I know I’m technically not supposed to post this but this song just makes me so Goddamn happy, I need to share it.


She didn’t party
So we became friends in college
Unified against that frat boy shit
We built an amp and a theremin

She moved to Jersey
And I moved in with my parents
And I’ve only seen her two times since
I slept on the PATH
I slept on the 6

And now it seems that every time
that I go on a bike ride
I think about the people who I
never bothered telling
"Hey! I love you and I’d miss you
if something happened to you.”
We should probably talk before you’re gone.

We hung at punk shows
Talked about hardcore and touring
And went swimming at his parents’ place
We ate In-N-Out
We went to the beach

He offered kindness
In return I offered silence
And I can’t remember why I did
I only remember excuses

And now I’m thinkin’ every time
It’s quiet and it’s night time
About 800 people who I 
never bothered saying
"Hey! I love you and I’d miss you
if something happened to you.”
We should probably talk before you’re gone.

So swim with me
Let’s get wasted on the beach

Let’s remember how to reach when we feel lost. 

A research pilot plant in Newcastle will trial world-first technology that turns carbon emissions into bricks and pavers for the construction industry.

The mineral carbonation technology copies and accelerates the earth’s own way of sinking carbon.

The University of Newcastle, chemical giant Orica and carbon innovation company GreenMag Group have spent six years researching how to permanently and safely dispose of carbon dioxide.

Mineral Carbonation International (MCi) will spend $9 million over the next four years establishing the pilot plant at the University of Newcastle.

MCi chief executive Marcus St John Dawe says the solid product could be turned into various things including building materials.

"We could be making millions of tonnes of bricks and pavers which really could be green products for the future," he said.

He says the project is about permanently transforming carbon dioxide, not just storing it in the ground.

Orica chief executive Ian Smith says the technology will enable every power station in the world to capture carbon dioxide emissions and turn them into rock.

He says the company is already capturing some of its COemissions at its Kooragang Island plant.

"So this would enable, not just us as a company, but all the coal fired power stations around the world to be retrofitted so they can capture their CO2 off-take.

"It’s an alternative solution.

"If you look at just storing it underground that only works in certain geological formations.

"This can work wherever those power stations are."  [x]

I am so irritated, I could just cry. I am trying to sell my car but keep getting people who seem interested, then drop our, or people trying to low-ball me on price. To top it off, someone told me today that I show a few signs of MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment). Today has just been very odd and seems to be worsening as the night continues. I am hoping for a much better day tomorrow.

(MCI: Definition)

Mild cognitive impairment is the stage between normal forgetfulness due to aging and the development of dementia. People with MCI have mild problems with thinking and memory that do not interfere with everyday activities. They are often aware of the forgetfulness.
