Whatever

Not gonna happen. At least not anytime very soon.

Usually when an upload fails, it's not so bad.

When it fails just 6 minutes away from being completed...

AFTER 6 HOURS!!!!!!!!!! ... that really sucks.

Divshare Upload Hell

6 HOURS and it was just 6 minutes away...

Dial-up internet... oh so nice.

Upgrade?

No.

And I ain't getting a cell phone either.

Ever.

And no, I ain't gonna shop at Walmart

and drink overpriced Starbucks. Ever.

And why the hell would I ever want a car that I can talk to and it will obey me?! Seriously??!??! What the hell's wrong with a 1982 Ford F-150?!? NOTHING.

Give me a break.
Too much technology is helping destroy American society.
Dial-up's just fine. Might piss me off now and then...
but then again I've already put up more shows
than I EVER planned to.

This is just a momentary rant partially stemming from a very temporary haze of depression from the fact that it's going to be about 6 total days before we have a temperature anywhere near Zero again... we might not even see 10 below which means there's almost no way in hell I'm going to get to the gym to run.

I guess things could be worse. Probably pretty idiotic to complain considering the hell people suffer in drought-stricken lands of Africa, and in war-torn nations like Sudan and Congo, and right here in the U.S. where tornadoes have destroyed 80% of the dorms at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee and where tornadoes have killed dozens of people in Arkansas and 3 other states. All around the globe people suffer... kinda makes my little upload problem just freakin' ridiculous.

Rather than grabbing a free Jerry download today,
why not give a few bucks to a charity that could really use it?

Truth be told, even $5 is a welcome donation.

Red Cross

Network For Good

Oxfam

Okay. Have a nice day.

Bummer about that download but excellent point about our needs and what a problem REALLY is!

Amen to that brother!
