TeeVees and More

So in the new apartment there is a big flat screen TV, Super Cable, and a PS3. What shows/games should I be watching/playing. Keep in mind that I have been out of the current tv/video game loop for a long, long time. And I haven't played any PS 2 games except FF12 which I'm playing right now. Although with all the AI in that game it's more like just moving characters around while they play the game instead of me.

The key eventually leads the characters possessing it to a secret door, at which point the key beings to glow with a faint blue light. The character feels a magnetic tug toward the wall and can either guide the key to the keyhole or merely release the kay, which causes it to shoot like a dart into the stone wall. Once the key connects with the wall, a secret dooropens, revealing a passage. The key can the be removed from the wall, causing the secret door to slide shut after 15 seconds.

Kitty Updates

So I'm mostly moved in now. I took Morte over on monday. As expected, the cat living there wasn't too pleased. They hissed at each other a lot as we forced them to socalize. Morte didn't his at all at first, but when I made him look at the other cat and not just pretend she wasn't there he managed to summon up some courage. Then he ran and hid under the couch.

Now the other cat hids a lot and hisses at everyone.

It's cute, though, the other cat is long haired, white and fluffy and morte is short haired and all black, so it's basically Ceiling Cat vs Basement Cat. My new roommate is convinced that they are having a secret love affair at night and are just putting on airs for the rest of us.

Mortes doing very well, though. He lets my room mate pet him and only spends most of the time hiding under my bed. At night he even comes up on top of the bed and looks out the window. He's such a brave kitty.

He is also thoroughly commited to kicking litter everywhere. Normally with an open litter pan he gets it everywher, but since the new place is carpeted, and the only real place for the pan is my room, I got a cover for it with a little swinging door. Last night he was kicking litter so vigorously that it woke me up, and there is litter all over the floor right outside the little swinging door. I gotta get a dust buster or something.

Work is still pain, but at least the damages from this year's God Storm are all repaired now. We were without power for 8 days, but some people were a good 13. And let me tell you, they were just thrilled about it, but only very rarely called in to let the power company know how they felt.

I've been so stressed out recently that I've started to get migraines when I exert myself. This would be only a mild inconvience if I wasn't moving. And apparently some more embarassing activities count as exertion to my noggin. This might very well cause me to go insane sometime in the near future.

Finally, I have cartoon network back in my life. I know I shouldn't be this wrapped up in television, but getting to watch the Venture Brothers and Home Movies last night made me really happy. It's been more than two years without. Apparently they don't show much anime anymore, which is lame, and for some reason the people who used to make Tom Goes to the Mayor somehow still have jobs. But full Cable on a big flat screen TV makes John happy. God bless roommates with nice things I can leach off of.

And I paid rent last night. I actually live there now, and not in my mother's house anymore. And soon I won't be living out of boxes and suitcases.

Gotta go. DnD tonight.

I'm moving out of my parents house this week, into an apartment with a couple that is of my age and education level and likes the same things I like. And they have nice things, like cable and a flatscreen TV and PS3.

And now for something completely relevant

[1] Under what circumstances would you be willing to attempt to assassinate the political leader of your country?

Maybe if it was some kind of evil robot overlord

[2] Who do you think would make a better US president: Hitler or Stalin? (You can't say neither... in this world it's illegal for you to not vote)
Stalin. I personally know less about the horrible attrocities he commited.

[3] If you had to bomb one city, anywhere in the world, which would you pick? (Picking none is not an option for this question.)
Indianapolis. It is the shithole of the world.

[4] Is there ever a good reason for terrorism?
Only when used to combat evil robot overlords.

[5] If there existed an infallible robot of super-human intelligence, would you vote for it as president of the world?
No. All robots are evil and hate mankind, and I will not assist in their plans to take over the world

[6] Under what circumstances would you agree to have your country's army disbanded?
Magical World Peace?

[7] When cloning technology is perfected, do you think war should be fought with clones?
Clones are people too. They just have to pay.

[8] What's more immoral, stealing to feed your children or working for an arms manufacturer?
Arms Manufacturing.

[9] Should there be shame in being on welfare or other forms of state benefits?
Depends on the situation. If you can support yourself but choose not to, then yes.

[10] If you were homeless and could get no help from government, would it be wrong to set up a home (tent/house/whatever) on land protected for environmental reasons? If you did, who would be culpable, you or government?
Yes, and you.

[11] Should people need a license to have children?
There are some people who should not be allowed to breed. Maybe not licenses for all, but maybe life bans for some.

[12] Should anyone ever be forced to have an abortion, and under what circumstances?

[13] Do you think it's fair that rent can be upped if you have pets but not if you have children?

[14] Should corporal punishment, with parental permission, be reintroduced in schools?
Sure, why not.

[15] Given that fast food is more harmful to your health than marijuana, should it be banned?
There should be regulations on it's nutritional value. Selling poison and calling it food should not be allowed.

[16] Do you think it's okay for companies to run drug tests for jobs which don't involve operating heavy or dangerous machinery?

[17] Are people who say they love animals but eat factory farmed meat hypocrites?
No. I may love animals, but that doesn't mean I love all animals ever.

[18] Under what circumstances would you be willing to consume human flesh?
Uhhh. If it was life or death, maybe.

[19] Are all (post-natal) human lives equal in value/worth?
No. The people I care about are worth more than other people.

[20] If communication was developed with an animal sufficient that they could communicate consent, would it be wrong to have consensual sex with the animal?
No. Most animals are completely at the whims of overwhelming hormonal and instrinctual drives. It would be similar to having sex with a child who didn't know any better.

[21] What do you think the age of sexual consent should be?

[22] Do you think porn that contains hyper-realistic depictions of children (modelled, painted, etc) should be legally regarded as the same as real-child porn?
Yeah, sure.

[23] If you had to burn one book, what book would you pick?
Moby Dick

[24] Would you burn a cross whilst dressed in white robes for a million dollars?
Maybe. I do like money.

[25] Should time travel, if it ever becomes a reality, be legal given all the risks it poses to life as we know it?
No. Spinning the Earth backwards would make everyone go flying off into space.

[26] If you had an envelope containing absolute proof of the existence or non-existence of any deity of your choice, would you open it?
No. Faith is defined by a lack of proof.

[27] Should suicide be legal/acceptable for long-term debilitating / emotionally painful incurable mental illnesses? Does your answer to this differ from your answer to the same question with regards to painful, debilitating physical illnesses?

ZTB's guide to phone edakit (and spelling)

Following these three simple rules when conducting business over the phone will vastly decrease your chances of being stabbed in the fucking eye.

1. Asking how someone is doing is mere pleasantry. The correct answer is "I'm doing fine, how are you?" The correct response to this further querry is also "I'm doing fine." It is not an excuse to say "I'm not doing fine and it's your fault."

2. When someone asks if there is anything else you need, don't say something idoitic like "How about a million dollars." or "You could pay my bill for me."

3. Do not have your phone set up so that person you are talking to hears feedback of what they just said a second after they actually say it. This can cause headaches and homocidal rage.
