Node Hit-List: Doppelgamer 3, Really Decadent Guys, Lipton-Tarjan Separator Theorem

I was a Mathematics / Computer Science double major at Macalester College until December 18, 2002. I still have to write a capstone for my CS degree, I've had major surgery, been in a car accident, and currently struggle with clinical depression. Now I'm a software engineer who helps program navigation control software for inertial reference systems.

I keep my bookmarks file big because I think big bookmark files are one of the sexiest things ever.

When I have Fears that I may Cease to Be

  • I can't decide whether to change the world or just become a bitter recluse
  • Stoicism on Death and Dying
  • Why the world is more beautiful with a creator
  • the map is not the territory
  • Tears must be shed to make room for the laughter
  • Denied an existence as beautiful and unique snowflakes
  • Reclusiveness is the key to ending the bitter frustration that consumes me whenever I think of the state of the world
  • Imagine the prettiest thing you've ever seen. Now make it glow.
  • Questions we will never have answers to
  • Get busy living or get busy dying
  • Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it
  • I stared into the muddled sky with tears running down my face in small rivers, and I knew then that there was no hope
  • When you're the oldest, you're not allowed to feel pain
  • We know we have fallen because we know who we are
  • Loneliness is but a myth dispelled by you
  • we make lights to answer the stars
  • This is my truth tell me yours
  • Discoflamingo13's List of the Absolute Shiznittiest Nodes, Bar None

    If you haven't read these, you should - most of them deserve some serious loving, and the rest are about as loved-out as they're gonna get. If nothing else, funny, witty and/or touching. As usual, YMMV.

    The Most Beautiful Node-Shells

    Yup - nothing in these, although the titles are gorgeous or funny, take your pick. When I get around to writing that chapbook of poetry where all the titles are node-shells, I'll probably be pulling from this pile.

    Nodes about Poetry, Postmodernity, Language, and Writing

    All of these nodes taught me something - and they may very well teach you something. Short explications of which are which, to follow.

    Nodes about Movies and Plays

    Node about Mathematics and Informatik

    E2 Meta-Nodes that Explain Themselves with Time, if Nothing Else

    Nodes about Philosophy, Religion, Spirituality, and None of the Above

    Note: This was a node-shell rescue / found node poem for "She says I'm perfect. Why doesn't she fall in love with me?" , or whatever the hell you want to call it, but it was too "cutesy" for E2. I'm still proud of it, so here it sits. Suck it.

    "Mit der Dummheit kämpfen die Götter selbst vergebens"
    (Want (the state of not having her))

    Who cares how pretty your girlfriend is?
    Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn't have fallen in love with?
    Falling in love with your best friend?
    Hey, would you mind if I was infatuated with you for a week?

    If we were machines, we'd have the gift of being eternal and I want you to understand
    I'm falling in love with you -
    Do you love me or are you in love?
    I'm not in love.
    I'm just saying...
    I love you, just not enough.
    If I loved you-
    if you have to ask you wouldn't understand
    what "I love you" doesn't mean

    Just before I was gonna say I love you,
    I thought you loved me.
    With regard to your recent use of the L word,
    I wonder when I learned to smile when I was being hurt,
    those moments where you can't even cry, you just sit there-
    because I've never been able to make anything beautiful-
    I think I think too much.

    She says I'm perfect. Why doesn't she fall in love with me?
    I don't think I would want to date her now, anyway-
    there's no room in my life for anyone to stay.
    I have come to think my chest is hollow through and through-

    I'm fine with that.
