Not Taking No for an Answer

I came across this reply to a rejection letter this past week. If I could take credit for it I would but I can’t so you know I can’t.

As is thou I will take it at face value and assume that it is legit and just found it’s way to the internet. It would be a shame for this not to be a real letter.

Herbert A. Millington
Chair – Search Committee

Dear Professor Millington,

Thank you for your letter of March 16. After careful consideration, I
regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me
an assistant professor position in your department.

This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually
large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field
of candidates, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.

Despite Whitson’s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in
rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at
this time. Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor
in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.

Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey was born in Huntington New York in 1970. As a result from her mixed background Mariah encountered racial discrimination while growing up. Mariah came from a poverty stricken home and her mom was forced to work many jobs to make ends meet. It was also her mom who noticed her daughter had talent. School wasn’t overly important to Mariah she was more interested in writing music and dreaming about becoming a star. Before she became a star she worked as a hair sweeper in a salon, a coat check girl, and a waitress. In 87 Mariah spent hours working in a studio and creating demo tapes. A friend convinced Mariah to become a backup singer for Brenda K. Starr and it was at this time Tommy Mottola discovered how talented she really was. By 1993 Carey released 3 albums and in that year she married Tommy Mottola. The two were critisized due to their 20 year age difference. Once she gained more success Mariah donated her time and money for an organization aimed at helping inner-city youth who often didn’t get the chance to experience the arts. By 94 she had released two more albums and was continuing on the path to success. By 97 Mariah’s career was gaining momentum however her marriage to Tommy was starting to fizzle and the two divorced in 98. Mariah also dabbled in acting with a small role in the film Glitter, and The Bachelor. During the filming of Glitter Mariah suffered what her publicists called a physical and emotional breakdown and was hospitalized for a short period of time. Mariah was eventually payed by Virgin Records to walk away which added more insult to injury. After a few years off staying on the downlow Mariah released the Emancipation of Mimi. In 2008 she released her 11th album E=MC2 and much to everyones surprise she married Nick Cannon.

Crying for Help

This news is dated and no longer breaking news but in Ohio, on September 9, 2003 The Beacon Journal reported that a gentleman (I use that term loosely) reported that he was the victim of a rather unusual crime.

Apparently he was at home minding his own business (masturbating while watching porn) when another obviously disturbed gentleman broke into the basement apartment and forced the man to continue fondling himself while he held a gun on him AND a video camera.

The deranged criminal proceeded to then feed the victim’s dog magic mushrooms, ultimately killing the beast.

My questions regarding this are;

A. At what point do you not disclose everything to the police?

B. At what point do you not disclose anything to the police and retain some semblance of dignity?

C. The victims still was able to stay aroused during the ordeal?

D. Who is more disturbed, the victim or the perp?

E. At what point did the victim realize he was crying for help?

I think both cases are good examples of in the wild, why some animals eat their young.

Cal Ripken’s Real Baseball

For the month of April and May I have committed myself to writing for an online video game.

As it is I broke my thumb almost 4 months ago and it doesn’t bend very much yet, It just stays straight like some crazed terminal hitchhiker.

My days believing that if I just put out the effort I could have a long and illustrious career playing baseball.. Even if I get full or even most movement back I still have a plate and four screws holding it together.

I never actually played a day of organized baseball in my life. Circumstances didn’t allow it. The town I grew up in didn’t have baseball or football leagues.

Still though, I’m 28 and figured I could learn to throw a knuckle ball and pitch in the big leagues till I was 48. Lol. Craziness.

Either way, I just loved the sport. Baseball I like to say was my first love and I still believe that today. I want to be Tom Hanke on the hill for the Toronto Blue Jays in grade five, thick black glasses and all. Instead I had to settle for being a poor (wo) man’s Jenni Finch throwing grapefruit size bolders around and calling it fastball.

I never got to play baseball untill two years ago when I stumbled on a video game in open beta in what was then called Ultimate Baseball Online.

Online baseball?

Not only that but it is competitive online baseball.

The game is a massive multiplayer online role playing game. Role playing in the sense that you create a character, play as an individual member of a team in pickup games (PUGS) growing and levelling your character as you play and gain experience.

For me, this game was love at first sight. I like video games but this is what I play. Not CoD, not WoW, Not CS. Online baseball.

Like WoW and other multiplayer online games, players act as an individual member of a team. Characters are levelled as the user’s player gains EXP through pickup games (PUGS) or events such as tournaments, mini tounraments and the main league events.

MVPS (levels 90-99), AllStars (60-89),Majors (30-59)), Minors (10-29) and Rookies (0-9). Rookies can’t play in the main server. They have their own server where they can learn to play without the pressure of the hardcore gamers. Lots of ‘Noobs’ in the RK server.

When you get out of the rookie server and graduate to the Minor you have the option of joining and creating teams and playing in leagues and tournaments, which in my opinion is where the real fun begins.

If you would like to check out the game, Cal Ripken’s Real Baseball ( look me up if you get hooked.

The Man Registry

The Man Registry is the ultimate wedding gift registry and resource guide customized for men. Stereotypically woman has been given the task of taking care of all wedding plans, from the ceremony to the reception to the actually honeymoon. However you may have noticed a change in the past several years. Men’s’ roles have begun to grow. Not only do they take care of the rings but they are now taking part in decisions from seating arrangements, desserts and entertainment. So why not go the extra mile? Join The Man Registry and have a whole new world of opportunities and information available. Groom 101 is the informative part of the website which is separated into helpful categories including; Checklists, for the best man, for the groom, guy friendly showers, the honeymoon, the legal stuff, and the ring. Now the gift registry works exactly the same as any other registry except it is especially tailored for men. Now I am sure some men don’t mind receiving the couple oriented gifts but it would be nice to have some items that men would particularly enjoy too. There is a vast selection of gifts from; Kitchen, appliances, auto, travel, bars, games, electronics, grill, groomsmen gifts, MLB team shop, outdoors, tools and garage. Now that men are getting more involved in the matrimonial processes it makes sense to provide them with a registry of their own after all it’s there day too.

Coffee on Demand

TassimoI enjoy drinking coffee so when the decision of whether or not to buy a Tassimo machine came up I thought it would be easy. In the end I gave in and decided to try it. At around 150.00 Canadian I assure you it was well worth it. Some days I can drink a whole pot of coffee others only a couple of cups. A lot of the time my girlfriend would dump most of it down the sink needless to say a lot of coffee has gone to waste. Now that I have a Tassimo it’s amazing there is no more worry about running out of filters or measuring out the perfect amount of coffee. The Tassimo has already measured out packages of coffee, tea, cappuccino, hot chocolates and lattes. The hardest part of the Tassimo is figuring out what beverage you are going to make first! Each package has a bar-code which the machine’s lens will read in order to know what beverage it is making. All you have to do is make sure there is water in the container located in the back, put a packet of your beverage on the disk, close the lid and wait for the heating light to turn to automatic. If you make coffee and it is too strong you can add an extra burst of water by letting the auto light go manual and then pressing the button. This machine is perfect if you tend to waste a lot of coffee or only like to have a cup or two, or even if you enjoy some of the more complicated beverages but don’t want to do the work making them. The packages are around $5.00 each for about 14 discs. If you don’t have a lot of coffee drinkers in the house or just don’t go through much coffee it is a good investment. On the other hand if you don’t have the money to shell out the extra cash you may want to stick with your original coffee pot or just keep your coffee pot for when you have guests come over and need to make a full pot. In the end I highly recommend this product.
