  1. It's goddamn amazing to be, in part, due to creepiness
  2. "You must never lower yourself to being a person you don't like" Too late!
  3. Oh, derp. I still haven't watched that video. I will now.
  4. I think we're talking at each other orthogonally? I'm sorry. I don't think I understand. (I barely understand myself, TBH).
  5. I think I am a nihilist in many ways? Except I am still compelled by forces like hunger and need for sleep, so it's difficult to not have judgments coalesce in my mind.
  6. I do not understand this at all.
  7. Honestly, the pursuit of money is what drives me lately. Not much else. The interesting bits of me got carved away by market forces.
  8. "You have to tell better, more compelling stories", I'm okay with not having a good narrative.
  9. Well, *I* do, I think, but I'm pretty weird.
  10. I guess I see ideology/world view as a sort of overgrown shrub: whole bunch of ideas (most of them bad), and our brains only have a limited capacity for ideas. We need a way to weed the garden of our minds for bad ideas. We can do this, to a limited extent, with science: cut out the demonstrably false ideas. Yes, I agree that not everything can be "science-ified".
  11. For a few moments, I heard/hoped his FB had been hacked, but other people confirming it: https://mobile.twitter.com/ManMadeMoon/status/686441083648212992?p=v
  12. Well, shit. David Bowie died today. Shit.
  13. YOU JUST GOT HIT BY ¶▅c●▄███████||▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅▅|█ ▄██THE YAOI TANK███▅▄▃▂ █████████████████████► ◥☼▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙☼◤
  14. Watched the first ep of "The Expanse". It's pretty damn good. A few bits of space physics I'd *still* nitpick because I'm a nerd (e.g. the ship was maneuvering like an airplane (not a spacecraft) by the asteroid during the climax), but it's still fun to watch mostly-accurate physics in a scifi show. And I really liked the crew of that ice hauler ship, in particular. They felt like people I would encounter at Walmart or the game testing job. Workers, not heroes.
  15. I'm such a goddamn slow reader. Still working on: Debt: The First 5000 Years by Graeber Madness and Civilization by Foucault
  16. That's actually how it's supposed to be--better than 500 lines, 0% of which are comments
  17. Haha. I'm kinda fixated on interior design! Of spacecraft, though. Realistic spacecraft (that is, ones operating in free fall). I need to check out The Expanse if only for inspiration of free fall interiors.
  18. Jesus Christ, I need to wake up earlier: I sleep until noon a lot since I rarely get called into work. But then it gets dark between 4 and 5 in the afternoon because it's winter, so it's a bit more dangerous to go jogging. So I get no jogging in on those days.
  19. Dreamed my dad has an El Camino in the garage he was selling for a few hundred dollars. I have no idea why it was so cheap, and I kinda wondered if there was something wrong with it. Nevertheless, I decided I wanted that car, and offered to buy it from him. (this was right after I was derping around with an El Camino in Forza before I went to sleep, so...)
  20. I had absolutely no desire to get a man-bun until that Toshiro Mifune meme started going around. Don't tell me what to do.
  21. Oh, yeah, I've seen that billboard error message around the 'net for awhile now. But, still a great image, and I don't mind reruns
  22. when the subject of climate change comes up with a typical US conservative-type https://youtu.be/OvmvxAcT_Yc?t=5s
  23. Gangs of (presumably Muslim) men attack women in Cologne, Germany. Mayor insinuates it's the women's fault: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/mayor-of-cologne-says-women-should-have-code-of-conduct-to-prevent-future-assault-a6798186.html
