The Karl Show
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE
to see an amazing new project underway in the United Arab Emirates. They are literally building a brand new city on the ocean floor. This might be the first step towards more terraforming here on Earth. It would really help places like Japan, for example, where space is at a premium.
On the other hand, some might say that The Emir and his buddies have more money than sense. That could be the case as well.
DONT ASK, DONT TELL
Where have I been for the past couple weeks? Don't ask. I'll tell you.
I've been everywhere
and doing everything
except updating my blog, as you can see.
Meanwhile, to compound my blogging problems, a few days ago my computer broke and is currently in hibernation. I'm only allowed on the "family" computer under strict supervision - so naturally I havent had any time to do much of anything.
Right now I'm looking online for various job postings. I need some kind of work by Sept. 10th if I'm going to continue to drive my car- (9/10 being when my next insurance payment is due).
I'm also getting ready for school which is Coming Back With a Vengence on Sept. 2nd. Sadly, I didnt complete all of my classes last semester, so the "run up" to Fall is going to be interesting. I'm not completely sure that the Bank will loan me the money to go to school, and that would be a disaster
Assuming that I am able to take classes in the Fall, I'll be learning the following brain fodder:
Survey of Ancient Art
Introduction to Computers
(the class that I didnt pass last semester)
Problems in US History
If I pass all my classes this semester (and I darned well better!), then I will be just about halfway done with my GE. I'll also be completely done with my Human Behavior/Politics/History requirement. Amazing! And you thought I was a slacker! And you're right!
Well, thats it for now, I guess. Pray for me as I continue Life's Many Splend'red Struggles.
Until next time, End Transmission.
Guess what, folks? I have a passing indirect mention in a Modesto Bee article!!! Stop the presses!
Start them again! Plaster this thing all over town!!!!
Ha ha, but seriously folks, the article
is really about how churches here in the valley use computers and the internet as apart of their daily life. It's pretty interesting, not just because my two pastors get Front-Row-Center treatment.
Hey, that sounds like a good name for a sitcom. My Two Pastors.
Anyway, sorry for not posting in a while. I've been busy hanging out with Kirk and doing nothing in general. I'll think of more stuff to add soon.
NEW ADVENTURES IN CHRICHTON LAND
I spent the whole day - my whole fourth of July - reading Rising Sun
by Michael Chrichton. I finished it in about five hours or so.
It's a great book, full of murder, suspense and International Intrigue. It's a little "dated" now, because the Japanese arent really trying to take over America anymore (not that we know of, anyway), but it's still a fast-paced and engrossing read. I reccomend it to everybody, except little kids. Rated "R" for murder and perverted Japanese businessmen.
