Post by: Grammer on August 22, 2009, 04:53:59 pm
Today we learned that wines from down under are excellent. I've not drunk all that much from down there, but every time i've tried something frm Australia or New Zealand or you name it, it's been awesome.

I've also learned that wine is awesome. Now bring on the daffodils!

@ PS3 games: Killzone 2, Resistance 1&2, LBP, Uncharted, and a few other things I'm forgetting. Just be sure to keep an eye out for new releases, because PS3's got a "awkwardly cover your lap with a pillow"-worthy line up coming our way.

I agree! What you did was fair and just! You don't spare mercy to your enemies, those corpses were rotting away and the prisoner probably on death row, those children were probably midget terrorists, and interrogations are always about causing pain until they give in.

Why wouldn't you? Let the players do whatever they want, I say. If it works, fair play to them. If it doesn't, it's still funny.

A couple of players in the Shadowrun group I'm in made a fetish porn video with an NPC politician, then used it to blackmail him.
that's pretty much how I look at it. The problem is the DM of the other campaign is making us follow a storyline. That said she's surprisingly lenient, but things like prostitution are strictly forbidden. My campaign...I have 4 or 5 end goals in mind, which one they end at and how they get there is mostly up to them. I come up with missions for them, they complete them however the hell the want. Ironically, the DM of our other campaign is the one that's playing the 1/2 vamp swashbuckler/hooker.

Oh god...I can totally see my group doing that...except the Warblade would forget that they're supposed to be blackmailing the politician, and decapitate him. Probably while the 1/2 Vamp is 'sleeping' with said politician.

On another note entirely, today I learned there will be a Dr. Horrible Sing-Along-Blog Part 2!!!

Which is why I've got 4 or 5 possible 'endings', most of which allow for a continuation of the campaign. And so far a mission WEB that has over 100 possible missions (and growing)...of which the characters will only be able to do 20-30

hmmm...will have to look into more deeply. ATM it's basicly massive numbers of lvl 1 warriors, with a few casters and archers thrown in. The bad-guys actually come in waves (which I do to give the group time to heal up, since they don't have a healer). The way it's looking now, they're also likely to lvl up 1/2 way through. Which is fine. I always wanted my group to lvl fast early on (it's set during the middle of a war. It makes sense to me that they'd gain XP quickly early on)

Basically, you do your commander or what have you, who is an actual character, then you make a bunch of very weak enemies, that can still attack, but can't take more than one or two hits.

Ah...that's more-or-less what I'm doing. Though in this case, I want a minimum of 100 minions...as I said...large scale...they're supposed to be defending the main gate area of the fort they're stationed at from a smallish attack (lots of foot soldiers, but few siege weapons). Later on their's a decent chance they'll have to defend the same fort from an even larger attack. One involving combat vehicles and siege weapons...and will probably take several sessions to get through. If they end up with that mission, I'm gonna have them fight mobs, instead of individual soldiers

I learned today that I have a career in telemarketing if my teaching career fails. Yesterday, actually.

We were making prank calls on the bus when we were coming back from our drill meet. I woke up in the middle of it because I was distracted by their shitty-ass calls. So I grabbed the number of a bald kid and called him. He's a good sport about it (he doesn't have cancer or anything, he just doesn't grow any hair anywhere) so we thought it would be funny.

"Hello, this is Robert [not my real name, obviously] from Boseley Hair Care Products calling to confirm an order for [insert name here]. We call to confirm such large orders to avoid confusion so if you could please call us back at 1-800-BOSELEY so we can ship your order as soon as possible."

One of the guys said, "Dude, you have the PERFECT telemarketer's voice!"

It's a comforting thought, I guess. But for the next few days I'm answering unknown numbers with "Thank you for calling Boseley Hair Care Products, this is Robert."

And I've been playing TF2 because I also found out that I'm able to play it on my school's internet. Yay!

Linux is the Ikea of computers. You build everything yourself, which is why I've never tried it. I hate coding. You can get Linux or run anything though.

Luckily, there's also a lot of ready-made stuff there, for those of us who can't be bothered to do everything manually. You don't have to know code to use Linux, I don't, but it is an advantage. Though the real advantage is to like to fiddle around with computer stuff. Besides, Linux is very hard to break, as long as you don't delete or mess around to much in the root folders.

What appeared to be a pile of clothes on one stair to another was a boy with a broken back... Severely twisted and deformed... Probably still alive. Corridors of dark blue, with what appeared to be doors to cells, lockers, and a door at the end of one. There I actually thought I've seen this before. I could see past the door a bit and got a sense of fear, reminded me a bit of Monster. Unsure if it was my alarm or an alarm in the dream that woke me up, or forced me to wake.

TIL that my aviation instructor LIED TO ME!

He said landing was one of the easiest assignments. He said steep turns was difficult. He said when you land a Cessna 172, you shouldn't even have to touch the yoke, just adjust the trim and steer using the rudders.

Bah! When I hit that runway at a rate of descent of about 300 feet per minute at 50 knots, I bounced like a rubber ball. Obviously, I didn't do it right. I just can't seem to land that bird without going BOING!

Those struts can't handle the stress! We're going to CRAAAAASH!

Of course, it made me feel better when he--a pilot with over 35 years of experience--rolled a Cessna on landing at an airport in Colorado. Like, didn't just twist it a little. He rolled that motherfucker over on its wings.

Then again, he was only steering with rudder and adjusting pitch with the trim tab, and the airport was at an elevation of like 9,000 feet.

Landing, however...

I mean, if I had to land an airplane, I could do it. I turned crash tolerance on hard and I survived, which means the plane wasn't wrecked. But it wasn't pretty.

However, I ALSO learned that 1% of people are totally douchebags and act like it's all our faults when, in fact, it was the fault of the guy who actually does the cleaning.

Some guy came in tonight and was "OMGWTFBBQ THIS AIN'T RIGHT." He had dropped off three things--two shirts and a pair of jeans. In his bag were three shirts, one of which wasn't his. He was ranting and raving and did all but actually accuse me and the other girl of screwing up.

Luckily, our boss walked in about that time and managed to calm the guy down. Then she came in the back and just said, "That guy was an ass. I'd have no problem if he didn't come back."

From what I understand, the poor guy is just kinda confused and doesn't know what to do with himself now that a girl likes him. He's bouncing between aloof and clingy. She finally told him it was over when he told her he loved her on the first date.

She told me about it and I was like, "Yeah, where's the ejection handle?"
She laughed.

Now, I find it all and dandy, but instead of doing it at the Rec center or the Cafeteria, the morons do it in the fucking library. During finals. Because of them, the library was closed off thus anyone trying to study or writing lost everything because of them and they pretty much destroyed the front lobby. >.>

I'm cool for stuff on campus, but if its going to be retarded, do it BEFORE or AFTER finals. NOT DURING.
Not only that, doing this type of thing can be dodgy in VA (hinthintVThinthint) So, I'm surprised no one was hurt for real.

