Recently (sorry no post yesterday) I am most happy for beautiful women of all sorts who enjoy taking their clothes off, and will take the drinks from any idiots not paying attention to them. Granted, that's the sort of thing that stays with you...

Burlesque Downtown Underground is back at Union Station doing their show this week; remember, it's always 'educational'!

Link is worksafe, as it's a KC Star article about the show; their MySpace is worksafe too, actually, or at least PG.

I don't have any commentary on the VP debate last night. I was instead out listening to Slayer, speaking at an AoG church, speeding, folding newsletters, eating dinner, kicking my fiancée's ass at pool, and having sex. It's an exciting, fun-filled life I lead.

I might watch it on the retreads, but for right now I'm enjoying other people's interpretations of it. And I'm just pleased Biden didn't catch a fatal case of Foot-in-Mouth disease.

For now, though, that meme:
In honor of Sarah Palin's having been stumped by Katie Couric when she asked the Vice Presidential candidate to name any Supreme Court decision other than Roe v. Wade, we have a meme. The Rules: post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your LJ. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) Pass on the educational fun!

Since Palin was actually asked to name a case she disagreed with, how about... oh, I dunno, Dred Scott (not really a person)? Bush v. Gore (nuff said)? Roth v. United States (obscene material is still not protected speech)? I had to look up the case name on the last one, but I remember looking that one up offline before there was a World Wide Web...

Y'know, I think this meme was a lot easier to manage last time around, when people asked you the questions in your own journal... it'll take me a few days to hunt around and find everyone.

In the meantime, here's the rules and the first two, from some new friends in Hotlanta:
  1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me." (or words to that effect)
  2. I will respond by asking you 5 questions of a very personal nature.
  3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
  4. Include these rules and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
  5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them 5 questions.

The people I stole this from are much cooler/more popular than I, but it's a worthwhile venture nevertheless:

I know how all of you are just dying to do something fun on this dreary Monday morning. So here it is! Time for a FRIENDING FRENZY! So tell your friends and have them tell their friends! It'll be a meme of wacky proportions. No lurkers or wallflowers here; everyone should post a little something about themselves. Or a lot. Whichever you feel led to do. If you have a picture, throw that on there too.

So let's get some new friending action going here, people!

Many of you already know each other. However, some of you don't; why not start today (unless you're like me and you already read too many LJs in a day...). And some of you probably don't know that you know each other... yano?

To avoid brain fog, here's a clever lil' meme, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] zianuray by way of [livejournal.com profile] featherynscale:

Ask me seven questions. Not just any seven questions though. No, to keep it interesting, use the seven questions as per below - just copy and paste the following, replace the blanks with something you want to know/ask (e.g. 3. Donkeys or sandcastles and why?), anything you want, personal, silly, surreal or deep, comment away and I'll answer honestly.

  1. What do you think of _____________ ?
  2. When did you last ____________?
  3. __________ or ___________ and why?
  4. What did you ______________?
  5. What's your favorite ______________?
  6. How would you ______________?
  7. Who would you most like to ________ ?

Just one more percentage point, and I'd be toast...

Your Score: The Frog


You scored 39% domestic, 39% gregarious, 35% trickster, and 44% intellect!




Wild, Solitary, Serious and Emotional: you are the Frog!

Sensitivity, regeneration, renewal. In many cultures, frogs are a strong symbol of luck and wealth. Frog medicine teaches the power of transforming oneself, a natural path of change that occurs over a lifetime. Frog is also a symbol of femininity and fertility, and natural healing. Frog people tend to be pleasant, positive, and well in-tune with the energies around them.


This test categorized you based on four different axes of personality, which were then associated with a different animal. The four axes, as well as all possible results are explained below.

Still haven't gotten to that actual contentful-post, but these were too good to pass up:

  1. 10 Universities Offering Free Science Courses Online - nuff said (again, courtesy of the friends-list of [livejournal.com profile] anachrotech). I wonder if someone has a Calculus refresher course...
  2. LiveJournal Add-Ons for Firefox - the ability to unfold lj-cuts on the fly, expand all comments on large pages at once, etc, is neat; haven't explored all the other junk in this extension, but it seems well-coded, if a bit heavy.

Back home. Worst thing we saw on the road (besides the expected 837 cars-in-ditches, since it snowed an inch) was a Hummer pulled over by the State Patrol. I didn't even know those things could GO fast enough on level ground to get arrested for speeding...

Und now, a quiz.
Does this make sense to you? )

  1. Has anyone else found Google Image Search much less useful in the last week or so? It seems like all of a sudden the total number of results, and the relevance of said results, is much lower than I remember it being... particularly for copyrighted images due to the meme going around last week (that I'm still working on), but it seems to be returning less data in general. Maybe they changed their algorithm?
  2. Anyone know of an LJ-trick/3rd-party tool that will allow you to shift people from one Filter Group to another? http://www.livejournal.com/friends/editgroups.bml is a pain-in-the-ass, frankly, when trying to shift a bunch of people from Default to Secondary or Local to Long-Distance, for example; what I really want is to be able to drag-and-drop people from one group to another. Not sure if any of the clients do this, I haven't messed with them before. My friendslist is spiraling upward out of "manageable" though...
I think that's it. Other stupid questions gladly taken in response, I'll trade you a stupid answer.

I know, I know, that's ironic coming from my live-in library house, but there's two books I've been trying to get copies of after (un)wisely selling them to a used book store in my youth (in order to get more books, natch).

I mean, here's a fun interactive meme, based on the Golden Compass film that's coming out later this year (which I haven't read the books to):



Incarnations so far: ocelot, domestic cat, lynx, ocelot, domestic cat, lynx, ocelot... I'm going in circles here, kids. Oops, just changed myself to an ermine by agreeing with almost everything. WTF? And now back back to ocelot, then domestic cat...heh. It's like a feline carousel.

P.S. In some ways, the website version is more interesting, because it tells you how many times you've changed.

Thing One: Somebody discovered kryptonite. Well, sort of. Thanks for this story go to [livejournal.com profile] zylch, who gets her news eight hours ahead of the rest of us. ;)

Thing the Second: [livejournal.com profile] montecook (formerly of Wizards of the Coast) has an LJ. And he's a big dork (and no one was surprised, again). But he's funny, at least.

Thing C: Meme from Friday, held over on account of interest )

On a completely different scale/note from my last post, a thought-experiment has been rattling around my brain, about what would happen if you scaled down a planet's diameter but kept the same mass/gravity. That led to discovering this fine gem, which is ostensibly a "how much energy would it take the Death Star to blow up your constructed world" calculator, but also gives numbers for things like planetary diameter at different densities and the like. Unless something's wrong with the calculator, however, I don't understand why holding surface gravity constant at 1g while decreasing diameter would result in a decreasing mass, as well as increasing density. What am I doing wrong here? It seems to calculate fine for the inner terrestrials, but if I decrease diameter to 10,000km and hold gravity steady, mass decreases by almost 40%!

That seems impossible, unless I missed something in elementary physics... ::edit:: and of course, I did: Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, and I screwed up gravity and gravitation. Thanks [livejournal.com profile] liquidfun!
