      How have you been?

      Sorry to pop in abruptly again, but I need a favour.

      A friend has been accepted into Oxford to complete a masters degree in neuroscience, but the fees are lots of monies :(

      Take 2 seconds out of your time and vote (peoples' choice scholarship). I'd be super-stoked. If you got your friends to vote too, I'd be even more super-stoked.

      By the way, I'll be stateside 23-1st June in New York, then 1-10th in Toronto. I'll be pretty busy freaking out/speaking at the conference in New York, and getting hammered- but if people are in the area, who knows, you may get to meet me! [email protected] is probably the best email address to email about that sort of thing.

      I am mucho excited.

      Why the hell does RT think excited is spelt wrong? Hmm, it didn't think it was spelt wrong that second time, but it's still underlined red the first time. How bizarre.

      So what's new? How is everyone?

      Someone want to learn about memory? I have a test Friday (that's your Thursday, past-people)

      It's interesting being here. Hard to believe it was always just a click away.

      Stripped profile down a bit. Better this way I think.

      I wish I could articulate my thoughts.

      My Infinity Mirror

      This is my baby, my infinity mirror. DEFINITELY the coolest thing I've ever made. The frame was taken from a clock I bought (I killed and ate the rest of it), lined with polystyrene/black tape with the LED Christmas lights strung within it (97 of them!). I bought the backing mirror custom from a glass cutting shop and tinted the front piece of glass so it became a one-way/two-way (whatever you want to call it) mirror. It's mostly finished now, the only changes I would possibly make would be to re-tint the glass better (nitpicking), glue down the inner frame, and spend awhile aligning the lights better. I'll also attach a better hook so I can hang it on the wall.

      Since it was made with Christmas lights, there also are various settings it can be set to (flashing, fading, twinkling, waves etc.), some of which look pretty cool, and some of which would probably give you a seizure.

      I actually have a nice video of an earlier prototype (which I've come to realise actually had better light alignment than the current one. I made some changes, added more lights in and screwed things up a little. Oh well) demonstrating all these pretty light modes, I just can't be bothered uploading it on youtube.

      I've been making this for the past wee while to distract me from other things, it's been a good project to keep me going. Now that it's done (mostly) I'll have to find another distraction pronto. Mass Effect 2 and university can't come soon enough.

      I feel the need to point out that I need a job not for the money to buy that stuff, although, I do need money, but so I will actually have something to do.

    • sphinxter

      Yes, I know I contradicted myself. I just reread what I said before. In my defense, they both were true at the time I said them. Seeing them many more times since then has got me to remember most of them including the ones who I named differently. How can it change that much in a day? I haven't even had the game sixty total hours yet, but I've already played twenty-five hours. At this rate, I won't even make it to rent Bulletstorm on the 22nd...much less Dragon Age 2 on the 8th...Looking around, I am tempted to go and buy the remake of Gold since that apparently has every legendary from every single game. That would be pretty awesome. Then again, the new ones come out the 4th...I need a job.

    • sphinxter

      You have to say them out loud to remember them? I usually remember them the first time reading their names. A few of them it takes facing them multiple times to get their names down, but it never takes long...Granted, I have recently played them and that's why their currently in my head. I assume you played it long ago. It's fairly safe to say that I won't remember all of them in a few years unless I do end up playing another one.

    • sphinxter

      5 years ago

      I can name plenty from Gold since I finished that. I assume some of those are from the first ones too. Even playing Platinum though, I can't name too many after Gold. Mostly because I have decided to change every single name this time around. Also, the names of these ones are incredibly stupid sounding. So, I wouldn't remember them anyway.

      That's pretty sick. Those Japanese dudes can do quite a few amazing things with quite a few different objects. I know a guy who can throw a softball sixty miles per hour behind his back. He does is as his actual motion though and not as a fake out like that.

      If it's an art form, then it's another art form I suck at. It took too long. It was awesome when I finally succeeded though. I was told it was like I had a plug in me and that the plug was holding back a raging river of puke. It was pretty awesome. That was the second time though. The first time I succeeded at puking, it was painful and I think blood filled. I wish I could master puking on command. That would be a very handy skill to have. I'd put that on a resume. Heck, I bet I could get a good job acting if I could puke on command.

      I think I can find a black dude. Heck, if I'm lucky, I can find a stereotypical black dude who is willing to knock a chick up and then just leave her anyway. I think this could actually work.

      My God, you're right. The only problem is that there aren't many mixed babies that get put up for adoption. At least, I would assume so. We should pay an Asian and a black to have sex with each other, have a baby, and then give it to us.

    • sphinxter

      5 years ago

      Who knows, maybe science will figure out a way to make it happen...Or, we could adopt. If we go that route, I vote it's either an Asian baby or a black baby. If it's the latter, we're holding tryouts to test their agility, strength, and stamina. We have make sure we get the best one so he'll grow up and be an athlete. That way, we can make tons of money off of him.

      The sad thing is that I'm only like 96% kidding about the whole thing.

      No, it doesn't have to be American history. It can be anything related to the history of anything.

      That doesn't surprise me. The more obscure and less "played" the person, the greater the chance he gets it wrong. I'm surprised they don't have it localized though. That would make the New Zealand ones pop up more. They only have it localized via language.

      Yeah, I just saw that on IGN and on XBOX 360 Achievements. It was all gone though. Oh well...I'll be getting a few of those things anyway and I'm sure that most of that stuff will be "useless" by the time the end of the game rolls around since there's probably stronger and better stuff in the game. That's at least what I'm telling myself. If only I wasn't a stupid human who has to sleep...Or if only I live in the future like you. I should file a complaint that Microsoft is prejudice against people who sleep and people who don't live in the future.

      So the Round Table talk turned out rather lame, due to agnostics. "I can't believe in a god due to hate, war, and death!" and being a natural devil advocate I would argue "You ever think about all that being human creation?" "Well, if that's the case then I could see good in god"

      Ugh, philosophy class has made me better at this game than I have expected.

      What, you can get it a full day before it releases? Or are you using midnight on the twenty-eighth as in 11:59 PM on the twenty-eighth and then in another minute it's the twenty-ninth, but still calling it midnight on the twenty-eighth or do you mean 11:59 on the twenty-seventh and then midnight is the twenty-eighth? In other words, do you do it the way most people do it and consider midnight part of the same day even though it's a new day or do you do it the official way? I'm confused. Either way, you'll probably get it around the same time as I will since I probably won't actually get it at midnight. I haven't decided yet. If I don't get it at midnight, I won't get it until around 2:00 PM. So, you could take another fourteen hours off of that.

    • sphinxter

      6 years ago

      Isn't that still two days? I mean, even if you're twenty-four hours exactly ahead, which you're not, I can pick up at midnight on the twenty-sixth. So, midnight on the twenty-seventh for you to midnight on the twenty-eighth is twenty-four hours. Midnight on the twenty-ninth is another twenty-four hours away. So, that's a full forty-eight hours after I pick up that you will be able to pick up and that's once again assuming you're a full twenty-four hours ahead of me. You're only eighteen hours ahead of me. So, add six hours to that to make fifty-four hours. Now, my math could be wrong somewhere, it wouldn't surprise me, but I'm pretty sure you have to wait more than one extra day in comparison to me...Although, if you found some place that is selling it early like they tend to do in other countries...

      Why is that going to be tough? Just do the exact opposite of what you did the first time around the second time around. After that, load up a save where you killed the council, saved the other person, and did other things different and do the same thing two more times. That's four easy playthroughs right there. After that, you're bound to repeat.
