Eh, it's still escalating a situation he's decided to leave alone for the time being.

Good luck, Pnx.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

Pshhhh. Heights are nothing. It's the sudden stop at the bottom that scares me.

Confrontation kind of helps with these sorts of fears. I find my agoraphobia issues have gotten a lot better now that I've been going out more. It's gotten to the extent where I feel capable of making trips to places or talking to people if I really have to, though it's still pretty uncomfortable, and I feel awkward anywhere that isn't home.

It's still a really big concern for me though.

WILLING confrontation helps. As I found, being forced into confronting it exacerbates the situation.

Also, I've been looking about websites and stuff. It seems the majority of (at least the net using) British people seem to have somewhat xenophobic views. Are they British? If Y, good. If N, they are suspicious!

I thought Britain was cool, but this also upsets me. :(

I'm fine with sudden stops. I do them nearly every day. For example, getting into bed involves me suddenly stopping on my back, side or belly.


I think even when you're laying down, you're still technically moving at many thousands of miles per hour. :P

I tend to gravitate towards Americans more than the English when I'm online for this reason.

If you can cook good scrambled eggs then that's all that matters.

The world is still in need of an introduction to Sanskrit that does not have any of the following, fatal flaws:

-remarkably thin (Coulson)
-impenetrable and bad at explaining things (also Coulson)
-written in the 19th century (Whitney)
-published in India with a shit binding that is going to fall apart by lesson three (Egenes)
-written by an academic who is too focused on Getting in Touch with the Mystic Orient to land a real tenure position and has instead been relegated to the Maharishi School of Management in Fairfield, Iowa (Egenes again, though remarkably his introduction to the subject is widely and probably justifiably considered the best on the market; it's the one I just bought so we'll see how it goes...)

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

I wish could help, but my attitude towards mother difficulties is heavily colored by my own experiences, and aren't really helpful.

Relative to what? Relative to myself, I am perfectly still: It's the whole world that moves.

I did not know this, although I suspected.

I can try.

Excellent.  Your first test starts on Monday. Bring high visibility waterproof clothing, a rucksack, a sharp knife and suitable footwear.

Probably the only British people who actually make a deal of being british are the patriots and right-wingers, who are in the midst of a long anti-immigrant campaign. Most british people are not in fact xenophobic pricks, but it's safe to say anyone in UKIP or the BNP can be considered one.

You find them with every nationality, but I've found a lot of people assume that most english-speakers are american by default, so the only ones that mention otherwise are aforementioned.

Wait, do I have to find the eggs myself?

Screw Scotland! You can leave us!

I failed to mention that I dine exclusively on the eggs of ospreys, forgive me.

That's nice. I subsist mostly off the blood of tourists and flesh of sewer rats (and small Jerseyites) myself; greatorder can come over the pond and help me prepare my meals if he wishes.
