I can only sort bookmarks for so long before I want to strangle someone.

5,500+ bookmarks. Of course, I only have to sort them once and I can sort them whenever.

In the apparently shared interest of feeling masochistic (studying for 9 hrs straight!) ... why do you have 5k+ bookmarks? What is that cool on the net?

If you want something even more mind numbing than that to do, I once had to read http://www.timecube.com from top to bottom to write a report about the validity of the website. That instructor was a sadist...

Many of them are fan fiction, webcomics, games, the RPG.net photoshop thread and, well, if, over the course of say four years of bookmarking various 'Hey, here's a cool link' links...

Of course, many of the webcomic links are dead or on hiatus.

I'm biased, but I think the author of that 'timecube' website is nuts. The font gives it away, methinks.

I think most people will agree with you there, Narf. Anyone who calls for the genocide of all people who do not know what they believe to be true or calls themselves wise above all humans will generally be seen as having a screw loose.

With all those book marks, do you have any that are really interesting or odd?

I would say that you have a strange taste in ways to waste time online if not for the fact that I am already familiar with most of these... Still, I never before knew that head banging worked without long hair and 80s metal!

And you say you're not a geek. Silly person. You've succumbed already.

...Does that include Ponyville?

I just read the first page of the timecube deal. And I have to say, the author is inhertently wrong by his own logic.
No self-respecting (much less hubristic [is that even a wrod?]) scientist will saimply say "I am right, this the is correct standard of Time", without even presenting what his standard is beyond "Four simoluanteous 24-hour roations".
Besides:
Midnight does not occure simoulanteously with midday, as sunset and sunrise do not occur simoulatenously.
Nor do the latter even occur directly opposite moonset and moonrise.

Additionally, sunset/sunrise and moonset/moonrise do not repeat on a constant temporal scale. Where sunset today was 1853, sunset tomorrow may very well be 1854, as such providing a 24-hour and one minuete rotation. Conversly, sunset could occur at 1852, resulting in a 23-hour and 59-minuete rotation.

Also, his -1(-1)=-(-1) therom is completely debunked. "-1" does not, mathematicall read as "negetive one", but "the opposite of one". He himself, mentions that the mingling of opposites (man and woman to create child), produces an entity. So, the opposite times the opposite creates the entity, in this case, one.

Falling victim to singularity, himself, the author quite wrongly believes that every human being in America worships Christ as God. I know for a fact, I do not, so how can I be group with the singular mass which worships the "queer Jew God" and therefore needs to be executed.

for someone who spent thirty years and a quarter million dollars, as he claims, he sure spends little time attempting to disprove his hypothesis.
Any reasonable scientist's duty is to debunk their own hypothesis, not prove it. When looking for proof, even the tiniest bit of evidence on your behalf completely negates all evidence to the contrary, becuase you ignore the contrary.

Personally, I think the whole thing can be summed up with 'Needs to go back on his meds'.

You dismiss it so easily. Its much more fun to soundly disprove him using his own logic.

~ As a note, I am a Nature Worshipper, myself, and a firm believer in duality. I'm also an evolutionist. Both of these believes came to me not through some flash of intuition, but long, careful, and deliberate thought. (or in the religon case, soul-searching and thought)

I'm LDS. I'm also of the firm belief that religeon and science do not contradict. Only mistakes contradict.

Oh man, that's a golden opening for some people I know....

I'm not sure. I was raised Jewish and I am quite firmly monotheistic, but theologically Wicca and Unitiarianism make lots of sense to me. So I'm kind of a blend. I like nature worship, and I believe in evolution.

I TRIED to read the Timecube thing, really I did.

The problem that I ran into is this. If someone cannot even be bothered to write a coherent explanation of their new, brilliant idea, I cannot be bothered to consider said idea as anything more than drivel, and painful to the brain drivel at that. D:

Grammar is the single deciding factor in my personal beliefs apparently.

The pony thing is the other exception to the things I am familiar with... Perhaps since I have not been able to be a geek in real life, I have been satisfying my geekiness online! And Thanatos, you sound a lot like my report. Only I had to make 5 pages out of a whole lot of text that says pretty much nothing. As a result, my report was mostly pointing out why the author's logic was flawed, largely untestable, and probably from a less than sane mind. I am amazed that you recovered from reading a full page quickly enough to post about it, though!

The only reason I didn't proceed to page 2 was it was on my laptop, which I brought up here, and I didn't want to put that site on a gov't computer.
It wasn't really mind boggling, nor was it complicated. Just, pathetically flawed in too many places to consider it.
I want my ten grand.

I never claimed it to be at all complicated. Just the mind numbing ramblings of a mad man who happens to know how to run a website. To be honest, I did not even mean to link it. The website did that on it's own when I typed in the address.
