so I’ve always used backspace. But hell, why not both? You can erase backwards or forwards. It’s ingenious. I was so blinded by comfort and habit before. Now I see the light. People really can change for the better. This also may be some metaphor for life. I’m not sure yet because I have to finish rewriting my lab report. There’s no time for philosophy in science!

I Get a Kick Out of You
My story is much too sad to be told, But practically ev’rything leaves me totally cold The only exception I know is the case When I’m out on a quiet spree Fighting vainly the old ennui And I suddenly turn and see Your fabulous face.

The plan is to start looking for jobs right out of school, to become militant, impersonal, and absorbed. I could sell my car in Florida and start paying off my loans as soon as possible. I would continue to be responsible. But I’m sitting here thinking that maybe I don’t have to. Maybe I could get my car and use it to go wherever I want, finally abandon the need for this laptop (no...

“We’re going to the cape,” she said, rather than hi or hello, as she walked through my open door and into my apartment. In one hand she had an unopened bottle of Jim Beam inside a crumpled paper bag and in the other she held two shot glasses together with her pointer and middle fingers. One glass had a fading Celtics logo while the other had the symbol for the Florida Seminoles....

The Very Important Sneetches

This wondrous contraption will take OFF your stars so you won’t look like Sneetches that have them on thars.” And that handy machine working very precisely Removed all the stars from their tummies quite nicely. Then, with snoots in the air, they paraded about. And they opened their beaks and...

Forced swim test
I’m knee-deep in writing a research report about using the forced swim test paradigm to liken observations of learned helplessness in rats to depression in human beings. Forced swim test (FST): You put a rat or mouse in a cylinder of water, filled high enough so that his tail can’t touch the bottom but low enough so that he can’t escape out of the top opening. Then you measure...

What arrangement of jargon would most resemble sound scientific inquiry?” - Albert Einstein’s son Eduard was studying to be a psychiatrist but was struck with an onset of schizophrenia at the age of twenty. He spent much of his life institutionalized. - Our perception of the world is radically...
