Rudy, Thoughts

A Reminder of Why It Is

No Comments 10 December 2007

So last night, I got home from the Keg Christmas party a bit early. Sarah and Dean were having a great time with their crew and I had to work at 7:30 in the morning, so I busted out. When I got home, I was idly changing channels and found Rudy playing on channel 39. It was at the part where Rudy and D-Bob open the letter to find out whether or not Rudy was accepted. Now, I get very emotional every time I watch Rudy because it’s inspiring, motivational and extremely honest. I love this movie. I had some thoughts as I was watching the movie, as I always do:

1) If you are doing what you love but you’re aren’t putting your heart into it then what you say is bullshit. If you truly love it, you’ll put your heart and soul into it. If you don’t have “time” or if you have other things getting in the way, then stop letting that happen.

2) If you have a dream, as Rudy says, find out what must you do to achieve that dream. Then do everything you can to do it. If you’re sitting back with all these lofty goals and dreams but you keep making excuses, then shut up and don’t talk about it until you’re ready to make a change and do something about it. Don’t let other people do the work and then try to ride their coattails. It’s not fair for them, and you won’t get as much out of it. Yes it’s hard to start something and then follow through and finish it. That’s human nature. But you have 100% control over what you do. Your decisions, your actions, and your activities that you do, that is all up to you.

Now, assuming you have a positive goal/dream, and the time you spend is actually being put to good use, I believe the following applies:

– If you’re with someone that doesn’t appreciate the time it takes to go after a goal/dream, then you’re not with the right person

– If you’re with someone who holds against you the amount of time you spend on your goal/dream, then you’re not with the right person

Why do I say this (and I realize those points may sound a bit harsh)?
It’s because no matter what you do in your life, you cannot do on your own. And to achieve a goal/dream in which your partner supported you in getting there is that much sweeter. My goal/dream is to not only reach my goals and dreams, but to share that with my partner, and to be able to share and support her in her goals and dreams.

Everyone should have a dream and they should have attainable dreams. When you reach your dream, set a new one and go after it. Your whole life should be a series of dreams and goals that you are constantly setting, working towards, achieving and then setting new ones.

If you’ve never watched Rudy, watch it. Incredible true story.

Extreme Respect for Our Military

No Comments 29 October 2007

So a strange thing happened this weekend…

I was on a pub crawl for hallowe’en which consisted of 5 bars and many drinks. After the crawl, my buddy Dean and I, and his friend/colleague Tom (owner of the company that ran the pub crawl), went to 1410; a bar on 17th Ave for some more drinking. Now, while we were there, the lights came, the music went down, and we got ready to leave. However, being Hallowe’en I was on the lookout for costumes; good bad, and fake. Fake you ask? Well, there were a lot of cops out on the town (real and dressed up) and earlier we were talking about the point of how would you know who was who? Anyway, I noticed a table of roughly 10 people in military uniforms. Now, they all looked so good and real that I knew they couldn’t be fake. But I went over to find out regardless. I ended up talking to this group for 20 or so minutes, and found out that they had just come from a dinner ceremony at SAIT. There were a few of them who had lots of bars on their jacket representing awards and status achieved.

Now, after about 10 minutes or so, Dean came over and joined in our conversation. And during this conversation, the strangest thing happened…we both got an intense sense of pride and respect for of all these people. It could have been partly due to the fact that we had consumed many liters of fine beer, or it could have been the fact that this group was so welcoming, humble, and decorated. I definitely think it was a combination of the two, and by the end of the chat, just as we were leaving, it was almost like a chill came over my body because of what it all meant to me at that moment. I mean yes, their job is to serve and protect us, but still. They risk their lives for us knowing that many of the jobs they take could be their last.

That being said, please, on November 11, take a moment of silence for those who have fought and died for us in the past, present and the future.

And while you’re at it, watch this great song by Terry Kelly about taking a moment of silence: http://youtube.com/watch?v=KYlrrAWCTRg

Passports Needed for Travel

No Comments 25 September 2007

Yea yeah, I’m sure there are many rants about passports and how it sucks we have to get them and how it sucks how long it takes to get them and how much they cost and yadda yadda yadda. But really it’s not that bad. Seriously. What I am ranting about however is the lack of desire, motivation, and lack of common sense in jobs (in this case a government job).

Alright, so I waited in line outside of the passport office for about 20 minutes. Fine. No big deal. And I knew that it would be about an hour once I got inside. Ok, no biggie. However, what I do have a problem with is the last 20 minutes of my waiting time. I got in around 2pm, so I figured I’d be done by 3. Well, around 2:45 – 2:55, 7 of the 9 agents decide to take their coffee breaks at the same time. So, for about 25 minutes, there was only 2 agents doing applications. Which meant that everyone sat there until 3:15 and NOBODY got waited on. I was going to complain or say something to the manager, but since I really need my passport for 3 weeks I felt it wise to keep my mouth shut in case they might red flag me or something for being a jackass. Ah well, 1.5 hours of waiting and I got my passport application in. Sweet. California, here I come. I checked out some of the best travel gear reviews to help make my trip go smoother. Its going to be a great trip!

