He who Laughs Last

While listening to a computer show on the radio today, I heard one of the funniest computer stories I've ever heard! In a chatroom in Germany, this kid was trying to convince everyone in the room that he was the biggest, baddest hacker in the land. Well, no one listened to him, so he challenged the chatroom moderator to put up his IP address, and he would show the mod how bad he was by hacking into and wrecking every drive on his comp. Well, the moderator posted an IP address, and this "hacker went to work" He was saying "there goes your E drive, there goes your D drive, and here goes your C drive" Then the person left the room. Wanna know why he left? The Mod had posted the hacker's own IP address, so this idiot fried his own computer! What an amateur!


I was listening to Kelly Clarkson's song Breakaway yesterday, and it really affected me. I'm thinking maybe I should make a breakaway from the past, and increase my efforts to get over everything I've been through. The past can't hurt you except in your mind. I have a lotta years left hopefully and it is so not productive dwelling on the past. Hopefully, I've made this revalation in time to prevent any more damage. So what the first 18 years of my life were hell, so what I'm awkward with women, so what I have no patience? Time and God will get me through this, and I will have the life I've always wanted!

My Favorite Dollar Bill Designs

As ya all know, I collect coins and bills. A while back, I posted a list of my favorite coin designs, now here's one of my favorite note designs:

1905 $20 Gold Certificate-The "Technicolor Note" I love all the colors used in the design: Red,
Yellow, Gold, Black, and Green

1901 $10 United States Note-You've heard of the Buffalo Nickel, this is the Buffalo Note.

1918 $2 Federal Reserve Bank Note-Love the battleship on the back.

1869-1917 $1 United States Note-The epitome of the Utilitarian Design, Millions of them
printed, still can be bought cheap.

$1875 $2 National Bank Note-The "lazy 2"

Any of the large sized Gold Certificates from the early 20th Century-Love the gold backs.

1928 $1 Siver Certificate and US note-If you looked at the reverse, you'd ask if it was a real note.

What's your favorite? If you're a collector, please post in the comments!


Well Gang, I'm in one of those moods again! WTF do I have to do to get a woman to notice me the way I wanna be noticed? I used to think all ya had to do was act nice and treat em good, but with women these days, I must be wrong. All the women I'm interested in just want a friend. Friends I have enough of!

Little Big Man

Quick, who's leading the American League in homers? A-Rod? Manny Ramirez? David Ortiz? Would you believe BRIAN ROBERTS?? After hitting 4 homers all of last season, the Orioles 5'9 2nd baseman/leadoff hitter has 7 in the first month of this season! Now I don't think he'll keep up this pace all year, but it brings back memories of 1996 when another Orioles leadoff hitter, Brady Anderson went from hitting 16 homers the year before to 50. More power for us little guys!

Greed Is A Powerful Weapon

Looking through all my spam email last week, I came across a version of the infamous Nigerian Email. You know, the one that is supposed to come from someone trying to get money out of Nigeria, and asks you to give your bank accout info, and they'll give you part of the money. On the one hand, I feel sorry for the people who have actually fallen for that scam, but on the other, I say they got what they had coming to them! Anyonie who would fall for BS like that deserves to lose a lot of money. Greed is a powerful weapon that scam artists have become adept in using. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Good News!

After spending all day yesterday in the hospital, my Mom found out why she's been sick for the past month. An infection was making her ulcer worse. The doctors gave her the proper medications, and she's gonna be Ok!

She went to the Dr. Wednesday, and the doc thinks she has either a Gall Bladder problem, an infected bowel, or her ulcer is going nuts. She went Friday to have a CT scan, and she'll get the results hopefull on Monday. I'll let ya all know how it goes!

How Do You Compete With A Legend?

I am not a Catholic, but it will be interesting to see how Benedict XVI, the new Pope, goes about his business. John Paul II was probably THE most recognizable figure in the world over the past few years, so the new Pope may be at a slight disadvantage. But what I've read and heard about him, he seems to be more then adeuquate for the Papacy. Time will tell...

A little bit late but....

Well, that damn Crown fell off my tooth again! Last week, I went to my dentist, and he said that hes going to make a bridge. So, I have an appointment on May 9 to have the work done. I really do hate having to have 2 good teeth ground down in order for the bridge to fit, but it sure the heck beats having the crown fall out every 3 months and having to have it put back on!

