C+ Board Game

Okay, yes, very nerdy. But, maybe if I had played that as a kid I wouldn't suck at programming!

Oh man, awful joke

Heard this on Dawn&Drew:

What does George Bush think of Roe vs. Wade?

(highlight to see the answer)

He doesn't care how they get out of New Orleans.

"If you think stopping gays from doing it is more important than the icecaps melting, the Boogeyman is you."

Oh good, I was hoping someone would rip New Rules from Real Time, I love that last line.

Bush = Extraordinary!!

Well, according to him anyway.

Didn't I used to put nerdy links here?

Bye Bye Abortions

Not to be trite, but I think we have successfully voted, by proxy, to overturn Roe vs. Wade, now that there are two openings and plenty of time to fill them badly. So, yeah... good job everyone, or half of everyone anyway. It will be a state's issue, a couple years from now, so, find yourself on the list.

Bush's response

Two stories on Bush's response to Katrina from Newsweek and Time. Interesting from Newsweek is how much local and state response may be to blame. As much as I think Bush and "Brownie" deserve most of it, I can't help but think there was at least 24 hours there where it seems someone closer made mistakes.

Dam in Arkansas

I thought maybe this was already spread around, but just in case, this is the funniest and smartest joke of the year!

Very cool

Very well done animation about Trusted Computing. Even if you don't agree with it (which you should), they still did a really good job.


Zogby Poll. Bush has his lowest approval rating ever. He would lose an election to any president from the last 30 years if the election was today. Yet he'd still beat Kerry. Wow.

A ruling that says you are allowed to flat out lie in campaign ads! ! .... ?! .... REALLY?! Free speech, yes, but come on! All political ads should be under oath, and if you lie, you go to jail!

Geraldo = a human being?

What do you know, journalists doing their jobs, awful and amazing.

Cat up for adoption

Hiya folks, breaking from the dorky stuff for a moment. I am trying to find a home for my neighbor's cat, Mildred. If you know anyone looking for a kitty, send them to this link. Also, tell me if you notice any errors or have any suggestions for the page. I have no idea how to advertise a kitty, and I'd like it to look non-retarded before I send it out to a couple listservs on campus. :)

Another Video Game Study

And this one says: no big deal (bugmenot required). One says yes, one says no, one says maybe, blah blah blah. Conclusion? Use your brains and stop listening to inconclusive and coincident (as opposed to causitive) studies paraded about by red herring flinging media morons and democrats desperate to appear to have morals.


Seriously! WTF?! I mean, I guess I already knew this, but seriously, 42% of people think we've always been like this, no evolution?! 64% in favor of teaching creationism w/ evolution?!! graaah! Time to grow up, Humanity In General, it's 2005, no more fairy tales and ghost stories, be an adult!

Blog Spam

Comment from a couple posts ago:

meghanclinton3303 said... I read your blog, and i thought it was rather cool. check out My Blog

I'm confused! What's the scam here? Do people actually go buy stocks based on these blog comment spams? Really?? Some guy writes a blog on how good X3SE is, and you go buy it?! Ok well then you deserve to lose your money. Just sayin'.

Bush vs. Nixon

An interesting graph. Even I don't trust that one year projection, that's just silly, there is much more than 10% of people who will like Bush no matter what he does or doesn't do. Still, sorta interesting to look at the first 4.5 years.

Personally, I have always been partial to the Flying Pink Invisible Elephants theory, but they, that's why we should teach all of them.

The Enemy of my Enemy

This will be interesting. The book names 100 bad people, on a cultural basis as I understand it (I haven't read it), which is to say moral decay, hollywood values, educational leftism, etc. It is mostly liberals, but there are some conservatives, it might be interesting to hear this woman defend them all individually.

Some really cool stuff here. Some fun (probably pseudo) random walk things, neat visual effects, a isometric builder thing that's cool too. Check it.

Tuition Breaks

UA is giving tuition breaks to same-sex couples, awesome.

Not that I believe that Likins has some noble vision, he's just trying to be like everyone else and not lose good people, but still awesome.

Thank you to everyone who said nice things. I know it's hard to know what to say, nothing to be done, but I appreciate all your kind thoughts.

I will miss you, Moey and Stanley

Back in April of 2001, we weren't allowed to have most animals in our apartment complex, only things that are cage confined, hamsters or fish or guinea pigs, etc. Unfortunately, I don't agree w/ buying those things at stores, because it encourages their breeding. If you've ever seen a story on those breeding centers, you understand why. Then one day, a little black guinea pig named Midnight made an appearance on one of those adopt-a-pet segments on the local news. He was so cute looking, and of course I have no problem saving a guinea pig from the pound, so off we went!

Turns out he came as a package deal with his partner Sunset, who was bigger and brown, and also very cute. We got them that day, for 5 bucks each and 10 dollars for a big cage. This would probably have cost 150 bucks at petsmart, another point for saving animals! We loved them very much, spazzy little buggers that they were. We renamed the black one Stanley (after a long lost stray I took care of named Stanley Springer), and the brown one Mo for the mohawk she sported on her back. They were already pretty old, 4 years, but they were active, especially Stanley, who would scamper around the room if let loose, pooping where ever he dang well pleased! They made me very happy, being my first animals, it was so fun to just sit and watch them run around and scarf down greens.

