So, here's the meme bit, as if it's not obvious: list at least four things that you'd do if you were God. Assume the same thing I did: you're omnipotent (do the logically impossible!) and whatever you do will work out fine with the laws of physics, such as they are.
-taken from, link via [ profile] porsupah

I'd be a frigg'n lazy god. :D

But let's see... if I could change things...

1) People would find their significant other, if they wanted one, when they wanted one (well, probably after some nice delay, so it's not completely perfect), and it would work just well enough for things to be decent. Or perfect, if that's what they're actually looking for. In short, dream and you shall receive.

2) Heck, let's make this for most things. Sure, it'll make for a lazy population, but why not? And what if two realties conflict? The universe branches, of course. The conflict resolves, and we generate two different branches of reality, one of each wish. Yeah, that makes for a lot of branches, but meh, I'm sure the universe ain't running out of RAM for a while.

3) Stupid diseases can go away too. Falls under 2, I imagine.

4)1) Magic.

5)2) Figure out where people go after they die. Keep people informed 'bout that, and ideally other upcoming major events. Probably in a yearly newletter or something. Or I'll find a few secretaries to do this for me. Oh, maybe that's how the Bible got started... mmm, that won't do. Might have to write this myself. Buggers.

6)3) Provide knowledge and a better documented toolkit in easily accessible tarballs. Download and compile, change the code yourself. Run UML, if you want. Just don't mess with root - that's my domain and a few intelligent admins that I copy from myself and periodically reload. Provide good documentation, as well as a better, cleaner way to make perfect copies, or run simulations, plus live, hot swappable parts / instant modifications. Documentation is a pain in the ass though... meh, maybe if they can do simulations and make perfect copies and stuff, they can write it themselves...

4) Yearly trips to say hi. So people don't get into stupidass wars about my existence and stuff.

I Am A: True Neutral Human Sorcerer (3rd Level)

Ability Scores:







True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment because it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

That Seduction Meme from a while ago... I'm still the same )

And I got my MOO cards from the MOOxLiveJournal deal. I expect the MOOxVox cards will come tomorrow or tuesday, since I got those the day after.

These are pretty. The Wizard's Oath ones didn't come out all that prettily, as words were a bit too small and dark blue to actually read. The other ones, mostly pictures of friends and one of family, came out decently. I think I should have left the back blank though. ^^;; My word choice seems a bit cheesy, since I was aiming to make it suitable for all of the pictures.

Lady, I used one picture of you from prom - will give that to you next time I see you. The rest... Mmm, may give one of the other friend prints to Ting, one to Lily and maybe one to Karen and keep the rest.

And according to, I have a 34A or 36A bra size. Hrm. Although the numbers seem to vary widely depending on how tight the ruler is. I boggle.

...There was a time when I was extraordinarily tolerant. I accepted people into my life that I never should have. I tolerated very negative, broken personalities, in an effort to be in a way I thought was expected of me. To my own faults, I was yerning for completion in other people, for fulfillment in them, instead of myself. Over time, you witness just enough, you catalogue the things that touch a nerve or that you recognize subconsciously as a sign of bad character, all the while pushing it down in consideration for harmony. Usually, there's one last thing, one final piece of a puzzle into the nature of someone, and the scale of benefit-to-suffering tips the other way, and you realize you're no longer finding any value in a continued association or friendship with an individual. In your mind, you have an entire list of negative instances that have compounded over months and years, but it's hard for the person being abandoned to recognize anything other than a sudden departure, or a curt, short dismissal. They can only think of the latest thing they've done to possibly warrant a grievance and to them, the response seems disproportional to the transgression. Over time, the result was as good as it was almost accidental: I ended up surrounded with, mostly stable, successful, positive-minded people. It may sound cliche and oversaid, but it's likely oversaid because it's so rarely followed. If you can't change the people around you... change the people around you.

If you find yourself surrounded by someone who's almost always negative... maybe they're complaining all the time, or they're exceptionally juvanile in their outlook, or they talk about their problems without ever taking affirmative steps to resolve any of them, you might do better to distance yourself. I'm not someone who believes in mysticism any longer, but I swear as the truth that the subconscious mind can't take a joke. If you surround yourself with people obsessed with escapism, obsessed with everyone else's life by their own, obsessed with complaint and misery, obsessed with envy, it's going to affect your own happiness. Surround yourself with people who cope with reality and thrive in it, not people who create their own realities in their heads and rail against the universe for not conforming to it. If someone's telling you your problems can only be solved by someone else's productivity, dump them. If someone's seethingly upset over someone else's success and/or happiness, drop them like they were plutonium (memories of Mat Sherer frothing at the mouth over Scott Kurtz's ability to raise money). If someone constantly pines that they wish they could be something they physically never can be, walk way from them. If there's someone who can never talk to you without bringing up everyone else's drama as a doorway to "conversation", run...

You are The Fool

The Fool is the card of infinite possibilities. The bag on the staff indicates that he has all he need to do or be anything he wants, he has only to stop and unpack. He is on his way to a brand new beginning. But the card carries a little bark of warning as well. Stop daydreaming and fantasising and watch your step, lest you fall and end up looking the fool.

You scored as Neither. You think neither like a man or a woman. What you are you may decide for yourself. Most people will consider you strange, alien, weird or funny. You are probably quite interesting.
