Sliding towards insanity

The life (or lack thereof) of a UMD Computer Engineering major graduate

So, once upon a time, this random assclown put up The Official Ninja Webpage, which is hilarious in and of itself in how utterly bad it was. A friend of mine showed me this parody a few weeks ago, but I kept forgetting up post it. It's caused at least three engineers to fall out of their chairs laughing now.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to flip out and write some MATLAB code.

Went to the International ANSWER protest in DC with my girlfriend on Saturday. Was pretty good, there were a lot of different groups out. It was supposed to be an anti-war in Iraq thing, but there were a lot of other issues that were brought up that I wasn't as supportive of. I'm all for impeaching Bush, but there was some radically pro-Palestine stuff I wasn't so big on. Overall, a lot of yelling, a lot of cheering, a lot of chanting, and a lot of walking.

The best part had to be the counter-protesters. We saw these guys getting onto Constitution Ave. (that's a Yahoo! picture I pulled off a new site, but I've got a good shot of them I'll upload in a few days). Some guy thought the "Support President Bush; Trust Jesus" sign was the funniest thing he'd ever seen and offered them $50 for it. The bible thumpers were not impressed...

On a side-note, I started getting into Shadowrun: Duels. It's an interesting idea, and the rules don't seems bad. Haven't actually had a chance to play, but I may start asking around. Dream Wizards in Rockville apparently has some people who play, might check them out soon, if not over Winter break. I got the Liada figure off eBay, and looks a lot like the Street Mage archetype in SR3. Right now it's sitting on my desk above my monitor, and it looks pretty spiffy. I think it'd be worth it as decor even if I don't get a chance to actually play the game.

Anyway, time for homework. CMSC351 here I come.
