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.


Jesus Jackrabbit Christ. I can't even process the thinking behind these claims right now.

Variety is key to a really optimal diet, so forget about simplicity.

See, I've come across this a few times but I'm not convinced. Is there an explanation somewhere why we should eat a whole different bunch of different stuff. I'm not saying it's a bunch of crap but it doesn't make any sense to me. I'd rather it did.

No one thing you eat is a perfect source of nutrition. Eating a bunch of different things in moderation, with some general guidelines about protein/fat/carbs, is ultimately probably easier than picking through every nutrition label with tweezers to try and find a bare minimum "optimal" diet. You don't want to eat the same, mostly-ideal thing every day for a year only to discover that you forgot to account for Vitamin B-1337 and now you have Spontaneous Dissolving Butt Syndrome.

I barely remember a fucking thing about CU's apeshittery, but I do remember that it got a little too personal and basically everyone who's opinion I give a shit about has said "Fuck that guy." Also, his "I'm back" pseudo-apology sucked ass.


I really need to create an alternate tumblr so that I can roll in the mud a bit. My current one is mainly just a little nerd-space for idle amusement.

Why why WHY can't we shake off this cultural fetish for torture and punishment?

I probably spend way too much to get my Saturday Nights, but they've basically been outlawed or run out of business on Long Island, so I take them where I can get them (which is by driving/ferrying off the world's most gentrified sandbar).

This weekend Cainad and I sharpened a LARP, farted on nobility, delivered "ministry", and swore at them over forgetting the faces of their fathers and their basic geometry.

Was anyone left alive?

All of them. Which is far, far worse when you think about it.

Woah what

Hey hey hey now, hold on a minute.

There are much worse books to base your business model on than "Watership Down".


I am very into the idea of giving minimum wage a big fat boost.

I am, through the rather extraordinarily fortunate circumstances that make up my life, employed for a little more than double the current federal minimum wage. This affords me some fairly comfortable living, hobbies, and the ability to put money into savings.

But I'm a single guy, in good health, living fairly close to a family support network. The idea of supporting a family, even just one child, on what I make, let a lone half of what I make, is ridiculous. I can tell just from the daily experience of me earning my paycheck that there's no amount of "hard work" that could possibly elevate someone out of poverty on that kind of money, in this economy. The goddamn math doesn't fucking add up, no matter how hard you stick your thumbs in your suspenders or how loudly you squawk about work "ethic."

Holy shit. I was pretty sure that the history books had pretty much closed on Occupy. Turns out there's a whole lot of :popcorn: still to be had.
