    I've let the house get pretty nasty - I only cleaned because people were supposed to be coming over. My boyfriend does do his chores and is actually a SERIOUS neat-nik (I'm actually not super anal, I have a pile for my school work, a pile for my gaming equipment that I use on a regular basis (controllers/headsets/etc), etc, but that's all in our room away from the "kids".

    It's not my property and it's not school owned either. We all four rent it. They couldn't get me kicked out, it's not school property or anything like that. That was actually my boyfriend's idea to say to them. *shrug*

    > “I feel really uncomfortable about sex now”.

    You need to talk with her and find out EXACTLY what this (above) comment means. It sounds like you've tried... I guess it really comes down to how important you feel a healthy sex life is to a relationship. I don't see any reason to be angry about it.. but I think you do deserve an genuine honest answer.. and if she can't give you one, then the ball is in your court of what to do next.

    EDIT:.. I think its rare for a female to just "stop being interested in sex" (it happens, but other explanations are much more likely). There's either something legitimate she's uncomfortable with (which may not be fixable, or she may never tell you)... OR... she's chosen to stop having sex with YOU for some reason.

    I would be surprised if life wasn't at least *common*, given the propensity for complex organic compounds to form. I'm less sure about intelligence, as I'm not convinced that it isn't an evolutionary dead end (we're coming close to wiping each other out, and we've only been 'intelligent' for maybe 50,000 years or so - a geological blink of an eye.)

    As for E.T's visiting Earth, I'm pretty sceptical. While there's nothing scientifically wrong with the idea, there is little real evidence, and the proponents seem to cling to the belief with a strength out of proportion to the amount of available evidence. This is a fairly good benchmark for a pseudoscientific belief.

    >There is no proof one way or the other, and the world would be better if everyone kept that open mind.

    There's no proof that a small (say, 10lb) nickle-iron meteorite won't hit you right on the head and kill you the next time you go outside... yet I'd wager that you choose to not have an "open mind" about that possibility and just go outside without a helmet.

    The problem with your position is the assumption that just because a large number of people believe the same extraordinarily unlikely thing , that the unlikely thing must be given any more consideration as possible truth than any of the other **infinite number** of nigh-impossible conjectures that one could dream up. We don't believe delusional paranoids when they say Irishmen are creeping into their bedrooms from under the floorboards and sexually abusing them. We don't believe schizophrenics when they say a "bad cat" told them to set fire to their bed. Likewise, there is no reason to give the proof-lacking arguments of a religionist any greater credence.

    I also dispute your intimation that religion is a harmless, happy amusement and that what's causing unhappiness is atheists' intolerance of it. Surely you don't need yet another recounting of the awful things done in the name of religious belief. Religion *shouldn't* be tolerated.

    Sour grapes from a failed company who can't compete. Maybe if Red Hat had spent more time obtaining a high-quality, innovative and industry-recognized portfolio and actually made money by licensing their technologies to others in the industry, they wouldn't be in this mess in the first place. They should know better than to punish others who actually do innovate by taking away their reason to do so. But then playing dirty is the only way Linux clings on to its pathetic 1% market share. These guys are dinosaurs in a digital age.

    but they ARE getting traffic -- in the form of views. like i said, your comments bum me out. i was just having some fun and wanted to share a cute video i'd never seen before and you are making this sound like i am stealing or something. by embedding, i am getting traffic, the video is getting watched and everyone is happy. except you. if you like the site so much, then you should share the site instead of trying to make me look bad for sharing something that the site made available to the public, and made freely embed-able so people like me can share with our readers. and with you. it isn't like i stole the code or anything: the site provided it freely, and i thought it was cute and wanted to share. that's all.

    and as i pointed out, two sites are benefitting by embedding the video.

    **"I see what you did there."** That's a good point. Thanks. I've been trying to point out that Intrinsic Value Theory is good for getting people angry about their problems, but not much help when you try to actually price anything. Value is subjective and situational. Labor is often involved in getting something into a marketable form, but there is no correllation between the amount of labor (if any) and the value of the product. Given that, how can I claim that a middleman exploited me by extracting value from my labor when he found a better market for my product than I did? How is that different than getting mad at my neighbor for making a better chair?

    My allegory of the craft show was a counter to your comment about the unemployed graduates. They worked really a hard too. But, either the value of what they learned did not have the market they anticipated (like my iron chair) or they are not doing a good job marketing their skills (like me at the craft show instead of an art auction). Their situation is a serious problem for them, but it's not evil wrought upon the Earth by the conspiracies of vile boogeymen.

