Just ask any leftist.

Well, I think I might be able to explain that one…

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, a psychological Defense Mechanism is …in psychoanalytic theory, any of a group of mental processes that enables the mind to reach compromise solutions to conflicts that it is unable to resolve. The process is usually unconscious, and the compromise generally involves concealing from oneself internal drives or feelings that threaten […]

I’ve been having some trouble getting anything accomplished the past few days.  For example, this morning I planned to drink heavily all day, but I just never got around to it.

Just can’t help myself

I’ve been plugging along all semester in an online introductory IT class.  Now, it hasn’t been worthless; I’ve been exposed to quite a bit of stuff I didn’t know or was only vaguely familiar with, but the whole experience has been rather frustrating.  Feedback from the instructor has been minimal.  Out of assignments for 23 […]

A great video about people suffering from FWP.  I’ve included it specifically for Rat Jr.’s associates.  (via IMAO) (by the way, if were being honest and ethical, instead of linking to IMAO every day I would just tell you to go there first and then wander by here later if you have time, but I’m […]

And I should listen to you because?

One of the classes I’m taking this semester is a sort of general computer course.  I know that’s not terribly descriptive, but it’s hard to describe.  It’s pretty much a hodge-podge of basic information.  In the book we’re using, the current chapter introduces the concept of “find and replace” in text documents.  (Yes, it’s a […]

PQRN and Torrents

SOPA. Crap. ‘Nuff said. Except it isn’t.  Massive outrage gets a temporary victory, but this will be back in another form as soon as the furor dies down a bit.  Meanwhile, Larry Correia has a great rant about SOPA and all the other stuff we’ve let happen.  Go read it.  It’s worth it to get […]

More reminders

First off, I don’t know what 52 is supposed to feel like.  I don’t feel settled and mature.  I don’t feel like my life (objectively speaking) is probably more than half over.  That said, I seem to be getting a series of reminders that I’m no longer young. A few weeks ago it was attending […]
