On tumblr, everyone can hear you whine
brilliantology: benwasser: Being able to sleep at night is important. What we do, and whatever happens to us, it’s crucial that at the end of the day, we can justify it enough to sleep. So why couldn’t I sleep tonight? There isn’t one single thing, and that’s the problem. It’s becoming too much, not for me, but for everyone, and I’d rather not sit around while it continues, so I’ve decided to...

marco: I temporize way too much in conversation. Things that anyone else would say as fact, I will still throw a “probably” or “perhaps” on, because I know there could always be that one edge case where a meteor strikes my neighborhood and I wouldn’t after all be able to make it out that day to Thanksgiving dinner. Check out the later pages, too. I throw my important documents into a...

brilliantology: I installed Oblivion again, partly at the urging of an old university friend of mine who reminded me that trotting around the beautiful ancient forests is quite relaxing. I spent a long while this evening tracking down a bunch of mods that I used to use, and while I haven’t found all of them, I have a fair few that are doing the job. Oscuro’s Oblivion Overhaul Lite (most recent...

nostrich: Something called sector targeting came up on today’s episode of Hustle. (The episode is still available on iPlayer for Brits.) In the most basic terms, it’s a method for getting an edge (not cheating, quite) in Roulette whereby you calculate the speed of the wheel’s spinning, the ball’s speed, and how quickly they were both decelerating, which would give you a rough idea of where...
