[19:43] Desirsar: Ooh, I like the idea in the later comment.
[19:44] Desirsar: Humans can wear insulation to survive in a winter environment because they produce heat. A zombie would not, and the living humans just move to a cold environment where the zombies would freeze in place outdoors, where they could be freely smashed in the head with a bat at the leisure of the humans.

[19:35] Desirsar: The answer to the first comment is obvious - if the motivation is attacking anything they sense nearby that is alive or eating brains, they get out of a buried coffin by digging upward.
[19:36] Desirsar: If they're classic slow zombies, they dig until they eventually get out, but it's a slow process.
[19:36] Desirsar: I think all zombie movies get it wrong, though.
[19:36] Desirsar: They would decay enough plus having to scratch through a wood (or tougher material) coffin such that they would have no fingers, or probably even hands, when they got out.
[19:37] Desirsar: Imagine years on end of your style of playing Track and Field.

(My friend built a MAME cabinet out of the 30" Atari showcase cabinet. The way he mashes the buttons playing Track and Field, he gouged a chunk out of the wood used for the controls, and he would wear down his fingernails and have bleeding fingers for days after.)

[19:38] Desirsar: The entertaining thought to that concept is the idea of zombies who broke down enough trying to dig out that they eventually have just stumps for arms and legs, ineffective for digging their way out, and just writhe around underground on their stumps for eternity or until someone is unlucky enough to dig them up.
[19:38] Desirsar: At least they'd be easy to kill.

Now that I look at the map, even the detour route of the 41 (not the 40, although it's the same bus) doesn't even pick up from the stop we were waiting at, so she did miss her bus, and I wasn't imagining the number and name on the front. Luckily, another bus comes 30 minutes after (but that one is the last one! I hope she notices!)

I am confused as to what just happened...

I got to the bus stop about 5 minutes earlier than the bus leaves the main station/stop/thing, from which it has to drive a few blocks to get to the union bus stop. A girl walked up about 5 minutes after the time it leaves the station and asks if the same bus I normally take (49 route) has been by already. I say no, because I'm waiting for that one, and a conversation starts between us and some other guy also waiting on a bus (he never said which) about how early or late they are, and how the shuttle busses are almost always 20 minutes off either early or late. I was sure I saw the correct number and route name on the bus as it pulled up. I got on, she didn't. After noticing this, I looked at the map posted on the bus, which usually has its route map and pamphlets in a separate container from the others, and it looked like the 40. No problem, it crosses routes with the 49, I'll just get off there, cross the street, and catch the more late 49, or so I thought. It took an unusual route at first, but then I noticed its map was a detour map. It ended up starting on the 49 route, and I figured at the point it would likely diverge, I would get off and walk down a bike trail home just because it was there. The bus ended up turning before that, still following the 49 route instead. It did this so much so, that I got off at 33rd and Huntington and walked, just in case the bus finally diverged to its normal route, but it turned down the same street the 49 takes.

Did I get on the wrong bus that was really detouring that far along another route, or did she miss her bus after asking if she'd made it in time?

Since someone posted some comments, I thought I'd actually update again. (If only there were an app to update LiveJournal on a Palm Pre. Well, I guess the web browser is functional enough, I have no excuse.)

Got banned January 9th from a soccer MMO called Football Superstars for "making available a site which contains offensive images", to summarize their argument. I still say, at least by their definition, that linking Google to someone and having them search for something that returns porn would make me guilty of violating their rules, too. It was a personal action of one of the staff and not enforcement of any rules, and it's probably why the staff under him knows I'm playing the game again on an alternate account and they're not reporting it to him.

I now regularly bowl a 180-200 average, hoping to destroy everyone in singles and doubles in the city tournament Saturday.

There are mostly no cute Japanese students left at UNL (I'm not really interested in exchange students.) So sad. I am kind of curious how we will pull off another Japan Night since there is basically no one left.

Had some very... interesting... dreams lately, a few of which lead me to believe I am more connected to elemental fire than electricity, and that I should actually "study" to be evil. Sadly, I am a poor student and still like videos of fluffy kitties and bunnies.

Still no girlfriend, obviously. Not even any cute ones to ask out in my classes this semester, and I don't go enough places to run into any randomly. I really need to find a new hobby where I'm going to different places...

Edit - Oh! I see a couple entries back that I was wrong... I DID find the Lando in Skiff Guard Disguise commercial! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AL34yDROzyY

Argh, I don't think I'll ever find the 1983 commercial for the Return of the Jedi toy "Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard Disguise"!

AWESOMEST THING EVER

If you spray WD40 on a silverfish, it dissolves their legs off. Its legs were still stuck to the wall where I sprayed it, but it tried to crawl away on its stumps. It got a few inches before falling off the wall.

Well, it lasted longer this semester, but the Japanese conversation table has turned into "I'm the only person not at third year level or above that shows up" so the topics and grammar are always way beyond me and I can't participate. I suppose I could go to the first year table, but there are never native speakers there other than the teachers.

Also, why is it that it wasn't until after I moved out of the dorms that the conversation tables started regularly going to the Selleck cafeteria to eat together after? Bah.

To think I had a crush on her at one point. It must be pretty rare, and I know it's the first time that's happened to me... having any kind of interest in a person that geniunely dislikes you for any reason, as opposed to simply not having any interest in you in return.
