I'm back into World of Warcraft for the time being.  I'm on Area 52 Horde side if anyone wants to say hi.  (Go ahead, flame me all you want for playing WoW.  It keeps me out of trouble until I can move to NH, because otherwise I'd most likely be in jail because there is absolutely nothing to do here in Rochester NY.  Not to mention the guild I'm in is a bunch of cool, crazy fucks)

Really thinking about checking out Minecraft too.

It would depend on how your country does long distance, out of the country calls.  But in general you would dial:

00-1-800-259-9231
or
00-1-603-435-1105

Information taken from http://www.countrycodes.com/search_usa.php?t=250&f=28 and I cannot verify accuracy

I'm not sure what time the show would be for you in Bolivia, but the show airs 7PM - 10PM EST.  You can find out what time it is where the show is being recorded at http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_US-NH.aspx

General / Re: Gold.

I have some silver, not nearly enough as I should have.  I have no gold.  I just don't see the value in gold as I do in silver.  A LOT of manufacturing uses silver, especially in tech stuff.

Gold/silver as a hedge against inflation is ok IMHO, but i'll be starting a collection of heirloom seeds, ammo, and liquor soon as I get some debts paid off.  I was thinking about putting all my money towards getting the debts paid off, but I think right now it's wiser to save and start getting stuff that can be traded or used as alternative currency.  I might pick up a few more ounces of silver, but it's not the end all be all as an alternative currency.

I would say by spending the money to appeal you're actually helping to clog the system up even more.  I think it's a worthwhile investment if it clogs up the system and keeps you out of jail.  Yes, they got their money, but it would also make them think twice about doing screwy shit again because they know you'll clog up the system with appeals.

If this passes, the depression we are in now will look like a cake walk.  A ton of stuff is made in China that Americans use everyday.  Hell most of Walmart's junk was made in China.

This can't be good.  And I agree, targeting China was the worst thing they could have done.

They're both right.

Elements of both are absolutely right.  Now the question is did they identify trends for their predictions.  Or where people in power using Orwell and Huxley as a blueprint for increasing their power.

Really good question.

Does art imitate life or does life imitate art?  I think once we know the answer to that we'll find the answer to your question.

Lately, it seems life has been imitating art.  Look at all teh Sci-Fi stuff from the 50's and 60's and then look at all the technological advancements that have been made just this decade.  Also, i'm noticing that people who watch a lot of tv drama shows tend to have more drama in their life.

It works fine now. Good show, glad they fixed it. JJ was quite good, especially if that was his first radio show.

Agreed, the last half of the show was awesome.  Some really important discussion that probably should make it out on a regular show rather than internet only.

General / Re: Police Shootings are MURDER.
« on: September 27, 2010, 11:27:09 PM »
I'm tired of hearing excuses. Police shootings are cold blooded murder.

I'm probably young and still kind of naive, but I think it's fair to be a little terrified of this rise in Gestapo like behavior.  http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2010/09/25/secrecy/index.html

I feel my life it threatened everytime I'm near a military member or police officer. (philosophically more than literally, a lot of police are old and fat)

I agree completely. Cops are brutal and rarely face the consequences of their actions. It ain't what it used to be.

Just in the past month or two there were several stories of tasering or attacking the elderly or other harmless citizens.

Will Grigg does a great job of chronicling these abuses, check here. But as you read some of these stories, be prepared to get very pissed off.

It gets to be too much at times.  I'm on the verge of purging my google reader subscriptions and just burying my head in the sand until I move to NH and can attempt to make change happen.  That's our only hope IMHO.  That or a violent uprising.  I'm more on the side of peaceful evolution.

General / Re: What do ya think of my generation?
« on: September 26, 2010, 10:16:23 PM »
I guess I am part of "Gen Y" or whatever the fuck you call it, being that I was born in 1977.

If we're going to do this collectivist thing, then here's the way I see it:

The Baby Boomers are violence-loving bigots who won't change their ways

Gen X is just feeding off the lies the Boomers fed to them, because the Boomers' parents fed them the same lies.

Gen Y is waking up, but are too dumbed down to do anything about it

Whatever the fuck the next generation is named has a slight chance of being more awake and aware of wtf is going on.

Regardless of all this collectivism shit, EVERYONE needs to wake the fuck up and realize that the "dream" is over.  It's just a nightmare that is being dragged on and on.  Re-examine your fucking priorities and figure out that tv entertainment rots your brain and is just another form of control, much the same as religion is, for the government.

Now, why can't get you get great food, cheaper than you can prepare it yourself?


Because you're paying someone to grow and prepare the food for you vs you growing and preparing it yourself.  You're paying for someone's time. It's actually more logical that having crap prepared for you IS more expensive.  I agree what MA is doing is good, and if she can practically give the stuff away while still making enough to sustain business and life, then by all means.  Sometimes it is cheaper when someone has all the items needed to grow and prepare the food, but usually in the long run it works out more expensive.

Buy some trisodium phosphate at a hardware store and add a half a teaspoon or so to each wash.

http://www.castlewholesalers.com/SAVOGRAN-10621-1Lb-TSP-Trisodium-Phosphate.html

Not sure if that's even still available, someone further down mentioned that the packages of Trisodium Phosphate are now showing that they are "phosphate free".  :(

Kind of in the same line as this, here in NY state they banned oil-based wood stain.  This means you have to use a water-based stain to keep your deck up.  Oil-based stain that lasts for a few yers vs water-based stain that needs to be done every year if not twice a year.

Parents are thinking of taking a trip to PA with me while I go get my smokes and they can get their stain lol.  I guess the good thing to get out of this is it's slowly but surely showing my family that the government sucks.  Still can't convince them to move to NH with me just to be in a state that has a shitload of less taxes than NY state, not to mention more freedom.

General / Re: Failing the driver's test.
« on: September 20, 2010, 11:29:42 PM »
I failed the first time too.  Supposedly I pulled out in front of a blue semi truck when I was making a right turn.  it was a 4 lane road, he was in the 2nd lane, i was turning into the first.  I failed to see the problem.  Evidently the guy testing me was a psychic because my driving was horrendous for about 10 years.  After the insurance bill hit $2500/year for a 2 door Hyundai Accent I chilled out :P
