Tonight's Reading List

Cheapass Laptops

To those of you who say: "Why don't they take this money to feed people/cure cancer/fight terrorism!!!1"
My response: Fuck you. I hate the "we should fix one global problem at a time" mentality. If all we did was feed the starving, a generation later we'd have nothing but a whole bunch more starving to feed. If we can get more countries up to par with us economically (shouldn't be hard considering the direction of our economy), then maybe later we'll have more help in feeding/curing/shooting.

Chaotic Evil

A chaotic evil [person] does whatever his greed, hatred, and lust for destruction drive him to do. If he is simply out for whatever he can get, he is ruthless and brutal. If he is committed to the spread of evil and chaos, he is even worse. Fortunately, his plans are haphazard, and any groups he joins or forms are poorly organized. Typically, chaotic evil people can be made to work together only by force, and their leader lasts only as long as he can thwart attempts to topple or assassinate him.

These [people] will commit any act to further their own ends. Chaotic evil is sometimes called "demonic" because demons are the epitome of chaotic evil.

Chaotic evil is power without control, selfishness unfettered by any law.

You will be snackulated. Resistance is delicious.

So, they've launched new GPS satellites, which should supposedly be much better. However, what struck me was the picture of the new satellite, described by one person as "the borg cube that assimulated the Wonka Chocolate Factory". More technology should look like this.

Phoneless and free... for now.

Well, my phone is still not charging. I am worried that it's dying, just like the hard drive. I've been reading a lot of the Mage book, and I think the problem is that I've pushed my technosorcery too far, and now it's pushing back. Either that, or it's the shitty open-box charger and worn out old battery. MAGIC!

Nonetheless, I don't really miss the damn thing. Sure, you can press the "ignore" button when someone calls and you don't want to answer, or you can turn your phone off when you don't want to hear from anyone at all. But there's still accountability. There's always accountability. "Missed calls", "voice mail", "outgoing stalk" - the Machine has found a way to fit a thousand tentacles into a pocket-sized box.

Soon enough, I'll have my phone back. But when I do, I'll be better prepared for it. I'll never check who missed me, and delete random voice messages. And it'll be off way more than ever. Over time, it will grow new tentacles, and I will be swift to chop them all off, one after the other, until all I have left is the phone torso I signed on for. Technology is supposed to make my life easier, and I'm not going to forget it again.

  • Factory LEGO Digital Designer: I did not know about this! It's worth downloading, playing with for five minutes until you get bored or annoyed that you don't have infinite of all pieces, and then deleting to make room for more porn.
I'm off to the mountains for the weekend again, but THIS time... I've got the new Mage: The Awakening book. Good for me! Hopefully, I can re-learn how to do this "reading" thing.

Take THAT, recurring dream!

The Expatriate
Achtung! You are 23% brainwashworthy, 9% antitolerant, and 19% blindly patriotic
Congratulations! You are not susceptible to brainwashing, your values and cares extend beyond the borders of your own country, and your Blind Patriotism does not reach unhealthy levels. If you had been German in the 30s, you would've left the country.

One bad scenario -- as I hypothetically project you back in time -- is that you just wouldn't have cared one way or the other about Nazism. Maybe politics don't interest you enough. But the fact that you took this test means they probably do. I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt.

Did you know that many of the smartest Germans departed prior to the beginning of World War II, because they knew some evil shit was brewing? Brain Drain. Many of them were scientists. It is very possible you could have been one of them.

Conclusion: born and raised in Germany in the early 1930's, you would not have been a Nazi.

However, my computer seems to be coughing. Jeff said some magic about the "hard drive". I kicked it a bit, didn't help, so now I'm giving it the weekend off. This is what I get for buying a Mexican-built computer. First it's the floppy drive not being plugged in when it was shipped, then the monitor, the power supply, and now the hard drive. And it's all uber-expensive to replace because it needs to be a Dell-whatever.

Next one, I'm building it myself and throwing Ubuntu or some other copyleft goodies on it.

Crazy Asshole Continues Craziness
