Fart Guaging For The Anosmic

  • Anosmia is the lack of a sense of smell. It is what Dewy Cox has refered to as, "Goin' nose blind."
  • I am anosmic though occasionally and for no adequately explained reason I can smell things; occasionally the things I smell are not present like nose hallucinations.
  • With no sense of smell I cannot tell how bad my farts smell though I believe there is a correlation between the stinkyness of my farts and how warm my butt feels when I fart.
  • Do other people notice any such relation? Research and understanding of butt warmth/foul odor correlation will be invaluable to my efforts to warn nearby individuals of impending methane exposure.
  • hmmm perhaps I should ask a biologist about possible sensory reaction to methane density aside from its distinctive odor.
  • Also worthy of note: I never really thought farts smell bad, maybe that's a learned behavior. They always seem kind of warm and earthy; I found the smell reassuring really. 
  • Apparently women have migraines more than twice as often as men. Sister's can't catch a break. Don't take this the wrong way, but I'm sure glad I don't have to put up with the shit women do.
  • Hmmm I'm about halfway through 27 Dresses and so far I'm really liking it; I like Fevered Pitch, but that was fine it's kind of about baseball and has a comedian in it. 27 Dresses has the guy who plays the X-Man nobody likes the best part of the movies was him finally getting blown the fuck up. I'm not a homophobe but american culture is so I really don't want to be "the guy who secretly likes chick flicks" it would be very inconvenient.
  • "all successful artifacts are outcomes of cumulative improvements." is your quote for the day.
  • "All artifacts are fucked up repetedly until tthey aren't fucked up." is the paraphrase of the day.
  • I have to amend that paraphrase. some things are fucked up until the creator says fuck it and sells it anyway.

          News on el Book

          • Well I now have a beggining middle and end outlined for not one but two books. I've been focusing pretty exclusively on the first book for fairly obvious reasons.
          • The current stage of the writing process is exciting, fun, liberating, and scary.
          • I just go through the innards deciding how I can do each stage of the story to provide maximum awesome/make sense which is fun.
          • at the same time this is my greatest chance to fail to make it any good.
          • I'm worried it is going to be longer than publishers want it to be.

          More Musings (mmmm aliteration)

          • After I posted my article on ADHD I ended up doing more research on it than I have in a while because I was whoring for backlinks on related sites.
          • So far the knowledge gained has been worth more than the approximatly zero links I ended up getting.
          • now I have cool terms like "difficulty self-initiating" I know exactly what that means, now I just has a better sounding explanation for it than. "I'm not sure, I sat down to do it and looked at the paper... and then didn't do it..."
          • For some reason discovery of a term for it has led to my creating methods for dealing with it. I knew of the phenomenon and hadn't been able to come up with much but I learned some shiney multi-sylabic words and presto.
          • one of the methods is to ensure I'm rockin' happy when I start: cue Nightwish Gundam AMV.
          • I might post more articles about ADHD as a result, though no one fucking reads the first one.
          • If you're ever in a band named Nightwish never change your lead singer, at least a million percent of your fans will never get over it .
          • What do commandos call walking around without underwear?

              hmmm Twitter and Redgage Stack

              I twittered a redgage article that was just a summary and a link to a hub, and I have zero followers. Somehow this brought a crap-load of people to my redgage account; my brain hurts.

              all these links to my hub kind of disrupt whatever vestigial goodness this blog may have otherwise had, I hate the things but frankly a backlink's a backlink.
