Out of the Blue

This little cold of mine really barely qualified as such, it was really more of a sore throat. The aftermath, however is a pretty severe cough, so even though I never got very stuffy, I seem to have some real post-nasal drip. I have a bottle of Robitussin floating around, but I'm trying to avoid giving in to that, since I have an annoying history of giving myself a mild case of Dextromethorphan poisoning when I use that stuff, which can be a little unpleasant.

Ugh, I can't believe others and I got sick again after a month. See http://www.aqfl.net/node/10172 for the details about it. Blue, did you give us your virus?

Prez has a Snuggle Trunk problem. Total problem. I thought you guys are his friends, why are you all not trying to help him?

You can Snuggle Trunk to much you know!

Prez has started the 'Snuggle Truck for Snuggle Truck 2' marathon. For each hour his computer plays Snuggle Truck is another potential for Snuggle Truck 2 to get made. Either that or start some sorta fire from the video card.... either way it's for a good cause!

Not only will I be the only guy to play Snuggle Truck for 100 straight hours, but I'll have news stories written about me as the guy who fried his video card playing Snuggle Truck. My fame is guaranteed! I would give interviews to PC Gamer, Rock Paper Shotgun, and even Kotaku, but I would prefer CNN or USA Today. It's all part of my plan - once the inevitable book deal happens I'll be set up for life!

"Hey look! Someone played for 500 hours."

"What the hell?!"

Reasons Why Los Angeles Is the Worst Place Ever.

I visited LA recently. Everyone seemed very concerned about positive feelings and emotional balance.

I thought about that for a while, and then set the orcs on them.


I was about to ask "why visit the shitty parts of LA?" and hit "post", but I realize that for people not used to California in general, and LA specifically, I have to stop for a moment and explain the relatively high background count of crazy motherf*ckers that wander around.

It's actually two long stories, but I'll abbreviate them. One, if you're going to be a crazy motherf*cker who drifts around and generally tries to feel the energy pulsations or whatever, the greater LA basin is fine for this, because it's usually 75 and sunny all year long. Not to mention you're a couple hours away from that bastion of early 20th century New Age/Bhuddist/really rich motherf*ckers culture: Ojai Valley.

Second, back when Reagan was our governor, he basically eviscerated our mental health system, and made it next to impossible to put people into treatment unless they agreed to be comitted, and then they could leave at any time. So basically every violently paranoid psycho in our state is free to wander around, and there's not a hell of a lot that can be done about it.

So yeah: Mild weather and a mental health system that does effectively f*ck-all results in a high background count of crazies.

on the other hand, hot chicks omg. and movie stars. i saw ryan gosling at the arclight, and recently ran into blake griffin. and a playboy playmate *ahem Lauren Elise ahem*.

Cosplay fights were cool.

Also, the idea that Los Angeles is any worse than, say, Amsterdam is extremely humorous. But it's a very funny article. I practically pissed myself at the Urban Taco Fabricator.

I laughed out loud at "Hippie Shit is EVERYWHERE." Almost as funny as the article though are the Facebook Zombie responses (if Blue ever starts using Facebook comments for story discussion on BN I may just eat a bullet...) by all the goofballs who 1) very obviously live in L.A. and 2) have absolutely ZERO sense of humor and are offended by everything, just like most left coast crazies.

Honey for the sore throat. Eucalyptus oil in hot water - the old towel over the head over the bowl steam bath trick - for the sinuses. Fix you right up.

Working for Lego was the best job I've ever had. Meh pay, decent benefits, but they are ALL about making customers happy.

Ok who exactly 'found' water on Mercury? Was there some guy just walking around and fell in and screamed 'HEY.. HEY!!!! I FOUND WATER HERE!!'?
