Let's get back on track, with a topic that I care way too much about. Hopefully this is at least a little bit interesting to anyone reading this. I was just in the middle of re-assigning a score to all of the anime in my list and giving them an arbitrary rating out of ten, … Continue reading Review Scores
5 years ago a player called James 315 started pissing off miners by ramming into their ships using a Stabber (a very fast ship). When you ram a ship in EVE, it causes that ship to bounce off your shields, and you can send ships hurtling 10s of kilometers doing this. This is especially annoying … Continue reading E.V.E Online
What it's going to look like, what I'll be able to do and say to accept a universal living wage if things go well, or perhaps everything is going to collapse for real this time. We'll know pretty soon. I'm wondering if soon is within my own lifetime or not. 20 years distant if it … Continue reading The Future
A man gets hired for his first summer internship to do cost analysis, but he gets there and no one talks to him at all. No one tells him what to do or how to start working. He shitposts on a mongolian throat singing board all day every day while collecting his pay check and … Continue reading I’ll just leave this here
There's an actual place, in real life, where girls are this cute.
I think Saber is awesome and the Fate series would lose a lot without her. But, regardless... Rin has managed to create a disruption in my life that is unspeakably profound. Truly. She caused me to fall in love with another fictional character right when I was beginning to think it would never happen again. … Continue reading Best gal — Touhsaka Rin — Fate
When cloning becomes a thing, do you think it will be illegal to make a clone of yourself with some gene editing, such as crispr, to change an X chromosome to Y or vice versa and fuck it? Would that be abuse, or would it be okay since you own your genetic material and your … Continue reading Loose thought
Lately, when people speak English, sometimes the corresponding kanji or vocab card from Anki flies out of their mouth. I can't tell if it's due to the ridiculous amount of time I've spent on flashcards, the fact that I'm currently sleep deprived from changing into an Everyman sleep schedule, or if I'm just nutso. Might … Continue reading Studies and Sleep balance
An intelligent person is naturally deductive. He or she knows how to use logical thinking to draw parallels to current situations, think Sherlock Holmes. A knowledgeable person is someone who has -- through repetition -- learned something and who can now apply that knowledge. Intelligence is inborn, knowledge isn't. Then again, it takes certain people … Continue reading Intelligence vs. Knowledge.
I'm at the point in my life where I can understand that my disposition works in cycles, and that this recent depressive phase is just that. It will of course come to an end and I'll find elation and motivation once again. This allows me some comfort and perspective intellectually, but unfortunately not viscerally. Oh well, … Continue reading A glum chum just feeling dumb.
Japanese people have the slantiest eyes because the sun rises there first, and over thousands of years those without super slanty eyes were selected against because they couldn't squint well enough in the glare. I know this isn't true, nevertheless I chuckled to myself as I thought it.
