Hello. I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is: No.

How can I trust someone that keeps saying one thing and doing another?

Confession : I'm not sure I can.

i'm thinking about moving back to the city where the folks live.
Spoiler:
this is a problem because i REALLY like the town i currently live in. it's groovy. i work for a good company (even if i'm not thrilled about my actual position but that may change).
i'm only bored when i want to be bored.
i have friends here.
but all of my family (well, nearly all) live in the other city along with a large number of friends from university.
the city i'm currently living in is outdoorsy, weird, fun, small-ish and considered generally one of the best places to live in the country.
the other city is large. "sprawl" is the term most often used to describe its shape. "outside" doesn't happen. the concrete makes it too hot to walk around aimlessly. parks are infrequent. there's a special type of arrogance associated with that city, "credit card rich". many of the people i know that currently live there are only there because of work. no other reason.
when people hear the name of the town, they shudder.
there would be good work there. i might even be able to do my research up there. i wouldn't have to live in the sprawling suburbs. there are neighborhoods that would fit my personality but they aren't cheap...
and my family live there.
this pretty much comes down to the fact that i don't know what to do after i finish the master's in may...

As far as I know the Coriolis effect shouldn't do anything to a space elevator synce its geosyncrhonus and the Coriolis effect simply forces moving objects into a circular path due to the relative difference in the radius of the earth when you're moving towards/away from its axis of rotation.

I love my teddy bear. His name is Harold. ('cause I bought him at Harrods, lol.) He is soft and nice and I will take him to college with me. I've had him since I was, like, eleven; my dad bought him at the airport when we were coming home from vacation in England.

All of my other stuffed animals are in a box in the attic, 'cause I could care less about them.
I wrote it in a style I fondly refer to as "unabashedly fancy" - i.e., "Fuck Zen minimalism, I'm gonna use all of my favorite words and stack loads of complex syntax n' modifying phrases'n'clauses in this motherfucker, goddamn."
