I lost my home, I lost my job & my van broke down. I live in Salina Ks. I pay a hell of a lot in child support so I couldn't afford rent when they cut my hours. I told my work I was going to take a leave of absence so I could stay with my mom in Greensburg till September. I changed my mind during the week and decided to stay and live at the homeless shelter untill I can get back on my feet. They hired somebody to replace me and now I am out of a job. I went to Greensburg for the weekend and I was heading back to Salina & my van broke down. Transmission leaking everywhere. My mom came to pick me up and the van is in the shop. Just haven a hell of a time.

Sorry I have been gone so long.

Stay strong brother. No shit, no flowers. Look for ways you can start to pull yourself up, a little at a time. There is ALWAYS a way out, and nothing is hopeless.

Just think:

Last year, we had no QB, Carl was a dick, Herm was coach, LJ was smackin' ho's, Bowe was dropping balls, we had 10 sacks.... it goes on and on and on.

NOW, we may have a QB, Carl got his come-uppence, Herm got the boot, we got Pioli, Haley is a hardass, and there is hope for a brighter future. The Broncos are whores also, but that's not new.

Such is life.

What?

There's also this, Mr. KC Tattoo ...

Swearing can make you feel better, lessen pain

LONDON (Reuters Life!) - Cut your finger? Hurt your leg? Start swearing. It might lessen the pain.

Researchers from the school of psychology at Britain's Keele University have found swearing can make you feel better as it can have a "pain-lessening effect," according to a study published in the journal NeuroReport.

Colleagues Richard Stephens, John Atkins and Andrew Kingston, set out to establish if there was any link between swearing and physical pain.

"Swearing has been around for centuries and is an almost universal human linguistic phenomenon," says Stephens.

"It taps into emotional brain centers and appears to arise in the right brain, whereas most language production occurs in the left cerebral hemisphere of the brain. Our research shows one potential reason why swearing developed and why it persists."

Their study involved 64 volunteers who were each asked to put their hand in a tub of ice water for as long as possible while repeating a swear word of their choice.

They then repeated the experiment using a more commonplace word that they would use to describe a table.

The researchers found the volunteers were able to keep their hands in the ice water for a longer when swearing, establishing a link between swearing and an increase in pain tolerance.

Stephens said it was not clear how or why this link existed but it could be because swearing may increase aggression.

"What is clear is that swearing triggers not only an emotional response, but a physical one too, which may explain why the centuries-old practice of cursing developed and still persists today," he said.

I knew this guy that we used to call "Boston Harvey". Boston Harvey was a pretty cool dude with a twinkle in his eye, a big, giant, handlebar mustache, the calloused hands of a roofer, and the temperament and inherent nature of a philosopher. Anyhow, Boston Harvey had this saying, "If you're sucking air, it's a good day." Ol' Boston Harvey used to say that all the time. Over and over. Even the last time I laid eyes on Boston Harvey, that's what he said.

I never thought to ask Boston Harvey about exhaling.

Dang. I think you might want to consider calling your attorney and get him to send the judge a letter or something. Probably only cost you a couple hundred or so to do that. With luck, the judge will waive the child support for a while until you at least get a job.

Reminds me of the old joke about the guy who got fired from his job. On the way home, his car broke down. Pulling over, he walked the rest of the way home to find his house had burned down, and a note on the door from his wife saying she'd taken the dog and left him. Sighing, the man went into the garden of the smoldering house where he'd been growing strawberries. He picked the strawberries and put them in a basket, and went door-to-door with a sign, "Strawberries, $1,00 a pound". The first door he knocked on, the door opened to reveal a scantily-clad smiling MILF. The man immediately started crying. "Oh, my!" she exclaimed. "What's the matter?!?" "Oh, I've just had the worst day!" the man sobbed. "I lost my job, my car broke down, my house burned down, and my wife and dog left me, and all I have left in this world is this basket of strawberries... and now you're gonna f**k me out of my strawberries!"

Mr. Raised On Rats and a Giant Sphincter walked into a bar. Mr. Raised On Rats ordered a beer and the bartender said, "Before I serve you, who's the big, ugly asshole?" Taken slightly aback, Mr. Raised On Rats said, "That's not an asshole. That's a Giant Sphincter!" to which the bartender replied, "Hey you! I was talking to the Sphincter."
