Expletives Are Funny!

In this season of Lent and spirituality, I feel the n33d to share this story with my fellow bloggers.

So...badandy(BA) and I were in alabama a few months ago, returning from lunch. He was driving, and we were still getting familiar with the area. I had been giving him some static about it on the way to lunch, during lunch and on the way back, so i assume he was gettins somewhat sick of me harping on him about directions. That, of course, led me to do it more. (sidenote, i <3 BA) After a few missed turns on the way to lunch, and almost missing one on the way back, we come to the drive to enter the client's building.

Wagz: I think thats where we turn...
BA: Naw...
Wagz: (watches as we drive past)
BA: wait...
Wagz: Yeah...that was it alright...

Now comes one of the funniest unintentional expletives i have ever heard.

BA: "F$%& ME JESUS!"

Now...the thing you have to know about BA is he has a tendancy to speak quickly. His intent, from his explanation was as follows...

BA: "F$%& ME!!!" (pause) "Jesus!!!"

Instead, it turned into an incident of BA requesting sexual favors from the savior of many.

Heres to you, BA.

Been Almost A Week..

Havent posted in close to a how the time flies. Heres a quick update.

Range Trip #3 in 7 Days

Ill keep this short and sweet.

Headed back to NASR with my buddy Keith today. He has some pretty sweet guns, all revolvers except this winchester hand cannon that has so much compression charge force, my hand hurts from firing 5 rounds out of it.

I fired a few sets, at 15 feet and 25 feet.

15 Feet

25 Feet

As you can see, accuracy is getting better. Esp since most of the hits on the 25 foot target is with keith's .357 magnum.

Off to bed...been a long long day.

From a coworker...

Three men are sittin' on a bench.
one's a Texan wearing a Stetson, one's a Muslim wearing a turban,
and the third is an Apache with an eagle feather woven in his hair.

the Apache is rather glum and says
"once my people were many, but now we are few."

the Muslim puffs up and says
"once my people were few, but now we are many."

the Texan adjusts his Stetson, finishes rolling a smoke, leans back in
his chair and drawls,
"that's coz we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet."

Linux is taking over...

Slashdot | Linux-Based Cat Feeder

This could be the funniest /. article ive seen in a long time. The best part is definately the comments at the bottom.

Here are some excerpts...

In order to stay current with all Linux features, Microsoft Feed (tm) will be bundled with the next major release of Windows.

The early insider-only reviews contain the following highlights:
The feeder dispenses 70kg of food at a time no matter what size cat you have.
Users of the feeder must use Microsoft CatChow (tm) or an authorized, licensed, compatible cat food (MS-ALCCF). Non-Microsoft licensed cat foods "may" cause your cat to crash.
The feeder contains hidden, Microsoft-only APIs to connect to Microsoft LitterBox (tm) and Microsoft ScratchingPost (tm). These products will be available early next year.
To show Microsoft's committment to open standards, any kind of water may be used with the Feeder product, although Microsoft may "extend" the Water Standard anytime in the future in incompatible ways.

I want Chicken, I want Liver...
Linux, Linux Please Deliver...

So can you also set up a cron job to clean the litter box?

Hardware hacking and Python? Pfft. All he had to do is this:
% cat < /tmp/tastyFish
What are they teaching young admins in college these days, anyway?

$ cat "food in tin cans"
cat: cannot open food in tin cans

I was wheezing i was laughing so hard....

Jeff on Dating

How to tell if i have found a bad date...

Jeff: if she stalks you, shaves your head, kills your cat, and converts your NTFS partition to FAT32
Waggoner98: MAN
Waggoner98: nothing worse than file system conversion.
Waggoner98: bitch.
Jeff: yeah...that sucks

Safar RSS - Will Change How I Browse

I cant wait for Tiger to be released, also known as Mac OS 10.4. The main reason im looking forward to it is for the new version of Safari, that incorperates full RSS support.

I never got into RSS that much untill a few weeks ago, when Jman showed me Bloglines. Its a pretty slick service that lets you input different RSS feeds and browse them in one spot online. I.e. create your own online newspaper. I have over 20 different feeds now, mostly other peoples blogs that have XML or Atom feeds, but still good.

Safari's RSS support looks to be incredible. Now if only Safari would come out for PC's, so i didnt have to use Firefox at work...dont get me wrong, me rikey firefox, but its no safari....

