    every day I think man I'm going to go home and just pass out then I don't and stay up until about 1am then wake up at 7:30am

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant. And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.

    This tax return represents the very last tendril of my marriage being released.

    I've double checked my credit report and various other things and there's nothing left, I've exterminated all of it.

    Well, the car too... maybe I should get rid of the car

    Make. Time.

    Ha, there's loads of press being given to a new wonder material that doesn't support the growth of biofilms.

    I've just read the paper. It's a nanostructured surface that effectively has lots of little wrinkles filled with silicone oil. By their own admission it washes away in a couple of days. And it's filled by spin coating.

    Sounds super useful.

    Yeah but carbon nanotubes

    This was just teflon on top of those shrinking plastics to cause lots of little bunched wrinkles.

    If it has the word nano in it it's 99% useless as near as I can tell.


    This is hyperbole, but like, I've seen too many seminars where people wrote their name using a laser on a wafer of some shit and then it was never heard from again

    Castle Update: I am still sleepy. I went to bed "early" last night which was at approximately... 12:40am. God damnit, you fucking sack of shit Castle!

    fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb
    that's right we're on a fucked up cruise / God is dead but at least we have booze

    It turns out that making really long oligos by hand is a colossal pain in the ass.

    Also, is DNA more information dense than like, a SSD?

    Alaska gives it away every year to its citizens.

    I like that because even though it's not enough money to live on or anything, like a thousand per person, it's step one towards a UBI (and from a red state!).

    it's a pretty stupid use of it, economically, but like, nice if you are going to be dumb with it

    They could have used the money for something even more foolish like ridiculously subsidized petroleum like Venezuela did.

    Yeah.

    There's still a country CD jammed in the CD player and whatnot.

    I'd just rather be done with this thing, it's not paid off until next march.

    President Nicolas Maduro said pump prices of premium fuel would rise from the equivalent of $0.01 a litre to about $0.60 (£0.40).

    The cost of lower grade petrol would rise to about $0.10 a litre.
    This was in 2016. The negative externalities have to be horrific.

    Oh if you have that now then you're all set too. It's just in 5 or so years the market will be saturated there and new tools will mean that everybody just does a little bit of it.
