Mullet IV

Various somehow connected topics.

First of all for today, I would like to greet those from my school who may just happen to be reading this. Welcome, this is André, I routinely go by the name of Axver, and if you are ever wondering what I'm thinking, odds are that I'll discuss those thoughts somewhere in here. Because I love LiveJournal quite a good deal, allow me to slip into salesperson mode and encourage you to get one yourself. Then, at least, it's a convenient way to keep in touch at the end of this year. Collapse )

Again, I would like to encourage you to read and distribute this entry and consider keeping up with this crisis via darfur_crisis. I do not see how you could possibly skip over that entry and not feel a thing. How sad it must be to be so apathetic that you will stand by and remain in the majority that do NOTHING and DON'T EVEN CARE. I feel nothing but sorrow for you.

On a related note, you know you are bored when you begin inventing really bad Christian cliches for your own amusement. Not long after I was sitting in the car laughing to myself at the silliness and triviality of these cliches ('Win, don't sin!'), I found myself in the glasses shop, requesting they look into my reading glasses, no pun intended. It turns out they made them significantly too strong and they have to remake it. Sigh. So I guess that's another 2-3 weeks to wait.

Confuse your geography class! Say the following: "After Russia and China threatened to veto the resolution due to the wording, the USA removed the word 'sanctions' from the draft submission and it passed 13-0. That means there were two abstentions - China and Pakistan. And why did Pakistan abstain? Well, guess where Pervez Musharraf is! He's meeting with the regime in Khartoum!" I got a series of blank looks and one "You totally lost me." I think 'Pervez Musharraf' did it.

And this is where I will call it an evening. Tonight, I have made a vow to do work. Have a good one!
