I have reached the end of the internet.

I'm not turning back... I brought a machete.

Please be obscure.

The common can survive without your help.

The obscure needs you.

The horror of an era replete with magic (technology) is that your choices matter. You can lose your life in here, gazing blankly into a whispering void. Or you can seize great power... wisdom of ages at your finger tips, should you know the correct incantations (search strings) to seek it. But noone will rescue you from the former, should you get distracted in your quest for the latter.

I don't actually calculate very often, because if this is happening then there is a better notation for it somewhere. But when I do resort to it... It gets ugly and stays that way. A age later, I'm going to go get a haircut.

Alright! I got a new setup for my #FilmPreservation project and I was all set to spend the evening digitizing film, but I have a problem!

I blew the bulb in my amplifier section!

Film projectors make use of optical sound. That sound is delivered by a bulb glowing above a light sensitive circuit, over which the optical soundtrack passes.

No bulb, no sound.

The main bulb in this projector was replaced with an LED, but the sound bulb was left as is.

If we were really logicians this kind of inconsistency would be fatal, because were we to simultaneously believe both propositions P and NOT P then we would have to believe all propositions! Somehow we manage to keep inconsistent beliefs from inhibiting all useful thought. Our personal belief systems appear to be locally consistent, in that there are no contradictions apparent. If we observe inconsistencies we do not crash—we chuckle!

People wonder why I never finished my aerospace engineering degree. It's because the government crawls up your ass even further than they would if you were in the military.