@ Yut: Flash mob goes: "BANG" and everyone is to fall down, get back up, and then pretend nothing happened. However, when this group of students (over 700), they destroyed school property instead. Instead of just doing how it is in the video I linked, they basically used it to riot. And Since I'm from the state of Virginia, there are stricter laws in regards of what students can do for "pranks and the like" (ie, water guns, fake shootings, etc because of VTech shootings)

So, someone called the cops and the cops maced the library. My friend was studying on the fourth floor and was practically thrown out of the library because of this. Mace travels. It doesn't stay on a person when you spray it like in the movies. It spreads and it will hurt other people than the person it was intended for (just in case you didn't know c:)

It's a shitstorm. I'm heading over to campus tomorrow to see if I can take pics of the damage. I'm sure its nothing, but it's a shitty thing to do before Finals. : /

The way things are going down here, you could move to Georgia. It's been overcast and rainy for like five months straight, and progressively colder. We'll have like two days of sunshine, followed by like two weeks of rain and gray skies.

And it's December. That rain is COLD.

It almost never works that way. I feel fortunate that all my friends are friends with each other and they are all level-headed enough to prevent the "It's me or them" argument, but some people aren't that mature. Hopefully your friend will realize how stupid (s)he is and let you get on with your life and being friends with everyone.

Post by: Achilles on December 17, 2009, 06:04:12 pm
Most of my friends are mature enough not to pull something like this. In fact, the people my friend is trying to make me not be friends with, encourages me to be friends with the friend that's putting me in this situation. Well, I haven't told them about this fiasco, but they were before. Now I just have to figure out what between now and when my friend realizes how stupid they're being. Especially since I don't consider any of the options I see as being acceptable...

TIL that I can function just fine on 1hr of sleep....

Today I also learned that I've lost one of my closest friends. Probably for good. Sorry, but demanding that I chose between her and another friend is unexceptable. In that senario I'll ALWAYS side with the person that actually acts like my friend (IE-not demand that I chose between them and someone else). What's more sad about it is that I'm not really that good of friends with the person that she made me chose between. But I'm extremely good friends with that person's husband.

I've never really cared for Megaman, but awhile ago I was in some store with a bunch of crap, I believe leftovers of stores and such that had closed down, and unsold, unwanted stuff, and I found a megaman action figure, but this one was the original Mega Man I believe, oh, and it didn't say Mega Man, it said Rockman on the box, and it was all in Japanese. At first I thought it was some lame rip off of Megaman.

TIL that my sister's elementary school academic bowl team totally bombed at their first meet.

"What is the only vowel that does not appear in any number between 1 and 99?"
"Uhh, b?"

"What device, invented in the 1960s, could shoot a beam of concentrated light for miles?"
"The sun."
*facepalm*

Not my sisters answer, bee-tee-dubs. She's actually smart, just a little slow on the buzzer.

Today I also learned that my best friend's cousin is a student in the class I'm an intern for. I'm not sure what to make of this. Each day he has come in to class and had to move his clip, which, if you couldn't figure out, isn't a good thing.

@Cobalt: My school once did one of those things between teachers and students in the auditorium, and I half ruined it because I sat in the second row with my feet up and yelled answers. I generally did things like that because the only person who took those little activities seriously were the two girls who pretty much thought everything up.

Third IT WAS SHIPPED BACK TO MY BOYFRIEND because apparently, from Richmond it was supposed to be sent back to my boyfriend's house, but instead continued shipping it to Norfolk despite the large "RETURN TO SENDER" stamps all over it.

TIL that sometimes, victims of extreme torture will, as a defense mechanism, retreat into a mental fantasy land. In this state, they live an ordinary life, insulated from the horrors being exercised on them. However, they subconsciously remain aware of what is really happening to them. Many have reported that if their subconscious feels that they need to act in the real world to save themselves, it can alter the dreamworld subtly in order to get the person to wake up. It can be something as simple as a word in a book to a billboard sign, but either way the brain will let the person know that they need to wake up

He's basicly against gay marrige because he's LDS, and the LDS church is against gay marrige. And all good LDS give money to the LDS church.

He came into the Thrashers came in the 3rd period and within two minutes--real time, not game clock time--was in the penalty box for high sticking, I believe. About thirty seconds after he came out of the box, he was ejected for beating the shit out of one of Florida's players. One of Florida's defensemen pinned one of the Thrashers, so Bogosian grabbed the fucker. Gloves came off in the blink of an eye and the next thing we knew, the refs had Bogosian pinned against the ice to keep him from mauling Florida's player any worse than he already had.

That boy held no punches. I was dully impressed.

Haha, that sounds like Zac. I only hung out with him a few times, I only really watched him play hockey. His older brother was in my class grade, so I would talk to his brother more. I think he's also pissed about the Ilya Kovalchuk trade, who knows? I lost touch with Zac and his brothers when I moved to Virginia.

TIL that I've drank nothing but water, and I still have a headache. Headaches that I usually get are from lack of waterrr. ILU, too body.

I've never heard of a Stainless Keg. That would be rediculusly heavy. and expensive. Aluminium and Steel are the only materials I've heard of kegs being made of.

Regular steel would rust, making the contents bloody horrible. Chances are, it ain't proper stainless, but some other random steel type that also doesn't rust.

It's officially known as "Thrasher Ice Blue." I haven't the faintest idea why they use that blue. I like the color, but I agree with you. It's kinda strange.

It seems like every Atlanta team had something of a red, white, and blue color scheme (except for the Falcons), but then the Thrashers went to the light blue. I dunno, whatever.

Regular steel would rust, making the contents bloody horrible. Chances are, it ain't proper stainless, but some other random steel type that also doesn't rust.
Steal kegs are lined so they don't rust. Far cheaper then stainless, or aluminum for that matter. However, steal weighs enough that shipping becomes prohibative. That said, stainless weighs just as much, is signifigantly harder to work (I'd know. I've made custom stainless flashings and the like), and costs exponensially more. At least aluminum (which has loads of issues of its own when it comes to working it) is light. And, unlike stainless, doesn't become highly toxic when it oxides. Coating steal with a thin plastic film (which is what they do with steel cans) is cheap, and very effective. And non-toxic.

TIL that there are certain spark plug wires you need to use with an engine that has headers.
...a friend of mine replaced my wires some time ago (and screwed up the sequence) and I took it to a mechanic (who reset the firing order) ...and the mechanic didn't notice or didn't bother to mention that I needed the other kind. Took it BACK to the mechanic after I lost power and he said, "Oh, you had a couple of plug wires sitting on the headers and they melted clean through. ...We put a couple more wires on for you." ...Silly me, I assumed that they also tied the @#$! things up and off the headers. ...not so much. THOSE wires also melted through.
BAH!
Bought some (fairly pricey) plug wires that are rated for extreme heat resistance, and I put them on. Not too bad except that my rather large guitarpaws had some minor issues with the two stupid plugs that sit UNDER header pipes.

