Finish law school, practice law, possibly run for a judicial position, establish self as a proficient and respected legal authority and either be running or have triumphantly run for US Senate.

Lofty, yes. Possible, also yes.

Replies: 6

Yeah, it's impossible. The Vectrex uses a special type of monitor, a vector monitor, which operates differently than your typical "raster" monitor, what televisions, arcades, and computer monitors use. Some arcades, such as Asteroids, use vector monitors, as they allow the games to easily draw objec...

Just about done with university myself. Between UT Dallas and Baylor, college has been an interesting experience, to say the least. Advice for those entering college in the future: check out your roommates ahead of time unless you know who you will be living with. Also, only get a meal plan if you c...

Cell-shade it all. That would be pretty cool. Of course, I'm sure that's not an option. You mean like "A Scanner Darkly?" Aside from being the most underrated movie of 2006, the rotoscopy involved was staggeringly complex. They literally went frame-by-frame for every frame (30 per second for 1:40 h...

Holy Damn, was that HD footage? My Mac just about had a stroke. Also, I seem to recall seeing a photo somewhere of you filming with two cams simultaneously; do I sense a 3D motion picture...? Kudos on the footage; though it may be years away *cough*portwashington*cough*, I eagerly await the outcome....

Wait, you aren't by chance coming to town on Saturday (or tomorrow through Saturday) by any chance are you? If so, SuperAuctions has an event running nearby this weekend (Saturday, if you hadn't guessed). Those who don't know what SuperAuctions does may be pleased to know that they auction amusement...

I was about to say... I'd eat my hat if this was not the work of 4chan. It's one thing when a prank makes you laugh; it's on a whole other masterful level when it genuinely alarms you.

Marrying Pokemon, seriously? That's just creepy.

Drinking is only bad when you drink to excess and wind up with your head in the toilet and a splitting hangover. That's when you do real damage to your brain and liver. Exactly. Thats what I was trying to imply for myself. I personally think that the drinking age should be way lower, esp. in the st...

Someone has done this with the iPhone and it was very much a hassle, if I recall. The cracked open the bluetooth system on the iPhone and tethered it as a modem; the EDGE functionality served as the internet connection, but I don't think bluetooth permitted very "blazing" speeds.

Coming through Dallas, you say? Perhaps a meetup when you pass through is in order. There's a bit to do in Dallas if you know where things are. There's the 6th Floor Museum in downtown, where Oswald assassinated Kennedy. Dinner in Reunion Tower (expensive, but very good, and the place rotates; yeah,...

In my high school experience (university now), half of my history studies were focused on the world in general (pre-Rome through the end of the eighteenth century) and the other half on America. The study we placed on the rest of the world was fairly thorough, considering it was a history of the ent...
