  1. UPDATE: The pagination can be fixed on a case by case basis.
    If you have a lot of old entries in your blog that don't show up, just let me know (comment below) and I'll re-paginate them for you! Your blog will then be fixed forever...

    Since these blogs don't paginate well when listing the entries, we've changed the way the blogs are displayed.

    Now you can view your blog entries by month, rather than viewing in order, page by page.

    This makes it much easier to find old entries. :)

  2. Well folks, hopefully by the time you read this, the blogs will be ready for action!

    We hope you enjoy this new blogging system.

    You are limited to only one blog now, with unlimited entries.

    We may have lost a few blogs for members that had more than one (we saved one).

    If you like, you can choose a category for your existing blog, by editing it.
  3. Is the universe a PURPOSEFUL randomness?

    I can see a purpose it in now. :alien:

    OK, suppose this universe was created by an intelligent being or even race of beings (I prefer the latter).

    Let's say these beings don't normally physically reside in what we call our Universe.

    Suppose they created it either as an experiment, or for educational purposes, or just for fun?

    The random nature of the Universe they designed would create an infinite number of novelties (see Chaos theory).

    So perhaps the goal was to see what would be created of interest.

    After billions of years of randomness, the Universe became more complex.

    It evolved. It also got more interesting.

    Life began to organize and reproduce and evolve.

    So at that point, the Creators, if they exist, may have decided to VISIT the most interesting parts of their creation.

    They could chose any lifeform(s) to inhabit consciously to experience the worlds they created first hand.

    Of course they have to be careful not to get so caught up in their creations that they forget who they really are!

    And who are they?

    Look in mirror...

    Enjoy! :)
  5. Didn't know where to post this, so I guess my journal will have to do. I recently got bit by a Brown-Recluse spider. In a very inconvenient place. I've spent the last 10 days treating it in a variety of ways. Due to its location it was not only difficult to see and reach, but constantly exposed to bacteria and rubbing.

    Gee, isn't this entry exciting so far? Be glad I'm sparing you the details! ;)

    The point of this entry is to tell you of this great, new invention called Liquid Band-Aid that I used to treat this injury. Once my bite was done draining its puss (see I told ya it would be exciting), I could finally try out the new paint-on bandaid. It took a week for the puss to finally abate, so I've had a liquid bandaid on for 48 hours now.

    It's great, you just add two drops of liquid onto an applicator then just "paint" the thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, dry wound with it, and Voila! You have just put on an airtight, waterproof, transparent bandaid!

    The beauty of this is you KEEP the bandaid on until the wound is healed and the bandaid gets automatically "sloughed" off. During the intervening time, it won't get wet, you can see exactly what's going on under the clear bandage, and it prevents any kind of rubbing against the wound. It bends and flexes just like a layer of real skin, so you don't even feel the bandage on your skin.

    In my case it was the only solution to various problems I was having treating the wound.

    If you're interested in learning more about Brown Recluse bites, which are very, very bad (they're more potent than a rattlesnake!), just google Brown Recluse images. Keep a barf bag handy... Thank God I started treating mine within a day or two. :)

    Have a great spider-bite free day! :)

    UPDATE: I'm finally healed, but I stopped using that liquid bandaid right after I wrote this. It's nothing more than superglue! Which means it's a bitch to get off! Don't really recommend it, unless nothing else would do.