Today I learned that sometime this next weekend I'm going to go talk to an army recruiter about the possibility of enlisting.

Protip: talk to all the recruiters at the recruiting station before you sign on, if you even do. It's not so much getting a better deal as it is deciding who is the most personable. One of the Army recruiters where I live literally tried to enlist my friend while they were in the bathroom at my school.

This is my friend who has received an Air Force ROTC scholarship to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The recruiter was like, "You're that air force kid, right?"
Justin said, "Yes sir."
Recruiter said, "Yeah, you THINK you're gonna join the air force..."
Justin: "Actually I got an Air Force ROTC scholarship to Embry-Riddle."
Recruiter: "Oh, whatever. Well when that falls through, gimme a call." *walks out*

He's such an arrogant douchebag. I told him I'm going to Georgia State to major in education and he just kinda sneered and said, "I bet you'll be in my office by June."

Uhh, no, asshole. If I join the army, I sure as hell am not going to sign YOUR papers.

Well said, broski, well said. I don't have a problem with smokers; it's the people who can't be tactful about it.

Honestly, I don't care if people smoke tactifully. I've got both friends and family that smoke, but they're polite enough to step away when they do. Even if we're still taking, they make sure they're far enough away that smoke doesn't reach me (much...and frankly, it's the thought that counts).

But it's really inconsiderate to smoke in the middle of a huge group of people, or indoors, or if you smoke really fucking cheap cigarettes that smell like ass.

But it's really inconsiderate to smoke in the middle of a huge group of people, or indoors, or if you smoke really fucking cheap cigarettes that smell like ass. You know what I'm talking about: the ones they don't even keep behind the counter because they'd rather 15-year-olds steal them than people actually try to buy them.
Actually...the guy I work with smoking near me does bother me. Not all the time, but most of the time. See..not only do neither of my parents smoke, but none of their friends smoke, and the only person in my family that smokes is a cousin that I see about once a decade (litterally). So I was never really around cigarettes as a kid. Granted, if the wind is right (I work construction, so I spend most of my time outside), he could be 6" from me and I probably wouldn't notice. However, if I'm down wind of him, the smell really bothers me. Which is odd, because when I started working with him 3 years ago, the smell of cigarettes didn't bother me at all. Now if I smell it for more then a minute or 2, I get physically ill.

The burger example was to underline inappropriate/inconsiderate behaviour, non-smokers. And to quote Bill Hicks: "Non-smokers die every day." I no more smoke in people faces than I would queue barge, shove, or otherwise act like an oaf. It is just simply not done. But enough of this frivolity!
As it's Good Friday here in Blighty I thought I should explain the concept of The Moveable Feast of Easter (the name a corruption of the old fertility goddess Eoster hence bunnies (which should be hares), eggs and Oestrogen). Easter Sunday falls on the first Sunday after the Full Moon after the Vernal Equinox according to the Julian Calendar. This is why it's held on different dates from yrear to year and indeed Church to Church (Roman, Greek, Coptic etc). Why post this? Because I actually find this kind of stuff, as an Unrepentant Geek, interesting.

Pretty much. I don't have one of PS3s shitty mics, so I just hit the mute option when I go into an online game, or turn the voice output volume down, depends on the game. As for 12 year olds on Xbox, I rarely ever encounter any anymore, and it's usually just one or two, so I just mute them, and it depends on the game too, but nobody seems to to even use mics anymore. Personally I prefer 12 year olds because I only really encounter a few at a time, like I said. XD

Guess what he does. Men on second and third, Heyward takes two balls and then smacks a 414-foot home run over the wall of Turner Field. First major league career at-bat. Wasn't a grand slam, but it was close enough: three-run homer to put the Braves up 6-3 over the Cubs in the bottom of the first inning.

Yeah, drivers licensing regulations are kind of a joke. In Georgia, it's permit at 15, Class D license at 16, which carries a 12:00 AM-6:00 AM curfew, no passengers who aren't immediate family members for first six months, no more than 1 non-family passengers for second six months, and no more than 2 non-family passengers until you turn 18, when you get your Class C unrestricted license. It's a good idea in theory, I guess, but when I had my Class D I had passengers all the time. Cops can't pull you over because they suspect you of breaking any of those rules, and half they time they don't even cite you for it. Depends on how big an ass the cop is.

Fuck Joshua's Law, saying you have to have driver's ed to get your license at 16. Driver's ed is good if your teacher isn't a lazy fuck, and your driving instructor doesn't make you drive back-ass roads where the speed limit is 35.

Doesn't matter now, though. I have my unrestricted license. State of Georgia can't do SHIT.

Pinch to zoom out, spread to zoom in, two fingers moved to the left takes you back, and two fingers the right takes you forward. So since the mouse click buttons are so small I had one finger partially on the pad while my other was moving the cursor around on the screen, thus doing aforementioned things, depending how I moved my fingers. XD

Mondays are the official Everything Goes Wrong at Once nights, and having two girls--as smart as they are, and as quickly as they picked things up--constantly calling you over to fix their mistakes does not make it any easier.

Okay, don't get me wrong... the story itself is interesting. But when your teacher stops it every six lines to explain what Hamlet's latest "woe is me/revenge on Claudius" soliloquy meant, it's pretty damn hard to focus. Shit gets kinda repetitive; it isn't hard to figure out what Hamlet's bitching about this time.

Hell yes. I've read three plays so far: Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, and Hamlet. Strangely, the one most people in my graduating class hated the most, Romeo and Juliet, is the one I actually liked.

I thank God and my junior English teacher that we didn't have to read one last year. I guess we didn't because it was American lit, but regardless... however, I was disappointed that we didn't get to read Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. I was looking forward to that. There's an excerpt from it in the Hamlet book, and I had to quit reading because it was making me laugh out loud.

Nah, he's not a pussy, he's indecisive.  Don't look at Hamlet from the "Shakespere is art" point of view, look at from the cynical "Shakespere owned the theater he was writing the plays for and had to maintain audience interest."  As badass as it would have been for Hamlet to stab his uncle in the back and send his doomed soul straight to hell it would have been to short a play if he had.  Hamlet instead prolonged the play by never acting decisively.

They always do it. It's more likely to happen if you are a MALE P plater, more again if you are driving a certain car, more again if you have a full car, and more again if you are driving on certain nights, and more again if you happen to look like a wog lol.

Basically all my male friends have been pulled over, and one of them looks slightly woggish, and he has been pulled over about 6 times in about 3 months, all for no reasons, just because the cops wanted to. (he is in a little two door car that can barely go 80 lol).

No, Chavs here are Bogans (which is also used to describe Rednecks). Wogs are pretty much foreigners.

Around here, guys of any race that are trying too hard are called "Tools, Douchebags, idiots, and Fucking Tards". I will also add things like "Redneck" or "Inbred" if they are southern. Hell, they don't even have to be trying to hard for that one.

