Christmas Is Dying

NO!!! I don't want Christmas to die! I grew up celebrating it and I want to keep it that way. Well now because of stupid snowflakes, even the schools are going to not allow the mention of Christmas in their classrooms. I would SO hate to be a child in today's world! Seriously! And you know who is the cause of all this? Atheists! A special kind of snowflake. They don't want it to be called "Christmas" anymore. They don't want people even using the word in the classroom. You can't say "Merry Christmas" anymore. Now they want people to use the term "Happy Holidays". I even saw a video about a school principal that wanted to ban candy canes from her school because its in the form of a letter J, which stands for Jesus. That is so DUMB!!

Modern liberals make me so sick! They want to ban everything that this country was built on. Of course the indians did not worship the GOD we know, they worship the sun, which is their god. But this country would never have advanced the way it did if not for the original settler's belief in GOD. People today seem to have forgotten that. Or they don't want to face it. I'm surprised they haven't forced all white people to move back to Europe. Well, with all the damn muslims who live there now, the only way you'd get me to move to Europe is with a gun in my back! Even then, I'd probably fight it. Because I would rather be dead than live side-by-side with muslims. They don't like dogs. I refuse to live with people like that all around me! And if any of them does anything bad to my dog, I'll break their necks!

Ya know, I've been bad-mouthed by muslims who say my attitude is why muslims cannot be accepted in this country. I told him the reason muslims are not accepted in this country is because they know they are all out to kill american christians. They want to start off with killing christians, then they want to progress to killing anyone else who will not worship Mohammed. And I refuse to worship Mohammed!! It was his stupid idea to ban dogs from muslim homes. Yet he says it's OK if you want cats in your home. Fuck that!! Fuck cats! I don't want them in my home!! A home with just a cat is not a home. It's a hell. I know because I lived with cats before and I hated every bit of it. They made the house smell worse than any dog I've ever had! They get into everything and knock things over and break things. Its like having a permanent toddler in the house! Only this one never grows up.

Well, Mohammed said something about angels not entering a house with a dog in it. Well, he LIED!! I feel the spirit of my grandma, my father, and GOD all around me! They are my angels. But when I had cats, if there were any angels in there then, they sure made the house stink! The only reason Mohammed said angels will enter a house with cats is because apparently cats were his "favorite animals" and he just didn't want to have to give them up. Not because it was true. He was probably one of those nearly gay men who preferred cats over dogs, with a high, squeaky voice and a limp wrist. Back in Mohammed's day, cats were seen as evil creatures by normal, thinking human beings. So, Mohammed wanted to make cats sound better than they actually are by telling his followers that angels will accept a house with cats, but not with dogs.

Besides, if cats are supposed to be near the ranking of GOD (or "Allah"), then why are so many cat people atheists? That's something I've noticed. Every atheist I know is a cat person. Not usually a dog person. Including one of my old best buddies, Cathy. Cathy is actually an agnostic, and she is a cat person. So definitely if Mohammed prefers cats, and cats welcome angels into the home, then why don't they invite some angels into the homes of atheists to help them believe in GOD? I'll tell you why. Because angels do NOT accept homes with cats in them!! Cats are Satan's advocates. Not GOD's. Dogs are really GOD's advocates. Almost every christian person I know is more into dogs than cats. Besides, there's got to be a good reason so many more people are allergic to cats than they are to dogs. I really and truly think cats were not meant to be domesticated.

I heard Mark Twain judged peoples' character by how much they liked cats. LOL! I had no idea Mark Twain was a wussy! I thought he was something of a genius the way he wrote classic stories. But if he judged people by how much they liked cats, then he must not have been very smart at all, and must not have had many friends. Back in his day, almost nobody liked cats. And nobody kept cats in the house. Yet serial killers were a rare thing then, and so was autism.

Speaking of which, I heard Donald Trump believes in that baloney about autism being caused by vaccines. I had to go to Twitter and tell him myself that vaccines are NOT the cause of autism. The rise in the popularity of cats is the cause of the rise in autism. Because cats carry parasites that affect peoples' brains. It's even worse if there is a cat and a pregnant woman in the house. THAT is what is causing autism in kids today. But people (especially vegans) don't want anyone to know that because they don't want to have to get rid of their "precious" cats. (that's sarcasm BTW. I'd NEVER call a cat "precious").

Well, I hate it that we now have to get rid of the phrase "Merry Christmas". Now they want us to just say "Happy Holidays". Which I am fine with. I used to always use that too, around Halloween. But I use it because IMO, it covers ALL the holidays during this season. Not just Christmas. It's like saying "Happy Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's" all in one phrase. But Christmas is one of the last holidays this season (until New Year's), so around this time of year, I usually use the term "Merry Christmas". But whether I choose to say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays" is MY choice, I wouldn't do either for anyone special. Too many people want to cater to others who are just not normal, thinking, rational human beings. I say fuck them! I wouldn't say anything to those people anyways!

