    Stop butchering the language! 

    I’m pretty accepting and understanding of others learning English (because of course I can’t speak another language!) but one word bothers me to no end.

    STAFFS.

    Search the internet and you will see this word is used wrong more often than not. Why can’t teachers add this to their to do list …

    THERE IS NO “S” at the end of STAFF. Staff is singular or plural!

      There are a lot of words that do that to me also! But I have to remember they are able to speak more than one language and I can’t so I don’t say anything!! hahaha

    Overzealous TSA Employees lose Court Case 

    Yes, I’ll keep saying it.  I hate TSA.

    They wouldn’t let a guy go through a checkpoint or board an airplane with his anti-TSA shirt.

    But this guy got so made he took off all his clothes to show he had no explosives THAT HE WAS BEING ACCUSED OF …

    HE WON HIS CASE in court.

    TSA — Thousands Standing Around! – Touching Sexual Areas 

    TSA … that wonderful agency created under Bush to secure our airports and skies from terrorists.  The biggest waste of money and resources imaginable.  In fact, I lost all respect for Obama because he didn’t fire Pistole or Napolitano … because neither of them deserve to be trash collectors much less, the head of TSA and Homeland Security.  Shame on your Obama.

    And Napolitano even lied.     http://www.naturalnews.com/032839_body_scanners_TSA.html

    And Pistole?  Well, I could write a book there …

    So what does TSA really stand for?  Here is what some people think …

    New cel phones. Why aren’t any perfect??? 

    I hate changing cell phones.  It is like giving up on an old friend.  But I realize that with changes in technology, my use of the phone improves and more tasks become easier to accomplish.

    That is, if I can get over the pain of finding a new phone.

    I’ve been a Nokia (Symbian) fan now for 10 years.  Before that I was a die-hard Motorola user.  I didn’t want to change away from Nokia – but they have changed away from me shifting to a poorly designed Windows operating system (my wife has the Lumia and I dislike it with […] Continue Reading…

    You can’t sell used Panties on Ebay. Why not?? 

    Yes, it is true – you can’t sell used panties on ebay.
    Buying or selling worn panties is a particular art for certain people only. Anyone can sell a pair of used panties, but only those in a special league know what to look for and understand how buying the right panties from the right seller is most satisfying. [ebayername] caters to only those who fall into the category with higher standards. It is an amazing experience and well worth it.
    Well, I’m not into the whole used panties and “get a whiff” thing … but I respect other people’s diversions […] Continue Reading…

    Amazon cheats affiliates! Someone doesn’t care. 

    There are supposedly more than 2,000,000 (2 million) affiliates all trying to earn $3-4USD from Amazon.  Even with these terribly low commissions, Amazon still tries to shave money from affiliate payments by finding ways NOT to pay.

    Here is a great example.

    My neighbor (same building – hence same shipping address) mentioned to me that he was looking for a new camera.  Quick as a flash, I wrote down my website and asked him to look online and see if anything on my site would fit the bill.

    He looked … and placed an order for the camera .. then placed an […] Continue Reading…

    TSA wasting Taxpaper money … In the name of “terrorism” 

    The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform says the Transportation Security Administration is wasting taxpayers’ money again, this time by holding more than 5,000 pieces of security equipment, valued at upwards of $180 million in a Texas warehouse … 85 percent of the equipment in the TSA warehouse as of February had been stored for more than six months and 35 percent of it had been there longer than a year.
    That is $180million USD!  For more than one year!  Sitting in a warehouse not being used!  And as taxpayers, we PAID for that equipment because it was needed […] Continue Reading…

    Sears owning and trying to run KMart … 

    What made Sears, America’s stodgy old mall-retailer think they could operate a discounter like Kmart?  Kmart was suffering and making stumble after stumble … they just didn’t get it … and merging with Sears just made it worst.

    Who buys from Sears?  I used to – years ago.  A lawn mower here, an exercise machine there … and maybe a few clothing items if they were on sale.  They used to have the best prices on Levi’s mens jeans .. but that went away.  Now JCPenney keeps their prices below Sears … and has for many years.

    And KMart … do […] Continue Reading…

    Cancelled TV shows… 

    I really don’t watch that much TV, but why is it that when I find a series that I like, it gets cancelled.  And the shows I dislike, stay on the air for a gazillion seasons?

    Pan am cancelled.  Fun show – interesting story lines.  Fun to see the idea of “service” in the airline industry.  Nice to see young flight attendants … which is like seeing a dinosaur now … all I see now are flight attendants already collecting social security.

     

    Miami Medical cancelled.  Great cast, excellent story line, interpersonal relationships, etc.  Fun to watch.

     

    Combat Hospital cancelled.  Kind of an […] Continue Reading…
