The Great Prophecy

– “And then,” the prophecy said, “in the divided land of corruption, as the economic institutions start to fall, frozen yoghurt shops will begin to rise.”

– “What does it all mean, great master?” asked the young student.

The wise master pondered the question for a minute, and then calmly answered:

– “Remember this, young one; it is truly the one great wisdom I can bestow upon you: fat-free may be a myth, but it is one people believe in; there will be great demand, even in the harshest of times, for food without essence, as it will be believed that such food is superior. But know this, young one, frozen yoghurt is not a healthy alternative, it is merely a tasteless one.”

And that is all the great master had to say, for now the student had become a master himself.

Which Subatomic Particle Are You?

I discovered a blog about science. It’s pretty cool, read it here (called Schrödinger’s Kitten believe it or not).

Other than being really really cool and keeping me occupied for many hours and days, it features THE ultimate personality test: “Which Subatomic Particle Are You?”

Take it here.

My results:
Muon — 57%
Quark — 28%
Neutrino — 14%

So what does that mean? Let’s take Muon, the biggest part of my personality:

From a middle class family, with a sensible, short name, you’ve made a career out of being an outsider — too light to be a hadron, too bent to be an electron.

Adopting a rock star lifestyle once you got the momentum to leave the unfashionable galactic suburbs where you grew up, you believe in living fast and dying young. The only reason we witness you at all is your relativistic effects pedals and a giant marketing machine passing on your hype quicker than you can travel yourself. You’re particularly popular among particle physicists, who have photos of you all over their walls.

Hate to be the one to tell you this, but your two-piece (‘muonium’? gotta love that modesty) is pretty generic. Sounds a lot like traditional lightweight duos.

Pretty accurate, don’t you think?

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde

Man, I love Oscar Wilde. This is why:

1. Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

2. All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.

3. What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.

4. A true friend stabs you in the front.

5. I am the only person in the world I should like to know thoroughly.

6. I like persons better than principles, and I like persons with no principles better than anything else in the world.

7. A man who does not think for himself does not think at all.

8. Children begin by loving their parents; after a time they judge them; rarely, if ever, do they forgive them.

9. As long as war is regarded as wicked, it will always have its fascination. When it is looked upon as vulgar, it will cease to be popular.

10. America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.

11. I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.

12. All bad poetry springs from genuine feeling.

13. Ah! Don’t say that you agree with me. When people agree with me I always feel that I must be wrong.

14. Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.

15. Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

16. I see when men love women, they give them but a little of their lives. But women when they love give everything.

17. There is something terribly morbid in the modern sympathy with pain. One should sympathise with the colour, the beauty, the joy of life. The less said about life’s sores the better.

18. Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.

19. Society exists only as a mental concept; in the real world there are only individuals.

20. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, journalism keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community.

21. Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people whom we personally dislike.

22. There is no sin except stupidity.

23. The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.

24. The man who can dominate a London dinner-table can dominate the world.

25. One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry.

26. There is always something ridiculous about the emotions of people whom one has ceased to love.

27. One of the many lessons that one learns in prison is that things are what they are and will be what they will be.

28. Life is never fair, and perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not.
