    Really interesting blog post; the paragraph where Watts condemns most First Contact stories was particularly interesting to me, because I always bring up the very same thing whenever I get into discussions with people about how we anthropomorphize everything to such an illogical degree that it brings about a plethora of issues both practical and theoretical in nature.

    Sorry, didn't see this. Thanks though man, glad you enjoyed it. The novel is very good, and definitely something new and exciting in the sci-fi genre.

    And good on you, Ozz. Why was your licesnse revoked, if you don't mind my asking...?

    I think my cat is trying to train me. She knows that when the door's closed, I'm the only one who can open it. So when she was inside, and wanted to go out, she'd go up to the door, and paw at it and meow until I opened it. Then, she'd do the same thing from the outside five minutes later, after some light pawing.

    Now she goes up to the door, and then looks back at me first to see if I'll go open it before pawing at it. She doesn't even meow now. If she's looked at me already, she'll start pawing a little bit, but not as impatiently.

    Sometimes when you stare at a cat, the cat stares into you.

    I love the Jackson headstock so much that I really dislike the standard 3x3 headstocks of ESP/Schecter/Gibson....

    OVI (Operating a Vehicle while Impaired) about 2.5 years ago. The court seems to be dragging its feet in getting the proper documentation to my attorney to move this process forward. I figured this would happen, but it doesn't make me any less pissed off.

    Although, I'm not looking forward to paying 500 bucks to get my license back, but it'll be nice not having to blow into a machine to start my car!

    Well, all moved out of the old apartment and turned in the keys a couple hours ago. It was a nice apartment, and will certainly be missed. We're downgrading to an apartment half the size that costs twice the price. :cool: (but not really :cool:).

    Boston, here I come.

    A new day, a new blog post too.

    I just caught the issues you all are having with Avast. It's an Avast bug - it flags this site because I use an older (on purpose) version of VBulletin. You can add UltimateMetal.com has an exclusion to bypass.

    I've jerked off five times since Tuesday. Is there something wrong with me?

    That depends. Did you have a lot of free time or did you push aside other things for that purpose?

    What about some of the pages not loading? Occasionally i can't get to some of the user-based pages like subscriptions and PMs for a few minutes/hours at a time.

    I actually had a lot of free time. But I also felt very motivated in tugging the ole python, so there's a bith of both going on there I think.

    I was wondering about that for a long time, actually. Eventually I just turned Avast off since I didn't have the ork to change any settings.
