    Mustachianism - "Financial Freedom Through Badassity"
    Although an eentsy bit corny, this is a saavy, interesting and entertaining early retirement website: Mr. Money Mustache. He's not selling anything, nor does he have ulterior motives (aside from trying to create a better world, though there are scant mentions of even that).

    The short version: live frugally, save a large percentage of your net income for X years, then live off the interest/investments. The rule of thumb: accumulate 25 times your yearly spending.

    Here's a chart:
    Savings Rate (%) --- Working Years Until Retirement
    5 66
    10 51
    15 43
    20 37
    25 32
    30 28
    35 25
    40 22
    45 19
    50 17
    55 14.5
    60 12.5
    65 10.5
    70 8.5
    75 7
    80 5.5
    85 4
    90 under 3

    You know you've been working in restaurant kitchen for a while when you start saying "behind you" when walking behind random people in tight areas.

    3D Printing Living Beings
    I'm a bit out of the loop, didn't know how advanced 3D printing has become. 3D printing (uncooked) food... what?!

    The following quote got my wheels turning: "Some scientists are more ambitious: They intend to eventually print out entire limbs, including muscle and tissue, and eventually a full dinosaur model, at any scale necessary."

    Why stop at inanimate models? 3D print them a brain, heart, and all the rest. Could we foreseeably 3D print anything we could imagine? Simple things like a dinosaur with a human brain? A Giger alien with a hyena brain? A human?

    Pretty crazy to think about, and admittedly a long ways away, but it seems feasible...

    AsapSCIENCE
    Only recently discovered their excellent youtube channel. Went through the whole list, watched interesting sounding ones, and here are my top 5:

    #1 Can Plants Think?
    #2 Could We Record Our Dreams?

    #3 The Scientific Power of Music
    #4 Why Do People Obsess Over Sports?
    #5 Can We Genetically Improve Intelligence?

    The top 2 in particular blew my mind.

    Everything in Moderation
    I don't know what's worse: people who drink too much, or people who don't drink at all. ;)

    Trying 7 Sleep Hours a Day
    So i redd that 7 hours is apparently the optimal sleeping time, and sleeping too much is as bad as sleeping too little. Let's see how this goes (changing from 8 hrs previously).

    "If an alien came from space and studied the bacterial counts, he probably would conclude he ...
    ... should wash his hands in your toilet and crap in your sink"

    Think before you flush or brush

    Flushing the Toilet Can Be Deadly

    Cliffs notes: put the lid down when you flush. If using public/shared washrooms, know that there are fecal bacteria in the air for ~90 minutes after someone flushes.

    Current Mood: grossed out

    Why do we give our jobs our prime hours?
    Why do we give our jobs our prime hours?

    You get home, exhausted, and have 6 wasted, zombificated hours. I'm used to bizarre sleep schedules, so i'm going to rearrange mine to be waking up at 1am. Get up, spend 5 of my prime hours on fun things. Work hours 7-15 of my day. Burn through any shopping chores as a zombie post-work (no change there).

    The only thing requiring a bit of thought is eating. Eat when i wake up, and snack before work? Or snack when i wake up, and eat before work? The latter i think, given work meal breaks occur towards the end of the shift.

    High Heels
    High heel shoes are one of the worst fucking inventions. So obnoxious in every way.

    1) really loud and obnoxious for anyone on the floor below;
    2) subconsciously manipulative - noise makes you look (i realize that is the point of them);
    3) they "lie", about height, pretending to be taller (i realize that is the point of them).

    Gin
    Tasted Gin for the first time (afaik).
    Upside: tastes unique and not as bad as typical hard liquor.
    Bigger upside: your breath smells like mouthwash?
    Downside: still doesn't taste great when you get down to it.

    Skinner
    The artist for the latest Mastodon album cover is amazing. He specializes in "psychedelic nightmare paintings", fusing 3 of my favorite things. Immediately added to my artist compilation!

    Pears
    I've always loved pears, but they always seem so hit and miss. Either you bite in and it's too hard, unripe; or, the inside is all mushy brown cuz it's over-ripe. So i searched.

    "To test if a pear is ripe, apply gentle pressure near the stem end. If it gives slightly, it's most likely ready to be eaten." [s]

    Isla Vista Killings
    I don't want to propagate his name and contribute to making him some sort of martyr - as sadly his name sticks in my mind already.

    I watched the Isla Vista killer video and read a bunch of his quotes.

    While a lot of it is madness and fucked up, there are some grains of truth in there. Seeds of truth, which in a warped mind, sprouted into insane ideas and terrible acts. It's a sad world we live in, both in the way he was/felt treated, and in what he did. In the end, everybody loses.

    Oh, and how fucking creepy and bizarre is the forced way he laughs, w t f.

    What scares me the most is the future potential of people like him. People that want to kill "everyone" out of "revenge". He wanted to do much more damage than he did, but luckily was not smart enough to do so. Not only that, but as technology improves, it enables lone gunmen like this to do more and more damage. Reading his methods gave me ideas about how he and others could have gone about it so much more effectively. Scary thought. I won't go into details, as aiding/enabling such horror is possibly the sole subject i refuse to immortalize on the internet.

    Current Mood: sad
