    Good, because I have to relieve stress somehow, and one of these days it might work you never know.

    Dental Fees. And Dentists who aren't clued in with the fact that some people DO try whatever they can possibly do to take care of their teeth, and still have dental issues. Know the factors before making a patient feel like total crap.

    I'm not saying there's anything wrong with believing in whatever you want to believe but most of it revolves around platitudes. "Spells" work because they're psychological. They ritualize a desire which imprints it as being important psychologically. That's how they work. There, the mysticism and "magic" is taken away.

    That said, there's nothing wrong with meditation, prayer, and energy beliefs. There's nothing wrong with burning incense and doing what you can to give yourself that feeling of control and power. If it helps you deal with the scary shit in this world then do it.

    I read about them in New Scientist, yeah. Significant funding is being channelled into making them technically and economically feasible for specialist application (Gods, I hope they go to mass market before I die). They'd be exponentially more powerful than any super computer devised to date because they'd expedite basic operations, replacing the binary model with Qubits. All very cool stuff. ^^

    I won't pretend to know anything about the maths involved, but I take a keen interest in the basic principles, at least, heh. I like science-y things. :3

    No, I'm not saying I know everything, but that just irritates me. I don't think Quantum computers will be available so soon for us "regulars"

    Do you want me to show you my banana? ^^

    I really want to yell PC MASTER RACE and for it to be a definitive thing, though. I feel like such a casual without shiny qubits ;___;

    I have a single party popper put aside for the occasion, just in case ;3 hehe
