I don't know about it...

According to Zalmay Khalilzad, the outgoing USA ambassador to Iraq, USA and Iraqi government forces are talking to insurgent groups in Iraq about working together to fight al Qaeda terrorists. That sounds like a good idea, as long as the insurgents are serious about it, if they aren't then it sounds like the worst idea anyone's ever had. But I guess that if the Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland can finally work together, just about anything is possible.

1 September 2008

That's the date that the American Democrats in congress are attaching to a bill to have the American troops out of Iraq. Good job guys.
If the bill passes, President Bush will definately veto it. That's a good thing. I hope that the Congress doesn't manage to get a bill approved with a set date on it to have all USA troops out of Iraq.
Of course the Americans aren't going to stay in Iraq forever, but if you went to a store with a sign saying "No Shoplifting" and sensors by the doors and security cameras and guards, there would be no one shoplifting, or at least not too many, now if you put a sign next to the no shoplifting sign that said, "All our cameras and sensors and guards will be gone next Friday, then there's going to be a whole lot of shoplifting on next Friday...

Wii 

March 21 [Wed], 2007, 13:13
My wife got me a Wii as an early birthday/holly cow there's once in stock present.
It's a great invention, it will turn a whole lot of fat, lazy, game fan geeks into fat sweaty game fan geeks.
Just kidding.
I'm really impressed by it, there's a whole lot of potentional in the system. With the internet connection you can have more than just game downloads, you could get game demos sent to you for the Wii, and since it uses a wifi connection and so does the nintendo DS, you could get DS game demos sent to you. And you could get on demand TV shows and movies.
There's got to be a lot of other things to use the Wii for that I haven't thought of, since I'm not really all that smart, I just hope it will be put to good use.

I don't Know 

March 20 [Tue], 2007, 10:54
I haven't written anything for a while...

It's the four year aniversery of the war in Iraq. The USA congress is debating over setting a date for the withdraw of troops. That would be a huge mistake. The troop increase in Iraq is making a difference and starting to make Iraq safer. If congress sets a date to have all the American military out of Iraq, then that will just be the date that the terrorists and insurgents have to lay low until. If the USA troops continue to fight the insurgents, and go after them, making arrests and bringing them to justice, then that will enable the Iraqi government to function and show the Iraqis that there are consequences for their actions, then the American troops can leave and Iraq will be safe and peacful.

Green Tea 

March 10 [Sat], 2007, 16:39
Green tea is really good for you health. It's got antioxidants (I don't know what those are, but I've heard they're good.) and it raises your metabolism so you can lose weight. Maybe that's why Americans are so fat.
I've had Japanese ocha, it's pretty good. But for some reason American companies need to mess it up.
When I'm at work I usually drink Diet Coke. I know that's not really healthy either, but I like the taste and the caffeine. I went to the little snack bar we have at work to get one, but their Diet Coke was all sold out. I looked at their cooler and saw some Lipton Citrus Green Tea. I thought, "Hey, green tea is pretty good, and it's healthy." So I got some.
Lipton Citrus Green Tea is not ocha. There's some green tea in it, but it's pretty far down the ingredients list on the bottle. It was mainly water and high fructose corn syrup. It didn't taste like green tea, and it didn't even taste like citrus very much, it tasted like Dydo's Mixed Nectar. Really thick liquid sugar.
It makes me wonder how many people are drinking three or four or more bottles of this citrus green tea every day because they think it's healthy, and just getting fatter and fatter because it's nothing but wet sugar.
That's just wrong, and I think Lipton should put some kind of easy to see and read note on the label explaining that the drink isn't healthy. That's the only reason they call it green tea, to trick people into drinking it because they think it's good for them.

