hello blog

I didn't feel like blogging and I was very lazy because of the one week break. I also lost my 30 GB iPod... I realized that right when I was free, the last day of school before the break, when I got home. I hate and I don't understand the ironic smile of my teachers right after I ask them if they know anything about my iPod. I also didn't blog because I was very sick. I'll blog more these days because I'm much more active when I go to school (probably the only good thing about school) and I finished F.E.A.R. so I have much more time.

Are you sure you're supposed to be a boy/girl?

I had this weird biology assignment about a girl who was supposed to be a boy. The doctors discovered that while trying to find out why can't she have babies. Because of some chromosomes she was born a girl instead of a boy how she was supposed to be and she looks like a regular girl but she can't have babies and she doesn't have pubian hair.

Valencrap's Day

Saint Valentine's Day is on February 14. It is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other; sending Valentine's cards, candy, or donations to charities, often anonymously. It is very common to present flowers on Valentine's Day.

But wait! what's love?

Love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection or profound oneness. Depending on context, love can have a wide variety of intended meanings. Romantic love is seen as a deep, ineffable feeling of intense and tender attraction shared in passionate or intimate attraction and intimate interpersonal and sexual relationships. Love can also be conceived of as Platonic love, religious love, familial love, and, more casually, great affection for anything considered strongly pleasurable, desirable, or preferred, including activities and foods.

Oh really? Now I see why people fall in "love" so easily. I'm always and probably I'll always be amazed how indifferent and ignorant can people be about things from which they don't benefit at all. I don't mean donations and stuff like that, I mean every day behavior, small things. People simply don't care about anything that doesn't affect their life in a good way or in a bad way. People you think they have a good heart because of good things they do, they probably do them because they think someone sees them. I was so angry one day because of this and I wrote these thoughts because I saw so many ignorant people in a short time. It's an ignorance and an selfishness which I often associate with wickedness. I'm sooo sick of it. Can people really love with that attitude? I highly doubt that. Love. It's a strong word, isn't it? It's because it changes things not because it's a strong feeling. If, somehow, it's a strong feeling, it's a feeling given by what? It's a feeling given by what people SEE. It's a feeling based on something that a real feeling like LOVE could never occur because it takes time to discover all the reasons why a person potentially loves another person. The "love" it's based on idiotic things like: "OMG she looks so hot!", "That guy right there is so strong and handsome!! What's his name again?" I find absolutely idiotic how smart people "fall in love" with persons they know for 5 minutes. People need to learn how to love, they learn to love after they have some unpleasant experiences by falling in love with people for retarded reasons followed by knowing the person better and knowing it doesn't match you at all, it only matches your imagination and your idealism, until you know who you're really talking to. I'm ashamed of my way of rapidly judging someone by their appearance. This it's not fair, but it's so human - to judge things and persons so easily, we were born with it. It's not their choice if they look ugly in my opinion but if they don't match my fashion tastes it's probably because I don't understand it and because I haven't lived in the same environment as they have. Valentine's Day is rubbish until you truly LOVE a person and that involves knowing that person and knowing why you love him or her. I don't think it's necessary to remind the other reasons for which people "love" and I'm not even going to talk about "lovers", the persons who seek persons of opposite sex 24/7 - one of the most retarded category of humans, destroyed and broken-hearted. I almost dropped a tear. Girls have expectations from their "prince" like in fairy tales. You can't even imagine what expensive things girls expect and how far their imagination goes. Boys don't really care, they don't have money and time for that, another good reason to hate "love" as a boy. Enough said, Valentine's Day is rubbish for most of the people and will remain the same as long as people love for no good reason and as long as it's commercialized like it's not every year.

Go home and khufu your mother!
We were talking about the Great Pyramid of Khufu and we couldn't pronounce that word.

Groping in front of the computer screen

I can stare at the computer screen for hours and hours and hours... The accumulated hours are since March, last year.

My English assignment

Deciding upon your future is not an easy task. Too many options make life easy and hard at the same time. It's good when you have many options and you know exactly what's your choice but many options are bad when it's hard to make a decision. The best way of being successful in life is choosing what you like and what satisfies you. If you chose what you don't like you make your life harder because people do a quality job and are more productive when they do things they like. These factors should be taken into account when deciding things that change your future.

Firefox extensions

So, these are my favorite Firefox extensions.

A Romanian 'invented' a new way of using the emoticons in Yahoo Messenger. He copies and pastes on yahoo messenger the lyrics of a song and replaces the words that can be replaced by emoticons. He pastes the lyrics as the song plays to impress his girlfriend. Big deal. That's not an invention. He appeared on a online Romanian website for news and he was even contacted by a yahoo representative.

