A Conspiracy Week of Tweets 2010-10-17

  • My Mother just asked a very good question: "Why were there so many people stationed at Icarus Base?" #sgu #
  • Someone I hadn't seen in ten years told me I hadn't changed. Told her I died in 2003 but I travelled forward from 2001 to be here today. #
  • This post claims it was published six months ago. I finished writing it on Thursday: http://bit.ly/dAinTc #
  • Thanks to @CherylBernstein I'm reading more about the Christchurch Earthquake. I've just learnt: "CERN attenuated with HAARP = not good" #
  • I've also learnt that any local circumcised cock entails that person is a Jewish New Zealander. Conspiracy theorists do like to generalise. #
  • Almost all my correspondence is now up to date. Bed. #
  • Causing the Christchurch Earthquake. #notpaulhenrysfault #
  • Rocking the hometown hate this morning. I'm building up to some epic race traitor-ness for this afternoon. #
  • In a month's time I will have two HDs in my MacBook. Who needs optical drives in a laptop, I say. #
  • Well down, Wellingtonians. You now have a slightly better mayor. Now we must all feel all the more sorry for Christchurch (again). #
  • Well done, not "Well down." This rivals this morning's "ten words of less…" handout blunder in class. #
  • Once again the ACT Party shows itself to the party of no principle whatsoever. #
  • If I were an economist I would call my blog "Cookies and Ponzi Schemes." #
  • So, Hilary Calvert attacks Shane Jones for singing into law exactly the kind of thing her party is insisting be signed into law. #hypocrites #
  • Sign, not sing. Gah, this headcold is doing my spelling in. #
  • Is Patton Oswalt guesting in everything now? Not that I'm complaining; he is very good. #
  • Star Wars weather http://www.tomscott.com/weather/starwars/ (via @Glinner) #
  • Yesterday my March deadline seemed doable. Today… Headcold says "Nah." #
  • My grandparents are currently making a guest appearance in this chapter of my thesis. #
  • Why do I hate MS Word? Because it crashes when I am entering comments into student essays'. That is why. Bloated piece of crap. #
  • Hmm, thesis-related nightmares. #
