I went to subway today and I had a drink when coming out, and there was this homeless person, so I gave it to him, and he was like "you saved my life", and he was shaking and walking really slow. I felt bad.
And as of right now, I'm actively avoiding someone. For strange reasons.
Aditya and Alex took a 1 foot long sub. What gluttons.
o. There are these Christian people outside and they have 15 pizza boxes stacked up and apparently, if you convert, they'll give it to you....
15 * 5 = $75. That's how much conversion costs the Christians these days.

Most people are good, so ignore that little smudge. And for most people, the bad is much smaller than depicted in this picture.
And for the truly evil, they'll get struck down.
Also, I ask you to call me once in a while to have lunch or something. I tend to get caught up in things.

I did absolutely nothing today. I have yet to listen to the entire batman soundtrack, and I found some postcards from Singapore, as well as this really.. strange/cute/funny looking accessory for a phone.
Pictures on that later. Also, the way things are going, I will have 2 finals this semester. Totally pussying out? Yeah. Ah well.

Five surgeons were taking a coffee break. The first surgeon said, "Accountants are the best to operate on because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered."
The second surgeon said, "Nah, librarians are the best. Everything inside them is in alphabetical order."
The third surgeon responded, "Try electricians, man! Everything inside them is color coded."
Then the fourth doctor interceded, "I prefer lawyers. They're heartless, spineless, gutless and their heads and their butts are interchangeable."
To which the fifth surgeon, who had been quietly listening to the conversation, replied, "I like engineers. They always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end."

I loved that psychotropic compound that psychiatrist used. I want some of that stuff...
On other news, I got a card in the mail, saying Comcast is doubling our connection speed for free...I think its taking them a while to slowly rise it or something...
It used to be 4000down 385up.
Ah well. Next week is the last week of shadowing (which means I have to get some pictures of Methodist, etc.). I will write about the most interesting (comical as well as serious) of events in a chronicle post sometime.. next week..
Next week is also when I'm moving out to UT. See you guys there. I know I've been flaky all summer. Gomenasai.
Also, next week is when I plan to get that super awesome cool flashlight, which is $54, which means it really is awesome.

After hearing this, I thought she would say something like "They should be allowed to vote". She goes "I think we should force them to become citizens or remove them".
BAaaAahahaha... That's the problem with Texas. Too many rednecks with shotguns.
That Sheehan woman left Crawford today (as many of you know, she's sitting outside, waiting for a meeting with the president because her son died in Iraq).
She'll be back. You know, I think her cause is justified, but she probably won't get a meeting. I love the media circus she's creating.
Although, if I was her, there'd be a lot more than "protests".. Can anyone say.. grenades? maybe a dirty nuke or two....
Oh and before anyone comments, I despise any country that uses nuclear or thermonuclear devices for anything..wars..threatening..etc..(Basically US, Pakistan, North Korea = Axis of Evil)

The only fleeting reference to ID that I agree to be placed in textbooks... is this: "There are many people who still do not accept the validity of Darwin's theory". That's it. Final.
And you know what? Even if they put it in the textbooks, when this poor misguided soul comes to a college (like UT) and takes a bio class (like evolution with Mueller) and raises his hand to ask about ID, he'll get 3 shots in the face from Mueller. And then Mueller will proceed to lightly torch his carcass and make a human flag to be waved from the tower.
(I kid you not. Don't say ID in front of Mueller. I want to say they grow bees for fun in the Evolution lab, but don't test it.)
Speaking of bees...
This is one of the problems with summer... "yard work". See that little hole in the hedge? BEES BE LIVING THERE. I've circled some bees in the picture for your viewing fun. I was half way in trimming that hedge (electric too) when I noticed the buzzing. Also, we have a bunny problem. Now I'm ok with them eating the grass, but thats not all they do... They also leave little balls. I was probably as confused as ever. "Bunny crap". BUNNIES POO IN MY LAWN.
haha. I have to get a picture of this...

And not just man. All of life has been continually advancing, slowly, but very undirected. Through a process called "Natural Selection", individual traits are randomly created. Very randomly. If the trait helps, that organism lives on. If it doesn't, the organism dies, along with the trait. Hence, only the good traits are preserved.
This was the greatness of Darwin's theory. It makes sense 100% of the time. Now the arguments the "Intelligent Design" people make are based on implications derived from Darwin's theory. (Asexual organisms, complexity, etc).
When Darwin presented his theories, the Catholic Church strongly shot him down. It said "there was no way that man came from monkeys" etc. etc. Then people said "We have to separate church and state". And so the "creationism" argument is now invalid in all books, teachings, etc (since education is a part of the state).
Intelligent Design is when people say "There is no way evolution can slowly create man"..."It must be someone intelligent that created man".
They're basically pulling the whole Creationism brouhaha by saying man is too complex to be created through evolutionary means. Remember, there is no way to test "Intelligent Design", therefore it is not a scientific theory.
This cartoon jokes at it, but this is one of the many evidences against Intelligent Design. Ask me for more.

