M.I.A.

Sorry I've been MIA.

I just got back from a trip and working the start of my thesis and working on launching my website.

I'm really quite excited about it actually!

Well, stayed tuned.  This site will still be up and running with my personal stuff.

I decided to separate my tech life and my normal life.

How the 2014 midterm election FUCKED the environment.

I don't normally write about politics on this blog of random thoughts, but today I am.

Do you know this guy?


Well that is Senator James Inhofe.  
Senator James Inhofe meet my readers.
Everyone, meet Senator James Inhofe.

Senator James Inhofe has been serving our country since 1994.  Congrats on 20 years of service.

So, what does this guy have to do with the environment!?

Long story short.... 

The recent mid-term election gave the power of the senate to Republicans.  

Senator James Inhofe will become the head of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee.

The EPW deals with the following... 

1. Air pollution. 
2. Construction and maintenance of highways. 
3. Environmental aspects of Outer Continental Shelf lands. 
4. Environmental effects of toxic substances, other than pesticides. 
5. Environmental policy. 
6. Environmental research and development. 
7. Fisheries and wildlife. 
8. Flood control and improvements of rivers and harbors, including environmental aspects of deepwater ports. 
9. Noise pollution. 
10. Nonmilitary environmental regulation and control of nuclear energy. 
11. Ocean dumping. 
12. Public buildings and improved grounds of the United States generally,including Federal buildings in the District of Columbia. 
13. Public works, bridges, and dams. 
14. Regional economic development. 
15. Solid waste disposal and recycling. 
16. Water pollution. 
17. Water resources.

Being the head of the EPW is an important job, right?

Do you know what this book is?


This is the book that the Senator wrote.

And here's the main description...

The Greatest Hoax, Senator James Inhofe will reveal the reasons behind those perpetuating the Hoax of global warming, who is benefitting from the general acceptance of the Hoax and why the premise statements are blatantly and categorically false.

So you have Senator James Inhofe who doesn't believe in global warming, sworn to protect the environment.  

Thanks American politics.  Thanks.

WTF. PEOPLE. WTF. LADY GAGA CONCERT LISBON

WTF PEOPLE WTF.

I haven't been to a concert since Britney Spears, Las Vegas opening night, so I was really happy that Lady Gaga was going to be performing in Europe, so I bought tickets in February.

I thought I'd be easy to find someone to go with - APPARENTLY NOT.  I'm not even trying to sell the tickets, I just want someone to go with - seriously. 

Hang out with a friend - have an awesome time in Lisbon.

Nope  It's the day of the concert - it's past midnight here, and after asking maybe 30 people, all my FB friends, now my airbnb hosts here in Lisbon, none of them can go.

Even their friends can't go... Luis (my host), asked his friends TO GO TO A FREE CONCERT.

SOMEONE RESPONDED... BUT GUESS WHAT?!  HE CAN'T GO BECAUSE HE HAS TO TAKE HIS BF.

THIS IS WHY I DON'T HAVE A MOTHER FUCKING BF. and 
EVEN IF I DID, I WOULD GO PLACES WITHOUT HIS ASS.  

This is probably why I always travel alone and why I'm fucking single.

Yeah, I think it's time to leave.  The moment, I can't find a friend to go with me to a free Lady Gaga concert - is the time I need to leave... 


FIRSTWORLDPROBLEMS - I KNOW, BUT FUCK ME.

Must have iPhone 6 (smartphone) accessories.

Yes, there are awesome accessories out there, but here are some accessories that are must have for any smartphone user.

#1 a good case.

Weird thing about iPhone 6 cases is you don't really need an expensive one.  You need one that protects the corners, the camera on the back and a little bit of protrusion in the front - when you lay it face down.  Here's a great deal on a case $14.99 (with free shipping on Amazon). CLICK HERE. Official Apple cases will run you 3 times as much  =/


There are other fancy cases out there... Here's another one of my favorites... Snap! 6 
I got it on kickstarter, and hopefully it comes soon!  hahaha!



#2 speakers

Yes, iPhone 6 speakers are good, but they sound better on external speakers, just pair them via Bluetooth.  I got these on Amazon too (yes, I know) on sale for $29.99 CLICK HERE 

Or you can buy those Beats Pill or whatever for $200+.


#3 External Battery

I know, why would you need one of these?  Your smartphone has great battery life.  Well, this is awesome for when you are traveling, or on a road trip, or need to charge while you're on the go.  There are other ones out there, but this one is thinner, comes in different colors and its flat, easier to carry around!
