General Discussion / Re: Armchair Economists, Unite!
« on: September 15, 2009, 11:13:48 pm »
I honestly think that the best way to stimulate any economy is by injecting REAL capital into the private sector.

This doesn't mean printing up trillions of pieces of paper that mean nothing. I mean dismantling the Federal Reserve and putting the control of the currency back into the hands of the citizens. A lot of people don't realize how our currency works. We have all of this paper that represents debt to someone else. Right now, it's mostly debt to China. But that's a story for another day.

The best way to save the United States economy is by doing away with the Federal Reserve and actually holding the higher-ups accountable for every bit of spending that crosses their desks, and every tax that they owe on that spending or receiving.

Just my opinion.

These are a couple of pics of me playing with my old band, Miyamoto. You get to see one of my 7-strings in these pics too! We have videos on Youtube, here's a link to my favorite one, a song that I wrote everything for besides lyrics.

And our outro song lol.

And this was my promo picture.

I still remember sitting in 8th grade taking an Algebra test and hearing the announcement on the intercom:

"Teachers, if you have a radio in your room, please tune it to 600 AM. A tragedy has occurred."

We all stopped what we were doing, started looking around at each other, and then we heard on the radio what happened. We looked at each other in disbelief. Literally, we could not grasp the fact that such a long-standing monument to consumerism had been destroyed. You saw them all the time in movies, and postcards and crap. Then you realize that there were people on almost every floor of the towers. That's when the crying started. One of our classmates had a broken family, and their dad worked in WTC2. Thankfully, he got out in time. This was a traumatizing day for all of us.

Too many dipshits in this country.

Current frustration: my computer still loads erratically. I've tried doing System Restores (twice), I've tried reinstalling Windows (which failed at the last minute), I've tried using a free anti-virus program (which took care of and deleted a couple trojans on my other hard-drive), I've tried repairing Windows at startup (which didn't do much, I think), and I've tried installing the Vista updates. Tomorrow, I'll open the computer up again and take a look inside to see if there's some problem there.


Power supply. I'll bet money it's your power supply or Mobo. Check the connection between the two. Also, if your HD's are SATA, make sure the SATA power connectors are fully pressed in. They wiggle out and cause problems.

The new CD by The Black Dahlia Murder is amazing. I highly recommend it to fans of death metal/black metal. It is amazingly friendly even to the casual metal listener as well, and their new lead guitar player is SOOO much better than John was. Five Stars.

Hey, if there's a better lesson to be learned, share it. :D

Don't go see The Final Destination. I was spared, but my parents went and came back clawing out their eyes. They said it was the most horrible fucking movie they'd ever seen.

Characters, Plot, and Themes / Re: Does Gaspar Age?

Oh, and one other thing.

The Christian God is said to exist on another plane outside of time wherein he can access any single second on our entire timeline. I know only certain points can be reached from the End of Time, but could this location be displaced outside of time itself?

We're off topic at this point.

But to simplify the whole "End of Time" thing, because I noticed someone trying to introduce String Theory, which I will not have in this community, I have an interesting idea. Say one of the time travelers in Chrono Trigger came to the End of Time with a watch... would that watch still work?

Think about it.

Most of their families were very poor. Benjamin Franklin was an illegitimate child.

I don't know what you mean. Aren't most of those guys already dead (I forget if Hawking is yet or not)...? :P

Well, if these kinds of laws had been implemented when they were first thought about in the 1600's, these people would have never been around.

The word "infarction." It may very well be one of the ugliest sounding word in all of the Indo-European language group.

I have to hear that word all the time, thanks to me being in the medical field.

Also, I'm frustrated with old, incontinent people. I had to give a breathing treatment to a man today that had pooped himself... it was sad, but at the same time, it was frustrating... and nauseating.

I'm also frustrated with medical charting. It's such a tedious process.

There should be child-rearing licenses. Based on economical, psychological and mental evaluations at least. You don't pass, you don't procreate. You fail horribly enough, you get castrated because some genes just shouldn't be passed on and the rest of the world shouldn't have to suffer them.

You just killed:
Albert Einstein
Stephen Hawking
Isaac Newton
Benjamin Franklin.

You also just killed Adolf Hitler too though... so I dunno.
