Computer Viruses: Random or Planned?

Computer Viruses: Random or Planned?

Ever wonder how computers get viruses? You know what I am talking about, those annoying little bugs that slow or even crash your computer! Ever wonder where they came from, or even who had the audacity to make them? Microsoft has been dealing with these “viruses” for years now; ever wonder why Apple has none? What if Apple had published these viruses to annoy PC users, like many of us are, so much that it pushed people into buying a Mac.

They Make Me Feel Insecure

They Make Me Feel Insecure

I, like many other teenage girls, have a subscription to Seventeen magazine. I love the great information it has about health, fashion, and boys (<3), but lately I’ve been increasingly upset by the appearance of the stick-thin models that grace the pages of ads and fashion pages. Most girls probably don’t even think about it, but to me, putting bony, lanky women with seemingly “perfect” bodies in magazines is a big mistake. To me, its no worse than subliminal messaging. An ordinary, overweight girl such as myself will look at the outfit the woman is wearing and that might be the end of it. But you can’t look at the outfit without looking at the model. The image, much like a subliminal message, has been put into your mind, and you didn’t even realize it.

Video Game Overload

Video Game Overload

Ever heard the term ‘he broke her heart, she broke his Xbox’? Have you ever gotten frustrated with someone (usually a guy) who spends so much time on the Xbox or Playstation? It’s great that it can be played live with friends, but it just sucks away your life. People spend hours after school and into the night playing, then complain the next day about not getting enough sleep. Go figure? It seems these are the latest trends to distracting yourself or an addiction. Mindless amount of controls, same terrains over and over, brain cells melting away. I say this is worse than watching hours of TV. Maybe then you could get a hold of your Xbox junky friend for once.

I hate traffic!

I hate traffic!

In San Antonio, Texas there are about two million people. So you would think there would be a system fit for a large city like that, right? No, they don’t have a good traffic system in San Antonio, Texas. In Texas there are lights for the people turning out of neighborhoods, which is good. Unless the lights are timed and there are about a few hundred cars piled up for absolutely nobody to come out of the stupid neighborhood!

Tiger deserves the beating from wife, not us.

Tiger deserves the beating from wife, not us.

I think everyone knows the predicament with Tiger Woods, his life was falling apart completely. What is weird about this is that nobody even knew, until he ran into a tree. He could have cheated on his wife for 5 more years and without hitting the tree nobody would have ever known. If I was Tiger I’d start a logging company to avoid it from happening again, because that is by far the worst part of his career and probably social life.

First day back.

First day back.

So Im sitting here in my spanish class after completing a riviting assigment given to me and I find myself morning the loss of our spring break to a much higher extent than predicted. Although I didn’t do that much during this springbreak, I enjoyed my week off. I slept in till about twelve o’clock every day, took a shower, and either went outside to endure physical activity or stayed home doing virtually nothing.

To Pay or Not to Pay?

To Pay or Not to Pay?

In the world of music, buying songs online is a huge thing. With the buying of CDs in stores in decline because of monster companies like iTunes and Rhapsody, more and more musicians have become more reliant on the sales of their songs online. However, with the rise of pirating, musicians are making less money and aren’t as fabuously wealthy as it was once thought they were. Limewire, the Pirate Bay, and Music Lemon are just a few of the hundreds of pirate sites where free music can be found.

Just me?

Just me?

You ever see those people that are obviously handling a situation the wrong way? You restrain yourself from saying something just to be nice, but you really wish for some god given reason they would ask for your opinion on the matter. At which point you would explain their idiocy to them in a manner of your choosing.

I have, like those parents that have obviously let their kid grow up to be a brat, the dumb ass boyfriend or girlfriend that wouldn’t know a good relationship if it sat on their face, or those people that actually liked George Bush.