Buh dum psh.

In my part of the country, "pikey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pikey)" gets used the most for those sorts of people. When used in context though, I think it just sounds funnier than it does offensive; it's kind of a silly sounding word. *shrug*

Our microwave got passed down/ purchased by the kids who were still living there. Since everyone got a lot of use out of it. We kept selling it for $10 cheaper than we had paid into it. It's a good system and no one ever had to pack it when they moved out.

Notably as Marmaduke is suddenly a talking dog who interacts with mostly other talking animals, is best friends with a cat that I never saw in the series. Marmaduke in name and image, not in soul. Thanks Hollywood.

Mmm... I've lost that since god knows how long ago, but he is hilarious. Some one did that to Family circus for a while but made it far more disturbing.

@HK-47: Yeah they're bastardizing everything possible to make a movie from it. At least Yogi Bear could be done with normal animals and a little CGI with the normal Shenanigans going on. It would be a good ol' movie. Marmaduke? It's like an Alvin and the Chipmunks version with less singing and more dancing. Marmaduke NEVER danced seeing as the comic is only one panel long.

A little CGI? I'm going to instantly fear for the worse and say it's all CGI except for a few humans, because it's Hollywood.

Now I'm speechless.

(Family Circus) If that ever movie ever sees the light of day, I will hitchhike my way to Hollywood and try and hunt down the creators of the movie with a rusty shiv and a scalping knife, hopefully beating you to some of them.

You know, I never knew Family Circus was still around. It's been around as long as Garfield, if not longer, hadn't it? (Since 1977, I guess)
Both should be long gone, just like the sublime Calvin and Hobbes.

Honestly, I don't care about marmaduke (never heard of it until I saw they were making a movie 'based' on it), and I don't see what the big deal is with making a movie based on Yogi Bear. They're making these movies (particularly Yogi Bear) for a generation that has probably never even heard of the original cartoon, much less seen them.

It probably has something to do with the fact that several people at the stadium have gone near deaf because of those things also. Listening to "duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu"

You'd have a "few" thousand bitching south-Africans being angry at Fifa and The South-African government... not caring.
If they (government) stood up to DEFEND these abominations to anything called peace and happiness then most of the world would go
"ಠ_ಠ Seriously?"

I think it's more that a girls will lie to another girl whereas guys just ignore the guys they don't like. All week at camp there was one counselor who was pissing us all the fuck off and we were tolerant of him and his bullshit, but you better believe we talked shit about him when he wasn't around.

True... true.

Talking shit about other guys behind their backs? Been there, done that.
ESPECIALLY about this one douche who lived next to me in the dorm.
By the end of that round of gossip(which wasn't exactly WHISPERED by any means), it almost sounded like we wanted to drag him out into the streets and beat the shit out of him... though deep down we wouldn't have too much against doing that.
Lets just say that it wasn't just loose and baseless rumors we were talking about.

This guy was lazy as fuck and made me sacrifice my off time one day and everyone--not just me--was pissed off about it, which for one made me feel good that they were all on my side. But we definitely notified the summer staff about how big a dick he was being... and then proceeded to talk about how much we wanted him to go in the woods and not come out.

Today, I learned that in a a dealership of 25+ people, who hire janitors, and who "never make a mess"; it is my responsibility to clean up after these people when they DESTROY the fuck out of the lunch room.

I've wiped down the counters everyday this week and each time it was like no one had cleaned up in weeks.
I don't understand why the janitors we hire don't even go up there. There's not a lot they have to do here. 2 washrooms, and a small sales floor. They could clean the lunch room easily and quickly.

why not just talk with your boss? if janitors are dicks you can be a dick too, and im sure that the boss will not be happy about them not doing their jobs.
or he will be a total dick and fire them and keep you cleaning this shit.

Depends on the chainsaw, and what you're trying to cut. Get a high performance chainsaw with a good, agressive chain and it'll make pretty fast work of anything.

Today I learned about some people being Tetrachromats (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrachromacy), meaning they can see either parts of Ultraviolet or Infrared waves.

I don't think anyone has been fully tetrachromatic so that they could see the entire spectrum of that particular wave, but the idea of seeing two images of something simultaneously so that they're superimposed over one another makes my brain hurt slightly. :P

Not really, because the three colors work together to produce a single image and aren't really on "top" of each other, where as seeing an entire other spectrum I think you'd see two different images together simultaneously...I think, not entirely sure really since I'm not tetrachromatic. :P

Obviously they do not realize that they don't weaken Christianity at all. It is like bomb raids on cities under ww2. Doesn't work for the intended purpose which is to weaken the population. It just makes them more determined to have you annihilated.

The purpose of the bombings were actually mainly to crush the fighting spirit of the enemy.
The amount of money for production of bombs, replacement of dead pilots and destroyed aircrafts really wasn't worth 43 000 dead. Especially since the bombings only made resistance that much fiercer.

Not sure if this is where to put this, but today I got into a car crash. The day right after I got my license. I ran into a lady with a baby in the car, didn't see her coming at all. Luckily, nobody is hurt aside from the normal bruises. The baby was laughing a few minutes after it happened. However, needless to say of someone who has never been in a car crash, I turned into an emotional, weeping, hyperventilating mess. Before I saw the baby I was just stunned. When she pulled it out, I started crying. She was a nice person though, didn't yell at me or anything. She actually gave me a hug afterwards.

Now my mother's Trailblazer is in the shop, and will be fixed in about 2 weeks. It'll cost about $2,800 to get fixed, but due to the magic that is auto insurance, my mother only has to pay $500. But now my insurance rates will jump, and yeah. My parents were very supportive of me, there was no scolding, just a lot of hugging and comforting. I'm very lucky that what happened wasn't the worst of what could've happened. Neither car is completely totaled, and they should both end up fine. I think.

So now, despite the fact that I've been told it's okay and that everything's fine, I'm sore, sad, and feel like a failure. And the most evil bitch on the planet. I sort of want to crawl into my bed and never leave.

The proper way to apply Axe is as follows:

1. Spray any amount anywhere on your body. Your choice.
2. Wait in your room three to four hours, until the smell stops being obnoxious and works like a regular cologne.
3. Go about your business.

Essentially what I did was make her realize that all the people she thought were her friends really just talked shit about her and considered her the least intelligent person in our group of friends, of which she wasn't really a part.

Actually, outlawing batons makes as much sense as outlawing any other weapon. In the hands of someone that knows what they're doing, a baton can break important bones, or even rupture vital arteries with relatively little force. You might not be able to break a mans arm with a baton, but you can sure as hell break every bone in their hand in one or 2, fairly low powered hits. Smack someone on their neck pressure points, and you could put them down for a while. On the wind pipe, you could crush it much more easily then with a bat (partly because you can swing a baton much more accurately, and quickly then a bat). Hit them on the temple (an impossibly small target for most people to hit with a bat, but a fairly large target to hit with a baton) and you could kill them pretty much on the spot. Bats, contrary to popular belief are only really useful as intimidation weapons. I'd take a carpenter's axe or even a short piece of rebar (the axe, I own, and the rebar would be easy for me to get my hands on) over a baseball bat any day.

