i just love how inventive the japanese are. (for related information, go here. specifically, read about "" now i lay my hand down to sleep, aka "the stranger.")

are you drunk? (remarkably, i'm not)

ok, guys. angel's trumpet tea sounds like real bad news (Link from Popdex.) definitely stay away from the garden shears.

i put on my robe and wizard hat

ah. memes. mostly worthless and inexplicable. bits and pieces of random jibber-jabber that float around like spermatazoa in the acidic environment of the female reproductive tract.

(seriously, sometimes people go too far with the analogy of memes with genes. it gives a new meaning to the term "mindfuck.")

take "i put on my robe and wizard hat" for example (originally found on littleyellowdifferent.) the transcripts of some poor bored bastard lying in wait in the irc chat rooms, ambushing people who want to cyber. it just won't die. first, someone starts making t-shirts. then, what is more bizarre is that someone starts attributing the lines to themself, changing the chat handle, but not much else.

mutation at its finest.

why am i suddenly seized by the idea that the first artificial intelligence will be a horny bastard who likes to play dungeon and dragons?

verb. intransitive. derived from cybersex. the act of chatting with someone (commonly on irc but gaining ground with various instant messenger services) for the purpose of mental sexual stimulation, and often involving simultaneous masturbation in remote locales. the information age descendant of phone sex (q.v.)

a couple of seriously bizarre images. from the Hall of Technical Documentation Weirdness. ok, so I've had about 3/4 of a pitcher of sangria. a lot of things are remarkably amusing at this time.

asphyxiation while masturbating is not recommended

remove metal rod from glans portion before using dildo

and finally, the gospel of supply side jesus.

as i had a cigarette (sorry, r!) i started thinking about strange things. like, what if embryonic development of multicellular organisms proceeded by sexual reproduction, i.e., with a dependency on meiosis? so that, like normal, two haploid gametes would join together to form a zygote, but instead of dividing by mitosis, they would spawn more haploid units (with crossing over and everything) that would themselves join together and spawn more haploid units. i mean, i suppose this is just an inefficient way of mitosis, because, while you'd get some admixture of genetic material, each cell would still have the same material, just rearranged. what would be really wild is if it didn't just involve two gametes. if it was an entire colony of gametes, if the multicellular organism was made up of a mosaic of haploid and diploid units. kind of like a nation based primarily on the family unit. ok, i'm weird.

dear god. just from caffeine and protonix, i was cracking up for at least five minutes. i think this would cause some serious damage if you were on heavier drugs. this is the kind of thing that makes users of pcp jump out of 20-story buildings. who the hell thinks of these things? "badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger badger mushroom mushroom." consider yourself warned.

now i realize what spicy cajun pringles taste like. they taste like those flavor packets in ramen. or accent, also known as monosodium glutamate. maybe that's why i got explosive diarrhea the last time i had some of these.

ah, the ideas spawned by the simpsons. excellent. some guy has decided to do a taste test of different beers mixed with skittles. now where can i find that flaming homer recipe?

so MDMA doesn't cause parkinsonian symptoms after all. "Ecstasy Study Botched, Retracted" still, it does seem that with chronic use, it causes some neurotoxicity. the thing is, i don't think all the targets of serotonergic neurons have been mapped yet, so we can't be entirely sure what does happen.

this showed up on blogdex. an article in the new scientist giving a little primer on the renal physiology of ethanol, and suggests just exactly how much water you need to drink in order to prevent a hangover.

some people swear by pedialyte, but it tastes like chalk. if you did an electrolyte analysis, gatorade is close enough anyway, and it tastes a lot better. but the only known cure for a hangover is 2L of normal saline or lactated ringer in your veins. (at least, this is how doctors survive a heavy night of drinking. so i've been told.)
