I'll be real with you guys, I didn't find out shit about quantum entanglement.

"Greg, how's your science thing going?"

"What?"

"The quantum whatever, that string thing you were going to figure out."

"...Oh! Yeah!"

"You figure it out?"

"No!"

"Have you been--"

"I gotta do that! When do I get off this shift?"

"You have about an hour and a half left before I can let you go."

"Alright! I'm going to go home, go to sleep, and then wake up and figure out quantum entanglement."

"So, okay, hold up though, you've had a bunch of days to figure it out, and you gave yourself less than a month to do it, and you didn't study it at all?"

"I, yeah, I mean, I'm a busy guy, Gabe. I got shit going on, but I'm still gonna do it, I got quantum entanglement to do."

"Hey, it's your life man, it's not like I'm making you do it."

"By the 21st! I'll figure it out, I'm on a roll today. Watch me."

"Gabe, how much do you know about quantum entanglement?"

"What?"

"Quantum entanglement."

"...Nothing?"

"Okay, so, at the very base level of all matter, everything is tiny vibrating strings."

"What are the strings made out of?"

"That doesn't matter. It's a bunch of tiny vibrating strings. If you get two of the strings close together, they vibrate at the same frequency. But if you move them apart, and change the vibration of one, the other one changes too, and no one knows why. Hey, pick a number."

"What?"

"Pick a number, one through thirty."

"Twenty one."

"Alright, I'm going to figure out why quantum entanglement exists before the 21st of the month."

Sometimes when I'm listening to music, I need to turn the volume up. Doing so on the Mac causes a little "pop" sound effect, and inevitably I like what that sound effect adds to whatever song I'm listening to. This often causes me to inadvertently turn the music up too loud, because I was jammin' to the pop sound effect.

THIS HAS BEEN ANOTHER EDITION OF "THINGS I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SHORTEN TO 140 CHARACTERS"

"Every morning, or at least whenever I wake, my first conscious act is to lightly press every one of my fingers against their corresponding palm, one by one. I do this because, without that ability, I would not be able to write, and were that the case, I would find no purpose in leaving slumber."

Figure I should throw together an official list. Bottoms up tops down (LADIES) (not really, I mean that I'm going from the bottom to the top, I hope that was apparent)

Graciously hidden behind a cut, so as not to utterly devastate your friends page.Collapse )

My FILM 202: Film Analysis class takes place between 3:10 and 5:00 PM, EST, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesday we watch a film, and on Thursday we have a lecture based on Tuesday's film.

On Thursdays, I normally get bored and stop paying attention around 3:30. On February 4, 2010, I noticed that my professor, Ofer Eliaz, said "right?" quite a bit. "Right?" in the sense that he was constantly asking us to affirm whatever his statement was. I decided to count how many times.

This does not include "right" in the sense of giving a direction, "right" in the sense of confirming someone else's statement, or the oft-used "alright".

Between 3:30 PM (beginning of counting) and 4:50 PM (released from class), my film professor said "Right?"

THREE HUNDRED AND ONE times.

Breaking it down even further:

"Right?"s per hour: 225.75~
"Right?"s per minute: 3.76~

This becomes even more astounding when one considers that a minimum of 15 minutes of Thursday's class was spent re-watching video. Taking this into consideration, we reach a RPH of 251~, and a RPM of 4.18~. Either way, it can be put at about one "right?" every fifteen seconds.

It's a little distracting.

Decided to trollop through my hard drive, clearing out what wasn't needed. Found some things sitting around, accumulated over the years, and decided to throw them in here instead of just destroying them. Who knows, maybe I'll return to them some day.

It's all behind this cut!Collapse )

Also found:
-a document titled "Dark Chronicles" which, if I ever get permission, will get posted someday.
-Several ideas for television pilots, with many partial scripts
-Multiple D&D campaign notes, one for each campaign I've imagined/participated in.
