Even Joey seems to have wasted three years of his life... maybe I should start him on harpsicord lessons?

Screw You! (1)

I've been sitting here all morning staring at lists of ODBC error codes trying to tie the meaningless gibberish strings SQL Server spits out to Enterprise Manager to the actually useful codes my application will be seeing, and now this.

As if I weren't depressed enough already about my life, you just had to kick a guy while he was down. At my age, Orson Welles was terrifying millions of simple folk, and I'm staring at "Integrity Constraint Violation" and translating it to "SQLSTATE" codes.

I'm going home, and I'm going back to bed, and I'm never getting out again.

And this will cause you to accomplish more, and thus compare better to those people in this list, HOW?

  • "You're all worthless and weak! Now drop and give me twenty!"
Wow, I haven't thought of that specific song in a little while. Although, Dee Snyder is supposedly a successful radio personality up in Connecticut now??? He was on the air in Richmond for a little bit a couple of years ago.

I was actually talking about the movie, not the song.

Very interesting that you and Ab picked up on that aspect of it.

When you said "you are all worthless", you didn't mean me, right?

nonsense (1)

SolemnDragon (593956) | more than 9 years ago | (#12566809)

I have, by my age:

written more than two dozen short stories which more than two people who Are Not My Mum actually liked;

written more than two hundred poems which pass the same criteria;

painted three paintings which are hanging in Someone Else's Home, framed and matted;

rescued 1 kitten from crippling circumstances and given her a happy life;

tipped waitstaff more than 7000 times (i don't get out much);

taken care of 3 children for more than 1 year each;

written more than 36 songs;

written to my congresscritters more than 24 times;

participated in 2 national postcard drives, one of which i helped organise;

lost seven shoes;

eaten more than my weight in chocolate;

had 4 online websites (yes, four).

I may have wasted time, but i've wasted it GLORIOUSLY!!!

I would add that you might consider Tom lehrer's comment about Mozart: "It is a sobering thought that, when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for two years."

mekkab (133181) | more than 9 years ago | (#12566982)

and GBTW- and I mean all of you!

Re:STFU (1)

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 9 years ago | (#12567232)

I agree. Mekka, I need to see you in my office.

The rest of you, coffee break is over. Get back to work.

Re:STFU (1)

mekkab (133181) | more than 9 years ago | (#12567329)

lemme guess; "you've done some good work at this company, Mekka. I see great things ahead of you. And by 'great', I mean 'in about 6 seconds these security guards are going to forcibly escort you from the building.' You might want to polish up your resume. And for the record, we know about the pens."

Something like that?

Re:STFU (1)

Em Emalb (452530) | more than 9 years ago | (#12567371)

No, nothing like that.

More of a "Mekka, thanks for polishing this turd as well as you have, however, the sand paper you are using is too gritty. Keep up the good work. Oh, and get me some coffee, two sugars, 1 cream. Thanks."

Worthless, eh? (1)

btlzu2 (99039) | more than 9 years ago | (#12567801)


Did you ever look at my resume there FK? :) I sent it about 2 years ago!

Wow.. (1)

I know I've wasted my life when I see this:

Conceptual artist Piero Manzoni crapped in 90 small cans which were then factory sealed and offered for sale at the price of gold.

Age Negative Fifty (1)

LPetrazickis (557952) | more than 9 years ago | (#12568379)

At age 0:

Jesus Christ was born of a virgin.
Hah! As far as I know, my mother is also a virgin.
(Baby) Evans, daughter of Mrs. T.W. Evans, became the first child to be born in an airplane. The first children to be born in a car, covered wagon, boat, etc., were also born at this age.

By eight weeks of age, Christian Friedrich Heinecken was speaking intelligible German. Many children can't even speak English at that age.

At six months of age, William J. Sidis, Jr., the son of a psychiatrist, knew the alphabet.

At nine months, the American actress Maude Adams first appeared on stage. She later played the title role in Peter Pan.

At ten months, Mary Stuart was crowned Queen of Scots.

Before he was one year old, Leonard Bernstein played his first piano note. He appeared to enjoy the note very much.
Well, flibbertigibbet my rear and call me Bob, but I don't think much of these prodigies.:)
