The American "Family" Association is going to...
Mom: Sally, you can't use Google anymore. They support homos having all kinds of rights, including marriage, and we're against that. It'll tear up the social fabric of our society and threaten our religious freedom.
Sally: How am I supposed to do my homework?
Mom: Just go straight to wikipedia, Sally.
Sally: But my teacher says I have to use a peer-reviewed article from a reputable academic journal.
Mom: Then go to the journal's website.
Sally: How am I supposed to know what website that is without using Google?
Mom: You'll have to use Bing.
Sally: But Microsoft donated money to marriage equality campaigns.
Mom: I'll just take you to the library.
Sally: But my homework is due tomorrow, and, because of recent budget cuts, our library is closed on Mondays.
Mom: I'll just go speak to your teacher and get you an extension.
Sally: And say what, Mom? "I wouldn't let Sally do her homework because I'm afraid of what will happen if we treat people with respect and have that reflected in our legal system. I have this irrational fear that two consenting adults, who were willing to fight for the ability to love each other and have that represented in a legal and social contract that offers protection and stability for both them and whatever children they may have, may actually show up heterosexuals with our 50% divorce rate, because they clearly value what marriage is supposed to mean"? You can walk away now....Oh, and, by the way, we should probably quit paying the electric company as well. They had a float in the pride parade this year. Not to mention, it will help you achieve your fantasy of living in the Dark Ages.
Your living memory lifespan
By my calculations, you could exist in living memory for a global average of 178 years, assuming your bloodline is continued for at leasy 4 generation after yours. This is based on two statistics and a little personal experience: The global average human lifespan is roughly 70 years. The average global age at which a human has their first child is 27 years. My grandmother told me stories about...
An experimental recipe: Cheesy Chicken Bacon Hug
This is an experimental recipe we’re trying at the new place. This serves 1. Fry a chicken breast until each side is very lightly browned Remove the chicken from the pan and place it on a piece of tin foil, roughly 2.5 times the chicken breast’s length on each side. Sprinkle a strong grated cheese over the top of it. Cover the cheese with bacon, widthwise, tucking the ends of the...
Well, that's a year done.
So, yesterday I had my final exam. It was kind of a weird one to end on, done in 22 minutes of a maximum of 90, left the hall at the earliest opportunity (60 mins). This left me with 38 minutes in which to do whatever I wanted, as long as it involved not talking, moving, or looking at anything. So, of course, I figured out a Diamond Square algorithm variant for triangles, and then a variant for...
So, I’ve got an exam tomorrow, the first of my exams while at Uni. And tonight, the drunks outside decided to sing songs from Les Miserables, which put me on a sad song kick. Now I’m stuck listening to Achilles Heel and Runaway Train, unable to sleep. Ah well…
Regarding MtG Pauper EDH
I played an interesting game of Magic: the Gathering recently. It was a three-player game, Me (5-colour Voltron) vs a Naya Voltron and a Blue/White control player. The game proceded fairly normally, the control player being knocked out by a combined effort from the Voltrons which then proceded to duke it out between them. I emerged the victor from the fight.

Regarding the AVR Pre-Release
So, I went to the Sunday MtG Prerelease for Avacyn Restored. This event included a “Helvault”, a fancy cardboard box with a number of seals on it, that the players in the event removed by completing a certain number of achievements. Once opened, it provided the players with fabulous prizes, or so the hype would have you believe. Here, I will quote some Wizards promotional material from...
This blog's feeling a little neglected...
…So I thought I’d make a post. [[MORE]] Another semester’s gone by, shockingly quickly, in a flurry of coursework and bullcrap. Nothing of note has happened, academically, so lets jumps straight into the fun stuff. In terms of MtG, I’m up to 17 60CC decks, as well as 2 EDH and 1 Pauper EDH (Upkeep, Vampires, Kemba, Kor, Kithkin, -1/-1, Esper Modular, Zombies,...

Think about it: When you move your tongue around inside your mouth, you’re basically licking the inside of a skull ..Eugh..
I could create a whole blog on this, but no one I know of has referenced and bullet-pointed it better than John Bain. Listen up, folks: [[link]] Be sure to check out the sources he uses, they go into more detail.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here; first due to the end-of-semester rush to get all my work done, and second, due to chronic bone idleness. Now, though, I feel I should post something, so here’s what’s been goin’ on. Gaming Terraria: Patch 1.1’s come along, and for the life of me, I can’t get any of the content. The Wall of Flesh is a boss, in...

Smithing in Skyrim
Bethesda, let me teach you a little geology, metallurgy and chemistry. Quicksilver is Mercury, a metal that is liquid at room temperature. It is not suitable for smithing, and you can’t really get an ingot of it Orichalcum is brass, which is an alloy of Copper and Zinc. As far as I know, you don’t just find viens of it. Ebony is wood, not rock. You’re thinking of Obsidian,...
Second Person Narrative
Good news, everyone! You are now breathing manually, you are aware of both your blinking and your heartbeat. Your body is itching in at least one place, you are aware that your tongue doesn’t quite sit comfortably in your mouth, your jaw has weight and you’re having to use force to keep it closed, and that you could probably go for a snack right about now. Uncross your legs, stop...
While running some numbers for the water in my terrain generator, I’ve stumbled across an interesting statistic. It’s an oft-repeated general knowledge fact that the earth’s surface is 70% water, but according to my calculations, the earth’s surface’s VOLUME (that is, the volume boudned by the spheres between the earth’s center and the peak of Everest, and the...
Explaining Left and Right
Explaining left and right to someone with whom you can communicate, but cannot physically interact, is a problem that’s well documented. It’s an interesting puzzle, when you think about it. Assume you’re communicating to an alien, in orbit, and cannot transmit any visual information, nor can you interact with the alien in any way. The alien is at least as technologically advanced...
