You may find yourself interesting online, but the results are less convincing on my side of the monitor.

Beat me to it :lulz:

Also, Cain's history lesson. Thanks for that, dude.

There's also something to be said about Buddhists and Daoists arriving at roughly the same goals, but through opposite means (again, third-hand interpretation yadda yadda), but I'm on my phone and I'm supposed to be doing my job right now so that might come later if I remember.

*ANECDOTE WARNING, TAKE WITH AS MANY GRAINS OF SALT AS DESIRED*

From what I've been told by my martial arts instructor, who has spent a fair amount of time in China with practitioners of various disciplines, practicing Daoists are anything but listless, no-effort, or apathetic. Apparently they (meaning the practicing monks/priests/whatever) are very dynamic and active people.

As interpreted third-hand by a roundeye, to practice Daoism is to actively engage with the dynamic and changing world, finding the best place to be within it so that achieving one's goals seems effortless because you're working with what the world gives you.

Well, this is new.  My uni finance department is refusing my payment.  Usually they have no problem taking vast amounts of money off me, whether I'm willing to give it to them or not.

Are... are they feeling ok?

That was amazing

I feel like I struck gold with the chiropractor I ended up seeing to fix my neck (couldn't turn my head more than 20 degrees left for years). We checked out one who's receptionist went on a spiel about dietetics and holistic medicine, and walked away. Then we found a guy who was just about, y'know, fixing vertebrae alignment. Two sessions of neck manipulation and that was it, no insistence on continued treatment beyond fixing the problem.

My old home tops the list of safest places to drive...Boston bottoms:

http://www.allstate.com/resources/Allstate/attachments/tools-and-resources/ABD-Report-2014.pdf

Portland comes in the lower quarter (177 out of 200). I have contributed to that.

Worcester, MA at the very bottom. I FUCKING KNEW IT.

Massachusetts is the only place where I've experienced bad driving that could reasonably be described as "evil." Mostly in Worcester.

This is much more fun than me trying to play Skyrim again on my XBox.

 :lulz: Sounds like a hoot.

I have a friend who is very leery of getting More Fun Than He Really Wanted. Hearing about shit like this always makes me want to find an excuse to drag him along into shenanigans.

Well that fucking tears it.  :argh!:  I was already pretty annoyed with anyone who thinks that choosing a hard negative stance on an unverifiable hypothesis automatically bumped their IQ by 20 points, but anyone talking shit about @dril can go piss up a hundred ropes.

THE QUESTION PLAGUING THE GREATEST MINDS OF THE AGE: CAN CAINAD EAT MORE SMORES THAN HIS COMPETITOR CAN ORANGES?

July the Twenty-Second, Year Two-Thousand and Fourteen:

Why do marshmallows come in such large packages compared to the graham crackers and chocolate bars? The marshmallows are probably the one thing I am least likely to consume on their own. I suspect some nefarious design behind this, but I do not know by whom or for what purpose.

The sixth and seventh s'mores flew by. I can hardly remember them even know, mere minutes after their consumption. This frightens me more than the gooey horror that were the third and fifth s'mores on previous days. Am I becoming acclimated to what I am doing? Does this make me stronger, or weaker?
