Posted on January 30th, 2009 in funny email forwards, you think you’re having a bad day | 1 Comment »
If you don’t laugh out loud after you read this you are in a coma! This is even funnier when you realize it’s real! Next time you have a bad day at work think of this guy.
Rob is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana . He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs.
Below is an E-mail he sent to his sister. She then sent it to radio station 103.2 FM in Ft. Wayne , Indiana , who was sponsoring a worst job experience contest. Needless to say, she won.
Just another note from your bottom-dwelling brother.
Last week I had a bad day at the office. I know you’ve been feeling down lately at work, so I thought I would share my dilemma with you to make you realize it’s not so bad after all .
Before I can tell you what happened to me, I first must bore you with a few technicalities of my job.
As you know, my office lies at the bottom of the sea. I wear a suit to the office. It’s a wet suit. This time of year the water is quite cool. So what we do to keep warm is this: We have a diesel powered industrial water heater. This $20,000 piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea. It heats it to a delightful temperature.
It then pumps it down to the diver through a garden hose, which is taped to the air hose. Now this sounds like a darn good plan, and I’ve used it several times with no complaints.
What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the hose and stuff it down the back of my wet suit. This floods my whole suit with warm water. It’s like working in a Jacuzzi.
Everything was going well until all of a sudden, my butt started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This only made things worse. Within a few seconds my butt started to burn. I pulled the hose out from my back, but the damage was done. In agony I realized what had happened.
The hot water machine had sucked up a jellyfish and pumped it into my suit. Now, since I don’t have any hair on my back, the jellyfish couldn’t stick to it However, the crack of my butt was not as fortunate.
When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my butt.
I informed the dive supervisor of my dilemma over the communicator. His instructions were unclear due to the fact that he, along with five other divers, were all laughing hysterically.
Needless to say I aborted the dive. I was instructed to make three agonizing in-water decompression stops totaling thirty-five minutes before I could reach the surface to begin my chamber dry decompression. When I arrived at the surface, I was wearing nothing but my brass helmet.
As I climbed out of the water, the medic, with tears of laughter running down his face, handed me a tube of cream and told me to rub it on my butt as soon as I got in the chamber.
The cream put the fire out, but I couldn’t poop for two days because my butt was swollen shut.
So, next time you’re having a bad day at work, think about how much worse it would be if you had a jellyfish shoved up your butt.
Now repeat to yourself, “I l ove my job, I love my job, I love my job.”
Now whenever you have a bad day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad day?
May you NEVER have a jellyfish bad day!!!!

Seventy-five percent of the apples sold in New York City come from the West Coast or overseas, even though the state produces far more apples than city residents consume, according to author Bill McKibben.
When food travels, it faces more risks such as spoilage and contamination, and creates a larger carbon footprint. And that’s just part of the problem. In the U.S. alone $48 billion worth of food is thrown away and we experience 76 million cases of food borne illnesses each year.
Building a smarter system can help deliver more safe food to all. There’s much we can do if we focus on this issue. Sometimes, bringing broad awareness to a serious problem requires a little humor.

I would like to publically thank Dargon/Tera-Alpha Media (Ravi) for designing our header image (look at the top of the screen) and we would like to urge our visitors to check out his blog.
My bro Ravi made some OniGiri (Basically Japanese Rice balls) the other day and totally kicked my ass. I made some and they tasted good but was horrible looking and fell apart. His look like they are supposed to and he even did a nice presentation. By the way, the little white round thingies are pickled onions (cocktail onions). The sauces at the front that you can’t see very well are (left) Duck Sauce and (right) Hoisin sauce.
Go here to see his results (with images). Sorry I didn’t photograph mine, they were too ugly. The image in this post is HIS OniGiri.
Recently I decided to go for it and learn Japanese. I found a nice resource on the net of some dude who went to a basic Japanese language course and noted what happened. This will allow people like me to see what should be done at different stages of learning. It’s very simple to find resources on the net to learn Japanese, use Google.
Anyway, I am currently practicing writing Hiragana. This takes time but is needed.
Btw, here is the Learn Japanese in 20 weeks page I spoke of.

