About me: The world is too big, corrupt, and full of surprises. I enjoy observing it and want to DeToxiCate it with my thoughts.
disinterested vs uninterested. the TRUE definition is that disinterested just means unbiased, impartial. but two of my thoughts lead to a what the fuck: why even throw that as a word involving “interest”? along with that, im too lazy to do any pointless research right now but id have to guess that this misuse is common (i googled really quick and im not the only one with this issue of understanding this convoluted english bs. but then again, WYSIATI)
If anything, I’m UNINTERESTED in english but still DISINTERESTED in all languages in general because all languages have their ups and downs

There was a TV drama series starring President Obama and his family. His son randomly appeared out of nowhere on the edge of the Mexican border and he happened to get trapped on that side. Eventually, he somehow came back to the US side with a random mexican only to see his father the President in front of him in the deserted border with a stern look on his face and saying “Son, what have you done!” His son stated “I don’t know…” (Secretly, the son was involved in some illegal drugs and some other dirty doings.) But eventually, President Obama had a sudden epiphany and exploded with a response “I know what to do! You [My son] WILL be the scapegoat for all these troubles”
What troubles? I have no idea. After all, this was just something I dreamt up last night. I think this would be a pretty awesome TV series though, the storyline being the existing President just being the President and having to deal with his corrupt children and maybe other corrupt relatives. I can only imagine the ratings… the views… the criticism… an intense drama series.

"So many rooms to explore but the doors look the same"… damn.. right?
I swear, just after college and even after my first job, this quote continues to haunt me.
I can’t believe that back in college, we’re instructed that we can pick up a major and see what we’re interested in. The shit stays the same even after we’ve picked up a major that we may or may not like because the fact is, we haven’t even entered the workplace. Liking the major may just mean we like reading about it, doesn’t mean we’re going to like the work.
And even once we’re into the workplace, there’s so many options out there… (for me at least). Being a computer science major, I just landed my first job as a web developer and I’m still confused what other parts I can try out. (I could be a computer science researcher, a web developer, a game developer, and other forms of software developers and researchers). So I guess I should rebuild that quote:
"So many rooms to explore but the doors look the same. Even after I got into that door… But we have to also remember we’re in a corridor so even once we enter that room there’s even more doors and we’re screwed."
Mentions to me about “lets work on database optimization together.” But has no idea what he is doing. He suggests that I set a debugging breakpoint and walk through it line by line to see how long it takes by feel.
WELL… about time to quit my job lol.
What you see is all there is. WYSIATI
Now I haven’t read any articles but the developers of candy crush have got skills. They modified the popular game of bejeweled into an even more addicting game by adding one thing: the +skill factor. The players of the game have the idea that they’re progressing through a game and that they’re using some kind of thinking skill to go through it.
Hardly. The human mind cannot predict what candies are going to fall out from the columns. And actually, even before the game starts, you can’t predict how the candies are packaged (where they’re placed). Of course, random appearances are normal but are they really random. The people who make games have algorithms that create these and they can probably adjust the difficulty of that randomness. So the first 10 levels, you beat and take a while and after a while it gets more difficult. Gee, I wonder why that’s happening. Is it because of the additional difficulties (caged candies, jelly to crush, walls to blockade, malformed levels, self-creating walls, etc.)? No, that’s just a way to trick the players into thinking that’s the only difficult part. The creators themselves can easily make you fail the first few levels (or randomly fail) by placing candy and newly created candy into the worst possible scenarios. You would never notice it and you would just fail until that succeed one of the times (and sometimes it’s early) so maybe you think no, I’m sure it takes some skill.
Haha, no it really doesn’t. For one thing, you’ll encounter newer levels (like past the 60’s) where you get a level in which candies will only dip to the bottom through the middle. No human mind, even autistic geniuses (or maybe they can but with trouble) would be able to read how the candies fall in those cases. And you would still think even with random candies being cleared, new ones pop out but they are still part of what the game creators made. And man, they made a good one. Such a popular game with so many levels (over 200) and new ones being added with updates.
Candy crush is devious and genius, deluding players into enjoying the satisifaction of their stupidity. I was also a victim and I still am (because I’m lacking with more interesting games on my phone lol). And I would even say bejeweled takes more skill. It’s more based on time and how good your visual skills are at capturing those patterns whereas candy crush deludes you into thinking the manner of your astute placement matters for shit (it hardly does).
Of course, some of the stuff I mentioned could be wrong and pure delusion on my part. It doesn’t really matter. If I was wrong about the developers forcing you to fail over time, you still have to beat the issue of the ridiculous and random unbeatable placements. A true game would let us know that there is always a possibility for every level. For candy crush, there sometimes clearly isn’t. In any case, they built a nice game that has everyone addicted to it (they could work on the guy who does the creepy voice. If it were Japan, they would’ve put some high-pitched joyous voice which would probably fit candy crush better)
I was driving my car to a restaurant with a close-friend and a semi-friend in SD. Then, from what I remember, we were later leaving some kind of museum or park. While walking, for some reason, my right foot was hooked onto a skateboard and my left was free so I was dragging the foot while skateboarding on a wooden bridge. When we made a left turn, I heard my friend freak out and then when I looked to the sky, it was dark and deep red like hell like nothing I’d ever seen before. A huge hellish totem pole reaching the top of the sky of the earth and about the width of a huge city building started falling down and dropping before it hit the bridge we were on… and… I woke up.
one of the people on my fb friend’s list who i dont really talk to, did try to talk to but the other person makes it difficult and awkward to continue the conversation, is friends with some of my friends.
she posts pictures of her brushing her teeth and her in n out fries.
man, social media and attention grabbing, i just don’t get this shit. next thing you know, she’s gonna be releasing vods of herself sleeping lol wut.