Apple - Mac OS X - Tiger Preview - Safari

The Results Are In

Tonight was a special night for me. I found my love.

She is cold. She is black. She is deadly.

She is a Sig Sauer P226. A 9mm handgun that is so money.

I went back up to New Albany Shooting range, rented the Sig that i looked at earlier this week. This gun was alot heavier than the glock i used, and bulkier. This one used a hammer, unlike the glock, which gives it a bit stranger action when fired. Its not much of a change, but noticable. I also noticed that the trigger on this weapon was alot less sensitive than the glock as well, taking alot more pressure on the trigger to make the weapon fire. Im not sure if that is adjustable or not, but i actually liked it better after using it for a while.

I picked up 150 rounds, 5 targets and my ear and eye protection, and i was off.

First Distance = 10 feet.

I put 2 targets on the rack at 10 feet.

10 Feet - RightTarget

10 Feet - Left Target

As you can see, with both of these, i was firing up and to the right a bit. The more i slowed down and tried to compensate, the more it happened. I had alot more luck when i fired through all 10 rounds in the magazine in succession.

Second Distance = 20 Feet

20 Feet - Right Target

20 Feet - Left Target

Third Distance - 30 Feet

30 Feet - Single Target

At thirty feet, all bets were off...i havent shot that much, and at that range, my accuracy was pretty poor. I guess ill have to work on that.

Ill probably be going again tomorrow or saturday. Then taking oyer on sunday. Gonna be good times.

How Thirteen Thirtyseven of them...

Double Standard++

I find it ironic that the person who asked me to delete some comments off my blog yesterday because they were "offensive" to them had this as part of a post on their website. They posted this as part of a Dwight Eisenhower speech.

Don't think you're going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book, as long as any document does not offend our own ideas of decency. That should be the only censorship.

Ohh...the people i know that will whine and piss and moan about I love it


My Fellow Americans:
As you all know, the defeat of the Iraq regime has been completed. Since Congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.

This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the worlds nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell-holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home.
On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.

To Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Yo, boys. Work out a peace deal NOW. Just note that Camp David is closed. Maybe all of you can go to Russia for negotiations. They have some great palaces there. Big tables, too. I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers, and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York.

A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security.
So start doing something with your oil.
Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty ---starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them be saying, "darn tootin."

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. It is time to eliminate World Cup Soccer from America.

To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you and we won't forget. To the nations on List 2, a final thought. Drop dead.

God bless Ame rica.
Thank you and good night.

If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.

Thanks AU, /salute

Why I Love The Second Ammendment - Anti Gun Liberals Need Not Read

As I have eluded to in my previous posts, ive had some personal crap going on. I havent really talked to many people about it, and im certainly not going to divulge the details of it here on the weblog. Sorry readers, i just dont think its the correct forum to do so. If youd like to chat, email, call, IM me.

After the weekend i had, i knew i needed to get out and release some stress, frustration and other feelings that were not helping me get through the week. What is the best way for a conservative male such as myself to do that?

Target Practice.

Thats right. After work yesterday, i took a coworker to the local place to unload some rounds, the New Albany Shooting Range. This place is pretty nice. Its a nice place for enthusiasts(such as my coworker) and casual shooters(such as myself). Their range is incredible. It is indoor, ventilated so that it pulls the smoke away from you, and they have an INCREDIBLE selection of handguns to rent. This being my first time shooting a handgun in a long time, i decided to go with something relatively simple, and picked a 9mm Glock 17c. Its a larger handgun, holds 10 rounds in the clip and had a trigger safety. This thing was incredible. I was so excited to finally get to use a Glock, that my hands were shaking when i was loading the clip. The thing fired great, and i spent about 120 rounds all together.

I had 3 targets, one at 10 feet, one at 20 feet and one at 30 feet. My accuracy, to be expected was pretty decent at 10 feet and 20 feet. I hit the target 100% of the time and hit within the 5 point circle about 90%. At 20, i still was hitting the target 100%, but was within the 5 point circle closer to 60%. At 30 feet, i was a mess. I hit the target about 60% of the time, and within the 5 point circle closer to 20%. I guess its not bad for picking up the weapon with 0 training and taking shots at the target.

