  What is a blog?

  To those who are asking "what is a blog?", a blog is a personal Web log (blog is a shortened way of saying weblog), a chronicle of events or a journal where somebody writes down things that happen in their lives, their thoughts, and opinions.

  What's the difference between a blog and a forum?  Some people confuse forums with blogs.  A forum is for public discussion.  You can look that up in the dictionary if you like.  ;-)  A blog, being a Web log, journal, or personal diary would be for an individual.  Look at some personal blogs and compare them with forums, even those that for some odd reason are calling themselves blogs.  You'll see the difference quickly enough.

  January 6th, 2014:

    Created this new blog page, and started very limited advertising.

  A lot faster with the new blog page, this year.  Last year, I didn't make one until June.  LOL

  And, I put up only one advertisement, in the form of a text link on the VidScans (honest movie reviews and honest TV show reviews).  Now, that's very limited, yes?  ;-)  In time, I may put up a few more, but, I don't intend to have Web pages filled with advertisements like some Web sites.  You come to a Web site for content, not for a Web page that's nothing but ads.  If that's what you want, there's television channels like that.

  January 17th, 2014:

    Fixed this Web site's front door page.

  Putting the advertising code into my front door page messed it up, so I had to fix it.  It should look a lot better to visitors without all those little images in the wrong part of the Web page.  :-)  A lesson to be learned there; be careful of the code you get from someone, even if it's from a reputable Web site, if for no other reason that it could conflict with one of your unique creations.

  While I was doing coding, I also fixed the links on last year's blog page which was supposed to send people to the top of the page when they clicked on it.  And, yes, for those who didn't know it, yet, I do all of my coding with a text editor.  Okay, so I have trust issues, and don't want to take the chance on some WYSIWYG HTML editor messing with my Web pages.  If I want something on a Web page, I'll type the code for it there, myself.

  February 2nd, 2014:

    It's Groundhog Day . . .  Again?!  LOL

  Does anyone remember the movie Groundhog Day (1993), where Bill Murray's character, Phil, was stuck in a time loop and had to re-live the same day over and over again?  What did you like about the movie, and what would you have done differently if you were in the same situation?  ;-)  If I had decades (or, 10,000 years as someone said they originally were going to make him spend in a temporal loop) of extra time, living the same day over and over again with a way to pay for whatever I wanted like Phil did in the movie, I would be learning a lot more than just how to play the piano, ice sculpt, or do CPR.

  The Groundhog Day movie temporal loop effect was even used in season four, episode six (Window of Opportunity) of Stargate SG-1.

  For kicks, check out the picture I made of an avatar I created in the Second Life 3D chat program.  For those who have a limited Internet connection, check out the 86 kB version of the picture showing my avatar in Second Life.

  Submitted for a comparison, see the picture of one of my City of Heroes characters CyBeR RaDiCaL.

  February 10th, 2014:

    Created a new VidScans page about The After television show.

  Nothing fancy, just my opinion on The After TV Show review (2014).  Tried to make this newest Web page easier for those on limited bandwidth connections, with only a few small pictures.  Also spent a few hours trying to make the Web site less bandwidth-heavy on certain pages for visitors who might appreciate it.

  May 17th, 2014:

    Created a budget picture for poor people like me.

  To help people out even more, I've recently created a budget template picture that you can print out for those who are poor like me and want to keep better track of their money.  But, its file size is just a little over 120 kB, and it's 1204x1600 pixels.  Gave it a science-fiction look, and, if you want to get all Battlestar Galactica with it, you can trim the corners to make it look like pages from the show.  For some printers, it's best to set the width to about 8.277 in the Image Settings tab which may come up when you choose to print the picture out.  Remember to use grayscale under the Color tab and in the Advanced tab, set Ink Type and Ink Set to black.  This will save your color ink for full-color pictures.

  You're welcome.  :-)

    ☢   My green extraterrestrial invader look in Second Life   ☢

  For those guilty of speciesism in the Second Life 3D chat program, I created a new look, the science-fiction invader from Mars.  LOL

  But, then they get uppity because I still don't look human . . .  They don't seem to understand that maybe I don't want to be associated with humans.  Have you read none of their history?  Humans are constantly fighting, attacking others physically or emotionally for any difference whatsoever, claim that they're things like kind, caring and considerate, when, in my experience, they're anything but (unless they want something out of you or they're doing it for better P.R.).  Gee, I just can't imagine why I wouldn't want to be a human . . .  On top of that, insisting that everyone look normal in a virtual environment where people go to escape reality is kind of silly.

