About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

First Pet Peeve of the Year


POWER POINT PRESENTATIONS

Man, I hate those things! Does any power point presenter EVER NOT just read the damn thing? I will walk out on a power point every time. I don't care if the President of the United States (if we ever get one) is the presenter.

Just hand me the thing. I can read it faster than you can anyway.

you are spot on! this guy gets a kick out of making jabs at unsuspecting students and creating high emotions, while standing back and acting seemingly innocent. He loves the power...a short man, kind of like a 'little napolean'.
(I accidentally deleted this comment earlier so decided to put it back in).
Also, I am loving your booklists. You have got to be a speed-reader. How do you do it? I currently have 3 books going...I know, short attention span...need to explore new subjects frequently! But, it'll take me about 3 to 4 weeks just to finish 1book at the rate I plug along. I need to get my sorry ass to a speed-reading class. Any suggestions??