We Didn’t Start the Fire – Billy Joel

No Comments 19 August 2007

In case you haven’t heard this great song by Billy Joel, I recommend listening to it before reading the rest of this post…you can listen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFTLKWw542g

Just today, while listening to some Billy Joel, I was reintroduced to this great great song. In high school, our Outdoor Pursuits teacher, Mr. Fletcher, gave us an assignment to look up every historical reference in this song and find out what it meant. The assignment was worth something like 112 points – which equaled the number of historical references in the song. He was a huge history buff, and thought it would be an interested assignment. Which it was. However, whether he knew it or not, there are websites devoted to this song, and each historical reference is linked to a corresponding page with some information about that reference. So the assignment, while informative, was quite easy.

Here are the lyrics to the song, with the references linked (I’m sure some of the links don’t work as this is an old site):

California Dreamin’

No Comments 19 August 2007

So in 2 weeks, we’re (Invictus) is headed to Santa Cruz, California for Labor Day Classic; probably the premiere frisbee tournament anywhere in the world (along with ECC). We’re competing against teams like Sockeye, Furious, Rhino, Bravo, Revolver, Jam and others. Damn it’s going to be fun.

Oh, and I’ve never been to Cali before. I wish I could take some time off to just chill on the beach, but really I think I’ll save that for a cold week in the winter. Reading week anyone?

When You Feel Lost…Reach Waaay Down…Friendly Giant Style

No Comments 01 June 2007

Sometimes we reach a certain period in our lives in which we’ve forgotten our roots. The past few days have felt like such a period. Well don’t fear. I have rediscovered my true self. What is this true self that I speak of. What is it that I’ve forgotten. What is it that truly defines who I am as an individual, both spirtually, mentally, physically, and scentwise? Well, it can really only be one thing. That thing is Kenny Rogers Jackass. I get mopey. That happens when I don’t watch Kenny Rogers Jackass at least once a week. Well, I watched it tonight. Here’s to a fantastic week.

Of particular note, and really the core of my inner being, is the Batfetcher with your teeth. If you haven’t tried it, you really haven’t lived until you’ve caught a Louisville Slugger in your pearly whites.

I Eat 33,000 Calories a Day

No Comments 22 April 2007

Dear God, I really thought that I had seen everything. Apparently not. Check this out:http://tlc.discovery.com/tv-schedules/series.html?paid=2.14464.55746.27637.2

On this show, they featured 4 people who were morbidly obese. One guy consumed 36,000 calories in one day. More than a normal man should be consuming in 2 WEEKS! He was spending roughly $14,000 a year on chocolate bars! He ate 48 bags of chips in one day. Snacks alone contributed for 23,000 calories. He’s eating enough to gain 4 pounds PER DAY. He hasn’t walked in 6 years. Here they go featuring drug addicts on the tv show Intervention on A&E, and why has there not been a similar show for these food addicts? Are they not much worse? Where does he get the money to do this? Where does any of them get the money to afford the food they are eating? This guy re-mortgaged his house, and ended up spending half of that money on food. I was honestly speechless watching this show. There are so many problems in the world, but I honestly believe that food is the worst issue (drug) of all. Look at all the restaurants in Calgary. So much fat, sodium, sugar, and calories. Why is nothing being done? Why are people fat? Why don’t people exercise? Why do people spend so much money on food? Why do greedy companies like McDonald’s, KFC, Krispy Kreme, and others care so little about the health of humans, and so much about making profits? Why not make the push to go into healthy food? Healthy food can taste great and not load the pounds on us. Something needs to be done. We need to speak up about this. Sure, there are many other issues that need to be dealt with, but what will those issues matter when people are dying of being fat? Seriously. It’s outrageous.

This has been bugging me for a long time, and it seems that there are many news reports on about this, but what is actually being done? Why are these reports being shown on tv? Is anything actually being done?

I haven’t really asked this before, but I would love to hear any thoughts or comments you have on what I believe is a continental epidemic. Not just in North America, but also in Europe (where the show above was filmed).

Google Blurring Sensitive Map Information

No Comments 28 January 2007

Check out this story from Slashdot: link here

Apparently Google Maps is blurring out images of sensitive location, such as the 2 locations in the link above (one is a nuclear research facility on a university campus in the States, and the other is a power plant in Massachusetts.

Thoughts? Why should they blur it out? Are they that worried about terrorists tracking these locations, and using google maps to attack them? C’mon, let’s get serious here.

