Post title: self pity sucks

My life is AWESOME*!!!

I get at least 4 solid job-possibility emails a week - all in DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia.... Meanwhile, I have spent 1/2 of my daughter's life away from home... All I want is a respectable Remedy Dev job working on custom code in Oregon or SW Washington... Is that too much to ask? I make amazing awesome shit, but no one in the PNW is hiring. Unemployment + living with your parents is AWESOME*!!!

* and by awesome, I mean this shit sucks...

You have failed me for the last time Pandora...

Justin Timberlake? Really? Again? I've already thumbs downed 3 or 4 songs by him, you think you'd get the hint... And Enya? For fucks sake, how is it even possible to have a Pandora station that plays both Justin Timberlake and Enya?

Just exactly what sort of Faustian deal did you make with the record labels? Are you secretly pimping for them by clandestinely slipping newly released shit into my music?

You have failed me for the last time Pandora.

Oh shit, who'm I kidding? Just like Megatron and Starscream I'll have let you back into my inner circle by next weeks episode so that you can betray me again.

I hate you Pandora -

Ok - I'm no terrorist, but Jesus...

I know nothing about explosives except what I learned by growing up as a male in the 80s and 90s in the united states and even I could have done a better job than that dumb motherfucker in New York... I mean - gasoline and firecrackers? shit.... I don't want to give any instructions or spoilers or anything, but have you ever heard of a pipe bomb? (There's this thing called the internet - it can give you some details....) Is there someone stupider? I think that's the greatest weakness of the latest batch of "terrorists." They are all stupid. Chronically stupid. Debilitatingly stupid. If we ever had someone with half a brain wanting to damage the united states, we'd be in trouble.

This all brings me back to one of my (least) favorite topics: the TSA (douchebags.)

I'm not going to talk about the time that they cut off my TSA approved locks instead of using their TSA master key to just unlock them or the time they used a screwdriver to pry open (and break) the case to a "tool-less" external hard drive enclosure... Instead - recent events have confirmed my conclusion that these low-paid, un-vetted non-technical gorillas are doing nothing to keep us "safe" and secure. Further - it seems to me that our government cares much more about making it appear as if they are making us safe then they do about actually making us safe.

It's like our "war on drugs"... Fighting the war on drugs is much more important than putting an end to drug crime. The western world has plenty of examples on how to reduce crime and reduce drug related crime, but we turn a blind eye because we think it's a public relations "win" to keep fighting the "war on drugs." I'm disgusted...

Ok - sorry. Rant over.
