As many of you are no doubt aware, there have been very few updates to the page as a whole recently. I’d like to take this time to apologise to the three of you that are regular readers and give a brief explanation as to the reasons why.
In the forefront of my excuses is the fact that I’m getting married in… three days *HOLY CRAP!!!!!* and I find that my time is spent thinking about what happens next rather than what part of the site needs updating.
Secondly, and perhaps the more valid reason (at least from a technical standpoint), is the fact that I am currently away from home and my ISP has inanely decided to limit FTP access to the IP’s attached to their server only. So remote updates are currently impossible and my ISP, in standard big business fashion, remains mute to my help requests on this subject.
So, until things change, you’ll only get the occasional blog post here and there to let you know I’m alive.
Anyways… I’m off to burn some CDs for the wedding and screw the record companies out of a few more pennies. Later
Okay… for those of you who were wondering (and yes I am sure there was at least one of you because I could hear the gerbil wheel inside your head squeaking), CH3CH2OH is the chemical formula for Ethyl Alcohol. The substance found in 90% of most alcoholic beverages. Forshame on all of you for not knowing that.
Anyways… on to other topics.
So here I am in Texas, nine days before I get married and I still have no clue as to what I’m going to say to the woman I love. My vows are seemingly impossible to write. I keep coming up against that dreaded blank wall of a writer’s block every time I try to find words that do her justice. It’s annoying me, I’ve had this block for about a month and a half now and it’s starting to get frustrating. And it’s not just with my vows, it has been pretty much anything that I’ve written (or tried to write) lately. I hope I can work my way through or around it soon…
Do you ever wonder if we’re getting dumber as we progress further down the evolutionary path?
I mean I am always in awe about the amount of things that I know nothing about, and yet feel that I should be aware of them, at least in passing. Even with my awe looming in front of me, I still hunger and thirst to learn. I get scared though when I think that I may not have the capacity to learn all I want too. That somewhere down the line due to culture, genetic drift, random genome mutation, and whatnot the limits of my mind were set and once I reach that point, *Poof* that’s it. Either I start to intentionally forget things to make room, or just don’t learn anymore.
It’s an interesting and sobering thought. We’re told that we generally only use 10% of our brains. I wonder how long it will be before we can say that we use 11% and I wonder if we will ever admit it when we start falling to use only 9%? I would hate to start having to pick and choose which things to know and which to remain ignorant of. I guess I’m just too damn greedy for knowledge for my own good. I want to know it all. Omniscience is my goal and I plan to claw my way there any way I can.
Possibly more will come later after I disect these thoughts a little further.
Today’s Random Musing was brought to you by the chemical formula CH3CH2OH (Points if you know what that is without looking it up), the Number 3 and a Great White North Pizza.
Today is Friday. I’m feeling kind of run down and lazy today so I’ve decided to pass the time by spamming you all with a few quizzes. I might decide to do some serious writing later today, but for now all you get are the quizzes.
