Blah, Yuck

Slammed

I stopped on the way home from work to give blood last night. I kept missing my chance at work because of vacation of having a cold/flu.

Emily got the alarm thingy fixed. I'm not sure exactly how to fix the light fixture thing. Seems like its going to be a bit of a mess. It will probably have to wait till I can get to it in the daytime, as I'll probably have to turn of the power so I don't blind myself/kill myself.

At least I get a free lunch today. Section meeting. Its also payday. Nice. At some point I think I'm going to pick up a new computer. None of the new cool games run on it. I started looking through some customize a computer and buy it parts on dell just to see what they have and I don't really know what I want. Some of it just seems insane. Normally I'd say get as much memory as possible. Okay 64gb is only $48,000 extra. Holy cow.

Feeling very tired and unmotivated this morning.

Whine

Of course, the law has not been passed by the senate and signed but, the house passed a law to prohibit banks and credit card companies from making payments to on-line gambling sites. They can make payments to 'brick and mortar' gambling sites. Why not internet? Sure gambling is addictive. So?

Why can credit card companies make payments to internet tobacco sales sites? Tobacco is addictive too. Why? I would guess that the indian casinos have effective lobbyists, or the tobacco industry gets worse press.

Why do they feel this is the most critical item facing the nation? Do they not work on the most important things first? Who sets the agenda?

Unaffected
Result: 30. Your score isn't an achievement, it just is.
Psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen and his colleagues at Cambridge's Autism Research Centre have created the Autism-Spectrum Quotient, or AQ, as a measure of the extent of autistic traits in adults. In the first major trial using the test, the average score in the control group was 16.4. Eighty percent of those diagnosed with autism or a related disorder scored 32 or higher. The test is not a means for making a diagnosis, however, and many who score above 32 and even meet the diagnostic criteria for mild autism or Asperger's report no difficulty functioning in their everyday lives. You scored less than 32. Make your own assessment of that
