It's funny. Freshman year at college, they had an open house sort of deal where you could check out all the various clubs and stuff to join. I signed up for the anime club mailing list to get meeting/show times. Somehow though, in all 4 years of college, I never actually went to one. The funny part is that I'm STILL getting emails for their showings.

Oh my God, the exact same thing is ahppening to me.  Only my school's anime club's e-mails are like, "Hey guys.  Same place, same time," and I can never remember when or where it is.

Speaking of clubs... I should go by my high school and see how the computer club is doing. Considering I was one of the founding members of the club, I think I should pay a surprise visit some time. I'm interested to see how it evolved. I checked in a couple years ago and saw that they were getting into Lego robotics. Building and programming them. Which was kinda neat.

I also realize that their website has been down for quite some time now. We originally set up the server, and it eventually died (hardware problem). It was running some version of Linux, but ever since it died it hasn't come back. I'd like to find out what's up with that too.

Yeah look at me, being all helpfull and stuff. :P

Well, I suppose that's enough for now. Isn't nature strange?

I love the giant rabbits.  If I'm getting a quiet poopy animal, I'd rather it be the size of a large house cat so it has a fighting chance of establishing a dominent presence in its territory.

Octopus, not a squid, but still... Amazing camo abilities.

Now, imagine if something like a bear or a tiger could do that. I don't think we would ever had made it out of the trees. :-)

I did....only because I watch waaaaaay too much TV.
I don't hate everyone, I'm just very, very disappointed in them.
