Roleplayers Wanted!
I knew I was in the wrong profession! HA HA

And I rant again (in the comments), this time on A's discussion of the numbers & codes.

more crazy code stuff, been looking for something like this:

Pack date: This is the date the item was packed, most-used on canned and boxed goods. It is usually in the form of an encrypted code not easy to decipher. It may be coded by month (M), day (D), and year (Y), such as YYMMDD or MMDDYY. Or it may be coded using Julian (JJJ) numbers, where January 1 would be 001 and December 31 would be 365. In even more convoluted coding, letters A through M (omitting the letter I) are often assigned to the months, with A being January and M being December, plus a numeric day, either preceded or followed by the numeric year.

some wacky Revelations 13 interpretations

"He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666" (Rev. 13:16-18).

isn't is all so easy to come up with conspiracies and find patterns?

anyways some of it helps understand them reggae songs..

Those Chinese, so inventive. Wonder if those things stil taste good?

A: chimes in on an old school edit (vs comment): yeaaahh.. so Momofuku a Christopher Columbus. What do you think of a mail order biz that will send you the dope instant noodle bowls and translated instructions? :0=______ shopping hint: the more packets, the better. I think the new shit is a separated out MSG pack.. mmmm. MSG...

Anyone ever read any Chronicles of Amber books by Roger Zelazny? Just bought the biggie... Interesting 'fantasy / sci-fi crossover'. (On pg 220 of 1264 pages!)

Please comment w/your favorite scifi reads of all time.

Google 2084 beta



oh yeah they own blogger now. still kind of boggles the mind they have capacity to retain all that search data about everyone. On a Sci-Fi connection, read a (so-so) book a while back where the protaganist was fighting a Microsoftish evil corp trying to foist spyware on everone. Doh. I'll post the title if I find it.

You should always chew your food well before swallowing. It helps if the food is dead, too. (not for the queasy).

Happy Halloween!

this farktoon post had me rolling...


1st - My new Bkly pad needs TV/internet. Looking at Comcast. Anyone have recommendations? They've got this deal: $100/mo for internet + HBO + DVR.

2nd - Some stock successes: Despite Andrew's amazing market insight, he warned me against the 'little co's'. ESLR has gone from $1.30 to 9.37 (today) and will keep going up, I believe. I got in Evergreen Solar with a teeny investment and some more later. They're a silicon chip maker w/a radical new tech, 'string ribbon' solar cells. Keep your eyes on 'em!
Also I don't know HOW DYMTF (a pinksheet, ie not on an official exchange) will do, but their stock is at .55 cents/share. Dynamotive is a co that has a 'pyrolysis' technique for making biodiesel from organic waste materials. I have $500 in that stock. Exciting? Nah, but I hope they get to $8+/share. Keeping my fingers crossed on that long shot!

I'm following the logic of, if you had $10k in Microsoft when they started, you'd have TONS of $$$ just 10 yrs later. So I'm keeping my initial stock investments small, but kinda focussed on areas (alt fuels) that I hope will boom someday.

I'm trying GREEN investments, aim is to hold for 10 yrs.

(And I'd really like to buy some property, but can only afford Oregon or No Cal in the boonies. Looked at New Mexico already, too.)

Anyone care to talk about what they do investment-wise?
Maybe make a comment so we can make this 'thread-like'?
