Yo'all keep a comin' back now! Ya hear?


Check here for the latest updates to my web site.

I just added a new page, THE FOURTH DIMENSION AND BEYOND.
It's about multi-dimensional geometry.

My list of web page links is toward the bottom of this Homepage.
Just scroll down. You'll get there!

Until DOOM'S DAY December 21,2012


On December 21,2012 the sun and the earth will be lining up with the galactic center on the day of the Winter Solstice. This is the end of a time cycle of the Mayan calender. Now, some people actually believe that the Mayan Calendar predicts the end of time itself, and therefore, the end of the world, because the Mayan calender ends on that date.


NAH! JUST KIDDING! . . . . . It's merely the end of one time cycle and the beginning of a new one. That's all.

So, just what is so special about the alignment of the sun and earth with the galactic center that is to occur on the winter solstice of December 21,2012?

Well, actually nothing special at all. This particular alignment occurs about every 26,000 years. It is called "The Procession" by astronomers. As the earth rotates it spins and wobbles like a toy top. It takes about 26,000 years for the earth to complete this wobble, and the alignment that will occur on December 21,2012 is the same as the one that occurred about 26,000 years ago, and 26,000 years before that one, and the one before that one, and so on, and so on, and so on, as it has occurred so may times before for the past 4.5 billion years that our planet has been in existence. So, if the earth is about 4.5 billion years old, then there has been approximately 173,076.9 processional cycles occurring every 26,000 years, and the earth has survived every one of them in tact.

At the present time, during the Spring Equinox which is on March 21, the sun is in the constellation of Pisces, but in another 100 years or so, the sun will be in Aquarius on the March 21 Spring Equinox. This is what is meant by the dawning of the Age Of Age Of Aquarius as in the popular song. This is cause by the 26,000 year wobble of the earth's rotational axis, hence, the term "Procession Of The Equinox" used by astronomers.

So, we're still in the Age Of Pisces, and then, we will eventually be in the Age Of Aquarius. Each "age" lasts approximately 2,170 years as the Spring Equinox gradually shifts from one constellation to another among the 12 constellations of the Zodiac and the cycle repeats every 26,000 years, as it has done so for about 173,076.9 cycles during the past 4.5 billion years. Therefore, once again I reiterate, the upcoming alignment of the sun and the earth with the galactic center on the December 21,2012 Winter Solstice does NOT mean the end of the world or the end of time.

Of course, that's not to say that there hasn't been any "doomsdays" in the past, because there has. About 60 million years ago, an asteroid or comet collided with the earth wiping out most of the life on the planet and causing the dinosaurs to become extinct, so, for the dinosaurs it was the end of the world, but not the end of the planet itself. There has been some other major extinction events in the past. Also, about 700,000 years ago a super volcano erupted which pretty much fucked up the planet, but life recovered and the earth goes on.

But there is no evidence of any kind of major disaster happening every 26,000 years, so this upcoming alignment on December 21,2012 is no different than all the others that have occurred every 26,00 years. The world is not going to come to an end anytime soon. Not unless we do something stupid, like having a world wide nuclear war or something. Then, the world for us will have come to an end, but the planet will still be here. It's just that we won't be here.

Then there is always the possibility of another asteroid or comet colliding with the earth. It's not a question of IF, but a question of WHEN. It's happened before, and it happens on average of about every 300 million years or so, just like the last one that killed off the dinosaurs about 60 million years ago.

But we have an advantage over the dinosaurs. If we know that an asteroid is on a collision course with the earth, and if we know this early enough, we have the means of sending out a space probe to deflect the path of the asteroid just enough so that it would miss the earth entirely. We can do this. The dinosaurs could NOT!

Anyway . . . . . . .

I only added the DOOMSDAY COUNTDOWN to my web site because I think in looks kind of cool! I like adding Java Scripts to my web site because they look so neat. Also, I'll probably watch the movie 2012 when it comes to the theaters. The movie should be quite entertaining.

