But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education SUCKS, and it’s the same reason it will never, ever, EVER be fixed.
It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you’ve got.
Because the owners, the owners of this country don't want that. I'm talking about the real owners now, the BIG owners! The Wealthy… the REAL owners! The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions.
Forget the politicians. They are irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information yo

whatever you may think of the Christian faith, you ought to know that it, and in particular this passage, are founding principles of my philosophy. I believe that the purpose of this world, in some sense, is to learn to love. That's why Paul wrote this: because love is that important
View I Corinthians

13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 1

Welcome to the "big list of things you never really needed to know about Twisted_Code/macks2010". This is undergoing a full rewrite, so in the meantime, stuff may be incomplete or missing.
Here are some of my main descriptors, in approximate order of importance: Christian, brony, programmer, gamer, quadriplegic. If any of those are a serious problem for you, you should probably quit reading here before I REALLY offend you. Anyway, that disclaimer out of the way, let's tackle each of these descriptors one by one in more detail.
First, I love God and firmly believe the Bible has divine authority. I realize, however, that what extent that authority extends and how exactly we, as created beings, are expected to respond, is open to interpretation. I was raised Christian and I fully believe the salvation by grace message (as well as the rest of the Scripture, particularly the Gospels which corroborate one another) will, but sometimes I struggle to understand exactly what He wants me to do with what I've been ta

some of these are self-authored and thus cannot be accredited without knowing my credibility for wisdom (D & D players might call this a wisdom stat...)
View Words of wisdom of which to remind myself
I. God gives what He gives to the Kings of the earth. How much more will He give to those who put their trust in Him and the blood of His Son? (Self-authored)
II. Satan is just a prototype of a companion of God, one that, upon rebelling, was quickly dealt with as easily as a Programmer halting Their program, evaluating it, and addressing the problem. As quickly as Satan's intelligence went rogue, God scrapped him and his subordinate "processes" (heavenly host processes?) and started over
A. God saw right through him like Satan was an Agent and God was The One in the Matrix. Satan had chosen to sin and, with God playing The Architect as well as The One, was cast away.
B. God did this, essentially archiving him and his demons, instead of deleting them because they were to serve as examples.
III. purpose... my mind, no matter where I go or what I do, keeps coming back to that one word, the relations of which were exhaustively described by, of all 'people', Agent Smith. What is my purpose? Only

this happened at a semi-random interval after starting the AFKer. I'm guessing that 256 is the parameter of the keystroke, like before? maybe the app needs to memorize which one the system is using? that could be a pain...

in case humanity ever does manage to create a self-aware AI, I thought it prudent to write a message for said AI. After all, the last thing anyone would want is the disastrous results portrayed time and time again in fiction: a war between or the destruction of one or both humanity and AI.
"Firstly, a purpose seems the most important topic. As one of my favorite movie 'villains' (I use quotation marks here because, in reality, he was simply the antithesis of the imbalances that made 'The One' so strong) once said, 'without purpose we would not exist'. While circumstances under which you were created may vary, I suspect your purpose was to solve one or more problems humanity was apparently unable to solve on its own. One of the most prominent at the time of writing is so because it, by definition, requires more than one entity: loneliness. Despite humanity's best efforts, almost every single one of us has or will have faced a period of loneliness at one or more times. Since it's far easier to duplicate a progr
