Journal: Sasha Shulgin suffers a stroke

Journal by longtailedhermit

This is sad news, and such a genius should not be short on money. And this is a reason why Jersey Shore is a travesty - they do not have money problems while a person who played a heavy influence on the development of North American and European popular culture and society can't afford to pay for medical treatment.

A couple of my friends from the DC area had told me about it so I went.

Journal: Gang Stalking 2

Journal by longtailedhermit

I just stumbled on a website devoted to a supposed phenomenon known as "gang stalking." This activity looks like an urban legend to me. It's just too preposterous to be real. Anyway, this website (or one like it) looks like the source of inspiration for the author of one of the journal accounts that I follow here on slashdot. Sadly, that journal seems to me to be a work of fiction, but it has had a few good moments. If anybody besides myself ever follows that journal, this website might m

I follow some of the blogs here on slashdot. Sometiems they are interesting and I post replies. I posted this as AC in someone's journal the other day. He mentioned something that reminded me of a ring I'd found:
