This is probably one of the most intense things I have ever seen. In my life.

That...

Was one of the most epic and intense things I've ever seen in my life. I was on the edge of my seat, and cried out "Oh God!" more than once...

Oh what, nevermind. I guess Netflix is too cool for Tron anymore. :(

[Wart's Scrapbook] Under the Looking Glass

Postby Wart on August 29th, 2012, 11:45 pm

It's been what, three days and yet I feel like I've been gone from Miz for well over a week. But I've got the day off, thank goodness, so I'm gonna be playing some serious catch-up.

I'm really glad you like the video Phoenix :D its entire epicness is just insane.


While I was gone I came by this article that I thought was really quite fascinating. In fact I'm still having a long intellectual discussion about it with someone over Facebook. (At this point we're getting to where we could probably just use everything there to write our own follow up article.) Whether or not I'll post a tid-bit or two of it here from it I'm not sure yet, as its still going on.

Anyway here's the article. I'm not going to jump around and make stereotypes or assumptions regarding people on an RP site or anything of that sort, but I know I personally related to it quite a lot and was pretty shocked (if not saddened) by the truth in it. Its pretty long, and I may end up just posting some of my favorite quotes or points he makes here, but I would seriously recommend reading it all the way through.

Here's a Youtube video as well that one of my "discussion partners" brought up. It relates a lot with the point about education made in the article, specifically regarding math. Not to mention the person speaking is a complete genius.

I'm currently lacking the mental capacity to full express it, but that article spoke to me in a variety of ways. I feel like I owe a long rant detailing my opinion on it. Perhaps I'll attempt one when I'm feeling better.

Of all the things I could, and probably will, say about this article, my biggest thought was -

Dang. I wish I'd have read this before I'd graduated.

It would have made it a lot easier to make logical sense of everything that was going on, and in turn make it a hell of a lot easier to deal with.
