What does your room look like? Answered

Hey peeps, me again filling up the forums. I thought, before my room got messy again in about an hour, I'd video a walkthrough I had been wanting to do for a while of my room. I'll update the video with one that's more detailed. Sorry about the video, for some reason youtube doesn't have very good decoders for mov files, guess I gotta do it by hand before uploading.. Post your pictures or videos of your geek lair for the world to see!



I'm just kinda noticing now that I missed a lot of details in the video, so an update may follow perhaps.

Update:



New vid, new stereo, new crt monitor, god help me with my engine!

Excuse the drunkeness sounding voice I have, that's part fault on the built in mic the mac has and my rather excessive pot use lately.

Hmmm, last time I checked, maujuanna doesn't damage your brain. Makes you a little slower if you haven't had much for a while. It makes me rather sharp on quick on the tongue. All it does really is just get tar in your lungs, not even as bad as ciggerettes, which I'm sure you or someone in your family probably does, my mother does.

Perhaps I meant nothing more than "time spent smoking is probably time not spent doing something else."

Well aye. But there's also time spent drinking, sunbathing, having a long lie-in etc.I've known people to have a smoke and do some creative things. E.g. fashioning a moped exhaust system from beer-cans, aluminium tape, pipe clips, it looked pretty good. However, he'd forgotten to take the suspension into account, so when it was ridden the whole thing flexed and fell off... Some things are better done with a clear head.

I would claim that pretty near everything is better done with a clear head.

I'm trying not to be rightious; I just don't see the point. But then I've always been rather ascetic...

But had he not had a "smoke" then he wouldn't have had ANY exhaust.

Yeah, I suppose a few hours work was worth a few minutes of exhaust. It is loud without...

Oh, I thought you were talking about a car or t-ruck. I imagine that moped would be fun to drive around in the mystic looking bog area he lives in after a "smoke". Any other death-inviting contraptions he's come up with yet?

you ever heard the buffalo thereoy? (i know i spelled it wrong) when buffalos are being hunted the slowest one gets killed first now, as you know marajuana attacks the brain and it would attack the slowest brain cells making your brain faster right?

Your perception of irony is a little mis-strewed apparently. I see what you mean, but irony doesn't quite fit here. Besides, if it killed brain cells, you would feel it the next morning, that's exactly what a hangover is, because of the damage to your brain cells, when you aren't impaired, you feel it. In the case of this, as I would know, I never feel it in the morning, when I wake up, I feel like I've always felt, albiet a bit sharper.

A mind works differently under the influence of marijuhana, this is not necessarily a waste. Although most of the time it doesn't amount to much, unless you're an artist... L

For me I tend to be able to focus on stuff more and get things done quicker which is almost the exact opposite of what it's supposed to do. Sometimes it's just so I can go on youtube and laugh my ass off for about 2 hours.

An amazing, most under-rated band. (The name probably had something to do with the more critical than commercial success...)

I meant it's so packed with junk there's not much space to move around in , like in a submarine. But maybe I should check to see if my room is below sea level. It might be.

IMG_0807.JPG should have been rotated 90o I rotated my head, which wasn't good 'cos I've got a bad neck. Anyway, what's lurking to the left of the straw hat?

It's an Ikea chair. Very comfortable. It has nice curves. I would rather a $300 chair, but this is fine.

I have a really nice leather chair, but unfortunatly the gas cylinder is busted and it slowly sinks down, so it does me no good. By the way, if you know what the cartoon "Blockhead" is, I'm making a tongs homage to him on my wall above my window/stereo, it's gonna be good. I've already got giant sized tongs.

Used to be a kid's bedroom. They're space-things, and the green ones are phosphorecsent. I could probably paint over, but i don't really care...

Heh. Out "room"?! Some of us are twice your age and have whole houses to fill up, plus an office. The Instructables staff has enough spare parking lot to fill with shipping containers full of their stuff... Here's most of the "active" part of my office. At this time, I decline to clarify which equipment is doing useful work and which is the result of dumpster diving :-)

Wait wait, you're isntructable staff? And that looks pretty neat there, is that just one server rack you've got? Nice vintage tv btw. I thought my room was messy before I cleaned it up, although my carpet turned a whole nother colour when I vacumed it :p

No , I'm not I. Staff; the containers in the parking lot were one of the things Eric pointed out at Nerd Pride Movie night when I went. My office is at an entirely different place, where parking lots are annoyingly full. There are no TVs; you're probably referring to the vintage H29 computer terminal (in the rack?)

Yes rather the terminal I meant, for a second it looked like a tv.