    Canvas Fingerprinting

  If you haven't yet heard about Canvas Fingerprinting, you should look up the basics about it (hence the link I just provided) and why turning off your Web browser's cookies won't stop advertisers from learning your Web browsing habits and giving you ads based on it.

  For those who want to avoid this, you can try the Tor Web Browser (it's free).  For many Linux users (I've been using it for a looooooong time, now), you don't have to use the command line, like they suggest in the Linux Instructions section, which most new Linux users find difficult, overly complex and if you type just one wrong character, the command won't work and you'll have to start typing it all over again.  You may be able to just put the file into someplace like the Programs folder, right-click on it and choose the Extract Here option.  Once it completes, you can simply go into the new folder, right-click on the start-tor-browser icon, choose Make Link and drag the link to your desktop, where you can double-click it to run the Tor Web browser whenever you want to use it, just like any other program.  Easy, yes?

  If you get an error (such as exit code 127), you may want to try the Experimental Tor Browser further down on that same Web page.  But, remember, experimental versions which are in alpha or beta stage are likely still a little buggy, may crash, take a little longer to connect to the Tor network or have other problems.

  For those who insist on sticking with their current version of Firefox or Google's Chromium or Chrome Web browser, you can try using the EFF's (Electronic Frontier Foundation) Privacy Badger.  While it's not as good as the Tor Web browser, it's something, at least . . .

  Some people may want to use their regular Web browser with the Privacy Badger in it for interacting with their bank and other Web sites where the Tor Web browser may not be the best choice and using the Tor Web browser for casual Web-surfing.  Just a thought.

    You're welcome. :-)

  July 29th, 2014:

    Why can't we have a fair justice system?

  Justice hasn't been fair for thousands of years.  Even the Code of Hammurabi from almost 4,000 years ago had a sliding scale, where the wealthy paid minor penalties while those in the lowest ranks of society often lost their lives for the exact same crime.

  A truly fair justice system (if by some miracle we get one in the next 4,000 years), would be better if the punishments involving physical discipline, jail time, and chance of capital punishment (preferably with the victims' families throwing the switch) were the same but, the fines should be based on a percentage of how rich someone is.  A $100,000 fine is going to be a lot less worrisome to the rich whereas to the poor, it may be the final straw before jumping out in front of a moving vehicle on the highway.

  But, I don't expect humans to be fair, despite the fact that most of them claim to be.  That, and so many of them demand fairness from others while refusing to be fair, themselves.

    My thoughts on Weird Al's Word Crimes music video

  As I watched Weird Al Yankovic's music video Word Crimes, some thoughts came to mind, which I wanted to share with you.  While I'm not too hip on the music, I, loved the message.

  Some of the points covered:  When you say you could care less, it means you still care a little about whatever it is you're talking about.  It's is a contraction, not a possessive.  There is no x in espresso.  Leave out the Oxford comma (but I think it should be used in cases where leaving it out would confuse things).  Don't write words using numbers (but, he says it's okay if your name is Prince).  Know the difference between lightening and lightning, doing good and doing well, irony and coincidence, and figurative and literal.

  In that last sentence, I gave an example of where that Oxford comma might come in handy to help avoid confusion.  The nit-pickers would likely insist that it would be better if I used as well as instead of the Oxford comma and the word and.  But, they're free to go pick a nit somewhere else.  Hee hee hee

  In regards to the "not using letters and numbers to replace words" point, there was a Jack Paar & Jack Haskell song written by Jose Melis and Sev F. Marino in 1955 called I-M-4-U AKA IM4U, which was supposed to represent I AM FOR YOU and the entire song (except for the spoken part, which was near the halfway point where Jack Paar explained the song) used spoken letters and numbers instead of whole words.  Back then, on television, such a song would likely have been accompanied by a bouncing little ball over the text to guide viewers on when to sing each part and you would see that the syllables were pronounced as the letters and numbers, instead of words which they sounded similar to.

