Ramblings of a Writer



Posted by Legolover-361 , in Writing, Real Life Nov 01 2012 · 225 views

It's the first official day of National Novel Writing Month. My story's plot hasn't been solidified save for vague goals and ideals I want to represent in the narrative. In the Microsoft Word document I've reserved for my story, the only text present is "1.", which I typed to signify the first chapter.

This is not a good start.

I will be away on a camping trip from this afternoon till sometime Sunday, so I won't be able to post in the RPG forum for that duration if anyone needs me.


Wherein My Reading of Uncle Tom's Cabin Is Concluded

Uncle Toms Cabin, book, good
I began reading Uncle Tom's Cabin last week and finished this morning. 'Twas a brilliant read (despite its overabundance of commas), one deserving of the title "classic". Its writing style, which reminds me of other old books such as Black Beauty and The Wind in the Willows, will greatly influence my writings in the near future.


Usefulness and Uselessness

Posted by Legolover-361 , in Real Life, Writing, Philosophy Sep 27 2012 · 210 views
wistfulness, procrastination and 3 more...
Sometimes, when I'm idle, I get an urge to do something of great importance or usefulness; almost unfailingly, I am unable to think of something monumental to do or find the willingness to ponder further. I suppose the feeling is a side-effect of lethargy, an uneventful past month, and my continued procrastination on a novel I want to write, but vindicating its existence doesn't sweeten its taste.

Before anyone says anything to this effect, no, homework does not count as useful or important in my imaginings. :P


Half Empty or Half Full?

Posted by Legolover-361 , in Real Life, Writing, Philosophy Sep 20 2012 · 290 views
glass, philosophy, rambling
It is my humble opinion, ladies and gentlemen of the forums of BZPower, that the debate of whether a glass is half empty or half full is a fruitless expenditure.

To begin, the debate subject itself is rendered invalid from the start. Should a glass be filled to the halfway point, it already exists in both states being argued: half emptiness and half fullness. If half of the glass's volume consists of water, then it is obvious the remaining half of the glass's volume will be void of water.

Let us assume, then, that this debate is a matter of perception, in which case it still fails as a logical debate, as I have never once heard of a glass precisely half-filled with water being presented at any such debate.

Most people who question the glass's actual state of fullness have with them no measuring implements to accurately determine whether the amount of liquid within the cup is exactly half of the glass's maximum volume. Thus, should such a glass ever be produced, the first order of business ought to be determining with scientific precision whether the amount of liquid in the glass is above or below the exact halfway mark; should it not be half of the glass's volume, then the debate should be changed to whether the glass is, for example, 499/1000 empty or 501/1000 full.

Should a glass indeed be charged with the exact qualities of half fullness and half emptiness, then, the next task is to ensure the bottom half's mass consists of no materials but water, such that the argument may proceed. Dust and air bubbles are likely causes of foiled measurements. A glass to be presented at a debate of half emptiness or half fullness should always be filled in an area free of contaminants to avoid the troubles of purification post-filling.

Another point of concern is the area of debate. My readers should know that atmospheric pressure causes the compression of fluids such as water. One would think to avoid such pressure, the debate should be held in a vacuum; however, in such conditions, the water would vaporize; even Mars's atmospheric pressure cannot keep water in its liquid state. As the debate is not about whether the glass is half filled with gas, debaters must then set reasonable limits for the atmospheric pressure of the locale of debate.

The aforementioned concerns regarding debate location, of course, raise the question of whether there is such a thing as a glass being exactly half full or half empty, or whether a glass may only be of a certain state of fullness relative to other states. This blog entry shall not enter such philosophical territory, but the reader should find worthwhile the pursuit of an answer to that question.

Thus concludes my thoughts on an issue I believe to be far more complex than most people admit or realize.

I listen to people banging rocks together. Back from when music was GOOD.





if you were true fans to bionicle you would support it's return you are not fans if you don't want it to come back even if you followed the entire story and loved them and bought every set and had joined a website with a large fanbase for them and made tons of friends and talked about bionicle every day and then when it ended you moved on to hero factory and don't want bionicle to come back you aren't a fan then because you thought it was going downhill and didn't like every single little aspect of it and you don't want it to come back and you aren't petitioning lego like mad and throwing temper tantrums left and right and aren't carrying on bionicle's revolutionary legacy means you are all traitors to those who want their most favorite toy back we know our fantasy will come true because we are here we are waiting and we want our bionicle and if star trek fans had as a group said no point in talking about this anymore it's never going to come back it never would have come back and lego is pushing their poorly designed and overpriced hero factory in little kids faces bionicle didn't need it so we have evidence to prove that our toy line which we simply cannot live without is going to come back because we will hold our breath and storm denmark if we don't get our way which we will because we always get our way and get what we want even if it comes back in ten years we can ask for the entire new line of bionicle for our thirtieth birthday and when bionicle comes back we'll have plenty of money to buy them because we didn't betray bionicle and buy hero factory like you all did you annoying little black hearted meanies who call yourselves fans when you're not you stinky shoe wearing snobs who don't agree with the movement to bring bionicle back
