And so we go around again
I hope this new year everybody is full of love, happiness, and positivity. Shit’s going to break and twist and hurt, too, but that’s so that when good things happen we have some basis for comparison. Take every challenge and ignore all the bullshit. This is the year you kick ass. This is the year you fuck shit up in a good way. This is the year you exorcise every demon, obliterate...

This is my new favorite thing ever.
Ron Paul is an openly racist homophobe →
Voting for him condones his bigotry.
FlyerMe! (my latest project) →
This is a little app I rushed together. You can create flyers with their own unique URLs and QR Codes with ease. Not done yet: PDF generation (for printing), rich text controls (though you can use keyboard shortcuts), and the little ads that will pay for this. Tell me what you think! If it’s slow, let me know - I can put it on a better server.

sociosage: When I saw my friend over the holidays, I couldn’t believe my eyes. He had lost so much weight and looked so different. He was always a heavy guy. But somehow he had managed to shed the pounds. When I asked him how he did it, he told me it was because of his consistency. Consistently working out…
People learning Perl! Read this! →
A functional definition of map in Perl. Should demonstrate some advanced scoping and subroutine syntax. Additionally, showcases good functional style.
Absolutely crazy Christmas lights out in Driftwood, TX. Drove by slowly to capture it.
Midnight Mt Bonnell Monday Thursday!
Weird Wednesday kind of sucks all alone.
YOU have the power to veto law →
Well, you can if you are on a jury. Every citizen should know about this right.

Obviously, not all cops are like this. Except the ones who are.

Didn't graduate :(
Prescribing myself a healthy dose of Midnight Mt Bonnell Monday. After all, alliteration and altitude answer and assuage anxieties.
This guy made pizza for Kim Jong-Il →
Google “let it snow” and be delighted.
I may not have graduated after all. Psyche … ?
Rick Perry "retires" in order to leech off pension... →
Updated my little post on logic. Should be a lot more accessible and easy to read. Hopefully this is because my understanding has grown.
NDAA won't be vetoed by Obama →
I officially support nobody running for President.
Let me show you this
First, some background. Skip to “WTF?” if you want the point. This is a concise restatement of a paper by Drs Gelfond and Lifschitz. It’s an exercise in my own understanding. Also, the notation is made up for this post but it is consistent. Background Let P be a set of logic rules of the form A :- b1, b2, ..., bn, -c1, -c2, ... -cn. A, b1..bn are called atoms and...
Who knew autoepistemic logic could be so fun?

I’m a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva.
Music lets me fly despite having no wings.
A lot of people hate highschool math →
My blog post yesterday was a slightly edited version of a post I wrote on a programming/math/science forum. A few people (publicly and privately) have told me that this vindicates their own struggles in an inflexible system and are interested in any research I can point them to. I’m so happy to help!
The Salvation Army sucks, apparently →
If you are against homophobia and misogyny, and trust this link, don’t give to the Salvation Army.
Inexact string searching is so simple when you put it this way.
Why do students hate math?
This was a leading question on an article I read today. Below is my answer. Humble brag: I was declared “gifted” in every area except mathematics throughout school; I switched schools once and retook the test leading to some kind of broad-er exposure to the process. The tests to determine mathematical giftedness were overwhelmingly masturbatory exercises in symbol manipulation and...
To not do anything is to split an infinitive.