  You've likely noticed that I used quote marks for emphasis in the above paragraph.  This was intentional.  Allow me to explain.  In the eyes of some people (you know who you are!), the phrase above with quote marks on each end should have been written in italic letters, but, others believe otherwise, that, if it's a title of a chapter of a work of sorts or being only one part of a whole set, quote marks can be used.  But, in a text medium when you cannot use italic text, you kind of have to use quote marks.  And, it is also a quote, since I was quoting myself.  So there! Nyah-nyah-na-nyah-nyah!  Okay, just had to do that to the grammar police out there (of which I'm frequently guilty of being).  LOL

  Two of the hash tags AKA hashtags Weird Al Yankovic used were #YOU'DBETTERSLOWDOWNANDUSETHERIGHTPRONOUNSHOWTHEWORLDYOU'RENOCLOWN" and #SOMECUNNINGLINGUISTTOHELPYOUDISTINGUISHWHATISPROPERENGLISH, but, I doubt if many people would use that very much on Twitter where you're limited to 140 characters . . .  LOL

  August 7th, 2014:

    Envisioning an ultrafast FTL drive which could go from one galaxy to the next as fast as an ordinary car moves from one road sign to another

  WARNING:  Nerdy post!  LOL

  While the song Spaceship Superstar by Prism only peaked at #63 on the Canadian music charts and #82 on the American charts, it had a good sound to it, and the lyrics were cool, as well.  I especially liked the part at 3:30, showing how an ultra-fast FTL craft would see the galaxies floating by.

  Extreme nerdiness ahead!  You were warned!

  Can you imagine the speed at which it would have to be moving at?  Some of the smallest dwarf galaxies contain around ten million stars while giant galaxies contain one hundred trillion stars.  Their size is generally about 1,000 to 100,000 parsecs (a parsec is about 3.26 light-years in length) in diameter, and the distance between them is thought to be on the order of millions of parsecs.  But, even if a spacecraft could attain such speeds as visualized here, it would still take a very long time to visit each and every galaxy in the universe, as there are estimated to be 170 billion galaxies in the observable universe (think of a sphere with a radius of around 46 billion light-years), alone.

  Now, if those weren't enough star systems to explore, consider this; Some believe that the known universe is but one of many, which could number in the trillions, if not more.  A multiverse, if you will.  Then, there's the possibility, however slight, of alternate timelines that we might access where even the slightest difference in what we consider to be the correct version of history created an entirely different universe, whether it differed by only the absence of a letter in the alphabet or a different species besides humans emerging as the dominant lifeform on Earth.  This isn't even taking into account the number of universes which may be possible if the laws of physics were altered even slightly from universe to universe (time could run faster, slower or even backwards to an observer who wasn't synced properly to that universe), possibly creating a near-infinite number of universes, each as real as the other.

  Most people dream about colonizing a few planets in the solar system, while my own mind reaches further outwards, seeing the universe (multiverse?) as infinite not only in size but also in potential.

  Okay, I'll shut up now before I bore you all to tears . . .

  August 19th, 2014:

    A (very short) tale of two cities (as well as an intersecting city) and the road that connects them

  Chicago Illinois AKA the Windy City, reversed the course of the Chicago River in 1900 so sewage would flow down the river towards other cities in the state instead of into Lake Michigan, 67 years after they forcibly removed the Native American Potawatomi tribe.

  Santa Monica, California, which was forcibly taken over from the Californios during the United States' Manifest Destiny expansion.

  Those two cities are the start and end points of the "Mother Road" US Route 66.

  On a side note of sorts, in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, parts of Route 66 - which were later named Veterans Parkway - were created to handle vehicles traveling at 100 miles per hour as a type of Autobahn for military transport.  Many of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois' businesses (including Eastland Mall) are located along Veterans Parkway as well as the corporate headquarters of State Farm Insurance and St. Joseph Medical Center.  The former may not insure you if you frequently drive at 100 miles per hour on the highway, but, you may get medical care at the latter when you have the inevitable accident.  ;-)

  September 23rd, 2014:

    Why extraterrestrials do not land and introduce themselves (it's not because the word phonetically doesn't start with an f)

  It's probably more likely that extraterrestrials do not choose to make official contact with the human species because they have seen the intolerance humans have of even minor differences with each other.

  Having a different skin color, religion, language, or because they wear glasses, talk with a lisp, dress differently, live in a different neighborhood or country, shop at a different store, or they are either skinny or overweight or a multitude of other differences seems just cause (in their minds) for ridicule, harassment, violence, and, sometimes, even murder.

