Today, just for a bit of fun, I want to share something absolutely funny and wonderful with everyone.
But – you’ll have to do just a little bit of work for it.
Open up your web browser’s search engine, and look for “O’Reilly Auto Parts”. When you get the results, go to the website, and you’ll see (probably in the top left corner) another search tool for their website. Put this into the search tool – 121G – and hit the “enter” key.
(Major kudos to my wonderful wife for sharing that with me)
There is no way this could have been anything other than SPAM – and I don’t mean the processed meat product.
This morning I got an email that was congratulating me for some sort of “achievement” – here is the text of the email:

This is a bad joke. It’s a joke, because I’ve never worked for a company (other than the US Army and a few fast food franchises) that even had enough “colleagues” to have made this nomination in the numbers the email reports. It’s a bad joke because I haven’t worked for ANYONE in the last year.
Well, having accomplished what I set out to do with this blog, I think it is time to shut it down.
The reason I’m doing this now it simple: I had 90 days to renew my domain registration when they informed me that WordPress has decided to force a 2-stage authentication process that requires a form of verification that I literally can’t provide – a cell phone number. Since I do not have a cell phone, and wouldn’t tie it to my blog even if I did, it is time to quit WordPress. Besides, I’ve done what I set out to do with this blog, by laying personal claim to ideas that were hugely influential in the outcome of the 2016 election for the USA. Everything else was gravy.
So, I’m transferring all of my files and blog posts to my original blog at: http://mr-spock.livejournal.com/ and asking that if you want to continue to follow my journey of self discovery, you’ll bookmark that page or subscribe to it. I’ve been blogging on that page since 2004.
Thank you, one and all, for making this page feel like a resounding success.
