so. to start:

quiz )

but more importantly: One FBI internal newsletter encouraged FBI agents to conduct more interviews with antiwar activists "for plenty of reasons, chief of which it will enhance the paranoia endemic in such circles and will further service to get the point across that there is an FBI agent behind every mailbox." read the article. free speech zones, etc.

hmm. sfgate seems to carry stories i need to read.

oh, and you know the thing about almanacs? i got one for christmas, like usual, and the next moring we read about it in the paper. apparently i'm a terrorist. then again, i have stated in public that i don't like Bush i hate the current administation. Bush is focal, but it's the whole deal. i just don't appreciate perversion of democracy and freedom, the erosion of my rights, and badly justified, although sorta supportable war. i think it's kinda okay to be the world's police, i just wish we weren't hideously corrupt about it. and that we didn't expect to be hated. people usually seem to dislike the police. especially when the police are killing without reason, extracting protection monies, selling weapons to criminals, and otherwise following in america's footsteps.

sorry, i try not to talk about politics, because i know i'm paranoid, i know i don't have a clear, reasoned argument, i'm just angry, tired, and disgusted. and apparently, canada is turning into america. c'mon guys, i don't want to have to learn spanish to dodge the draft. and to avoid evil. and grumble.

alright, now i'm gonna read boingboing, and add some more things i want to keep track of, or feel you should be aware of.

shot by shot, way too detailed, study of the films and expanded universe. uh, star wars universe.

read [ profile] mistersleepless today. and his new Brain Powered.
this rant about mutation you will probably enjoy more if you have any exposure to the X-Men. the first movie is enough background, if you're not a reader.

holographic lollipops

some one tried to modify the Linux kernel so they could be root on any machine incorporating the modified code

and i got that last one from a new group blog about the abuse of tech, and security issues. it's kinda neat so far. and apparently, according to BoingBoing and others, wifi is broken in europe.

and we stopped light, without losing the photons

article on the folklore of homeless kids in miami. do me a favor: tell me what you remember about bloody mary. i remember that if you chant her name, 3 times, (3 times 3 times?) while looking into a mirror in a dark room, a spot of blood will appear on the mirror and then bloody mary will come through the mirror and kill you. or, at least once i heard she appears in the mirror behind you. anyway, death. there was some sort of connection to jack the ripper. maybe some sort of thing about typhoid mary too. i think i heard once that bloody mary was typhoid mary. i'm pretty sure i never heard that bloody mary was the virgin mary, but i seem to remember stuff about them being sisters, or evil twins, or just spiritually opposites. really fascinating stuff. gonna go look for more info.

woot! they finished working on the server. now i can remove the other extra entries. also, i found the best thing in the world: all recent photos from SOHO also, i found a shiny directory of daily mpegs from soho that dates back to jan 10, 1996. check out the mpegs from eit 195. it takes more pictures, and it seems to have the best resolution.

okay. most of the staic is gone on the new images. i am sad.

we were not all baked in our beds.

The third largest solar flare ever recorded um, happened, on tuesday. and it is perfectly aimed for earth. It should hit "probably at or before 12 noon UTC". so 7am eastern standard. Nasa has more images including a very cool animation which i believe is in ultraviolet.

oh, and these are links from my sunspot post on... uh... friday?
4 hour ultraviolet sun
10 minute aurora
48 hour animation (magnetic activity in the corona)

i have one thing to say: sometimes static makes me laugh.
padmaclynne: (Dancing Like A Monkey)
okay, so we have two massive sunspots going on. the coronal ejaction from the first one hit about midday, but sunspot 486 will give some lucky people auroras tonight. I also found an ultraviolet image of the sun, updated every 4 hours, and satellite image of auroral activity updated every 10 minutes.

and this one is the last 48 hours of activity. it's animated.

ever since i found out the northern lights existed, i have desperately desired to gaze upon them. and if i could arrange a massive blackout of the east coast tonight, and i had a northern exposure off of my balcony, well, um, that'd rock.

okay. done for now.
padmaclynne: (Default)
also, this is an entertainingish fwd about star trek and pagans.

i am hungry. it is 1:42. i will not get to eat until 6ish.

maybe i should kill and eat a user.

oh, and i have a horrible cough which has been around for about 3 weeks, for which i am taking amoxicillin. because both ears and my sinuses are also infected. and i forgot to go to my followup appt on thursday. i should call willets later. except for the fact that they will all be gone before i leave work. maybe i should make a 2 minute call. it is oncampus. yeah.

two things:

the actor playing jesus in mel gibson's passion of christ movie got hit by lightning. again.
