The NEW Daily Pessimist

4 05 2009

Hey guys, its been a while since I last updated…actually almost a year to be exact. I kinda got bored with the whole blogging thing. But then last night i decided to read my old posts and found myself laughing, so I decided I should try this one more time. My next few posts will be about Obama’s first 100 days. Feel free to comment but make sure you keep it clean. I don’t care if you agree or disagree but everyone deserves respect.

Halloween Came Early…Bigfoot is Big-Faux

19 08 2008

Well well well….turns out that the Bigfoot the two men in Georgia found is nothing more than a $450 costume…like I’m in a way speechless not because I’m  surprised it was fake but more of the fact that it took this long to figure it out. they were probably debating more about which store the actual costume came from before they released information, or better yet what type of plastic. Like it’s pretty sad that these guys would go through all this work for a hoax, though it was a good one, its a waste of time. Besides promoting their website, they haven’t accomplished much, and seeing as how its a hoax I doubt people will go to their website. People like them in my opinion are like bratty children. They look for attention and make a fuss about stuff, and while in the end they get what they want it always isn’t what they wanted. I’ll post a few links down below to sites that covered this news, now time to get back to my vacation…can’t believe I took time out of it to cover these fakers…now not only can’t we trust Canadians but Georgian Hunters too…I personally didn’t trust them to begin with so…

Michael Phelps Wins his 8th Gold Medal!!!

17 08 2008

Holy cracker jacks. I just witnessed history! Michael Phelps has just broken the record and won his 8th gold medal. Seriously, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. I know nothing about swimming or much about sports but oh my god that was truly amazing. The man is like a dolphin or something! Are they sure he doesn’t have webbed feet??? I along with probably most of the world are in disbelief. His face when he saw he won was priceless as I’m sure mine would if I had just accomplished such a feat. His single mother, was seen in the crowd with shock and disbelief as well. I tip my hat off to you Michael as does the rest of the world. You deserve it. Now what happens when people tell you to go for the gold? You can simply tell them you already did (^_^) Michael Phelps you are officially on my “List of People to Meet in my Life”. God Bless you and congrats!

Now for the numbers:

The U.S. team won in a world record 3:29.34.The U.S. team

Hayden Stoeckel, Brenton Rickard, Andrew Lauterstein and Eamon Sullivan took Australia to the silver in 3:30.04

The Japanese team — Junichi Miyashita, Kosuke Kitajima, Takuro Fujii and Hisayoshi Sato — won the bronze.

(scores brought to you by this website here)

***UPDATE***

Ugh…all the videos on Youtube of Michael Phelps winning have been taken down…I hate to sound like a commercial but head on over to NBC Olympics and you can see Phelps winning his 8th gold medal. heres a link

Going for the gold? Psh been there done that!

Going for the gold? Psh been there, done that!





Scraper blogs…ugh…

17 08 2008

Ok, so I, like so many other blogs out there have officially become a victim. Another blog has taken work from my blog and simply didn’t give me credit (and you know who you are). I sent them a comment, seeing as how they had no e-mail address. Wow, that’s not sketchy…I would advise all bloggers who are new to copyright your work in someway. I’m trying to do that but it seems my options are limited. I want to put something on my footer that’s “Copyrighted 2008” or something like that but I’m not sure how to. If you know how to please let me know.

This post and all posts previous and even the ones to come are copyrighted by the Daily Pessimist. Though some images I may borrow from sites, I do not take credit for them as my own.

Ok, so that won’t cut it but hey, it’s a start.





Guns allowed in School!? Only in Texas…

16 08 2008

A law in Texas now allows teachers and faculty to carry concealed weapons in a Harrold Independent School District in Texas. The reason for this is because the nearest police station is about 30 minutes away from the school. They feel this will allow staff to hold off any potential gun men, such as other staff members carrying concealed weapons until the police arrive. Ya sure that makes a whole lot of sense. Don’t let that one psycho student who plans on going on a rampage have to go through the trouble of buying a gun, when you can simply give him an open opportunity to grab it. Even though they are “concealed” it’s a school. Word gets around. See the fact that they are allowing guns into the school simply puts everyone at greater risk. What if the teacher is the psycho? At least if no guns were allowed in the school, they wouldn’t be putting their students at a higher risk. I thought schools were supposed to be safe, but apparently these people feel that the price of safety comes with a loaded gun. Even if the teachers are trained and licensed to use/ carry a concealed weapon, which is the only way they are allowed to bring it to school, its still very risky…but then again its Texas, and Like Vegas what happens there stays there only with a law like this we pray it stays there…

***UPDATE***

Heres an interview with the superintendent that came up with the idea to allow guns in his school district. I’m sorry but the guy is a bit of a pompous fool. Notice how in the beginning of the interview when he’s being introduced he makes a weird face. Also he talks about how police and security guards aren’t “Educational Friendly”…neither are guns…

Wow...not the brightest choice the school made I can tell you that...

Too many people die from guns as is, why bring them into everyday life more than they need to be?





Which Super Smash Bros Brawl Character Are You Most like: Politician Edition!

16 08 2008

Well, well, well number five in out series of brawl look-a-likes. I seriously didn’t expect to get this far. For number five, we feel it’s Mike Huckabee’s turn. Though Huckabee bears no real physical resemblance or similarities with the Pokemon Trainer, there is one big thing they have in common; the devotion of their followers. By followers I don’t mean voters or supporters. I’ll give you a simple analogy to show what I mean

Squirtle, Ivysaure, and Charzard are to Pokemon Trainer as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Conan O’Brien are to Mike Hucabee. I mean seriously, if you watched The Daily Show, Colbert Report, or Conan O’Brien you would have noticed that they were “devoted” to Hucabee. They even had fights over who “created” him. I think it was a Jon Stewart Stephen Colbert combination (^_^)

I Choose You! Jon Stewart!
