Things I love

Just considering a few things I love.

#1: The First Amendment to the United States Constitution
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

#2: The Internet
United Breaks Guitars - posted four days ago, seen 1.6 million times. Proletariat Unite!

I just love that United thought they could save a couple hundred bucks by giving this guy the run-around... and for a few hundred bucks they've bought themselves years of horrible PR. This song is so catchy and folksy. This will hurt them for years, and all it took to fight back was a You-Tube video. I just love how the internet evens the playing field between the powerful and those who have been wronged.

Gee, I wonder if these two things have any other applications in my life... hmmm... I'm getting an idea... I'm really tired of the Preposterous.

In other news, ashamed, United Airlines offered to pay for this guy's guitar. He told them to give the money to charity.


I think it is a little less than 14000. I didn't think the math for too long but I think it is closer than you realize.


Tweet: Am sleepy and can't stop yawning this morning. How soon till I retire? Only about 14,000 days. Ugh. Being lazy sucks.

Math: 14,000 days divided by 365 days/year is 38.6. I am 26.6, so that puts my retirement age at 65. So sadly, 14,000 days to go until retirement.

I forget sometimes how youthful you are. My estimation math was not counting weekends. :))
