Level 42, aka another shitty throwing star level. In the old days of leveling, I thought I got through this bullshit, but alas, another throwing star for weeks.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

So does this mean I'm better than number 1, or so low on the list that I don't deserve to be on the list?

Yeah, I'll soon be all like "Uhh yeah, I recall applying to you." The agencies I never remember where I even found them from, particularly that one for the hospital. Apply to them not remembering where I heard them, get a job from them five months later.

I still get some "We are sorry" responses from jobs I applied to in January... my wife heard back from a job A YEAR later. They wanted to hire her... what do those guys think? That you just sent one application and then sit at home and wait for them to reply?

Also, it's important not to get disappointed and stop applying for jobs if you don't find anything in the first few weeks. Persistence is the key!
I've been job searching for YEARS so a few weeks is really nothing. I'd like to see that I get a permanent job sometime this year.

Yeah, but you haven't sent out 20+ CVs per week all this time, have you? :P
I say, keep this rate up and you should find something.

Yep, I quite like the new character. Moving away from the Final Fantasy stigma is good. I just feel put off by the series considering their modern bullshit. I don't hate it by all means but I'm not as proud of the series as I once was.
I haven't played any FF since X-2. I do own XII, but it's just a matter of time... plus, there are so many other games in the way, haha.
Don't even bother with XII but if you had to play that or XIII, go with XII.

I have to play it at some point. My goal is to play every game I own at least once, haha.

No Twitter nor Facebook then. Fairplay.
None of this bullshit.
That's where I mostly am these days. It could be to the point where my Newgrounds contacts will only be spoken to on there. :P

:(

And all because I was too young at the time? No, that wasn't ever my name but it's an example of a horrendous name. I only wish Last.fm will eventually implement namechanging, even if they'll have a small fee to do that. Hey, that's one way for them to get money so they should go ahead and do it!
Kids need to learn that their actions have consequences!
But at least give them the chance to have a better name.

You could alway create a new account. Also, there's no point in "being evil" if you can't let others suffer.

*I went for a run this morning and on the way, I was treated to Poison, by Alice Cooper. The very next song was Poison, albeit live at Donnington. Now, that can happen, so I allowed it to play and continued my torture. This afternoon, I headed into town, to various tunes. Heading out of Halfords, I was playing Powerslave, from Live After Death. When that finishes, the iPod lurches straight into Powerslave from the album of the same name. Stunned, I recall the run and skip a track, to get something slightly different. Lo and behold, I ended up with powerslave from Flight 666.

Being a sad nutcase, I had to work out the probability of this happening. Apparently, with the amount of tunes I have on my iPod, the chances are 1 in about 7,500, which equates to roughly 0.013%. I feel special.

I've NEVER played Risk. Playing life risks, though, I've done that many times.

Suffice to say, it takes a long time.

It can be difficult to entirely forget about her. I think you can understand why it'll be a long time until there's a day when not once do I think of her. Hopefully life turns around soon enough and I'll have new things to keep me occupied. You know, like working full-time or finding a new partner. Not to worry, I can never rush into a new relationship considering what I've told you here. I'm really not the guy who could easily jump from one to another like she did. Again, I know so few girls who aren't taken. However, I am seeing about reaching out somewhere on the internet.
Try telling me that - I had almost 5 years with Bex and she is still a part of my life. She tried to invite herself to my 30th birthday party and only stopped when I said "you're not invited because my best friend hates you." I'd never planned to ask her to it anyway, as we're not friends like that any more.
It's not even been a year since I knew my ex. I first heard her name around this time last year but it wasn't until August when I actually met her. As time progressed she became one of my best friends and eventually, the relationship but now it's all staying away from each other. At least it wasn't a few years down the drain for me since the last thing I need in my life is wasting even more time.

We were friends for about 18 months to two years, before we got together. Yeah, a few guys did console me after I'd fallen out with another ex, by saying "relax Coop, there's always Becky." Thanks, guys.

The whole thing about Bex inviting herself to your 30th kinda reminds me of the one who I was trying to date back in 2009. She did invite herself to my 19th birthday party but she couldn't make it in the end. A week later she expressed her love to me but that all went within six weeks. Also, generally I wouldn't give out the names of my ex like how Bex has been established here. Although, if you were on Facebook you could easily find out her name but you could also find out the name of my parents and such. Infact, anyone who has me friended on there can do just that...

