Paralyzed Hawkstar's Log. July 5, 2015.

Everyday, I feel the wind and I see the wild blue yonder. I am frozen in awe of myself in comparison to the deep blue open skies. I may have lost my will to fight but the will to flight, no, never. One day, and whenever that shall be, I will grow my wings. I will flap, fall and get up again. When that day comes, I shall spread them open and get off the concrete in which I stand to feel the wind and soar through the wild blue yonder.

(I'm baaaaack)

Thought of the day.

Eyy man. Welcome back!

TOTD: I find that the intense sweetness of dates to be incompatible with sweet, ice cold drinks. The sweet taste of the flesh doesn't want to mix at all with the beverage in your mouth. I mean, it's not "un-workable", but I find that it is much more enjoyable with a cup of hot tea. The sweetness from consuming both items seem to melt together into one good, intense, yet totally "agreeable" flavor.

Thought for my thought of the day: Being abstained from consuming any sort of food and drinks for the whole day during Ramadhan actually makes you more tempted to break your fast. Though we Muslims try to get our minds of it by occupying ourselves with other activities, it isn't helping that the TV and radio tend to spew out endless commercials regarding food themselves. Dear God, what were they thinking?!!

Thought of the day:
If I was president, I would never order the flag to be lowered for an attack. Instead, I would order the flag pole be extended with a larger flag to symbolize that every attack makes the US stronger and we will never bow to our enemies.

I think it's more of a sign of respect to the victims though. Maybe a larger flag next to it :P

After the GOP debate tonight, the focus group hated Trump. These are my thoughts about their response*:

Of course the people in the focus group hate Trump. The focus group always hates people who insult others and use "dirty" or "negative" campaigning. Focus groups are the reason most Americans don't vote. Most Americans want the exact opposite of the focus groups. The focus groups wants Doug Ross, but the average person wants Greg House. We end up with a couple of Clooney's so the House fans don't vote. And that is why Hugh Laurie sings the blues so well.

*Just a note, this is meant to be comedy.

Absolutely. It would just be one flag that would keep getting taller and bigger with every attack until it would be tall enough and big enough to be seen from the other side of the world, well, it would be if the world was flat like it is in YSF.

Thought of the day for those who think coffee isn't coffee if it has milk and sugar: A cake doesn't stop being cake if you add strawberries and frosting.

Despite what the Yankee carpetbaggers posing as Southerners might tell you, "y'all" is a plural word that is a contraction of "you all". "All y'all" means "all you all", and is used only to perpetuate the stereotype of the people of the rural South being too stupid to understand the American form of the English language.

Also, "ain't" is a word, is in the dictionary, and is centuries older than the grumpy old language teacher you had in elementary school who claimed otherwise.

Aks is a legitimate spelling and pronunciation of the word normally spelled "ask". Next time some urban female wants to aks you a question, don't think any less of her.


Thought of the day: Seriously, we need more people with thoughts of the day here.

This one I might ask some clarification on as the meaning is different here in Australia...

Liberal as in, hooray change? Doesn't that tie hand in hand with progressivism?

It's been nearly 2 weeks since I've sent my dear lappy to the computer shop for a complete replacement of the motherboard. The poor old thing's fan wasn't running at all and the screen sometimes flicker annoyingly. The dealership gave me a rough estimate of about a week for them to order said motherboard and install it in. To put it politely, I haven't been pleased to discover that; while not unexpected; that it'll take them more than just 'a week' to finish the job.

Plus, I was and intend to continue a lil project of mine once I get my hands on it back. Won't outright say what it is exactly, but I can't wait to show it to you all. :D

Hint: it's about 2 minutes and a half long and is going to go up on a site with the word "tube" at the end.

If you ever run into a class that seems pointless and the material seems like something you will never ever need. Save your notes. You never know how the future will play out and you may need to look back at them.

In my efforts to extract Angle of Attack and Angle of Side Slip data from a .yfs file, I need to do some vector coordinate system rotation which is a combination of linear algebra and trigonometry.
Check out my website YSDecaff for all my tutorials and addon releases.

Feel free to ask me a question! I'll try to answer it as well as I can or recommend a more knowledgeable member if necessary.

I learned the same thing when I decided to build a greenhouse. It was the first time I had used the "sin" button on my TI-82 in over 15 years!

Thought of the day for people in positions of authority: There is a difference between fear and respect. Both have their places and uses. Fear is when others are afraid to misbehave in your presence. Respect is when people want to behave well even when you're not around.

I can help a little with this if you need. It's something I needed to wrap my head around for OYS's racing compenent that you may see from the notes if you look back at that.

Thought of the day: I may not agree with what you say, but it offends me so I am going to make sure your life is ruined for saying it.

EDIT: Oh, wait. That's the thought of the day from college student activists. My thought of the day is that you are free to any rational opinion you want but I will not pretend your delusions are reality to make you feel good about yourself.

EDIT2: Judging a teacher's performance on their students' test scores is like judging an auto mechanic based on the reading abilities of his customers. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it learn how to read at grade level when they came into the class five years behind.

As we learned from The 100, they could always crash it into the ground and walk away unharmed.
