I’m Sick

Seriously, that is all.

EDIT: Actually, no it isn’t.

Today (not in GMT, in PST) happens to be a Palindrome Date, when written as 11/02/2011. This only happens once a year (gosh, that’s so hard to believe!), and only in some years, specifically years in the first and second century of each millennium. Of course, this could technically happen twice a year, and it will, with 11/02/2011 (November 2nd, instead of February 11th), but that’s in another time-format, so…

Also, today is the day of the British Columbia Liberal Party’s vote to select their new leader. Except WHO CARES THEY’RE GONNA DO NOTHING ANYWAYS

Finally, to-month is exactly one year after the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, hosted in Vancouver, Canada (not Washington)! Woohoo.

…I’m sick.


Internet Meme 101: Pedo Bear

 

ITS PEDO BEAR!!!

 

ITS PEDO BEAR!!! Pedo Bear originated from 2chan, Japan’s popular imageboard (inspired 4chan to be made). It was originally supposed to be “Safety Bear”, but because it got onto 4chan in 2004, people were like “Let’s turn safety into pedophile!!!” That’s just how demented the internet is these days :D

Pedo Bear is just, awesome. He started off with a catchphrase”is dat sum loli”, but because makes no sense, it faded away.

 

Pedophiles are proud supporters of the Vancouver 2010 olympics

 

I have no idea why Pedo Bear is so popular, but I guess people just like associating cute furry stuff with demented, creepy stuff, like this

You see? You have a cute little chipmunk, and then you get people turning it into the antagonist of Austin Power. That just shows how strange the mind of people work nowadays. (Should I review Dramatic Chipmunk next? Or something else? Comment and tell me plz)

Like all other perverted memes, it has a ton of Photoshopped images, like this montage

Hooray, I have wasted your time. Mission accomplished har har har. Obviously this one isn’t as awesome as “All your Base are Belong to Us” so why not add some more Engrish? (cuz you all love it so much =D)

 

Er...I'd like to keep my privates safe, thank you very much

 

 

...Pedo...Bear...Man...Scary

 

 

Er...at least it's eco-friendly?

 

 

BUT WAIT! WE'LL THROW IN A FREE DOUBLE OFFER OF HIV, FOR YOUR WIFE AND YOU!

 

You see? You see how Engrish makes everyone happy? So yeah, I’ll come up with a more interesting meme next, so have fun browsing O-New. Bye.


SuicideSaturday 2

Alright, it’s Saturday again (or was, when I started writing this post). I survived, happily…. Unfortunately, there was an earthquake in Chile; thankfully, everyone I know is safe… however, the tsunami hit us here in Vancouver; it was like, HUGE! I mean, it ALMOST KILLED AN ANT, IT WAS LIKE 10 CENTIMETRES TALL (but I do give my sincere condolences to whoever was affected)!

…I’m working on the pages, so you’ll see that one will be down while the other two will remain up. Not that anybody notices…

Also, yes, I did organize my room. Here are some pictures:

Messy Desk

Yes, I work here.

And after the organization:

Cleaner Desk

My desk, now. Or rather, my desk, yesterday. :/

But wait, how does that work? Where did all the books and stuff go?

I hid them in my closet. :/ it works.

RE: Mabinogi, I’ve decided to stay on Alexina now, seeing that something like 10+ people are there (that I know)…! :D Tell me your char. names!

Also, CANADA WON GOLD VS THE US! WOOHOOO WE ARE THE STRONGEST! We have like, more than (9) gold now! :D

And I also found something interesting; the amount of people visiting this blog almost doubled yesterday (when I merely posted a filler post) compared to the day before that (where I actually posted STUFF)…. erm, what type of a trend is that…?!

Anyways, links:

http://en.akinator.com/

^ 20 Questions. It’s hard to beat him T_T Almost everything works, since its algorithm probably runs on user inputs.

^ Interesting… game? I’m not sure if it’s a game or just a slideshow.
^ More a post to think about than to actually read.
^ Another presentation that I didn’t watch. The gameification of everything :P
^ Storylines. They’re important. -_-
^ A sleep schedule to have the same amount of “sleep” while having less sleep.
^ Just read the post title…
^ Again, read the post title… seems to entirely contradict the first article :P
^ Hmm… Japan seems to have a 10 cm tsunami too! Though there might be larger waves; I’m not very updated on this…
^ FREE MUKMUK!!!
^ Looks like a new blog for me to subscribe to…!
^ This is just sad. 911 failed to respond in time, a guy died. >:O
^ Curling is the only intelligent sport in the Olympics. Sorry.
^ Unfortunately, my dad never does this; just yells a lot. And I just sleep a lot. :/
^ When you make the gap between an old concept and a new concept, it’s an information gap. If it’s small, you can easily cross it; if it’s large, you won’t want to cross it. Read on.
And yep, that’s all for today! I’m working on the links page now; hopefully it’ll be active by Wednesday.

