Meryl Streep Wins Oscar for What?

Spoiler Alert: Meryl Streep wins an Academy Award because Hollywood are a bunch of douches who liked her rant about Donald Trump. Talk about an over rated actress!

Are the Oscars Prerecorded?

Yesterday I went to Hollywood to take some photos before the Oscars that are to start today at 4 PM Pacific time. This morning I woke up and watched Jimmy Kimmel Live at 8 AM, but his show is supposed to be live after the Oscars. How did he have recordings of people walking the red carpet and he even had outcomes of who won at 8 AM when it doesn’t take place for another 6 hours? Are the Oscars an illusion? Does it really take place earlier in the week, but Hollywood leaves the stages and everything up as an illusion? Is the Flux Capacitor real and they take people back in time by using the Delorean from Back to the Future?

Oscars 2017


This year I’m not really excited about the Academy Awards as I have been in the past. I think I have heard about all I want to hear from Hollywood and movie stars to are obviously privileged and overpaid. Especially since this was an election year and I heard numerous Hollywood elites say that because Donald Trump got elected they are going to leave the country. Well, Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States and I’m still waiting for these pampered jerk offs to leave the country. They definitely have the money. They certainly have the motivation. Get stepping! The problem is that they want their cake and they want to eat it too. They want to be in the United States when they are making millions of dollars, but as soon as things don’t go their way, they start crying and saying how they are going to leave, but they never do. Why do you think that is? It’s because they are nothing more than a bunch of hot air.

Goodbye Barrack Obama – Worst President in United States History

End_of_an_error_barrack_obama
Say “Goodbye” to the worst mistake in American history. Your socialist days of trying to turn the United States into a 3rd world country are no more. You will be seen and remembered for what you are…a utter mistake that was pushed into power by the liberal media.

Irish Ghost Story

John Bradford, Dublin University student, was on the side of the road hitch-hiking on​ ​​​a very dark night and in the midst of a big storm.The night was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he​ ​could hardly see a few feet ahead of him.​ ​Suddenly, he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stopped. John, desperate for​ ​shelter and without thinking about it, got into the car and closed the​ ​door … only to realize there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn’t running.The car started​ ​moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a curve​ ​approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then,​ ​just before the car hit the curve, a hand appeared out of nowhere through the window, and turned the wheel. John, paralyzed with terror, watched as the hand came through the window, but never touched or harmed him.

Shortly thereafter,​ ​​J​​ohn saw the lights of a pub appear down the road, so, gathering strength, he jumped out of the car and ran to it. Wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about the horrible experience he had just had. A silence enveloped​ ​the pub when everybody realized he was crying … and wasn’t drunk.​ ​Suddenly, the door​ ​opened, and two other people walked in from the dark and stormy night.​ ​They, like John, were also soaked and out of breath. Looking around,​ ​and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the other…​ ​”Look Paddy … there’s that fooking idiot wot got in the car while we were pushing​ ​it!”

Five Undeniable Facts

1. A girl is said to be grown up when she starts wearing a bra. A boy is grown up when he starts removing it.

2. We all love to spend money buying new clothes but we never realize that the best moments in life are enjoyed without clothes.

3. Having a cold drink on hot day with a few friends is nice, but having a hot friend on a cold night after a few drinks – PRICELESS.

4. Breaking News: Condoms don’t guarantee safe sex anymore. A friend of mine was wearing one when he was shot dead by the woman’s husband.

5. Arguing over a girl’s bust size is like choosing between Molson, Heineken, Coors & Budweiser. Men may state their preferences, but will grab whatever is available.

I haven’t verified this on Snopes, but it sounds legal.

A recent study found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.

    Bob and the Blonde

    Bob, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV. The 10 pm news was coming on. The news crew was covering the story of a man on the ledge of a large building preparing to jump. The blonde looked at Bob and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”

    Bob said, “You know, I bet he’ll jump.”

    The blonde replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.”

    Bob placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, “You’re on!”

    Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her $20 to Bob, saying, “Fair’s fair. Here’s your money.”

    Bob replied, “I can’t take your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 pm news, and so I knew he would jump.”

    The blonde replied, “I did too, but didn’t think he’d do it again.”

    Bob took the money…

    Brief California History Lesson


    Do you know what happened 166 years ago this summer…September 9th, 1850?

    California became a state! The people had no electricity, the state had no money and almost everyone spoke Spanish. There were gunfights in the streets.

    So basically nothing has changed except back then the women had real tits and the men didn’t hold hands.

    And that, my friends, is your history lesson for today.

