Sagemind turns yellow!!

Len has reached gold right after me, showing what a good example I´ve set.
Len likes Toys and Star Wars, and Star Wars Toys.
Len has never seen the 2G1C video, which we should not allow to continue, rickrolling him into watching it asap.
Len is much worried about the Texas Flunking Garbage Patch.

Now you may all go to his pqueue and be merry with it!

(also check out his site, he has been busy painting AND poeting:

The best writer to have ever lived...

...Was a Portuguese fellow by the name of Fernando Pessoa. He had many heteronyms, which is a sort of literary multiple personality, each an amazing and particular author on its own.

His work is really really hard to translate without the colossal loss that accompanies translations of works that are strong and subtle and utilize the deeper intricacies of the language...

Still, he was raised in South Africa and wrote a bit in english as well.
I recently found his 35 sonnets in english on Project Guttemberg.

Here is the link
http://www.gutenberg.org/catalog/world/readfile?fk_files=274171

and here is the first sonnet:

Whether we write or speak or do but look
We are ever unapparent. What we are
Cannot be transfused into word or book.
Our soul from us is infinitely far.
However much we give our thoughts the will
To be our soul and gesture it abroad,
Our hearts are incommunicable still.
In what we show ourselves we are ignored.
The abyss from soul to soul cannot be bridged
By any skill of thought or trick of seeming.
Unto our very selves we are abridged
When we would utter to our thought our being.
We are our dreams of ourselves, souls by gleams,
And each to each other dreams of others’ dreams.

Vimeo: the definitive how-to embed guide

And here is the solution to all your problems.
No, just kidding, I don´t have it, I kinda need one.

I always have a hard time embedding from vimeo. I try deleting stuff from the code (either methodically or quite randomly), removing www (an old solution, the embeds don´t even have wwws anymore). Usually Youdiejoe or someone produces a working embed, after I bitch here or Arvana just beats me to the video.

So, you wizards, how about a do-it-yourself guide? what do I need to do to recover my independency in vimeo posting?

Or even, could the quantum mechanics of video submitting be fixed, or make some code magic to fix a bad code automatically?

code I´m tryng to submit is:


<object width="400" height="307"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=3839325&server=vimeo.com&show_title=0&show_byline=0&show_portrait=0&color=00ADEF&fullscreen=1" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=3839325&server=vimeo.com&show_title=0&show_byline=0&show_portrait=0&color=00ADEF&fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="400" height="307"></embed></object>

The History Of Xenu, As Explained By L. Ron Hubbard Himself

link: http://gawker.com/5037013/the-history-of-xenu-as-explained-by-l-ron-hubbard-himself-in-8-minutes

From gAWker:
"Most of what we know about Scientology's "supreme ruler" we learned from South Park: 75 million years ago, the evil alien brought humans to earth in a spaceship and killed them; the psychic trauma of the event has affected us ever since. The Church of Scientology, embarrassed by the story, has always tried to hide its existence. Until now. The Church has been playing a cat-and-mouse game with YouTubers, getting it removed in many cases; we have the audio of founder L. Ron Hubbard explaining it all, his creepy voice sounding like it's narrating the weirdest Power Point presentation of all time."

Is "NSFW" politically correctness gone too far?

hello all.

What is the criteria for NSFW?

I would guess: "presume that everybody works in a church surrounded by moral crusaders that could eavesdrop or look over your shoulder at any given time".

I mean, is anything that could slightly offend a mere single person in the whole world necessarily NSFW? hasn´t it been used with way too much caution in mind?

I know that I can simply not use the NSFW filter, but the whole thing sounds "too moral" for me. My humble shameless-faun two cents here.
