Probably a better laughing gif:

It's probably good that the internet closes down on weekends, or I'd never get any studying done.

All but one of my classes are currently in the "review" stage, and I am finding it distinctly difficult to do the assigned readings because boring. Mendelian genetics and the chromosomal basis of heredity, really?

I already did the reading for the other class. It was nice.

There's a lot of unnecessary overlap.

I remember starting off Intro to Biotech, I was like, "yes, yes, yes, DNA, RNA and nitrogenous base pairing, WatsonNCrick, GCTA/GCUA/GTFO can we STFU and actually get on with something new?" Now, I learned new shit in that class but the first two or three weeks were why-did-I-get-up-this-early-on-Saturday.

It's a necessary overlap, I guess, but it would be nice to cut down on that.

Yuhp.

Thing is, I feel like I need to read those chapters because what if they hid something new in there?  :lol:

That's the maddening part. Because there might be, but there probably isn't.

So far there haven't been. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.  :lol:

It's Cosmo Logic, in which taking the single most destructive possible course of action in your relationship will keep you one step ahead of the enemy, who in  this case is your boyfriend.

I kinda feel like Cosmo Logic needs to be enshrined as a logical fallacy.

 :lol: It's almost more like an alternate universe in which mating is actively hostile.

I found out tonight that Catholicism, in my family, dies with Dad. Neither of my sisters are Catholic anymore either, and I already knew that mom was an agnostic eclectic new agey type and stepdad more or less an atheist.

It was weird for the first half hour. I thought I was the only one on that.

Good riddance.

That feels weird to say, but, yeah. Good riddance.

To clarify the unnecessary/necessary

It would be nice for there to be a clear progression, so that what is review is just a quick touch up. That's probably never going to happen though.

Fair points, Nigel. It does sound douchey.


Incidentally, what's "Valium White Girl Music"?  Because it sounds really interesting.  Do you mean like Lourde?

Listening to Lourde now. Yeah, I think it counts. It was more meant to mock the idea of Angry White Boy Music.

That does somewhat speak to my creative originality and make me want to burn artistic bridges, to be honest.

You mean build a bridge and then you burn it? CHECH YOUR PRIVILEGE ecocidal maniac

Hey, I'm a a biologist, not an engineer. What happens after my suggestions isn't my problem.

Why the fuck did you hire a biologist to build a bridge anyway?

They hired me to build a bridge. So I planted a bunch of trees by the edge of the ravine and told them to wait for it.

But did they have high heels and an apple bottom ass?

I'd probably pick Weird Al too.

What I got from the OP was that there is crappy music from all times but Twid was was willing to give the new music a fair shake, implying that Villager's best friend was not.

That's a big part of it, yes. You're touching on something that I still quite can't enunciate.

Another part is staying power, and enjoying novelty when it is done well.

Here's an example of a song that I feel very ambivalent about. On a purely combination of sounds level, I think "Sail" by Awolnation is awesome. I hate the lyrics though. Maybe you should kill yourself and blame it on your ADD? Um.... Yeah, have fun with that. But musically, it's really really interesting. It's different. It's got some good stuff there. So I listen to it when it comes on, and I go, cool.

I suppose it's that the young can be just as closed-minded about music as an old person. But they have a different rationale for it.

I have no love for "indie" music.
Also you're a ok dude Twid in my book for hating Sublime.

Well, the singers name was Brad. He wasn't lying when he said he didn't practice Santeria.

59
Pretty sure this whole post is Twid's passive-aggressive way of calling me out for being a Journey fan.

Real classy, Twid...real classy.

You're fine, as long as you don't karaoke it.
