A year later and I’m still surprised that this song isn’t a Hunger Games tie-in.

I showed up to work at the lab / your mom’s house, fully expecting you to be moping around in your pajamas, eating ice cream and obsessing about you-know-who. But you’re not! You’re wearing lady clothes - you even showered, didn’t you? You smell good.

Dr Foster’s Research Log, Entry #1392393649: first impromptu telepathy experiment failed. Tried to warn Darcy with my eyes that murder would be incoming if she didn’t stop talking, but message did not reach target.

Stymied by state tax form. Shouldn’t have left it this late, but eh! can’t go change that now. I just wish it was written as clearly as the federal return I did. :P I could be done by now and sleeping.

Good times and bad hangin out after work with the sibling today. :P The good? Finishing the second episode of In The Flesh and being totally in sync vis-a-vis what parts were cool and whether the main dude had been secretly dating his BFF. (Answer unclear! Signs point to YES)

The bad? Trying to open up afterwards about problems in my life and having Sibs make parallels between our differing current life-difficulties which, while apt enough, caused Siibs to reframe everything in the wrong emotional tenor. (Liiiiike, I’m frustrated that my friend didn’t even finish the job interview I set up for her at my company, but I’m not angry with her, right? And so I wanted to talk about how difficult it is to self-start when you and almost everyone you know have a broken get-up-and-go… not complain about how my friends are jerks for not getting as enthusiastic about the group activities I come up with.)

During World War One, 10% of all casualties were civilians.

During World War Two, the number of civilian deaths rose to 50%.

During the Vietnam War, 70% of all casualties were civilians.

In the war in Iraq, civilians account for up to 90% of all deaths.

but the news calls them civilians enemy combatants so people look away and ignore it

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, magic and science are said to be one and the same.

In Iron Man 3 the Earth scientist Maya Hansen created and weaponized Extremis, which made people inhumanly strong, nearly indestructible, and gave them the power of extreme heat, at the risk of burning out of control and destroying themselves.

In Thor 2, we learned that the Dark Elves had an ancient magic known as the Kurse, which made them incredibly strong, nearly indestructible, and appeared to have a burning effect, at the price of certain death when the power burned out of control and consumed them several hours later.

Essentially, Maya Hansen’s Extremis is an isolated development of technology that the Dark Elves had created thousands of years in the past.

Does this mean that Maya Hansen would, in effect, be recognized on other planets as a sorceress? I’m gonna go with yes, because that is just incredibly cool.

AUGH this is like, years too late, but I absolutely loathe whoever is responsible for converting all tv channels to digital. My house never got especially good reception, but the conversion took us from like 10-12 channels (with half of them being staticky 75-100% of the time) to 3 channels. Just 3. And of those 3, one is 100% paid programming 100% of the time… and all of them cut out occasionally.

I really really loathe the conversion to digital. Especially since my really good friend from high school, who I haven’t spoken to in ages, has his freaking movie Spirit of ‘68 on public programming tonight and I can’t fucking watch itttttttt.

UGH. Fuck this for real.
