    It's already been machine gunned by AL East opponents and self-inflicted Grandal-esque performance from Jade Graham.

    I hate the way movies paint you as an asshole if you take your job seriously.

    I'm watching the Butterfly Effect 2. It's a crap movie, which is what I expect from a direct to DVD sequel with nobody from the 1st one. I only have it because it's on the same disc as the first one.

    At any rate, naturally in the reality that the main character creates that gives him the promotion instead of the douchebag that fires him and his friend right before he lost his relationship, because if you take your job serious enough to get and maintain a promotion you become an asshole that can't maintain a relationship at home...and apparently an adulterer as well since he was sleeping with the boss's wife.

    I hate those stupid animated menus a lot of fast food places keep putting in.

    Why do I need to stand there and stare at someone cracking an egg or pouring a cup of coffee before I can see how much my Big Mac will cost?

    I dislike how sentimental/suppose name value and what not makes someone think they can ask so much for a used guitar when the lines they've been replaced with indicate they aren't in the elite $4000+ model they think they have.

    That and strings breaking when forget how to restring and tighten just a single turn of the tuner too much.

    So Iím at McDonalds today and decided to time this crap while I was waiting.

    There were four screens on the animated menu

    - one displaying special meal deals they have and prices.

    - a bunch of dipping sauces all over the screen and a hand comes in with a chicken nugget and dips it in one

    - a peppermint mocha late being poured

    - I forget the other but it basically amounted to a close up shot of some food item.

    Each slide took 15 seconds for a one minute cycle.

    So thatís basically a 15 second window every minute where you actually have useful information to read on the menu.

    Fucking nerds. That reminds me of my favorite Jurgen Klinsmann story that came out after his hire as USMNT head coach was criticized.

    Bayern president Uli Hoeness told the Donaukurier newspaper that the club "bought computers for thousands of (dollars)" because Klinsmann used powerpoint presentations to explain game plans to the players.

    Bayern's current coach, Jupp Heynckes, needs five color markers and a flip chart to do the same, Hoeness said.

    "With Heynckes, we win games for ($17.26), while we spent a lot of money under Klinsmann and had little success," Hoeness said.
