“A long time ago in a galaxy far far away" is a lot like saying "once upon a time.” It signals to us that we are heading on a journey that takes place in a different place where we will need to suspend our belief in reality and accept a world of magic, sorcery, and even the belief that George Lucas can still…Continue

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. 10/24/13 --- This is my first blog post here. I found I haven't done much writing on my own since my graduate program started, so here I am... wasting time before I have to continue studying for midterms.
I was at the Illinois Capitol Building yesterday afternoon with my classmates and colleagues for a press conference with Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, during which she announced her support for Senate Bill 10, which would legalize same-sex marriage in…Continue
Curiosity... such a curious thing. Makes us wonder about so many things, makes us think why we should exist at all?
But, this feeling of curiosity was not much encouraged.During the time of Aristotle and Plato, one wold have to be brave to question religion and put forth their theories. It has changed. On a larger scale, we are allowed to think, allowed to ask questions, allowed to think differently. But, are we truly making use of it?
This is the real world suck. We have the…Continue

Good day to everyone who dares venturing into this new blog!
I'm starting this new blog on Nerdfighters to try to improve my English writing skills! So this is a personal development blog! Sounds pretty boring right?
Don't worry, I will try to make it entertaining by finding interesting things to talk about because I need your constructive comments!
For my very first post however, I will have make it slightly longer to introduce myself a bit. Like my Username…Continue
If you live in the US or other developed, Westernized nations and have anything to do with sci-fi pop culture, you may be familiar with the concept of time travel: people using a machine (often booth-like) to go into the past or future, while miraculously both the machine and traveler stay the same ages they were at the start of the time ride.
Problem: This is utterly impossible, due to one simple law:
Everything physical is subject to time.
That is, everything…Continue
In my Nerdfighters Debut, I'm taking a look at Arthur C. Clarke's classic SF novel, Rendezvous With Rama.

So yes, it is quite likely I suffer from Crazy Cat Lady syndrome...or will some day anyway; but this morning I was inspired to write a new blog post by my cat. He woke me up an hour early and would not leave me alone! Walking all over my face, trying to sneak a nibble on my clavicle, and just being down right bizarre! I thought to myself, "what the frak are you doing JD?" and then I thought about Google...and then about John. Yes, my third thought upon waking this morning was of…Continue

Hey all! Eric here (Gooby for others!).
This will hopefully be the first blog of many! I'm kind of new to this and that will be pretty evident in the first few blogs as I begin to remember my HTML class I took way back 7 years ago in college.
I guess this first blog should talk a little bit about myself (give you a taste) and then give you all some ideas of what I'd like to talk about in the next posts and let you decide what should come next.
Proof of the fast approaching Zombie Apocalypse. Right Herrrr.

This blog post will be devoted to a relatively in-depth description of my senior project for CIS and its planned implementation - because I have nothing more interesting to blog about and I'm tired of writing about how my day was.
The idea is that we (my partner Matt and I (yeah we're both Matts)) are creating an application that will let a user create/design levels for a 2-D Platformer game, like old-school Mario. You'll be able to test the level once you've created it and…Continue

With the popularity of TMZ, ET, and various other news or tabloid outlets, audiences spend more time talking about the controversial actor rather than talking about the controversial actor’s body of work.
Information is at our finger tips each time we wish to hear about the
latest rehab stint or run in with the law of our favorite celebrities.
Sometimes we cheer them on during their long road to recover. Other
times we vilify them and point to what could have been. Our…
