Quality

I just can’t seem to fix this computer. I did some e-search and found an orgy of other people with the same problem and had to replace the computer because there is no fixing it. In the last 13 months, this is 4/4 HP’s that have crapped out on me. I’m convinced they are most unreliable company on earth. In other news I just got a job solely selling HP products in Best Buy. I love the job, but I feel bad for the poor saps who actually take my advice and buy the crap. The 2 back to back HP desktops that crapped out were 1,500 a piece. The two together lasted about three years; if that same 3k were spent on a mac pro, I bet my balls (both of them) that it would still be running like a fucking champ. I could find loads of people who despise Apple, but I’d have a hard time finding someone who could dispute that.

I like Apple. I’m actually really surprised by the number of people who flat out hate them, and even hate me for liking them. The people who do hate them usually know nothing about them; they can’t afford it and they envy the people who can. The people with “Apple fanboy” in their vocabulary are usually dorks (NOT nerds) who think they know it all because they upgraded the ram in their 7 year old e-machines. It’s a sad truth.

I have yet to hear someone say that a Ferrari sucks because it’s expensive. It’s illogical to think something is inferior because it costs more. I could actually argue that a mac isn’t any more expensive than any other computer. They retain their value more than any other computer, so when it’s time to upgrade you don’t have to toss it in the garbage. My first laptop was a macbook that I bought for $1100 dollars. After two years, I sold it for $800 and I upgraded to a $1000 Gateway. That gateway was sent in for repairs twice during the first year, and the repairs only lasted about 3 months.  Essentially, the macbook cost me 300$, and the Gateway cost me $1,000. I bet a majority of people who made the switch to Apple have a similar story.

Despite how all this sounds, this is not about Apple vs HP. It’s about quality. I’m not upset that my HP’s aren’t macs, I’m upset they aren’t working right now. The only other company that builds their computers with quality is Lenovo. My school is actually forcing a Lenovo into my hands, but I’m embracing it because it’s top notch quality. I’m actually excited to get my hands on it. Lenovo offers a three year warranty out of the box on most of their computers, some with on site repairs. The extra two years doesn’t even make a difference to Lenovo or Apple because less people have problem with their machines after three years than a Toshiba in one. Apple is just slick enough to get people to pay the extra 250 for it.

I wish this job had Apple or Lenovo behind it, I would sell the shit out of either of those companies. Not because they are easier to sell, but  because I trust what I’m selling and would actually take it home myself. The low prices and equally low quality helps HP sell two laptops every second of every day of every year. They need me to sell their products because they certainly don’t sell themselves, and if I don’t intervene and say “hey, don’t spend 400 dollars less on this subpar machine”  no one would buy the damn things.

I guess my point is if  you don’t like fillet mignon, that doesn’t mean you have to eat fast food. If your debating two computers, don’t let the price be the deciding factor because odds are you won’t be saving anything by going with the cheaper one.


February

It’s really stupid how people are waiting for March 1st to do shit. If your gonna do something, do it now. Don’t wait until a tuesday just to look neat. It’s not cooler to do shit on the 1st, except for I guess January. Then again, I don’t blame them for not wanting to do it in February. February sucks on pretty much every level a month could suck. All my shit cost the same even though I’m not getting like 3 days of service.  Then again, I don’t use half the shit I own anyway. If you divide the 365 days in a year by the number of days in February, it comes to about 13. It’s as much of a month as an imaginary 13th month.. It’s the midget of months, which bothers me consider I got kicked out of psychology class in high school because of “excessive racism” stemming from a remark I made about midgets. I tried asking how they could possibly consider the lack of height a race only to be called a smartass. I don’t know if it makes me smart to not relate the two, but it certainly does make you stupid if you don’t.

I heard these two black kids complaining about how black history month was during the shittiest month of the year. That really bothers me- It’s could have easily been “black history day”, not that there should be any allotted time devoted to it. Black history should be about equality; what sense is it make to separate history? History is history. Regardless of the topic, who wants to learn history for an entire month anyway? But I agree, it is during the shittiest month of the year. And it’s not racist to say “black kids”, if your thinking that, shut up your brain.

I found that I’ve been smoking a lot. No, not weed… crack. I’ve been smoking crack cocaine profusely. It has actually become a big problem. At first it was a cheap thrill, but it’s evolved since then. The other day, I was craving a hit but couldn’t get it because my mom didn’t have any money in her purse. I always thought I could stop at any time, but after that incident I realized that’s not the case. To make sure that would never happen again, I stole all her jewelry and pawned it. With that money, I bought a good amount and now I sell it and use the money I make to fund my addiction. Cigarettes you fool! Why is it whenever I say “smoking” people always think I’m talking about weed? Or crack? Maybe it’s the way I look. Well, fuck you for judging me. I’ve been smoking a lot of CIGARETTES recently, and I think it’s because I’m stressed out. I, like most smokers, smoke when I’m stressed out. I read somewhere that when you smoke, you hike up your blood pressure, increasing stress. Full circle. What a bunch of schemers these tobacco companies are. I wish I had thought of it, I’d be rich as fuck by now.

