided that I wanted to go home and maybe to Valdosta, GA



Well I got home a few min ago... I am exhausted from all of the driving.... Didn't have the greatest holiday....



So how was yours?

My Day Today

Today my plans were to meet friends.. go down the river... look at truck.. and maybe go to the movies if I had time....



This is how the day turned out...



As most people know I work late at work... So I usually sleep in.. I set my alarm to go off early... I wound up sleeping through the alarm.... When I woke up I was like hmm do I have time to make it to the park... I said to myself maybe... So I got dressed and got to the park... a few min late.... but I couldn't get in because I didn't have cash... ahh my luck...



So I checked out the truck, it was alright... I don't really know what I think... nothing is wrong with my Xterra... I just want something with better gas mileage and eiather a truck or a sporty car... oh and not too expensive..hehe



On my way home I was tired as hell due to not much sleep and almost feel asleep on the way... So when I got home I passed out and didnt wake back up until 3pm...



I went back to town at 7:30 and wound up seeing the 9:30 showing of Wanted... kick ass movie but i missed a few min of it...



Overall good day... just didnt work out as planned...



I was about a half thought into driving to Jacksonville FL... good thing I didn't... I would have fallen asleep driving

Women

Thursday I had a couple interesting things happen... My mother met a girl that she felt that I would like and got her number for me... first time that's ever happened... I tried calling her earlier today but I didn't get an answer...



Later that same day (thursday) while I was at the mall I was in radioshack and a girl came in and asked if they were hiring.. I really liked her voice so I checked her out.... she was very cute and my type... but I did what I normally do which is nothing... and she went on her way... a little while later I was in Spencers and she was between Spencers and WaldenBooks speaking to a group of people... as I was walking to the book store she stopped me and said something that I didn't expect... That she kept looking at me and she felt that she knew me... I was kinda taken back... I am usually the one that says this to people... but before we could really speak she went back to her job hunting... I saw her one more time right before she left the mall... I guess I blew my chances..... Maybe I will luck up again.... I was rather attracted to this girl and would like to get to know her...

Mobile Phone

So today I updated my phone to Windows Mobile 6.1... I have noticed a very positive difference with my phone. If you have a phone that will support the update I suggest doing it asap!

I don't know how I get so tired.... I work in a call center... I do have to walk around quite a bit... but that shouldn't account for how tired I stay...

Last night I didn't get home from work untill 3am... hopefully tonight I will get some good rest

Friday, June 13, 2008

Wondering why I woke up so damn early this morning :( It's going to be a long day

Jackie Greene - Honey I Been Thinking About You

Honey, I been thinking about you

Well I aint interested in the clothes that you wear
in the car that you drive or the cut of your hair
honey, you got something that i can't compare
and i've been thinking about you

And I don't really care about the weather outside
and i don't want to talk about national pride
all that I need for to be satisfied is a
woman who's nothing like me

love is for fools, yes a fool such as i
and i can't tell you how and i can't tell you why
ah but honey I just can't deny you at all

Oh and I don't want to be your two-weekend lover
your boy-in-the-bag, your one-or-the-other
and I ain't looking for a wife or a mother
but honey i've been thinking about you

well maybe you're wrong and maybe you're right
and maybe we could sit here and argue all night
but maybe you just better turn out the lights
cause honey i've been thinking about you

honey i've been thinking about you for a while
and it's driving me mad, yes it's cramping my style
and i aint asking you to walk down the aisle, but I...

Suitcase to staircase, to candelit room
where i sift throught the silk in the air and perfume
and i'll be loving you baby, i'll be loving you soon
cause honey i've been thinking about you

now i don't really care about your hot-blooded sister
i'm sure theres a man for to love her and miss her
i didn't mean nothing, i just happened to kiss her
but honey i was thinking about you

I don't really care about your daddy's corvette
your house in the hills or your pink private jet
or that ring on your finger you say you regret
cause honey, i've been thinking about you

rat race to car chase to trains in the station
everyone wants to change their location
everyone wants some new inspiration
but i can't stop thinking about you

Indiana Jones 4

I went and saw Indiana Jones 4 today, I really enjoyed it!

If you haven't seen it yet.. I suggest going to see it asap!

sometimes i wonder what's wrong with me

I have been single for 5 years or so... No one seems to want to go out with me, and I do try...

What really bothers me is when women say they dont understand why I am single, but not a single "single" girl is interested in me

America and cars

I really believe that America needs a new car company... and I do not mean one owned by Dodge, Ford... or any of the others.... Tesla Motors has the right idea to be the next car company... although they have too high a price tag for a common person when it comes to their cars.... I really hope that Tesla doesn't disappear....

One thing that would be great would be use of the technology that Denny Klein has come up with.. think about this... 4oz of WATER to drive 100 MILES......

Ouch!

While I was driving to town today I was eating a candy bar and bit the hell out of my tounge... I couldn't speak for like 2 hours.. It still hurts now!

I bite my tounge in the same spot more than i care to admit.. but never this bad... damn this really hurts :(

What I am still single?

Being single.. good or bad..... well I guess that's up to whoever it is....

I have been single for about 6 0r 7 years now..... yep.. loosing count of the years.. hehe

But I date right???? Rarely, cannot seem to find a girl willing to go out with me... But they I guess taking myself out to a dinner and a movie is good enough.... Hey it is only a few dollars cheaper with gas prices the way they are what's the difference? It's still expensive!

I have tried different things over the years.... even stopped trying for a few years..... most of the time I give up really easy.... with one girl I tried everything that I could....

