Mary Me [20 Nov 2006|07:34pm]
Ok so what is it tonight?
Please just tell me what the hell is wrong
Do you want to eat do you want to sleep do you want to drown
Just settle down, settle down, settle down

I'll give you candy, give you diamonds, give you pills
I'll give you anything you want... Hundered dollar bills
I'll even let you watch the shows you want to see
just marry me, marry me, marry me

I'm so sick of you tonight
You never stay awake when I get home
Is something wrong with me, something wrong with you?
I really wish I knew, wish I knew, wish I knew

I'll give you candy, give you diamonds, give you pills
give you anything you want... Hundered dollar bills
I'll even let you watch the shows you want to see
because you married me, married me, married me
married me, married me, married me

When I was younger I learned this game
Love and happiness were the same
Now I'm older and I don't play
learned it all the hardest way

I got wasted, she got mad
Called me names, then she called her dad
He got crazy and wanted to
wonder what I did to you

I'll give you candy, give you diamonds, give you pills
give you anything you want fucking Hundered dollar bills
I'll even let you hear the songs I want to sing
I'll give you anything anything anything
anything anything anything
anything anything anything
anything

Artist: Jackpot
Yes... they are a myspace band... but they could be soo much more.

BACTERIAL MENINGITIS [25 Oct 2006|09:27pm]
[ mood | sick ]

Like a good student I went to school today, even though I definately didn't feel like it... I stayed until the end of lunch so it wouldn't be counted as an absence. When I went to the nurse she took my temperature and told me that 100.8 was too high to stay in school and that I absolutely had to go home. So I walked up to the Junior parking lot, got into my car (the first and worst day to park in the junior lot) and drove home. I was excited to find that my pop tart/ xbox 360 beanie had arrived in the mail. I didn't think those free offers on the back of pop tart boxes ever worked... I came home and passed out. My head is throbing and it would be such a relife just for it to explode and all the pressure leave it... the pressure is also in my ears and it hurts the ears to swallow, as well as the throat. My neck is stiff and I really don't feel like sitting here to type to you about my illness... Aparently these are also symptoms of bacterial meningitis. Why wouldn't have doctor Walker reconized such a possibility and tested me for it yesterday? My faith in doctors is fading.

Definition:
Meningitis is an infection of the fluid in the spinal cord and the fluid that surrounds the brain. Meningitis is usually caused by an infection with a virus or a bacterium. Knowing whether meningitis is caused by a virus or a bacterium is important because of differences in the seriousness of the illness and the treatment needed.

VIRAL MENINGITIS is usually relatively mild. It clears up within a week or two without specific treatment. Viral meningitis is also called aseptic meningitis.

BACTERIAL MENINGITIS is much more serious. It can cause severe disease that can result in brain damage and even death.


I have had bacterial meningitis once before. I wasa delerious because of the untreated build up of infection in my spinal cord. They sped me to the hospitol in Roanoke. Right before we got off the interstate a cop pulled us over. They explained my condition and he escorted us, lights and sirene blazing, to the hospitiol.

Definition:
In medicine, a lumbar puncture (colloquially known as a spinal tap) is a diagnostic procedure that is done to collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for biochemical, microbiological, and cytological analysis, or rarely to relieve increased CSF pressure.

So more or less they have a 5 inch needle that is inserted into the disk (those squishy things between your vertebrae).
Here is an illistration:


I wish Sarah were here.

Monitor Stereo [17 Aug 2006|12:51am]
My friend, Jeremy Worley came to me with a car stereo and an idea. He wanted to use the car stereo as a normal stereo because motorized faceplate no longer worked. We settled on an unusual case, but in the end it worked out well...

I first took off the gears and motor that no longer worked and detached the faceplate. Using a rotary tool I cut out the front of the monitor where the stereo face plate will go. After the hole was the right size I screwed the faceplate in place.

 

I used an old piece of plexi glass for the screen. I used sandpaper to give it a "frosted" effect.



The CD drive sets on top of the stereo case so you can insert discs through a slot in th plexi glass.



I turned it on to make sure everything still worked.



Paint:

Following the instructions on the can of "Krylon Fusion" I painted the case. (It is good paint)


The faceplate is still removeable.



Wiring:

One of the biggest problems with power was finding a source that had enough amps to run the car stereo. The supply needed atleast 10 amps at 12 volts. I went through 2 powersupplies before I figured it out.

Using the factory wiring harness I wired the front speaker wires to a speaker socket and the rear speaker wires to two rca plugs. (I didn't have another speaker socket)



PSU power cord goes in the monitor's already existing power cord hole.



The ATX power supply will connect to the wiring harness using atx plugs so it can be eaisily disconected if needed.



Modified power cord from atx. (only 12v and gnd is needed)



Back:



I decided to add a terminal block for the amp remote wire, radio antena, and 12volts out.



Front:



Cut a hole in the plexi so that the CD drive would fit behind it.



Added 2 blue leds and 1 green led behind the plexiglass.





Finished:

CD goed in through slot in plexi glass.
