Eudaimonia

Eudaimonia Hi, my name is Eric. Eudaimonia has it's roots in Greek philosophy and pertains to the value in living an objectively good life. It doesn't necessarily prescribe happiness at all points (and in fact necessitates that we do not always experience it) in life, but describes 'good' living as that which is consistent with your self-tested and derived values based on your experiences. There is a lot of room to discuss what we might call 'good' and by whom we measure such things. I generally see humanizing behavior as being of higher value, and being more reflective of a 'good' and 'virtuous' persona. Many of the things I write and say are based in these thoughts, both about myself and others. I'm not afraid to criticize intent because intent itself requires belief to function. Those beliefs will guide the people I interact with when I'm not present in front of them, and therefore to maximize the extent of my own influence I must be open to receiving criticism, dishing it out fairly, and be critical of myself. What's good, seeks to get better. If you hold the belief that humanity has inherent value and is worth fighting for, come share knowledge with me.

My staff is warming up to me. Apparently a little dancing, some ego stroking, helping with egress problems and breaking jams has gone a long way. They know that I’m very inexperienced (on the heaviest belt too) but they also know that I’m here to help. That I don’t really stop till we’re all wrapped up.

It’s been 2 weeks and I think I’m getting the hang of this.

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired
i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do


what a time to be alive

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.

Oh god that’s beautiful.

UM EXCUSE ME THOS E ARE FUCKING PIXELS HOW

Seize the Day was a calendar program made by in 1994 by Buena Vista software. It features graphics that at the time, were revolutionary because of the way they handled color cycling. These images were static bitmaps, but by changing color values, they appear animated. What is also impressive about these images is that they had full day night cycles built in, rendered also through color cycling.
A few years ago, a html5 version was made. A copy was uncovered online and there is a way to use the program through DOSbox. As well, one of the original programmers for the project, Iam Gilman, has thought of the idea of remaking it, open sourced, for modern machines.

thanks for writing a more elaborate explanation. i’ve seen these pictures be spread like wildfire without mention of the technology behind it.

Oh, I remember the html5 version from a while back.

i really appreciate the WHOLE BACKSTORY ON THIS FUKr

aaaaaah perfection!!! i love pixels.
