Every argument about Obama ever:

Blue: I support Obama
Red: Well, of course you do. Otherwise you'd be a racist.
Blue: ...excuse me?
Red: Yeah, anything anyone says bad about Obama makes them a racist. Because he's black, you know.
Blue: ...yes, but
Red: But nothing, I can't say anything about that porch monkey because that makes me a "racist"!
Blue: ...wait, what?
Red: Don't play dumb! You can't touch that nigger with a ten-foot shitstick. You just let him waltz on in and turn this country into (a) The Soviet Union (b) Nazi Germany (c) Motherfucking Ethiopia
Blue: Do you listen to yourself talk?
Red: Do I what?

So I haven't been posting here like I used to. I don't know, but since I've moved, letting my thoughts out to my friends at large has been superceded by the natural banter of the roommates. What thoughts do get out tend to fly up on Facebook, little memos of an idea rather than anything fleshed out.

I don't really mean to neglect this thing. Like anything else that falls into obscurity, it's never a conscious act, because of course that'd ultimately be self-defeating. Rather, the urge to post gets replaced with a casual conversation, a walk around town, or a trip to Walgreens for Arizonas (they're 50 cents a piece until the end of the week; I would suggest stocking up).

Life is...unique. Like all others. An ER visit last month has schooled me on the absurdity of the modern medical system -- I don't even know the amount I actually owe, and might actually owe two bills, one for the hospital and one for the doctor who was working with another facility. for a visit consisting of sitting in a room for an hour, saying "Aaaaahhhh", and having two shots in my rump. Actual time spent with a doctor was about two minutes. The bill is close to #700, or #300, or $300 and #400, or #1,000. I haven't found out yet what is true, so I'm hoping that it's just the three-hundred, but....I've learned not to be too optimistic when it comes to the medical community.

Once I get a stable grab on bills, I should be able to relax a little more. The basics of life, while expensive, aren't overwhelming me. It's the stupid shit -- the laptop I write on -- my cellphone -- that add onto the basics that make things a strain. Without roommates, this existence would be hell, but with three other people splitting the bill, what would be a crushing bill is more of a minor inconvenience at the end of the month.

Bills and my job dominate my existence, at least for the meantime. There are definitely cracks in this dim hallway, and now that I'm finally comfortable living on my own, I'm beginning to see things in a new way. Bills that just a few months ago would have made me depressed are now simply "the cost of living". I understand how close everyday comes to being a complete disaster, so I'm finally adapting and turning a grin.

Still a project in works, definitely need to figure out where the hell I am in terms of relationships, but honestly, I've done that old game enough that it doesn't really phase me like it used to. After strumming the strings of life, I've gotten very relaxed with that thin string of romantic desire on the far end.

Goodnight, world. I work at 6am and have to be awake in seven hours. The door is cracked and our bizarre early fall (well, our bizarre fall) is blowing in a cool, dark breeze.


(What happened to my suicidal friend from Serbia? His absence is actually a much scarier thought than anything he's ever said to me and the community at large. I hope he's just gotten another account or, hopefully, found a way to beat the shit. But if he's gone, he's gone, and he got everything he's wanted out of life. That's all one can ask, yes?)

btw guys, I didn't forget this

Val' -- Storm Grace
Bryan -- Storms Henri or Claudette

If TS4 develops it will become Claudette, and it doesn't look like that will cause too much damage, so that's one guess down. To recap:

Tropical Depression Four

Aug. 16th, 2009 | 11:12 am

Tropical Depression FourTS Claudette

Nexrad Radar Image

So that little tropical wave around Florida is all grown up, Ana is being directly more southerly, but expected to weaken, and Bill...well....

Notice the predicted increase in intensity -- you're reading right, NWS is calling for a Cat3 to form out of this system. It's also expected to head north of the Antilles, meaning the East Coast might finally be getting a good one.

A reminder -- keep an eye on this shit, people. You don't want to be one of the sad sacks the night before at Wally World, trying to buy a dozen flashlights while stuck in a three-hour line.

edit: About an hour after I posted this, TD4 became Claudette as it spun up to 40mph.