Election Campaign Monies

No Comments 23 January 2007

So I’m going to keep this short, but here goes:

Tonight on Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, there was a report on the 2008 presidential campaign, and the reporter made a statement to the effect that in order for a candidate to have a chance at running, they would need to fundraise at least $100 million. There was also a comment made that some of the candidates would be raising close to $300 million. more here

A few stories later, there was a report on New Orleans and how the city is doing 16 months later. And it’s not good. Although the city has applied for more than $300 million in aid from FEMA, they have only received about 1/3 of that funding. Apparently the discrepancy is due to errors in the city’s application, but knowing they need that much money, and having seen the story above about the amount of money that the presidential candidate will be raising makes me sick. Why doesn’t the US government pledge to give more money to New Orleans and Louisiana in general instead of pledging to send 20,000 more troops to Iraq? It seems like we have all of our priorities backwards.

In Philosophy we are learning about the theory of Consequentialism, and soon about Deontology. Basically, consequentialism says that one makes decisions based on what is for the good of the people involved. So, if killing one person meant that 5 would be saved, and saving 1 meant that 6 would be killed, then we should kill that one person. We should live a life where we make decisions that are for the good of humankind. But, everyday there are contradictions to this belief all over the world. In theory, this is a great belief, but in order for it to work, everyone has to live by it. If not everyone lives by it, then it won’t be feasible. Instead, although a few will be making good decisions, a few will be living selfishly and constantly hurt those who are trying to live for the good of humankind.

On the weekend, Sheena and I watched Al Gore’s movie, A Inconvenient Truth. It’s awesome. It’s awesome in a scary, sickening, painfully truthful way. Gore has been saying essentially the same thing for 30 years, and really, how many people have been listening? How would the US, and for that matter, the world be any different had he been elected as president in the place of Bush? I’d like to believe that he would have focused more on the environment, and what we are doing instead of what other countries are doing. I realize that we have to proactive and the US is great for that; who knows, had they not done anything about Iraq, maybe Saddam would have done something. In any case, the issues that really matter, the issues that will guide our future existence on this planet, the issues that we know the least about are the issues that we are spending the least amount of time, money, and press on.

In my opinion, we (as a people) should be focusing on the following issues:

1) Space – there is life out there. When we do find it, it will be the single largest discovery in the history of the world. We mustn’t give up because there have been accidents. Read Michael Crichton’s new book “Next” and you may just see my point of view, or at least understand where I’m coming from.

2) Ocean – along the same lines as space, I believe that we need to explore the oceans more. Who knows just what they hold? And after all, 75% of the world is covered in water, and like 95% of that is salt water, which is not potable, so we need to also focus research on extracting the salt from the water.

3) Global Warming – as mentioned above, watch “An Inconvenient Truth” and read “State of Fear” by Michael Crichton. This issue is very real. This issue won’t be solved overnight. And if we don’t do something about it soon, then soon it will be too late.

4) Overconsumption – this has many facets, but the one that comes to mind is the theory of 80/20; 20% of the population consumes 80% of the resources. This is true in North America. If you don’t believe what I’m saying, or don’t think it’s really that big of an issue, then take a trip to the US. Notice how many fast food restaurants there are the next time you’re driving. Take notice how many vehicles there are on the roads. We are very quickly moving away from a people that is becoming so lazy that we would love to save a few seconds in the most trivial of tasks (why else do people do the things they do when they drive? – i.e. eating breakfast, reading the paper, putting on makeup?). Soon everything that we do in a day will be automated, and will require such little effort from us that we will feel very useless in the average day. More and more people are developing diseases (diabetes, heart disease) from what we eat, and what we don’t do (exercise, eat healthy). It’s very simple. Eat better, and exercise. Yet, many people think that only one of those will work. Some think that if they eat crap food, but exercise all the time, then they will be fine. That’s false. Some think that if they eat healthy food, but don’t exercise, then they will be fine. That’s also false. If you had to pick one, obviously it’s better to eat healthy than to not exercise, but everyone has the time and the ability to do both. They just need to cut out the less important things – watching tv, playing video games, watching movies, shopping, etc.

5) Less drugs – every so often, when I’m up really late at night, I’ll stumble across an infomercial about the book “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You to Know About” and other books from the same author. What’s amazing to me, and I believe this guy, is that he promotes healing through the use of everything but drugs from people like Tylenol, Advil, or Aspirin. From what I gathered from his responses, much of the cures are simply eating healthy food. And think about it. Why would any doctor want there to exist a cure for cancer, diabetes, MS, AIDS, and Alzheimer’s Disease among others. Why they wouldn’t want there to be a cure is because? if everyone is healed, then that means a lot less sick people, and a lot less doctors would be needed. Also, drug companies for sure wouldn’t want there to be any cures for the diseases that their drugs are supposed to treat because in that case they would be out of business. It’s late, and I’m headed for bed, and I could definitely go on about this issue for a long time, but for now, I will leave it at that.

We as a people have come a long way, but we also have a long way to go. The only way we can change is to think about what we see, hear, and read. In this way, we can all evolve as a species together, and help each other out. True, this is more of a communistic view, where everyone is equal but we can all do our part. As a whole, we have much more power than a single person.

Think about it.
That is all.
