    I'm writing a program which automatically generates a haiku from a couple user-defined keywords. It can then read the haiku aloud.

    That's pretty cool; I could see that being used in schools.

    That is awesome. :D I need to hike so I can get out of this funk I've been in lately. I know I'm going the first weekend in May; before then we'll have to see.

    To me it comes off like Marvel doesn't feel confident in their films on their own and feel it is necessary to shove in IM *or at very least direct references to him* in order to get the Iron Man audience/constantly remind is this is a shared universe. The IM in GOTG just shows they have almost no confidence in the comics on its own *we still dont know if he will be in the movie but its likely he'll cameo in the end or they'll shove in some unnecessary ancestor in since this movie takes place in the future*. Tis a shame since the old GOTG comics are actually very good and now it just seems like Marvel totally forgot about the potential these characters have and are all "People wont buy it unless Iron man is in it" and thats kinda insulting to both the GOTG/other marvel characters and IM himself *who has now become a cash cow to market other characters*

    I'm not. I'm laying of alcohol untill I learn some basic self control. So I'll most likely never drink again.

    I am in full support of inebriation.

    But I'm being kind to my liver tonight because I wasn't last night.

    I'm underage, so I'm taking the fifth on whether I've had any alcohol or not.

    Anyone watching "The 80's" on NatGeo?

    I drank underage. Plenty in fact. I became legal 20 years ago so I think the statute of limitations is up.

    That does remind me of being 22 and buying beer with my then-15-year-old brother. The geriatric cashier examined my ID for several minutes before deciding it was real.

    Unfortunately I don't get NatGeo but that sounds interesting.

    It is quite fascinating, especially if one doesn't actually know what's going to happen. I never knew about the CCCP vs USA Hockey Game in 1980, for instance.

    Bad fashion. That's what happened. Some great movies though. Punk rockers vs stoners vs jocks in school. War on drugs. Evil bad man communists everywhere. Madonna. Girls crimping their hair. Aqua Net. The rise of skateboarding and BMX. The fall of communism. Reagan. Thatcher. ALF. The first Nintendo, kids playing Legend Of Zelda till their eyes bleed. Iran/Contra. Pop Rocks. The beginning of rap going mainstream. Breakdancers. Suburbia. Cocaine. Miami Vice. You know. The 80's.

    That 1980 hockey game was epic.

    What, the Miracle on Ice? One of the US team members from that game lived in my town and had a daughter my age as well. Pretty cool to meet someone from such a legendary sports event.

    Teenage angst and bull**** aside, I have good memories of the 80s.

    The earliest memories I've got are circa 1990-1992.

    I've got to share with you guys a "kids say the darnedest things" story:

    We were in Trader Joe's tonight and I went to the wine aisle, at which point my youngest says loudly, "Mommy, why do we always come over here???"

    Because this aisle is important, kid.

    Busted by the almost 6-year-old. The guy working the counter was practically in tears, he was laughing so hard.