TIL I've put way too much thought into which everyday tools (well..every day tools fr anyone that works construction) would make superb weapons, and which ones wouldn't.

uhh. no shit. How many different ways do I have to say that it doesn't make sense to me? My point, as I already said, was that outlawing most weapons doesn't make sense (rocket launchers and what not...yeah, I can see outlawing those) because once you start down that road you can outlaw litterally anything. A prybar is no less deadly then a baton, and yet anyone can buy a prybar. A nailgun is no less deadly then a handgun, yet once again, pretty much anyone can buy one.

Not true. Any nail gun with adjustable depth (IE-pretty much any framing nailer made within the last 2 or 3 years, and most other nailers) is extremely easy to by-pass the safety on, because the depth adjustment is directly on the safety (and, due to the way it adjusts depth, HAS to be there). So you just reach down, grab the adjustment nob, pull back, and squeeze the trigger. Gets a little more complicated if it's a nailgun that only shoots sequential (you have to let off the trigger and safety, pull the safety again, THEN pull the trigger), but most framing nailers you can chose between sequential, and traditional semi-auto. We have a Milwaukee framing nailer at work like that, and it's 3 years old. Older nailguns are actually harder to bypass the safeties on. There's even a few companies that make 'cordless' nailguns that use propane canisters and a small sparkplug instead of compressed air.

Course, easy way around the safety is use a pin nailer. Because they're for finish work, pin nailers never have a touch-safety. If they have one at all, it's just a trigger lock (pretty much identical to a firearm).

You know what was really awesome? Star gazing. There was quite a lot of clouds but some beautiful stars too.
The only sign of civilization was slightly reddened clouds in the horizon.

What? How exactly does that work?  I have my concealed carry license for Oklahoma and you're still not permitted to carry into a bar unless you carry for work related purposes (private detective, bodyguard, policeman) and even then you can't have a sip of alcohol and then discharge that firearm because it'll be your ass.   

Same, except mine is for Alabama. If you have one in a bar, consider yourself fucked.

Today I learned what a Narthex, Nave, and Transept (http://www.kencollins.com/glossary/architecture.htm) are.

I don't know of many churches that still actually use those terms. Most of them are just like "DA SANCTUARYYYY" when referring to the whole church and I'm like "no bitch the sanctuary is the area around the altar you need to educate yo'self."

TIL that parents of mentally handicapped children are highly protective. This lady came to the cleaners and she had her daughter who is diagnosed Down's syndrome. I had a pleasant conversation with her daughter (she was like eight, and she asked me my name, where I went to school, where I graduated from, etc). When she and her mom left she shouted "BYE!" so I smiled and waved. But the entire time her mother was giving me this 'eat shit and die' look. Like, what the fuck.

Maybe she was just a bitch, I dunno, but she's never done that before.

I'm not very good at pep talks so I won't attempt a whole speech here, but here's one thing I can say:
Don't feel guilty because you're depressed. Yeah, you're no fun and you keep thinking about yourself. Depressed people do that. Because they need it. It's ok to be emo, as long as you do your part in finding out how to get better.

(I'm saying that because some people see being depressed as selfish or otherwise condemnable. Well they're wrong. Take care of yourself, you'll be a better asset for society after you're better. Everybody wins.)

Agreed, it's perfectly fine to be 'emo' or 'depressed' sometimes (though it's not fun). As long as you realise it, and work towards getting through it and continuing on with life. It's when people decide to just stay there, forever for whatever reason, that it becomes a bad thing.

Pretty much everyone loves attention to some degree.
Though in my head there is a difference in the sort of attention you can get and want:
"look at me" attention(which I absolutely hate on my own part) and then being recognized when it comes to things such as arguing, performing and such.

The attention whores don't really care what attention they get, as long as they get attention(I actually think there is a name for that) and a lesser degree of that is trying to get attention in order to be "liked" by people, but that by any means necessary.
Considering how I wish to be a teacher, I'll probably have to spend the rest of my working life dealing with that kind of individuals.
On my own part, I like "attention" for doing something good or for presenting interesting views and arguments for views.

Of course, I like the "joker" attention(who doesn't) but mostly just within my circle of friends and not on the cost of someone else all the time(like these other people I grew up with constantly did).

Post by: Dodom on October 16, 2010, 06:43:28 am
Well, in the case of Lady Gaga, admittedly I didn't see a lot from her since I lack interest in music in general, but from the little I saw, the impression I got was that she enjoyed what she did, and someone who does music for about ten years before being known has to love plainly doing music, loving stardom and all that crap too doesn't erase that.


To be honest, I don't like celebrity bashing in general.
You know that Justin Bieber hating? That's scary. The boy is filling a job in a business that produces cheap easy to sell pop music. I wouldn't punch the guy at McDonald's because his burgers aren't real food, so why a different attitude with cheap pop stars? Hate the industry if you want, but the individuals that work in it aren't rapists and murderers. They make silly fucking music for a living, and if they enjoy doing it, well good for them!

When it comes to Justin Bieber, what I hate is what a pawn he is. In other words, I hate the pop industry.
When it comes to "dislike of Justin Bieber" directly then it is mostly when he appears to have absolutely no dignity.

Nail polish. NAIL POLISH!!
He is a teenage boy, just slightly younger than me and he is going to market for NAIL POLISH!?
And zit cream.

I'd think of him as brilliant in "supply and demand" if it only was so that he actually does anything.
But he is a pawn. He'll end up like all them boybands.

Post by: Dodom on October 16, 2010, 07:19:39 am
Of course... exactly like the guy who makes burgers at McDo's isn't going to create anything new through that job. And I don't like McDo's burgers. So... I don't buy any. I don't buy any Justin Bieber albums, either. If somebody with me likes either, I could say "eww I find that gross," but it's ultimately their business, they won't gain much if I convince them it's crap. And I'd be even less justified to argue it out with the people who make these products, since they actually make a living out of it.
Yeah, what Justin Bieber currently does isn't art, but it's a honest job nonetheless.
That a large enough amount of people have low enough standards in culture for pre-made pop-stars to be an industry is a problem, I won't deny that, but that problem isn't with the people providing the service.


Title: Re: What did we learn today? (Apart from that australian wine rocks.)
Post by: BrainBlow on October 16, 2010, 07:41:11 am
Can certainly agree to that.

Today I learned that trees learn. When you plant an european tree in Canada, at first it behaves like an european tree, but after about 40 years it learns Canada's season pattern and times itself with them. The most noticeable difference is the time at which the leaves fall; trees that are adapted to a longer summer "assume" that autumn is just a few cold days that will end soon, but after a few dozen repeats they begin treating it like autumn.

