Livejournal is pretty hilarious.

Oh noes it is the attack of the bisexuals!

p.s. entirely unrelated, Justin Long, aka Mac, is dating Drew Barrymore. *giggle*

I know, I know, enough with these cats already. But! [ profile] metaquotes love! And! Self depracating humor!
Check out this lovely comic.
To quote from my favorite bit:
Bob: Hi, I'm Dr. Bob Buxtehude, CFO of I Technologies, Inc. You may know me as TV's 'Serious cat.' I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit more about the exciting work we do here at I. As we like to say, 'I' are 'Serious Cat', but there's so much more to our operation.

[some dialogue about ninja kittens]

Bob: I'm just going to have a  chat with Esther, our chief scientist. So Esther, tell us what you do.

Esther: Well Bob, it's difficult to explain my research in layman's terms, but essentially what I'm working on at the moment is all about the science of containment. As a subject relevant to recent breakthroughs in fusion technology, I feel that the device I  have to show you today could make a real difference in solving the oft-predicted energy crisis. In short... I has a bucket. It contains photonic technology.
Also, browsing around... more awesome from [ profile] gnimmel : The internet is for meta-analysis.

So, sinclair_furie, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 8% unique
(blame, for example, your interest in whimsical emails)
and 8% herdlike
(partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy science fiction).
When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are wary of trusting strangers.

Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is intellectual.

Your overall weirdness is: 37

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 76% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

In response to the LJ Strikethrough debacle:

Guys, I'm in 50 facebook groups.
That is all.

[ profile] esmeraldus_neo is runninga  meme propogation experiment. Yall should participate. :)

Brief instructions:
  1. Write a post linking to this one in which you explain the experiment. (All blogs count, be they TypePad, Blogger, MySpace, Facebook, etc.)
  2. Ask your readers to do the same. Beg them. Relate sob stories about poor graduate students in desperate circumstances. Imply I'm one of them. (Do whatever you have to. If that fails, try whatever it takes.)
  3. Ping Techorati.

So, my new scientific calculator is the most gratuitous thing ever. I love it already.
Also, hurray for not failing Chem because I can't use TI scientific calculators!

Edit: In other geek news, I just had a math lecture about Green's Theorem for flux. Two things: (1) Curl and divergence make so much more sense when you think of them as del cross F and del dot F, and (2) Maxwell's equations MAKE INFINITELY MORE SENSE in terms of curl and divergence. Seriously. It's kind of blowing my mind how my physics and math class have suddenly decided to converge and thus result in Maxwell's equations ACTUALLY MAKING SENSE.
Erm, for those of you who understood like, none of that, wait till you take Multivariable Calc and E&M, and then you will see what I mean and it will BLOW YOU AWAY.
Edit, again: Dude, my brother has a Facebook. <3

Facebook is getting ridiculously stalkerish these days, so all of you that don't already have cool residences like SPACEWHARF should put in the Residence section that you live in [ profile] sahin 's pants.
Seriously. Residence: "timur's pants". Four people currently reside in timur's pants.

OMG Xanga Footprints... like IP logging but SO MUCH WORSE. Seriously. Apparently this person and also this person found me from the Xanga search for hentai. THERE IS NO PRIVACY LEFT IN THE WORLD
[evil laughter]
Also, Xanga supports tags now, but my lj is tagged, so if you want tags just go here. But still. You have to love Xanga for being kind of scary.

By the way, now that I have my camera, I could totally play Nadia's tell me what to photograph game, which she completed here.
So! Tell me what you want to see photographed and I shall obey!

Oh, it has just come to my attention that I have not told everybody in the world to get a account. I hope I can compensate for this by telling you all now.
But! Get one if you don't have one already! And add me, I'm impied.
For those of you who don't know, is this music site that basically collects data about your music listening habits and then recommends stuff. Also, you can do cool things like join groups etc, but me, I'm a sucker for obsessively collecting statistics.
They call it a "social music revolution," so if that sounds more exciting to you than "excessive data on your music listening habits", please go join. Really. It runs in the background and everything.

Right. A work in Progress...
I was talking to Crystal and we were overcome with the idea of making a "Must Read Children's Books" list. Also including some Young Adult fiction. For when you want to have well-read children. :D
So, in no particular order:

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman
Rose and the Beast and other stuff by Francesca Lea Block
His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman
The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix

Feel free to suggest things! Please do, actually, as this would be a fun list to make.

