The White House Office of National Drug Policy says...

WHITE HOUSE A White House report says teenage girls are more likely to abuse prescription drugs than teenage boys.

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy says almost one in ten teenage girls reported using a prescription drug at least once in the past year to get high. Typically, they abuse antidepressants and tranquilizers.

Among teenage boys, the rate was about one out of 13. Teenage boys are much more likely to use illicit drugs like marijuana and cocaine.

Federal officials think the abuse of prescription drugs by teenage girls may be related to the unique pressures they face. They often use them to increase confidence, reduce tension, or lose weight. (But that in no way will reduce our efforts to incarcerate them.)

Men typically abuse drugs and alcohol for the sensation. (Men face no unique pressures.) (Men don't want to increase confidence, reduce tension or lose weight.)

Jane Says

This song has been playing in my head the last few days thought this might get it out, or make it worse, at least it's a song I like.

Moon Juice

I use to know some guys from Texas, they were always bringing up bottles of blue glowing stuff they called it Moon Juice, good shit!

One Cheetos Frilly Pie Please!

Ever had a Cheetos frilly pie? Me neither but I ordered one yesterday. The girl I ordered it from thought it was funny, I was torn between laughing at myself and concern for the shrinking number of brain cells that I have to work with. Of Course I meant to order a Frito's chili pie but had to settle for a Frito's chili wrap. It just wasn't the same, all the cheese ran to the bottom. And in the cheese at the bottom was a HUMAN FINGER! It was mine! It kind of poked through the soggy bottom of the paper. Speaking of Soggy Bottoms...

Boomtown Rats "I don't Like Mondays" (1979)

On 29 January 1979, 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer opened fire on children arriving at Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego from her house across the street, killing two men and wounding eight students and a police officer. Principal Burton Wragg was attempting to rescue children in the line of fire when he was shot and killed, and custodian Mike Suchar was slain attempting to aid Wragg.

Spencer used a rifle her father had given her as a gift. As to what impelled her into this form of murderous madness, she told a reporter,''I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day.''

The "Mondays" comment was not the only eyebrow-raising declaration to issue from Spencer that day. According to a report written by the police negotiators who spoke with her during the six-hour standoff, she made such comments to them as ''There was no reason for it, and it was just a lot of fun''; ''It was just like shooting ducks in a pond''; and ''[the children ] looked like a herd of cows standing around, it was really easy pickings.''

That Spencer failed to kill any of the children she shot at was attributable to luck rather than any reluctance on her part to take their lives. The bullet that struck 9-year-old Charles "Cam" Miller missed his heart by about an inch.

Spencer pled guilty to two counts of murder and assault with a deadly weapon and was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. She has been up for parole four times and has been turned down each time, the last in 2005. At her first parole hearing she expressed doubt that any of the victims were hit by bullets from her rifle and contended they might have been shot by police. She also claimed to have been under the influence of alcohol and hallucinogenic drugs at the time of the shootings and asserted prosecutors and her attorney had conspired to fabricate test evidence showing there had been no drugs in her system. By her third parole hearing she was admitting guilt and expressing remorse but was still contending she had been drunk and high on marijuana laced with PCP the day of her deadly rampage. She also claimed something new, that she had been beaten and sexually abused by her father, an avowal conspicuously absent from previous records.

She is eligible to again apply for parole in 2009. Those who continue to be troubled by the callousness of Brenda Spencer's crime and concerned by her continued attempts to shift blame for her actions onto anyone or anything else can draw comfort from the knowledge that murderers are rarely granted parole in California.

Dumb Laws in Oklahoma

One may not promote a "horse tripping event".

It is illegal for the owner of a bar to allow anyone inside to pretend to have sex with a buffalo. (The word PRETEND is a giant loophole in this law.)

Females are forbidden from doing their own hair without being licensed by the state.

Dogs must have a permit signed by the mayor in order to congregate in groups of three or more on private property.

Oklahoma will not tolerate anyone taking a bite out of another's hamburger.

It is against the law to read a comic book while operating a motor vehicle.

Whaling is illegal. (I guess this law was passed too late, there are no longer any whales in Oklahoma.)

It is illegal to have the hind legs of farm animals in your boots. (They made a movie about this, "The man who loved Sheep Dancing")

Residents are taxed for the furniture in their homes, and any other personal belongings. (Not that I know of.)

People who make "ugly faces" at dogs may be fined and/or jailed. (They almost got me for this law but I finaly convinced them that I look like this all of the time!)

Cars must be tethered outside of public buildings.

Oral sex is a misdemeanor and is punisable by one year in jail and a $2,500 fine.(Always check Federal, State and Local laws before sex.)

Anyone arrested for soliciting a hooker must have their name and picture shown on television. (My 15 minutes of fame.)

It's statutory rape for a man over 18 to have sex with a female under the age of 18, provided she's a virgin.

Tattoos are banned. (Not any more, Oklahoma, leading the way! 50th state to legalize tatooing.)
No one may spit on a sidewalk.

It is illegal to wear your boots to bed.

It is illegal to have sex before you are married.

Fish may not be contained in fishbowls while on a public bus.

A sixpack of beer must be put in a sack before it leaves the store but a twelve pack does not have to be. (Not sure about eightpacks, kind of a gray area.)

Tissues are not to be found in the back of one's car.

Auto Insurance & Gun Rights?

WARNING: RATED RM-70 (Real Mature)- Must be 70 years old or older to view this video.

After viewing this video, the auto insurance industry has teamed up with gun rights advocates in an effort to reduce damage done by insane street people. The NRA estimates that damage to this car could have been reduced by $3000-$9000 had the driver been armed.

Killeen, Tex., 1991

It was October 1991 when an unemployed merchant seaman drove his pickup truck into a Luby's cafeteria in Killeen, Tex., leaped out and opened fire. He killed 23 people and wounded more than 20.

Hupp and her parents were having lunch in the restaurant when the shooting started. Hupp instinctively reached into her purse for her .38-caliber Smith & Wesson, but she had left it in the car. Her father tried to rush the gunman and was shot in the chest. As the gunman reloaded, Hupp escaped through a broken window, thinking her
mother was behind her.

But Hupp's mother had crawled alongside her dying husband of 47 years to cushion his head in her lap. Police later told Hupp they saw her mother look up at the gunman standing over her, then bow down before he shot her in the head.

"I'd like people to think about what happened to me, and try to place themselves in that situation," Hupp said yesterday between a string of interviews in which she relived the tragedy as Exhibit A in her argument against restrictive gun laws. "Now, instead of thinking of their parents, have it be their children.

"Even if you choose not to have a gun, as the bad guy who ignored all the laws is getting close to you and as he levels that firearm at one of your children, don't you hope the person next to you has chosen to carry a gun and knows how to use it?"

I don't want to know!

Ever see those warning labels that say something like "It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner that is inconsistent with labeling"? I don't know about you, but my mind immediately says "You can use this shit for something else!" "I wonder what it is. I wonder why they don't want you to do it."
But some things are best not pursued. Kind of like a couple of years ago an inmate at work was remembering the good ol' days when he cooked meth. He said with great anticipation, "I can teach you how." (I ran that scenario through my mind real quick, I wound up as his cell mate!) "Thanks anyway man, there are some thing you're just better off not knowing." He shrugged his shoulders, grinned and said
"Can't argue with that."

"I could see the steer lying on his back."

California firefighters, police, and veterinarians worked through the night on Saturday to save a steer caught up in a traffic accident.

The trailer the steer was riding in was mangled in the accident, leaving the animal trapped inside.

Laura Blanton was one of the rescuers.

"I could see the steer lying on his back with legs tangled and the dividing gates of trailer and head in the feeder department in the front of the trailer so there was no way to get out without removing the top of the trailer."

The vets tranquilized the 1500 pound steer to keep him calm during the complicated rescue.

Crews had to cut the top of the trailer...then it took five firefighters to pull the steer to the roadway.

"This is one of those special calls you'll probably remember till you retire, probably till the day you die hopefully you made the difference in life of a steer and you don't get to say that very often," says Battalion Chief Matt Moore.

Veterinarians say its amazing the the steer survived the crash.

The steer was loaded into another trailer which made it safely to the slaughter house.
To show his appreciation, the steers owner sent ten pounds of steaks to the rescuers.
The steer was last reported to be delicious.

I wonder if something bad (on a large scale) is going to happen on 4-11-07. I'm probably just mixing up the okc bombing 4-19 and 9-11 into 4-11. The other day someone said they had to do something on 4-11 and I almost said "4-11? You picked quite a day for that." Kind of like it was an infamous date. Hopefully just a brain fart.

Who said that?

I shouldn't confess this to anyone but I'm feelin' stoopid. I walked into the men's room the other day, (I was the only one there) looked in the mirror and said "Man, my hair looks like shit." which was just a normal thing for me. But unexpectedly, a Scottish accent came out of my mouth and said "And you talk to yourself too!" I guess you could say I cracked myself up because I started laughing out loud. I honestly surprised myself. Hey, I never said mental health was my strong point!


When you get your drivers license, they tell you that it's a privilege and if you are wise and obey the traffic laws you will get to keep your license. But if you are foolish and repeatedly make poor choices you will probably loose your license.
What if voting was like that? You get to the polls... A tall lean man with a beard and a New England accent reviews your voting record. (The New England accent strikes you as odd since you're in Southern Oklahoma but you're afraid it will lead to a long conversation that you'd just as soon not be in so you don't say anything about it, or the smell of shrimp that is now assaulting your sinuses) "Says here you voted for Bush, twice, he's really made a mess of things, one more strike and your voting license will be suspended, choose wisely."

Hot Dog!

Bob and I aren't use to the heat yet. I was cutting branches and pulling them to the fence. Bob was enjoying the damp soil, easy diggin'. After about 45 minutes in the lower 80's weather and we were both burning up. We had to take a water break. This would have seemed like a cool day last summer, just takes time to get re-acclimated I guess. Bob also wears himself out on a rope tied to a tree, he plays tug of war with it. It's a big tree but I keep thinking someday I'll come home to find him dragging it around the yard!