Miracle or Just Simple Kindness?

Wow! I don't know what to think! I never would have believed something like this could happen to me. Not me! Somebody else maybe. But definitely not me!

I went grocery shopping yesterday at one of our 2 local grocery-department stores. One of the reasons I needed to go yesterday was because I needed to get some peppermint sticks for some cookies I was going to make. Every year for Christmas, it has become a tradition to make peppermint meltaway cookies. It's a family favorite. I had my portable cart (what I like to call my "little old lady cart") with me, and I had some groceries piled up almost to the rim of this cart. I always go by dial-a-ride. I don't take the bus anymore because the construction in this town has made the buses so unreliable! I never know when the bus will actually get me to my destination. Besides, when I have a shitload of groceries, it's no fun taking the bus and walking from the bus stop to my apartment, and Mya hates the sound of that cart rolling. Besides, Mary is back. And I don't like her. She's a consistent bus rider. I don't like her because she is constantly shit-talking me and Mya. She doesn't even know either of us! I talked to her for maybe 30 minutes one time, but she still doesn't know me! And she sure doesn't know Mya. And now she has even shit-talked my sis. Katrina thinks she may have the beginnings of dementia, and I don't know maybe she's right. Or she may be shit-talking me because I don't talk to her. But shit-talking someone is not a good way to get someone to talk to you. It's a great way to get even more ignored and disliked.

Believe me, I know. hehehehe!!! 😁 I'm saying though, Mary could be shit talking me and my family to seek some kind of attention from me. Any kind. Maybe because I am the only one in this town who doesn't speak to her, that's the only way she can think of to get my attention. Some people are like that. They get bothered by that one person who does not talk to them, even though everybody else talks to them, so they seek to get that person's attention any way they have to. Even by being hateful. But what Mary doesn't know is that I am an introvert. I only talk to people I know VERY well. Not to be unkind. That's just the way an introvert is.

Anyways, yesterday I went to the local grocery store and I had finished all my shopping, paid for it, and I went into the area where the shopping carts were kept to wait for the dial-a-ride bus. I don't think I looked like a tramp, I had on a nice top. The pants were used but still clean. But anyways, while I was sitting there, I saw this woman approach me from outside. I'd never seen her before, but I saw she was coming up to me. She handed me something and said "Merry Christmas" and walked back outside. I looked at the object she put in my hand and saw it was a $20 bill! I thanked her! By that time, she was already walking outside. I was stunned though. That has never happened to me before!! I didn't question it though. I live here alone, so I don't get many Christmas gifts. I get all kinds of cards from family though. But no one has ever just handed me money like that before. I mentioned this on Facebook and my mom said "The LORD works in mysterious ways!" She's right too! HE does! I sure could use that extra $20! It'll come in handy!

Michael's Statue Approved

Well, I heard this morning about Michael's statue being approved. That's wonderful!! I am actually glad to hear that. Even though it was the brain child of an asswipe, still it's awesome. I haven't seen that asswipe in a while, and I believe she deleted her Facebook account. But who cares?! All that aside, I still wanted to see this happen. Of course I haven't joined many INXS groups on Facebook. I have no intention of joining either. I'm even considering leaving one of the groups. I'm actually in too many INXS groups! I don't like that. So, I'm thinking of leaving one or more of them.

The other day, someone on a group posted a video of an interview with Michael. It was a bad recording, and was only a small piece of the interview. Well, I found a better version of the full interview and I was going to share it with the other people in the group. I came close! I had the link copied and I was on my way back to the group to post it. But then I stopped myself. I thought about back when I posted that full version of Michael's Rough Guide to Hong Kong on the Statue for Michael group. I thought about how much I now regret sharing that with that group of bozos! I should not have done it! And if I'd known back then how those people were going to turn their backs on me after my father died, I wouldn't have shared it with them! When I copied that link for this interview video, I said to myself "Wait a minute! What am I doing?!" I closed down the Facebook page, saying "Screw that! They can come to YouTube and find this themselves! I'm not sharing this with anyone!"

