Life with Tourette's
For those of you who don’t know, Tourette’s Syndrome (which will be shortened to TS for much of this essay…thing) is a mental disorder defined by Georges Gilles de la Tourette (1857-1904). TS is characterized by a myriad of essentially uncontrollable vocal and motor ‘tics’. These tics may include such actions as blinking, tilting your head, repeating actions or words,...

This Guyyyyyyyyyyyy. Coming up soon: What life with Tourette’s Syndrome is actually like, and why the Tourette’s Guy videos on Youtube are bullshit.
Why Puzzle Games are Too Easy
I consider myself a pretty good puzzle solver. Portal and Portal 2 clocked up time based on how long it took me to perform the actions of a puzzle, with about 45 minutes total thrown in of silent contemplation. According to one of my good friends who’s played the Portal 2 co-op with about 30 people, I’m the fastest puzzle solver they’ve ever seen. When I finished the newly...
AT LONG LAST. Crows is finished. Done. Should have been ages ago, but yeah, I’m lazy and largely unmotivated. But while at a friends house at 2 in the morning, I decided I had nothing better to do than finish that one story that had been sitting on my desktop for a month now, and pushed out the last eighth or so in half an hour. Soon I’ll get around to having someone edit it and...
Crows, Pt. III
Yep, a but later than I would have liked, but it’s here all the same. Enjoy. http://bit.ly/mUXpFs
Life has been problematic. Due to the problematic nature of life, I didn’t upload a Crows update yesterday, nor today (pretend that 12:10 in the morning still counts as the 21st). That being said, I WILL upload an update tomorrow (I refer to the 22nd); maybe two updates. Crows will be finished in those one or two updates - it really isn’t all that long. To wrap things up, sorry for the...
On Fiction and the Multiverse
I’ve been consumed lately with devising a reasonable explanation for how multiple universes could coexist and interact. And while it would almost certainly be riddled with errors when studied with physics in mind, I do believe I can now explain how fanfiction and the Internet work. Put simply, there is next to no fiction anywhere in the Multiverse. The vast majority of what we believe is...

Crows, Pt. II
Hey, look, a Crows update! Already! Wow, I honestly expected to forget about that and make up some excuse in a week or so. For as long as I remain dedicated, though, I’ll try to churn out an update every day or two. Stay tuned, tell your friends, (not nearly enough people read my blog, and I crave attention) and it’s not Slenderman. Crows, Pt. II: http://bit.ly/n8EYmy
Writing about social and internet issues and phenomenon is surprisingly difficult when you need to think of non-massively controversial topics like abortion, religion, economics, and gay rights. I try to avoid all these things, so as to avoid discriminating against any sort of group or demographic. Moving on, I’ll not be writing about for world perception, internet anonymity, or anything of...
Out of Work, Will Write for Metal
I seem to have very little to write about currently. There is a little button on the side of my blog asking you to ask me something to answer back to you. I heavily suggest you press it. Besides that, if you have any special piece of writing that needs doing (blog, homework, paper on microphysics superconductors (not really that last one)), I would happily write such a thing for you in exchange...

On Tag Flooding
For those of you who may not be familiar with the concept, Tag Flooding is when a person, while uploading something to the internet, attaches as many tags to it as they can possibly think of. The goal of tag flooding is invariably that of garnering more views on one’s work. In general, though, it is largely frowned upon by the internet at large, primarily because of its atrocious misuse. In...
On Modern Day Vocabulary, or the Lack Thereof
It’s a well known phenomenon that the average vocabulary of the world today is but a shadow of it’s former self. A year ago, a classmate asked me the definition of ‘decay’. Since then, I have been asked to define everything from ‘ascertain’ to ‘verbatim’. I’ll grant that certain archaic words (shall, wont, forsooth and the like) may simply have...

On Anonymity and the Internet
Everybody knows of the anonymous nature of the internet, made famous through YouTube, /b/, and the myriad of other famous sites. Primarily, though, anonymity is seen on message boards and chat sites. Here, a pseudo-community is born, with all of the little intricacies inherent to such a population. People fight, form friendships, and fool around. They quickly grow used to the facade put on for...
I Think, therefore I am Alone
Ah, Descartes, you glorious genius! To those who may not know, René Descartes is credited with the phrase ‘Cogito ergo sum’, which translates to ‘I think, therefore I am.’ A truly magnificent gem of a thought, which basically states that you can only be certain you have thought. The phrase tells its reader only that they are capable of thinking, and casts all other...
