it's that time of the year when my computer doesn't auto change my time so i'm living an hour behind and it takes a whole 6 months to fix (no i will not go into settings and change it that is absurd)

i've been trying to quit/cutback on smoking cigs but it feels like my desire to do so is too mood-based for me to rlly follow through in a meaningful way. Anybody else have that trouble?

the dude is so funny on stylezeitgeist. He posts essays that end up being thousands of words of braggadocious nonsense.

today the australia bureau of statistics announced the results of the same-sex postal survey. 61.6% of people voted yes to "Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?" In every australian state, a majority voted yes. for the past weeks i have been watching people dear to me suffer so much pain and stress and anguish because of this postal survey and the burning heat that surrounds it.

there was a big party in the street next to mine. all the restaurants opened their doors. bright lights were hung from store to store and colourful chalk covered the ground. everyone was so happy. not merely happy, but joyful.

there were old people and toddlers, uni students and young professionals, people of all ethnicities and professions and backgrounds. drag queens and office workers dancing together in the streets.

it feels like a great weight has been lifted off many shoulders, at least for a day. there will be more pain and stress to come. moreover, anyone who falls outside man-woman, man-man and woman-woman was left behind in this survey. but for now, there is a tangible lightness in the air.

I hope that the people who feel angry about the results of the vote will be able to see and listen to and taken in the joy and relief that the results of the vote has brought to the people around them.

i went to a The Jesus and Mary Chain concert last night and had a very good time, enjoyed the performance w/ friends who I was glad to spend quality time with, and found myself shocked by how fond of them I am now

crypto currency is fucking insane right now. i paid $9.99 for a steam game back in 2014 in BTC (dont even remember which game) and now that amount is worht about $350

snagged some decimal amounts of btc and some ether and its absurd watching it go up and up (UNTIL IT DOESNT!). wild ride, wild ride.

would explicitly forbid anyone who isn't totally chill with the money being thrown in the trash not get in on this, especially now. dont be one of those idiots whos thrown their entire life savings into a couple bitcoins (and then have it crash down to $100 a btc again).

also read up on the tulip bubble of the 1600s

Sorry for the double post but everyone needs to read this article: Productivity is Dangerous

My personal rule is that if you aren’t quite certain that a certain action will be good for you and the world, you shouldn’t do it. Do nothing, which is likely to be pleasant and unlikely to hurt anyone. Few atrocities have been committed by people lying in bed, whereas the urge to Do Something has led to serious catastrophe. Productivity is extremely dangerous.

when your graduate department isn't unionized, so the university doesn't give a shit about paying you on time (or at all) for research/awards, and you routinely have to beg for the money you've earned...

this is me complaining

there's this guy in my lab/office group
and all he talks about is girls and how many/how easy it is for him to hook up with girls
and he annoys me to no end how he objectifies women

i'm normally not aggressively confrontational so i've been slowly trying to get him to read and think more about glaring social issues
but he doesn't read at all, he just watches sports and tv instead
i don't want to be ~that~ patronizing person, but i also feel like this is a very critical, important subject to broach to people
do you think i should just let him live his life or should i keep trying

ps. and he doesnt eat vegetables.

The only way to get through to people like him:

Start playing sports he watches and working out, become better than him at the sport.
Have honest, equal romantic relationships and make it clear you pity him for being unable to do so.
Eat vegetables like it's easy and you pity people who can't.

Then you have to wait for like 3-4 years. Eventually he'll start to see he's a fuck up.

ALT: just deck him bruh.
