Or Kill Me / Re: On Being Terrible
« on: Yesterday at 10:12:06 pm »
Very well said!
It reminds me of something:
dan le sac and scroobius pip - sick tonight
Quote from: lyrics
But in the real world things just ain't that easy

You can't take back your mistakes so freely

You gotta take them in think about them deeply

Not ignore them and just move on discreetly

They say Jesus died for somebody's sins but

God knows he didn't die for mine

Coz I'll stand accountable for my own damn sins each and every time.

And if my sins are too great to be accepted in the circles which I strive

Then I'll go right ahead and live a lone lush life in some small dive

This is my aunt.

Phone call from my mom in 3...2...1....

Well played!
You got the tone just right!

Well, at least those practicing homeopathy are drinking enough water.

Maybe everyone was just dehydrated, you know?
It is not homeopathic treatment that is so damaging.
It is the rejection of non-homeopathic treatment.

The accidents of the future are going to be so much more hilarious and horrible than I suspected.

Well, if I had a lawn, I'd welcome you to trample all over that shit.

Since I do not, I instead welcome you to trample all over my Discordia.

Yes, MY Discordia.  I own it.  All of it.  And you fuckers still owe me royalties.

I should probably read the OP, or really any of the posts in this thread, rather than just replying to the title, but I'm overtired and if I was to give a fuck it would have to be to my SO, even though I'm sure you are hot stuff.

Whatever I'm going to bed.  I'll read this thread tomorrow and then realize how stupid I am, yet again.  Gotta have something to look forward to, ya know.
I found it entertaining. So there's that.

The Raven may just be my favourite poem.
I like your version too.
Please keep doing this.

Meh. So being famous doesn't make you science-savvy. I'm not surprised.

The water memory thing, it is impressively stupid.

UNGH  :fap: :fap: :fap:

How do you even contain all that sexiness without just EXPLODING?

No idea. It just is.

Thanks! <3

Waffles pics often make my ovaries squeak

I heart you, Pix.

it's like a squee plus some growl that ends in a sigh.

I'm... not sure how to interpret that. But then I usually don't understand stuff.
You'd be surprised how often things aren't unintelligible, but just unintelligent.
Sometimes the stupid is too big and even an average mind cannot even, minds like yours are at least above average so you have no chance.

That was kind of not a very nice way to refer to Pixie's post.
Shit, I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to say anything bad about Pixie's post, I was replying to Waffles self-deprecating statement about him not understanding things. I didn't mean to insult Pix :(

I feel like a jerk now, I'm sorry :(

I like this. Will it print full-size?

Here's a link for a larger version:

I'm not 100% confident that'll work, but if you're just putting it on like letter or legal size paper it should be fine.

As always, I am giddy when you have gifts like this for me! Thanks!

I might get to go to research in Peru for the summer. The logistics are a little complicated (it's for Systems Science, which I am not getting a degree in and I have exactly zero elective credits), but I'm going to try to make it work anyway.

My SySc professor is also in the Psychology department, he may be able to make an argument for allowing it to apply to that degree.
Wooo! congratulations!

Now I got that damn song stuck in my head  :argh!:
What song?  8)

I sorry my friend, I not try rub it in.

Can wiggle in seat and wave arms like loon to good music?

Dance not require feet, wiggle dance fun too! 

notloki like headbang, wish had longer hair.

Hope robot legs to you ASAP!  Download program and dance like pro instantly!

Your friend,
Legs not problem, FEAR is problem.
Both alcohol and depression help to negate the symptoms but the sideeffects are horrendous.

lol I wonder if I could hold my nose and still detect the scent of something strong and easily recognizable.
I want to try this experiment!

You probably could, but more likely due to sneaky odor molecules sneaking into your nasal chamber, not due to the olfactory receptors in your skin, because they do not route to the odor-recognizing part of your brain.

So, do they have any point, or are they like the appendix?
rub pepper on elbow. it should work, I never tried it though.

...that your skin has odor receptors?

Your whole body is a nose.

You're welcome.

How does this work, are their functions related to perspiration, heat detection etc?

They work the same way as the ones in our noses do (detecting and recognizing odor molecules) but rather than routing that information through the thalamus for conscious recognition, they seem to serve a regulatory function, responding to certain odors by triggering biochemical cascades that regulate how our cells transcribe DNA to produce certain proteins. For example, for reasons no one understands, exposing the skin to the odor of sandalwood triggers a cascade that results in more rapid healing of wounds.
Rapid healing? I'm guessing that is caused by free radicals.

Is joke? I don't get it. :?
Naw, I just read somewhere that too much antioxidants slow wound healing and I concocted this whole explanation in my head in which both apoptosis and excessive cellular growth (cancer) are caused by free radicals, and both are needed for tissue regeneration therefore free radicals must promote tissue regeneration.

Uhm, I'm not sure if i've explained that right.
Let me try again in an logical-positivist-ish style:
1. Anti-oxidants reduce the presence of free radicals.
2. Extreme concentrations of anti-oxidants are thought to slow tissue regeneration.
3. Extreme concentrations of free radicals are thought to cause apoptosis and excessive cellular growth.
  3.1. Free radicals could be a positive factor in tissue regeneration.
END of logical positivist-ish style.

Isn't sandalwood slightly poisonous? That could cause a release of free-radicals.

I'm just idly theorizing here but the concept has it's attractions.

notloki, you are annoying me already.
I Welcome annoyances that make me either think or glitch! I just can't tell which is you...