The Season Begins

Aug. 15th, 2009 | 07:30 am

About fucking time. Looks like Thursday will be the interesting day next week, assuming it somehow manages to creep up to the SC coast. It isn't predicted to explode into anything more than a tropical storm due to an area of dry air it's going to pass over in the next few days. Still, once it gets up to the coast, who's to say it can't begin to spin up a bit?

Also this little bugger has been on the radar for a few days now. It's got more of a potential to be serious than Ana, but simultaneously, it has yet to gain even tropical depression status. Winds only at 35mph right now and we'll see what happens today.

Divine Stars

Aug. 2nd, 2009 | 09:51 am

Next Big Religious Debate: "Divine Stars"

Since God created the Sun and the Night...

1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

...then clearly belief in nuclear fusion and stellar masses collapsing to form stars goes against the teachings in the bible of a spontaneous formation and separation from darkness.

Am I right or am I right? When can we start putting warning stickers on Astronomy books?

Writer's Block: I Don't Normally Do This Kind of Thing

Aug. 2nd, 2009 | 09:30 am

Have you ever found yourself enjoying something you had previously scorned as a cliché? What was it?

Well, I guess I could argue that since I've never done one of these before, this, but...

Pretty much any 4chan meme created after 2007 earns both my scorn and my admiration. When talking to a /b/tard, it's piles of contempt and mockery...but when they leave and I'm stuck with a virgin, I'll put a car in my car so I can drive while I drive...

And here I was worried how Colbert and Jon Stewart were going to still stay funny in an Obama administration. Apparently, the rabid, almost illogical conservatism of the Bush years has transformed into something broader, a collective hate of the Obama administration that mirrors that of the Democratic hatred of the prior administration, but in a much more shallow, paranoid, and reactionary manner. People hated Bush with a passion, but only the crazies would seriously suggest that he was mirroring the policies of Adolf Hitler or that he was the rebirth of a mythical evil figure, sent to destroy the World and, perhaps, even the United States!

I'm serious, I really believe that this rage wouldn't be nearly as bad were Obama not black. Yes, he's a very Liberal president with unity-based policies and is someone who is willing to sit down with people even his own staff might consider to be a bad PR move. But unless I have severely underestimated the rabidity of the new duality of politics, it really feels like this is just a deep-seated racial issue above all else. It won't be talked about because that doesn't fly anymore, but everyone listening and watching really "gets it", the true reason behind the rage. It's implied and everyone nods and goes to bed with a twisted smirk on their face, the keeper of a collective secret of anger.

At least I would hope...

Oh. I almost forgot that Fark used to have boobies on it. Then I remembered that it didn't remove them, it just branches.

Maturity or not, til the day I die, I will enjoy pornography. Not saying the real thing isn't so much sweeter, but that comes with mucho restrictions, must fit into schedules, and if you change sites too fast you can get your stuff thrown from a balcony.

So, finally 21, and finally able to get drunk without the assistance of sneaking around other people.

I enjoy being drunk. Responsibilities don't absolve, they just become more tangible. My desire to romance increases. Things in general become more clear, more vibrant, than the bland logical world I normally live in.

Depressant or not, it is an exciting stimulation.

Adjusting to life in downtown Myrtle Beach is a definite challenge. While all of the interesting places are well within reach, the neighborhood is a bit of a downer, and the only people who seem to be happy are the family of Mexicans across the street with the nice lawn. The only nice lawn on the street.

I don't understand what the hell the city is trying to do with this bike fest. The ranks are completely barren, with only a few bikers floating around at any one point. The spotchecks are backing up traffic for miles, and it seems the area is doing everything it can within its power to completely remove tourism from the local economy -- great if we had anything else to fall back onto.

I'm embarassed to live here right now. Never have I seen a city claim to be a tourist destination so devoted to actually scaring away potential visitors. And if you think it's bad this year, wait until next year, when all of these bikers and bystanders make travel plans and remember what a bummer MB was, and end up traveling north or south of the Strand.

Thus begins our never-ending winter.

As the summer heat begins again, roaming around a Wally World filled with shaved heads and acephalics on loudspeaker, the strong urge to flee to Alaska and pick up the life of a lonely alcoholic in cabin, far away from insects and the inane hopes and dreams of Average, in a little world where I can just find myself completely entertained by the woodgrain on the door.

