School

 
 30 Aug 2003 @ 10:27 AM 

The Friday Five is all about Back to School.

  1. Are you going to school this year? Yep.
  2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc)? If no, when did you graduate? I graduated High School in 1988, but I’m a junior in college now. Sad, eh?
  3. What are/were your favorite school subjects? Math, sciences.
  4. What are/were your least favorite subjects? Anything liberal arts. This semester, I’m thinking “ethics” is gonna suck ass.
  5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite? There was a teacher in high school that let me get away with murder, so that was cool. But, my favorite would have been Mr. H (long German name escapes me) from 7th and 8th grade. He’s my favorite because he gave me high-energy electrical things to play with. How many 13 year olds get to build a Jacob’s Ladder?

According to Philadelphia Inquirer, Disney is planning to kill off their traditional animation and transition to a CG-only shop. Some folks are decrying this as the end of an entire artform. Michael Eisner has declared that 2-d is dead, so that’s a pretty good indication of the direction Disney will take.

Considering that the only big money-makers for the house of mouse in the past decade have been from Pixar (all computer-generated), it’s understandable that Disney sees the winds changing. Of course, the fact that the studio lost around a hundred million bucks on Treasure Planet may have been the final nail in the traditional 2-D coffin.

This is something I didn’t know existed before. You can view the latest posts to all of LiveJournal in one place. Two things struck me: I know a lot of the old hands, and they seem to post an awful lot, but none of them were shown when I glanced at the feed; second, there’s a lot of Russian folks on LJ.

Oh, and there is an RSS version as well. Gotta love RSS…

Thai ban ‘Big Flabby Buttocks’ and “One Woman, Two Men”, because they are afraid the current pop songs (only available in Thai) could encourage promiscuity or marital infidelity.

Gee, don’t you think the hundreds of brothels and child prostitute rings are more of a moral problem in Thailand? Just thinking.

Twister Duvet Cover available soon in the UK. It’s only available in Double Bed size, so it’s perfect for your next dorm party but not appropriate for groups of more than four in one bed. Make your own joke.

The Gender Genie claims to be able to identify the gender of an author with 80% accuracy. Based on 4 samples of my writing (both formal and informal pieces), I’d have to say it can identify my gender with 0% accuracy. I also pasted in a couple pieces from Buff’s Livejournal, and it got them wrong too. If it can’t even tell the bombastic prose of the self-proclaimed Thunder God is male, I doubt its accuracy in any situation.

My favorite quote from a National Post story on Islamic headgear:

In 1981, Abol-Hassan Bani-Sadr, the first president of the Islamic Republic, announced that “scientific research had shown that women’s hair emitted rays that drove men insane.”

I have to agree with Catherine on the futility of snooze alarms. I’ve never understood how someone could lull themselves into sleeping 7 minutes longer, but then I also don’t understand people who set their clocks ahead in order to be not late. I’m not capable of fooling myself like that.

As for snooze alarms in particular, if you can get up later and still make it where you need to go on time, just set the clock later. If you happen to awaken before the alarm, there’s no harm done. If you sleep until the alarm goes off, you know you need to move it, like right now. Maybe if I were someone who required 45 minutes and two cups of coffee in the morning before I could leave my door, the snooze alarm concept would make more sense to me…

OK, I figure I should restore my original Windows XP fonts, from the CDROM. Um, how do I do that? I could figure it out in Win98SE and ME, but XP seems to be set up to frustrate anyone who wants a straightforward answer to a simple question.

I’ve finally pinned down the problem with ugly fonts that I first noticed on BlooJanuary’s journal last year. I seem to have ugly Lucida fonts on my system. Check out the screenshot and tell me if anyone else has Lucida fonts that are ugly below 12 points or if there is something wrong with my fonts.

Britain is running low on beer. Shoot, they may get so desperate they may even buy American pilsner soon. Nah, they’d rather drink water.

I’m impressed as usual with Jason’s writing today, and his piece on
Religion as a mental illness is particularly good. When you think of how many wars have been waged in the name of a deity, you’d think someday we’d learn better.

I find it interesting that I hadn’t heard anything of this on the national news the past few days. You’d think if Iraqi Trailers were for making hydrogen, not biological arms, someone would have made a big deal of it.

Not saying that the Bush administration’s dissembling, misdirection, and outright lying is malicious, of course. It’s all just the normal way of doing business for neoconservative ideologs.

The rest of this entry is from the FAS Secrecy News mailing for today. Forgive the redundancy.

You just cannot beat the Internet Toilet Roll Browser for bizarre idea of the day. Amazing what people will build, isn’t it?

I wonder, though – TP tough enough to print on I wouldn’t want near my bum. Just sayin’.