At least you have self-respect, in that you won't drink beer just because it's beer.
Beer is to be tasted, savored, enjoyed, not chugged in an attempt to get balls-out wasted.  :monocle:
That's what cheap liquor is for.
I can't stand liquor. expensive or anything. However, one of my favorite beers is a microbrew made not far from where I live. $6 for a 6-pack, compared to $8 for budweiser. And the microbrew is better. But yeah...I like beers that are flavorful. And I like trying new beers. I only drink mainstream (or at least, mainstream in Southern California) beers like MGD, Bud, etc when I want to get drunk. And I try not to drink when I feel like that.

From what I've heard, microbrews are the best, but they're somewhat more difficult to get a hold of when you're underage. There's a great bar in Atlanta called Clearwater Brewing Company that I've heard makes the best beer in Georgia, but it's all draft.
I think my favorite beer is Yuengling. It's damn good and not all that much more expensive than the mainstream beers like Miller, Budweiser, etc.

TIL that Cam Newton's (quarterback at Auburn and as of right now frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy) father is the pastor at a church not far from my house. Well damn. I just may have to stop by there some time.

There's good microbrews, and bad miccrobrews. Good main-stream beer, and bad mainstream beer. One of my favorite beers is Guiness Extra Stout (one of the oldest beers you can get). Another is Blackout Stout, which is made by a micro that's about 30 miles from where I live. On the other hand, Budweiser (obviously, about as mainstream as you can get in the US) is horrid, and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is one of the worst beers I've ever tasted (made by a microbrewery in Chino California).

I kinds wish that Concerta (well, methylphenidate in general) could keep me up a bit.
I don't find it all that effective against narcolepsy, I have difficulty telling if it works at all. There is an effect, but I can't tell if it's globally positive.

Timeline in minutes:
0: *takes 5 mg* (that's a minuscule dose btw)
10: Hands feel stiff and move very slowly... having trouble grabbing tickets out of wallet pisses off the bus driver.
15: I wanted to read in the bus but I really can't focus.
20: Rapid eye movements and hallucinations! Woo, half of my brain is asleep and didn't bother telling the other half!
25: Zzzzzzzz
30: Fully awake, no problems moving. I didn't miss my stop!
120: Muscle tone dies; back hurts.
180: 0_0 was I sleeping just now? Why am I so cold?
181: Uh no I wasn't sleeping but my mind is blank. What were you talking about?
200: Zzzzzzzz so cold zzzzzzzz
220: Sleepy, cold, hate the world, cold, so very cold. *gets coat*
240: Normal again, may or may not fall asleep in the next hour. *all sweaty from wearing coat indoors*

See, there is that 30-180 period where I'm more awake than usual, but with the two "downs" I'm not fully sure it's worth it.

What Taekwondo?
Traditional or sports based? There is apparently a lot of difference.

My best friend was a scraggly little nerd and then went three years on sports based Taekwondo and came back looking like some experienced bouncer. He is half a year younger than me, yet people commonly mistake him for being 19(even when he was 15).

My older brother is going traditional.
Only been there since August though. But it is pretty heavy training according to him. (and he was already pretty fit when he started)

Make sure the glue doesn't cover the wound itself, when I stuck a cut shut on my hand (it was pretty deep too, I could see my bones) the edges of the skin would easily soak up moisture and that's probably risky for infections, so I had to find a way to apply scotch-tape without covering the wound.

this cut is almost to the bone...superglueing the wound itself shut would keep air from getting down in the cut, thus slowing healing.

And that's understandable. I know that sports aren't everyone's thing.
But why do they insist on letting everyone know how much they hate them, and how they think they're superior because they hate sports?
I saw a video on YouTube of this truther douche ranting and raving about how all sports fans are blind and ignorant. He said, and I quote, "I'd be willing to be not a single sports fan watching this video could name their mayor, their senators, their governor, or their representatives."

I felt trolled, but I'm pretty sure he was serious.

I actually just saw a website advertising it. Three Olives vodka.
That's actually what we were drinking for New Year's Eve, except it was regular vodka, not the root beer or tomato or any of that other stuff Three Olives makes.
Actually I didn't drink it, because I was pretty much guzzling coconut rum, but my friend who brought it said it was pretty good, and I've read good reviews about the root beer-flavored stuff.

The other day (not today) I learned how truly terrified I am of sharks and open water. I went jetskiing with two of my friends (one of them has a license). We went from Cleveland Point to Peel island, about a 20-30 minute trip across open water. On the way there it was fairly calm, no waves or anything, lots of fun. Then I got to drive it when we got to the island (so I learned how to drive a jetski, which isn't hard at all). Then by the time we decided to head back to Cleveland Point, there were lots of waves. Lots. We capsized twice, out in the open sea where there are sharks, and the entire trip I was freaking out so badly ._.

Post by: Rampito on January 24, 2011, 04:39:19 am
It's very intimidating, like, huge stretches of water wherever you look. And the thing is, when we capsized, the jetskii would keep going for a while till it decelerated to a stop, so it was maybe 10-20 metres away. I'm actually quite a good swimmer, but still, shit's scary. And my friend decided to make jokes about it (of course) and he was totally relaxed. I was holding on to the damn thing so tight the entire way that now my muscles ache so much that I can't extend my arm fully, and it's been like that for a few days now.

On the bright side, Jetskiing is really really fun. When I was driving I went up to 80 km/h, jumping the waves and doing turns and all that awesome stuff. 80km/h really doesn't seem that fast in a car, it's crazy how much of a difference the lack of a windshield makes. I admit I would go out there all the time if I had my own Jetski, but only in optimal weather conditions.

Because calling the cops for something you could stop by asking is official sanction for being passive-aggressive!

(also depending on who is having that party they might react violently to being criticised; but that's an entirely different set of problems, and I tend to expect it more from adults than teens)

If the police arrive you stay the fuck inside. They can't come in unless you open the door for them. (That's how it is in America, anyway.) Until then they have no probable cause. I was sitting in the living room upstairs almost staring a cop in the eyes as he knocked on the door and he couldn't do shit about it.

The first party I went to was at a house in the middle of the woods, and even then the house itself was several hundred yards off the road with no neighbors. I think probably what happened was that somebody knew about the party and called the police just to be a buzzkill, or somebody associated with the school saw it on Facebook and called the cops.

The second party got broken up because there is a taxi driver who is notorious for informing the police of a big party whenever someone calls her for a ride home. It's gotten to a point that most of the fraternities don't let you call a taxi for a ride home, you just have to bring a designated driver. Unfortunately whoever called the taxi last night didn't know that rule.

TIL that small-town taxi drivers are scum.

The first cop that showed up was actually like that. He said that it was in any underage person's best interest to leave because there were nine state patrolmen coming to start checking IDs and breathalyzing people, so he let us get out as long as we had a sober driver.

