Hire This Man!  
This is an actual job application that a 75 year old senior citizen submitted to Walmart in Arkansas. They hired him because he was so funny.....  
- NAME:Kenneth Way (Grumpy Old Bastard)  
- SEX: Not lately, but I am looking for the right woman (or at least one who will cooperate)  
- DESIRED POSITION: Company's President or Vice President. But seriously,what ever is available.. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn't be applying here in the first place.  
- DESIRED SALARY: $185,000 a year plus stock options and a Michael Ovitzstyle severance package. If that's not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.  
- LAST POSITION HELD: Target for middle management hostility.  
- PREVIOUS SALARY: A lot less than I'm worth.  
- MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.  
- REASON FOR LEAVING: It sucked.  
- PREFERRED HOURS: 1:30-3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.  
- DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS ?: Yes, but they're better suited to a more intimate environment .  
- MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER ?: If I had one, would I be here ?  
- DO YOU HAVE A CAR ?: I think the more appropriate question here would be 'Do you have a car that runs ?'  
- HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITION ?: I may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, so they tell me.  
- DO YOU SMOKE ?: On the job - no !  
On my breaks - yes !  
- WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS ?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb sexy blonde supermodel who thinks I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread.  
Actually, I'd like to be doing that now.  
- NEAREST RELATIVE .....7 miles  
Oh yes, absolutely.***Old People Rock! ***

Preying --- It's good for the soul
Posted by kid-ney 14 years ago
An atheist was walking through the woods one day. "What majestic trees! What powerful rivers!What beautiful animals!" he said to himself. As he was walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7 foot bear charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him.He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him. At that instant the atheist cried out:"Oh my God...!"
Time stopped. The bear froze.The forest was silent. As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky: "You deny my existence for all of these years, teach others I don't exist, and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"
The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps could You make the BEAR a Christian?" "Very well," said the voice.  
The light went out. The sounds of the forest returned. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together and bowed his head and spoke: "Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen"

Beaglebot's Entirely Unofficial UnFaq  
Journal #2157 posted to beaglebot's journal on 08-03-03 02:14pm.  
Revised 12/02/2003  
Beaglebot's Entirely Unofficial UnFaq Version 2.0  
All tricks checked and working as of Linkfilter version 2.9  
Here are two bookmarks that I think everyone should have:  
http://linkfilter.net/?cmd=search - Goes straight to the detailed search  
http://www.linkfilter.net/?sort=random - Shows you random links. A great way to see old links  
Did ya know?  
When you do /who in chatter it sorts by tenure here at linkfilter.  
http://linkfilter.net/?s=u;sort=lastseen will show you all of the people in order that they were last seen, so that you can see everyone. Including those with hidden login on (via clu)  
Note: You can book mark journals like this one in your browser to help find them again easily  
This is in the main faq but is a constant problem for some of us. To do a comment scan for the day if you screw up and comment on something without having it open in a new window:  
(I finally got around to fixing the date and the editable url should work again. Detailed search is easier tho, give it a look)  
Trick if you accidentally lose the new comment scan is to edit the URL. http://www.linkfilter.net/?s=l&search=&user=&category=&date=&edate=20031130 will do comments from 11/30/03  
Bookmark tricks:  
Tired of bookmarking something and having it go away from the window with what ypou want to see? Just right click (APPLE-Click if you use a Mac) and use "open in new window, lets you keep your place and book marks the page for you  
To delete a bookmark, go to "my bookmarks and just click the bookmark icon again (thanks to FuzzyDave for this info)  
Want to see old posts? I have http://linkfilter.net/?sort=random set as my home page so the first thing I see is an assortment of old goodness then I just hit the linkfilter logo to take me to the recent goodness  
to /p someone with a space in their name use an undercore "_" instead of the space  
Linkfilter RSS feed:  
Chatter colors 0-7  
01 Blue,  
02 Green,  
03 Cyan,  
04 Brown,  
05 Magenta,  
06 Red,  
07 Grey  
0-7 is Black through Grey. 8-14 repeats the same color but bright (Light black-White)  
To edit a journal, click on the journal number and the familiar notepad icon will appear at the bottom right. Click it to edit  
Some filters (don't forget about detailed search!):  
Categories are:  
101 it's the arts,  
102 the wired,  
103 entertainment,  
104 fun and games,  
105 God's & government,  
106 the "other" pile,  
107 locals only,  
108 current events,  
109 blogs & zines,  
110 some dude/some chick,  
111 the biz,  
112 blinded by science,  
113 shopping,  
114 strangely funny,  
115 health,  
116 vices,  
117 the god ol' days  
there seems to also be a minrating=  
http://linkfilter.net/?s=p;is_open=1 - open polls  
http://linkfilter.net/?cmd=search - detailed search  
http://linkfilter.net/?s=j - journals  
all flowing sort by highest first:

http://linkfilter.net/?sort=rating;date=week(0) - (0) = this week, (-1) = last week, etc.  
http://linkfilter.net/?date=month(0);sort=rating -(0) this month, (-1) last month, etc  
http://linkfilter.net/?id=2 shows link by id number  
http://linkfilter.net/stats/ - Usage Statistics - Last 12 Months  
http://linkfilter.net/?sort=accessed - last accessed by any means  
http://linkfilter.net/?search=&user=&category=&date=&edate=&nsfw=&deleted=1&sort=date - see deleted links - with some editing you should be able to narrow that down quite a bit  
Filters and their modifiers figured out so far  
sorts from highest (or newest) to lowest  
Adding ~ to the modifier reverses the order. For example:  
~date - oldest to newest  
none - Shows links regardless of sfw/nsfw  
1 - Shows ones that are  
none - shows ones that are not  
dc - shows both  
Here is an editable URL for you to modify the filters:  
notes: 1) you don't have to put a modifier on them all, they'll just use the default 2) I still haven't figured out &edate  
Eidt username to whatever you want and that url will show you all of the links with exactly 5 votes

