Noise Cancelling Headphones

I don’t own a set of noise cancelling headphoness and didn’t borrow a set before heading off on my honeymoon Europe adventure.

So to combat this problem, I broke it down into 2 parts, “noise cancelling” and “headphones” This turned out to be rather simple.

step 1, find a pair of foam 23dB ear plugs, (cost 47 cents)

step 2, use a set of headphones (not the ear plugs variety) (that i do have) over the top.

This worked out supprisingly well. See noise cancelling headphones only work in a certain frequency band (the low frequency). They work great to remove the rumbling of an aircraft engines, but is useless against the crying baby 2 frigging seats in front of you. Instead the foam ear plugs which reduce sound accross the whole spectrum.

The down side to this was that you now couldn’t hear what was playing throught the audio system. However if you turn the volume up to max you can hear as if it was playing at a comfortable level with out the ear plugs. So now you really can’t hear anything around you.

All in all it was a complete sucess, and it definitly helped reduce the jetlag.

Fuck you Spammers

If you partake in spamming just so your shitty site can rank better in Google. Then you are a fucking bastard who should be shot in the fucking face and your lifeless corpse should then be fed through a sausage mincer.

Your remains would then be sent to your loved ones, but being the asshole that you are, no one could possibly love you so you will die alone wondering why no one liked you.

… Assholes

FQDN

Why the fuck do people always use my FQDN when addressing me.

FUCK YOU PEOPLE.

I have a friendly name and that resolves just fine. Just because you are tooooooo lazy to read my fucking signature at the bottom of the email, you don’t even bother to get my name right. You are all a bunch of fucktards!

So tired, I love Fridays

There is still a lot to do. There never seems to be enough time.

It is always about time and there never being enough. I wonder what I can do to be more productive with time.

I should write more lists
1. Write a list to be more productive
2. stick to list
3. Prioritise list
4. Stop wasting time writing lists.

I suppose I could quit my job, that would get me some more time. But then i would be a poor hobo with no internets and that would suck. I need one of the projects that I’m working to pay out.

Office Plants

I like office plants, they make the dull grey walls off my office cell bearable. But they are prisoners like me.

I am currently working in an office that has a window to the outside world, and that window leads to a small court yard with fake grass and 3 other walls.

Sometimes I wonder what the hell I’m doing looking at a screen all day sitting under fluro lights. I feel like I’m just wasting away. there has to be more to life than this crap. These ultra critical deadlines that in the end of the day mean nothing.

I think I need some sun light and plants that are free 🙂

When I Die

I look to the stars. They are so beautiful that I would like to rest there when I die.

But that is a problem, you can’t just get up there very easily.

So the question that I throw out there is, how do you get a 2.8 kg payload (the weight of the average cremated male) to 35,700 km which is geostationary orbit? Or get to 160–2,000 km up (low earth orbit) but travel at 27,000km/h so you don’t fall back again?

And you have a budget; you can’t spend more that $50,000

So far I have come up with a plan to get to the first 34Kms with the use of weather baloons. this could be extended if you could use the baloons to raise a rocket launching platform.

There is no one dead up in space. That’s where I want to be when I die.
