Back to the Coal Mine.

I always knew the President was against embryonic stem-cell research. I have no problem with that. I don't like the idea either. But there are many different forms of stem-cells other than the embryonic type.

Also, I keep hearing that the pro-abortion crowd keeps wining about how the Bush administration is "banning" the research.

I guess that is true if "not government funded with tax payer dollars" equals banning, then yes, they are right.

On my daily bolg rounds I came across Vilmar's rant and BobF's link to a Newsmax story.

I must say the NewsMax article was of particular interest.

Toyota: The car that you can't fix yourself, so don't even try.

24 May 2005 Tuesday 1100 Hours.

The wrecker came for my sister’s car and hauled it back to the dealer. The guy on the phone (knowing what was wrong) said jokingly, "I think it may be fatal."

My mother well… freaked.

I think she still thinks I am at fault.

@ 1800 Hours the dealer called. It would cost $185 for a tune-up, re-threading of a single spark plug hole, and replacement of the plugs, plus labor. And we could pick it up Wednesday morning.

25 May 2005 Wednesday 1100 Hours.

We picked up the car… it’s fine. I won’t die today.

Oh, and my car. Well, I guess it was some sort of freak. It hasn’t given me a problem since Sunday. I am confused, but delighted.

Again, I won’t die today.

I was expecting the Raptor.

The False Alert of Global Warming

II consider myself a automotive enthusiast.

Just ask me. Any thing you want about any (most) car that have ever been on the road, I could tell you the engines that were available, transmission options, most standard equipment at the time, and a number of other things available.

I know all about all the cars my family has ever owned. From the multitude of Chevys, Fords, Mopars, Dodges, Chryslers, Nissans, and Toyotas. I can (for the most part) explain any problems that we have faced in the life of that auto. For example, my mothers Trailblazer has 13 recalls at the moment, but it has never had a mechanical hiccup (all the recalls deal with a stupid things; seatbelts, lights, windshield wipers, cup holders, front controlling arms, air conditioner selector switch, seatbelts (rear), transmission lock in park, you know stupid things).


Well, then we have my car, my Toyota Camry.

…and my sister’s Toyota Camry.

Apparently I know dick about either one of them.

Thursday of last week I had nothing to do. It was a beautiful day; 70 degrees, partly cloudy, light southerly breeze, perfect.

I decided to clean up and detail both of them.

Bad Idea.

Before I start cleaning any vehicle I check all the fluids and tire pressure. It is just something I have always done and will probably always do. So, I started with my car. I popped the hood and filth everywhere, I guess to be expected when the car hasn’t been cleaned since it started to get cold LAST YEAR. I have a reason, really I do.

Oil. Check.

Power Steering Fluid. Check

Brake Fluid. Check

Coolant. Check.

Transmission Fluid. Check. (Yes I know it has to be warm to check)

Windshield Washer Fluid. Also, Check.

Then I just look at the engine bay; road debris, oil, and who knows what else, is splattered everywhere. So I go get the engine degreaser, a plastic safe engine degreaser.
A degreaser that says on the label the engine should be at operating temperature when used on your engine.

I start the car.

Wait a few minutes…

Spray on the block and exhaust manifold.

Wait five minutes…

Spray water in short bursts on just what I have cleaned.

Wow, it worked! It’s looks like it did when it left the factory (10 years ago).

I clean the rest of the car and put it back in my parking spot.

My sister’s car is next. Her Camry is a little cleaner in the engine bay, but I went ahead with cleaning anyway. Same procedure taken and the car is started. Around the exhaust manifold shows the most crap. I give it a few bursts of degreaser and hit it with water. (Remember the car is still running and continues to run after it is hit with water) I clean the car and park in her spot.

Two days pass before either car is used.

Saturday morning we have to pick up one of our dogs from the vet. My sister opts to drive.

The car will not start.

They try again.

Nothing.

My father and I figure the distributor is wet and we pull it off and go in the Trailblazer.

A few hours later we come back to find it has dried. The car starts with no problem.

But there is a catch.

It has no power; it does not want to rev, and a rough idle.

I figure a fouled plug and pull one.

It won’t come out.

My father tries. Nothing.

So we break out the bigger wrench. We manage to break it lose.

Checking the threads it looks to have been cross-threaded.

We (gently) start a new plug. And it promptly hangs up and bends the first few threads on the plug.

Profanity is shouted.

#%&@! #&@%ing spark plugs!

It has been cross-threaded. The hole will have to be re-tapped.

@#%&! @#%&! @#%&!

One car down: one to go.

Sunday night: my sisters car being dead we (try) to go in mine. Everyone buckled?

@&$*! What the &$#@ was that &%$ing sound?

Is the oil dummy light on? No? Are their any warning lights? No?

I shut it off and we go in the recalled (13) Trailblazer. The same car I have ridiculed for two years about not being finished when it left the factory now they want to solve the problem(s).

