SE Digest Update (and a new travel story to boot!)

quote [ Before I arrived in Japan, I had already set an assumption about how my experience would go. I was traveling solo, don't speak the language, am socially introverted, and I had chosen to stay the first week at an AirBnB private room in a small town outside Tokyo. I imagined most of my trip would be spent alone. ]


Finally! I felt like I was drowning not being able to interact with SE. You're my friends even if we've never met. I missed you.

I wanted to post this a while ago, but due to some weird glitch in the matrix, my ability to PM, comment, or post was causing a connection error using the Chrome browser. Installed Firefox and all seems well.

Please check out the extended for more info on the future of the SE Digest podcast and a new(ish) travel story I wrote.

SE Digest: Volume 42 (What's Brevity? Episode)

quote [ Had a little problem with opiates when I was a teenager. And by little I mean I overdosed on them. ]

[NOTE: This was recorded on July 14th, but due to connection error issues in Japan I could not post until today.]

The answer to life, the universe, and everything is not to be found in this episode. Instead, hear me share experiences of my first week in Japan, proffer thoughts on the culture, and tell of an unexpected romance that occurred. A bit of SE talk on drugs and nutrition, but mostly this is a ME ME ME episode. Thanks for listening.

Photos of my trip thus far in extended.

SE Digest: Volume 41

quote [ Konnichiwa and great fappin' morning, noon, or night to you, sensible human beings of the world! ]

A tad grumpy due to tiredness and another phone issue I discovered upon arriving in Japan today. Layovers suck. At least this airport has smoking rooms.

When Earth Dreamed of Nuking the Moon

quote [ Today it seems ridiculous that anyone would try to nuke the moon, but the political and cultural tensions of the 1950s made desperate plans seems sensible. In 1958, the Armour Research Foundation—the precursor to the Illinois Institute of Technology—developed a plan with guidance from the Air Force. ]

Was watching an episode of Mr. Show that had a silly sketch about NASA blowing up the moon. It got me thinking so I did a quick search and reaffirmed that truth is stranger than fiction.

SE Digest: Volume 40 (Live from Ong King)

quote [ I wanna see some nipples. -The Audience ]

This was a lot of fun. Got on stage before the weekly open mic and did a full episode of SE goodness. Thanks to the venue for hosting this impromptu event.

I took the audience on a trip around SE, and introduced them to the general idea by making a post with them.

Discussed the finer points of the website, and had time to watch Koko the gorilla and Fleetwood Mac videos, with plenty of pr0n sprinkled throughout.

Russia’s hottest World Cup fan’s sexiest shoots revealed day after it emerged she is a secret porn star

quote [ SEXY photos of the “swinging” porn star dubbed the World Cup’s “sexiest fan” have been revealed – and she does like to strip off her kit. ]

It would be cooler if that's how she was discovered. -Joel Spiral

Senate passes cannabis legalization bill in final vote

quote [ The Senate has voted to pass Bill C-45, the government's legislation to legalize cannabis. After more than a year of intensive study in both the House and Senate, the major social policy change has passed its final legislative hurdle, meaning that recreational marijuana will soon be legal across Canada. All that is left will be Royal Assent to officially pass the bill. ]

Some sanity from the great white north.

SE Digest: Volume 39 (World Cup Edition)

quote [ I'm rooting for Saudi Arabia, which is weird. I mean between these two countries which one are you gonna [laughs] which one are you gonna root for? I guess you could root for them both to not... to tie at zero-zero, neither get a goal. ]

Russia vs. Saudi Arabia at 5am in the morning (Hawaii time) to kick off the 2018 World Cup tournament. I promise I won't do this again for at least another four years...

113 Politicians Have Been Killed Ahead Of Mexico’s Election. There Are Still Two Weeks To Go.

quote [ Astonishing as these numbers are, they only tell part of the story: There are hundreds of candidates who have backed out of their races out of fear for their safety, and many others who have curbed their campaign activities. This poses a significant challenge to Mexico’s relatively young democracy, already crippled by systemic corruption and widespread impunity.2 ]

Politics from south of the border.

World Cup 2018 groups: Guide to the group stage games and latest analysis

quote [ The wait for the 2018 FIFA World Cup is very nearly at an end, the talking has pretty much stopped and we're only a few days away from the first match of this summer's highly-anticipated tournament. ]

Any SEers excited for the World Cup this summer? During the last two held I was out hitchhiking and didn't get to see any games save for the 2010 final and semifinals. This time around I want to catch as many as I can. My next podcast will be recorded during the first game, Russia vs. Saudi Arabia, in the early morning hours of June 14th.
