What the hell…

Before I left the house this morning I caught a whiff of pee. Red has a better sniffer than I and couldn’t smell anything, but that didn’t keep me from walking around looking for the wet spot… damn dogs. I didn’t find anything, and trusting my wife’s superior nose I went off to work.

Later on, sitting at my desk I scratch my nose with my left hand and damn, it smells like rubber. Not just a hint, but a solid, strong aroma. I know what you assholes are thinking, but you’d be wrong ‘cause I’m a Rightie thank-you-very-much. But what the hell did I touch?

I couldn’t take it anymore and went to wash my hands, and the hallway outside my office smells like someone had a bad case of the toots from one end to the other. Somebody needs to lay off the boiled cabbage, oof!

Right about then I recall reading that picking up weird smells could be sign of an inbound stroke or some shit.

My hands smell like soap and a coworker just commented on the eau de shite, I think I’m going to be ok.

War to the Knife…

 

Pakistan School Attack: Taliban Militants Kill More Than 140 in Peshawar

PESHAWAR, Pakistan —Taliban militants laid siege to a Pakistan school in a brazen hours-long attack on Tuesday, killing more than 130 children in an atrocity condemned by the White House as "heinous" and "horrific.”

…The Pakistani Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack, which Pakistani officials said appeared to be aimed at the children of senior military personnel.

…"The gunmen entered class by class and shot some kids one by one," one student who was in the Army Public School in Peshawar at the time told local media.

"They burnt a teacher in front of the students in a classroom," he added. "They literally set the teacher on fire with gasoline and made the kids watch."

 

Find the guilty. Kill them. Take all of their shit. Put their families out on the street and burn their house down.

Find everyone who gave them aid; friends, family, neighbors. Take all of their shit. Put their family out on the street and burn their house down.

Any local government employee or politician who helped in any way, from street sweeper to police officer to politician, Take all of their shit. Put their families out on the street and burn their houses down.

If a government was involved- Fuck ‘em. Find where the officials are hiding, warn the residents, bomb the shit out of location and the surrounding area. Tell the civilians who’s fault it is their neighborhood now looks like the surface of the moon. Tell the civilians to get keep their asshole leaders in line, or else.

Enough of this pussy footing bullshit.

Study Shows Listening to Music While you Work is a Good Thing.

From the Department of No Kidding…

This is the kind of music you should listen to at work

Listening to music at work increases accuracy and speed, a new study has found. The genre you should choose, from classical music to dance beats, depends on what your work involves

 

 

I knew that.

This is how Ebola can get a foothold in the U.S.

At a news conference Wednesday, Dr. Mark Lester confirmed that a nurse asked Duncan on his first visit whether he had been in an area affected by the Ebola outbreak that has killed thousands in West Africa.

"A checklist was in place for Ebola in this hospital for several weeks. That checklist was utilized by the nurse, who did ask [the] question [if the patient had been to Africa,]" Lester said. "[...] Regretfully, that information [was not shared] with the full team."

As the medical team assessed Duncan on his first visit, they thought it was a low-grade viral infection. Dr. Edward Goodman, a Texas Health Presbyterian infectious disease specialist, said when Duncan went to the emergency room Thursday he was not vomiting or having diarrhea, but he did have a fever and some abdominal pain.

"All the information wasn't present as they made their clinical decision," Lester said.

More…

Because one or more hospital employees dropped the ball, there are dozens of folks who have been exposed, including 5 children who could have spread the crap amongst their classmates.

As of right now, the CDC is telling us not to worry, all is well.

Hhhhmmm.

I think I’m going to pick up some N95 or N100 masks, gloves and some bleach...

Outlook 2010 Error: “outlook cannot display this view"

I accidentally deleted an email in my Outlook inbox this afternoon. No biggie, clicked over to the Deleted Items folder and wham!

“Outlook cannot display this view.”

Clicking ‘OK’ did nothing, I imagine because it will throw the same error for every deleted email. I’d be clicking until judgment day. Outlook webmail displays the deleted items fine, soooo…

Google to the rescue:

Start –> run –> "outlook.exe /cleanviews"

All better.

Another School District Fears Picture of Gun

Mike McDaniel weighed in on a Washington Post story;

New York high school bans National Guard recruiter from distributing National Guard T-shirts (and bars students from wearing them)

Long story short- The shirts have a silhouette of a guardsman with rifle in front of the American flag and “National Guard” across the top. The school district has a policy forbidding students from wearing anything that has a weapon on it.

“Superintendent of RCS Schools, Alan McCartney says rules are rules and if an exception is made for one shirt with a gun on it, where do you draw the line? “One of the problems you have in school during this period in our history is that the weapon becomes the focal point for some people,” McCartney says…. “[T]his has nothing to do with patriotism, nothing to do with anybody disliking the military, it has nothing to do with the recruiter himself, it just has to do with the fact that there was a weapon on the shirt and that just doesn’t have a place in a high school,” he says….”

Two paragraphs in Mr. McDaniel’s piece jump out at me-

“Where do you draw the line? I’ll be glad to explain. Schools are not there to “educate students to be neutral,” but to be proud of their nation and grateful to those that defend it. A substantial part of the educational process is transferring the values that have made America successful and free to new generations such that they too will appreciate the value of liberty and the sacrifices that must be made to keep it. The wearing of a National Guard t-shirt seems among the least offensive symbols a teenager might choose to embrace.”

And-

“Any school superintendent or principal that can’t see the difference between honest patriotism and frivolous, nihilistic, bloody video game images, and the clear line dividing them, calls into question their fitness for their position. Violence is carried out by individuals, not the tools they employ.  Firearms are neutral, neither good nor evil.  A rational policy would proscribe depictions of violence, not the implements of liberty.”

Another example of ‘zero-tolerance’ equals ‘zero-thought’.

Read both articles, they are concise and to the point.
