Sometimes

Sometimes some of these things just push me past the boiling point.

Yes, the family has a 41 year-old graduate son still "living off" them. So what? And they are seeking professional counseling help to deal with the stress of their situation. Why the hell do you have so much crap to say about them over a newspaper article? For that matter, why is this even in the news?

I'm a 41 year-old Ph.D. graduate "living off" my folks. So ... yah ... thanks a lot! What of it now my "friend," you want to try to call me a dead-beat too?

Squares with Personal Experience

Rather than discussing anything here, I am just getting this post up to remember this other guy's blog entry. On the whole, it matches very well the problems I had faced as a graduate student and a professional working on developing code. In fact, it matches so well that I only find it mildly funny ... just thinking about these frustrations in the past makes me feel pretty depressed.

My Entertaining Fourth of July Video

LOL! A friend posted this on Facebook, and it cracked me up! I always enjoy watching CGP Grey's videos. I encourage interested readers to follow him.

One of my favorite moments in the clip - the Guano Islands Act.

Well, time to go see if I can get citizenship in Palau, Micronesia, or the Marshall Islands! hehehe
