Auto-Complete My Life

As everyone knows, Google search will helpfully try to auto-complete your query.  I typed in  a few fun party-topic starters, and :::sigh::: here’s what I got.

Let’s start with the eternal question: “Why ……”

 

why

That escalated quickly, as they say.  I think the pdf file is the least of your worries, because you are dead.

 

Let’s try “Why are…”

 

whyare

 

The top 5 concerns of googlers, I guess.  Let me try to help.

  1.  I don’t know, never quite got that figured out myself.  Gave up.
  2.   See #1
  3.   Also #1
  4.   Because.  Get over it.

 

Alrrighttt time to talk politics!

trump

  1.  He’s an overgrown Oompa-Loompa that escaped, obviously
  2.  He’s a bored rich man who craves any attention, negative or otherwise
  3.  No one knows for sure
  4.  You know damn well why, and it’s terrifying

 

hillary

 

  1. Why indeed
  2.  Because Bill lost a bet
  3.  She’s like “meh, why not”

 

bernie

 

  1. Holy shit, read something
  2. He’s everyone’s adorable and angry Jewish grandpa
  3. So many reasons.  So many.

 

Alright, enough politics.  Battle of the sexes?

 

women

  1.  Have you seen the price of tampons?  Bras?
  2.  We have ice-spider nests where our souls should be
  3.  Why are you so emotionless?
  4.  Wow, misogynist much?

men

 

  1.  Wait you just said women are mean, make up your mind
  2.  To give us piggyback rides
  3.  See #2
  4.  They won’t give us piggyback rides

 

 

Sorry for the shitpost, may edit it later.  Not on my game lately, y’all take care of yourselves and I’ll try to be wittier in the future.

I’m Baaackkkk

Well I’ve been gone awhile.  A lot has happened, in my life and in Game of Thrones.  I logged in and saw I had a nice comment, so I responded with my typical serene maturity.

suck

 

So I clearly haven’t changed any.  Good for me.  Ok let’s do some posts.

22 Excellent and Inappropriate Breakup Memes NSFW (or your ex)

If you’re going through a rough breakup, or have been through a painful breakup in the past, you know those feels.  Once you’re done crying, perhaps you just want to punch something or someone until you tire out, then take a nice nap.  I have been through all the phases of breakup, and while it is still too raw to write an amusing blog post about, I have collected 26 memes to hopefully make you smile and laugh, perhaps the first time since that rotten asshole did what they did.  Yeah, they know what they did.  Motherfuckers.

If you do this, you will have a bad time.  Now tell me how to stop.

Or, ya know, a blog post.

I think this is basically my ex’s line of thought.

Here are some final thoughts from your fractured friend LadyApathetica:

It’s true.  Trust.  Take care of yourself, love and value yourself, and the right person will come along and appreciate you.  Don’t ask me when!  I don’t know!  I’m trying to be supportive here!  Also…..

Yep.  One day at a time.  It’s gonna be alright.  Promise.

A Review Of Kindle Unlimited

When I became aware of the existence of Kindle Unlimited I got pretty damn excited.  I’m a readaholic and when I realized I could rent and read unlimited books for $9.99 a month from the comfort of my ample behind, I signed up for a trial.

Well.

Kindle Unlimited may be great if you read fiction.  I don’t.  I burned through the books they had available in my chosen subjects (mostly historical, a couple travel journalism books) in 3 days and was left with nothing else to read.  I canceled my membership.

So, if you read fiction, would it work for you?  I dunno, let’s take a look at the current popular fiction books.  Now, keep in mind this is what Amazon is telling me is popular in fiction.  I don’t have a damn clue.  I’m browsing the category of “released in the last 30 days” first.

Here are the titles available on Kindle Unlimited for that category, on the first page.

book2book1book3book4

Ok…ahhh….maybe nothing much has been published lately?

Alright I guess I have to look up specific books so I shall journey to the Barnes & Noble website and see if they can tell me what’s hot.

Ok, here are fiction bestsellers according to B&N.

1.  The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins

Available on Kindle Unlimited(KU)?  No.  Kindle edition $6.99

2.  The Stranger by Harlan Coben

KU?  Nope.  Kindle edition $10.99

3.  The Shadows by J.R. Ward

KU?  No.  Kindle edition $11.99

4.  All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

KU? Nope.  $12.99 kindle edition

Ok, I think you get the idea here.  Maybe some older but still popular books are available?

How about the Hunger Games trilogy?

YES!  All three in the series are available for KU.

