How looooong... Has this been going on?

Went on a walk tonight, and met a few nice people around. That was nice. I need a little serenity now and then...

Doing a little better with my math classes now. Tomorrow is going to be hectic, though. Ugh. I have to get up early. This Elge post is most likely the last thing I'll do tonight.

Heh. check it out. A mosaic of George Bush made entirely of pictures of... Well, it tells you at the top. And while we're on it, here's another of Ashcroft, with little porn pictures. (Not, well, anyplace safe.) Okay, a little immature, but I like them, especially the latter. "Little porn pictures" is a phrase that amuses me for some reason

Now, for something more intelligent! This web page is really interesting. It's called, "The Uncanny Valley." The charts themselves, a result of a robiticist's study, shows the relation between reactions of humans to appearance in the first, and movement in the second. The application of these ideas is much farther reaching that this, though.

Well, goodnight!

Heh heh! XD That phrase amuses me to no end.

No comment on The Uncanny Valley, though? I was thinking about dropping a line to the PBXers about it. They would like it just as much as I did.

I don't know how to break it to you, but one of their players has the Uncanny Valley chart as their avatar. Feel free to reference it, though!

And Dave Bryant alone redeems furry fandom. ;p I spoke to him at the last FurCon; very smart, cool guy.

Look at that loop... Wow... Wish I were in it. ;P

Then, I would also know who the heck Dave Bryant is.

The uncanny valley is very interesting, but every video game player knows that a simple healing spell gets rid of the walking dead, so I'm not afraid :)

You know where that came from? The reasoning goes that there wasn't any holy spells for the players to work with to fight undead, so they made a connection between "healing" and "holy." Thus, healing harms the undead. It wasn't philosophy that guided those 8-bit masters to make that decision, but pure laziness. XD