It’s actually very important that I become very rich, very soon. I can only go so long posting to my website at 7:00AM before I crap the fuck out. I just got a job and it’s only a matter of time before I get fired. This sleep disorder prevents me from being a hard working American (among other things). So, I’ve been thinking- who works the least in this country? Rich people! So, I have very little time before I have to become rich to sustain the high standard of life I’ve grown accustom to. I’ve been playing the lottery almost every day; no dice. I went to the store to buy the tickets with my girlfriend and she pointed out that the jackpot was a lowly 5 million dollars. So, my dumb ass says “better for me, the odds will be in my favor”. She called me out on my stupid and pointed out how the odds are the same of me winning, just better in the sense that I won’t have to share it if someone else wins too. I looked it up, the odds of wining the mega million jackpot is 1 in 175,711,536. Fuck that! If everyone in this country played, that would be two people. I’m not that lucky. Actually, now that I think about it, I’m extremely unlucky. Like when people tell me to pick a hand, I always pick the empty one. I’d be fucking nuts to waste my money on that bullshit again. Looks like I’m back to the drawing board. Maybe I can collect disability, or at least get a handicapped plate on my car.


What am I to do Windows?

Gotta love the choices


WordPress and Neutron Stars

I hate how this website says “Howdy, [username]”. I know cowboys are supposed to be cool, and maybe a billion years ago they were but in 2011 they come off as a bit gay to me. Not to say you can’t be cool if your gay, but the fact that it’s a computer tells me it’s not gay, and it’s trying to be something it’s not which is not cool.  I hate when “they” try to give computers personalities. I’ve only met a handful of people who actually have decent personalities; we don’t need any more sucky things with personalities.

Okay, onto what I want to talk about. Science. I still hear people say “I can’t believe Pluto isn’t a planet anymore”. I’ve never given enough of a shit about Pluto to care whether it was a planet or a fruit, but it got me thinking: why isn’t it a planet anymore? Well, I looked into it. Technically, it’s a plutoid, which sounds too stupid to be true and it almost is. A plutoid is a trans neptunian object,  which is a minor planet in our solar system that orbits the sun and that is further than Neptune. Well, it turns out theres a bunch of these objects. They found another one they called Eris, which is bigger and more massive than Pluto. Get this- at first they called it the 10th planet. Than, all of a sudden, it’s not a planet and neither is pluto.  Just like that, everything we know changes.

It’s actually quite funny, all the crap we can’t physically see is pretty much a wild guess. The more technical shit gets, the higher the probability it’s complete bullshit. We can see a body, and we can see organs, so the science behind that is pretty solid. Using a microscope, we can see cells and shit so we know a good amount about them too. It’s when you go smaller that the shit becomes harder to pick out from the ice cream- the atom. We don’t know balls about the atom.  We can’t see inside of it, thus we don’t know what the fuck is inside of it. What we did do is bitch slap an atom with another one moving at pretty much the speed of light (in a particle accelerator, like the large hadron collider) and watched it explode. If it exploded, it must be built of smaller bits of shit. So, we called the smaller shits quarks and that’s that. That type of guesswork make facts about other shit like “Neutrinos are trillions of times smaller than atoms” that much harder for me to believe. How can you look somebody in the face and tell them there is something that exists that is a TRILLION times smaller than something else we don’t fucking understand yet?

“if you took the entire empire state building and compressed it into a grain of salt, it wouldn’t even be half the mass of a grain of a neutron star. If you dropped this grain onto the Earth, it would cut right through the entire planet like a knife through butter”. Heavy. My point is- how the fuck do we know this? We can’t see it, and like I said anything we can’t see is up in the air. I looked it up, the closest neutron star is anywhere between 250 and 1000 lightyears away. If we can’t even locate it without a 750 lightyear range of error, how could we possibly know how massive it is? By the way, 750 lightyears is 4,408,969,029,887,706 miles, or roughly 4 quadrillion miles. Maybe the mass is 4 quadrillion times less and the grain would float in my bathtub.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised considering these are all theories. Than again, the whole concept of a cell is a theory. I’m discontent with the fact that the cell is a theory in the same sense in which there is an unseen 9th planet (obviously not including dumb ass plutoids) three times bigger than Jupiter called Tyre that is riding the edge of our solar system. Fuck theories. And fuck Plutoids.


Worthess?

Well, I’ve moved from blogger to this site. For you die hard fans, you may have noticed the url is now spelled properly. For the shoebies- when I made the blogger account I originally keyed in the wrong letters, spelling it “worthess”. Heres the old post so you can get up to speed (aka dead stop).

WorthlessthanWORTHLESS was not taken. I’m just a cockazoid that is so obsessed with screen resolutions that everything is so fucking small I can’t even see what I’m typing anymore. I refuse to change it, and not because I can’t but because fuck you. Okay, so this is a “blog” but I won’t call it a blog because the word blog reminds me of the word booger and I hate boogers. Not just the sight of a booger, but the thought that I have a booger inside of me bothers me to a degree slightly below who gives a shit. Instead, I’ll call it a website. Makes me sound professional and it makes you sound like my customer. Which gets me thinking- if you give me a dollar and I can get a million people to see this I’ll be a millionaire. Actually, I have a good 9 bucks laying around, so all I need is 999,991 people to give me a dollar. I willn’t (word I just made up) proofread my entry because I don’t like to read- not even if I wrote it. I’ll stop now because I want to.
