I'm sorry to hear about you friend, I hope he pulls through.

I hope your friend's okay... :undecide:

To think I was contemplating swallowing a bottle of pills not so long ago...

I don't know you, Aeternae, but please be alright.

I'll be praying for your friend.

Thanks to everyone who wished good will on Aeternae. Checking his journal, it seems he's fine apart from some natural side effects from having too much of it. Thankfully, it seems Nyquil is a very poor drug to try to commit suicide with. One of my friends speculates this is intentional on the developers' parts.

Thanks everyone. :)

I was on the radio live and won free crap because I knew what Catwoman's given name was, thus completely justifying my obsession with superhero comics has been justified. On another note, the Catwoman casting is pretty perfect, along with everything else we know about The Dark Knight Rises. And the Superman reboot. And the Spider-Man reboot. And the Captain America reboot. And Thor. Over all, it's a great time to be a comic book geek.

In the class? A good number knew a lot about the subjects, some even thought communism was better than capitalism. Of course, that was in an AP World History class. I'm sure it would be a whole different story in a lower level class.

Saw this drunken dude with his sober friend trying to make their way to the buses at a train station 45 mins ago. First, the guy managed to somehow slip out of his shoes, forcing his friend to help him put them on (not something that looked to be particularly easy with him being wasted). Then, the guy thought that he was Superman and walked with his fist held high in the air.

His friend had to drag him forcefully off to their bus. It looked pretty hilarious.

A friend of mine created and added me to a group on facebook called "Anti-Illuminati" in my area, described as: "Resistance of the Illuminati and their New World Order (NWO) in Lehigh Valley, PA". While at first I found this annoying, looking through the page, I've found it enjoyable. For instance:
Obama and Pope meet to propose the NWO on the same die Michael Jackson died. Wonder why they did that? Well how many of you noticed this versus the media flooded with the death of Michael Jackson? That's why.
It's only been active a few hours and already masonic lodges and various youtube videos have been posted. All him. Will be an interesting page to watch develop. Yes, he's serious.

Fun fact!

From 1978 to 1989 buyinig, selling or using skateboards was ILLEGAL in Norway. Police would actually fine you and confiscate your skateboard if you got caught. Kids would build illegal skateparks in the woods.

Together with when we banned Life of Brian i think this is one of this nations greatest accomplishments.

Jersey Shore. It is a pop culture hit on MTV that involved stupid Italian-American partiers that were tan, women with excessively large boobs, and muscular guys going to bars, getting in fights, getting drunk, having sex, and spending the next morning puking in the toilet.

I fixed a colossal cockup in my scheduling that could potentially have postponed graduation by a year and would have deprived me of an awesome once-in-a-blue-moon class with an awesome professor.

Of course, class was then canceled due to snow, I spent four hours shooting the breeze with a friend and eating (got entirely too full), and then wandered home in the snow while wearing just a hoodie. So the day balanced itself out fairly well.

We won at Mock Trial by over 30 points because the team we went against, Farmington was beyond incompetant.
In this round I was the expert witness for the defense and my cross examination was more of me leading the lawyer around because she was so bad.
When she stated that I am being paid to testify here in court I retorted, "So are you". Then when she stated that winning in this trial will burnish my reputation (she should have learned the lesson), I responded with "Your reputation as a prosecutor will also be burnished if you win".

We might get hit by a Cyclone n Sunday. It will be only a cat 1 so it won't be too strong, but it will be the first I have seen one hit this far south and this far west. Unfortunately for us it seems it will be more of a wind event than a rain event for us, since we need plenty of rain.

The program translates the text back and forth using Google Translate, then displays the final English translation.

Joecoolyo
Jan 30, 2011, 07:10 PM
Doubt it, this system is moving towards the northeast, and will be to the south of Chicago once it hits us (which is why we're getting so much snow). So, by the time it reaches North Carolina's longitude, it should be waaay up north by New York, or even Maine.

At least that's regarding the snowfall system, another system coming out of the northwest is supposed to bring a large coldsnap with it, and might reach you. Not totally sure about that one though, all I know is that's whats going to make it a blizzard where I live, since its arrival coincides with the arrival of the snow system, creating a very tight corridor between them, in which the winds will kick up crazily.

I didn't get a snow day today; I got a one hour delay, which did absolutely nothing, since I had a study hall first period. During my first class, the heat was off, so I was freezing my ass off, but I figured I'd get to go home later like all the public schools. They finally managed to fix the heat just before they would have announced cancellation, and my optimism resulted in me neglecting to study my vocabulary for Latin.
Edit: Damnit.