OK, so I am back from Australia. And I suppose I have many things to say, most importantly that it was cold  there and now I'm sick.
I'll give a real entry later, about music, movies, books (OMG), accents and immigrants. And Australia, I suppose, and my fear of foraging for food. And I still have to finish my "Doctor Who's Gay Agenda" entry.
Go read this article on Sex and Scandal at Duke in Rolling Stone, and then this response by a Duke blogger. Depressing. And rather interesting.
Also, I'm apparently hopeless on politics. I answered "Liberal" and "other" to Niyatee's question... and then explained in the comments, ruminated about SwedenBangladesh and India before Keri and I decided that absurdism does not go well with politics.
So next time you ask me about my politcal views, I'll scoff and declare myself an absurdist.

Right, after I posted this entry on tea and other things, [ profile] antiscian came up with the brilliant idea of a TEA VIRAL MEME!!!
Which means that all you tea drinkers out there should document, preferably with words and photos, (but haiku, song lyrics and sonnets are also acceptable) your tea-drinking habits.
If you really don't drink tea, but love coffee, document that instead. Coffee is very photogenic.
I suppose we may as well extend this to "How do you take your caffeine?" for those (ahhh!) soft drink fans out there feeling left out.
But! Tea! If you drink it, you must take part! :)
sinclair_furie: (good omens)
Right, because I am overdue for an entry, like a woman ten months pregnant. Eventually, I will post that entry that I'm writing about Doctor Who's Gay Agenda, because it totally has a very obvious one, but until then...

I went shopping yesterday (well, really two days ago) for Fahad, which was lots of fun. Seriously. He looks good in EVERYTHING. So now not only is my brother smart, and you know, cool, but he's also prettier than I am. He said some witty things, but I've forgotten them all.
Zara has the best clothes.

Now, a subject that is very dear to me. Tea.
My relationship with tea is a bit of an odd one. You wouldn't suspect it, but it's actually relatively unorthodox. Kind of like the man who tells his friends and colleagues how much he loves his wife every day, and then goes home and proves it to her by indulging in, oh I don't know, BDSM or watersports.
Which is perhaps an image you didn't need, but that's how I am with tea. You'll hear me talk about it rather often, especially if you travel with me or make the mistake of taking me to Starbucks. I like my tea, and I like it in a certain way.
More nattering on, and pictures )
Oh! Books! I just finished Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman. Tess got it for me, and wow, it is such an amazing, beautiful book. It basically chronicles a set of fictional dreams Einstein had while coming up with general relativity. It sounds like some popular science novel, but actually it's a series of heartbreaking vignettes about different worlds, where time funtions differently.
The world will end on 26 September 1907. Everyone knows it. )

For in this world, people have no memories )

Oh! And Alan Lightman teaches at MIT!
Also, you may have noticed that I've temporary adopted Forbes' (and the IB exam writers') tendency to bold key words and phrases. Everybody needs a change.

Ok, let's add another entry to "Reasons why Neil Gaiman Rocks"
So, apparently somebody has been impersonating Neil on myspace. I know. The travesty! The horror! Why would you impersonate Neil??? I guess somebody told him about it, and he just posted saying he was sorry for being a wet blanket, but it wasn't him. And then he said:
"And a note to any future would-be me-impersonators: Please work on your spelling. hygene?deticated? assumtion? And, for obvious reasons, I can't ever imagine describing myself as a red-blooded American..."

[ profile] amanuensis1 has an insight about Harry Potter fandom. As she puts it:
"Hello, and welcome to the HP fandom, where one can request:

Sex in classrooms
Sex with dead people
Traveling through time to get sex
Parseltongue sex

But still add "NO KINK" at the end of the list. ^_^"
Much like the "My fandom warns for het" icon she has. :D

I'm a bit confused about why everybody is so preoccupied about the fact that prayer does not help heart problems. I mean, even if it did, I don't think beginning to pray because of heart problems would be sincere enough to have an effect.
Still. Never let it be said that I haven't jumped on the bandwagon and linked to the article.
Also, I have a google page, but I have yet do do anything with it. Google Pages isn't actually that good, but if you want 100 MB free hosting, go get one.

Lee Adama gets it on with the noodles. Seriously.
sinclair_furie: (sirus/james)
Well, I'd like to regale you with funny quotes about how very gay Smallville (specifically, Clark/Lex) is, but too lazy. But these icons from [ profile] alax are too good to pass up on. And more of [ profile] shaggirl 's userpics here.