Well, I got the video now, in my own collection. That's where it's staying. I'll never post it to Facebook. Fuck that! I'm never posting anything I have to Facebook INXS groups again. Ya know something? I heard Delilah P. (or Violet Hamilton whatever the fuck it calls it's self now) is now taking credit for that video I posted of Michael's Rough Guide to Hong Kong. That stupid fuck had NOTHING to do with finding that video! She was originally one of the fans who complained because she couldn't find part 1 of that video, which had somehow been taken off of YouTube. I was the one who saved all 3 parts to that video. I was the one who put them together and made them a full video. I was also unfortunately the one who posted that video first on Facebook. Now, I wish I hadn't. Well, there is a special place for Delilah in Hell when she leaves this world. I just would so LOVE to punch that woman square in the gut before then.

Funny thing how I used to think INXS fans were the nicest fans of all. But no. I was wrong. Too many of them are liberals. I am also a member of another Facebook group of another rock group, and I've actually found the fans of that group are much more fun than INXS fans. They don't seem to be quite as uptight as INXS fans are. They know more how to cut loose and have fun. They also have their own little "class clown" in the group and everyone seems to have accepted him pretty well. INXS fans would see someone like that and cast him out as a troublemaker. Like they did me. I don't know. Maybe it's because INXS fans are getting too old. But they take things much more literal and much more personal than fans of other groups seem to. I think anytime you have a dead band member, the fans are eventually going to act so uptight. And even more so if the girlfriend of that deceased band member kills herself.

I still don't like Paula Yates. Nothing is going to change that. I still think Michael should not have gotten with her at all. He'd still be here if he hadn't.

Well, this morning the fans were asked what pose they'd like to see Michael's statue in. I remember when this first got started, people wanted to see Michael put up in that pose he's in on the album cover for Live Baby Live; with his arms outstretched and facing the sky. Personally, I don't want to see that pose for this statue. Think about it. This statue may be 10 feet tall. Who is going to be able to see his face if it's facing skyward? I think he should be in a pose where he's looking out into the world. Maybe something more similar to this...

With a microphone in his hands of course. But more like this than like that pose on the Live Baby Live album cover.

Well, regardless of what I think of that Statue for Michael group, I am glad to see this finally come to fruition. Of all the people who have statues in this world in their honor, few deserve it as much as Michael does. He had a natural talent for singing. That's rare for anyone. But shit! Why Melbourne??? Melbourne is a shithole!! I haven't been there myself, and have no plans whatsoever to go, but from what I hear from native conservative Australians, Melbourne is Australia's California. It's a place where the worst of the worst go to fester. So that must mean that there is no chance I will get to see this statue. But oh well! Just knowing it's there is good enough for me. Michael's sister seems to be really happy about this too, and that's what counts. She had this to say...

For sure! Her own baby doll will finally be remembered for the talented person he was! So many people seem to have forgotten how great Michael really was. People today remember the 1980s, but don't seem to remember how INXS shaped the 80s. That can certainly be visible in the Shabooh Shoobah album. In 1982 and 83, the music was corny!! To put it mildly! I remember hearing the songs from those years and they were more like something you'd hear on albums of children's songs, with someone who has a kooky voice singing. But not Shabooh Shoobah. Listen to Don't Change and try to tell me that song is not ahead of it's time!! You won't hear anything like it before 1984 at all! That is how INXS shaped 80s music.

Am I Losing Connection?

Man! On Quora, I've noticed that I'm getting a lot of shit from people for posting this one answer. LOL! The question was about what are some weird facts about animals that nobody else knows. I took some of the most interesting and unusual facts from a 2008 blog in this site (that I actually got from an old email I received back then) and posted them as my response to that question. I also added an extra one myself that was not on that list about Streaked tenrecs. Well over the past couple of days, several people have told me that several things I listed are wrong. LOL! I just sit back and smile at them, because the only one that nobody has said was wrong was the one I wrote about Streaked tenrecs. Only the ones I got off that old list. They were things I never knew of was right or wrong, but I listed them in my answer because they were the most interesting.

Anyway, people are going to see those and say I don't know shit about animals. I remember last year, Gabby Guthrie said the same thing because I said that a dog, someone claimed was a husky, actually looked more like an akita. Gabby mocked my opinion because she was an akita owner. Well, I believe whole-heartedly she was just a teenager (or an old fart who thinks like a teenager) playing games with me. That's why I have her blocked on Facebook. I'm not there to play games with kids. Nor with people who think like kids. Shoot! That was the reason I used to hate show breeders. Because the ones I used to meet acted like little kids on the playground! That's still the reason I hate ADS people too. But really, if the only indication she had that I don't know about animals is me seeing a dog, that looked like an akita, and saying so, then that's not bad. Really! I never said it was an akita. I just said it looked like one.

