Rapture!

It didn't happen! 6:00 p.m just happened 9 minutes ago, and there's been no earthquake or vanishing of people as I can tell. Unless we are in heaven and it just looks like earth...that would suck. Oh well I'm not too surprised. I'm actually glad it didn't happen, because if it had, I would have missed the last episode of House season 7 that comes out on Monday.

It's quite fun...

Being a Nerd/Geek I mean. I think it's also quite funny when people make fun of being a nerd whilst spazzing about Justin Bieber and sports. I don't really understand sports that much, but I don't typically make fun of them. People make fun of my hobbies all the time. "You like reading? Who the heck would want to do that?" Or when people make fun of games and anime. Apparently Super Smash Mario Bros. and Half Life are the geekiest games ever, while Halo and Killzone are not. Who even makes these rules about what is geeky and what isn't? And it's normal to like American cartoons, but not Japanese ones that's just going too far. Seriously just some examples about what's considered nerdy. They can like Twilight, but I can't like Harry Potter. They can like Futurama, but I can't like Baccano. They can enjoy going to the mall and chatting about how styles of clothes have changed, but I can't discuss how countries have changed. I think maybe 'Nerds' just have more imagination than everyone else. There was this girl in my Geometry class who started talking to me because she thought I was shy. This is mainly because I don't typically talk to people who only chat about fashion, gossip, and boys, but I digress. Anyway I decided to humour her, and asked her what her hobbies were. You think this would be sort of a simple question, but she couldn't think of anything besides texting. Seriously? I always hear that nerds have no life, well what the heck are all these 'cool' people doing with their spare time? Texting, talking, watching reality T.V, and dating people they really don't care that much about. That's a life? Well you cool people can keep your bloody life. I think I'll stick to my reading, writing stories, watching my favourite shows, playing games, researching countries, and chatting with like minded people about intelligent topics. Also people reading this should go test your geekiness with this quiz. Bloodwell out.

Vernacular

I have my own language. Examples include

Warbler: Someone who sings a lot.
Rulehound: A person who is obsessed with following the rules.
Redshirt: Someone who is too dumb to live.
Solipsist: Used when adressing a self absorbed person.
Vas?: The German word for what? I'll usually only use it when I'm really confused.
Da: The Russian word for Yes, I actually think i use it more often then the english word.

When I'm cursing I usually automatically switch over to other languages.
German:Scheisse .
French:Merde
Finnish:Perkele
Usually the other languages are when I'm in pain. If I've forgotten something I say Fruck, I'm still not sure when I started saying that.

I also have an odd tendency to mispronounce random words. Like epitome. I know it's pronounced Ep-id-emy, but if I don't catch myself I say Ep-ih-tome. I also say H-erbs and aluminium like the British. Yay personal vernacular. Have an ok day.

Snikt

The sound of a blade being sharpened. Have you ever noticed how some sounds are immensely hard to describe? Also the most immposible thing to describe ever are colours. I've tried it before too. Like blue. I tried describing it with feelings and sound. Soft, Smooth, The sound of waves crashing against a beach, Slow, and gentle. Of course the closest that got was like a light blue... but blue nontheless.

  I also like Animes because some of them are incredibly hard to explain. I mean I watch an Anime called Baccano, and the Summary would probably go... A bunch of alchemists gain the power of immortality, but only one of them knows the formula to make the immortality elixir. One of them goes power mad, and years later in the 1930's recreates the elixir on his own, starting a chain of events that creates more immortals. Some of these immortals, along with a crazy conducter, a group of religious fanatics trying to become immortals, a psychotic killer and his gang, and a group of whiskey sellers all get involved in a crazy incident on a train. Also while all this is going on a girl is looking for her jerkass brother who also became an immortal through odd circumstances. Oh and this entire story in being reported on by a bunch of people who work for a newspaper called The Daily Days. A nice little note is that this story is told entirely out of order and randomly switches back and forth from incidents. The train thing is happening in 1931, the first batch of immortals in 1711, the girl searching for her brother in 1932, and the elixir being re-created in 1930. Fun. Have an ok day.

Invader Zim

  Used to be one of my favorite cartoons of all time. It sucks so much that they canceled it after the second season. My favorite characters actually weren't any of the main characters. Not Zim, Dib, Gaz, or Gir. Not even most of the Secondary characters. My favorites were these two.
Mainly because one, they have the most perfect wtf faces ever.

Two because they are the leaders of an extremly advanced and destructive race, and you'd never guess it. They spend most of their time abusing their power, eating snacks, shooting people they don't like into space, watching puppet shows, trying to get rid of or ignore Zim, and just in general having a good time.

They are tons of fun to watch in their, regrettably, few scenes. I really wish they had had more of these guys on the show. If they made a show about just these guys and their backstory, I would totally watch it. I just keep hoping they'll reboot the show. It's got enough fans now I would think. One thing I think is hilarious is that their the leaders just because they are taller than everyone else.
All hail the Almighty Tallest Red and Purple!

Monster

I'm getting a cleaver like that for my 18th birthday... nope, nothing wrong with me.