Romanian Student Invents Yahoo Messenger's Emoticoncert
7 Februarie 2007

Darius Groza, a Romanian student was congratulated by Yahoo! Inc bosses after inventing what he called Emoticoncert.

The Romanian’s invention consists in creating a video clip in which a song is played, based on a yahoo messenger window using Yahoo’s emoticons to depict the situations the song is about.

The Romanian student is 21 years old. He studies Journalisms and public relations at the Cluj University Babes-Bolyai".

'”Congratulations on your creation! It is truly original and very intelligent, said Francois Dufour, manager Yahoo! Messenger manager for the United States, in an email sent to Darius Groza.

''They told me they want to develop and integrate the concept in Yahoo Messenger , so that anyone can make an Emoticon on any kind of song, Groza said .

He added that he would like to collaborate with Yahoo and not sell his idea.

Emoticon is a brand created by Yahoo in the 90’s anii '90, using graphic signs to depict a certain emotion or state of mind.

Stumble Upon, school and the phone of the future

I'd like to talk about my favorite Firefox extensions but I'm sure I'll not have enough time. The reason? School. I HATE SCHOOL!!!!!!! Before I continue I want to add something:

It's okay to hate school:
There is nothing wrong with you.
If you hate school, parents and teachers might be quick to label you as 'troubled' or 'defiant' or diagnose you with a bunch of disorders. Nothing could be further from the truth.

There is nothing wrong with hating school, there is nothing wrong with hating being forced to go someplace you don't want to, and being "taught" things you're not interested in, in ways that would kill you if boredom were lethal.

You're not worthless if you don't get good grades, and you're not mentally ill if the mere thought of school scares you.

In fact, you're probably a lot more sane than someone who has a nervous breakdown if they don't get an A+.

They say school is for learning? Well, being bored is hardly any way to learn anything! No wonder hardly anyone remembers what they were forced to memorize at school. School isn't about learning, it's about training people to be obedient to those with authority over them.

Don't trust school to 'educate' you - only you can be trusted with that!

This psychologist has a message for kids who hate school:
I, as an adult and a psychologist, want to say to any children out there who hate school: you are not alone. Most people hate it too, but usually they don't feel entitled to say so, and many can't bear to think about it so they hardly even know how they feel. You are not mad – you don't have a Deep Psychological Problem (though you might develop one if you stay in school against your will!); and you are not bad for wanting to live your life the way you choose, doing what you think right – that is what everyone should be doing. You are not the problem: coercion is the problem. Being forced to go to school is the problem.
I hate all the workaholics I see everyday, they are so retarded that they love self-torture! A kid said these days: "It hurts so good!" They're insane! People who can't stop working are insane! and I see them everywhere! I HATE TO BE FORCED TO LEARN THINGS THAT I DON'T CARE ABOUT AND WHICH I'LL NEVER NEED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! I HATE SCHOOL!!!!!

OK... now about the Firefox extension, Stumble Upon it's a really good extension because it helps you discover the internet like never before. First you choose what you want to know from various categories (unlike the school where you're forced to learn things you don't care about) and then you click the Stumble! button which is in the Stumble toolbar (installed in Firefox). It takes you to randomly selected websites from all the internet that fall into your categories. The toolbar also has two buttons "I like it" and "No more like this". You can spend hours and hours with all your favorite content on the internet. Stumble Video is pretty new and it's like the Stumble toolbar but it's a website and, obviously, displays video content. The videos are from Youtube and google video but you can't click them and go to their exact location but you can find them by their title and to make it even harder those from Stumble did something so that you can't even copy and paste the title, so you have to type it to find the video. Why this? Probably they want you to be loyal to their website. I'll write about my other favorite Firefox extensions next time because I need to do the homework. Did I mention how much I hate school? I HATE SCHOOL!!!!!!!

I found this interesting concept of the phone: Turn your fingers into a mobile phone! Maybe first users of this... phone will look pretty goofy but, who knows, maybe this is the future, right here, beyond touch screen.

The shutdown, restart, sleep etc. function in Vista

For all the idiots that still think Microsoft designed Vista with such a small button to get to all those functions just to get on your nerves I have to say something: Microsoft did that instead of the black & white screen from xp because they thought it's faster! In fact, it is! Clicks to shutdown computer in xp: 3. Clicks to shutdown computer in Vista: 2!! It IS small because they don't want you to shutdown the computer by accident! Got it?