Yeah, but people know about me and Bex, plus she attended a couple of meets. I think that if she had a problem with it, she would have said by now.

Something like a week since my last post here? I really am slipping around here. Some replies from Metal-Therapy would be awesome, though. :P You know what else would be awesome? My personal life being free of drama for the week ahead. I've dealt with enough bullshit over the last 7 days.

True, I've not gone CV sending sprees like that and I'd like to do it some more soon. For now some job opportunities have appeared so while I'm going to hear out from them, I'll still keep applying to other places. Just gotta keep all those options open.

Don't even bother with XII but if you had to play that or XIII, go with XII.
I have to play it at some point. My goal is to play every game I own at least once, haha.

Just sell those FF games and then it's no longer an issue. :D

That's where I mostly am these days. It could be to the point where my Newgrounds contacts will only be spoken to on there. :P

Sorry man but NG has been low priority for most of my internet time now. The only priority now is to pick up the EXP at the start of the day.

Heh, for me they're all "There's still plenty of fish in the sea." Well guess what, there's no fucking fish in the sea around here. It's a fucking dump and I've got no future sitting around here for the rest of my life. Maybe I'll find someone within the north west region but I have this feeling that to find my true partner I'm gonna need to take a further distance. Maybe I could find someone in Manchester but this county? Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffft. If I'm wrong, I won't be angry but after seeing my life here for almost 23 years now, I know where I stand with my local area.

Perhaps you know my sister's name but that was only because my tongue slipped at the time. Although, I think you're trustworthy enough to know her name.

I'm still here. I've got a notepad file with replies from page 3002 that I'm still working on here and there. (I'm also still pondering how to reply to Mr. Coop pulling a gun on me in the middle of class, though. Seriously in bad taste. :P ) Anyway, I'm going to see Rush this Thursday (finally!) then going on vacation to visit family shortly after that. I'll try to get something other than a congrats list posted before then, though.

I hate to rain on your parade, but you may want to take a look at the birthday problem and do the math again. I'm afraid you are not THAT special. :P

Allow me to expand on what I worked out yesterday:

The probability of getting Poison or the live version was 2 in 2260, thus 1 in 1130. The probability of getting the second one straight after it was a further 1 in 2259. Adding those two probabilities together, gives me a chance of 1 in 3389. Powerslave was more complex, being three versions, so 1 in 752.67, 1 in 1128.5 and 1 in 2256. Adding those together gives me a 1 in 4137.17 chance of success.

Now technically, I could multiply those together, as they did not happen directly after one another, but I still assumed that this would make the answers very wrong, so I added the probabilities together, as each song is mutually exclusive, thus a total probability of 1 in 7526.17

Care to explain my error, rather than linking to Wiki? I think that we're talking 2,260 different, random possibilities here, none of which repeat, as opposed to people being born on a day 1-366 and coming back with the chances of two that have the same number. We're not talking Poison playing and then the same version of the same song playing, as I do not have shuffle repeat on. That same song cannot be played. I was talking about the album edit, then a live version playing and in Powerslave's case, a live version, the album edit, then a DIFFERENT live version playing one after the other.

At least it wasn't a few years down the drain for me since the last thing I need in my life is wasting even more time.
We were friends for about 18 months to two years, before we got together. Yeah, a few guys did console me after I'd fallen out with another ex, by saying "relax Coop, there's always Becky." Thanks, guys.
Heh, for me they're all "There's still plenty of fish in the sea." Well guess what, there's no fucking fish in the sea around here. It's a fucking dump and I've got no future sitting around here for the rest of my life. Maybe I'll find someone within the north west region but I have this feeling that to find my true partner I'm gonna need to take a further distance. Maybe I could find someone in Manchester but this county? Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffft. If I'm wrong, I won't be angry but after seeing my life here for almost 23 years now, I know where I stand with my local area.

I'm looking at actually buying a house in Worcester, which is about 10-15 miles from home. Maybe that will be some way of turning my relationship fortunes around?