A year and a half later, after many heads of lettuce, bags of cedar, and piles of hay, my spazzy Stanley died. He was just fine one day, and the next day very sick. It was a weekend and by the time I got the guinea pig doctor at the emergency vet on the phone, little Stanley had died in my hands. It was the first time one of my, not the whole family's, animals had ever died in my life. Even those animals I grew up with did not die until after I had moved out, so I guess it was new for me. He was 5 and a half when he died, most guinea pigs only live until 5 or 6. It was very hard, of course, but I had a wonderful friend to help me through that day.

I missed Stanley very much, then. And as you always do, I wished I had spent more time with him. So La Puerca Aburrida got a lot of attention after that. Guinea pigs live as pairs, and after Stanley died, I was sure that Mo didn't have long. I continued to be sure of this for months and months, but she just kept going, happy as ever, inhaling her parsley like a furry little wood chipper and tribbling whenever I walked into the room with a plastic bag. Eventually I became convinced that Mo would outlive us all, she just had too sweet a deal to be done yet. Moey lived through the death of her friend, through some manner of kidney problem that was never fully understood, through a weird bald patch that appeared and disappeared completely inexplicably, through a tumor she had to have removed, she just kept going.

I got pretty used to the idea that Mo would just always be there, to be honest. I got a cat when I moved, then another, then a dog, and a couple temporary guests in between. But Moey was the first, she was sort of a constant. But for the last couple weeks, it seemed indefatigable Moey had finally begun slowing down. Old animals always get a little creaky, and she was no exception, but once she stopped being able or willing to walk around and feed herself, it was obvious something was wrong. I've been feeding her by putting food under her face, and making sure she gets water by pushing it into her mouth (and getting nibbled in the process! Ungrateful!) I'm afraid I did not accept this change very well, she had been becoming more sedentary for a long time, so it wasn't that dramatic a change to my eyes. But when I brought her to the vet, it was so sad, they looked at her as if there was no hope, they knew her fate just by looking at her. I couldn't take that, right then, and I brought her home with me anyway. I don't know if that was selfish, but I wanted a few more days with her, a few more days to make sure she wouldn't rebound yet again, a few more days before I could believe the Unsinkable Moey Brown could be leaving me.

Moey lived to be almost 8 and a half years old. The vet said she was the oldest guinea pig he's ever seen. I know I've given her as long and good a life as I could have, but today, on July 26th, Moey couldn't go any longer. She had trouble breathing yesterday, I had a final appointment at the vet for her tomorrow, but when I got home from work, she was dead. I believe she lasted as long as she could, she was still very warm and had not yet become stiff, which happened quickly w/ Stanley. I wish I had come home just 5 minutes earlier to be with her at the end. I know I did my best, I spent all my time that I wasn't sleeping or working with her the past 3 days, but I wish she didn't have to be alone. Hug your animals extra long tonight.

Here's one last picture to remember my guinea pigs by, hideous buck toothed monsters that they were, clamoring for food! I will miss you, my handsome little Stanley and beautiful little Mo.

Star Wars Name

What is your Star Wars name?

Take the last three letters of your first name, and reverse them, that's your first name.
Then take the name of your first car, that's your last name.
Then take the last prescription (or over the counter, in my case) drug you took, that's your home planet.

So mine would be Noh Concorde from the planet Suphedrine.

Mine isn't that good :oP What's yours?

Well, mad props on the engineering that went into these things, there is some clever design work and problem solving that went into making them work, sort of impressive. But woah boy do people take things seriously!

I dunno how many of you would think this is cool, or be bored enough to spend 20 minutes watching it, but holy crap is it amazing. My mouth was literally agape for most of it, and sometimes I just laughed out loud at the ridiculous crap he pulled off :)

Do people already know about this? The guy comes across as a mad scientist, and the website comes across as buy-my-book-cult or something. But the ideas, if you ignore that crap, are actually really awesome. Maybe by the time I have enough money to actually own a house? :)

This may be old news for some, but I thought it was cool. Apparently there was some native americans that were gay and would lead the life of the opposite sex in their tribes. I'd say more, but sites can say it better:

People can argue about how accepted it was or amongst which tribes, or the validity of the modern revival, but just that it existed, that it was at least accepted enough to exist in some places, that's interesting enough.

Our Greatest Fear

Minus the god stuff, this is nice. (I heard it in the movie Coach Carter, which, interestingly, cut out the god stuff, but it is by some lady named Marianne Williamson from her book A Return To Love)

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

Bush = liar. That statement = duh

Not that we didn't know this, having it written down in one place still makes you sigh though.

Harry Reid = Awesome

HAHAHA, I think I like this guy:

Exceprt from a Rolling Stone interview with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV):
RS: You've called Bush a loser.

Reid: And a liar.

RS: You apologized for the loser comment.

Reid: But never for the liar, have I?
