Its co-blog time again, and todays post is focused on mine and Zenbadger‘s current ‘lack of fitting-in‘ in the social world. Call us what you will…pixel punks, geeks, binary bitches, oddballs, dweebs, the socially inept…whatever. As when we not debating about, the latest techno gadgets’ anatomy, Star Trek improbabilities, thermal fusion reactors or perhaps what The Best Trilogy is; you will most likely find us in that corner, anxiously shaking, whilst clasping onto a selection of the finest comics the world has to offer. Or using online acronyms in verbal conversations. lol.
Though bear in mind.. for me, it wasn’t always 1′s and 0′s…
I remember the days when it was graffiti, MTV, staying out late, making fires, shaking a tailfeather, drinking till morning, and finally crashing during the day. The days when women would just arrive at my doorstep begging for sex. The days when knowledge was just a word I couldn’t pronounce correctly. The days when I would bunk history, simply to jam nails into staff car tyres. The days when skateboarding wasn’t a crime….
But these days… when I am not sick from some imaginary disease(thanks Discovery Channel and Wikipedia), or beating it in an old sock to the Large Hadron Collider while discreetly jamming to Commodore 64-inspired electro music (then writing a thesis on the result), I am either in front of a PC OR in front of an abundance of series and movies that are being displayed on my TV – which is coincidently jacked up to my PC.
Its awfully strange how things turn out when you not exactly walking along a straight line…
One minute you singing, clapping and driving like a twat in the 60km zone while toking the herb. And the next you compiling Linux Kernels for Saturday night entertainment, cleaning up litter to save the environment, taking yoga classes to get rid of that unwanted stress, and contemplating the concept of consciousness while your friends are jerking it to that stripper on the tele.
Screw large breasts, beer bongs, 3 sugars and tight-fitting vests. I want the most recent Firefox update, the latest version of Ubuntu, squeaky clean cutlery and downloadable pizza. And I want it all on a 1GB wireless connection. Over 1024-bit encryption. Yesterday. Thank You.
Anyways, if you looking for the better half of this post, then head on over to 01001101011000010111001001101011′s (Mark for short) blog at http://zenbadger.wordpress.com/ (01001101011000010111001001101011 is his digital name – yes, the one he gives out to the ladies when hes too drugged up on anti-hayfever pills to recall his email address).
I best get back to scripting, researching and automation. Or what we here in the office like to call, a slow painful over-analytical death.
