It’s interesting… the careers we picked as kids are the same that are being shut down by “tough economic times”. Unfortunately, they are also the jobs we really need. But whatever… who needs science? Who needs space exploration? Who needs public servants like firefighters, medics, police officers, etc…
Who needs them when we can outsource, downsize, or streamline?
Besides good news, our unemployment rate is now only 7%! That means one out of 14ish people are unemployed. Chances are, you know someone who’s out of work right now or someone who has been struggling. Granted, it’s better than the 14% and up we had before, still… the problem with these stats is that they don’t take into account people who have had to go into work outside their field “just to have a job” or just given up on searching. Also, you’d think these stats came from the unemployment office… but alas, it’s just a general random calling campaign asking people. Excellent source of quality stats! Uhg… (meaning, actual figures are probably much higher)
Comeon, you have to admit… Kim Jong Un, supreme dictator of North Korea, is the cutest baby faced little ruler ever! Just want to pinch his cheeks! A shame we’ll probably have to nuke him first…
So once again, NK is going insane and provoking the world with nuclear weapons. Granted, their rocket technology is deplorable. Hell, I had more success with a homemade model rocket than 2 decades of their ICBM trials. Still, they’re bound to get lucky one of these days. Lucky in the sense that it’ll land them at the rotten end of the ugly stick when every nation in the world just gets fed up with their shenanigans.
Heck, even China, long time neutral backer of NK has started getting irritated…. probably cause all of this bombing nonsense will end up involving them as well. My hopes are that when all this goes down, South Korea as well as the US (we’re in a pact now) and our allies AND countries like China will group up for a raid. It really is about time we bury the hatchet with big red and do some joint missions. Our freakin’ economies are tied up enough, might as well as act like buddies.
Anywho, pictured above are Park Geun-hye of South Korea and Shinzō Abe of Japan. Both of which will be involved with this conflict.
In other news, NK decided to make a propaganda video about them nuking the US… That’s fine and all, but they used both a Disney soundtrack and video clips from Call of Duty games! I say, the next CoD game should be us fighting North Korea!!! XD Comeon, they keep having us go against poor Russia, why not fight a country that really deserves it?
Ain’t it the truth? When you work/school, there’s no time for games, but when you get sick and have to stay home… still no games! Or at least for me anyways. Man, when I’m out, I’m really out!
But fear not, I’m not under any weathers at the moment (knock on wood). I did run into this a few weeks back where I had to call out of work cause of evil cold viruses and basically slept for a few days. Ah well, at least there’s weekends for gaming! >)
So apparently it’s ok to bring your kids to a big ol scifi/comic convention with scantly clad women in cosplay but heaven forbid you have pinupy type posters for sale! Seriously folks, it seems like every time someone has to make a comment about this passing by my table. And in the grand scheme of things… my stuff is pretty darn tame. >)
Ah well, I had a great time anyways! Even did some commissions! My “hang in there boba” and steamboat posters were the best sellers this time around. Seems I’ve got some more to do for next time!
Anyways, thanks to everyone who came by to say howdy! <3
Never understood the whole “fresh air” thing. I mean, I live in Florida… there’s 4 seasons of spring. At no point in the year is there ever a lack of pollen or spores in the air. So the idea of “going outside” seems counter productive to me. >)
Maybe it’s just a FL thing, but I swear it’s the only place you can feel winded, get allergies, and be covered in a thing layer of humidity and air oil… just by going to your mailbox and back. Good times… Good times…
Hey folks, this is a bit of an oldie I dug up from my printed comics. Been in a bit of an exhausted slump this week so I apologize for it not being up to 2013 standards. >)
But… if you would like to see more tidbits like this, you can purchase a printed or digital copy of my Coffin Comics book in the Shop! Or stop on by my booth at Megacon in Orlando this March 15-17 and pick up a copy for like uber cheaps!
Eeyup! It’s finally here! The end! Tomorrow!
It was nice knowing everyone, but since the Mayans are the official authority on temporal continuity, we obviously are going to perish on the 21st. That or they just got lazy and didn’t get around to the next b’ak’tun. Or… they came up with the most epic troll of all time.
Seriously, look at the face in the center of the calendar. That’s Tonatiuh’s face, the sun god, sticking his tongue out at us. Problem?
(Small note, the calendar we usually say is the Mayan Doomsday one, above, is really the Aztec calendar. Pretty much the same though, but the Mayan was a bit more accurate… both end on the same day though… if I remembers correct.)
Looking at some of the past number of mass and major extinctions, seems he’s got a pretty bad track record.
4 more days, guys! Then kablooy! Or so they say… Like my earlier comics stated, the Mayan calendar runs out on December 21st, 2012, so naturally the world must be ending. This is “end of the world week”, so we’ll get into the whole Mayan thing again on Thursday.
But for now, let’s hear your favorite end of the world cause for 2012!
I can’t help but feel a bit awkward about this… It’s something that’s been drilled into us from the tv, that you have to cut up those little soda rings or else sea turtles and birds choke. But, what do we do with them afterwards? Toss them of course! And so they end up in a poisonous landfill anyways… or worse yet, just dumped out in sea (ok, I don’t think anyone intentionally does this, but trash barges have spillovers all the time). Good thing here in Tampa we just burn our trash for power. That’s… better… right?
I guess you could just recycle it, but ya know…
