We can spend hundreds of billions of dollars on killing people(or pork projects in congressional districts) but there isn't any money for the Space Program? I call bullshit!

Going for the whole "crazed killer" look

Short-short haircut, unshaven, I'm totally rocking the crazed killer look today. I might add that my hair is now short enough that I can see HUGE gaps and I am well on my way to joining my uncles in being bald before 30.

Haiti and observations on the Metro.

My old ship is on the way to Haiti to join the relief effort. It's a West Coast ship, so when I heard about it I assumed that it must have already been at sea. As it turns out it was on the way to Panama.

On the train ride back this afternoon I noticed a cute blonde with long hair. I also noticed that while the front of her jacket was clean, her back was covered with what I assume to be cat hair. I find that funny for some reason.

Some people...

So this afternoon I ended up getting my speech impediment made fun of for the better part of 20 minutes. I'm in the NOC and when my phone rings the first words out of the guy's(from a 4 letter government network related agency) mouth is "where are you from?". Dude proceeds to repeat back everything in an exaggerated manner that is, clearly, suppose to be me before he continues on with his request. Finally I flat out ask him if he's making fun of me, he says no, but immediately stops with the exaggerated repeat I suspect he knew what he was doing.

Watch captain sees me getting redder and redder as I'm talking to this guy, and after I hang up he asks what's up. I tell him, and it seems as if the guy has a bit of a reputation, so he goes ahead and sends an email on up so there is a paper trail.

Seriously, what's up with some people? I know that a lot of folks who are assholes try to be civil and professional at work, so why was that guy just malfunctioning so much?