So far so good.  Harry Potter?

YES!  All available with KU.

How about one of the very few fiction books I own, Memoirs of a Geisha?

No dice.

For some reason some people like that Nicholas Sparks guy, right?  How about his books?

Nope, not even KU for (gagging noise) The Notebook.

Verdict:   Do your research before committing to Kindle Unlimited.  They are offering a 30 day free trial, so poke around and see just how available the books you want to read will be, and make sure to cancel before that 30 days is up if you determine it won’t meet your reading needs.

6 FAQ’s About The Current Situation in North Charleston Answered By A Local

So lovely to see the city where I live in the national news!  What a surprise it’s because of a racially-motivated crime! (Do you detect sarcasm, because I keep having to wipe it off my keyboard.)   Have you wondered what the average local citizen thinks?  Well I am here, as an average local citizen, to do an FAQ for you.

1.  Well you’re all racist and backwards down there anyway, right?

I know it’s hard to believe, but no, we are not.  Yes, we have racists like anywhere else, and yes they tend to be more vocal and in positions of power down south, but many natives do not think this way, and many of us down here (like myself) are Northern transplants.   Being Northern by blood doesn’t mean non-racist by any means, but we are not all backwards Confederate-flag waving, cousin-humping bumpkins down here.  Truly.  Promise.   Also, in this area there are many immigrants, both legal and otherwise, who have different perspectives and are also victimized by authority…..but that’s for another post.

2. Do you think this crime was racially motivated?

Absolutely, and if anyone tries to deny that, they are either kidding themselves or are flat-out racists.  It shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that the south has a huge issue with race, and modern times has only made it less outspoken in public.  We all know actions speak louder than words, and if Walter Scott had been white, do you think he would have been shot?  (The answer is no.  There is no other option.  No.)

3.  How is Charleston going to react to this incident?

Surprising everyone including myself, the officer who killed Mr. Scott has been arrested and charged.  He will face the court, and if he is found not-quilty….well….in my eyes they better have a legit heapload of evidence to back that up; at this time there is no reason to find him anything BUT guilty.

There are memorials and marches ongoing, and currently the city government is doing the right thing.  “Currently” is the key word, stay tuned.

4.  How can we fix racism in the south?

The easy answer is education.  We have Black history month once a year, and barely any in schools.  When African-Americans are not represented as equally contributing to our nation in school, how can (some) adults then see them as equals?  Unless they research on their own…..and how many adults do you know that rationally say “hmmm….I better look into this topic I am unsure of before I form an opinion…..”……..they are going to only pick up on and believe in how the media projects different races.  For example, a quick scan of television would reveal:  Asian: smart;  Middle Eastern: dangerous;  Black: criminals;  Whites:  over-privileged.  Stereotypes influence how humans think of others more than most of us would like to admit.

To fix racism, we have to ensure equal opportunity in EVERYTHING.  No, that is not a reality in our world yet.  Only when we are all given equal opportunities on this planet will we be judged by our actions instead of our skin.  So, yes, it’s a damn-near impossible goal.  We have a long way to go with that, and the best way to see it come to fruition is to accelerate the process.  Teach our kids in school and at home that we are earthlings in this together, that all races contribute to society, and never deny that injustice has been done in the past and those cruel injustices reverberate today and still effect people’s lives.

It’s quite utopian, I admit.  It can’t happen overnight, but that’s no reason to give up the dream.

5.  Are you annoyed with all the media hoopla?

Yes and no.  In one way, the overhyped media can cause one to become numb to the stories.  It’s so in your face everywhere that you tune it out and become annoyed even if at first you were glued to the updates and details.  In another way, the media attention means the issue will be big enough (and it should be) to not be dropped or swept away.  It will stay in the mind and on the tongues of citizens.  When it comes to this type of situation, this is more important than any Kardashian and should rightly have precedence over more trivial news.  Racial violence effects everyone in America and we need dialogue on it.  It’s real and happens every day and its been ignored for much too long.

6.   What’s next for the average citizen of North Charleston?

We’re getting on with our lives, work, and families, but those of us with an iota of reality are increasingly wary of authority figures.  We know power is abused and it will only get worse if we don’t take a stand.  We know the “good guys” in each bunch, but we are aware of corruption at every level, and honestly?  We feel a bit powerless to stop it.  We need our local government behind us, not against us, or we will not feel safe.   The average citizen truly hopes this will be a turning point for change in our society, and not just another lesson in lip-service bark-but-no-bite politics.
