I suggest we have our meetings in the Butthead Memorial Auditorium... dammit I wish we hadn't let the students name that.

I've been watching through all the DVDs again, made it to that one yesterday.

Sucker! Competitive violence, that's why you're here!

I just had an idea. Maybe the reason the Atari Jaguar doesn't have a dust cover is because Atari thought that since a game would be in the slot the whole time it wouldn't need it.

40F is a brisk day, depending on wind.  40C is hot as hell!

No, I mean actual temperature not comparing the identical numbers.

What is 70F in Celsius?

What is 32F in Celsius?

0C
158F
Nope 70F is 21C
And 32F is 0C

So, in the winter it makes it seem colder to say "it's 0 degrees  out there" without really specifying that it's degrees Celsius.

Likewise in the summer it seems much hotter if you say "whew, it's 70 degrees in the shade right now!" without specifying that you're talking in degrees Fahrenheit.

When I was a kid, like in fifth grade. my teacher said we all had to learn the metric system because in a few years the whole country (U.S.) was going metric! We had tests, I studied, I was desperate to learn the metric system...

Years later, in high school and college, there was no metric system. We always had everything spelled out in Imperial and Metric units. AND, as a World History major I had to learn measurements for long dead systems!

My head is all screwed up with cubits, feets and metres... (yes, I spelled "metres" like a Europey dude, I have a head all full up of mush!)

Fucking schools...

Yes, LOL!!!

Years later, I learned Latin, Greek and Elvish. Also, some Kilngon, (although I am not proud of that), but I forgot all of it.

I'm old, damnit!

Kahplaugh!

I guess this is a random thought.  I'm a lucid sleeper, And also, (I don't know if this is considered lucid dreaming or not), often times, I'm aware of reality while sleeping.  I know, some call that "being awake."  I'm talking about being aware while sleeping.  Anyway-
I was asleep this morning. Saw this arm coming over the edge of my pillow, reaching for my face.  I was just about to shriek like a 5 year old, when I realized it was my own arm!   I felt really stupid, but didn't tell anyone, except  everyone here on this forum. 

You know, just recently, I had a sleep paralysis episode. Many UFO abduction, dudes, and ghost hunters, etc. have been explained with the idea of sleep paralysis.

Intellectually, I thought this was sound until I actually had one.

I woke, but wasn't really awake, and I thought my hands were held down. My rational mind scrambled to makes sense of this. I thought my wife was holding me down.

When I realized that wasn't the case, I noticed I had to go to the bathroom. Now, I got up, in the dark, and was terrified.

I was sure there was some "Other Presence" in the room. Again, my rational mind kept screaming at me that everything was fine and there are no such things as ghosts or monsters.

But, I can understand, if I wasn't a total atheist, I would have sworn that aliens or demons surrounded me. It took a long time for me to calm myself and realize I was having a sleep paralysis episode. But, if there were people that are susceptible to this crap, their minds would run wild.

Believing is seeing, my brothers and sisters!

So, believe in nothing!

Rev. Randy!

I am a dirt worshipping pagan. But science and rationality reigns in my mind.

Religion and superstition is fun, but science is the vegetables of my mental diet... GODS! That sounded pompous as all hel!

Also, it helps that science does not threaten our ideas of Nature, indeed, it only reinforces them.

Religion, gods, magic, it's all just candy.

I love you, Swipe! (yes I am drunk!). How is your father?
