So I’m waiting to get confirmed for fun and Steel Train on Tuesday and I hope I do because I love seeing fun, and I heard they’re going to play a Format “cover” or two which would make my little heart so happy. But I also kinda hope I don’t get confirmed because I just joined a club called MEISA yesterday and the second meeting is Tuesday night and I don’t...

tumblr is weird
bbones: sometimes you think youre following a well known person right? but then theres a section on tumblr that doesnt even know who they are. or that section has their own well known person. its like cliques or something. like you can start following a whole new world if you wanted to in case you got sick of the other one haha. i dont know where im getting at but i hope someone understands what...
This post is mostly for me, just thinking aloud a...
I’m really striving to be proud of myself at the end of this quarter. I need to bring up my GPA, get into the business school finally, learn a lot and make sure that I don’t have to re-assess my goals in life and where I want to be by the time I graduate/what I want to do after I graduate. I don’t want to have to switch my major, and even though I’m finding I have other...
haha I won the Weezer trivia twitter contest that OUAB was doing, but have absolutely no idea what I won or how to get my “prize.” The sound system was terrible when they were announcing my name so I couldn’t hear anything. Hopefully it’s something cool and not related to tonight’s show…
An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to...
Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is God good?
Professor: My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is God good, then? Hmm?
(Student was silent)
Professor: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?
Professor: Is Satan good?
Professor: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From.. God.
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Professor: So who created evil?
(Student didn't answer)
Professor: Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who created them?
(Student had no answer)
Professor: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son.. have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your God.
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Professor: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Student: No, sir, there isn't.
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was a pon-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light... But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it's called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The class was in uproar)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?
(The class broke out into laughter)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? .. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable)
Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student: That is it, sir.. exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving!
That student was Albert Einstein.
People never fail to amaze me everyday. In both positive and negative ways.
Waiting to get confirmed for fun. and steel train on the 5th. Fingers crossed because I really want to see both of them again. Who’s planning on going? :)

I have got to be the worst person to make plans...
It drives me crazy when all the details aren’t planned out beforehand. Not all the details of what’s going on but more like what time are we meeting, where are we meeting, who’s driving, etc. I try so hard not to be annoying but it bugs me when people don’t communicate and expect me to guess or give me as little information as possible. Haha.
Everything must change.
I just printed out the 13 page application for Big Brother 13. I’ve wanted to apply since I was like 10. But I can’t technically apply til March since you have to be 21 at the time of application but as of right now there’s no deadline. So let’s just hope it’s not too late by then :) Edit: Part of the eligibility requirements didn’t get updated and has an old...
Big Brother will be returning for a 13th season...
YAYY! I’m applying for it this year since I’ll be 21 finally :)
Big Brother 12 – Britney Haynes House Burns Down –... →
ohdarling-: The Big Brother 12 finale is happening tonight, LIVE on CBS. The last female standing was Britney Haynes who was the last house guest evicted. She is now in the sequestered house and still has no contact with the outside world. While she’s been waiting to get back to her real life, Britney’s home in Hillcrest, Arkansas burned down early this morning. She shares this house...
