...hioctaneslug, the newest member to LetsJapan.org.

Several rungs above the common botfly in the evolutionary ladder, if I'm not mistaken.

Feel free to ask him/her about all things agricultural in this thread.



cheers.

hioctaneslug,

why, oh why, has my neighbor invaded my garden area? she's obsessed with gardening, which in a sense explains it, yet i specifically told her that i had plans to do something with it. now she's gone and forced me to learn new words in japanese like 'violate', 'rape', 'freedom of choice', and 'autonomy'. (we're talking about my garden here. or the garden i would have had.)

Hioctaneslug, I'm interested in seaweed farming. Would I get wet doing this? Also, what's the best way to get started?

hioctaneslug....

what kind of nutritional value do you have? If I ate you, would I be hungry again in an hour? Or would one of you last the whole day?

You could set up a fence and write
"STRANGERS STAY OUT -- PRIVATE PROPERTY" on it.

Actually, the fence alone would probably do the trick. But I'm not sure how far I should push this. She's out there at 4-fucking-30 in the morning every day ravaging everyone's garden spots in the apartment complex. Methinks something's not quite right here and I don't know how far I should push this issue. (Though I was out doing my part on Green Day by 'pruning' the daffodils that had mysteriously appeared under my sliding door. :roll: )

Must not be drastically important then.



Anyway, link was just a link., nothing more.

Hrm, how do you *fail* philosophy classes anyway...
Insult the professors wife?
Not show up?

Or is selecting them considered a failure a priori ?

Forgotten: no.
Used as pretexts to justify ongoing abuses: not that either.

I dont think its useful to ban swastikas or images of enola gay. Those actions wont undo or even redress the damage that has been caused.

About soldiers: yes I think they *are* personally responsible for their own actions despite being ordered to commit them. War itself is a crime, but soldiers are generally not punished for what they do.

Ah, his long analysis of christianae was a bit, well long and boring, but trust me bertrand russel is one of my heroes :)

"In praise of idleness" is one of my favorites. Imo, its the foundation upon which Brooks, RMS, and even ESR based their ramblings upon. ( in short, creativity is oft inversely proportional to incentive. )

This creates many corollaries:

Management is the enemy of productivity.
Aim destroys accuracy.
Yearning creates unfulfillment.
Seeking hides the sought.

Its koan-like, almost.

One observation I like, as a programmer:
relinquishing control (with copyleft) restores control (of your computer to you)
