So, Deepest Sender has taken it's own pretty time getting set up, OMG. Seriously, it's on version 0.7.7 now and I had to go all the way down to version 0.6.5 (which I had before) to get something that would install and NOT crash mozilla.
Um.
I was going to explain about how my 30 hour trip to Charlotte North Carolina (omg!) was actually not that bad, except for the bit where we were in La Guardia Airport and it was gross and all the food had copious amounts of oil or mayonnaise and I wanted to cry, but whatever.
I am now at my aunt's house, upstairs in my OWN ROOM which is a guest room, with really fast internet and my VERY SEXY LAPTOP which I love even though it has only 3 USB slots and no PS2 slots and also DID NOT COME WITH THE WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION CD. I shall complain to IBM about that, because wtf, I payed for XP so I should get a copy.
On the bright side, my aunt and my uncle and my cousin Linus are very cool. Especially my cousin, who at eight years of age is the only pre-adolescent child in the world that I like, probably. He's wonderfully bizarre and charming and by turns incredibly somber and hysterically giggling. Seriously. His current obsession is with surge protectors and various extension cords (he knows more about how to plug my laptop in than I do). He also enjoys taking videos of his feet and photographing sockets.
He used to like vents, before, and he makes me feel vaguely tempted to eventually settle down and have a child in the hope that mine is as entertaining.
Um. I'm going to forget about the wimsical bit of this entry and get to the pop culture reviews.
Ok, I watched Inside Man on the plane, which was the coolest psychological thriller/bank robbery/criminal movie ever. Also, Clive Owen <3. Seriously. Which puts it in that category with Syriana for cool drama like politicalesque thrilling things. I suspect Crash would also be there, but I've yet to watch it alas.
Today, I discovered the randomly cool fact that apparently Chuch Palahnuik is gay from Travis, which Wikipedia confirms. Which makes him even awesomeer for writing a book about sex addiction and choking on food and of course Fight Club.
Speaking of gay writers, I finally read something by David Sedaris, i.e. Me Talk Pretty One Day. It is quite possibly the funniest book ever. Easily the funniest non-fiction book I've ever read. Sedaris has a very healthy appreciation of how fucking absurd the world is, a wacky family and a past involving meth and performance art, so you know, you SHOULD READ IT RIGHT NOW.
Also, today I listened to NPR which made me giggle like none other. I mean, they play news and everything (btw, this Jonbenet shit? Get over yourself, America. It's not important) and eventully they include stuff about events of geopolitican significance...
But they're so lyrical! They speak as if they're writing a war  novel and it's the radio so recorded voices sound fnny and ON TOP OF THAT they have to speak slowly so that people understand. And it's impossible to take it seriously when the construction of every other sentence makes me giggle.
Um. Right. 5 am. must sleep. bye.

I would just like to say that Liz wins at life for having a hedgehog pet. The skinny one in the pictures is hers.

Also, lately my music listening habits have been incredibly bizarre. Since WMP 11 has ridiculously fast searching, my playlists have been the results for random searches. Two days ago I had "wee" and "lie", yesterday I had "truth" and now I have "like."
You should totally give me random suggestions about playlists.

Ok, random things...
I'm rather excited about my dorm room now, after obsessively looking it up. I feel rather tempted to facebook the previous inhabitant. Hurray East Campus!
Also, I had a bizarre surge of MIT excitement yesterday night. Well, really today morning, as I've been making a habit of going to sleep at 6am. So the worst thing about sleeping when the sun rises is that you don't really want to go to sleep, but you know you must because otherwise your dad will find you awake and yell and also you'll be tired in the afternoon and so you try to go to sleep. And I haven't had a surge of excitement since I GOT IN, which was, you know, wildly exciting because I really wasn't expecting it and I wanted it so badly. It's really strange to get something you want that badly.
But you know, everybody has been asking, are you excited about college? And sometimes I say yes, but when I'm being honest, I usually reply with, "No, not yet. I'm rather enjoying indolence." Which makes me wonder... If it was possible to live a life of perpetual sloth and not go to MIT and not have to worry about my financial well-being, would I do it? I mean, I don't think I need human contact that badly, and a life of guaranteed sloth is quite appealing. But would I die of intellectual deprivation?
I honestly don't know the answer, but I'm hoping I'd go for the "work my ass off at college, but have fun anyway" route. Oooff, responsibility. What a burden.
Also, my mom, also being obsessive, called the school and got my IB PIN for me, so I now have my IB scores. And um. The strangest thing happened.
I got a five in psych. This would be Standard Level Psychology, which I've expected a seven in since like, first semester junior year when Ms. Morrison told me nonchalantly, "You'll be one of my sevens." So now I want to know, what crack is being smoked and by whom and can I get some?
Seriously. It's so absurd that I'm not even upset or disappointed, because it's like... I don't know, finding a purple cat in your closet. Bothersome, maybe, and totally fucked up, but ultimately great entertainment.
Ok, now I really want a purple cat.
Also, I've rediscovered the Thrills, who are perfect for the kind of mood I'm in right now.
Really. They're these Irish kids who sing like they're from Southern California. And they have these happy songs that are actually really depressing, kind of like Rilo Kiley or Eisley.
Also, Crystal CUT HER HAIR. And she looks incredibly hot and I think I may have to jump her when we have dinner tonight. So, apologies in advance, I CANNOT CONTROL MY LUST.
Seriously, I have a major girls-with-short-hair thing. You want to get in my pants? Cut your hair.
Finally. Even though I may move to California because it seems to be a the only sane place in the US (and yes, the rest are insane), it's always good to know that Europe is awesome and also has embryonic stem-cell research. On that topic, you should probably read this editorial, which rather awesomely explains the false dilemma that is embryonic stem cell research.

