  1. New Years Resolutions

    alright, have your resolutions made it this far? 1. wine instead of beer with dinner, twice a week. FAIL, no wine in 3 weeks 2. quit smoking. MAJOR FAIL lasten a month and a half 3. bicycle to work in less than 25 minutes. getting closer, down to 39 minutes from what started as a 55 minute trek
  2. People hear what they see. Take Hank Williams the III for example: a (predominantly) country band who's members look more punkrock/metalhead in comparison to your typical country act. and a live show often feels more like a rock concert because of this (this might be a bad example, but it's the best I've got.) So even though you might hear "violin prodigy extraordinaire", you see a beggar. I would think that a certain level of avoidance also comes into play here. Where I am from, mass transit locations tend to be somewhat of a safe haven for beggars. you can't walk by transit center in downtown Tampa without a crackhead or bum panhandling you for a dollar or a cigarette . So people often walk buy keeping their eyes to themselves and acting like they are in a big hurry just to avoid shelling out a buck to someone. when you preform a study of this type, in a location of this nature, people are more likely to hold L and R to anything that would make them stop. I would like to see the same study done outside of a busy take out diner around lunch time, where people are still in a hurry, but would also be less inhibited by the "just another person who want's my dol

    ever hear of this guy? http://blog.rifftrax.com/2009/01/31/bacon-stupidity/
  6. All My Hookah Stuff Must Go

    can I get a shipping estimate for the blue mya hose to 33604?
  7. 'ello

    I'm learning all about the hookah, and much faster than I had anticipated thanks to this site and it's members. I'm living in Florida and work full time, and goof of as a musician part time (I'm not that great, warming back up after a 7 month hiatus). Thanks to everyone that has contributed to the knowledge I have received from this site.

  9. Best Food To Die From

    Ever tried a Luther Burger? A pound of ground beef, sharp cheddar cheese, grilled onions, and 5 strips of bacon. All in between 2 krispy Kreme doughnuts. sounds disgusting, right? actually pretty good, best damn sleeping pill I ever took too. So what are your favorite foods that have a high potential of killing you? bacon roll? Fried Twinky? just curious.
  10. Brains?

    I fail to see the spiritual implications of preventing Boltzmann Brains from coming to exist, besides if no one ever criticizes our researchers/scientists/philosophers, then many people would just believe in anything that they say. hmm, okay maybe I see the spiritual implications now.
  11. For Tangiers Don't

    are glass jars okay?
  12. Brains?

    Recently, I was reminded of an article I read in a science magazine almost a year ago. It was an article on a mathematical/physics theory that had a bit of philosophy tied into it, "Boltzmann Brains." It is not at all impossible for an item (for popularity's sake, let's say a hookah) to appear and dissapear in the middle of empty space. The exact same device that you are smoking from right now...*poof* an exact duplicate of it, than in a matter of a few seconds... It's gone. now with this knowledge acquired by some science egghead that lived over 100 years ago came the birth of an idea now called a Boltzmann Brain. A Self aware thing that, potentially could learn and know more in one of it's short lived existences than we could hope to learn in over thousands of years. This brain could be anything from, just a brain, a silicon based super computer, or even a humanoid life form complete with space suite and oxygen tank. (no kidding, the article said this) Now, it seems to me that this on it's own, even if published as a piece of fiction, would have been laughed at. Hold on, it gets better. So, recently another group of our best thinkers got a hold of Boltzmann's works and added a little philosophy to it. "Assumption is crucial in everything that we do, if we cannot assume that our observations are that of the common observer, than we could never conclude anything." So... as space expands, and the potential of a Boltzmann Brain appearing becomes greater (the likely hood of one having appeared in man's existence this far is next to none,) the greater the chances of them outnumbering us are, and the more likely it is that our observations are no longer the common observation. Now we have a handful of the smartest people on the planet all worked up over this, and trying to figure out how to ever prevent a Boltzmann brain from ever appearing. is it just me, or are some of our smartest scientist coming across as being a little dumb?

  14. Body Adornment

    I currently only have one piercing out of ten left, a 10 gauge septum, I still want to take it up to a 4, but it will take a long time as I don't want to snap the cartilage in my nose (a 4 is what the use to pierce a bull's nose). Other piercings that I have had were :right eyebrow: 2 one horizontal, one vertical, so that 3 beads lined up over my eyebrow and one just above and to the side of where my eyelids met. nostrils: took a few attempts for my artist to get this one right(my nose is a little asymmetrical,) done with a 14 gauge, I would place labret studs upside down in both holes or on occasion use small spikes, looked sick with the septum. right ear: 5 holes starting at the top and all pretty close to each other. the pattern of them was a spiked horseshoe with a spiked labret in the middle, then another horseshoe. on the day before my band goes to play it's first gig (were back together again minus one member) I will get my nostrils and eyebrow done once more. I don't have a tattoo yet, but am working on getting one soon, bass strings running up the side of my leg to my knee, with frets that would look as if they were stapled into place. (I am looking for an artist that also plays, so that it would look more to scale)
  15. Local Eats

    every major city has a "world known" 5 star restaurant, but what about the mom&pop operations that have great meals at a good price and you always leave full? where do the natives eat at in your area? Tampa: 1. Hugo's - little Spanish/Cuban restaurant on S.Howard, $5 bay side burger is great, or for a fast lunch try the ropa vieja sandwich (eat it immediately, it's not at tasty when the Cuban bread gets soggy. 2. Cafe Hey - just north of downtown, it's a little sandwich shop with some great coffee. the ambiance that this place creates is kind of a younger artistic approach with art for sale on the wall. I have never been let down by the soup of the day and the menu is always refreshing 3. Bamboozle - Vietnamese restaurant in down town. They remembered my roommates name after one visit! each meal you order is custom made and great, a good place to try pho if you have never had it.
