Easy Rider..........

Rode my chopper around some yesterday....

Visited my parents and a couple of friends. Some older guy on an English type 3 speed thought it was way cool. I offered to let him take a spin but he thought he might crash it. One of my neighbors has a real chopper and he said mine handles evil.

A fellow blogger is putting up pics of his readers bikes, I sent him one of the chopper parked in front of a bunch of skids behind the local K-Mart. Real artsy stuff :-) It's even in black and white.

Smoke? This commercial might open your eyes...........

I can't tell you how much this pisses me off.

Wow, this is one butt-ugly car. Why do they have to make concept cars so weird looking? Jeez, if it looked like a minivan or something useful-I might consider buying one someday.

I don't fly very often, in fact the last time I flew was 18 years ago when Janet and I visited her grandfather in Florida. I saw this site and I'm kinda glad I don't have to fly often. Here's my favorite.

Not sure when I'll ever fly again, Florida was a nice place to visit but it was hot even in January. We still enjoyed the trip, we think that's were we conceived our daughter :-)

My wife and I were shopping over the weekend and while we were at Wal-Mart, Janet made the remark "Did we just get dropped off on another planet?" Now I'm not the most handsome guy in the world but at least I think we dress appropriately when we go out in public. I'd love to take a mirror with me and whip it out to show the next woman I see that's 50 pounds overweight that a belly shirt is not a good idea. Hey, if you're that fat-dress like your fat. Nobody needs to see that much skin where there shouldn't be skin.

I'm not sure what has happened to society in the past 20 years but people drive, shop, eat and talk like heathens. It never used to be that way, I wonder what the hell happened? Whenever someone is polite, it's the exception and not the rule anymore.

What about people's kids? Holy Mother of God, the next time I see packs of 7 year olds roaming the aisles of Wal-Mart without ther parents-I'm gonna call Children's Services. I swear if I worked at a place like Wal-Mart, I'd probably end up getting fired for macing the little assholes. Oops-I guess I'd be acting like a heathen if I did that:-)

It doesn't help that the Wal-Mart we live near is the #1 store in the chain-the place is packed 24/7. You almost need a golf cart to go shopping there-it is over 200,000 square feet. It's HUGE. Please don't light my ass up about shopping there, half the shit you buy anywhere in the USA is made in China now.

As I write this, one of my yuppie neighbors is out jogging. You would think they would actually go somewhere. Nope. She jogs around our block 20 or 30 times. That's like putting your stationary bike outside and riding it.

We live in a fairly nice area (near the golf course) most of the houses are in the $150-200,000 area- a neighbor has had their house up for sale for the past couple months, we were wondering why it hasn't sold yet. We found out why yesterday. They are asking 260,000 dollars for it! The way we figure it, that's about 70 or 80 thousand dollars too much. I'm just wonder how they came up with such a high price. I'd be cool if it sold for that-the value of our humble abode would go up.

Till later...................I hope I didn't piss anybody off. But I'm sure I did.

Where the crap at Wal Mart is made is beside the point. The reason I avoid the place is that they are non-union and treat their employees like garbage. 'Nuff said.

If you want to be astounded by home prices just come on out to California. I'm not going to jinx myself by stating what the little shitbox I'm living in will sell for. Maybe I'll let you know after I sell it this summer. Seems like a hell of a lot of people must want to live here. It's the only reason I can think of that prices would be as high as they are. Kind of scary, actually.

Wal-Mart has been an easy target for the past couple years because they are so damn big.

I agree with some of what you are saying but the company I work for is also non-union except for 2 stores.

The folks that work at those 2 store make less money then the non-union stores plus they have shittier benefits.

Go figure.
