baleen: a post in the true Live Journal spirit

i just realized that when i drink coke from a can (i don't think i do this when it's not coke, or not a can)...i almost-completly close my jaw, so that 90% of the soda flows through/around my teeth, instead of just into my mouth...i don't know why i do this (i would guess it reduces the amount of "bubbles" i'm getting, cuz i'm used to root beer which tends to be flatter normally)....nor do i know why it's only with the coke/can combination (either cuz coke is extra-bubbly, or maybe i've just never noticed it any other time)...

but yes. strange. very strange.

we now return you to your regularly scheduled lives

Racers, start your engines!

F1 Boston was quite cool....not quite as hot as i had hoped, but i'm definately glad i went (a big shout to paul, who i'm sure will never read this, whom i went was cool!...and a "sorry meyng" shoutout to denton, who i had thought i was going to go with until like the last minute...we'll figure out something else to do at some point....)

but yea...coolness...the cars were uhhh hard as hell to control (well, if you wanted to go around the corners with anything resembling "control" or "speed", at least, and if you didn't want to hit the walls... :-P ) didn't help that EVERY PERSON we raced against had done it several times before :-P

but we had yea, it was good.

oh and yea...they are seriously (as paul put it quite eloquently).. "bumper cars with balls"....there was this bumper-guard thing all the way around them, so your wheels couldn't even hit anything....the worst we saw happen (other than the occasional-and-expected spin-out) was someone somehow getting UNDER the bumper/wall-things made of tires....they just stopped the other cars, had him get out...then just pulled his car out from under the tires, started it back up, and he was on his way (and no, that wasn't during our race...we had to wait for over 2 hours before we got to race :-p)

but yes...quite hot...and quite not-scary, if you ask me.... ;)

i'd love to go back (tho not THAT often, especially at 20-something bucks a shot)...but yea, coolness :)


You Are Smart

ok so i don't even HAVE the game...and i'm hooked on the music from it...for two days i've had "kata-mari dama-sheee" stuck in my head (which is how it's pronounced in track 3 of the soundtrack, "Katamari on the Rock [Intro Movie]"...but seriously, this music owns me so much...i can't wait to get this game...

i'm talking, of course, of Katamari Damacy (pronounced as above, but without the drawn-out syllables)...for more information, try googling's everywhere :-p

how do ya like THEM apples?

Marino Lookout Farm is quite a hot place...

this past saturday was my second time there (1st was last year)....they have more fruit (and indeed, more KINDS of fruit) than i thought a place has any right to contain...$4 gets you a train pass-thingy (stamp on your hand) need the "train" to get around the place, cuz of how HUGE it is....we seriously were almost LOST at times, trying to figure out how to get out of the trees and back to the "train" route...(i use the quotes cuz it LOOKS kinda like a trolly-like train, but the "engine" up front just has like a diesel engine or something (ie it's a truck), and it all runs on wheels, not a track...but it's still hot...

anyway, yea...i came away with like 11 pounds of fruit (at $1.50/lb.) (including like 3 or 4 types of apples, some asian pears, and some plums...) some (AWESOME) apple cider...we had "gelato" (italian ice cream, apparently) was very good...and i got some grapes (which i've yet to try)...

last night kim and kristin made a couple apple pies (which came out GREAT, using their mom's recipe ;) )....we also made some caramel apples, which i've yet to try :-P

so yea....HOT! :)

hottest invasion of privacy EVER

some random guy found a random memory card in a has like 227 pics, spanning a year (based on timestamps) he's posting 1 a day, and making up stories/names to go with them all....


[Update, 9/21/04 - 9:30am
He appears to have taken down most of the site. He says he hasn't heard from the owner of the card, but has taken it down "pre-emtively"...i'm guessing perhaps some of the other people in the pictures e-mailed him, or just a general backlash from people who got pissed at it, or something (it got a lot of traffic after being highlighted in /. )

If you missed missed it!]

freakin' awesome...

ok so saturday morning i saw I, Robot...and i must say, it was far cooler than i thought it would be! will smith did a good job filling the role he was portraying, and as someone who's read far more Asimov books than is probably healthy, i thought they did a good job conveying the kind of issues he always had in his stories...

Therefore, I, Robot hereby gets: THE JEREMYVS STAMP OF APPROVAL!!! *smacks movie w/large stamp*

a path to where

a meandering path, a wandering brook
threading through everything
through everywhere
leading to where?
a meandering path, stretching out in front
time to take it

What Irrational Number are you?

What Irrational Number Are You?
You are e

Of all the irrational numbers, you are the most intense. By nature you are powerful, although sometimes you can spiral out of control. You are good with money; the interest seems to just compound whenever you are near. When someone uses the word "exponential" they are probably talking about you.

In some ways you and φ are a nearly perfect match. Not to mention how attractive φ is. But then, there is the remarkable π...

Your lucky number is approximately 2.71828183

Weapons of Math Instruction

At New York's Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule, and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, an official said he believes the man is a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a fearsome cult,", he said. "They desire average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute value. They use secret code names like "x" and "y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns", but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. "As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, there are 3 sides to every triangle," Ashcroft declared.

When asked to comment on the arrest, he said "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes.

"I am gratified that our government has given us a sine that it is intent on protracting us from these math-dogs who are willing to disintegrate us with calculus disregard. Murky statisticians love to inflict plane on every sphere of influence," he said, adding: "Under the circumferences, we must differentiate their root, make our point, and draw the line."
He warned, "These weapons of math instruction have the potential to decimal everything in their math on a scalene never before seen unless we become exponents of a Higher Power and begin to factor-in random facts of vertex."

He said, "As our Great Leader would say, read my ellipse. Here is one principle he is uncertain of: though they continue to multiply, their days are numbered as the hypotenuse tightens around their necks...."

new addiction...

If I were a NetHack monster, I would be a floating eye. I see and sense absolutely everything that happens around me. I just don't do very much about it.
