      I have insomnia. Haven't slept, even a wink, for two nights in a row and it's catching up with me. My eyes hurt, and now my mind is starting to slip... I came in to work today and spent almost ten minutes looking for my pager before I realized I had already picked it up and clipped it to my pocket. But my muscles have been getting their rest so that makes me an able bodied, slightly blind, moron smiley6.gif

      I'm actually thinking about trying to stay awake as long as I can, and still function at an acceptable level. To find out what my limitations are. Because when the zombie apocalypse comes you have to know what you are able to do smiley8.gif

    • A quote from, "Speaker for the Dead"...

      10 years ago

      duffman8472

      ... by Orson Scott Card

      A great rabbi stands teaching in the marketplace. It happens that a husband finds proof that morning of his wife's adultery, and a mob carries her to the market to stone her to death. (there is a familiar version of this story, but a friend of mine, a speaker for the dead, has told me of two other rabbi's that faced the same situation. Those are the ones I'm going to tell you.)

      The Rabbi walks forward and stands beside the woman. Out of respect for him the mob forbears, and waits with stones heavy in their hands. "Is there anyone here," he says to them, "who has not desired another man's wife, another woman's husband?"

      They murmur and say, "We all know the desire. But, Rabbi, none of us has acted on it."

      The Rabbi says, "Then kneel down and give thanks that god made you strong." He takes the woman by the hand and leads her out of the market. Just before he lets her go, he whispers to her, "Tell the lord magistrate who saved his mistress. Then he'll know I am his loyal servant."

      So the woman lives because the community is too corrupt to protect itself from disorder.

      Another rabbi, another city. He goes to her and stops the mob as in the other story and says, Which of you is without sin? Let him cast the first stone."

      The people are abashed, and they forget their unity of purpose in the memory of their own sins. someday, they think, I may be like this woman, and I'll hope for forgiveness and another chance. I should treat her the way I wish to be treated.

      As they open their hands and let and let the stones fall to the ground, the rabbi picks up one of the fallen stones, lifts it high over the woman's head, and throws it straight down with all his might. It crushes her skull and dashes her brains onto the cobblestones.

      "Nor am I without sin," he says to the people. "But if we allow only perfect people to enforce the law, the law will soon be dead, and our city with it."

      So the woman died because her community was to rigid to endure her deviance.

      The famous version of this story is noteworthy because it is startlingly rare in our experience. Most communities lurch between decay and rigor mortis, and when they veer too far, they die. Only one rabbi dared to expect of us such a perfect balance that we could preserve law and still forgive the diviation. So, of course, we killed him.

      It's obvious that epsilon used the holo-deck(yes i'm a star trek nerd smiley6.gif ) to actually appear and talk to Caboose. Caboose recognized the apparition. I was wondering who you think it is. I'm puting my money on Tex, but i could be wrong. It could be any part of the alpha AI that Caboose has met which includes: Church, Tex(tho we can't be 100% sure she's an AI, i'm 99% sure... otherwise she's actually a ghost... which would be awsome smiley0.gif ), Delta, Omega, or even the vicious combination of several AI's working to gether that we affectionatly know as "The Meta".

      I don't think it's church, cause that would be too easy.

      anyway let me know your theories... and we can form them up into one giant super theory, diabolical. smiley8.gif

      It came in today. Looks pretty sweet I haven't tried it yet cause I wanted the battery to be fully charged, but I have tomorrow off so I'm probably going to put through a series of tests starting with World of Warcraft. Then I might see how it runs Counterstrike. Then I'll give Bioshock a try. Then there only one thing left to do after that...

      Search the internet for porn smiley6.gif

      "There's a hole in the world like a great black pit/ and it's filled with people who are filled with shit/ and the vermin of the world inhabit it- but not for long! They all deserve to die! Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why: because in all of the whole human race, Mrs. Lovett, there are two kinds of men and only two. There's the one staying put in his proper place and the one with his foot in the other one's face- Look at me, Mrs. Lovett, look at you! No, we all deserve to die! Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why: Because the lives of the wicked should be- Made brief! For the rest of us, death will be a relief- We all deserve to die!"