Another one of my hobbies

I don't know why, but I'm interested in ships. Dunno why, but I guess it's because my Dad was in the Navy, or because I'm a History fan. I have tons of books about ships, and I build models of them.

I just love the evenings this time of the year! It's nice to sit out on the porch, bring a coke and a book, and watch the Sun go down, listen to the birds and other animals, breathe in the nice fresh air, and just take in the scenery.

What A Clutch Pitching Performance!

As a Big Baseball fan, I've seen pleanty of well pitched games, but last night, I think I saw the best clutch pitching performance I've ever seen! In the Orioles-Devil Rays game last night, Orioles closer B.J. Ryan came in in the bottom of the 9th with the O's ahead by 1 run, gave up a leadoff triple, followed by a walk. My stomach was getting quite tight, knowing that the O's have blown several late inning leads against Tampa over the years, but have no fear! Ryan promptly struck out the next 2 batters, then reitred the last on a fly ball for the final out. No harm, no foul. What a performance!

Words Can Hurt

People always ask me why I'm so uptight about getting picked on in school. I'll tell ya why! It really does hurt hearing people make wisecracks about your weight and calling you all sorts of names every day for 12 years. Sometimes, hurtful words can stick in a person's mind for their entire lives, and the effect can be devastating. As you can tell from some of my posts, it has hurt me emensly. The way I was treated has made me severly shy, I'm vitrually afraid of being around people, and it has just messed my mind up generally. It would be so nice if people of all ages could think about what they say before they say it!

Feeling Better

I'm feeling better today, thank God! My stomach has finally stopped doing flip flops, and my head doesn't feel like it's ready to explode anymore!

I Feel Like Crap!

This weekend, I have felt totally crappy! I guess I have the Flu or something. Yesterday (Saturday) I was throwing up all day, and today, I've had it coming out the other end, and I've slept most of the day. Hopefully tomorrow, I'll feel better!

What A Way To Meet The New Neighbors!

When I was a little kid, I had a friend who lived right behing our house. To get to his place, I had to walk up through our garden, and climb over a fence. I did that pleanty of times without having any probs, but one day, I got stuck on the fence! I started yelling at the top of my lungs, but since our house was a good bit away from the fence, my Parents didn't hear me. Anyway, this guy comes running up, and gets me down. Turns out, he and his family had just moved into another house next door, and they hadn't had time to introduce thenselves to the neighborhood. So, this family and mine became good friends, and we kept in touch until they moved away a few years before we moved to West Virginia. Funny way to meet the neighbors, huh?

I am Itching to Death!

Well, Spring's here, and that must mean I'm wearing shorts and a short sleeved shirt, and also that I'm itching to death. I'm itching so bad because I'm allergic to the sun. It makes me break out with a rash that looks like Poison Ivy. The strange thing with this it that you can't stop it from coming, but you can easily make it clear up. this has affected me all my life, and it seems to get worse each year.

Sometimes it takes somthing happening to show who your friends really are. My now ex-friend Jewels, who I have written about a few times in here, has accused me of spying on another yahoo group for the COR and leaking information and stealing ideas. I fervently deny all these charges. You can make wisecracks about my weight and looks, but DO NOT inpune my honor or integrity, or you will be dealt with swiftly and harshly!

A Royal Ass Kicking!

We recently had elections for president of the COR Dana, my opponent, defeated my by a vote of 33-12. Being a gracious loser, I harbor no ill will to her, and will support her to the fullest, because she's already a good friend to me!

A Total Idiot!

There is a guy that goes around the Christian chatrooms I frequent that goes by the screen name of Lukespacewalker. This guy is some piece of work. He is totally insane. Luke has said that people get sick because they don't tithe. The piece of crap told a lady that used to come into the room that was dying of cancer that if she tithed, she would get better. She ended up dying. Luke also said that my Mom got hurt for the same reason, and that my medical problems happened because I went to the dr. But the things that really made me laugh my ass off were when he said that he played Frizbee with God, and he once told a lady that she was going to hell because her boobs were too small. Sheeesh!

Baseball is back!

I am sooo glad that tomorrow Night is Baseball's opening Night! With no Football, hockey, and Basketball isn't my kinda sport, It will be nice to have something to watch and listen to. I'm a big fan of the Baltimore Orioles, tolerant of the Red Sox, but totally despise the Yankees!
