Late Night Ramblings, 8-14

My brother got a new iMac G5 desktop. He thinks it's better than mine, but I very much like my iBook G4. I'd probably marry it or something, but having that type of relationship with your computer is fairly wrong. While any relationship can be considered an awkward situation, one with a computer would be particuarly awkward. At the wedding, it would be "do you iBook G4 take Daniel to be your...whatever he is to you?" To which the iBook G4 would reply with the growling sound it makes when you turn it on. If you own a Mac, you probably know what I'm talking about.

I don't like eating around my cats. They always stare at me with those "GIVE ME A BITE OR PET ME OR LEAVE MY HOUSE, DAMMIT!" eyes. I love them. I really do. But they scare me.

There's a picture or three of me out there somewhere now with my tie around my head and my collar popped. Interesting. Speaking of which, I wore a suit today for the first time in a long time. Pretty different from what I usually wear.

A job in journalism typically means the end of any type of social life. The busiest nights are Friday and Saturdays. Of course, given my history of sitting around watching tv on those nights, it would probably serve as a boost to my standing in the outside world.

I've started playing this online game called "Nation States." Basically, you have a country that can be named anything you want. Mine is The Confederation of South Aardvarkland. Everyday, you have an issue or two that will decide the fate of your country. Currently, mine is a liberal paradise, but I'm considering turning psycho (or George Bush) on it. I should also consider trying to lower my level of dorkdum.

Talking about the price of gas has turned into the new talking about the weather. In the elevator? "I can't believe how much I spent on gas today!" Out to lunch? "Can you believe the gas prices?!?" Want to talk to the person in the bathroom stall next to you? "I've got your $3.00 a gallon gas right here!"

Speaking of oil products, any society that bases its entire power supply on a non-renewable resource gets what it deserves. Not to be cryptic, but the next century is not going to be much fun. Gas prices are just the beginning. We're running out of oil. Fast. Honestly, I'd love to think some alternative fuel source is going to come along and save us, but it's impossible. For that to work, we would have had to begin researching in the early 1900s. To get a good, reliable alternative fuel source in the mainstream market would take nearly a century to get in place. Everything in our society is built upon oil. Plastics, food production, manufacturing and other industry equipment. Hell, we would need oil to produce the equipment needed to produce the alternative fuel source. It's not going to be fun and we're going to have to figure a way to survive.

That last one was a pretty big downer.

I have a little brother. His name is Philip. Philip is 21 years old. Everything I say, Philip responds with "your mom." Understand that I enjoy the occasional "your mom" joke. But when it gets to the point of where I say "this food smells" is rebutted with "your mom smells," I get confused. Maybe I shouldn't look too much into it, but he's insulting is own mom. Perhaps she does smell. I might just be immune to it, and he is desperately trying to get me to recognize that fact. I doubt it, though.

Philip is sitting 3:00 from me with his computer. I'm going to pester him now.

Goodnight.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
