Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: An Analysis
Bugger me, I have been working hard considering I don't have a job yet. I've had to organize my thingimagig with UTAS in record time because classes start next week. The amount of time I spend worrying about these things is driving me up the wall.
Gosh, the internet is so slow here my typing is actually delayed on the description. I'm having a blast typing out long sentences and then watching them slowly catch up to be on the screen.
It's actually odd, because the video is uploading faster than usual. So with the slow typing speed and the fast uploading speed, I guess I better make the most of the short time I have to type up a mini-blog post. But that's not at all what I'm doing now, is it?
I can effectively say that Dr. J and Mr. H can fit snuggly into my favourite stories of all time list. It certainly doesn't dethrone Frankenstein, but I'm fairly certain nothing can at this point. Frankenstein was written for me. Not that I'm asserting that when writing the tale, Mary Shelley anticipated that in the year 2011 a young boy at the end of high school wold be given the book unwittingly as part of his year 12 reading list. That would make me a narcassist, wouldn't it?
Oh gosh, the IE engine I'm working off doesn't have spellcheck. I'd use Firefox, but this internet cafe doesn't have the adobe plugin reuqired to use YouTube installed on Firefox, so I am forced to use IE to navigate YouTube.
Actually, forget what I said about the video uploading quickly. The little progess bar has slowed down to a crawl. It's too bad troll science doesn't work in real life. It would seriously help me in situations like this.
Speaking of science, you guys should really read into the Higgs Boson. The physics around what makes matter matter instead of some formless substance floating weightless around some empty void is really fascinating.
I did some reading into Dissociative Personality Disorder before I made this video and I was surprised to find that research into the phenomenon goes way back into the 1600's. It's fascinating stuff. The disorder is usually caused by trauma, were a person will assume a different personality as a defense mechanism against the trauma. It's sort of like how the body scars if it anticipates further serious injuries to the same muscular region. Scar tissue is actually stronger than ordinary muscle tissue. It does have practical purposes, for example the soles of our feet scar if we walk around in bare feet on jagged ground for most of our lives. It's how primitive humans put up with walking on the dirt of the Earth without shoes back in antiquity.
I have a mystery scar on my arm. I have no idea where it came from. I don't remember getting cut, I never felt any pain, I just looked at my arm one day and found that I had an injury, which I assumed would heal up and disappear. But no, it formed a scar. I was genuinely surprised. It's never caused me any trouble at all, but it's just there on my arm. It's weird. And I reckon it's probably a great metaphor for my psychological scars. Heh heh.
The upload is at 82%. And it's already cost me $3.00 to do it.
It's currently 9:40am. If you're wondering what I'm doing in an internet cafe so early in the day; first I'm unemployed and seeking work. Second, I made two videos this week and planned on coming into a cafe today to upload both of them.
My Aussie Politics video has garnered a lot of traffic. I guess you jokers love politics. I'm not planning on making any more politics videos in the near future. It's a seriously depressing subject. I hated making the Aussie Politics video. I made it because I wanted to deviate from the analyses for a spell, but I'm regretting doing that. Next time I deviate from the analyses it'll be for a Philosophy video, probably.
Oh, the video has finished uploading. Now all I have to do wait for those blasted thumbnails to appear and add it to my playlists.
Oh goody, I managed to get a good selection of thumbnails this time.
I'll be back in half an hour with another video go I can't really say "goodbye, internet", so, uhh, back in a bit, internet.
