There's a theory that it's impossible to completely adopt any form of political or governmental system since absolute extremes rarely exist in real life. You can't have a completely Communist system because it ends up failing due to human nature, so you have to adopt aspects of other systems in order to re-enforce the Communist part. Coincidentally, it seems you can't have a completely Capitalist system for more or less the same reason. The only reason the U.S. is doing so well (supposedly) is because it has Socialist aspects, like welfare and so on. It's a little like yin and yang, maybe: you have to adopt a little bit of your opposition to make your side work. Perfection doesn't exist, so you consciously have to be at least a little bit towards the other end of the spectrum to hold together, or something like that. But I'm probably not the best person to try and explain it.

EDIT: A whole bunch of misplaced commies. I mean, commas. Ba-dum-tsh. :P

Somehow it seems a little depressing that the Stalin's ghosts are obnoxious crabs. But the crab part does kinda show his personality pretty well.

So now this seems appropriate:

CNN reported this the other day:

quote:
[i]Chicken and egg debate unscrambled

Egg came first, 'eggsperts' agree[/i]

LONDON, England -- It's a question that has baffled scientists, academics and pub bores through the ages: What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Now a team made up of a geneticist, philosopher and chicken farmer claim to have found an answer. It was the egg.

Put simply, the reason is down to the fact that genetic material does not change during an animal's life.

Therefore the first bird that evolved into what we would call a chicken, probably in prehistoric times, must have first existed as an embryo inside an egg.

Professor John Brookfield, a specialist in evolutionary genetics at the University of Nottingham, told the UK Press Association the pecking order was clear.

The living organism inside the eggshell would have had the same DNA as the chicken it would develop into, he said.

"Therefore, the first living thing which we could say unequivocally was a member of the species would be this first egg," he added. "So, I would conclude that the egg came first."

The same conclusion was reached by his fellow "eggsperts" Professor David Papineau, of King's College London, and poultry farmer Charles Bourns.

Mr Papineau, an expert in the philosophy of science, agreed that the first chicken came from an egg and that proves there were chicken eggs before chickens.

He told PA people were mistaken if they argued that the mutant egg belonged to the "non-chicken" bird parents.

"I would argue it is a chicken egg if it has a chicken in it," he said.

"If a kangaroo laid an egg from which an ostrich hatched, that would surely be an ostrich egg, not a kangaroo egg."

Bourns, chairman of trade body Great British Chicken, said he was also firmly in the pro-egg camp.

He said: "Eggs were around long before the first chicken arrived. Of course, they may not have been chicken eggs as we see them today, but they were eggs."

The debate, which may come as a relief to those with argumentative relatives, was organized by Disney to promote the release of the film "Chicken Little" on DVD.
So, now that this entire branch of philosophy has been cleared up, any reactions?

If the world was one big wet dream, I would be in the Sahara.

I never did trust truck stop bathrooms, and this feeling was only re-enforced when I had this dream that I was sitting on a stall in the bathroom of a truck stop, when it hit me that the door of the stall was about two feet tall, and was also about three feet off the ground. Then I turned around and saw that the stall had no back wall and just happened to be in the middle of the truck stop's restaraunt, with two old guys were sitting at a table right behind my throne looking at me with much interest. They weren't even eating anything. Waking up in a cold sweat is never fun.

Going to a bathroom in a truck stop just isn't worth it.

Incidentally, anybody know why the Spidweb scenario table is updated like once every 23985 years? Is Jeff just busy, or is everybody doing BoA these days?

(Incidentally, it's really frikkin confusing that BoA is both a computer game and Bands of America, a marching band competition organization. It seemed to good to be true when I walked to school and found everybody talking about BoA. It was.)

If you transferred your Blades to your current computer somehow, that may have mungled it up a bit. If the original CD is still lying around somewhere, you may want to try just reinstalling it from there.

the exile I music in The Exile Trilogy

I once downloaded a version of the Little Fugue played on an organ, and it was like sticking pencils into my eardrums, or maybe listening to a car alarm for about 3 minutes. Either way, I don't really reccommend it.

I actually rather like the version on Exile I, but the bloody thing won't convert into something playable on iTunes, no matter what application you use. I finally just put the computer's microphone really close to the speakers and played the MIDI with some ancient program and recorded that. It sounds like the Little Fugue going through a cheese grater.

It could have something to do with Game Speed, which is adjustable in the Preferences of the game. And if that doesn't work, BoE is actually kinda fun if you play it with the 'No Sounds' option turned on.

Seriously though, having your sounds a beat too late shouldn't be too heinous a problem. The game should still be quite enjoyable.

The DaVinci Code is a great read and it really makes you think. The fact that just about every fact in the book is hokey, based on rumors and false research, or plain old made-up additionally means it really shouldn't be that offensive to the Papacy either. There are many interesting, non-threatening insights in the book, like the discussion of phi and Venus' trajectory, that are crazygonuts awesome to ponder, and plus, it's just fun to read as a book. Funny that the movie got such horrible reviews. I kinda liked it.

Transfer Games? in General

Using a firewire cable to connect your computers would probably be a safe and efficient way of transferring the games, although if your games are registered, you should have a registration CD or codes or something that you could use on your compy instead. If it's losing all your old saves that you are concerned about, just chuck them over to the new computer and they'll work as good as new.

Whatever happened to good old Timbuktu? Being able to spy on other people's computer and watch what they were doing and then controlling it was always so much fun.

EDIT: Or rather, the saves will work as good as when you saved them. If they worked as good as new, that really wouldn't be very good at all. :P

I also walked into the forest behind my house in my dad's old army raincoat, steel-toed boots, and a camouflage baseball cap, while carrying some huge hedge trimmers. I'm glad I didn't meet myself. It would have looked very sketchy.

—Probably someone's pictures of Prom. Or a virus. By accident.
Have you ever licked a 9 volt battery?

Ever thrown up in public?
—Probably. *hooargh*
Would you prefer being a millionaire or finding true love?

There was this neat theory in Discover a while back that the Universe was created in a massive explosion when the planes of two parrallel universes intersected at some point in spacetime, which somehow triggered a big energy rush and the creation of a new Universe. It's a little hard to wrap one's brain around this, since cosmologists are always saying that all the parrallel universes of the multiverse are really all in the same place, just in different dimensions. It makes you want to drink a big cup of coffee and watch Spaceballs for a while.

Douglas Adams probably got it right when he said the Universe was sneezed out by God, which leaves plenty of room for Creationists and Evolutionists. Or that the entire Universe will end and be replaced by one much more complicated once people figure out how it works, and that this has already happened more than once.

Terry Prachett says that the Universe was created by two of the Starturtles that carry the worlds on their backs mated in a "Big Bang" theory.
