I Need Change

Eugh!!! im getting soo out of shape. I need to get active again but the lure of XBOX and TV is far too strong.

I havnt made a post in months and its kinda getting too me so I shall make one now.

Went to sommerset last weekend and it was pretty good. I got to see the town where Hot Fuzz was filmed and I even shopped in the summerfields that featured in the film (where the guy who says "narp" works) athough its a Co-Op now. Kinda sucks really because the co-op are complete dickheads. For instance in shepton mallet I fell victim to the infamous 'service with a scowl' experience that is often linked with the co-op. Girl behind the counter looked at me like I just slapped her in the face when I tried to buy something with my card.

I cant believe some of the stupid policies that the big supermarkets have where they refuse to sell me alcohol because someone who is underage is within my general area. If I was that serious about buying someone alcohol then i would make them stand outside. If I was older then I wouldnt be a problem. geez

Drunken ramblings

Its weird how that when I am drunk (like I am now) my behaviour towards other people is changed. Somehow me sipping Glenfiddich results in a very sociable and forthcoming person. Just thought I would share that with you.

Once again to the cinema to see a film. This one, called limitless, is a film for those who dont mind waiting for the story to develop. My girlfriend didnt seem to enjoy it that much; "i'm really bored, ", and a friend of mine was told off by a lady in the row in front who looked a lot like the person who had a go at me during a showing of 'a body of lies' (I think it was that film) last year. Maybe shes one of those people who like to complain at people for a hobby.

its a shame people like that exist... or maybe she was just generally annoyed by his constant stream of noise eminating from him trying to drink the very last drops of a slushie through a straw in a silent, movie theatre.

The house will need clearing up tomorrow, It has been tidied a little bit but there is still lots to do before the parents get back on monday.

Something new

I tried something new today. Probably wasn't the best idea but I did it anyway. since I moved my desktop from my room to the dining room (This is because my parents have gone and I dont want to be disturbed when im trying to sleep, by friends who want to facebook in the early hours of the morning) so because of this I moved my computer and all associated equipment downstairs to the dining room... Anyway, back to what I did, I turned my bass speaker all the way up; then the two normal speakers all the way up. I turned the bass on its back pressed my face up against it; put the speakers to my ears and had one of my friends put on omen, which is a song by 'the prodigy'.

My ears are still ringing but it was a good experience.

One thing about my computer is that it really doesnt like me... usually. From the moment I built it, it has been teeming with bugs and malfunctioning software (not because of my computer building skill). However, when I brought it downstairs to the dining room and set it all up, it ran like I had just built it yesterday... granted this was after I deleted some suspicious software and updated the system. but I dont think that was the only factor... perhaps I should rethink its position in my room.

It feels weird using a desktop keyboard again and not a laptop one. The keys all seem to be in the wrong place.

I found out something else over the last few days, a poor diet will leave you with monster heartburn. I dont even want to know how much gaviscon I have had to consume since yesterday. might take another dose before bed tonight.

PS. The problems with my computer were down to poor wireless signal and changing the position of the computer in my room worked... who knew!

FSM and the 2011 Census

Well its official, in the eyes of the government I am a Pastafarian. 2011 census arrived in the mail and I duely filled it out to express my religious orientation. I feel his noodly appendage in my presence even now, I believe I have made FSM happy. I hope that all the other pastafarians out there have put down their religion truthfully on their census, hopefully we can become a fully legitimate and recognised religion in this country, just like Jedi.

I dont quite understand this census, I feel it is just the government sticking its nose in to see whats happening. Its kinda creepy if you ask me... But still if it helps spread the word of the FSM then i'll take it.

It seems there are less people than i thought (who i know) that are using blogspot, its a shame really, I wanted to follow some blogs, oh well never mind.

Ill again, dont know what it is... it feels kinda like tonsilitis but I dont have any tonsils. I am taking this as a sign from his noodlyness that I am deserving of a day or two off from school. Tomorrow I shall eat some kind of pasta to show my thanks. I should be all healed up by friday so that I can enjoy the holy day properly. Might get myself some beer to drink when I get home from Sixth Form.

Technology, it’s all around us; incorporated into every aspect of out lives. I came across this subject while I was walking to school with my eyes fixated to the path in front of me, searching for the missing ear bud that goes with my earphones... I had lost it yesterday.
Thinking about how empty my walk to school was without the constant companion of music I realised just how dependant on technology we are. Take for instance the idea of all the computers in the world stopping at the same time (this can be caused by a number of events; nukes, solar flares, chuck Norris) the world would be thrown into chaos, businesses would fail, stock markets across the world would crash and no one would be able to watch TV... A grim picture to be sure. We have sold our souls to Mrs. Technology and she is a vengeful beast.
On the other hand, if the technology apocolypse doesn't happen, the future looks very advanced. What we have now is nothing, the brand new computer I am using to write this very blog is going to become very outdated quite soon, in a few years I will have to buy another one just to keep up with the software updates and latest trends. Until eventually we get to the point where we don’t need to progress any further and everything becomes fully automated.
Imagine technology like the kind you see in the matrix, you will be able to plug yourselves in and create a Utopia for yourself; worlds where you can do anything you want with no one to answer to if you do something wrong. Crime would stop in the real world because everyone would be plugged in, living in mansions with butlers and trophy wives. (although this would be in virtual reality, really you would be lying in a bath of nutrients with tubes going into your body to keep you alive).
You could be thinking at this point, if everyone is plugged in, who will look after us. Well that one is easy, the androids. Like i said before, everything will be automated. We will all live for ever. Chuck Norris will not be able to harm anyone (as far as scientists can tell, don’t put too much faith in them though, chuck has already broken the laws of physics). Tomorrows world may sound great for some people and just plain creepy for others, I myself am split between the two. But... The time will come...

I suppose most of you have heard about the problems Japan are facing at the moment, the images coming from the country are shocking to say the least. Some pictures I have seen seem to resemble the landscapes in the fallout games, which are set in a a post nuclear apocolypse world. So that isnt very good at all.

The death count seems to be in the thousands now with entire villages and their populations completely wiped out in the wake of huge 30 foot waves penetrating deep inland.

There was a lot of worry about the state of the nuclear power stations that the japanese run. 'the fear of chenobyl' was instilled in everyone the other day when the building housing one of the reactors at Fukashima exploded, worries were raised at the content of the cloud that was spreading outwards from the wreckage, luckily It seems that the reactor itself has remained intact meaning that a core meltdown at the moment is quite unlikely.

I have to say that the images coming from the countries affected are truely horrifying, the utter devistation caused is unimaginable and I genuinely feel for the people in those countries. I will be making donations to relief foundations.
