I’m gloomy today.

I wanted to update every day this week (probably not going to) so here’s an update to say that people, my life and the world in general seem to suck. Trying to type up a more elaborate reason on word which I might post tomorrow but is probably just going to end up deleting like always. I wanted to have this part in small font so people could ignore it but I can’t find where I should click.

“Grüner See or the Green Lake in Austria is actually a small valley filled with freshwater during the snow melt from May to July. It is located in Tragöß, Styria, which sits at the foot of snow-capped Hochschwab mountains. And it is beautiful!

Throughout the frozen winter months the area is almost completely dry and is used as a county park. It is a particular favorite site for hikers.
But as soon as the temperatures begin to rise in spring, the ice and snow on the mountaintops begins to melt and runs down into the basin of land below.

The park fills up with ice-cold crystal clear water, which gets its distinctive green coloring from the grass and foliage beneath.
The water levels rise from about one or two meters deep in the winter to as much as 10 meters in the late spring and early summer.”

I just read an article about real life superheroes in Seattle. I haven’t seen the movie KickAss, but I imagine that it is somewhat similar to that. Ordinary people in superhero costumes (I use the word *ordinary* in a very liberal sense, since I usually would not regard people dressing up dead serious in superhero costumes to be ordinary). They even have a website ( Why do I get the creeping feeling that I am somehow contributing to a guerilla marketing plan by linking you to that?

Anyhow, if you read their *about* page it seems innocent enough. The cynic in me questions why people can`t do good deeds without prancing around in nylon, but on the other hand it`s in a way like marketing good deeds – if you are dressed like they are, you are going to get seen doing them and perhaps selling the concept of doing good to others. I don`t know, I am too tired to think.


In a rush so this has probably been reposted everywhere.

…that’s what all the cool robots do these days.

Here’s another uncanny valley-post. I’m not sure if it beats poor spermobot, but it’s pretty damn awesome either way.

(there’s some info and photos of it here).