Wasting Time

…So, what was that filler post all about?
Basically, yesterday, my family and I decided to go and see the Olympic… stuff happening. This by itself is obviously /awesome/; however, the problem was, that we would have to stay at the library (which was where I was) for another 5 hours to conserve a bus ticket. At the time, this idea seemed pretty good; after all, I could work for a longer period of time at the library, right?
…This was proven completely wrong.
The thing is, I’ve never really stayed working at someplace for… 9 hours at a time (with a one hour break for lunch). So I didn’t really know that I had a limit; all other times when I’ve been working, I could focus until I completed my objective.
…Staying up till 1:00 for 13 consecutive days did not help this (keep in mind, my normal sleeping time is 10:00).
So, at the end, I half-read a book, half-slept for 5 hours while doing nothing at all (I also didn’t bring lined paper to write on). This was entirely to blame on myself for being unprepared. However, after that, we went to see the Olympic stuff. It was fun, obviously, but I felt that we had wasted a bit too long just seeing the laz0rz (yes, we were looking at laz0rz). By the time we got home, it was already 10:00. I had not eaten dinner. I had another 2 pages of questions to complete. And I had to search up the definitions of 50 words.
:/
Anyways, that’s out of the way. For the twitter client thing, I’ve noticed that Chromed Bird has an API thing; apparently, this is the amount of times it refreshes per second. If it goes over 150, it apparently crashes and restarts; this has happened to me, just several hours before. Right now, I’ve adjusted mine to 66. Hopefully, this will result in no more crashes while updating at a reasonable pace.
And yeah, it’s pretty late now. Anyways, here are the links for today and yesterday;
^ Hot dogs cause choking. Yeah, this was discussed somewhat yesterday on twitter, it was also on the news… so I’m sorta late on this. Whatever. They’re probably gonna ban water soon enough for presenting a “drowning hazard” to “young children who cannot swim”. Oh yeah, young children actually /can/ swim, it’s their inner instinct.
^ Soda boxes made into the shape of the Olympic Rings. Pretty epic, if you ask me.
^ People who apply for programming can’t program. Wow, big surprise there -_- There are a series of links on the page too; I won’t bother linking all of them, but definitely do read them.
^ Michael’s in the process of creating a new tutorial! He’s even on adobe’s website now… check it out when you have the time…!

…and off to sleep. :D


Random Bison

Alright, so after hours of sleeping, I’ve figured out an acronym that goes along with R.A.N.D.O.M.: B.I.S.O.N. (Wow, something like :.:.:.: can be used for ASCII art…!).

What does this stand for now? [sarcasm] Because my acronym-making skillz are so amazing [/sarcasm], they actually stand for groups of words… -_-

Blog Organization.

Internet Stuff.

School Work.

Organization of Other Stuff.

Not-In-School Work.

So then, I’m guessing I should review myself ATM:

B: M. I: N. S: O. O: M. N: M.

Whoo, another thing that sorta looks like a word…! Basically, what that means is that I am epically failing at everything besides generally browsing the web, because I got that sorted out two days ago.

Unfortunately, I didn’t clean my room (I’ll post a picture of it uncleaned and cleaned tomorrow); however, I did go to the Richmond O-Zone. It really didn’t have many things to do; however, there were a ton of people, so I guess I just had fun because of the atmosphere…! Also, they made us dump out our drinks before we entered; that was pretty smart, as it both stopped possible bombings and made us buy drinks inside the venue, leading to more $$$…

Today was also the second most awesome hockey match of the Olympics; Canada vs. USA. It was exciting, up till when USA scored its fifth goal. Then it was sorta pointless… looking forward to their second match, if it does happen! That’s when we’ll get our revenge… >:D Also, during the TV broadcasting, I spotted several people holding up several.. interesting acronyms, such as TSN (The Superior Nation) or CTV (Canadian Team’s Victory). Funny thing is, that both of those are news channels… and the people holding up the signs were on completely opposite sides of the stadium…! The other unfortunate thing about this match (besides Canada losing) was that the internet completely stopped in Vancouver, especially at the end of each period; doing anything was completely impossible. Too many people were using the internet to tell people… stuff (me included). This made me double-tweet a lot… -_-

In other news, I am searching for a new twitter client…! I tried Brizzly, but that didn’t work; not only did it not provide an accurate graphical display of when there were new tweets, but it didn’t have multiple reply functions (forcing me to copypaste if I needed to reply to multiple people) and worked exactly the same as web; except less efficient. I’m trying Chromed Bird, since I recently moved to Chrome as my default browser; it’s working out pretty well as of right now. However, the perfect twitter client (if it was possible) for me would be a web-based client, the same as Twitter’s actual site, except with automatic updates (instead of pressing the “5 new tweets” button), and not skipping over tweets (which means, basically it doesn’t show you some tweets for some reason). Both these problems seem to be resolved with Chromed Bird, however, a final problem that isn’t resolved (that works in web) is hovering over “in reply to _____” messages and being able to see what the person replied to; Chromed Bird requires you to click on it to find out. However, one of the major benefits of Chromed Bird is that it’s a web-based add-on; in other words, it’s not a separate application that I have to open up every time;  nor a separate webpage that I have to open every time. It also allows me to tweet and immediately stop tweeting in case my superiors come by; that’s one trait that I doubt many other good clients have.

Finally, the links for today…

^ Another speech that I didn’t listen to yet; too long for me, at this point, so I’ll listen to it on Tuesday. But, as the link says, it’s a “mind-blowing speech”. That probably means it’s good. :P
^ Another wordpress post; there’s some interesting spikes in the RSS cloud… I’m guessing it’s just poisson distribution acting in again, but it could be because of a hoard of people suddenly surfing blogs or something…
^ If only I had that much time on my hands… giant superstructure (like the “Ark” in 2012) made out of… lego. O_o
^ Just found this site out through that link… I’m not going to post any more of these, but… well, they’re strange facts… that give me USELESS KNOWLEDGE…! :D
^ Send yourself an email… to the future…! Yay for time capsules! Except, now they’re in internet form… I sent myself an email, destined to be opened five years later… if I still keep my email address -_-
^ Hmm… seems like a super-google-I’m-feeling-lucky mixed with yahoo answers and ask.com… and it has to be in a question form! :D?
Alright, thanks for reading. Erm, I’ll add “about” pages and the such on Tuesday…! :D
