This is an enlightening video that presents the state of free speech on our campuses and the shaped potential attitudes of coming generations.

Loop Findr

There’s an awesome tool called Loop Findr. It takes a video and finds the most loop-able sections that could be put into animated gifs. I’m not sure if it allows you to also make custom GIFs (haven’t figured that out yet), but it does find some interesting things.

Life Lessons

In my 31 years of existence on this earth I have learned many life lessons. At least, I’d like to think so, it’s hard to have appropriate pride in your self. Introspection just doesn’t offer as much of a metric to your ‘success’ in life.

Individualism

This view, this painting of a moral man is very beautiful. I cannot think of a more pure statement of a benevolent life than this.

Independence and Integrity

It’s important to stand up for your principles and your beliefs. It’s also important to know when to change your mind, for yourself. Whenever I’d make the more logical argument in school, often times I’d stand alone. Sometimes I’d realize I was wrong, but sometimes people just didn’t understand why I was right. I remember two particular instances.

Gratitude

My mother told me that being grateful is one of the keys to happiness. She told me this after I have expressed how grateful I am for everything in my life multiple times. That makes it sound curt, but it’s not. She helped me buy a new TV, and I’m grateful for that. She’s helped me and been there for me whenever I’ve needed her, whether I’m depressed or angry. She’s my best friend and I love her a lot. I’m grateful that I can have a mother like her.

Wealth Redistribution

It is morally obscene to regard wealth as an anonymous, tribal product and to talk about “redistributing” it.

Inherit The Earth Kickstarter!

There is a new kickstarted for an Inherit The Earth game. When I was younger and only had a Macintosh IIsi, I looked at the PC gaming magazines with envy as I saw all the advertisements for the game I wish I could play. Inherit the Earth was one of them.

We all need to remember this.

Real and Whole

A whole person is someone who has a sense of self. They exude that sense of self towards others, and rather than being transparent they become multidimensional and complex. A real person is someone who can affect his life in real ways, who can do things to change his reality.

Golden Girls Trivia!

Here’s the new Golden Girls trivia question: What other episode was the actor who played Miles? And bonus, can you name the other sitcom he was also in and told the same story as that episode?

Adult Life

When I really think about myself I don’t see an adult, I see a wish-filled daydreaming desperate scared boy stuck with an adult sexuality and an adult life.

Social Justice

I am a homosexual, and an atheist. I’m also white and male. Does that mean I have had the power and privilege to be who I am in my life, things that put me at odds with those in power? Atheists are immoral, sad, angry at God, and don’t believe in anything. Homosexuals are deviants, child molesters, and they caused AIDs. Whites are inherently racist as they occupy a cultural position of power in such a way that only they can be racist. Males have forever denigrated, objectified, enslaved, and raped the fairer sex (did I just say that?). Yet, I have done none of these things. I have nothing to apologize for in terms of my lack of color, or my genitalia. I have nothing to apologize for because I am an individual. I am not solely a homosexual, I am not solely an atheist, and it doesn’t matter if I’m white or male. I am an individual who’s approach and choices have shaped myself into a complex human creature.

I thought this was a very good expression, and something for all of us to keep in mind.

The Injustice of Social Justice

This NPR article just takes the cake. Apparently people are no longer allowed to discover new things to them without it being a Social Justice Issue. This has been a long time coming, as...

All Its Friends

The thing about this blog is that I imagined it as both a place for me to share my life, but also to share the beauty of my friend’s lives. So, in that vein, I’ll be inviting my friends to also write in this blog as well. This will include my husband Maus for now. When a different blogger posts an entry, for that single entry the sidebar’s will change. As well, it won’t post on my social media, it’ll post on their social media.

Intellectual Property

A selfish man would recognize the sources of his wealth, both from himself and others. In that recognition he will trade with the others for their contribution to his life. He will ask of them what their terms are, for without them nothing would’ve been made. Only a whimsical man would feign to act as if the ideas, the original rational thoughts of others, were his own. Materially, he would be shunned by the producers, by the selfish man for his second-handedness. His dishonesty would eventually ruin him.
