Today I wanted a PB&J but didn't feel like making one, so I just took a spoonful of peanut butter and another one of jelly and mixed them in my mouth.

The result was surprisingly awesome.

My friend sent it to me, I was not gonna do it since it calls itself a color IQ test. Whatever that is supposed to mean. Seems more like a colorblind test, but more tedious/time consuming.


... Is it a bad sign that I instantly went into mental bubble-sorting mode to do the test?

The score thing gives me a 4, but according to the screenshot I made of the answer I submitted, and the GIMP's colour picker tool, I only got two wrong... weird.

[edit] OK, so the four spots it's marked as errors in that graph at the end are the two I got wrong, and the two on either side. I guess because they're not next to their correct neighbours. Which makes me wonder how it's possible to get a score of 1, 2 or 3, if a single pair wrong gives you a 4... maybe a single wrong pair at one end of one of the rows would score 3?

But anyway, only one wrong pair, on the cheap LCD on my work computer... I can live with that. Though, does it count as cheating to abuse the TN screen, and move your head up and down, so the colours shift slightly, and sometimes make the different colours more distinguishable?

Don't people in stores always call post-puberty male customers 'sir' (at least, if they have any sense of customer service)? I don't recall any other terms of address being used to me recently in shops (at a disturbingly young-looking 26).

I'm 19, and I definitely don't look older, and when strange people adress me, they also call me (the Dutch equivalent of) sir.

I can actually "hook" a frisbee, while keeping it perfectly parallel to the ground on the axis, so that it flies in a perfect semi-circular arc. I may be able to help you there.

None of us were that skilled, so we managed the curves by throwing an approximation via a lot of straight lines. I suspect the end result was probably somewhat less than textbook perfect. :P

It got confused in the middle, so we may have wound up summoning seraphim instead. I'm not sure.

Use more backspin, less arm, more wrist. Two fingers along ridge, pinky and ring finger in a "v" on inside of rim. Use your thumb to "flick". It also helps if you look at your target.

I'm glad someone posted a link to Rachel Maddow the other day. She's become a regular on my news feed, and I can watch her daily news program online.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/ is last night's show.

I quite enjoy her, because she's conscious of her bias, and yet still gives the political news I crave.

Haha! Dude sat down next to me, in an internet cafe in Dublin, and started watching hard core porn. At first I thought it was an accident, but he started browsing through the site. I started laughing and looking for the punk cam.

I thought the gig was funny, sorry if anyone found that offensive. Two sides on that coin. I would be grateful if the head master could beam me the hell out of here. Chopping wood would be an improvement. It's the same BS every time.

Peanuts are more full of it than anyone I've ever met. Check other sources. I'm allergic! Nothing more need be said.

Ok, that makes more sense. I turned off all mainstream "news" back in 2002, except for my stint where I was the IWO for the area. I had to watch 16 major "news" channels at once. That was...well I didn't like it much.

Since I moved away from home, I've never owned a TV. And then going to journalism school and getting a taste of working in broadcast news has only solidified my personal contempt for it. I keep thinking that maybe it's not as bad as I think - I don't watch it, so how could I know? - but then I catch glimpses at friends' houses or in public places and it comes through that, yes, CNN/MSNBC/Fox really is as vapid as I thought.

I use it to play with my computer, and keep in touch with my "kids". I gave up on network Television as a whole because it stopped putting worthwhile shows on for me.
