What has helped you keep your faith over the years?

I’ll admit that the idea of “faith” has always been beyond my ken. Perhaps this is a hardware deficiency (more on that another time). In any event, I will answer a similar question: What are some things that have helped … Continue reading

How smart am I really?

Been meaning to collect my notes on the topic. I have a selfish interest in psychometric testing that arises from the inferiority complex and dissonance that, in turn, comes from being a smart guy who can’t function as an adult. … Continue reading

I am a neoreactionary hate machine

A blog called Habitable Worlds has charted the topology of the dark enlightenment (H/T Heartiste: Author commentary on-site. The center-of-mass of my reading habits falls at the incenter of the triangle HBD, Christian traditionalism, and secular traditionalism. Another link brought … Continue reading

Alternative theory

This whole Rubio thing is a push by a small, influential subset of the media is to “shake things up” so nobody notices the real reason Texas goes blue in the next election. Can’t keep the lid on this pot … Continue reading

Internet’s working again

Being the resident IT guy can be a pain. Anyway, I have time to get a couple of posts up today. I owe my brother a post on an extracurricular activity, and I owe hellhammer a response at the Neanderhall … Continue reading

Insightful

And uncharacteristically straightforward: Anyway, the Bomb Brothers have been an unpleasant intrusion of reality into the state-of-the-art marketing campaign for amnesty. As I’ve occasionally noted, marketing is the dominant type of work in 21st Century America, and journalism is slowly … Continue reading

Math study plan (Part 3)

As of this moment, I’m working my way through “Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences” by Mary Boas, which I recommend. However, my TT “event” caused me to forget many of the ideas and skills I’d acquired in public school … Continue reading

Math study plan (Part 2)

That purpose laid out (though not to my satisfaction), here is my current four-prong method: I schedule regular reading for the comfort of home or a coffeeplace. During this time I overdose on coffee and shut myself off from the … Continue reading

Math study plan (Part 1)

I still study math as regularly as I can because it seems almost criminal to let all that accumulated knowledge rot when I could conceivably attain an autodidact’s Ph.D.-equivalent basis of understanding simply by another decade and a half of … Continue reading

I need an analogous situation to this

On the subject of discipline in vibrant LA schools: How about afterschool detentions doing humiliating litter pick-up in front of other students under the domineering command of an assistant football coach? It’s not as if the human race has zero … Continue reading

In a local emergency, text, don’t call

The only lesson from the over-reported incident in Boston. Seriously people. The same day, there were probably a dozen accidents on I-94 alone worse than this. Not newsworthy except as FUD.

Hmm…

Weird thing happened: I’ve decided to move back to Aeoli Pera. This is a pretty strange thing for me, because I’ve done a lot of moving around on the internet before now. Psychological speculation abounds! I like this layout better, … Continue reading

New preposition: re

This is a descriptive addition to the lexicon rather than prescriptive, as is my wont. People are already using this on the internet, and I’d love to see it in common use because it’s very…well, useful. Google already has a … Continue reading

Hypergraphia on the TT forum

When it comes to writing, I’m either on or off. I’m either writing 8 pages of speculative blather per day or nothing much at all. (Speculative blather is an extreme forte of mine, as you may have noticed.) This leads … Continue reading

The “first-world problems” meme is white guilt

This is a quick observation, and not particularly insightful. Still, you ought to be informed. As far as zeitgeists go, WASP male guilt is proving to be very strong indeed. Perhaps the strongest social force in the world as it’s … Continue reading

Envisioning a better version of myself

I posed an exercise to the TT subforum in the Neanderhall. If your interested in this sort of guided exercise try to think of someone similar to yourself, but better. Someone who inspires you to be a better version of … Continue reading

It’s going to break, because it must, but not yet…

The SWPL CPA has suggested bankruptcy, and sent me some court cases that “support” my position. Clearly, she had not actually read them. Here is my response, for the sake of posterity or something… tl;dr- I will probably consolidate the … Continue reading

Viktor the pit bull

My sister, a CPA, has taken an interest in my debt situation. Being a consummate SWPL, her motivations are suspect. Dog “breeds” are a social construct. The pitbull is just like any other dog! The pitbull is misunderstood! The pitbull … Continue reading

Inside a melon-shaped head

Yup, I was a Cleve Blakemore convert from the moment I hit Koanic’s website. You should have seen my reaction to this post. Anyway, it’s nice to see that the fear of slave revolts is hard-coded in the DNA of … Continue reading

Generalizing an idea: Training a mindset through blogging (but does this work?)

I’ve been tossing around ideas for the nature and purpose of this reincarnation of my blog. I’d noticed in the past that writing causes me to think of the sorts of things I write about, and vice versa. And yet … Continue reading
