As Seen on TV

Most amusing thing seen on TV last night...Amish people making electric fireplaces. Check it:

HEAT SURGE! Made by “Real Amish Craftsmanship.”

"The Amish are known for their kindness and humble pride in a job well done. They separate themselves from mainstream society and are recognized for their plain clothing, avoidance of modern conveniences, and superior craftsmanship."

Totally awesome.

“One Step Forward, Two Steps Back”

That’s how MKD described the results of yesterday’s election. Although we moved forward in some regard, states like California, Arizona, Florida, and Arkansas moved backwards.

A poll from Newsvine had more people disagreeing with the gay marriage bans. Not like it matters now, but provides some comfort nonetheless. What is not comforting is reading the comments from people that support the ban. These comments are highly disturbing and fucked up to me. There is so much I have to say on each of them, and yet they leave me speechless and flabbergasted at the same time. Here’s a sampling (spelling mistakes and all...nothing has been doctored):

“Christianity has just flown out the window! Our new Muslim president is proof of that. The Bible says gay marriage is wrong. I say yes.”

“I respect ones right to choose their partner. But marriage is a choice not a right. I'll give you insurance but not marriage. Sorry”

“This is complete crap that California overruled the people and decided that these fags can wed. But California is the armpit of the US.”

“Absolutely! Homosexual marriage should not be forced on anyone.”

“AIDS: kills Fags Dead!”

“I just think that we have a responsibility to our children to promote a moral society that does not celebrate a self annihilation.”

“"Gay Pride"? thou dost protest too much. A very loud minority; please, shut up for a while. Go find your closet again and give us a break.”

“The positive way of wording this: PRO-marriage. To perserve the moral sanctity of rightful marriage, we must fight against the gay agenda.”

So yeah. I look forward to the day where I am no longer a second-class citizen and an abomination of Man.

Thank God

My faith in the American people has been restored. Finally, we are moving in the right direction. I was scared of being highly depressed over the results of the election as I have been the past two elections. Maybe one day I will have the same rights as the average American. For now, I will take what I can get.

First Meme EVER!

As requested/tagged, I am to reveal seven random facts about myself. So I am popping my meme cherry for Graceless.
  1. When I have to pick out a bottle of wine, I pick it based on the label. The most appealing label gets my purchase. I am fickle like that.

  2. I regard my plasma television as one of my “babies.”

  3. I am gassy. Right. Now.

  4. Ever since 2001, I get tired really easily and don’t have the same energy level. I believe that having mono permanently altered my system. But when I was actually sick with active mono, I felt great. Go figure.

  5. If I were wealthy, I would have a personal chef for all my meals and a personal seamstress to custom make all my clothes.

  6. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. Too bad I am pushing 30.

  7. I spend way too much time at work doing non-work activities and can’t bring myself to be too ashamed about it.

All done. That was harder than I thought. But it fulfills my tagged obligations, albeit late. Better than nothing though as the posts have been far and few between.
