Hmmm…about these Emergency Exit Tools

Ok, I was reading my favorite gadget blog… should take a gander one day, and I came across this exit tool thing.  Offered here: Exit Tool Thngy Now at first I was like yoooo!!! this is so cool..I mean if i crash my car into the River..God forbid, i can pull out my little exit tool thingy and MacGyver my way out to safety.  Right?

Wrong!!!!!  Can someone please tell me an individual who is thinking logically enough to try to figure out how to use things while they are minutes away from being engulfed in water.  Seriously, now I guess you can do a trial run…you know like a kindergarden fire drill.  Remember those…..your teaching saying, “Everyone walk in a straight line….Don’t run children.”  Yeah like if the school is on fire we are going to walk in straight lines out to a safe point.   Ok…but I digress…back to the exit tool thingy.   The issue here is that you really don’t test these things out until you are actually faced with the situation.  I mean what are you going to do if it doesn’t work…call customer service as a your car fills with water and steadily drops to the bottom of the river?  Can you imagine….”Please Press 1 for english”  Hillarious

So I know what your saying…”HeCareth, do you have a better ideah?”

Yes I do, instead of trying to buy some fancy cutesy little tool that makes you think your all high tech and safe…and then find out at the most inopportune time that it doesn’t work.  I have a cheap simple way………are you ready.


Yep a pocket knife and a baseball bat.  So simple a child can use it…and guaranteed not to file in the time of need.  LOL!!!  Anyways people Until next time…..

Blackberry app for WordPress

Yessurb!! WordPress got a Blackberry app. Yes I know they have been having one since October, but hey I wasn’t blogging then. Plus the new version came out last month, so I’m not that late.

Anyway excuse any typos I am trying to test this thing out. Don’t mind the pic, just my monitor on my dirty desk.

Oh yeah here is the link to the app: WordPress Blackberry App

LA Traffic Sucks!!!

LA Traffic Courtesy of the LA Times

Ok, so I get up at 6am this morning to be in some city in the LA area for an all day meeting at 8:30.  I eft at 6:30 and go there 10 minutes late.  I swear I should be paid I mileage premium for sitting in traffic all day.

Ok, yes it is LA and the traffic here….well sucks, but geez man this is insane I got home at 6:30pm.  That means I officially spent 12 hours of a 24 hour day in which 8 is supposed to be spent sleeping out o the comfort of my own home.  I honestly feel for some of my fellow LA commuters which have to drive 60 miles or so each way just to make it to work.  They say I’m acting like a baby.  Well, guess what? I’m from Pittsburgh and even though we have our own share of traffic woes…It was never that bad.

However..and that’s a big “HOWEVER”  I will trade all this traffic in for no snow any day.  All that unnecessary cold stuff which pounded Steel City this year…yeah I don’t miss it.

So even though I will still always and forever despise this LA traffic, I will tryyy. to get used to it.  Ok I think that is enough of my random traffic rant…..till the next time.

I’m Back……

Ok, decided to comeback to the blogosphere and do something usefull with my time instead of posting random shouts of nothings into to social networking cloud we call Facebook and Twitter.

Wow! It’s been a while sice I started this thing for a class.  Now I’m married living on the other side of the country, and just ejoying life.  What can I say.

More to come, stay tuned….

The things you do will always catchup with you in the end. Whether good or bad, what you do will always effect what you get in return. It’s the way it is and it will always be the way it works. The only thing we can do is go on, live with the rewards or consequences, and move on. Can’t dwell on what has been done, because its done and finished, and there is something which comes next. Progress is key, one must continue moving. Fix what can be repaired and invest what we have earned. Live and learn, keep what you have done right, and lose what you have done wrong.

Life comes at you in very interesting ways, but in the end you learn to live with what is tossed at you. The storm maybe heavy now, but it will not always be, the sun will shine again, and you will be ready for the next storm which lies ahead. I cannot dwell on that which is lost or regret the reasons why it is gone, but to cherish what is still there, and to build upon what is still left. What I have lost another will find, and I hope they love and cherish it as much as I did. It was a beautiful thing, but the show must go on.

To all my peoples…I love you all to death. You guys are great. But to my 3 first loves, you are my are the reason I am me. I may no show it, but without you a part of me would be gone. Life begins with family, and family begins with you. Eliada, Emi, and Chidi…Love you much.

Attention Fellas!!: Beware of the Smut (Yeah I said it!!!)

Now I know some folks may have read Chidi’s note on the Nice Guy, and you haven’t I suggest you do…but, what about the guys. Is there anything we need to watch out for?

YESSSS!!!! The Smut. Now you may ask, “HeCareth what the hell is a smut?” And I would explain this to you to the best of my ability. First off let me give credit where credit is due…to Ronald White…piano player extraordinare. who enlightened my vocabulary with the ever so useful adjective, “Smut.” and I digress

A Smut in this sense is a higher level Slut, someone that all dudes should be aware of. You see, unlike the slut the smut is very undercover and comes off as a very sweat girl, which any dude will love to date. She is not a Slut, because it is not public information that she gets around. Which is why smuts are smuts, they know how to keep things generally under wrap. The truth of the matter is that she is an undercover slut, don’t get it conscrewed.

