Well I think people have the right to be vulnerable to whatever terrible diseases they want. I don’t agree kids should have no choice but….at least the outbreak would only effect the ones that aren’t vaccinated…..





Son of A Failed Dynasty

17 10 2007

I am in so much more a depression now, this place is a thousand times more depressing. I just completely realized the true extent of the mistakes of my forebears and how I ended up in such a terrible place for someone like me.

 The place we live could possibly have been my families, and in time mine, empire. My great great gandma had thousands of acres of land, and even better used it. She used it to grow pine trees, so just think of it as our little piece of the lumber trade. However, the next generations pissed it all down the drain slowly but surely. There used to be a lot of money and poof its gone.

 Finally it got to my grandfather and great uncle. There wasn’t any money but the land was their’s. through there own stumbling blindness they eventually had to sell it all. Now the wife of my mother’s ex husband grandfather owns it all and even has a mini mall in our town on what should be OUR LAND! And I’m sure the grandfather isn’t like them but his kids are WHITE TRASH REDNECK #$%$^@#$!!!!

I know why my aunt gets so angry about this. THAT SHOULD BE OUR LAND, OUR EMPIRE, OUR WEALTH!

Now we inherit next to nothing, I inherit nothing. I have to if I ever have any hope of rising above these peasants start all over from square one. Problems? The fact that America doesnt have as much oppurtunity as it did. The only way it could ever see fruitation would be in the lifetime of my descendants.

Fuck that, I want to live as I want! I got to bridge the gap by doing it in a very shoot the moondiscover the cure for cancer fashion.

For now, I am the son of a failed dynasty the same as the paupers, even more pathetic because I have the smarts to rise above the muddy swamps of middle class.





Rise!

I am going to come back as an undead monstrosity after i die muwahahaha!





Get Off Your Asses (Kids)

11 10 2007

Despite the fact that not many people read this hunk of junk and even more despite the fact that the people this is aimed at definatly won’t read it, maybe some parent will stop by and get something out of it.

 Now, I am a child of the silver age of video gaming. The 16-bit era I believe. I grew up with video games. However, I also believe it or not was a very adventurous outside person. I used to ride my bike for hours on trails, played in the back yard, played in the woods, made forts, made bows and arrows, played with stick swords you name it. It is only after middle school that I really lost all sense and desire to be outside playing with friends (all the friends i did get to play with are now unavalible due to various reasons some being that they are high school teenagers)

Anyways what I’m saying is that today’s kids tend to get addicted to things like bad food and electronic stuff. You’ve seen the kids that look completely brainwashed by tv and games. (Oh yeah I grew up on good cartoons, not today’s crap)

Alright parents this is obviously bad. I mean seriously. You have to be responsible about food, you don’t want an obese (non-genetics related, no offense my naturally fat friends) child. Or do you you sick witch in a gingerbread house?

 Kids, get off your asses boy or girl. Go play for crying out loud! Be kids for lifes sake! Because trust me, when those hormones hit and you get to high school things change….all the things that used to be cool become retarded sadly, its the cycle of life. Go get into trouble once in awhile, explore that haunted house whatever! When you get like me and riding that bike ends earlier and earlier everyday til you do it no more and couldn’t if you tried…..you’ll understand.

 I also believe its bad to leave kids addicted to crap and not live normal kid lives. I seriously think that can lead to psychopathic behaivor and you know I highly support videogames. I game because I am a gamer, it is who I was even when I played like a kid.

My sisters are addicted to myspace and rap music, geez I want to vomit. Get a life please. the way you can tell the difference between someone who is lets just say a gamer and a retard is that a gamers heart and soul live to game, not because they have no life and can’t do anything else. Where do I spend my internet time? On sites like newgrounds.com the best site ever for flash animation or deviantart.com the best art community on the net. Obviously that is different than myspace and rap music.

 So parents, get your kids off their asses, especially if they are lucky enough to live in a nice community…..like I regret never having. I only had a semi-community gosh dammit which makes it even worse when you reach the high school stage, not to mention the people in general (rednecks and rap just think about it)

(Note: i dont hate rap, just almost all of it. my favorite rap type things include Fort Minor and Dangermouse)





Sonata Artica

9 10 2007

first i’d like to say i got 2 philosophic posts coming your way.

 Sonata Artica may be low on popularity as far as music in america goes but you could expect that since the band is from europe. This is one of my favorite bands ever and i just want to send some of you guys that way so you can enjoy their awesomeness. their music ranges from hardcore, to soft, melancholy, uplifting, epic, and much more.

