Today just dragged by at work today, even more so than usual. I was so lethargic that I was almost falling asleep at my desk and whilst I joke about being able to my job in my sleep, I know the truth is somewhat different - But only because I don’t talk in my sleep.
It got to the point where I was standing up and walking around tethered by my headset to a desk, like an animal in a zoo. Whilst I might have been as bored as an animal in a cage, I wasn’t able to spend my time sleeping and frustrating people trying to take my picture.
During my breaks, as caffeine is denied me due to my dislike of coffee I was using all the tricks I knew to try and keep myself awake and energised; fresh air, sugar and music.
So firing up the music it was a case of set it up to random and skip it if it was too slow - Here’s the best of what I didn’t skip.
Criminals are obviously not that smart, or rather the ones we know about aren’t that smart as they’ve been caught.
Every once in a while though I read news stories that maybe I could try my hand at a life of crime, after all I know I could do a better job than some so called criminals out there, I at least would think things through first before committing my crime. I admit that if I sat down to think things through it would probably strike me what a stupid idea a life of crime really is.
FORT MADISON, Iowa - An Illinois man who police say held five people hostage in a motel in Fort Madison, Iowa, was arrested after he sent two of his hostages on a beer run.
Police say 33-year-old Jason Slagel of Moline is charged with five counts of false imprisonment and going armed with intent. They say Slagel pulled a knife during an argument Tuesday night with another man and told the people in the room that they wouldn’t be allowed to leave.
One man was cut and Slagel had a cut on his hand, but police say the injuries weren’t serious.
Police say Slagel eventually got thirsty and sent two hostages out for beer.
After they left, they called police and Slagel was arrested without incident.
The only smart thing this goon did from the sounds of things was giving up peacefully.
Over the years there have been many religious disagreements, such as the creation of the Church of England, so the Henry VIII could get rid of wives legally without having to behead them. The Crusades are another example of a major religious disagreement and I am sure you can think of many more.
However as with all things in life, most disagreements tend to be petty and result in squabbling rather than wars. Such as this fictional disagreement between Our Lady of Martyrs Catholic Church and the Beulah Cumberland Presbyterian Church:
If only they would concentrate on the common ground and not focus on the differences.
Pic found whilst playing around on Pixdaus and yes I know the pic is old, but that doesn’t stop it being funny.
I’ve spent most of today trying to decide who i’d rather be stuck in an elevator with, Jade Goody or Hitler. Hitler, probably, as i suppose he could teach me German whereas i’m not sure i could learn much from Jade Goody.
Now I’ll admit I can already speak German to a reasonable level, but I’d still choose the lift with Hitler in.
