I was glancing at my referrers and figured out that the only way people are finding my blog is if they are looking for winning powerball numbers or wondering what would Flying Spaghetti Monster do. One thing the Flying Spaghetti Monster wouldn’t do (or hasn’t done) is give me a winning Powerball ticket. In case you are wondering how my predictions are doing, the last several weeks have had sums of (140, 221, 146, 184, 200, 158, 144, 229, 130), which means that my system picked correctly 4 out of the last 9 times [which is actually a little worse than expected]. Of course, had I bought all of the numbers for my system and won those 4 times, I would not have broken even.
For the moment, I’m number one on google for “wwfsmd means”. I would like to thank everyone that made this possible…my friends and family,… the good people over at venganza…and of course the Flying Spaghetti Monster, without whom none of this would be possible.
After a costly legal battle, ID (Intelligent Design) was smacked down as the rubish it is in Federal Court. Everywhere I look they are talking about this case. I am glad that ID was tossed out, but I think it stinks that the Dover school district is going to have to pick up the tab for the court costs. I just wish they could send the bill to the Discovery Institute for starting this farce in the first place.
Everyone’s favorite excerpt:
One guy at work is obsessive about making sure the screens for the overhead projectors in the conference room are rolled up. I guess he is worried that someone will touch the screens and leave a fingerprint that he will have to stare at for all eternity if we are using the projector. He is so obsessed that we can be in the middle of a meeting where we aren’t using the projector, and if he notices the screen down, he will stand up, walk over to the screen and roll it up.
Now that I know this bugs him, I’ve been going into the conference room a couple minutes early for our daily 15 minute status meeting and pulling the screen down, but only about a foot. Today it took the entire meeting for him to notice, but he stopped in the middle of an explaination he was giving to walk over to the screen. He knew that I was messing with him, which made it even better. Another coworker asked him if he ever watches Monk.
Our IS department sends out emails to everyone in the company about every phone system or server that is having problems, ya know, just in case you care. We average at least one a day, but when a system is having a lot of problems, we might get 10 or more in a day, letting us know that they still don’t know when the phone service in Russia will be available, for example.
Anyway, Ben set up email filters so that he doesn’t get all the SPAM, so I’ve taken it upon myself to notify him of every email I get from IS. It’s quite fun. Others in the office do it sometimes as well.
