An important PSA about black holes [Nov. 17th, 2009|03:47 pm]
Yamato Iouko
Okay folks. Since I had fun doing that last little rant about 2012, I thought I'd link this for anyone who has the wrong idea about black holes. No, there are no black holes in 2012. Frankly, that would have IMPROVED the movie. >.>

http://www.badastronomy.com/bad/misc/black_hole_sun.html

Also, for those of you afraid that the Hadron Supercollider in Europe would create a black hole that would suck up the Earth:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro_black_hole#Stability_of_a_micro_black_hole

Micro black holes have almost no mass. Mass is what makes a black hole dangerous.

Sadly, now and then, SCIENCE FICTION LEADS TO STUPIDITY.

P.S. On an unrelated note, Jupiter is far too small in mass to become a sun, at least 80 times too small. There's not enough matter in the Solar System outside the sun itself that could make that change, so Jupiter's not gonna change anytime soon.

Is it so painful to do a little research? [Nov. 13th, 2009|02:34 am]
Yamato Iouko
Out of sheer MORBID curiosity, I looked up the movie 2012 on Wikipedia. It seems there's already a synopsis for it. I will admit this before I even go into my points: I am biased against the movie. It looks scientifically unsound from the very trailers, and I held no hopes of it making any sense. I WILL LJ cut for those who, for whatever reason, do plan to see the movie.

It got worse.Collapse )

A little late, but... [Oct. 20th, 2009|12:24 pm]

[mood |confusedconfused]

Even I'm confused by this whole thing with Obama getting the Nobel Prize. Now, it's not that I don't think he has the capacity to earn it legitimately, but at this point...isn't it a little premature? Since when do the Swiss hand out Nobel Prizes anachronistically? If you ask me, the Swiss are trying to suck up. Or they're giving it to him for not being Bush, which is even more ass (I know, I didn't like the man, but winning for not being someone the world didn't like is absolutely stupid).

(Please, no responses about likes or dislikes of Obama. This is specifically about the WTFery of him winning the Nobel Prize for not having done anything spectacular or even particularly noteworthy to earn it. Off topic comments will be deleted..WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE!!!)

Gah...why King of Fighters too?! [Oct. 9th, 2009|12:14 am]

I'm sorry, but there have been few things things in life I found completely too good to violate. The King of Fighters was one of those things. And I was keeping some track of the movie, hoping it might not turn into a complete pile of shit...until I saw how they cast Terry Bogard. And then I wanted to kill something.

WHY CAN HOLLYWOOD NOT STAY OUT OF VIDEO GAMES?!

Especially this one? I mean, how did KoF get on their radar anyway?

Finale [Jul. 27th, 2009|11:45 pm]
Yamato Iouko
So, if anyone knows how things have been going with me, and for those that don't, I've resumed college. Only one class this semester, Japanese. And tomorrow is the final. And the way this PARTICULAR class works is that there's only one graded assignment: said final. I'm nervous like crazy, but fairly confident. Anyone who reads this, please...

"俺を信じてよ!"

Respect for the Dead [Jun. 26th, 2009|08:36 am]
Yamato Iouko
So, I'm sure we've all heard about the king of pop passing. I heard myself at work yesterday, and being the curious wolf I am, asked around about what everyone thought. One person's response, an older black woman's, shocked me. She said that Michael passed like that because of him molesting children, being soft because of what he did to those soft kids. I'm sorry, but...no matter if it was true or not, WHAT THE FUCK?! Michael's not even buried and you're talking like this? I'm sorry, I just got totally pissed that she had the nerve to say something like that.

Totally missing the point... [Apr. 2nd, 2009|03:39 pm]

http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2009/03/the_watchmen_li.html

I have never heard of this moron before now. But she reviews Watchmen as if it's meant to be targeted at children. No one really thinks any action figures made from this movie are targeted for the kiddies, it's for adult fans who like collectibles, etc.

I'm not the biggest fan of Watchmen, I hate Rorschach; however, I happened to like the overall plot and would probably enjoy the graphic novel more. But this is the epitome of COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT! Guh...as a fan of DEEP and INTELLIGENT stories in comics and superhero-related media, this is a smack in the face! Oh noes!

THEN there's the whole controversy over Doc Manhattan's suspension bridge (hur hur). Look, men have penises. For whatever reason, in western society, we've reached a point where to some people, nudity and genitalia are so offensive, they'll nearly kill over it. And this boggles my mind. Because this is something we're ALL born with (the men, at least; and then, ladies have their own equally covered parts), and I'm not one to believe God's gonna cry if we don't stay covered up. GET OVER THE FEAR OF PENIS!

I suppose, in conclusion, that I don't like people who act like this: they see something and attack it from the wrong angle, and won't admit they're wrong no matter HOW many times they're shown to the contrary.

(Thank TVTropes for me coming across that article. Damn, TVTropes will ruin your life.)

I'm Going Back To School This Summer [Mar. 5th, 2009|05:00 pm]
Yamato Iouko
And I am scared out of my mind. I have tried to do college two times, failed each of the three semesters I attended. And I want to succeed this time, but I am VERY scared. About my relationships, about my job, almost everything. Even though I'm taking it slow this time...I'm just very worried, given my past. I just hope I'll be ready when classes start.
