Hindi Sign On US Navy Building

There is an old Hindi sign when you look at Google Maps...

Especially in US Navy's
Amphibious Construction Battalion ONE (ACB-1) at 2524 Eniwetok Road, Coronad, CA...

There was a slight conflict in the Europe in the first half of the last century, which made this sign quite a no-no in western countries... Funny they still built it...

Aphorism Of The Day Pt.12

I was just watching Demetri Martin. Person. and in that one he has a joke about half-full and half-empty glasses. It reminded me of my old post. And then I remembered a thing I like to repeat often...

"The life of a pessimist is full of happy surprises."

GMail Vulnerability

Found couple of posts about a vulnerability in GMail. Read. Apparently it should be fixed, but at least check your filters in GMail, just in case.

Bedford (24th of Sep.)
GNUCitizen (25th of Sep.)

Like they say, get FireFox and NoScript. Among the three addons I use anyways.

Narcissism Quote

"The relationship with the Narcissist was too good to be true. They want something from you. When you finally wake up and confront them on their bad behaviour, it's something you do, for yourself. You get it off your chest. When the Narcissist asks how you are doing, they are taking your emotional temperature to see if you are reacting, because they are looking for that reaction from you. When you finally give them a piece of your mind, they're not even listening. It goes in one ear and out the other. They sit, rather impassively, appearing like they are taking it in, but if you do a test, you find that they were not listening at all, because they can not quote back to you, anything you said. So consider that action as an exercise for yourselves. Nothing you will ever say to that person will make a difference."


"Narcissists sniff other people's emotions the way hound dogs sniff blood."

I see this so much. Sometimes in me, too.

Why Is It So Difficult To Puke Where It Won't Bother Other People?

We moved in to a new house couple of weeks ago. This Saturday morning someone puked in our lift. We were out with friends this Friday and were home around 5AM, and the lift was clean. So it was someone who came after us Saturday morning, since Saturday day it was there - right there - on the floor of the lift. Small, non-ventilated space. Why this happens?

Now, you can be a prick and say "you shouldn't drink too much" but this won't solve anything. Accidents happen, people don't know how to handle alcohol. Adults, who have been drinking for years still sometimes have a little bit too much. It's how we handle the overindulgence. I couldn't care less if an adult drinks so much that he/she gets an alcohol poisoning and dies in a pool of vomit. It's your choice, and if you want to kill yourself with alcohol - go for it. It's the common areas I care about.

People who drink too much and feel sick try to keep it all in. This is wrong. If you feel sick because of too much alcohol, your body is saying something to you. It's not healthy to have that alcohol in your stomach. Get rid of it before it's too late. Go to a bush, go to a gutter, go to toilet in the bar, but for the love of Pete, do not puke on the street, floor, bar, driveway, my shoes or the floor in the lift. "But it's not appropriate for a lady to puke in public." Yeah, right. And it's completely appropriate for a "lady" to drink herself so stupid she actually needs to puke? If you drink too much, just go to someplace more quiet where your puke won't bother other people and let it all out. Help with your fingers if nothing else. If you try to keep it all inside until you're safe in your home, these things will happen.

If you overdo it, just empty your stomach. That's exactly what they do to you in the hospital if you pass out and they have to call the ambulance. It is not shameful to puke when you drink too much. It's already shameful enough that you drank too much. Puking is peanuts compared to the 5 promille drunkenness you are experiencing.

Besides, if you drink yourself completely stupid, have to leave the town to go home, and you feel sick. Now, instead of going to the toilet in the bar or outside behind some bushes and puke, this person actually left the bar feeling sick, took a tram or a taxi and felt sick the entire way home. Then walked from the tram a fair bit of a walk home or less from a taxi, and felt sick the entire way. Found his/her keys while feeling sick, got in to the lift feeling sick and then it was too much. Puked right on the floor. This is quite a long time to feel sick. If that person would've just gone to the toilet or behind a bush and puked his/her guts out, he/she could've just gone back inside the bar and drank little bit of ice water and felt much better. The whole way home would've been way more enjoyable. And my Saturday and Sunday would've been less smelly.

And if you do puke on the floor of the lift, have the decency to clean up after yourself the next morning.

Do whatever you want with your body, but try not to annoy other people.

Aphorism Of The Day Pt.11

This might be quite difficult to get, but this is my opinion about those three...

If you let your soul fly against you, it will never arise from even beneath the remains of you.

Directions To Dell Offices

I saw these directions to Dell offices. There's a construction site next to it.
I guess this works as an idiot lock, preventing too dumb people from entering the area...
