One time I saw myself in a mirror and realized that I could be pretty quickly pegged as a hipster by almost anyone on the street.

Cain, I just found your Dishonored playthrough. Looking forward to more.

Or Kill Me / Re: It's not Wrong when I do it

Fuckin'

Really enjoyed the look into the historical context of the ideas that have filtered into Social Network Justice Asshat communities (is that a better term? Because it certainly seems like these communities spend a lot more time fighting within the sphere of social networks themselves than anywhere else).

That last bit brings up what I think I find most bothersome about these kinds of "activists." It's not that I feel threatened, or hurt more than feeling mildly put-out when they make sweeping negative generalizations about white heterosexual males. It's that there's a lot of people out there who don't give a fuck about social justice and will quite cheerfully leverage their power as a social majority to whip up antipathy for minorities in response to these statements.

Talking unnecessary shit about whites/men/heterosexuals isn't a threat to said whites/men/heteros. It's a threat to the people who don't realize how much worse things will get for them if they aren't going to be smart about their cause.

I want to go to there.

Vulcanology was something I briefly looked into for graduate education. I'd still like to do it someday.

I ACCIDENTALLY HIT "MARK ALL READ"

I am either blessed or cursed. I haven't had a nightmare since I was a little kid, and the extremely rare times I can remember my dreams, they are quite banal. Hardly any weird shit at all.

I kinda think you're an ax-murderer now. O.O

No, I've met Cainad, and he's more of a scalpel type.  Very precise fellow, not prone to the huge waste of energy involved in swinging an axe around.

Axes are for wood, after all.

People using the wrong tools is what's wrong with everything. You've got people using the wrong tools for the right jobs, and you've got even more people using the wrong tools for the wrong jobs.

No, no. It just won't do at all.

So you have to PAY to have the shit scared out of you?

Poor bastard.

Yeah, it's a terrible bother. All of my cold sweats have to be induced artificially.

Perish the thought. Everything just gets shunted into my waking mind so I can get decent sleep. Why would that ever make me want to murder axes?

Ohh gotcha.

Think of them as the Maginot Line of the cold war.

I do geographical work for a company that helps people determine if their dirt is full of poison, helps them extract poison from their dirt if it's there, and helps design systems that reduce the amount of bullshit that enters the environment.

I accidentally found out where the abandoned missile silos are on my first day. Turns out, there's a LOT of them.

We have dozens of Nike silos.  Some were sealed up or whatnot, some were just sort of de-weaponed and then forgotten.  Homeless people live in them now.

We sure were ready to get them just as dead as they got us, huh? :lulz:

Tumblr has new terms of service:



Hey, I made the cut!

I can't wait until I've been employed long enough to get a good feel for the assbaggery in the company I now work for. Things have seemed pretty stable, but I'm sure it's an optical illusion.

It might help that all of the engineers are downstairs and I work upstairs with the hydrologists, whom I believe were all banished upstairs for spaggotry.

Roger, what is your stance on the legalization of emus?

 Possession of emu should result in diversion for Quality People, and life at hard labor in the potato mines of Iowa for Those Other People.

sure that's not Idaho?

Idaho is entirely fictional, invented in 1834 by William F. Zittiger as part of an elaborate tax loophole. It's statehood was never revoked because by the time anyone noticed, we had 50 states and everyone thought it would be a real shame to lose that nice, round number.
