Journal Journal: t.o 2

Bah... I'm waiting for to come back. I've been patiently waiting for like a month now. I like my theme now, actually, but it's a site that I can addicitively visit.

BTW, does anyone (*cough* Andy *cough) ever *read* my journal? *cough* *cough* *cough*

Bah... School's starting. Might as well IM "SmarterChild" and babble aobut it...

Journal Journal: Lunacy?

We've all encountered weirdos before. The same goes for the rather... uneducated. But I've seen several things that are just bizarre; they lead you to wonder what on earth the people were thinking.

Here's my most recent example - the city of Houston ("Hosuton" according to the original /. post) is offering e-mail to it's city residents. Check out the story here. The weird part isn't the e-mail, that's a cool idea. The weird part is *how* you check your e-mail. You don't get a free dialup account or anything. Instead... You go to public places like City Hall. The concept seemed a little odd, but then I read something else - you can also go to the *fire station* to read your e-mail. Now *there's* a bizarre concept. And I believe the idea extends to police stations, as well.

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
