Literate Chaotic / Stalker

"Got one of those stalker virus yesterday, creepy as fuck."

"Aye, what happened?"

"Walking down Main Street, talking to Melissa, getting the trip organised. She's checking flights and hotels and cars and shit. We'd just got to the cross and I get that creepy - being watched - feeling and I turn around and there's this shady looking fucker standing outside RS and he's looking right at me. "

"So what'd you do?"

"Well nothing at first. Just figured I was being paranoid. It's just after twelve, street was mobbed."

"So then what?"

"So, we walk on a couple of hundred yards, past the Eyeshop and I turn around again, kinda humouring myself, yanno?"


"There he is, half a block back and staring at me, this fucked up grin on his face."

"Fuck no!"

"My thoughts exactly. I told Mel to check him out. You'll never guess what she tells me?"


"Nobody there."


"She can't see him."

"She glitched?"

"That's what I'm thinking. So I turn back to the guy who's fucking marching toward us at this point, and he's got one hand inside his coat, you know like..."

"...he's going for a weapon."

"Aye, and I'm still thinking - paranoid but he's pretty fucking close now."

"How close."

"Like a couple of car lengths."

"Fuck me."

"So I turn to ask Mel if she can see him now."


"And, fuck all. She's gone."


"Aye, no sign."


"So I shout her a couple of times but nothing. I'm standing at the entrance to the star and it's mobbed. Saturday afternoon, right?"


"And I'm thinking, I'll be safe in there, maybe lose the cunt."


"So I head in and I'm straight up to the bar for a pint and I'm standing there and Mel appears, right next to me and I'm like, fuck happened to you?"

"So what's she say?"

"She leans in, right in my face, like inches away and then her face changes into the creepy cunt and he takes a step back, in a split second I can see a knife in his hand and then he stabs me right in the gut."

"Fuck, no."

"Seriously. There was blood pishing out and everything."

"Aw, that's heavy man."

"That's no the worst part."

"What's that, like?"

"The worst part is I've just made a complete twat of myself, in the middle of the Star on a saturday avo, in front of half the fucking town."


"Like I jumped back like fuck, cracked my back on the bar. I think I screamed like a wee lassie. Got some mental looks off the punters."

"Aw you did not?"

"Seriously, man, it was realistic as fuck, my heart was pure pounding. Dropped my pint and everything."

"So how'd you fix it?"

"I never."


"Fucker keeps doing it."


"What I told you - it's a virus."

"Aye I know but you deleted it, right?"

"Took the virus-scanner out, mate. Most of the time, it's just normal Melissa but, every now and again she turns into the creepy dude and stabs me and then for the next half hour I'm surrounded wi porn spam. Getting boners in the most inappropriate places. Can't even turn my eyes off."

"Fuck off."

"Seriously. Rooted."

"So what now?"


"What time?"

"Half an hour, was on my way there when I saw you."

"Good luck. Hey, what's that fucker over there think he's staring at?"


"Dude in the trenchcoat, wi the hat."

"Black hat?"


"Better come down wi me. Think you might have caught it too."

I know the subject has come up before about synesthesia here, but has anyone ever heard of someone being able to taste music?  I've been looking around the interwebs to see, because this happens to me, but my google fu is weak.

What do different sounds taste like?



Julius Horsthuis - Works with 3d fractals and is my new personal hero. These vids are impressive enough on screen but really come into their own in VR. If you have a rift, download the vrideo app (free from oculus store) and look for his channel on there. 

Niantic doesn't do testing. They also don't add servers to meet demand. When a feature starts overloading their five box z-80 cluster, they remove the feature. :argh!:

Next labour party leader after Corbyn - Tony Blair 200-1

Something... something... ice age... something... dinosaurs extinct because too cold for reptiles. My natural history is admittedly patchy but now I find even the patches are wrong. There's a cartoon about it, ffs! Now we have to go back and add feathers to all the classic dinosaur movies. Jurassic Quack anyone?

It's too bad high intelligence is so highly correlated with low self-esteem and depression.

I hate watching giants among men, like you people, walking themselves into dark thoughts and shit.

You guys should drive a couple nails into your heads. I tell yah, being retarded is fucking awesome. You just can't care.

Intelligence is a worthless survival skill. That's why it's selected against. Don't meet many supersmart fuckers do you? Being a maniac is miles better. Having the energy and the will to just smash a motherfucker clean out existence and a complete lack of concern for the consequences trumps depression every time in my book. I've extensive experience with both and that's my verdict :evil:

Wait, dinosaurs were endothermic?? Why wasn't I informed of this?  :argh!: So all that shite about the ice age wiping them out? Not even remotely funny  :kingmeh:

I never really analysed what I'm trying to accomplish here on this board. Don't know if being liked is very high on my priority list. Dunno why the fuck I hang out here but I goddamn love it so I keep doing it. In terms of friendship and good happy stuff? It's a limited medium compared to IRL but sometimes when one of you spags has something good happen I feel happy for you and if something shit goes down, it bums me out. What's friendship on the internet if it's not that?

Will I help you move a sofa in? Fuck no but some part of my life is better for you all being in it.

If this shit isn't exactly what it sounds like I will kill a mofo  :argh!:

Cos it sounds like we can now build cyborg fish. You ever hear something that's so fucking cool, you plain don't have the heart to fact check it?

Would say that pretty much sums up whats going on with back propagation as I understand it. The hard part for me, as a coder, was letting go and not needing to be able to read the finished logic. It was a kind of jarring transition, coming from a background of having to micromanage every fucking step in the machines "thought process"  :lulz:
