OOH CRAP, the rant I wrote about fido being broken

This weekend, me and three other co-workers made a plan to drive off to Sandusky, Ohio and visit Cedar Point. An amusment park with plenty of roller coasters. Here are some highlights from the trip, along with my top three rides.

  1. City : Sandusky, Ohio – Smelly, ugly, and very gay. At night the smell of pollution filled our noses. They were some really weird pollen flying around everywhere, it looked like cotton candy. Or maybe the clouds had fallen out of the skies becuase of that digusting smell. In the entertainment side, head on downtown to hit a gay club and then you can visit a transvesite club if you wish. Retail wise however there are lots of plazas in the area including stores as Best Buy, Macy’s, Target and other sports/clothing stores.
  2. The Hotel : Our days Inn smell almost as bad as the city smelled outside. The staff did not bother to clean our room after the first night, and most likely still has not cleaned it. There was a pool that was also poisoned with that same infectious cotton like pollen. There was supposed to be breakfast there, but the first day I went the lady was throwing out what little remained there. I did have orange juice both times. The beds were pretty small, and it doesn’t help when all my co-workers snore like bears. Thank God for my MP3 player which helped drown out the noise. The hallways of the inn looked like a dorm room from a small city college.
  3. The Park :
    • The Bad :
    • I didn’t like the overall design. It was far from breathtaking.
    • There was no organization in the park at all in terms of signage anywhere.
    • No separating themes giving the park an organized structure, it seemed chaotic at best.
    • Flying Pollen, in our mouths while yelling on roller coasters near trees. There was honestly too much of that crap everywhere.
    • Old Mascot (Snoopy). Not really any dedicated section for kids.
    • Mist Spraying fans… that don’t work.
    • The Good :
    • Maverick, Top Thrill Dragster, Millenium Force, The Wicked Twister, Raptor, Demon Drop, and even Snake River Falls.
    • ICEE : That slush was addictive.
    • Lots of Parking and multiple entrances.
    • Staff from around the world. It was kinda cool how the staff was literally imported from different sections of the world. Interesting summer job for them.
    • Short Lines compared to Wonderland. Wicked Twister barely even had a lineup.
    • Short delays on most rides.
    • Yummy Soft Cookie.

So, I frequent this website a lot. G4 Tech TV’s the Feed, mostly to pass time at work and learn about new games and such. Well I was on the website yesterday and they posted an image from a video game called Fallout 3.

So the same website today informed me that this image made headline news on another website called This is London, but they weren’t reporting this as an image from a video game. They said that the image was from in Islamic extremist forum claiming that this is what America will look like after an attack.

A video game image is becoming fear invoking propaganda… what’s even more interesting is the comments from both sites. Some people say that Islam needs to be banned from “the West.” Now, because I’ve written a few papers on this this topic I found some ppl’s comments interesting.

The West will only stop Al Qaeda and radical Islam from achieving this aim when Islam is no longer permitted in the West. For too long, politicians around the world have been chanting the mantra that Islam is a religion of peace. It isn’t so lets stop pretending and start doing something about reducing its influence and spread.

Oh boy, this terrorism thing is really giving Islam a bad name, arrhg now my brain is not working after reading such comments from such stupid people. Really, do i need to go over this again…

I’ll just redirect you to a previous venting post




My brand new Sharp Aquos!


…are the words that escape my mouth when I see the quality of video on my new 46″ LCD HDTV. Here is the thing, I HAD/Have a rear projection HDTV playing at (1080i) which is pretty high, but ever since the HDMI port stopped working and because it just isn’t the same thing, (it’s rather old) the quality difference between the 52″ rear projection and the LCD is ASTONISHING to say the least.

Here is how I would describe it… it’s like some one took out my eyeballs and then washed them with a special solution and then tweaked the focus to make sure I can see everything clearly. LIKE NEW EYEBALLS.

So I got a good deal so I jumped on it. So far I hooked it up upstairs to please my mom for a few days, but once i get about four strong enough friends to come help me move my monstrosity 52″ upstairs that beauty Sharp is going down in my basement where I will game in HD all day long!

Coincidentally my uncle purchased a new 46″ Samsung LCD HDTV (also a thing of beauty) and when he brought it home he was shocked at the horrible picture quality (not the same as in store, my tv looks better than the store cuz they were playing some nasty low def shit on it) of his low def satellite dish, ha ha ha, I told him.. you NEED an HD SOURCE to get the same quality picture, then i suggested the PS3 ha ha ha.

I was getting a lot of spam so I left this comment on that post :

OK SPAMMERS.. why are u so obssessed with this posting?? I’m not gonna ever approve all your spamming so please stop, its getting annoying marking you as spam… plus what is so special about this specific post??
I dont know?


When I e-mailed the lady at UTM for the graduation ceremony photos she got a quote from me and now I found out its public.

40th anniversary celebrations start with a bang (June 07, 2007)

“I was deeply proud to help celebrate this day that reflected our history, growth and our vibrant and cohesive community,” said Vice-President and Principal Ian Orchard, who led the academic procession. “This type of procession has not taken place on campus since the 1970s.” It was a special experience for the students. “The walk to the gym left me feeling proud,” said 2007 graduand Rizwan Choudhary.

I found my old e-mail that I talked to the lady about, here is what it says.

Yes you may. In fact I would like to add that it is not just the procession that made me feel proud. The diversity of the campus has always made me feel welcome. Being a Muslim student and having halal food available is just a small reflection of the diversity that I have become familiar with at UTM. Sharing stories and experiences with friends of different locations, languages, and cultures is what makes our campus so unique.

Now when I reflect on this comment, and I am still sitting jobless and I wonder what skills I have acquired from my University I feel a bit baffled, as all the web design stuff we learned is obsolete but at least I experienced four.. err five years of hell :).
