Aneristic Illusions / Re: Occupy

I sided with the stormcloaks once and felt terrible.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said:"Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled li-ITS ALL FAKE, ITS ALL FAKE, NONE OF IT IS REAL, CHEMTRAILS DID 1776, THE PARTHENON WAS A FALSE FLAG OPERATION"

:mittens:

My ass is bleeding!

Use it to nurture your replacement ass.

I threw my controller away when I moved to Switzerland :(

 :sad: WHY?

I need to play the original Dark Souls, but modding it for PC seems like an awful lot of effort.

I never bothered to mod Dark Souls, which is odd considering how heavily I modded Skyrim. DS runs fairly ok, and looks fairly good on my PC.

I was under the impression it was all keyboard based without some modding.  I mean, I don't care for the looks so much (though 60 FPS with 2k textures is very nice), but the actual gameplay controls and basic display were a real pain on the PC port?

A 360 controller works with it in the PC port. I had some trouble adjusting to it, and its controls aren't perfect, but my casual-self clocked in 327 hours on DS using a controller.

I AM GOING TO BRAIN SCIENCE WITH SNAKES!!!

Literate Chaotic / Cyborg’s Quandary?

Your meat is you
You’re your meat
The meat is you

You equal meat
Without the meat
There is no you

Without you
Your meat is just
Meat

You equal meat
But
You plus meat also
Equals you

There is no
Dichotomy
Between
Mind
And
Body

But
   How
      Much

Meat does there need to be?

A soldier without a leg
Is still a soldier

A person blinded by an accident
Is still a person

A heart can be replaced
But not a brain

Is that all the meat
You need
To be
You?

Stripped of organs
And flesh

Brain encased
In shining steel

Does that you still
Remain you?

Even with eyes that see
Beyond human sight?

Even with limbs with strength
Beyond human might?

What if immortality meant giving up
Scents
And
Flavors
And
Hunger?

What does it mean to be
Human then?

You’re meat
Your meat

It is yours to do with
And
You can do with you
As you wish

How will your brain react
Without the cavalcade
Of self-administered
Drugs
And
Hormones?

Homeopathish?

No, that's for a hypothesis which is demonstrably incorrect, but still gets trotted out anyway

A hypothesis that can't be tested is called "unfalsifiable"

"What can go wrong" most of the time isn't some sort of horrible 100 meter tall spider. Usually it results in something that just can't survive.

As a huge nerd I feel compelled to point out that the 100 meter spider probably couldn't survive either. It's weight would scale up disproportionally to the strength of it's muscles or the structural integrity of it's exoskeleton.

EDIT:
Also, going back to big bang related stuff, has anybody else thought about the possibility that the big bang was the result of a Big Rip in a previous universe, or rather from the effect of the big rip on a hadron in that universe?
When the repulsive force of dark energy began to rip its component quarks apart it would instead be converted into a prodigious quantity of matter due to Color Confinement

Bothered you that much, huh?

Genetically modified to produce a graphene exoskeleton. Boom.

But isn't there also the problem of respiration with arthropods? IE the bigger they get the less efficiently they can respire?

I feel like such a slacker. Conceivably I could have applied to MA programs during my final quarter, but sanity. So, I basically can either try to rush for the few programs, or take the time to do everything gooder, which means almost the entire year.

I have 6 months. ....






.... until I can tell us military to piss up a rope

But fucking everybody is trying to get me to re enlist.

Also some fucking worthless sergeant has been flagging soldiers without telling ANYONE.  I've been flagged for 4 months. No one fucking knew. I about lost my mind.

And my DM is defective.
