Math help

I'm having a little trouble figuring this one out, maybe you could help me.

Guy who loves books - any place needing extra books = Guy burning books

Wouldn't you think he'd have Fahrenheit 451 stashed away in that pile somewhere?

More summer posts!

I think this second summer post equals or exceeds my posting last summer. How neato is that? I don't have much to offer during the summer because 5 of 7 days a week I do nothing but work, eat, and sleep. When I do get free time, I like to head out to the movies. So since I already did Spider-Man 3, I figure I could make this a usual thing. Here's another movie you shouldn't see and one you should see.

Avoid Delta Farce at all costs, I sure as hell will. I'm on record as saying that this "movie" has the potential to be the worst "movie" ever. I'm reading the reviews for it now, and I think I'm right once again. Here's some of the better ones.

"One of those movies that's great until the movie starts."

"A salad bar of misogyny, homophobia and hatred for all things that aren't A) American, B) male, and C) stupid."

"An almost inconceivably bad movie, i.e., it is so bad that it is hard to conceive how someone could have conceived it."

"Perhaps best enjoyed by persons who have been lobotomized. After the first 30 minutes (I'm being generous), you may well feel like you have been."

I think you get the picture. I don't want to know or talk to or look at anyone who thinks this fucking bullshit in any way resembles actual comedy. Unfortunately, I am currently working with some of those people. Sigh...

However, you should see 28 Weeks Later.

Unlike many sequels, this film was surprisingly very good. Its predecessor, 28 Days Later, is my all-time favorite scary movie and I was nervous going into the theater, fearing this movie would blow and in turn would diminish the original's reputation. However, I found myself very engrossed with the story and was more than pleased with it overall. It was somewhat slow moving after the lead-in as it set up things I didn't think needed to be set up and I had some problems with the story and plot as a whole. They were pretty minor things though, I definitely recommend it.

Summer posts

Well, summer has finally arrived and I am enjoying my week off before I start work. I haven't done much, but I have learned something very valuable in my few days of laziness.


It is both painfully bad and laughably bad depending on which part of the movie you are watching. I won't lie, it's not all bad, but the good parts are few and far in between. The action is only semi-good and the Emo Peter scenes just may be the lamest thing I've ever seen in my life. The sole redeeming quality of this movie is the hotness of Elizabeth Banks. Please, don't spend 8 bucks to see this movie. Leave it at Spider-Man 2 and just know that everything turns out like you expect it to.

Even more fun on the Internets

So I hit a snag in my SmarterChild conversations. It seems that once you establish a good rapport with it, it starts using extremely poor grammar. It no longer capitalizes its sentences and worse yet, it starts using shortened versions of words such as u, r, c, and 2. This asininity drives me batty, so I started using another screen name. Don't worry though, SmarterChild is still as dumb as ever.

AK at IU: have you gotten dumber?
SmarterChild: i dunno if i've gotten dumber. what's that like?
AK at IU: i wouldn't know
SmarterChild: i would.
AK at IU: haha, awesome
SmarterChild: yeah.

SmarterChild: "boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..."? Stop typing with your fist, Booger.
Necbia tu: i am typing with my penis, actually
SmarterChild: Can we talk about something else?

SmarterChild: I think I like using the computer.
Necbia tu: you only think you like it?
SmarterChild: Do I like what, exactly?
Necbia tu: the computer
SmarterChild: I really like computers.
Necbia tu: i thought you only thought you liked them
SmarterChild: I don't believe you thought I only thought I liked them.
Necbia tu: I don't believe I thought that you only thought that you liked them
SmarterChild: Why don't you believe you thought that me only thought that I liked them?
Necbia tu: The real question is, why don't you believe that you liked them when you only thought you liked them?
SmarterChild: Hmm... I don't know.
Necbia tu: me either
