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.

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.

SPHERICAL EARTH THEORY CREATED BY LAZY GEOLOGISTS SPENDING YOUR TAX DOLLARS ON SO-CALLED "SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH".

Blowing YUOR MONEY on rock hammers and plaid flannel shirts!

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.

CHECK YOUR FEMALE PRIVILEGE.

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.

DEAR "BALL PIPE":

WHO AM I KIDDING, I STILL LOVE YOU

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.

</bandwagon>

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).
