As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

4-21-08  Archives
Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

Check out what I've been browsing: FURL.net bookmark archive. Not much commentary, relevance, or sequitur—but it's what's keeping this blog from turning into a meme dumpster.

Sometimes it's nice to step back and take a look at the bigger picture, as disquieting as current theories may be. I don't like thinking that the universe will die a cold lonely death--as it reminds me that most of us will too, and much much sooner. It used to humble me knowing that our universe, which is already at a size that is unfathomable, is only one of a possibly infinite amount of universes. I say "used to" because I now realize that 99.99% of those universes are boring (in both the physical and conventional sense) and their existence is uninteresting to me. It's like walking on the beach and thinking about each grain of sand underfoot. What's the point, if they're all the same?

So what's left? When I read articles like that... or well, when I read the books & papers that skimpy articles like that allude to, well, I think it's possible to have too much perspective. I mean, if I really thought about the nature of our existence, and of all the bigger things that are happening, then getting my work done so that some casino in Las Vegas can make more money off of sucker tourists doesn't seem so important, does it? If everyone started looking up from what they were doing, our whole economy would collapse, and then I wouldn't be able to buy that Audi.

All I have to say is, God bless television, and its warm anesthetizing glow.
