A fucking Flash update closed my browser and I lost all my tabs and now I’m compelled to open things in new tabs and leave them there.
I have cigarettes and it feels like Friday.
And 110% broke.
My pen! I’ve got my pen!
Holy crap this video is hilarious.
“Shave all the hair off the scrotal skin from the top base part of the penis and down. This is not easy, so take your time, and be thorough.”

I still wish Fox Mulder was guiding me through this.
You know the video your doctor sent over about vasectomies is old when it looks like this. Obviously copied over from a VHS tape.
Also, how cool would it be to have Fox Mulder explain the procedure? Like in his office. And the poster behind him could say, “I Don’t Want to Conceive.”
THIS IS NOT PROPER USAGE OF THE SUBJECT LINE
There’s like three people at my company that do this EVERY TIME.
I’m sad I never got to stalk thee

We all love the Internet. It’s the greatest thing ever.
It’s also the worst. It’s criminally easy to procrastinate now that the Internet is not only super-fast and always-on, but accessible from tiny devices forever within arms reach. Hell, I’m guilty of it right now.
Anywho, I just decided it was finally time to read Pride and Prejudice. Today was the day.
Clickety clackety I’m on Amazon. I didn’t even have to type the full address, autocomplete took over after I typed only A and M.
Clickety I run a search for the book. Again, all I had to type was “Pride” and Amazon guessed the rest.
Oh look, the Kindle version is $0.00. ZERO DOLLARS. I click my mouse once and a friggin’ book is already on it’s way to my laptop and my e-reader. For free.
I know shit like this is hardly new and exciting, but man. A free book delivered instantly. Let’s just take a moment.
I typed five characters and clicked my mouse a total of three times (once for a new browser tab) and I have a new book to read. And not just any book, a classic. Pretty amazing.
This is the Internet people dreamed about. Not goatse and kitten videos (although those are pretty great too) but the instantaneous sharing of human knowledge, for cheap. I need to make an effort to use the Internet for more noble purposes. Right now the “Productive/Creative” slice of my Internet Usage piechart is just a sliver.
I just realized I have over 2,800 posts. That would seem like a lot if this wasn’t Tumblr.
For fun, the first three people that put questions in my Ask will get honest, decent-length answers. Anon or not, I don’t care. I just never get asked anything on here. Ever. So, ask?
*EDIT* Bah, I always forget this stupid ask thing is weird.
Kurtz: I’d rather let my cat go to town on my eye. At least I know where my cat has been, and toxoplasmosis and/or a glass eye is preferable to whatever weirdass shit hobo might give me.
Eskati: I’ve been an atheist since high school, although the flavor has changed considerably since then. I’m too old and tired to be militant about it anymore. Although Catholics are pretty hot. If I had to go Christian I’d definitely go Catholic.
George R. R. Martin everyone.
I’d say this is accurate. Guess which type I am! Thinking I had to have the blueprint first stopped me dead for so many years before David Lynch taught me to just run with my ideas. I owe him big.
