| You scored as The Dragon Clan. You are a member of the Dragon Clan! People find you strange, and don't really understand you, but that's because you see things from a unique perspective. You stand back and let others find out things by themselves, and perhaps give a friendly nudge once in a while to get them in the right direction.|

Speaking of which, I need to look up the date for Winter Court. Given all that happened at the Interactive in November, it should be very
interesting. Also, we'll probably get to see the results from Fate of the Phoenix.

|Venus fly pedia
Nothing seems to ensnare me like loosely related information. Readying through wikipedia on a subject I recently encountered (see previous post), I ran across the Breaching Experiment.
'The inexplicable do-gooder': Social science researcher Earl R. Babbie writes that "it is a social rule that ordinary citizens should not pick up garbage from the street, or mend street signs, or otherwise fix problems." Babbie claims that people have negative reactions when they see somebody fixing something that isn't 'their job' to fix.
I found that interesting.
I'll escape this trap... Maybe I should visit Arizona.. Haven't been there for a while... But now I'm being vulgar. :) Current Mood: enthralled
|No, I don't want to be your friend
I feel special. Today I got my first LJ troll. Over the last while I've picked up a few barnacles, a couple of people from who-knows-where that have added me for who-knows-why (I'll get around to asking sometime), that don't reply to my posts, but they're at least people, so they're ok. No no, this one's different. A journal created today, added about a 100 friends within *1* hour
, around a specific interest, and then started to post offensive material specifically targeted at that interest. Yep. No redeeming virtues that I can see.
I've always heard of trolls, and I've met some people who display troll-like behavior, but never one so single minded as this. So I now know how to use the ban_set LJ console command. It's cool!
What a great way to say "No, I don't want to be your friend."
Incidentally, the question cropped to my mind, "Why do trolls troll?" Unfortunately this has got me mired in wikipedia reading all sorts
of interesting stuff.

Meow Wars indeed. I missed so much stuff back in the day before I had internet. :) Current Mood: happy

Sorry to everyone who's emailed, messaged, written, knocked on my door, reported me to missing persons, checked the obituaries for the last week, etc. :)
I've been rushing to get some research done. *sigh* wonderful thesis work... I had hoped to be 1/4 to 1/2 done by the end of the summer, and with all the setbacks we've run into my thesis isn't even at the "actually started" stage. So yeah, since a Wednesday meeting a week and a half ago I've been doing the whole research marathon thing (research, sleep deprivation, eat-on-the-run, etc) until I finally crashed this weekend. Now it's time to catch up on email and to let people know I'm still alive. :)
and then back to the research.... Current Mood: exhausted

You are a Spiritualist. Your magic flows from the
primal forces of the cosmos. You could be a
gentle Healer, a miraculous Prophet or a
spirit-summoning War-mage with the strong link
your soul provides to the realms beyond
reality. You have preternatural abilities,
intutively sensing the personality of people
you meet and discerning events yet to happen.
You enhance your aura with meditative pursuits.
You are a good judge of character but your
idealism or morality can confuse others. Which Magical Order Are You In? brought to you by Quizilla
|Is it really so strange?
Twice now, when I've heard about something bad happening to one of my friends, I've felt bad because of it. When I expressed this, twice was I met with astonishment. A question asked: "It doesn't affect you, why do you feel bad?" Is it unusual to be sympathetic when something bad happens to your friends? Or am I just such in an unusual quantity? Why is it unusual? Do we truly live in a cold, uncaring world? Is my warmth that unique? Is it really so strange? Current Mood: contemplative

|Incorporating Kung Fu into your daily life
Ah, fireworks. So, there we were adding fire to more gunpowder at one time than is overly safe, and I discovered that the footwork in Tiger Escapes can be very useful in getting away from fireworks going horribly wrong.
So yeah, I got quite a bit of practice. :) Current Mood: amused

|It doesn't make any sense...
I just don't understand how I can do 500 calf raises in class, and be fine, but I do 200 at home, and my calves hurt and cramp for days.
1) I do calf raises slower by myself.
2) The air quality is bad in my apartment compared to the kwoon.
3) Even though I did more cooldown stretching at home, maybe I didn't do enough warmup stretching. Current Mood: confused

You'd turn into a Snowleopard! Like a snowleopard
you are quiet, shy and not seen much and find
it hard to talk to people, but dont really mind
being by yourself. However once you have gotten
over your shyness and are relaxed you are so
different it can be scary! You have a few close
friends who can grasp your strange ways. You
are generally laid back but when you get angry
you get angry and can be very vicious and a
force to be recond with, though few people ever
see this. What animal would you turn into? brought to you by Quizilla Current Mood: sleepy
Wow... I've managed not to add anyone I haven't met. That's gotta be unusual as far as LJ users go.

|How to make a crazy_john|
1 part intelligence
5 parts silliness
Blend at a low speed for 30 seconds. Serve with a slice of caring and a pinch of salt. Yum!
Wow. This quiz is so insightful that it knows that 5 parts of me are made from something unidentfiable by man. Now, as long as no one replaces that with Tar, I think we'll be ok.
