The Synchrosphere

To keep you busy (until 2012) check out this amazing post at the Stygian Port: Opening the Stargate, at the end it says "to be continued", I LOL'd! Also check out Secret Sun, CK is on fire and even had to start a sister blog The Solar Satellite, and don't forget my main man Michael Skaggs' latest awesome posts at Hidden Agendas.

The Dedroidify Power Supply

The power supply of my backup pc just died too, just before a 10 day hard work period at my mom's to pay off some of my debt. Seeing the humor of it right now, things can only get better from here... Typed this on my Ipod Touch, last piece of working tech on which i can only type short posts. The good news is I have one draft (fixed!) I can schedule for tomorrow, lol. 2009... I hope my birthday on the 26th this thursday helps turn my luck around.

Lightning fast update: And it did even sooner, got my hands on a power supply near-instantly, installed it right away and to my amazement for the first time a power supply died I don't have to reinstall windows and everything is still operational, and this is like what, the sixth time this has happened to me in my long computer history. Let's hope this one lasts! Awesome! I have the Power!

update 2: Thank you Justin!

Mr. Spock Quotes

Mr. Spock, half human (mother), half vulcan (father). Spock did not originally have the logical manner that would be associated with the character, this instead being a trait of the character Number One (Majel Barrett) who was dropped in developing the second pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before" (1966). This episode presents a more fully-formed Spock, with his trademark logic. Nimoy liked the character's newly logical nature, observing that the character is "struggling to maintain a Vulcan attitude, a Vulcan philosophical posture and a Vulcan logic, opposing what was fighting him internally, which was human emotion."

So in other words, Spock has a fully functional circuit 3, which is more than you can say for half our planet.

"Nowhere am I so desperately needed as among a (Earth-)shipload of illogical humans."

"My guess (2nd circuit emotional) doctor, would be meaningless. I suggest we refrain from guessing and find some facts. (3rd circuit rational) Spock out."

Kirk: You didn't really think I was going to beat his head in, did you?
Spock: I thought you might.
Kirk: You're right.

Kirk: Well, Mr Spock, if we can't disguise you, we'll find some way of explaining you.
Spock: That should prove interesting... (later:)
Kirk: My friend is obviously Chinese. I see you've noticed the ears. They're... actually quite easy to explain.
Spock: Perhaps the unfortunate accident I had as a child...
Kirk: The unfortunate accident he had as a child, he caught his head in a mechanical ... rice picker.

Kirk: At times you seem quite human.
Spock: Captain, I don't think that insults are within your prerogative as my commanding officer.

"I have never understood the female capacity to avoid a direct answer to any question."

Kirk: Well, there it is - war. We didn't want it, but we've got it.
Spock: It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.

"After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true."

"Judging by the pollution content of the atmosphere, I believe we have arrived at the late twentieth century."

Spock: To hunt a species to extinction is not logical.
Gillian: Whoever said the human race was logical?

"Are you sure it isn't time for a colourful metaphor?"

McCoy: I'll tell you one thing, Spock. You never cease to amaze me.
Spock: Nor I, myself.

"I am what I am, Leila, and if there are self-made purgatories, then we all have to live in them. Mine can be no worse than someone else's."

Gillian: Are you sure you won't change your mind?
Spock: Is there something wrong with the one I have?

Fascinating is a word I use for the unexpected. In this case, I should think "interesting" would suffice.

"What we require now is a feat of linguistic legerdemain and a degree of intrepidity."

"What you want is irrelevant, what you have chosen is at hand."

"Logic, logic, logic. Logic is the beginning of wisdom, Valeris, not the end."

The Office: "Prince Family Paper"

Synopsis: Michael and Dwight spy on a rival paper company. The rest of the office debates whether or not Hilary Swank is hot.

Jim: "I think all of us have a tendency to view celebrities as sort of mythical figures, you know, we don't really see them as real, so therefore we don't judge them as real people."

Kev: "Are you sirius? Jim, just show us a picture!"