    Boar’s Head Handcrafted Sandwich

    thekumachan_boars_head-1
    I was at the supermarket and I saw a Boar’s Head turkey sandwich that looked pretty good. Now, although this sandwich did taste as good as it looked, one thing I didn’t notice until I opened it because the sandwiches were standing vertically was the huge lettering at the bottom that said, “Handcrafted.” As I was eating the sandwich I couldn’t help, but think about why they would put that on the packaging. Are other sandwiches made specifically by sandwich making machines? Is there some sort of sandwich apprenticeship that they are proudly displaying their craftsmanship? Are they trying to brag? Perhaps this is just a stupid marketing ploy to try to entice people to buy their sandwiches. Whichever it is, it is all nonsense. Just let the sandwich speak for itself. It looked good. It tasted good. Leave it alone.

    I went on a photo shoot with, Tatiana, one of the models from the previous Boarder X Brewery event that I took photos at.

    I am a Veteran

    I am a veteran. I chose to serve my country, not because it was cool, but because I though it was the right thing to do. I didn’t join to try to be an sort of hero. I just wanted opportunities to travel the world, learn a decent job, and get a college degree. I was willing to make the sacrifices that many other’s weren’t. I raised my right hand and swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States against enemies both foreign and domestic. Although I did not retire from the military, I served honorably. I don’t ask to be recognized. I don’t ask for free stuff. I don’t need people to buy me free beer or pat me on the back. I have done what my country has asked of me and I’ve demanded nothing in return. At sporting events when they ask veteran’s to stand to be recognize, I sit quietly and look around at the real heroes. I believe the it is because of other like-minded individuals from all walks of life, different backgrounds, different cultures, different races, and even different sexual preferences, that have swore the same oath that I swore to protect and defend our beloved country is what makes our country great.

    Many people don’t understand the sacrifices that veteran’s have made. They have chosen to protect the United States of America, the values that we stand for, and the ideals that we uphold. They travel to distant lands, spend time away from friends and loved ones, and missed many holidays, birthdays, births, graduations, and other important events. Many service members do not get the opportunity to become a veteran as many never make it home.

    When veteran’s day comes around I don’t ask for a day off work. I don’t post my photo to get recognition or praise. I just want to shake the hand or acknowledge others who were willing to do the same thing I did. These are the people I like to know. These are the truly great people who make this country what it is. These are the people that are always welcome and have a friend with me. Here’s to you. Cheers.

    45th President of the United States: Donald J. Trump

    That was quite an election and Donald J. Trump will be the 45th President of the United States of America. I didn’t see that coming and it was a surprise to see that he pulled out a win. It definitely shows that American’s don’t agree with Barrack Obama and want to turn the country away from the direction he was taking the country. One major thing that I was surprised about was the lack of voter turnout. When I look through the numbers of every state it appears that on average only somewhere between 40-50% of people actually voted. That’s almost 60% of the country who didn’t vote. That’s a very big surprise for me. It was also surprising to see the republican’s held the house and senate and now the presidency too. That’s an all republican controlled government. Let’s see if they can get things passed and if congress will get back to work, as opposed to, the gridlock they maintained while Obama was president. I look forward to seeing the change, I look forward to seeing what changes will be made, and I look forward to seeing how great American will become.

    Southern Cops Have a Way With Words

    These are actual comments made by South Carolina Troopers that were taken off their car videos:

    1. “You know, stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through.”
    2. “Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them a while.”
    3. “If you take your hands off the car, I’ll make your birth certificate a worthless document.”
    4. “If you run, you’ll only go to jail tired.”
    5. “Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that’s the speed of the bullet that’ll be chasing you.”
    6. “You don’t know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?”
    7. “Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don’t think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I’m the shift supervisor?”
    8. “Warning! You want a warning? O.K, I’m warning you not to do that again or I’ll give you another ticket.”
    9. “The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?”
    10. “Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop.”
    11. “Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven.”
    12. “In God we trust; all others we run through NCIC.” ( National Crime Information Center )
    13. “Just how big were those ‘two beers’ you say you had?”
    14. “No sir, we don’t have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we’re allowed to write as many tickets as we can.”
    15. “I’m glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail.”

    And the winner is…

    16. “You didn’t think we give pretty women tickets? You’re right, we don’t. Sign here.”

    Demonstration of Love

    A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands. The women were asked, “How many of you love your husband?” All the women raised their hands.

    Then they were asked, “When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?

    “Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn’t remember.

    The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband – “I love you, Sweetheart”

    Next the women were instructed to exchange phones with one another and read aloud the text message they received in response to their message.

