My Thoughts On Abortion

Now, I’m probably going to get some flaming comments and heated debates about this topic, but I wanted to make it clear how I felt about Abortion.  The short answer?  I’m against it.  Here’s why.

Some people may not know this, but there are options for Pregnant women.  The last thing we need them doing is giving up on life completely.  Pregnancy centers and adoption centers are there for them when they need it.

Let me ask you a couple of questions.  Is it legal for someone to murder a child?  Is it legal for someone to murder a child that is only 6 months into pregnancy?  Chances are, you answered no to both those questions.  Then why should it be legal for someone to commit murder on any child?

Well, what about rape victims?  Shouldn’t they have the option to abort?  Can I abort your brain right now for asking that question?  I’m sure we can put it to good use for Scientific study to find out why some people become stupid.

Let’s get a few things straight.  If you abort a child, you might be aborting the next great scientist with the cure for aids.  You might be aborting the next great person who’ll be able to bring this world closer to world peace.  You might be aborting the next great doctor who discovers a way to double the life expectancy of mankind.

Women that abort their children can attest that it crosses their minds all the time.  It’s another pain that they have to deal with on a daily basis.  So, if a woman was raped, then why should she be “Forced” to go through another pain that could scar her for life?

It’s much better for a person to go through life and become a stronger person knowing that they gave their child the best chance they could give them.  Not to mention easier.  Abortion should not be an option.  Period.

Abortion in my opinion is an atrocious act towards humanity.  Any sane mother wouldn’t kill their children, so why should we be allowed to do that legally?  Which side of the fence are you going to be on when it boils down to it?  Life or Death?

What To Get?

Ok, many of you know that picking a Birthday present some times can be a pain.  I mean seriously?  Techie/Nerdy types are even harder to choose for.  Why?  What do you get someone that’s a Nerd/Geek?  So much too choose from, so much variety.

I have believe it or not managed to figure out what I want for my Birthday.  It’s an Android Tablet, running version 2.2.  Sorry Apple fans, iPads are just way out of my budget.  The Tablet I chose, is only $75.  Can’t hardly go wrong there.

Don’t ask me how I did that.  Hint: Copy/Paste.  I figured for those kind of specs, it’s worth the $75, unless you can find a better one?

Where did I find this bad boy?  Here’s the link at YunSenBuy.

I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get it within the next couple of weeks at least.  We’ll see how that goes and I’ll keep you guys informed.

Birthday Songs – Ewe

Today is my 30th Birthday and having dinner at any restaurant is usually interesting on this day.  You know what I mean, they come out with a piece of Birthday Cake and sing that little annoying song.

Ok, the Happy Birthday song, isn’t annoying.  Just to get that clear.  I’m talking about the song they sing at the restaurant.  Happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday, happy happy birthday.  You know the one.  That catchy, but annoying one that makes you embarrassed to be there.

The funny thing is, we were at Applebees the night before and someone had a birthday in the booth right behind us.  I was like, oh no, that song again.  Even when it’s not your birthday, it makes you smile and blush.  All I have to say is WTF?

I was going to ask the waitress at Outback, what they offered for Birthdays.  My mother told me I could always tell her it’s your Birthday, but they’ll come out and sing that song.  I answered right away, “No, absolutely not.  That’s just down right embarrassing.”

Needless to say, I didn’t have a Birthday song, nor did I have a piece of Cake.  Personally, I don’t like Birthday Cake on my Birthday.  If it’s another Birthday, I’m usually fine with eating a slice of Cake.  I”d rather have a tasty Cheesecake instead, with strawberries and whip cream on top.

I decided to not get the Cheesecake either.  My mother was like, “for the whole $4 (for the slice), I could make you a whole Cheesecake.”  So, I’m sure you know what I opted for.  I’d rather have a whole Cheesecake than a slice any day and no one makes them better than my mom does.  That’s I’ve found yet.

With that, I hope your birthday is just as eventful.  Joking around about silly birthday songs  and what ever else you can find to joke about.  And may you get a whole Cheesecake on your Birthday to celebrate.

Daily Fitness Goals

A few days ago, I’ve started to keep track of my Cardio progress.  Today is day 4 of the start.  Missed a day, so I had to make up for it by adding an extra minute to my Cardio routine.  What is my fitness goal/challenges?  To add one minute of Cardio to my routine.  In other words, on day one I started with 10 minutes.  Then add one minute to that the next day to get 11 minutes of Cardio.  The 11 minute mark is actually the one that I missed.  The reason I decided not to do it, was because I had did quite a bit of walking that day.  Still, no excuses.  Someone slap me.  Here’s an update on my progress.

Day One

10:00 Minutes
About 160 Calories burned
At 44-46 RPM

Day Four 

13:00 Minutes
About 228 Calories burned
44-46 RPM

Machine used, Elliptical.

On Hold

Well, this bites.  Another piece of my computer is falling apart.  Yep, my DVD Burner is going bad.  What’s the deal?

Some of you may remember my first piece of software to test and review was supposed to be Encyclopedia Britannica.  Yep, that failed.  I took back the software to Staples, only to get a replacement that had the same issue.  I tried installing another game, Sim City 4, which also happened to be a failed attempt.

So, I tried a few things.  Took apart the DVD Burner and cleaned the lens.  After putting it back together, no success.  Grrr.  It was a pain to take apart to begin with.

Updating the firmware was a big failure too.  I had to go through a site that wasn’t the official site of LiteOn, which is the DVD Burner manufacturer.  Maybe that had something to do with it, but hey, was worth a try.  Doesn’t do LiteOn any good to not be able to update the firmware.

The last thing I did was delete the register keys, uninstall the driver, and reboot.  Nope, notta.  Yet another failure.  At this point the frustration is building.  So, I tried one last thing.

Instead of a CD-Rom game that I had, I tried one of the DVD-Rom games I had.  Spore was the choice of game.  Put it in the drive……  Success.  The DVD was recognized and I was able to install the game.  My first review, just might be of Spore.

After reading a few forum post, from tech forums, I’ve come to the conclusion that my DVD Burner is on its last leg.  Going to have to get a new one, but I’m not sure when that will be.

I now have two options.  Continue with Spore and check out some free games online.  Yes, free fits the Budget category.  Or put the whole budget games and software route on hold.  I know though that’s not what you want, so I’ll be checking out games online that I can download and what not.  Stay tuned.

Budget Games and Software

I will be reviewing some Budget Games and Software in the coming weeks.  Most people are looking fun and good software on a budget.  What is my budget?  I’m limiting my purchases to $20.  You can expect a review on a budget product most Fridays.  Some weeks may be skipped, do to various factors.

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover they say, but the cover is the selling point.  Instead, I’m going to say, “You shouldn’t judge a game/software by it’s price.”  Just because it’s budget, doesn’t mean it’s not a good game/software.  For example, you can now get Sim City 4 for $10.  That is one product I will review.

The product I will be reviewing up in the coming week is, Encyclopedia Britannica.  This information filled product is a bit more accurate than Wikipedia and I’ll be giving it a whirl over the next week.  When opinion matters, I’ll be giving you my two cents on Friday.  Stay tuned for that.

If you’d like to send me a free copy of your software to review, then I’d be happy to oblige.  The software must be a reason price and budget friendly.