The whole thing about Bex inviting herself to your 30th kinda reminds me of the one who I was trying to date back in 2009. She did invite herself to my 19th birthday party but she couldn't make it in the end. A week later she expressed her love to me but that all went within six weeks. Also, generally I wouldn't give out the names of my ex like how Bex has been established here. Although, if you were on Facebook you could easily find out her name but you could also find out the name of my parents and such. Infact, anyone who has me friended on there can do just that...
Yeah, but people know about me and Bex, plus she attended a couple of meets. I think that if she had a problem with it, she would have said by now.
Yeah, you have a point there, although one could still find the name of my ex. At least I don't wave around the name of family and friends on the internet. Perhaps you know my sister's name but that was only because my tongue slipped at the time. Although, I think you're trustworthy enough to know her name.

I can't remember it, don't worry, your secret is safe with me :P

Indeed. This month is going to be a good/big month for Blams.

I'm gunning for 20 straight days with a Blam - next stop, 3 weeks!

I still get some "We are sorry" responses from jobs I applied to in January... my wife heard back from a job A YEAR later. They wanted to hire her... what do those guys think? That you just sent one application and then sit at home and wait for them to reply?
Heh, that is one hell of a long response but at least they did reach out to her after a while. If she wasn't working at all, that would have been a miracle.

True that. I much rather hear back from a job than not hearing back. Even if it is a negative response.

I've been job searching for YEARS so a few weeks is really nothing. I'd like to see that I get a permanent job sometime this year.
Yeah, but you haven't sent out 20+ CVs per week all this time, have you? :P
I say, keep this rate up and you should find something.
True, I've not gone CV sending sprees like that and I'd like to do it some more soon. For now some job opportunities have appeared so while I'm going to hear out from them, I'll still keep applying to other places. Just gotta keep all those options open.

Yeah, that's what I always did as well: As long as I don't have a job, I keep applying, even if some opportunities open up.

Don't even bother with XII but if you had to play that or XIII, go with XII.
I have to play it at some point. My goal is to play every game I own at least once, haha.
Just sell those FF games and then it's no longer an issue. :D

Sorry, that is not an option. :/

Sorry man but NG has been low priority for most of my internet time now. The only priority now is to pick up the EXP at the start of the day.

I understand that.

But at least give them the chance to have a better name.
You could alway create a new account. Also, there's no point in "being evil" if you can't let others suffer.
I am tempted to make a new Last.fm but I don't want to throw 7 years of my music history away like that. They'll have to make the option to change names sooner or later.

Maybe they are evil enough not to do it?

I hate to rain on your parade, but you may want to take a look at the birthday problem and do the math again. I'm afraid you are not THAT special. :P
Allow me to expand on what I worked out yesterday:

The probability of getting Poison or the live version was 2 in 2260, thus 1 in 1130. The probability of getting the second one straight after it was a further 1 in 2259. Adding those two probabilities together, gives me a chance of 1 in 3389. Powerslave was more complex, being three versions, so 1 in 752.67, 1 in 1128.5 and 1 in 2256. Adding those together gives me a 1 in 4137.17 chance of success.

Now technically, I could multiply those together, as they did not happen directly after one another, but I still assumed that this would make the answers very wrong, so I added the probabilities together, as each song is mutually exclusive, thus a total probability of 1 in 7526.17

Care to explain my error, rather than linking to Wiki? I think that we're talking 2,260 different, random possibilities here, none of which repeat, as opposed to people being born on a day 1-366 and coming back with the chances of two that have the same number. We're not talking Poison playing and then the same version of the same song playing, as I do not have shuffle repeat on. That same song cannot be played. I was talking about the album edit, then a live version playing and in Powerslave's case, a live version, the album edit, then a DIFFERENT live version playing one after the other.

Well, I guess I didn't read your post carefully enough. Your question is different from the birthday problem, this is true.
BUT: You say that the same song cannot be played twice. So you have to take into account how many songs did you listen to before that special event occured? If the same song cannot be played twice, it's impossible for any song to reappear in between the two "Poison"s if you already listened to it.

You also have to take into account how the shuffle algorithm works. Does it play songs "at random" or does it keep an internal list and will give you the same song order as long as you don't turn it off (ie, if you skip back a track, will it play the same track you listened to before skipping back)? If it plays "at random", you'd have to figure out, exactly how "random" the randomizer is. I guess, it would just be a pseudo-random number (would be too much of a hassle to implement a "true random number generator" into an iPod) and the math you worked out wouldn't be too accurate in that case.

TL;DR: For a rough estimate, I guess you math is fine and I was wrong. ;)
