The STC "Stream of Consciousness" Thread!!

For those who're unacquainted with what "Stream of Consciousness" is, it's basically just the random thoughts that pop into your head.

You know those random thoughts you might write up on Facebook or Twitter, as they occur to you? That's Stream of Consciousness occurring.

Stream of Consciousness, according to Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stream_of_ … chology%29

So I thought I'd make a place where we can discharge all our random thoughts here on STC...

Oh yeah, I'll start off:

Man, why do I even bother keeping other albums in my collection, when all I ever listen to is Ar-Tonelico 2??

Re: The STC "Stream of Consciousness" Thread!!

Here's my latest "tweet" (I feel funny saying "tweet" like it's part of my regular vocabulary so I'm putting quotes around it for added comfort)..

Cranberry juice is underrated.

Seriously, it is.  Water is boring, coffee and tea have too much caffeine, all soda is crap, and many other juices taste too sweet.  Cranberry juice ftw.

My low point for the day: during dessert, the ring came off my pudding can.  I was hoping someone would come in with a song and dance, and exclaim, "Take my pen knife, my good man."

I'm a woman, though, so I guess it wasn't happening.

I had a dream last night which involved getting eaten head-first by a goat. Sadly, this is not an abnormal dream for me.

I've found I have an affinity for wheat berries. Which is amusing considering how much of my last decade has been spent rebelling against the hippie rabbit food diet of my childhood.

Wait, what?
Pudding comes in CANS!?
With RINGS!?

I have never EVER seen something like that.
Every place I've ever been to puts pudding in plastic cups with an easy to tear off aluminum cap...

Haha, twatted.  Yes, Stephen Colbert also mentioned that he had "twatted" on air with Meredith Viera... and her reaction was excellent... haha.

Also, damn price gouging and insufficient supply vs. demand.  HBC Olympic Canada 2010 scarves are what i want and no stores in Edmonton have them.  I could pay horribly overcharged prices on eBay, but $150 for a scarf is just too much.  I demand more scarves!! =p

I am a total zombie-bitch for the Winter Olympics. Started in 2002 (when I was adjusting to college), continued in 2006 (deep in the midst of the job hunt) and here again in 2010 (comtemplating where to buy a condo). At this rate, in 2014, I'll be watching while planning my takeover of North America and in 2018, during my takeover of the entire world. The spirit of evolution in action.

Oh yeah...And I've developed a total crush on Katherine Ruetter on the US short track women's team. big_smile And Julia Mancuso pwns Lindsay Vonn (but they're both great!)

With as much typing as we do these days, do you even remember how to write free-hand...?

I've tried writing free-hand only just recently, and honestly, I can see that my penmanship has degraded...

Re: The STC "Stream of Consciousness" Thread!!

The Scumfiddler was looking for Old Man Quimbly, a man who eats skull fragments he finds in regurgitated aardvark remains. Never mind what eats the aardvarks; just hope it doesn't smell you. Now this Old Man Quimbly, he's quite the old fartenheimer, so his teeth are gone. One might wonder how he eats skull fragments from regurgitated aardvark remains. I will tell you - I have seen it. He carries around a small metal bowl and a hammer, which he uses to pulverize the skull fragments. He then collects arthropods, preferably hirsute spiders, and squeezes the contents of their opisthosomas into the bowl. Every so carefully, as to not spill the putrid contents, he slowly lifts the bowl to his toothless maw and slurps the gloopy-gloop!

I think the notation of formal logic is weird. I wonder how we can contstruct mathematical proofs without mathematical logic. But  we can't have unlimited axioms and definitions, maybe it's alright. I use Word 2007 for mathematics, is there perhaps a better option out there?

Good Lord! I couldn't imagine typing up anything mathematical in other than LaTeX!
Well worth learning...

I propose the building of a gas chamber of sorts for drama queens. No poison or radiation or anything like that...Just cram 'em all into a room and let the hot air that makes up their constant whining and gossip just suffocate them.