  Imagine, then, how extraterrestrials who are aware of this intolerance fear the humans.  Capture, dissection, or outright murder while their advanced technology is stolen and likely used for war-like ends (almost all new technology is first used by the military), perhaps against their own kind, are the scenarios which I'm fairly certain run through the minds of extraterrestrial observers of humans.

  And, an interesting side-note for those who managed to read this far; The key to deciphering the Rosetta Stone (with Ancient Greek, Demotic and Hieroglyphic written on it) were the phonetic spelling out of names upon it.  And, now, you probably know something that many of those who didn't read this far do. ;-)

  September 23rd, 2014: Part 2:

    Horses are more caring than humans.  If it wasn't obvious to everyone, yet . . .

  I watched a short video of a horse sharing hay with another horse who had none through a barred window and was touched by the horse's generosity, compassion, and willingness to share with someone who had less.

  Now, if only humans were as caring and willing to share . . .

  Oh, who am I kidding?  The true god in many humans' eyes is money and greed is their religion!  They may say otherwise, but their actions clue you into their true selves.  Their motto seems to be "whoever dies with the most toys wins!"  LOL

  September 23rd, 2014: Part 3:

      Nuclear weapons fears 

  Not really sure why people are so afraid of missing nuclear weapons when they're really not that difficult to build in the first place . . .

  As for acquiring the specific materials which get Geiger counters so excited, security at those security complexes aren't as secure as people think:

  The Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee was broken into within a few months after I mentioned on my Web site about how they're not as secure as people think.  D'oh!  Not advised for those surfing the Web with a mobile device with a monthly download limit on it because it contains pictures and is a regular Web page, not one of those pages which are almost all text.  But, then, even the White House has crappy security, and a simple matter of locking the doors is seemingly beyond their comprehension of proper security . . .

  Hey, Obama, you want better security?  Hire a very nerdy paranoid who has a good imagination, knowledge and technical skills and make him live there!  LOL  Multi-factor authentication, hidden surveillance cameras which see each area at least twice, a heavily fortified panic room or safe room and very secure escape tunnels would be the least you can expect from them, as they realize that they're in a building that multiple groups and individuals know the location of and want to break into it.

  October 31st, 2014:

    Happy Halloween AKA Samhain!  :-)

  This is my favorite holiday of the entire year!  Yes, I know, Christmas is more popular, but, in all honesty, it's far too commercialized now and seems to be focused more on buying presents.

  Unfortunately, it's technically only for one day, although I think about it all year long.  But, here's an idea;   Since a lot of stores start putting their Christmas decorations up for sale in late September, maybe we should celebrate Halloween from July 31st to October 31st every year?  It seems only fair, yes?  Hee hee hee

  On a more-or-less related subject, the Day of the Dead AKA Dia de Muertos is celebrated from October 31st through November 2nd.  Gives you a couple of extra days to have fun and the Day of the Dead seems to be more in-line with what the earlier observations of Halloween were like.

  Samhain, as many of my regular visitors realize, was a much older holiday and had some livestock rancher traditions as well as many other and much, much older traditions such as the dead returning to their homes to visit their families, divination, people going door to door in costumes and getting food from those they visited, people leaving offerings of drink and food for the Aos Si AKA the Aes Sidhe, Daoine Sidhe, or just plain Sith.  Many, however, simply called them the fair folk or the Fae.  They were believed to inhabit certain trees, fairy mounds and the like, or used them as transit points between their realm and that of the humans' but, the veils between the worlds were thinnest at sunset, sunrise and certain days of the year like Samhain.

    Guess what phase Luna is in?

  Ahhhrrrooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!  Hee hee hee

  Kind of got clued into the lunar phase when I went into the bathroom for a minute, turned on the cheap little clock radio I sometimes leave in there (usually so I can have something to entertain myself with when washing the dishes in the bathroom sink) to hear Warren Zevon's song Werewolves of London playing and I started signing along . . .  with the howling in the song!  LOL  For some reason, howling always sounds better in the bathroom or in parking garage stairways.

  Maybe I better stay inside for a few hours until all of the diurnal humans are in bed . . .

  *  Update on the medical bills received after my escape from the hospital (DAMA AKA discharge against medical advice):  Most of them weren't too bad, although it may take me a while to pay them off and phrases like H/P EXPECTED CONTRACTUAL WRITE-OFF worry me . . .

  November 23rd, 2014:

    Being thankful for what you have

  Saw a picture which read "Why is it that people have it all can't be thankful for what they have;  they always want more.  And people who have nothing count their blessings everyday."

