Star Trek Fan Film Sued

Interesting article here worth checking out. Basically, a group of people is making a really well produced Star Trek fan film is being sued by Paramount.

The argument is that this film is really good and they don't want that out there. And judging by the preview I actually agree. I personally can't stand the reboots. They are basically sci-fi action films with no useful story. What these fans seem to be doing, is making a film that is actually more true to the original films with story and dialog instead of constant action sequences,and lens flair everywhere.

I do see the point to an extinct as this is an owned intellectual property, that they are in essence ripping off, but if CBS and Paramount were smart instead suing them they should offer to partner with them and help them make the film. It would be good for the franchise, good for the company, and good for anyone who misses Star Trek and wants it back to the way it should be.

Here is the link to the article.


Douche-Bags at the Gym

One of the many reasons I hate going to the gym are the other people at the gym. This guy was getting ready for his workout and was doing his hair and plucking his eyebrows. Yes, before going to work out, obviously in the hope s of meeting some chick he was fixing himself up. 

It's sad that they need this sign, but it's true. I once witnesses a guy blow-drying his back and chest hair with it.

TNT and the TSA

Really? Did a TSA agent really think that a bunch of people were traveling with dynamite in clearly labeled TNT bottles? Idiots!

My Little Pony Drinking Game

I didn't come up with this game but here it is anyway.

Every time Spike crushes on Rarity Every time Pinkie Pie defies the laws of physics, or says "party", is sad, breaks the 4th wall. Every time Applejack is seen with her family. Every time Fluttershy makes friends with an animal Every time Discord shows up Every time Rarity is seen in a new outfit or makes an outfit for somebody Every time Spike is being greedy about food Every time Rainbow Dash says "awesome" or shows off. Every time Big Macintosh says something other than "eegup"

My Prayers are With You

Why is it that when people are dying or something bad happens suddenly everyone's prayers are with them? Yet they don't care enough about the person to pray the rest of the time? And on top of that, what exactly are they praying for? Are they praying that the person doesn't die, even though they might be suffering? Or are they praying that the heathen gets into heaven after the person dies? If God exists, which of the prayers does he listen too? The person who believes the most or prays the loudest or is a member of the correct religion?

John "The Bully" Boehner Being Stupid

After the recent Amtrak crash a reporter asked John Boehner about Republicans cutting funding for Amtrak and infrastructure. In response to what sounds like a valid question to me, Boehner the  current Speaker of the United States House of Representatives responded with "Are you really going to ask such a stupid question? Listen: You know they (Democrats) started this yesterday. It's all about funding, it's all about funding. Obviously, it's not about funding."  and the sad thing is, this is the top Republican in the house. It might not be about funding, but it might also be about funding.
Some other dumb statements by Boehner:
"We should not be judged on how many new laws we create. We ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal." In trying to justify his leadership of the do-nothing congress. - Source

No Vote Can't Find Models

I made a joke when I saw the image that the vote no campaign is using in Ireland. The couple in the image didn't look Irish to me, which seemed funny because it is about Irish families.

Well it turns out, that the couple in the picture support gay marriage. The couple in the image allowed a friend to use it for stock photography, and the no campaign bought it for that. Apparently the no campaign couldn't find an actual couple who wanted to be the faces of the no so they had to buy one.

Vote Yes Ireland

Living in Washington state where we voted yes to legalize marriage, I want to encourage everyone in Ireland to vote yes on May 22nd. Washington hasn't fallen into the ocean, god hasn't thrown balls of fire down, and people haven't started trying to get married to their horses or other pets. In fact, life has continued on just like it did before.

So vote yes Ireland!

Double The Police Shootings

In this weeks episode of police shooting unarmed people, we have double the shootings.

The first in Atlanta police shoot a naked unarmed man. Apparent easier to shoot him than to accidentally touch his dick by wrestling him and restrain him.

And in Wisconsin police shoot an unarmed 19 year old

Yet somehow with all the shootings the police departments still think they are in the right, go unpunished, and the government does nothing.

UPS Can't Deliver

I love how I always get stuck dealing with poor customer service as it gives me something to write about in this blog. My latest issue is with UPS who have posted about before.
I ordered some books through Amazon, specifically the publishing division Create Space. The books arrived but some of them were water damaged. It had been raining quite a bit so I didn't think much of it that UPS couldn't keep the box dry. So I called Amazon and told them the issue and they promptly reshipped the order. A few weeks go past and I received an email from Create Space saying, "We have been contacted about a package pending delivery. We were contacted today by UPS regarding order #, they contacted via email and tried to call, however there was no phone number in the account. Please call UPS and provide them with the tracking number so you can arrange a delivery today. Otherwise the package will be abandon as today is the last day they can keep it."
Notice they said that UPS tried…