At about 10:15pm (ish), Jonathan and his concubines came over to... "proclaim that they were bored". That's about it.
If only the Tamil Tigers were in Kashmir...
I ditched my old mouse (Sibin's) and finally got a nice notebook optical wireless mouse. So handy! The receiver is 1/2 the size of my little finger. [yawns]. I better retire soon.
Again.. If anyone has "No Control" by Manuel, fork that shit over. Now.
And this monkey thinks that "Intelligent Design" is the way to go. I'll tell you guys what that is tomorrow.

Yes. For those of you wondering, some guy wrote up a way in which Byakugan can be scientifically derived. I must say, I've found someone nerdier than myself...
And Papa John's Barbeque Chicken Pizza is so heavenly. I had half a pizza. I'm not sure how well you guys know me, but 1/2 a pizza is... a deathblow to my cholesterol levels.
Do you guys listen to "Ode to Joy" much? I was thinking about that one question Ginger asked in Humanities class about.. 4 years ago (wow! 4 years!). Beethoven had a pretty bad life, yet he wrote happy music like Ode to Joy.
Btw, The best "version" of Ode to Joy I've heard is the one from Immortal Beloved, the movie about Beethoven. I'll post that version soon...
Oh, yeah, watch "Immortal Beloved". It's good.
I think I'm going to eat more pizza.

Here goes what the conversation was:
Girl: How are you? [complete stranger]
Me:.. I'm.. fine..
Girl: That's nice.. Do you smoke? I'm going out for a bit?
Me: [uncomfortably] No.. Sorry...
See... That was a seduction attempt gone wrong. This is how it should have gone.
Girl: You look like a physics major.
Girl: So what do you think of the fringe effect on M-M?
Girl: I think that as long there is a fringe, we can't discount the possibility of ether..
Girl: Every experiment since M-M had some fringe effect...
Me: Take me with you. Now.
See? Now that's a successful seduction attempt. Lesson learned?
Steps to seduce me:
1) Say Hi.
2) Talk about physics
3) ...and be decent looking.
lol. In other news, people complained that the dashboard meter shot is not a vaild shot of the "magic carpet". I'll post something more exiting later, but here's the desk I'm working at currently:
That big fat book on the bottom ledge? You best guess. (and yes. That is Azureus running. So sue me)

40mph, about 1400 RPMs. Pretty efficient eh? On the other hand, I am running out of gas.
Downtown Dallas @ about.. 710am.
My schedule today (so far)
(around) 550AM - Woke up/Shower/Food/Etc.
640ish - Started out for Methodist Medical
730ish - Got there.
730-1200 - Dealt with some crazy people, thefts, drugs, mean patients
1200 - Decided I wanted to go to Fry's because I need a new mouse
1240ish - Got to Fry's but spent 4 minutes looking for a new mouse. 20 minutes later, I was still there, because I like flashlights.
They had this one flashlight (84 lumens!!). I shined it in my eye and WAAAH, I'm STILL seeing spots in my eyes. I have to get that someday. (its $54. Oh yeah.. Now you know its good stuff)
Got home at 120ish, ate, messed around, watched The Daily Show with John Stewart and now its 3pm.
4: Had to pick up bratty sister. And now its 5:something.
Conclusion? I may be mentally handicapped because I like shiny things. Ooh.. flashlight!
I'm going to buy that someday, and make everyone I know temporarily blind and annoy the shit out of people.
Then I'll feel bad about doing so.
Here's the plan for later (if you care to know)
5-6: Something.. Movie...anime...TV...BBC News...something animated and moving.
6-10: work, mess around, work some more.
My sister is watching the Simpsons right now. That show needs to quit. 13 years and nothing new. Sux.

Have you guys seen this? It's the new DIET COKE ad. "tingle...it's a diet coke thing." I'm sorry to say this, but diet coke is the worst thing I've ever tasted. It's better to drink water.
On another note, the house is finally going to fill up. Finally, I can get some nice sleep. No more visits from scary Grudge girl!
Tomorrow, pictures of my magic carpet (the REAL ONE, not some look alike picture I found on the internet) and.. hospital pictures, etc.
Exciting, huh? Of course. Pictures are always cool.

Let's look at a couple of timelines:
In 1900 - The fastest we could go was.. a ship, perhaps a train. Those were limited to 40-50mph.
2000 - The fastest manmade object is interstellar probe Voyager 1, 39,000mph.
1900 - Telephone was barely out, even still, no connection across the world (first transatlantic cable linking North America and Europe was laid 1956)
2000 - Email. You know its instant. And its worldwide too. (hello yoshika!)
1900 - Conventional TNT. Nothing that powerful, and certainly no global deployment.
2000 - Thermonuclear device:
Enough said. The maximum tested yield of a hydrogen bomb is 58 megatons, as opposed to the Hiroshima/Nagasaki, which were 16-20 kilotons
16 kilotons : 16,000 tons of TNT
58 megatons: 58,000,000 tons of TNT
