From Here to Eternity

Sorry I've been MIA, peeps. I went on vacation all last week, and then before that, my computer wasn't working, and I don't like going to the computer lab, so I was basically computer-less. Oh well. Anyway, I've been tracking my page stats thanks to Google Analytics, and I found out that I've had readers from Australia, Canada, and some states and stuff. Anyway, thanks for reading, and don't troll, please post a comment, at least to say hey, I totally want to hear from you. So, I have a couple of things to talk about in this post and here are the main ones:

1) We have to do something about the world, ya'll. I heard that the Earth is totally getting it's junk messed up, and we need to start making changes, or at least buffing up for when everything turns into Waterworld. Or Mad Max. Either way, we're not buff enough as a people. Meanwhile a few of my friends and I were brainstorming last night about how to save the world:
a) Shoot all the nuclear waste into the sun
b) Futurama-style move the Earth a few centimeters away from the sun
c) Use a giant Oreck vacuum to get all the CO2 out of the atmosphere
d) plant more trees
e) Outlaw all gas using vehicles

Desperate times call for desperate measures. We've totally gotta start making moves. In the meantime, trains don't use coal anymore do they?

2) As a continuation of the last point, kinda, I'm going to start a website with a message board and we can have topics like global climate change, and endangered animal species and stuff, and people can propose solutions. Like, I don't think there's a one website that does that. Then we'll discuss what's viable and send the ideas to NASA. And the President or something. Seriously, we've got to get moving on this, and it'll be the ideas that seem the most far fetched that will help us get this show on the road. We need big solutions, like yesterday.

3) On the starting a website vein, I'm going to be starting another website called A Geek's Guide to the City. And it's going to have all kinds of cities from America and all over the world, and it's going to have the geeky things that you can do in that city. So, wherever you are you can find a comic book shop, a gaming store, and LAN party place, a scifi theater, whatever you need to be geeky in a place that you're moving to, or just visiting. I got the idea when I was looking for a website like that and couldn't find one.

4) I was watching this clip from the Maury Povich show about ghosts. That middle clip scared the crap out of me and really looked real. I've never really been skeptical about ghosts. I mean, if you believe that God came to Earth in the form of man, died on a cross, and then was resurrected three days later you can probably believe some crazy stuff. But still, I've never discounted the fact that ghosts might exist. I've never seen one either, so I guess I've always just been on the fence about the whole thing. I feel like if I saw something that could convince me I would turn away from it just because I 'don't believe in ghosts'. But I also have a healthy skepticism that helps me not to just believe every single ghost story that I hear. When I was in China, a tour guide asked me if I believed in ghosts. I said no at first, but then thinking about it a moment longer, I changed my answer to 'under the right circumstances'. While a person that was traveling with me scoffed at my gullibility, I had to wonder. People discount so many things just because we've been brought up to believe their impossible or ridiculous. Ghosts for instance, or psychics, or alien beings. Whenever someone starts discussing them, we write them off as a crackpot. But taking a look at something that's out of the ordinary takes us out of our comfort zones, and makes us think about an issue from a different perspective, and that's always a good thing. I would never want to discount something just because I've been told by someone else that it's ridiculous. I take everything case by case, and make my own decisions based on what I know to be true, and if we all did that, maybe things would be different.

I live in the sweetest spot, regarding global warming. Norway is going to be like Spain! Freaking great! We had like one snowfall this winter and it was all gone whithin the week. If the consept of rain would slide out of the 'Book of Stuff that still Exist' Norway will be renamed Utopia!
And how can you not love Kaylee?! She is the woman to replace all women! She is allways happy and she eats strawberry's just to be sexy!
I could change it if you want... But then again none of my friends really look like ALF either...
Did you notis that I'm linking to you now?
