I drove a stick shift around a parking lot yesterday... it's pretty nerve racking when I'm supposed to pay attention to everything around me, too...

The Pirates of Dark Water is a fantasy animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera and Turner Entertainment in the early 1990s. The series followed a group of adventurers on a quest to collect the Thirteen Treasures of Rule, which possessed the combined power to stop an evil substance known as "Dark Water" from consuming the alien world of Mer.

Parts of Mer are continually in flux, like a river of spiked rocks that rises out of the ocean in the first episode and appears to defy physics (none of the characters are bewildered by the spectacle aside from its danger)

I stayed at work a bit longer than scheduled because a coworker was late. After leaving, I ran into Shaun in the parking lot, a coworker I had in 2001 at Hollywood Video. I suspected I'd run into him again, since when he worked with me, people he knew would run into him who had not seen him for a while. My theory was undeniable when he ran into my sister (who also worked with him) in Korea. He's going back to the army, but he's expecting an early leave (for good reasons).

In other news, apparently some pharamceutical company wants vitamin B6 banned so they can sell mc-1, which is made from vitamin B6: (multiple google search result)

I. Ignorance is innocence
Complicated explanations are suspect
The world is simple, and there must be a simple explanation for everything.
Certainty is strength, doubt is weakness
Admitting alternatives is undermining one's own belief.
Changing one's mind means one has wasted the time spent holding the prior opinion.
Your opinion matters as much as anyone else's
When a person has studied a topic, he has no more real knowledge than you do, just a hidden agenda.
The herd should be followed
The contemplative lemming gets trampled
Popular beliefs must be true.
No bad idea can survive.
People are generally smart.
Even if a popular belief doesn't pan out, at least you'll be in the same boat as everyone else.

II. Causality is selectable
All interconnection is apparent
Otherwise, complicated explanations would be necessary.
The end supports the explanation of the means
A successful person's explanation of the means of his success is highly credible by the very fact of his success.
You can succeed by emulating the purported behavior of successful people
This is the key to the cargo cult. To enjoy the success of another, just mimic the rituals he claims to follow.
Your idol gets the blame if things don't work out, not you.
You have a right to your share
You get to define your share.
Your share is the least you will accept without crying injustice.
Celebrate getting more than your share.

III. It's not your fault
If it's good for you, it's good
Society is everyone else.
Good intentions suffice
You can always apologize.
There is no long term
Don't miss an opportunity.
Consequences are things that happen to others
Only you can hold yourself accountable. Don't let others make you do that.
If somebody starts the blame game, you can still win it.
There are evil people and institutions, and surely one of them is more responsible than you are.
You are not the problem
An ugly image means a bad mirror.

IV. Death is unnatural
You're special
Bad things shouldn't happen to you.
Pain is wrong
Life should not hurt.
It's a Whiffle World.
Tragedy is a synonym for calamity
Bad things are never consequences of one's own action or inaction.
There will be justice
Bad people get punished.
You, however, will be forgiven.

Some bailout news.

Also, the text mentions some laws their group wants. They are interesting, for example, One Subject at a Time Act to make congress vote on one law a time or the Read the Bills Act, to make congressmen read an entire bill (apparently they don't/can't) to keep a rushed vote from happening.

A surprisingly low score... just because of travel??

So, triscuitzop, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 0% unique and 37% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy travel). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is intellectual.

Your overall weirdness is: 15

(The average level of weirdness is: 27.
You are weirder than 28% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

Immediately after posting that last entry, I was messaged by someone. Eventually, I figured out why the conversation was weird: http://community.livejournal.com/themissinghat/profile?mode=full It's not quite a bot... more like a forced conversation between two people.

Yes, I'm trying to fish for another by posting!
1:42 pm
I read through many of my old LJ posts. I found that the older ones are more interesting, mostly because they're less familiar. Recently, I haven't posted about myself, though many things have happened.

I have been trying to judge the time I've used after graduating high school. On one hand, I've seen a bunch of places, met a bunch of people, and gained experiences... but, I still have the same debt from many years ago and I have no career. Seeing Duc graduate (8 years!) nags at this, too. I feel pressure to be doing something else. 'Get a car and commute to work.' It seems SO very rediculous, even though millions of people do it... which I think is why I don't want to. Though, how many people really want to spend so much money and time on 'getting to work'? Even if I had a car, I'd still ride my bike to work- barring bad weather, of course. For now, I'm looking into careers anyway to see what's what.

Aside, has hotmail stopped working for anyone else? I can only look at the email subjects. None of the buttons or links do anything when I click...
