Water Stupidity

I blogged the other day about the impending water doom in Georgia. However, as had been pointed out by several in emails to me, Georgia is not the only state in the Southease that is suffering from a water crisis or water stupidity. In the midst of what may be the worst drought ever in North Carolina, Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are watering the synthetic turfs used by their field hockey teams. You are reading correctly. Fake fields must be saturated; it’s a very important rule imposed by the International Hockey Federation. The ater crisis is not Sonny Perdue’s fault, or George Bush’s, or the federal government’s fault. It’s everybody’s fault. The failures to plan are responsibilities that are spread out amongst just about everyone and going back for many years.

New Orleans Floods Again, Bush’s Fault

After more than 8 inches of rain drenched the city Monday, Mayor Ray Nagin shut City Hall early and schools were closed across the city. Waist-high water in parts of eastern New Orleans soaked businesses, some of which had only recently reopened after being damaged by Katrina in 2005. The pumps couldn’t keep up with rain storms. This must be Bush’s fault.

Iran Is Full of Crap

“Pull this finger, please…” Iran says that it is a peaceful state. Iran says that it has no nuclear weapons ambitions. Iran says it has no desire to make war. But Iran’s leader does believe that Israel should be exterminated and wiped off the face of the planet. Further, here’s a list of stuff that the US Department of Justice has reported in the past year:

  • 10/5/2007: Illegal exports of F-14 fighter jet components. Iran is the only country that still flies the F-14.
  • 9/18/2007: Sensitive aircraft component to Iran by Dutch company, Aviation Services International.
  • 8//27/2007: 100,000 Uzi submachine guns to Iran from California. Does anyone besides me see the irony in the shipment of Israeli made guns to Iran?
  • 5/8/2007: More F-14 jet components to Iran.
  • 4/8/2007: Sensitive encryption software to Iran.
  • 12/5/2006: Attempting to deliver a “guided wave” scanning device to Iran.
  • 11/22/2006: Fereidoon Kariman was arrested in the Eastern District of Michigan after authorities found rifle scopes, stun guns and other prohibited items in luggage for his trip to Iran.

Of course, these are just the highlights. Is there anyone in the entire world who believes anything that comes out of the pie hole of this crack pot or any of his flunkies? Is there any reason that we should not fear the actions of this country and prepare for the worst? Hopefully, the Venomites will shed light on the subject.

Breaking News: Cat Purrs

We thought that Kidney, the new cat in the house was defective because she did not purr. While she is still trying to sort out all of her confusing hormonal issues that resulted from getting fixed whilst in heat… She purrs. It’s just not a normal purr. Very quiet, more of a soft murmur and vibration. Kidney must be very relaxed for this to happen. Most domesticated cats will start purring when you hold them and rub their throats or scratch their ears. Kidney must be in your lap or on your chest, inverted, stretched completely out AND gettin petted. Then she will grace you with a purr.

I Got a Joe Job

Although I would have preferred not. This happens a couple of times a year. Some candy-coated f*ck nut decides to spew out a couple of million pieces of spam using what looks to be a sender from one of my domains. This, dear friends, is known as a Joe Job. Yes, I have SPF files established in host records of all of my domains. No, *I* wouldn’t be deluged with bounces and out of office notices if people would just set up their mail servers to compare the sender’s address to the actual sending IP address. Hey, that means that the recipient wouldn’t get the spam, either!

And here’s little tip for all of you idiots that use “I’m out of the office” auto-responders… STOP! Nobody reads them. What’s worse? You are verifying to the spammer (unless he is pulling a Joe Job) that yours is a live email address.

Off to the dentist…
