The days since my last post have been days of drama where my net connection is concerned. And it turns out I may not be done tinkering, as apparently my router is cramping my speed. The problem with computers is that there seems to be no interest in making them work properly. In a sane world, if it was found that a router needed to be set differently to allow for maximum efficiency with one computer and multiple computers connected, respectively, it would have a device installed in it to switch settings when you put more computers onto it.
But then again, you don't need to look very far to see that we do not live in a sane world. And while one may, in passing, meet a sane person in it, or at least one who is sane in the ways that matter, it seems that if not every single person who makes decisions that effect our lives, then at least most, are off their rockers, out of their skulls, out to lunch, batshit insane, touched in the head, fucked 8 ways from Sunday, squikked, zany, balmy, flipped, gone bananas, lost their marbles, bonkers, cracked, flipped, loco, unhinged, screwy, nuts, or one ::item:: short of a ::group of or including said item::
Shayna has blogged on a telling example of this in her guest post over at Sar's.
A ban on sex toys. Either an attempt by a patriarchal society to enact a monopoly on genital stimulation or another salvo fired in the war on wanking. Either way, it sucks. I'm going to be dropping in on the brawl throughout its progression, so I'm going to leave my covering of the topic at that.
A friend of mine told me that I was born to be gay or bi. That I exhibit the qualities of every non-heterosexual person he's known. Wasn't quite sure what to say to that. I mean, I'm a theater person, so that's always taken as evidence right off the back, and doubly so given that there are quite a few musicals I like.
No class Friday. Think I'm going to take my guitar out to the park and sit by the hills and play. That's the one thing I regret about opting for an electric, but it's no great setback.
Oh right. Check this strip out. It's goddamned hilarious.
The people who did the actual study would have you believe that gamers are more likely to smoke pot, but in reality it said that more of them were polled to have "permissive attitudes" towards alcohol and marijuana. Moreover, they revealed no numbers, save for the number of people polled: 100. So to recap, College students like to play games, drink, and smoke weed. No shit.
Oh wait. Hold that. College students like to play games and are allright with people drinking and smoking weed. Someone was paid to find this out. Like, money.
(refers back to the list) batshit fucking loco. Ok, that wasn't there, but still. People out there? Could you try sucking a little less? Just a bit? Or hell, go nuts, but just keep it off of me, will ya?
