rings

If you live in, around, or even nearby, or hell. Just want to show up...

PLEASE respond to this entry. ;)

So like this weekend, in Indy, the biggest star wars convention ever is going on. Wonder why..hrm. ;)

But even beyond all that fan geekery, I must ask this.

Advance tickets are on sale. Right now. In fact rave has already sold out one 1201 showing.

My dilemma is not this. It is: How many people want to go? :)

It's a Wednesday showing (may 18th), 1201 a.m. Also, to be fair to my I have to work leanings, it would be easier to go that day later, though if enough people want to do it at 1201 (oh the geekery!) I can take the day off work. ;)

Anyways. Um. Yarm!

P.S. Will travel if necessary. ;)

What, you want content?

I'm not sure if you'll get any right now. This is merely just an interim post of cleaning.

Although there is a note for my gaming group. I'll be there if you'll have me. :) What time is good? It'll just be me, Bri's off visiting her man. Apparently the flowers he sent her for her birthday were so good she had to have him right now. Enough of all that. I said no content, which means I'm not allowed? I do have this to say, and unless I like you, I won't explain: "If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad. If it makes you happy then why the hell are you so sad?"

==Zero, Charles Seife== (anything enclosed in () is my own little comment. the rest are quotes.)

Thermodynamics is worse than a casino; you can't win, no matter how much you work at it. You can't even break even.

...Statistical mechanics - the theory of wiggles...

This is the law (Stefan-Boltzmann eq. that ties "wiggles of molecules to wiggles of light") that physicist used - along with a passage in the book of Isaiah - to determine that heaven is more than 500 degrees Kelvin.

Ice cubes don't wipe out civilizations with bursts of gamma rays. (re: 'Ultraviolet Catastrophe', a byproduct of assuming light is a pure wave. In figuring out this little snafu, we had a lil quantum revolution!)

Particles are constantly winking in and out of existence like tiny Cheshire cats.

(To Counter Casmir's force, a force exerted by 'nothing', yet another byproduct of quantum mechanics, requires force = 1/30,000 the slice of ant!)

(projective geometry. neat!)

(In Leibniz’s scheme, 0 is void, 1 is god, and I is the Holy Spirit? :)

http://www.livejournal.com/users/evan/803373.html → I used this link to explain why I like computer science to someone. Quite frankly, of all my friends, I think only lakos may get as much amusement from it as I do, but I could be wrong. Let me know. I mean, come on. Paper rock scissors gone geek.

Okay, I now I said I would have no content, but this post started hours ago. So it's small content...

I'd like to be called gorgeous. I don't know what the difference between that and cute and beautiful and attractive may be, but...it sound good. Gorgeous. I man not be a godling, or whatever, but damnit.

More on the above later, the ABSOLUTELY AMAZING DINNER I had, and maybe, just maybe, I'll rant some more about 'godlings'.
