In doing research for writing, I discovered that in Arabic numerology, the number 1,000 was understood to represent infinity. There was supposedly a curse on the 1,001 Arabian Nights, wherein if you read the entire collection you would basically have messed with infinity and would go mad.

LNWallace07: I can't help people being jealous... My life may have it's share of horribly sucky points, but I've got several things on my side
LNWallace07: A reasonably big penis, a weekly internet column published on the same day and site as a column by Warren Ellis, my first comic project is on the verge of getting picked up by a major company, as long as the art passes the tests, and I've found a woman who is both hot as hell, and luridly disgusting and hilarious at the same time that really seems to like me. I am Fanboy GOD!
Kefky: .....Oh, so that it's then? You're just gonna brag now? I gotta now when I should use the block button here...
LNWallace07: No... That was my brag. It's done. I don't need to gloat more than once. Although I might begin refering to myself as Fanboy GOD from now on

*does not compute*

I didn't learn this today, but geologists beleive that about 40,000 years ago, Antarctica was part of a super-continent containing Africa, Australia, India and Antarctica. It had a tropical to sub-tropical climate for years, but when it started drifting south, it got colder, and then the Ice Age helped ensure it would become a big island of ice. There are volcanoes there, and inland pools under the ice.

Mixing strawberry milk and beer together makes a very disgusting drink.

That when you're on the manic side of being a manic/depressive you actually are lonlier than when you're on the depressive side...

You see, when you're on the depressive side, you just want to sulk, listen to some emo, and be by yourself... and possibly down a bottle of Jack Daniels.

When you're on the manic side, you have a giant burst of energy and you like to feed that energy to the people around you. But when you come back to your empty one bedroom apartment by yourself like you have been for two years now, well, then all that energy makes you antsy that there's no one around.

And then you masturbate...... alot!
