Snakes on a Plane

August 31, 2006 2 comments

I just finished watching Snakes on a Plane. It had both Samuel L. Jackson and Snakes on a Plane as promised, so that’s an instant 10/10 right there ūüėČ

***Minor spoilers below***

Seriously though, the main reason that movie was unrealistic wasn’t the amount of snakes, but rather the amount of *WEAPONS* on that plane, although that might have been intended. Let’s see: they find a gun, a harpoon, a mini-flamethrower, a hunting knife and lots of sporks. Sporks are deadly things, apparently. But, yeah, I don’t know about you guys, but since 11/9 -01 (no, I won’t use the American system for dates), airport security is a tiny bit more tight than it was in this movie, especially considering the amount of VIPs on that plane ;o

But, I’ve had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane now, so I’m going to sleep.

Perspectives

August 30, 2006 2 comments

So when I was talking on TeamSpeak last Sunday, I claimed “I wouldn’t know what to write in a blog, I barely ever have anything interesting to write about”. To this, KashmirZ replied: “Oh, yes you have…” I guess he was right, I think it’s more about what kind of blog you’re using. Because it gave you one automatically, I initially used the “MSN Spaces” thing which turned out to be a steaming pile of shit that 1) could barely be customised to my liking, 2) only worked with IE6 and 3) could only be viewed by people who had .Net passports. Myspace is also obviously totally out of the question. A blog like this, however, can be made into whatever you want.

So, today I was in my “Etik- och livsfr√•gor” course, which roughly translates into “Ethics and existentialism”. A course I guess would be perfect for me if there was more variation in the different views of people in the classroom. In my class, however, egoistic humanism seems to the general worldview. This is of course a very probable scenario when in a group of 17-18 year olds in Sweden, but this poses a problem for me as I might not have the most politically correct of opinions, at least not in this country. Basically I tried to elaborate on whatever questions we discussed where my views were similar to those of the others. On the others, as the observer I am, I sat still and listened to what the others said and bet on exactly what words they were going to say. It all sounds so programmed when you think about it.

For example, we started with three questions: 1) How can you control your own life, 2) How can you as an individual influence other people’s lives, and 3) How can you get the most out of your life? I think we all agreed on the first two questions, but on the third, while I thought “Well, this is one of the most debated question in the history of mankind”, the others were like “Well, let’s see, which ones are there?” and gives a list of some things all the popular psychologists say, and then says “It’s really the same as the first question, if you control your life and do everything you want in life, you’ll be happy”. I didn’t even feel like saying anything against that, I should’ve expected it. It would’ve been much better if there was like a pissed off Muslim in my class, then you don’t have to work so hard on weighing your words when presenting the Christian viewpoint, because the Muslims will always be the bad guys on those arguments anyways, looking from the agnostics’ points of views.

So yeah, now I have 6,5 hours of break, as I will have every Wednesday for the next 3 months. At least one blog update per week, that is… Now I’m waiting for my Mario Kart DS and my USB WiFi Connector that I ordered of eBay, and then I hope I’ll be able to get WiFi access somehow in school, then I’ll never complain about too long breaks again, ever. Until then, I’m going to try to beat the 10th and (maybe) last level of Space Invaders Revolutions, which is harder than you might think ;/

School, Nintendo DS and random conspiracy theory

August 28, 2006 2 comments

Today I arrived at school and I was met by big signs poiting out our classes’ pigeon holes said “NEW SCHEDULES!” So I go and check the pigeon hole and there they were. As if my schedule wasn’t bad enough before, now they’ve managed to remove my possibility of sleeping in more than one hour every single day. I also do not get out of school early a single day, but rather I have at¬†least one¬†hole of at least 2 hours 45 hours every day. It’s like they say down, looked at my study plan and asked themselves: “How can we make life as bad as possible for this guy without adding more lessons? Because we’re not letting him off this easy!”

My Schedule

Anyways, this might not be as annoying as it would be before, as I’ve recently¬†received a Nintendo DS from KashmirZ as an early birthday present (much <3). I ordered Mario Kart DS yesterday on eBay, which I should be getting within 4-8 days. Wi-Fi¬†ftw is all I can say.¬†

Everyone should get these things – the possibilities of how you can expand these things are almost endless.¬†What I¬†want next is a DS version of TeamSpeak, I don’t think it could get much cooler than that.¬†If they’d just¬†make Wi-Fi more¬†common,¬†phones would be useless, although I’m sure all the major phone companies have sent several death threats to Sony and Nintendo not to develop this any further. I mean, when you think about it it’s really sad how many discoveries probably won’t be put to any use because it’s not currently¬†good for business. I bet a lot of the “omfg scientist have recently discovered a way to blah blargh blaaah” stuff was actually discovered 30 years ago, but the companies behind them had just been working on a way to make profit from it and to replace their own technology which would be outdated with this new discovery.

So anyways, that’s probably my first real blog post right there, although written in two breaks of about 10-20 minutes. GG. This is pretty fun.

Blind Guardian – And Then There Was Silence

August 28, 2006 Leave a comment

Here is my favourite Blind Guardian song, a 14 minute long epic masterpiece about the Trojan War. The YouTube streaming “videos” below contain the song and the cover art for the ATTWS single. The high quality version is 50 MB, and the low quality version is 9 MB, so choose depending on your connection. While listening, you can extend the blog entry to see the lyrics.

Enjoy!

omg hrug has a serious blog?

August 27, 2006 1 comment

So yeah, apparently you’re expected to have a blog these days, and as long as it’s not in any way affiliated with MySpace I guess it’s pretty cool. I won’t be updating this all that often, but it’s cool to have a non-dependant place to post things on your mind in.

So yeah, I’ll be posting stuff like song lyrics, cool videos, links, thoughts etc here shortly.
