More Things That Bug Me

I feel like being angry today well right now. So I will list some ridiculous things so called intelligent adults have madeup.
  1. The Astronaut Farmer no I don't know if it's spelled right but I really don't care. This is probably the stupidest movie title. It does not in any way make me want to see this movie. Not to mention the fact that we are supposed to believe Billy Bob Thorton is a farmer. Sure he's got the name down but he just seems so unfarmerish to me. I digress, I mean they couldn't think of anything better? Why not borrow the name Harvest Moon at least that would have been more creative. I mean would any one have seen October Sky if it was called Rocket Scientist Coal Miner? or Field of Dreams if it was Baseball Playing Farmer? I really think not!
  2. Global Warming is it real? is it not real? That's not what bothers me. what bothers me is that it's called WARMING and we're supposedly being plunged into an ICE age. Last time I checked ICE was not WARM. I don't know Pluto is no longer a planet so I guess anything could happen. Which brings up my next point
  3. Pluto is "not" a planet what WHAT? What is that? Pluto is a planet end of story. How could it not be? I did a report on pluto Freshman year. And it was a most excellent report I must say. I did a really awesome job on it me and my two friends. It was really cool. All right back on track now If you really research the scientist reasoning for it not being a planet you'd be like "Wow that's how you classify a planet?! That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard!" Honestly if that's how they've always classified planets could they not tell pluto wasn't a planet before? Why did it take so long? Did they have to lie to us for so many years? So ridiculous.
  4. Standardized Tests HORACE MANN, CURSE YOU! What do these tests really show? That you are really great at taking tests under pressure?! Stupid stupid stupid. All these tests are either extremely easy(Standford 9) or ridculously hard (AP tests). Seriously, and you know what I really hated about the Standford 9, they always had that same example question on the reading portion. It was about this kid waiting for his brother to come and he was hoping his brother would get there before the storm came. But they never told you if he came!! No they just left you hanging like did he die in the storm? Does he get there safely? No you don't even know. Oh it drove me crazy and when I was younger I would worry about it ya I know weird but I was a pretty weird child. Curse you Horace Mann, Curse you!!

Well that's about it for now. There are other things but I want to play tennis and need to study for Calculus (I hate Isacc Newton) so I need to go. BYE

Have you even thought about jihad? What about the political ramifications of global colding on who gets the Gaza strip? Why do you think its called Astronaut Farmer? They are making a statement that movies just aren't as good now as they were 30 and 40 years ago. Plots are gone, and good movie titles with it. Besides, Billy Bob played an astronaut before, so they needed to capitalize on the success of Armageddon in order to get more people to see the movie. Also, after the premier we are entering Puerto Rico and forcing them to become the 51st state in the Union so that they'll have to pay taxes like all the rest of us gosh dang it!
Furthermore, standardized tests were created so that there would never be anybody capable enough of taking over the world. In addition to this, the best way to measure a person's self worth, and testimony if they're LDS, is through a standardized test. The only way I knew I was better than other people in elementary school and junior high was by counting the number of PHS-es I had on my scores. Standardized tests really speed along the process of figuring out who is naturally inclined to fail in life anyway, without standardized tests I wouldn't be the person I am today. This is because labels simplify people. I got a 4 on the AP History test. Oh you got a 2? I am inherently better than you and therefore will be more successful and happy in life. Standardized tests are democracy's way. Horace Mann... Henry Clay incarnate? I say yes. Long live the American Dream, and the nation of Islam through a viewing of Astronaut Farmer.

Glad you know history lindsey! I got a 3 and it was only because Huffine was always like you don't need to know womens lib and that's what the DBQ was. Further more Billy Bob grosses me out he is creepy looking. I don't like movies with him in it. I don't even understand how you brought religion and standardized tests together. I don't think they have any correlation at all. So you are very wrong my dear. But I love you any ways.
WOW I just thought of another post I could do. And speaking of religion we are all the same you know Jesus loves us all. Read the last 2 verses in Romans 8. They are my fave when I'm feeling sad. BYE

I'm sorry, but Pluto has been demoted. Period. I wouldn't agree if Bill Nye didn't agree. How can you not agree with Bill Nye?

Bukran said...

Bill Nye is going to take over Puerto Rico with his burgeoning public support... He then will turn that island into the solar system's newest planet and our 51st state simultaneously. Who's owning the galaxy now, ya commies?

The astronaut farmer actually was a Soviet cosmonaut... Who knew that the collectivization of agriculture wasn't good for space exploration? Billy Bob Thorton never took a standardized test...that's why he's only in bad movies. Learn a lesson, kids...

Others say that Aaron Burr came back from the past to stop Bill Nye but that Henry Clay thwarted him and ended up living in the present in a shady Florida trailer park...

It's a mad, mad, mad world...

I like that movie it is definately awsome. Bill Nye also believes in evolution so what do you have to say to that!! And any ways Henry Clay is America's Great Compromiser and could peacefully get Puerto Rico to join the United States with his most awesome compromising skills. As for Aaron Burr, after shooting Hamilton below the belt (big argument if it was the groin or right hip)he skipped town probably to become a farmer and work his way to the moon to make his own colony of federlists there!!

Touché!

Here's to an anti-federalist free moon!
