today I thought I remembered something but it was probably a lucid dream of walking down a certain street, even though I haven't been there since march 26th, it felt like late april, the difference is in march the snow was still knee deep but in the memory it's dry and about early spring, I remember almost all of it vividly but I know for an absolute fact I haven't been down there since march, my long term memory is pretty damn good, it's very distressing, I guess my tipoff is that the memory cuts off at a certain point soon in

if I'm remembering a lucid dream, then it must have been exceptionally lucid, to intrude on my real-world mind like this

I'm getting pretty fucking tired of having to install a shit ton of third party software and having to make a shit ton of accounts just to play 10 year old games. I've got like half a dozen game launchers at this point and even more accounts. To play a new game I have to click to give permission to install something like 12 times and only one of those is for the game itself. I just want it to stop.

The highlight of my day was finding a Hershey's milk chocolate bar in the crevice between my wall and my bed; it was probably years old now, and in a semisolid state, but I froze it and then I ate it. This proves that you don't need money or possessions to make you happy; you just need chocolate in the right places.

Hearing a phone conversation of my sibling praising the intelligence of her kid. I've heard this before. All parents think their kids are geniuses. There are no dumb kids anywhere to be found on this earth according to parents. Amazing.
Game really changes when they reach their 20s and parents can't ignore their offspring are dumb fuckups like themselves anymore.
You want to see two adults in a most awful, awkward conversation, put two parents together trying to convince the each other how much of a genius their respective kids are. It's the most weird, 'polite-aggressive' talk you'll ever hear.

In my experience breeders tend to not mention their kids intelligence if they are actually dumb, but will oversell their kid's intelligence if they are slightly above average or higher.
Sort of how they will act like they are the next greatest sports star if they are mediocre or above in sports.

Part of it is pride, part of it is wishful thinking, and part of it is just being shit at judging their expected abilities based on developmental level.
Any one of the 3 causes a over estimate of the kid's specialness.

It doesn't bother me. I sort of understand the impulse, and even was that special kid in my mom's eyes.
She thought I was a genius destined for great things because I test well. Turns out I am just autistic. So "special" instead of special, and probably will never do anything worthy of historical remembrance.
Dad is just mildly disappointed I have no interest in making a family of my own. He couldn't care less if I make history books.

Man I was almost scammed by Amazon. They offer this prime wardrobe thing which is billed as a way to try on clothes at home and then return anything you don't want to keep, but then I decided to read the fine print and it says that all returned items must be returned in original packaging in unworn unwashed state. So you aren't actually allowed to try on the clothes and then return them. It's literally a total fucking scam that is no different from a normal checkout.

Sometimes I wonder what will happen when they finally run out of ways to "improve" windows. Like will microsoft just fire all their employees? Eventually this will happen not just to windows but to most all technology. There's only so good you can make a product.

Apple figured this out a few years ago. You don’t need to make improvements, you don’t need to make a better product, you just need to make it different than the last iteration.

it is pretty insane that dinosaurs existed for about 150 million years and never developed the levels of intelligence humans have today, and humans have only been around 200 thousand years. It took a giant cataclysmic event to create the right environment for intelligence to reign, I wonder how many planets there are in the galaxy that are inhabited by vicious brainless animals that will never evolve past that state, maybe highly intelligent species are an extremely rare occurrence and the true equilibrium will always just be the vicious animals

Speaking of cataclysm and human intelligence, coincidently, today I heard that some people believe the mass extinction during the cretaceous was caused by God tossing a fallen angel down to earth.

See, this is the problem with modern science. People constantly dig up evidence of creatures dying in times & places that don't fit into their narrative at all. So instead of questioning the status quo (which is what got us as far as we did) they mark it as an anomaly and push it under the carpet. Done. Never talked about again. They can't and won't explain the human remains from well over 2 million years ago, or the fossils of an ancient whale found underneath a freaking desert.
