In my short time here on this Earth I have been witness to some amazing changes in technology.
I have seen music go from albums, to cassette tapes, to cd's, to MP3 players, to cell phones.
And speaking of televisions, I have seen channels go from 3 or 4 to hundreds.
I have seen telephones go from hanging on the wall with the 20 foot cord, so I can drag it into my room for privacy, to cordless, to cell phones that were about 2 feet long, to phones that could fit in the palm of my hand, to no house phones at all, to phones that can control the temperature of your house.
I have seen computers that were as big as some rooms, to computers that could only do one thing at a time, to desk top computers, to lap top computers, to computers that can fit in your pocket.
I have seen cars go from the Cadillac's that the back bumper always fell off of, to cars that can parallel park themselves or tell you there is another car in your blind spot.
I can go on and on about the advances I have seen in my short 30 something years on this Earth.
And there is no telling what I will see in the next 30 something years.
So there is no excuse I can be given, seeing all the scientific advances in damn near everything, from the way we cook our food, to the way we go get our food; that a damn oil leak cannot be plugged the hell up.
There is nothing that can be said to me that can explain why in 2010, when we have video games that mimic every move that you can make, that a supposedly technology savvy company like BP, cannot plug a hole in some pipes and stop the damn oil leaking into the damn gulf.
If this was 1920 when half the country still did not have electricity in their houses, I might be able to understand.
But in 2010?
Come on Son. I ain't trying to hear that shit.
And it is amazing to me how the damn pipes blew up about a month after the President was talking about starting off shore drilling to utilize the resources we already have, instead of relying on people that want to Jihad us to death.
Yep Son, I smell a damn rat.
2 months of oil leaking into the damn gulf?
With no known technology that can stop it?
That is almost as believable as me marrying Eva Mendez on the next full moon, with the Wolfman serving as my best man.
Or as believable as Michael Steele being elected to head the Redumlican Party based on his qualifications and Political smarts.
I'm really believing that.
