|Well, it finally happened. They put me on probation here at the lab. The morons. We had a test launch yesterday of the new 5 billion dollar IPX-O2 rocket and I fucked up one of the boosters which caused the bastard to impale itself into the ground instead of launching. Crap. It all came down to one gate, I had a NAND gate where there was supposed to be an AND gate and that was all she wrote. I'm not gonna go down without a fight though. They friggin expect me to work these 8 hour days with only two days off on the weekend to recover... how the heck can I be productive under such a demanding schedule. Then, sometimes they complain when I take a 4 hour lunch or when I'm too drunk and I can't talk coherently in meetings. What, like I'm supposed to be sober *and* work an 8 hour day???? I should just quit, I wonder if NASA would take me back. I'll have to make a mental note to contact my laywer to see if the restraining order has expired yet.I think the USA should just take back the Internet from all those foreigners who treat us with no respect. After all, we invented it, so we can pull the plug on it if we want. How do you like them apples, eh? And I don't want to hear you toads whine and piss and moan bacause you know it's true. Who invented ethernet? USA. Who invented the IC? USA. Who invented packets? USA. Hell, who invented the transistor? USA. Should I go on? Who invented the telephone system that most of you dorks use to get on the USAanet? That's right, the USA. Where is sillicon valley? It sure as heck isn't on that drafty little island called Engalnd..heh.. no, it's in the USA. Where do people have straight teeth? The USA. Where do people make food with flavor? The USA. Well, okay, so maybe the teeth and food thing has nothing to do with the USAanet, but you get the idea. We invented it and unless you slimeballs start to shape up we can take it all back.Chicks dig me.
