A Vietnamese guy's green Maverick; rag plugging up the gas tank. Just keep the windows cracked open and you're fine. College is about ingenuity and still being stupid enough to think stupid things are cool or maybe even romantic. Wink

So woof neutral repped me, then later came back and neg repped me again.

I'm so confused.

That homophobe really needs to just make up his wrinkled old mind.

RE: Ranting corner
Right so, am I in the wrong for finding the following response to "We are all Africans" a bit offensive?

My co-worker responds with: "Yeah right, some of us just washed our faces a lot and became white."

A joke, maybe, but a joke in poor taste especially in a lab so multicultural as ours. But suddenly, I'm being given out to for being too PC. Since when did PC become a dirty word? Is it now a bad thing to be PC? Also, just because there are bigger problems out there than racist remarks, like starvation and war and false imprisonment, that doesn't make the comment any less inappropriate.

No, you're not wrong, monster ( Tongue). Plus, the joke is really, really crappy. If you're gonna be offensive at least try to come up with something even mildly amusing.

Also, racism is a huge problem, wouldn't call it "less serious" than others. Plus, it's not like we can only tackle one problem at a time.

Finally, nothing wrong with PC. How we talk about/treat people tells a lot about us. Someone feels the need to ridicule and denigrate others in such a way? Says a lot about them... and nothing good.

That moment when you think that your best friend is thinking about cheating on her boyfriend.

Should be immediately followed by the moment you realize it is none of your business.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Hope you get it back soon.

People I know from Rio talking on FB about going to different gigs in my beloved Santa Teresa. I wanna go, too.

RE: Ranting corner
I had a perfectly good car that I had to get rid of just over a year ago because it wouldn't pass emissions here in TX. I replaced and had checked everything the codes said was wrong and nothing helped. It wasn't fancy, had some miles on it but everything worked just fine and it was paid for.

So every day I see cars and trucks with new inspections stickers that are held together (barely) with duct tape and wishful thinking. They have side mirrors hanging from the cables, lights that don't work, missing windows, bad tires, and many are trailing a plume of smoke that can choke you. Pisses me off, I could be not having a car payment but I guess I don't know where to go to get an inspection for an extra fee.

UGH!
