"Being able to travel faster than the speed of light would lead to a wide variety of bizarre consequences. For instance, an astronaut moving faster than it would theoretically arrive at a destination before leaving."

A woman with what appears to be a cell phone mysteriously appears in a 1928 Charlie Chaplin movie.

Coincidence? I think not. Hey time traveller, could you please buy me a cure for autism?

I cannot make that make sense no matter how hard I try. I am so confused!

If you're referring to the subject line, mood, and repost button, respectively, I wrote them as if I was accelerating to twice the speed of light. They mean "That's what you get when you experiment backwards!", "nerdy", and "Post to your journal", respectively.

*adds this to my mental list of bad ideas*

By the way, this was linked on Dinosaur Comics today, and it seemed like something that you might be interested in!

How to Make a Complete Map of Every Thought you Think

Sounds interesting, but would I have to include every single thought I think, including the strange, dirty, and/or violent thoughts that randomly pop up from time to time (and would become more frequent if I did this due to my attempting not to think them)? Now I see the list of general categories to include, so I guess that answers my question. I'm still confused as to the usefulness of this, though.

I don't know! I haven't read the book! :)

I started reading the PDF file, but blatantly disobeyed my anti-TL;DR userpic by stopping in the middle of Chapter 1.

I just thought you might find it an interesting idea, but you don't actually have to do it. :)

That sounds interesting!

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
