Scientific Fact
On two separate occasions now, both within a day, I have been witness to the phrase “scientifc fact”.  One appeared on an MIT student’s finance blog, and the other was overheard during a pro-against religious discussion in the student center.  Because this is MIT, nay, especially because this is MIT (i.e. everyone should already know this), I feel compelled to remind everyone...

Does God Exist?
For no particular reason, I figured that I would go ahead and ostentatiously make a post about God.  Originally, this was supposed to be a  Christmas post, but I turned out to be slower than originally anticipated.  As usual. Rather than getting into a highly invested and emotionally biased discussion about whether or not God exists for this reason (or the lack... Read more →

Imminent Collapse
I’m telling you, the US economy is going to collapse. How am I “preparing” for it?  Well, I’m buying gold. And wool. If I can stay warm in the winter with a super awesome black wool coat, and have gold bars to prop my bed up with, then even if the dollar disappears, I’ll be able to go anywhere. Now ppl are...

Loss of The Inner Monologue
So apparently, my inner monologue has migrated somewhat to become more of an outer monologue, lets say.  The most recent occurrence went something like this… I was sitting in the student center, wondering why I was at MIT, and then reminiscing about the episode of Macgyver that got me interested in mit so many years ago.  Well, reminiscing turned into looking online,...

I’ve become a keyboard snob
As I surf around online looking for the “perfect” keyboard, and also mentally design my own (and calculate the cost of fabrication), I realize that I’ve become a bit of keyboard snob.  I’m typing on this laptop keyboard, and every other character, I crack my knuckles and lament that it is impossible to do anything worth doing on this piece of crap.  ...

Panucci’s Pizza
When I was in NYC this past week, I found myself riding the Brooklyn Bound B line (“watch out for the closing doors, binng pooong”).  As I was riding, I wondered if I would pass some place named Panucci’s Pizza, and if they would have a Cheese Pizza + Soda combo, priced at $10.77, Fry’s PIN number. And I got off to... Read more →

American Culture
So I’m on my way back to Boston from NYC, after visiting my family, waiting in line for the Chinatown bus.  For the first time ever, in anything, I’m the first one in line.   As we wait for close to an hour for the bus, the line grows behind me, eventually reaching like 100ft, totally around the block corner.  As I’m...

The Light of the Shining Star
So I found myself watching the Karate Kid part 1, yeah yeah, don’t laugh (go Cobra Kai!) Ralph Macchio and his scrawny, irreverent American-ness towards the martial arts. I found myself contemplating the character of Mr. Miyagi. Not that he’s the semi-mystical, Obiwan-type character, which he is, but his back story.  Apparently (in KK1 (they change it in KK2)), Mr. Miyagi is... Read more →

My Girlfriend
I’ve started to realize that my blog is becoming my girlfriend.  I share things with her, whom I would share with no-one else.  Sometimes she decides to share with others on my behalf, but usually she keeps them to herself.  And like any good girlfriend, she’s way more popular than I myself am, stealing attention away, or making me seem so much...

Today
Was a really productive day.  Usually I like to include “quality content” (of course it depends upon the evaluator) in my posts, but today I just feel like writing about nothing.  Nothing happened, except that some robot broke into my laptop server and it got partitioned off of the lids/csail network, (despite the ridiculous amount of effort into fixing the laptop in...