Re: The STC "Stream of Consciousness" Thread!!

Just remember, when someone says, "It's a bit much," cut out the space between "bit" and "much," then cut out the "mu" in "much," and then you'll get what they're really trying to say...

I disagree. Cranberry juice tastes like balls, with it's bitter aftertaste and weird residue. For fruit juices, go grape or go home.

Re: The STC "Stream of Consciousness" Thread!!

Here's something I've always wondered, and this has nothing to do with you Idolores, you just reminded me of it.  Whenever a person says that something "tastes like balls" does that person actually know what balls taste like or are they just assuming they taste bad?  What if balls actually have a pleasant flavor?  Let's assume this person has tasted some balls in the past and the so-called bad tasting balls they had were in the minority, and the majority of other balls out there are actually quite delicious.  For example, if you get soggy, burnt, over salted, dark brown fries at McDonald's the next time you visit, would you then start saying that bad-tasting things "taste like McDonald's fries" -- heck no, cause you're aware that you just got a bad batch and usually they're damn tasty.  Even if you've taste many many balls, who knows, maybe you're just very unlucky and haven't found the right ones yet.  Should you keep trying or just give up on your quest and come to the conclusion that every ball in the world tastes awful?  Think about that, and then when you think you're done thinking, think again.

Oh and another thing.. riddle me this.. if all cranberry juice really does taste like balls, do all balls taste like cranberry juice?

Rotting flesh from spineless humans slowly oozed down the side of the giant megagrunt. It collects them, the humans. First, it removes the spinal column and digs the internal organs out with a specialized claw. Sometimes the claw becomes lodged in the ribs and it cracks them during withdrawal. It is a noise that Simon fears the most. Some friend of his, some past lover, someone known....never an unknown...has perished in a decidedly gruesome manner.
Space exploration, he mused, is not for humans. Not yet. Not when you land on a planet and a child feeds you to his pet!

T(b)=T(c), or taste of balls equals taste of cranberry juice.

Dracula Battle doesn't have too much punch. Or anything else. I won't buy it. Unless I find it for $5.

Hegel's "Phenomenology of Mind" is supposed to be on sale, nationwide, in every bookstore in the coutry. I visited 6 bookstores today, and none of them had a single copy of the Phenomenology. It was a translated, hardcover edition. I don't want to read it. But I want people to see it on my bookshelf together with my Plato books and comment: "You read Hegel and Plato?"

I do read Plato. But I won't read Hegel. Or perhaps I will.

Edit für avatar!: I think Word 2007 uses something like LaTeX. It's easy to make formulas at least. I'll try LeX now. Or is there a better option? Thanks.

I think you are perfectly qualified to answer this question on your own.

Re: The STC "Stream of Consciousness" Thread!!

In many parts of the world (Asia, Europe, the Middle East), people eat testicles. I don't know how healthy they are, but they are supposed to be tasty, and in some cultures considered an aphrodisiac. They are often called animelles or lamb fries (the latter referring to sheep testicles). Yes, you can get these in the USA too. I personally think one reason why most Americans never hear of such things is because most Americans can barely say the word "penis" without reverting to the mentality of a 13 year old and giggling like a prepubescent teenager. Historically speaking, when people didn't eat mass-produced, highly processed shit (ie most of the American meat industry) people would actually consume nearly the entire animal. Parts such as cow tongue,  cow brain, etc were considered delicacy. Anyway...

For Grassie: I don't use Word or any such commercial program. I strictly use LaTeX, which is free, and awesome smile If you're doing lots of equations, I still think it's the best choice you have out there.

Jesus Christ, I hate when people pronounce Japanese words wrong. My buddy asked me if I'd like to go out for sake, but said it like "Sack-ee".

But more than that, I hate feeling like a wap for correcting them, so I let it slide most of the time. -____-;
