Hey! I can put up stuff I wrote ages ago, and it’s new to you guys!

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Several years ago I was a student at SMU, in the Dallas area. In fact, if you go to the home page of my site, you can see an ad for my old school.

So while I was there, I would occasionally read the student paper. And one day, upon reading the school paper, I found the following opinion piece.

A Warning Has Been Issued.

For those that don’t want to read it, in a nutshell it states: “The bible should be interpreted literally, and anyone who attempts to interpret it is going to hell for disagreeing with me.”

Also as per school policy, the article had a picture of her with it. She was not wearing a hat. This is significant later.


Zombie Story Part 2

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

This is the second part of a story of zombies during the revolutionary war. As I said before with my previous story, any comments of constructive criticism are appreciated. I shall continue this story until it’s end, and by the way, I know not when that end will come. I should let you know that I am hoping to get another story I wrote published eventually, so any help in that department will be met with much appreciation. And now, for the second part of my nameless zombie story.

“But mother, I want to help in the fight against the British, I want to avenge fathers death!” said Jennifer Miller. “You know how good of a shot I am with a musket; I learned when father took me hunting!” Jennifer’s father had died in debtor’s prison, when he was unable to pay the outrageous taxes the king had imposed.

I declare this to be a day of inappropriate puppets!

No post today. I was busy being memorially.

Nurse List

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

(Submitted by Nurse S)

1) Not allowed to give the secretary’s name to the confused patient(s) in the hall.
2) Not allowed to play with a bed alarm.
3) Not even if I’m just checking to make sure it works.
4) It’s bariatric equipment, not “big boy” or “big girl” (chair, bed etc.).
5) Not allowed to give telemetry patients sternal rubs if they are sedated. It causes the heart monitor to go crazy, and sometimes people run to the room.
6) Ok, I can give them sternal rubs, but make sure I answer when asked if I need any help.
7) Staff emergency buttons are not toys.
8) Not allowed to tell patients they are idiots.
9) Not allowed to tell patients they are drug seeking.
10) Not allowed to tell patients that they are a pain in the ass
11) Not even if 9-10 are true.
12) No mentioning the “Q word.”
13) If I mention the “Q word” I will get the next admit, and they WILL be a pain in the ass.
14) No talking about codes.
15) Because if I do, one is more likely to happen.
16) The floor is not the psych ward, even if it feels that way.

Cinematic Greatness

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

Sometimes, maybe once a generation or so, a movie comes along that transcends mere film. It isn’t a piece of celluloid, so much as it is a cultural event. More than that, a cultural shift. A movie that makes you reexamine you beliefs, and even your very self. A movie that will leave it’s permanent mark upon your soul.

The creators will find that magic combination that allows them to breath precious vitality into a story, and make it seem as real and as pertinent to you as events that you actually experienced for yourself. And for the rest of your life, you will be able to look back at the moment that you first sat down to watch it, and you will say to yourself:

“This. This was the moment that everything changed for me forever!”


Broken Arrow: The Air Force almost A-bombed Goldsboro, NC

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Here are links to two consecutive videos on a lost atomic bomb. By the way, I got a lot of buffering pauses; that could just be me.

Part 1 (2:30): http://www.wral.com/lifestyles/travel/video/5050531/

Part 2 (2:21): http://www.wral.com/lifestyles/travel/video/5059120/

Briefly, a B-52 crashed in 1961 with two atomic bombs on board. One was found. The other one never has been completely recovered. I’d heard everything on the video before except I don’t remember hearing the size of the bombs (megaton range) or how long they looked for the missing bomb. Oh, my dad said that he and one of his cousins went to the crash site to go looking around.

Zombie Story

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Well, online I have to say, clinic I got bored and seeing as I enjoy writing fiction, anesthetist I decided to work on the story about zombies in the Revolutionary War, as per a comment somebody made on one of the stories dealing with zombies, I forget which one. If I get good comments on how this is going, I will continue this story, and any constructive criticism is appreciated. And now, without further ado, the result of random boredom.

The sun never sets on the British Empire. That’s what Frank Smith thought to himself, serving his king, putting down rebels in Africa. He and his men were deep in the jungle, shooting the savages that refused to bow to the English. It was then that one of the savages managed to get close and took a bite out of Frank’s hand. He then pulled out a flintlock pistol and shot the disease-ridden bastard in the face, splattering his brains on the trees. The rest of the savages lay dead or dying in the ground.


Don’t Hitchhike Without It

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

While my unit was training for our deployment to Iraq, we were stationed at Camp Shelby, Miss. While we were there, the rule about females in the male barracks, and so forth, was treated a little loosely.

The general rule was, no one of the opposite sex in barracks after 9pm. If someone of the opposite sex wanted to enter the barracks, they’d have to call “_____, on the floor!”, and wait for an “all clear”.

We had a female SGT who generally didn’t wait for the “all clear” before coming into the barracks, and a few of my roomies complained about it. Nothing was ever done about it, so one of my buddies decided to take matters into his own hands.


Tiny Zombie Bugs

Monday, May 18th, 2009

Well, with the recent (possibly justified) zombie panic, I was surprised to find this article in my Slashdot RSS feed:

Texas Makes Zombie Fire Ants.

An excerpt from the original article:

It sounds like something out of science fiction: zombie fire ants. But it’s all too real.

Fire ants wander aimlessly away from the mound.

Eventually their heads fall off, and they die.

The strange part is that researchers at the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M’s AgriLife Extension Service say making “zombies” out of fire ants is a good thing.
