Whodunnit?

So I found this on youtube today. I wanted to share it. Go ahead, tell me I'm wasting my life. It's true.

My parents are driving into town today and my sister is moving to...Farmington? Well, she's moving to somewhere a lot closer to me than she was. I'll stop wasting away my life at some point.

Please enjoy.

The Advertisement I Would Love To Post

Are you male, single, and looking for a relationship? I have the answer! Have a bunch of great conversations with ME, make me fall head over heals for you, and another girl will immediately come and sweep you off your feet. It's guaranteed to work, I promise. (Disclaimer: If I don't fall for you then there is no guarantee).

Why Don't People Make Sense?

I don't really think of myself as a competitive person. If you want me to be competitive, put me on a team. I will sacrifice my all for the team. Leave me by myself and I will just drift along. (I'm thinking a subconscious version of this applies to my dating life as well. I never compete, so I lose).

Murphy's law says that for those offhand games that I want to impress someone I will fail miserably. For the days that I don't care, that's when I am triumphant.

So that's me. It's a pretty simple concept. I can't say that I understand other people's actions though. Why will people exhaust all their resources to insure that one guy won't win the game, and then force the championship upon myself? I didn't even want to win. I wanted the other guy to win. But behind my back they all decided that I won. Huh?

There is no moral to this story. I'm just scratching my head wondering what is going through people's minds.

They're MY Clothes Not YOURS!

I don't think anyone would ever think poorly of me for choosing my clothes that I'm going to wear the night before. Not everyone does it, but it is by no means a looked down upon practice. Usually the chosen clothes spend the night outside of the comfortable drawers and either on a chair, or desk, or something else exposed to the elements. Such was the case for my chosen clothes last night.

Now imagine my surprise when I went to go get my clothes this morning and found an occupant already in them! Don't worry though, there was no competition. I wrestled my clothes free of the clutches of that dark and evil, little, brown spider. And now I'm wearing those clothes. I win.

Let that be a warning to all you little, brown spiders: if you mess with my clothes, you mess with me. And you don't want to mess with me.

Another Passionate Monologue

I know, I know, every time I actually read my emails from the FRC I always come up with some overzealous cry about how the world should end right now. Well, here it goes again.

This is in response to this news thing right here. So, as I was listening to the debate I wondered how I felt about this. I wanted to look up the Supreme Court case mentioned but do you know how many Supreme Court cases come up when you type it in for 1968? I got tired of fruitlessly getting nowhere. So I decided to actually think about what I believe. What do I believe?

I don't believe that we should hand over all power to the government so that the government can decide what is good and what is bad for society. That's when you get our tax dollars paying for abortion and other stupid stuff.

So I thought about the situation on hand. Well, I definitely wouldn't want MY kids learning to shoot students and then learning that suicide is all fun and games. So, there you have it, parental advisory. However, I also wouldn't want my kids associating at school with other kids who happened to learn that shooting other students is fun and games. This has nothing to do with religion. This has to do with me feeling like my kids are safe. Of course, with more safety comes less liberty. How much liberty do we want to give up?

I think about what it says in the Book of Mormon when Mosiah is instituting judges. Mosiah 29:27 "And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgements of God will come upon you; yea, then is the time he will visit you with great destruction even as he has hitherto visited this land." Well, in my opinion, any society that thinks it's okay to teach your kids to shoot at other kids is ready to have their entire society wiped out by the very kids that learned by them that it's okay to kill. For those of us who want our children to learn good principles, I say we find better forms of entertainment.

I wish we lived in a world where the majority of parents cared enough to pay attention to the games their children were playing. I wish that this game would fail, not because the government outlawed it, but because no one wanted to play it. I wish this wasn't even a debate, people just understood that it was morally wrong. People don't have morals anymore. They try too hard to be politically correct.

My brother said something profound a while back. He said, "These days, having standards is being rebellious." How true is that. And guess what, it's only going to get worse.