I am to pissed to drive.

Everyone is pissed at me.

Why?

I have killed to cars in one weekend, two Camry’s’ at that.


Look forward to tomorrow (today) after I have had time to sleep on the problem(s).

If I find anything new I will be sure to tell.

"A Father's Dream"

I have to begin by acknowledging that the thought of her son becoming a Navy SEAL sniper fills my wife’s heart with dread, as it probably would many mothers. She can’t understand why I would encourage fate by giving voice to such an idea. But I nurture my dream nonetheless. Let's face it, the number of people around the world in need of a match-grade round between the eyes is on the increase, and you and I aren’t up to the task. I’m proud to think of my son filling that niche in the job market.

Okay I've had it.

I happen to be a big fan of the Sci-Fi Channels BattleStar Galactica. Yes, it can be a little off the wall, it can be a little graphic, but that just happens to be why I watch it (Think The Shield).

Also, I may be a conservative thinker by nature, but that doesn't mean I disapprove of everything I see that could be the slightest offensive.

Case in point this weeks issue of Science Fiction Weekly:

Timothy Mogan
zanlong(at)cox.net

BSG Doesn't Need to Be Kid-Friendly I s it just me or have the right-wing moralists gotten too big for themselves? I feel they have. Case in point. Julie Bicking letter "Bad Language Leads to Anarchy". She calls Steve Martinovich ("Swearing Is the Stuff of Life") a hypocrite. I find her just as bad a one. Instead of boycotting Battlestar Galactica because it offends her, and reading a sci-fi book that does not, or going to another show she finds up to her standards, she wants to make it a kid-friendly show. Why does all sci-fi have to be a kiddie show to her and others like her? One other way to solve this, and Julie Bicking does not mind editing shows, why not talk to CleanFlicks, or other editing companies about editing shows of the offending bits? In this way she can have her morally unoffending show and leave the rest with the show the way it is.

I happen to agree that Mrs. Bicking is a little prude when it comes to the graphic nature of BSG. But, why should someone else dictate the nature of a TV show when the ratings are good and it seems that more than a few people enjoy the show for what it is.

Oh, since when has the smallest thing become a political rivalry or an I just seeing the light when it comes to these people?

Why did this happen?

Time for the news.

What has happened today? Nothing really.

However, I did (finally) get a job. (Thanks Uncle Darrell!)

It is some apprentice program with a government contractor out on our local Army base. I am one of two who were accepted. I was told that a couple hundred applied for the jobs.

I am scheduled to start the 6th of June, but they have said the might get me on early. (I.E. next week.)

Yep, this is a full-blown 9 to 5er, or 8 to 4er, or 6 to 3er. I don’t really know yet.

All I really know is that all I make WILL be tax-free. Hehehe!
(I am a full time student. Duh!)

It may only last for the summer, but if I don’t F*** it up I may end up full time all the time.

Now for my regular 2 P.M. wakeup to change to 6 A.M. (This just may kill me.)

And to think I am considering joining the Air Force when college is up. (Their wake up time being at 5 A.M.)

And to think...

This guy could end up somebodys CO.

I said Poopie! hehehe.

GHOST POOPIE: The kind where you feel the poopie come out, but there is no poopie in the toilet.
CLEAN POOPIE: The kind where you poopie it out, see it in the toilet, but there is nothing on the toilet paper.
WET POOPIE: The kind where you wipe your butt 50 times and it still feels unwiped, so you have to put some toilet paper between your butt and your underwear so you won't ruin them with stains.
SECOND WAVE POOPIE: This happens when you're done poopie-ing and you've pulled your pants up to your knees, and you realize that you have to poopie some more.
POP-A VEIN-IN-YOUR-FOREHEAD POOPIE: The kind where you strain so much to get it out, you practically have a stroke.
LINCOLN LOG POOPIE: The kind of poopie that is so huge you're afraid to flush without first breaking it into little pieces with the toilet brush.
GASSY POOPIE: It's so noisy, that everyone within earshot is giggling.
DRINKER'S POOPIE: The kind of poopie you have the morning after a long night of drinking. It's most noticeable trait is the skid marks on the bottom of the toilet.
CORN POOPIE: Self explanatory.
GEE-I-WISH-I-COULD-POOPIE POOPIE: The kind where you want to poopie but all you do is sit on the toilet and fart a few times.
SPINAL TAP POOPIE: That's where it hurts so badly coming out, you'd swear it was leaving you sideways.
WET CHEEKS POOPIE: The kind that comes out so fast, your butt cheeks get splashed with water.
THE DANGLING POOPIE: This poopie refuses to drop in the toilet even though you are done poopie-ing it. You just hope that a shake or two will cut it loose.
THE SURPRISE POOPIE: You're not even at the toilet because you are sure you are about to fart, but *oops* - a poopie

What does the make of this?
