rest of '97
Okay, so maybe this page isn't
as whacky as indicated by my title. But please, don't let that stop
you from enjoying the rest of my homepage. Here's a lowdown of what
you're gonna find here: MY thoughts which may or may not interest you -
they're right below this paragraph (starting in August '98 if you want
to check out the old news). Information about myself, just in case
you're interested. My old chemistry and physics notes from highschool,
if you need a refresher. And quotes... ugh, I really have to work
on them, but feel free to browse. Here, I have links to educational
and music sights, as well as links to pages of people I know.
Thoughts Worth Mentioning
This confirms it!
Britney DID get implants, which is why she's so reluctant to admit it or
deny it! Here's a before/after picture that somehow got in my computer!
We all know what it is, and i'm sure each and every one of us has dealth
with it, if not on the receiving end, then maybe the other. It's
been a problem for years, decades, and even centuries. Stumbling
on my meandering thoughts, I have found a solution to this problem.
Actually, based on my theory, it can be applied to all kinds of CISM's.
In the case of racism, destroy the races. How do we do that?
Through interracial marriages. The Europeans have a huge head start
on that... Most of the time, white folks are rarely purebred. If
all humans can become one race, there would be no need to descriminate
others based on skin colour or language or ethnicity. This would
bring about a new problem: There would be no culture and diversity.
According to the good book, I wonder how all those cultures just bloomed
from the descendants of Adam and Eve... and then just Noah.
for all of you who don't think wrestling is real, take a look at this clip,
which was taken from an ECW tape, which is banned in Canada:.....And what's
even sadder is the tragic loss of our own Owen Hart who plunged four stories
to his death on the May 23rd Pay Per View.
there are those who are blessed with the gift of "normalness" and those
who aren't - they're called "retards" or "special people". Now, it's
okay for a "special" person to be "special", because that's what being
"special" is all about. What's not okay when a "normal" person is
"special". Geoff, what the hell are you talking about? This
week has been a very strange week for me. I have dealt with many
instances where people just didn't use their common sense, intelligence,
whatever you call it. One thing that comes to mind is the donut shop
incident where I was supposed to pick up Fran and take her to a very important
meeting that was already running late for. . I checked
every table, but she wasn't at any of them, hell, there was no sign of
life at the place besides the guy who was working there. There was
no apparent sign of her (although later i found out that her bag was on
the seat, which was well hidden from my view). I asked the guy if
she has seen a girl, about 5'4, wearing a blue raincoat, carrying a blue
bag. He said something like "no, haven't seen her". I paged
her from outside and waited for 5 min, but she never replied, so i figured
something must have happened and I left. As I was driving, she paged
me before i got on the bridge, i turned around, got her message, and found
out that she was at the donut place this whole time! And I'm thinking
"How could guy at the donut shop NOT know who I was describing?!
Fran was the only person in that friggini' donut shop for the longest time,
besides guy. How could guy not even notice that?!" One thing's
for sure - guy is definitely not "special", but he sure seems like it.
Please, guy, and all you guys who arne't using your intelligence like guy,
STOP IT because it pisses me off, and sure as hell, it pisses a lot of
other people off too.
for parents. Apparently, it's happening a lot more nowadays, especially
here where children are waaaay more spoiled now than their parents were
when they were kids. I'm afraid that i have this problem too.
Being pampered and spoiled as a child has softened me to expecting everything
done by my parents. Ugh. This is totally NOT good, and I don't
have the same kind of respect for my parents as mine did for theirs when
they were my age. What's worse is that I have more priveledges (like
having a car, not having to pay for my education, etc) than they did, and
this is NOT helping me respect them more. Contrarily, it makes me
think of them as my enemy... somehow, i think this applies to many teenagers
today. We fear our parents more than we respect them, and we treat
our homes as if they were motels, a place to sleep, eat, and maybe do homework.
One thing I haven't been able to do is sit in the back seat of my car while
my mom or dad drove me to whever it was I wanted to go. This is terrible
- some kids think of their parents as their chauffers in addition to their
maids/butlers/SLAVES. One of these days, I hope we all realize how
serious an offence this is to our parents. It is total injustice,
and i just hope it ends somehow...
yeah, i'd also like to bitch about r&b and how they take old songs
(songs that were catchy and nice to listen to thanks to some other creative
songwriter) from the 80's 70's, 60's, and decades earlier, and they turn
them into r&b'd songs. Seriously, I hope you r&b writers
get some better creativity instead of ripping off old songs. If such
is the case, you should change your genre to r&r - Ripped off and Ruined.
another thing - Christina Ricci, you know, the girl who was in the
movie Casper, and in others that are too crappy too mention, the
girl you always see in magazines, scantily clad in skimpyassed clothing.
Ever noticed how fat and ugly she is? A girl like that who is as
fat and ugly and tries to show off whatever little she has belongs in the
halls of Churchill High school, not in Hollywood. Christina, I'd
respect you a little bit more if you wore a little more clothes, and a
little less raunchy makeup, otherwise, shape up!
i should be studying, but i really had to get this on my homepage.
some of you may know, I've been going to Church for the past...wheeww...
while, and here's something I've observed at my church. The hall
is enough for ~ 450 people or so, yet, every sunday, there are only about
100 people who attend the English service, and 100 people who attend the
Chinese service. During the combined services, we have about 200
people attend. This last Sunday, we had a combined service, and the
place was nearly packed, and i'm wondering - "Cool, we have lotsa people
this time!" Rule of thumb: It's always great to have more people
coming to church. But then, I realized it was Thanksgiving, and that
was probably why they were there...I also looked back on Easter and
Christmas and remembered how packed the church was on those two special
events. It's great that people take the time to attend church during
those very important events that marked the birth and death of Jesus.