1 The pharmaceutical industry is an investment industry driven by the profits of its shareholders. Improving human health is not the driving force of this industry.
2 The pharmaceutical investment industry was artificially created and strategically developed over an entire century by the same investment groups that control the global petrochemical and chemical industries.
3 The huge profits of the pharmaceutical industry are based on the patenting of new drugs. These patents essentially allow drug manufacturers to arbitrarily define the profits for their products.
4 The marketplace for the pharmaceutical industry is the human body – but only for as long as the body hosts diseases. Thus, maintaining and expanding diseases is a precondition for the growth of the pharmaceutical industry.
5 A key strategy to accomplish this goal is the development of drugs that merely mask symptoms while avoiding the curing or elimination of diseases.
This explains why most prescription drugs marketed today have no proven efficacy and merely target symptoms.
6 To further expand their pharmaceutical market, the drug companies are continuously looking for new applications (indications) for the use of drugs they already market. For example, Bayer’s pain pill Aspirin is now taken by 50 million healthy US citizens under the illusion it will prevent heart attacks.
7 Another key strategy to expand pharmaceutical markets is to cause new diseases with drugs. While merely masking symptoms short term, most of the prescription drugs taken by millions of patients today cause a multitude of new diseases as a result of their known long-term side effects. For example, all cholesterol-lowering drugs currently on the market are known to increase the risk of developing cancer – but only after the patient has been taking
the drug for several years.
8 The known deadly side effects of prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death in the industrialized world, surpassed only by the number of deaths from heart attacks, cancer and strokes (Journal of the American Medical Association,April 15, 1998). This fact is no surprise either, because drug patents are primarily issued for new synthetic molecules.
All synthetic molecules need to be detoxified and eliminated from the body, a system that frequently fails and results in an epidemic of severe and deadly side effects.
9 While the promotion and expansion of diseases increase the market of the pharmaceutical investment industry - prevention and root cause treatment of diseases decrease long-term profitability; therefore, they are avoided or even obstructed by this industry.
10 Worst of all, the eradication of diseases is by its very nature incompatible with and diametrically opposed to the interests of the pharmaceutical investment industry. The eradication of diseases now considered as potential drug markets will destroy billions of investment dollars and eventually will eliminate this entire industry.
11 Vitamins and other effective natural health therapies that optimize cellular metabolism threaten the pharmaceutical “business with disease” because they target the cellular cause of today’s most common diseases - and these natural substances cannot be patented.
12 Throughout the more than one hundred year existence of the pharmaceutical industry, vitamins and other essential nutrients, with defined functions as cofactors in cellular metabolism, have been the fiercest competition and the greatest threat to the long-term success of the pharmaceutical investment business.
13 Vitamins and other effective natural health therapies that effectively prevent diseases are incompatible with the very nature of the pharmaceutical “business with disease.”
14 To protect the strategic development of its investment business against the threat from effective, natural and non-patentable therapies, the pharmaceutical industry has – over an entire century - used the most unscrupulous methods, such as:
(1) Withholding life-saving health information from millions of people.
It is simply unacceptable that today so few know that the human body cannot produce vitamin C and lysine, two key molecules for connective tissue stability and disease prevention.
(2) Discrediting natural health therapies. The most common way is through global PR campaigns organized by the Pharma-Cartel that spread lies about the alleged side effects of natural substances – molecules that have been used by Nature for millennia.
(3) Banning by law the dissemination of information about natural health therapies. To that end, the pharmaceutical industry has placed its lobbyists in key political positions in key markets and leading drug export nations.
15 The pharmaceutical “business with disease” is the largest deception and fraud business in human history. The product “health” promised by drug companies is not delivered to millions of patients. Instead, the “products” most often delivered are the opposite: new diseases and frequently, death.
16) The survival of the pharmaceutical industry is dependent on the elimination by any means of effective natural health therapies. These natural and non-patentable therapies have become the treatment of choice for millions of people despite the combined economic, political and media opposition of the world’s largest investment industry.

It seems to me that many people are scared of or scared to see bare feet. Why is this? You go barefoot to a local store and everyone stares at you like you’re some kind of freak. Sometimes you will get comments like “Why aren’t you wearing shoes?” or “You should be wearing shoes.” and sometimes you may even get mean remarks that I wont bring up here.
I want to know why is there such hatred of the bare foot. People who go barefoot a lot keep their feet clean and well maintained. The feet of those who barefoot may look dirty but the feet that are inside shoes all day are FAR dirtier. There are a huge number of germs and bacteria INSIDE of your shoes. Shoes are the perfect environment for bacteria growth and almost nobody ever washes their shoes.
The bare foot however stays dry and is cleaned every day (assuming the person washes themselves daily.. which everyone should). As long as feet are cleaned upon entering your home (equivalent to removing your shoes and socks then cleaning your feet) then you will never track in anything. Just taking off shoes without removing socks and cleaning feet will STILL track in bacteria!
The foot is amazingly tough also. I have been going barefoot a lot over the past couple of years and I can walk on gravel without issue, yet I can feel each pebble. I clean my feet every day with hot soapy water and a boar bristle brush. My feet are cleaner than virtually any shod feet.
Point is, people should not be scared of or scared to see or hate bare feet. I say that if a business doesn’t want barefoot customers, then they don’t want my business then.
If you are interested in learning more about barefeet and barefooting then check out the following links. They are well worth a read even if you never go barefoot.
