Has anyone yet found a helpful use for anger?

Jan. 17th, 2012 | 08:59 pm

To me it just gets in the way of rationality and increases the chances of regret. I believe I can control it, but I would strongly prefer it to go away. In fact, I'd rather not feel anything anymore than to feel most of the time like I'm not meant to be in this world. Now I'm depressed. That's progress! I feel better already. *silent scream*

America -- Bad Neighbor to the World

Okay, so top scientists seem to have decided that global warming has crossed the proverbial Rubicon. Dubya says he isn't convinced that global warming even exists. Dubya is the president of the United States, the single largest producer of the harmful greenhouse gases that cause global warming. Dubya also refused to sign on to the Kyoto protocol that would have made the US a less polluting nation.

So, America is single-handedly destroying the world. I've never been more ashamed of my country than I am now.

Just when you thought it was safe to f*ck a cheeseburger...

Perhaps to follow up on McDonald's "Double Cheeseburger? I'd hit it!" episode, my local Wendy's is... I swear to you... using the following slogan:

Do Fresh Hamburgers!

Sorry... about... the... delay...

Sorry to anyone looking to reach me right now -- I'm on a bit sporadically as my dial-up connection's pretty flaky right now. I'm only able to connect at 28.8 and that seems to be dropping every couple of minutes (if I let anything connect faster, I get dropped after mere seconds). Yeah. Rural America= t3h 5UX0rz. Anyway, I'm kind of an optimist when other people aren't around... so at least I can connect.

Anyway, I'll be online while I do some work to Luna, my powerhouse computer in the kitchen. We have a kimivalkyrie-like array of computers, each with its own purpose. I will list them as I attempt to bring my brain on-line.

Althena = multimedia, videogame console emulation, internet routing (dial-up to Wi-Fi... see how-to on _byte_me_.)
Chibi-Ami = 3D rendering, CG artwork, darkechibi's ecchi storage nexus!
Hotaru = writing my stories, warwalking, network sniping
Kyirsa = ebooks, to-do lists, mobile ecchi!
Luna = video editing, organization, hardware testing
Sasami = the interface with my whole network! -- network sniping, repairer of other computers!
Shinobu = mobile video editing, ebooks, internet

If I've forgotten any of my other computers, I apologize. The only other one is

Anonymous Acer = keeps Rei in his room at night. This is a Windows 95 system, which goes to show a Win95 computer isn't always useless, right?

Now, off to rip some eps of The Twilight Zone, conquer China, and get something to eat.

Fuck! Fuckfuckfuck!

I spent my lunch typing up a nifty preface for Yamanaka Saga, which I just uploaded. Then my browser spontaneously disappeared without warning or error message, annihilating all my work. I can't complain too much, since I'm running a Firefox Beta, but still... ...damn. :(

Miscellaneous Brouhaha

Vacation's over, had a couple days back at work, and nothing's improved there. In fact, the under-counter area is completely full of backlogged work from Burrito's pet bottleneck and the Destruct Manager's cutting hours again. I'm gonna snap and go Sangoku Musou on someone's ass.

Got my Federal tax return. It was $166.00. Got the bill for my county taxes. It was $166.04. Uncle Sam is a right bastard. Fortunately, I have all day to sleep off the depression. Unfortunately, I can't pay the bills. Clothes washer blew up, too. And that one was the spare my folks were kind enough to let me use. -__-*

If we had some money... I hate the number of thoughts beginning with those words.

As always, working on a lot of stuff. Finally finished writing Yamanaka Saga, and about halfway done rewriting "Software Pirate Captain Harlock" (the original was killed in a Pocket PC crash). The long awaited "first episode" of RumbleMon! is nearly complete, to fulfill your little monster hating needs. Look for updates at qbutterfly.

Got a little work done on Dungeon Seeds MINUS, but repairs to our website are foremost priority. Down side is that we can only get dial-up internet in this backwater, and even that hasn't been connecting for more than two minutes at a time lately.

Those who have tried unsuccessfully to reach me on messengers lately, I'm currently only using Google Talk. It's effective, easy on the processor, and light on the memory -- that's good enough for me. Hit me up there if ya need me.

I have too many responsibilities now. I just want to lay here and look up at the stars, but they're hard to see in the daytime. I think I can just barely make out where one is.

Your world really has its priorities screwed up. You know that?! And that set of programming people mistakenly call "free will" makes you do funny things. Something we learned: everybody slow down, and nobody will have to move so fast!

