Kids like toys? Who'd know...

I wanted a microscope as a child. And science books. Being a nerd since a young age xD

So, there we have it. Varying degrees of Yes and No, with a great deal of (quantum-mechanical) silliness in between.

Nothing wrong with that. When I was nine or ten, my parents got me an electronics project kit.

Speaking of trees...

NobodysHome's Story Time:

I must have been 11 or 12 when I first heard the original, "If a tree falls in the woods and there is nobody there to hear it, does it still make a sound?" question. I was 12, trained in physics, and irritatingly clueless.
Young NobodysHome: Of course it does! What a stupid question!
Questioner: But how do you know?
YNH: Because it's still going to move through the air. It's still going to cause disturbances. Sound is nothing more than compression waves traveling through a medium, and the falling tree will necessarily generate such waves.
Q: But what if nobody's there to hear it?
YNH: What? Are you trying to argue that the laws of physics go out the window just because nobody's there? So like, "When I leave my room, how do I know my stuff doesn't start levitating around because gravity stops working?" That's a pretty stupid question.
Q: But what exactly is sound?
YNH: I told you; it's compression waves through a medium. And they don't just go away because no one is there. Give me a few minutes and I can come up with an experiment where we could prove this...
The questioner sighs and gives up

Needless to say, I was not subjected to any more philosophical questions, though I took great glee in watching others suffer through things like, "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" and whatnot that were so popular in the 1970s.

I usually had the same reaction to these type of questions.

Chuck Norris is the answer. For all questions.

Sorry. The answer we were looking for is "A woodchuck would chuck all the wood if a woodchuck could chuck wood."

Wait, the judges are signalling me... They're discussing it... And...YES! The judges have decided to accept Chuck Norris as an alternate answer.

Mr. Chuck Wood has informed me that he is considering legal action, for both slander and libel in comparing him to a rodent.

The sound of one hand clapping is dependent on how hard you clap, how limp your fingers are, how floppy your wrist is, and whether or not there is someone there to hear it.

I believe I have shown quite conclusively that the answer to this question depends on which thread you are in.

Well the rodents aren't too thrilled about being compared to him either.

A class-action lawsuit with Mr. Wood and the Woodchucks as co-plaintiffs?

What universe are we talking about? This one or three over? I can't answer about this one, but in the one three over I might be able to.

It turns out, it's a feat and a jumping off point to argue about jumping over a ten foot pit in dim light while carrying a spoon with an egg in your off hand with a buckler strapped to your arm ("But which hand is the off hand!!!!").

Current game list.

- GURPS campaign based off Demons' Souls, dark fantasy in a world fading in the midst of eerie events. I'll be playing a druid of sorts, a devotee of a deity linked to the elements.

- Warhammer 40K Black Crusade campaign online with some friends, a ragtag bunch of heretics finding their way in the harsh worlds of the setting. Mine is a well-intentioned extremist who'd rather flip the bird at both the Emperor and the forces of Chaos.

- Online D&D 3.5e campaign, magitek setting with many nations looking to find new grounds on unexplored fronts or building up their forces. Our group is a bunch of mercenaries with a few mechs of our own, and I just happen to be the medic for one of two teams, a Cleric of a local philosophy of light.

Still busy with school and writing the first draft of a visual novel script on the side! I should try and wrap up the Carrion Crown recap before I forget everything that I didn't write down back then...

Hey, TL, CY. Kileanna lives in Spain. It's close to midnight there.

OK, John, this one's just for you:

As you may recall, here at Global Megacorporation, they implemented two-factor sign-in to access e-mail, so, amusingly enough, if you try to access your e-mail remotely, you get a screen that says, "Please enter the code you just received in e-mail."

Well, I've found something even more delightful about our IT department: We use "Single Sign-On" for all of our applications (sign in once, access all of them).

And the e-mail and file servers are the only ones protected by two-factor authentication.

Yes. I can first sign on to the support page, and then have no trouble transferring over to e-mail, because "Single Sign-On".

Leave it to Global Megacorporation to implement two-factor authentication on only SOME of its applications in a single sign-on environment.

Too hilarious!

Oh, my! This is just too funny. Why have a two-factor authentication that can be circumvented by Single Sign-on? Let me guess. ... The short answer would be ... Corporate Bureaucratic Ineptitude. :D

See, ASU has two-factor authentication, but it has been rolled out to all single sign-on sites. Still has yet to be implemented on the university workstations however.

I'm a bit stuck on making a character for Ironfang Invasion. I was going to make a cleric so Pea Bear and the General wouldn't have to worry about preparing healing spells, but they made fun of me.

So they can heal themselves.

I think I'm definitely making an elf. Beyond that I'm still not sure.

At the time I posted, just got home from my eleven-hour shift and was dead tired. I figured that you'd wake up around then.