But the drinking laws in this country are fucking retarded. The campus police here have nothing better to do than bust up parties. I guess that's what happens when you go to a small university. I'm actually writing a paper for my American government class about how lowering the drinking age would be better for this country.

TIL that because the school I go to is a state-run university, the campus police actually have the same power as state patrol officers as opposed to the same power as, say, city police or county deputies. That's probably why the city where the school is doesn't even have a city police force, it's just university cops and county deputies.

nah, the way i see it, college is a place that is supposed to teach you things. not morals, knowledge. so all that college should be concerned about, should be their courses. not what they do after school. if they fail classes? ok, kick them out, they are either too lazy or too dumb to be there. kick someone out, or even make him trouble for doing something for fun? retarded.
crime should be chased by police.
meh, i dont understand why is that the way it is over the pond. here college students are adults, and are treated as such by everyone with its upsides and downsides.

When you think about it, they're not just breaking the law, they're breaking the campus rules.

I totally get campuses not allowing drinking, what with all of the shit that can come from it (lawsuits, etc). It's not so much "You shouldn't be drinking because it's bad", it's more "Don't fucking drink in my house."

But the dude getting in trouble for not reporting anything is major bullshit.

Not really Stan. Science require a good amount of math, you'd find it harder if it wasn't fresh in your memory.


Also: Democracy means that if a majority of a given population is uncomfortable with others doing things they don't approve of, they have the power to repress it. Who demands harsh penalties of their government will tolerate it from their private institutions too. Americans like boundaries more than the rest of us; of course we don't have to approve, or to pretend we do, but ultimately their culture and institutions are up to them.

What I find most deplorable with it is not the rules per se but how disproportionate punishment is seen as perfectly normal. There's a line between enforcing the rules and power tripping, and the present case crossed it largely.
I can perfectly understand not wanting pot in the rooms, because it's a fire hazard and stinks up the place, just like cigarette. It belongs outside or in places that have the matching insurance plan. (yes, you have to pay extra to insure a building where smokers live) But you also have sane ways to deter that.

The college I'm now going to has been dealing with the most common infractions by posting reminders of the rules involved at the entrances. The message it gives is "what you've been doing has been noticed" and that is enough for most people to think twice. If punishment is the first thing attempted, it doesn't leave much room for a plan B...

That tuition fees amount to a sizable portion of colleges' funding (and therefore too expensive for students to pay themselves) in the US is part of that system's poor reputation; if it has been exagerated, then you're welcome to put it in perspective, but it would explain the current matter.
And he US is infamous for its voucher system, which does make schools dependent on popularity as absolutely as pure private funding and is a subject to horror and mockery for its favouring of religious and ideological slants that sacrifice education to flattering the parents' beliefs.
"We're going to sack you at the slighest transgression" is not very sexy to the students, nor does it contribute to a healthy learning atmosphere, but "we're going to keep your kids in line when you can't watch them directly so you never have to learn to trust them" is appealing to a different market...


Edit: Also, sorry about derailing the thread; something that didn't make sense to me suddenly does, and if it's actually false I'd rather know why rather than leave on a false conclusion.

I'm a product of private schooling in the US and a parent of student.  I'm very fortunate that the township we live in has a very well regarded public school system that my tax money pays for, but I choose the additional expense of sending my son to a private school. 

The voucher system, in my opinion, is a great idea and wish it was more widespread in the US.  Letting parents choose where and how a child is educated is much better than letting the government decide.  Unfortunately it looked upon by many in the US as "unfair".  Just because the money is channeled through the families doesn't mean the families all have the same options because of location, schedules, etc.  The problem is where people draw the line on equality.  But I digress.

As for private schools catering to parents beliefs, sure they do, but they are also universally accepted as better institutions for learning than the publicly funded schools in the US.  A huge portion of their money coming from donations from alumni.  Most private colleges make more from alumni donations (or corporate donations) than from tuition.

lastly, as for schools enforcing rules one rule breakers and people that "know" about infractions.  The bottom line is, they don't want to get sued.  Litigation is way out of hand and if some students know about an infraction, don't report it, and someone doing the infractions gets injured (physically, emotionally, whatever) and sues, the school will be found at fault because they didn't know.  So punishing the non whislte blowers hopefully (from the schools perspective) encourages students policing eachother.

Sorry, I thought we were talking about University level. If we're going to go into secondary schools, then that's an entirely different can of worms. I must say that thankfully, that atrocity known as the voucher system isn't wide-spread where I live. I'm a product of the California Public Education system, and proud of it. I've had a problem with private schools for years, and time has only increased my dislike of them. The voucher system, allows parents to take students from public schools that are perceived to be bad (note that how much a funding a school gets is based on their attendance. Take students away from a bad school, the funding dries up, and as a result the quality of education drops further), and put them in a school that is paid for by mommy and daddy. Well, and now by the government. The HS I graduated from is small, and always has been. The largest graduating class from that HS was 83 students. I had a graduating class of 15. That school has been on the verge of closing for years. It's only thanks to very inventive money expenditure that it's not. Now imagine if a bunch of parents were to use vouchers to take their kids to other schools (there's 1 public school in the town I live in, and 3 or 4 in the next town over, about 30min away). In large schools, the impact might not be that significant. In small schools, it is. And in school districts where funding is already a problem (which is most of them), even a large school district would feel the impact fairly quickly.

As for someone getting expelled from college for not turning in their roomates, I don't know what college that is. I have a hunch that the person getting expelled has other infractions on their record that we don't know about. Certainly I've never heard of a first offender getting expelled for not turning in their friends at any college in CA. I had friends that got caught at a dorm party in which there was underage drinking. One of my friends was drinking, but a couple weren't. The ones that were drinking got put on probation (basicly, if they were caught drinking again, they'd be expelled), while the ones that weren't drinking didn't get so much as a slap on the wrist. This was at Cal Poly Pomona (which is part of the CSU system). Heck, one of my roomates while I was there got caught smoking pot in the parking lot, and the school didn't take any action against him. He got the usual punishments for possession, but that's it.

Last bit (promise): Dodom, the 'bad rep' that US colleges have is actually rather funny to me. I just looked it up, and on 2 different "top 100 univiersities in the world" lists, nearly 1/2 the colleges listed are in the US. Granted, just under 1/2 of those are private, but even so, I don't see how you can claim that US colleges are any worse then colleges in other countries.

I go to a military college. I'm not a part of the Corps of Cadets, but it's still the Military College of Georgia.
They've been out on the drill field practicing with automatic weapons since about 6:00 this morning (blanks, of course). There's also a rifle range (not blanks) not too far away from one of the dorms, and the people who live in that particular dorm are always complaining about being woken up by the gunfire.

They may be blanks, but that doesn't change the fact that the campus sounds like a fucking war zone.

