I work third shift, and now they are telling me that it is linked to cancer. Except I don't think that third shift alone would cause an increased cancer. What would cause an increased risk is increased caffeine and tobacco consumption among third shift employees, and sleep deprivation. I'd take this study more seriously if it accounted for those factors.

Shameless Product Plug!!!

At my Cafepress shop, I have added shirts with fake political slogans, like:
"Undecided for President"
"God is my co-defendant"
"Draft fat people. They're expendable, and need the exercise."

DISCLAIMER: I do not advocate a military draft, nor do I advocate that criminal charges be filed against any deities.

Gloria's Trucking Blog

Gloria Diaz has a blog about her new career as a truck driver. It is complete with photos of the stuff that she runs over. I promise to post the link to Mike's accounting blog as soon as he starts it. Only Mike Sylvester can make accounting interesting.

I cannot blog about my job. On a good day, my job is boring. I'm not allowed to talk about the bad days.

Open Holiday Tread Post

I figure most of the anonymous trolls are the kind who don't get invited to Thanksgiving dinner, and therefore are reading this blog instead of shopping or eating. So talk about whatever you want or insult whomever you want. Whatever floats your boat or grinds your axe.

I received a Neilsen survey in the mail

They called and asked if I would like to participate. They sent $30 in cash and two booklets, one for each TV set that I own. I am now supposed to record what shows I watch each day, in 15 minute intervals.

TV is supposed to be passive entertainment. Now that I have to fill out paperwork for my TV veiwing, I've been spending more time on the computer. Everytime I feel the impulse to turn on the TV, I think "Ok, I should log this." I have gotten to the point where I am now too lazy to watch TV. The reporting period started Thursday the 8th, and today is the last day of the reporting period. So far all I watched was football and cartoons.

Open Post Thread!

Comment, criticize, or plug anything you like! I'll still delete spam posts, but pretty much anything else is fair game.

Madden Tournament

Every year Robert Fuller and I play a season on the most recent edition of Madden for the Playstation 2. Usually we start in August, but this year we decided to delay it until after the election. I usually play with the Bears and he usually plays with the Saints. Anyone who wants to play with the Colts or another AFC team is welcome to join us, we hate playing against the AI in the Superbowl.

I am going to crush Fuller in the playoffs. I am going to sack his QB so hard that he'll become an advocate for stemcell research.
