I looked up that term on wikipedia and wiktionary, but they hadn't heard of the word, so I concluded it wasn't what I was looking for.

I believe this is the ideal wake-up music.

As everyone who has played the game are suddenly overcome with an almost irresistible urge of installing it as soon as it's even mentioned (let alone the theme music is played), I expect I will attempt to install it in my sleep. This will position me in front of my computer screen, which is brighter than a thousand suns, thus telling my brain that it's time to wake up.

Preferably a song that's awesome right from the beginning. My last ones have been "Bastard's Waltz" by the Cancer Bats, and "Heterosexual Man" by the Odds.


Look through some of Pink Floyd's stuff. Especially Time. It has the bells and alarms to wake you up, then the chilled out section as you drag your eyelids open, then it kicks off with lyrics about wasting your life. If that's not motivating, I don't know what is.

I read that twice, and the first time it was a lot more 'the cat'ty than the second times. Mainly because I thought 'Kwh' was a sound, and not a unit. It was still very 'the cat' though :)

They're made for skiing, though. You really don't need particularly warm clothes when you do that (just something wind and water proof), as you keep warm from doing a strenuous physical activity.

I saw the fora being indexed by a plagiarism detection service the other day.

It shouldn't affect anyone who actually reads this sort of thread, but for those who just spam their homework problems, and expect someone to write an answer for them (which, unfortunately, actually does happen far too often), if it's a significant piece of work, then they're now less likely to get away with it.

Battle Without Honor or Humanity (Kill Bill) - obviously

If you like waking up to hard rock:

Black Sabbath - Iron Man, Turn Up the Night, I, NIB, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabbra Cadabra, Symptom of the Universe

Modest Mouse - Invisible

Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song, Kashmir

Molly Hatchet - Beating the Odds

Scorpions - almost anything from their 'best of' CDs

TSO - Beethoven, Requiem


My choice for the best wake-up song, though, would be Brand New Day from Dr. Horrible.

I'm riding the bus into work, and after giving up my seat to a lady who is round-abouts 350 pounds, she pulls out a box of Hostess tiny cake products.

I think to myself, this angers me. Not because she is doing what she will with her life, but because I enabled her to sit down and continue her self-destructive behavior. This causes another thought to twig up.

Am I supposed to be evil, and I just missed the memo?

I've spent most of my life being "good". I've helped people I don't know, and will likely never meet again, just because I saw them in need. I've held friends who've lost loved ones, without any thought to my plans or own personal needs. I served 10 years in the military, giving up my health, happiness, and future. I've picked up injured animals, and taken them to rescues, or vets. I donate money, time, knowledge, resources...but there is still this niggling little feeling in the back of my head.

I've had opportunity after opportunity to be very, very evil. Things have thrown themselves in my path, offered me chance after chance to do the "wrong" thing without fear of reprisal or punishment, and yet I've never even considered doing them. It is only now, in retrospect, that I noticed the pattern. Because my life is not the best right now, to put it lightly, I wonder if I took the wrong path.

I don't believe in a deity. I kind of believe in spirits, in the Shinto/Taoist tradition. I certainly don't believe in predestination. But what if there is such a thing. What if I was predestined to be a great force for evil, with all of the opportunities to do wrong, and I've just taken the wrong turns. What if my life is punishment for not doing what was expected of me. What if all the cruelty, the depravity, the harm and hurt I've experienced was to train me to be evil.

I need a cookie.
