KIWI


Wednesday, November 29, 2006

totally figured out the secret to all-nighters:
Scientists have not been able to explain a 1998 study showing a bright light shone on the backs of human knees can reset the brain's sleep-wake clock.

Thought it was funny that I got to this one when I was wondering "is it ironic that I'm reading this instead of sleeping?"
Experts say one of the most alluring sleep distractions is the 24-hour accessibility of the internet.

Friggin Aye

So i wake up this morning at 6:30 am to my 12 yr old brother screaming like somebody is trying to kill him.

Evidently he tried to pick up my cat Patches and found her all dead and rigamortisy.

Poor kid is scarred for life...
Poor cat is in a box in the backyard under a pile of firewood.... (Does that mean we're gonna burn it later?)
Poor me is cutting class now because I didnt get to finish my paper cause I was calming Danny down for 2 hours before class.

What a morning....

Two black men who say they were insulted by actor-comedian Michael Richards during his racist rant at a comedy club want a personal apology and perhaps some money, their lawyer said Friday.

Jerkfish: Fuck those fucking leeches. All of a sudden Richards doesn't look like the asshole of the situation anymore.

SomethingAwful reports on SecondLife (with pictures)

I know what SL is, but SomethingAwful is hilarious. This is worth reading

The most recent part refers to this. Where some griefers made giant Sonic rings that when touched, multiply and spread malicious code.

Linden Labs has declared that Something Awful forum members are outlaws by default. Right now, they're attempting to have a few goons prosecuted under federal law, claiming that setting off virtual nukes or grey-goo attacks qualify as VWMD's. That's right. "Virtual Weapons of Mass Destruction", which have apparently left Iraq and gone digital!

"Hint: Dumbledore dies at the end of Second Life!"

"The problem here is that people are actually buying into Linden Lab's bullshit world. In this case, "buying in" is not a figure of speech: Nissan just bought the exclusive rights to an online island for $1,250 and a $195 monthly fee. The New York Times wrote an article about Second Life, but even those crazy liberal conspirators ain't got shit on Reuters, who actually created a permanent news bureau in-world with a full time reporter who only reports on virtual drama."

"
As might be expected, the biggest trade in Second Life (other than perhaps land) is sex trafficking. With a few lines of code and a simple animation, your androgynous avatar can become the proud and industrious owner of functional genitalia! Chip in a few extra bucks and you can train your avatar to perform any number of exotic sex acts. This I find useful because it marks an end to my guilt-ridden masturbation sessions to Emma Watson upskirt screen grabs from the second Harry Potter movie. After all, why go through all that when I can easily recreate her appearance in an avatar, take it to a virtual bondage club, and have steaming steel rods rammed through my nubile nexus for as long as I desire."


Also, this link from halfway through the article has some hilarious greifing.

Is a burrito a sandwich? Judge says no

But Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke cited Webster's Dictionary as well as testimony from a chef and a former high-ranking federal agriculture official in ruling that Qdoba's burritos and other offerings are not sandwiches.

...

Qdoba, owned by San Diego-based Jack in the Box Inc., called food experts to testify on its behalf.

Among them was Cambridge chef Chris Schlesinger, who said in an affidavit: "I know of no chef or culinary historian (wtf??) who would call a burrito a sandwich. Indeed, the notion would be absurd to any credible chef or culinary historian."

Whenever everyone comes back to ny we need to get together again, its been awhile.

Failing an open house with the automatic entertainment of alcohol, we'll have multiple tv's, wiis, guitar hero (that would be alot of fun), and of course movies, to which I contribute my suggestion:

"And who can't appreciate the comedic genius of the 1966 Batman TV series movie? I mean, exploding prosthetic sharks, heroic suicidal dolphins, Adam West's Batman running down a pier with a giant Bob-omb over his head ...you seriously can't make this shit up folks. If you can, I recommend picking up this gem in the bargain DVD bin at Wal-Mart. It'll be the best $4.99 you ever spent."
In 1994 a group of doctors at Chenglepattu Medical College Hospital, India lost a pair of 7 inch long scissors while removing a tumor from a 33 year old woman. The doctors must frequently lose medical instruments, because they didn't seem to notice the missing tools. When Ms. Sigamani began complaining about abdominal pain after the procedure, the doctors figured that it was probably just run of the mill post-surgery blues and suggested she take pain killers.

Twelve years later the independent investigators believe they may have solved the mystery of the phantom pain and the lost scissors when they suggested that Sigamani have an X-ray.

The hospital denies having any medical records pertaining to the now-12 year old surgery, and has not asked for the scissors back.

Now here's a different kind of game...

One thing you can't deny about the Bible: It's got an awfully thrilling plot. The Book of Revelation -- the story of the end days of Earth -- is treble-charged with Jerry Bruckheimer-style combat. Armies of darkness trample the earth; the ultimate villain ascends to power; then a final conflict rends the fabric of space and time. You could be forgiven for wondering: Why hasn't someone made a game out of this?

Next week, your prayers will be answered -- with the arrival of Left Behind: Eternal Forces, a game based on the Left Behind books. For those who just teleported in from the moon, the massively popular Left Behind series tells the story of the Rapture, in which millions of the world's Christians are whisked off to heaven by Jesus. Those left behind form into two armies: The Tribulation Force of the newly repentant born-again, and sepulchral, one-world-government forces led by Nicolae Carpathian, a man who is charismatic, effeminate, European and thus quite obviously Satan.

Full story

Edit: (since i'm sure rob won't read the full story)
"This all takes place in a sprawling version of Manhattan that is rendered with breathtaking accuracy -- down to the precise location of Duane Reade drugstores -- and superb camera work."

And yes I know, I wish I could play the antichrist too. Maybe there's a multiplayer.
