He's Dead Jim - Pass the Ketchup

From Little Green Footballs:

It's true: Elvis is really dead

Yasser Arafat died.


All I have to say about this is: He should have died in a huge fireball created from an Israeli missile.

Maybe now there might be a chance for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians - provided that the Palestinians don't treat this event as an excuse to act like rabid animals.

U.S. Marine Corps 229th Birthday

The United States Marine Corps celebrates its 229th birthday today:

Nov. 10, 1775 -- Continental Congress establishes Marine Corps On 10 November 1775
The Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia passed a resolution stating that "two Battalions of Marines be raised" for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution, sponsored by John Adams, established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps. Serving on land and at sea, these first Marines distinguished themselves in a number of important operations, including their first amphibious raid into the Bahamas in March 1776, under the command of Captain (later Major) Samuel Nicholas. Nicholas, the first commissioned officer in the Continental Marines, remained the senior Marine officer throughout the American Revolution and is considered to be the first Marine Commandant. The Treaty of Paris in April 1783 brought an end to the Revolutionary War and as the last of the Navy's ships were sold, the Continental Navy and Marines went out of existence.

April, 1783 -- Treaty of Paris; Marine Corps disbands shortly after treaty signed. Formal re-establishment of Marine Corps doesn't occur until 11 July, 1798.

Never have so few been so feared by so many for so long.

Just Another BLECH in the Wall

Still recovering from election burnout. Too tired to post about much of anything that involves thinking today.

Although I feel like fried whale sh*t and I have a quiz tomorrow on BJTs - bipolar junction transistors - I still giggle (man style) at the copious amounts of different analysis methods some are using to attempt to make sense of November 2nd since they just cannot seem to allow the truth to settle in.

The Day After

Bright Idea?

I'm thinking that the owner of this car was kicking themselves on Wednesday morning for what seemed like a 'cool idea' the night before....

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

The words written here are his opinions and his observations on the stupid things in life. If you do not like them or do not agree with them: tough squishies. In America, you're entitled to Freedom of Speech not Freedom to Not Be Offended.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