Things are looking up though... I am making some friends now.... which is something else that I had almost given up on..... I just got invited to a house warming party... and invited to stay with a friend of mine in Orange Park, FL and her roommate for the weekend... (it's kinda up in the air )

The really good thing about being single is that I really want to move away from here....
something about this area makes me feel trapped.... like I really do not belong.... so i can move....

I really want to move to Jacksonville Beach Fl but I am much more open to other places than I used to be.... Hell I have considered working in another country for a year. which would be so rad!

So what does all of this mean????

I am a lonely guy, who is ready for a big change.... Has some fears but is ready to overcome them, wants someone in his life but understands that it's not something to center his life on...

oh... and there are a few girls that i like.... maybe i will luck up soon

Me and my umm... life

What is it about me... I have no idea... If you knew what went through my head... I imagine that it would frighten you at least bit..

I have a lot of things thing constantly run through my mind, it's like a deep crazy sea of waves from all directions...... Things that make me smile.. things that make me frown.. things that make me sad.. things that make me angry....

I also have ideas... i am so full of ideas.. although i constantly come up with new ones and forget old ones... certain ones would have made me rich... and if i am lucky still will

there are things that go on in my life that i do not tell anyone about... i keep it locked inside my head...... for those thoughts to bounce around and bother me all the time.....

what's funny is the things that bother me are not just bad things... is also good things.... and why i keep myself from them........

yes i am my own worst enemy...

My life at this moment

Currently there isn't much going on with me... Just work...

In my spare time I play my Xbox 360 and go to the movies....

I am currently debating on buying a house to rent it out for extra money... It would be a big investment but I think it would be worth it...

The girl that has my heart lives over 1,000 miles away, sometimes I think about just getting in my car and driving up there just to see her....

I am still trying to find my way to move to Jacksonville Beach, FL

I am a member of The Valdosta Society for Free and Rational Thought, a group that some of my friends started...

I wish I had more people to hang out with because I am terribly lonely and tired of doing things by myself...

I am also beginning to seriously think of places that I am going to go to.. Like Vegas for instance...

Speed up firefox / flock

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining

network.http.proxy.pipelining

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

What is it with life

The thing about life is everything is going to beat you down if you let it.... it's a constant fight to keep your spot... and major battle to move up in the world.... it's a war that you will never win.... in the end we all die..... what is the point you may say... to survive as long as you can, and to be as comfortable as possible...

I think the point is to make it what you want..... do you best to not think of things as obstacles but experiences and make the best of them... nothing is truly bad... if you learn from it and move on you have done yourself a great service... and if you can teach others around you your lessons you just improved their life as well...

We all have different objectives in our lives, never give up going for the things that you want, the things that make you happy.... it's always worth trying to succeed

Heath Ledger died of accidental overdose

28-year-old actor had oxycodone, anti-anxiety, sleep aids in his system




NEW YORK - Heath Ledger died of an accidental overdose of painkillers, sleeping pills, anti-anxiety medication and other prescription drugs, the New York City medical examiner said Wednesday.


The cause of death was “acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine,” spokeswoman Ellen Borakove said in a statement.

The drugs are the generic names for the painkiller OxyContin, the anti-anxiety drugs Valium and Xanax, and the sleep aids Restoril and Unisom. Hydrocodone is another name for ibuprofen.

Here is what I just learned about the moon landings

List of manned Apollo Moon landings
In total twenty-four American astronauts have traveled to the Moon, with twelve walking on its surface and three making the trip twice. Apollo 8, Apollo 10 and Apollo 13 were lunar-orbit-only missions with no moon landings. Apollo 7 and Apollo 9 never left Earth orbit. Apart from the inherent dangers of manned moon expeditions as seen with Apollo 13, one reason for their cessation according to astronaut Alan Bean is the cost it imposes in government subsidies."[1]

Future plans

The current U.S. Vision for Space Exploration calls for a human landing on the Moon no later than 2018.
Russia plans to send cosmonauts to the Moon by 2025 and establish a permanent manned base there in 2027-2032.[4]
Other nations, including China and India, have expressed interest in pursuing human landings on the Moon, but none have currently announced formal plans.
The Google Lunar X Prize competition offers a $20 million award for the first privately-funded team to land a robotic probe on the Moon. Like the Ansari X Prize before it, the competition aims to advance the state of the art in private space exploration

This is one phone I would make sure to keep in service

Something about me...

I have something to confess about myself that some people know and most people don't.... I haven't thought about it for a long time until today... I saw a girl that I thought was really cute... and seemed really interesting... i kept putting myself in situations to where I could have said something to her, (a few times by chance, the first time on purpose) I just couldn't bring myself to speak to her

This is the way it is with me... I rarely go for the girls I really want to go after.... and I give up way too easy (one girl may disagree on that one hehe)... I guess it's easier to get turned down by the girls I expect it from than the ones I wouldn't want to turn me down.

I guess as of today I am actually trying to meet girls again.... question is... will I get past this talking issue that I have

Some movies just suck

One great thing about netflix is that if the movie sux ya cannot really feel too bad cause it didnt really cost ya anything more or less

The movie that sparks this post is Miami Vice... that movie really sucked... I watched a total 15 min before giving up and turning it off to mail back in

This is a bad day to be in a kayak


Alone in his tiny plastic sea kayak, marine biologist Trey Snow had hoped to stealthily track a great white shark. But he had the shock of his life when he spotted a giant fin and realized it was he who was being stalked - by surely one of the most feared killers in the world.

The magnificent creature initially dived to the seabed, inspecting the kayak from below, before rising menacingly to the surface. Luckily for Trey, the 13ft-long shark was more inquisitive than hungry.
