Weird, huh?


The Game

 The World’s Most Infamous Mind Virus:

Warning. Do not read if you want to keep whatever sanity you have left.

The rules of The Game:

Rule 1: You are playing The Game.

Rule 2: When you think about The Game, you lose.

Rule 3: Loss must be announced.

Still confused? Then go to:

MysteryGuitarMan is awesome! (Let it load all the way before playing.)

Have something you want me to talk about? Put it in the Ideas section. If you want to submit an article for the blog, Private Message Math321 at with an article submission, and maybe it’ll appear in the blog. People who I know well will have a better chance of inclusion than complete strangers, but well written articles will almost always be accepted, if they’re a topic that isn’t disgusting or wrong.

So, get writing! Thanks!

(Oh, and PLEASE tell people about this blog.)

This site claims you can heal someone by touching them and letting your life force flow to them.

 Everyone has the innate ability to help ourselves and others. The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy (or Chi, Bioenergy, Prana) by combining various breathing and energy awareness exercises.

Is that stupid or what? Quantum physics has NOTHING to do with health WHATSOEVER.

Just because we don’t fully understand quantum physics, that doesn’t mean it has magical properties.

Life force energy appears to be a completely different kind of energy from electricity. Current science does not have the instruments to measure it (yet). It appears not to obey the inverse-square law which describes how most electrical forces dissipate rapidly with distance.

Come on. If there’s no way to detect it, why do you have a picture of a person with energy coming out of him?

Anyway. Quantum physics has NOTHING to do with healing. Here’s what it’s really about:

Quantum physics is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of the dual particle-like and wave-like behaviour and interaction of matter and energy.

In other words, it’s the way light sometimes acts like a wave, sometimes like a particle, and how energy and matter interact at the sub-atomic level. It has nothing to do with chi or life forces or anything like that. Discuss in the comments section if you like.

Wolfram|Alpha is a REALLY cool website that you can use to solve math problems, learn information about different places, translate to and from Morse code, find languages spoken in any given country, find anagrams of a word or phrase, find and analyze current data about a stock, calculate Scrabble scores for a word, learn how common or rare a name is, look up the definition for words… Check it out! It’s like Google for the real world.

I will post on this blog things that I think are cool/funny/interesting.

I will also post on this blog things related to the sites I go on, if I so choose.

“There is no delight in owning anything unshared.” ~ Seneca, a Roman philosopher

I’m going to make a new type of blog.

YOU, the user, decide the topics I blog about. Here’s how it’ll work.

Go to the Ideas page, and comment about what you would like me to talk about. If you like an idea, copy and paste the text of the idea and make it your own comment. I’ll know the originator of the idea by the first person who posted it. If you have multiple ideas, please make them separate comments. If you have 2 ideas in the same post, I’ll delete the entire post. Sorry, but it’s necessary.

I will also post about things I want to talk about, too. That way, I have some control.

Another thing: I have veto power. If an idea is morally wrong or demeaning, or otherwise screwy, I will veto it. I will delete any instance of the idea that appears in the Top Ideas section. If it is reposted, I will delete it again. Hopefully, the very existence of veto power will be enough so I don’t actually ever have to use it.

Any ideas that go into the Guestbook section will be deleted, and any non-idea comments that go in the Ideas will also be deleted.

If you want to make an article for my blog, contact me via Private Message on My username there is Math321. Write out what you want me to say, and if I like it, I’ll post it in my blog and tell everyone that that article was created by “name” @ In the future I may accept article submissions from my inbox at, but not yet.

In other news, I might be making a chat room for the sidebar. I might make it some sort of answering machine for you to put ideas in or just say hi, or so any readers of my blog can talk to one another, or maybe something different that I haven’t thought of yet.

If you know a good use for a chat room other than the ones I’ve posted, put it in the Ideas section. If you have any Ideas, put them in there.

There will be 3 kinds of Ideas.

  1. Ideas for topics that I’ll post about. (Computers, sports, math, almost anything.)
  2. Ideas for technical changes. (Addition of chat room, deletion of a feature, stuff like that.)
  3. Ideas for new kinds of Ideas that are allowed to be suggested.

If you have a Question, put it on the Questions page.
