Fun with Photoshop 4

Hmm, so Obama happens to be at my campus right now and you can absolutely tell. I’m pretty sure every firefighter, policeman, SWAT team, you name it…was called in today to help with the security. You never realize how much protection the man has until he visits your town. Not only that, but there’s a blackhawk flying around campus! Basically all of the streets around campus are closed, which turned out to be a nightmare of a traffic jam since whoever planned the route expects all commuters to go through only 2 main streets through the town. It’s a pretty neat experience however, except that I’m not there right now. For students, tickets to the event are free. And with everything free, they tend to run out fast. Also I had back to back classes today. Yea! The President happens to visit for the first time and our school still decides to go on with classes. Even though they closed down half of the campus, since he’s speaking right in the middle of it.

I just wanted to take a drive around campus to maybe catch a glimpse of the man, but no I would have had a better chance of trying to lose weight on a diet of lard and peanut butter icecream, while being flogged by a bunch of angry midgets. Anyways a usual 10 minute drive turned into a nightmarish 40 minute detour into the slums of my town. Yes, I got to discover potential places where I could possibly get mugged in the future. Couldn’t even get close enough to the campus to even maybe hear his voice. The only voices I heard were those that were screaming at the cars in front of them like it was going to make a difference. It’s almost as if people see more than 30 cars on the road at one time, not on the highway, they just forget how to drive. I had people making u-turns in the middle of traffic. People just stopping in the middle of the road for no reason. People that decided it would be fun to go in reverse. It was definitely fun to watch, but not fun to be in.

Anyways, so I just got home knowing that the President may never be that close in my life time and that I could have gotten a free ticket to see him speak, whether I agree with his policies or not. But no, I’m here right now and it’s ok though, I did make an effort to see him and in the process got to see many an adult play in a furious game of go-cart in the process. And also, I did find this picture…and it totally made me forget about the horrifying drive around town.
