“Ho sempre avuto un grande difetto: la noia. 
Mi sono sempre annoiato per tutto: le cose, i luoghi, persino le persone. Mi sono allontanato da un sacco di persone per noia, perché sono sempre stato del parere che chi doveva starmi vicino doveva arricchirmi, riempirmi, sconvolgermi il cervello e l'anima.
Ho sempre amato le cose inaspettate, le persone diverse, o uguali a me che mi incendiano la testa in qualche modo. Ho odiato il mio carattere tante volte, perché per colpa sua ho mandato via bellissime persone, e la scusa del “sono fatto così” non può reggere sempre. Allora vi dico che vivo la vita per incendiarmi e voglio accanto persone che mi incendiano. Mi annoia tutto, tranne il fuoco.”

anonymous asked:

how do you feel about nasus being strong after the rune changes??

About goddamned time. He’s a demigod, he should crush those hamsters.

Though really, I was entirely blindsided by this coming about. I had thought that this season was entirely unsuitable for him but after my kneejerk of a reaction (and some time taken off for my own sanity), I was super surprised to see that he wasn’t just doing well, but he actually had a high win rate.

Of course I’m crazy happy about him doing well but I have no idea why what is effective on him is effective on him. I’d joked about going kleptomancy + coin for increased gold generation, when the changes landed; I didn’t expect that to be a thing.

So of course now that I’m back-

I’ve played like two matches with him because I never get assigned top lane anymore. I’m being turned into an ADC main against my will. Send help.

I like drawing sibling characters because same face syndrome is entirely excusable ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

#3yrsago Exploding the Phone: the untold, epic story of the phone phreaks

Phil Lapsley’s Exploding the Phone does for the phone phreaks what Steven Levy’s Hackers did for computer pioneers, capturing the anarchic move-fast-break-stuff pioneers who went to war against Ma Bell.


The original AT&T was a curiously perfect symbol of America: a titanic corporation deeply enmeshed in the US government and military; an R&D organization with parallel that paved the roads that would someday become the nation’s information superhighway. More than GM, what was good for AT&T was good for America – the transistor, the computer, the long lines and the DEW line.

AT&T was also a curiously perfect target for another American symbol: the hacker. Mapping the network and rooting out its secrets was as wholesome and problematic as the push through the American frontier. The early phreaks – many of them blind – were motivated by a combination of hijinx and Yankee ingenuity, escaping the isolation of disability in a technical mystery of incredible complexity.

And finally, AT&T was a curiously perfect symbol of American corruption: the military-industrial complex, a ripoff’s ripoff that outraged free marketers, mafiosi, and anarchist Yippees alike, each for their own reasons.

Lapsley is a master storyteller – the comparison to Levy’s classic Hackers is an apt one – and was blessed with a lot of primary source material, including interviews, secret memos prised loose from corporate and state archives with the Freedom of Information Act, and archival documents rarely seen or referenced in other stories about the period.

The phreaks – and the trustbusters, cops, phone cops (cue WKRP!), and regulators both tame and toothsome – are a perfect microcosm of all the battles that followed since. Without the phreaks – and the rip-off, toll-busting blue boxes that Woz and Jobs marketed in dorms and to the great and good of Hollywood – there would be no Apple Computers. There would likely be no Internet. The computer crime statutes that caused so much misery for the likes of Aaron Swartz and Barrett Brown have their origins in the phreak wars.

We’re moving into an era where every policy fight starts and ends as a fight over how technology should work and who should control it, an era where the corporations that package and delivery claim the right to control its users. Exploding the Phone is an essential guide to where that fight started, how it’s changed, and where it has stayed the same, over more than half a century.
