Journal Journal: 2016, the WOAT?

Was 2016 the Worst Of All Time?

Eh, that's debatable. I like to think of it as a finale, in a trilogy. 2013 was the preview.

2013 was mired in 6 weddings I had to either be in or attend. I hate weddings like I hate country music, or having a doctor touch your balls during a physical. So that year was awful. Work wasn't particularly great, though I did get an award out of it.

Journal Journal: Greetings, Comrade

Now that Donald Trump is our Supreme Leader, I guess I should start learning Russian.

Right now, all I know is Na Zdorovje. It's a start. On the bright side, I've always wanted to write a depressing 800 page novel. I'll find a silver lining to this election yet.

I know I've really made it when I've got anonotrolls using throwing "SJW" around like they're being creative.

Still waiting to be called cuck or some other unimaginative shit.

Please tell me how hard it is being white in America and all the setbacks you've had.

"Hi honey, what'd you do today?"
"Just looked through every single post online being critical of Trump and posted my unsolicited feedback anonymously."
"Oh that's nice, do you want to have sex?"
"Hang on, there's another one!"

Comment Re:Deal with it. (Score 1) 12

I've been analyzing this thing throughout. Both sides ran flawed candidates, but it's like comparing a brand new Buick with a bent fender to an old Volkswagen on blocks that's missing an engine and has a swastika spray painted on the side. The two aren't even comparable. Still, I think it was enough to get people to stay home. My biggest surprise, as I mentioned though, is that instead of the GOP splitting into a civil war and falling apart, the opposite is happening. The Dems are looking at how to reinvent themselves. I think that's a good choice. I think the people are tired of the same old people in office not listening to them. Still, it makes you wonder, if Congress has a 15% approval rating, why do we keep reelecting them? One of Trumps agenda items is term limits on Congress. I support that. Add that to the list of things I don't think will get done.

Journal Journal: Fuck 12

Donald Trump is President-elect of the United States. There, that explains the title.

Journal Journal: Hey there, Fuckface in 2020

Yes, you. I hope you're sittin' pretty high on the metaphorical (or physical, what do I care) hog. I'll keep this short, but I've noticed that in my 10+ years of Slashdot-journalling, there's one thing I can count on: I never expect this entry to last quite so long, nor do I expect myself to live quite so long. So, let's see who outlives who.

HINT: PROBABLY MY JOURNAL.

Anyway, if you can read this, 2020 karniv0re, you're in one of 3 states:

Journal Journal: Miscellany Across the Spectrum

I don't have anything terribly specific to write about, but lots of little things.

Looking back nearly two years ago provides a pretty good picture of where I'm at. This tidbit from November of 2014 provides some insight:

After re-reading my last journal entry, man. This year has sucked. Shit was bleak.

Journal Journal: Growing in Data Science

I'm taking two classes this semester. Stepping it up from the single-class semesters. I think it'll be ok though. I'm in Intro to Data Science and Bayesian Statistics. Man, a year ago, I was so excited to be in a DS class. And now, here I am, and it feels like bush league. It's because I've been studying this stuff so intensely for the last year, doing things the right way, no shortcuts, doing my own research, listening to DS podcasts, etc. I'm not terribly surprised when our professor is tal

I've always wondered the same thing, so I googled "Can you stand on Jupiter?" Condensed version: at the core is a (??) solid rock and some other stuff, and gasses are so dense and hot, they act more like a liquid. Furthermore, it meets the requirements of a planet; 1. It orbits the Sun 2. It has sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium (a nearly round shape) 3. It has "cleared the neighborhood" around its orbit (credit: http://www.city-data.com/forum...)

Journal Journal: More Cordova Hell

By now, I am desperate.

This fucking app has advanced exactly 0 measurable units in the last 3 weeks. I have tried a lot of things, but I always get stopped a few steps in by more shit breaking. This is insanity.

I'm going to continue documenting my struggle, in the hopes that I figure something out and am able to articulate why this has taken so long.

Journal Journal: Mobile Hell

I've been trying to write a mobile app for about 5 years. What a fucking joke. Nobody even uses apps anymore.

I mean, sure, we use a few. But what was the last app you downloaded that you regularly use? Probably Facebook or Twitter. Probably not Billy Joe's Bait Shack app. You just go to his fucking website.