    **"wages have hardly risen"** You keep thinking about increasing wealth in terms of printing more money. Sure, that canceles itself out. I've been talking about wealth in terms of higher standard of living. That magnifies itself as more people get on board

    For example: I thought I made it quite clear that I was surrounded by farmers that were "middle-income or rich" as in "above median income". Everyone's standard of living has gone up since the bad-old-days of hand picking weeds from the fields. Farmers' standard of living has gone up more than most. Lives are longer and healthier. Jobs are still hard, but they are easier than tilling fields with a hoe. We have houses and cars and supermarkets and internets. The little numbers on the scarce paper notes have grown faster than the standard of living, true. But, everyone is still doing better in real terms. I don't see the problem you keep referring too happening in practice.

    I claim that rich folk want poor folk to get rich --real, inflation adjusted rich-- because a larger rich demographic makes a larger market for higher margin products. I cite as an example that you can't sell HDTVs in Ugandan farming villages. But, if the farming villagers gathered and formed cities of skilled professionals then everyone could have HDTVs and air conditioning and health care and the occasional vacation in Italy --including the few farmers that stayed behind and built big ranch houses. Everyone would be better off --especially the evil capitalist manufacturing HDTVs. That's why the gluttonous bastard can't wait for more and more poor people to get rich. It happened in America. It's slowly starting to happen in Africa. Try to be happy for them.

    You can claim that the evil capitalist is so short-sighted that he can only see today's profits. Or, you can claim that he is so far-sighted that he refuses to raise the wages of his employees out of fear of the day when he can no longer make his product at a profit because there is no one left on Earth to outsource to at a low enough real wage to make that possible. But, please pick one straw man or the other. I can't hold both of your claims in my head at the same time.

    Can you do me a favor? Try on Subjective Value Theory for a brief time and come up with a nice straw man argument to complement my iron chair. It's fun!

    BTW: I hope I'm not too enraging with all of this. :) I'm having a great time. I miss the political/philosophical debates of my school days.

    I have lived in large cities for the better part of a decade, but moved home to a smaller town recently. I was coming out of a gas station close to my house when an middle aged black man who looked like he had been living in a dumpster walked up to me and said excuse me in a very low tone. Without even thinking about it I told him I didn't have any change, to which he said, "fuck you man, I just wanted directions to Lowe's".

    I lived in a slummy part of Vegas for awhile before moving back home, so having homeless folks asking for change was a daily thing and something you don't even think about anymore. I felt like such an ass afterwards, unless he was going to ask for change and got pissed that I blew him off like that.

    I'm thinking one of three things:

    Dr. Strangelove

    A blind man going out on halloween as a clown

    The Reddit Alien

    I'm having trouble deciding. The Reddit Alien and Dr. Strangelove are the most appealing at first, but I'm afraid that a lot of people won't get Dr. Strangelove.

    The Reddit Alien would also take a lot of work and I don't know if I'll have the time.

    I went as a plain blind man a few years ago and I managed to convince a few people (I don't know how). I figure it'll be even more convincing if I go as a blind man going as a clown.

    The over-arching question, of course, is why I'd invest time in creating a costume, as I don't really have anything to do with it.

    Yes, it is homogeneous and extremely regular, kind of like a crystal. Force is just an interaction between two particles. A normal moving particle has intrinsic properties that determine its speed and direction of motion. As it moves, it interacts with the lattice particles and these are jettisoned are a result. The electric and magenetic fields of a moving electron are the result of huge numbers of lattice particles moving away at the speed of light from their original locations in the lattice.

    Shockfactor, you are awesome!

    I found the answer I was looking for with your search link from Ubuntu.

    For anyone who wants to know for reference this is the fix for this problem:

    A workaround is to apply the '-noxfixes' option to the x11vnc command line.

    Example:

    sudo x11vnc -safer -localhost -once -nopw -noxfixes -auth /var/lib/gdm/:0.Xauth -display :0

    1) Put KillInitClients=true (not false) in gdm.conf-custom

    2) Put the x11vnc start line in BOTH /etc/gdm/Init/Default and /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default

    3) Restart everything

    That fixes it.

    I think it would be terrifying if you just kept the school exactly how the kids see it every day, but add some really unsettling aspects to it. Then when they come to school on the following day, the school will have a creepy quality.

    Being in my old schools really late at night was a bit....unsettling. Walking around in the dark, in dead silence in your old schools was always a bit creepy You should just plant a seed in their fertile little imaginations, and let them scare the shit out of themselves....

    To sum up, here's what I would recommend:

    * no fancy decorations, just keep it looking normal, but maybe with some very subtle,spooky changes to mess with their heads

    * no music, just silence

    * have them go through it alone, or with at most 1 or 2 other people

    *as they go through, ramp up the creepy factor, make it more and more unsettling, so the tension is always increasing. Then, have them enter an area where they think it's over (say a well lit room or something with some people in it. They'll breathe a sigh of relief, then unveil the piece de resistance (whatever that may be, I'm sure you have some ideas). Pants-shitting will ensue.

    EDIT: of course, you should incorporate some of the other (really good) ideas posted here, but if you just kept the hallways how they normally look, dim the lights, and add some of the suggestions here, it should go swimmingly.
