Opportunity Man

Teddy's idea was that the whole thing would take three guns at the most. Me, him, and Rachel. The cashier would go down first, that would be my job, his was to get to the safe in the back. Rachel would stand guard because a woman standing out there wouldn't draw as much attention. Teddy was the idea man. The problem is that real life doesn't have idea men, it has only opportunists. , I'm an opportunist. My name is Jake and I'm the Opportunity Man. He tripped and fell on the plush green carpet as the old woman lay there dying, bleeding into her sweater. Suddenly, Idea Man had lost his gun and the stack of bills. Suddenly, I was the only man in the room with a gun, and the only person in the world who would want to defend him had her back to me and was on the other side of a glass door.

Like I said, I'm an opportunist.

Epoxy403 - Interracial Relationships

Epoxy403 - Interracial Relationships: "Part of the reason that people like personals-sites is that every single human being is a voyeur. We all want to assess without being assessed, that's why people put up fake pictures. It's the safety of not being judged. "

By Mr Stallone, no less.

Free New Blogger Templates

I was trying for an abstract feel. Getting bored with that so the next set will be something new. I have a bunch of blogs out there, but not enough to use up the templates I make. Note that if you're going to do anything major in the way of tweaking you will probably need to be able to handle CSS at least a little bit.

Notes from the Short Bus

The two most significant relationships in my life started out as long-distance friendships, so I've gotten into the habit of looking at dating personal sites, only now for amusement more than anything else. They are so many of them, and so many tacky, delusional people, who, of course, never ever know just how tacky and delusional they are, to crack me up. My favorite these days is this one right here. It's like, only totally free so you can email these people all you want, should you want to. As a result of being free it's got more trailer trash than I imagined existed in real life. It's almost like a parody site, some of the listings simply cannot be real, like the ones below, but they are funny. I'll bet they get 80% of their hits from Webtv.

"i am opinionated so if women with a mind bothers you, sorry." Comedy GOLD!

"also, if you live in another country, whose name i cannot pronounce, or an american is your only way out dont write me and tell me you love me when you dont know me."

Ok, my idea of what looks good differs from most people's. At some point it may coincide with other people's tastes, maybe I don't know. This free template was written with CSS and html. At the veryleast, I can tell you that it doesn't look like anybody else's template. There will be more of them though, so check back.

American Renaissance News: Low Riders Beware

American Renaissance News: Low Riders Beware
“If you want to show your underwear in your private home, I don’t have any objections,” said Del. Algie T. Howell Jr., a Norfolk Democrat who has filed legislation that would levy a $50 fine on anyone who “exposes his below-waist undergarments in an offensive manner.”

So here is a new bill by some (possibly) out-of-touch old man who either a) thinks he's going to harrass minorities and delight the conservative voting base, or b) wants to look like he's harrassing minorities while mostly jsut harassing young white men, deceiving the rednecks while keeping touch with the minority vote. Of course, in VA, the former is more likely.
