Just reading good old Wikipedia.
If you've ever heard of John D. Rockefeller, yeah.
It says that he was the first person to ever have more than 1 billion dollars personally. And he died in the 1930's...
So, adjusting for inflation, it's estimated that his fortune equaled 392 to 663 billion dollars...
It says his fortune was equal to 1.5% of the entire US economy of his day.
Holy motherfucking shit.
That is all.
the dad handled it pretty well, if it is indeed real:
Well, I'm quite 99% sure now that the cute Asian kid in English is into me...
Evidence, well, the same original things, first, I have lunch in East Campus, and I've never seen him there, but then all of a sudden, a few weeks ago, he picks me out, and has a quick awkward conversation with me, about nothing really except seeing me at my soccer practice the previous day, and I haven't seen him in East Campus for lunch since, I assume he eats at Main Campus... Suspicious...
So, my mom has suggested that I possibly see a doctor, mostly because I've been so fothermucking tired recently, and because I've most of the time felt, well, not so good.
I ain't quite what I used to be, it seems.
Anyway, she's making an appointment for me to see a doctor.
Well, I guess I'll tell you how I feel.
Hehe look at this quote from this guy's Mormon blog:
Have you ever wondered what a BYU Fraternity would be like? Well, BYU’s comedy club Divine Comedy put together a skit a while ago with their interpretation. Check it out below.
I remember doing crazy things like chugging root beer and staying up all night (no girls in apartment though). My roommates slept on the balcony and in an igloo they built in the snow. Yeah, crazy times. BYU students really know how to live on the edge.
Well, a few people appeared to misunderstand my intent in my last journal...
So I'll clarify here.
My goal is not to eradicate religious faith. Nor to bag on religious people of any kind. My goal is to eradicate religious bias of all kinds.
For example, Mormons. I know a few, and they're mostly awesome people. And I don't disrespect them at all, they're really awesome, really. And one guy is quite cute...
Anyway, I view their decision to abstain from alcohol, (not so much tobacco), all drugs, and especially caffeine, as quite foolish.
Learning a buncha shit from The God Delusion. I love it.
First of all, you guys should read Judges 19:22-29. It's some fucked up shit, right out of the fucking Bible...
Dawkins pointed it out, it's basically about this guy who remains unnamed, traveling around with his concubine, basically fuck-buddy.
And so they stop at this guy's house, and he welcomes them in, and they have a ball and a buncha fun.
I saw that first on Jamie Hubley's blog (which they've taken down, fuck it, it was fucking funny), and I was like STORY OF MY LIFE BRO.
Anyway, not much interesting besides reading The God Delusion, I had something interesting to say, but I don't think I'll have time before my computer shuts off at 11, so I'll put it up tomorrow, when we have a concert, so I won't have swimming, so I'll only be fuckin tired, not mothefucking assraping tired, like usual...
So, a few paradoxes I've been thinking about and trying to solve from The God Delusion, still going through it.
First, there was this guy who said that if m=any real number, then, wouldn't it be right to say m/0=infinity? And, so, if you times both sides by 0, then you get m=infinity times 0.
Well, now, that's interesting. But I'm not sure that m/0 does equal infinity, right?
Cause, that's different from saying, like, you can make an infinite amount of points on a line, or that the amount of prime numbers possible is infinite.
Learning about drugs would be so much easier if they weren't illegal.
It just frustrates me. Cause in Health last year it was practically breaking a rule to say the name of any drug without "is bad" following it.
Because the shit we learned in Health, that frustrates me. I mean, drugs are illegal, so they can't exactly write a glowing endorsement about them, but I know all that scary shit that they show you about "LOOK, LOOK EVERYONE. THIS PERSON SMOKED WEED ONLY ONCE AND THEY THEIR BRAIN TURNED TO MUSH AND GOT HOLES IN IT AND THEN THEY DIED O.O" is obviously un-fucking true.
Wow. Apparently I'm further off the mainstream than I've previously thought... Maybe because I go to high school in a coastal state, a place I imagine is practically falling over left, at least with the people I talk to.
But, I'm generally the left side "morally acceptable" on basically all of those, the only outliers being:
The Death Penalty, one of the most useless things I can imagine, mostly cause it's just used by vindictive asswipes...
A short journal will have to do for tonight.
First of all I love Ron Paul.
Because I don't understand how any Republicans can justify their positions. The Republican beliefs have, to me, 2 directly contradicting major items in them.
So, I'll talk about life.
Life's been, meh. Not so fantastic.
I've been a real blob, lying around the house not doing much of anything fun. And now I have homework. And I need to fucking do some of it, but I'm so unmotivated to do anything whatsoever recently.
Good show, watch it.
I don't know why this one in particular is affecting me more than usual: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/17/jamie-hubley-commits-suicide_n_...
But it is. It's like ruined my whole day :P and I'm just wondering WHY THE FUCK ARE ALL THESE HOT GAY GUYS OFF IN OTHER PLACES TOTALLY OPEN AND THEN DESPAIR FOR LACK OF FUCKING COMPANIONSHIP AND KILL THEMSELVES. I'M RIGHT FUCKING HERE SERIOUSLY.
I mean, Billy Lucas, Seth Walsh, Harrison Chase Brown and now another guy I can't stop thinking his last name is only 1 letter off from our Matthew's.
