evander holyfield is putting up something other than his Dukes

June3

Brian Patrick Cork so… I’m thinking that a guy that made his living by putting gloves on to get physical with other people might be able to put-on a condom. but, then I realize we are talking about a man that blew through $250MM, and needs help putting on those gloves.

Evander Holyfield Facing Jail Time Over Delinquent Child Support for… hinterlandgazette.com

BABY MAMA DRAMA:  Boxing legend Evander Holyfield could be thrown in jail for being delinquent on child support payments to the tune of $372,097.40, for daughter Emani Holyfield. The Georgia Department of Human Services isn’t playing around. They…

evidently Mr. Holyfield is not interested in Natural Selection – or, he has his own views on such matters. however, he is, himself, unfortunately a fairly good example of Darwin’s theories. he is a “poster boy” for what not to do.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Facebook and Divorce lawyers

June1

Brian Patrick Cork the article below ↓ is rather fair. it tells you what a mindless journalist thinks.

so… I suppose it’s fair – if you care about things that are pointless.

meanwhile, what it made ME think of is that investors should have known better than to buy the IPO stock. and, I did warn you, here: why other people should buy Facebook (stock).

Facebook is not about financial value, or societal value. part of this is because the Facebook platform is deeply valued by people like divorce lawyers because it’s a great way to find cheating spouses. it’s also great for HR managers that don’t really know how to recruit but want to find the pictures of you doing things you don’t really (after thinking about it) want people to see, so they have an excuse not to hire you.

purchasing Facebook stock at the IPO, and thereabouts, makes you a terrific example of Darwin’s theories around Natural Selection.

oh… and, Barack Obama probably appreciates the whole IPO thing – but mostly because it has drawn more attention away from his own shenanigans. but, you can argue that Obama’s presidency is a lot like Facebook’s IPO, right? a lot of promises, but everyone that wanted the change, and bought in the media-hype, feels like they got taken for a ride.

so… maybe it’s the media that is the truest villain with all of this. they fuel unrealistic expectations and overly tout things that create collateral damage, just like Facebook and…

Actually, Mark Zuckerberg Should Say NOTHING About The Facebook…finance.yahoo.comIn the past few days, as Facebook’s (FB) stock has continued to collapse, a growing chorus of people have been suggesting that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg needs to say something. Specifically, the grumblers say, he needs to…

long live the shockers says my broken heart

this post was updated on january 21, 2011 to include an additional music file at the bottom.

“ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END” – There is an end to everything, to good things as well. The proverb dates back to about 1374 (Chaucer). First attested in the United States around 1680. The word ‘good’ was added much later. ‘Everything has an end’ and ‘Everything comes to an end’ are variants of the proverb.

Also…

In the end, we are undone, perhaps in only our current form through treachery, deceit and selfishness – all qualities that are, ironically, so un-Shockers Nation-like.

As one of our parents so aptly pointed out… Perhaps they, my erstwhile hearty and ferocious Shockers, have become accustomed to the unique experience and take it for granted (this includes parents). Now, they must drink from another cup and make that their comparison.

Will Natural Selection always prevail?

Let’s listen to: No Ceiling by Eddie Vedder.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
