Life is Too Short to Hate Your Job

My mom called me up a couple of days ago to give me some not-so-great news. My dad got fired from his job.  Now, those of you who know my dad know that he isn't "fire-able" material.  While he was employed at his full-time job at the prime of his life, he happened to "keep a job" for more than 15 years, so...  ...

Optical Illusion

Last night before going to bed, I (well my wife) discovered an interesting phenomenon. Some type of optical trick/illusion, I don't know what is actually causing it. I was playing with a laser pointer with the lights out. It was completly dark and my wife asked me if I could see the blue streak seemingly coming out of the red dot. At first I didn...

Microsoft Makes Me Sick
PoeticIntensity

I don't even know where to begin on this one.  Maybe I'll start by screaming in frustration due to Microsoft's complete incompetence.....  or is it incompetence?  Maybe, and more likely, it's completely calculated, thought-through, planned, and executed.... Apparently, Microsoft sent out an "automatic update" to all XP a...

Temptation and Personal Battles

0 comments
Something which I've never even tried to verabalize, let alone write down is the subject for today's blog. I've always thought there must be something wrong with me, since I've always been almost at the point of being tormented spiritually.  That may seem a bit harsh, and surprising to those who know me, but it's true.  Never actually ...

XFCE - Bouncing-back Window Focus
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Since I recently have switched to XFCE on my work computer (all home computers are still running Gnome), I've noticed a strange behavior with window focusing.  I'm trying to decide whether this is a feature, or a bug. What happens, happens once-in-a-while and I can't get it to do the same thing consistently.  Whether it's because this i...

Mustang's Fog-lights?
PoeticIntensity
1 comment
I simply must blog about this - quickly. When I arrived home from a trip through some pretty insane snow tonight, I simply had to test a theory I had about my 2007 Mustang GT's headlights vs. fog-lights.  (Apart from the chance to drive like a maniac in the snow, which I absolutely love) So, I get my car going about 25 down a very lowly-li...

I got one of those PayPal security keys a little while ago. I got one after hearing about it from the security now podcast. Now I use it for PayPal and Verisign's OpenID.

Imagine for a moment you had no idea about the atonement of Christ. Now imagine you sitting there and listening to what I have to say. And the first thing you hear are the words, "God demands perfection for salvation." Not sure about you, but for me, that creates a sort of sinking feeling inside...  I put "perfection an...

As many of you know, I recently upgraded the exhaust on my 2007 Mustang GT. Well... Tonight, I had to take it out to see what I could do.  So, I went the usual route and didn't find much more than a crappy 90's Eclipse that wanted to play.  After almost an hour of dragging back and forth, lady luck just didn't have it in for me tonight...

Alma : 36 - "Prosper"

Hmm...  What could "prosper in the land" possibly mean?  This is something I've fought with recently, while think about prosperity in general.  When someone says, "That guy has really prospered", or "she is really prosperous", what could it possibly mean? Some things in the scriptures are mentioned on...

Surprisingly... I'm not sure if it's because of my attitude or what, but I believe I got a bit more out of this chapter than I have for the rest of the Isaiah stuff. I'm not 100% sure what the branch is that comes out of the root of Jesse, but I've been told that is refers to the prophet Joseph Smith (D&C 113). I also believe that when it s...

To tell you the truth, I didn't get much out of the scriptures tonight.  There was a verse from which I thought I could derive meaning. Verse 15. The ax depends on him that wields it for its strength.  Alone, it is nothing but wood and metal.  Used by a person, it can become a powerful tool.  Same thing with a saw. I took ...

I wish I could describe to you how much gratefulness is in my heart for whoever is in the skies who loves me. The prophets say He is Jesus Christ - and I believe them.
