my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

the whole michael vick thing

i can’t help but catch some of that michael vick crap just because it’s all over espn. the guy’s a thug and his friends already ratted him out for having illegal dogfights at his house. the dogs were trained to fight and if they were injured, he would euthanize them by drowning them or putting them to sleep. the entire thing is pretty sick.

this is what jamie foxx, the actor, had to say about it:

“It’s a cultural thing, I think. Most brothers didn’t know that, you know. I used to see dogs fighting in the neighborhood all the time. I didn’t know that was Fed time. So, Mike probably just didn’t read his handbook on what not to do as a black star. I know that cruelty to animals is bad, but sometimes people shoot people and kill people and don’t get time. I think in this situation,he really didn’t know the extent of it, so I always give him the benefit of the doubt.”

so i think jamie foxx is saying that if your culture allows it, then it should be given the benefit of the doubt. splendid justification technique there buddy. you must have gone to law school at santa clara university. just kidding.

this cartoon says it best:
