Time Travel

Suppose for a moment you could time travel. Lamers ask, "Whom would you meet?" Cool people ask, "Whom would you kill?"

If you could go back in time, and could only use it to kill a historical figure, who would it be, and at what part of his/her life would you do it?

I suspect that "Hitler; before he killed everybody." will be a popular answer.

Everything I need to know I learned from watching Lost

Lost Rule #1: Never, ever, give any information to anyone, for any reason.

There are some exceptions to this. If you're talking with an enemy, you can feel free to give them all the information you know.

If you're talking to someone you like, though, the process is a little bit tougher. The only allowable way of transmitting information is to offhandedly allude to it. When someone asks what you mean, you have to act like it isn't important. Later, when they ask again, you can explain what you meant.

Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Watching Lost

Lost Rule #2: If you're going to do something, anything, make sure to bring someone along with you. Don't plan or think about it. Just look around and grab the nearest person, or the person least fit to help you. They might ask you why, so here's some key explanations:

1. "We need an extra pair of hands."
2. "I'm a shameless cocktease." (lookin' at you, Kate!)
3. "You can make up for the time you totally screwed up the last expedition."

PS3 Chip Shortage! Gasp!

PS3 announced a while ago that they were suffering from a chip shortage, and that they would be short on PS3s when the product finally launched. What a coincidence that this happen with every console that Sony releases.

I feel that I can predict the future, as, before I even knew the name of the PS3, (By the way, what an awesome name.) I was predicting that they would have a "chip shortage".

They know how the market works, and they are shameless about exploiting it.

Doesn't really affect me though, as I intend to get a Wii, and maybe a 360 around then so as to play Halo 3.

iTunes is blue now. The only other difference, as far as I can tell, is that it loads up slower. Quite a bit slower, actually. I'm actually typing this up as I wait for it to start.

There it goes.

Anyway, iTunes becomes the most system intensive after you close it, for about a minute. It's rather strange.

Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Watching Lost

Lost Rule #3: If you're doing anything more exciting than talking about the weather, you should probably point a gun at whoever you're talking to. It shows that you're serious.

Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Watching Lost

Lost Rule #4: Anyone can knock anyone else out by hitting them in the head. This will never cause anything but a headache, if that.

The Stephen Colbert Hid

Stephen Colbert won the vote. The world has gone completely mad, or it has finally got a sense of humour.

That, or a relatively poorly known country has decided to ride the coattails of the host of a Comedy Central program.

Personally, I'm in favor of the "world gone mad" theory.

The Pope: "Violence Used to Spread Religion"

So, the Pope's in hot water for claiming that Muslims used violence to spread their religion during the early days of their faith. What a strange thing to say.

In their early days, all religions have to use violence, just to avoid getting their butts kicked. If they want to spread, it is completely necessary to use violence. If you read the Old Testament, it seems that the early Jews did little other than run around and kill people of competing faith.

Anyway, it is a little tasteless to point out Islam's violent proclivities without pointing out that it's as common as dishwater. He is the Pope though, it's not as though he's going to start ragging on Christianity for being violent.

In the words of Stephen Colbert, don't mess with this guy. You know how powerful popes are, just imagine how powerful a Nazi Pope must be.

Santa has no Elves

Santa's helpers are clearly not elves. Santa's helpers are gnomes.

The End.

100 Posts!

Hooray, I have made 100 posts to this weblog. In celebration, I will alienate any of you that actually still go here by linking you to something that will make you hate me.

This is the greatest thing in the history of files.

Lost, Season II

I finally got Lost season II. I have a new theory about the show: the people who made it have no plan.

It's my understanding that these are the same people who made Twin Peaks; they also didn't have a plan for it, although they claimed they did.

Anyway, the director has openly stated that psychic powers exist, and once you allow magic, it's impossible to guess what's going on. Unless it fits into some larger framework.

Back In Class

Well, the worst part of the year is here. School has begun again, and its end is so far away it is out of sight. Yet again we suffer thru the endless, tedious sessions, waiting for time to pass.

I think that if I were not employed thru the school, I wouldn't stay at the U. It is an exercise in staying awake, and little of it contributes to my actual education. I think I learn more out of class than in it.

Character #4: Solved

So, after a whole lot of pestering, someone finally got around to solving character #4. Congratulations, Jeff.

Character #3 remains unsolved.

I'll have another character up soon.


The Crocodile Hunter is dead.

Steve Erwin seemed to be a fun guy, and now he's dead. Surprisingly, not killed by a crocodile, but by a stingray. I think we can use this moment to rededicate ourselves to environmentalism.