I haven't laid myself down on the ground in a long time. It's all been a long time since I've slept outside.

Wait, have I ever slept outside?

This world is too hard and too soft simultaneously. We're so difficult with each other that we're all paranoids and become easily offended by the very presence of outside thought.

We're so used to having opposing views crippled by damning personal attacks on how we live, that we've learned by experience to only listen to ourselves, criticizing others in the same manner to defend our private thoughts from actual exposure to the real world.

Homeopathic remedies are bullshit, you can only really lose weight by burning more calories than you consume, and Obama is neither the Second Coming nor The Antichrist.

I want some fucking peace, a place with a middle ground and level land for miles.

Behind The Business Plan Of Pirates Inc

May. 3rd, 2009 | 03:24 pm

Gullestrup says they actually found time sheets onboard the ship after the pirates had left.

"We could see that there was a time sheet on a particular person who had been onboard and dates they had been onboard and so many dollars per day, and then a total sum on the time sheet," he says. The pirates, in effect, were clocking in and out.

I'd love to see the next Sim City game emphasize more interaction with the environment around, to the point where the conflicts with the elements provide as much of a management challenge as running the city itself. Some ideas I've been toying with:

  1. More geological realism, above all else. What I mean by this is, implement differing layers of earth depending on elevation, as opposed to making sea level automagically fill with water, even inland. Say, as you dig into the ground, it exposes older, harder layers, which cost more to manipulate but provide for better firmament for buildings

  2. Water that actually obeys the laws of gravity. Since my first idea would remove the idea of a "water layer", water would then become a structure of sorts, influenced by the slope it rests, what it rests against in terms of elevation (trapping it), and the ability to erode terrain depending on the thickness of the firmament and the speed of the water, based on the slope and angle in which it is decending.

  3. Weather! Real Weather! If a flood is a disaster, it shouldn't just happen, it should be the result of a series of showers which push the water levels onto habitable terrain. Maybe have a little window pop-up with a Sim version of Jim Cantore giving forecasts so you can prepare for floods, strong storms, tornadoes, and even hurricanes (which would form on large areas of open water). Weather, being such a dynamic system, would have to be calculated across the entire workable region, otherwise it loses its significance.

  4. Every city is alive! This one would require the biggest developmental challenge, since you would be required to calculate all cities at once and keep them all constrained to a single global clock. Mind you, you don't have to render the areas you aren't developing, but if you could seamlessly transition from area to area in a region, that would be excellent.

  5. Non-cubical development. Real cities tend to develop in circular patterns around a city core, or in half-circles when resting against a barrier, such as a lake, ocean, or mountain. However, towns in Sim City tend to just become giant cubes when they hit their boundaries. Making the boundaries between cities more customizable and arbitrary, which would be easier when everything is on one giant live map, would help to make it more realistic. I also have a horrifying proposition: Change the classic cube grid to an octahedron-based grid. You could still building straight roads, but roads at angles would also be easier. Personally, I'd love to increase the direction you could build roads into a complete circle, and just make the road tool smarter. Maybe the ability to draw arced roads, adjusting the shape of the road using little angle points on the road itself, similar to how one uses the line tool in Illustrator.

  6. Seeing as we're getting arbitrary, I think the ability to overlap structures onto other grids should definitely be allowed. Buildings should be able to fill up all available property straight up to the road, if they so please, even if the angle is bizarre. Maybe the ability to basically freehand zones would be awesome, too, so you can have all sorts of bizarre shapes.

  7. Scratch my earlier notion of octahedron grids. Let's just kill the grid and base everything on lines and shapes. Draw an arbitrary residential zone, pop up a menu where you can choose how to subdivide it, if at all, and as long as it is placed near a road, it will develop a house somewhere on each lot. The house will be big or small depending on the value of the land, and when it runs out of space on said property and its value increases, it will begin to expand upward. I like this idea. A lot.

  8. Ammendable buildings. In other words, in order to add a second story to a building, the original building does not have to be removed, and older buildings should reflect their age and history as much as graphically possible. Maybe have a "code inspector" service that if it isn't paid, houses begin to go slack on maintenence, they begin to look unkempt, and if the funding is low enough, some may collapse in a new form of disaster.

And this is just a sample, my friends.