What I'm wondering is why people can't find the time to attend during the
rest of the year. Honestly, it isn't much - only one hour of your
time per week - it's not like asking you to come EVERY DAY, just once a
while we're on the topic of church, and God, lemme say something about
all of those who now live a "better" life because they "know God" - or
"God was responsible for me becoming a better person"... yeesh! Let's
not forget that God is NOT only "responsible for making you become a better
person" - God is responsible for EVERYTHING. ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!
Every little thing you could possibly take for granted - like your safety
in getting to school, making sure you get food to eat, making you pass
that test so you can have safe passage to the next leveled course, making
you fail a test so you realize you haven't been working hard enough, making
you get that speeding ticket b/c you're driving too dangerously, making
you get CAUGHT so you can realize what yo'ure doing wrong, ABSO****INGLUTELY
what sucks? The crap you hear on the radio. Frankly, I just
think they play toooo much crap. Or maybe I'm just having a hard
time finding a station that I like. First bitch - they don't play
enough Metallica and heavy shtuff - xcept for Power Drive on Monday nites
- but that's only once a week, and they quite oftentimes play Korn and
Maralyn Manson, who both sound really BAD now.
- too much R&B and dancy shtuff. I do'nt mind it once in a while,
but I can't stand it if I have to listen to it for periods more than 10
min. Plus, the alternative stuff they play is absolute crap, with
few exceptions - Barenaked Ladies, Third Eye Blind - but then they have
crap and crap and more crap coming from Matchbox 20, all of those female
alternative artists (there are a LOT - and they all really suck).
Plus all of those 80's crap! Yeesh. Okay, so Z sucks.
the Fox - they play too much new alternative crap. Marcy Playground,
Matchbox 20, Korn, Wallflowers, Watchmen, and all of that old shtuff that's
recycled that no-one listens to! what's up with that?! they
don't nearly play enough cool stuff - like I Mother Earth, Our Lady Peace,
Collective Soul, Metallica... I'm quite pleased with the Van Halen stuff.
Too much Led Zepplin also makes it really crappy - I can stand a
Zep song per day, but not half a dozen! Robert Plant really ought
to have his voice checked because I've heard nicer voices come out my @$$...!
101.1 - too much Zep, they play plent of new stuff, but nothing very hard.
They also play lots of old shtuff with crappy voices 'n stuff - i don't
mind the great guitarists, but really, there are too many crappy vocalists
in the past.
the Q - a nice mix, but nothing heavy enough to suit my tastes.
the Cube - waaay too much R&B... why aren't there any cool HEAVY METAL
you really don't know what you've got till it's gone. For me, it
was one of my senses that I lost. Some of you may already know that
I have sinus problems, and somehow, this seems to inhibit my smell sensory
nerves to function properly, thus stripping me of my sense of smell.
This has gone on for over a year now, and to tell you the truth, it sucks.
Food is just food. There is no distinguishable properties I can make
out. Great food is just food. Conversely, crap is still crap.(heh).
I also can not smell the sweet fragrances brought on by flowers and other
nice smelling things nowadays. Now this really sucks, especially
if your girlfriend is wearing her special perfume especially for you and
you can't even smell it to appreciate it. I tell you all, you don't
know what it's like to not smell, and I realize how much it means to be
me to be able to smell!
I have just described is a loss experienced by my own self which brought
upon this realization. But this realization can also emerge with
the experience of loss itself, from someone else.
thing that comes to my mind is a home. For us, home's home and just
that. But for a homeless person, like one of those hopeless bums
you see on the streets of downtown, a home is something waaay beyond their
grasp, and until you place yourselves in their situation, you realize how
fortunate you are that you HAVE a home. How 'bout cars? I'll
be lots of you have cars, and lots of you don't. Personally, I have
a car, and I know lots of people who don't, who complain all the time about
not being able to et around, about having to take the bus all the time,
about having to hitch rides w/ people they don't like, and I always get
tired of those complaints... but when I eventually lost access to my car
myself, I understood why those people complained... I felt their anguish,
and so I don't blame them for feeling the way they do, because it sure
does feel crappy.
On the not of relationships, which is something that has been on my mind
lately. I know, I have little to say about it, considering my inexperience,
but hah, you'll have to listen to me anyway. When considering a long
term relationship (ie Marriage) one must consider similarities and differences.
Sometimes (actually, i think all the time), it's the differences that tear
marriages apart. Differences in opinion, values, upbringing, etc.
a couple with two kids. The father is chinese, the mother is white.
Because of there differences in... everything, divorce was imminent.
Now, I didn't want to talk to the guy about it. I'd feel pretty bad
if i placed myself in his position. His kids, who are just about
my age, just about older... well, they're not doing so great (in my opinion).
Their daughter dropped out of school at gr.10... the son dropped out at
gr.10 and is now learning auto mechanics, thinking he'll be able to make
it in life by doing that. Now, i'm not doubting the guy or anything...
but man (damn i feel biased), i just think he could be doing a lot better.
I'm a little young to be touching this topic, or maybe I do'nt know jack.
But what I DO know is that there has to be some similarity in value and
open-mindedness for things to work out. A willingness to compromise.
A willingness to listen to what the partner has to say instead of being
stubborn and rejecting everything and eventually finding yourself in a
hole that you helped dig.
advice can also be helpful in relationships, however short term.
There has to be an element of open-mindedness for things to work out.
If each party sticks to their opinions and do not open themselves to the
opinions of the other party, chaos shortly follows.
