Compliance Update

For safety reasons i have regularly monitored the actuation readings of this blog on a semi-periodic basis. Up until now, i have done this without telling anyone, because i didn't want to alarm you.


Now, with the new federal regulations set to kick in at the beginning of next year, i've decided to make the semi-periodic actuation readings public. i feel it's always better for my visitors to know, rather than to not know. And i am proud to say that this is the first blog in the history of the blogosphere to comply in advance with the upcoming, more stringent federal guidelines as enumerated at Title 51, vol. 3, ch. XVIII, parts 751 to 782, subparts S through T, inclusive.

i hope that by providing this information to you, i have put at least some of your minds at ease. Feel free to contact me with any concerns you might have, but at this time i'd like to remind everyone that to date there has been no credible study linking blog actuation levels to any serious health risk. However, i'm sure you will agree that it never hurts to be safe and informed. That's part of my commitment to you, dear visitor, to keep you safe and/or informed.

Carry on.

My head hurts... my head or my ass... I think I'll have another drink.

You know, this makes no fucking sense whatsoever. Time to explain another joke, annika.

Casca, drinking in a bar 'til one passes out frequently leads to a pain-in-the-ass feeling, especially if a certain Democratic ex-Prez is around.

I think what you have created here is an "attractive nusance". Clearly we are endangering our health, yet unable to avoid said danger.

Expect to hear from my attorneys you diabolical fiend.

you should probably shut down the blog until the EPA can investigate, I know that I want I would do.

You know just to be safe.

How long until Earth First, Greenpeace, or some other lefty organization starts a campaign about the dangers of over-actuation?

I have no cause for legal action. I was this way before Annika got here.

Posted by: MarkD on Aug. 9, 2005

Yes, Annika, I understand this completely: "safe and informed." Great thought and worthy of widespead publication nowadays.

Law School is a mind altering drug.

Even though I don't get this joke, I feel obligated to inform the blog administrator the little needle is bouncing between 150 and 160, which is, according to the scale, in the danger zone.

Posted by: Victor on Aug. 10, 2005

Thanks Victor, i'm working on the problem right now.

Posted by: annika on Aug. 10, 2005

That's it?

I thought I'd win a prize or something. For, you know, being the first one to let you know it was in the danger zone.

Posted by: Victor on Aug. 10, 2005

ooops! Forgot to mention it's pegged. I guess whatever this joke is, it's about to be sprung on us, like those snakes in a peanut can.

Posted by: Victor on Aug. 10, 2005

Okay, everything should be back to normal now.

Posted by: annika on Aug. 10, 2005

Whatttt? Are you talking about government blog regulations? Does the mean I can't talk and jabber recklessy about whatever I want and my site?
