Have fun being able to legally star in and watch porn.

I sing the official Russian 'Happy Birthday!' song:

Poost begoot neooklyooshl
Peshehodee po loosham
Ee voda po asfaltoo rekoi
Ee neyasno prohosheem
V etot dyen nepogoshee
pochemoo ya vesyelee takoi


Chorus: sing twice
Ee ya eegrayoo na garmoshkye
Oo prohosh na veedoo
K soshaleneeyoo dyen roshdneeya
Tolko raz v godoo


Translation:
So what if pedestrians run
clumsily through puddles
and water is flowing along the asphalt like a river.
It's unclear to the passers-by
On this horrible (from the point of view of weather) day
Why I am so happy (merry).

I am playing the accordion.
In front of the passers-by
Unfortunately, my birthday
Is only once a year.
(Repeat the last two lines)

On second thought...

quote:
Unlike nuclear DNA in which the genes are rearranged by ~50% each generation (due to the process called recombination), there is usually no change in mtDNA from parent to offspring by this mechanism. Because of this and the fact that its mutation rate is higher than nuclear DNA and easily measured, mtDNA is a powerful tool for tracking matrilineage, and has been used in this role for tracking many species back hundreds of generations.
—Wikipedia

Although if you don't trust Wikipedia...

quote:
The human genetic code, or genome, is 99.9 percent identical throughout the world. What's left is the DNA responsible for our individual differences—in eye color or disease risk, for example—as well as some that serves no apparent function at all. Once in an evolutionary blue moon, a random, harmless mutation can occur in one of these functionless stretches, which is then passed down to all of that person's descendants. Generations later, finding that same mutation, or marker, in two people's DNA indicates that they share the same ancestor. By comparing markers in many different populations, scientists can trace their ancestral connections.

In most of the genome, these minute changes are obscured by the genetic reshuffling that takes place each time a mother and father's DNA combine to make a child. Luckily a couple of regions preserve the telltale variations. One, called mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), is passed down intact from mother to child. Similarly, most of the Y chromosome, which determines maleness, travels intact from father to son.

I read something interesting about there only being 17 basic gene sequences of mitochondria throughout humanity. It was in a National Geographic that I can't find. Just try to imagine how profound it was, or ask Cryptozoology.

The State of the Union in General

Bush made his seventh State of the Union Address yesterday evening. Some small and rather anal joys from the speech:

-Bush appearing to grope Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's breast when shaking hands with her afterwards
-Bush winking at some audience member during a period of applause
-Jim Webb looking as though he was about to start laughing halfway through the Democratic rebuttal
-Bush smooching two women and getting grabbed by one of them on his way out of the Chamber
-According to CNN, Nancy Pelosi blinking about 85 times per minute during the speech

-The President talking about a man from the Congo coming to America to study at Georgetown, become a star athlete, and raise enough money to build a hospital in the Congo, potentially saving many lives (scattered applause)
-The President talking about the Baby Einstein program, which provides children with an early start in education, enriching the lives of many of the nation's youth (scattered applause)
-Bush talking about one man saving another guy in a subway station (huge, uproarious, long applause)

-Vice-President Cheney starting to zone out on the teleprompter, pop breath mints and start wiping his nose
-According to CNN (agian), John McCain appearing to fall asleep
-The President saying the word "Darfur" once, promoting increasing world awareness about the conflict when Americans lag the most in awareness about the conflict, and receiving a standing ovation for it
-The Supreme Court justices sitting down and not applauding the entire time
-The raised seats on either side of the aisle out of the Chamber making the President look about five feet tall

Disclaimer: In the long haul, Bush talked about some important stuff, and will be able to accomplish a lot of great things as long as he actually does what he talked about in his speech this time. I'm not trying to belittle the bravery of someone risking their life of someone else in a subway. Pointing all these things out was needless and nitpicky, and shouldn't be taken offensively towards the Prez at all.

Anyway.

Anybody else have fun with the thing?

If it's a Mac, you haven't tried it already, and you're not too far in the game, I would recommend trashing the program, and then rebooting your computer while rebuilding the desktop. Then re-install the program. If you're using Windows, do whatever the hey the equivalent is on there. :) Making sure you don't have too many programs open or not enough disc space for a save file and that all the files for the game seem to be in order (read the docs) may help.

If the problem continues, post what the error message that pops up says (if there is one), and if we can't help (or there's not one), e-mail Jeff and tell him your CD is buggy. I think he's ok with replacing bad copies.

Chromite is a substance made up of iron, chromium and oxygen, known as 'ferrous chromium oxide' and mined in large quantities from Pakistan. My question is this: what reasoning could ol' Rich have had in naming his company after it?

Because chromite is a kind of stone and Ocean Bound makes one want to put a brick through one's monitor?

Drakey got in touch with me a while ago. He's a board administrator, has banned more spammers than Greenpeace has bacon burgers, and is a very accomplished gamer. Somehow, in considering all of this, I sorta figured he'd be a 35 year-old with his own apartment. But, lo and behold, he's a year or two older than me, and is going to my future college. Trippin' balls!

Considering there's been so much suprise of late about everybody's ages, I propose that those of us who are willing post how old they really are. And no fooling; it would be hard to believe that Spiderweb Software could attract too many little 55 year-old ladies.

On that note, I am seventeen years old, eighteen in April.

I am old enough to...
1) Not be allowed to order off the kid's menu at Olive Garden.
2) Be too close to a senior citizen to buy a Happy Meal™ anymore.
3) Drive without my mom.
4) Watch rated 'R' movies.
5) Smoke.

I am not yet old enough to...
1) Legally have sex with people older than me.
2) Purchase or perform in pornography.
3) Buy cigarettes.
4) Visit the marked-off section of the Wild Berry shop in town.
5) And more!

I'm sorry, Nico! Speaking as another string player, that's a really awful thing to have happen, especially once your hands have developed the way you like them. Once, though, when I got a really bad cut on my right hand and couldn't hold the bow for my bass, I kept my left hand in shape by "hammering" on the bass for a bit —— just using my left hand to pick out different notes on the fingerboard without really playing anything —— as a warm up. It wasn't amazingly fulfilling exciting, but doing it a little bit each day kept the calluses strong until the cut healed up. If you can work your right hand enough to pluck the strings, you at least can practice your music pizzicato and keep your left hand in shape while having a bit more fun than just hammering.

Playing the guitar keeps your hands in shape too (especially with cello, since guitar strings and cello strings are more the same size than bass strings), and plus, playing guitar is purely cool. :)

Take it easy, Nico! Playing Asteroids has its benefits too.