  Okay, if I had wrote it, I would have written it like "Why is it that people who have it all cannot be thankful for what they have?  They're always wanting more.  On the other hand, people who have next to nothing count their blessings every day."  But, I like the message.

  For those who don't know me, I'm a lot closer to the latter group.  I'm thankful for a roof over my head (even if it is collapsing and leaks, like my bedroom ceiling), that I'm not homeless, that I have a working refrigerator and ice cubes (it's odd but that's one of the things I missed when I was homeless because the little travel jug of tea I made was always warm in the hot summer heat), a place to do laundry and a place to sleep that isn't outside or in a room filled with strangers.

  A part of me is envious of those who are rich because they don't have to worry about money problems but, I also pity those who, even though they have millions of dollars, don't appreciate what they have and always want more, seemingly not realizing the fact that even if they had it all, they would still not be happy or thankful for what they have.  It's the poor who appreciate what they have because they know what it's like to have nothing or nearly nothing.  Something that those born with a silver spoon up their arses would never understand . . .

  Yes, I said the rich were born with a silver spoon up their arses.  That's what I believe may account for at least some of their uptight behavior.  After they're born is when I think the silver spoon is transfered to their mouth, which probably accounts for the expressions many of the rich seem to have on their faces, which gives them the appearance of having tasted something nasty earlier that part of their subconscious memory never lets them forget.  ;-)

    The (assumed) difficulty of going vegan

  You know, turning vegan may not be as difficult as many people imagine, since many people probably already know some fruits and vegetables that they can eat plain and prepare with little effort.

  If you're not trying to eat vegan (not eating vegans because that may get you talked about) because of how much of an effort it would be, think of the fruits you can eat without having to mix them with anything else or the vegetables which you can simply warm up in a pan of water or bake.  In the latter category, sweet potatoes, spinach and broccoli come to mind as three examples which even I can tolerate without having to add anything to them.

  Then, there's how much you'll probably save at the store.  Have you priced the leaner cuts of meat lately?  A pound of vegetables is a lot cheaper and there's no guilt involved.  :-)

  Do you think it's a little odd that a large furry lycanthropic kind of guy is talking about eating fruits and vegetables?  Well, it is Ragabash, so you have to expect at least a little craziness . . .  LOL

    Telepathic rapport with a cat looking at a Christmas tree

  In your life, there may be one moment where you are 100 percent certain that you can read the mind (or at least the intention) of another living being; when you see a beautiful Christmas tree with strands of blinking lights, beautiful and fragile ornaments hanging delicately from the branches with loops of tinsel circling it and, at the base of the tree, a cat looking up at it all.

  Looking into that feline face that's gazing so intently with eyes locked on that wondrous Christmas tree, you can swear you hear the words "challenge accepted!"  Hee hee hee

  December 21st, 2014: Part 4:

    My thoughts on the Solar System is a Vortex video

  Okay, I'll admit that the video was pretty, but it's wrong.  First off, it's not a spiral, it's a helix.  And, what about elliptical orbits (maybe they never heard of Johannes Kepler)? Then, there are other directions the solar system is moving and not just in orbit around the center of the Milky Way galaxy.

  * Note:  Some of the following information I got from Omni Magazine several years ago (one of the few magazines I enjoyed reading when I was younger along with Heavy Metal magazine) and it kind of stuck.  I don't claim to know everything, and I'm interested in multiple fields which (at the current level of technology, at least) means that I can never know everything there is to know about even one subject.  Those who want to learn all the details are welcome to look it up, especially since the following may be a bit dated and not as accurate, now.

  For starters, the solar system is moving towards the star Vega in the constellation Lyra.  It's also rotating around the center of the Milky Way galaxy.  In addition to this, the Milky Way galaxy is moving through the universe.  If you have motion sickness, maybe part of it can be attributed to the aforementioned movement in addition to the Earth's orbit and rotation.  I doubt if continental drift would tax your inner ear, over-much, however.  For those curious about its speed, I invite you to look it up and the supercontinent Pangaea.  Compared to continental drift, a snail is downright speedy.  LOL

  Want to learn more about astronomy?  Look up such things as the local interstellar cloud, the Virgo Supercluster and the Great Attractor.  It's not just star-gazing, although I like doing that, too, preferably several miles outside of heavily light-polluted areas.