And by the way . . . You can add the Java Script for the countdown to your own web site. Just click on "View" at the top bar of your browser or right-click your mouse on the web page and click on "View Page Source" and scroll down until you see COUNTDOWN UNTIL DOOMSDAY, then copy and paste the Java Script to your own web site. Of course, you can change the date settings and make it a countdown to something else, like your birthday, or a favorite holiday, etc. etc. A word of caution however. If you change the calender on your computer to test the countdown, then messing around with your computer's calendar might cause your computer to slow down or even lock up if you have an AVG Anti-virus program running in the background. Yeah, I did an experiment setting my calendar to December 20,2012 and the clock to 11:59:00 PM and as the countdown reached Midnight, it said "Doomsday!" then I used my Atom Time to reset the clock and calendar, and when I tried to reload my web page to check to see if the countdown was reset, my computer ran really slow and it caused my AVG Anti-virus to act as if it was way out of date and seriously needed to be up-dated. To correct the problem, I had to shut down the computer and re-boot.

Anyway . . . . .

Therefore, it's safe to assume, that December 21,2012 will be just another day. And so, you'll all get to live to enjoy another New Year's Eve when we change over to January 1,2013, that is, if you don't do anything so fucking stupid like get drunk on your ass and then get behind the wheel of your vehicle and wrap your gas guzzling SUV 21 times around a telephone pole or something! YEAH! New Year's Day is usually Doomsday for morons and idiots! So, December 21,2012 will be just another boring Winter Solstice as usual. HO HUM!

Sorry folks! No DOOMSDAY! OK???

Not UNLESS . . . . .

That moron, Sarah Palin decides to run for President since it will be an election year, and if she wins!!! Then . . .


OK! Now on to some other web site stuff . . . . .

Now, a little bit about myself. My name is Gerald and I live in El Paso, Texas. My favorite hobbies are working with computers. When ever I need a new computer, I usually buy the parts I need and I put it together myself. I prefer to build my own computer and install the software myself. I also like working on oil paintings and eventually I want to get back to building radio controlled model planes.

My political views, well, I might be liberal on many social and economic issues, and I might be somewhat conservative on some other issues. I really don't like to use labels, because I really don't give a flying fuck in Hell what-so-ever about what is considered politically correct or politically incorrect, because that usually changes over the years. What is considered politically correct today might become politically incorrect tomorrow, and visa versa, and versa visa. So, if any of my political views happen to correspond with what is liberal or conservative or politically correct or politically incorrect, then such correspondences are purely coincidental. I am me! OK?

Also, I'm the typical NERD or GEEK! I don't like sports. I have absolutely no use for sports and jocks and boring sports fans who only want to talk about sports all the fucking time! And I also believe that sports is responsible for the declining quality of educations in America's school system.

Anyway . . . . . . .

As you have noticed by my photo at the top of the page, I'm a fat man, hence the name of my web site, The Fat Man's Emporium, I'm into the Size Acceptance movement for civil right for us larger people. I'm perfectly contented being a large person. I actually like being a much larger person. So, please, no E-mails telling me to lose weight. OK? The photo above was taken back in April 2007 when I weighed about 370 pounds. I'm now almost 400 pounds, and I'm only 5 feet 6 inches in height.

One of my favorite rock singers is Meat Loaf, another large guy. I remember watching him on TV when he came out on stage singing Like A Bat Out Of Hell. He looked truly awesome, like a big fat Opera singer.

This photo was taken back in 1975 during a rock concert when he sang Bat Out Of Hell. He weighed over 300 pound at the time.

I can identify with Meat Loaf. He had an abusive father when he was a kid and I had an abusive step-father. He was close to his mother as I was very close to my mother. He was a fat kid, so his father called him "Meat Loaf" and the name stuck, so he went on to use that name when he became a rock musician. I became fat during my teenage years and my step-father use to call me names because of my being fat. Meat Loaf is overweight and I'm fat myself. Also we were both born on a September 30, so our birthdays come on the same day.

Here are some YouTube links to a couple of videos. These are some black and white home movies of when he was a fat kid called Meatloaf by his father. His dad gives his belly a shake.

Meat Loaf as a young kid

The next video, this time with some color and sound. This one is Meat Loaf with his mother.

The next video is of Meat Loaf performing at a rock concert in 1993. He looks thinner in this video.

Meat Loaf - Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are

I believe that it was his childhood experiences that might have inspired him to write this song. I'm not really sure.

Here are the lyrics to to the song.

Objects In The Rear View Mirror
May Appear Closer Than They Are

The skies were pure and the fields were green
And the sun was brighter than its ever been
When I grew up with my best friend kenny
We were close as any brothers than you ever knew
It was always summer and the future called
We were ready for adventures and we wanted them all

But I can still recall the sting of all the tears when he was gone
They said he crashed and burned
I know Ill never learn why any boy should die so young
We were racing, we were soldiers of fortune
We got in trouble but we sure got around
There are times I think I see him peeling out of the dark
I think he's right behind me now and hes gaining ground

But it was long ago and it was far away, oh God it seems so very far
And if life is just a highway, then the soul is just a car
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are

And when the sun descended and the night arose
I heard my father cursing everyone he knows
He was dangerous and drunk and defeated
And corroded by failure and envy and hate
There were endless winters and the dreams would freeze
Nowhere to hide and no leaves on the trees
And my fathers eyes were blank as he hit me again and again and again
I know I still believe he'd never let me leave, I had to run away alone
So many threats and fears, so many wasted years before my life became My own

And though the nightmares should be over
Some of the terrors are still intact
Ill hear that ugly coarse and violent voice

But it was long ago and it was far away, oh God it seems so very far
And if life is just a highway, then the soul is just a car
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are

There was a beauty living on the edge of town
And she always put the top up and the hammer down
And she taught me everything I'll ever know
About the mystery and the muscle of love
The stars would glimmer and the moon would glow
I'm in the back seat with my Julie like a Romeo
And the signs along the highway all said, caution! kids at play!

Those were the rights of spring and we did everything
There was salvation every night
We got our dreams reborn and our upholstery torn
But everything we tried was right
She used her body just like a bandage
She used my body just like a wound
I'll probably never know where she disappeared
But I can see her rising up out of the back seat now
Just like an angel rising up from a tomb

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are

She used her body just like a bandage
She used my body just like a wound
I'll probably never know where she disappeared
But I can see her rising up out of the back seat now

Meat Loaf is truly and awesome performer. He's a large man who looks and sounds like an Opera singer.
We fat people do have much stronger singer voices. I use to sing at the Karaokes back when I still had
transportation to get out in the evenings. I have been tole that I have the voice of an Opera singer.

I have noticed, that since I have put on more weight lately, that my singing voice has become even stronger.

Anyway, speaking of us fat people and music . . . . .

I guess you all can remember a song titled BAD that was sung by Michael Jackson.
Weird Al Yankovic did a satire of that song, and renamed it FAT.

Anyway, here is a really cool You Tube music video with FAT by Weird Al Yankovic

Weird Al Yankovic-Fat

And here are the lyrics to FAT.

Weird Al Yankovic

Your butt is wide, well mine is too.
Just watch your mouth or I'll sit on you!
The word is out, better treat me right,
'Cause I'm the king of cellulite.
Ham on, ham on, ham on whole wheat, all right!

My zippers bust, my buckles break.
I'm too much man for you to take.
The pavement cracks when I fall down!
I've got more chins than Chinatown!

Well, I've never used a phone booth,
And I've never seen my toes.
When I'm goin' to the movies
I take up seven rows!

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, come on!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it.
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, come on you know.
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
Don't you call me pudgy, portly or stout.
Just now tell me once again, who's fat?

When I walk out to get my mail,
It measures on the Richter scale!
Down at the beach I'm a lucky man.
I'm the only one who gets a tan!
If I have one more pie a la mode,
I'm gonna need my own zip code!

