You say you want an Evolution
". . .Half of American polled believe that humans were created as they currently are in God's own image less than 10,000 years ago"

Are they fucking serious?

I mean, really?

Holy shit!

I'm not getting into the scientific evidence, or anything like that, because I hope it would be preaching to the choir to do it here.

But. . .damn!

If someone were to propose a community, not an online community but a real-life group of living spaces, designed for and by nerds, what would you want to see? This cna be anything from T1 lines to a pet for every occupant.

Just to get a feel for what may be my latest scheme.

It's that time of year again....
I want to give a shout out to the man of the hour, that's right - Jesus of Nazareth - not that I aint down with 'Hey Zeus' as well. 'Hey Zeus' just isn't recognized as the savior of humanity is all.I got much love for you, Jesus *pats chest, kisses fingers and extends hand out to form a peace sign*. What I want to say is that some people tend to forget the true meaning of Christmas, it's not about spending money or preparing a lavish meal- it's about Jesus. Although I'm an atheiest, I admire the values of Christianity and I celebrate the man who gave his life for those values. The shape the world is in at present sickens me. I did a social experiment recently where I asked random people certain moral based questions, which had resulted in the fact that younger generations are devolving morally with increasingly selfish behavior. Not one of the people would make a sacrifice to help someone if it caused even a minor interruption in their lives, although at Christmas time more people were willing to offer assistance to someone in need. I have come to the conclusion that a human beings willingness to help others comes not from the goodness of their heart but from guilt.

People tend to be more cordial with each other during the holidays as well, is that guilt bleeding though as well? I'd say yes. Recently a man (my boss in this case) who had never offered anyone in our office a simple smile or a friendly hello gave us both and a hefty christmas bonus to boot. Why was he motivated to kindness on our last day of work, one word - guilt. He knows that we work our asses off to ensure that our company looks good and prospers and he never acknowledges that fact. He knows that he denied two dedicated and hardworking employees their much deserved annual raises so he could be rewared from corporate for coming in under budget. Yes, people tend to be self serving with a lack of morals in this modern age and if the bible was true - brace yourself for the apocalypse. Oh, and have a Wonderful Holiday.

Sincerely:Your friendly neighborhood moderator.

I'm pretty sure I've seen some people say that they're rpgers here.

I'm running a mini-campaign featuring a town taken over by dopplegangers. I've got the basicas hashed out, but I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts or ideas about how I could have the town be assimilated in such a way that a few level twos from out of town could tell something was up?

Half-Empty or Half-Full? The overthinking of a glass at 50% capacity
So...I was talking to my students today about the half-empty/half-full question in reference to the often-asked about glass.

Because I'm sure at least a few of you are interested:

For those techy nerds out there - and to maybe kickstart this group!:

The news today is buzzing about Sergey Brin's dicussion that Google may be compromising their ethical values to conduct business in China.  Do people think companies like Google and Microsoft should operate under rules (ie censorship) that don't allign with US ethics?  There are millions of people who could benefit from Google, whether its crippled or not - isn't a censored Google better than no Google?

Net Neutrality
First, my part:

Save the Internet: Click here

If you don't know about it, please do click on the link and learn about what's up with the whole situation. I don't know how that would affect Mexico or other countries, but I am doing my research as of now). I'm not willing to let OTHERS get screwed up without me lifting a finger, for many of my friends will get directly affected; such dishonorable schemes by overpowered enterprises should not be allowed to meet completion.

Also, read this: http://www.savetheinternet.com/blog/

If you're a U.S. citizen, I believe this should be even MORE important to you.

Keep up the funk with everlasting boogie!

demoticons from badgas
A tip for being a good Troll.

I loathe lj cuts almost as much as I loathe emoticons.

Don't use emoticons; use "demoticons". Emoticons were invented to stop people getting offended by messageboard comments; a demoticon is a combination of emoticons designed to cause offence. 

Whether you're a pseudo-Zionist upsetting neo-Nazis with talk of Jewish supremacy or a pseudo-Creationist ruffling gay feathers with fervent claims that "God Hates The Gays", you might find the following dictionary of standard MSN demoticons useful. By all means use them. But, even better, create your own.

Demoticon Dictionary

I am a homo
I don't like homos
I fully support al Qaeda
I am from New Zealand
I am a racist
I can't achieve an erection
You are a fucking geek and I'd like to punch you in the face
I enjoy anal rape
I like golden showers
I strongly disapprove of mixed-race marriages
I enjoy laughing at people who suffer from bad acne
I have perpetrated date rape on at least one occasion
I often drink too much and end up having sex with ugly women
I hate ravers
I regularly practise oral sex with dogs
I'm going on a Thai sex holiday tomorrow
That's the last time I go down on a prostitute
I hate French people
People who enjoy office parties are cunts
I like making sick phonecalls
Sending letters full of anthrax to Americans is good fun
I am an enthusiastic consumer of internet animal porn
I saw your mom in a porn
Hello, son. Do you want to see some puppies? Don't tell anyone.
I hate Ray Charles

Reclaim the Internet from the brainless
Offend everyone. 
Offend them eloquently. 
But, most importantly, long live the demoticon!
