This is getting creepy.

A few weeks ago, my mother asked if I knew a certain man who lived nearby. I didn't but replied "let me guess....he died a few weeks ago". She hesitated, and confirmed it, then asked if Daddy had told me. He hadn't.

Earlier today, I had the seat next to the door in CIS 106. This class tends to have a dozen-odd students coming in late, and several had indeed walked in since the teacher had stepped out. I was facing the front of the room, and the door was behind me, yet I though "it's him" the exact moment the teacher came through the door.

Last week, I checked the LiveJournal of acclaimed webcomicist(?) Faith E. Hicks, and was spoiled for the movie Serenity. In my reply to her post, I promised great vengeance for spoilering. (In case you were wondering, it was out in the open, not behind a cut, and she was going on about He-Man and Skeletor and characters being killed. It was one of those "I just can't keep it pent up anymore!" spoilers.)
I wasn't going to stone you until you pointed out that you had written a spoiler. Then I automatically went back to look for it. By the time I realized that I shouldn't, it was too late.

My vengeance shall be swift and unmerciful. If you wanted to spoiler, scream into an old hollow tree, or a washing machine, or something.

faith is a poopieheadyou should read AG nowYeah, I know, kinda creepy. The plan was for me to create a joke flame image and post it. Which I did, sans the actual posting. That's it on the left. What's on the right is today's Applegeeks. Check out the last panel.

For years now, I've wondered if I'm psychic. The only thing I've had to go on was a feeling of Deja Vu for the first time I did something, then again the second time. It's just weird, really. Too bad I can't consciously use this power, or whatever it is, if it actually is anything.


EDIT//December 2nd



The following contains spoilers for the Book/Season 1: Water finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Proceed at your own risk.



While watching the Season 1 finale for Avatar, I thought, for no reason I could think of; "Dulce Et Decorum Est". I recognized the line; I learned it in eighth grade, from the eponymous poem. The full phrase is "Dulce et decorum est/Pro patria mori" and is a line from Horace meaning "it is sweet and noble to die for one's country". I automatically associated this line with Zuko, and figured that it would make a nice icon. Except Zuko's not dead, and if I slapped it in 12pt Palatino Linotype over a ganked graphic of whatever character were to die, it would be an instant spoiler to anyone who recognized the phrase. I filed it away.

Later on in the episode, one of the characters in the episode effectively dies. The chances that I would remember a line from one of, if not the best of, my favorite WW2 poeems in an show dealing with classical Greek elements with strong Chinese influences is unlikely, to say the least, but not particularly improbable.


And besides that: is it just me, or does the editor of this video seem a little smug?
