Women are Powerless

All across Facebook, WordPress and just about any other social media/blogging sites I see them over and over. Post after post about the power of women. “Man gets owned by female ju-jitsu fighter”, “Time to celebrate the power of women in the workplace”, blah, blah, blah.

I wonder if anyone realizes that if men decided to take it all back, all the “power” that women have, women would be powerless to stop them. In the blink of an eye women would go from having it all to having nothing. Don’t believe me? Just look at the Middle East. If women have such power, why are they still in such subjugation in those countries? Why hasn’t “the power of women” saved them from honor killings, or beatings or being raped?

I certainly don’t wish this upon society, but I do think women need an awakening as to THEIR privilege. To the benefits they enjoy from living in a male built society where they are afforded security and opportunity. Where men keep them from being subjugated, hell, where men even keep them from paying the consequences of their actions!

We all know this won’t happen, though.

Final Fantasy Friday XIX

For today’s Final Fantasy Friday you get to look upon the Curtana V2 I finished up this week. Well, its 99.9% done, I just need to add one detail I forgot, but I can’t do that until tomorrow.

48″ long x 9.25″ wide, made of both 3/4″ and 1/4″ poplar wood. Spray painted, coated with triple thick glaze with a paracord wrapped handle, she’s pretty hefty, but oh so fun to swing around. You had better have a strong wrist if you just want to hold her, though.

The little chocobo was purchased from a nice girl on Facebook. Worth every penny.


Week in Review (April 23-29)

Whew, what a busy week despite not having much to do! Did some travel for work, which is always interesting, but also spent a lot of time in the office doing squat. We have some programmable controllers that are not acting right and it is preventing our customer from using their control system the way they are supposed to. I have spent far too many hours troubleshooting, changing the program, troubleshooting, changing the program. At this point I think its a firmware issue that is messing up the sending of data from one device to another, and I don’t think its something we can fix.

Week in Review (April 16-22)

A lot of travel last week for work, but it was all good as it gave me some extra hours on my time card! Got to listen to some Greg Laurie and Captain Capitalism during the hours on the road (talk about polar opposites, but both are good listening). Had some rain at one job site that left everything drenched and muddy. The dirt out on some of the job sites is super, super fine, almost like baby powder. When it gets wet it sticks to the bottom of your boots like dough, sometimes an inch thick! Since your out in the middle of nowhere there isn’t really a way to get it off, either.
