Advanced Physics is hard   September 23, 2003

[If you can read this secret message, you're cool.]

After redesigning this site in XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2.1 without any tables, and testing it to work in Internet Explorer, Mozilla, and even Opera, I find that I can still improve it for Konqueror Browsers on BeOS, and what about cell phones and handheld devices? After reading up on the upcoming XHTML 2.0 code (which I will share with you if there's demand for it on the forums), I still have a ton of work to do.

This cartoon collection called Flame Warriors is an accurate representation of the various personalities that engage or even don't engage in online forum discussions.
Ever since the popular ABS Forums has reopened a few weeks ago, I have found these cartoons to be true. Be sure to read the descriptions below each image. Some of my favourites are:

Also, be sure to check out Bradster's #albinoblacksheep comics (60 so far) which can be found in the ABS chat room.

I'm tired of America getting accused of being an empire, without having any of the perks that should go along with it. All of the blame and none of the fun.

It's not just that moral equivalency is the last refuge of the morally bankrupt. Superficial similarity is a basic cop-out for the intellectually lazy. In any area, not just world affairs. if you can claim that Beethoven and B. B. King have a lot in common, that absolves you from having to actually learn anything in depth about either Beethoven's composition technique or practical blues improvisation.

"Terrorism requires you to suspend normal morality for the sake of a supposedly higher cause. And when you do that, you have no morality and no cause and eventually no freedom, because the people who are willing to obliterate all human rights are not going to establish democracy when they win."

"When someone tells you he's going to kill you, you pay attention, you take him seriously, you believe him. You wake up earlier the next morning and you kill him. If you survive, you win. If you don't survive, you lose. If you lose, you're nothing."

Better if we all project less and (self) reflect more, both individually and nationally.

Clever engineers figured out what line of characters to print to make a noise at a given pitch, and how many times to print that line repeatedly to sustain that pitch for a given duration. In other words, the printer could play musical notes.

Pandoras Mime: a lot of people hate america for a lot more than current events-related issues. i know i personally am not very fond of living here just because people's mentalities here don't jive with mine--priorities are skewed and many (if not most) are close-minded beyond belief...

Dr. Norton's inventions:

As requested here are my nominations for the best new inventions for the home:

1. The Mexican Shoe Horn.
The so called Mexican shoe horn is more like a snake on wheels than an actual shoe horn, but the snakes assure me it's not deadly. How it helps you with your shoes is a bit of a mystery, but where this handy gadget wins is with its useful rattle type tail for warning you when theres a mouse in your shoe, or something. 6/10

2. The Arse Bandit.
Not as its name sugests, a machine for stealing arses, but it's a very handy garden spade. With a sort of bent handle and deep shaft, it's ideal for all uphill gardeners. 8/10

3. Inflatable Alan. The winner by a long way in my opinion. Imagine you are alone. Maybe its night time. Maybe its dark... Was that an owl? Whose at the door? *Scared*... Well be scared no more with Inflatable Alan, a full size inflatable dog that can ward off all sorts of things from your door with its realistinc dog type sayings. (Includes, "Thats my stick", "I need a bitch", and other faves). Fully guarenteed to confuse any witches trying to steal your milk in the night.

I stopped by the Indymedia IRC channel one time and was slammed for using the term "guys". I said, "Hey guys, what's up?". Apparently the term "guys" is my expression that I have a "huge pen|s" and I should not push it in the face of the women in the channel. Afterwards I was given a quick lesson in how to properly define the sexes which are no longer limited to men and women. People found my use of the term "women" offensive as well. I can't wait to go back to college full time to see this stuff in person.

Here's a game that you'll be addicted to if you love challenges and hate making priorities in life:

... For those who have trouble accepting that there can be any type of absolute morality, consider this:
Let's say I'm a cannibal. I was raised a cannibal, all my friends and family are cannibals and so were all my ancestors. So how can anyone judge me? It's not my fault I was born a cannibal. But hey, don't get me wrong, I love being a cannibal. There's nothing better than getting together with the family and barbequing some "long pork" as we like to call it. I don't expect you to be a cannibal like me, so I'll live my lifestyle and you live yours. The only problem with my arguement is this: I wouldn't be too happy if someone tried to eat me. No cannibal would. Deep down, despite all the rationalizations, cannibals know what they are doing is wrong. Absolutely. ...

It's happening all over, even in England. The above normal hot summer is causing a phenominal year for whine.
Just be proportionate with the seethe that goes with the whine to keep it nicely balanced.

Where's the Update? September 4, 2003

I am re-coding and redesigning the whole site, as well as reopening some sections. It should be ready soon. Bear with me. It will be worth it in the long run.