    Below are hilarious replies. If you have been married for quite a while, you understand that these replies are a sign of true love. Who else would reply in such a succinct and honest way?

    1. Who the hell is this?
    2. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick or what?
    3. Yeah, and I love you too. What’s wrong?
    4. What now? Did you wreck the car again?
    5. I don’t understand what you mean?
    6. What the hell did you do now?
    7. Don’t beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?
    8. Am I dreaming?
    9. If you don’t tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die.
    10. I thought we agreed you wouldn’t drink during the day.
    11. Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn’t she?

    Donkey

    The king wanted to go fishing. He called on the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days.

    So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area”.

    The king was polite and considerate, he replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.”

    So the king continued on his way. However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition.

    Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.

    The farmer said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.” So the king hired the donkey.

    And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential positions. The practice is unbroken to this day and the Democrat symbol was born.

    thekumachan_Kansas_City_Southern_Train-1
    I was in traffic, looked over, saw this train, and snapped a quick photo of it. It made me wonder, was it this train that got somebody out of this town? Did this train bring somebody into this town? Was this train the one where people dreams began or was it the one where they ended? Whichever it was, this vessel was the backbone that carried those aspirations and burdens. It must be quite the vessel.

    West Coast Cars

    Went to an event tonight were there were some tricked out West Coast cars with hydraulics, low riders, and some motorcycles. It was my first time ever seeing anything like this so I tried to capture the cars in the best light. Here are some of my photos from the event.

    Working Mammals

    Drove over to San Diego to see the pens where the United States Navy holds and cares for dolphins. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that the United States Navy gives these dolphins the very best care that they can give them, but it made me think about if the Navy should be using dolphins as working animals. The police use dogs as working animals to help sniff out drugs and bombs. Blind people use dogs to help aid for their loss of vision. Autistic people even use dogs to assist them. Is an animal’s life less valuable than a human life? Should dolphins be used to help find and identify potential threats to naval ships? If they are used in that regard why not use them to attack and do harm to others as well? Where do you draw the line for working animals? Should animals be used as combatants or kept as non-combatants? Koreans use dogs to smell out and track down north Korean defectors. Then again Koreans eat dogs too, so they might not hold animals in the highest regard. Should it be acceptable for the United States to use animals to protect the lives of American combatants and naval ships?

    Japanese Pig

    I was playing around with the application called Procreate and drew this silly Japanese pig that says, “Boo Boo” instead of “oink oink.” Procreate was a very nice and intuitive application that I would like to play around with more to get the feel for it.

    Bees at Work

    I was at LaJolla in San Diego, California and I walked by some flowers and saw some bees that were hard at work.  I decided to take some photos of the bees and I must say I was pleased with the results.

    Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo Monument

    Drove over to Point Loma in San Diego, California today to see the Cabrillo National Monument and take some photos to document my experience. Prior to going here I knew absolutely nothing about Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo and his monument. Now I know that Cabrillo, a navigator sailing under the flag of Spain, landed at San Diego. Stepping ashore on Ballast Point, he was the first European to land on the west coast of what is now the United States of America.

    Photos describing about Cabrillo and the monument:

    The plaque reads:
    In homage to the Spanish expedition composed of the ships San Salvador, Victoria, and San Miguel that arrived at San Diego on 28th of September 1542 under the command of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo who took possession of these lands on behalf of His Catholic Majesty Charles King of Spain opening the maritime route that led to the subsequent development of California. The Spanish Navy September 28, 2003.

    United States and Mexico Boarder Wall

    thekumachan_US-Mexico_Boarder-4thekumachan_US-Mexico_Boarder-3thekumachan_US-Mexico_Boarder-2thekumachan_US-Mexico_Boarder-1
    For those who are angry at Donald Trump for suggesting that he will build a wall to separate the United States and Mexico, have no reason to actually be angry at Donald J. Trump. It will be rather difficult for him to build a wall where there is already a wall that separates the United States and Mexico. These photos were taken in California separating San Diego and Tijuana. As you can see Mexico has a lot of houses and businesses near the boarder, but there was not very much on the United States side.

    It is the same thing as if you want to keep trespassers off your land. You put up a fence. Does it completely stop them? No. Does it deter most? Yes. If you don’t think a wall or fence work, try asking Mongolia how well a wall works. Fencing companies aren’t going out of business anytime too soon. Why do you think that is? Because they do work.

    Jollibee San Diego

    Today I drove through National City and I found a Jollibee there.  The last time I had Jollibee was in the Philippines.  I might go over there sometime just to try it out.
