Lock it or Lose it?

I was making my way out of the computer lab last night and as I was about to walk down the stair when I noticed a piece of paper stuck in the door of the Linux lab. For some reason I decided to take a look at it.

I took the paper out and read it. It was a notice from Campus Security alerting the computer science department that the door had been left open. This didn't seem that weird, the door was unlocked and it was midnight and that is Campus Security job.

What struck me as weird was the severity of the note. Scrawled acrossed the top were the words "Lock it or Lose it." It went on to say that if the CS department didn't be more responsible, they would lose the privaledge.

It was like a parent threatening to take away their kids puppy if they don't feed it.

My question is, what priveledge? The priveledge of having a door? How are they going to take that away? Remove the door? That'll improve security.

I don't see why they're even that worried. The Linux lab is not very well known. I only found out about it when I took a class in Linux. The computers in the lab don't even boot up into Windows so it's not like the average thief could even use them. They'd just steal it and bring it back later.

Anyway, it nice to know that they care.

My issue with keys

I have a problem with my keys.

I never know when to get them out. I'll be walking toward a door that I need to unlock and I just don't know the proper time to pull my keys out of pocket. Sometimes I pull them out too early, then I'm just walking down the hall with keys in my hand. Too late, I'm standing there digging in my pockets just wasted time.

Obviously with keys this is a fairly trivial issue, however, it spreads to every aspect of my life. Going to the bathroom, however, it's more of a potiential problem.

Everything tastes like chicken, except chicken flavored Ramen

I've eaten more than enough Ramen noodles in my life. Enough to make me feel lucky I'm still alive in fact.

I noticed something distrubing about Ramen though. You have you basic flavors: chicken that's supposed to taste like chicken, shrimp that's suposed to taste like shrimp, beef that's supposed to taste like cow, and then you have Oriental. Is is supposed to taste like Chinese people?

I'd be a little concerned about the research that would have to go into to such a flavor but then I thought about how the beef powder tastes, so I'm not worried.

I'm against bad sex and swearing in movies. By bad I mean anything that distracts from the actually story or is otherwise unnessicary.

While such decisions are based on my religious beliefs, they do not stand on them alone. I also think the most important part of anyform of entertainment is to tell the story and any that takes away from that is bad.

For example, if the number of purple monkeys distracted from the story, I'd complain about the purple monkeys.

People often retort with stuff like "Sex is part of life. Get theF--- over it."

That's stupid. First off, sex is a part of my life, but it's never advanced the plot.

Second, people taking big stinky craps are part of life. We don't put those in movies do we? No because it offends some, and even those it doesn't offend, it doesn't help them or add anything to their movie experience.

Twins scare me

I'm not a man who admits fear easily. Atleast not anymore. I used to admit fear much more often than I'd like to remember to the whole world, or atleast any one who would look at the front of my pants.

I am still afraid of the Bogeyman, but I'll go into that at a later date.

Twins however scare me to death. It's just not natural for there to be two of the same person. with the exception of the occansional episode Star Trek. Doubes are never a good thing.

Besides, have you ever hung around twins, it's like walking in a house of mirrors.
