    Today's Zombie 5/6/10

      I'm sitting at the Burger King eating garbage.  He walks in with a younger coworker, clearly under his supervision.  They order, sit and start talking.  The older man starts complaining to his subordinate that another coworker is constantly late and how...

    Stupid Smart People

      What is the most important goal in life? To be happy. To be happy, you do things that make you happy - that could be making money, helping others, etc. A "smart" person is included in all people - all people want to be happy. Smart people want to be happy. Do smart people...

    Drive N' Point

      They are typically driving far below the speed limit with a passenger.  You see their fingers pointing all which ways, their hands motioning here and there.  The point and shake, the holding of the hand up sideways.  There is no particular building...

    The Degrees Of Ignorance

      1st degree ignorance: You're ignorant and you know it.  Most sane, stable, fairly smart people fall into this category. 2nd degree ignorance: You're ingorant and are more or less oblivious to that fact.  A babbling fool, you are.  The 'ignorance is...

    Really? It's Only 30 F$&@$& Pounds!!

    Today I bought a sewing machine for my wife. She is learning to quilt, did her homework, and found one in the area. I was doing my normal 12 mile hike up a mountain, down the mountain, and then back over. I'm 6' tall weigh about 160. When I purchased it the salesman asked me...

    I Know I Am Surrounded By Zombies.

    When I was working in box (at the movie

    theater), my co worker was joking with me saying how customers are like zombies since they always come out of nowhere and before you know it there's a horde of them. So at one point during the night we were pretending to shoot them down lol.

    Mediocre Skills Are Beyond Their Comprehension

    I get so tired of being told I need help doing something, or that some project requires x number of people, "it's too much for one person", etc. The truth of the matter is that the task would be done much more thoroughly and efficiently if I were to do it myself with no one else...

    Void Creates Vacuum

    When things are missing, the void left will create a vacuum.  This vacuum is unselective in what it sucks in to fill the void.  Meaningless things will be sucked into the void.

    Gotta Have Their Morning Coffee.

    Zombie wants his coffee... zombie goes outside to smoke 10 times a day... zombie is a good zombie and celebrates by having a drink. Zombie deserves a break. Zombie is a proud zombie. See zombie's traits. Admire them. Zombie is a cool conformist.

    They Drag Their Corpses Around Performing Ritualistic Acts.

    Democrats, Republicans, Independents.

    They are tricked by their own insecurities. They choose the "lesser of two evils" and are proud of their choice in dysfunctional candidates. Notice me. Heed what I say. I know who's better. I am zombie. Here me babble.

    They Reach That Plateau

      Even the relatively insightful zombie will reach that plateau where they'll just run out of insight.  Like a vehicle with a set of inappropriately low gears, they'll sprint to a certain speed with quickness then top out at 80 mph.  Just a hair above the speed...

    Their "circle" Gives Them Away.

    Today's Zombie 4/21/10

    Memory Of Jokes Past.

    Sheeple.

    I have always called them that.  This group's icon expresses my worldview more eloquently than anything I can write.  My greatest fear is that I am becomming infected by the zombie contagion.  It's so ******* virulent.
