James Bond

In a way, its quite refreshing to watch a James Bond movie like "Octopussy." The Russian communists are the bad guys, and while there are some who are honorable, others very clearly have the destruction of the West as their goal. I much prefer this more realistic view to the one of "they all just had their people's best interests in mind" that I frequently encounter on campus.

Oook Oook

One of my favorite things to read is the Weekly World News which is one of the funniest and strangest "newspapers" around. From their December issue comes the story of a practical test of the old monkeys and typewriters saying. Also, note the mention of blogs, heh heh.

Book Game


I got this from Happy Catholic
  1. Grab the nearest book
  2. Open the book to page 123
  3. Find the fifth sentence
  4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog, along with these instructions.
  5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it. Just grab what is closest!

The closest book happened to be "The Nitpicker's Guide For Next Generation Trekkers Volume II" by Phil Farrand. The episode entry is for "The Big Goodbye".


"When first entering the holodeck, Picard makes a log entry detailing the working of the holodeck. Given a total suspension of disbelief, one must ask, "Exactly who will review this entry? Are there twenty-fourth-century Starfleet individuals who do not understand what a holodeck does? (Acutally we professional nitpickers call this sort of thing a "cabbageism.")"

Yes. I'm a geek, so what's your point?

Dean Chairman.... Or Is It Chairman Dean? I Can Never Remember....

Howard "The Duck" Dean spoke in front of a crowd at Liberty Hall the other day. He said that the Democrats need to appeal to the Conservatives more, which really is the only way that they will survive as a party of force. In a daring move sure to win him a great deal of support among the right, he accused Conservatives of being evil. "This is a struggle of good and evil. And we're the good” said Chairman Dean. Conservatives are not allowed to call Liberals un-patriotic, but calling Conservatives evil is ok. Well, at least its in keeping with his usual tactics of wild-eyed insanity.


Update: I have received an e-mail asking why I refered to him as "The Duck." Three reasons, really.
1) "Howard The Duck" was the title of an awful movie that annoyed me so much that whenever I hear the name Howard, I am reminded of it.
2) That strange, cartoon duck like yell of his from the primaries.
3) He is a doctor (Quack). This last one is rather mean, but I'm not overly fond of being called "evil."


 

I'm A Gnome!

Well, I took the test that She Who Will Be Obeyed has posted a link to.... and I'm a gnome mage. Heh heh.


I Am A: Lawful Good GnomeMage


Alignment:
Lawful Good characters are the epitome of all that is just and good. They believe in order and governments that work for the benefit of all, and generally do not mind doing direct work to further their beliefs.


Race:
Gnomes are also short, like dwarves, but much skinnier. They have no beards, and are very inclined towards technology, although they have been known to dabble in magic, too. They tend to be fun-loving and fond of jokes and humor. Some gnomes live underground, and some live in cities and villages. They are very tolerant of other races, and are generally well-liked, though occasionally considered frivolous.


Class:
Mages harness the magical energies for their own use. Spells, spell books, and long hours in the library are their loves. While often not physically strong, their mental talents can make up for this.


Deity:
Mystra is the Neutral Good goddess of magic. She is also known as the Lady of Mysteries. Followers of Mystra wear armor and carry shields with her symbol on them. Mystra's symbol is a ring of stars.
