nuclear weapons have done more to prevent violence in warfare than anything else in this century. as a deterrent, they have prevented who knows how much conflict, and lessened the severity of more than that. the cold war never became a real (and cataclismically world) war, india and pakistan have stayed with low level terrorism and diplomacy as opposed to all out conflict, etc. nukes are the ultimate scare tactic. everyone* should have one.

any biology-inclined individuals reading this-- WTF? the 1st chapter of my biotechnology book is "an introduction to living things" and it's talking about cells and molecules and tissue and whatnot. i don't understand anything. not that i don't get what the book is saying, i just can't make sense of it. this doesn't sound like it should work or would work. i don't get - and am never really told - how cells come together to make tissues. why shoudl a bunch of liver cells stick together and make a liver? and if that does work, why can't you combine 2 livers into one giant liver? [yes i'm aware that organs are more complex than that. a liver is not made up of a bazillion liver cells and that's it. but dammit, that's what the book makes it sound like.]
i didn't get this stuff in my highschool bio class either.

you know that stutter that shows up at the end of tracks on burned cds? what is that all about? and why does it only show up on SOME cds? and why is it showing up on some of the files i ripped from real cds, but not others? the format it is ripped to doesn't seem to have anything to do with it either. it's friggin annoying-ing-ing-ing

riiiiiiight. so, in the continuing saga of my room be infested - oh i haven't mentioned that, have i? well yes, my room is host to numerous brown hairy spiders and various beetle looking things and further pleasantness - i just attempted to chase a small nasty beetle creature out the door, by pounding the floor to make it run in the other direction. but rather than run under the door like i was expecting it to do, it ran into a small hole in the floor next to my door. DAMMIT MY ROOM SUCKS. STOP BEING INFESTED AND FULL OF HOLES. so i called maintenance and they're going to come spray poison on all my belongings. i'm thrilled.
i really am, too. i keep expecting to wake up covered in worms or something. i am really not a fan of having spiders run across my foot when i'm trying to read. the least they could do, if they have to run around my room being creepy, is to have the courtesy to go around my foot. i don't want to end up like that urban legend and wake up one day with spider eggs in my hair