Jim shows Kev a picture, inside his head! He takes Kev into a little guided meditation to persuade him to say Hilary Swank is hot, but he botched up... cause Kev making out with Swank & her being hot is obviously not the same thing. Even Kev realizes that. In the end, more people say she's hot than hot, cause I guess it's the least you can do for the woman. Hillary Swank e-primely seems pretty repulsive to me, but then again so do most of these celebrity women, photoshop help them in the name of futility.

"She looks like a monster!" Kev

Oscar: "Yes, she's attractive but she's not hot." Seriously? I'd just say she's symmetrical. Divine ratio hot or not ;).

Stanley: "I am trying to be more optimistic in life. I've got what, 20, 30 more years left and my family history says, I have less. Now the old Stanley Hudson would have found something to complain about with this actress, but that's no way to live life! Look at this healthy, sexy, pretty, strong young woman. Come on people! She... is... hot!"

Ah optimism vs pessimism. Here's a few things I can't help sharing, especially cause Stanley is abusing his optimism ;p Balance!
Optimism: + open, learning, exploring, enjoying, appreciating - liking too much and sharing it to the point of annoyance, getting yourself and your buddies into crazy shit cause you didn't respect the risks, being unbelievably careless cause you think everything will be ok anyway.
Pessimism: + critical, evaluating, careful, risk-assessing and trouble-avoiding - ruining your and everyone's day for the sheer possibility of... negativity, not giving much a fair chance, seeing more limits instead of possibilities, for god's sake stop bitching ;p.
Any observations of your own? I'd love to read 'em.

At the end, everyone still holds their initial opinion
Oscar: "That's the thing about debating, people are just entrenched in the view they had in the first place."
Pam in the crowd: "When I was talking, you weren't listening..."

Belief System Territoriality, or why debating is futile as hell.
RAW helps out.

Btw, interestingly, this episode was called Prince Family Paper. Royal Bloodline Money? Talk about the sirius mythical hollyweird family! The episode was supposedly called that way because Michael and Dwight spy on a rival paper company.
Before they go in, Dwight and Michael goof around a bit in the car. Following other synchromystics noticing lights in the background, (and today too from aferrismoon!) check this out:
Notice car to the left of Dwight with the solar reflection.
Bob head in front of it.Move head back, hello again light.
Hey the light moved into the headrest of Dwight's seat.

Prince Paper=PP=16 16=7 7=OZ.

From the Blob: "Aleister Crowley starts of this small ZO/OZ synchromystic collection as he wrote Liber OZ/77, 77 having the same numerical value as 'Goat Boy' Pan in Hebrew/Kabbalah."
With the winged disc of his car logo in view all the time, Michael Scott says: "There is something in nature called the food chain. It is where the shark eats the little shark, and the little shark eats the littler shark and so on and so on until you get down to the single cell shark. So now, replace sharks with paper companies and that is all you need to know about business."

Later Michael wrecks his winged disc chariot when attempting to drive away, and the nice family help them out taping the thing so they don't have to get it towed. Even offering coffee.

With some hexagons in the chariot next to theirs. "The hexagon is also mentioned alot in his videos because of it's connection to bees and that a Cube has 6 sides, and 8 vertices. So the stargate symbol can transform from hexa to octo and still be a cuboid representation." Stygian Port. Of course any symbol can be interpreted in many ways, this one for example from bee-hive mentality to whatever you can come up with.

"It's bee-znez, it's not personal!" Dwight
"I'm not a shark..." Michael feeling guilty

When Michael gets congratulated cause Dwight got the nice family company's customer list to their boss, we see a little cube on the desk. After which Michael finishes the episode with:
"I guess this is what they call a bittersweet moment, it is bitter cause I slightly destroyed a wonderful little family, but sweet because David Wallace thought I did a great job. That's why I hate bittersweet chocolate, I don't even- what's the point of that, why not just sweet? I mean who, who are you helping?" Indeed, bizniz whores. Who are you helping?
