The Human Instrumentality Project

I am being rash, and I'm being selfish. Barging my way through without caring about anything or anybody. Oh how I must look to all the others! How they must gossip and whisper and wonder, how is this all going to end? I've always done pretty much what I liked, and I've always thought that everyone, myself included, is perfectly entitled to pursue happiness with all their might. But this isn't just about me, it's not just my happiness that is at stake here. So I'm going to take my foot off the pedal a bit, and wait for a sign. If this is as far as I can go, then I'm just going be thankful for what I have. If there's some more road to travel, then I hope I've got what it takes to go all the way.

5 centimeters per second

Touching, meaningful and beautiful, Makoto Shinkai explores the theme of distance between people in this one-hour animated film comprising three episodes. I see a bit of myself in the male protagonist, and I sort of understand what he's searching for. Maybe I'm searching for the same thing, myself. I highly recommend this movie to everyone.

A lot of people treat internet forum threads as rooms where anyone can get onto a soapbox and shout whatever they want to, as long as it is on topic. So I see a lot of unfortunate examples where thus mistaken people waltz into a thread with a title like "I love ****" and make a post like: "I don't understand why anyone could like this SHIT, It's BORING and UGLY and SUX and the creator should be fed to the lions." What then follows is page after page of venom that linger on to poison the eyes of poor people like me who read the entire thread from start to end.

People should get it into their heads that forum threads are like conversations. Not only does it have a topic, but it's usually headed in a specific direction. If you're going to be an ass and disrupt the conversation, then no matter what happens to you as a result, you had it coming.
