You Are An INTJ



The Scientist



You have a head for ideas - and you are good at improving systems.

Logical and strategic, you prefer for everything in your life to be organized.

You tend to be a bit skeptical. You're both critical of yourself and of others.

Independent and stubborn, you tend to only befriend those who are a lot like you.



In love, you are always striving to improve your relationship.

You have strong ideas of what love should be like.



At work, you excel in figuring out difficult tasks. People think of you as "the brain."

You would make an excellent scientist, engineer, or programmer.



How you see yourself: Reasonable, knowledgeable, and competent



When other people don't get you, they see you as: Aloof, controlling, and insensitive

I know you don't have time for long winded speeches, some of which can carry on for well over 3 MINUTES, but you need inspiration. The fine folks over at lifehacker have shown me just what we need:

Thanks to the election being over, I can finally go back to reading Digg!

Yes, my candidate lost. Yes, I fully expected that. No, I just couldn't vote for either of the socialists 99% of you did, but if yours is the one who won, could you politely ask him to keep his damned hands off my wallet and my freedom?

Since when does 'religious freedom' include listening to the radio at work?

This just in: gruinonism demands listening to "The Word". "The Word" can be discerned by listening to songs by The Ramones at 'resonable to me levels'.

In a pinch, I'm pretty sure Nine Inch Nails will also associate believers with "The Word".

And simply asking politely has yeilded no positive response.

There are a few things no one ever likes hearing me say. I, of course, can't imagine why.

I've said two of them in the past hour or so - "Uh oh" and the even more feared "I'm bored".

Nothing good comes from either of those expressions...

Wait 'til next year...


I'd also like to say that despite the occasion, it feels good to say it in October instead of June.

Spring training is a little more than 100 days away.

It's hockey season for real now. I'm listening to the Pens - Sens game and just heard Mike Lange bellow "You can shave my face with a rusty razor!" following a Malkin SH goal.

I've missed hockey, it really is the greatest game on Earth.

EDIT:
4-3 Penguins thanks to the OT goal by Kennedy. Pens only had 1 shot in the OT, and that's apparently all they needed.

If spending bills have to originate in the House, why would the Senate start the largest spending bill aside from the budget itself that I've ever heard of?

That seems remarkably backwards to me.

Having looked over reviews of the bill and its changes from the one that failed in the House earlier in the week, I see no way that this becoming law is a "good thing". As I see it, the government allowed these sub-prime securities to exist (actually forced them to exist, but that's another matter), then decided to buy these same securities once it was revealed they were valueless. Now I don't think the Federal government is well thought out in the first place, but who thought "being good stewards of the public trust" included securities that are known to have NO value and paying more than nothing for them?

Frankly, anyone who voted or votes for this doesn't want my vote this year or in any other year. I'll do my part to help them into their life of lobbying and running Fannie and Freddie (aka finding a way to screw the taxpayer from the private sector instead).

This is no rescue, this is one of the shared pillars of fascism, socialism, and communism. This is state ownership. If I loan money to someone who I know won't repay it, I'm forced to eat that loss. A bank is a corporate citizen in the eyes of the law, so equal protection should dictate that they have all the collection methods open to me, but not a $700 billion handout from taxpayer funds (as such things are NOT available to me - nor should they be).
