It feels just super appropriate that Superstition plays on the radio on Friday the 13th. Granted, it plays every other day, but it still feels right.

I woke up this morning with the insight that if you are given a number of square blocks of equal size, that number is a prime if the blocks can not be arranged into a rectangle wider than one block.

Filled rectangles are allowed, right. I was thinking of hollow ones.

Traditionally, Friday the 13th is a day when people are careful.

I don't know how I did it. (it hurts.)

I finely took off my boot and looked at it.

I was reading about sprains.

Did I sprain my ankle by reading about sprains?
That's stupid.

Like thinking Friday the 13th is how I sprained my ankle.
Stupid or Not. I got hurt, again.

Based on what I learned of the events, the secondary criminal (money laundering/fencing stolen jewels) "went along for the ride" at the last min. How in the hell do you make a connection, in anyway shape or form, between Job and the primary criminal? Job had never met or heard of that individual. When you start to analyze facts, the flimsy justification for corrupt, tyrannical, terrorist behavior shines brightly in the desert. Furthermore, many college relationships aren't always the most faithful. Damn you for making me say that. Your flock is astray. Special place for you.

Whenever there's a bar scene on TV or in a film, characters have no trouble holding a conversation. They don't even have to raise their voices in the slightest. This... does not reflect my real life experience.

Some bars I go to, they have music playing. People have to raise their voices to be heard over the music, and so whoever controls the music responds by raising the volume of the music. This means people have to talk even louder. And so on and so forth until everyone ends up having to yell into each others ears to be heard.

One of my least favourite bars starts off playing reasonable-volume music at 6-7pm, but the volume gradually creeps up through the night, whether or not there are loud customers present. By 9pm you're having to shout, and by 11pm it's basically impossible to have a conversation at all. It has cheap, decent beer, and is a western-style place, so it's popular with some of my foreigner friends, but I just can't stand being somewhere where it's impossible to converse with someone unless I yell directly into their ear. Unless there's (good) live music, then it's mostly fine with me.

Fleeting thought: I guess my list of hobbies just expanded by at least 4 different things at once....

After going to a few conventions where quite a few people cosplay things (Funnily enough, nothing to do with what I was there for: To play in online game tourneys live), I thought I'd give it a try. Heh, there's a first time for everything. I also have a habit of making things too complicated, but if I'm going to bother trying, I'm in it to win it. Going to shoot for the moon!

I think I'd actually pay extra just to drink at a bar that doesn't play any sort of music whatsoever.

I would have thought so, too, but I found one once, and it turns out that it's not the music that makes people loud. It's people that make people loud. No background noise other than pool tables, dart boards, and booze pouring, and still people had to talk over everyone else in the place. Personally, I prefer to pay less, and just have drinks at home, or at a small gathering of friends.

So I came into contact with this new breed of 'schoolchild' this morning - a species I have not sighted in a herd (or phalanx formation) for many a year, but most disfortunately a colony of them had beleaguered and infested the rear portion my carriage ride to work. Apparently they have this hand-clapping thing? It's reminiscent of Pattycake Pattycake Baker's Man, or Pease Porridge Hot, yet contains a new set of lyrics I have never heard before. Is such a thing allowed? A quick Google search suggests this rhyme has been around since 2008. Anywhoms, the rhyme begins as follows:

    Tic tac toe
    Gimme an X, gimme an O
    Gimme a high, gimme a low,
    Gimme three in a row
    Bunny got shot by a U.F.O.

(The 'O' of U.F.O. is to be said like the Ohhh! in Soulja Boy)

There were more boys playing it than girls, and along with the O of UFO, there was a cacophony of 'brap-brap-brapping'. One of the feral oiks pointed their finger-gun at my head!

Now all I have in my head is bunny got shot by a you-eff-ohhhhhh

Do you see what was being taught?
We had Role Models.

Hogan was a Hero.
Hogan was Silly.

Our Nation was taught to be Silly.
It seems we are at our best when we are Silly.

There were several television programs on during The Early Years that showed us Silly Role Models.
Lucy was Silly. Ed Sullivan tried to be Serious. The Smuthers Brothers were Silly. We were Silly.

We watched Silly.
We copied it.

What are the young watching and copying, today?

I don't watch it. It is not silly enough.

Those are Role Models.
These people teach us on TV how the wildly successful behave.
If our people act like that, they will be wildly successful, too.

So many believe it.
Or; Wish it were so.

Role Models may have an effect on the way people live their lives.

Who is cathy bates?
The greatest Science Hero is almost certainly Norman Borlaug. His selectively bred crops have saved many, many people from starvation.
Just to be clear, the number of lives Norman Borlaug is credited with saving is in the BILLIONS.

Red Hot Chili Peppers were in the credits for How to Train Your Dragon 2 on bagpipes. Seeing that was better than the entire movie, which was already pretty good.

I don't smoke weed because it isn't permitted with my job. However, I believe it is better that alcohol on all fronts. Sure, you can have people abuse it, concentrate it into dab/wax (just learned of that on Mt. Mama), but still better than moonshine. The long and short term effects are much less in mind, body, liver and brain. I've made many poor decisions under the influence of alcohol, never while partaking in a little dubluba.

According to this http://cognitivelibertyuk.wordpress.com ... chedelics/
alcohol is no.1 for harm, then heroin, then crack, then methamphetamines, then cocaine, then tobacco, then amphetamines and then cannabis... and then all the way at the bottom: LSD.

Shit, that doesn't seem right. Met many a well adapted drinker, never seen a well adapted crack or meth head. Let me review the study...be right back... not too sure about the study. much of the data and support is missing. Did you get this from High Times Magazine?
