Since I'm mildly intoxicated, I'll just stick this here (i.e. can't be bothered to fit it anywhere else):
When I was about 7, I went to a birthday party with a person doing magic. I was determined to figure out how the tricks were done; Obviously, at that age it eluded me (I know what he was doing now), but a little while ago I was actually the person picked from the crowd to be the magicians "tool" for the tricks. Mentally I laughed since I knew he picked the worst person in the crowd to do it. I played along, but I already figured out 80-90% of the tricks he did throughout the entire show (I was the finally pick)... I took it as a strong victory.
It especially fell down where I tested for a false bottom in the supposedly untouched set of nested security boxes (Untouched from the very start. One of the finally t; which he happened to hold for a second when I almost dropped it due to an heavy imbalance in the open lid (handed in a way that was slightly unbalanced, followed by something to the effect "let me hold that while you adjust", to cover it for the 5 seconds he held and placed the item inside).

Watching everything except what they draw attention to is the key; In fact, to the keen eye, they're selectively removing things which are NOT part of the trick... either incidental or misdirection.

To be honest, the thought process behind figuring out magic tricks when watching them is a vital mental tool. It promotes lateral thinking as well as analytical thinking about the bigger picture, and not just about what you observe. E.g. Questioning what exactly you know and what you're assuming happened. If everyone had that mental tool, it would be a positive thing. I'm describing the whole thing in unflattering words, but it's more important than that. But... what do I know, I'm drunk.

This post part makes up for my long time since posting anything unique from myself. Tbh, I usually strategically post to be in the latter half of the standard posts per page (not atm though)... much more than just a fleeting thought as to the reasons.
I think a lot.

Luck. What are you taking?

Software Engineering (Lots of UML diagrams)
Systems Programming (Lots of C, Perl, regular expressions, and other weird stuff)
Programming Languages (C, C++, Perl, Linux stuffs)
Physical Geography (Global Warming, Geology, Oceans, a core class requirement)
Foundations of Mathematics in Computer Science (Algorithms, Probability, PigeonHole, Proofs)

I might drop Programming Languages so I don't go crazy trying to do all the homeworks.

SysProg, ProgLang, and Math Found all have 1 hour a week "labs" as well. So it comes out to 18 hours. Minus ProgLang it goes down to 14 which is rather more reasonable.

It's not like he doesn't deserve it. He steered the ship waaaay to close to an island, over a known shallow reef, in order to be able to wave at a water on an island. He approached to 150 meters, whilst the safe distance was 2500 meters. Then, when the shit is going down, he abandons ship instead of coordinating the rescue. I believe that alone can get you 12 years in prison.

A shining example of solid programming from Apple:

When you install their developper tools, it sets environemental variables to tell the operating system: "Hey man, want to compile something? Maybe use a makefile? Just use my stuff bro. It's yours. Here."

When upgrading the OS to Snow Leopard, the variable is lost.

Hence me losing a ton of time, frothing in rage at my computer, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN COMMAND NOT FOUND GCC".

Yeah, if the allegations are true, he's pretty much fucked and deservedly so.

From what I've been reading, it seems that sailing close to the island was something that cruise ships in that company did all the time, it just wasn't known to the higher ups. If that's true, it won't be just this captain who is going to twist.

There's that crash test dummy in Mythbusters they use when they test the myths. It's been involved in many explosions so far, so wouldn't it make sense to call it a blow-up doll?

Notepad is pretty good at opening any file. Now whether or not it is understandable...

Finally emailed Senator Cardin, even though he said he is only a sponser so he can stay in touch with PIPA. Somehow I think he is full of shit and I asked him to be more public about his stance, which I doubt he'll do. Oh well, his re-election is in 2013 I'm pretty sure.
