People must be retarded. They see that I have this website and they think "Augh, what a narcissistic fag". Don't that understand that maybe I'm not like that?

Let me tell you the story being this website.

My family has problems with depression. Yea, really, so does the rest of the world... but still, people can deal with them in unique ways. I'm not one to pop some pills. I just don't think that should be the solution for everything. I also never hope to do one of the "clinical studies". However, I still need SOMETHING.

Thus was born

It's a way out.

Yea, it may sound kind of childish, but it has thus far proven very effective. It's something I'm proud of. It's something I can talk about. It's something I can go to when I'm feeling down, or feeling bored. It also helps me be an optimist rather than a pessimist. Instead of looking at everything I'm doing wrong and sulking in my own sorrow, I think of accomplishments I have made, and everything I have done that has made a difference. I look at what I have going for myself. Sure, it might not be much compared to some people, but at least it's something.

So all you other people out there, keep popping your pills. I hope they work for you. As for me, I'm seeking the alternative.


Inflation is a Conspiracy!

2007 Jul 12 10:43PM

I was watching PBS the other night, and there was a very interesting show about appraisers called The History Detectives, and on it there was a dollar bill from when the country was first founded. The show went on and went into some really interesting information about the dollar bill and where it came from. It turned out, the dollar bill was deemed worthless due to inflation. The show also noted that a record was turned up of the President at the time has purposely printed a significant amount of money, and the value of the dollar was decreased tremendously. Why would he want to do that? As it turned out, the United States had war expenses it needed to pay off, and by decreasing the value of the dollar, theoretically they would owe less.

This gets me on a couple of different levels. First of all, why would the President want to screw with its citizens like that? Isn't one of the advantages of going to war the fact that it will supply more jobs for workers, so more people can live a decent lifehouse?

I thought into this a little more, and wondered if history has repeated itself. I found a great source of inflation data at After looking through the inflation data for only a couple seconds, I turned up something noteworthy: inflation in the mid to later 1970's was in the double digits! Holy geez, what would be the reason for that? Maybe to help pay off the Vietnam?

So the question is... is the rate of inflation going to skyrocket again? I honestly think that in the next decade, inflation rates could reach the double digits to help the government pay off the "War on Terror". This means we could be in for a tough next couple years.

Economists will probably laugh at this little post, maybe say "duh", but really... this is an interesting thing that is going on, and people should at least consider the possibility


Who Is "Brilliant" Anyway?

2007 Jul 11 8:49PM

I've been thinking a lot about who someone would classify as brilliant. Really, it's kind of circumstantial. I've worked at for about five months now, and I can tell you that I've been impressed with just about every person that works there. They are all so organized. So smart. So, well... brilliant. Among so many shining stars, can there be someone that outshines them all? Of course there can.

Let me introduce Dave Jenkins. This guy is absolutely brilliant. He took, a small company in a small Warehouse in Heber, to the multi-million dollar company it is today. Amid his constant profanity, he always rambles about random ideas, nearly every one of them a great idea. It's like his brain never stop thinking. He knows how to get the right person for the job on hand. He knows how to get things done.

He was an awesome boss, and I hate to see him go. I just wish I could have gotten to known him better before he left. I hope that wherever he goes, he will make the same impression as he did on me to everyone else. Why he got the boot, I'll never know. He is one of the most brilliant people I've ever met, and I'm almost certain I will ever meet. Thanks Dave.

I went and saw Transformers. And let me just say one thing.... WTF. Can we say shaky cam syndrome? My eyes couldn't follow anything! I could hear some transformation going on, and I could tell the special effects would be classified as "good" because of the shininess in the metal, but I mean come on!

And yea, Megan Fox is pretty good looking as well. Not as sexy as me, but she's still alright. Personally, I would have liked to see Camilla Belle play the part of Mikaela. She's a much better actor, and actually better looking as well. Shia LaBeouf did well as usual, and I'm sure I can look forward to seeing him again.

"She did well. She would have done better. He did well" ... is this turning into a blog?