“The Obvious Smut”
First off, dudes, no female with class is going to chase you. That is not the way things work. Yes she might leave clues, and little flirts here or there to draw you in, but she will not out rightly come after. Some of you guys think you some Playa status because you got all these little girls come after like you a movie star. Ummmmm….no. Think about it, if you can get her that quick…so can everyone else. Soooo….she just might… a Smut.

“Smut By Association”
The term birds of a feather flock together, comes into to play here. Smuts role together. It’s like their they’re to back each other up when their conscience whispers in their ear, “You know….your s smut.” That means for all you nice, lovely, ladies..who happen to have a smut or 2 in your need to be weary that their smutness does not rub off on you. Yeah, stop taken advice from Smuts. ITS NOT GOOD ADVICE!!! Honestly if a guy sees that one is a Smut, he is automatically going to think that whoever hangs out with her is just as easy. And if the smut just happens to be the more powerful influential one…well…..hey….she may not be smut…but she may have smut tendencies.

“Good Girl Gone Smut”
Now we get to the worst type of Smut. Yeah she was nice before but then she came across the “Good Guy”. And yes she was this Good Guys “Creep” (reference Chidi’s not for more information). Sooo what do you expect. She mad man….she very mad, because guess what? She was on Creep status….so yeah….she never got the dude. She got played. So the playee becomes the player. First off she don’t care about your feelings, the nice guy snatched that away before you got to her. She will use you, abuse you, and lose you…and in the meantime make you feel like you’re King Kong. You must remember that she used to be Good Girl so she knows how good girls are supposed to act. She also had to deal with a Nice Guy, so she knows how to read guys…very well. Most of the time you only find out home girl was a smut because she messed with some dude a little bit too close to your circle. First off you can tell because she lets get away with a little too much, meaning you are not that why get angry. Also check her friends…smuts tend to have bookoo male friends and very little female friends…like one, and she probably is a smut too. These females tend to lose many female friends because of their smutty ways..i.e “You slept with my boyfriend!!! How could you” Finally, if your boys really can’t give you an opinion of your girl, any opinion like, “Yeah..she’s nice.” or even “I don’t like your girl”, and they tell you something along the lines of, “Well, I don’t know, she’s your girl.” hmmm…welll….she might be a smut.

In the end, all I can say is fellas…leave the Smuts for the “Nice Guys”, they will get along just fine playing with each others emotions.

The Yes, No, Maybe Theory by HeCareth M. Wosu

By HeCareth M Wosu
Sometime in 2003

Male and Female interaction in regards to courting each other is interesting. To say the least I sometimes wonder how two certain people got together. I mean seriously have you ever wondered how even you hooked up with your so called significant other. Well in the end the conversation becomes circular and you always end up where you started, “I don’t know”

Anyway through some of my crazy ideas and thoughts and through observing friends, family members, and acquaintances go in and out of relationships, I came up with my own theory to one question that sometimes boggles my mind, “How did that happen?” Which my baby sister wrote a poem on that some may have heard. Prop’s you little Nugget.

Yes, No, Maybe….To the fellas, just because you always seem to get whatever girl you talk to does not necessarily mean you got game for days. You may not be that fly. The difference is you just have a better idea of where you stand with that female. And so I explain.

It starts like this, when girls and guys are in a social setting i.e. party or get together, everyone is always noticing everybody else. Guys are basically thinking in their head what girl is my target for tonight. To us it is not that complicated we go with a “Divide and Conquer” approach. Now for the ladies I feel it is different. Girls observe and notice guys and basically put labels on every guy in the room. A yes guy, a no guy, or a maybe guy. Let me explain further.

Some of us have the pleasure of always talking to the girl that regards us as a “Yes Guy.” So what does that mean? It means that when you speak to this female it’s not about what you said. She already decided she will go out or entertain you no matter what foolishness came out of your mouth. She was waiting for you to come to talk to her. In her mind she already knew that you may say something silly or you may say something beautiful, but it didn’t matter. If you asked her out, she will say yes. The only thing you really had to do was say, “Hey, want to go out?” Your job is done.

Then some of us have the bad luck of running into that girl that regards us as a “No Guy.” This is where those of us who think we are Super Pimps come back to reality. It is the exact opposite of the yes guy. You can say the sweetest thing imaginable that will pull almost any girl, but she will still tell you no. Why? Because before you walked up to her she noticed you and decided that for some reason or another she is not and will never be interested in you. So you coming to speak to her is just…well, hot air.

Now the maybe guy. By now you have figured this one out. When a girl labels a guy as maybe it means what you say can either make you or embarrass you. The difference between the maybe guy and the rest, is that how far you get is dependent on what you say or do.

The key is in the end, we never have the control. The final decision is always on the females end. No matter what you think went down, you only got as far as she let you. How’s that for an ego buster. Sucks huh?

This is for my 3 sisters who forever remind me that I will never understand ladies, and to every single girl I have been with or who completely embarrassed me. And to my boy Aaron, my always unknowing research subject for the past 6 years, LOL. You made this theory possible.
