Why I Don’t Workout


1. Because you can’t make me anymore, United States Government.

2. I am trying to preserve water and what better way to waste a precious resource than guzzling it down from a metal waterhole.

3. I ran out of steroids and these white pills I supplemented with might actually be laxatives.

4. I am already angry. No one wants an angry AND a strong Korean running around Denver.

5. When I workout my fingers get extra big and it makes it hard to grab the zipper on my jeans.

6. I am too sexy when I run apparently because people always talk to me when I am jogging. Don’t you see me using my air for other things cupcake?

7. Last time I went for an “evening run” five cops tackled me and told me to stop resisting arrest…

8. I feel embarrassed lifting the 10 pound weights when Cindy is throwing up 50s. Chill the hell out Cindy!

9. I hate the smell of gyms. They smell like old socks, over active youths, and protein farts. Maybe because that is what they are.

10. People are always screaming and yelling for random reasons… or no reason at all. It feels like a mixture between a haunted house and a torture chamber. Personally I’m not a fan of either those.

Poem for you – aopinionatedman


Opinionated Man:

I don’t think anyone has written a poem about me before! At least that I know of. Thank you! -OM

Your goal is to offend everyone,

so no one

can feel above another

to highlight that we all falter

and yet he has a tendency to inspire

all while

walking down the thin wire

of anger

now dissipated, you became a blogger

a poet

and best of all a writer!

A poem made for you

When we open the big book of opinionated opinions

a sense of belonging formed, its instantaneous

its grittiness,

its humbleness

and best of all its openness

a consistency of relevance

A poem made for you

you try to stand by what you feel as truth

even if it means that you could be all alone

but your tenacity was shown

and your followers have grown

so stay true

and stay being you

A poem made for you

(From a series dedicated in appreciation of bloggers)

The Daily Opinion – Why do you reblog?


I have many people that mass reblog me and leave the same generic message which is actually just a self promotion post. While that doesn’t bother me most days, what does get on my nerves is the fact that I have to manually approve these because Akismet catches them.

Why do you reblog? I get very few views from sharing other posts and I do it obviously to share a little attention to things I find worthy of time. Do you reblog to make people visit your blog? Does that work for you? Why wouldn’t you instead just write posts. Notice the lack of question mark.

Moving


I’ve been away from the blog and that is why my responses are so slow. The ONLY thing I ever apologize for is missing comments, so I apologize for the slackage.

I am moving. I am physically moving, as in where I live…

I could lie and say this is because of death threats or something interesting, but unfortunately my moving stems from more mundane reasons. We are just buying a new house.

I have cleaned and painted so much in the past 3 days. Burn my eyes! I hope I never pick up another paint brush again!

I just thought I would let people know the reason for the slow movement on HR. Stay sexy bloggers.

Note: A week long guest author position to the blogger that tells me first where the saying “burn my eyes” came from.

You People Don’t Know Offensive


I get a real kick out of people that think they offend me with their comments. No one has yet said a single thing on my blog that has offended me I am sorry to say. Hate to kill some of your dreams here, but WordPress is a soft website that houses a bunch of nice people. Genuinely nice. Honestly you can save some finger energy by just not writing “I hope this doesn’t offend you,” because chances are you will either get a smile or an eye roll from me when I read your comment.

I seriously wonder sometimes where some of you live. They must be very nice places. You want to know offensive? Try being Asian and going to a 85% black school your whole life. The shit I have had said to me throughout my life trumps anything said to me on WordPress thus far. You want to know offensive? Try being an adopted Korean with a white name and having every Asian you meet call you a banana and white-washed and THEN they laugh at their own joke and expect you to laugh as well. You want to know offensive? Try being a minority in the United States Air Force and being stationed in Cheyenne, Wyoming for a couple years. Or have a blogger write posts about you for two weeks straight and when you finally do a retaliation post (less than 100 words) they file federal charges against you. Try getting some blogger emails saying they hope you die, you should move from Colorado, or that they want you to burn in hell.

Kiddie punches are thrown here people and I laugh when people say on other blogs that all I do here is “rant.” I actually have yet to really post a RANT on this blog in my opinion. When you see a 5,000 or more words post come up with a big “FUCK YOU” in the title, then you will all know it is on like donkey kong. Until then nothing you can say about me is going to phase me… but feel free to keep trying. Telling me to burn in hell eternally makes my day and gets me to chuckle in real life. If people want to see what real “attacks” are like go troll the CNN or Yahoo boards for a bit. I was a CNN.com commenter and a Yahoo.com commenter for years (got perm banned from CNN actually) so… I have some experience with both trolls and aggressive comments. Online poker tables are notorious for trolls as well and I saw my fair share of those playing poker for many years.

Just know that I write and share what I wish. I expect “attacks” and nothing any of you can say will offend me. Now… talking about my daughters is a different story. I moderate only two things here, comments directed at my family and also hateful people that claim they want me to die and still visit my blog. I just don’t see the point in A) acknowledging their existence and B) allowing their names to be highlighted on my blog that I work hard on. Disagree with me or even send me a hateful comment, that won’t make me mod you. Come on people… you don’t know offensive.
