Sixty SymbolsI'm obviously not a physicist, astronomer or astrophysicist for that matter, and could never be one (since I have big holes in my scientific/mathematical education, and I just chose a different profession) but I love Sixty Symbols channel in youtube. They are so passionate about what they are talking about, and its just so interesting! and they make it simple and equationless!!! AND many times funny! the imagination it requires!!! I can't stop myself from watching one after another (many times I dont get some things though... but I refuse to feel dumb. Im just undereducated in certain fields, as everyone is. It does not make me find it less interesting).Sixty Symbols5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I can't quite define my obsession... maybe obsession is an enough word for it.
I Sixty Symbols procrastinate.
I Sixbolscratinate? hm... not a very good word, but I'll use it anyway.
Professor Ed Copeland has such a paced and soft voice...

Dragon Age: The Silent GroveI just bought the last 2 issues today (I missed them when I was in hospital, and then I sort of lost interest).Dragon Age: The Silent Grove11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I kinda want to slap Alistair for being so rude to the lady in the end. She didn't do him anything, what the hell was wrong with him? Now I will never know her secrets
I have a feeling what Alistair did was somehow related to the Dawn of the Seeker's events. Because dragons.
Anyway, David Gaider is a big troll, because we found next to nothing new about the dragons (except that they were sleeping, guarded by witches, and witches need king's blood to awaken them, but we don't know why they must be awoken now), nothing new about Alistair, except that he can be a dick sometimes, but we knew it already after Landsmeet (I still love him, but he's a dick sometimes, nothing can be done about that, blonde human LI are just like that). Comic also doesn't explain why we meet dragons in Ferelden, in Deep Roads, in Kirkwall -- everywhere! -- if they are hidden in the silent grove. Wit
Thoughts on the ME3 Ending DLC *SPOILER-FILLED*Yesterday I downloaded and played through the ending DLC. While I could only offer a few flailing and inarticulate meeps of protest to my boyfriend after finishing it, a day of gathering my thoughts and seeing other people's reactions on various forums has allowed me to put them down in words.Thoughts on the ME3 Ending DLC *SPOILER-FILLED*11 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was in response to someone on the Bioware forums posting a link to a Youtube video of the Renegade control ending (which I hadn't seen before) that this outpouring finally erupted, so please view the beginning in that light.
*shivers* I already thought control was creepy. Even as a paragon, I can't help but see Shepard as, in tens of thousands of years, becoming essentially the next starchild. There's enough humanity left in her to go mad with that kind of power, that immortality. Paragon or renegade, you're still setting your Shepard up not as a figure of hope and cooperation, or of strength and leadership, but as a hopefully benevolent god with cont

I'm working on my second playthrough of Mass Effect 3 at the moment--my horribly, terribly, incredibly evil and despicable renegade by the name of Aven. (I pretty much yell, "I'M SO SORRY!" at my TV screen about every other cutscene. I'm terrible at being renegade. Lol.) I just noticed something today, and I couldn't resist writing a little journal post about it.
I really, really dig the random little stories of the various Citadel people that you can overhear. I think it's so neat that there are completely un-interactive story elements that really feed into the environment and provide these tiny, personal moments of life amidst this huge, sweeping conflict. So rad.
I got the full stories of most of them on my first playthrough, but just today I got the full story of the Salarian soldier and the female human outside of Purgatory. I actually got kind of teary-eyed. It was so randomly touching! I totally love it; it's now my favorite one.
My (very) close second favorite story is th

But the sequence of events I just experienced in Skyrim have made me question my own reality.
I hope you're bored, because this will undoubtedly become long winded.
After playing ME3 for weeks, I decided to go back to Skyrim. Some of you might remember that before ME3 came out I was having a hard time finding a skyrim husbando. When I finally did, he left me waiting at the alter for two days. Yes, two days. Then after the vows he RAN OFF. After some searching I found my lizard lover and ordered him to my home to make tasty foodstuff and collect money for me. After some misadventures involving a lot of cabbage and some barrels, I returned to my breeze home only to find it empty. This worried me. It had been days since I ordered my husbando to the kitchen and he was yet to appear. Concerned, I began to trace the path he would have taken to get to me, imagining finding him left
