Rock on with your historic self

For various reasons, I've spent the past couple days looking through remixes of MLK's "I Have a Dream Speech." And, for various reasons, I've decided this is the best one I've seen.

Financial lemming

Someone I know asked me a while back what I would do if money wasn't a factor, the famous Office Space question. The fact that I'd still write tells me I'm in the right career track, but I would probably get rid of the things I don't like, such as getting up early, doing work I don't want to do, and wearing pants. I'd probably just blog.

When I heard of Smorty, a site that basically pays to advertise on blogs by paying you for blogging whatever opinion you have on topics they come up with, I figured it was B.S. Then a couple of my friends gave it a shot, and Joe said he made 50 bucks in a week, and I decided it was time to go with the crowd.

Obviously I wouldn't be doing this if the site tried to control what I write in any way. Get paid to blog, write what I want, doesn't seem like a bad deal. The only catch is I can't label which post is from Smorty. So, fair warning, some of the unbiased entries to follow may or may not be making me small amounts of money.

Romney wins!!!!11!11!666!!!!

Did the people of Michigan vote for the most evil looking person, or do republicans just look evil when they're happy? Maybe Michiganders love Mormons.

Yes, the correct term is Michigander.

Now that I'm not six, Full House gets more and more creepy

So everyone remembers Steve, the guy that DJ dated for a long time. We're all together in this 90s nostalgia?

Well, that guy's name is Steve Weinger. In addition to playing Steve in Full House, he played in an episode of Scrubs, was the voice of Disney's Aladdin, and by the way, played DJ's cousin in a much, much earlier episode.

I guess it technically isn't as creepy as the season seven episode where Stavros, Jesse's cousin, makes a pass at Becky, but really. He was their cousin and DJ's boyfriend. That's just lazy casting.

Cultural differences in today's BBC

Our concerns in America - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/7183957.stm

Concerns in Iran - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7188121.stm

And, of course, Americans have a false opinion of Iran.
