Independence Day - Jeff Golblum found Mac-compatible aliens and gave them a computer virus.

Jurrasic Park - The young girl overrides the lock mechanisms to keep velociraptors from opening doors.

You guys may notice there's a pattern - or rather a method - to these quests.

Bonus afterlife credits to anyone that figures it out.

Quite a few of them seem to be along the lines of pushing the boundaries of one's comfort zone, or routine.

I'd suggest Nightwatch or Thud.  He's a boozer in Guards, Guards.

Yeah, I mostly have Thud to go on.  I'll have to add Nightwatch to that, then.

It has occurred to me that I commented but didn't sign up.  SO, I am here, seeking a quest.

You will, at work, behave as Sam Vimes would.  Not wearing his gear, etc, but acting as he would act in your position.

You will do this for 15 work days and record here the changes in the behavior of others, and in your own thought processes.

I'll pick up Guards, Guards tomorrow.   :lulz:

From what I've read, I'm not sure this is going to be much of a mentality shift on my part, but I relish the challenge of being even more cynical.

Nice.  Is this a part of something larger, or intended to be vignette?

Kid's a menace.  Shoulda tasered him.

I'd like to offer up the idea that PD is a mind/mood altering substance.

There is a chance that the new number has the actual saved contact of the person you're claiming to be, of course.

Are we the ones that play inane games of questions, mocking the Socratic method by tossing pointless inquisitions against equally disinterested parties?  Are we the ones that insist on discourse conducive to the progress of ideas?  Are we the jokers whose smiles are on the toothier side of comfort, whose punchlines are on the hurtful side of mirth?  Are we the victorious, and by what conditions?  Are we the mouthy malcontents, weathering the staunch hangers-on to foolhardy concepts?  Are we the derelict that stand on street corners, yelling about everything at once and to nobody in particular?

Who are we?

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Hijacking cars with music

This is horrible.  More horrible than the idea of mp3s stealing my car and going to a rock show without me.

What, you didn't know?  We went out last Thursday.

Huh.  One of my preferred bands for the last five years is Wolf Parade.  I just looked up a song of theirs on YouTube, and not only is the video really, really good, but it also comments surprisingly well on the topic.

There was just as much trendy filler bullshit in the glory days of music as there is now.  The classics that we listen to and hail as the heyday of the genre are treated as such because they have proven to withstand the test of time.

The reason most of what's on the radio now is shit is because the good hasn't been weeded out over the years as people realize that, yeah, it made sense then, but it sounds absolutely terrible now.

I mean, shit, Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer, at one point, were considered good instead of just awesome for how much of a punchline they've become.  Meanwhile Run-D.M.C. and Dr. Dre sound as good as they did then.

Blog tradition dictates that you update frequently, perhaps several times a day, over the course of a week or two before slowly tapering off, updating maybe once a week, then finally either disregarding it entirely or forgetting that it ever existed but for some time later when it pops into your head while thinking about something else, contemplate starting it back up again and perhaps even do, finally stopping altogether and never returning.

"drinking kool-aid from the Fountainhead" isn't one I've heard before, and an excellent way of describing Randroids.  Anyone know if that's a common phrase or is that one hers?
