College

I work for a rather large company, and before that I worked for a huge company. Both companies had one thing in common, and I see this trend really growing in american business. They hire anyone with a college degree to run the company and work in the divisional level or above. Now, when that is the only qualification you seek for a person that is going to be making serious choices for the direction of your company, I get very worried about the futue of America. I work for a company that is very involved in technology, wouldn't you want someone who actually has some hands on experience making the serious choices. Yet, every company I see, has people who have never even been in the field, never gotten there hands durty what so ever. I recently took a class for work, the book we used was written by some stooge from the corporate office. She came to take notes on how we liked the book, so they could make revisions before it was used to train new hires. As we went through we found lots of errors, but what was most allarming, was the fact that the person, who wrote the book on how to properly use the tools, and the safety techniques we were to use, had never even seen the tools in question. Never seen a picture, never held them, or used them. I have a friend that worked for Intel, in Gresham, OR. Every few weeks they got another supervisor. One week in was a kid fresh out of college with a degree in agricultre, the next week a degree in forestry, ect, ect. What do those degrees have to do with making computer chips? What ever happened to starting out with a company, and working your way up? What happened to having people run your company that actually know how it works. It is now almost impossable to start at the bottom and work your way up to the top. This is a real sad state, and it is no wonder why we are loosing our jobs to over seas companies. We pay people more then they are worth, and hire based on there degrees, not on there skills. We need to take back our country, and our jobs before it is to late.

Survivor

Oh, yes, once again it is time for another brain numbing season of reality shows. I must admit that I have watched survivor in the past, but lets face facts, am I the only human on the planet that is sick of reality shows??!! You can actually hear your brain cells committing suicide while watching some of these things. How many fucking islands can we strand castaways on, and how many sick discusting things can we make them eat, till we just say enough is enough. Lets make survivor a real interesting program. Lets drop them off in the Yukatan in winter, and lets see how long the bikini clad contestants last. How about smearing them in seal blood, and then having them run across a polar bears teritory, and see who makes it to the finish line. That is real survivor. Or how about next time there in a jungle, you can have everyone wade out into the water and urinate, and see who gets to keep there winkies at the end of the show. And who has to have some parasites removed from theres. Instead of a camp, how about a 100 mile hike up the amazon river basin, with 50lbs. ruck sacks with a real tight time margin. No more voting off people, if the animals get them, or they get so infected with parasites, or my favorite malaria, and they can't continue, there out. Oh, oh how about this, re-trace the jorney of Dr. Livingston, from the Island of Madagascar, all the way to Lake Victoria, but this time with out all the portors to carry everything. Sure there are some unstable governments in Africa, but that just makes it more of a challenge. I say if no one dies, its not a real show about survivor now is it? If eveyone survives, then whats the fucking point? Oh, how about survivor east L.A.? 20 white Klan members dropped off on a friday night in Compton, must survive for 10 days and nights , and make it out alive. Oh, my favorite, Christian survivor, were 20 devoute christians are dropped off in the Islamic city of our choice, and must survive 20 days, and nights. Points are scored by conversions and lack of brutal beatings recieved. I have no problem seeing someone winning a million dollars for spending 20 days is iran, and getting 3 conversions. That person trully deserves that money. It's not like they were just laying on a beach in a bikini back stabbing each other. And on the plus side, if no one makes it out alive on any of our games, well, is that really much of a loss for our society? Just think of it as thinning the hurd, in a fun and entertaining way.

Life is complete

Well, I can honestly say I have seen everything now. I work with a guy that i constantly changing his facial hair. Like every few days he has changed his side burns, goatee, or something, and always makes a big deal out of it. My life is now complete, I have finally found a guy that can't even get playing with himself right!!

LDS Temple in Mesa

Wife took me to this temple to walk around the grounds, very pretty place.