I think a harem is a group of wives/concubines of a single man. And as for "harem ending", I'm just assuming "ending" is "death" and this: in a few(?) religions, they believe that when a man dies, he gets a harem. Maybe he does something "great" to get it when he dies.

I'm just spewing stuff forth from my brain; I don't know if what I said is true- I'm too lazy to open another window to research it and post my findings. :P

If concubines means bitches, then I can second it. And... that means that Yut... can gain a harem now, in the living, and then get a harem ending, in death, thus having both a harem in the living and dead and bitches for all eternity.

And Yut, get that harem death ending by being great by getting a harem in the living.

According to this definition of concubine (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/concubine)...
Quote
1. a woman who cohabits with a man to whom she is not legally married, especially one regarded as socially or sexually subservient; mistress.
2. (among polygamous peoples) a secondary wife, usually of inferior rank.
3. (especially formerly in Muslim societies) a woman residing in a harem and kept, as by a sultan, for sexual purposes.


And... HAREM! (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/harem) Just 'cause
Quote
1. the part of a Muslim palace or house reserved for the residence of women.
2. the women in a Muslim household, including the mother, sisters, wives, concubines, daughters, entertainers, and servants.

Because I know HK is an avid gamer I always took the "harem ending" to be equating life to being a game wherein once you amass your harem there is no point in playing anymore because you literally cannot improve upon your position.  Personally I find the concept of a harem to be VERY high maintenance and probalby a giant PITA.

Band will get you little, math will get you more.

Also, in the past two days I've learned that College is really really fucking college.

Like, In the most neutral way I can say that. My dorm life is fun, Most of my classes are teaching me information that I am genuinely interested in, the homework rush hasn't really started yet. I do know that college teachers are a whole hell of a lot lazier than high school teachers.

"Alright, so, what you do is decide a topic to write a paper on, and then you turn that paper in to this website that auto corrects it and checks it for plagiarism. If you have any questions on what we will be doing throughout this course, look at this paper. If you have any questions, look in this book. If you need to talk to me, email me. If you need me to do any kind of work, I'll probably be too busy."

That's not necessarily true.
I have a friend who is a music major at a private university, and the music work is killing her. She has to practice six hours a day, not including class instruction time, and her professors can immediately tell if she skipped any practice.

I don't know to what extent Stan is involved in the music program, but college band isn't as easy as some people assume.

Uni is very different to college, at least here in Australia. Sure if you were going to uni for music, it means your studying it at a very high level, and you're going to need to put a lot of effort into it (as you do with everything at uni).

I don't assume music is easy, as a creative person, I don't assume any of the arts are easy, I'm just going by what Stan seems to be saying, which is that he is having  a lot more trouble with math, which in the long run, will more likely help him getting into either further study or work, so maybe missing a few lessons of band to catch up on math might be a good idea.

I didn't see very far into the show at all. I don't know if that was Cartoon Network's fault or my own for thinking the show was becoming too silly with the voice-activating transformations, and therefore stopped watching it, or what. What I do know was that this show had inspired me to start drawing as a hobby.

TIL on Wikipedia that there is so much more to this show than I thought there was. And the English version has left out episodes/scenes from the Japanese version, just like what happened with the "more tame" English version of Dragon Ball Z.

Edit: I haven't yet found any news articles talking about DNA testing. In fact, the articles don't really say too much about this. For all we know, the US military could have captured someone that looks just like him and killed him. :P

Whether it's normal or not depends on how your parents handled it when they "busted" him for looking for soft porn at an age where it's normal to look for soft porn.
If he was punished harshly for exploring his sexuality in the most harmless way possible, and therefore can't trust his family with his feelings or questions on the subject, then yeah, getting weird about it is a pretty usual outcome.
I sincerely don't find it normal to consider looking up "naked beautiful women" worthy of mention at all and worry about your familial environment.

If they were yours, then yeah, it's weird.

Anyhoops, as far as I know boys don't usually keep women's underwear. So if they are there, then it is possible that he may well have been wearing them. You've got to decide for yourself if you want to know, but if you do, don't be harsh about it. Be friendly and approachable, and at least try to be understanding. So what if he does like wearing women's underwear? It's a harmless fetish, and a lot less creepy (and potentially dangerous) then plenty of other kinks that are out there.



Note: The above is assuming they're not your underwear. If so, feel free to go mad.

Yeah, when I was twelve, I was a perv. That's actually when it started. A lot of people, when they hit a certain age, just go "GOD DAMN IT I WANT TO FUCK EVERYTHING EVER".

@ Dodom
I didn't think he'd "start so soon" at 11 (when he tried looking up "naked beautiful women"). My 15-year-old brother, as far as I know, hasn't done anything like that (or had gotten caught, for that matter). As for being punished, I'm sure my parents would have sat him down, talked with him and maybe took away computer privileges for a while.

@ Cheez
I don't think I should ask him. I know he'll deny it and/or get upset at my mom for embarrassing him for telling me about it. Whatever was going with that underwear (especially if it was mine), I hope it went back into the wash. If he liked looking at it, he could have just taken the store ads from the paper and kept THAT in his room instead of taking somethings that didn't belong to him. I bought more yesterday, I hope I don't have to worry about them getting taken. Lol. .__.

@ Log
I know adolescents do develop libido (and there's a matter of controlling it), and I know our religious background discourages us from "doing anything about it", but I don't know if my parents have informed him of this or not. And I guess guys are more horny at an earlier age than girls, if I remember correctly.

@ Papa Cricco
I don't know about that. The laundry gets folded in the living room and placed into piles according to whom it belongs. If it was a mistake, I'd assume he would have brought them down from his room... unless he was too lazy.

That's more like, sneaking into your friend's house while they're not home and taking some of their cheese from their refrigerator without letting them know. And the reason why the friend finds out you took some of their cheese is because they helped you put your groceries away, and they found their cat's fur stuck to it (just like at home).

I really don't want to have to catalogue my things, but I can't seem to find some of my stuff I haven't seen in a long time... XP
Edit: Maybe I threw them out. I can't remember. But dammit, I'm paranoid now.


TIL: I know that America (and sometimes Canada) spell some things quite differently than other English-speaking countries, but I found some different spellings I didn't know before. Tire == tyre, diarrhea == diarrhoea, skeptic == sceptic (here, I was thinking that since this is spelled closely to "scepter/sceptre", it must be pronounced like "septic" lol), and curb == kerb. But when we get to defense/defence, license/licence, canceled/cancelled, acknowledgment/acknowledgement, and judgment/judgement, I want to go with the British/Australian/South African/New Zealand way of spelling.

Today I learned that Yoshi (the new baby iguana) is impressively healthy. The only thing the vet found wrong with him is that he could use more baths (iguana skin likes water) but aside from that, he's everything an iguana should be. No infections, no parasites, strong bones, strong, fleshy limbs, very energic and obviously interested in his surroundings. He still has to learn to trust humans more before he can be an epic iguana, but he's on the right way.
