For the geeks and aspiring sci-fi writers, I stumbled onto this.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/ ... NETTXT6966

Basically, the article draws attention to what a bunch of fellow nerds (with Ph.Ds) thought vis a vis first contact with aliens, in beneficial, neutral, and malicious terms. The full report is here: http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1104/1104.4462.pdf

That'd mean we're as evil as the Earthmen from PS2... but we aren't... are we?

This plucky little planet, probably made of diamond, orbits a pulsar: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/08/ ... 9A20110825

Just my luck that I go through all the trouble of scheduling a POD and arranging to move the weekend that a hurricane decides to head up towards New England.

You know what? I'm looking forward to the Fate/Zero and Persona 4 animes this fall season. I can't wait for them to come out. I'll be watching them religiously every week. I can't even remember the last time I did that!

To make up for the musical abortion above, Youtube randomly played an instrumental/song our dear Amy shared with us some time ago. yay! ^_^

In a laboratory with NOTHING TO DO...

Things that come to my mind are several... The bunch of reports I have to hand over, illustrations I haven't finished, stuff that I wanna buy but can't, a departed person that I miss each and every day and how maybe I should drop everything I have here and GTFO of the country and go to another place... But I won't, because that place I have in mind is actually a dump...

Also, my large, yet controlled anger at a fellow poster...

Using AutoCAD to plot out possible aging rates for numans. I think I found a nonlinear rate that would make them equivalent to the age of consent at 11 months old while still having a life expectancy over 15 years.

The best linear rate I have would set age of consent at 14.5 months and LE at 64 months.

Got another possible job lead, waiting to see if the guy finds good for me- I want to have my job last at least a year, I can't imaging how bouncing from one place to the next is hurting my chances.

So... I was at the lab at 7 AM. I woke up at five. I ate, got changed, went to the lab and nothing was bothering me. Absolutely nothing... THEN... my intestines felt the need to shit. Incredible... Not even a fart in the morning, everything smoothly going on, yet, once I get to my class, my FUCKING anus begins to complain. And it was annoying as hell!

I got to the toilet, which magically had paper, and then began the unloading operation. Just as I finished, I wiped my ass clean. BUT THEN my colon thinks it's a good idea to spit more shit... With the class running and me missing valuable explanations. I finish again, BUT THEN MY ASS SHITS AGAIN! It was like a bad, bad, BAD joke. Like "Oh, you can go! NOT!! HAHA!!" This went on for four more times, totaling five rounds.

Once I got to the lab, I notice the explanations are over and everyone is working... FUCK!! My ass makes no sound, no internal movement early in the morning, and while I usually can hold it in, THIS TIME, when I had important instructions being given to me, my fucking ass acts out. And it wasn't even a lot!

I've been angry all day because of that...
