Bruno Mars, I Hate You

Have I ever mentioned that I hate Bruno Mars? I can't stand him and his godforsaken stupid hat. If I see him in that damn hat again, i'll just start calling him Micheal Moore. He makes be want to chop off my right ear and give it to a prostitute. I want to take my CDs, throw them at his neck Tron-style and beat his profusely bleeding body with my cowbell, as he desperately needs more cowbell. I hate you, Bruno Mars.

I hate how you dress yourself up in retro 50's attire, yet you insist upon singing modern day crappy music; your music is awful and makes me want to beat the people who enjoy your music into a bloody pulp, again with my cowbell. You wear a pompadour and sing with an awesome retro microphone, yet all you insist on imputing into said microphone is some of the worst crap I've ever heard.

You can't do anything to contribute to music either. Your songs only consist of three stupid chords repeated over and over and yet you act like your fucking Beethoven. At least the Jonas Brothers played their own instruments (what happened to them? Did they die? Good). You're just an older version of Justin Beiber who wears a fedora; a crappy one at that.

And you know what? I just might be able to stand your idiocy, if only you weren't such a god damn liar. The song Just The Way You Are? Lies all the god damn way; you act like your all deep and caring, but you don't really give a fuck, you chauvinist pig. For example, I reference the song Grenade: "I would catch a grenade for love." What a fucking liar you are. You're not going to catch crap. First off, if you were in a battle zone, i'd guarantee that you'd run the other way, hide in a hole somewhere and make out with a guy. Secondly, I highly doubt you have the ability to catch a ball, let alone an active grenade, coming your way. It seems that the only thing comparable to athletic prowess is the ability to shit out the worst music possible. Plus your shitty album is called Doo-Wops and Hooligans. While I do agree that you're a god damn animalistic hooligan, there isn't any fucking doo-wop on your album. Stop fucking lying.

Bruno Mars, I hate you more than babies, animals, the environment, the Miami Heat, hippies, and the Dallas Cowboys all blended together in a banana smoothie of hate. Plus, you're probably a fucking communist. That is all.

I hate you.

Ronald Reagan

This is what I wrote today for my discussion board post in American Government:

Ronald Reagan was the greatest president in the history of the United States.

One of the reasons why is because of the way he handled the economy of the United States. In 1980, when Ronald Reagan took office, inflation was at 12.4%. In the last year of the Reagan administration in 1988, inflation was down to 4.4% The US unemployment rate also diminished from 7.1% to 5.5% over the 8 years that Reagan was in office. He also lowered taxes for everyone in the US, not just the wealthy; he signed the Bipartisan Tax Act of 1981 which significantly lowered taxes.

Reagan also had to display military strength. He supported a plan called Peace though Strength, in which military spending increased by 40% during peace time specifically after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. He also had to handle with the Soviet Union and the Cold War. Reagan was distinctly anti-communist and his foreign policies reflected that. For example, his Strategic Defense Initiative severed as was way to scare the Soviets and ensure that they would not initially attack the United States.
Perhaps Reagan is best known for his latter attempts with the Soviet Union for diplomacy: most notably his challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall and reunify Germany.

Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of all time because he was able to aid the economy while lowering taxes for all and he was able to protect the United States from the threat of communism and the Soviet Union. Also, he was the first president to ever survive an assassination. That's pretty brutal. Don't stop being awesome, Ronald Reagan!

Ronald Reagan approves of this discussion board post.

A perspective of our place in the universe

I learned something pretty amazing in my astronomy textbook today.

Easily visible in our night sky now is the constellation Gemini. One of the brightest stars in that constellation is the star Pollux. Pollux is noted in the constellation map of Gemini above.

Now for the mind-blowing fact:
Pollux has a planet 3x the size of Jupiter orbiting it. That's a planet about 954x more massive than the earth!

As I look into that particular star, to imagine that orbiting it is a planet unfathomably large is an incredible thought. What else is out there? Is there anything out there who looks at our star from a distant planet and can't imagine that our solar system exists?

Makes you think...

I'm seriously considering changing my major to physics so I can be an astronomer.
