Thursday, July 28, 2011



Hey yall.  Today was a rather eventful day.  Have you ever encountered a impossible situation, and then decided that you would wait for someone elses help? 5 times?  Well, let's start from the beginning.  In the mornings, I have canoeing from 9 to 11.  For a recap, this is for a merit badge.  Yesterday, we practiced capsizing.  Anyways, the standard flipping procedure is to lean to the side until the canoe tips.  However,  this one kid flopped off the side without flipping the canoe, which was hilarious cause he was failing at failing. LOL.  Anyways, during the duration of the ride, our jerky counselors were constantly pegging us with tennis balls, which kinda hurt.  

Later, then they putted up to another canoe (the counselors ride a motorboat) and flipped them.  Then they came up to us with a nasty look and got broadside.  Then, me, knowing that one way or another I'd end up sub-marine, so being ninja, I flipped into their pathetic lil' motorboat and then got ready to cannonball out, but then they threw me out. :-( Yah.  But I did save Wubz and my canoe.  That was good.  Wubz paddled off to save our canoe while that happened.  

Some hornets also built a nest right next to mah window.  Hmm.  Nothing a good jetblast can't fix.  

And of course, no awesome adventure is complete without a comic, which will come later.  

--Jro :-)

Trick! How to get a new Favicon. (Like jedi chick and Rebbeca)

A favicon is what you see next to the address bar.
Here's a tutorial how to get one.  Summed up, it's under design.
REMEBER It takes a while for it to show up, so just sit for like 5 hours and it'll work. :-)

MUST SAVE AS A JPEG!! Use a pic editor.





Cogito ergo sum. 

I think, therefore I am.




I'm taking a merit badge week-long course at the sea base this week.  We saw a bat ray, but not much else happened.  An officer came to our scout meeting  and presented the D.A.R.E program.  Yea.  Still working on comics.

Yesterday we had a pool party.  Fun one too.  We were going directly from tennis.  A little kid was riding around on my back during a water fight,  when someone decided to play volleyball!  So, I would kinda stumble around and hope he caught the ball.  The only problem was that for some reason, whenever the ball landed close to us, he'd start bouncing.  P.S We biked to it, but I didn't know, so I packed the car, then on my way to the pool, I realized that we didn't drive, so I had to bike back to my house and get my stuff.

We ate ribs and chicken and morroccan muffins (cupcakes)(as a joke) and salad and a ton of other good stuff.

 - Identification Please

Scouts: Hurkey Creek Campout!

This was a unique campout for two reasons.  First, It was an all family campout rather than just a scout campout.  Second, It was a build-your-own shelter camp. Meaning that you had to lash(tie) a shelter out of poles and tarps.  More pics after the break.  WARNING: 97 pics.  Not for your Aunt's old Dell.  Nevermind.

Well I got back from camping early Sunday, so I'll make a post on it later. 

Friday, July 15, 2011

Huzzah!!! Again.

Going scout camping later! We are building our own shelters, and I have taken the liberties to build a hammock.  Technically, we're supposed to lash (tie) Our own shelters. So the option is to fall through your shelter (hammock), or have your shelter fall through you. Hmm..  Well, I hope the hammock works.  BTW Amaranthine has oh so kindly let me bring her camera.  

I just hope this doesn't happen.

Lol.   Wouldn't put it past Bryson. (The bison).

Video: Motivation

Great vid.  Not too loud, not too annoying.

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them.
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
Concentration never hard to break it.
Situation never what you want it.

Rant: IT'S NO JOKE!!!

This Thursday, at my swim team, some kids were having this "Sibling-name-guessing-game."  This kid named Rea, however, was taking it a lot more seriously. 

We all knew her sister's name was Maya.  Ok? So. 

Kid: Is it Maya? :-O
Rea: NO!!!!  DD:<
Me: O rly?  ;-)
Rea: No. >.<
Other kid: O rly?
Rea: NO I SWEAR!!!!! DDD:<<<
Rea: ~psst~ Maya don't tell them your name. }:)
Me: -.-
Rea: Maya your name is Janet ok?
Me: What's the first letter? :-?
Rea: M!! :-\
Other kid: Second?
Maya: A!!! ;-DD
Rea: Her name is Janet. ]:0
Me: No it's not.
Maya: It's ----
Rea: I'll give you licorice if you don't tell them.
Maya: :-P
Maya: IT"S MAYA!!!
Me: Mhm.
Me: And Rea, you can stop swearing now cause' everyone knows that your swears are "JUST LIES, AND MORE CONTRADICTION"

By now you probably can tell that Rea isn't exactly my best friend.  You know what? Two things, first, DON'T SWEAR.  Period. Questions?  You realize that swears are vows to God.  The Bible says:
  1. Matthew 5:36
    And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black.
  2. James 5:12
    Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise you will be condemned.

In 1st and 2nd Samuel, David and Saul would swear not to kill people and not to destroy their nation, not just this "Her name isn't Maya".  ESPECIALLY lying. GOD HATES LYING OK?  And GOD HATES SWEARING. So, what happens when you add the two???

And this is more a a personal part.  First, IT"S A GAME. Why incur God's wrath in tic tac toe? Ok. Just a joke.  Why would she give out her sister's name even though  she was trying to keep it secret?  And if her sister's name starts with a "M" then IT"S NOT "JANET".   And they're Indian.  Her name is Rea.  Rea and Janet? BEETHOVEN AND BOB???  There's side effects too.  Dishonesty.  Skipping laps, cheating on drills ect...

Swearing is serious.  Lying is serious.  Swearing and Lying is VERY serious.  It's already obvious nobody trusts her.  Her swearing doesn't get much more than a -.-   
Your reputation is EVERYTHING you do.  How, where, why, attitude, the words and phrases you use...  Your mouth is pretty much 45% of your personality.  And no. Wearing lipstick won't help.

Happy 4th everyone!! Remember that 200+ years ago, our forefathers created a commonwealth and separated from Britan.  The U.S has one of the longest standing constitutions.  We are all free and have rights.  IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT? Sorry to viewers in England.  :-)  But remember the people who are enslaved, who have no government, who are gripped in civil war.  Be thankful for this great country.  Remember to pray for our wonderful country, and for the people in it.  Happy 4th!!!

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust;”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

That verse is rarely sung, but it is my second favorite.  


News: That didn't help

Fresh irony
