One glass too full, neither of them too empty. Yet.

March 9th, 2007 (11:55 pm)

Earlier today I was reading the autobiography of one Ben Franklin. In it it talked of ups and downs and all that nonsense, but then it reached a point where I really started to feel what he was writing. He had just earlier talked about how writing should either entertain or educate; seeing as this is doing effectively neither I will cut it rather short.

I am tired, although I had a rather illustrious day today. I really enjoyed myself today, although the ladder half was sortof akward. It can be so very hard to feel as if you are in more than just your own little bubble of life sometimes, at least for me.

Just rambling.
Ed infinitum.

The Internal Combustion Gnomes

irritated

current location: dorm
the internal echoes: irritated
the external echoe: "We built this city" by Starship

Yep. Even with overwhelming proof, some people still believe the world is 6000 years old, and that god made them, as completely separate things as everything else.
If there is only one lesson taught by biology, it is that all beings, plants and animals, are part of the same VERY big family tree.
People often say "I ain't no goddamn monkey!"
and I'm like "Well, you aren't I can only assume. Now, we did share a common ancestor with monkeys about 15 million years ago. 9 million years ago, we shared a common ancestor with the chimpanzee, which we didn't stop mating with until 4.5 million years ago."

We also share a common ancestor with the pea plant, not to mention every other speck of life on this planet, except for maybe the virus.
I plan on being a professor of evolutionary biology. I am definitely a neo-Darwinist; anyone who disagrees with that current theory of evolution really, really needs to check their shit.

Especially when they are like "My invisible sky daddy did it, 6000 years ago."
That's not even a fucking competing theory; that's baby talk. It's exactly like if someone walked up to you and said "It's not gas that runs your car, but magical gnomes inside. They talk to me, and I pray to them and everyone needs to eat their flesh and drink their blood with us during communion so that they can be saved from all of the naughty things they've ever done."

and then you said "What the fuck, I know that it is gasoline combustion because I have studied this. It is so scientifically well documented it is silly to argue."
People are so fucking willingly ignorant sometimes.

Not only that... then they try and argue that "No, we have evidence that it was, in fact, the gnomes."

Definitely a must fucking see. I would be willing to like, do anything as serious as buying someone a coke or giving myself a small burn or something if it would just get them to watch these three videos. It is so important, in my opinion. This is so often overlooked it's not even fucking funny.
Then again, I could be completely wrong and this could somehow be common knowledge.

"Legendary physicist David Deutsch is author of 'The Fabric of Reality' and the leading proponent of the multiverse intrepretation of quantum theory - the astounding idea that our universe is constantly spawning countless numbers of parallel worlds. In this rare (and delightfully engaging) public appearance, he weaves a complex and captivating argument placing the study of physics at the center of our species' survival."

This well of meaningful communication seems to have run dry; I plan to still post, but it seems so outdated now. This is a link to something that I found very touching, and maybe you will too.

the internal echoes: devious
the external echoe: "Mr Bo Jangles" by the nitty gritty dirt band

I just thought that this conversation was worth saving. The names have been changed to protect the innocent (notice, my name was left as-is.)

A look into the humor of a malgrown embryoCollapse )

the external echoe: "You spin me right round" or something by Marylin

Met a few cool people today. Jetskiis and snorkeling are in my future for this weekend!!! Oh I'm so happy to be here; so happy I feel silly.

On another note, I doubt this journal needs to be "friends only" any longer; I think I have been in hidden status long enough to deter my stalker from using this journal to garnish unearned respect for herself.

Good to see you stopped by; leave a comment!

happy

current location: dorm
the internal echoes: happy
the external echoe: "G#d save the internet" by some sappy modern band

So, today I went snorkeling, ate nasty Japanese food and got enrolled in a Japanese class. I also picked up the autobiography of Bill Clinton; hopefully it will be worth a gander.

I think I'm addicted.Collapse )

The best part? It only cost me four dollars.

Oh, and the next time I go out I am bringing a camera!

So Great, it just kills me

chipper

the internal echoes: chipper

You know you feel a purging fire come on Matt... but are you going to be gutsy enough to go ahead and do it?

Anyways, here's what happened to me today.

I hung out with the most AMAZING woman all day today. We had a blast. We talked, we played a few card games and then we ran around outside together like silly children. After that, we got together in the park, really late at night and ran around the neighborhood setting things on fire. We even jumped into a pair of trashcans and rolled down the giant hill near the post office... it was a blast.

She soothed my horrible headaches and sadness by kissing my forehead, and then laughed at me, telling me it was because I was silly and emo.

When we got back inside we both logged onto livejournal together and made fun of all of the random, crazy people who waste their time trying to reach out to strangers; you should have seen the comments about that she left in my journal.

We fell asleep on the roof, wrapped up in blankets together, wiping each other's tears with our lips.

Yeah, today was a blast.

For those of you who are weak of stomach, you can just skip this next paragraph; just give me a worthwhile reason to add you and I will.Collapse )