Today I will be talking a bit more in depth about some psychological disorders, because they are quite interesting. Brought to you by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders published by the American Psychiatric Association. I'll just list them and note why I'm talking about them


Insomnia- (That's right Insomnia is a psychological problem.)Primary insomnia occurs in up to 10% of adults and up to 25% of elderly adults and appears slightly more common among women.  The cause of primary insomnia can be different for each individual but often involves a preoccupation with the inability to sleep or excessive worry about sleep, which in turns causes the individual to not sleep.The criteria for a diagnosis of primary insomnia include a difficulty falling asleep, remaining asleep, or receiving restorative sleep for a period no less than one month. (I mention this because both me and my mother get bouts of this.) I think it's mainly brought on by stress and worry.

Antisocial Personality Disorder- Also known as Sociopathy. Research has shown that a large percentage of individuals with this disorder have recognizable behaviors prior to age 15. These behaviors include difficulty with authority, legal altercations, cruelty to animals, fire setting, and a dislike or anger toward authority. This disorder is diagnosed much more frequently in males. The symptoms of antisocial personality disorder include a longstanding pattern (after the age of 15) of disregard for the rights of others. There is a failure to conform to society's norms and expectations that often results in numerous arrests or legal involvement as well as a history of deceitfulness where the individual attempts to con people or use trickery for personal profit. Impulsiveness if often present, including angry outbursts, failure to consider consequences of behaviors, irritability, and/or physical assaults. Some argue that a major component of this disorder is the reduced ability to feel empathy for other people. This inability to see the hurts, concerns, and other feelings of people often results in a disregard for these aspects of human interaction. Finally, irresponsible behavior often accompanies this disorder as well as a lack of remorse for wrongdoings. ( This Psychological phenomonon is very interesting for one reason. It's extremely difficult to diagnose. The person usually has to have some record of incidents before 15 to be diagnosed with this. The people diagnose with this are also often some of the most dangerous people in society. "People with antisocial personality disorder typically see the world as having the problems, not him or herself, and therefore rarely seek treatment." Making it rather difficult to get to and help these people before they end up in jail.)

Borderline Personality Disorder-Like most personality disorders, there are many factors that may contribute to the development of symptoms. Because the symptoms are long lasting, the idea that symptoms begin to emerge in childhood or at least adolescence is well accepted. The negative consequences of such symptoms, however, may not show themselves until adulthood.Symptoms are often present in adolescence and almost always by young adulthood. There may be a history of unstable relationships in the person's life and there is a higher than average likelihood of sexual abuse, family violence, and/or neglect in the person's childhood. This disorder is diagnosed much more frequently in females. The major symptoms of this disorder revolve around unstable relationships, poor or negative sense of self, inconsistent moods, and significant impulsivity. There is an intense fear of abandonment with this disorder that interferes with many aspects if the individual's life. This fear often acts as a self-fulfilling prophecy as they cling to others, are very needy, feel helpless, and become overly involved and immediately attached. When the fear of abandonment becomes overwhelming, they will often push others out of their life as if trying to avoid getting rejected. The cycle most often continues as the individual will then try everything to get people back in his or her life and once again becomes clingy, needy, and helpless. The fact that people often do leave someone who exhibits this behavior only proves to support their distorted belief that they are insignificant, worthless, and unloved. At this point in the cycle, the individual may exhibit self-harming behaviors such as suicide attempts, mock suicidal attempts (where the goal is to get rescued and lure others back into the individual's life), cutting or other self-mutilating behavior. There is often intense and sudden anger involved, directed both at self and others, as well a difficulty controlling destructive behaviors.( I chose to mention this one because it's one of the few personality disorders that happens mainly to Women. I also believe that I know someone with this. Yes I'm allowed to pschoanalyze the people I know. You should try it, it's actually kind of fun)


Narcissistic Personality Disorder- ( This'll be the last one I talk about.) The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder revolve around a pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and sense of entitlement. Often individuals feel overly important and will exaggerate achievements and will accept, and often demand, praise and admiration despite worthy achievements. They may be overwhelmed with fantasies involving unlimited success, power, love, or beauty and feel that they can only be understood by others who are, like them, superior in some aspect of life.There is a sense of entitlement, of being more deserving than others based solely on their superiority. These symptoms, however, are a result of an underlying sense of inferiority and are often seen as overcompensation. Because of this, they are often envious and even angry of others who have more, receive more respect or attention, or otherwise steal away the spotlight. Prognosis is limited and based mainly on the individual's ability to recognize their underlying inferiority and decreased sense of self worth.  With insight and long term therapy, the symptoms can be reduced in both number and intensity.( I wanted to mention this disorder, one, because I once again believe I met someone with this, two I think it's kind of sad how these people exist and will no one will see how little they think of themselves because all they can see is the ego.)

Well that's all for now. I like reading up on disorders. They are quite fascinating. Have an ok day.

Ding dong!

The Bastard's dead! Osama Bin Laden finally is dead. Also, we have his body! The only bad thing about that is that they'll probably burn it or bury it somewhere. They should throw it to a crowd of us Americans and let us do what we want with it. YAY! I would probably hang it in my lawn and charge a quarter to let people throw random stuff at it. Large and sharp items encouraged! Then I would take the remaining pieces and grind them up, them put them in pig feed. It would be perfect. I declare that May 1st from now on shall be Eating bacon while hitting pinatas shaped like Osama day. Lovely holiday it'll make... Osama's death day.