When you're only having seconds,
I'm having twenty-thirds!
When I go to get my shoes shined,
I gotta take their word!

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, sha mone!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it you know.
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And my shadow weighs forty-two pounds!
Lemme tell you once again, who's fat?

If you see me comin' your way,
Better give me plenty space.
If I tell you that I'm hungry,
Then won't you feed my face?

Because I'm fat, I'm fat, sha mone!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know.
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
Woo woo woo, when I sit around the house
I really sit around the house!

You know I'm fat, I'm fat, come on!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know it.
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know, you know, you know, come on.
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And you know all by myself I'm a crowd!
Lemme tell you once again.

You know I'm huge, I'm fat, you know it!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, you know, hoo!
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it, you know.
(Fat, fat, really really fat)
And the whole world knows I'm fat and I'm proud.
Just tell me once again, who's fat?

There is another song titled Endomorph by a rock group, Rasputina.

An Endomorph is person who is nice and plump, soft and round, as opposed to
an Ectomorph (tall and slender) or a Mesomorph (muscular athletic build) so
I'm an Endomorph.

And Rasputina has a song titled Endomorph.

This is Rasputina

Now Rasputina is a rather unique rock group. Their music is a combination of rock
and classical and the only instruments they play are cellos!

I have been searching the You Tube videos for Rasputina, and I have found several music
videos for many of their other songs, but I haven't found one for song titled Endomorph.

So, using my Real Player Rhapsody account, I was able to purchase and download a single
music track for a dollar, then I uploaded it to this web site.

It's an mp3 audio, and you might need Quick Time Player in order to listen to the song.

It's a really sweet song. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I have.


And here are the lyrics to ENDOMORPH.


Morning has broken and what do I see
but those same bloody fingerprints following me
it don't pay to be careful don't pay to be nice
So it's backwards and forwards and back again twice
I don't think I'll try it again.

Guilty was all that I felt until now
Go ahead say I'm wrong
but I'm curious how
all you people get up
and then don't arrive late
Do you pray every day
and then patiently wait?
I don't think I'll try again

I'm known as The Endomorph
I'm slow, I go back and forth
I'm known as The Endomorph

Punishment comes for no reason I've seen
then it stays for a while keeping quiet between
what you said would take place
if my big mouth was shut
and I pray every day,
and it's all okay
but I don't think I'll try again.

I'm known as The Endomorph
I'm slow, I go back and forth
I'm known as The Endomorph
I'm known as The Endomorph 
Yeah! That's me alright!

I'm a fat little Endomorph!



Uh! Excuse me, but this web site is my scene! OK?



Here, I will be adding some more of my own web pages to my
brand new web site, and eventually, I will add a guestbook.
So, yo'all keep a comin' back now! Ya hear?

But in the meantime, I have added some links to my favorite Anti-sports web sites and forums at the very bottom if this page. I believe that the over-emphases on sports in our schools is responsible for the declining quality of education in our high schools.

Here is a chart showing how schools in the USA compare with schools in other countries around the world.

I'm 58 years old now, and I can remember when I was in high school back in 1969. My science teacher was also the school's football coach, and during football season, he was too damn busy coaching his team of drooling moronic imbecilic pre-frontally lobotomized baboons to be teaching science in the classroom. So . . . instead he would set up the movie film projector, the turn off the light, go out the door, and leave us sitting in the dark watching a bunch of stupid cartoons. I wanted to learn science DAMN IT!!!

In English Literature class, we played Charades. Our teachers didn't teach jack-shit! My high school was more like a Kindergarten! They had dumbed-down the school curriculum to make it easier for the jocks to get passing grades so they can play football! So, all we did was watch stupid cartoons, play stupid kids games, and learn how to fold paper footballs!

I have no use for football players! Personally, I think that they all should all be ground up and made into lunch-meat to feed the homeless! OK! I'm just kidding! But as you can all see, I truly hate sports with the purplest of passions! I have absolutely no use for sports! Sorry 'bout that! OK???