**** THE PROOF THAT Sharmin IS EVIL ****

S H A R M I N
19 8 1 18 13 9 14 - as numbers
1 8 1 9 4 9 5 - digits added
\_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_________/
1 8 1 9 9 - digits added

Thus, "Sharmin" is 18199.


Add 39, the symbol of disease - the result is 18238.

Turn the number backwards, and add 1954 - the year Elvis recorded his debut single, putting the end to all morality and good taste. The number is now 85235.

Subtract 1958, the year Nabokov's "Lolita" got published. The result will be 83277.

Add 71 to it - this is the symbol of domination, written backwards - you will get 83348.

Add 52 to it - this is the symbol of approval for the sin, written backwards - you will get 83400.

This number, when read backwards, gives 00438. This, written in octal, gives 666 - the number of the Beast.

Enough said - QED.

How to blow shit up spectacularly with liquid nitrogen.


The tanks, and some random liquid nitrogen

Right, so how this works is that liquid nitrogen wants to be a gas, so pressure builds up. And normally, there's something on the tank that lets you relieve pressure. But one tank at Texas A&M was welded shut... since about 1980...

So here's what happened... )

While discussing possible DJ names for someone Frank knows, he mentions the idea "DJ Epileptic Otter.

Frank says:
The new Bangkok Aquarium got an otter. It was epileptic.Saw flashing lights, fell in the water, drowned.
You should've seen people's faces when it died. It's like a fish drowning. It's like a bird getting a wing cramp.

What Video Game Character Are You? I am Mr Do.I am Mr Do.


I am sedentary by nature, enjoying passive entertainment, eating when the mood takes me, and playing with my food. I try to avoid conflict, but when I'm angered, I can be a devil - if you force me to fight, I will crush you. With apples. What Video Game Character Are You?
I'm listening to music from my old choir in Egypt. Damn they were good. At least the uber elite Chamber Singers were. My best friend was a Chamber Singer! :)

I know, you guys all thought I'd died and gone away. Or some such nonsense. Well, FYI I don't leave until the 15th for the States. So, the following little... character sketch? character sketches, plural? may not make all that much sense to you if you don't know the inside joke I'm refering to. But anyway, I hope you enjoy!

I have long joked about my (heavily suppressed) inner sadist and inner romantic plotting a coup over tea, but recently I think another character has joined them.

The only thing funnier than the thought of Legolas/Gimli slash is the fact that it actually exists. Well, now we know what they were doing in those Glittering Caves.
-Oh Legolas, you are so beautiful! You are everything I want to be but can't becuase the Aule, our idiot creator, should have let Eru do the work!
-Stop that, Gimli. Your beard tickles.

(I made that up, by the way. I haven't been able to bring myself to read any of the fanfics)
Speaking of Tolkein, here is the Tolkein Sarcasm Page and Phallic Symbolism in LOTR.
Also from pointlesswasteoftime.com are 8 Things You Didn't Want to Know about LOTR and Star Wars Episode IV as it should have been.
Funny, but offensive, I suppose, and rather... green.  Especially the last two links. If you're looking for some bathroom humor or just a good laugh browse around the site and click whatever strikes your fancy.  A quote from their Episode III spoilers:

ISSBA (Student Council) elections were today. The speeches were given during the assembly, and then we were given little paper ballots to vote on. Truly. So much for secret ballot. Unfortunately, this primitive and childish manner of voting (lacking even the most basic DNA verification!) completely quashed my nefarious plans to organize an election boycott. I would have camped out infront of the voting booths and hurled abuse at bureacracy and administrators. Shouldn't have told Mr. Walters my plan- I fear he turned informant on me.
Still it was most entertaining and I propose that our school has elections every other week. This would kill two birds with the same sharp, heavy stone; it would keep the student body satisfied and act as filler for useless assemblies, saving the admistrators the trouble of pretending to have news for us. Other favorable effects including giving everyone the chance to be a leader and write in their college essays that they were ISSBA President. This, of course, would effectively increase the college acceptances at ISM, binding more high school students to lives of endless drudgery and stress.
The important bit is that this would result in some corpulent, smug administrator getting a raise and going home to reassert his manliness, fucking his unfortunate wife with undeserved fervor.  And while she lay there and thought of England, enduring his rancid breath and turning into a complacent potato, their bratty children would run around screaming, watching the O.C. or some other insipid, meaningless program.
In case you can't tell, I really hate The Man today.  But just to reassure you vacuous conformists out there (note: this is a message the general huddled masses, not my readers) I did vote.  In fact, I voted for the people who I thought were the least competent and would provide the greatest entertainment at dull, pointless assemblies. Because student government is a farce.
Except for Jun, of course. I voted for him, becuase as Fahad rightly said, if it's going to be a farce, at least let you friends be the stars of the show.
