    Damnit. A weird flying bug was in my room flying around and creeping me out. I finally smashed it... and when I smashed it it glowed.

    I just murdered a firefly and feel awful.

    Also now I know what fireflies look like up close so future ones are safe.

    I find myself jonesing for Doom. Or what I think Doom will be. This weekend I played the first half of the Battlefield 4 campaign, and had to quit in a state of great frustration. I tried a shotgun that I liked, and found it near impossible to use in most situations. Levels were populated with enemies a couple of cities away, poking my head out immediately took me to the red, and I could only regenerate my health by hiding behind cover. They gave me a bunch of mostly independent squad mates, who I could point at any set of enemies and they would more less take care of them. Why was I even there?

    This weekend I shall play The Old Blood.

    Doom will have no cover. No chest-high walls. No regenerating health. Videos makes it clear to me that if you stop moving in Doom, you take damage.

    I've never heard of an adjunct being tenured, that's interesting. Regardless, it's kind of an aside to the point of the article which was no tenure = fear of offending a student = watering down your class so that no one can find anything offensive in it.

    To be fair, then there's the flipside of "lol got tenure, fuck all'y'all Idgaf"

    This really isn't the problem that conservatives enjoy making it out to be.

    -edit-

    see also: voter fraud

    Well, you're not talking to a conservative, you're talking to me

    So I don't know what to tell you?

    Maybe try backing it up with something?

    Show that it is a problem, professors getting tenure and then slacking off? I haven't seen it myself. The vast majority of my university professors have been tenured and they are a really incredible group of people. I love my department.

    What's your experience?

    I've had quite a few adjunct profs that I really adored. I also had a couple who were just complete fuck-ups - missed classes, couldn't keep to their schedules, came up with BS time-wasting activities for students instead of things that they'd actually have to work at. Those fuckups are gone now, replaced with people who presumably are less allergic to actually doing some goddamn teaching.

    I've also had some tenured profs that I loved, and some that were fuckups. I had an economics prof that was assigned as my advisor as well, and he spent about the first 4 weeks of his classes telling you all about his personal worldview - nothing really about economics, just old affluent white guy shit that in his wisdom he felt like was reaaally worth our time (one of these is how miracles are totally a thing so you should probably consider jesus). Then he'd cram in all the econ assignments and tests into the last half of the semester, giving us very little time or support to learn the material. Only really good students could pass his class, which he would then pat himself on the back about because oh his passing students sure do know their stuff, that makes him a great teacher. I loathed him with a passion.

    Him and all of the other shitty tenured teachers I knew are still there, still being shitty teachers.

    So, like, yeah, I get that there's a legit fear of offending arbitrary or ignorant students and getting let go for it. But frankly I'd prefer an environment where being really offensive or just a bad teacher has penalties, and tenure can and does veer way too far in the other direction. I've known too many profs who think they're challenging their students when they're really just being fucking assholes to accept blindly the claims of an anonymous adjunct.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    Also, Far Cry 4 is everything I wanted out of a Far Cry 4 and I'm having fun with it, but there I was this moment that made me want to stab a dude. First of all, fuck flying enemies, they are assholes and everyone knows it. This eagle was hunting for my head, and I was ready. I was gonna nail the stupid bastard with a bow so I just waited for the swoop. I pulled the string when I saw it get ready; locked in on it when it was descending, but I wasn't letting the arrow fly yet. This thing deserved an arrow in the eye from 1 foot away. When it got within about 3 yards of me, my dude went into an automatic "cover-your-face" animation before the eagle hit me. Fuck you, game, I had this. I was ready, and you ruined it.

    Goldeneye 007's controls were fine considering the levels were flat as pancakes. You rarely had to look up and down except maybe in multiplayer. Playing 007 with dual analog controls these days might make the game too easy - Perfect Dark on XBLA was definitely easier, Joanna Dark's crosshair whipping about the screen all willy nilly hitting everything she was aiming at.

    Another date, another lovely young woman! This is great because I like spending time with lovely people, and not great because I don't think I can simultaneously date this many people for very long.

    second date successfully scheduled for friday with lady from yest, yus, gonna get dope food and see mad max again which she not seen
    and thus the test for if she enjoys it or not to prove if she is cool or not i guess...

    woman for first date tomorrow responded, but she forgot her phone at home all day
    which then meant she apparently got her mother worried she was dead or something who then asked her to go visit, so, date cancelled
    but this is bad, because... basically there are only 3 weeknights between now and july 13 when i am free and in nyc, since i am traveling so much - she said we will def hang out when i am back, but i worry that the almost 3.5 weeks till then is unfortunate. oh well. maybe i can think of things to converse about via text. probably not.. i dunno what to converse about via text with people i have not met, i don't wanna ask a bunch of questions. so hopefully she will still want to meet up by then

    It was a fucking mistake. Plain and simple.

    OSX El Capitan does not have this problem, and neither do the developer previews of 10.10.4 - mDNSResponder is back in its place, thank god.

    I am playing Far Cry 4 right now too, and I have to say, I find it HILARIOUS how completely freaked out all humans are by eagles. Like, one shows up and people with guns are like "OH SHIT, EAGLE! WATCH OUT FOR ITS TALONS" and randomly shooting in the air. Meanwhile, civilians with no guns basically just scream their heads off and run around wildly.

    I mean, it is inarguably dumb how aggressive the eagles are, but seriously guys, there's a house right there, just go inside for a second.

    Meanwhile, they are alarmed but calmer when being attacked by rhinos, which are 1000 times more dangerous. Not to mention shouting stuff like "Watch out for its horn!".

    Last night I had this idea that I was gonna take down a rhino with my bow. The plan was to hit in the face, dodge its charge, repeat. This is how it worked out.

    I would even reccommend just installing the dev preview of el Capitan now, since it is pretty stable, but Apple has 100% blocked Java 6 SE from running on it, and I am kind of surprised how many big huge programs (cyber duck, mine craft) still rely on that.
