note: I'm posting this because I find it ironic and humorous, not because I have anything against liberals. Please, no political debate.

I'm going to be so rich [Nov. 15th, 2006|10:34 pm]

I've got this great idea for a World War One video game. It starts out with you getting drafted as a 17 year old high school student. You say goodbye to your friends and parents to spend a month in basic training, barely learning one end of the gun from the other before you're sent off to the front lines. You spend 99% of the game sitting in a ditch as each side hides in their fortifications and constantly bombards the other with artillery. You often hear gunfire, and sometimes you shoot at shadows that might be people peeking over the edge of their trench, but mostly you're bored and miserable and afraid. Comes with a free bucket of cold muddy water for you to put your feet in while you play, for the authentic experience. Warning: may cause dysentery.

Fun little website to check out when you're up for no good damned reason at 5AM:
http://www.kabalarians.com/cfm/menu-BriefAnalysis.cfm

check out some of the things it says!

Marcus:This name can ... cause health weaknesses in the elimination system...


Zach: Your pleasant manner attracts people to you with their problems and you are capable of offering practical advice, though you would probably not follow such advice yourself.


Travis: This name can ... cause health weaknesses in the reproductive organs, and tension or accidents to the head.


Jenny: You can then become intolerant of others, and caustic and belittling in your expression, thereby imposing stress on your personal relationships.


hehe, fun

it's goddamn late [Sep. 15th, 2006|05:20 am]

So I haven't posted anything in a while, and I need to do something else before I tackle this final "engineering" problem. I swear, if engineering for a living is as dry and boring as the crap I've been doing in class and for homework, I'm going to have a real problem. It's like, the first year we had all these little projects in engineering- every lab in the first semester was designing a circuit that controlled this little robot in a different way. Now it's like, here's a picture of a circuit, find the number that goes here. Except for that engineering classes where I never even saw a circuit, and I'm not entirely certain that I learned anything. Oh and this one me and Tim are taking now that's been cal 3 review so far, but promises to plunge ever deeper into complicated mathematics. I used to like math somehow... Now it's too much work. Even though sometimes it's kind of cool when everything clicks together at te end of a certain problem, but it just doesn't justify the half hour of trying to figure out what the heck is going on. I hope I get some kind of internship soon, because I really want to make sure this is what I want to do. Career fair is next week and I plan to spend as much time there as I can. What are journals for if not for bitching about homework, eh? This has been a block of text from Ben.

============================================================================

There was a little old lady, who every morning. stepped onto her front porch, raised her arms to the sky, and shouted: "PRAISE THE LORD!" One day an atheist moved into the house next door. He became irritated at the little old lady. Every morning he'd step onto his front porch after her and yell: "THERE IS NO LORD!"

Time passed with the two of them carrying on this way every day. One morning, in the middle of winter, the little old lady stepped onto her front porch and shouted: "PRAISE THE LORD! Please Lord, I have no
food and I am starving, provide for me, oh Lord!"

The next morning she stepped onto her porch and there were two huge bags of groceries sitting there. "PRAISE THE LORD!" she cried out. "HE HAS PROVIDED GROCERIES FOR ME!"

The atheist neighbor jumped out of the hedges and shouted: "THERE IS NO LORD. I BOUGHT THOSE GROCERIES!!"

The little old lady threw her arms into the air and shouted: "PRAISE THE LORD! HE HAS PROVIDED ME WITH GROCERIES AND MADE THE DEVIL PAY FOR THEM!"

As if they were doing me any good anyways [May. 28th, 2006|03:50 pm]

So Tuesday I'm going to be getting my wisdom teeth out. As such, I'll be out of the loop for a few days. I was planning on getting a bunch of movies that I hadn't seen, so I wanted to ask for some help getting a list together. If you'd like to make a suggestion, leave a comment! Alls I've got so far is Equilibrium and the 40 Year Old Virgin. Maybe Evil Dead 1&2.

I think a Minotaur found me [Feb. 21st, 2006|04:01 am]

It's been a while, but I can't really think of what I should say... I've been looking through my old journal entries fishing for memories about her and I found this little thing...

Describes how I feel right now pretty well.

I just figured out a way to count to 1023 on your fingers. Not terribly complicated for an engineering major, but it's still kind of cool. If you took the time to figure it out, stand up and face whichever direction my dorm/college is from wherever you are and hold up the number 132 to me for making you waste your time.
