Blogging is an interesting thing. People are in fact so interestesd in it that they start blogging about blogging. And then that’s interesting too so they blog about how they always blog about blogging. It’s a curious effect that people blog about it, and thus by blogging it, they create blogging about blogging about blogging about blogging. This leads to a cataclysmic cascade of recursive blogging, which thus leads further to me blogging about blogging recursively. It leads me to recursively blog about blogging recursively and thus recursively^n blogging about blogging. Just accept it, you’re stuck in a real nasty infinite loop. You should just accept it, but for more information see Blogging about Blogging about Blogging about …
During my long blogging absence, I went on a spiritual journey on the internet searching for God.
On the first step of my journey I used Wikipedia, my usual starting point for internet research. I learned that g.o.d. is actually a now defunct Korean boy band made up of 5 people. Strange, I hadn’t known that until the internet told me so.
I then went to DomainTools to try to find out whois god. Apparently God was created 1994-07-13 and will expire 2014-07-12. That is sad, but at least we now know when the world was started and when it will end. I also found out that God is Canadian, living in Vancouver. I would have thought he lived in Korea, but I suppose God does have the power to live in two places at once.
Wow, I had already learned a lot of new things about God, but I needed more; I wanted to actually see god. So I went to God on flicker and found a lot of strange and disturbing pictures that I dare not talk about. There are just somethings we humans were not meant to see.
Lastly, I wanted to know how many followers God has, so I went to Google Trends. Many people worship god, but britney is a close contender having surpassed god on multiple occasions:
However there is one more deity that is more popular than god and britney combined and then tripled!
Conclusion: porn is the most powerful deity
The second semester is now over and it has almost been a year since I came to Cornell University last summer. A lot has happened, so I felt like sharing some random thoughts I have about my experiences so far. Afterwards, I was surprised how much I could write about Cornell; I could have written a long post on every one of my random thoughts. Read on if you dare, I warn you it is very long.
Watching Television is an art. It is easy to waste your life in front of a T.V. and still get nothing out of it (believe me, I know). One must learn how to maximize entertainment and education while minimizing mindlessness and preventing the T.V. from taking control of your life. Here are some helpful guidelines I have developed through many years of intensive television viewing:
I know that it is somewhat of a cliche now, but I love Wikipedia. It is just so good; I can’t get over it. I get so angry whenever someone badmouths Wikipedia, saying that it is unreliable and unciteable. On the Internet, except for specialized libraries of scholarly articles, Wikipedia is the most reliable and has the most relevant information. Although it has a lot of pointless and poorly written articles, other articles more than make up for it. I can spend many hours just surfing around finding very interesting things and never getting bored.
I remember first going to wikipedia in fall 2004 and looking at Killdozer because my friends were talking about it. Editing articles isn’t my thing, I prefer to just browse, but I still have my account I made back then (it is over two years old). Here are some of my favorite articles:
Sorting_algorithm – Informative collection of sorting algorithms.
Monty_Python – More on Monty Python than you ever wanted to know.
Mike_the_headless_chicken – Self explanatory.
Sun – Very informative and great pictures.
List_of_tallest_buildings_in_the_world – Cool tall buildings.
These have some cool pictures of Lasers:
|I think Role Playing Games are the worst possible type of game. Good RPG’s trick you into believing that you are making progress in your life and that you are going somewhere when in fact it obviates your life. “Leveling Up” does create some amount of satisfaction, but this only draws a person closer to the game. And as you get a higher level, it is increasingly hard to improve your stats. Then the real world loses its value as you think to yourself while sleeping, “This is such a waste of time, I could be leveling up now. If only I could advance my sleeping level. Oh well.” Sooner or later you find yourself hating playing the game, yet feel compelled to play in order to get ahead of other players and gain a new completely useless item. This may be why Elder Scrolls IV is named Oblivion. What is more sick is that this is nothing compared to Massively-Multiplayer Online RPG’s (MMORGP). Luckily I have had only once had an MMORGP addiction, and I am now over that (I hope).|

So today, 9 years ago I turned 10 years old. It was quite a day and I got an awesome birthday card for reaching double digits in my age. To commemorate that day I have made a list of amazing things I have done in the last 9 years.
- I put 10 tootsie rolls in my mouth and eat them all without my hands.
- I watched 43 episodes (13.333 hours) of anime in a single day.
- My friend and I won first place in the state Science Olympiad in Mystery Archatecture.
- I drank a 2 liter of coca cola in one sitting and then drank more later that day.
- I discovered how to avoid the heat-death of the universe.
- I bowled a gutter-ball, then a spare.
- I once ordered a sandwich all by myself (although never again).
- I whistled so high pitch that people thought the smoke detector went off.
- I built an igloo large enough to stand in.
