  i just spent the past 4.5 hours working out the complications involved with my buffer solution, and probably another 5 hours this past week just thinking about things involved with it. oh, the joys of research.

  here's something completely asinine to try to recall when you're answering the "call of nature": how many restrooms have you employed in your lifetime for a purpose other than urination? my answer: 52 to 56. and you wanna know the real fucked up thing about this (other than the fact that i'm even pondering this topic):

i can still picture the layout of the damn near all of them!

...i guess a photographic memory does have its uses.

  word: recreation

my thoughts: the the prefix re- means (roughly) to do again, or do over. so...what are we re-creating when we engage in re-creation anyways?

dictionary definition: Refreshment of one's mind or body after work through activity that amuses or stimulates; play.

so...one would be led to think that it is ourselves we are creating again. that only begs the question as to what state we are currently in to need to be recreated.

  recently i agreed to tutor someone in a general chemistry course, and found myself calling her to see if she needed help, and she'd hardly, if ever, call me back. i assume by now she's failed it for the third, fourth, or tenth time.

but that figures...i've never had good luck with girls named anna.

  Recently I had to read the play "Everyman" and write a short essay about what it means to me. What follows is what I pulled out of my ass at 3 AM, and I'm actually quite pleased with the result.

"Everyman", in a way, strikes me as a product of its time. It was written during the Middle Ages, a period dominated by religious (read: Christian) thoughts and ideals. Naturally as one who is nonreligious, these underpinnings don't resonate well with my belief system. Nevertheless, I do feel that there is a lesson that can be gleaned from this play, and that would be that most of one's qualities, both extrinsic (beauty, strength, and wealth) and intrinsic (knowledge and wits), really don't matter in the grand scheme of things. Given a long enough time span our good looks fade, our strength ebbs, our knowledge base and wits become faulty, and our wealth becomes dispersed. At such a point we are dead, or well on the way to becoming so. As I learned in Physical Chemistry, the entropy of the universe is always increasing; such is life. So, with that said, one encounters the existentialist's dilemma: just what is the point of living, what can be ascribed to the meaning of life if all of the above is going to happen sooner or later? The answer, as pointed out in the play, is that one's good deeds live on after the person who performed said deeds is long gone.

As I see it, there is no Heaven or Hell to worry about when I'm dead; there's no one up in the sky who keeps track of what I'm doing. There's only me and the now. "Being and Nothingness" is how the philosopher John Paul Sartre might describe it. Since I'm only here once, I have to make the best of it, and make things as enjoyable for myself and for those around me as I can while we're still around to experiene life.

When I die, I don't want there to be a funeral service, and a burial plot, and a tombstone, and all that nonsense. If I have my way, I would like for someone to dig a hole, put me in it, and plant a Japanese Maple tree and perhaps some species of poppies on it, so that I may be "reincarnated" in a sense, and live on in these organisms. To me, the former situation is just a pathetic way of clinging on after death; it's like saying, "Remember me" not "Remember what I was about". By removing all the listed trappings, I feel that I can better express this point; that when all is said and done, who you were and what you had doesn't matter. All that matters is what good you did and what kind of legacy you left behind. This, I feel is the take-home message from "Everyman".

  i think that if there's ever some kind of epic battle of good vs. evil - an armageddon - and i have to choose between god and the devil, i think i'll side with whoever the independant deity happens to be, because i think that a two-deity universe is just so unfair.

  Subject: New Terrorist Threat From Math Majors

December 8, 2003, NEW YORK (AP) --

At New York's Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to
be a public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while
in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a setsquare,a slide rule, and a

At a morning press conference, Attorney general John Ashcroft said he
believes the man to be a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He
is being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a fearsome cult," Ashcroft said. "They desire average
solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a
search of absolute value. They use secret code names like "x" and "y"
and refer to themselves as "unknowns," but we have determined they
belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates
in every country.

"As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, there are three sides
to every triangle," Ashcroft declared.

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had
wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have
given us more fingers and toes. I am gratified that our government has
given us a sine that it is intent on protracting us from these math-dogs
who are willing to disintegrate us with calculus disregard." "Murky
statisticians love to inflict plane on every sphere of influence," the
President said, adding, "Under the circumferences, we must differentiate
their root, make our point, and draw the line."

President Bush warned, "These weapons of math instruction have the
potential to decimal everything in their math on a scalene never before
seen unless we become exponents of a Higher Power and begin to factor-in
random facts of vertex."

Attorney General Ashcroft said, "As our Great Leader would say, read my
ellipse. Here is one principle he is uncertainty of: though they
continue to multiply, their days are numbered as the hypotenuse tightens
around their necks."

  malignant record's email discussion list, the "tumorlist", just sent out its last email about 30 minutes ago. it's kind of odd seeing the end of something, since most things give off the illusion that they will last forever, or at least that assumtion is implicit in one's thoughts.
