MBA, Obama, and Water
Today, I finally was able to register for LSUS‘ Masters of Business Administration program. I had to go to a stupid orientation that wasted 30 minutes of my life and then had to go across campus to a computer lab to waste another 30 minutes of my life where they showed people how to register. I just needed them to unlock my Compass so I could register. I’m not a retard so I knew which classes I wanted.
Jenny is also starting the MBA program, though she is doing pre-requisites, so she was able to already register for her classes, and they made her go to it too. We then went to get our new Pilot Cards made which took forever, and then to the bookstore to find out how ridiculously expensive books are.
All in all, I paid a little over $1500 for school and $400 for books. I hate school.
Conservatives will believe almost anything that another one of their kind makes up about a non-conservative candidate, so it shouldn’t surprise me that people would believe absolutely fabricated lies about Obama‘s background as a "radical islamist" and things like that.
Today at work, someone forwarded around that lie, so I did reply to all, and I set the record straight:
That story about Obama is not true, even though it claims “We checked this out on "snopescom".”
See the snopes article:
Not surprising, I suppose. I just get irritated by people spreading lies, especially when the lie even says it was verified by Snopes, which it obviously wasn’t. People will actually believe these things without looking them up like I do.
Well, you know what they say about Shreveport: it’s a nice place to visit, but don’t drink the water. We’re the new Mexico. They don’t really say that, but they might now. Today, we had a serious water situation. It’s still not back to normal, and a boil advisory is still in effect. I won’t be drinking city water for a long time. Luckily, we have bottled water at work, and I have bottled water at home.
Fatburger was closed when I went by today, and Moe’s was only serving bottled drinks. Circle K wouldn’t sell ICEEs or fountain drinks. All the children were sent home from school and won’t be returning tomorrow. Lots of people are being affected by this, and it shows how serious of a problem it is to have a single water treatment facility.