Second life 

March 05 [Mon], 2007, 10:18
There's this game called second life. It's just like real life except you don't have to go outside or see the real people you're interacting with. At least I think that's the gist of it, I've never played the game, and don't plan to. Finding a place to live and going to the store and walking around doing things are all skills I am pretty good at doing in real life, so I don't need to do it in a game. But some people take it too seriously.
Some one got upset since, just like in real life, people with more money than him could buy better or nicer things and had an advantage since in the game people use real money. So he did what any reasonably insane person would do and set off some bombs.
I don't know how much damage the bombs did and I don't know what it takes to rebuild stuff in the game since none of it is real anyway, but there is real money involved in the game and so this bomber is causing problems in real life too. He is a terrorist. He hasn't killed anyone yet, but he should have criminal charges brought against him. And if blowing stuff up to get his way sounds like a good idea in a computer game, how long until a person like this decides that blowing stuff up because he doesn't like something is a good idea in real life. He should be put in prison. Maybe send him to Guantanamo Bay with the real terrorists.

Nuclear Iran 

February 25 [Sun], 2007, 1:43
Iran won't give up its nuclear program. It won't stop uranium enrichment. I don't blame Iran, I probably wouldn't either in the position they are in.

George W Bush, back before the USA invaded Iraq, called Iraq, Iran, and North Korea an Axis of Evil. Out of those three countries, North Korea is the biggest threat to the world, and always has been. So why did the USA invade Iraq and not North Korea? Well one thing, which is probably standing out in the minds of Iran's government, is this: North Korea has nuclear weapons, Iraq did not. So if you have nuclear weapons and you are crazy enough to use them, the USA will talk to you and offer you money and play nice with you, but if you don't have nuclear weapons, the USA will invade your country...

If I'm running the government in Iran right now, I can't wait to test a nuclear bomb. Especially the way Bush's people keep talking, it sounds a lot like the kind of talking going on about Iraq back in early 2003.

The way to go is this: Iran says they want a nuclear program for power plants, and that makes sense, if they have nuclear power plants, then they can sell more oil to other countries since they won't be burning it themselves for electricity. Iraq's right next door to Iran and the USA can more or less do what they want there. Get the violence in Iraq under control, and build some nuclear plants there. Then sell that electricity to Iran. As long as the power is cheap enough that Iran can buy it and still makes a profit selling their extra oil, every one's happy. Then the USA can get down to business and take care of Kim Jong Il and all his craziness.

Money in extra dimensions 

February 23 [Fri], 2007, 11:07
Physicists think there are more dimensions than just the ones we know about and can see and move around in. Normal people can only use three dimensions, height width and depth if you need to measure them, and I think usually X, Y, and Z on a graph. (If you are a physicist, or just happen to know more about all this than I do, feel free to point out how ignorant I am.)
Anyway, so there's supposed to be more than just the three dimensions. Some one in the San Francisco area managed to acquire the property rights to the extra dimensions, and now he's selling them. What I've heard is that this property is going for about $12.50. I don't know how much of an extra dimension you get for $12.50, I don't even know if anyone can measure extra dimensions, probably not in any way someone who has less than 20 years of education can understand.
As far as I'm concerned, (and again, go ahead and point out my ignorance) there are no extra dimensions. You can't see it, feel it, smell it, or go there, so it doesn't exist. Yeah, people aren't going broke buying up these extra dimensions, but they are buying something that doesn't really exist. That's some kind of scam. I need to figure out something that doesn't exist that people will pay money for...

Grudge 

February 20 [Tue], 2007, 14:03
I got the DVD of Grudge 2 last weekend, and I finally got to watch it this weekend. It was a pretty good movie. I was a little surprised though, in the special features section Shimizu Takashi said that he didn't want to do another re-make and would only direct Grudge 2 if it was an original story, not a re-make of Juon 2. It was mostly an original movie, but I thought that a lot of it seemed to be the parts of Juon that didn't make it into the first Grudge movie. Like the way the main character dies at the end and the part about the dead school girls haunting the living school girl.
I like Japanese horror movies. I want to get Noroi... but my wife thinks I will get cursed if I watch that. Has anyone who reads this seen Noroi? Is it worth getting cursed to watch?

North Korea/ Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea 

February 18 [Sun], 2007, 11:19
What are the chances that North Korea will actually dismantle its nuclear program? I don't think we can trust them...

Happy Birthday Kim Jong Il