The range was pretty cost effective, 15$ for range rental, 10$ for gun rental, 7$ for a box of ammunition a few dollars for ear and eye protection and 50 cents per paper target. I had a great time, the guys were helpful and the range was awesome. Im sure im going to be spending alot more time there, there is a Sig Sauer that is calling my name to be fired, and with this range so close, its a no brainer.

Anyone in the columbus area want to come with me? Hell, ill even spring for the gun rental for you :P

Something everyone should listen to, even if you arent a hacker.

More Food For Thought After My Stupid Long Post...

She told him shed rather fix her makeup
Than try to fix whats going on
But the problem keeps on calling
Even with the cellphone gone
She told him that she believes in living
Bigger than shes living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards
And upsidedown
Dont say so long in the cellphone
Dont spend today away
Cuz today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone,
Like history is
Gone, just trying to prove me wrong
And pretend like your immortal

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every day we borrow
Brings us one step closer to the edge (infinity)
Where your treasure, wheres your hope
Forget the world and lose your soul
She pretends like she pretends like shes immortal
Dont say so long
Your not that far gone
This could be your big chance to makeup
Today till soon be

Gone, like yeterday is gone,
Like history is gone,
The world keeps spinning on,
Your going going gone,
Like sumemr break is gone,
Like saturday is gone
Just trying to prove me wrong
You pretend like your immortal your immortal

We are not infinite
We are not permanate
Nothing is immediate
Were so confident
In our accomplishments
Look at how dark it is

Gone, like frank sinatra
Like elvis and his mom
Like al pacino's cash nothing lasts in this life
My highschool dreams are gone
My childhood sweets are gone
Life is a day that doesnt last for long

Life is more than money
Time was never money
Time was never cash,
Life is still more than girls
Life is more than hundred dollar bills
And oh the town fills
Life more than fame and rock and roll and thrills
All the riches of the kings
And up in wills we got information in the information age
But do we know what life is
Outside of our conveinent lexus cages

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every moment that we borrow
Brings us closer to the God whos not short of cash
Hey bono Im glad you asked
Life is still worth living, life is still worth living

Switchfoot - Gone

Happy Birthday!

My Blog hit its 2nd birthday as of yesterday!

Happy birthday, Blog!


We Were Meant To Live For So Much More

So much has happened lately. I havent really felt like posting about it, just cause its stuff i keep private. Its been pretty rough and im working through alot. I want to thank those close to me for being there for me. My health has been really rocky lately, and ill leave it at that.

Have you read through your high school yearbooks lately? Look at all the things people wrote to you. Do you still even remember those people? Can you put a name with a face? I was reading through those things, trying to figure out what the hell has gone wrong with my life since high school. Professionally, ive done well. I succeeded in school, got good grades, was in tons of outside activities, excelled at work, was a role model to many people at BG and did everything i could to get everything i could out of school.

Personally...ive wasted away to nothing. There was a period of time where i thought i had become a new person. I had 2 serious relationships during college, both of them ended in EXTREME heartbreak. The first one was out of my control, the latest....god knows what really happened. Ive been consistantly chasing the dream of happiness i knew since i was a kid. In my time growing up, i always thought id have some kind of relationship that my parents had. At first, it was the high school sweetheart thing that they had, and i had a great relationship my senior year of high school. Looking back at it, it was the most personal relationship i had. I wasnt trying to be someone i wasnt, i wasnt trying to hide anything or do things that wasnt me. However, i was young and naive. Id give anything right now to have a relationship that pure. It was the only time i felt like i was in a 100% reciprocated relationship. There never was a question if she needed me, or if i needed her. We both knew. Then i did the customary thing, and blew it. Around the year mark, as usual, i botched it. I made some lame excuse, talked myself into thinking id be happier somewhere else, and in the end, all i wanted was her back. But i had wrecked it. The trust was gone, the love eventually was gone, and the thing i longed for so much was gone.

In college, i didnt know what to expect. I was alot different than most of my friends, and my sophomore year, i met and dated someone who i connected with pretty well. I finally found a way to open myself to someone after what had happened in high school, and trusted her with everything i had. In the end, i was betrayed in one of the worst ways possible, and it sent me into one of the worst places in my life i had ever been to. I wondered why it happened. I didnt know if i had caused these things, if it was because of her, or me, or what? Was i still the person that all my teachers and friends admired in high school? Had i changed into someone else that was a bad person?

