    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Which Full Metal Alchemist? The one simply titled "Full Metal Alchemist," or "Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood"? The first was made before the manga was finished, and follows a very different storyline. Brotherhood was made after the manga finished, and is a much more faithful adaptation. If you bounced off of one it may be worth trying the other, though if you bounced off of Brotherhood then maybe not. I haven't seen it myself, but I've heard good things about Claymore. Another that I haven't seen but have heard good things about is Goblin Slayer. And there's also Berserk, especially the old one from the late 90's. But Berserk is hyper violent and not for everyone. Lots of blood and gore, among other things, in that one.

    Meh. Not my problem. And I'd bet that pretty much every other spacefaring species would be their own kind of locust as well. Hopefully we're better at stealing their technology and using it to kill them than they are at realizing we're doing that and killing us. Or we could just go all Doc Brown meets Robert Oppenheimer and strap a couple warp engines together and throw them into their sun, causing it to go supernova and destroying their solar system. For now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds. All shall love me and despair. Get your broccoli to Mars! Two weeks! I need scissors! 61!

    Man, I WISH we had ufos to reverse engineer. Maybe then we'd get off this rock in a real and meaningful capacity. But at the same time it'd mean I'd have to wait even longer for humanity to be wiped off the map. But I guess that's a small price to pay for warp drives and being able to colonize other planets. Don't like it where you're at? Hop on an interstellar transport and move to an entirely new planet. Then maybe you'll find one you like and you'll stop wishing for human extinction, and only start wishing for genocide towards those planets you left instead!

    That'd be my guess as well. Even if it was an IPv6 address it wouldn't be .849. It could have 849 as 3 digits of the hextet, but it would still be missing a digit. And messing up at all with people that have computer knowledge is, to my experience, even more of an invitation for them to screw with you. Most people that I know of who mess with the scammers are people that have at least some working knowledge. And the ones who do it the best are the ones who are well versed and work IT for a living, because they're the ones who are most likely to have a spare VM laying around and who will both go torturously slow and complete the deal with a sandboxed VM that they let the scammer try to mess with...

    Hey, I'm not always unhappy. Just most of the time. Because I live a life of sadness and hate. Every so often I get something good that makes me happy, and lately I've had a few things that have done it. One of them was the reaction I got for the housewarming gift I sent my friends who moved to NY. I sent them a copy of the D&D Art and Arcana book, which is a collection of D&D art and little stories about it. The one is an artist, and the other is someone who's been playing D&D since the late 80's. Both are big nerds. I just got told by the artist that they've spent the last hour since she got home from work going through the book, with her talking about how cool the art is and him going on trips down memory lane over certain pieces. It makes me happy to know that I got them a gift that both of them can enjoy for different reasons.

    I love my cats, but I'm also one of those people that makes sure they have boundaries. Like they aren't allowed on my kitchen counters, because that's nasty. If I catch them in places they aren't supposed to be, they get the scoop and toss. And I'm not averse to kicking them off of things that I need, either.

    I just got a raise! A whopping $1.65/hr at that! And that's just a departmental raise! I get a 2.5% cost of living adjustment next Monday. With my shift differentials I will be making over $20/hr next month! I am a very, very happy man today.

    The original is currently old enough to vote. I first heard it over half my lifetime ago, which makes me feel old. It doesn't make me feel very young...

    Nope. Mine is like a cheap version of that. Wood for the structural frame, mild steel rectangular tube for the mattress frame. The part that's broken is the front piece between the legs. It's got a split in the middle from where someone that was too heavy sat down too fast right in the center of it. It broke halfway through against the grain and sent a split with the grain for about a foot in both directions. I was hopeful that a few decking screws and some wood glue would work well enough, since it was stuff I had at the house already. But I guess spending $5-10 on a 2x4, a couple bolts, and some threaded inserts isn't terrible. The worst part of the job will be drilling the holes to match the existing holes in the legs. And that's easy enough.

    Well, I assembled the slightly broken futon I acquired after making some haphazard repairs to it. The broken piece will definitely need replaced when I have the time. When I sat down on it I could hear it trying to break the repairs. But all I did was glue the split board and then put a few decking screws through it from both sides to hold it together. I didn't even reinforce it with additional lumber. It's functional, but not good. My cats have claimed it, though, so it must be acceptable. When I do replace that piece, I'm going to try to also raise the futon a few more inches off the ground. Then I can use it as part of the seating for my game table. Which will cut down on expenses for folding chairs. If I ever get a full set of woodworking tools I might even just completely rebuild the frame. But at a bare minimum it will require a good doweling jig and a router. The current frame is assembled with pocket holes, which I don't have the best opinion of, though they are both quick and easy to do. A decent pocket hole jig costs more than a decent self-centering doweling jig, but dowels are much stronger for a bit of extra time and work. So if I'm going to rebuild it, I'm going to have the technology. I'm going to rebuild it stronger, better, taller than it was before!

    If it's parked at my place I don't need big guns. I'm pretty sure I can make a pencil detonator out of stuff I can find at the local hardware store, and I know I can make a limpet mine out of stuff that's readily available. The hardest part will be making it a functional shaped charge to punch through the armor belt. But one way or another I'll bring her down eventually. Let it make port. It just makes it an easier target.

    When i was in the King's African Rifles the local Zambezi tribesmen used to call it "long pig." Never much cared for it...

    My attempt at making fudge turned out to be the goop variety. Which means I have a pie pan full of homemade chocolate syrup. Well, not really syrup because it's thicker than that. I guess it's ice cream topping fudge. Which means I need to go buy some vanilla ice cream. No point in letting chocolate go to waste just because it's runny.

    I attempted to make fudge. I don't yet know if the attempt was successful. I've never made fudge before, and I know that temperature plays the largest part in how it turns out, and I don't think I got it right. Worst case scenario is that I have a pan of delicious failure goop, or delicious crumbly powder depending on which way I messed up. From the looks of things, I'm betting it's goop.

    Star Trek logic - There's a ship adrift in space with obvious severe structural damage including massive hull breaches across multiple decks. Sensors show that the ship may rip itself apart at any minute. Let's send the first officer, second officer, and chief engineer over without space suits! On a rescue mission against hostile forces? Send the captain, the chief medical officer, and the chief engineer directly into the enemy headquarters with no support! What could go wrong? With the way the officers of Starfleet throw themselves into danger without really ordering anyone else to do it, it must be nice to be an enlisted man. Well, at least from TNG onwards. Enlisted redshirts kind of got shafted hard in TOS. Maybe that's why things changed roughly a century later...