Favorite songs:

1. Full Moon (uplifting)

2. Dream Thieves (hardcore, always good when you’re mad)

3. Wolf and Raven (epic)

4. Black Sheep (epic)

5. Thor the Thundergod (major epic)

6. Talulah (melancholy, what i feel latly)

there you have it, get to bootlegging those songs off of limewire or something.





Total War

6 10 2007

So what have i done all Saturday?

I bought the expansion pack to medieval total war 2 about a week ago. It lets you play 4 different campaigns based on different historical events, one of them being the early exploration of america.

now obviously i had to choose to be the Apache indians. The aztecs, mayans, tarascans, and thlaxacans are all similar and reside in the south. the apache (me) are the northernmost with the chichimec (similar to apaches like the 4 above are similar) are below us. The apaches can use guns and horses after defeating an army using that technology, unlike the 4 southern mesoamericans. (chichimec can too)

In the beginning i mostly just established trade routes with other nations and conquered rebel settlements making my empire grow. however a lot of things happened during this time. New Spain allied with the tarascans and thlazacans and pretty much wiped out the aztecs. then they all turned on each other with the tarascans ultimatly becoming the most powerful and new spain getting completely wiped out. (i think i took a few lands from the chichimec then we agreed to a ceasefire)

Spreading both east, west, and southwards (mostly against rebels, the whole northern coast of the gulf of mexico to florida were rebel lands, mostly rebel tribes who didnt want to become part of my great nation) New France decided to go south from where they entered the new world and low and behold i had those settlements, so they could either travel through my lands or take my settlements now. They choose to fight us….big mistake.

We wiped out New France before they could even get one settlement. thus we began to train horse and gun units.

Now i had crippled the chichimecs western lands taking them all along the coast of the pacific ocean until i found tarascan land. oh lord they had grown big and powerful. This is the beginning of the Apache-Tarascan War.

Our most devout priest of the great spirit called a warpath upon Octolan, the closest tarascan settlement. (did i mention everyone followed the sun god, even the chichimec?) 4 great war chiefs including the apache chiefs son went on the warpath and eventually conquered octolan after much bloodshed and many great victories (being outnumbered about 2 to 1)

As soon as this happened, one chief died from unknown reasons, one was assasinated, and so i had to send my best assassin to defend this area, the tarascans had a great amount of skilled assassins and the best way to fight this was with one of my own.

Astook the chiefs son patrolled the land leaving 215 men behind in octolan. the tarascans would not be defeated so easily, they assaulted the city wanting to quickly take it back before we could get a foothold. Astook came in behind them but sadly Ysika the Great Warrior and his 215 men were already defeated.

Astook adopted a new son, however he was quickly assassinated. Fearing for his life Astook went to the next city over, ahuatilin and made this the new apache capital. Soon the peasents of octolan revolted and allowed the tarascans to take over without a fight. the tarascans exterminated the population as soon as they arrived.

An uneasy peace settled as we finally conquered the chichimecs, and all the rebel tribes along the northern gulf of mexico coast and florida.

Another warpath was called and many chiefs answered, we took back octolan easily and then colotan to the north and another small village to the south. (after the tarascans failed to take our capital and decided to give up taking back octolan)

Now we must take the last rebel tribe, the yamacraw in northern florida, and we must advance upon the tarascan lands from the what once were chichimec lands.

(note, the mayans destroyed New England Colonies in this time, and the thlaxacans have two settlements in tarascan lands because the tarascans made them a slave empire)





Knowledge

3 10 2007

Has anyone ever wondered about the average level of knowledge? What I mean basically comes down to how advanced a civilization is. For example only a few centuries ago we believed frogs came from mud. Things like that have obviously changed. Instead of regions being isolated due to geography or whatever reason the entire world is connected via communication and travel. How exactly is all this knowledge gathered and preserved so that you can go beyond it?

That may seem like a simple answer at first, you could easily imagine schools, colleges, ect. However consider the human postition. The average person does not store anything beyond grade school possibly middle school level knowledge. Some keep enough high school knowledge stored but never move beyond that point. Then there are the college folk. The thing about college is that often you end up specializing in one field. Very few people have college level knowledge in more than a few fields down pat.

So human civilization as a collective seems to support itself by having certain things specialized in so you always have experts on that field. This is good and bad as you could easily imagine, good in that you can focus and improve upon the specification, bad in that you aren’t spreading out the knowledge.

What all that nonsense I just said means in normal terms is like say we want to upgrade Earth to a more advanced stage. You would need to pass along some knowledge to be learned at lower levels so that you could accomodate the new. Or basically New-> lowest college-> high school, ect so that college becomes high school level knowledge.

 The sad fact that most people could care less about school around the middle school level means we have a gap and it will be a long time before Earth can fully advance on a large scale.

 I have no idea what all I just said means please elaborate for me and make me stop using big words!
