Had a serious dose of Murphy and Finagle this morning. Luckily, what I was doing was small-scale and resulted in nothing but inconvenience to myself; no actual damage. But the bullshit just kept coming at a steady rate for about 3 hours.

I licked a sample in Geology lab today.

I'll give your field that; in no other lab have I been allowed, let alone encouraged to lick a sample. And fuck knows I ask in every single Biology lab.

You have undergone The Initiation.

But the true test will be whether or not you find yourself surreptitiously licking rocks and minerals, even after you know damn well that halite is the only one where that test actually reveals any information.

Crom saves? I thought he did more of the "trial by insane hardship" kind of gig.

The kid was gonna get to that bit.  He has no body below the waist, you see.

STILL BETTER THAN OBAMACARE THOUGH, AMIRITE?

I think I missed that the first time around; I didn't get that far into LDW. I spent too much time fucking off and now I've got all this catching up to do.

Love that chapter too, though. Even after all this time there's still something undeniably perverse about nuclear weapons.

But I already used that bit in Life During Wartime.

I may have got it from there and forgot during my many and long hiatuses :lulz:


This notion of a period of history, or a zeitgeist, or whatever the hell 20C is, being a something that is active and malevolent, tickles my brain.

My job would be MUCH easier if the world was flat.

Prove it isn't.  And don't give me any of that "Apollo program" crap, heathen.  You can't see the shape of the Earth from a movie set in Nevada.

Because if I don't account for the world being round, the site plan I draw for a site in Manhattan ends up in Schenectady.

And that would just be fucking inconvenient. Not that the Universe is above playing dirty tricks like that, but I'm not gonna go around enabling that kind of behavior.

:argh!:

Trainee Seminar Excerpt, Day 7

It is not a coincidence that the atomic bombs were dropped on Japan in 1945. This may sound like a stupid statement, given the amount of human effort that went into their development; of course it's not a coincidence. Nevertheless, bear with me.

Nineteen Forty-Five. Just about the middle of 20C, slightly to the left if you read it on a typical left-to-right number line.

Slightly to the left of center. Two bombs.

Thum-THUMP.

We did not, in spite of our own seeming best efforts, all die in 20C. But something else lived.

Just read the whole thing (slow day at work).

Yowza. It hits me in kind of a weird way, since I was only around for the last 9.5 years of 20C, and I was a bit preoccupied by poking bugs with sticks. The 21st C was definitely handed to us with a sense of "Don't worry about all that, it's fine."

Then some guys blew a hole in the world with airplanes and all this stuff came leaking out.
