This is an obligatory post. I am posting an update on everything I have been doing.
I haven't done anything amazing. I printed some stickers, launched a potato gun, and have had other assorted fun.
Oh, and Mr. Miles sent me outside.
Damn you Mr. Miles. I will win, I swear!
Spartans, what is your proffession?!?

I have just returned from the Maker Faire, and there is but one word to describe it: awesome. I will try to recount the events as best as I can. After parking, we made our way to the main entrance. Nothing seemed that special about this gathering, but as we walked through the parking lot, we saw a person holding some device in their hand, and a robot trailing behind them. This was my first clue that the Maker Faire was my kind of fair. Then there was the people. We overheard that 45,000 people had attended, twice the amount of the year before. Suddenly, I heard a loud boom and saw a mushroom cloud of fire burst into the air in the distance. That's enough clues for me. The San Mateo fairgrounds are quite large, and every square inch contained a person or an invention, and sometimes both. I was happy to see Sparkfun Electronics there, demoing a picture-frame tetris game. Very neat indeed. We also had some fun on a bicycle pedal powered ferris wheel, and we even saw Justin from Justin.tv!
What else did I miss? There were at least five 3d printers, most notably Fab@Home. One of them even printed things out of sugar! The things it made looked really good, but a sign said "Do not touch" and I assumed they also did not want me to eat it, either. It's not just a nerd event, almost everyone there came as a family. I really reccomend that you go tommorow for the second day, and make sure you get there right at 10:00. Remember the word: Awesome. I would definetley go again next year.

I am a vegitarian. And I think you should all consider becoming one yourselves. I know many of you love meat, and I am probably just punching a brick wall trying to change your ways. Just watch this entire video and think about what you do every day when you wolf down a hamburger.

Well, since I showed everyone the Demotivators website (despair.com), I don't think anyone really needs me to post the other sections of the demotivators. If you want to go to the website, wait until you're feeling really good about yourself so you'll lose all your motivation. Also, If anybody knows anyone who is far too motivated, introduce them to this site. Please. And try to say variations of "motivation" and "demotivation" like I have, redundantly and pointlessly.

Twitter is a cool new MySpace-esque internet site. Except cooler than myspace. Basically, you post on it what you are doing through the web, IM, or a text message, and all your friends can see it. As you can see, I added my current twitter status to the right over there, under the always nifty "Quote of the Day". My screenname on twitter is kingkael, so just add me to your friends, all right?

Yo. I'm Narf. I was here a while ago... but I got lazy and didn't post much. I'll do better this time.
Here's a list of good demotivators when you feel too good about yourself [part 1]
• You can do anything you set your mind to when you have vision, determination, and an endless supply of expendable labor.
• That which does not kill me postpones the inevitable.
• The best leaders inspire by example. When that's not an option, brute intimidation works pretty well, too.
• If you're attractive enough on the outside, people will forgive you for being irritating to the core.
• The secret to success is knowing who to blame for your failures.
• When the winds of change blow hard enough, the most trivial of things can become deadly projectiles.
• There are no stupid questions, but there are a LOT of inquisitive idiots.
• Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be
• You were meant for me. Perhaps as a punishment.
I'll continue these over the next few days, probably as a four part set
I think I forgot to post Ketchup Part II. Whoops.
And now for...
Kael Reviews: Disturbia
Shia LeBouf (aka "The Even Stevens Guy") plays a character coincidentally named Kale in the drama/horror flick Disturbia. I usually don't like to see horror movies, but something made me think this movie was better than the rest of the pack. And it was. The idea was a good one: A teenager suspects his neighbor is a serial killer, but is unable to do anything because he is under house arrest. The movie starts out with a scary scene of a car crash in which Kale's father is killed, and then cuts to him in highschool three years later. The only real complaint I have about this movie is the title, which seems like a failed attempt to combine the words "Disturb" and "Suburbia". Beyond that, I suggest you all go out and see this movie.
Score:4.8 out of 5