Now, im out of school, i had a fiancee, thought it was the real deal, and still do in some regards. I connected with this person in a very deep way, almost a 'read my mind" kind of way. However, there were so many core differences that one of us wouldnt compromise on, it just became sandpaper on sandpaper. Was i being inflexible? Was i being too selfish? I dont know. I love this person with every fiber of my being, but i dont know what to do. She has it set in her mind that we are too different, and she thinks she knows what i want, but we barely know each other anymore. I do know that something has changed in her, and i can feel an emptiness between us that has scared me shitless lately. It feels cold and barren, like the love that was there is now gone. I know i love her, but i get the feeling its not reciprocated. What could i have done to cause this? Is it just me, or have i become something else?

I was always well respected and thought to be a model person in high i the same person? Im sure the answer to that is no, but what does that mean? Have i become a better man, or have i become something i would be dissapointed in if i saw myself 5 years ago. I was surrounded by people in high school that told me i was such a great person and i effected their life in such a huge way...and right now, i dont know if anyone would think that. If so, i could probably count them on one hand.

I guess it boils down to me not being sure that i like who i am anymore. Is it because the person i love doesnt love me? Not really, its more that im realizing that theres alot about me that isnt lovable. Everyone has relationship issues in their lives, and i dont know why i cant deal with the bad things that have happened in the 3 major ones ive had. Id love to say, "Live and learn, then move on" from these, but for some reason, the errors and mistakes ive made in these relationships haunt me still to this day. I dont know if its a matter of me not being able to live with myself after causing someone so much pain, then having so much pain caused to seeing a mixture of that happening....i honestly dont know. I spend so much time now wondering who i am and what ive become, and i keep coming up with no answer. Maybe ive become a nothing.

I live my life trying to be one thing, someone that at the end of my life, i would be proud of, and that those i love would be proud of. However, i cant get past the fact that so much has happened that for one reason or another i am not proud of. I dont want to hurt those that i love, but for some reason, around the time im in a relationship for a year, somehow i do something that causes the relationships to self destruct. Wether its me breaking up with them, or causing my sig oth to cheat, i dont know what it is. Do i have some sort of massechistic behavior that i NEED to have some kind of drama in my life to feel like ive accomplished something? Do i not know how to be happy or keep myself and others happy? I honestly dont know.

I know i keep asking all of these questions, and maybe this entry is more for my own benefit than to you, the reader, but im seriously trying to figure out what the hell is going on with my life anymore, and my answer is always a big fat nothing.

Id love to hear any insight anyone may have.


Some food for thought lyrics.

Fumbling his confidence
And wondering why the world has passed him by
Hoping that he's meant for more than arguments
And failed attempts to fly

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

Dreaming about Providence
And whether mice or men have second tries
Maybe we've been livin with our eyes half open
Maybe we're bent and broken...

With her tiny feet splayed in a 'V', the impression of a mermaid's forked tail is complete.

My First Vid Project in a While

Those of you who know me know that I love to edit video. With the purchase of my EyeTv, i now have even more types of video i can edit. I took this weeks 24 episode, converted it from the eyetv format into imovie, and edited it into a 3ish minute highlight clip. Its pretty rough, and i know the music level is too high, however, i think its still pretty good.

Irony Defined.

MSN Search: Microsofts new Great Tool.

Using IM at Work is Interesting

Where i work, alot of us use Trillian to communicate with each other while in the field securely, since it allows for a secure IM feature that encrypts conversations. While most of our conversations over Trillian are professional, there are a few of us that chat socially as well, as you would have in any work environment.

I use the e-platino skin for Trillian, which allows for tabbed containers for your chatting windows, meaning that you have one window with each tab for each buddy you are chatting with. I was chatting with 2 people, both that i work with, one a coworker and one a manager. I was joking around with the coworker, the manager IMs me while i wasnt looking, and before i know it, i was typing in that window while i thought i was talking to my coworker. As you can see below, it turns interesting.

Unnamed Female Project Manager: hmm
Unnamed Female Project Manager: OK
Waggoner98: i <3 boobs
Waggoner98: whoops
Waggoner98: haha
Waggoner98: wrong IM
Waggoner98: *blush*
Unnamed Female Project Manager: la la la la la
Waggoner98: haha
Waggoner98: = idiot

Probably my finest moment where i work....and thats not saying much. Thanks to L1k3rt for reminding me that when it comes chatting, i suck.
