No at all. If you told me that you thought that alien life was visiting earth, and the government was hiding it, though, I might think that.

I'd be shocked if we were alone in the universe.

Tax return season: the time of year where I debate buying a phone.

If I did it'd probably be a Oneplus 3T. Or a Nexus 5x, as Plasma Mobile seems to target that. I'd like to play around with that.

But phones feel... disposable to me. So I probably won't grab one. Google voice for another year it seems.

A DSLR looks enticing, though.

Edit:

I wanted to add a bit more, but had to leave for work. If I do get a cell phone, it'll be because I'm caving to outside social pressure. I don't really want one, but I feel like I'm supposed to have one. People look at me way weirder when I tell them that I don't have a cell plan than they do when I say I don't normally drive. "But what if something happens?" "Don't you think you're being rude to the people who need to contact you?" "Money that tight, eh?" Ect.

I'm on facebook as a sort of compromise with this right now. It sits there, and people can IM me on it in a way that's I guess more convenient for them, although I don't see how since I respond to it on the same time frame as I do with SMS..

I tacked it on because of the overlap between the ghosts people and the UFOs people, but you're right. Stepping back, I don't think anyone I know would assert a cover-up of ghosts. My bias on that subject is showing.

MY CHECKLIST OF PEOPLE I('VE) KNOW(N)

- The government is spying on you (pre-PRISM) ( I stopped counting ) [VALIDATED]

- Western Civilization is going to fall because of the EuroZone crisis ( 2x )

- Obama is a Muslim / Not a citizen ( 1x )

- TUPAC IS ALIVE ( 1x )

- Vaccines cause autism ( 5x )

- The military did secret testing of chemical weapons on its troops during Operation Desert Storm ( 2x )

- ... which lead to the test subjects having children with autism ( 2x )

- Aliens are real ( 2x )

- Ghosts are real ( 3x )

... I'm sure a couple of these also believe 9/11 was an inside job.

I also had a friend go down to Dallas last year and spend a day checking out the historical sights to be seen from the J.F.K. assassination. His trip report when he got back?

    Some people still think there was a second gunman. Some people think it was the FBI, or the CIA, or the Cubans. Fuck the grass knoll. Fuck the FBI. Fuck the second gunman. You wanna know why? Because some times shit just happens. People want reasons for things. But you know what? Some times shit just fucking happens.

Oh my god, yes. The place we just moved to is the first apartment I've lived in that was built above code.

So quiet, and cheaper to heat than the old place, despite being 2x the size.

Oh yeah.

Not only was it completely flat, it also cooked down and became almost syrupy. Cloyingly sweet, and overly spiced with cloves to try and hide it.

I suspect it would have made a decent ham glaze, though.

My sister tried making a mulled Dr Pepper drink one winter. It's pretty far up there in the list of things that I intend to never put into my mouth again.

I figure the time zone issue is also why we've never gotten a group Civ or EU4 game going.

It'd have to be play-by-mail, which sounds glacial.

Although, I'm slowly realizing that if my face-to-face group is going to keep playing together, we're probably going to have to go that route. One of the core members is now working 10-13 hour days 6 days a week...

I lead a pretty tame life. Or try to. I can been pretty abrasive on the clock...

My first impressions of The Easter Rising are: this is not the history for me. I'll give it a few more pages before I set it onto the "returns" conveyor, though. Apparently the Biographies are back. They used to be in their own section, but now they've been dispersed through out the collection as Dewey intended.

Edit: On into the returns she goes! I cannot stand the tone the authors used.

We're guessing that it is late 60's or early 70's. We found some forum posts online that told us where the date codes would be, but all that is left is some goop where the stickers once were.

It does seem to be really well cared for, though. The wall cord could stand to be replaced, but aside from that and the missing needle, seems to work. You can produce sound if you turn it on and run your finger along where the needle should be.

If Hubski ever gets together and does an online campaign, we have to play one of MK's games.

I used to be with Devac in the Org-Mode camp, but that's slowly become non-viable as I use the computer less and less for that sort of thing.

Now I've got a B5 spiral notebook that I use for my tasks, and a calendar if it effects both of us.
