Rained out

Between the constant rain, my mother being mad at the rain, the sinus headaches as a result of barometric pressure changing because of said rain, I don't have the wherewithal to make a post tonight. I might have something for you tomorrow as I collect my thoughts regarding epithet-hurling harridans who would rather women be perpetual helpless victims instead of  being intelligent, aware humans who understand that safety is primarily the responsibility of the individual.

However, I leave you with this charming thought:

Me: Oh my god, stupid people are infuriating. But you know that.

Oleg: Only live stupid people. The dead kind are ok.

Me: True. Pity we can't reanimate them and make them useful. Necromancy would actually be a "green" technology.

Thank you, and goodnight.


  1. Funny!

    Hopefully your feeling better today.

  2. You have to look at the ongoing (can't use the term lifetime here) costs of necroamncy.  Talking to the dead and asking questions seems pretty low cost.  But creating (or in this case re-creating) living people who need to be fed maybe not so much.  After all the actual process of baby generating is rather inexpensive.  It's all the wind and dance before, and the support paymentnts latert that cost money.

  3. Oh man, I am like that EVERY DAY.

  4. Well, I just figured we could reanimate them as zombies  (voodoo kind, not hungry dead kind) and they'd basically be stupid robots. The real cost would be the training and salary of the necromancer, who would not only animate the dead but also control them. But basically, you'd be paying manager or CEO salary to one individual without having to pay anything for the workers underneath.

  5. Up here it's brutally dry and hot. I'd regret going running today, if not for the fact that it'll be worse tomorrow.

    For the helpless victims I'm reminded of the phrase "They'll make us beggars because beggars are easier to please."

    Though I do wonder which Oleg you were having your conversation with.

    Hmm.. I know my "Kims" don't talk back.  Though my Smith... well that one mostly complains about needing a name.

  6. Also:

    Hope you feel better with the sinus pressure too.
    That reminds me, you ever figure out what gremlins made the computer pixies run away?

  7. LOL. I meant the real Oleg, It was a conversation over Gmail chat.

    I'm not sure if I should be amused or disturbed that you think I have conversations with my guns.

    Oh, I absolutely do talk to them. They haven't as yet talked back.

  8. I've not a single clue. Best guess is that I didn't remember correctly and re-seated all the cables before I turned it on again that second time. 

  9. No repeatable errors are the pain.

    But that's why data backup and spare hardware are so important.

  10. So you monolog then? About nercomancy...  yeah, a tinge of mad science there.
    Joking (and conflating two conversations).Talking with guns is no stranger than talking to cars or talking to cookware.

  11. I just have an odd mind and it runs down strange paths.

  12. Well, that's why Eberron  Aernal elves have Undying court- a kind of elite undead club=)
