Watching some contemporary commercial and movies. Seeing earbuds, smartphones attached to peoples' arms, neon clothing, and tablets etc. gave me futureshock. Even movies set present day are starting to feel like sci-fi!

    I'm only 18 and I feel this way! I guess I'm just more tech conscious?

    I feel this way. I remember getting annoyed at someone answering the phone while I was using the internet. Being amazed at a nokia cell phone with an antenna that played snake on a green/black screen. I remember playing those Win95 games. Tech has come so far if you showed someone from the '90s a smartphone they wouldn't even imagine it coming from the 2000s, they'd think it's far out there future tech.

    I was only eight years old when the iPhone was released, so yeah, that's the only thing I can really remember being "amazed" by, the introduction of the touchscreen.

Feelin' good: my college professor just told me that, even if Mother Meki was written just above mediocrely, it could easily be a bestseller and classic.

    Is Mother Meki your book? Or am I missing something here?

If you were to have any mental illness/disorder, which one would you'd rather have?

    ^ Not bad if you are willing to sacrifice some aspects of your mind - like self-monitoring during social interactions.

    What social interactions? I know no social interactions I have done in the past week. Save college.

    Maybe something that wouldn't leave me in a state so aware of my illness that I'd feel driven to end my life. Yeah, that sounds about right. TBH, all mental disorders are not very desirable and some really scare the shit out of me, but if my requirement was met, I'd at least keep on living. Would that be a good thing for the people around me? - Somehow, I doubt it

    Haven't you guys ever heard of synaethesia?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia
    I've done whole bunches of self-hypnosis, and, for the first time, I've simulated the experience of this truly fascinating condition. I knew it was possible since people have said that you can, indeed, learn how to "taste colors" and whatnot (and admittedly, I first though "WTF?!) but I've done it. I've finally replicated synaesthesia by fooling my neurons, if on...

    Texas bbq is the world's best hands down. You still have to look around for good bbq though. Beef bbq with toast and sweet tea. Man I miss Texas now. Thanks for mentioning bbq

Think I realized why I lost interest in Christianity. I stepped back and realized that it was little more than a facet of European culture that managed to globalize itself and that any religion would do the same if it also said "Spread the word". And once I saw it as being a culture thing, I stopped taking "End Times" and "Illuminati" stuff so seriously. Couple it with the "Pale Blue Dot" and that was it.

Grand Theft Auto causes violence! No seriously, a man was mugged and stabbed for a copy. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/grand-theft-auto-v-sale-england-early-buyer-mugged-copy-game-article-1.1458533

    GTA V.

    IGN just gave the damn thing a 10/10. And it sports a 98% on Metacritic. And speculators are expecting it to sell 25 million copies in six months.

Got in a little bit of a tiff with a Christian relative. In the plans of one of my later Mother Meki books, the story goes that the lead character visits a simulation in 1968 American south and tells a conservative to his face that the world is a Simulation and that she could bring Jesus back with a thought and just barely stops herself from doing it when she's dared to by said conservative. That's a big no-no because... well... it's a big no-no! Apparently, 'having contr...

    Nice! xD

    My computer has around 4.5 years. I am planning in buying a new one in 2014. Just waiting how things develop until there. You know, the success of the new consoles, Oculus Rift and the PC parts prices.

    From 512MB ram and 33 GB of hard drive space to 8GB/1.7TB. All for about $500.
    If I really wanted to splurge, I could've gotten a $1,500 computer with 32GB RAM and 5TB HD but I figured "well, in 8 years, it's going to be the same pretty much. I'll be buying a computer with 8PB of RAM and 120PB of HD for about $600 at that time so why bother?"
