This is my project file. I say things in here. After this is my
plan file. It has depressing things i've said. It won't matter a fetid
dingo's kidneys once I'm dead. This file also has depressing things I've
said, but it has a little more structure. You probably finger(1)'d me to
find out some stuff about me. I am usually funnier than this. Really- here
a joke: I wonder if Data has a list of turn on's and turn off's. Well, most
people don't think I am funny, but I do and I'm not most people. Most people
aren't anywhere as depressed as I am. Most people's lives don't suck bad
enough to give a black hole a run for it's money. Most people don't have to
think about all the evil things I think about. Most people gawk at members
of the opposite sex. Most people want to have kids. Most people's main goal
in everyday existance is to have sex with a member of the opposite sex. Most
people don't like me cause of the way I am. Most people can't deal with the
concept of death. Most people belive in some sort of god. Most people think
there is some good to be found in people. Most people don't sit in dark
user centers writing depressing project files on X11 terminals. Most people
arent nearly as quiet as I am. Most people have something of value to say to
other people. Most people don't consider computers toys to be played with
and discovered. Most people don't belive that suicide is a viable option.

        Ohwell, thats what I had to say about most people. I guess I am
really not most people. Let me see if I can give a clue to what I AM:

iam depressed, agile, longhaired, angstfull, averageheight, unfashonable,
blueyed, quiet, introverted, silly, hairy, computertalented, tonedeaf,
different, highmetabolism, brownhair, stronglegs, affectionate, asexual,
thinkish, broody, badtyping, moody, nicknamed, russianborn, ritstudent,
csmajor, bikechainbracelet, yuckyrealname, observant, socialmoron,
philosophical, pessimistic, smellyfeet, nolife, alone, tired, unpolitical,
pissedoff, hatebeer, badjokes, neversmoked, clever, unmotivated, nogoals,
hatelife, childish, lovehack, wontgrowup, worrysome, defeatist, likemusic.

Have a nice death \ Some people are alive because its illegal to kill them \
Life is for people who cant deal with suicide \ ignorance is bliss. knowledge
is power. power corrupts \ Pessimists are what the optimists call the
realists. Suicidals are what the pessimists call the real pessimists \ The
reason they have no commercials saying "Do Life" is because dead people won't
do comercials saying "Do Death." \ Time waits for no man but death waits for
all men \ The only reason I finished the project so fast is 'cause I haven't
been to class in a week anahaf \ Pain is bad, death is good. It takes a while
to appreciate the difference \ My life is pointless because I cannot be a god.
My mind is a tough one to please \ Falling in love doesn't kill people.
Landing does \ A death of a loved one can be very traumatic. luckily most
sucidals have low self esteem \ The promise of death is the only thing keeping
some people alive \ Taking ones life is hard when there is somebody one cares
about \ To be great is to be misunderstood \ Just one more hack before I have
to go to bed, just one more... \ If you do it for you, it will be true \
Strength through mindlessness \ Shit: were all in it together \ Nice, selfless
people don't restore my faith in humanity, they restore my faith in randomness
\ If you are happy then you aren't thinking hard enough \ When things seem
the best, it is time to worry most intensely