But anyways, all that aside. After seeing those people on Quora correcting the things I wrote in my answer, I wonder, have I lost my knowledge of animals? I really have not been keeping up with the latest findings about modern animals. That's because the new findings go against what I learned as a kid. For example, now the Malagasy carnivores have been taken out of the family of mongooses and civets. Modern scientists have found that they've been isolated long enough to perpetuate a whole new family. But I don't see it that way. I see it the way I've always seen it, that they look like mongooses, so they are mongooses. But then again, one could argue that because opossums look like rats, that they must be rats. Or that because koalas look like bears, then they must be bears. Or because lions look more like dogs, that they must be dogs. Which I know is not so. But now, because of new studies in DNA, people are finding out differences we used to think was just simply variety, now constitute these animals to represent different families.

I dunno, I will never get used to the new methods! That's why I stopped studying today's animals. I stick with my mammals of tomorrow. I'd rather do that than anything. At least I know if an animal is different, I can place it in a different group myself. I have a simple classification method I use in my Metazoic site; I separate animals in groups of Large Grazers, Small Grazers, Carnivores, Flying Mammals, and Pentadactyls (formerly primates). Although a family can be divided among those groups. For example the Metazoic kangaroo family. There are small grazers and large grazers in that group in the Metazoic. But there is also one carnivorous genus; Carnophalanger. It is Australia's top predator in the Metazoic. It reins above all else, even crocodiles. You'd never known it was related to a group of nearly 100% grazers. Unlike the majority of kangaroos today, in the Metazoic most roos are able to move their legs independently. So, Carnophalanger moves more like an ostrich. It only hops when it needs to.

Anyways, that is why I don't know much about modern animals. Not as much as I used to. I guess I've lost touch with modern studies. I still class the Malagasy carnivores in the same family with mongooses and civets today, and in the Metazoic, even expanded the family. I will always class them together. I see very little difference. I call it simple variety. And anyways, I prefer to keep going with my Metazoic animals anyways. As soon as I reach my goal of 5000 species of mammals in the Metazoic, then I will concentrate on birds of the Metazoic. I've already got a page dedicated to flightless birds in the Metazoic. As soon as I reach my goal for the mammals, I'll work on flying birds. First, I'm thinking of coming up with more Microchiropters. I should! In today's world, they outnumber the pteropods. Although I like the pteropods better. They're cuter. But I know cuter does not always mean they will outrank their uglier competitors. If that were so, then African wild dogs would outrank lions in Africa! Well, the dogs are better hunters. But they are also cuter than lions are. However, they are not as strong when they stand alone against a lion.

Well, in the Metazoic, I think I'll keep the main difference between the pteropods and microbats being that the pteropods are active during the day, and microbats only at night. We need some night mammals in the Metazoic. I don't have many. I'm trying to make tomorrow's mammals opposite of what they are today. Most mammals today are active mostly at night. Lately even some that have been active during the day are moving around more at night because of humans. But in the Metazoic, humans are gone. So, mammals can move around more during the day.

But anyways, I'm either losing touch or losing my mind. Well, I lost my mind long ago. LOL! But I am also losing touch with modern animals because I've been working too hard on my futuristic mammals. Even in my stories, almost all the animals I use in my stories are from my Metazoic site. Well, that started with the story "The Mischievous Mongoose". When that story was first written by a friend, and I used to take it to school to get other peoples' opinions of it. Most people saw it was about a mongoose and right off they'd think "It sounds like Rikki Tikki Tavi." Well, I got tired of that. So did the friend I had that wrote the story. Well, in 1994, after working on my Metazoic project for a while, I got an idea. How about use one of the mongoose species from that project instead and rewrite the whole story over again? And it worked! With the permission from the remaining family, I rewrote the story to accommodate one of the mongooses from my collection. I chose this guy...

Meet Tarboailurus, a giant mongoose of the future. Definitely NOT Rikki Tikki Tavi!! This is an 18-foot long version of Rikki Tikki Tavi. And his only prey is not snakes. Though they could take on an anaconda and win. Although Diana, the mongoose in the story, is a baby throughout the story, she does play with dangerous snakes and kills them. But in the end, she and her new friends, Jasper and Katie, meet "The Mad Anaconda", who takes Katie as his prey. And Diana rescues her.

Tarboailurus is BIG!! But it is also very fast, just like modern mongooses. It has 12-inch long canines that it uses to stab it's prey. It has retractable claws like a cat's, to subdue it's prey. It also has a long, stiff tail that is used for balance when it leaps onto the back of a large prey animal. And yes, if this animal were around today, it'd be very dangerous to humans! You couldn't imagine being chased by an 18-foot long animal that moves like lightening, with 12-inch sharp teeth and 5-inch razor-sharp claws, and sees you as prey. No human could survive that!