Kill Bill
Posted by kid-ney 15 years ago
Saw Quentin Torentino today on the program "On Air with Ryan Seacrest", saying that there will not be a third Kill Bill movie, for at least another fifteen years. He says that the scene of the sword hung on the wall, is a symbol that represents peace and somewhat of an end to the events of the woman's character. (for now anyway)
Well did it again
Posted by kid-ney 15 years ago
A REPOST what else? I'm going to try something . See if I can get to post a word to link to another place.  
Hello It's me again
Posted by kid-ney 15 years ago
Well it's been a while. Been busy shoveling snow and trying to keep warm, but spring is just around the corner, so things are looking brighter and warmer every day. We are now on the plus side of the thermometer; snow is melting and I can actually see grass along the sidewalk. My indoor plants are going crazy flowering, and even the plants I got from the city last fall, who are stowed away in the dark corners of my basement are sprouting leaves. Don't know how this is possible, but they are growing. Should have shaken more dirt off the root system before putting them away. All my flowering plants in the house are in deed flowering, even my Christmas cactus is blooming for the second time.The only plant not flowering is my british amerilus. Oh well it's still a beautiful green. I am now only 99,990 xp points away from the next level which is level 22.

Well another year has past and I made it. My birthday was pretty good as my wife sorta finnished early so we could go out to dinner. Went to a restaurant called 100 georges, only to find out it was not open on Sundays. Ended up by where my wife works. Nice place, food was really good, service not bad, and the price was excellent. Went to do some gambling at the slots and I didn't do too bad but Deb got lucky and won a jackpot, lucky her.

Posted by kid-ney 16 years ago
Well did it again. Leveled Up. Made it to level 20; finally after four months from the last level up. Oh well I don't mind so much . Kinda took my time plus was out doing the summer thing: (camping). Since Millermeteor75 has sorta been quiet and Grimrides (sadly), I've learned through the grape vine he is in the same age bracket as FD, and myself. Imagine that. Hope Fuzzy doesn't feel like he's the only one. Not that I think he really cares; who gives a fuck how many birthdays anybody has had in a lifetime. Garden is giving up it's riches as fall approaches. Brought in a couple of pretty big cucumbers and tomatoes, with more on the way. All that fertilizer helped the soil this year. Oh well guess thats all for now.
Level 18 May 09
Posted by kid-ney 16 years ago
Well made it to the next level. Yeaaaaah Baby. Last night I posted another fucked up link. I really don't want to do that but, it seems to happen more often than I want.Might it be a redirect or something like that. Had to give directions, like a road map, in order to get to the posted link. First click here, then click there, after that go here, then go there. My GOD what a mess. People still managed to view the link, and even voted on it. That's great. Linkfilter still very enjoyable even with the road maps.
Sisters House
Posted by kid-ney 16 years ago
Well, came back home on wednesday afternoon, after a little trip to my sisters' house down in SARS country (Toronto, Canada) Did a bit of work in the house with my 78 year old dad.We actually got her floor ready, to install her ceramic tiles she recently bought.Took the sqeeks out, and there was quite a few let me tell you. Weather was beautiful. A couple of, sunny, spring, days;temperature even reached 26 degrees celcius.Maveric, her pure bread boxer,has certainly put on weight over the winter. She will need to walk him more often. Well guess that's all for now.
Level 17 March 30
Posted by kid-ney 16 years ago
Well, made it to level 17 a few days ago. Cranberrylush and Robinrobin were very helpful in helping me obtain the correct url for a link I was asking administration to delete. Don't understand why the link didn't work for me. The link suggested by CBL, with a few adjustments, finally got the job done. The url she showed me was somewhat different than the original. My appreciation goes out to both of them;I need all the help I can get, thanks people.FD was trying to contact me, for what seemed like hours to him I imagine, cause I wasn't replying, but after a who's there scan, FD realized kid-ney was not present or accounted for.Oh well win some,lose some.I thanked him for all the XP points I accumulated by his comments posted on my link.(14) Hope to return the favor some day.Actually he was trying to contact me because I fucked up another link, forgetting to put a period before the html.My thanks go to FD as well.Nice people at this Linkfilter site.
New Level
Posted by kid-ney 16 years ago
Well, made it to the next level. Never thought I'd be reading so much on the computer. It is, still enjoyable, but sometimes frustrating because other people post the same links. Their links are like copyrighted. But thats all good. People would simply repost right. HA HA, as if they don't now. OH well guess it's what they call life on the web.It's still fucking cold outside. (-13c)Just a few days ago snow was melting. (YES)Cat is starting to go out more now. Dog, same ol', same ol'.Think I lost another fish; can't seem to see him anywhere. Maybe somebody ate him? Well guess thats all for now.
Posted by kid-ney 16 years ago
Never thought i'd have a journal; but i guess never say never. Had a small chat with, uhmmmm, one of the linkfilterers last night. Hope he or she doesn't think I'm too full of it, or pompous. If this person does, I'm sorry to come across like this. It is not what I intended. Oh well win some lose some. Made level 15 today. YEAH. I find Linkfilter very enjoying.
