that's right, you couldn't

September 23rd, 2005

Have you noticed that whenever people say "I couldn't have said it better myself", that actually means they wouldn't have said it as well? That phrase is just a euphemism to save face.

rush hour at NTNU

September 21st, 2005

All classes at NTNU start 15 minutes past the full hour. As I strolled through the main building at 10, I ran into bloody Moses leading the exodus from Egypt.

Note to self: avoid walking during university breaks.

how to make blogs better

September 20th, 2005

I won't claim this is a novelty, it was invented a long time, just that very few people actually use it. The problem with blogs is that noone wants to read them and if we look at it closely, it's not really surprising. A lot of blogs are low activity, with rare, sporadic updates. So checking a blog regularly doesn't seem very worthwhile. Solution? Group blogs. Those are great because you have multiple people writing in the same place, they read each other's writing and it makes a lot more sense to have stuff like polls.

Or even if every blog is separate, then syndicate a bunch of blogs on one site to combine them. That way people have a place to go *and* individuality isn't compromised.

crowded pool

September 20th, 2005

What a f. nuisance. I hate a crowded pool, swimming in line, trying to stay in the lane even though I can never keep a course. People kicking without thinking twice about it too, there's no etiquette about that in the pool. Reason? Stupid swimming club has practice so they leave only two lanes for the general public.

Sat in the sauna instead. :lazy:

2005 total: 5.6 km
since 2004: 26.1 km

fruit juice with milk????

September 20th, 2005

That's right, just saw it in the supermarket. I'll bet someone was brainstorming again. Why drink juice and milk alternately when you can have both at the same time?

Stop it.