Romance of Three Kingdoms

Sep. 12th, 2005 | 05:20 am

Just started reading Luo Guanzhong's Romance of Three Kingdoms (with Pinyin names, because that's how I learned them). The version I have is complete, unabridged, and free to distribute. Let me know if you'd like a copy yourself! I want to learn more about Cao Cao, because the more I read about him, the more I become convinced that Oda Nobunaga was Cao Cao reborn.

Cool History Stuff
I don't know how historically accurate the book is, but Zhang Fei was apparently one hell of a man and his temperament and outlook were very similar to my own. My favourite bit so far is where he drags a corrupt government official into the street, ties him against a hitching post, and then proceeds to beat all kinds of hell out of him until the tenth stick he gets hold of (having broken nine on him before that) is too small to hit him with. Only the intercession of Liu Bei (the man the official was shafting) saved the corrupt bastard's life -- and that only barely (Guan Yu wanted to kill him too). It occurs to me that if the ever-polite Liu Bei had let Ziang Fei kill Dong Zhuo for being rude to the three brothers after they saved his life, the mess that occurs later at the capital would not, and countless lives would have been spared. The moral of the story is: For the greater good, mean people must die. Over 1,800 years later, we still have yet to learn this important lesson of history!

Erm... I'm It?

Okay, Kimikimichan. You asked for it!

Write 20 random facts about yourself then tag the same amount of people as minutes it takes you to write the facts. If you're tagged its your turn.

1) I have lots of white and silver hair. I don't colour it, and I'm not old.
2) I can't swim.
3) I can't speak to most people 1-on-1. Three person conversations are best for me.
4) The telephone, in my opinion, is the most spiteful and irritating device ever invented.
5) My Pocket PC, on which I do most of my work, is named "Hotaru" (after Tomoe Hotaru).
6) I'm ambidextrous.
7) My favourite weapon is the naginata.
8) Anyone who puts on my awesomely powerful glasses gets a headache.
9) I wrote the novel "Dungeon Seeds" to poke at goofy things in fantasy entertainment, but it was originally inspired by a dream (which was eventually toned down to Chapter 9).
10) I = nijikon
11) I've been told I run an awesome game of Paranoia
12) The pseudonym of my pseudonym, "K. Alex Rosen" breaks down as follows. K's just short for my taken name. "Alex" is after the main chara in A Clockwork Orange, with whom I heavily identify. "Rosen" is after the Rosen Corporation and Rachel Rosen in Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?, a surreal book that was savagely violated to make the movie "Blade Runner".
13) My actual pseudonym (an oxymoron!) is "Kitsune Vulpes Renard", which no one I've ever mentioned it to noticed
is just "fox" in three languages.
14) I like to use slang from SF novels and other, stranger origins. ("This bleeming kreeb isn't worth a pint of sheeting whaledreck, so I had to kitbash the greg out of it!")
15) I hope to one day raid the Disney park in Tokyo and kidnap Alice.
16) I haven't watched television in almost ten years.
17) I inherited a massive Alice's Adventures in Wonderland / Through The Looking-Glass fascination from axialis.
18) If I had a big button to blow up the world, you wouldn't be reading this.
19) My favourite colour is blue.
20) I use European spellings whenever I think to because American English is just a bastardization of another language.

Taking away time for correcting errors due to using handwriting recognition, I only gotta tag five people. No one can "force" you to play along, but I smack asilana, azazel42, curiouskitty35, gunnertjake, and babydollcivic, some of which almost certainly won't play along. :P

Australia Says: Stop Stealing Our Fucking Signs!

The Austrian town of Fucking got so fed up of English-speaking tourists stealing signs that they had to resort to theft proof signs.

Dubya: Hey, buddy. Are you really idle or are you dead?

Kitsune: I was idle. Why do you care?

Dubya: Because I sent some people to kill you.

Kitsune: ...

Kitsune: Well, I must say that's not very civil of you.

Dubya: Before you die, I thought you should know that I'm planning to have Purple Saurus Rex Kool-Aid powder air dropped into the big bowl of water that used to be New Orleans. I reckoned you'd think it was funny.

Kitsune: Why not air drop something useful, like food?

Dubya: Pshaw. They're complaining that they don't have anything to drink. This will turn the entire city into one big glass of Kool-Aid!

Kitsune: ...and for those who don't like Purple Saurus Rex?

Dubya: Oh, when they see black people they'll drop grape flavor.

Dubya's warning level is now at 40%.

Dubya: What did you do that for, bub?
