Darktremor's pet peeves

  • "Awkward...silence!"
  • Nothing lifts an awkward silence like pointing out that there's an awkward silence! Honestly, even if it isn't an awkward silence it always turns into one after this moronic shit. Who the hell wants to be the first to talk after somebody drops this crap? Way to turn a brief lull into a conversational black hole, dumbass.

What I have done with my life: 2005-2010 (previously titled life-changing experiences of the last 2 years, but it outgrew that)

  • Got into graduate school, working towards a combined M.Sc Neuroscience on the topic of portable EEG devices.

  • Went to a 4-day rave festival (Eclipse), which was the most fun 4 days of my entire life.

  • Co-founded a small start-up with a successful venture capitalist, developing portable EEG devices that connect to the iPhone using Bluetooth (current job), for advance detection of seizures and strokes, the tracking of moods and sleep quality, and as a meditation quality ("vividness" or "clarity") indicator. (I still work for this company, and it's doing reasonably well).

Creating theories and models is logical, but they can't be agreed with until they have made predictions.
        • My opinions, however, on hotly debated and evidence-lacking subjects (which are subject to change based upon changes in empirical evidence), are:
